If you go back 3200 more years from 10,700 BC, then you come to 13,900 BC, which marks the event that led to the end of the last Ice Age! LaViolette derived a date of 13,865 (based on ice core data and other factors). Crap man, I'm no astro-physicist, but this is beginning to look like a genuine pattern.
The various disasters that took place at 3200 year intervals sometimes led to rapid warming and sometimes to rapid cooling, therefore LaViolette's theory of periodic cosmic waves (from galactic core burps) is probably not applicable to this particular recurring nightmare. It is more consistent with meteorite strikes that either fall on the oceans (causing global warming) or on land (causing global cooling). So, what's in store the next go around would again be a cosmic "crap shoot". And, as it was written, we may not be able to tell the day nor the hour, but this century seems definite. The ancients also seemed to know when they had entered an "end of the world" window. The verse in Genesis about mankind being given only 120 (more) years comes to mind. This indicates that the event could be predicted with some degree of accuracy.
Adding the 13,865 data point to our sample set adjusts the average slightly (to 3,176 years between impacts).
If the above data is accurate, then we are in the middle of the window for another impact event. If the impact is "late" like the 1159 BC event, then there may be another 70 years before "it" happens. And the event itself could unfold over a seven year ("tribulation") period. If it is a severe "visitation", then short-term climate could be affected for much longer than seven years, which was the case in 1159 BC (corresponding to 20 years with no harvests in the Near East). And long-term climate effects would also take place (depending on whether the impacts were predominately over land or water).
It would take an expert to determine whether a deviation of several decades (from the average of approximately 3200 years) is feasible for any kind of orbiting material in our solar system. Another explanation might be that the solar system is encountering bands of debris in space at these approximate intervals. The interval of 2900 years also appears multiple times in the limited data set of global disasters. Events associated with the years 12,500 BC and 9600 BC are 2,900 years apart. So are the events of 3114 BC and 207 BC. So are the events of 2450 BC and 454 AD. The number of 660 (or perhaps 666, if you will) also emerges. The events of 3114 and 2450 are 664 years apart. The events of 207 BC and 454 AD are 661 years apart.
I have no idea whether debris is found in space at regular intervals (e.g., due to the shock waves of former explosions, or whatever). Yet, there does appear to be at least one cyclical phenomenon going on. And, I'm not liking this scenario at all!!
