41. Comets Contagion and Contingency [SIS Internet Digest $]
... in Collision a quarter of a century before, and which, were it to be commonly accepted as true, would require a similar cataclysmic revolution of accepted scientific dogma[2,3,4,5,6. Although Velikovsky and Hoyle and Wickramasinghe have mounted very different attacks on accepted cosmology, in particular the inspiration for the two theories (historical in the case of Velikovsky and astronomical for Hoyle and Wickramasinghe) is quite different, the theories have curious similarities. Both of these extraordinary cosmologies attack accepted theories of evolution and palaeontology, both accept the possibility of extra-terrestrial life (although this has differing degrees of importance for the two theories), both have led the authors to make successful predictions about other members of the solar system (Venus, Jupiter and the moon in the case of Velikovsky, Halley's comet in the case of Hoyle and Wickramasinghe), and both sets of authors have found their predictions explained away after they have been fulfilled[7,8. A final irony, which would not, however, surprise Immanuel Velikovsky, is that ...

... the feet of an old Zulu who taught me to seize every moment, but also helped me to recognize the ones that are best left alone. I was sent to boarding school in Cape Town to be civilised. It didn't take, but I learned the game well enough to earn a degree in botany and zoology in 1958, before going on to study medicine. That was fun, but I missed the wild- and the luxury of having more than one species in my life. So I switched to an apprenticeship in palaeontology under my anatomy professor, Raymond Dart- the discoverer of Australopithecus, the first African hominid. This led to anthropological studies in Germany and Holland, and I ended up earning a Doctor of Philosophy degree in ethology under the exciting supervision of Desmond Morris at the London Zoo. While involved in archaeological fieldwork in Jordan in 1967, I was invited to direct the rebuilding of a major zoo in Johannesburg. And that led (it's a long story) to my appointment as a presenter and producer of documentary programs for BBC Television ...

... but some progress is evident. The work is translated from the German edition published in 1965, so it is not fully up-to-date and there is a shortage of English material in the bibliography; nevertheless it is recommended as a popular account of the subject. GROWTH RHYTHMS AND THE HISTORY OF THE EARTH'S ROTATION edited by G. D. Rosenberg and S. K. Runcorn Wiley 1975. Using the history of the Earth's rotation as a unifying theme, the editors present a collection of papers spanning various aspects of geophysics, astronomy, palaeontology and biology which survey methods of measuring the Earth's rotation, past and present. The direct techniques comprise biological growth increment measurement and ancient and modern astronomical observations, while the indirect methods involve theoretical calculations based on geophysical assumptions such as tidal friction, planetary expansion, decay of gravity and convection within the Earth. A useful- and interdisciplinary- handbook for those interested in Earth history. \cdrom\pubs\journals\review\v0105\20books.htm ...

48. Evidence for the Marine Deposition of Coal [SIS C&C Review $]
... The swing in the early nineteenth century by geologists to concepts of uniformity and geological ages influenced the palaeoecological interpretation of Spirorbis. Obviously the "bog theory" of coal formation cannot accommodate the abundant presence of a marine organism. Through the years this small annelid has been declared a salt-water worm throughout the geologic column except in the coal measures, where the supposed evidences for the in situ origin of coal made difficult the interpretation of Spirorbis at its face value [9. Consequently, seemingly without much question on the part of geologists and palaeontologists through the decades, this worm when found in coal and coal-bearing rocks has been designated a fresh-water dweller. This position has been taken despite the facts: (a) that Spirorbis today is completely limited to the marine environment. (b) that it reproduces by means of a trochophore larva, which, though characteristic of several marine phyla, is unknown for any fresh water invertebrates, and (c) that it is associated with obviously marine organisms throughout the geologic column, including the Carboniferous period. This highly questionable interpretation ...

... of these paper boats of theories is not solely in the hands of their constructors: they can't ensure that they will stay afloat if the evidence turns out to be against them. Indeed, their immediate job is not so much to argue that their theories are correct as to persuade other people that they are sufficiently interesting to be taken seriously and then tested. Nobody at this stage can tell whether the theory the Alvarezes have launched will stay afloat or eventually sink. But if they can capture the interest of others- geologists and palaeontologists in particular- there is no doubt that a lot more will be known about the details of the Cretaceous- Tertiary extinction. To travel, so to speak, is in itself worthwhile, even if it might be better to arrive." We wonder: Does Maddox know all the "rules of the game"?- R. M.
