As mentioned in the start of this essay there are many clues of a large near past asteroid impact literally staring us in the face. But for the most part they are clues that are camouflaged within mythology and early religion. Visual clues that have their origin in rock art imagery. When we view such impact clues we are looking back over a long period of time at them, clues that have been embellished and overlayed with mythological invention. Over countless retelling of those myths new personas and angles to the impact have been added on. Different emphasis and context has crept into disguising those impact clues, some myth became so distorted that it holds no impact clues and is merely invention, fantasy built on fantasy. As outlined when the ancients projected differentiated god personas onto various aspects of the impact, eruption event they became emotionally and psychologically ensnared by such godly personas and we are still to this day in the grip of such mythological, religious inventions. We have to put such metaphysical invention aside and perceive the background impact elements upon which it lies. The primeval waters, oceans, the serpent, snake gods, the bull gods, the Tree of Life, the water gods, the sun-fireball gods, the phallus gods, the storm, cyclonic weather gods, and a tale of a great overwhelming flood, all imagery elements that derive from real ocean asteroid impact description. That such an impact hypothesis would provide a bridge between the polarized viewpoints of religion and science. Science would realise our myth, religions have been cloaking but also signposting a huge scientific truth and religions conversely would come to realise that their formation was due to a rare cosmic impact event. That while we learn more about how much space debris is out there and the potential for possible further impacts is we are still ‘riding the effects’, as it were, from a large impact event having taken place in our near historical past. A large impact that incredibly, we have been blind to.
