    Okay, i heard from some one before, that our solar system is constantly oscillates up and down, shifting in and out of the galaxy plane, with oscillations taking many many years. my friend also said that when we shift out of the plane, we get exposure to tons of gamma radiation, many times more than the gamma radiation we get from the galaxy today.

    after some research these are whut i found.
    1) this picture shows that our milky way is a plane,(this is the side view)
    2) so i conclude its possible, if the sun oscillates up and down, it WILL shift in and out of the galaxy plane.
    3) however, i did not find any details saying that the solar system moves up and down, maybe i was googling the wrong terms?


    so,
    1) does it move up and down from the galaxy plane?
    2) do we get tons of radiation if we are out of the plane?(if yes)
    3) how long does each full oscillation take?(if yes)

    if yes, would it explain the non-evolution clues that believers try to use to prove evolution did not take place?
    that: no halfMan-halfApe animals are alive today/found in fossils, and they say the minute amount of fossils found are frauds
    because if we get huge blasts of DNA altering energy every _____years, it would explain why no slowly-evolving creatures are found, cause a huge change occured due to the DNA altering energy blasts.


    p.s. i dont have contact with that friend anymore

    This is a very interesting concept for me , congratulations on instilling some interest on a mostly mindless creature. I'll get back to you after I've made some measurements, it'll take a few hours, I gotta make a trip to Lowe's to get the yardstick. I look forward to a valid response!

    And btw i dont think my friend is lying to me. he's some science dude, and he reads a lot.

    Even if it were ocillating, which I've never heard of, at our point in the plane the the galaxy is is something like 15 million light years thick. I don't think it could ossillate that far.

    i think i rememer its something like every 60 thousand years or 6 million years or 60 million years something along these lines

    Yes, our Sol system oscillates almost 3 times per complete orbit around the galactic center. The bit about gamma rays and all that has no support whatsoever.

    Earth Biodiversity May Trace to Bobbing Solar System Path | LiveScience
    Usually, the Milky Way's magnetic field shields the solar system from most of these potentially dangerous particles. But every 64 million years or so, our solar system pops up above the northern edge of our galaxy's disk, exposing Earth to more cosmic rays, researchers said.
    This periodicity matches up well with a biodiversity pattern detected by other researchers in 2005: Over the last 542 million years, the diversity of life on Earth has fluctuated regularly, with the total number of species on the planet rising and falling every 62 million years.
    In 2007, researchers Mikhail Medvedev and Adrian Melott, both of the University of Kansas —Melott is Atri's graduate advisor and a co-author on the current study —proposed that the synchronicity of these two cycles is no accident.

    This is interesting because I happened to be reading an article on this the other day which confronted the idea of the solar system passing through dust clouds resulting in more impacts on the Earth, cosmic rays and the like and concluded that there was only speculative or tentative support for any of these ideas as none of it has been measured or observed.
    Of course, I did not make a mental note at the time to remember where exactly to find that article, but I'll look for it...

    It is confirmed that there is such a hypothesis, but it is certainly not a well established fact.

    well, then, can evolutionists use this to argue why no halfMan-halfApe animals are alive today/found in fossils exists?
    ,that evolution did not happen slowly, but at large jumps in DNA change every time the earth is exposed to gamma radiation?

    Remember, we are talking about a cycle of 62 million years. Apes only go back to about 28 million years, hominids 15 million, and humans about 0.5 million.

    The reason why no half-man; half-ape fossils are found is because there never was such a thing, ever.

    Note that this galactic plane-crossing hypothesis suggests that life on earth takes a beating every 62 million years - that is, biodiversity goes down, not up (as measured in the fossil record). It's talking about increased rates of extinction, basically.

    Hey i read up: Timeline of human evolution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaand it did not say how the got those numbers/times of years
