Episode #141: Dr. Chandra Wickramasinghe

We have an excellent and mind-expanding discussion with Dr. Chandra Wickramasinghe about panspermia and the cosmic origins of life, and how evidence has been building for decades that space itself may contain a "micro-biome" consisting of vast numbers of single-cell life forms and viruses, and that these are constantly raining down upon the earth, changing and affecting life here on the planet, and possibly contributing to evolutionary changes throughout the history of life on earth.

We also talk about how this cosmic distribution of life in the universe may have caused the sudden onset of plagues and sicknesses throughout history, and that it may be the origin of the current viral crisis the world is facing in the form of COVID19.

We have to give special thanks to George Howard from The Cosmic Tusk blog for helping us set up this fantastic interview with Dr. Chandra. You can find the recent articles George has written regarding Dr. Chandra's work here, and here.

Episode #140: The Serpent Fam

Both of our parents join us in the tangent cube for this episode, to talk about their backgrounds and tell stories of the shenanigans we got up to as kids, and their philosophy of education that had such a huge impact on how we go about life, always trying to learn new things from the natural world around us.

This is a special episode for us, and as so many families around the world are spending a lot more time together right now, we thought it would be fun to have all four of us crammed into the cube for a good old fashioned Allen roundtable. Many listeners are already familiar with the Snake Stache from his previous appearance on episode #84, and this is the first time the Snake Mom has been on the show.

We hope you all enjoy listening to this episode as much as we enjoyed making it!

Episode #139: Live from Quarantine

We take a break from the book reports and deep dives and relax a bit, talking about whatever comes to mind through the course of the show. We also streamed this episode live to the Discord chat, which was fun, and is something we plan to do more of in the future.

We catch up on listener emails and Kyle reads an excellent story about an exoplanet where it actually rains metal. We talk ancient aliens, space genes, and viruses. We also read through a three part article from MessageToEagle.com about redheaded mummies, worldwide mythology, and a possible Atlantean connection.

Enjoy!

Episode #138: Earth in Upheaval - Part 6

We finish our long deep dive into Velikovsky's Earth in Upheaval with this 6th installment of the series. In this episode we look at fossil plants and insects preserved in coal seams, seemingly shredded into small pieces yet preserved so well that the color of the insects is intact and leaves still contain chlorophyll. We also look into the mystery of the formation of coal itself, and how there are often dozens or even hundreds of layers of coal separated by layers of marine sediment.

Near the end of the book, Velikovsky again takes a look at the works of Charles Darwin and the problems of speciation in evolution by the mechanism of natural selection, and the assumptions about "missing evidence in the geological record" that must be made in order to make the uniformitarian view work.

We also open some great 1-Up boxes and read some emails, and Kyle reads a couple of very interesting space related articles.

Episode #137: Earth in Upheaval - Part 5

Diving deeper into Velikovsky's book, Earth in Upheaval, we look at submerged caves and rising seas, stranded shorelines and ancient lakes, old water levels now tilted many degrees off the horizontal, strange glacier flow evidence and always unexpectedly young dates for artifacts, fossils, and geological features. We talk about the magnetic field of the earth and the evidence for field reversals in recent times, and what a field reversal might cause in the biosphere, and what could possibly be the mechanism for such an event, deep within the planet.

We talk about enormous lava flows, more erratics, sea caves that are now dry, and dry caves that are now submerged. All of which seem to have happened very quickly, and catastrophically.

Also, what is the Fine Structure Constant?
