Here are a couple of quick reads sent to me recently providing evidentiary and intellectual insights regarding the unpopular belief that novel viruses arrive from space (inside specks of cosmic dust millions of times larger).[..
The Chiemgau impact in Bavarian Germany stands out as particularly sympathetic “martyr” crater. The evidence for a Bronze Age euro-apocalypse is sincerely published and well established as a legitimate hypothesis based on decades of meticulous fieldwork, but entirely dismissed because the proponents believe the impact was relatively recent in geological terms, and the authors[..
To gauge the depth of the anti-science pathology surrounding the Younger Dryas Impact, it is instructive to review a single quote from an oft-quoted ‘expert’ in cosmic impact craters, Dr. Christian Koeberl. In 2018, shortly after NASA announced in Science the discovery of the Hiawatha Crater in NW Greenland, Koeberl provided his opinion, which[..
It has been proposed that the Younger Dryas period/GS-1 was initiated by a cosmic impact, for which there is indirect and debated evidence in a large number of sites in the NH surrounding the North Atlantic region (Kennett et al., 2015). A very significant Platinum (Pt) spike has been identified in the GISP2 ice[..
Indefatigable genius and digital friend of the Tusk, Dr. Martin Sweatman, authored a surprise blockbuster this week. Below is a peer-reviewed and fully accepted pre-online synthesis overview of the Younger Dryas Impact controversy since the very first paper in 2007. ‘The Younger Dryas impact hypothesis: review of the impact evidence’ concludes…[..
The sciency internet is alive with consensus condemnation and universal damnation for a new paper from Rhawn Joseph, now dubbed the “Tiger King of Mars.” In the article below, Joseph et al. continues a radical break from conventional interpretations of Martian photography, believing a number of odd features photographed by the Martian rovers are…wait[..
SURFICIAL QUARTZ SAND DEPOSITS ON THE ATLANTIC COASTAL PLAIN: EOLIAN, FLUVIAL OR MARINE? THE CASE FOR A CATASTROPHIC DELIVERY MECHANISM DAVIAS, Michael, Cintos Research, 1381 Hope Street, Stamford, CT 06907 and GILBRIDE, Jeanette L., Cintos Research, Raleigh, NC 27613, [email protected] Regions of the Atlantic Coastal Plain are often capped by a surficial sheet of[..
It seems like a lazy cheat to post YouTube videos two weeks in a row, instead of writing in-depth subject articles on the Tusk. But who has the time for that? And anyway the video below is a particularly special communication. It is special because WGBH\PBS no longer stream this 2009 episode on their[..
Avi Loeb is no household name, but he wants to be. The chairman of the Department of Astronomy at Harvard has appeared on more than 50 podcasts since the start of the year. Given a minimum of one hour per podcast, I’d ask for a week’s pay back if I were Harvard. The guy[..
Free speech podcasting is an awesome thing. Before our digital overlords take podcasting from us, the Tusk is going to enjoy it as much as possible as a consumer and a guest. Joining geo-bear and catastrophe sherpa Randall Carlson on his show this week was particularly fun.[..
This is a priceless video spoof concerning the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. And surprisingly, it is directed at the most timely part of the actual debate — the most recent attack on the hypothesis from Sun et al. — which it manages to DESTROY. https://t.co/WQtQFoDsRk — George Howard (@CosmicTusk) February 6, 2021[..
In a nutshell, Napier’s study shows how comets are likely to fragment and lose considerable mass during encounters with the inner Solar System. The debris trail can expand to a cross section larger than Earth, increasing the odds of impacts with Earth. Also, the debris has considerable impact energy. But over time, that energy[..
In 2018, on January 23, Russia was first to publish the discovery of space based life obtained by appropriate technical means in a collaborative international scientific effort. Based on genes swiped with a tampon from the OUTSIDE of an International Space Station window, three respected Russian laboratories, and twelve well-credentialed scientists, published a peer-reviewed[..
The only thing more fun than touring Egypt top to bottom is making the trip with creative people that record the adventure and share it with the world. The Tusk is thrilled to have the memories and interpretations of our wonderful expedition out there to enjoy for years to come. Lemme know if I’ve[..
If you can’t toot your own horn on New Years, when can you? As a citizen scientist the Tusk is darn proud — and thankful to the credentialed lead authors — to close 2020 with exactly 100 co-author citations. More interesting than my navel, perhaps, is the trend in citations concerning the Younger Dryas[..
Between Egypt and the ‘Ro I have neglected to post a lot in the last few months. I’ll be trying to rectify that this year, in part by doing shorter posts with more 3rd party media concerning the Younger Dryas Impact Catastrophe. There have also been a couple of new papers I’ve not posted[..
Well, the Tusk has returned from two weeks in the land of the Pharaohs and enjoyed the most physically exhausting and intellectually fulfilling experience of my lifetime. I joined the hosts, Ben of UnchartedX and Jimmy of Bright Insight, and 27 new friends for what I believe is one of the great modern tours[..
From Dr. Ted Steele, to a redacted correspondent (11/10/20):
Dear Sir, I represent a group of international scientists led by the renowned astrophysicist/astrobiologist Professor N. Chandra Wickramasinghe PhD (Cardiff), Professor Reginald M Gorczynski MD PhD ( Toronto Health Network, UoT) and other colleagues from the UK, Australia, Canada, Japan, USA, and Russia.[..
