How did the ancients survive previous axial tilts long enough to observe cyclic destructions and encode their knowledge into the Zodiac. Only astute readers would ask this question. First off, the ice core temperature records suggest that the polar configuration was stable for over 400,000 years, but this does not preclude axial tilts. However, the evidence for all previous axial tilts suggest that they were of a different character, all previous North Poles being more or less at the same latitude. It is my contention that the last axial tilt was spectacular because it was caused by the explosion of Proto-Saturn. The existence of the Zodiac itself suggest that “normal” axial tilts are more survivable. This would explain the dire predictions found in the New Testament such as “for then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” This statement is mirrored by the prophet Daniel when he said, “there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation.” It would also explain the motivation of those in control of the granite tunnels in the Front Range batholith. This is indeed a one-shot opportunity to vastly reduce Earth population.
