Ancient airburst over Ohio

Background from Smithsonian Magazine Breakdown from Archeothoughts Erudite Tusk commentor Stuart Hamish below refers accurately to this Neuheuser and Neuheuser paper responding to Tankersley et al., as “hair splitting.” I’d agree. Stuart also includes some juicy tidbits about other modern impacts that are worth sharing. Incidentally, I plan to take Stuart up on his suggestion…

America's skeptic changes mind on #ydih

Michael Shermer, Founding Publisher of Skeptic Magazine, tweeted Graham Hancock an extraordinary note this week. Shermer announced that based on last week’s blockbuster Abu Hureyra paper he was persuaded to re-think his position on the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. What a welcome development in the long effort to win the hearts and minds of persistent critics of global cataclysm at…

The Sun and The Express I am still planning to post some commentary on the substance of the paper itself, but in the meantime I wanted make an observation concerning the lead author, Dr. Andrew Moore. Many followers of the YDIH publishing saga lament for good reason that the subject has not “gone mainstream.” Which, in the case of this profound hypothesis, would require the…

2019 AGU abstract supports Younger Dryas "exacerbated" by cosmic impact

Sharma, 2013 This week is “abstract reveal” week for the enormous annual conference of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) held each December (See Tusk at 2009 AGU). So each year around this time I search the AGU website for any coming presentations concerning the Younger Dryas and cosmic impact. Fall Meeting 2019 San Fran turned up an interesting hit. Mukul Sharma, a geochemistry…

NY Post Gizmodo Quartz Francis Thackeray This confirmation of a South African platinum layer from the Younger Dryas Impact was particularly welcome for several reasons.  First, it is another confirmation of evidence for  the impact in the Southern Hemisphere, following the Pilauco paper from Chile in March of this year. Second, the lead author, Francis Thackeray, is no light weight, as…

The Bos & Co

Late to the Party

An instructive video accompanies the paper I’m trying to get out of town for a beach weekend, but I’ve wanted to get this paper up for days. The newly prominent role of the Taurids among American space scientists, with the role of The Bos discussed in a recent Tusk post here, is peculiar but not unwelcome. Fortunately, and perhaps for sake of the authors’ sense of integrity, the…

Mucked Up

It’s hard to be cynical enough in this game. I noted today that “Science Communicators,” a recently discussed poorly adapting subspecies, have yet to mention this blockbuster paper in Nature Reports one year ago. Specifically, there is credible preliminary evidence contained by the bucketful that there was a catastrophe prior to the Younger Dryas Impact that rained Platinum rich…

Martin Sweatman, like The Bos, is a betting man. But in this instance I want his side of the wager. Today Sweatman published a masterpiece of original, rational statical analysis reporting a series of planetary catastrophes as recorded by our elders in ancient symbols in cave art and carved rock. The historic rejection of ancient animal art as symbolic of constellations has been destroyed with…
