1014 AD impact event causes Atlantic tsunami and end of Aztecís Fourth Sun?
2012Quest ^ | January 12th, 2011 | Gary C. Daniels

The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle states that in England 1014 AD, on the eve of St. Michael’s day (September 28, 1014) “came the great sea-flood, which spread wide over this land, and ran so far up as it never did before, overwhelming many towns, and an innumerable multitude of people.” This is clearly a reference to a tsunami similar to the one that struck Indonesia in December 2004 which killed over 250,000 people.

What could have caused this tsunami? Could a meteor or comet impact in the Atlantic Ocean have been the cause? Researcher Dallas Abbott of the Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University discovered material in a bog at Black Rock Forest in Cornwall, New York that “is difficult to explain except with an impact event.” This material included impact glass and spherules that can only be created by the forces associated with a meteor or comet impact as well as marine sediments and fossils that were determined to have come from the mid-Atlantic ridge, over 3800 kilometers from Black Rock Forest. Abbott noted that “because these locations are so far away from Black Rock Forest, the only viable method for transporting the material to Black Rock Forest is an impact event.”

In other words, the evidence suggests that a comet or meteor slammed into the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and ejected material from the bottom of the ocean which flew over 3800 kilometers and landed in the bog at Black Rock Forest in New York. The material at Black Rock was dated to around 1014 AD. Abbott also noted that such an impact event would have also created a tsunami that would radiate out in all directions from the point of impact thus she began looking for evidence of such a tsunami.

In addition to the afore-mentioned tsunami in England on September 28, 1014 Abbott also found tsunami deposits in the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean that also dated to around 1014 AD. By noting the angle of the tsunami deposits in both England and the Lesser Antilles, Abbott was able to deduce the probable location of the impact in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. This also shows that the tsunami impacted the coastlines on both sides of the Atlantic and thus affected millions of people living along those coasts. This is likely the origins of the Aztec myth relating to the destruction of the Fourth Sun by a flood around 1011 AD as recorded on the Aztec Calendar Stone

Abbott also noted there was a “prominent ammonium anomaly,” i.e., an increase in ammonia in the atmosphere, as represented in Antarctic ice core data associated with the year 1014 AD. This same spike in atmospheric ammonia can be seen associated with two other known impact events: Tunguska, Russia on June 30, 1908 and the Brazilian Tunguska of August 13, 1930. This provides more supporting evidence for an impact event in 1014 AD.

The date of the tsunami, falling on the eve of St. Michael’s Day, is also interesting. The legends surrounding the Biblical character of Michael sound very reminiscent of an impact event:

“there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down - that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.” If the “dragon” was a comet and his “angels” were fragments of the comet as it broke up in the atmosphere then the story is a perfect metaphor for an impact event. Yet this passage from the book of Revelation was written over 2,000 years ago, a thousand years BEFORE the impact event of 1014 AD. So why was September 28 already associated with Michael? This suggests that Earth has experienced a previous cosmic impact on September 28 during a previous era which was the basis of the story in Revelation and the reason the date was devoted to Michael, the hero of the impact allegory. Thus could there be a predictable cycle of such impacts? Instead of viewing the ancient writings as prophecies could they be closer to forecasts based on a predictable cycle?

Not sure about the scientific accuracy, either.

For giant waves to reach Mexico and Central America from the mid-Atlantic, there would have to be a lot of geological evidence on Florida and Cuba and the Caribbean islands.

If it's there, I never heard about it.

Also would like to know more about the Great Flood in England in 1014.

There is a rare weather pattern that blows the North Sea directly up the Thames River with hurricane force winds.

Sounds somewhat similar.

“also found tsunami deposits in the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean that also dated to around 1014 AD”

Around 1014? And what, they rounded it off to 1014? Not 1015 or 1000??

Have you ever heard of a geological deposit being dated to within a single year?

They may as well have said “dated to around the 28th of September, 1014”.

The mention of a cycle interests me. As Earth orbits the Sun so does the Sun orbit the galactic center. Mankind has not been on Earth for an entire cycle of the Sun’s orbit yet.

The author seems not to have familiarity with the liturgical year. Not all feast days have a solid reason behind them...sometimes they are just commemorating an aspect of the faith or a person without historical connection. Sept. 28 is a feast day in honor of St. Michael in the Roman Church, but it was kept on different days elsewhere. It certainly doesn’t have to be grounded in some ancient impact event.

Otherwise though, some interesting info in this article.

Caused by SUVs, and the effects were channeled back in time by a space-time anomaly that was caused by Mitt Romney's hair being out of place.

928 A.D. Eric the Red sails to Greenland

1010? There may be(?) remains of Celtic forts or settlements including unoffiicial leaked oral reports by New York State Archaeologists of Viking timbers dated 1010, none later either than 1010, unearthed at New Baltimore, NY, approximately 120(?) miles N. of NY City on the Hudson River.

Did this Viking fort get wiped out by the Tsunanmi coming 120 miles up the Hudson River? New Baltimore is on the west bank of the Hudson River where it is split in two by Schodack Island. The NY State archaeologists are trying to do a hush-hush cover-up of this site up as well as the one in Hoosick Falls and others northeast of it in the Lake George/Champlain Valleys, as it would upset their historical agenda.The locals are keeping the locations of these other northern Celtic sites secret to keep the NY State Archies away. All are on private land.

cf. GF Times? or Albany Times-Union articles- do not know the date (2000?

Thanks dirtboy.

Just adding to the catalog, not sending a general distribution.

To all -- please ping me to other topics which are appropriate for the GGG list.

Mitt Romney’s hair being out of place.

Which happened at his corronation when GW Bush patted his head. So in the end it WAS Bush’s fault ...

Look at the constellation Hydra in proximity to Virgo, and then look at the Biblical prophecy in Revelation. Hydra is known as the dragon or the serpent. There could be something to it, I’ve long suspected Revelation had several meanings, one of which was astronomical/astrological, dealing with a so-called impact event.
