Drought, Religion and Politics




The Drought That Changed World History

Posted by Prithviraj on February 28, 2010 Disinformation      


The period of 2200 BC to 1800 BC was quite eventful, the significance of which has not yet been fully recognized by us. A lot of events were taking place across civilizations, events that would shape the destiny of mankind for millennia to come, especially so on the religious front.

Jewish tribes, led by Abraham, were continuously displaced from their homeland, which then led them to go on a prolonged and arduous search for the promised land, a land supposedly promised by God. Even though Bible says that God commanded Abraham to move out to promised land, there must be some other non-mythological reason on why those tribes got displaced in the first place. Abraham is normally dated to 2200 to 1800 BC by historians.

We by now know very well that the crucified savior phenomenon did not start with Jesus, but existed much before him. Large number of crucified saviors across the world have been identified by researchers, saviors who supposedly lived much before Jesus. When did this phenomenon start at all? Well, the earliest crucified saviors have been dated to this period of 2200-1800 BC! – Adonis to 2000 BC, Thulis to 1700 BC, Horus to 1550 BC and so on.

Even though Buddha is dated to 500 BC by present day historians, Indian tradition claims that he lived around 1800 BC; and Indian claims have a ring of truth in them as the findings of my article “Buddha’s date – The need to take a fresh look at World History,” published earlier on Disinfo, show. What led people living at that point of time to suddenly abandon theism and the thoughts of God in favor of the atheistic thoughts of Buddhism?

The five states of India – Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra, and Tamilnadu – are called Pancha Dravidas, or five Dravidian states. Even though the languages of the states of Gujarat and Maharashtra are not classified as Dravidian languages, they, nevertheless, are classified as part of Pancha Dravidas.  What is the reason for this? The explanation given is that some external invaders called Aryans invaded India around 1800 BC and later formed the Vedic religion in India. The Dravidians, supposedly the adherents of the religion of Saivism, who were living in Gujarat at that time, got pushed by this invasion towards south of India. They traveled through these five states towards Tamilnadu, which is the reason why these five states are called Pancha Dravidas. Both the Aryan invasion as well as Dravidian migration are dated to 1800 BC!

What is it so special about this period of 2200 to 1800 BC? What was taking place around the world at that time?

Geologists now aver that there was a mighty drought of three centuries around the time of 2200 BC, which severely affected civilizations across India, West Asia, and North Africa. The following is a Wikipedia extract about this event:
“A phase of intense aridity in ≈4.2 ka BP (4200 years Before Present)  is well recorded across North Africa, the Middle East, the Red Sea, the Arabian peninsula, the Indian subcontinent, and even mid-continental North America. Glaciers throughout the mountain ranges of western Canada advanced at about this time.”

Michael Staubwasser of Hannover University and Harvey Weiss of Yale University, who made a study of the correlation between the climatic changes and the cultural evolution of West Asia, have the following to add :
“the event begins at 4200 cal yr BP (4200 years Before Present) and lasts about 300 yr. In records from the eastern Mediterranean region and West Asia, a severe drought is observed almost everywhere. A cultural response to the 4.2 ka climate event may also be seen within the Harappan civilization centered around the Indus valley into the Makran (West Pakistan) and Northwest India. A transition from an urbanized (mature or urban Harappan) to a rural (post-urban) society is well documented beginning at approximately 3950 cal yr BP (Possehl, 1997a). At the end of the third millennium and the beginning of the second millennium BC, the Great Bath and Granary at Mohenjo-Daro were abandoned, settlement in Sindh, the Indus-Sarasvati valley and the Baluchi highlands collapsed and shifted east to the headwaters of the Sarasvati and south to the Saurashtra Peninsula”

When most of our history was written, historians were not aware of this drought. World history was written when historians were not aware of the occurrence of this drought. Now that the drought has been discovered, world history needs to be rewritten.

There was a massive amount of migration all across the world at that point of time. People migrated hundreds or even thousands of miles to wherever they thought they could find water. Apart from the mythological reason of being commanded by God, the non-mythological reason why Abraham and his people went out in search of the promised land was because of the drought – they were displaced from their homeland. The reason why the Christ savior figures started appearing all over the world from that period was because the original set of Christ worshippers migrated away from their homeland at this time. The crucified legends of this group went along with these migrators to distant corners of the globe, in different forms, shapes, and variations, leading to a large number of crucifed savior figures all over the world.

The reason why people converted in large numbers to the atheistic cult of Buddhism at that point of time was because their prayers to the almighty to provide them relief and succor against the drought went unanswered for years, decades, and centuries. Even the staunchest of the faithful found it difficult to believe in any God who could answer their prayers. There was a revolt against theism, which led to the birth of atheistic cults.

The reason why Dravidians migrated toward south India at that time was not because of any external invasion, but because of drought. No Aryans ever migrated to or invaded India. Vedic religion and Vaishnavism are indigenous to India. Migration did take place to India by these people; but the migration took place thousands of years before the drought time of 2200 BC. The reason why Buddha is strongly considered as an incarnation of Vishnu even today by Indians is because many Indians at that time were Vaishnavites, the worshippers of Vishnu. When they converted to Buddhism, most of them did so by simply considering Buddha as an incarnation of Vishnu.

A lot of our valuable and precious history has been lost in the dungeons of time. That history can be ferreted out not by looking at archaeological remains and fossils, but by peaking into our religious scriptures. All of our history, for the last 19000 years, has been well preserved by our religious scriptures and practices – we only need to give them the due respect for the information they contain.

