    A Massive Cosmic Impact caused a Global Cataclysm 12,980 years ago, and a second event 11,600 years ago which caused incredible destruction to planet Earth, and Humanity. (Most likely an Asteroid/Comet Impacted Earth - Perhaps in some way related to the legends of Nibiru and Planet X? Evidence from the Younger Dryas Boundary prove that a cosmic impact to the North American ice-shelf and caused a rapid rise in global sea level in excess of 400Ft (122M). This would also explain the more than 500 stories of a global flood, which is commonly referred to as the Deluge, or Noah's Ark flood. Could this also explain the lost civilization of Atlantis? There was also world wide temperature fluctuation of more than 15 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Now here's an interesting example of how little we know or understand regards factors affecting Earth's climate, especially over the span of millions or more of years ...

    Earth’s Rock Record Could Reveal the Motions of Other Planets

    Studying the layers of Earth’s crust, scientists have created a “Geological Orrery” to measure planetary motions dating back hundreds of millions of years
    ....


    On a planet like Earth, as the rock and the water go through cycles and changes, melting and cooling and eroding and accreting, stripped out in wide valleys and stacked up in towering mountains, the natural phenomena of the past leave traces behind in the crust of the planet. By coring out ancient ice, for example, scientists can study the trapped particles and learn about atmospheric conditions millions of years ago. By studying magnetic minerals embedded in ancient rock, geologists have learned that the magnetic field of the planet reverses poles—about once every 250,000 years on average.

    Scientists can learn a great deal about Earth from the geological layers of its crust, but even more information may be hidden within the rock record. According to geologist and paleontologist Paul Olsen of Columbia University, the keys to the history of not only our planet, but also the solar system and the galaxy may be found beneath our feet.

    In a study published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, Olsen and colleagues argue that astronomical cycles of the planets can be measured in terrestrial rock layers. Cylindrical cores of rock extracted from the ground, some stretching thousands of feet and spanning millions of years of history, may contain subtle traces of the influence of other planets’ gravity, allowing scientists to infer the historical positions of planets hundreds of millions of years ago.
    ...
    “This paper is an attempt to solve a very difficult and perplexing problem for astronomers and geologists who are interested in the history of the solar system, and how it has affected the Earth’s system—climate, sedimentation, etcetera,” says Spencer Lucas, a geologist and paleontologist at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science who was not involved in the study. “These astronomical cycles have evolved for hundreds of millions of years, and there’s a certain amount of chaos in that evolution, so it has always been a big challenge for geologists and astronomers to try to understand what happened to these cycles.”

    The layers of Earth’s crust represent a record of past climates, and those climates were influenced by celestial movements called Milankovitch cycles. Named for Serbian geophysicist and astronomer Milutin Milankovitch, these cycles are the result of Earth’s gravitational interactions with other planets which influence Earth’s trajectory around the sun, including the shape of its elliptical path (eccentricity), as well as the tilt (obliquity) and wobbling (precession) of the planet’s axis.

    Changes to Earth’s orbit affect the planet’s climate, and as Olsen first argued in a 1986 paper in Science, a record of past climates could therefore be used to infer the positions and motions of other planets.
    ...
    Laskar’s earlier computational models also provided evidence that the inner planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars) may behave chaotically. Or in other words, the positions of these four planets could be largely determined by initial conditions, making them almost impossible to predict based solely on the positions and directions seen today.

    These rock records of climate change turn out to be the key to figuring out what the solar system is actually doing,” Olsen says.
    ...
    “One of the cycles was not tied directly to anything known at the time in orbital cycles,” Olsen says.

