... petroleum millions of years ago. Sagan's inability to see outside his gradualist blinders will continue to lead him to evaluate catastrophic evidence by applying gradualistic analyses. However, let us take Sagan on his own gradualistic terms regarding the age of oil. Sagan apparently accepts the view that oil takes a million years or more to form. He also accepts radiocarbon age dating analysis. Radiocarbon analysis supposedly can age date a substance that is no older than 50,000 or possibly 100,000 years old. Since oil is at least a million or more years old, according to Sagan, it should not give a radiocarbon date. P.V . Smith in a paper in Science, ...

152. Forum [Journals] [Pensee]
... : W. F. Libby (Pensee, spring-summer, 1973, p. 8) states that "man first came to the Americas apparently only 12,000 years ago.... Lascaux color paintings were made 4,000 years before the first humans came to the Americas.... in twenty years, the firm radiocarbon dates for human occupation [in America] have never exceeded 12,000 years." Recent finds in the Americas and their attendant study render these remarks completely untenable. From 1966 until 1970 a site on the Old Crow River in the Yukon "yielded 390 fossil vertebrate specimens, including a bone implement and a number of bone artifacts ...

... ) in the Aegean Sea, which is generally agreed to have been of the same magnitude as that of Tambora (1815). The tephra production has recently been estimated at more than 28 km3 (13 km3 of dense rock equivalent) [7 ]. This unusually large eruption has been radio-carbon dated at 1720 50 BC on the calibrated radiocarbon scale... However, archaeological evidence from the excavation of the Minoan settlement near Akrotiri on Santorini strongly suggests that the island was inhabited least up to 1500 BC judging by Egyptian pottery style chronology; it was apparently abandoned shortly before the eruption, and in good order because no valuables have been found nor people killed by the heavy ...

154. The Age Of Man In America [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... mass spectrometry, that place man at that site 14,000 or 14,500 years ago.23 Grayson describes the Meadowcroft research this way: "The deepest Meadowcroft deposits appear to date about 31,000 years ago .. .. Indeed, Meadowcroft is one of the best-dated archaeological sites in the world, Adovasio having obtained 52 radiocarbon dates for the site, dates that range from 175 years ago at the top... to 31,000 years ago at the bottom. "These dates produce a consistent picture of the accumulation of deposits in Meadowcroft, since, with extremely rare exceptions, as the deposits get deeper, the dates get older, just as ...

155. Evidence of An Inversion Event? [Journals] [Aeon]
... Velikovsky(1 ) brought forth his amazing proposal that the Earth had a number of close encounters with another cosmic body in the general period 2800 to 3500 years before present, and that forces in play during those encounters caused the Earth to capsize at least once and perhaps two or more times. Velikovsky developed his hypothesis before the time of radiocarbon dating and before it was recognized that geomagnetic reversals of the Earth's magnetic field have occurred hundreds of times during the past millions of years. In general, radiometric dating has adversely affected the credibility of Velikovsky's proposals. For example, it has been shown that certain phenomena that Velikovsky associated with an inversion event, or events, such as ...

... English Channel formed, cutting Britain off from the continent. This appears to be part of a catastrophic event when a huge landslide off the coast of Norway inundated low-lying lands now submerged beneath the North Sea and at the same time caused massive tsunamis which devastated the east coast of Scotland. Evidence for the tsunamis has been found in sand sediments radiocarbon dated to around 5800 BC and the remains of a hunting camp where flint tools and weapons were scattered across a wide area. Many coastal villages would have been wiped out. Canary Conundrum New Scientist 22.9 .01, p. 53 When the Spanish first came across the Canary Islands they were inhabited by the Guanches who had ...

... Geographic May 2001, pp. 52-68 Pitman and Ryan's theory of the catastrophic flooding of the Black Sea 7,500 years ago has received more supporting evidence. Sonar exploration of the present lake bed revealed the old shore line 500 feet below the surface, where Pitman and Ryan had predicted it to be, and the age was confirmed by radiocarbon dating of mollusc shells, the transition between older freshwater ones and younger saltwater ones being the point indicative of the sudden in rush of saltwater from the Mediterranean. Inland Tsunamis New Scientist 16.12.00, pp. 40-43 Tsunamis don't just happen at sea; they can be equally devastating in inland lakes. Evidence from Lake Tahoe ...

... not buried in a dry sand storm but by dunes which collapsed when they were soaked with water. The presence of clay in the deposits indicates that there was both rainfall and vegetation. Catastrophic end to Ice Age New Scientist 28.3 .98, p. 7 There is evidence for a vast submarine landslide in the western Mediterranean, radiocarbon dated to 22,000 years ago. It is suggested that the slip produced highly destructive tsunamis all round the Mediterranean and released huge quantities of methane hydrates which could have set a new climatic warming phase in progress and bringing about the end of the last Ice Age,.

... from extraterrestrial sources; sulphur (brimstone) rain, non-volcanic and extraterrestrial; and gas explosion in the atmosphere, terrestrial or extraterrestrial by origin. In respect to the techniques, one would speak of ambiance induction; artifact analysis; comparative historical deduction; thermal-visual examination; morphological examination; electron scanning microscopy; chemical mineralogical tests; thermo-luminescence tests; radiocarbon tests; potassium-argon tests; radiation level tests; and tests for paleo-magnetism. Inasmuch as individual techniques may dispose of more than one theory, it may be best to proceed by offering a few words concerning their relevance. Fundamental to pursuing all causal alternatives is a careful inductive study of the ambiance of combustion. Whether performed on records of ...

... some large meteorites pelted it, too. These events are described on many pages of Worlds in Collision as having taken place mainly in the 8th century before the present era... the sharp outlines of the formations, in the presence of an atmosphere, speak for their recentness. ' Velikovsky's efforts of more than a decade to induce radiocarbon laboratories around the world to test objects from the New Kingdom of Egypt have yielded their first fruits. The test results are compatible with Velikovsky's chronology and quite incompatible with the conventional timetable. In 1963 three small pieces of wood from the tomb of Tutankhamen were delivered to the radiocarbon laboratory of the University of Pennsylvania Museum. The Director of ...
