PAGE STATUS: Solon dates 9500 BC. No further chronological evidence is needed. This epoch marks the end of the Pleistocene and start of the Holocene. It is characterized by a widely deposited “black mat,” countless gazillions of microspherules and nanodiamonds, titanomagnetite grains, the extinction of megafauna (very large mammals such as sloths, mastodons, mammoths) and the Clovis People in North America, and unimaginable megafloods resulting from an inexplicably fast melting of ice sheets in North America. No one describes what happened at that time better than D. S. Allan and J. B. Delair in “Cataclysm!: Compelling Evidence of a Cosmic Catastrophe in 9500 B.C.” The planet was almost completely destroyed. However, in what is for me almost inexplicable, NO ONE has ever put two and two together to explain what happened. And now there is a growing consensus around an asteroid impact. That’s not it. This page is closely related to № 44. Dolmens and the Mound Builders because dolmens were makeshift bomb shelters used when people were far aware from their primary residences.
LAST UPDATE: November 12, 2020
There are many theories as to what happened. The most official sounding one is the “Younger Dryas impact hypothesis,” which is backed by a number of mainstream scientists (who imagine themselves as taking a radical stand). There are simply too many events to support a fragmented asteroid theory. The meltwater pulses (e.g. 1A, 1B) and the Mississippi River superflood events (e.g. MWF-5) were separated by too much time. In fact, I find it almost comical that the people backing this theory poke fun at mainstream science and then turn around and propose something equally ridiculous. As stated by Dr. Paul A. LaViolette:
The Cause of the Megafaunal Extinction:
Supernova or Galactic Core Outburst?
Twenty-Two Problems with the Firestone-West Supernova Comet Theory
Paul A. LaViolette, Ph.D.
Extended versus discrete duration. The energetics triggering the YD boundary firestorm in the superwave theory come primarily from the scorching effects of a ground contacting CME, the Sun becoming overly active due to the high concentrations of nebular material invading the solar system. In the Firestone-West theory, on the other hand, the energy would come mainly from the kinetic energy of the impacting comet fragments. The preexisting superwave theory predicts a temporally extended effect transpiring over several thousand years with a climax at the AL/YD boundary, whereas the Firestone-West scenario involves discrete impact events with debris presumably settling to the ground within a few years. To explain meltwater peaks and radiocarbon peaks occurring at earlier climatic boundaries, e.g., around 17,000 and 18,000 years BP, they propose an earlier wave of cometary onslaughts. Thus although comet impacts are inherently a temporally discrete phenomenon, to make their theory account for these earlier geologic events, they propose earlier bombardments associated with the passage of a more leading part of the supernova shell and presumably traveling at a higher speed, around 2500 -3200 km/s. Thus for effects to be spread out over this length of time, their proposed supernova remnant shell is inferred to be about 50 light years thick. [bold-red emphasis added] —4.

The Goddess Venus is Born
The key to understanding what happened in 9500 BC is the realization that Earth was still in close proximity to the gas giants Proto-Saturn and Jupiter during the birth of Venus. In other words, the answer everyone seeks for 9500 BC is not an impact crater. It is the afterbirth of Venus. Earth was still within Proto-Saturn’s magnetosphere when Venus was born. Proto-Saturn would have gravitationally attracted not only the planet Venus but its “afterbirth” (so-to-speak) also. No one would disagree with this statement. Yet no one has stopped to contemplate the consequences of being that close to the gas giants when a rocky planet is expelled from Jupiter. Combine this with the worship of a pregnant Venus for thousands of years afterwords and you arrive at the logical conclusion that 9500 BC was indeed a highly unusual, not some ordinary, run-of-the-mill impact event.
Worship of the Goddess Venus
It is important to realize that Venus was being worship because of its beauty in the polar configuration of the planets as well as the fact that the birth of Venus inaugurated a very long period of time in which there was an abundance of food available.

“Catastrophe at 12,900 BP (excerpt from Cosmic Grail series) w/ Randall Carlson (2015)” from the GeoCosmic REX channel:
From “Stone Age Divas”
No Cometary Impact Path
This argument is at the top of this page because I think it is “peer reviewed” and critical evidence against the Younger Dryas impact hypothesis. The paper deserves derision for arguing against the possibility of anything catastrophic happening merely because of the age of the solar system, but it is extremely useful in denying the validity of the Younger Dryas Impact hypothesis.
Too wide an area and as the multiple floods show, there were too many events.
An extraterrestrial impact in such recent history is not a trivial thing to suggest, Betancourt said. “It would imply that human society is at much greater risk than we have thought.” ―Julio Betancourt, of the Tucson USGS office from “New doubt is cast on comet as big-animal killer” on tucson.com
What do you imagine Mr. Betancourt would say if he knew that what actually happened was not a mere asteroid impact but the entire solar system reconfigured and Proto-Saturn exploded in the process.
