In the next post, I will explain much more about Sujok and how it actually works, but given the huge amount of geomagnetic / emotional / spiritual 'stress' in the air at the moment, I just wanted to post this diagram up now, so you can try this at home and see if it helps.
The points marked on the palm (above) indicate the body's main glands in relation to the endocrine system. These are the parts of the body that get most fried-out and disrupted by geomagnetic storms, coronal mass ejections and space weather. When this stuff gets out of balance, all sorts of strange emotional states and physical issues can occur, and believe it or not, seed therapy can help us get through these tough times, and help us maintain more balance mentally and physically.
TRY THIS TONIGHT:
Get some clear adhesive tape from the pharmacy (that's designed to stick to skin). You can use plasters if you want, but it won't be as easy to work it out.
Then, take a WHOLE red lentil (split ones won't work) and stick a lentil on each of the spots marked on this diagram, before you go to sleep.
Make a note of any weird aches or pains you have right now, or any other strange emotional states and / or physical symptoms, and then see how you feel when you wake up tomorrow morning.
There's a lot more to say about SuJok - and you can read more about it HERE, in the meantime. But try this, and if it works for you, please drop me a quick note in the comments section.
The last few weeks, there’s been some huge disruptions in the solar weather, which are manifesting themselves in all sorts of unusual phenomena.
If you remember in THIS POST, we talked a lot about how flares in solar activity can lead to huge spikes in the number of people having:
Spaceweather.com and the students of Earth to Sky Calculus fly space weather balloons to the stratosphere over California. These balloons are equipped with radiation sensors that detect cosmic rays, a surprisingly "down to Earth" form of space weather.
On December 24, 2017, planet earth entered a high-speed solar wind phase - and we're seeing and feeling the results of all this additional cosmic energy in a number of different ways.
The last few weeks, I’ve been struck by the number of fatal pitbull attacks that are suddenly occurring around the world. Animals are also affected by ‘solar weather’, and the same mechanism that’s messing around with the delicate balance of our hormonal functioning and mental health is also affecting them.
The following link shows that a record 7 people were killed in the US alone by dog attacks in December 2017, and many more were mauled - and December isn't even over yet.
So that’s one way you can tell that the ‘solar weather’ is hitting some sort of extreme, even without having a NASA satellite at your disposal. But there’s more clues, too. A couple of days’ back, a young mother in one of my kid’s school had a fatal heart-attack whilst driving, and died.
'Standard science' blames the spike in strokes and heart attacks on things like cold snaps or heatwaves, as this article demonstrates:
But really? It's the SOLAR weather that's causing all these phenomena.
Other clues are that everyone I know seems to be feeling achey, in some weird way. This one has an unusual back-ache, that one an unusual headache, this one an unusual tooth, or gum-ache - and me?
The last few days my throat has been feeling really weiingrd, or to be more accurate, my thyroid gland has been feeling really weird, because solar weather affects the hormonal mechanism directly.
The following comes from Heather Carlini's website, who has been gather information from readers around the world about the impact increased cosmic rays and solar energy is having on their mental and physical health (sadly with the usual 'new age' cack attached. What can you do...)
Heather's research show far shows that:
We appear to be losing track of time easily. We lose words when we are speaking. The day simply disappears as time is moving quickly. Many are experiencing insomnia, and strange dreams. We are feeling immense power surges in the body followed by energy drops. There were numerous reports of nausea, and body aches and pains and dizziness. Many feel deep grief. Some feel as if they were walking on water (ungrounded). Others said that when they closed their eyes at night, everything is spinning.
So, what can we do about all this, especially as another big geomagnetic storm is forecast for January 1, 2018?
Apart from shipping your pitbull to the dog pound ASAP, I have another strange suggestion for trying to manage all this ‘over energy’ that’s affecting us via the solar weather: seed therapy.
Or to be more precise, whole red lentil therapy.
I know, I know, this sounds even more far-fetched than global warming being good for us, and whole continents sinking beneath the waves around 3,500 short years’ ago - but it really works!
And I’m going to try to give you a brief explanation of why that is. Seed therapy is one of the disciplines included in ‘Sujok’, a Korean form or acupressure that you can read more about HERE.
In a nutshell, a whole seed, or red lentil, contains a living energy that operates on the barely measurable, very subtle level that human bio-energetic levels also function at. When there is some sort of energetic imbalance going on in the human body - like when the solar weather is going nuts, for example - seeds can help to ‘ground’ the whole system, and bring the body back into some sort of energetic equilibrium very quickly.
This is a very basic description of what’s going on, and it’s on my ‘to do’ list to explain seed therapy properly at some point, God willing. But for now, here’s how seed therapy can help with your solar weather-induced aches and pains.
Sujok teaches that each part of a person’s anatomy is ‘mirrored’ in the hands and feet (and also other parts of the body, too, but that’s a post for another time.) It’s a similar idea to reflexology, but uses a different ‘map’ of the human body.
In the next post, I will explain exactly what those areas are, with a diagram, so you can start to stick your own seeds on the affected areas, and deal with the current ‘over energy’ that is making so many of us feel stressed and achy for no obvious reason.
Who hasn’t heard of the Himalayas? Who hasn’t heard of Mount Everest, that with a summit of 29,000 ft ranks as the highest mountain in the world?
The tops of these mountains are a frozen wasteland with precious few signs of life. It’s too high up for birds, even. But apparently, at some point in the past Mount Everest was home to marine animals, fish and mollusks, the remains of which are found in abundance in this area.
This also meant that the mighty peaks of the Himalayas had at some point lain under the sea - but as to when the Himalayas went from being a seabed to the highest mountain range in the world, that was a matter of guesswork.
Waving a finger in the air, the geologists decided that it must have been many, many millions of years’ ago, and definitely nothing that could have occurred within modern times….
This is the standard explanation that ‘geochronology’ likes to foist on an unsuspecting public (taken from the Encyclopedia Britannica):
“The collision of India and southern Asia began between 50 million and 40 million years ago, during the Eocene Epoch, and continues today. The collision produced two main geologic results. First, it began to block the westward-flowing Tethys seaway near the Equator, a process completed with the junction of Africa and Asia near present-day Iran roughly 16 million to 14 million years ago.
It all sounds so convincingly scientific, doesn’t it? Modern geochronology is adamant that no mountains popped out of the ground anytime recently, and certainly not within the timescale of modern man, i.e. the last 5-6000 years.
Yet the fossils being found in the mountains tell a very different story. In 1939, Swiss geologist Arnold Heim wrote in: The Throne of the Gods, an Account of the First Swiss Expedition to the Himalayas, that the sedimentary deposits found in this ‘ancient’ sea bottom that had now risen more than 5000 ft upwards contained Paleolithic fossils.
This comes from Wikipedia:
“The Paleolithic (or "Palaeolithic")/ˌpæliːəˈlɪθɪk/ age is a prehistoric period of human history distinguished by the development of the most primitive stone tools and covers roughly 95% of human technological prehistory. It extends from the earliest known use of stone tools, probably by Homo habilis initially, 2.6 million years ago, to the end of the Pleistocene around 10,000 BP.”
To be clear, ‘paleolithic’ means the stone age, the time when human beings used primarily stone and bone implements. Again, even according to modern geology’s own chronology, these dates don’t add up. On the one hand, they’re telling us that the Himalayas arose 40-50 million years ago, and on the other they’re saying that the fossils found at the top of the Himalayas, in the Kashmir region, date to between 2.6 million and 12,000 (sic) years ago.
Helmut de Terra, the explorer that discovered these elevated fossils in Kashmir wrote in: Studies on the Ice Age in India and Associated Human Cultures, 1939, that:
“The archaeological records prove that early Paleolithic man inhabited the adjoining plains”,
because he’d found an abundance of Paleolithic stone implements at settlements nearby.
But the rise of the Himalayas didn’t stop there. According to De Terra, the
“tilting of terraces and lacustrine beds” indicated a “continued uplift of the Himalayan tract” during the last phases of the Ice Age.”
To be clear, modern geochronology states that the Paleolithic age was ended by the last so-called ‘mini’ Ice Age. To put this in plain English, De Terra found that the Himalayas continued to rise even as little as 12,000 (sic) years ago!
Again, even this dating is based on the stone age implements that were found there - yet many primitive societies continued to live in the ‘stone age’ well into Victorian times, and even beyond, despite the standard scientific dating of 3.4 million - 2,500 years ago.
HOW IS SCIENCE COMING UP WITH THESE DATES?
