That's what happens when you shift the north pole from Hudson Bay to where it is now.

Very nice, but the article is over 20 years old. No serious scholar today believes in complete uniformitarianism.
Stephen Jay Goulds theory of "Punctuated Equilibrium" has completely displaced it.
This article is so out of date that the daring young Dr. Gould cited for his early articles, has since become one of the most famous Natural Scientists of all time, and has died of old age.
The question is: "What would kill all the 6 foot beavers, and leave all the 2 foot beavers?
Once you have an answer that fits both, then you have the answer to what happened.
I think one could compare this event with Hillary being elected President of the United States.

My theory is that this epoch ending occurrence was caused by:
If the earth and the oceans were as old as some scientists say, then the sediment and mineral deposits in the ocean would be vastly larger than what we find.
It has been calculated by many scientists how much deposits we have in the ocean and how deep the sediment is. We also have calcuated how much deposits are run off into the ocean each year. From that we can calculate how long the oceans have been around by adding up the yearly deposit runoff until we get the total deposits in the ocean.
Nearly all minerals and deposits calculations add up to between 5000 and 10000 years of runoff.

Bump for later.
Paleontologists the world over know that something catastrophic happened to the large mammals roaming the world during the Pleistocene Epoch. Woolly mammoths, mastodons, toxodons, sabre-toothed tigers, woolly rhinos, giant ground sloths, and many other large Pleistocene animals are simply no longer with us.
But the Moose is. The Moose is the last of the Pleistocene creatures. And the Moose is still very much alive.
Anotherinteresting thing is that a while back, Discovery had something about the Pyramids. The Great Pyramid has a shaft that goes from the center, to the edge, and the sky is plainly visible looking up the shaft.
According to texts, the shaft is supposed to point towards "The dark spot in the sky that never moves". The final destination of the soul of whoever got entombed in the pyramid.
Trouble is, in the northern hemisphere, there's only one point in the sky that never moves. But it ain't dark. A very bright star called Polaris sits there.

And how long will it be until some liberal bastion of higher learning gets a million dollar grant to prove that it was caused by second hand cigarette smoke??

To all of you posters who are interested in this stuff. Go get Bill Bryson's new book, "A Short History of Just about Everything."
He spent three years talking to real bright folks and translating the data into something that most of us can understand.
