Since that layer is preserved world wide the chances of finding a fossil of something covered by that layer should be pretty good. Since I wrote the question it has come to me. Acid rain. The rock blasted by the impact had a high sulfur content. That sulfur came back down as acid rain and that must have dissolved all the dead things that would have been either under or on top of that layer. Either that or the dinosaurs were already mostly gone before the impact. And that the very few that died off just over the layer were in small enough numbers that there just weren't anything left to fossilize. Am I getting warm?
World wide we have the layers made my the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs. But to the best of my knowledge they've never found a dinosaur fossil IN that layer. If that's what killed them all you'd suspect there would be millions of them everywhere. Why aren't they?
The patomskiy crater is in Siberia. There have been many theories about how it formed. They are all wrong. None of the theories presented fit the crater enough to be definitive. They say meteors or volcano. Neither will cause a crater like that. And the rock is limestone, not an igneous rock. There is evidence that something radioactive was there also.
I have a theory. One which is falsifiable. Something, and I do not know what is was came to that spot and buried itself. It is still there. The magnetic surveys have established that a large piece of magnetic material is below the crater. It would not be too difficult to go there and drill down the 200 feet to whatever metal thing that's down there. Logically any large metal device capable of flight was impossible 400 years ago when this crater is thought to have formed. That would lead to an extraterrestrial origin.
Sonar and radio surveys to establish the depth and size of the object would have to be done before any digging. I think this may be the most historic find in the history of history. It would be absolute proof that Earth is not alone.
Do yall reckon the lack of interest in this crater is suspicious? If I figured it out it couldn't be too hard to figure yet no one is doing the work that would be required to solve this.
Noah's flood was a result of ice melt ultimately. There were incredibly huge lakes in NA and they rose sea levels by about 400 feet or so. In a very short time period. Since humans have always lived close to the oceans that killed some 80% of world population. The extent of the flood is easily visible on google Earth. That would be the sand going some 200 miles inland in the south of the USA.It settled about halfway of the new height. It's why the beach is where it is.
Bueller? I know there are sites with fossil soil and burrows and the like. My question concerns Sandstone and Flat Top mountains in Raleigh County WV. And layers of the Carolina Slate Belt. How do you go from pure sand to a deep swamp back to deep sand back and forth some dozen times? I see things and try to square them with what I have learned. My first mystery was charcoal 3 or more feet deep on every hillside my dad dug. I learned that is how mountains erode. Lightning sparks a fire, the tree roots wither, and then a landslide. Mystery solved.
In West Virginia There is a sequence of rocks. At the bottom you have a thick layer of featureless sandstone. Shallow seas where oysters grew are next. I know this because I found fossil oysters in it. This is a black shale. It's pretty thick. AS you go higher you get sandstone again. Then you get coal. Usually 3 to 5 feet thick then you get more sandstone it alternates between coal and sandstone.At the top is the tan mud that is everywhere on Earth apparently. What I can't find no matter how hard I look is fossil soil. It goes from 20 feet of sandstone to coal and there is nothing in between. It goes back and forth but there are no burrows or anything else that would tell you that the soil was ever there. Just sand. And there are zero fossil roots in the layers just before the coal. An instant change At the top of the mountain there are a few layers of fossil ferns, horsetails and cycads. They are several hundred feet above any coal or shale. They burst forth from the desolate featureless sand apparently from nowhere. No soil horizons.
Here in NC There is a few layers of grey mudstone with tiny bits of pumice in them. And many layers of welded tuff above it. If it was deep water How did the tuff get welded? I've looked hard for twenty years and the only things I've found that might be fossils were featureless blobs that might have been jelly fish. There's no ocean bed there. It goes from one to the other with nothing in between. How?
And the tuff. Is it possible to determine it's source? There are a couple places that might have been volcanoes back then. Morrow Mountain being the lower plumbing of the roots of a volcano. It if was a few thousand feet above today's level I don't see how it could have come from there. There's another spot on business 52 where basalt is coming out of the ground in a way that looks a lot like the way Yellowstone is supposed to be plumbed. But again it would have been half a mile or more straight up to the actual volcano. So where did it come from?
My idea came from reading that there were stars that had been actively stripping off "hot jupiter" type planets of their atmosphere. And then seeing Mercury with no atmosphere and too much iron. I got to thinking that might have happened here. Seeing Our gas giants having large rocky moons with lots of water. And knowing that few if any Earth sized planets have yet to be found. It made me think there could be a correlation. Unfortunately the state of our stellar system that far back is completely unknowable. We know the sequence of events but no details.
We notice other stars have qas giants close in to their stars. What if we had two of them close in our solar system? Mercury would be the core of the now evaporated gas giant. And Venus would have been one of it's moons. Our moon too was gas giant very early in the solar system with Earth being one of it's moons.
I'm sure there are holes in this idea big enough to drive a truck through. What are they?
What do yall reckon about the idea that mass/gravitational energy is solely a byprouduct of velocity? Us and everything around us is going 500,000 miles per hour. The gravity we know comes from that velocity. How right do ya figure that is?
Yes there was a world wide flood. Ocean levels rose about 400 ft in a very short time. And there were lots of Noahs. There were many creatures who could not walk to Mesopotamia. So boats were built in every continent. That's why the stories are on every continent. I don't think it was 5,000 years ago though. The evidence shows a worldwide catastrophe happened 11,500 years ago. That would have been the flood.
I am ashamed of my google skills. I knew that India and Chixalub are not in perfect alignment. I just chalked that up to 65 million years of continental drift. It just seems obvious that as the shockwaves from an impact spread out on a sphere they would all meet at the Antipode and melt some rock.
Since I can find no mention of this online I'll be the first. Flood basalts are caused by meteors impacting on the exact opposite side of Earth. The forces from impacts are concentrated at the opposing side of Earth. Anyone who has shot round targets full of sand has seen the bulge or white area on the opposite side of the sphere.
Where can you find impacts with matching basalts? The most obvious is the Indian traps. They were opposing Chixalub when they were active. Then you have the Siberian traps which line up well with The Wilkes crater in Antarctica. But what about the basalts in Washington state? A fellow member of this site found that crater not too long ago in Mongolia. A small 15 mile wide crater. So the basalts in Washington were fairly small.
That this is the cause for these basalts seems beyond obvious. At least to me it does. Sort of like the reason why Macchu Piccu was built where it was. The answer is just beyond plain to see.
Yes we will bring them back. Not from recovered dna but from birds. All the genetic info needed to make a dinosaur is inside every bird. All one needs to do is control when certain genes are expressed. They've already made a chicken with teeth. But for some incomprehensible reason they won't let one be born. And they've had a tail grow on a baby in it's egg but inexplicably killed it too. It can be done and will be done. And then it'll get weird because all animals have genes for things that they are not anymore. And some idiot will make a Homo Erectus and will get that sort of thing banned.
