“Unknown by means of the more unknown”.

Old minds are like old horses; you must exercise them if you wish to keep them in working order.

Electric Universe theory presupposes that Earth and the Solar System experienced catastrophic events sometime in the recent past. When that reordering and resurfacing occurred is impossible to ascertain at this late date, but it is thought to be between 5000 and 10,000 years ago.

Modern theories insist that millions, if not billions, of years were required to create our planet’s geography. Geologic mechanisms that are so slow as to be undetectable cause mountains to rise: the Himalayas and the Andes, for example, look today like they looked to ancient peoples. Since erosion takes place in microscopic increments, they are hardly different today than they were to Alexander the Great.

Earth’s oceans, as conventionally understood, have remained in their basins for spans of time that are meaningless to the human mind. The Atlantic Ocean has existed between Africa, Europe, and the Americas for a period of time greater than humanity’s existence…hundreds of millions of years. It is assumed that erosion or sediment deposition are cyclic processes that are the same today as they were long ago, so layers are assumed to indicate age. Current methods for dating artifacts, sedimentary strata, or fossils depend on gradual uniformity.

The uniformitarian hypothesis is incorrect, based on observations from the electrical standpoint. If carbon dating, potassium-argon dating, or the so-called “geologic column” are not reliable indicators, then where does that leave Earth’s age estimates? What if Earth’s topography is so young that ancient civilizations were able to record the changes? Neolithic, or Jurassic, or Precambrian eras would have no meaning, since the time spans do not conform to conventional ideas.

There are coal beds covering millions of square kilometers everywhere in the world. All manner of organic material is found in them, including insects, trees, and animal bones. The majority of the deposits reveal disarticulated, shredded, or crushed fossils. Carbonized trees can be seen standing upright in a few coal seams, extending down through eons of time, 250 to 500 million years.

Petrified wood covers large areas of the American plains. The central United States is home to gravel deposits that are hundreds of meters deep. There are animals and plants cast in stone that is said to be millions, and even billions, of years old. Some are mixed together in gigantic piles of muck, with different species from every era entombed in burned, splintered masses.

What caused the forests to burn, freeze, and then succumb to petrification?

The development of geologic dating systems is based on the idea that Earth is an isolated planet that does not interact with other celestial bodies. Planetary scientists agree that there were meteor impacts of staggering size in past epochs, but nothing like that has taken place since the Jurassic.

Also, the uniformitarian hypothesis says that radioactive decay rates are the same today as in the past, with no changes since the elements were formed. No alterations to Earth’s electric or magnetic fields are allowed. Geologists rely on a continuous clock ticking along at a measurable rate for untold eons. If that proposal is incorrect, then the Age of the Dinosaurs, or the formation of the ocean basins, could have taken place at any point in the past, or over any length of time.

Plasma interactions with Earth and other charged bodies, or the impact on Earth’s biosphere from ion beams, could disrupt all the elemental changes that are used to date rocks. Earth could be much younger than billions of years, or much older. If Electric Universe concepts are found to be more reasonable than previous theories, then there are no “clocks” and no “calendars” to use, except those that came into being a mere 100 generations ago.
