The End of Eden

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

In the year 2024, the comet 12P/Pons-Brooks is due to pass near Earth again for the first time in 3,500 years. In 1500 B.C., Earth passed through this comet's tail, and in the decade following, cultures the world over began to exhibit significant aggressive tendencies. Civilisations in India, the Middle East, China, Japan, Europe, and Central America suddenly abandoned their peaceful ways and devoted themselves with uncharacteristic fervour to making war on their neighbours and fighting among themselves. But this was not the only effect that is linked to this celestial event. Sudden outbreaks of monotheism, the worship of a single god, and a new idea at the time, occurred simultaneously in locales spread widely throughout the world. Most of these monotheistic religions represented their god symbolically as a circle with a series of lines extending below, resembling a simple drawing of a comet.In "The End of Eden", Graham Phillips chronicles the sudden shifts in social demeanour and religious philosophy that swept the world in the wake of 12P/Pons-Brooks.He contends that debris in the comet's tail contaminated the atmosphere with a chemical known to cause aggressive behaviour, and that after little more than a decade, worldwide hostility abruptly abated. He, also, explores how the appearance of a celestial body that outshone the moon would have been interpreted as a significant religious event.
