Kerr Watch

Elapsed time since Richard Kerr failed to inform his Science readers of the confirmation of nanodiamonds at the YDB: 6 years, 3 months, and 1 day

Geology Conference: Radioactive "Green Layer" at Ice Age site in Mexico

The markers were located at a well-known Mexican Ice-Age site

This is particularly interesting in light of Vance Haynes’ entirely separate publication last week. I cant find much on these folks, or at least Mellissa Scruggs. Perhaps they are young. If so, hats off to them. Their […]

Royal Astronomical Society: Napier provides astronomical model for YDB Impact Event

Bill Napier has a significant paper coming out soon in the Monthly Bulletin of the Royal Astronomical Society, and I got a look at it pre-publication. While I cant share the paper itself, I can share the abstract STRIKE and a few snippets STRIKE. The paper is significant because for the first time it […]

Terror From The Sky

This 1498 engraving of a bad day on the continent caught my eye on Michel-Alain Combes’ page here. I think it is from a famous French fall of that time period.

Can someone translate the French for our readers? [ Click the comments link below to see the translation and explanation […]

Google Earth video of Carolina Bays

A couple of months ago I was having some fun with Google Earth Pro and put together this little video demonstrating the ubiquity of Carolina Bays in Eastern North Carolina. This is one of those projects where you swear you will return and do a “second draft” in the near future — and never do. […]

NASA mentions

I have been interested for some time whether the WISE mission now underway is able to confirm or refute, in part, the widely dismissed theories of Bill Napier and the British NEO catastrophists. In particular, that the solar system is host to dangerous dark bodies as well as the better known and more easily spotted […]

Three of Four Clovis Sites RADIOACTIVE according to Haynes et. al.

I’m reading the recent Vance Haynes paper and there is much on which to comment. But this caught my eye and I just had to share.

Haynes et. al. took the surprising step of analyzing the sediment profile above and below the layer where the last of the first Clovis indians are found — […]

Just Published: Independents locate suspected ET Black Mat and more in Venezuela

An international team of scientists representing a number of disciplines locate bizarre materials and ET impact markers in a distinct layer of well-dated sediments from the initiation of the Younger Dryas and publish their findings in a major scientific journal. 2007 Firestone et.al. in PNAS?

AGU Fall Meeting Re-Cap Part Two: Tom Stafford's Texas Hill Country Paleo site littered with evidence at start of Younger Dryas

Tom Stafford was an expert among experts at the Fall Meeting. I became aware of Tom Stafford when Redefining the Age of Clovis: Implications for the Peopling of America was published in Science in 2007. He is the Former Director of the Laboratory of AMS Radicarbon Research at University of Colorado. And for more than […]
