... past. Interpretations at Fault source: Nature 338, p. 704 The Arabian peninsula was long thought to have been arid for millions of years and sandstone structures were thought to be fossil dune fields. When fossil fish were found in them a re-evaluation was forced upon palaeontologists: they now consider that the area was a well watered delta system for a greatly extended Tigris-Euphrates river system 8 million years ago. A recent expedition unearthed a very rich fauna, including ostrich egg shells twice as thick as any today- shades of Sinbad's mythical ... by the prevailing winds. All this does not give good grounds for faith in climatologists' prognostications about the future or pontifications about the past. Himalayan 'Piltdown' sources: Nature 338, pp. 613-615; Nature 341, pp. 11-16 An article by an Australian palaeontologist strongly indicated that over the last 25 years an Indian scientist has been describing fossils from all over the Himalaya which did not actually originate from the places he claimed. There were 'astonishing additions to the faunal lists' which caused 'revisions of stratigraphical alignments for virtually every ...
32. Fossil cemeteries [Catastrophism Geology $]
... addition to these slow transformations of the fauna and flora connected with climatic changes, which can be regarded as catastrophes only with the aforementioned reservations, we find in the annals of the Earth proofs of real catastrophes which in a short time exterminated large numbers of animals and plants. Their remains form whole strata of the earth's crust and may be called fossil cemeteries or fields of corpses. (....) Cemeteries of reptile corpses of Cretaceous age are known in North America and East Africa. In Mongolia recent expeditions of the Palaeontological Institute of the U.S.S.R. Academy of Sciences have also discovered in various places accumulations of bones of Cretaceous pangolins and even their nests with eggs, and in other places accumitilations of remains of Tertiary mammals. Similar cemeteries of Permian reptiles and amphibians are known in South America and in Germany. Accumulations of remains of Tertiary mammals are also found in the U.S.S.R.- Bessarabia, the Taman Peninsula and in Western Siberia near Lake Chelkar-Tengiz, in the basin of the Turgai River and near Pavlodar on the Irtysh River. Such cemeteries were ...

"It was the absence of transitional fossils that first made me question Darwin's idea of gradual change. I realised, too, that the procedures used to date rocks were circular. Rocks are used to date fossils: fossils are used to date rocks. From here I began to think the unthinkable: could Darwinism be scientifically flawed?" "I became an almost daily visitor at the Natural History Museum, looking more closely again at all the famous evidence I had been taught about: the evolution of horses, Archaeopteryx-- half-reptile, half-bird-- the peppered moth, the Galapagos finches and all the other totems of Darwinism." "One after another they crumbled as I subjected ...
34. Michael Cremo: Forbidden Archaeology: The Hidden History of the Human Race [SIS Internet Digest $]
... this valuable information. Michael spoke about the case of the 3.7 million year old footprints found in 1979 at Laetoli, Tanzania, by Mary Leakey, the mother of Richard Leakey. She said they were indistinguishable from those of modern man, homo sapiens sapiens, even though we have only been around for the last 100,000 years. As might be expected, the academic community ignored the implications of the humanlike footprints found by Mary Leakey. The situation was made all more complex when it was announced in the mid 1990s that palaeontologists in South Africa, led by Ron Clarke, had uncovered at Sterkfontein the skeleton of what they took to be the oldest ancestor of the human race. A member of the species known as Australopithecus, this hominid stood upright and had toes one and half times larger than those of modern man. Furthermore, his very long big toe stuck outwards at an angle, like a human thumb. Michael Cremo lectured at a conference on archaeology where Dr Clarke also presented a paper. Michael asked him why the foot of his Sterkfontein ...
35. Horses? [Alternative Science Website]
... Mysterious¦ Censorship¦ Books¦ FAQs¦ Pseudoscience¦ Book Reviews¦ Links Horses?[ Back[ Selection?[ Speciation?[ Darwin's finches[ Homology[ Horses?[ What else?[ How dare you?[ FAQ or Fiction? Q. Surely you have seen the convincing skeletal evidence for the evolution of the horse family? How can you dismiss it? A. Probably the best known of such fossil sequences is that of early horses discovered mainly in North America. Illustrations of this sequence figure prominently in textbooks on palaeontology and in natural history museums around the world. It is due to the passionate bone collecting of O. C. Marsh, professor of paleontology at Yale University, and his intense rival Edward Cope. Their materials were arranged by Henry Fairfield Osborn, director of the American Museum of Natural History. One of the principal modern champions of Osborn's evolutionary sequence for horses was George Simpson professor of palaeontology at Columbia and Harvard. Simpson himself made important fossil horse discoveries in Texas in 1924, and his 1951 book, Horses, first ...

