Readers familiar with my Giza Death Star Trilogy will recall that I speculate on a scenario that some sort of weapon was deployed, utilizing the longitudinal wave structure of the medium, that blew up the now missing planet - Krypton, to give it its nineteenth century astronomical name - and that this catastrophe became the source for much of the massive geological evidence for planetary destruction on Mars and to a lesser extent on Earth.
Others have come to similar conclusions that an actual war may have been the cause of the planet's destruction. For example, Richard Hoagland has speculated on occasion on the Coast to Coast AM program, that a war may have been involved. Recently, however, I came across an interesting book by Mac Tonnies entitled After the Martian Apocalypse(Paraview Pocket Books, 2004), in which he states:

"I suggest that Van Flandern's Exploded Planet Hypothesis makes sense only if one is willing to entertain a nonnatural explanation. Of course, this is heretical on several levels, as the explanation must somehow encompass the presence of potential artifacts on Mars as well as a presumed high-tech culture on Mars's erstwhile parent.
"Strangely, the revelatory climax from Eando Binder's Puzzle of the Space Pyramids comes to mind. In Binder's novel, the asteroid belt was formed by a focused gravity assault that harnessed the energy of the enitre solar system. The pyramids of the title were essentially gravity generators used to manipulate spacetime." (p. 52)

While it is intriguing that Binder's fictional speculations as to the physics behind such a weapon are similar to my own, I find it even more interesting that people involved with these questions appear to be coming to similar conclusions, though via different routes. What is needed is a full analysis of geological data and the available photographic evidence to determine if any of the artifacts themselves show evidence of possible deliberate destruction. To my knowledge, the only one who has suggested this is Hoagland, in his analysis of photos of the D&M pyramid on Mars in the fifth edition of his famous book The Monuments of Mars.

Stay tuned. This could get very interesting....!

    Actually, no. The catastrophe referred to in my post dates back to about 65,000,000 years ago, as the terminus ante quem, and no later than 125,000 BC. In any case, the catastrophe I was referring to, while gigantic, would be nowhere near the scale of what is known as the Big Bang, a theory which, incidentally, I do NOT subscribe to. Nonetheless, your question was a good one, so thanks for helping me clear that up.

    “…that this catastrophe became the source for much of the massive geological evidence for planetary destruction on Mars and to a lesser extent on Earth…”

    And used in substantiation of big bang theories?

      The interpretation of this calamity, I have to disagree with the scenario listed above: namely that the Great Pyramid was the likely source for the destruction of Tiamat as per the Enuma Elish .

      This so-called creation epic does give a good rendition of what our early solar system was like. The APSU and Mummu were the forces of chaos and confusion. No matter the source of the matter of the solar system, it gradually cooled and became more and more orderly. As it did, it was resisted by the chaotic forces. It was now developing into order, albeit slowly.

      The translation of this by Sir E A Wallis Budge is quite enlightening. Remember, this “poem” was 7 tablets; and although the 4th gets the most attention, the others shouldn’t be ignored.

      The first two reveal that it was Enki was sent by his grandfather, Anshar, to deal with the planned destruction of the “gods” by the Apsu and Enki basically destroyed him. Tiamat was furious her ‘husband” was made completely ineffective.

      The second half and 3rd then turn to the impending destruction of Tiamat. Anshar knew Tiamat was up to no good. So, he sent an emissary to “quiet her heart”. Anu the son of Anshar was sent. He went to her, and “while a long way off” he saw here pacing to and fro, and muttering angrily to herself. He became so afraid of her, he turned tail and headed back to Annunaki Counsel with this news. He also mentioned that as he came closer, he became withered. When Enki heard this, he sat for a long time in sorrow. He knew what had to be done. Tiamat had to be destroyed.

      Now, here’s a possible explanation: Tiamat was a huge water world, the size close to that of Saturn. It was highly unstablerotation itself and having a very eccentric orbit. Due to these two stresses alone, the inner core was already to go, as the muttering angrily suggests. Enki’s sorrow, is that he knows what will happen next. Tiamat must be destroyed, but in doing so, the rest of the system would be so affected by the resultant debris as to further destruction. It was in essence a controlled demolition. Don’t forget, there’s not a planet or moon in our solar system that doesn’t show signs of extensive damages by craters or worse. The planet Uranus was knocked over on it’s side by almost 90 degrees. We see it now pole-on: not at it’s equator, as we see most other planets.

      in the 6th tablet, it states that the Bow used by Marduk or Merodach was put in a counsel chamber in what would be known as the Esag-ila. So who knows, this so called weopon could be buried in the clay sands of Mesopotamia.
