Re: Massive Impact Crater Found In Greenland

It surely is an impact crater, but on site mineral analysis awaits to confirm. The timeline is c.12,000-3,000,000 years, so it's understandable that hope it's a Younger Dryas impact crater is high, but it's a big date range, until it isn't. I doubt there will be any shortage of funding to answer tho...

Re: Problematic Discoveries

Shawomet, You will be relieved to hear that the possible artifact you mention and show is not one Jack analyzed as "provable Pleistocene," though a good number of the rocks posted on the Rock Art Museum site were. Jack did state that he was not sure about the piece but that I should hang on to it. ...

Re: Meteor

A remote location of impact has nothing to do with the importance of the event. (Except. maybe, in the eyes of a US TV evening news editor.) How many humans saw the Gulf of Mexico impact? No, remoteness has nothing to do with the "importance" of the event. But it does have to do with the odds any p...

Re: Problematic Discoveries

Here is a surface find for which it can safely be said it is "provable Pleistocene" in age: https://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2011/06/110622-mammoth-bone-oldest-art-americas-science/ You cannot say that about the so-called art shown at the portable rock art page. You cannot, generally, provid...

Re: Problematic Discoveries

Shawomet, Thanks for your comments. Jack has described quite a few artifacts seen on the Portable Rock Museum site gallery as "provable Pleistocene." I think your blanket rejection of all the pieces as natural rocks may be premature. One example, the very pure red jasper hammerstone (grouped with a...

Hello Cicumspice, Shawomet, Minimalist, and Simon21, I appreciate your taking the time to review the subject images posted on the Portable Rock Art Museum site. I am certainly not surprised at the unanimous reaction to those images. Granted, some of the images are not crisp, but many are in proper ...

Re: Meteor

I've collected meteorites for 35 years, so maybe I can fill in for E.P. now and then, lol. This particular event was notable, but I think it generated bogus hype because of the nearby base. And, as noted, not many people around to witness it. There may be fragments on the ground, and there is a dedi...
