I was reading this post on KD blog Polar Freezers and the Global Warming and came to this part:

KD opinion: I think the Great Biblical Flood happened fairly recently, i.e. 300-500 years ago. I think so, because of the three undeniable facts which are being grossly misrepresented by the so-called historians.

  • Population Growth Chart
  • Map Transformations
  • Ruin Artists
I wondered, what would I add to the list above and instantly a thought came - the global flood would strip away the black topsoil and carried it away, replacing it with deposits of clay. And this is exactly what I am observing around me in Virginia. I live on a side of a hill in Appalachian mountains area called Piedmont, that is about 1000 feet above the sea level. The bottom of the valley below is at about 500 feet above the sea level. In the past this area was all wooded without any permanent habitations. The trees would fall and be slowly decomposed, replaced by the new generation of trees. This process would be repeated every 50 to 100 years. When a large tree decomposes it creates many tons of soil. But all I can see on my property today is about 10-15 inches tops, before I hit the red clay... 10-15 inches of soil is a product of 1000 years or less.

Everybody heard of the rich topsoils of Ukraine called chernozem (black earth). They happened to stretch down to 30 feet and more thick, I heard. Would it mean that area of the Earth, where Ukraine was established, had been spared by the Great Flood?

How thick is the black topsoil where you live?

I read a book titled Ragnarok: The Age of Fire and Gravel by Ignatius Donnelly in which he makes some pretty compelling arguments that a celestial event (which he describes as a comet) changed the surface of the earth relatively recently. I don't recall when exactly but considering the tomfoolery regarding the age of our earth and scope of our history I've begun taking all dates with a grain of salt.

You should give it a glance.

Cliffnotes are as follows.

In mythology and oral tradition there is an agreement that there was a (or series of) worldwide disaster(s) which changed the topographical makeup of our realm. This is tangibly found in what he (and others) refer to as "the drift".

Here's the into:

"READER,--Let us reason together:--
What do we dwell on? The earth. What part of the earth? The latest formations, of course. We live upon the top of a mighty series of stratified rocks, laid down in the water of ancient seas and lakes, during incalculable ages, said, by geologists, to be from ten to twenty miles in thickness.
Think of that! Rock piled over rock, from the primeval granite upward, to a height four times greater than our highest mountains, and every rock stratified like the leaves of a book; and every leaf containing the records of an intensely interesting history, illustrated with engravings, in the shape of fossils, of all forms of life, from the primordial cell up to the bones of man and his implements.
But it is not with the pages of this sublime volume we have to deal in this book. It is with a vastly different but equally wonderful formation.
Upon the top of the last of this series of stratified rocks we find THE DRIFT.
What is it?
Go out with me where yonder men are digging a well. Let us observe the material they are casting out.
First they penetrate through a few inches or a foot or two of surface soil; then they enter a vast deposit of sand, gravel, and clay. It may be fifty, one hundred, five hundred, eight hundred feet, before they reach the stratified rocks on which this drift rests. It covers whole continents. It is our earth. It makes the basis of our soils; our railroads cut their way through it; our carriages drive over it; our cities are built upon it; our crops are derived from it; the water we drink percolates through it; on it we live, love, marry, raise children, think, dream, and die; and in the bosom of it we will be buried."

I am tempted to copy and paste more from the book but you should just go check it out.

He's an interesting character, this Donnelly, and I think he deserves our attention.
His other book, "Atlantis: The Antediluvian Civilization" was worth the read as well.

Anyway, hope that leads you to some insights.

And isn't it strange that, yet, the soil in Ukraine is low in iodine and selenium?

Interesting!

In some parts of the world, windblown dust and silt blanket the land. This layer of fine, mineral-rich material is called loess.

Loess is mostly created by wind, but can also be formed by glaciers. When glaciers grind rocks to a fine powder, loess can form. Streams carry the powder to the end of the glacier. This sediment becomes loess.

Loess ranges in thickness from a few centimeters to more than 91 meters (300 feet). Unlike other soils, loess is pale and loosely packed. It crumbles easily; in fact, the word “loess” comes from the German word for “loose.” Loess is soft enough to carve, but strong enough to stand as sturdy walls. In parts of China, residents build cave-like dwellings in thick loess cliffs.

Extensive loess deposits are found in northern China, the Great Plains of North America, central Europe, and parts of Russia and Kazakhstan. The thickest loess deposits are near the Missouri River in the U.S. state of Iowa and along the Yellow River in China.

The loess description doesn't fit the bill of what is known as Ukraine's chernozem. It is a black humus type soil - likely made from decomposed organic materials. I would imagine a scenario, where the water run offs from glaciers or global floods stripped that black soil all over the continent and deposited it on the bottoms of lakes in low-laying areas. After the water dries out, and vegetation starts growing, one would not have know, that the soil cam from elsewhere. On the other hand, before drying, such water reservoirs would become swamps first. And swamps are known factories of peat. The peat deposits can also be very thick...

ukraine is periglacial loess... and black is the mysterious burning that happened for thousands of years.

In Europe, a common paradigm is that chernozem soils developed in the Holocene under grassland steppes, with their formation largely determined by three factors, parent material, climate and faunal mixing. For European chernozems, however, pollen records show that steppes were rare. Here, using high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, electron energy loss spectroscopy, micro Raman spectroscopy and radiocarbon dating, we characterized the nanomorphology and chemical structure of soil organic carbon (SOC) from European chernozems. We identified submicron remnants of burned biomass (15–45 percent of SOC), coexisting as amorphous charblack carbon (BC) derived from pyrolized cellulose or soot-BC. The BC was several millenia in age (1160–5040 carbon-14 years) and up to 3990 radiocarbon years older than bulk SOC, indicating significant residence times for BC in soils.
In black Australian grassland soils, under aboriginal fire management for thousands of years, up to 30% of the soil organic carbon (SOC) was present as BC, whereas adjacent forested soils that were not subjected to regular aboriginal burning were gray and contained little BC.....

I'm working on something at the moment that hints at the Biblical flood being some time during (what we know as) the 15th Century
There are excellent researchers 'out there' who demonstrate that the character we know as Christopher Columbus didn't 'discover' America at all, but went there in order to see what was left over after the flood. I'll make a post on here when I'm finished.

I have come to the conclusion that in the vicinity of 1486-1492 was the "Great Flood" which arrived from The Deep in the sky accompanied by clay, sand, rocks, burning oils and gases. The topography of the earth changed quite a bit with mountain ranges increased in height, oceans raised mightily covering for instance the shelf of the eastern coast of America and the Doggerlands perhaps. The destruction was uneven around the world and the Old World power centers were affected the most leaving a power vacuum that the Western Europeans filled.

I invite you to read Jeremiah 4:23-28. Verse 23 is a direct correlation to Gen 1:2 in which the word 'was' has been deliberately mis-translated, and should be 'became / came to pass'. I have said for years that the NT pre-dates the OT, and was stunned when I found out that Anatoly Fomenko also asserts this. The 'creation' story in Genesis 1, is a RE-creation. This realm (real-m) was hijacked !

Yes Donnelley is an interesting read, and he gets a lot of things right for the time he is writing in however, he says that a comet was the cause of the drift. Velikovsky says that Venus as a comet was a cause of the periodic destructions of civilizations along with Mars. Anything that can not be explained by current observations of a destructive nature of phenomena a cometary cause is assumed without proof. Our minders do not want any other causation knowledge to be cogitated upon.

The key phrases are : For I am bringing disaster from the north,
Look! He advances like the clouds,
his chariots come like a whirlwind,
This is not a cometary phenomenonon!

No, it's more akin to some kind of plasma event, IMHO
