I've been to this site before. Immensly interesting, but it's hard not to regard it as an exercise in quackery. John assures us the science is 'sound', but, well, like the salt archive site, one queses when reading through it.
I think the comments of 'Donnelly' need be understood as some sort of joke. My impression is 'he' is being made fun of. A short review of the site suggests he's a quack from the 1880s. There are a lot of dead links in this site, seemingly as if it is decaying. The Stanford URL gives it more authority than I think it merits. How long does Stanford let student pages stay up before letting them die a natural death?

Goodness, John!
The author of this site is some sort of Net weirdo, a visionary and a follower of Velikovsky, speculating about the end of the world -- see his main pages:

Maybe he's quoting dates from reliable sources, but I would't trust him.
