Diamonds Rained Down During Ice Age
Live Science ^ | JUL 7, 2008 | Ker Than

Diamonds and precious metals found in the eastern United States might have rained down during the last Ice Age after a comet shattered over Canada and set North America ablaze, all leading to a mass die-off of animals and humans.

New chemical analyses of diamond, gold and silver found in Ohio and Indiana reveal the minerals were transported there from Canada several thousand years ago. The question is, how?

Just an accident, like the exact position of the earth, the type of sun, the size of the moon, the location of the gas giants, the sun’s position in the galaxy, the type of galaxy, on and on - all accidental.

So will Canada be demanding that Ohioans give back Canada’s rightful natural precious resources?

Not when they see the bill for storage.

Here is the meat and potatoes of this sparse meal:

“The kind of evidence we are finding does suggest that climate change at the end of the last Ice Age was the result of a catastrophic event,” said study team member Ken Tankersley, an anthropologist at the University of Cincinnati.”

See, comets are external forces and not natural processes so that explains why all climate change of a similar order must be caused by some aggravating agent.

Yeah, things are outta control up there. Next thing you know, they’ll be giving US army deserters citizenship (again), opening their borders to all of Latin America, and demanding that everyone speak French throughout all of North America.

Now they will blame global warming on the comet, and try to sue God.

They found the diamond-bearing Kimberlite pipes in Canada by retracing the path of the glaciers from the glacial deposits where the stray/transported diamonds were found.

Nothing unusual for geologists working with glacial deposits.

Same situation ocurred in Ohio, there is no reason to invoke a comet to explain it.

Plunder lost when the Great Ice Ship brought my ancestors to earth? Thor dropped his hammer through the deck causing a hole in the hull. Yeah, thats it. It all occured during the final approach to Norseland.

Canada Geese broke into a bank vault, ate the gold, silver and diamonds, flew down here for the winter and crapped the valuables all over the place. Quick everyone, get to the goose mines!

Get your timing right or you'll be seared, seared or drowned. Or pelted to death with diamonds. Maybe a trip to the shore would be better?
