Chan Thomas’ book, first published in 1963, is one of possibly hundreds which reference the topic of cataclysm theory. What sets it apart from most, if not all of its peers, is that the CIA at some point classified a work which was already in the public domain, and then released a sanitized version of it in 2013. The original text has been available since publication.
Thomas seems to have sourced much of his information from having knowledge of Project Nanook (1947), which remained classified from 1947 until 1988, as described in World in Peril (1994). Many of the details in Adam and Eve are almost identical to what is to be found in Ken White’s book. This explains why Thomas seldom provides citations for much of his information – Project Nanook remained classified when Adam and Eve Story was published in 1963 – he would have been prosecuted under the Official Secrets Act had he revealed his source. This is probably the reason why the CIA classified The Adam and Eve Story in the first place.
The Next Cataclysm
Like Noah’s, 6,500 years ago…
Like Adam and Eve’s, 11,500 years ago…
This, too, will come to pass…
With a rumble so low as to be inaudible, growing, throbbing, then fuming into a thundering roar, the earthquake starts…. only it’s not like any earthquake in recorded history.
In California the mountains shake like ferns in a breeze; the mighty Pacific rears back and piles up into a mountain of seawater more than two miles high…. then starts its race eastward.
With the force of a thousand armies the wind attacks, ripping, shredding everything in its supersonic bombardment. The unbelievable mountain of Pacific seawater follows the wind eastward, burying Los Angeles and San Francisco as if they were but grains of sand.
Nothing – but nothing – stops the relentless, overwhelming onslaught of wind and ocean.
Across the continent the thousand mile-per-hour wind wreaks its hell, its unholy vengeance, everywhere, mercilessly, unceasingly. Every living thing is ripped into shreds while being blown across the countryside, and earthquakes leave no place untouched. In many places the earth’s molten sub-layer breaks through and spreads a sea of white-hot liquid file to add to the holocaust. Within three hours the fantastic wall of seawater moves across the continent, burying the wind-ravaged land under two miles of seething water coast-to-coast.
In a fraction of a day all vestiges of civilization are gone, and the great cities – Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, New York, Boston – are nothing but legends. Barely a stone is left where millions walked just a few hours before.
A few lucky ones who manage to find shelter from the screaming wind on the lee side of a high mountain peak – such as Mt. Massive – watch the sea of molten fire breaking through the quaking valleys below. The raging waters follow at supersonic speeds, piling higher and higher, steaming over the molten earth-fire, and rising almost to their feet. Only great, high mountains such as this one can withstand the cataclysmic onslaught.
North America is not alone in her death throes. Central America suffers the same cannonade – wind, earth-fire, and inundation. South America finds the Andes not high enough to stop the cataclysmic violence pounded out by nature in her berserk rage. In less than a day, Ecuador, Peru, and western Brazil are shaken madly by the devastating earthquake; the Andes are piled higher and higher by the Pacific s supersonic onslaught as it surges over itself against the mountains. The entire continent is burned by molten earth-fire, buried under cubic miles of catastrophically violent seas, then turned into a frozen hell. Everything freezes. Man, beast, plant, and mud are all rock-hard in less than four hours.
Europe cannot escape the onslaught. The raging Atlantic piles higher and higher on itself, following the screeching wind eastward. The Alps, Pyrenees, Urals, and Scandinavian mountains are shaken, then heaved even higher when the wall of seawater strikes.
Western Africa and the sands of the Sahara vanish in nature’s wrath, under savage attack by wind and ocean. The area bounded by Zaire, South Africa, and Kenya suffers only severe earthquakes and winds – little inundation. Survivors there marvel at the Sun, standing still in the sky for nearly half a day.
Eastern Siberia and the Orient suffer a strange fate indeed – as though a giant subterranean scythe sweeps away the earth’s foundations, accompanied by die wind in its screaming symphony of supersonic loath and destruction. As the Arctic basin leaves its polar home, eastern Siberia, Manchuria, China and Burma are subjected to the same annihilation as South America: wind, earth-fire, inundation, and freezing. Jungle animals are shredded to ribbons by the wind, piled into mountains of flesh and bone, and buried under avalanches of homogenized seawater and mud. Then comes the sudden, seemingly infinite supply of terrible, instantly paralyzing temperature drop of 180 degrees F. Not man, beast, plant, muck, earth, nor water is left unfrozen in the entire eastern Asian continent, most of which remains below sea level.
