I have just re-read a fascinating book which proposes a comet struck North America 14,000 years ago. I can't seem to find any supporting information in TUB.

The book is: The Cycle of Cosmic Catastrophes; by Richard Firestone, Allen West, and Simon Warwick-Smith. Publisher: Bear & Company (June 16, 2006)

I believe the authors have fully researched and painstakingly documented the evidence, and their logic is sound. Is it possible that such an occurrence took place without being documented in TUB? Could it be that something of this magnitude was anticipated by the Revelators, hence, leaving it to be discovered in its due course?

P.1109 - 3 Mankind should understand that we who participate in the revelation of truth are very rigorously limited by the instructions of our superiors. We are not at liberty to anticipate the scientific discoveries of a thousand years. Revelators must act in accordance with the instructions which form a part of the revelation mandate. We see no way of overcoming this difficulty, either now or at any future time. We full well know that, while the historic facts and religious truths of this series of revelatory presentations will stand on the records of the ages to come, within a few short years many of our statements regarding the physical sciences will stand in need of revision in consequence of additional scientific developments and new discoveries. These new developments we even now foresee, but we are forbidden to include such humanly undiscovered facts in the revelatory records. Let it be made clear that revelations are not necessarily inspired. The cosmology of these revelations is not inspired. It is limited by our permission for the co-ordination and sorting of present-day knowledge. While divine or spiritual insight is a gift, human wisdom must evolve.

Would such an earth-shaking discovery [ Sorry, I just couldn't resist! :) ] be a "...historic fact..." or something within the "...not inspired..." cosmology? I am satisfied with learning that TUB doesn't include all of everything that we will learn about our little world; but I sure wish this information were in it somewhere! Have I missed it?

Ah! To be host to God, Himself; and to be enriched beyond measure by that incomprehensible treasure!

I had a brief look at the book you mentioned. There is to bee found an amazing lot of discussion about the book on the net!

Actually, you might find much information about climatic changes and their effects on the animal world in the UBook paper 61:

UB (699.8) 61:5.7 These first two ice invasions were not extensive in Eurasia. During these early epochs of the ice age North America was overrun with mastodons, woolly mammoths, horses, camels, deer, musk oxen, bison, ground sloths, giant beavers, saber-toothed tigers, sloths as large as elephants, and many groups of the cat and dog families. But from this time forward they were rapidly reduced in numbers by the increasing cold of the glacial period. Toward the close of the ice age the majority of these animal species were extinct in North America.

UB (702.1) 61:7.17 The ice age is the last completed geologic period, the so-called Pleistocene, over two million years in length.


It was varying degrees of glaciations that influenced the climate during the Pleistocene period!

http://www.astrobio....rs-clovis-comet
Skeletal remains of mammoth, horse, camel, Dire wolf, and others tell of the megafauna that roamed southern Arizona during the Pleistocene Epoch until these large animals became extinct 13,000 years ago. The time of extinction


But catastrophes induced by comets are not very popular themes among real experts!

No Evidence for Clovis Comet Catastrophe, Archaeologists Say:

Some links about the animals motioned by the UBook:
The horse probably lived in grasslands and floodplains, which is what Hagerman was like 3 million years ago. Native North American horses went extinct about 10,000 years ago, at the same time as many other large-bodied species of the period.
