Geological Confirmation of Cyclic Catastrophism
A Geological Dilemma
For decades geologists have been quietly struggling to explain the motion of the lithosphere, the outer shell of the Earth, relative to the interior or mantle. Differential motion of the two should not constitute a mystery since plate tectonics allows plates in the lithosphere to move in response to local forces. Thus a slippery or lower viscosity layer, called the asthenosphere (without strength), is an accepted feature. However, as more study has been done, including measurements from satellites it has become clear that the entire lithosphere is apparently moving westward as a unit, in a unique path known to geologists as the ‘toroidal field of degree 1’. Geological clues to this are the movement of ocean island hotspots and the fact that subduction, the over-riding of the coastal continental plates by the ocean bottom plate occurs predominantly on their western coastlines. The most intractable dilemma lies in the rapid motion of the lithosphere along a path which is essentially a great circle (Fig. 1), implying that it rotated as a unit about an axis 30 degrees from the current north pole.
The analyses do not give the actual velocity, but favor a surprisingly high value of 13.4 cm/year. This high a speed contradicts every theoretical calculation of the viscosity of the asthenosphere based on rheology and suggests that it is a remnant of a very recent world- wide event. New S/P analyses of seismic signals developed by the petroleum industry are being adopted by geologists, allowing them to see deeper and have found evidence favoring much lower viscosity at the base of the lithosphere. The controversy currently hinges on whether this apparently sinusoidal motion violates the ‘standard model’ of geology or should just be termed a ‘mean lithospheric motion’. because there are a few plate boundaries that deviate from the path. Several ‘standard model’ explanations concerning the various flows fall back on the old uniformitarian dating estimates from a million years to the Permian, 250 to 298 million years BP. However, it is obvious that this uniform motion of the entire lithosphere along great circle at an angle of 30 degrees to the present equator must be the result of a recent, global event that effected the entire lithosphere.
Geologists do not want to admit this because such an event violates the very principle of the uniformitarian paradigm on which the the field is based. At least, the author of the paper containing Figure 1 dared to offer the opinion: ” … even if the occurrence of a westerly polarized lithosphere motion cannot be considered at present a controversial phenomenon, we feel that its origin is not yet completely clear.” The most cogent thinking from the geologic community has been the mention of the potential role of ‘tidal drag’ on the lithosphere due to an orbiting body, say by the Moon, the orbit of which extends to +/- 28 degrees declination, but its tidal effect is many orders of magnitude too small to have any significant effect on the lithosphere.
Cyclic Catastrophism Solves the Dilemma
The Cyclic Catastrophism scenario, originally published in 1996, began with four sudden, complete overturnings or inversions of the spin axis of the lithosphere due to close passes of massive bodies to the Earth. The first two delineated the Younger Dryas stadial and the second two occurred within a single century, just after 4000 BC. The latter were due to close passes of proto-Venus shortly after its birth from an impact on Jupiter. Each pass exerted a transient tidal impulse on the Tibetan-Himalayan Complex, a huge raised mass anomaly imbedded in the lithosphere. The effects of these inversions were related to Solon the Greek by Egyptian priests at Sais, according to Plato’s Conversations of Timeaus and Critius. These inversions enormously increased the temperature of the asthenosphere, lowering its viscosity in preparation for the subsequent long-term encounters with Mars.
Soon after this, proto-Venus gravitationally ‘sheparded’ Mars, at that date full of life in a Venus-like orbit (violating the habitable zone concept), to the vicinity of the Earth where both entered orbits similar ot those shown in Figure 3. Then Mars was captured from the orbit shown on the night of Nov. 1 when it became tidally locked onto the Tibetan-Himalayan Complex, directly above Mt. Kailas (31 N Lat.), called “Indra’s home on Earth”, a meaning-full term in in the Rg Veda. This huge inertial mass linked to the lithosphere by the Tibetan-Himalayan Complex, resulted in Mt. Kailas, therefore the entire lithosphere of the Earth on which we live, rotating along with Mars in the ecliptic plane, the plane of the solar system, throughout each 14.4 year kalpa.
The moment due to Mars’ great mass forced the lithosphere to rotate more slowly than the mantle (tidal drag) and about an axis in what is now central Canada (61º N, 100º W) with the asthenosphere, having been heated by two recent overturnings (inversions) by proto-Venus, acting as a very low viscosity bearing. In this process the excess orbital angular momentum of Mars was ‘stored’ in the rotation of the lithosphere and released 14.4 years (a manvantara in the Rg Veda) later at the vernal equinox, when it re-entered its holding orbit (Figure 3) where it remained for 15.6 years.
Mars orbited with the lithosphere only some 33,500 km above the Himalayas. This enormous mass so close to the Earth for a total of 1,500 years, completely changed the surface of our planet to a degree which cannot be imagined in modern times. For example, during each kalpa land masses, such as southern India, normally in the northern hemisphere spent the entire time in the reverse magnetic field of the Earth, therefore rock bodies extruded during these encounters (kalpas in the Rg Veda), for example each step of the Deccan Traps, acquired reverse magnetic field orientations. This is currently believed to show that the Indian plate was in the position of the Reunion ‘hotspot’ when the Deccan Traps were formed, consequently dating them at 66 million years BP. Each time Mars was released (for 15.6 years) the lithosphere went back to its normal alignment and rotational speed but, as evidenced by Figure 1, retains evidence of the ‘Tidal Drag’ induced by Mars between 3687 and 687 BC. The details of the releases are found in another epistle on this site.
