* Short-lived Events Everywhere they Shouldn't Be: Bob Enyart and Fred Williams present Real Science Radio's list of transient (fleeting) events in our solar system that we should not be seeing If the solar system actually were 4.55 billion years old. By now the solar system should have reached a stasis. Instead, scientists observe a great number of short-lived occurrences (transient phenomena) on many of our planets and even their moons, including the rapid decline of magnetic fields (note the plural), of volcanic eruptions, youthful (non-dusted) and changing rings, a still melting inner core, rapidly changing "ancient" features; extremely high heat loss; rapid accumulation of dust; radon, helium, etc., outgassing, massive plumes, and add to all that the transient nature of comets and even of events on many asteroids and trans-Neptunian objects.
* Many unexpected transient events in our solar system: If the solar system actually were 4.55 billion years old (that third significant digit exposes the marketing hype of the evolutionists who commonly add it as a psychological device to convince the public of a fictitious precision), by now it should have reached a stasis. Instead, scientists observe a great number of fleeting, short-lived occurrences (transient phenomena) including:
- Mercury: rapid decline of its magnetic field
- Venus: recent volcanic eruptions and the apparent signficant slowing of rotation
- Earth: rapid decline of magnetic field; inner core melting; black smokers; rapidly changing "ancient" geologic features
- Moon: rsr.org/moon#TLP cites unexpected heat, dust, molten outer core, volcanism, radon & helium emissions
- Mars: eruption of apparent water vapor plumes to 200 kilometers and outgassing of its moons Phobos and Deimos
- Jupiter: moon Europa erupting and Io giving off 10x more heat than tidal pumping can explain
- Saturn: rings are young & changing; Enceladus ejecting plasma & erupting (hear RSR & former JPL system administrator)
- Comets: 67P outgassing oxygen and short-period comets exist even though the Oort cloud does not!
- Asteroids: that outgas, that have six tails, the look like comets, etc., see phys.org, NASA, EarthSky, etc.
- TNOs: Trans-Neptunian Objects are thousands of years old because millions of years would have randomized their perihelions
- And please send any examples that you may come across to us at Bob@rsr.org.
* More Mars News: Nasa finds that Mars, "once had 1-mile deep oceans and STILL remains moist".
* Other Transient Events in the Universe: If you would like to help with RSR research, if you can find an example that fits any of the following, please email your finding to Bob@rsr.org:
- a transient event in our solar system but not mentioned above
- a transient event outside of our solar system but within the Milky Way
- a transient event outside of the Milky Way but somewhere within the universe
- a universe-wide transient event (per Lawrence Krauss maybe?).
- Possible Sirius Color Change: The star Sirius presents one possible example of a transient event outside of our solar system. The brightest star in the sky other than the Sun, today Sirius shines bluish-white, but less than 2,000 years ago it was described as reddish in color. Depending upon the reliability of Ptolemy, Aratus, Cicero, Germanicus, Seneca, and St. Gregory of Tours, not many centuries ago Sirius was reddish, unless they were mistakenly identifying a different star (Arcturus?) or they were attributing to the inherent color of Sirius the effects of Earth's atmosphere at the star's rising. However, ignoring the Creator and His Word and assuming materialist timeframes, secular astronomers admit that, "the timescale of thousands of years is too short" for Sirius to change color.
* Earth's Rapidly Changing "Ancient" Features: We thank Creation magazine and David Catchpoole for beginning this list of Earth's rapidly changing, allegedly million-year-old, features.
- Eye of the Needle on the Missouri River in Montana, the famous Lewis and Clark arch, first documented in 1805, which collapsed evidently from natural causes in 2002.
- London Bridge in South Australia was a natural arch formation on the coast that, since 1990, is no longer.
