Humanity twice survived total extinction in Mossel Bay - By Adv. De Waal Lubbe

We know that humanity survived total extinction, here in Mossel Bay and its immediate coast to the East and West 170 000 years ago, as I have extensively written about, as can in detail be read about in the above articles.

We further know from scientific findings at archaeological sites, that Modern Humans occupied De Kelders Cave, 100-70 000 years ago, Klasies River Cave, Oyster Bay, 120 - 40 000 years ago, Nelson's cave, Plettenberg Bay, 120 000 years ago, Ysterfontein, 100-50 000 years ago, Border Cave, 87-30 000 years ago, Howiesons Poort Shelter, 65-59 000 years ago, Sibudu Cave, 77-38 000 years ago. These are undisputedly, the oldest findings of Modern Human occupation and activity on earth.

In Mpumalanga, the so called "Adam's Calendar", built 75-100 000 years ago, was discovered, and is the oldest man made structure on earth. This was part of a huge metropolis, which was occupied by thousands of Modern humans, and measures in conservative estimates, about 1500 square miles.  That's bigger than Johannesburg nowadays.  It's part of an even larger community that is about 10 000 square miles and was constructed and populated from +- 160-75 000 years ago.  What happened to these people and what destroyed all?

The answer lies in the Toba Super Eruption, which occurred +- 75 000 years ago, at Lake Toba, (Sumatra, Indonesia), and is recognized as on of the earth's largest known eruptions.  This super volcanic event plunged Earth into a 6-10 year volcanic winter, which resulted in the world's human population, being reduced to 10 000 or even a mere 1 00 breeding pairs, creating a bottle neck in human evolution.  Some researchers are of the opinion that the Toba Eruption produced, not only a catastrophic volcanic winter for years, but also an additional 1 000 year cooling period, in other words, it took 1 000 years to get back to normal.

Again, the South-African Eastern Coast, saved humanity from total extinction, with its very mild climate, being at the Southern most Point of Africa, the furthest away and not being so dramatically and severely exposed to the consequences of the volcanic winter ice age.

As pointed out above and can be seen from the photograph, (Courtesy and info Natural History Museum, 21 May 2013) Blombos Cave (BBC), Pinnacle Point Cave (PP), Klasies River (KR), Howiesons Poort Shelter (HPS), Sibudu Cave (SC) and Border Cave (BC), archaeological findings prove that, after the Toba Super Eruption, Modern Thinking Man again survived total extinction, and lived in the South Easter Coast of South-Africa, after that.  These early Modern Humans again moved into Africa, up the Coast, and only +- 40 000 years ago, walked into Europe, Asia, the Americas, etc.

Scientists are in agreement that the biggest threat to Humanity's continued existence, are these super eruptions and especially the predicted Yellow Stone, America, Super Eruption.  Where they say, one can possibly survive the effects of such, is to be, the furthest away, which we are, here in Mossel Bay, and the South Eastern Coast of South Africa.  If, as happened 200 000 years ago and 75 000 years ago, the world experiences an ice age, with a climate drop of 15 Degrees Celsius, we might just be lucky enough to survive total extinction for the third known time, and hopefully the sea food recourses would not be depleted by then.
