Discovering Archeology, July/August 1999
by Mike Baillie
Moses called down a host of calamities upon Egypt until the pharaoh
finally freed the Israelites. Perhaps he had the help of a comet
impact coupled with a volcano. A volcano destroyed the island of Santorini in the Aegean Sea (between today’s Greece and Turkey)
around the middle of the second millennium B.C. Researchers Val LaMarche and
Kathy Hirschboeck suggest the volcano might be
associated with tree-ring evidence for several years of intense cold
beginning in 1627 B.C. Could that form the basis for strange
meteorological phenomena recorded in the biblical book of Exodus?
the book of Exodus, which describes events a few hundred kilometers
from Santorini, we read of a pillar of cloud and fire, a lingering
darkness, and the parting of the Red Sea. An enormous column of ash
must have hung in the sky over the eruption (the Israelites’ “pillar
of cloud by day and fire by night?”), and the volcano doubtless
caused a tsunami, or tidal wave (which could have drowned a
The Exodus story is traditionally dated to either
the thirteenth or fifteenth century B.C. Those dates, however,
depend ultimately on identifying the “Pharaoh of the Oppression,”
and historians have never proven to which ruler that infamous title
referred. Many biblical scholars will disagree, but I suggest that a
seventeenth-century B.C. date is not impossible.
The argument can be bolstered. Equally catastrophic meteorological
conditions are recorded in the Bible for the time of King David.
Psalm 18, in
reference to David, speaks of terrifying events:
“Earth shook and
foundations of the hills moved and were shaken. ... Smoke ... fire
... darkness ...

fish, undrinkable water, cattle killed by hail, water breaking out
of rocks, the
earth opening, the sea parting as in a tsunami, and so on.
looking at the
Exodus story and knowing descriptions of other distant volcanic
offer the possibility that the Israelites escaped from Egypt under
the cover of a
major natural catastrophe. There may be veiled references to comets
in the biblical narrative, leading to the possibility that the
Santorini eruption itself may have been triggered by a bolide (comet
or asteroid) impact.
David Levy, co-discoverer of the comet that
bears his and Jean Shoemaker’s names, has argued that the
description of the “angel of the Lord in the sky over Jerusalem with
a drawn sword” (1 Chronicles 21) could be a reference to a comet.
The Angel of the Lord was, of course, also present at the Exodus, as
it was “traveling in front of Israel’s army.” Further, there are
indications that as the Israelites left Egypt, the night was as
bright as midday. The nights over Europe were reported to have been
daytime-bright after the only known modern bolide impact,
Tunguska explosion over Siberia in 1908.
These stories raise the question of whether comets recorded by the
Chinese at the start and end of the Shang Dynasty, at very near the
same dates, were the same as the comets that may be recorded in the
Old Testament. I believe that we know the answer: In the last five
millennia, several dynastic changes and dark ages have been the
direct result of impacts and/or volcanoes.
The consequences of such
events must have been devastating, leading to apocalyptic imagery in
religious writing and predictions of the end of the world. Zachariah
of Mitylene lived through the environmental disaster that began
about 540 A.D. In the mid-550s, he wrote in his twelve-volume
records of the trials the world had survived:
“In addition to all
the fearful things described above, the earthquakes and famines and
wars, ... there has also been fulfilled against us the curse of
Moses in Deuteronomy.”
The curse included pestilence, consumption,
fever, fiery blasts from the skies, mildew, a rain of powder and
dust, and darkness. The curse of Moses must have seemed an
appropriate description of life after the impact of a piece of a