Antarctica and Greenland, with their ice caps, now rotate around the earth in the Torrid Zone; and the fury of wind and inundation marches on for six days. During the sixth day the oceans start to settle in their new homes, running off the high grounds.
On the seventh day the horrendous rampage is over. The Arctic Ice Age is ended – and a new stone age begins. The oceans – the great homogenizers – have laid down another deep layer of mud over the existing strata in the great plains, as exposed in the Grand Canyon, Painted Desert, Monument Valley, and the Badlands.
The Bay of Bengal basin, just east of India, is now at the North Pole. The Pacific Ocean, just west of Peru, is at the South Pole. Greenland and Antarctica, now rotating equatorially, find their ice caps dissolving madly in the tropical heat. Massive walls of water and ice surge toward the oceans, taking everything – from mountains to plains – in gushing, heaving paths, while creating immense seasonal moraines. In less than twenty-five years the ice caps are gone, and the oceans around the world rise over two hundred feet with the new-found water. The Torrid Zone will be shrouded in a fog for generations from the enormous amounts of moisture poured into the atmosphere by the melting ice caps.
New ice caps begin to form in the new polar areas. Greenland and Antarctica emerge with verdant, tropical foliage. Australia is the new, unexplored continent in the North Temperate Zone, with only a few handfuls of survivors populating its vastness. New York lies at the bottom of the Atlantic, shattered, melted by earth-fire, and covered by unbelievable amounts of mud. Of San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas and Boston, not a trace is left. They all will join the legends of the seven cities of Cibola.
What’s left of Egypt emerges from its Mediterranean inundation new and higher – still the land of the ages. The commonplace of our time becomes the mysterious Baalbek of the new era.
A new era! Yes, the cataclysm has done its work well. The greatest population regulator of all does once more for man what he refuses to do for himself and the planet on which he lives, and drives the pitiful few who survive into a new stone age.
After this cataclysm we join Noah, Adam and Eve, Atlantis, Mu, and Olympus – and Jesus joins Osiris, Ta’aroa, Zeus, and Vishnu.
The Great Floods
Noah? Adam and Eve? Vishnu? Osiris? What do they have in common? They represent eras ages apart and yet, somehow, they all join hands in the next cataclysm, and walk with us.
There are others who walk with us, too: men of science – long forgotten – those who first saw that these tumbles, these cataclysmic catastrophes, or “revolutions” of the earth’s shell have happened before, countless times. J. Andre DeLuc in 1779 and Georges Cuvier in 1812 were the foremost. Dolomieu, the famous mineralogist, joined the consensus, as did Escher and Forel, the Swiss geologists; also J. Andre DeLuc Jr. and Von Buch. They all agreed that the cataclysms were caused by sudden revolutions in the wrong direction by the surface of the earth.
Cuvier, in his Theory of the Earth, first published in 1812, based his conclusions on his unparalleled correlative research in stratigraphy, comparative anatomy, and palaeontology. As a matter of fact, Cuvier was the founder of the science of comparative anatomy, based on his pioneering, self-taught work in that field. At that time he wrote: “Every part of the earth, every hemisphere, every continent, exhibits the same phenomenon. There has, therefore, been a succession of variations in the economy of organic nature… the various catastrophes which have disturbed the strata… have given rise to numerous shiftings of this (continental) basin…. It is of much importance to mark, that these repeated irruptions and retreats of the sea have neither been slow nor gradual; on the contrary, most of the catastrophes which occasioned them have been sudden; and this is especially easy to be proved, with regard to the last of these catastrophes…. I agree, therefore, with MM. DeLuc and Dolomieu, in thinking, that if anything in geology be established, it is, that the surface of our globe has undergone a great and sudden revolution, the date of which ….cannot be…. much earlier than five or six thousand years ago….(also), one preceding revolution at least had put (the continents) under water….perhaps two or three irruptions of the sea.”
