Its funny but after reading that article and having recently read and old 1957 copy of 'Worlds in Collision' by Immanuel Velikovsky
The time frame seems about right for what Velikovsky described in that book with Venus and Mars having repeated close contact with Earth and causing
all sorts of geological upheavals over the course of a century or so until Venus finally found a stable orbit, granted his talk about mars and its
possible civilizations latter in the book and the fact they hadnt settled on a theory of plate tectonics is a little odd in todays light, but hey he
wrote it a decade or two before they sent the first probes to mars so no one really knew what to expect from that planet till they got there
Seen a couple of things recently like this article that could sort of back up his claims or at least point to something interesting happening around
the time he and a few others state. Id say the Ruddman guys in the right building just not the right floor
something did happen and it was big what
ever it was.
Interesting all the same. Small pieces in a large puzzle.

maybe a small comet of some sort..
this could also describe the snake looking creature as told by the egyptians? the smoke lingering as the comet was entering into the atmosphere could
show signs of a tail?..
could have produced a earthquake and disturbed volcanos?.. is there any evidence of a comet hitting the earth at around that time?

Worlds in Collison goes into this in good detail, especially now that we know Venus has got a tail (trail) of sorts... or whats left of one. Sorta
helps validate the old guys theory since people really stomped on him for it.
Edit:- oh and any one that reads 'Worlds in Collision' dont be put off by the part that mentions earths vermin came from Jupiter and Venus's
atmosphere... I dont think Velikovsky thought about it enough or didnt realized during earthquakes and the like insects and other animals go into
panic mode and flee on mass coming out of the wood work so to speak, it was a part in the book that made me go 'ugh, wtf? vermin from Venus?' until
I thought about it a second and came to believe he just didnt look for a more plausible explanation.