Scottish Ocean side
Broadcasts in France are talking more and more
about cataclysms. What I’ve noticed is that each time there is a
reference to a huge tidal wave in the past, which has been recently
discovered. Recently, after a long speech about the Japanese
tsunami, they talked about a discovery in Scotland.
A huge landslide
on the ocean side affected the area and all the countries around up
towards Norway. They were puzzled cause it is supposed to be a
stable area. And this was said to have happened 7000 years ago.
A 28,000 Year Marine Record of Climate Change
Quaternary Research, 1999, Vol. 51, No.. 1, pp. 83-93
Marine sediment cores from the continental slope off
latitude Chile (33 degrees S) were studied with regard to grain-size
and clay mineral composition.
The data provide a 28,000 yr. C-14
accelerator mass spectrometry-dated record of variations in the terrigenous sediment supply reflecting modifications of weathering
conditions and sediment source areas in the continental hinterland.
These variations can be interpreted in terms of the paleoclimatic
evolution of mid-latitude Chile and are compared to existing
Glacial climates (28,000-18,000 cal yr. B.P.)
were generally cold-humid with a cold-semiarid interval between
26,000 and 22,000 cal yr. B.P. The deglaciation was characterized by
a trend toward more arid conditions. During the middle Holocene
(8000-4000 cal yr. B.P.), comparatively stable climatic conditions
prevailed with increased aridity in the Coastal Range.
Holocene (4000-0 cal yr. B.P.) was marked by more variable
paleoclimates with generally more humid conditions. Variations of
rain fall in mid-latitude Chile are most likely controlled by shifts
of the latitudinal position of the Southern Westerlies. Compared to
the Holocene, the southern westerly wind belt was located
significantly farther north during the last glacial maximum.
important variations of the latitudinal position of the Southern Westerlies
also occurred on shorter time scales.
Sea Level—Scientists Challenge Conventional Sea Level
December 3, 1999
Australian scientists say they
have discovered evidence of rapid change in world sea levels and of
a dramatic fall in geologically recent times -directly challenging
current conventional wisdom.
Dr Robert Baker of the University of
New England, in the New South Wales country town of Armidale, has
tapped the secrets of worm coatings on once-submerged rocks to shake
established theory that sea levels are presently as high as they
have ever been.
Based on height measurements of worm coatings on
rocks now well above sea level, and carbon dating tests which show
them to be as recent as 3,500 years old, Baker argues that sea
levels have not been steady since the last ice age, as is commonly
believed. Instead, he told Australia’s ABC television, it changed
rapidly 3,000-5,000 years ago.
“It means that the whole natural
system is unstable, it’s been unstable for 130,000 years.”
his colleagues at New England University say the sea level may have
fallen quickly 3,500 years ago, by as much as a meter in just 10-50
years. This means that the current rise in the sea level - normally
associated with environmental warming caused by the so-called
greenhouse effect - might not be that unusual, Baker said. He also
said that his evidence pointed to the controversial conclusion that
sea levels had once been higher than they are now.
wisdom has been that sea levels haven’t been higher. (Contrary)
evidence was something that they weren’t prepared to accept,” he
Baker’s theories, which he first aired 20 years ago, were
initially rejected, but are now about to receive a wider audience
with their publication in the respected journal Marine Biology. The
implications go further than greenhouse and global warming. Baker
said big movements in sea levels could explain the migration of
Australian Aborigines and give clues about the fate of ancient
civilizations such as in Egypt.

According to Discovery magazine, April 1999, the American Mastodon
roamed here for about 4 million years until about 11,500 years ago.
Another type, the Mammuthus primigenius, roamed around 400,000 years
until 3,900 years ago. Both extinction times could be multiples of
3,600 years. The heyday of the woolly mammoth was the Pleistocene
Epoch, stretching from 1.8 million years ago to the end of the last
ice age 11,000 years ago.
Mammoths thrived particularly well in
Siberia, where dry grasslands once stretched for hundreds of miles,
supporting a vibrant ecosystem of mammoths, bison, and other jumbo
herbivores. .. The mammoth fossils on Wrangel Island are the
youngest that have ever been found. It was there, apparently, that
mammoths made their last stand. They died out only 3,800 years ago.
It had always been thought that the mammoth died out about ten
thousand years ago, with the end of the ice age, but the tusk
appeared to be 7,000 years old. It was so unlikely, so Buttanyan
tested five more tusks, but the new dates pointed to an even more
remarkable conclusion. Hidden up here [Rangell Island] in the
Arctic, the mammoth hadn’t just survived the end of the ice age, it
was walking these hills at the time of the Egyptian Pharaohs, only
3500 years ago.
This discovery has led to the re-examination of the
complex chain of ‘cause and effect’ that made mammoths die out
everywhere else, and in the process has revitalized the whole debate
about how species might avoid extinction.

