A NICKEL PICKLE The Problems of Building High-Tech From a Meteoroid Wreck by Bob Kobres Part D From the original on Bob Kobres’ site here. Uniformitarianism succeeded in displacing catastrophism as the acceptable approach to unraveling Earth’s past, largely because slow moving glaciers better explained the presence of displaced boulders. Catastrophists had surmised that…
Leroy Ellenberger Dave, As you probably know, the Sep/Oct Skeptical Inquirer (whose cover features Martin Gardner) contains letters by Clark Chapman and Paul Hilfinger, reacting to your May/Jun article on the claimed impact at the Younger Dryas boundary (also with a letter from Mark Bosslough commenting on his sidebar about scientists changing their minds,…
A NICKEL PICKLE The Problems of Building High-Tech From a Meteoroid Wreck by Bob Kobres Part C   The contemporary picture of pre-history has been pieced together with total disregard for the effects impact phenomena had on our ancestors. Obviously the image of our past will be much different when this newly discovered influence…
The Tusk recommends the blog Crater Hunter: A Catastrophe of Comets as another stop to study strange claims and the science that supports them.  I think it is authored by Dennis Cox(?), but regardless, the author is clearly a brave and dedicated soul — and the writing ain’t half bad. The more I learn about…
The excitement when this scientific paper was published in 2001 was old news to me, really. I had first heard from William Topping way back in 1998. He was interested in Carolina Bays. Terribly interested. So was another scientist he said, Dr. Richard Firestone. I hit the search on Alta Vista and lo and…
I was fortunate to attend the YDB session in San Francisco at the Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union.  With a young family and a growing business it is tough — and selfish —  to pull away to the West Coast to play scientist two weeks before Christmas.  But I did.  And I appreciate…
George A. Howard is an original proponent and widely cited avocational expert in the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. He has studied the globe changing, civilization starting impact for 25 years.  In 1998 George was contacted by William Topping and Richard Firestone, who saw a 1997 essay he published on the early web concerning the…
