    Thank you for your response and good luck on your writing efforts.

    Turns out, sand formation may be more complex than one might originally suspect. And, after doing some more looking around I discovered there are actually several different types of sand that make up the Sahara itself. It's not uniform at all. Never thought about it but I suppose it makes sense.

    I gather you're also a follower of many of Velikovsky's ideas and his interpretations of Biblical an other ancient scripts. Have you looked at the 9th plague, the plague of darkness in Egypt? Utter darkness, a darkness that could be felt??? A cloud of sand cold be felt. Not to mention it had to have been exceedingly thick. Lasted either three days or nine days depending on the source.

    Interesting links. Thanks for adding them to the thread.

    I notice you're a writer but of course I don't know what your background is. Something occurred to me and as a matter of curiosity I wonder if you've ever looked into the possibility of massive sand blows contributing to the creation of the Sahara? I read a foreign published work within the last day or two that made some compelling arguments re volcanism, massive volcanism, being the culprit responsible for the "green glass" and the abrupt changes to North Africa. Could it be part of the answer?

    There is no shortage of theories and they all have their adherents and furnish evidence, such as it is, to support them. I seem to recall the Bible describes an event, obviously during historical times, when the earth wobbled like a drunk! Eyewitness accounts??? Generally considered fairly reliable evidence.

    I was watching on PBS within the last month, the reason the rainforests in the Amazon exist is due to the dust kicked up in the Sahara desert in Africa that travels around the world, creates rainclouds and drops.

    I watched that same documentary with interest but became frustrated at the end because they never tried to make a connection re what the "rain forest" would have looked like when the Sahara was largely covered with shallow seas. Scouring the web revealed several efforts to make a connection that never made it into "prestigious journals". Not sure what to make of that. Maybe if they blamed humans for draining the Sahara they could have gotten published???

    In any case, and just like this guy found, most conclusions were the South American rain forest was savanna type landscape when the Sahara was wetter. It becomes even more interesting when investigating a cause for this "climate change". This of course happened well past the end of the last glaciation??? Whatever. The theories run the gamut from pole shifts to alien terra formers. From most accounts the change was relatively swift, in geologic time.

    The scientific community™ is nothing if not frustrating. They apparently go as far as the money and no farther. Maybe journal publishers can share the blame since they are the ones who select studies and research that make the cut? In a publish or perish environment whaddaya gonna do, but I digress...

  • Rep. Steve Stockman, Texas: Common Core – A Big Government Assault on K-12 Education

    07/02/2014 10:07:39 PM PDT · 4 of 5
    ForGod'sSake to tbw2
    Common Core was rejected by the state of Texas as a whole, but over half of the public school districts adopted it anyway.

    Over half??? Doubtful, but those that did will be sucking wind before long. Not only is it ILLEGAL to implement common core in Texas schools; those that persist will lose their state funding to boot. Brief article:

    AG Abbott: Texas schools cannot use Common Core standards

    Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott confirmed Tuesday in a ruling that the state’s public school districts cannot adopt controversial national curriculum standards called common core.

    State lawmakers passed a law prohibiting the use of the standards, but state Sen. Dan Patrick, the bill’s sponsor and chairman of the Senate Education Committee, asked Abbott for a ruling to eliminate any confusion over the meaning. Some had expressed concerns that the state’s own curriculum requirements (known as the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) overlap with the common core standards — adopted by nearly all states besides Texas, though some have since dropped their support or delayed the rollout.

    “That concern is baseless,” wrote Abbott, the Republican gubernatorial nominee. “To use a simple example, if TEKS requires teaching that 2+2=4, the bill plainly does not prevent this instruction simply because Common Core also teaches that 2+2=4. The Legislature was aware of the frequent overlap between the TEKS and the Common Core Standards, as evidenced by the bill author’s explanation that it was not his intent ‘to prevent the use of materials where the two standards may overlap.’”

    The common core standards, which had bipartisan support nationwide, have since spawned a revolt from some Republicans over concerns that the federal government has too much sway over local education policy.

    No offense intended...

    No offense taken of course. My expressed sensitivity was more tongue in cheek than anything else, but you probably know that.

    ...just didn’t see how either of us would profit by continued conversation on the subject.

    Interesting. You can not or will not be swayed by arguments presenting evidence contrary to your, er, faith??? And you have to admit your opinions on the subject are what you choose to believe as much as anything else. Scientific POV? I dunno. Regardless, I like a good debate and I CAN be swayed with compelling evidence.

    Up until about fifteen years ago or so I was what I would classify an agnostic. I probably leaned towards catastrophism but didn't know what to believe and honestly didn't care much one way or the other. Furthermore I couldn't see that it really made much difference. Until I discovered malfeasance by many in the scientific community™.

    I can't even begin to guess how many hundreds of hours I have spent digging, searching, studying and scratching my head in an effort to find out what was and is going on. Much of that done here on FR with the able assistance of other Freepers or spun off from FR. I even discovered that Darwin himself didn't know what to make of the obvious devastation that apparently occurred during historical times(pick an arbitrary date of, say, less than 20K years ago). It was everywhere he looked, particularly in the Americas. It seems his work was co-opted by his benefactor and mentor Charles Lyell who turned it into the uniformitarian/gradual evolutionary nonsense we see til this day. To what purpose I haven't a clue, but there it is.