I am not familiar

are routinely done every few years, show an overall decrease in what
is called the “dipole moment” of the magnetic field. (See for
example, C.E. Barton, Journal of Geomagnetism and Geoelectricity, v
49, 123-148, 1997.) This decrease is approximately linear, not
If it were to continue, the dipole moment would become
zero in about 1250 years, but Barton points out that the dipole
appears to be recovering from an historic high that occurred about
2000 years ago, so there is no reason to believe that the decrease
will continue indefinitely.

its once-frozen shores gave way. The freshwater fish that lived in
the lake were killed as it drained into the ocean. “You used to be

Department of Defense Records Management Task Force
Semi - Annual
January to June 1995
The mission of the Department of Defense
(DOD) Records Management Task Force (RMTF) is to develop plans and
draft policy to implement six strategic improvement initiatives
proposed by the DOD RM Business Process Reengineering (BPR) effort
completed in July 1994 and approved by the Assistant Secretary of
Defense [ASD (C3I)].
These initiatives must be implemented, with
emphasis on electronic records, to reach the goal of a single
Department process for managing information as records for the year
DOD Managing Information as Records:
July 28, 1995
The overall mission of records management is found in
The strategic plan is the Department’s information
management planning vehicle which provides a broad brush perspective
on purpose, vision, goals and functions which supports this mission.
Special attention is directed to opportunities technology offers.
One foresight in understanding this mission has been expressed by:
“the right information will be available to decision makers in the
right format at the right time.”
This report proffers two simplified
modern precepts. The first precept is that a record consists of
information, regardless of medium, detailing the transaction of
business. The second precept is that all Government employees are
decision makers. DOD projects all unclassified information will be
supported in a distributed electronic environment in the near
future, all of which must be attended to by a standard records
management process and system by the year 2003.
The need for
resources to be applied in areas of policy guidance, software
acquisitions, and oversight of the implementation in support of the
Department’s records management mission is emphasized. This report
is intended for a wide audience, DOD employees, American Armed
Forces Servicemen and Service women, and the general public.

our actions, if we go for and vote for the Dole star wars bill,
should not be considered in a vacuum. Intended or not,
implementation of the Dole star wars bill would have a far-reaching,
chilling effect on the future of arms control. Often forgotten in
the debate on the national missile defense is the question of
whether technology is sufficiently mature enough to mandate the year
2003 as the deployment date.
The record of missile interceptor
testing to date and in the foreseeable future is one of more failure
than success. In the rush to deploy a prototype system using highly
advanced and sophisticated technology by the year 2003, we will be
forsaking, Mr. President, the-fly-before-you-buy principle that has
served us well in recent years. Not only will we be limiting the
testing and evaluation of the system in a push to field a system at
an earlier and unnecessary date, we will be locking ourselves into
certain technologies which may become obsolete by the year 2003.

the most wasteful items (in the House defense budget) is the $4
billion earmarked to construct a missile defense system by 2003.

billion before it finally could be deployed: ‘Fort Pork Gets
Reinforced,’ the Miami Herald, Miami, FL, May 20, 1996.

but we’re going to let you have it for five because we like you. ...
The bill would order work to start on an anti-missile system (much
less grandiose than the trillion-dollar Star Wars “invisible shield”
President Reagan favored) that could theoretically shoot down an
intercontinental missile or two launched at our territory by a small
rogue country like Libya, North Korea, Iran, Iraq, or for that
matter Denmark (hey, you never know) by the year 2003.
Missile Defense S. 1635
The Defend America Act of 1996 Law S. 1635
sets a clear policy to deploy by the end of the year 2003, a
National Missile Defense (NMD) system to provide a highly effective
defense of the United States against the most probable source of
ballistic missile threats in the post Cold War world limited,
unauthorized or accidental ballistic missile attacks. The
legislation does not establish a specific architecture for such a
NMD system, but in order to meet the 2003 deployment date, the bill
requires the Secretary of Defense to develop for deployment an
affordable and operationally effective NMD system.
National Missile Defense Policy Establishes U.S. missile defense
policy in two areas: Deployment by the end of 2003 of an NMD system

larger and more sophisticated threats emerge.

