Ray Covill was born and raised in the Fairhaven/New Bedford area of Massachusetts. Birding and boating have been among his favorite pastimes over the years. His passion for birding continues to lead Ray and his wife on extensive travels throughout both North and Central America.
It was sometime during the 1960s or 1970s when Ray watched a television program that addressed the Bible’s claim that The Great Flood covered all of the earth. The program proposed that Earth suddenly split open and poured out sea water that covered the world—and then, it tightly closed itself up again. It later opened up once more, and the excess seawater went back underground. This not only seemed absurd, but quite impossible to him.
Ray finally concluded that the original text must have read that the flood covered all of the area in Noah’s world. Now, there was an answer he could really believe. This realization was the inspiration and the motivation for him to put pen to paper and write his debut work, Revisiting Armageddon.
7,500 years ago a huge asteroid struck the Gulf of Mexico causing major changes in the Gulf area, Florida, Bahamas, and the Central America countries from Panama to Mexico. The asteroid sent a slice of the North Atlantic charging toward Morocco. As it mushroomed out, it affected areas as far north as England and ground out the Mediterranean area which became a sea.
