“They indicate there was an extra-terrestrial event on Earth 12,900 years ago..”

Whether or not the finding of nano-diamonds along with impact material such as iridium and magnetic microspherules – as well as an abundance of diamonds in carbon spherules – confirms the hypothesis of meteor strikes in north America triggering the Younger Dryas “Big Freeze”, after a period of global warming, is less important, overall, than the implications for those who would rely on past fluctations in global temperature, not to mention the global conspiracy, as evidence for denying the anthropogenic influence today – unlike Professor James Hansen, who heads Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies. Unless, of course, our current NI Chief Scientist Environment Minister, who is still repudiating the scientific evidence, also adheres to the Ussher chronology.. Not that Sammy Wilson necessarily votes as he speaks.. From the NY Times report.

Climatologists believe that the direct cause of the 1,300-year cold spell, known as the Younger Dryas, was a sudden rush of fresh water from a giant lake in central Canada to the North Atlantic. Usually a surface current of warm water flows northward in the Atlantic toward Greenland and Europe, then cools and sinks, returning south in the deep ocean. But the fresh water, which is less dense, blocked the sinking of the cold, salty water in the North Atlantic, disrupting the currents. That sudden change in plumbing has long been known, but what caused it has never been satisfactorily explained.

    Thank you Peter (all be it your dates are a bit out) for further evidence of the effects of the Great Flood.

    95-word intro. Wow.

    New record.

    What has dates got to do with the possibility that the biblical record may have happened? Don’t pay attention to the creationist nutcases when they give dates to the beginning of the world, Adam, etc. They obviously haven’t read 1 Tim 1v4

    Could you write in English please?

    An extra-terrestrial event on Earth, Pete? Sounds a wee bit self-contradictory to me. The lads down the pub would never go for it.

    Is it perchance a scientific phenomenon in the sense that the doctrine of the Divine Trinity asserts a theological phenomenon?

  • Pete Baker

    I thought we had agreed, Gonzo, that you don’t critique my posts, and I won’t critique yours..

    Thankfully blogging means escape from the tyranny of the sub-editor. ;o)


    If you want something explained, just ask..


    The lads down the pub can go swing. ;op

    Now. Back to the topic..

  • Belfast Gonzo

    …whatever that topic is!

    I don’t remember any agreement, Pete, but perhaps you can post a link. Not so much a criticism, merely a note. To criticise this jaw-droppingly incomprehensible entry, I’d have to actually understand what you were on about.

    To me, it seems to defeat the purpose of blogging to be so obfuscatory. Since no-one apparently gets it, and the topic and point are so obscured by such poor style (and as I stray into critique, here used in the proper sense), don’t be too surprised if the response is not what you hoped for…

    It’s not tyranny – that’s the censor’s job – merely friendly advice to a fellow struggling writer. Take it, leave it, but I’d hesitate to admonish the poor reader for not being ‘clever’ enough to comprehend the literary equivalent of wading through treacle.
