One of the more unsettling aspects of the Ginenthal et al historical revisionism is the possibility that artefacts uncovered by archaeology in the Rhine Valley, for example, may not date to 5000 years BP but might equally be assigned to a post Roman era.
Because of the entrenched belief of biological and geological evolution generally categorised as ‘Uniformitarianism’ and that humanity evolved, over time, from primitive forms to its present form today.
Hence all dating techniques are calibrated on artefacts categorised by the evolutionary presumption, that stone tools were the product of primitive hunters.
We do not conclude that stone implements might have been created by post-catastrophe civilised humans suddenly left to fend for themselves when all the trappings of civilisation were destroyed.
Globally the earth is dotted with petroglyphs that have recently been interpreted as facsimiles of electric plasma sky phenomena and provisionally dated to 10,000 years BP.
I wonder if these petroglyphs might be younger and the record left by the survivors of a previous global catastrophe?
The obstacle is the belief of creation and its corollary Darwinian evolution; Darwinian evolution is essentially creationism removed to the past, and is as problematical as the recent one that remains in vogue with many of the devout.
This seems to be a new direction of research presenting itself.