    1. The translation is kinda spotty. I think he meant there was no Aryan Invasion/Migration during That time period.

    2. I believe you are correct but in either case there is logic to his theory. Why would people leave a territory accept for greener pastures and an easier life or at the extreme, for survival. The question is what would happen today? Would technology outpace the changes? To some level it could but what caught my attention is that the droughts seem more likely to be caused by global cooling as more and more water get locked into glaciers and the poles.

  4. Both could be true. There could have been continuous migrations with drought being one of the reasons.

    1. Both probably Are true.

      It always amazes me the extent to which "historians" try to turn previous people into "trees, fixed by roots into one place."

      Knowing what we know of human nature, it seems absurd to think that there weren't always individuals, and groups "on the go."

      Some, "by choice," and, some, maybe not so much so. :)

      I know I had some ancestors that did a bit of both.

  6. I just read something, today, about a group of young, Canadian Indians from the Athabasca region attending a "native American" get-together down in N. Mexico, I think it was, and being amazed to find out that they could converse with the Navaho in their native tongue.

      A strain from Polynesia, I think it is.

    2. Yup, there is a type of pottery and tools traced back to Polynesia.

      Floated over on the currents.

      Also some language indicators and even bits of myth, I think, if I remember correctly.

      Another less supported idea is they came somehow over going by Antarctica.

      I'm now firmly in the camp that the Solutreans were the first folks here.

  9. To see the scale of this issue, consider that there are only two federally recognized bands of the Cherokee, the Western Band in Oklahoma, descendents of those who were forced onto the Trail of Tears and eventually arrived where the federal government wanted them to be, and the Eastern Band in North Carolina, descendents of those who came back to their original lands after a rich white American bought it for them and gave it back. But there were many people who had left the area long before the Trail of Tears and had gone to a variety of other places which the federal government had previously offered to them; the Trail of Tears was the last removal of the Cherokees, not the first.

  10. Type in "climate 2,200 BC and the google screen just expldes with hits.

    Here is an excerpt from an example:

    "Analysis of the gulf core is ongoing, but deMenocal has already extracted enough information to confirm Weiss's suspicions. To track dry spells in the sediments, he and his colleague Heidi Cullen looked for dolomite, a mineral found in the mountains of Iraq and Turkey and on the Mesopotamian floodplains that could have been transported to the gulf only by wind. Most of the Holocene section of the core consists of calcium carbonate sediments typical of ocean bottoms.



    "And then all of a sudden, at exactly 4,200 calendar years, there's this big spike of dolomite," says deMenocal--a fivefold increase that slowly decays over about three centuries. The chemistry of the dolomite dust matches that of the dolomite in the Mesopotamian mountains and plains, verifying the mineral's source. And not only did deMenocal and his colleagues figure out what happened, they may have figured out how. Studies by Gerard Bond at Lamont-Doherty have shown that the timing of the drought coincided with a cooling period in the North Atlantic. According to a survey by Cullen of current meteorological records, such cooling would have dried out the Middle East and western Asia by creating a pressure gradient that drew moisture to the north and away from the Mediterranean.



    "The whole disruption, collapse bit, well, I just have to take Harvey at his word," says deMenocal. "What I tried to do is bring some good hard climate data to the problem." Why hasn't anybody seen this signature of calamity before? Simple, says deMenocal. "No one looked for it."



    Weiss's first hints of climate-associated calamity came from a survey of his principal excavation site, a buried city in northeastern Syria called Tell Leilan. Tell Leilan (rhymes with "Ceylon") was one of three major cities on the Habur Mains to be taken over by the Akkadian Empire around 2300 B.C. The city covered more than 200 acres topped by a haughty acropolis, and was sustained by a tightly regulated system of rain-fed agriculture that was co-opted and intensified by the imperialists from the south. Weiss had asked Marie-Agnes Courty of the National Center for Scientific Research in France to examine. the ancient soils of Tell Leilan to help him understand the agricultural development of the region. She reported that a section dating from 2200 to 1900 B.C. showed evidence of severe drought, including an eight-inch-thick layer of windblown sand and a marked absence of earthworm tunnels . . . . ."

    1. Sahara went dry about the same time -

      The initial greening of the Sahara occurred about 10,500 years ago and it stayed lush for several millennia. (Cave paintings of crocodiles and giraffes left by prehistoric humans attest to the once savannalike climate.)

      Like slides in a presentation, the sediment layers reveal how these humid conditions changed and reduced Yoa to an isolated oasis. Tropical plants and evergreen shrubs, still plentiful about 5,500 years ago, began to decline as the area dried out over the next 1,000 years. The desiccation continued, and, by 700 B.C., mostly desert flora like the hardy acacia tree dotted the now-parched landscape.

      Sahara from bountiful to barren.

      "Cave paintings of crocodiles and giraffes "

      Same thing happened in Nevada, but don't know if it was at the same time.

  11. I'm an eighth French but never did figure out how.

    It's amazing isn't it? Polynesians sailing across the ocean, they sailed the stars, not the seas, they say. Migratory gene. Alaska land bridge. The surface of the earth is 70% water or so, same as our body, salt content the same. Many myths say we came from the earth, Adam and such. Maybe deeper we should say we came from the seas. Before that - space, gravity - who the hell are we? I've been corresponding with a cousin. Solutreans, Doggerland People, she agrees, we don't even know who we really are, where we came from, for sure.

    My aunt wanted to be half native American, half Swede.

    What I was wondering was if Rufus could speak any Cherokee. You Sam?

    You guys being related, you ought to try to write one another in the old language.
