Cuvier and Schaeffer’s Catastrophism! The opening of the key to the Electric Universe!
Criticized, ostracized, derided, scorned and rebuked! Cuvier and Schaeffer! These two French eccentric geniuses ranged their new practical paradigms against the sanitized teachings of the Royal Society’s consensus science!
Georges Cuvier and then later Claude Schaeffer, dared question the hidebound uniformitarian teachings demanded by the Royal Society’s geology darlings, Hutton and Lyle. These theorists demanded the world’s development was a slow evolutionary process explained by millions of years of uniformitarian, slow but steady change. The sluggish passage of time could be coloured to suit any scenario!
This Misneme eventually influenced Darwin to explain evolution as a child of slow “natural selection” that, by chance, produced superior offspring and indeed new species entirely by “survival of the fittest”. A gross simplification that has survived as a cherished dogma squirreled into every facet of modern science.
But therefore what sets our two practical French geniuses apart?
Extinct Giant Marsupials would be found on Australia’s Mornington Peninsula was a prediction I made two years ago ! Recently an elephant sized Wombat (the Marsupial Diprotodon) was discovered off Sorrento, Victoria. It was concretised in a limestone beach deposit. But why was I so certain? Along the entire Victorian coastline from Inverloch(Dinosaur beach) through to South Australia (Naracoorte limestone caves) is evidence of a vast extinction! From remnants of shellfish, trees and mega fauna there is evidence of electrical petrification on a vast scale (life forms transmuting to rock). As close by as inland Lancefield massive bolus shaped graves of these very animals, from giant Kangaroos to huge Wombats, abound. They inevitably occur in tangled heaps of destruction. In other continents, from the U.S. to Russia, similar mass mega fauna destruction sites occur.
Google a map of Australia and Indonesia! Between Indonesia’s Bali and neighbouring island Lombok is a slim ten mile sea channel! This is the start of the thousands mile long Wallace line. It is not only a dividing geological etching beneath the sea. It is also a biological division! On one side roam bouncing Kangaroos and Platypus! On the other man eating Tigers!
South is Australia. North the Philippines and India. Remarkably, this extends to both plant, fish and animal species. From sulphur crested Cockatoo on one side of the Wallace line, to Indonesian finches just across the sea channel. From fire prone Gum trees to exotic tropical rain forest Teak and Ebony. Even beneath the sea, in an area separated by a mere ten miles, this incredible separation of fish life stares you in the face! From Australasia to the Antarctic lies a unique zone of flora and fauna !
Darwin was a genius in his time. Young inquisitive years were spent, short bed cramped, on the salty survey barque H.M.S Beagle. The reward was hero status on his return to foggy London in 1836. Charles’s exciting observations of mysterious jungles and misty Brazilian mountain ranges led glamour to his jolting conclusions.
Against this rallied Bishop Usher’s crusty thoughts on a “creation” confined to a five thousand year history of the world. Usher’s viewpoint became the subject of jokes amongst the cynical, sherry sipping Victorians. All was swept before the Darwin wunderkind of the age of reason. Together with Hutton and Lyle he revolutionized concepts on the age of the world and set in concrete what is now called Uniformitarianism. To this clique, slow inexorable time, with its miniscule snail like progress, genteelly explains all change in geology and biology. Suddenly the world was millions of years old.
But Darwin got it wrong. Today the Holy Grail of most school and university education demands evolution by Darwin’s natural selection. In the annals of modern science he has the impeccable status the bible once held before we became a, computer driven, science worshiping society. On a filming expedition to county Kent in England I thoughtfully absorbed his pristine country manor. It was like an iconic national shrine. The local Guinness swilling villagers would not hear a word against him. And rightly so. He was a man for his time.
But like most human grasps for certainty his admirable and once unique concepts have been shown to be dubious. Very dubious. Actually badly wrong. And like most dogmas they lurch on until their advocates have departed old and grey.
Imagine giant wombats the size of a Rhinoceros (Diprotodon) roaming the Peninsula. Worse massive man eating kangaroos (Procptodon) sending you scuttling in terror as they roamed the countryside in packs. Or the lone marsupial lion (Thylacoleo carnifex) carrying off your newborn baby. Aboriginal mythology is rich in such stories and tells of a time when they shared Australia with these savage predators. One such legend from the Murrumbidgee River tells how, the cunning hunter Wirroowaa, with the help of the great white spirit, had defeated these giant Kangaroos that had slaughtered many of his tribe.
The existence of these huge creatures is testified to by the giant fossilized bones of these extinct mega fauna. From Lake Eyre, the Menindee lakes on the Darling River, Lake Mungo near Mildura, Cuddie springs along the Queensland border, the Narracort caves near Mount Gambia, at Keilor and Romsey near Melbourne their bones are to be found in abundance. I have no doubt that somewhere on the Mornington Peninsula hides a fossilized outcrop waiting to be discovered. These remains generally seem to be found near river beds and springs which is a similar position to the discoveries of extinct mastodons (elephants) in the United States along the Mississippi river.
