[quote:Halcyon Dayz, FCD:MV8xNzM5NDA1XzI4ODEzMTYxXzMzOUNEMTE=] It's called the [b]Toba catastrophe theory[/b]. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toba_catastrophe_theory [color=blue]The Toba supereruption (Youngest Toba Tuff or simply YTT) was a supervolcanic eruption that occurred some time between 69,000 and 77,000 years ago at Lake Toba (Sumatra, Indonesia). It is recognized as one of the Earth's largest known eruptions. The related catastrophe theory holds that this event plunged the planet into a 6-to-10-year volcanic winter and possibly an additional 1,000-year cooling episode. This change in temperature resulted in the world's human population being reduced to 10,000 or even a mere 1,000 breeding pairs, creating a bottleneck in human evolution. The Toba event is the most closely studied supereruption. In 1993, science journalist Ann Gibbons first suggested a link between the eruption and a bottleneck in human evolution.[/color] :book: [/quote]
