Hello, this is my first post here. I've got a few questions about the global catastrophe theory. I'm a huge fan of Graham's work, and I've watched almost every video he has on Youtube. So I'm not coming at this from an angle of wanting to disprove him. I just have some questions about how this all fits together.

1. When the flood raised sea levels by 400 feet, what happened to settlements that were above that elevation? How did they get wiped out? Did the global mother civilization have no settlements that were higher than sea level?

2. If the comet slammed into the ice sheet, how did that damage anything? I'm not really sure how that works. When they hit dry ground, they kick up huge amounts of debris that block out the sun... but when they hit ice...? I know it would have melted the place where it hit, and there would have been water vapor... but I'm having a hard time envisioning a single large boulder kicking up enough water vapor to cause millions of cubic miles of rain, or destabilizing an entire continent's worth of ice.

3. Gobekli Tepe was around 10,000 BC, right after the cataclysm. That makes sense - the survivors landed in Turkey (and other places) and built stuff. But there's another 7,000 years until Egypt gets started. What happened in between?

The Egyptians, the Olmecs, the Caral people, and many others, clearly show signs of cultural transfer. Clearly an older civilization landed on those shores, and transferred its technology there. But the timeline is off. The Egyptians were 7000 years after the cataclysm, the Olmecs were 9000 years after the cataclysm... what's up with that?
