The writings of Ignatious Donnelly (1831-1901) are still relevant and his thinking still original. Lawyer, congressman from Minnesota, entrepreneur, music and art lover - he may have been the only Congressman at the time to use all his spare hours in Washington to explore the Library of Congress. He was a prodigious, voracious and consummate scholar. As a writer, he became an instant success with *Atlantis: The Antediluvian World*. This book was not, despite its title, some pseudo mystical bit of fluff. He had discovered physical evidence for the existence of the Golden Age (plants we now call tropical flourished within the present Arctic Circle for instance) as well as physical evidence for prehistoric cataclysm. He theorized that the earth's great deposits of sand, gravel and clay were not the result of glacial movements but were produced by the debris of a comet passing close to or striking the earth. The Golden Age as well as the Great Cataclysm (known in Scandinavia as Ragnarok) was remembered in myth and legend all over the world.
Donnelly uncovered evidence that the drift was sudden, the poles were not as they are now ("some terrible shock displaced them") and heat meeting cold caused a thick world-wide cloud cover (which caused the subsequent ice age). Modern science corroborates this - the mammoths and all flora and fauna perished suddenly. The sea boiled in great fjords, rocks melted, and clay and gravel rained down from the sky. A recent PBS documentary claimed it was either due to a comet or a volcano.
Donnelly theorized that it was a comet. He devotes a whole chapter to comets and their nature, particularly the Biela comet as it related to the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.
