Hi Lee, Your post can be used to illustrate exactly what I was pointing out above. Now, before I continue, I just want to emphasise that I have taken no ill will from your post, and nor do I think that you are calling me (or my colleagues at the time) psychopaths, or psychological abusers. the following is simply to illustrate how unpleasantness can ignite within a discussion, and spread acr

It can indeed be done. We cannot control another's actions, but we can control our own actions and reactions. That is, just because someone has made a comment that is perceived as a personal attack, does not mean that one should respond in kind. We can be victims of our own egos all too quick to attack back, since when it comes to social interactions, attack is the best form of defence. If yo

To provide some information on the context of Aine's suspension. This last week, the moderators have been discussing the issue on the board. We have looked over past posts and tried to identify whom we thought were the main catalysts behind the general air of unpleasantness. We came to the consensus that Aine had played a role in her personal attacks against another member, by making defamator

Ok everyone, time to calm down. This post is not directed to any one member, but to all. It is coming up to Christmas, with the spirit of good will and all that jazz. The amount of personalisation and attacking one another on this forum in particular is getting beyond a joke, and you are all showing yourselves up. This has been a shocking of a year, with shifts in the geopolitical landsca

QuoteI have no interest in engaging with a misogynistic, emotionally stunted white supremacist who whines about being emasculated. Oh, yes, I know you, Pete. You're as transparent as glass. You need help, and for the sake of your son, I hope you get it. Not cool Kristin. Feel free not to engage with any member, but this comment is really pushing the limits. Jonny

Aeschylus, Mind how you tread! One could read into this post a passive aggressive insinuation of domestic abuse with respect to another member of GHMB. In case you have forgotten you were sanctioned previously regarding claims of domestic abuse by member of GHMB. Do not reply to this post. You may contact the moderators by email if you so feel inclined. Jonny

If you use Firefox, there is an add on called "Color that Site" which you can use to change the back ground colours. Playing around with this might make the colours easier on the eyes. I found inverting the background and foreground colours a quick way to make it a bit easier on teh eyes. I am sure with a bit more play you could approximate the old colour scheme. I have not played a

Hi Pete, I liked the old colour scheme too, but there were indeed complaints regarding it. Some people found the old version difficult on the eyes. At one point Luke was looking into trying to get a skin sorted for those who preferred the original colour scheme. I am not sure how successful this was, or how far along he got with it. Jonny

Hi Jonathan, I presume you are referring to the Tauraid stream when you are referring to the "asteroid belt". Note that this stream is distinct from what is considered the asteroid belt. The former is a debris stream from what is thought to be a hierarchy of disintegrations of a giant comet, and the latter is a region of space between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter populated by roc

Aeschylus, Your discourse in this sub-thread is out of order. I shouldnt even need to point out that insinuating another member engages in domestic violence is against the CoC. Even if you are being jovial, domestic violence is not a joke. I am also serving you a two week suspension, so you will have plenty of time to adjust your behaviour accordingly. Jonny

I would love to see the post where I say there is no singularities since I do not recall ever saying it. As far as I recall the only thing I have said on the matter is something along the lines of since we do not have a working theory of quantum gravity then it may be the case that singularities do not form. I.e. quantum effects may prevent singularity formation. This is not the same as saying

Hi Callan, Thanks for the link to the Supernova article. I had missed that news when it came out. has it anything to do with AD 1012 and/or 1014? I would say no. Those reports of things falling from the sky are too far removed from AD 1006. We now know that the ammonia spike in the GRIP ice core dated to "1014", is actually AD 1020. We also know that the GRIP Ammonia at &qu

Hi Callan, Indeed, when it comes to science one should keep an open mind to other reasonably likely possibilities. Take the cause of the 2354 BC tree ring event. In our paper we propose that there is a plethora of dated myths, with allusions to the sky, that seem to coincide with the Irish tree ring downturn, and thus the environmental downturn at this time may have had a cosmic origin.

Hi Callan, yes, indeed there are examples of such research, and my statement above is my own opinion, which of course may not be correct. However, it is important to distinguish a difference between not liking environmental determinism etc with accepting that extreme environmental events may have been the cause of a change in societal behaviour. One does not have to like something in order t

THi Carol, the traditional date for the death of St Patrick is AD 461, so his arrival in ireland would have been well before AD 540. that said, there were an awful lot of Irish saints in the 6th century! Jonny

Hi Ray, I think in some fields of research one will always have the suck in and smear effect, for example in archaeology which is often reliant upon radiocarbon dates with their inherent uncertainties, or in other geophysical dating techniques. However, great strides are being made in producing robust dating of the past. We have already seen that tree-rings have proved crucial for obtain

Hi Ivano, I was aware of Andy's work in the Articles section of this site. It is a nice synopsis of many of the events that have occurred in in the past. Unfortunately it hasnt survived well with time, as many of the links in the references now being dead.

Hi Audrey I will address each of your questions in point form 1) How has your paper been received, is the response positive? It is too early to say. When it was published in October it was within a two volume book of conference proceedings and only available in hard copy, not digitally. This was sent out to all conference contributers, so only a select few have a copy of it, and there

Hi Carol, I will try to address your questions in point form. But before I do, it is worth giving some credit to Mo Mendelkehr. In 2006 he published a three volume book called the 2300 BC event, where he provides evidence from archaeology and geophysics (Vol 1) and mythology (Vol 2 and 3). As we note in the paper, Mendelkher draws in a lot of information from often poorly temporally resolve
