We continue our deep dive into Velikovski's excellent book,
Earth in Upheaval, first backtracking a bit from the last
episode to go over the "beginnings of Uniformitarianism", the early
study of mass ice movements in places around the globe, and some of
Charles Darwin's observations of the evidence for the catastrophic
extinction of species. Then we move forward in the book to look at
more instances of enormous amounts of plant and animal remains that
are found broken, shattered, and crammed into caves and crevices
around the world, where they are found fossilized today.
Also, in the second segment of the show, we interview Marc Young, an archaeology student from Australia who has been helping George Howard assemble a bibliography on the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis on the Cosmic Tusk website. We talk to him briefly about how he became interested in archaeology and how he got involved with George.
We then spend a lot of time talking with him about his work in Northern Mongolia, where his University has been doing some archaeological work on ancient cultures, and how Marc began to recognize the geological signs of catastrophic events that must have taken place in the relatively recent past. He then takes us on a fascinating Google Earth tour of the area, showing the path of meltwater and the signs it has written into the landscape.
