Who or what were Adam, Noah, and Elijah? Where they real or imaginary? What exactly was Creation? Did something really happen sometime around 4,000 BC as the Bible tells us? What exactly was leprosy? Why is the Islamic world in turmoil after centuries of quiescence? Are the mass uprisings democratic movements against tyrannical regimes, or fanatical drives to promote the spread of Islam, or is there something else far more sinister at play? Adam to Apophis provides answers to all of these questions. For millennia major religions have held the unflinching belief that at some future point the world will once more enter an 'end time' phase. According to Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish, and Mayan reckoning that 'end time' phase is this current century. Christianity also holds the same belief. During such phases the earth has been subjected to airbursts and meteoric impacts which in turn have spawned decades long sequences of major environmental traumas in the form of extreme weather, volcanic eruptions, massive earthquakes, and tsunamis. This 'future' phase is itself part of a larger cycle to which the Earth has been subjected a number of times during the past 6,000 years, resulting each time in worldwide societal collapse. Religious or mythological texts exist which feature fantastic creatures and long lived superhuman beings. The records have been fastidiously preserved for millennia. Jewish and Chinese texts have preserved associated chrologies. However these ancient chrologies have been repeatedly discounted or igred by modern scholarship. In the past few decades science has built up its own independent chrology of the earth's recent past by means of dendrochrology, ice cores, ice rafting, sedimentology, volcalogy and astromical retro calculations. These w provide us with a tangible record of climatic and terrestrial traumas stretching back thousands of years. At first sight the two disciplines would appear to be in total opposition- the one seemingly relying on 'faith' and 'fabricated' evidence, and the other on scientific reason and hard fact. Given therefore the seeming polarity one would therefore expect to find little if any synchronicity between the two. What happens if we overlay the templates? Modern science has recently discovered an important earthly traumatic cycle kw as Bond Events which occur every 1400-1500 years. The religious texts also clearly display kwledge of this cycle. Islam for example holds the belief that it will only last some 1400-1500 years. Adam to Apophis demonstrates that the concept of millenarianism is idle fantasy but ultimately rests upon a firm foundation of real physical traumas. The book traces this primary cycle in stages back from the present day to: Bond Event 1: the advent of Islam in the 6th century AD when there was massive terrestrial and social upheaval worldwide. Bond Event 2: the 9th century BC where we discover the same pattern. In the Bible this is represented by the Elijah cycle of stories which focus upon a hitherto unidentified massive volcanic eruption in Arabia, but with clear evidence from regions as far afield as China that the trauma was worldwide. Bond Event 3: Noah's Flood, his true identity and the real location of the 'Ark' -still a major religious site comprising the largest cemetery in the world with millions of bodies buried there. The identities of the Chinese Emperors Yao, Shun, and Yu and a second impact site. Piora Oscillation: Death of Adam. The Nephilim. The Chinese Flame Emperors. The Mahabharata and Krishna Bond Event 4/ 5.9 Kiloyear Event: The true nature of 'Creation', the identity of Adam, the Ramayana and the Burckle Crater Adam to Apophis is an original and compelling work. It will be of indispensable interest t only to scientists and academics in a variety of disciplines, but also to the layman of whatever or religious persuasion.
