Comet Research Group responds to Robert Schoch

Robert Schoch

Dr. Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D., of Boston University, is a thought provoking scientist with an open-minded approach to new ideas. Unfortunately his interest in disruptive theories has never extended itself to the Younger Dryas Boundary hypothesis, as he details on his webpage in a critique titled “Controversies Concerning the End […]

Comet Research Group crowdfunding appeal reschedules launch to Monday, November 14th: Graham Hancock to appear on Joe Rogan podcast Tuesday the 15th

The Comet Research Group crowdfunding effort announced on the Tusk last month, and originally scheduled for November 1st, was pushed back in the interest of avoiding the pending election hysteria.

Awkward but promising: Compromise paper from Andronikov & Van Hoesel

Anyway, it is quite possible that some short and […]

Here They Go Again: Holliday and Surovell use dozer not trowel
