SECTION II
THE FULL VERSION OF BEN'S ANTIPODAL IMPACT THEORY


The first section of this book deliberately limits the scope of Ben's Antipodal Impact Theory to a smaller area that can be fully compared, argued and analyzed in comparison with the Standard Theory. However, the second section of this book enlarges the scope to include many more explanatory devices and scenarios.

Much of this section involves informed speculation. However, I would argue that much of the competing information from the Standard Theory also involves informed speculation ... but it is speculation that is given the imprimatur of acceptance because it was presented first.

The speculation that I will present in Section II will involve the creation of continental tectonic plates and the movement of tectonic plates and hotspots. Also in Section II, the speculation will provide likely scenarios for major mass extinctions:

1. The End-Cretaceous Extinction 65 MYA
2. The Triassic Extinction 202 MYA
3. The Permian Extinction 250 MYA
Further in Section II, the speculation will provide likely scenarios for the creation of specific continents and their tectonic plates, including:

1. India 65 MYA
2. South America 132 MYA
3. Eastern North America 202 MYA
4. Western Antarctica 214 MYA
5. Siberia 250 MYA
Section II will even provide informed speculation on the formation of the moon four billion years ago.

Although much of this section will be rightly characterized as speculative, I would ask readers to remember that much of the current Standard Theory regarding these subjects is also speculative ... it has just been around for a lot longer. Therefore, I would invite readers to exercise their skepticism, but to exercise it on both sides of the fence.