The slower rotation of the lithosphere during each kalpa is corroborated by the archaeological discovery of calendars with both 360 and 365.25 days per year in the oldest cultures. The slower rotation meant that (a) the lithosphere moved westward relative to the mantle at 24 km/hr, but at an angle of 31 degrees relative to the current equator, as clearly seen in Figure 1. This angle was due to the tidal southward displacement of Mt. Kailas to the ecliptic plane, in which it remained during each 14.4-year encounter. The forcing of Mt. Kailas to the ecliptic plane resulted in the northern rotation axis of the lithosphere moving to what is now central Canada (61 N, 100 W) and the south pole of this axis to the southern pacific as indicated in Figure 1. The primarily westward motion of the lithosphere relative to the low viscosity asthenosphere resulted in subduction zones on the western coasts of most large continents recognized by geologists in modern times. More significantly, the continuing fresh flow of magma from the hot asthenosphere was drawn upward and intruded into the interiors of the continents wherever they were weak or shallow forming what are currently called plutons, many of which still extend too deep to be detected seismically. The geological term for this process of mountain-building is orogeny. The same asthenospheric rock that produced basalt at ocean rifts, cooled slowly within the continents producing beautiful lower density granite mountain ranges that made the continents more buoyant, further increasing the space for life. Granite is found nowhere else in the solar system and its origin has never been understood in conventional geology. This process raised the continents and reclaimed vast areas for additional life. Some geologists understand this process, but believe it occurred million or billions of years ago because they are unaware of cyclic catastrophism.
Indeed, there is not a single geological feature on the Earth that remains from before the Mars encounters. The four overturnings of the lithosphere caused the oceans to flow across entire continents, each burying the existing land with additional layers of saline ocean-bottom material dozens of km deep. The last two encounters of the still liquid, flaming, out-gassing proto-Venus which occurred after 4000 BC produced the K-T extinction marked by the iridium spike found around the world, resulting in the final demise of dinosaur life. As explained in many posts on this site, all the soil, rocks, oceans, atmosphere and flora of Mars were blasted to the Earth over the 3,000 years (3687 to 687 BC). The lower layers are only recently becoming recognized and given the name Mid Lithosphere Discontinuities (MLD), but remain unexplained by geologists.
Included in the material blasted from Mars are a few stumbling-blocks “designedly dropped”? Argon in the atmosphere and the ubiquitous zircon ‘dust’ scattered over the entire surface. Failing to understand how the Earth was completely re-created in the last 6,000 years, scientists use these, which characterize Martian dates, not Earth dates. This has resulted in a fictitious dating for the proto-Venus encounters at 66 million years BP and the entire advent of modern living plants and animals are imagined to have ‘evolved’ throughout this Cenezoic period up to the present. The presence of Mars completely changed the shapes of the continents and the distances between them by the extrusion of magma through the mid ocean rifts and its indirect tidal effect raised the pacific area now known as the ‘ring of fire’. This entire process is summed up in a single Biblical verse:
Genesis 1:9 KJV: And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry [land] appear: and it was so.
Due to faulty dating methods, the 3,000-year period of shifting of Mt. Kailas back and forth to a temporary ‘equator’ between 3687 and 687 BC, which created during which our world was created, is currently attributed to the early Cenezoic (66 million years BP to the present), as stated in the following from Britannica article. “The global climate was much warmer during the early Cenozoic than it is today, and equatorial-to-polar thermal gradients were less than half of what they are at present. Cooling of Earth began about 50 million years ago and, with fluctuations of varying amounts, has continued inexorably to the present interglacial climatic period. It is to be noted that a unique feature of the Cenozoic was the development of glaciation on the Antarctic continent about 35 million years ago and in the Northern Hemisphere between 3 million and 2.5 million years ago. Glaciation left an extensive geologic record on the continents in the form of predominantly unconsolidated tills and glacial moraines, which in North America extend in a line as far south as Kansas, Illinois, Ohio, and Long Island, New York, and on the ocean floor in the form of ice-rafted detritus dropped from calving iceberg.” This ‘imaginary’ Cenezoic is currently being used to invent a doomsday scenario due to the increase in CO2.
The great circle that was Mt. Kailas’s equatorial path during each encounter, now defines the great circle of the current, mysterious westward path of lithosphere motion shown in Figure 1. The motion measured today is the due to the gradual decline of this process, which only ceased in 687 BC. During each Mars encounter, there were no seasonal variations on the Earth. As a result, central Canada became covered with a huge continental glacier during each 14.4-year encounter, which extended as far south as Kansas and Pennsylvania. The glacier expanded and retreated one hundred times between 3687 and 687 BC. The recent presence of this glaciation is evidenced by the isostatic rebound at that location, the fastest in the world. In spite of this evidence, conventional geologists insist that this huge glacier existed some 20,000 years ago, during the last ‘ice age’ and have invented a new process called ‘delayed isostatic rebound’.
The few locations on Earth where the slowing effect on the lithosphere is not so obvious, are due to the direct tidal force of Mars on the area surrounding its nadir point, Mt. Kailas. This resulted in diastrophism – the cyclic uplifting and flooding of a huge tidal sea that surrounded the Himalayas during each encounter. At each capture of Mars the Arabian Sea suddenly moved eastward drowning a multitude of animal life which are the source of the petroleum reserves in the area. During each encounter Mars drew the Arabian peninsula eastward forcing the subduction of the Arabian Sea plate beneath west coast of Iran forming the mountain range its Eastern coast.
