This book asserts the proposition that
all major extinction events in the history of the planet are due to the effects
of cosmic impacts.
This book also asserts the proposition
that a rapidly moving (geologically speaking) Indian continent was created 65
million years ago (MYA) by the effects of a cosmic impact at Chicxulub in
Mexico, which was on the opposite side of the world. Furthermore, this book
posits the idea that some of the Indian continent was uplifted out of the
blasted remains of the Australian continent's tail (Who knew that the
Australian continent even had a tail?).
This book also says that the new Indian
continent was created 1,000 miles away from the location where the Standard
Theory says it was located. And the book creates a whole new mechanism for
continental formation (including Siberia, Western
Antarctica, Eastern North America, South America and India), the
formation and movement of hotspots, the reason for deep sea trenches, island
arcs, etc., etc.
Does this series of assertions sound a
bit too incredible? How can the science of paleogeology have come up with so
many propositions that need correction?
A skeptical reader may well wonder
about the seriousness and the credibility of these new assertions. A skeptical
reader may well wonder if this book is not just another unsubstantiated journey
into the realm of fantasy, such as "Chariots of the Gods," "Worlds in
Collision" or so many other sensational, but unrealistic, books.
I believe that this book will stand up
to hard-nosed, skeptical analysis. Furthermore, I believe that within 5 to 20
years, the theories proposed in this book will have replaced the Standard
For those skeptical readers who want
more proof before they are willing to spend the time to read the book in its
normal order, I suggest turning to Chapter 8. In this chapter, I describe how
the Indian continent was formed 65 MYA, how it traveled and how it came to rest
in a two-stage event after colliding with Asia.
The most compelling part of the
description in Chapter 8 is the analysis of the debris field that was left
behind by the creation and movement of the Indian continent. This debris field
is composed of the islands and peninsulas of the region between Asia and
Australia (except for the Indonesian islands, which were formed by the
Once you have read about the reasons
for the debris field and the physical evidence that has been left behind (and
is completely unexplained by the Standard Theory), you will never look at that
area in the same way again. As you read this book, please exercise your
skepticism. All I ask is that you subject the Standard Theory to that same
level of skeptical thinking.
This book was written
during two separate time periods. The first 14 chapters were written in 2011.
Chapter 15 and Appendix I through Appendix VIII were written in 2012 and 2013.
Revisions to the first 14 chapters (revised and still being entered in 2013)