    “It was about two million years long, and I didn't know what it was.”
    After receiving a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant in the 1990s to dig up and analyze nearly 22,600 feet of continuous cores from seven sites within the Newark Supergroup, Olsen and his colleagues discovered that the mysterious cycle was a long-period orbital cycle caused by the interactions between Mars and Earth. The finding “provides the first geological evidence of the chaotic behavior of the inner planets,” Olsen and Dennis Kent, a professor of geology at Rutgers University and coauthor on the new research, wrote in a 1999 paper published by the Royal Society.
    ...
    By matching traces of the Earth’s magnetic field reversals in the Chinle Formation sample core to those in the Newark core, the researchers were able to infer the exact dates of climatic cycles caused by the gravity of other planets. Their analysis revealed a 405,000-year cycle in celestial mechanics caused by Jupiter and Venus that has existed for 200 million years, exactly as it is today.

    NASA spots signs of 22-MILE-WIDE crater buried beneath Greenland ice sheet in what could be evidence of another ancient impact in the region

    • Researchers say they've found what could be a 22-mile-wide impact crater
    • Bowl-shaped depression found in northwest Greenland, 114miles from Hiawatha
    • Scientists announced 19-mile-wide impact crater under Hiawatha Glacier in Nov
    • The Hiawatha crater was the first crater ever to be found beneath Earth's ice

    By Cheyenne Macdonald For Dailymail.com

    Published: 16:33 EST, 11 February 2019 | Updated: 16:35 EST, 11 February 2019
    ...
    Scientists have discovered what could be a 22-mile-wide impact crater buried deep beneath Greenland’s ice.

    If so, it would be the second such discovery announced in the last few months.

    A NASA glaciologist spotted signs of the possible crater in northwest Greenland just 114 miles from the recently-discovered crater beneath the Hiawatha Glacier while scouring satellite imagery and topographic maps of the area.

    Exactly how and when it formed still remain a mystery, though the researchers suspect it may be more than 80,000 years old.
    ...
    The suspected crater is estimated to be 22.7 miles wide.

    According to the team, it would be the 22nd largest impact crater known on Earth, if it really turns out to be one.

    ‘The only other circular structure that might approach this size would be a collapsed volcanic caldera,’ MacGregor said.

    ‘But the areas of known volcanic activity in Greenland are several hundred miles away. Also, a volcano should have a clear positive magnetic anomaly, and we don’t see that at all.’

    Though the new crater sits just 114 miles from the one announced in November, the researchers say they don’t appear to have formed at the same time.
    ...
    The ice in the area is at least 79,000 years old, the team says.

    If this really is an impact crater, the researchers say it either happened more than 79,000 years ago, or, if it was more recently, all of the ice from the time eroded.

    ‘The ice layers above this second crater are unambiguously older than those above Hiawatha, and the second crater is about twice as eroded,’ MacGregor said.
    ....
    ‘This does not rule out the possibility that the two new Greenland craters were made in a single event, such as the impact of a well separated binary asteroid, but we cannot make a case for it either,’ said William Bottke, a planetary scientist with the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado.

    ‘The existence of a third pair of unrelated craters is modestly surprising but we don’t consider it unlikely,’ MacGregor said.

    ‘On the whole, the evidence we’ve assembled indicates that this new structure is very likely an impact crater, but presently it looks unlikely to be a twin with Hiawatha.’

    This Is the Oldest Age You Can Possibly Live To (According to Science)

    ...
    Human life expectancies have gone up over the years. But, according to new research, our average maximum age ceiling hit a plateau decades ago.

    It’s no secret that humans have gotten really good at living longer. We know to eat right, to exercise, to take our vitamins, and to get our nightly eight hours. (And that doesn’t even account for the striding advancements modern medicine has made.) But no matter how smart way go about our quest for immortality, there’s only so far we can go.

    According to a new study published in Nature—led by John Einmahl of Tilburg University and Laurens de Haan of the Erasmus University Rotterdam—the human “age ceiling” is approximately 114.1 years for men and 115.7 years for women. (The discrepancy between the genders could be explained by the fact that testosterone has been linked to shorter lifespans.)
    ...
    As of this writing, Einmahl and de Haan’s research has yet to be peer-reviewed, but its findings appear to be bolstered by a similar study from last year: Researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine found that the average maximum age is 115.
