The ancient ruins stood strong and proud. The precision cutting of large bricks stumped historians. Evolution suggested the population only had bronze hand tools. Humans only became smarter, just ask Darwin. 21st century science voiced new opinions based on rigorous testing. The ancestors had access to advance technology. Carbon dating suggested a time before a great flood.
“So, you’ll update history?”
Eons of years ago, humans gained knowledge and power. With the hit of a button, man-made comets smashed into the earth. Plates collided, ice melted… water claimed the land, drowning civilisation. Ground zero. Survivors entered a stone age. History runs in cycles.
History is a playground for The Muse. I’m able to contemplate theories, even the outrageous ones, all in the name of fiction — of course. In recent years, it appears science is debunking the ancient history narrative or at least seriously questions the mainstream outlook. Like with anything, politics rules.
