Mars Too Salty?
It is truly amazing. After seeing an article on Mars this morning including a statement by Andrew Knoll (Harvard), one of the researchers on the Spirit and Opportunity team, I Googled ‘Mars salty’ and got 49,800 responses. One statement leads to the proverbial five minutes of fame. Scientists should be more disciplined than to make broad statements about the entire past of a planet based on a few ‘scratches’ on its surface, which will subsequently be proven incorrect.
In truth, ‘Mars’ was full of animal and vegetable life, oceans and rain as recently as 6,000 years ago. It circled the Sun in an orbit similar to that of Venus today. It was then ejected into an orbit that crossed the orbit of the Earth by the newly created proto-Venus, born out of a massive impact on Jupiter. The resulting resonant orbits of Earth, ‘Mars,’ and proto-Venus set up a periodic sequence of events which lasted some 3,000 years. This involved the capture of ‘Mars’ in a geosynchronous orbit of the Earth for fifteen years followed its release into a planetary orbit (around the Sun) for an equal period of time. These cosmic encounters were witnessed by one hundred generations of mankind and the descriptions of the observed events were the subjects of the ancient myths of every culture during that period. When the two orbiting bodies, ‘Mars’ and Earth, passed through alignments with the Moon, moreso with the Sun and Moon combined, ‘Mars’ was wracked by internal convulsions which caused the expulsions of massive rock bodies into space from its interior, which today form the near earth asteroids and comets, all meteorites and meteor showers. The same convulsions blasted vast amounts of water from its oceans and atmosphere into space, most of which crossed the short distance, some 33,000 km to the Earth. Great deluges fell in the Tibetan basins, and when sufficient water had collected, these basins were breached and enormous masses of water flowed through the Himalayas to the sea. The vast amount of salt in these basins is the residual of the Martian water that fell there.
After the hundredth encounter, this formerly live planet ‘Mars’ split into two pieces. The solid iron core exited its mantle through what is now believed to be a ‘canyon,’ Valles Marineris, and after interacting with proto-Venus for a few centuries became the ‘planet’ Mercury. At the same time the mantle collapsed in on itself and drifted out to become the ‘planet’ now known as Mars, which has only a liquid core. In this way the depleted planet was safely removed from the vicinity of the Earth for evermore.
The final result of the one hundred captures of ‘Mars’ was to transfer all of its atmosphere, oceans and vegetable life (manna, which contained the seeds of innumerable species) to the Earth, thereby replenishing our world at the expense of another, smaller and more ancient one. The surface of Mars being studied by the rover teams today is that of a recently ravaged planet, much of whose water was evaporated, leaving the salt, and the interior of which has been overturned, retaining little on the surface to reflect its recent abundance of life. It is no surprise that scientists, ignorant of these events, might conclude that it could not support life. In the coming centuries, astronauts will undoubtedly find signs of recent life in the form of tree roots and possibly even artifacts of superior intelligent civilizations, but little remains to be found out about the history of the planet beyond the detailed story told by one hundred generations of mankind in the ancient myths.
Any sentient being, given the notion that a single event, the birth of a new planet triggered this 3,000 year period of cosmic chaos, that ‘Mars’ underwent exactly one hundred encounters with the Earth, providing our planet with invaluable resources just during the period that mankind populated the Earth, and that the debris of those encounters was safely removed from the vicinity of the Earth forever, has to consider that a superior power and intelligence was behind the whole process. This is particularly true when one realizes that the configuration of the two planets during the encounter resulted in the north pole of ‘Mars’ remaining facing the Earth to induce stationary tides on both bodies (minimum energy dissipation), which made multiple encounters necessary to capture all the ‘Martian’ water, because the nature of tidal forces is that only the water on the side the planet facing the earth could be captured.
As a result, the catastrophism I propose, leads inevitably to the intrusion of a superior intelligence into the world. The refusal of the academic world to acknowledge this was prophesied 2000 years ago:
(2 Peter 3:3-7) Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men
