I'm pretty sure the explanation for that is because cosmic nucleotide dating implied the bottom of the GP is younger than the top. I had always figured it was a joke. Of course, considering where the organic samples were collected, i

It's on the island of Menorca. It looks like the ruts come out from beneath a deposit of sediment. Great observations in the OP, btw.

QuoteThanks for the heads up on that one. Much appreciated. Just lookin' out for my peeps, is all. No need to thank. QuoteI guess that what you have just gone to all the trouble to post is really a long winded way of saying that you have no proof of the Great Year being a cycle of approx. 26000 years. Hahaha, whoosh. "There are none so blind," and all that. I get it, lol. Also, do

QuoteNice to know you don't actually read anything I write. I read it. I had to dust off the ol' dictionary to look up 'recrudescence'.

Just about every astronomer, astrophysicist,and cosmologist in the world would disagree on that. Precession as an apparent celestial motion is no more theoretical than the annual or diurnal celestial motions. The only thing "theoretical"

QuoteDeep1 This article argues that 'silver bullet' theories about civilizational collapse are delusional and oversimplifications of history. Civilizations never collapse, but theocracies and monarchies or principalities or nation-states do. A civilizational collapse can rarely be pinned to climate change or a cataclysm, but more perhaps to a breakdown in political or social structure that are ca
