Yes, I understand that, and I had a question. Does theoretical mean that's how they believe the P waves would have propagated around the world? In other words, did those P waves register with seismographs around the world like in this instance?
Once you're on the main page for a particular quake, there is a link called "Theoretical P-wave Travel Times". Those are the links I've been posting.
Dr. LaViolette is the first to predict that high intensity volleys of cosmic ray particles travel directly to our planet from distant sources in our Galaxy, a phenomenon now confirmed by scientific data. He is also the first to discover high concentrations of cosmic dust in Ice Age polar ice, indicating the occurrence of a global cosmic catastrophe in ancient times. Based on this work, he made predictions about the entry of interstellar dust into the solar system ten years before its confirmation in 1993 by data from the Ulysses spacecraft and by radar observations from New Zealand. He also originated the glacier wave flood theory that not only provides a reasonable scientific explanation for widespread continental floods, but also presents a credible explanation for the sudden freezing of the arctic mammoths and demise of the Pleistocene mammals. Also he developed a novel theory that links geomagnetic flips to the past occurrence of immense solar flare storm outbursts.
Dr. Paul LaViolette believes these events have been occurring more or less in periodic intervals in this planets history. He further speculates that the ancients had lived through these periods and have encoded a warning into our astrological and metaphorical lore. He thinks that it's possible that the ancients predicted a Super Wave burst of radiation from the galactic center may reach us at the year 2012.
Might I add only 2 months ago there was a 6.9 (or so) magnitude quake registered some 350 miles under the Granadian Mountains in Southern Spain, this is exactly the same magnitude and depth as this Brazilian quake and yet worldwide sensors failed to pick this up. Explain that.
Is that a serious question Phage?!? How about proof that God doesn't exist?
How about the data that shows the P waves were not recorded worldwide?

Hey Phage, what movie is your avatar from? Are you a John Lithgow fan? If I remember correctly, your last avatar was a photo of him as well...

Cosmic rays can't really make it through the atmosphere. They cannot penetrate the Earth.
[edit on 5/25/2010 by Phage]
When so-called "primary" cosmic rays hit the upper atmosphere almost all of them break up when they collide with nuclei of oxygen and nitrogen, the process producing a plethora of charged secondary particles. Many disintegrate in milliseconds, but others form isotopes that are preserved in everything from lake sediments to stalagmites and, more crucially, the layers of ice that accumulate each year to great depth in the Arctic and Antarctic regions.
One such isotope is Beryllium-10 (10Be), which can be extracted from ice cores and measured to provide an accurate indication of cosmic ray activity in the upper atmosphere. It shows that over the past 100,000 years, there have been three periods when the cosmic ray flux has increased dramatically. The first was around c. 60,000-70,000 years ago, the second occurred approximately c. 35,000-40,000 years ago, and the third and last peak began around c. 16,000-17,000 years ago, and continued until around 14,000 years ago. Each spike lasted for a period of approximately 2,000 years. Similar results have been determined from a stalagmite removed from a submerged blue hole in the Bahamas. An examination of its Beryllium-10 content indicates that at various points between 45,000 and 11,000 years ago the Earth was bombarded by twice the amount of cosmic radiation than we get today.
Cosmic rays are very penetrating and as well as penetrating through the atmosphere they have also been detected under the ground such as in the London Underground system as well as down deep mines. The following table gives some comparison of penetration for different types of radiation. So that of cosmic rays can be compared.
