Starting with the flood legends of the North Eurasian peoples and the Deluge traditions of the great civilizations from antiquity, the author explains the world-wide cosmic catastrophe that mankind experienced around 10,000 years ago on the basis of the latest scientific disclosures. In addition to this, the consequences of this event and, finally, the measures that can be taken against a future universal disaster of the same kind are discussed.

Close, but no cigar. 8 May 2001
By W. ANDERSON - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author is far closer than he realizes on some points, but he misses on the key points. This book is mainly a collection of ancient stories and myths relating to the flood of Noah. It is a good source book for finding flood legends from around the world, along with some interesting interpretations about how the ancient stories all point to the same event. The main short coming of the book is its the failure to trust the accuracy of the most reliable of all flood accounts, the bible. The theory put forward by the author is that 10,000 years ago the earth was hit by a number of comet fragments which triggered huge waves and other destructive events that are what is behind many of the flood or cataclysm myths nearly all ancient cultures tell of. The book does not support a global deluge, but does present evidence supporting a recent world wide disaster. The book is interesting in that it is written by someone who doesn't believe in the flood or the bible, and yet feels the evidence overwhelmingly points towards a recent world wide disaster of which there where few survivors. For coming so close, I felt this book deserved two stars despite its short comings.
