"The last extinction event, 11 million years ago, saw 10 per cent of the Earth’s inhabitants wiped out. This means there is around 16million years until the next event takes place, although the graph shows that occasionally the event takes place up to 10 million years early."
So instead of 16m, we might have 6m years remaining: And therein lies my problem with Western Science how can you present a cyclical timeline that's 10 million years off the exact hour.