“These alternations now appear to me to form the problem in geology that it is of most importance to solve….in order to solve it satisfactorily, it would be necessary to discover the cause of these events…. These ideas have haunted, I may almost say have tormented me, during my researches among fossil bones… researches which embrace but a very small part of those phenomena of the age preceding the last general revolution of the globe, and which are yet intimately connected with all the others….”
Many attempts have been made to answer the charge made to the geological profession by Cuvier to explain these sudden revolutions in the wrong direction.
Among others, Velikovsky tried it through his studies of myths and legends; Hapgood tried it; Hugh Brown attempted, and in the process amassed a tremendous library of geological data.
Every time the cataclysmic concept has risen, the “beast” has been stoned, burned at the stake, beaten to a pulp, and buried with a vengeance; but the corpse won’t stay dead. Each time, it raises the lid of its coffin and says in sepulchral tones: “You will die before I.”
The latest of the challengers is Prof. Frank C. Hibben, who in his book. The Lost Americans, said: ” ..This was no ordinary extinction of a vague geological period which fizzled to an uncertain end. This death was catastrophic and all inclusive….What caused the death of forty million animals…. The “corpus delicti” in this mystery may be found almost anywhere. …Their bones lie bleaching in the sands of Florida and in the gravels of New Jersey. They weather out of the dry terraces of Texas and protrude from the sticky ooze in the tar pits off Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles…. The bodies of the victims are everywhere…. We find literally thousands together… young and old, foal with dam, calf with cow. The muck pits of Alaska are filled with evidence of universal death…. a picture of quick extinction…. Any argument as to the cause…. must apply to North America, Siberia, and Europe as well.
“. . . Mammoth and bison were torn and twisted as though by a cosmic hand in a godly rage.”. . . In many places the Alaskan muck blanket is packed with animal bones and debris in trainload lots. . . mammoth, mastodon . . . bison, horses, wolves, bears, and lions. . . . A fauna population . . . in the middle of some cataclysmic catastrophe . . . was suddenly frozen . . . in a grim charade.”
Fantastic winds; volcanic burning; inundation and burial in muck; preservation by deep-freeze. “Any good solution to a consuming mystery must answer all of the facts,” challenges Hibben.
The challenge wouldn’t leave me alone. Like a hunger, it gnawed at my subconscious. I could hear the deep tones of Cuvier’s challenge, “find the cause of these events,” still reverberating through the sacred halls of science, ghostly, unanswered. I felt Hibben’s challenge later on, prodding: “. . . answer all of the facts.” I decided that this cataclysmic concept, this catastrophic end which seems to visit our planet time after time, needed verification or refutation once and for all.
The first step was to gather all of the known, accepted data from as many “earth” sciences as possible: stratigraphy, archaeology, anthropology, paleontology, radiology, oceanography, seismology, glaciology, and many other fields. Correlation of the data between the sciences gave the answer: although there is enough data in each science to indicate that these cataclysms happen, there was not enough to prove the concept; but between-science correlation showed indeed that the concept was true. Not only did it verify that the events have happened, but disclosed when the last five cataclysms were, and what positions the shell of the Earth has been in for the last 35,000 years. So, after years of research, beginning in 1949, Cuvier’s challenge had an answer: Yes, indeed the cataclysms do happen. And the last one, 6,500 years ago, was Noah’s Flood!
All right. So they happen; what is it that happens each time? The challenge was really two-fold: Find the process – what happens in a cataclysm; and the trigger – what causes a cataclysm to start.
What a chase! And what a dramatic story of the earth’s history we uncovered: Civilizations of 20,000
years ago more advanced than our wildest imagination; prehistoric legends from Greece, Egypt, India, and South America which became history instead of legend; lost continents in the Atlantic and Pacific which became dated realities, with logical reasons for their sudden disappearance.