While we’re on the whole dating subject, guess what? Yes, that’s right - stone age implements are typically dated using carbon 14 (which we already discussed in THIS post) and / or something called K-Ar dating, which measures the loss of radioactive argon isotopes. Here’s just one of the assumptions used when dating things with K-Ar:
“The sample must have remained a closed system since the event being dated. Thus, there should have been no loss or gain of 40K or 40 Ar*, other than by radioactive decay of 40K.
Again, go research this yourselves, but what they are basically telling you is that just like they assume that the amount of carbon has been stable in the earth’s atmosphere for eons, so has the amount or argon, but that they keep finding that this simply doesn’t pan out in practice, especially in areas of ‘complex geological history’ - i.e. where big upheavals have taken place.
If you go look at what they say about the Stone Age dating and theory itself, there are enormous holes all over the place, disagreements, and huge statements based solely on opinion and ‘belief’ - NOT facts (other than carbon 14 and potassium-argon dating…)
So what we’re left with factually is that the Himalayas arose in the stone age of man, and that
“The transition out of the Stone Age occurred between 6000 BCE and 2500 BCE for much of humanity living in North Africa and Eurasia.”
But - people living in the Middle East were already in the so-called Bronze Age, and even the so-called Iron Age at this time, while other communities continued to live in the ‘stone age’ well into modern Victorian times.
To return to the Himalayas, De Terra found polished stone implements from the ‘neolothic’ or new stone age in the loess (see definition below) at the top of the Himalayas. This suggests very strongly that the Himalayas arose between 15,000 BCE and 2000 BCE - according to modern science’s own dating!
The Neolithic (/ˌniːəˈlɪθɪk/ ( listen)) was a period in the development of human technology, beginning about 15,200 BC, according to the ASPRO chronology, in some parts of the Middle East, and later in other parts of the world and ending between 4500 and 2000 BC.
De Terra wasn’t the only one to come to this stunning conclusion. Other geologists including R Finsterwalder, Arnold Heim and August Gansser also came to the conclusion that the mountain ranges in Western China (next to Tibet) were of very recent age.
“The highest mountains in the world are also the youngest” wrote Heim and Gansser in 1939.
Almost 80 years’ later, modern geology is still telling us that the Himalayas arose ’40-50 million years’ ago’ - ignoring every scrap of evidence to the contrary, including the fact that stone age tools and Paleolithic fossils were found at the very top of these peaks.
If you look to the mountain ranges of the Andes, you’ll find a similar story. Close to Lake Titicaca on the border of Bolivia and Peru, in 1910 explorers found a massive city - built up a mountain some 12,500 ft high.
Writing in The Incas of Peru in 1910, Sir Clemens Markham said:
“Such a region is only capable of sustaining a scanty population of hardy mountaineers and laborers.”
Yet the people who built this city and lived there in their thousands not only did all that up a very high mountain where most crops don’t even ripen, but also somehow moved a bunch of massive stones up to this peak, to build the walls of their city.
To quote Velikovsky:
“Further investigation into the topography of the Andes and the fauna of Lake Titicaca, together with a chemical analysis of this lake and others on the same plateau established that the plateau was one time at sea level, or 12, 500 ft lower than it is today….
There are other ancient cities built with massive stones in the South American mountains that bear this out, including Ollantaytambo in Peru, and the Peruvian fortress / monastery at Ollantayparubo, which Bellamy described as:
“perche[d] upon a tiny plateau some 13,000 ft above sea level, in an uninhabitable region of precipices, chasms and gorges.”
The huge stones that built it must have been brought “from a considerable distance… down steep slopes, across swift and turbulent rivers, and up precipitous rockfaces which hardly allow a foothold.”
Aerial photographs of the Andes show the area is riddled with old settlements and agricultural terraces - at altitudes that today are only visited, briefly, by mountain climbers.
Clearly, many mountain chains in the world are very, very young, and only attained their heights in the last few thousand years, i.e. in the modern age of man.
We all know that the age of a strata of rock is determined by the fossils found within it. It follows that the older the rock is, the lower down it must be in the strata, because clearly, newer things accrue upon older things.
That’s what science, that’s what modern geology, teaches us and of course it sounds eminently sensible and correct.
It doesn’t actually reflect the reality of what’s really going on with the planet’s mountain ranges and rock formations. Writing in Our Mobile Earth, geologist Reginald Aldworth Daly revealed that:
“During the building of the Alps, gigantic slabs of rock, thousands of feet thick, hundreds of miles long, and tens of miles wide, were thrust up and then over, relatively to the rocks beneath…
If we go according to standard geological dating, the Alps in the Swiss canton of Glarus are a complete enigma. The lower strata have been dated to the Tertiary period (i.e. the age of mammals), which science dates as’ 65 million to 2.58 million years ago’; while their higher strata have been dated to the Permian period (preceding the age of reptiles), conventionally dated at between 299 to 251 million years ago; and the Jurassic period (the age of reptiles), dated conventionally at between 199.6 to 145.5 million years ago.
How on earth did rock stratas dated to 65 million years ago (at it’s oldest) come to be lying on top of rock dated 145 million years ago (at its oldest)? There are two options: either, the dating of rock according to the fossils they contain is just plain wrong, OR the mountains were actually physically shifted, intact, into a new location.
Let’s be clear that geologists - and anyone with any regard whatsoever for evolution - could never accept the first option, even if was clear as day. So, even in the scientific world, the fantastic idea that a number of older mountains were somehow physically moved from one location, and set atop more recent mountains is the SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY’S own view of what most have occurred.
“The problem of mountain-making is a vexing one,” concurred Harvard Professor FK Mather, writing in Science in 1942. “Many [mountains] are composed of tangentially compressed and overthrust rocks that indicate scores of miles of circumferential shortening in the Earth’s crust. Radial shrinkage is woefully inadequate to cause the observed amount of horizontal compression…Geologists have not found a satisfactory escape from this dilemma.”
Before we continue with the fascinating subject of ‘moving mountains’, let’s just pause a moment to go back to the authentic Jewish sources on the subject of creating and moving mountains, where we find the following (You can find a much more detailed discussion of this over on Emunaroma, HERE.)
Midrash Mechilta, Yitro, haChodesh 4:
Lets’ be clear that we’re not just talking about one weird rock formation here; the examples of massive mountains moving tens and even hundreds of miles across land occur in a great many places in the world, including:
To name but a few. All the mountains weigh billions of tons. Are the geologists really expecting us to believe that some friction between tectonic plates or an earthquake - even a major earthquake - catapulted all these mountains a hundred miles away?
To quote Velikovsky: “No force acting from inside the earth, puffing inward or pushing outward, could have created these overthrusts. Only twisting could have produced them. It could hardly have occurred if the rotation and revolution of our planet had never been disturbed.”
Here's what plasma physicist James McCanney has to say about the subject:
 George McCready Price, writing in Common-sense Geology, 1922
“During the close passage of a large comet, the ‘gravitational wave’ is sufficient to move waves of land and rock at speeds in excess of a thousand miles per hour, across land.”
But the mountain mystery doesn’t end there.
Stone and bone artefacts used by ‘Stone Age Man’ - conventionally dated to the Pleistocene Era, or Ice Age - were found at the very top of the Alps, in a number of caverns. Why would Stone Age Man chose to make his home at the top of a freezing cold, 8,000 foot high mountain?
Amazing as it sounds, there is an abundance of evidence to show that the Alps and other mountains, arose and ended up in their present locations within the last few thousand years - well within the era of modern man.
“Mountain uplifts amounting to many thousands of feet have occurred within the Pleistocene epoch [Ice Age] itself,” explained Professor Flint, in Glacial Geology and the Pleistocene Epoch. And this happened in: “the Cordillerian mountain system in both North and South America, the Alps-Caucausus-Central Asian system, and many others.”
But really, we’re not even talking about tens of thousands of years here, we’re talking about a time when historical records were being kept by the human race, and writing had been developed, i.e. the last 5-6000 years.
Writing about the Asian mountains in Research in Asia II, explorer Bailey Willis said: “The great mountain chains challenge credulity by their extreme youth.”
In the next post, we’ll explore in more detail how the geological data and fossil evidence from mountain ranges across the world, including the towering peak of Mount Everest itself, poses one of the single biggest challenges to modern science and its ‘enlightened’ geologists’ view of how and when the world came about.
fire and brimstone hit hollywood the same time it hit sodom and gomorrah - the rancho la brea tar pits
While it’s sadly not unusual to hear that there are a bunch of fossilized, dangerous animals roaming around Hollywood, the creatures I’m going to introduce you to in this post mostly had four legs, and were found in a massive asphalt pit in the LA neighborhood of Rancho La Brea.
