Cosmic Summit speaker videos

With the Cosmic Summit close to a month away, I thought it would be fun to post a bit about a speaker or two. Dr. Andrew MT Moore and Ben van Kerkwyk are first up. Ben has been the tour leader for my trips to Egypt and recently Turkey. He is also an extraordinarily skilled YouTube science and data communicator. His three recent videos on scans he inspired of ‘pre-dynastic’ Egyptian…

What would the planet do without the tireless? I love how our subject draws in gifted obsessives from around the world. One example is Marc Young in Australia who compiled The Bib last year. Soon after The Bib was released, Dr. Martin Sweatman University of Edinburgh picked up and leveraged the easily available information.  In a incredible feat of “grinding it out,” Martin has worked…

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 Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis since 2007

I recently discovered an essay from Graham Hancock that manages to convey both the profound intellectual significance — and petty scholastic drama — of the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis since 2007. Hancock doesn’t note his good timing, but as he writes in 2017 it is the 10th anniversary of the Comet Research Group’s Acapulco AGU presentations introducing the YDIH. This…