- Landscape Arch in Utah's Arches National Park, the fifth longest naturally occurring arch in the world (for now), became even less stable in 1991 when, after it's alleged "five-million-year history", a tourist just happen to catch on video a 70-foot slab fall off (see video below). Of the 47 known collapses at Arches, this partial fall was not unlike the 2014 partial collapse of the park's beautiful Ring Arch! , which was part of the "Slick Rock" strata deposited allegedly "140 million years ago."
- Island Archway, just off of Australia's Victoria coast and part of the "Three Sisters" geological formation, collapsed in 2005.
- The Sentinel, in Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah, fell in November 2016.
- One of the Twelve Apostles (probably Judas) on Australia's southeastern coast collapsed in 2005.
- Old Man of the Mountain, New Hampshire, formation on a cliff formed in the Ice Age that allegedly began two million years ago but that eroded into the face allegedly about 19,000 years ago but collapsed on May 3, 2003.
- Chimney Rock Nat'l Historic Site was a major landmark along the Oregon Trail in the North Platte River Valley in Nebraska, a spire that once stood much taller, 325 feet as compared to today's 286 feet composed of strata that the National Park Service identifies with the Oligocene (allegedly 34 - 23 million years ago).
- Wall Arch, one of the longest of the 2,000 natural spans in Utah's Arches National Park, collapsed in 2008. The U.S. National Park Service website states that the park's geological features "tell a story of millions of years".
- God's Finger, Canary Islands, Spain (El Dedo de Dios) allegedly formed over about 250,000 years from rock laid down 14 million years ago, and fell in November 2005.
- Nye Beach, Oregon's massive, 100-foot-tall Jump-Off Joe formed perhaps as late as the 1800s but, according to the United States Geological Society, in middle Miocene sandstone that had allegedly been laid down 16M - 11.6 million years ago. Joe collapsed in 1916 and has completely eroded away.
- Ephemeral Arch, Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada, fell in May 2010.
- The 50-foot tall Cobra Rock formation near Moab, according to geology.utah.gov was capped with an allegedly 245-million year old sandstone slab over it's allegedly 290-million year old body, all of which fell in July 2014.
- Goblins and the Duckbill, both in Oregon, didn't fall naturally. The Duckbill sandstone formation in Cape Kiwanda State Park, a nearly 10-foot wide outcrop, was knocked over by three punks, members of the gross national product. (See them in action on the video taken by these rocket-scientist vandals.) ABC News and the Huffington Post repeated from Oregon Parks and Recreation that the sandstone layer was 18 million years old and the Duckbill shape itself formed perhaps tens or hundreds of thousands of years ago. The HuffPo also reported that at Goblin Valley State Park, three Boy Scout leaders toppled an unstable "goblin", aka as a "hoodoo", which "forms when a harder rock sits atop softer rock. Over millions of years, the harder rock on top protects the softer stone directly beneath it." The goblin/hoodoo was made of Jurassic rock, which, according to the Post and the Geology Department at the University of Utah, is allegedly 160 million years old. (Unlike the three punks, at least the scout leaders had a defense. They were afraid the already teetering rock might roll down onto a child hiking on the path just a few feet below the rock.)
- 43 Spans Collapse at Arches: Interestingly, since 1977 in Arches National Park, forty-three arch formations have collapsed. Yet there, and around the world, we see these structures fall but we don't see them form. At this rate of about one arch collapse per year, the math challenges the old-earth claim that the park's 2,000 arches result from millions of years of erosion.
- Personal note from Bob: "Two of our sons have repelled a hundred feet down off of one of the famed arches in Arches National Park. Clearly, they were not as safe as we had hoped they were, at the time."
- Note to RSR from an investigator with the federal justice system: At Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, Colorado, "Balanced Rock" has been reinforced with concrete by engineers (just in case).
* See this 70-foot long slab fall off of Landscape Arch: Over the last few decades, three heavy slabs of rock have fallen off Moab, Utah's Landscape Arch, one 30 feet in length, another 47 feet long, and this 70-foot long chunk...
* Cornwall, UK's North Cliffs Collapse: Wow! See thousands of tons of rock fall off of North Cliffs.