Before we get into this post - which I have a feeling is going to be one of my favorites on this subject - let me first introduce you to a definition of ‘bitumen’, as we’re going to be hearing a lot about this substance.
Here’s how it’s defined in American by Colliers:
Sometimes, bitumen is also called ‘tar’ (as in ‘tarmac’), and it’s thick, black, sticky stuff that’s actually high flammable.
Over 140 years’ ago, industrialists noticed that naturally-forming bitumen, or tar, or asphalt was oozing out of the ground at a place called Rancho La Brea, to the west of what was then the nascent city of Los Angeles, but which today butts right up against Hollywood and other LA suburbs.
Very quickly, they started mining this asphalt and shipping thousands of tons of it off to San Francisco, to pave the roads and waterproof the roofs. But a fortune in tarmac is not all they found in Rancho La Brea - they also discovered an absolutely enormous collection of dead animal remains, many of which were perfectly preserved in the black, sticky ooze.
Before we continue, let me give you the ‘official’ version of how all these animals - which included more than 700 sabre toothed tigers, wolves bisons, horses, mammoths, and also a number of birds, including peacocks - came to be in the Rancho La Brea tarpits, courtesy Wikipedia:
“This seepage has been happening for tens of thousands of years [sic]. From time to time, the asphalt would form a deposit thick enough to trap animals, and the surface would be covered with layers of water, dust, or leaves. Animals would wander in, become trapped, and eventually die. Predators would enter to eat the trapped animals and also become stuck.
Got that? Over ‘thousands’ of years, thousands of animals somehow wondered into these tar pits, get stuck, eventually die, and then hundreds of sabre tooth tigers and wolves would gather round to feast on the emaciated skeleton of whatever it was that got trapped, also then getting trapped and dying in the tar pits.
Oh yes, and radiocarbon dating tells us that all this happened around 38,000 years ago…
Now, are you ready for the real version of events?
THREE MASSIVE HOLES IN THEORY
The first hole in the theory is simply the sheer number of animal remains that were recovered from the pit. The skulls of wolves and sabre-toothed tigers were being recovered at the rate of 20 per square yard.
That’s an awful lot of carnivores fighting over a veal chop….
And that’s another problem with the theory, because overwhelmingly, the pit contained the remains of carnivores, and not herbivores.
But the most telling problem with this theory is that nearly all the skeletons recovered from Rancho La Brea - greatly to the surprise of the scientists working there - were smashed to pieces.
Writing in Fossils, Lull averred that the bones were ‘splendidly preserved’ in the hardened asphalt, but another chap called Price, writing in The New Geology, elaborated that they were
‘broken, mashed, contorted and mixed in a most heterogenous mass, such as could never have resulted from the chance trapping and burial of a few stragglers.”
So, if they didn’t ‘fall in’ to the bitumen, how did these animals come to be preserved in it - in their thousands - but with their bodies all smashed to pieces?
CRUDE OIL AND COMETS
When the volatile elements evaporate out of crude oil, that’s when you get asphalt, tar, and other bituminous substances.
Here’s the thing about bitumen: it can also fall from the sky.
In fact, the modern plasma scientist James McCanney writes at length about this subject, and explains that instead of petroleum deposits somehow forming from ‘millions’ of years’ of decomposing ancient forests (and to this day, no-one has managed to explain how so many of these ‘ancient forests’ apparently grew two miles under oceanic seabeds…) petroleum is often present as part of the chemical mix contained in the ‘tail’ of a comet.
In the Torah’s account of Sodom and Gomorrah, five cities are described as being wiped out by ‘sulfur and fire’ raining down, ‘out of heaven’. The Jewish commentator Sforno explains that this sulfur and fire weren’t natural, ‘earthly’ phenomena, but something extra-terrestrial. I.e. - they fell on the planet from outer space.
Sulfur is a key component of crude oil, the stuff that is refined to make the petroleum we use to power our cars, amongst other things. Here’s what the petroleum.co.uk website says about the sulfur content of crude oil:
The Torah tells us very clearly that sulfur-containing crude oil ‘rained’ out of the sky, as the plain where the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah are located were overturned, and then we’re told that the whole place appeared to be ‘smoking’ like a lime kiln - and all this happened at the time of Abraham the Patriarch, 2048 in the Hebrew calendar, or 3,729 years ago, at the time of writing.
The following comes from THIS article on Aish.com:
"Fire and brimstone" is a common expression used to describe the sermon of an overzealous preacher, but exactly what is brimstone? The Hebrew word for brimstone in the Biblical verse is gafrit and is usually understood to mean sulfur. The Targum Yonathan ben Uziel translates the word into Aramaic as kivraitah.
HOW THE HYDROCARBONS APPEARED ON THE SCENE
So, we know bitumen and sulfur were falling on the earth around the Dead Sea area just under 4,000 years’ ago, i.e. well within modern human history, as these archeological remains show.
But while the geologists working at the Dead Sea like to say that ‘flammable hydrocarbons’ got spewed up into the air by some sort of volcanic activity from below, what REALLY happened is that these ‘flammable hydrocarbons’ rained down from above, as part of a comet-induced catastrophe of epic proportions.
Let’s go back to Rancho La Brea, and Velikovsky’s explanation of what occurred:
“Could it be that at this particular spot, large herds of wild beasts, most carnivorous, were overwhelmed by falling gravel, tempests, tides and raining bitumen? Similar finds in asphalt have been unearthed in two other places in California, at Carpinteria and McKittrick.”
One last thing to note is that human remains were also found in the La Brea tar pit, and that human was a ‘modern’ human, i.e. one of us. This stuff didn’t happen 38,000 years’ ago, as claimed, it happened less than 4,000 years’ ago.
A WORD ON HOLLYWOOD
When I started writing this post, I didn’t know that Rancho La Brea was located in the area of Hollywood (or rather, the other way around.)
In recent weeks, the comparisons between the behavior and morals of Hollywood and the behavior and morals of the biblical Sodom and Gomorrah have been ever-more starker. So it’s very interesting to note that probably at the same time that Sodom and Gomorrah were being wiped off the map by a Divine visitation of ‘fire and brimstone’, the exact same thing appeared to be happening on the other side of the globe, at the future location of Hollywood.
It certainly makes a person think.
Victorian researchers discovered a curious thing in the town of Plymouth, on the English Channel. Clefts in the limestone rocks there were packed with the bones of horses, polar bears, mammoths, hippopotami, rhinoceroses and bison.
To quote Joseph Prestwich, a geology professor at Oxford who was considered to the pre-eminent expert about the geology of the ice age in England, and who wrote something verbosely titled: On certain phenomena belonging to the close of the last geological period and on their bearing upon the tradition of the flood, in 1885, these bones were:
“broken into innumerable fragments. No skeleton is found entire. The separate bones, in fact, have been dispersed in the most irregular manner and without any bearing to their relative position in the skeleton. Neither do they show wear, nor have they been gnawed by beasts of prey, though they occur with the bones of hyena, wolf, bear and lion.”
This perplexing phenomenon was also turning up in coastal rock formations in Devonshire, and also in Pembrokeshire, Wales. Prestwich wondered in astonishment why none of these skeletons were whole, why they weren’t weathered, and why none of the bones had been gnawed by other animals.
HOW DID ALL THESE ANIMALS GET CRUSHED TO DEATH SO QUICKLY?
The animals couldn’t have just somehow fallen, alive, into these crevices. “The mere fall [would not] have been sufficient to have caused the extensive breakage the bones have undergone,” mused Prestwich.
And this wasn’t just something he was seeing in the British Isles, either. The valleys around Paris, and the tops of a number of isolated hills in France also contained a treasure trove of crushed and mangled animal bones.
Prestwich described ‘one very striking example’ in Burgundy, a 1430 ft high hill called Mont Genay, ‘capped with a BRECCIA that contained the bones of reindeers, horses and mammoths, to name but a few.
Breccia ( /ˈbrɛtʃiə/ or /ˈbrɛʃiə/) is a rock composed of broken fragments of minerals or rock cemented together by a fine-grained matrix that can be similar to or different from the composition of the fragments.
On another French Hill called Mont de Sautenay, located between Dijon and Lyons, French Professor Albert Gaudry found another fissure filled with animal bones. “Why should so many wolves, bears, horses and oxen have ascended a hill isolated on all sides?” Professor Gaudry wanted to know.
Prestwich was also puzzled by the fact that none of the bones showed any evidence of having been mauled by beasts of prey, or eaten by people. He wrote: “Nevertheless, the remains of wolf were particularly abundant, together with those of cave lion, bear, rhinoceros, horse, ox and deer. It is not possible to suppose that animals of such different natures, and of such different habitats, would in life ever have been together.”
