A Comet May Have Destroyed This Paleolithic Village 12,800 Years Ago
Fragments of a comet likely hit Earth 12,800 years ago, and a little Paleolithic village in Syria might have suffered the impact
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Science and knowledge are already under siege from a motley ragbag of climate change deniers, MMR sceptics, 5G phone nutters. There's no need to encourage others.
