I have believed from a young age that our civilizations go back further than we know. This does not mean there is a god or no god, I just think there is a lot of history we are unaware of due to time and the great disasters that separate us.
So today, I want to tell you a fictional story about an asteroid hitting the earth in what is now Greenland, destroying civilizations, and most of the people in them.
During this time, some people prepared for disasters due to stories passed down over the ages. Tales of a great catastrophe that destroyed the world in the distant past. Accounts most people of their time believed to be myths; still, they accepted them as fact and prepared underground bunkers and stocked them with everything they would need to survive, including the working knowledge of their civilization.
One night a bright light appeared in the sky, and they realized the cycle was about to repeat itself, so they made their way underground. Others became aware of the bright object too, but it was too late; an asteroid hit, killing most life on earth.
Those who survived above ground were lucky enough to have lived in survivable zones. Each day they struggled between life and death, generation after generation, losing knowledge until they only had the necessary skills to survive.
Underground they struggled as well but managed to pass down their knowledge to the next generations.
Thousands of years later, the underground children began to rebuild their world with the gift given to them by their parents.
The people above ground were much less successful.
Years later, seven leaders from the prepared nation set out on boats to spread their knowledge. Teaching others how to build and grow food.
Over time, stories were told about “The Seven” until eventually, they were said to be supernatural. And many rituals formed around them.
Thousands of years later, these stories were said to be myths by the rulers of nations. Today we can read their accounts and can see with our own eyes the impact crater left by the asteroid.
Luckily for humanity, some people today prepare for disasters due to stories passed down over the ages. Tales of a great catastrophe that destroyed the world in the distant past. Accounts most people of our time believe to be myths; still, they accept them as fact and prepare underground bunkers and stock them with everything they will need to survive, including the working knowledge of our civilization.
If they survive, our story continues; if not, it’s…