Having ruled out the Younger Dryas impact hypothesis, there is nothing else that can account for the level of destruction in the 9500 BC event as described in the book “Cataclysm!: Compelling Evidence of a Cosmic Catastrophe in 9500.” Nothing! There is nothing else that can explain the so-called ice age (energy) paradox. Nothing!
What else could so totally destroy the world?
This is like pissing in the wind because no one is listening. Please forgive the vulgarity but I live in a world that is on the verge of total destruction and my fellow human beings can think of nothing more than President Trump. The hypnotic state is boring if nothing else. Nevertheless, after months of floundering not knowing if my internal guidance system was still in operation, I watched the following YouTube video entitled “Last Extinction.Nova” on the King Ashur channel.
I catch hell for describing what happened as Saturn “exploding” (even thoughVelikovsky did the same) and for saying “plasma rained from the sky.” But if Saturn was our primordial sun how else should we describe the ejecta other than as plasma? And I can assure you it rained down over a very long period of time because that is why the giants who inhabited North America at the time built all those bomb shelters.
The Ice Age (energy) Paradox Solved
The closer one gets to the truth about our past, the more interrelated is everything. Eventually, there emerges a clear picture of what really happened. This is particularly true of what has been dubbed the “ice age (energy) paradox.” If you are already familiar with this subject, you may want to skip the remainder of this introductory section. This term refers to the rapid melting of the ice sheets in North America during the near total destruction of the planet in 9500 BC. It is called a “paradox” because of the estimated energy required to melt so much is astronomical and difficult to explain. Randall Carlson beats this drum better than most. Here are a couple videos of his on the subject for useful background information:
Try as he may, Randall Carlson falls short of the mark in fully conveying the level of destruction in 9500 BC. For that you need to read “Cataclysm! Compelling Evidence of a Cosmic Catastrophe in 9500 BC” by D.S. Allan & J.B. Delair. Carlson’s main foible is in focusing entirely on the melting ice and the death of the megafauna (Ancient Greek mégalo “large” + New Latin fauna “animal”) in North America. Allan and Delair go much further. After reading their book, you are left wondering how anyone or anything survived.
Immanuel Velikovsky said “ten thousand years ago”
In other places in his writing, Velikovsky equivocates somewhat on this date, but after years of careful thought I have come to realize that he was intellectually reaching out to us when he used the specific date of “ten thousand years ago” in the following passage from his “Saturn” paper:
“At a date that I would be hard put to task to identify even with approximation, but possibly about than [sic] ten thousand years ago, Saturn was disturbed by Jupiter and exploded, actually became a nova. The solar system and reaches beyond it were illuminated by the exploded star, and in a matter of a week the earth was enveloped in waters of Saturnian origin.”
With all he knew, even as humble a man as he was, Velikovsky would have wanted to make his best guess on the date. Ten thousand years ago would have been Great Cycle 3 at 8231 BC (10,248 years ago to be exact).
I would not discount for a minute that this is the actual date. As discussed in Radiocarbon Dating the Explosion of Proto-Saturn, the current state-of-the-art for chronological dating, like most of our so-called sciences is bizarrely flawed, ESPECIALLY and here I must really emphasize ESPECIALLY once you realize that our solar system is anything BUT stable. Be that as it may, the point is that there were two floods. One that created the oceans and utterly destroyed earth wiping out the memory of our species in the process and that of 3200 BC which was the result of an axial tilt and significantly less disastrous.
Thereupon one of the priests, who was of a very great age, said: O Solon, Solon, you Hellenes are never anything but children, and there is not an old man among you. Solon in return asked him what he meant. I mean to say, he replied, that in mind you are all young; there is no old opinion handed down among you by ancient tradition, nor any science which is hoary with age. And I will tell you why. There have been, and will be again, many destructions of mankind arising out of many causes; the greatest have been brought about by the agencies of fire and water, and other lesser ones by innumerable other causes. ―Timaeus By Plato
You need to understand that this is why Plato’s number is 216. Sacred number 216 is and ALWAYS has been a pointer to the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. Part of what makes this difficult to understand is that we do not appreciate the fact that in ancient times Central America was the intellectual center of the world, not India and not China. Despite the idiocy of the present generation, this calendar is the most profound creation in the entire history of mankind because we live on a defective planet subject to a cyclic destruction the timing of which is as accurate as a Swiss watch. The genealogy in the Old Testament is an attempt to count from one of these “Great Cycle” disasters to another. The Mesoamerican Long Count calendar knows that the time between these profound disturbances of the solar system is precisely 432 orbits of Jupiter.
