  The Ishmael Community: Questions and Answers

The Question (ID Number 160)...

    Can you point me in the right direction to read/study further on "how ancient civilizations came to be abandoned"? I am interested to know if there is any evidence that the people of any those abandoned vehicles were able to get out safely.

    ...and the response:

    There are tons of books on these abandoned civilizations, all based on the theory that they "failed" (as opposed to being abandoned). It seems quite inconceivable to most authors that anyone would abandon something so wonderful as a civilization in which seventy percent of the populace live like pack animals. Although in some cases there's evidence of violent endings, there's no reason to suppose that those who abandoned their "vehicles" were unable to "get out safely."