Yes, Vishnu came alive: a man who lived through a cataclysm 70,000 years before our time – actually ten cataclysms ago! Now he is known as the Hindu god of ten resurrections from the waters. Osiris, too, was rediscovered; he was the Jesus of his time – a man of Egypt, some 15,000 years ago. Noah smiled at us from the pages of the “Epic of Gilgamesh”; he actually was a Sumerian named Utnapishtim, who lived 6,500 years ago. The ark he built is more than legend.
The process of a cataclysm is known now.
Look at the cross-section of the Earth [above]. You’ll see two molten layers – the orange ones. The important one is the thin molten layer about 60 miles thick, which is between 60 and 120 miles down, below the surface of the earth. The thick, deep molten layer, starting 1800 miles down at the bottom of the mantle, and extending 1300 miles deeper, is the outer core.
Now both molten layers are liquid; however, the inner magnetic and electrical structure of the Earth makes these layers act as if they were near solid, or plastic. As long as the magnetic and electrical structure maintains its orderliness, this old earth keeps on rotating on its axis in a normal manner.
The growing ice caps – Antarctica and Greenland – are not centered on the earth’s axis; and, because they rotate around the poles, are trying to swing down to the equator. The only way they could do it would be to pull the whole 60-mile thick shell around with them.
As long as the shallow molten layer stays plastic, the shell won’t shift; but once every few thousand years the magnetic and electrical orderliness inside the Earth is disrupted, and the molten layer is allowed to act like a free liquid, which it was all the time anyway. It then serves as a lubricant for the ice caps to pull the shell of the earth around the inside.
In ¼ to ½ a day the poles move almost to the equator, and all hell lets loose. The atmosphere and oceans don’t shift with the shell – they just keep on rotating West to East – and at the equator that speed is 1000 miles per hour. It has to be, normally, to make one rotation per day. So, while the shell shifts with the poles going toward the equator, the winds and oceans go eastward, blowing across the face of the earth with supersonic speeds, inundating continents with water miles deep.
Now what about the trigger? This turned out to be the most elusive piece of the whole puzzle. We couldn’t rely on some supernatural explanation – like sometime happenings in the heavens of a vague character which actually violated the laws of nature; no, it had to be something natural, a part of nature’s ordinary structure, which disrupts the Earth’s inner electrical and magnetic structure whenever it happens.
We once thought that Sun spots could be the cause, because they do disrupt the earth’s inner electrical and magnetic structure; but we were wrong.
We found out that “nature’s power plant” is a motor-generator system existing in many different magnitudes. It’s a basic structure of the universe. The energy structure of an atom is identical to a rotating planet; to a blue-white star; to a galaxy; to a super-galaxy; to all levels of super-galaxies including a universe and even more. As a neutron which has escaped from its parent atom’s neutral zone will separate into particles, a star – through a sunspot – gives off neutral matter which explodes as it becomes energized; so a galaxy gives birth to an exploding star when a “dead” star escapes from its neutral zone in the center; and as a “dead” galaxy explodes when it escapes from the central neutral zone of its parent super-galaxy. A planet, therefore, must act the same at its energy level.
So, apparently once every few thousand years neutral matter escapes from the 860-mile-radius inner
core into the 1300-mile thick molten outer core, and there is a literal atomic explosion inside the Earth. The explosion in the high energy layer of the outer core disrupts completely the electrical and magnetic structure in both the molten outer core and the outer 60-mile thick molten layer. Finally the ice caps are allowed to pull the shell of the earth around the interior, with the shallow molten layer lubricating the shift all the way. You can see, then, that ice ages are not a matter of advancing and retreating ice; it’s simply that different areas of the Earth are in polar regions at different times, for different durations of time, with the changes between positions taking place in a fraction of a day. The story around the world gives a silent testimony:

The overwhelming evidence, when put in order, gives a dramatic picture of which areas have been at the North Pole, when they moved to the pole, and how long they were there:

Yes, Noah, Adam and Eve, Osiris, Ta’aroa, Zeus, and Vishnu have much deeper meanings now; and, as
they join hands and walk with us, we hear Adam and Eve saying: “Listen – for now we can truly share our story with you!”
Did William Shatner drop a little truth bomb in this recent interview?
