SD Q&A's

_C: A giant meteorite impact north of what is now Madagascar divided the protocontinent into the continents and islands via Shock Dynamics.
_S: During this Flood orbiting asteroid-caused tsunamis deposited sediment from the continental shelf onto the protocontinent.
- As atmospheric pressure fell, much calcium carbonate precipitated from the sea water, forming thick sedimentary rock with fossils.
_O: The movement of plates raised nearly all of the mountain chains via horizontal compression, and initiated global volcanism.
_GL: Movement of continents toward the poles along with atmospheric moisture and volcanic and impact dust led to glaciation.

Shock Dynamics claims that the magnetic striping of ocean spreading-center ridges was due to the fluctuating magnetic field during the major impact-caused rapid continental drift event.

It also claims that the Pacific ridge formed during an earlier similar event.

Q1: Then are the striping patterns obviously different for the Pacific and Atlantic and Indian Ocean ridges?

Q2: If not, could two separate events produce the same magnetic striping pattern, even if the impacts that caused them were of greatly different sizes?

Q3: What is the evidence that the Pacific striping is considerably older than the others?

Q4: How well do the rock and fossil types of southern Australia and east Africa match where you think the great impact occurred? Where is the data? Is the match there very unique?

From James Maxlow's manuscript:
Page 143-144: [Flat continents]
... Small Earth modeling has previously suggested that throughout this extended period of [Precambrian] time the ancient Earth had a relatively flat featureless landscape, devoid of mountains, and included an extensive network of relatively shallow continental platform seas. Deposition of sediments within these shallow seas included chemically-precipitated siliceous chert, carbonate, and banded iron formation rocks. In contrast to the Precambrian, Figure 19.1 shows that the rapidly changing Palaeozoic times coincided with the development and evolution of all complex life forms on Earth. Environmental change during these times went from stable featureless land conditions, to increasingly elevated topography, to increased disruption and geographic isolation of the lands and continental seas.

>>Pages 188-189: [No Foreign Asteroids]
... In 2001 ... a team at the Carnegie Institute of Washington reported precise measurement of isotopic signatures ... of lunar rocks [which were found to be] identical with rocks from Earth and were similarly different from almost all other bodies in the Solar System. In 2012 ... and ... 2016 ... [other studies] also indicated that the Moon has the same composition as the Earth and the two bodies are indistinguishable. ... [Thus] the Moon and Earth may not have been involved in heavy bombardment from asteroids or comets colliding with the Earth and lunar surface. Debris from foreign asteroids or comets would have been readily detected in the research carried out by the Carnegie Institute by showing a distinctly separate isotopic signature, which it clearly doesn’t.

>>Pages 199-200: [Bombardment]
... After gradual separation of the Moon [from the body of the Earth], it is further envisaged that ... fragments ... from this separation process would have bombarded both bodies, forming the now familiar cratering on the near side of the Moon’s surface. Much cooler temperature conditions on the Moon may also explain why the primitive Moon cooled and crystallised ... earlier than the primitive Earth, thus preserving this period of surface bombardment and cratering.

>>Page 201: [Sedimentary deposition]
... On an increasing radius Earth the small Earth modeling studies show that, during early-Palaeozoic to present-day times there have been a number of drastic and prolonged changes to sea-levels which coincide with known extinction events. On these models, major changes in sea-levels were shown to occur as a result of separation or merging of previous ancient continental seas, as well as onset of geosynclinal activity and orogenesis, breakup of the ancient supercontinents, opening of the modern oceans, and draining of the ancient continental seas. Depending on the severity of these events, it was considered that sealevel changes may have also adversely affected regional to global-scale climate, as well as ocean-water circulation patterns, species habitats, and the type and location of sedimentary deposition.
