Loose Goose: The Bos all over the map

Long ago the Tusk noted a fascinating 2010 missive from The Bos concerning the virtue of everyone (else) remaining intellectually flexible. Or, as he put it, having a willingness to “change your mind.” Here is the link and I have copied the text at the bottom.

The Bos’ statement has not aged well. [...]

Nice Dice?: The Bos disputes Harvard

It is safe to say The Bos is becoming obsessed. Someone please count and let me know, but I believe he has four publications this year seeking to undermine the Younger Dryas Boundary Hypothesis. Over time he has published more than a dozen. Today he is back in PNAS — alone — and in [...]

Extraordinary Evidence and Inexplicable Ignorance: Bunch (2012) and The Bos (2013)

 

Bunch

 Boslough

It is telling to read competing journal articles regarding the Younger Dryas Boundary Event. For example below is the recent paper from The Bos, et al., and below that a publication from the YDB team the year before. (I was added as an author to that [...]

Earth to The Bos and Phil: The true cross-sectional area of the potentially dangerous material is greater than that of the original comet itself

Elenin: Probability of Mars Impact 1-120 or so 

These media scientists are just too much. Below is bad astronomer Phil Plait validating the Napier Astronomical Model for the Younger Dryas Impact(s) and refuting The Bos’ [...]

Le Bos, mais pourquoi pas la France?!

But why not France, Bos!?

The news release

 

Independent investigators have failed to confirm the reports of enhanced concentrations of spherules and platinum-group elements in YD boundary sediments.

Napier: Not So Fast Bos….

ABSTRACT Intersection with the debris of a large (50-100 km) short-period comet during the Upper Palaeolithic provides a satisfactory explanation for the catastrophe of celestial origin which has been postulated to have occurred around 12900 BP, and which pre-saged a return to ice age conditions of duration 1300 years. The Taurid Complex appears to [...]

Holy Hagiography!: Boslough “Jonesed” By Sandia Labs

I have seen some fawning press releases in my day but this is the most obsequious schlock I have ever encountered. Mark or his mum must have stayed up real late writing this one. I seriously doubt any synthesis rebuttal paper containing so little original work (What did kill all those animals? Global warming?) has ever [...]
