... of course be no more than an intellectual fudge designed to make the best of a bad situation: prearranged human bonding in relation to a supposed omnipotent yet benevolent divinity may meet a very immediate need for reassurance in respect of salvation from a predicted cosmic threat. But if sophistry fails, the human condition seems to be one in which secularists and hedonists in the name of condition seems to be one in which secularists and hedonists in the name of truth, beauty and freedom will commonly respond by pursuing such as millenarianism, utopianism and uniformitarianism, even as a recipe for revolution. With the "establishment' of such "enlightenment" it is a moot point of course whether English (n=2) will be the vehicle through which the knowledge and experience of western civilisation are transmitted beyond the next dark age. 9:45 Prof William Mullen, Bard College The Agenda of The Milesian School: The Post-catastrophic Paradigm Shift In Ancient Greece Topics held in common by the first three pre-Socratic philosophers from Miletos in the Sixth Century B.C.E., Thales, Anaximander, ...
73. Atlantis - The Lost Continent Finally Found [SIS Internet Digest $]
... (often improperly called a "tidal wave") caused by a very major submarine earthquake. The vestiges of the Flood are visible everywhere, but particulary over the North American continent, as the geologists are starting to realize. This tsunami and other consequences of the cataclysm caused the death, sudden or not, of some 70% of the major species of great mammals that once roved the earth. The reality of the Flood was consensually accepted by the naturalists of the past century. But Darwin and Lyell introduced the concept of Uniformitarianism (negation of cataclysms), which became the present paradigm of geological science. However, the better paleontologists and geologists are fast returning towards the ancient view, which is not only Sacred History, but Reality itself, as we found out in our researches on the matter. Q20: Is there a connection between Atlantis and the Great Pyramid? A: Yes. The Great Pyramid-- and indeed the pyramids the world over-- represents the Holy Mountain, which is no other than Mt. Atlas, the Pillar ...

... that no one in the entire 'community' has had the nerve or imagination to challenge the existing paradigm. The author (email@example.com) is a physicist with 36 years experience in technical disciplines, including satellites. He is an average American with a grown family of three, humble but fiercely independent, with a strong interest in the mystical aspects of our mortal existence. Fascinated by Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision, Angiras pondered that theory as planetary data poured in from space probes. Realizing that catastrophism gave better answers than the establishment uniformitarianism, he followed Velikovsky's example and conducted an extensive study of ancient myth in which he found the common thread which comprises the Velikovsky/Angiras scenario. ...

... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:1 (May 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents Announcements Lectures on the Saturn Model and the Electric Universe The following 3 slide-lectures have been prepared for presentation: Synthesis of evidence for big-picture view. This lecture covers a wide range of evidence for the Saturn Model and reflects on fundamental implications, including the collapse of uniformitarianism and gradualism, the influence on the world religions and theology, and the impact on racial psychology. Includes segments on: (a) Role of the Polar Configuration in the Saturn Model (b) Universal myth of the Golden Age (c) Universal myth of different ages and different "suns" (d) Global geo-physical evidence for the Planetary Alignment (e) Universal Cultural evidence for the Polar Configuration (f) The Catastrophic influence on word structure and development of language (g) Role of Plasma Effects in the alignment (h) Inter-planetary discharges and scarring (i) References in Modern Literature (j) Influences of Saturn on Time concepts and Time-keeping structures (k) Origin of major symbols ...

... military. But the Internet had to wait for Tim Berners Lee to invent the World Wide Web in 1990, and Marc Andreessen to invent the first graphical Web browser in June 1993, before it captured the public imagination. It feels like we're still waiting for catastrophism to re-capture the public's imagination. The word 'catastrophism' was first coined byWilliam Whewell in his "Review of Lyell's Principles of Geology," vol. II, in Quarterly Review, Vol. 93, March, 1832: 103-132 [for an historical account, see Uniformitarianism, Catastrophism and Evolution by Trevor Palmer in C&C Review 1996:1 People tend to prefer to visualise ideas. Velikovsky showed in Worlds in Collision that mythological stories and images could hold the key to our catastrophic past. But it seems that a bunch of ambiguous archaic drawings weren't quite enough to capture our imagination in the 20th century. The last 25 years has brought us thousands of full colour images of our Solar System and beyond. Everywhere we look, from the pitted moons of Mars, to the scarred satellites ...

78. THE BURNING OF TROY: PART FIVE: COMMUNICATING A SCIENTIFIC MODEL: CHAPTER : A COSMIC DEBATE [Quantavolution Website]
... Quantavolution.Org E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org TABLE OF CONTENTS THE BURNING OF TROY By Alfred de Grazia Part Five: Communicating a Scientific Model CHAPTER TWENTY-SEVEN A COSMIC DEBATE [1 I hope here to expound the ramifications of a coming cosmic debate in the sciences and humanities. All of the disciplines might be affected if, as a result of such a debate, there occurred a major shift away from the prevailing ideology of uniformitarianism in the direction of quantavolution or catastrophism. I attach the word "cosmic" to the debate with three meanings. First, as I have implied, it is cosmic in that all fields of knowledge are involved. Second, I must have reference to something of great importance, else why call it "cosmic"? Third, the subject will have something to do with cosmology- the nature of the earth, the skies and humanity. Also, the processes of cosmic change, creation and destruction, and the rate at which great changes occur. There remain then the words "coming debate." Debate requires two sides that are ...

... , MacKie himself returns to the Ballochroy-Beinn a Chaolais line in his summing up:... It is not surprising perhaps that such "future" solstice indicators are almost unknown, since the possibility of their existence has not been raised until now, and consequently they have not been looked for except by myself on the few occasions that the opportunity has presented itself. (page 17) A positive search for alignments which (assuming that, with MacKie, we accept the validity of these alignments as a working hypothesis) would refute uniformitarianism: it is difficult to imagine what purpose could be seen in such a course of action by anyone blindly committed to that cause, as Cardona supposes MacKie to be. Actually, as the attentive reader of the papers Dr. MacKie has published in Velikovskian journals will be aware, he is at pains to stress the inconclusive nature of the evidence for both sides. A major-- but not conclusive-- point in favour of catastrophism, for instance, is the sudden appearance of the sites, and this is considered ...

... article by H. E. Wright. 3 He analyzed pollen from cores of certain lakes in Iran. In the text of his article he stated that pollen production reached a peak about 5500 years ago and that these levels have since been maintained". However, the graph of his data revealed a large gap in the time region of catastrophes Velikovsky proposed and this gap was labeled "poor in pollen'. Certainly the straight line assumed for the gap is an interpretation and not necessarily one consistent with what actually occurred. UNIFORMITY Uniformitarianism is a philosophy based on the assumption that all geologic processes affecting the Earth in the past were those, and only those apparent today, and that they always operated at the intensities and rates that they do now. Geologic features are clearly influenced by the cumulative effects of gradual changes caused by now-active, small-scale agents, such as wind and rain. Geologists must recognize this as a starting point for most of their investigations. Unfortunately, as a corollary to this it has been assumed that geologists may not consider alternative agencies. ...
