Miami Beach "impact crater" goes entirely unstudied

If you ever suspected something may be wrong with science look no further. In 2012 brave citizen of Miami Cory Boehne noted that just south of the Port of Miami ship channel, less than two miles from downtown Miami Beach in 30′ of water, was the signature of a cosmic collision: A complex impact crater with an extraordinarily well defined central peak.

Whoops...

Tusk makes mistake on podcast

I made a bad mistake on a great podcast Friday night. I accused Andrew Scott and a gaggle of other Younger Dryas Impact critics of sub-par work in their 2010 paper investigating carbon spherules, they DID use Transmission Electron Microscopes, and I flat out said they used only Optical Microscopes. Thankfully, since I brought the […]

Jumping through Hoopes

University of Kansas professor claims bias in The Bib

You would think the Tusk and Marc Young’s effort to develop an easily accessible, comprehensive bibliography of all peer-reviewed literature concerning the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis would prove a pretty uncontroversial matter. Indeed the effort might be appreciated by anyone interested in the subject, regardless of their support for the published evidence of global cataclysm […]

Praetorious investigating "mysterious" Younger Dryas materials

Reaches out on Twitter to help ID odd discovery in marine core

I can’t quite recall where I first heard of Summer Praetorious, but she is a respected professional in our area of inquiry. So I was intrigued today to see Summer post a pic of a collection of rather odd materials from a Younger Dryas marine core sample. Mighty cool. Cheers to Summer for sharing the […]

Permanent Younger Dryas Impact Bibliography and Paper Archive

Welcome to the permanent host page for the most comprehensive bibliography of scientific literature concerning the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. The bibliography was compiled in a collaboration between the Tusk and Mr. Marc Young, an Australian Archaeology & Enviro-Sci undergrad who performed most of the meticulous work. Significantly, this page will include not only the […]

Tusk challenges Rogan to question Tyson regarding the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis

The Tusk recently appeared as a guest on the UnchartedX YouTube series. It was fun and I have a lot of respect for Ben’s work to publicize the YDIH and the Comet Research Group. But if had to do the podcast over again, I would have made more than a passing reference to an idea […]

Randall on Halloween

Randall Carlson does a great job here explaining a really creepy but profound aspect of the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. Halloween, like death festivals worldwide in late October\early November, reflects the trauma inflicted by the Taurid Meteor stream on the ancients during recurring bombardments. As Bill Napier described it once to me, Earth’s intersection with […]

Christopher Moore of USC nails Platinum Layer at ~12,800 before present in White Pond, South Carolina

  New evidence that an extraterrestrial collision 12,800 years ago triggered an abrupt climate change for Earth The muck that’s been accumulating at the bottom of this lake for 20,000 years is like a climate time capsule. Christopher R. Moore, University of South Carolina What kicked off the Earth’s rapid cooling 12,800 years ago? In […]

YouTuber explains worldwide religion in context of the Younger Dryas impact

Tusk video from Tall el-Hammam Ben at UnchartedX continues to produce excellent videos concerning the Younger Dryas Cataclysm and related subjects. Just recently he posted this superbly produced review of religious and mythical information and how it perfectly matches the hard science of impacts. Warning: This stuff is heavy, and as Ben points out, it […]

Napier Paper

Dr. Bill Napier fingers fragmented comet in Younger Dryas and Bronze Age impacts

Folks, I am sorry to have been so scarce in recent months. Among other excuses for the inexcusable, the auto-mailer for subscribers to the site went down, and I felt I needed to repair it before posting. Fixing it turned into a mess which led to my continued procrastination. Much has happened in recent months […]

Protesteth too much...

Vance Holliday disguises rant as lecture

The bibliography of the subject alone refutes Vance Holliday’s absolute and categorical rejection of all evidence for the YDIH in a recent lecture. There are simply too many groups publishing too many papers for all of the evidence to be entirely rejected by anyone, even a persistent critic like Holliday. For gosh sake, the world’s […]

The Hiawatha Crater and Global Warming politics

Science communicators give tongue to cats

In addition to the recent history of the earth, its animals, and mankind, the Hiawatha Crater discovery may have something else to teach us. The Tusk finds the real-time sociological implications of the crater as fascinating and instructive as the feature itself. I’m obsessed by what the new information reveals about the motivations and perspective […]

Cosmic impact destroys lost city of the Levant in 1700 BC

DENVER — A superheated blast from the skies obliterated cities and farming settlements north of the Dead Sea around 3,700 years ago, preliminary findings suggest. Radiocarbon dating and unearthed minerals that instantly crystallized at high temperatures indicate that a massive airburst caused by a meteor that exploded in the atmosphere instantaneously destroyed civilization in a 25-kilometer-wide […]
