\"The Adam and Eve Story: the History of Cataclysms, Chan Thomas, Emerson House, 1963. Stated second printing. Exceedingly scarce speculative apocalyptic tract that was seized by the CIA in the early 1960s. Having been released in 2013, it quickly became an internet sensation confirming many pseudo conspiracy ideas around government cover ups concerning floods, earthquakes and ancient cultures. From speculative history online: \"An online urban legend gaining a great deal of popularity at the time of writing professes, in the early 1960s a book titled The Adam and Eve Story was published and soon after seized by the Central Intelligence Agency with all evidence of its existence being scrubbed from history for the next fifty years. Of the supposed 284 pages in the original text a mere fifty-five were released in June 2013 under the Freedom of Information Act\"Chauncey Powers Thomas (1920 -1998): (from the back of the book on the Author) Mr. Thomas attended Dartmouth College and Columbia University, receiving his degree in Electrical Engineering from the latter in 1943. As a result of his research since 1949, Mr. Thomas has become recognized as the world's leading authority in the field of cataclysmic geology and its relationship to uniformitarian geology. In 1959 he applied his findings to the possibility of earthquake prediction, and at a seminar in November, 1959 issued the results of his studies. He then accurately forecast the months, years, and locations of the major African and Chilean earthquakes of 1960, the Iranian earthquake of 1962, the Jugoslavian earthquake of 1963, and further predicted that California would have no major earthquakes for the following five years.Very Good. 41 pages. Booklet format with 2 staples. No writing or marks. VG+ condition. Sunning to back cover. Pages square, tight and generally clean. Colored cross section of the earth on inside front cover.

This now-declassified, 'sanitized' version of \"The Adam and Eve Story\" details the sudden 'end' of life on planet Earth. The book, details a very controversial pole shift theory which according to the author has been happening over and over again throughout history and will come again, \"just as it came to Noah\". 59ce067264
