... representations of land forms for most areas of the world. [emphasis added These are strong words. These and similar protestations that geographers have registered for more than a generation appear to run into a blank wall of dogma. 5 Another elder statesman, this time in geophysics, has some interesting and similar conclusions: Scheidegger Thus, if the "deformation theory" applying to the Earth were properly defined, it would be, in principle, a straight-forward (though not necessarily an easy) matter to calculate the stresses from the ( ... Nevertheless, both Venus and Jupiter were involved in the energy/angular momentum exchanges. 1 A Review of 150 Years of Thought We cite the observations and conclusions of two elder statesmen of the last generation, Richard Hartshorne, a geographer, and Adrian Scheidegger, a geophysicist. Hartshorne To sum up, it is almost inevitable to admit that the physiographic evidence regarding features on the Earth's surface is such that it must be assumed that some parts of the Earth's crust have been subject to compression (crustal shortening), others have been ...

The analysis of such wave patterns is based on a number of physical and mathematical considerations. Detailed descriptions can be found in handbooks of geophysics, such as Dobrin (1960), Egyed (1950), and Szorokin e.a. (1953). In bodies of deformable material, ranging from liquids to solids, four basic wave patterns are distinguished: A longitudinal or press wave is a succession of ...

... the figures they quote." [A Star Called the Sun, George Gamow, p.93.THORNHILL COMMENTS: I included Gamow's comments as an example of the hubris of mathematical physicists and as a warning. It can be argued that astrophysics is in worse shape than geophysics. There is absolutely no way that anyone can be sure about the temperature of the center of the Sun. Yet confident statements like this are reported daily in the media as fact. It has resulted in the science fiction cosmology of today. More caution would ... and other stars without leaving his comfortable study at Cambridge University. 'It should not be too difficult,' Sir Arthur used to say, 'to understand such a simple thing as a star.' And he had very good reasons for that statement. Indeed, while geophysicists are still unable to agree on the exact value of the temperature in the center of the Earth, which is only about four thousand miles below our feet, astronomers can tell the temperature of the central regions of the Sun and of many other stars within a ...

... ! Meteorites from Mars? source: San Francisco Chronicle 11.12.81 The debate on the origin of SNC meteorites (shergottites, nakhtites and chassignites) continues; we have reported this before in Workshop 4:2, pp. 21-2. At a recent session of the American Geophysical Union Conference Charles Wood of NASA, Houston clashed with Ann Singer of the State University New York. Wood is in favour of a Martian origin for these meteorites, whilst Singer read a paper at the Conference proposing an asteroid origin. "... calculations ... Francisco Chronicle 30.1.82 With the "Alvarez theory" that a meteorite was responsible for the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary event still in vogue, there is news of yet another meteorite theory. Klaus Schultz of the McDonnell Centre for Space Sciences at Washington University St Louis, John Klasner a geophysicist at Western Illinois University, and William Cannon a geologist with the US Geological Surrey have been studying a "gravity map" of North America. This they have interpreted as showing evidence of a huge meteorite impact in Canada ("... a huge bull's-eye ...
106. Dark Matter [The Velikovskian $]
... the lengths to which astronomers and physicists will go to avoid questioning their most fundamental concept. A few years ago, the seeming discovery of discrepancies in gravity readings had led several physicists to suggest that a "fifth force"--a counterforce to gravity --existed. When the geophysicists argued that unseen masses under the Greenland ice cap could explain the measured discrepancy in gravity readings in the ice cap, Michael Nieto, a theoretical particle physicist from Los Alamos National Laboratory, argued, "You give him [a geophysicist any data and he can ... it with Newtonian physics....If he's got to put a neutron star down there, he can explain it [the anomaly." (17) Although the "fifth force" has faded from discussion and not been validated, the same kind of device --unseen matter --is being employed to mimic celestial motions in spiral galaxies. Halton Arp describes this concept regarding galactic rotation curves quite properly: Of course, most astronomers believe they know all about rotation curves of galaxies. They believe that the velocity of material in orbit is determined ...

109. Radiocarbon Dating and Velikovskian Catastrophism [Pensee]
... revolutionary a hypothesis as Velikovsky's. Therefore, it is necessary to measure physical parameters reliably recorded in the past and currently available for accurate analysis. The radiocarbon dating method offers such parameters, provided its basic premises can be verified. Moreover, since Velikovsky's hypothesis proposes profound geophysical changes, a geophysically-independent "clock" is required to test his claims, and only radioactive carbon decay promises that independence (2) together with sufficient sensitivity during historical times. The radiocarbon dating method is primarily a method of measuring carbon isotope ratios. When the ... is applied to samples of inorganic origin, the "dates" reflect primarily the radiocarbon ratio (that is, ratio of carbon 14 to carbon 12) of the samples, neglecting isotope fractionation (see below). When the method is applied to samples that once were living, the ratio reflects the approximate time since the demise of the organism. Thus, analysis of a series of cultural artifacts (organic in origin) can provide a time sequence, or chronology, of events. To yield consistent results, dating measurements must ...

[In 1963, Brown declared in a letter to one of Velikovsky's Canadian readers that his review of Earth in Upheaval had been directed against the 'abominable behaviour of scientists and publishers.