But what happened to the Australian Megafauna? Again we return to Aboriginal mythology but also cleverly combine it with the latest scientific revelations and find ourselves coming to startling conclusions.
Lockheed Lightnings were abandoned in Greenland in 1942. Fifty one years later Patrick Epps reclaimed them 250 feet under the ice cap! But this very feat revealed that the layers of ice were not annual, as is presumed by modern science.
Each layer was a reflection of ice melt boundaries after each storm. Ice core studies from GISP, Camp David, Vostok and all others, rely on the paradigm of one layer equals one year. All isotopic and chemical analysis assumes this fundamental delineation.
The revealing quote comes from expedition organiser Richard Epps. He puzzlingly remarked
Who told you one layer equals one year. We dug down through fifty years of time and found thousands of layers in 250 feet.
Antarctica is the coldest place on Earth. The Katabotic winds howl around it’s gale thrashed coast. But once its green valley’s were filled with thriving Glossopteris Pine and Beach forests. How do we know this?
“Scott of the Antarctic” was the first to discover tell tale fossils on the Beardmore Glacier in 1912. Since then Petrified tree stumps and leaves, bones of dinosaurs, marsupials and fossil rich coal has been discovered in its, now, hostile environment.
According to classic geology, this previous lush age thrived millions of years ago in the
Permian age. The shifting Antarctic continent, inexorably plodding at millimetres per year, gradually moved into icy hibernation. The flora and fauna were iced over, slowly fossilized and left to slumber. Just as in Greenland and Canada with their fossil forests!
Antarctica desert but 3KM thick ice sheet?
But wait! This formation of a three kilometre thick ice sheet is no meagre feat. Antarctica contains ninety percent of the world’s ice, yet some of Antarctica’s valleys are the driest places on earth. Antarctica is technically considered a desert.
Incredibly little snow falls in the interior (five centimetres per year rain equivalent) where the ice sheet is considerably thicker. Katabotic snow storms reside only on the coast where the thinner ice. Contradiction? Nevertheless, classic Geologists argue that, eons of time can explain away these ice sheet anomalies.
Siberia, Alaska, Malta! Three mass slaughter sites! Sites littered with carcasses and skeletons captured in violent death throes. Some are petrified as rocks(Malta), some are preserved in ice(Siberia), some are surrounded and invaded by limestone(Hot Springs – Dakota). Others entombed in Bitumen(La Brea-L.A.) and peat Bogs(Snowmass- Colorado). Many are impeccably preserved whilst the bulk are shattered, dismembered and rolled(Gibraltar) by forces so violent and unseen today that we are naive to their mysterious powers!
These extinct species met with an instantaneous and horrific death. Although man was in at the death his hand was rarely involved. The modern theory of overhunting, careless burn offs, starvation and plague were never more than a trifle in this overwhelming picture of the mass destruction of species both large and small. And the last extinction occurred not so long ago and it is etched in modern mans mythology!
Let me introduce you to the remarkable French archaeologist Claude Schaeffer. He excavated Enkomi in Cyprus and Ugarit along the Syrian coastline. He also examined over forty other the Middle East sites. This was around the period from three thousand to six thousand years ago. What amazed him was that of six civilizations laid down, each was separated by a vast destruction layer up to thirty meters of ash. What could have caused this massive damage?
Certainly no conquering hoard would have left such fearful devastation. Conventional explanations would not work. A hundred forest fires could not lay down such a fearful evidence of destruction. Ugarit and Byblos, mere kilometres from Baalbek, had been ravaged by earthquake, fire, Tsunamis and inexplicable devastation numerous times. Ugarit was totally covered in debris and the coastline changed dramatically. The city was totally abandoned never to be rebuilt.
What agent could totally wipe out a civilization? Not only was one city was destroyed, but an entire network stretching from Troy to ancient Egypt.
Baalbek Lebanon and the Destruction of Baalbek Temple and the City of the Thundergods
Mankind has been repeatedly destroyed and reborn. Civilizations are everywhere buried under rubble. Ruins lie abandoned in the middle of deserts and rainforests. What happened? Modern scientific studies combined with research in archaeology and mythology is revealing dramatic new facts. The ascent and demise of nations is controlled by nature’s chaotic whims and does not lie under mankind’s own hand. Baalbek is an ancient site that reveals such shattering events altering the destiny of empires and nations.
As the eminent French archaeologist Claude Schaeffer concluded, these massive cataclysmic destructions are unknown in modern times. Will they occur again? Can we prevent them?