Should we live in fear or in
hope of our returning gods? The actions of the American
government seem to indicate a perceived threat. In 1996, The
Pentagon announced a plan, sponsored by the US Air Force, to
save the world by deploying missiles which would intercept

intent to pass legislation which would force America to

the satellite will rendezvous with comet Wirtanen and orbit it,
while taking scientific measurements.
A Surface Science Package (SSP)

also take measurements in fly-bys of two asteroids.
Astro-F (IRIS; Infrared Imaging Surveyor)
The Infrared Imaging
Surveyor (IRIS) is the second infrared astronomy mission of the
Institute of Space and Astronautical Science (ISAS). IRIS is
dedicated to infrared sky survey with much better sensitivity than
that of IRAS, and is expected to add significant information on many
important astrophysical problems (e.g., evolution of galaxies,
formation of stars and planets, and brown dwarfs and their relation
to dark matter).
IRIS has a 70 cm telescope cooled to 6 K with
super-fluid liquid helium and Stirling-cycle coolers. Two
focal-plane instruments are installed. One is the Far-Infrared
Surveyor (FIS) which will survey the entire sky in the wavelength
range from 50 to 200 micron with angular resolutions of 30 - 50 arc

Germany’s Trittin Wants Speedy Nuclear Shutdown Fox News
German Environment Minister Juergen Trittin wants to shut six
nuclear power plants by 2003, the news magazine Spiegel said on
Saturday. The remaining 13 nuclear reactors would be phased out by
2025, Spiegel said, citing internal documents from the Environment
Ministry. The ministry declined to comment on the report.
Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder’s red-green coalition has pledged to
phase out nuclear power, but the pace at which the shutdown takes
place has driven a wedge between Schroeder’s Social Democrats and
their ecologist Greens junior coalition partners. Trittin, one of
three Greens in the cabinet, is in charge of the shutdown and he
wants a speedy end to nuclear power.
The big utilities, which
include RWE AG, VEBA AG, Viag AG and Energie Baden-Wuerttemberg,
have threatened to sue for damages if they lose any money because of
the shutdown. Economics Minister Werner Mueller, who was formerly a
senior executive in the nuclear industry, has come up with a plan to
limit the operating life of nuclear plants to 35 years. Under the
Mueller plan, the first German nuclear plant would go offline in
2003. Spiegel said the Environment Ministry’s calculations showed
that nuclear plant operators recouped their investments within 15 to
The 25-year time frame will allow the utilities to cover
any losses from shutting down the plants, Spiegel reported. Nuclear

Press Information Note No 22-98
19 June 1998
Hurry along please, for the Mars Express Any scientists
wanting to send instruments to the surface of the planet Mars have
until 3 July to offer a small lander that might be carried aboard
the European Space Agency mission Mars Express. The selection of a
lander, if any, will then be the last stage in defining the
scientific payload of Mars Express, which is intended to go into
orbit around the Red Planet at the end of 2003.
The choice of
instruments for the orbiting spacecraft was recently expressed by ESA’s Science Programme Committee. This month ESA is inviting
tenders to build the spacecraft from three industrial
competitors, Alenia/Aerospatiale, Dornier and Matra-Marconi, who have
already studied the mission. The project must be fully defined in
time for the Science Programme Committee to finally confirm Mars
Express. Why the hurry?
The deadline is set in the form of a favourable launch opportunity just five years from now. The
positions of Earth and Mars in their orbits at that time will mean
that a spacecraft can reach Mars more quickly, carrying a greater
weight of instruments, than from any other launch date in the next
decade. A decision to proceed taken towards the end of 1998 would
leave less than five years to create, test and launch a complex
spacecraft and meet that deadline.
Most judgments about Mars Express
and its instruments have therefore to be made in advance if the
engineers and scientists are to make sure that everything is ready
for lift-off in June 2003. For more details visit the Mars Express

France 5 November 1998 Mars Express wins unanimous support All
fourteen national delegations in the European Space Agency’s Science
Programme Committee have backed the project to send a spacecraft to
Mars in 2003.
Support for Mars Express, as this exciting mission is
called, is qualified by concern about the long-term budget of ESA’s
science programme. At its meeting in Paris on 2 and 3 November, the
Science Programme Committee made its approval of the implementation
of Mars Express conditional on sufficient funding for the science
programme and no impact on previously approved projects. ...
Development of the spacecraft will now proceed swiftly, to meet the
deadline of an exceptionally favourable launch window early in 2003.

