Loess deposits are surficial accumulations of air-borne, silt-sized yellowish surficial deposits frequently cemented by carbonates. The deposits are interpreted as the erosional products of glacial terrains on the basis of the mineralogy. However the actual provenance of the deposits remains mysterious despite the over-certainty of mainstream science.
Kimberlites are peculiar eruptions inferred to be mantle derived on the basis of the presence of diamonds and other ultra-mafic, high PT mineralogy as xenoliths in the kimberlite diatremes. No one has seen any kimberlite, or for that matter, or phreatomagmatic eruption occur at the Earth’s surface. What is known is that kimberlites are initiated at the Earth’s surface as a downward machining vortex (Scott-Smith model). As the diamond bearing kimberlites are limited to the old cratonic regions of the Earth, or the old crystalline sialic basement, one wonders what the nature of the vortex formed disaggregated crustal lithology output might be.
Another mystery is the formation of topographic depressions that subsequently fill with sediments. Did the crust sink or did the surrounding regions rise, or were the depressions initially excavated by plasma-vortices and subsequently filled by fluvial transport of the massive dust accumulations over the remaining outcropping crust?
Decades ago I noticed that Kimberlite eruption periods seemed to be linked to mass species extinction events, a correlation that is impermissible in the ruling Uniformitarian Paradigm, so I was informed by the then senior research geologist of WMC Ltd. “We are not allowed to think that way” was the reply to an email I sent.
Ignoring radiometric dating and other mainstream chronological obsessions, I suspect the massive Quaternary loess beds are the recent deposits of the crust that the kimberlites and Maars eruptions eroded during the last global catastrophic orogeny or event. The physics of the electrically supercharged detritus would involve magnetohydrodynamics, or plasma fluid behaviour;After all, magma is simply viscous plasma.
We have kimberlites and other craters misinterpreted as impacts, that seem to be short of associated eroded output, and massive fine grain chemically unweathered orphaned loess deposits. Given that mainstream science is under the thrall of the logical fallacy of arguing the consequent, where in this case all craters are meteorite impacts, it is more likely that these impact craters and when deeper, diatremes, kimberlitic, lamproitic and Maars, are the loci of massive crustal erosion processes that formed the various sedimentary deposits during earlier solar scaled geological catastrophes.
Except that catastrophes are forbidden in the liturgy, although prophesies of catastrophes permitted, the Global Warming Belief being but the latest of the religious tradition of prophesy.
It looks very much like the loess deposits are the orphans of the parents, the various Tertiary and Miocene kimberlites and related phenomena that while having eroded into the crust, seem not to have produced any ejecta. Perhaps the existing diatremes are simply nascent eruptives, and that the “intrusions” found in the sedimentary basins, salt domes and diatremes, are late stage examples of the erosional event.
But if you believe craters are all impacts of meteorites, then down the wrong path you will end, as Yoda might have said.
