Graham Hancock is a British writer and reporter. He specializes in theories involving ancient civilizations, stone monuments or megaliths, altered states of consciousness, ancient myths, and astronomical and astrological data from the past. In the video below, Graham reveals evidence displaying, beyond the reasonable doubt, an advanced civilization flourishing during the Ice Age, was destroyed in the global cataclysms between 12,800 and 11,600 years ago.
Hancock believes there were indeed survivors, known to later cultures by names including ‘the Sages’, ‘the Magicians’, ‘the Shining Ones’, and ‘the Mystery Teachers of Heaven’. He reviews the evidence and arguments, the new archaeology, and intriguing genetic links, bringing us closer to the truth of what he believes actually happened during lost periods in human history. Hancock suggests, the survivors of earth’s lost civilizations left us unmistakable clues, in the form of advanced technology, as well as ancient ruins.
Hancock maintains the ‘the Sages’ traveled the world in great ships doing everything in their power to keep the spark of civilization burning. He believes they settled at key locations across the globe, including Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, Baalbek in the Lebanon, Giza in Egypt, ancient Sumer, in Mexico, Peru and across the Pacific (where a huge pyramid has recently been discovered in Indonesia.)
According to Hancock’s research, everywhere these ‘Magicians of the Gods’ went, they apparently brought with them the memory of a time when mankind had fallen out of harmony with the universe, and ‘paid a heavy price.’
Hancock alludes to evidence a planetary awakening is underway:
“The birth of a new, or potentially, an old form of human consciousness, thought to be long since lost, is underway.”
Graham comes to these conclusions via various clues scattered across the world in ancient myths, maps, and monuments, which have uncanny similarities. He speaks of deliberately buried time-capsules, mysterious twelve thousand-year-old sites, like Gunung Padang, located in Indonesia, and Gobekli Tepe in Turkey. He believes these clues have been designed to reawaken humanity at a time when an advanced global civilization once again emerges. He believes this time in the present.
The Younger Dryas is considered a crucial period for humanity. It coincides with the emergence of agriculture and the first Neolithic civilizations.
Before the strike, vast areas of wild wheat and barley allowed nomadic hunters in the Middle East to establish permanent base camps. The difficult climate conditions following the impact forced communities to come together and figure out new ways of maintaining crops, through both watering and selective breeding. Farming was born, allowing the rise of the first towns.
Ancient stone carvings confirm a comet struck the Earth around 11,000BC. It was a devastating event wiped out woolly mammoths, and sparking the rise of civilization.
Experts at the University of Edinburgh analyzed the mysterious symbols carved onto stone pillars located at Gobekli Tepe in southern Turkey, to find out if they could be linked to constellations, and ultimately have a correlation to the Great Flood. The markings suggest a swarm of comet fragments hit Earth during a mini-ice age when it first struck, changing the entire course of human history.
Ancient stone carvings show a comet swarm hitting Earth around 10,950 BCE.
Scientists have speculated for decades a comet could be behind the sudden fall in temperature during a period known as the Younger Dryas. Dr. Martin Sweatman, of the University of Edinburgh’s School of Engineering, who led the research, said:
“I think this research, along with the recent finding of a widespread platinum anomaly across the North American continent virtually seal the case favoring (a Younger Dryas comet impact). Our work serves to reinforce that physical evidence. What is happening here is the process of paradigm change. It appears Göbekli Tepe was, among other things, an observatory for monitoring the night sky. One of its pillars seems to have served as a memorial to this devastating event – probably the worst day in history since the end of the ice age.”
Gobekli Tepe is thought to be the world’s oldest temple site, which dates from around 9,000BC, predating Stonehenge by around 6,000 years. Researchers believe the images were intended as a record of the cataclysmic event. One of the carvings depicts a headless man, may indicate human disaster and extensive loss of life.
Symbolism on the pillars indicates the long-term changes in Earth’s rotational axis. This was recorded using an early form of writing. Gobekli Tepe was an observatory for meteors and comets. Despite the ancient age of the pillars, Dr. Sweatman does not believe it is the earliest example of astronomy in the archaeological record.
“Many paleolithic cave paintings and artifacts with similar animal symbols and other repeated symbols suggest astronomy could be ancient indeed,” he said. “Consider, according to astronomers, this giant comet probably arrived in the inner solar system some 20 to 30 thousand years ago, and it would have been a visible and dominant feature of the night sky, it is hard to see how ancient people could have ignored this given the likely consequences.”