Yet, their remains showed they had certainly died together.
But what had caused their death? Prestwich conjectured that: “we may suppose all these animals had fled [there] to escape the rising waters.”
The same story was told again and again, as animal bones poured out of crevices on the British Isles, the French Mediterranean coast, on Corsica, Sardinia and Sicily and also the Rock of Gibraltar.
“The bones are most likely broken into thousands of fragments - none are worn or rolled, nor any of them gnawed, though so many carnivores then lived on the rock,” mused Prestwich. “A great and common danger, such as a great flood, alone, could have driven together the animals of the plains and of the crags and caves.”
When examining the ‘extraordinary quantity’ of hippopotamus bones that were found in the hills of Palermo, Sicily, Prestwich wrote:
“How could this bone breccia have been accumulated? No predaceous animals could have brought together and left such a collection of bones….The extremely fresh condition of the bones, proved by the retention of so large a proportion of animal matter show that the event was geologically, comparatively recent…the fact that animals of all ages were involved in the catastrophe” showed that it was “sudden”.
But what was the ‘catastrophe’ that could have caused such widespread destruction of animal life, so suddenly and violently? Prestwich believed it was some sort of enormous flood, or deluge.
“The animals in the plain of Palermo naturally retreated, as the waters advanced, deeper in the ampitheatre of hills…the animals must have thronged together in vast multitudes, crushing into the more accessible caves, and swarming over the ground at their entrance, until overtaken by the waters and destroyed…Rocky debris and large blocks from the sides of the hills were hurled down by the current of water, crushing and smashing the bones.”
THIS 'DELUGE' HAPPENED IN MODERN TIMES
And when did this happen? Not millions and billions of years ago, but in recent times, within the purview of modern man. Prestwich stated that it was “impossible to account for the specific geological phenomena…by any agency of which our time has offered us experience…The agency, whatever it was, must have acted with sufficient violence to smash the bones…Nor could this have been the work of a long time, for the entombed bones, though much broken, are singularly fresh…Certain communities of early man must have suffered in the general catastrophe.”
Let’s just pause here to remind ourselves that one of the two foundations of radiocarbon dating, of which so many of the claims about the ‘proven antiquity’ of the world rest, is that the amount of water in the oceans of the world should have remained relatively stable, to provide a fixed benchmark for the amount of time it takes radiocarbon to decay.
Here is clear, incontrovertible proof that THIS SIMPLY HASN’T BEEN THE CASE! And we’re talking about modern times, when our ancestors were walking around.
Prestwich - who again, was a professor of geology at Oxford University and one of the most well-respected geologists in academic circles - was of the view that something had occurred, within modern times, to cause the European continent to sink beneath the waves, to a depth of as much as 1000 ft, in some places, before the continent was elevated again.
He suggested that the time when this occurred - based on the geologic date he was encountering - was when Egypt was entering the Bronze Age (starting 3200 BCE), and Europe was entering the Neolithic Age - i.e. around a maximum of 5,200 years ago.
When does the Torah tell us Noah’s flood happened? In the Hebrew year of 1656, or around 4100 years ago - bang smack in the middle of the Bronze Age. (As a side note, the Midrash also says that the world was also partially flooded in the time of Enosh, too, and also at the time of the dispersion, i.e. after the tower of Babel was being built, so ginormous earth-changing floods are not an usual feature of the last few thousand years.)
THE CROMER FOREST-BED
There’s a forest bed in Cromer, Norfolk that kind of sums up the problem the British Isles poses to geology.
The deepest layer of this ‘forest bed’, as the name suggests, is a stretch of ground densely covered with tree stumps, often with interlocking roots, and mostly in the upright position. In the midst of this forest past, bones from sabre-toothed tigers, bears, straight-tusked elephants, rhinoceros, bison, plus glutton and musk ox (two species exclusively found in much colder, Northern climates) were all found mixed together.
How did a Tropics-loving elephant and an artic-loving musk ox come to be in the same patch of Norfolk forest at the same time, and to die there? What’s more, all the plants reclaimed from the forest bed showed that the climate and geographical conditions were ‘very similar to those of Norfolk at the present day’ (W. Wright, writing in the Quaternary Ice Age 1937).
The next layer above the forest bed in Cromer contained artic plants ‘such as to indicate a lowering of temperature of about 20°’ (Ibid). Then, there’s a marine bed which includes creatures that required a temperate climate.
How did all these various creatures and plants from across the globe wind up togehter in a forest bed in Norfolk?
Let’s quote Velikovsky:
“It would appear that this agglomeration was brought together by a moving force that rushed overland, left in its wake marine sand deep-water creatures, swept animals and trees from the south to the north, and then, turning from the polar regions back towards the warm regions, mixed its burden of arctic plants and animals in the same sediment where it had left those from the south.”
To put this into plainer English, the UK was hit by at least one massive tsunami, plus one defacto ‘ice age’ - which quickly disappeared as fast as it came - within the last few thousand years.
Geology Professor R.F. Flint, from Yale summed it up with admirable reserve when he said: “All in all, British glacial stratigraphic research has encountered exceptional difficulties.”
But those problems were by no means limited to the UK.
In the next post, we’ll see how these strange groupings of crushed animal remains were also found in many other places in the world too, not least the good ol’ USA.
In 1840, a young Swiss naturalist called Louis Agassiz published his new theory of ‘ice ages’, which was based on his observation of the glaciers in the Alps, which could advance or retreat a few feet a year.
Each advance of the glacial ice sheet would shove loose rocks to the side, forming ‘lateral moraines’, while those rocks pushed out in front formed ‘terminal moraines’. When the ice subsequently melted and retreated, these stone ‘moraines’ would - according to Agassiz - clearly show where the ice sheet had reached to, before retreating.
Writing in Etudes sur les glaciers, Agassiz stated:
“The surface of Europe, previously adorned with tropical vegetation and populated by herds of huge elephants, enormous hippopotami, and gigantic carnivore, was suddenly buried under a vast mantle of ice, covering plains, lakes, seas and plateaus.”
ICE AGES HAPPEN OVERNIGHT, NOT OVER A MILLION YEARS
But while modern science, with its axiomatic belief in the interminably slow pace of evolution, immediately rushed to state that these ice ages lasted for many hundreds of thousands, and even millions, of years, Agassiz’ view was that they were catastrophic events: they took the world by surprise, began instantly, and lasted no more than a couple of centuries.
In that same work, Agassiz stated that these ‘mini ice ages’ came to an end when the ignaeous (i.e. volcanic, made of magma) interior of the earth began to heat up again, resulting in a great deal of seismographic activity, and a general ‘warming up’ of the atmosphere as volcanoes belched forth their fire, and new mountain ranges occurred literally overnight.
In Agassiz’ view, the Western Alps were younger than the frozen corpses of the mammoths that were still being dug out - and eaten - in Siberia.
While the proto-evolutionists, with the avowed atheist Charles Lyell at their head, rushed to adopt whichever parts of the ice age theory suited them, they discounted Agassiz assertion that ice ages came about due to catastrophic events, and were relatively short lived affairs.
Lyell conjured up a million year span for what Agassiz had termed the ‘Great Ice Age’ that he estimated had occurred between the Tertiary and Recent period (with absolutely no scientific evidence to back this up), happily claimed that these continental ice sheets were responsible for all those otherwise disturbing erratic boulders being found all over the place, and the evolutionary bandwagon rolled on.
According to Lyell et al, this new ‘ice age’ theory explained how 10,000 ton erratic boulders that clearly hadn’t originated locally had come to be found at the top of cliffs, and across oceans many thousands of miles away: the continental ice sheet had ‘pushed’ them there.
YOU NEED MOUNTAINS TO GET GLACIERS...
But not everyone was convinced.
One of the leading antagonists to theory of evolution, and to Lyell’s explanation of how erratic boulders had somehow been ‘pushed’ up mountains thousands of miles away by continental ice sheets was a man called Roderick Murchison, another leading British geologist and member of the Geological Society who was actually knighted for his contributions to the field.
In 1845, after Murchison had spent many months observing the erratic boulders flung all over the great plains of the Russian empire, Murchison wrote:
“Seeing that there are no mountains whatever from which a glacier can ever have been propelled in southern Sweden, Finland, or north-eastern Russian, and yet these regions are powerfully abraded, scored and polished” -
Something other than a slow-moving continental ice sheet must have caused these phenomena.
Murchison believed that the ‘something’ in question was probably some sort of huge oceanic eruption, or enormous tidal wave, that had perhaps been repeated on more than one occasions.