Neanderthal Man "Restored" Darwinists are fond of restoring early fossil skulls to make them look primitive and apelike, as in the case of Neanderthal man shown here, restored under the direction of Henry Fairfield Osborn, professor of palaeontology at Columbia and director of the American Museum of Natural History. These restorations have for long determined how early humans are depicted in school and university text books and in encyclopaedia entries. But how reliable are they? Neanderthal man is depicted as a shambling brute, who walked with an apelike gait on the edge of his feet, his low sloping brow denoting his retarded mentality and antisocial tendencies. He was depicted as part-ape, part-human and ancestral to modern humans. But further fossils have revealed that Neanderthal man's posture was probably the same as modern humans and that far ...

... and even forest fires (indicated by bands of charcoal). The many species of animal found include plesiosaurs, usually considered to be marine, and certainly aquatic, although the area was well inland at the time. The researchers believe annual migration was unlikely and that, therefore, 'the biota lived under circumstances with no modern counterpart'; everything simply adapted to prolonged cold and dark. In which case, why did they not survive the cold and dark supposedly produced by an impact at the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary? Several fossils are giving palaeontologists problems. They appear to date from far earlier than their relatives in the north and some survive until much later. According to present ideas on dinosaur evolution they are in the wrong place and at the wrong time. Impermanent icecap Scientific American, March 1993, pp. 7-10 Researchers in Antarctica are viewing a growing body of evidence that 'the ice has fluctuated dramatically in the past few million years, vanishing outright from the entire continent once and from its western third perhaps several times.' They now realise that other factors besides ...
38. Forum [SIS C&C Review $]
... CNE) reviews a vast range of literature. Palmer demonstrates that there has been a trend away from Darwin's evolutionary hypothesis towards the actual evidence, leading to widespread (but as yet uncoordinated and undirected) doubts regarding the validity of many aspects of gradualistic evolution. However, natural selection rather than gradualism is the true hallmark of Darwinism. After he had proposed variation by adaptation as the means by which species can attain an ever-widening spread of characteristics, Darwin invoked natural selection to explain two well-attested and established phenomena- extinction and diversity. Palaeontological evidence of the extinction of vast numbers of species was explained by Darwin as their failure to compete with surviving species. This idea is now widely discredited: far too much of the evidence points to extinction by catastrophes which were wide-scale, perhaps global in their scope. It is not known whether those catastrophes were of terrestrial or extra-terrestrial origin; but it is clear that no amount of adaptation could enable species to resist the overwhelming physical calamities that beset them and their habitats. Thus while the catastrophes were phenomena of Nature in the ...
39. Cataclysm Chronicles [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1998:1 (June 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents Cataclysm Chronicles http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Delphi/7611/ Earth's forgotten past and uncertain future. The information presented here is, although startling, based as much as possible on competent scientific investigation in the fields of geology, astronomy, archaeology, palaeontology, and other relevant domains. This data base does not rely on psychic predictions, channelled information, remote viewing, alien contactees, or other speculative forms of data collection. The Cataclysm Chronicles does not wish to discredit all such speculative sources out-of-hand, but it is my intention to present information which is verifiable by a larger group. Data based on traditional scientific study is not only more easily verified, but it is also more difficult to dismiss. Features: The Giza Plateau, Egypt. History gives the impression that Ancient Egyptian civilization did not develop slowly, but appeared-- complete and intact-- very suddenly. Past and Future Pole Shifts? Worldwide geological upheavals are only possible if there is ...
