Milutin Milanković is a very interesting figure of mathematician.
His theory of cycles of glaciers is the scientific explanation of the historical fact of an Exit from Eden.
That exit triggered the advanced civilizations of the Nile and Mesopotamian valleys, and most likely lived in the memory of subsequent generations of men and women, building the myth of expulsion from Paradise.
The biblical narration was just the most influential of all the mythical reconstructions of that climatic shift; totally unable to make any sense of what Milutin explained from the vantage point of 20th century science.
Both Asimov (“New Guide to Science”) and Lee Silver (“Challenging Nature”) talk about him.