Again, let’s just pause to make the point that while we do see that ice sheets in the polar regions of the world expand and contract, these small, cyclical incursions and retractions have never been proven to have achieved even a fraction of the actions in the world that the evolutionists have attributed to them.
Just as evolutionists like to argue that ‘micro’ evolution - where a particular plant, organism or animal can and does adapt to its environment in small ways over time - automatically ‘proves’ that amoebas turned into human beings, the same enormous -and completely unproven - jumps in logic are also required for the modern ‘scientific’ approach to ice ages.
Let’s return to 1865, 25 years after Agassiz had published his ‘ice age’ theory to wide acclaim, where the now famous, senior naturalist was suddenly presented with a huge challenge to his theory.
HOW DID GLACIERS MAKE IT DOWN TO EQUATORIAL BRAZIL AND AFRICA, THE HOTTEST PLACES IN THE WORLD?
On a trip to equatorial Brazil, Agassiz noticed that all the things that he’d stated were due to drifting continental sheets, like drift accumulations, scratched rocks erratic boulders, polished stones and fluted valleys, were staring him in the face in one of the very hottest tropical regions of the world.
Agassiz’ woes multiplied, as more reports came in from equatorial Africa showing the same thing, and even more perplexingly, the marks in Africa and Madagascar appeared to show that if an ice sheet had caused them, this ice sheet had spread up from the equator to cover the continent, i.e. in precisely the wrong direction.
These remnants of ice ages past were also found in India, and again seemed to have spread from the equator up across the foothills of the Himalayas, and not the other way around.
Never people to let the facts get in the way of a good (God-less…) theory, the evolutionists did what they always do when faced with uncomfortable information they couldn’t begin to explain: they banished it millions of years into the past.
They decided there must have a number of other ice ages, millions of years ago, in the so-called Permian Age. Still, some rumblings of unhappy conscience still surfaced in the scientific community.
Writing in 'The Origin and History of the Earth’ in 1937, R.T Chamberlin said:
“Some of these huge ice sheets advanced even into the tropics, where their deposits of glacier-borne debris, hundreds of feet in thickness, amaze the geologists who see them. No satisfactory explanation has yet been offered for the extent and location of these extraordinary glaciers… Glaciers, almost unbelievable because of their location and size, certainly didn’t form in deserts.”
The ‘satisfactory explanation’ that would and did explain all these strange markings and other phenomena is that the African, South American and Indian continents had been inundated, on repeated occasions, by catastrophic tidal waves and flood waters that carried many millions and billions of tons of debris, rock, and vegetation before it.
But as that explanation didn’t ‘fit’ with the theory of evolution - despite being a perfect ‘fit’ for the evidence at hand - it wasn’t even considered by the ‘modern’ scientific community.
THE ONE PLACE THE ICE AGE DIDN’T GET TO WAS THE NORTH POLE
Other anomalies also started to accrue to the Ice Age theory, as the 19th century wore on. While Victorian geologists were detecting signs of ice ages throughout the baking hot heat of Africa and the Tropics, strangely, they couldn’t find any trace of them in places like Greenland, the Arctic Circle and Siberia.
Writing in Science in 1942, R.F. Griggs stated:
“The Islands of the Arctic Archipelago were never glaciated. Neither was the interior of Alaska.”
James D. Dana, an American geologist, also noted this bizarre fact, writing:
“It is a remarkable fact that no ice mass covered the low lands of northern Siberia and more than those of Alaska.”
Stranger still, Swiss scientist O.Heer found the fossilized remains of magnolia trees and fig trees whilst examining the plant fossils found in the Arctic region, during the 1860s, which he documented in his work called Flora Arctica Fossilis, published in 1868.
To quote Velikovsky:
“Forests of exotic trees and groves of juicy, subtropical plants grew in a land that lies deep in the cold Arctic and is immersed yearly in a continuous polar night of six months’ duration.”
And these wasn’t the only strange fossils that Heer was digging up in the Arctic circle. In Spitsbergen, in the Arctic Ocean, he found pines, cypresses, elms, hazels - and even, the fossilized remains of water lilies.
Spitsbergen also disgorged a bed of coal, 30 feet thick, which bore silent witness to the fact that the area must have luxuriantly and abundantly forested, at some point in its past. In 1882, Archibald Geikie neatly summed up the conundrum in his Textbook of Geology:
“When we remember that this vegetation grew luxuriantly within 8° 15’ of the North Pole, in a region which is in darkness for half of the year, and is now almost continuously buried under snow and ice, we can realize the difficulty of the problem in the distribution of the climate which these facts present to the geologist.”
If that wasn’t bad enough, vast coral reefs were also found in Spitzbergen, as well as around Greenland, Alaska and Northern Canada, now completely covered with snow and ice.
Corals only grow in the most temperate climates in the world. It’s out of the question that coral reefs would grow in a cool area of the world, let alone one where it’s permanent night for six months of the year and nearly always frozen.
How does evolution explain Spitsbergen?
It can’t. So the evolutionists pull their favorite stunt, and simply push the problem off to many millions, and even billions ago into the past. What can’t be explained by scientific rigor can be banished by the passage of time.
Yet there is an explanation, one that has been brought down in authentic Jewish sources over the last 5,000 years, and also hinted at by modern science itself.
Compare this description found in ‘The Mysteries of Creation’, By Rabbi Dovid Brown, which talks about ‘World Number 3’ that existed within the last 5777 years, and lasted between the time of Enosh to Noah’s flood:
“Sforno (Parshat Noach 8:22) explains that:
“So long as the axis of rotation remains in nearly its present position relative to the plane of the earth’s orbit around the sun, the outer limit of the atmosphere in tropical regions must receive more of the sun’s heat than the middle latitudes, and the middle latitudes more than the polar regions. This is an invariable law…It is much more difficult to think of a cause which will raise the temperature of polar regions by some 30° F, or more, while leaving that of equatorial regions almost unchanged” - CEP Brooks, Climate through the Ages, 1949
SUMMING UP THIS SECTION:
Evolution and ‘modern’ science has no explanation for how equatorial regions were apparently covered by icy glaciers in the past while the Arctic and Siberia apparently weren’t; or why tropical plants like magnolias and water lilies once grew in the frozen wasteland of Greenland, or how luxurious forests once grew in the heart of the permanently frozen Arctic circle.
By contrast, authentic Jewish sources and commentators have been accurately discussing these matters for thousands of years.
It’s clear that the planet’s axis of rotation has shifted over the last few thousand years, as clearly set out by these authentic Jewish sources.
As to HOW this happened in alignment with laws of nature, we will get to that part of the puzzle in due course. Before then, there’s still a lot more scientific evidence that I want to present to you, first.
One of the major 'foundations' of modern science is the axiomatic belief that the world has continued on, unchanging, for billions of years, and that all processes on earth - from ice ages, to mountain ranges forming, to so-called 'evolution' - all took billions and billions of years to occur.
As this is poppycock, there is ABSOLUTELY NO scientific proof to back up this belief in the principle of 'uniformity', to give it its proper scientific name. But there is tons and tons of evidence that points in exactly the opposite direction, i.e. that massive changes to the earth have occurred within the last 6,000 years or so, and that these changes have been swift and instantaneous.
Read on to see how modern science has been ignoring the evidence that argues AGAINST evolution and the principle of uniformity, for well over 150 years....
In 1940, F. Rainey from the University of Alaska described a curious scene unfolding along the banks of the Tanana River gold rush occurring at that time:
“Wide cuts, often several miles in length and sometimes as much as 140 ft in depth are now being sluiced out along stream valleys tributary to the Tanana in the Fairbanks District. In order to reach gold-bearing gravel bed and overburden of frozen silt or ‘muck’ is removed with hydraulic giants. This ‘muck’ contains enormous numbers of frozen bones of extinct animals such as the mammoth, mastodon, super-bison and horse.”
All these animals were shown to have died in recent times, measured in a few thousands, and not millions of years, even according to standard Scientific dating methods. Rainey found worked flints in this ‘muck’, including spear points that were found in situ stabbed through the jaw of a lion, or the tusk of a mammoth. He concluded that: “men were contemporary with extinct animals in Alaska.”
F.C. Hibben from the University of Mexico takes up the story:
“Although the formation of the deposits of muck is not clear, there is ample evidence that at least portions of this material were deposited under catastrophic conditions. Mammal remains are for the most part dismembered and disarticulated, even though some fragments yet retain, in their frozen state, portions of ligaments, skin, hair and flesh. Twisted and torn trees are piled in splintered masses… At least four considerable layers of volcanic ash may be traced in these deposits, although they are extremely warped and distorted.”