    Have a good day.

    Did you go away mad or did you just go away??? You'll pardon an observation but being the sensitive type I was utterly and grossly offended(more or less) at your complete silence when I offered you links to some alternative views on the destruction at the end Pleistocene; more particularly the demise of the megafauna.

    I haven't looked at your posting history so I don't know if you're a hit and run type or not. It is a curiosity to me that some people, when offered compelling data opposing their views, fall off a cliff, or something. You are still around, aren't you???

    No matter. SunkenCiv probably spent a good deal of time compiling a somewhat dated(now) but exhaustive FR list on the subject that you might find interesting; or not, HERE.

    Let me know if you would like to see additional stuff or if you would just as soon discontinue the conversation.

    I could imagine giant tsunamis causing such bone piles.

    Truth be told, it's the only thing that comes to mind that COULD explain it. Depositing the bones of millions of disarticulated animals along with splintered trees, volcanic ash, large rocks and sand over hundreds, maybe thousands of miles is tough to overlook but the scientific community™ has done a yeoman's job of it so far. Gives me a case of the RED A$$!

    There are still significant killings and species depletion occurring...

    No doubt some of it at the hands of Man but when accompanied by evidence of catastrophe??? ONLY if one ignores the catastrophe I suppose. Anyhow, here in East Texas we have something similar occurring, after a fashion. Fire ants! Yep, fire ants have been credited with creating havoc amongst critters that nest on, near or under the ground. Larger young critters are even at risk if mama drops her newborn on or near a fire ant hill. Ground nesting birds like quail are nothing but a memory.

    gleeakin, I think what we’ve got here is a “hunted to extinction” crusader. I sent him/her to some links that are pretty compelling re a catastrophic end to the Pleistocene and I’m guessing he/she got a painful whiplash turning away from it. Not only that but evidence of simultaneous megafauna extinctions in other parts of the world besides the Americas which he/she also ignored. I’m also wondering if he/she has read there has been few, if any, human artifacts found dating to within a thousand years or so AFTER the events that took out the megafauna. Indicating of course that whatever snuffed the megafauna likely also snuffed most of the peoples of at least North America. Don’t know about the rest of the world.

    Then why was much of the mega-fauna extinction limited to the Americas?

    You might point me to where I can study the remaining megafauna in Europe and Asia, excepting the Asian subcontinent where elephants still roam. As far as I can tell, Australia, with the exception of some overly large marsupials, never had much else in the way of megafauna to start with. A quick search indicates there were mammoths/mastodons on the African continent at one time. I didn't look any further to determine when they went missing. NZ and Madagascar???

    There are so many anamolies associated with this time period that trying to put the blame on humans seems a PC endeavor at best and unmitigated propoganda at worst. There are indications of potential cosmic origin, along with pole wanderings, massive volcanism, flooding and enormous waves traversing entire continents; you get the idea...

    From this SEARCH check out the first ARTICLE re boneyards in Alaska and almost complete islands composed of mammoth/mastodon remains in and north of Siberia.

    Interesting observations but you forgot to address my first point which was actually the main point. The evidence of catastrophe near the end of the last glaciation is global but studiously ignored/suppressed by the scientific community.

    In the Americas, Oz and elsewhere the animals weren’t adapted to this uniquely effective predator and were wiped out by us.

    Just curious, but how much have you actually looked into the distribution of massive accumulations of megafauna remains and other detritus deposited at or near the end of the last glaciation in North America and elsewhere?

    In any case, for me, the "hunted to extinction" narrative has a "man made global warming" ring to it.

    FWIW, it doesn’t take a genius to find a dark cloud. Your cynicism probably knows no bounds. Personally, I think you’re full of $H!T.

    HMPFH!!! This Pruden guy paints with a very broad brush and way too many Freepers jump on it like it was handed down from the Mount. Disgusting!!!

    Our Constitution and way of life have been under attack since the ink was barely dry on our founding documents. If Pruden is not careful he's liable to set up a straw man for flogging. Then again, that may be his intention...

    It is not. Electric universe is hokum.

    Zat so??? Support your statement or retract it. Junk science from the Scientific Community™ will not be entertained. Let's start with "dark" energy and "dark" matter. Follow some of these to add to your vast research archives:

    Excellent piece IMHO. We can argue till the cows a me home whether jug ears is a genius or an idiot. But, to what purpose? Fact is, he SAID he was going to fundamentally transform the U.S. didn't he? Scared the $#!T outta me when I heard it but then I thought SURELY Americans can see where he's going with this and I rested a little easier. Silly me!

    I don't believe it takes a genius to create chaos, ESPECIALLY when the conditions are ripe for the picking. After decades of sliding towards the abyss, led by a seditious media IMO, our would-be masters made their move with, of all things, a half breed, jug eared illegal alien. Nice work.

    Har! Clairvoyance is not your strong suit so don’t give up your day job. Defending the realm is it? I think I’ll forego any further attempts at dialog with you since it’s abundantly clear you can contribute nothing to the conversation. So again, bye.

    I have no intention of doing your homework for you. It has become obvious you intend to defend the indefensible and I’m not inclined towards arguing with fools. I don’t need the practice. You know the old saw, eh?
