The mammoths relate to Flores how, exactly?
Such a seabed movement would have caused vast Tsunamis the evidence of which would be very visable today.
The mammoths relate to Flores how, exactly?I'm suggesting that the comet went from Siberia, over Greenland, over the USA to California creating the La Brea Tar Pits, over the Pacific, over Hawaii, and finally over north east Australia, creating a 6km high rise of the lithosphere all the way. This not only allowed the peopling of Australia, but also the USA from the south west.It's pretty far out, I know.
The largest comets are only around 40-odd km in diameter - they'd be too small to have the gravitational effect you suggest
Never mind the Hobbits, how did the trolls get there?
To view a much more lively debate on this theory, visit Sciforums.com in the Astronomy section and also 'Gravity Problem Solved' in the Pseudoscience section.
I don't remember the Hobbits going to Flores! Was this during the quest for the one ring?
"The only problem with the theory is proving that a giant comet fly-by could create this large flexure of the lithosphere."Not quite.One point we have made in the past is that we know how strong gravity is and we know how stiff rocks are so we know how much a comet would lift the lithosphere, and it's not enough. "Iīm carefully considering the case of the Sunīs gravity gradient and the amount of force produced. I think that this alone wouldnīt be enough " Well spotted; how many times did we need to tell you that?However there's still another problem. Water is less stiff than rock so you wouldn't make a land bridge- you would make a tidal surge.
You just donīt understand the subtlety of what Iīm proposing.
QuoteYou just donīt understand the subtlety of what Iīm proposing.I think you are confusing 'subtlety' with 'vagueness' or 'lack of substance', actually.
And your another one
If it was good I'm sure we would have a link by now.
And what is induced convection? What force keeps it going in such a viscous medium as the Earth's mantle? How would a single impulse have any effect? When are you going to stop bringing in red herrings?