Clearly, whatever killed and dismembered millions of these animals, and uprooted and splintered millions of trees at the same time, was not a ‘gentle accretion of mud’, as the evolutionists would have us believe - and all this happened just a few thousand years ago, and was witnessed by human beings.
The Liakhov Islands are located 600 miles inside the Polar Circle, to the north of Siberia. Liakhov reported to his sovereign, Russia’s Catherine II that: “Such was the enormous quantity of mammoths’ remains that it seemed that the island was actually composed of the bones and tusks of elephants, cemented together by icy sand.”
The Islands of New Siberia were discovered in 1805-6, and were similarly found to be packed full of the remains of creatures who thrive in hot climates: “The soil of these desolate islands is absolutely packed full of the bones of elephants and rhinoceroses in astonishing numbers.”
How did millions of sun-loving elephants and rhinoceroses meet their death, and get deep-frozen, in Siberia? Some of these creatures were recovered with their eyeballs still intact: they were flash frozen in a matter of hours after dying.
Geologist geologist J.D. Dana wrote about this discovery:
“The encasing in ice of huge elephants, and the perfect preservation of the flesh, shows that the cold finally became suddenly extreme, as of a single winter’s night, and knew no relenting afterward.”
Writing in 1910, a British researcher called Whitley marveled that: “neither trees, nor shrubs, not bushes, exist… and yet the bones of elephants, rhinoceroses, buffaloes and horses are found in this icy wilderness in numbers which defy all calculation.”
But that wasn’t the only mystery posed by the New Siberian Islands. Explorers also found a number of what they termed ‘wood hills’, which ranged between 250-300 ft high, and contained the petrified trunks of millions of uprooted trees, cemented together by frozen sand, and layered with millions of splintered and crushed animal skeletons.
In 1848, German scientist G.A. Erman wrote:
“On the summit of the hills, they [the tree trunks] lie flung one upon another in the wildest disorder, forced upright in spite of gravitation, and with their tops broken off or crush, as if they had been thrown with great violence from the south on a bank, and there heaped up.”
Immanuel Velikovsky explains how this occurred:
“A hurricane, apparently, uprooted the trees of Siberia and flung them to the extreme North; mountainous waves of the ocean piled them in huge hills, and some agent of a bituminous nature transformed them into charcoal, either before or after they were deposited and cemented in drifted masses of sand that became baked in sandstone.”
But what could batter, drown, burn and then bake together such masses of uprooted forests and animals, and do it so quickly that these remains would freeze perfectly solid in just a few hours?
Evolution has no answer for this. But there is a natural explanation that fits exactly with what we’ve been discussing on this blog and over on Emunaroma, about how the earth was really formed, and when.
‘Erratic boulders’ is the name given to rocks that have a different formation, or composition, from the places where they are found. For example, the erratic boulder called ‘Pierre a Martin’ measures more than 10,000 cubic feet, and is to be found on the Jura Mountain range above Lake Geneva, in Switzerland.
Yet it comes from the Alps, many miles distant. How did ‘Pierre a Martin’ get up a mountain, tens of miles away?
How did so many ‘erractic boulders’ originating in Norway somehow travel across the sea to come to rest on the British coastline, and also high up in the Harz mountains, in Central Germany?
The same can be asked of large chunks of rock that somehow travelled from Finland over to the Carpathians, and even to Moscow, while other blocks of granite from Canada were ripped off and scattered all over Maine, New York, Massachusetts and Ohio, to name but a few - and are frequently found on the tops of the highest mountain ranges.
How did they get there?
Some of these stones weigh 10,000 tons or more, like that in Warren County, Ohio (13,500 tons), while the chalk stone erratic boulder in Malmo, Sweden measures three miles long. Even today, mankind hasn’t got the sort of technology that would enable it to transport a three mile long rock overland.
GEORGES CUVIER, FOUNDING FATHER OF PALEONTOLOGY
French naturalist Georges Cuvier was the founding father of paleontology (the study of fossil bones). In 1827, after spending many a long month studying the gypsum deposits located in Montmatre in Paris, and elsewhere in France, he wrote that:
“It has frequently happened that lands which have been laid dry have been covered again by the waters, in consequence either of their being engulfed in the abyss, or of the sea having merely risen over them…These repeated eruptions and retreats of the sea have been neither slow nor gradual; on the contrary, most of the catastrophes that have occasioned them have been sudden…
“Life has often been disturbed on this earth by terrific events. Numberless living beings have been the victims of these catastrophes; some, which inhabited the dry land, have been swallowed up by inundations; others, which peopled the waters, have been laid dry, their very races have been extinguished forever.”
The limestone deposits that Cuvier was examining painted a clear picture of large swathes of what is now France being deep underwater before becoming a land swarming with reptiles, before again being submerged under the waves and becoming home to marine life, then once again becoming land, this time populated by mammals - and so the cycle repeated itself again.
“Admitting that there has been a gradual diminution of the waters; that the sea has transported solid matter in all directions; that the temperature of the globe is either diminishing or increasing - none of these cases could have overturned our strata, enveloped large animals in ice, together with their flesh and skin, laid dry marine [animals]… and lastly, destroyed numerous species, and even entire genera.”
Cuvier’s observation is still wholly applicable today. So what did cause all these things to happen?
(We already know WHO caused these things to happen, i.e. God, the Creator of the world, and why, as set out by our Midrashim. We also know how many times the strata were overturned before man came on the scene, i.e. 974 times, plus at least a couple more timeS in the last 5777 years, during the time of Enosh, and during the time of Noah’s flood. But it’s amazing to see that the scientific evidence increasingly stacks up IN FAVOR of the genuine, Jewish account of the planet’s dramatic history. And there’s still so much more to come…)
TIGER REMAINS IN YORKSHIRE CAVES
William Buckland was a professor of geology at Oxford University at the beginning of the 19th century. In 1823, he published a work called ‘Relics of the Flood’, which detailed a number of strange findings that he attributed to some massive, world-wide ‘deluge’ or natural disaster.
For example, Buckland had excavated a cave in Kirkdale, Yorkshire, that was at an elevation of 80 foot, which contained the teeth and bones of a veritable zoo, including rhinoceroses, hippotamuses, horses, deer, tigers, bears, wolves, hyenas, foxes, hares, rabbits, pigeons, larks and ducks.
How did this conglomeration of animals come to be in the United Kingdom in the first place, and what where they doing crushed together in a cave in Yorkshire?
The same question could be asked about the group of hippopotamus, reindeer and mammoth found at Brentford, in the South East of England, the reindeers and grizzly bears that were at Cefn in Wales, and the reindeers, cave lions and hyenas that were found crushed together in a cave in Bleadon, Somerset.
To quote Velikovsky again: “According to the prophecy of Isaiah (11:6) in messianic times to come the lion and the calf would pasture together. But even prophetic vision hasn’t conceived of a reindeer from snow-covered Lapland and a hippopotamus from the tropical Congo River living together on the British Isles.”
But while these animals certainly died together, and their bones were entombed together, it’s highly unlikely that they actually lived together for any length of time. Buckland asserted that he was: “nearly certain that if any change of climate has taken place, it took place suddenly.”
Like Cuvier before him, Buckland was of the opinion that the flood, or natural disaster that caused these strange burial groupings must have occurred no more than 5000-6000 years previously.
He concluded: “What the cause was, whether a change in the inclination of the earth’s axis, or the near approach of a comet, or any other cause or combination of causes purely astronomical, is a question the discussion of which is foreign to the object of the present memoir.”
THE MASS EXTINCTION OF FISH LIFE
At the same time that the Victorian researchers were amassing accounts of the violent, dramatic and almost instant death of millions of animals on land, the same picture was also emerging from the depths of the oceans, too.
Writing in 1865, Hugh Miller examined the Old Red Sandstone strata located in Northern Scotland, and noted that:
“some terrible catastrophe involved the sudden destruction of fish of an area at least a hundred miles from boundary to boundary, perhaps much more… [the remains] exhibit unequivocally the marks of violent death…. The remains too, appear to have suffered nothing from the after-attacks of predaceous fish; none such seem to have survived. The record is one of destruction, at once widely spread and total….”
Again, this was not an unusual scene. Writing about what he’d seen in northern Italy, Buckland wrote:
“The circumstances under which the fossil fishes are found at Monte Bolca seem to indicate that they perished suddenly…All these fishes must have died suddenly… and have been speedily buried in the calcareous sediment.”
The same held true for fish deposits found in the German Harz Mountains, and in Saarbrucken, and Oensingen in Switzerland, and Aix-en-Provence in France, and also in Ohio, Michigan, Arizona and California.
