         the lack of equilibrium between the build-up and decay of c14 in the atmosphere indicates that a great cosmic disaster occurred in 2345 bce.  he thinks the great flood was then. 
         rock from a lava bed was dated up to 3 billion years old, when it was known to have formed 168 years ago. 
         ice cores of greenland are thought to be 135,000 years old, assuming thin annual layers.  yet war planes parked on the ice in 1941 were found in 1990 to be under 268 ft of ice!  it turns out the rings are not summer-winter but warm-cold, and there can be 10 in a day, yet our lads still call them annual.   its now easier to see how green became white in a mere 1000 years, since the vikings. 
         gray makes assumptions too, thinking that salt traces in the lakes of the great basin are from glacial lakes, and not considering they may have resulted from a tsunami.  the same is true for the great plains. 
         [i agree that a global disaster happened, but think it dates closer to 2950 bce, and it was not the great deluge, nations suffered, but were not destroyed.  it was the smallest of 4 disasters since 50,000 bce, as given by cayce.  he didnt even mention that of 2950 bce. ] 
         the great barrier reef is about 3,700 years old, suggesting the current sealevel of the pacific began about then.  i challenge the accuracy of that, fewer organisms at the start would produce less coral, than the mass later.  the rate of growth increases with size. 
         he asks why there is no evidence of earlier generations of sequoias and bristlecone pines?  good question.    a short-term flood would have left them standing, and perhaps alive, but a huge tsunami would have knocked them down and swept away the pieces. 
         in 1999 the potsdam institute concluded that the sahara desert was about 4,000 years old. 
         astronomer dodwell's study of ancient solstice sites shows that the axis was vertical before about 3350 bce, and it suddenly shifted to a wobble of 26.5 degrees, and since then it has corrected 3 degrees.  he concluded that something struck the earth about 2355 bce.  [i think that the dates assigned to the monuments that he measured the solstice shadow at are not accurately known, so the date of the collision could have been just as easily 2950 bce, the date given by tradition for a flood in the andes, and closer to the 3000 bce date when many of the cultures of the world were disrupted, in egypt, india, mexico, and peru.   the calendar count restarted in many nations near then.  the new long count began in mexico 3114 bce, 1st dynasty in egypt, and the kali yuga of india 3104 bce.  it is significant though. ] 
         oops, author says that only by reading his books can we know the facts!  he insists that no culture survived the event of 2355 bce, and there was no great floods or global disasters before that time.  i just lost interest in this author!!  unless he has full access to the akashic records, he boasts, he is hardly on a soul development with edgar cayce and blavatsky, who have said otherwise.  i can concur that there was possibly a cosmic collision circa 3000 bce, that disrupted orbits, caused wobble of the earth's axis, great tsunamis, megafauna kill-off, and a change in the hours of the day, and length of the year - but will not admit that only he has all of the facts!  he needs to reword that.  God may have granted understanding to a few others.
