The Carolina Bays Comet



The presence of around 500,000 elliptical craters, ranging from a few hundred metres to
11 kilometres in size, across the entire eastern seaboard of the United States, from New
Jersey down to Miami, is perhaps the greatest clue. Modern theories are that these so-
called Carolina Bays (after the states in which they were first noted during aerial surveys
in the 1920s) were caused by a comet which entered the earth's atmosphere from the
north-west over Alaska and disintegrated into millions of pieces that detonated above the
ground, very much in the manner of the small comet which caused the Tunguska event in
Siberia in June 1908.

The effects of the catastrophe, some time around the end of the last Ice Age, were ex-
treme. Not only would it have caused a wall of fire and wind, which would have laid flat
large areas of Tundra forest and decimated flora and fauna, but the resulting dust clouds
would have created a 'nuclear winter' which seems to have resulted in a temporary re-ad-
vance of the ice fields that had covered much of North America, Europe and Asia for the
previous 40,000 years. Moreover, hundreds and thousands of fragments of the comet fall-
ing in the western Atlantic basin would have produced tsunami waves of immense proport-
ions which would have temporarily drowned both the eastern seaboard of the United
States and the islands of the Bahamas and Caribbean, wiping out entire populations (a few
must have got away to tell the tale, as it told in the creation myths of the indigenous
peoples of both Central and North America, and also those of the Caribbean).
