These podcasts discuss topics related to science. Some of the podcasts analyze examples of bad science or deal with new discoveries that are still not accepted by mainstream science.
This podcast reviews a paper proposing that a large impacting object from the Oort Cloud consisting mostly of ice crashed into the Earth 12,800 years ago and caused a world-wide flood that filled the Mediterranean basin.
Discussion of the creative process that led to the development of the Glacier Ice Impact Hypothesis, including insights that helped to change the direction of the research.
A severe bottleneck in the human Y-chromosome occurred after the Younger Dryas cooling event. At one point, the birth ratio of females to males was seventeen females for each male.
The recent Y-chromosome bottleneck may have been caused by the low tempertures of the Younger Dryas cooling event 12,900 years ago.
This presentation examines the way in which scientists have interpreted the Carolina Bays over the last 90 years and describes the relationship of the emplacement of the Carolina Bays and the extinction of the megafauna 12,900 years ago.
This presentation discusses the modeling of Carolina Bays and challenges all persons to try experiments to replicate the landscapes of the Carolina Bays and to publish the results in peer-reviewed journals.
The distance of the Carolina Bays from their convergence point is sufficient to calculate the speed of the ice projectiles that made the bays using ballistic equations. Yield equations correlate the size of the bays with projectile size.
A tour of the Atlantic Coast from New York to Florida examines how the Carolina Bays vary based on the characteristics of the terrain and the erosive forces of wind and water.
Examination of a biological explanation for the formation of the Carolina Bays that shows the difficulty of falsifying a scientific hypothesis. How does a hypothesis become mainstream and what does it take to disprove a hypothesis?