New Mars plan targets sample
return Under a new plan drafted by NASA and its French, Italian and
counterparts, the consortium of space faring nations will begin
affordable spacecraft and innovative new technologies to obtain
measurements and samples of Martian material in preparation for
exploration of the planet.
The plan calls for construction of a
fleet of affordable
launch vehicles, orbiters, landers, rovers and Mars ascent vehicles
designed to wage an all-out effort to begin returning samples of the
Martian regolith as early as April 2008. ...Work on the
architectural redesign began in June. Eight “tiger teams” of experts
from the international scientific community, led by Elachi and Dr.
Frank Jordan, manager of JPL’s Mars Program Planning and
Architecture Office, were formed to address issues of spacecraft
design, innovative technologies and science goals for missions
beginning in 2003, as well as for achieving the overall goals of the
long-range Mars Surveyor Program.
Recommendations were presented to
NASA Administrator Daniel Goldin on Sept. 24 and, subsequently,
approved for implementation. ...NASA will begin the series of
sample-return mission in 2003, with launch of a lander and a rover
that will spend several months searching for and collecting rock and
soil samples, said Dr. Daniel McCleese, chief scientist and manager
of the Office of Strategy and Science Programs for JPL’s Mars
Exploration Directorate. The roving vehicle will return the sample
to a new, low-cost, low-mass Mars ascent vehicle. ...

Close encounter with Mars
Europe is going to
June 11, 1999
The European Space Agency’s Mars Express mission
won unanimous approval. It will be the first mission Europe has sent
to the red
planet. The Agency’s Science Programme Committee (SPC) approved Mars
Express after ESA’s Council, meeting at ministerial level in
Brussels on 11 and
12 May, had agreed the level of the science budget for the next 4
years, just enough to make the mission affordable.
“Mars Express is a mission of
opportunity and we felt we just had to jump in and do it. We are
convinced it will produce first-rate science”, says Hans Balsiger, SPC chairman.
As well as
being a first for Europe in Mars exploration, Mars Express will
cheaper ways of doing space science missions. “With a total cost of
million euros, Mars Express will be the cheapest Mars mission ever
undertaken”, says Roger Bonnet, ESA’s Director of Science. Mars
be launched in June 2003.
When it arrives at the red planet six
months later, it
will begin to search for water and life. Seven instruments, provided
research institutes throughout Europe, will make observations from
spacecraft as it orbits the planet. Just before the spacecraft
arrives, it will release
a small lander, provided by research institutes in the UK, that will
journey on to
the surface to look for signs of life.
The lander is called Beagle 2
after the ship
in which Charles Darwin sailed round the world in search of evidence
supporting his theory of evolution. But just as Darwin had to raise
the money for
his trip, so the search is on for public and private finance for
Beagle 2. “Beagle 2
is an extremely important element of the mission”, says Bonnet.
scientists have envisaged a mission to Mars for over fifteen years.
funding has prevented previous proposals from going ahead. The
the planets in 2003, however, offers a particularly favourable
passage to the red
planet - an opportunity not to be missed. Mars Express will be
joined by an
international flotilla of spacecraft that will also be using this
opportunity to work together on scientific questions and pave the
way for future exploration.
ESA is now able to afford Mars Express
because it will be built more quickly and cheaply than any other
comparable mission. It will be the first of the Agency’s new
flexible missions, based on maximum reuse of technology
off-the-shelf and from other missions (the Rosetta cometary mission
in this case).
Mars Express will explore the extent to which
innovative working practices, now made possible by the maturity of
Europe’s space industry, can cut mission costs and the time from
concept to launch: a new kind of relationship with industrial
partners is starting.
“We are adopting a new approach to management
by delegating to Matra Marconi Space (the prime contractor)
responsibility for the whole project. This means we can reduce the
ESA’s management costs” says Bonnet.
Despite the knock-down price,
however, the future of Mars Express has hung in the balance because
of the steady erosion of ESA’s space science budget since 1995. Last
November, the SPC said the mission could go ahead only if it could
be afforded without affecting missions already approved, especially
the FIRST infra-red observatory and the Planck mission to measure
the cosmic microwave background.
On 19/20 May, the SPC, which has
the ultimate decision over the Agency’s science missions, agreed
that the level of resources allowed was just sufficient to allow
Mars Express to go ahead. “To do such an ambitious mission for so
little money is a challenge and we have decided to meet”, says

