DB: Scott you are doing it again. You are totally ignoring what is presented. Here again is what the source you cited stated: George F. Dodwell your source said it was a GRADUAL change. Now you try to quote another source who claims it was rapid. yet the one man who did a systematic study says it was not rapid but gradual.
SC: No, Don. I am quoting Dodwell himself. Go to the source material, Don and not third party commentators and you will read this:
"The curve is therefore a certain and sure mathematical demonstration that in the year 2345 B.C., the earth’s axis was suddenly displaced by a major impact; and the curve shown in Figure 3 is a curve of the partial recovery of the earth to a state of equilibrium, at its normal inclination and conditions, as reached in 1850 A.D." - Source.
The TILT was SUDDEN - the RECOVERY was GRADUAL.
DB: If this is how the conversation is going to go with you ignoring rebuttals then please count me out.
SC: Well that's a shame that you are counting yourself out so soon, Don.
SC: "...no other proof other than..." So, yes - we have proof. Thank you.
DB: Present it please.
SC: Already did. Djoser's pyramid.
EDIT: To correct parenthesis.
