Mr. Grodine wrote:

“There are other (possible) Native American
memories of the ice age impacts which I
was not familiar with. The following comes
from Adrienne Mayor:”

Oral tradition is certainly a source of information about possible
prehistoric catastrophes as discussed in numerous publications.
However, the lack of specific chronological information and the
utter vagueness of them makes it possible to use any of them
to support the catastrophe of choice for almost any point in time
within the Late Pleistocene, Early Holocene, Middle Holocene,
and Late Holocene. For example, Dr. Masse is using many of
the same oral traditions and folklore that Mr. Grodine uses, as
evidence of an 6807 BP impact in the Indian Ocean. For
example go see Ancient Crash, Epic Wave, by Sandra
Blakeseed in the November 14, 2006, New York Times at:

This article stated:

“Dr. Masse analyzed 175 flood myths from around
the world, and tried to relate them to known and
accurately dated natural events like solar eclipses
and volcanic eruptions. Among other evidence,
he said, 14 flood myths specifically mention a
full solar eclipse, which could have been the one
that occurred in May 2807 B.C.”

At least they have testable and credible physical evidence, i.e.
the Fenambosy chevron in Madagascar, that something really
nasty might have happened as noted in “WAPMERR funded
International Tsunami Expedition to Southern Madagascar -
August 29 – September 13, 2006” at; . Also, there are

They also back up their interpretations with what they theorize
to be an actual crater, as detailed in May 7th, 2005--New
Revelations about Impact Crater at:

The web page stated:

“This year, she will describe work she and
colleagues have done in the central Indian
Ocean. Below is an abstract about this
research from a recent scientific conference.

Impact Produce a Global Deluge?

They are claiming that their crater is the “Deluge Crater”. The
claims to have found either the “Deluge impact” or the source of
Deluge stories are just as numerous as the number of claims of
people having found Atlantis. :-) :-) Evidence of infinitely
malleable nature of oral traditions and how they can be selectively
interpreted to “fit” theory of choice being advocated is seen in
how various oral traditions are argued to be iron-clad proof of
mutually exclusive events, including anything from the
catastrophic flooding of the Black Sea to a “Deluge” caused by
either supernatural forces or divine intervention.