Millions upon millions of fish died a sudden, agonizing death, and then were instantly buried and ‘fossilised’ by sand and gravel as a violent upheaval pulled the sea bottom up out of the ocean, and turned their formerly watery environment into dry land.
TO SUM THIS BIT UP:
While modern science likes to pretend that the world is many millions of years old, and that nothing ‘dramatic’ ever occurred, and certainly not within a few thousand years of our present time, and certainly not instantly, the scientific evidence demonstrating the exact opposite is literally found all over the world, in the fossil record.
Land became sea, and sea became land, repeatedly, literally overnight. Mountains became valleys, and vice-versa, instantly. Whole swathes of formerly tropical, lush countryside was destroyed, petrified and then instantly flash-frozen - and much of this was witnessed by modern man.
So far, the scientific evidence is clearly showing score one for the Torah’s account of the history of the world, and score zero for evolution, and modern science’s theories of what occurred, when, and how.
But there is still a huge amount of additional scientific evidence that we need to enter into the record, in the next few posts.
To be continued…
Ah, where to start with this subject? There are so many false ‘gods’ at this point - false narratives, falsified facts, false pictures of reality, false assumptions, faulty theories - that it could really be a life-long work just to start skimming off the first layer.
Still, every journey begins with the first step, and every story begins with the first word, so let’s begin with the false ‘god’ of Radiocarbon Dating.
If you believe the scientists, radiocarbon dating is an infallible method of measuring the age of artifacts, plant life, archaeological, human and animal remains, remnants of previous civilization and epochs on earth.
The basic idea behind radiocarbon dating is that it ‘works’ by measuring how much radioactive, or ‘radio’ carbon (14C) is released into the atmosphere over a certain period of time, as the carbon (12C) contained in the organic material being studied degrades and decomposes.
Radiocarbon dating was the brainchild of one Willard F. Libby, who published his treatise on radiocarbon dating in 1952 - and clearly stated the limitations of radiocarbon Dating right up front, as honest scientists were once wont to do.
Libby made the following observations about the accuracy of the method:
1) The atmosphere, biosphere and the hydrosphere (oceans) are the three reservoirs of radiocarbon on earth, with the seas by far and away containing the greatest concentration of radiocarbon.
If the quantity of water in the hydrosphere had changed substantially over the last 40,000 years (to use Libby’s own chronology), and / or the amount or carbon diluted in the oceans had substantially changed over this time period then radiocarbon dating wouldn’t return an accurate result.
(Park all these bits of info in the back of your brain as we go along, we’ll sum it all up neatly at the end.)
2) If the quantity and / or intensity of cosmic rays (another way of describing the particles of energy released by the sun and other celestial bodies, that are constantly bombarding the earth and which are part of our space weather) had substantially changed of this same period of time, then again radiocarbon dating wouldn’t return an accurate result.
Of course, at the time that Libby was doing his research, no-one in the hallowed halls of science doubted for a moment that the world was billions, even trillions of years old, and that the most exciting event that had happened to the planet in the last 50,000 years was just a very slow accretion of mud, well on the way to forming the next Mount Everest in a few more billion years… (sarcasm mine).
RADIOCARBON DATING RETURNS SOME INCREASINGLY ODD RESULTS
But the truth is that right from the start, radiocarbon dating started to return some very odd results.
For example, when wood grown in the 20th century was radiocarbon dated, it constantly appeared to be ‘older’ than wood from the 19th century. This was explained away, by some guy called Suess, who claimed that mass industrial burning of fossil fuels like coal and oil had changed the ratio between carbon and radiocarbon in the biosphere.
So henceforth, any human remains, animal parts or vegetation from the 20th century onwards would show up as being ‘older’, according to standard radiocarbon dating techniques, than stuff that actually preceded it by a century, or more, according to the calendar.
But never mind! Radiocarbon was still a peerlessly accurate way of dating everything else in the world !!! (sarcasm mine).
Which is when the next set of awkward data started to show up - in droves - that showed that radiocarbon dates were often between 500-700 years out, according to what was presumed to be the fixed historical date of the organic matter being tested.
This was particularly the case with Egyptian artifacts and the standard chronology assigned to ancient Egypt. This perplexing situation suggested that either, the standard chronology being used by Egyptologists was completely ‘off’, or the radiocarbon dating method was inaccurate.
Both views were actually true, but for different reasons.
Over the very short term, i.e. the last 4,000 years or so, radiocarbon dating is actually fairly accurate. Which is when science started to stumble over other awkward ‘data’ from radiocarbon experiments, including some which showed:
1) The last so-called ‘ice-age’ actually only occurred 3,500 years ago (Rubin and Suess, Geological Survey of the USA.)
2) Oil, which science claims takes millions of years to form, was radiocarbon dated by PV Smith of the Esso Research Lab in 1950 at a petroleum-bearing formation off the Gulf, who reported the ‘surprising’ discovery that it was formed in what’s called ‘Recent’ sediment, and therefore “must have been deposited in the last 9,200 (sic) years.”
(Again, set aside the Torah’s (accurate!) dating of the world for now. We’re just trying to show here that even according to the scientists’ own methods and gauge of time, so many of the scientific theories about life on our planet are just plain wrong.)
How could science explain this contradiction?
(The short answer is that they couldn’t, so they hastily shelved any of the radiocarbon data that didn’t ‘fit’ with their preconceived notions, across a whole bunch of disciplines.)
But if that wasn’t enough to think about, there was another huge problem with the radiocarbon dating method: The world has been through many, enormously dramatic natural upheavals and cataclysms since it was created, 5,777 years ago.
Authentic Jewish sources clearly spell this out (see THIS article) - as do many other 'ancient' traditions from other civilisations that modern science likes to dismiss as imaginative hogwash. Let’s very briefly sum up the main points that are covered more detail in that article, before we continue:
1) GOD CREATED 974 WORLDS BEFORE THIS ONE.
There were 974 generations and worlds created BEFORE our current one, in a process that lasted 2,000 years.
2) PREVIOUSLY, WHENEVER GOD DESTROYED ONE OF THESE 974 WORLDS, HE DID THAT BY OVERTURNING THE EARTH FROM THE T’HOM, I.E., FROM THE DEPTH OF THE WATER TABLE
God destroyed the previous 974 generations by flipping the earth’s crust over from the water table, completely destroying all life on the planet in an instant, and returning the world to TOHU AND BOHU, the Hebrew terms for chaos and ‘nothingness’.
3) GOD WILL CHANGE PLANET EARTH (OUR EXISTING ONE) 7 TIMES BEFORE MOSHIACH COMES
Those seven world are:
World 1: Adam and Eve (Year 1 in the Hebrew calendar, 5777 years ago)
Midrash (Bereishit Rabba 10:4) tells us:
Before Adam HaRishon sinned, the heavenly bodies had shorter and quicker orbits. Once man sinned, God caused the celestial orbs to travel in longer and slower circuits. Since then, the apparent circuit of the sun takes 12 months, the orbit of the moon, just under thirty days, etc
Rav Dovid Brown explains:
“In order for the solar year to have been less than 12 months, the earth would necessarily have been closer to the sun that it is now…If the earth was closer to the sun, the energy received from the sun would be greater…greater energy would result in a more powerful earth with capabilities inconceivable to us…The loss of this greater energy would result in a weaker earth and inferior beings inhabiting it.”
To put this another way, the intensity of cosmic rays bombarding planet earth DEFINITELY CHANGED, from current norms, when Adam and Eve were around.
World 2: From Adam to Enosh (Year 1 to Year 1140 in the Hebrew calendar, when Enosh died)
There was a partial flood of the world at this time, and also new mountain ranges sprang up overnight, undoubtedly due to ‘action at a distance’ effects from a passing planet-sized comet or celestial body. Again, this would dramatically affect the atmosphere, biosphere and hydrosphere, rendering modern radiocarbon dating measurements obsolete.
World 3: Enosh to Noah’s flood (Year 1140 - Year 1656 in the Hebrew calendar)
Sforno (Parshat Noach 8:22) explains that:
Before the mabbul (Noah’s flood), the apparent circuit of the sun was directly around the equator.
The change in the attitude of the earth after the mabbul, so that the earth faces the sun at in inclination of the axis, is the cause of the varying seasons.
Before the mabbul, the climate was perpetually warm due to the sun striking the earth directly at the equator. That environment was extraordinarily robust compared to the modern world’s, and the earth had greater energy in all its members, mineral, vegetable, animal and human.
