81. CHAOS AND CREATION: CHAPTER 07: EARTH PARTURITION AND MOON BIRTH [Quantavolution Website]
... , when aberrant bodies in space are taken more seriously-- and even the possibility of terrestrial rocks and water being splashed upon the Moon by a cometary impact has been posited by geologist Harold Urey [7-- the first mechanism to look for is a space intruder. The stripped-down area is today occupied in part by the land that pushed into it. Conventional continental drift theory only lends confusion. But D. V. Wise writes, "Many positions of drifting or accreting continents eliminate any a priori condition to find the scar of separation on our present Earth, although if a 'navel' must be located, the Pacific basin is as good a spot as any." [8 The west coast ranges of Northern America have some formation similar to the east Chinese coast [9. This would point to a more southerly explosion. The great Nazca Ridge and seamounts off of South America traverse the East Pacific Rise into the Tuamotu and Taburi Islands, an immensely long transverse fracturing and outbursting of magma. This feature would have followed the eruption of the ...

When it was realized the sun had been there once, the idea occurred that the Milky Way might mark the abandoned track of the sun-- a burnt out area, as it were, a scar in heaven." (37) This thesis is beset by a host of problems. That there is no good evidence for knowledge of precession before Hipparchus has been noted by various authorities. (38) Yet if the thesis of de Santillana and von Dechend be true, not only must knowledge of the precession go back well into Neolithic times-- for surely these traditions are at least that old-- but such knowledge must also be credited to the aboriginal peoples of Africa and Australia, where like traditions are to ...
