Verschuur, Gerrit L.
Gerrit L. Verschuur (1937- ) was born in South Africa and is now living in Lakeland, Tennessee, working as a radio astronomer. He has written a book in which he interprets many of the ancient catastrophe myths in a similar manner to Edith & Alexander Tollmann and Victor Clube & Bill Napier. They all agree that catastrophic collisions with our planet occurred within the memory of man and are preserved in the legends of various cultures. These impacts have been seen as a possible cause of such events as the Biblical Deluge and even the destruction of Atlantis.