Again, clearly the cosmic rays bombarding the planet during this period weren’t occurring at the same relatively ‘fixed’ levels and intensity observed in more modern times.
World 4: The Mabbul (Noah’s flood) (Year 1656 in the Hebrew calendar, 4121 years ago)
Geologically: A foot of the earth’s topsoil is washed away, the rest of the earth is ‘mixed’ with boiling water that contains sulphur, polluting the earth’s ground and weakening it for the rest of the world’s natural lifespan.
Also, the earth received NO ENERGY from the celestial bodies throughout this time, also severely weakening its ability to produce food and support life.
World 5 - aging, physical degeneration and illness (Beginning around the year 2000 in the Hebrew calendar)
The Midrash (in Pesikta D’Rav Kahana, 22) tells us:
“When Yitzhak was born [in 2048], God increased the light emitted by the heavenly luminaries.”
The Gemara in Tractate Chullin, 91B, also explains how the sun changed its course twice, during the lifetime of Yaacov Avinu (who was born in 2108).
And then there were other enormous upheavals too, at the time of Moses and the Israelite exodus from ancient Egypt.
These astronomical changes brought about changes in the cosmic radiation bombarding planet Earth that had direct and immediate results on how the human body aged, degenerated and became ill, from that point on - all of which is born out by the latest findings in bio-physics.
And all these events also affected the fundamental basis for the accuracy of radiocarbon dating.
The last major changes to the physical nature of the world occurred in the time of King Hezekiah (who ruled for 29 years, around Year 3200 in the Hebrew calendar).
In this particular instance, the Midrash in Esther Rabba (3:1) explains that the world ‘gained’ five hours as a result of this astronomical shift, as measured by the ancient sun-clock of Ahaz.
THE WORLD HAS CHANGED, FUNDAMENTALLY, AT LEAST SIX TIMES IN THE LAST 5777 YEARS
Which is why radiocarbon dating simply doesn’t work, accurately, for anything going back more than around 4,100 years.
That’s also why radiocarbon dating happily assigns dates in the millions (and even billions…) of years to organic matter that is actually only maximally 8,000 years’ old (including the Torah’s assignment of 2000 years to the 974 worlds that preceded ours), because it’s working on the twin assumptions stated at the beginning that radiocarbon decays today at the same rate it always has - which is simply not true!
To quote Immanuel Velikovsky, who painstakingly pieced together so much of the scientific evidence that clearly shows that the events described above did occur, and have left innumerable traces even today:
“Bursts of cosmic rays and of electrical discharges on an interplanetary scale would make organic life surviving the catastrophes much richer in radiocarbon.” So any radiocarbon test would date these remains as being much younger than they actually are.
At the same time: “If invasion of the terrestrial atmosphere by ‘dead’ (non-radioactive) carbon from volcanic eruptions, meteoric dust, burning oil and coal and centuries-old forests predominated the picture, than the changed balance of radioactive and radio-inert carbon would make everything in the decades following the events appear much older.”
And on Noah’s flood specifically, Velikovsky writes that: “The Deluge increased the water basin, or hydrosphere, on earth… It’s quite possible that the volume of water was more than doubled on earth in this one cataclysm.”
STOPPING THE CRITICS IN THEIR TRACK
At this point in the story, the people who like to believe that the world is 14 billion years old (at least) and who have devoted their lives to the church and theology of evolution, and who hate even the suggestion that God might actually exist, and that the Torah is actually true, will start jumping up and down and playing their ‘scientific evidence’ card.
“Where’s the evidence for these statements?” they’ll demand. “Where’s the scientific proof for this heresy that radiocarbon dating is unreliable?!”
(As a side note, if you have two months spare I highly recommend reading through the whole of Immanuel Velikovsky’s collected works on this subject, but at the very least his epic ‘Earth in Upheaval’.)
I’m guessing you don’t have that much time to spare, so this is your lucky day: I’m going to start summarizing a lot of the evidence that shows, incontrovertibly, that the earth underwent a number of enormous upheavals within the last 5,000 years.
It’s scary reading, especially if you don’t believe in God, or don’t want to believe in God, which is usually the real problem.
But scientific evidence is scientific evidence, after all, and should be admitted into the records of discussion. So we’ll pick this back up in the next post, BH.
 (See the following sources: Chagiga 13b, Midrash Bereishit Rabba 3:7, Midrash Tehillim 34:1. Zohar Bereshit 25a).
 Midrash Tanchuma (Yitro 14) tells us: “When God sought to give the Torah He first offered it to all the nations other than Yisroel, but they refused it. He wanted to return the world to its dimension of water. When Yisroel accepted the Torah, the world was stabilised.”
 Pirkay d’Rabbi Eliezer (18) says:
God created seven worlds, or which his favorite is the last. Six of them to come and go, and one which is pure Shabbat.
 (More sources: Sanhedrin 108a, Bereishit Rabba (26:2), Pirkey D’Rabbi Eliezer (22), Bereishit Rabbat 34:11 and 36:1, Agudat Bereishit (10).)

So, for sure you’ve noticed how just about everyone you know, including yourself (if you’re honest…) is starting to exhibit some extreme mood swings and strong emotions, right? Here’s just a small selection of what I’ve heard and / or seen going on around me in the last little while:
One normally very calm, sweet and forgiving person told me they had such an uncharacteristic rage fit with a rude shopping assistant that they left the store shaking with anger, and it took them hours and hours to calm down again afterwards…
Another person snapped and violently attacked their spouse…
Another person got plunged into the biggest pit of despair and overwhelm about a problem that, yes is a problem, but not SUCH a big problem to merit such a enormous reaction…
Someone else got so overwhelmed by feelings of existential loneliness that they proposed marriage to someone they barely knew (thank God, the person turned them down…)
I could go on, but I’m sure you have your own examples of extreme, unusual reactions, decisions and behaviours going on all around you, and also inside you.
So what the heck is going on?!?
There’s a number of answers to this question, and the more spiritual answers you’ll find over on my other blog, at www.emunaroma.com. But on this blog, I try to concentrate on the more tangible explanations, or the visible processes that God is using to create a particular reaction or set of circumstances.
So what I think is going on, within that paradigm, is that the huge, unexplained body that’s currently in our solar system, and that goes by the various names of ‘Planet X’, ‘Nibiru’, ‘Kochav Yaacov’, or some other comet nomenclature is hugely affecting the bio-electrical structure of our planet - and the humans who live here.
(Again, I know this can sound pretty bizarre and ‘out there’ if you haven’t already been introduced to how the universe, world and human health actually really works, so if that’s you, you may want to take a look at these articles before you continue:)
We’re all kind of feeling ‘subliminally stressed’ at the moment, as our bio-electrical systems are being disrupted by the increased ions, protons, whatever they are in the atmosphere, that are part and parcel of what’s called the ‘solar wind’, or the energy that comes streaming in our direction from the sun.
If you take a look at THIS article, you’ll see how the universe really works, and is electrical in nature, and how when there’s a large comet / planet circling around our solar system, that causes the electrical activity between all the other bodies in the solar system, including the sun and planet earth, to go haywire.
So in a nutshell, the same phenomena that’s causing all these hurricanes in the US and the Caribbean (and even in the UK…), and unusually destructive wildfires all over the world, and massive earthquakes in Italy and Mexico, and floods in the Indian subcontinent, and exploding volcanoes in the ‘ring of fire’ in the Pacific, and also all the earthquake swarms being noted in the US and elsewhere - it’s also affecting us, you and me, on a micro level.
It’s making us feel increasingly ‘subliminally stressed’, which means we’re going into FIGHT-FLIGHT-FREEZE-FAWN mode without even realizing it, and that we have much less patience, generosity, kindness or self-awareness than usual.
We’re all walking around with hair-triggers, prepared to let anyone and everyone have it.
Why is God doing this?
Because He wants us to stop running away from our repressed negative emotions and bad character traits, and to actually acknowledge them and deal with them properly.
You, lady, have an anger issue! That’s why you keep sending out such atrocious emails to people, and commenting so acerbically on other people’s blogs.
You, sir, are sunk in despair and apathy! That’s why you drink so much and spend so much of your time glued to the telly, watching YouTube vids on your massive 50 inch screen.
You, madam, really hate and resent your parents, and you never, ever dealt with it! That’s why now, you find it so hard to enjoy your own family life, and you have a nervous breakdown every time another family get-together looms.
And so on and so forth.
But right now, God’s decided that we can’t run away from this stuff anymore. It’s time to look it squarely in the face, acknowledge the problems, and try to fix them.
And if we don’t do that, then at least in our lives, the ‘crazy days’ we’re experiencing are only going to come more furious, and more frequently.