Cornell’s new role in 2001 Mars lander mission ITHACA, NY.
University’s astronomy department is working in a newly defined role
on NASA’s Mars Surveyor lander mission scheduled for launch in April
Although the Cornell-led Athena Rover vehicle program will not
be included in the mission as previously planned, “we will be doing
a pretty good job of recovery” by continuing to provide most of the
science for the 2001 lander, says astronomy professor Steven Squyres, the lead researcher on the project to explore and analyze
part of the Martian surface.
Squyres confirms that because of
revised budgets and time pressures NASA has postponed the Athena
Rover segment of the Surveyor Mars mission from 2001, and has
tentatively rescheduled it for the 2003 Mars Surveyor launch. The
highly complex package consists of a suite of experiments on board a
roving vehicle. In 2005, another Mars Surveyor mission has the goal
of returning to Earth with Martian rock samples collected by Athena.
“Of course, it’s a little disappointing,” says Squyres about the
postponement of the Athena Rover program. “But having a somewhat
delayed program that is realistic is better than having an
on-schedule program that isn’t going to work.” ...
investigations will still provide valuable geology and geochemistry
data, says Squyres, although the research into biological aspects
will be more limited than it will be for the 2003 mission.

“Without international cooperation
and financing, a grave situation could arise which can be pictured
as a Chernobyl in slow motion.” ...
As a consequence of his attempt
to help solving Russia’s environmental problems, Nikitin is facing
trial for high treason and disclosure of state secrets. Nikitin was
arrested, jailed for 10 months and confined to St. Petersburg for
the past two years.
Since then, he says, the secret service has
stepped up its KGB-style harassment: repeatedly slashing the tires
of his car, demanding film from his wife’s camera (who had taken
photos of the aggressors), keeping him awake at night with
continuous prank phone calls, threatening his lawyers with violence,
Within the next few weeks, Nikitin is likely to be tried
in secret by a judge and two laymen, who will be chosen by Russia’s
FSB - the KGB’s successor. At this time, just over 130 nuclear
powered submarines have been taken out of service and are laid up.
Eighty-eight of them belong to the Northern Fleet; fifty-two still
fuel in the reactors. Fifteen reactor compartments have been removed
hulls and have been prepared for storage. In all probability, around
150 nuclear submarines will be taken out of service with the Russian
Navy by the year 2003.
Inactive Northern Fleet submarines are laid
up at Gremikha, Severodvinsk, Vidyaevo (Olenya Bay, Sayda Bay and
the Nerpa yards), Polyarny (Shkval), Sevmorput, Gadzhievo (Ara and
Ura Bays) and Zapadnaya Litsa. The dismantling of first and second
generation submarines has commenced, whilst the dismantling of third
generation vessels is still in the planning stage.

Carry On Government
Increasingly as the year 2003 approaches, there will be sculpting of
reserves in the US for not only the military but also what is termed
a carry-on government. Those whose lives have been in government
service cannot imagine life otherwise. As the population would be
likely to swarm onto military bases, demanding to be fed, those
bases that will be set aside for a government recoup will be made
undesirable to the public - the storage of biological warfare
components, nuclear war-heads, or armaments likely to explode during
There is no way for the public to determine
which report of storage of undesirables is true or untrue, and we
are not advising that this be done. In truth, all such locales,
whether the story was true or not, will be undesirable. Any
survivors close to such a military depot or processing center for
biological weapons disposal or nuclear weapons reserves will find
themselves equally distressed. If the stories are true, then they
are living if living at all steeped in poison during the Aftertime.
If the stories are not true, then they are living close to former
government workers and military who want to re-establish a
government. The rationale is that the populace will be better off
with this governance, so they are doing a service. In truth, there
is nothing such a tattered remnant of a federal government could do
for the populace that they could not do better for themselves.
Naturally, the first thing these former government workers will be
looking to do is impose taxes, and without a money base, this will
be in the form of food and supplies.

Neither party is

world. Central banks all over the world treat the dollar as if it
were almost gold.
Drug dealers in Columbia, black marketeers in
