"Makes sense. I noticed the old thread was locking out new post."

It's an old thread. These old threads were locked when JohnRob made the last major format change to FR.

"We can either look it as a second start of the solar system or, maybe the rotation, of the solar system around the galaxy, causes it to pass some area in the galaxy that cause this Catastrophy."

LOL. All kind of possibilities. My favorite is a huge comet with a long period.

Cool theory. Here I was thinking that smoking killed off the big guys.

"Zecharia Sitchin He more than anyone else, brought the Planet X theories to the forefront. Taking the Veloscosvy thoughts about Venus and discounting them as not scientifically possible, he developed a theory based on the Planet X event cycles."

That's VELIKOVSKY.

This is one of the more interesting crackpot ideas. One feature of earth's year, etc. is precession of the equinox, which could be explained by a second sun in a 26,000 year orbit. Binary stars are very common.

From an interview with Will Wright featured in the August 2006 edition of Discover Magazine:

"You've modeled planetary dynamics, ant colonies, even the way players play your games. What's left?

Do you know about fitness landscapes? It's the idea that you can map evolutionary fitness. If you were this genetic combination, you'd be this fit. If you were that genetic combination, you'd be that fit. Any given population is basically climbing the fitness landscape. It's cross correlated: The shape of the landscape is dependent on what all the organisms are doing, so even as an organism evolves, the landscape is always changing.

I did some modeling of this -- fairly long term models of creatures evolving on different landscapes. Interestingly, the results I got were very similar to punctuated equilibrium [an evolutionary theory championed by Niles Eldridge and Steven Jay Gould]. You'd see regions of stability for long periods of time, then diversity would go up, then suddenly the whole system would go into chaos, you'd have this mass die-off, and then it would go back up pretty rapidly."

I can't help but wonder if the periodicity is ~26 million years...
