THE SURVIVORS: THE OJIBWA TRIBE

THE SURVIVORS: THE OJIBWA TRIBE 

 Long-Tailed-Heavenly-Climbing-Star


Once long, long ago, Chumantou, the Great Spirit, visited the Ojibwa tribe, who lived near the edge of the frozen lands. Chimantou warned them that a dangerous star was about to fall and urged them to hurry to the bogs to cover their bodies with mud. Most people did not recognize the Great Spirit, however, and made fun of Chimantou. “Do not listen. The man is just a crazy person,” they said laughing.” Cover ourselves with mud! Ha! They said as they went on their way and paid no more attention to the Great Spirit. Only a few hurried to the bog as Chumantou suggested.

Before long, when the sun was high, the day suddenly grew brighter. The people all looked up in panic and someone shouted, “look! A second sun is in the sky!” The new star was growing larger, brighter, and hotter as it hurtled towards them. It became so bright that they had to shield their eyes.

The people who had not covered themselves with mud ran for shelter in terror, bit it was too late. The star flew down to Earth and blanketed the world with its long, flowing and glowing tail. Tall trees burst into flame like giant torches, lake and river began to boil and even the rocks glowed and shattered in the heat, as terrible fire swallowed the entire world.

Then suddenly, when the heat was the greatest and the people in the bog thought even they would surely die, the star climbed back up and moved away from Earth.

After the world had cooled down, the mud-covered people cautiously came out of the bog to look around. Stunned, they saw that the world had changed completely. In all directions, all that remained were smoldering blackened trees and scorched grasslands. The people who had not listened to Chimantou had perished among with the great animals. Only their skeletons remained.

The people were afraid and did not know what to do until Chimantou came to them and said, “Put aside your fear. The star is gone for now. Go out and multiply, for this new world is yours. But if I come to warn you another time, do not forget to listen, because Long-Tailed-Heavenly-Climbing –Star will surely comeback again to destroy the world.

NEW SCIENCE / EARTH CHANGES"The Cycle of Cosmic Catastrophes tells a fascinating, remarkable, and scientifically convincing story that will change how we look at our world. The important conclusion that catastrophes like this could happen again at any time should inspire a united global effort to confront this serious danger to Earth." --Professor Anders Nilsson, Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory, Stanford University, and the Department of Physics, Stockholm University, Sweden"Reads like a mystery novel while presenting hard evidence for a cosmic catastrophe 13,000 years ago that rendered mammoths and many other large North American animals extinct. This is serious research presented in an easy-to-read style." --Bob Kobres, Carolina Bay Archivist, University of Georgia LibrariesThere are a number of puzzling mysteries in the history of the earth that have yet to be satisfactorily explained by mainstream science: the extinction of the mammoths and saber-toothed tigers, the vanishing of ancient Indian tribes, the formation of the mysterious Carolina Bays, the wild temperature swings at the end of the Ice Age, and the cause of huge underwater landslides that sent massive tsunamis racing across the oceans millennia ago. Eyewitness accounts of these events are chronicled in rich oral traditions handed down through generations of native peoples. The authors' recent scientific discoveries link all these events to a single cause.In The Cycle of Cosmic Catastrophes Richard Firestone, Allen West, and Simon Warwick-Smith present new scientific evidence about a series of prehistoric cosmic events at the end of the Ice Age. Their findings validate the ubiquitous legends and myths of floods, fires, and weather extremes passed down by our ancestors and show how these legendary events relate to each other. Their findings also support the idea that we are entering a thousand-year cycle of increasing danger and possibly a new cycle of extinctions.RICHARD FIRESTONE holds a Ph.D. in nuclear chemistry and has been part of the Isotopes Project at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory since 1979. ALLEN WEST, Ph.D., was the owner and CEO of an international scientific consulting company. SIMON WARWICK-SMITH was a field exploration geologist and mining geologist in Australia and now heads Warwick Associates, a book consulting and publicity firm. Richard Firestone and Simon Warwick-Smith live in California and Allen West lives in Arizona.
