Venus – A Young Earth

Overwhelming physical evidence has been present for thirty-seven years that Venus is a hot new planet, born from an impact on the solid, highly deuterated, methane gas hydrate Jupiter 6,000 years BP. As explained in my previous post, impacts of large bodies on Jupiter trigger enormous nuclear fusion explosions which eject the full range of atoms in their known relative abundances, forming the terrestrial planets. Due to the great heat of these explosive ejections the atoms are reduced to a plasma comprising electrons, protons and neutrons, from which similar abundances quickly reformed, but with the nuclear decay clocks of radioactive isotopes reset to zero. For example, the radiogenic isotope 40Ar and the primordial 36Ar and 38Ar are present in the atmosphere of Venus in approximately equal amounts, whereas on Earth 40Ar is 300 times more abundant than the primordial isotopes. The large amount of 40Ar on Earth is due to the decay of potassium (40K) with half-life of 1.248 billion years since the formation of the Earth, 3.9 billion years Before the Present (BP). This ratio favors the recent primordial origin of proto-Venus, since there has been little time for the 40K on Venus to decay. In fact, most of the 40Ar on Venus was probably captured from Mars and the Earth during encounters which circularized its orbit.

Also, the hydrogen isotope ratio (D/H) on Venus is 150 times the terrestrial value, including the hydrogen in the oceans. Interestingly, cosmologists believe that the amount of deuterium present in the universe was formed in the Big Bang. But this hypothesis assumes that there were no post-Big Bang processes that could produce significant amounts of deuterium. The explosion, or Little Bang, out of which Venus was born was exactly that – a post-Big Bang event, as were those from which Mars and Earth were born. Thus, the deuterium present today has little to tell us about the initial conditions of the universe.

Venus today demonstrates that the heavy elements quickly condensed to form what will become the mantle of a complete terrestrial planet. Its current near circular orbit is the result of multiple close encounters with Mars and Earth, which raised the Tharsis Bulge and the Himalayas, resulting in the uplifting of Venus’ ‘continents’ Aphrodite and Ishtar Terra, which display no volcanic calderas. Its interior is completely molten with a thin basalt layer less than two kilometers thick floating on top, evidenced by its lack of rotation. Proto-Venus’ enormous internal heat is manifested by raw incandescent lava, > 2000º C, lying in myriads of cracks in the surface, fleeting views of which by the Pioneer Venus Large Probe Infrared Radiometer (LIR) produced high intensity erratic signals dismissed as window heater faults. If a camera had been used, the origin would have been immediately recognized. The molten interior, of course, precludes any magnetic field.

Up-welling vs down-welling radiation measurements from five independent Pioneer Venus probes all agree that proto-Venus is radiating 20 watts per square meter, 250 times more energy than the Earth. Integral to the cooling process, the primary transfer of heat is from the surface to the lower cloud layer, accomplished by the high velocity jetting of sulfur gases from more than one million ‘small domes’ directly to 48 km altitude where S8 crystalizes in three forms, allotropes, which comprise the lower cloud layer. This unique, 2 km thick, roiling, mixed-phase stratiform cloud layer is the most ubiquitous atmospheric feature on the planet. Sulfur compounds raining back onto the surface evaporate, controlling the surface temperature to just above the boiling point of sulfur.

The massive lower atmosphere, primarily sulfur molecules, SN, and carbon sulfide, CS, currently mistaken for CO2, capped by the lower cloud layer is the source of the high surface pressure, 92 bars. Temperature vs pressure for the descent of four Pioneer Venus probes in completely different regions of the planet agreed to within two degrees. It comprises a mass-flow environment with a different pressure versus altitude relationship than the upper atmosphere, unlike anything possible on an ancient planet with a well-mixed atmosphere. Failure to understand this was demonstrated when the trajectory of the dying Magellan probe experienced an atmospheric density twice that calculated assuming a hydrostatic pressure profile based on the Venus’ surface pressure and a composition of carbon dioxide. This layer will settle to the surface of the planet as it cools, adding to the existing mantle.

The temperature and pressure immediately above the lower cloud layer are similar to those at the surface of the Earth. The volatile elements currently found above the lower cloud layer represent a tiny fraction of the total produced by the 6,000 year (BP) impact explosion on Jupiter, the remainder of which orbit invisibly in the inner solar system awaiting capture. These will form the lithosphere, crust, oceans, atmosphere, flora and fauna of a new terrestrial planet. Loosely bound bodies composed primarily of water have been observed falling into the upper atmosphere of the Earth at the rate of thousands per day by the UV cameras on the NASA Polar satellite, but the scientists who discovered them have been ostracized by uniformitarian scientists who fail to understand that the solar system has been completely changed in the last 6,000 years.

A relatively simple, inexpensive, mission to verify this hypothesis is proposed. Two small probes, for redundancy, would be released from an orbiter (or even a flyby), each carrying visible light cameras which would photograph the surface of Venus once they descend below the opaque lower cloud layer and the red haze (CS crystals) to ~30 km altitude, where temperature and pressure are not severe. These photographs will reveal incandescent lava in surface cracks detected by the Pioneer Venus Large Probe Interferometer (LIR) and rejected. Another camera would be used to photograph microscopic images of sulfur crystals collected on glass plates as the probes fell through the lower cloud layer. The images would be transmitted to the bus and back to the Earth.


In the year 687 BC the Lord finished his work of creating a new Earth, and the planets Mars, Mercury and Venus, which He had used to do this, termed sinning angels, were sent to Tartarus, places of restraint, their current orbits, so they would not come close to the Earth again. This was announced through the prophet Isaiah who lived at this time.

Isaiah 65: 17-18  For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create.
