Water, Xenon Lost from Mars

The Cyclic Catastrophism scenario began around 3700 BC.  It reveals one hundred 14.4 year close encounters of the living, green, planet Mars, when it still had its ancient atmosphere.  During these encounters its entire crust, oceans, atmosphere and biosphere were transferred to the Earth.  In order to maintain the stability of the pairing, it was necessary to sustain fixed tidal bulges on both planets. Mars was tidally captured in a geostationary orbit above the Himalayas (Mt. Kailash), where its added moment forced the reorietation of spin axis of the Earth’s lithosphere to what is now central Canada during each encounter.  This meant that the entire lithosphere was able to slide as a unit on the asthenosphere, while the interior, the mantle and core remained oriented normally.

Outflow Channels

In a similar manner, the Tharsis Bulge on Mars forced the spin axis of its lithosphere to remain oriented toward the Earth.  As Mars approached the Earth, the water in the northern hemisphere of Mars  was rapidly drawn toward its north pole by the tidal effect of the Earth, through what are known as ‘outflow channels’ . These were typically thousands of km long, hundreds of km wide and several kilometers deep.  As shown in Figure  1, they appear fully-sized as water suddenly flooding out of subsurface aquifers at the left. They flood in relatively straight courses with very little meandering. Their calculated volumes exceed, by several orders of magnitude, the largest rivers on Earth.

Oceanus Borealis

At the beginning of the Vedic period (3717 BC), the northern hemisphere of Mars was the same elevation as the rest of the planet except for the Tharsis Bulge on the equator. Today the entire northern third of Mars is some 7 km below the planet’s datum due to the enormous mass of rock and iron ejected during its geostationary encounters during the Vedic Period.  Having no other explanation, scientists today believe that the northern ocean (Oceanus Borealis) formed due to the water running ‘down slope’ toward the north, but cyclic catastrophism explains that these enormous floods were the result of the tidal force of the more massive Earth each time Mars approached and was captured in geostationary orbit. This process is described in the Rg Veda, where the ‘world’, Mars, is incorrectly translated “universe” :

At first this (universe) was not anything. There was neither sky, nor Earth nor air. Being non-existent, it resolved ‘let me be.’ It became heated. From that heat smoke was produced. It again became heated. From that heat fire was produced. It again became heated. From that heat light was produced. It again became heated. From that heat rays were produced. It again became heated. From that heat blazes (or fogs) were produced. It again became heated. It became condensed like a cloud. It clove its bladder. That became the sea.

This rapid tidal flow resulted in the northern ocean (Oceanus Borealis) on Mars, the outlines of which can be clearly seen in NASA photo mosaics of its northern hemisphere (Figure 2).

Mars’ Lost Crust

More slowly, the tidal effect of the Earth melted subsurface rock at Mars north pole and once mobile drew the magma upward, first appearing as the mythological ‘golden or world egg’ in many ancient mythologies. It eventually expanded to become an island at the north pole of Mars which is quite promenent to this day, rising some 3 km above the surrounding terrain, topped by the northern ice cap.

Sudden convulsions occurred within Mars as it orbited the Earth. These were caused by alignments with the Moon and with eclipses, each of which lasted some 30 to 40 minutes, blasting enormous

masses of rock into space, resulting in the northern third of the planet now being 7 km below the datum.  Most of this rock and soil was blasted to the Earth.  The rocks and red  soil ejected during one hundred 14.4-year geostationary encounters cover our continents with hundreds of meters of Martian crustal material. Geologists estimating ages for these rocks are completely thrown off by magnetic field reversals due to the reorienting of the lithosphere during the Mars encounters, believing these are the result of very ancient continental drift or even actual reversals of the Earths geomagnetic field.

Mars’ Lost Atmosphere

Further dating errors result from using K (potassium)-Ar (argon) or U (uranium)-Pb (lead) dating.  The former method suffers from the influx of most of the  Martian atmosphere during the Vedic period (Figure 3). Uranium dating is done with rocks which fell from the much more ancient planet Mars, probably ~700 Ma (million years) older than Earth, based on the ages of meteorites from Mars and the oldest native rocks on Earth. The unique ages of each terrestrial planet was demonstrated when proto-Venus was created by an enormously energetic impact on Jupiter – witnessed in the ancient texts of many cultures.

Mars’ Xenon Loss

The NASA rovers on Mars have been attempting to prove that it lost its atmosphere, including all of its water very gradually over the last 3 to 4 billion years, by escaping into space. The latest means of studying the atmospheric loss has been the study of Xenon by the Curiosity rover’s SAM (Sample Analysis at Mars) instrument. Xenon, because it is a noble gas that does not chemically combine with any other elements, is ideal for a study of the atmosphere.  Moreover it has a number of isotopes, that is, Xenon atoms with slightly different weights (different numbers of neutrons in its nucleus).  As the atmosphere is lost to space the lighter weight Xenon isotopes should escape faster than the heavier ones.  Another unique aspect of Xenon is that it is very heavy, with an atomic weight twice that of iron.  In fact it is a wonder that any of this heavy gas would rise at all.  The xenon experiment required months of careful testing at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.  The results indicated exactly the opposite of the previously hypothesized, billion-year gradual loss of the Martian atmosphere, although not stated quite so strongly in NASA RELEASE 15-055, March 31, 2015 :

“The SAM measurement of the ratios of the nine xenon isotopes traces a very early period in the history of Mars when a vigorous atmospheric escape process was pulling away even the heavy xenon gas. The lighter isotopes were escaping just a bit faster than the heavy isotopes.”

In the current uniformitarian view of the solar system, a “vigorous atmospheric escape process”, such as occurred during the Vedic Period, can only be imagined to have taken place when the planet was in its formative stages.

Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
