Graham Hancock Puzzles on Megafaunal Remains Frozen in Muck of Alaska Yet Rightly Acknowledges Catastrophism


Famous alternative archaeologist Graham Hancock, prone to New Age interpretations of history, though acknowledges the evidence of the catastrophic end of the Ice Age in his most recent blogpost, citing the work of Froelich Rainey and Frank C. Hibben who reported in an edition of American Antiquity in 1940 that the deep sluice cuts for gold mining, miles long and up to a hundred-forty feet deep, revealed the often torn up remains of elephants, big cats, horses, deer, wolves, bears, moose, and elk, engulfed in the floodwater and mud, the rapidly ended Ice Age, because the skies had cleared, the ocean having cooled to about today’s temperatures within a thousand years after Noah’s Flood.
