62. BACK TO SIBERIA: THE BIGGEST FLOOD? [Science Frontiers Website]
... devastated. (Folger, Tim; "The Biggest Flood," Discover, 15:36, January 1994.) Comment. The breaking of Pleistocene ice dams also carved up parts of North America. There was the famous Cincinnati ice dam and, of course, the Spokane Flood that gouged out the Channelled Scablands of the Pacific Northwest, when Lake Missoula catastrophically emptied into the Pacific. See ETM5 in our catalog: Carolina Bays, Mima Mounds. It is described here. But other thoughts intrude: Were the heaps of mammoth carcasses, the Siberian "ivory islands," and those anomalous stone tools mentioned earlier under Archeology the consequences similar Siberian floods?

63. DWARF MAMMOTHS IN ANCIENT EGYPT? [Science Frontiers Website]
... exotic animals. One of these animals is an obvious bear. This animal would have intrigued the pharaoh because bears and ancient Egyptians did not coexist. Just as exotic to the pharaoh would have been the miniature elephantid following just behind the bear in the painting. It was about the same size as the bear. Since this elephantid was depicted with large tusks, it was definitely not an immature. It also displayed the peculiar domed skull typical of mammoths and which is absent on African elephants. Could it have been a late-surviving dwarf mammoth brought all the way from Siberia? Of course, there are alternative interpretations. Asian elephants do have domed skulls, and the artist could have deliberately drawn the elephantid at a reduced scale. However, other animals are realistically sized.

64. A Nuclear Catastrophe In Paleoindian Times? [Science Frontiers Website]
... circa 12,500 years ago, not only reset radiocarbon clocks but also heated the planet's atmosphere, melted ice sheets, and led to biological extinctions. If verified, the claimed phenomenon would also "reset" archeological models of the settlement of North and South America. To illustrate, we may have to add as many as 10,000 years to site dates in much of North America! (Firestone, Richard B., and Topping, William; "Terrestrial Evidence of a Nuclear Catastrophe in Paleoindian Times," The Mammoth Trumpet, 16:9, March 2001. Cr. C. Davant III. This off-mainstream journal is published by the Center for the Study of the First Americans, 355 Weniger Hall, Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR 97331-6510.) Comment. Thus we add another potential cause of an often-hypothesized, 12,500-BP catastrophe that is said to have changed the world's history. Competing theories involve asteroid impact, volcanism, a Venusian side-swipe, etc. Sites discussed in the region purported to have been zapped by a burst ...
65. Were The First Americans Australians? [Science Frontiers Website]
... above context that one of the Bradshaw paintings depicts a boat with upright prow and stern and which is manned by many paddlers. The Bradshaw people obviously were familiar with the sea. No one seems to know when the Brad shaw Culture flourished in Australia or where it came from. It disappeared suddenly, leaving behind perhaps 100,000 Bradshaw "art galleries" decorating rock overhangs along Australian rivers. (Ref. 2) References Ref. 1. Cardich, Augusto; "The First Americans: Were They Australians?" The Mammoth Trumpet, 16:4, March 2001. Cr. C. Davant. Ref. 2. Coukell, Allan; "Spellbound," New Scientist, p. 34, May 19, 2001. Comments. We have already briefly discussed Australia's "mystery race" that was responsible for the highly anomalous Bradshaw paintings in SF#117. An early Australian cultural beachhead in South America is, of course, relevant to the preceding "pyramid" item. From Science Frontiers #136, JUL-AUG 2001.© 2001 William ...
66. An Extraterrestrial Hypothesis [SIS Internet Digest $]
... by collision of the Earth with a comet. E. P. Izokh*. GEOLOGIYA I GEOFIZIKA, 1997, Vol.38, No.3, pp.628-660 [in Russian. *Russian Academy of Science, Siberian Division, Joint Institute of Geological Geophysics& Mineralogy, Novosibirsk 630090, Russia. About 10,000 years ago, at the Pleistocene-Holocene border, some important events occurred: the glaciation stopped abruptly; the sea level elevated, and quick (for 20-50 years) climatic and ecological changes took place, leading to the extinction of "mammoth fauna" and exerting a direct effect on mankind's evolution and appearance of civilizations. It is shown in the paper that the disaster under study was caused by the collision of the Earth with an eruptive comet, brought various volcanic tektite glasses from a remote planetary body. This extra-terrestrial source of tektites is proven by the well-known but not adopted paradox of tektite age, i.e. a difference in hundreds of thousands and millions of years between the radiogenic age of tektites (time of formation) and time of their fall onto the Earth ...

... Digest 1997:1 (Sep 1997) Home¦ Issue Contents talk.origins Frequently Asked Questions Archive http://www.talkorigins.org/origins/faqs-catastrophism.html Holden and Megafauna Ted Holden, a talk.origins catastrophist, has claimed that dinosaur sauropods would be too heavy to carry themselves about in current gravitational conditions. He proposes that the "felt effect of gravity" was reduced in the not-too-distant past, allowing such large beasts to walk around. This FAQ explores Holden's claims.

An examination of the catastrophist claim that preserved mammoth remains indicate the occurrence a great catastrophe (as described by catastrophist Immanuel Velikovsky). Is Venus Young? Is Venus the young planet the Velikovskians say it is? Could it be only a few thousand years old, as opposed to the few billion that standard theories would imply? The age of Venus is considered from three lines of evidence: atmosphere, surface, and interior.

... and defend the theory of uniformity with even greater jealousy than their colleagues who never wavered and never were even tempted to question the ever harmonious run of centuries. Here is the case of Professor F. Rainey, presently with the University of Pennsylvania; him I quoted on p. I of ? Earth in Upheaval ? and please look up: ? Wide cuts, often several miles in length ? are sliced by giant machines in Alaska; ? This ? muck ? contains enormous numbers of frozen bones of extinct animals such as the mammoth, mastodon, super-bison and horse ? (Rainey). I am in the possession of a letter by Prof. Rainey, whom I just quoted, and it was written to one of my readers. But how different from his own observations. The idea of great catastrophes is entirely strange to him and he asserts that Velikovsky was completely disproven by radiocarbon especially in Egyptian chronology which was proven very exact and many times so in their laboratory and in many other places. Do you know why such proofs were not made public ...

You, however, refer to ? puzzling exceptions ? and cases ? when a valid radiocarbon date disagrees radically with an archaeological date.? Are objects from Egypt or from the Middle or Near East in this category? A second question: Did it occur that the method revealed a late date (say, 3500 years ago) for the survival of animals like mastodon or mammoth? I would appreciate it very much if you could give me the required information. Very sincerely, Immanuel Velikovsky ...
