Evolution by Catastrophe suggests that life evolves when Earth is struck or effected by natural catastrophes. One of the most famous is the Cambrian explosion, where a lot of animals and changes occurred, according to the Theory of Evolution and fossil dating theory.
Could the ancient European man have been changed by the last Ice Age?
Could evolution also be effected by changes to our electromagnetic environment?
Could he have transformed into the modern variants of European humans without the need for him having become extinct? So there would still be traces of the old European DNA in modern Europeans and other peoples?
The Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) represents the most significant climatic event since the emergence of anatomically modern humans (AMH). In Europe, the LGM may have played a role in changing morphological features as a result of adaptive and stochastic processes. We use craniometric data to examine morphological diversity in pre- and post-LGM specimens ... Our results show significant differences across the four periods ... These findings suggest that the LGM had a major impact on AMH populations in Europe prior to the Neolithic.

Evolution by Catastrophe - European Ice Age Man
All the quotes below are from the BBC article First Europeans 'weathered Ice Age'
The genetic ancestry of the earliest Europeans survived the ferocious Ice Age that took hold after the continent was initially settled by modern people.
That is the suggestion of a study of DNA from a male hunter who lived in western Russia 36,000 years ago.
His genome is not exactly like those of people who lived in Europe just after the ice sheets melted 10,000 years ago.
But the study suggests the earliest Europeans did contribute their genes to later populations.
They discovered a surprising genetic "unity" running from the first modern humans in Europe, through to later peoples. This, they claim, suggests that a "meta-population" of Palaeolithic hunter-gatherers managed to survive the Ice Age and colonise the landmass of Europe for more than 30,000 years.
There is evidence that the last Ice Age to hit Europe was a fairly instantaneous event - frozen Siberian Mammoths found with delicate plant stuff and seed pods still intact in their mouths and stomachs which means dying at the same time of year. Even if this is wrong and the last Ice Age was a slow natural event it certainly changed Europe and its natural energy and was a catastrophe.
The Electric Universe Theory would suggest a mechanic of an electromagnetic/plasma event to trigger an near instant Ice Age. It is likely that this event would itself been highly electromagnetic.
And one recent study looking at the skull features of ancient Europeans found that Upper Palaeolithic people were rather different from populations that lived during the later Mesolithic period.
Evolution by Catastrophe or Electromagnetic Evolution?
The arrival of the first farmers transformed the genetic landscape of Europe - to the extent that no modern population is a good match for the Mesolithic Europeans encountered by the farmers as they spread out across the continent.
"First farmers" or a new type of European humans after the ice age event/catastrophe?
Or in an Electric Universe if the Ice Age stopped as suddenly as it started that the humans had another evolutionary radiation?
And what of these mysterious first farmers, the Basal Eurasians, whose DNA came from the original ancient Europeans then disappeared for 30,000 years to suddenly reappear back in Europe?
