Bob Kobres is my original guru on the subject of
Carolina Bays and cosmic catastrophism in myth. Here is Bob's wonderful Nickle Pickle
Series. Here is Bob's paper on
Comets and the Bronze Age
(Start with Part B if you are browsing quickly).
Pickle Part A: Though a nickel will not buy much today the element
nickel is invaluable to our contemporary way of life. Without access to this
nonferrous metal, much of what we take for granted would not be practical or
in many cases possible. Automobiles would be fragile--hitting a pothole
would, as in...
Pickle Part B: There is though, another agent which could destroy
civilization and do great harm to the environment, a large consignment of

pieced together with total disregard for the effects impact phenomena had on

because slow moving glaciers better explained the presence of displaced
boulders. Catastrophists had surmised that these large rocks were washed to
where they were found...

Carolina Bays, the strongest physical evidence that seems to link the
mega-fauna extinction with an extraterrestrial event is in the form of an
artifact known as the Lenape Stone.
