The following topics, to me at least, would constitute a minimal list for discussion at any sort of a conference called to evaluate the impact of the catastrophic events of the past 10,000 years on human societies:
1. The basic non-evolution of modern man, i.e. the failure of scientists to come to grips with the fact that "too-genetically-remote-to-be-ancestral-do" is a transitive relationship. My own take on this topic may be viewed here:
The possibility of humans evolving from hominids having been eliminated, three choices remain as to how modern man arose:
There is physical evidence to support the second and third choices.
2. Elaine Morgan's "Aquatic Ape" hypothesis. You do not need to believe in evolution to comprehend that Morgan is almost certainly correct in claiming that humans originally lived in water.
3. The question of "Splash Saltations". New animal species appear suddenly in the fossil record; could near approaches have simply dumped them into shallow seas here (from other bodies), and then they simply swam ashore? In particular, could that be how modern man got here?
4. Consciousness and the findings of Julian Jaynes. My version of an executive summary resides here:
5 The related question of pre-flood language, i.e. the fact that the notion of macro-evolution does not work any better for human languages than it does for animals. Again my own take:
6. The question of pre-flood communications between humans and higher animals. A starting point for that would be Plato's dialog "Statesman".
7. The question of an "Antediluvian Peace". Richard Heinberg noted that there are very ancient "cities" without walls. Given historical realities, in many if not most cultures, the words for 'city' and 'wall' are related, the one often derived from the other... Likewise Plato speaks of a pre-flood peace amongst animals, at least higher animals, and the Bible indicates that hunting and eating animal flesh first occurred after the flood.
8. The question of what other parts of our system were inhabited prior to the recent capture of the Saturn system by our present sun. My own take resides here:
Tom Van Flandern's Mars image slides for his press conference in NY reside here:
Best internet resource for recent Mars images is probably this:
The 07 HIRISE images of Mars little moon Phobos show it to be artificial:
Likewise newer and higher resolution images of the well-known face on Mars show it to be clearly artificial as well:
Nature simply does not do straight lines and Bezier curves on a three mile scale. Dr. Van Flandern's website describes the situation here:
What is less well known is that there are several such face images on the Martian surface. Dr. Van Flandern's website includes these:
Note that those faces are human and not hominid. That relates to questions 1 and 3.
Aside from Mars, there are signs of human hands at work in prehistoric times elsewhere in our system as well. Saturn's little moon Iapetus for instance:
I've noted that Mother Nature does not do straight lines or Bezier curves on a three mile scale; she does not do walls around moons on great circle arcs either. The most major thing which has kept NASA from publically recognizing this reality of prehistoric habitation of other bodies in our system, particular Mars, is a paradigm problem. ASSUMING the conformation of our present system to be primordial, there is no way to picture Mars ever having been habitable, it would always have been too cold, and too small to hold a breathable atmosphere via gravity. The Saturn theory resolves these issues and nothing else does to my knowledge. Both Al de Grazia's version and the Thunderbolts version of a Saturn thesis postulate atmosphere which were system wide; that would make smaller bodies habitable.
9. The question of historical chronologies, particularly the works of Gunnar Heinsohn, Charles Ginenthal, and Emmet Sweeney, and particularly Sweeney'as equation of the biblical Joseph with the grand vizier Imhotep of Pharoah Djoser who built the step pyramid:
The name "Joseph" appears clearly to be a borrowed name, appearing only in the cases of Joseph of the colored coat and Mary's husband i.e. it is not a normal Israelite name and it does not take much in the way of transliterations to get from 'Hotep' to 'Joseph'.
10. The relationship between the symbols for numbers and letters in old languages and the claim of "Theomatics", i.e. of a numeric code which runs through the Bible, and whether such a claim can be made for any other item(s) of ancient literature. The claim involved in theomatics is that words and phrases with similar or related meanings have related numeric codes as well. I would view that as another case of humans using their minds in ways which are no longer feasible, IF the claim is valid.
11. The question of prophecy/oracles and Al de Grazia's claim that there were electrical components to the phenomena which Julian Jaynes described:
There seems to be little doubt that the "Ark" mentioned in Exodus and books which follow Exodus are describing a primitive capacitor and Moses and others hearing a real voice in the vicinity of that capacitor device:
NUM 7:89 And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him.
12. The question of EVP, whether or not it is real, and what relationship there might be between EVP and the kinds of things which Al de Grazia and Hugh Crosthwaite describe:
