About the Book

In Cataclysm, author Nick Gass takes geology out of the oil patch to authenticate the first twenty-five verses of the Bible. He presents a multidisciplinary exploration, implementing scientific reasoning, to explain some of the ancient history of The Middle East.

Gass discusses how the rise of science has provided a platform for interpreting ancient legends. In Cataclysm, he casts a different light on a number of historical events and considers a variety of topics:

Moses and the first twenty-five verses of Genesis

The ways in which the climate may have provided the stimulus

A different view on the migration out of Africa

The why and how of the Flood

The Garden of Eden as the first Jewish Diaspora

A Second Flood

The Land of Kush

Exploring the Bible and other ancient texts, Cataclysm provides a refreshing look at some of the world’s past events and places them in a new multidisciplinary perspective.
