City Clobbering Asteroid 3,600 Years Ago + Multiple Asteroids 12,800 Years Ago Causing Younger Dryas

City Clobbering Asteroid 3,600 Years Ago + Multiple Asteroids 12,800 Years Ago Causing Younger Dryas // Oct 4, 2021

In the Middle-East there was a city called Tall el-Hammam. This bustling city with over 8,000 people was near the Dead Sea in Jorden. One day it was thriving, and the next day it was gone. The city was totally destroyed in a flash of light, with fire and a massive explosion. An unseen icy space rock moving 38,000 mph (61,000 mph) exploded in a massive fireball 2.5 miles (4 km) above the ground, with the power of 1000 Hiroshima bombs. Air temperature was instantly over 2000 C (3600 F) causing clothing, wood, and human bodies to burst into flames.

Swords, spears, mud bricks and pottery melted, while the entire city was engulfed in flames. A few seconds later, a massive shockwave hit the city, moving at 740 mph (1,200 mph), a speed faster than the strongest tornado ever. These deadly winds demolished every building in the city, and sheared off the top 40 feet (12 meters) of the central four story palace, blowing debris into the next valley. None of the 8,000 people or untold numbers of animals survived; the bodies were torn up, incinerated, and bones were pulverized into tiny pieces. One minute later, the winds and shock waves travelled 14 miles (22 km) to the west, hitting the biblical city of Jericho, tumbling the walls down and burning the city to the ground. For the next 600 years there was no agriculture in the region, since salt spread by the explosion contaminated the soils, and it took that long for the land to become arable again.

How do we know all this happened?

Over the last 15 years research by hundreds of people including archeologists, geologists, geochemists, geomorphology states, mineralogist, paleobotanists, sedimentologists, cosmic-impact experts, and medical doctors has given us this understanding. Next video, I discuss in detail the peer reviewed scientific paper published mere weeks ago on this research.

This city destruction by a rock from space was not the first recorded in history. In Syria 12,800 years ago a city was destroyed with melting temperatures above 2,200 C (I briefly discuss this paper as well). In that case, there was not just one impact, but numerous impacts many places in the Northern Hemisphere, and even at one place in the Southern Hemisphere (perhaps unrelated)? The cause is thought to have been impacts from many large chunks of a much larger fracturing comet or much larger disintegrating asteroid. The widespread destruction around the globe likely changed the global climate (timing works out perfectly) and triggered a massive cooling period called the Younger Dryas.

In this video I discuss important details from the peer reviewed scientific papers on these global climate changing asteroid impacts.

I also discuss the evidence for multiple impact strikes on Earth at locations around the northern hemisphere 12,800 years ago, including one destroying a city in Syria. These impacts are believed to be the cause of the global climate change known as “The Younger Dryas” which was a cooling that occurred between 12,800 years ago to 11,600 years ago.
