The Cosmic Tusk: Black Mat in Turkey

This week Rick Firestone shared a little known 2009 paper with the Tusk and others. I was unaware of it and enjoyed reading it. The authors find a unique spike in fire at Akgol, Turkey ~13,000 years ago which they attribute to a horrendous inferno in a marsh, of all places. They cite Firestone (2007).

The Cosmic Tusk: Hancock and the CRG

Lord knows, I am no fool. I do not believe in ghosts, aliens (ancient or not), their unidentified craft, homeopathy, organic foods, cults, global warming to any degree of concern, vitamin supplements, vaccine conspiracies — or Democrats. But Hancock is on to SOMETHING! That’s why independents — him and us — came to the same

The Cosmic Tusk: Open Letter: Napier on Defant and the Joe Rogan podcast

Bill Napier sent the Tusk a note regarding Joe Rogan’s unforgettable debate-style podcast on the Younger Dryas Boundary Hypothesis. Bill’s message is posted below my rant here. His informed correction of Marc Defant’s self-styled skeptical authority on comets is priceless and instructive.

A cultural genre of all-purpose professional “skeptics,” like Defant and Shermer, have

Hancock doesn’t note his good timing, but 2017 is the 10th anniversary of the Comet Research Group’s Acapulco AGU presentations introducing
