any of us take lightly, any more than anyone in any given field would. We may, at times, be overly defensive of our field simply due torepparttar negatism associated with it. Somewhere alongrepparttar 143117 way we got grouped with voodoo, witches and worse! I'd love to take this opportunity to state that a great many of us are actually Christians and would love to distance ourselves fromrepparttar 143118 other notions asap. There isn't any hocus pocus involved -repparttar 143119 mind is at work while we sleep, andrepparttar 143120 details of its work can provide us with golden insights into our life. It's all about finding out what our mind is telling us and using that information to enrich our lives andrepparttar 143121 lives of others. It's as simple as that.

The passion that drives most dreamologists isn't justrepparttar 143122 fascination orrepparttar 143123 fun...although each are undeniable. The real goal and motivation of any good dreamologist isrepparttar 143124 thought that by looking closely atrepparttar 143125 dreamer's dream we can, hopefully, helprepparttar 143126 dreamer. If their dream is somehow trying to convey an important message to him/her, we want very much for them to get it!

At Dream Prophesy.com, our #1 motivation from day #1 has been YOU - helping you to take your dreams and use them to getrepparttar 143127 most out of life. That's what we were here for yesterday, what we're here for today, and what we'll be here for tomorrow.

Dream Prophesy.com and the Dream Prophesy Guide (Blog) are dedicated to the utterly fascinating world of dreams. We love to analyze and re-analyze dreams, looking underneath their surface, scrutinizing every minute detail and symbolism (that's really where the good stuff is, you know!).

Broecker and his colleagues acceptedrepparttar presence of these much lower dates and suggested thatrepparttar 142760 whole matter was complicated byrepparttar 142761 fact that there had been an estimated 200-year resurgence of glacial conditions, known asrepparttar 142762 Valders re-advance, aroundrepparttar 142763 mid-ninth millenium BC. They therefore acknowledged that their own findings might in fact relate torepparttar 142764 recession ofrepparttar 142765 ice fields after this time, bringingrepparttar 142766 dates of their suggested 'major fluctuation in climate' andrepparttar 142767 'sharp change in oceanic conditions' down to well below c. 9000 BC. (13)


Further evidence that dramatic changes accompaniedrepparttar 142768 transition from glacial to post-glacial ages came fromrepparttar 142769 work of Herbert E. Wright Jnr, ofrepparttar 142770 School of Earth Sciences atrepparttar 142771 University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, (14) and J Gordon Ogden III ofrepparttar 142772 Department of Botany and Bacteriology atrepparttar 142773 Ohio Wesleyan University, Delaware. (15) Both examinedrepparttar 142774 pollen spectra range from sediment cores taken from various lake sites inrepparttar 142775 Great Lakes area and found they provided clear evidence of an abrupt shift in flora atrepparttar 142776 end of glaciation. The spruce forests that had thrived inrepparttar 142777 cold harsh climate for many thousands of years were supplanted swiftly, first by pine and then by mixed hardwood forests, such as birch and oak. Deciduous trees, as we know, only thrive in a warmer climate.

The significance of these findings isrepparttar 142778 acceleration at which this transition took place. In an article forrepparttar 142779 journal 'Quaternary Paleoecology' in 1967, Ogden pointed out that some pollen spectra samples showed a 50 per cent replacement from spruce to pine occurring in just 10 centimetres of sediment. (16) In one sample taken from a site named Glacial Lake Aitken in Minnesota,repparttar 142780 transition from 55 per cent to 18 per cent spruce pollen occurred in only 7.6 centimetres of sediment, re- presenting a deposition corresponding to just 170 years. (17) The problem here is that conventional geologists and paleoecologists consider thatrepparttar 142781 transition from glacial to post-glacial ages occurred over several 'thousand' years, not just a few hundred {The time it takes for one or two trees to live and die.} years.

These findings so baffled Ogden that he was led to comment: 'The only mechanism sufficient to produce a change ofrepparttar 142782 kind described here would therefore appear to be a rapid and dramatic change in temperature and/or precipitation approximately 10,000 years ago.’ (18)

What kind of climatic 'event' might have been responsible for this 'rapid and dramatic change in temperature’ {Could this relate torepparttar 142783 buttercups found frozen and undigested in Mammoth mouths ofrepparttar 142784 Arctic?} inrepparttar 142785 American Midwest, sometime around c. 8000 BC? Had it been a consequence ofrepparttar 142786 proposed cometary impact that devastatedrepparttar 142787 western hemisphere during this same epoch?

The knowledge that some 65 million years agorepparttar 142788 Cretaceous period had been abruptly brought to a close by just such an impact has softenedrepparttar 142789 most stubborn of minds concerning such a possibility. Broecker himself, in an article written for 'Scientific American' in 1983, now accepted that asteroid or comet impacts might be responsible forrepparttar 142790 instigation and termination of glacial ages. (19)

This is indeed what Emilio Spedicato has suggested asrepparttar 142791 mechanism behindrepparttar 142792 revolution in climate and ocean temperature experienced during this period…” (20)

We will return to implications related to this andrepparttar 142793 work of Mr. Collins throughout this encyclopedia as we develop real history from actual facts rather thanrepparttar 142794 Bible Narrative. It should be evident that these climate changes had significant impacts on society and created a loss of culture and technology in certain areas ofrepparttar 142795 world. There were probably people who took advantage of these spiritual and other perceptions that resulted as well.
