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. The new date of Monday, November 14th also helps place the launch at a more promising time, a day before a key appearance of author Graham Hancock on America’s most popular podcast: The Joe Rogan Experience.
The Tusk is hoping that Hancock, who we informed of the launch, will provide support for the fundraising appeal to further investigate cosmic impacts in human history, and perhaps give the effort a “plug” on the show — as they say in the ‘biz;)
For those unfamiliar with Hancock, he is a wildly popular author and speculative challenger to current human historical understandings. Like the Tusk and many others, Graham believes that people — not just dinosaurs — have been visited by planetary devastation from above, thousands of years in the past, not millions. The most interesting thing to me is that Hancock’s intellectual and publishing journey was completely unrelated to the forensic and journal efforts of the Comet Research Group. Yet ultimately the laboratory work of the Comet Research Group, and the popular, generalist approach of Hancock reached many (but not all) of the same conclusions.
Fortunately, Graham’s appeal is not limited to the written word. He has also secured a treasured place as a regular guest of the 3-Hour Joe Rogan Experience Podcast, previously described here by the Tusk. These episodes draw millions of intelligent, curious listeners from around he world. It is our humble prayer that after next week’s episode some of them will find their way to the Indiegogo appeal, the Comet Research Group website, the CRG Facebook page, the Youtube video — or perhaps even here at the Tusk.
