131. Fossil Deposits [Books] [de Grazia books]
... public over a century ago, is due for a reassessment in the light of current knowledge especially since a new element is found at the well-known scene, radioactivity. "Anomalous high radioactivity has been detected in Homosteus, a fish from the same Old Red Sandstone beds in which Pterichthyodes occur," writes Hans Kloosterman . We ... of heavy electric fields and poisonous gases are given credence; perhaps these may have helped in the fossilizing process. A fossil is typically an accident, a disaster, an anomaly. We should not find in Ecuador a mixture of mastodon bones, pottery, and coal. Nor reptiles with full stomachs, pterosaurs swallowing food, a mammoth with ...
132. The Ninsianna tablets, a preliminary reconstruction [Journals] [SIS Review]
... respectively, the implications of which are further discussed below. The very high observed spin rate between Events 5B and 7, 375.45 days per year, is potentially anomalous in terms of the explanation so far offered. Whilst it could be that there was a temporary increase in the absolute spin rate of the Earth at this time, ... there were actually faults, or mistakes', in the raw data. I find neglect of possible changes in apparent latitude of observer to be a potential cause of minor anomalies. Another secondary factor which has had to be neglected is the possibility (even probability) of shifts of the longitude of perihelion of the orbits of Earth and Venus ...
... the past motions of Venus were so disturbed by planetary near collision which certainly could have changed Venus' rotational direction. This explanation does seem to fit this evidence of gross anomalous rotational behavior quite well. Sagan, in his co-authored book, Intelligent Life in the Universe, p. 325, says, "The cause of the retrograde rotation ... . After discussing the high elevations of Beta and Aphrodite, he states, "From what we understand about planets, there's simply no way in which these [high] anomalies could be supported by the strength of the interior of the planet. They are probably supported by dynamic mechanisms, upwelling of the mantle." Thus, even if ...
134. Reexamination of the Foundations [Journals] [Pensee]
... encyclopedic knowledge of the details relating to his fantastic theories. I am sure that most find his theories almost too incredible to believe, but his varied predictions and accounts of anomalous behavior have repeatedly been verified- such anomalies as the isotopic composition of lunar material and Venus' rotation period (found to equal its synodic period) are but two examples ... many. Nevertheless, his theories depart too radically from accepted dogma to be acceptable unless other, more reasonable, accounts of the new discoveries are not forthcoming. We wish Velikovsky well in the completion of his work and we eagerly await the promised new accounts of it from his publishers. We hope that this issue of Pensee will help to ...
135. My Challenge to Conventional Views in Science [Journals] [Kronos]
... magnetism of rocks and lavas, not just to photograph soil particles attractable to a magnet. As just explained, iron particles will be found in abundance. In future probes anomalous remanent magnetism will be discovered near places where electrical bolts emerged or fell. 3. To search for expressed radioactivity of the rocks and regolith, especially near large circular ... , carbides and traces of aromatic hydrocarbons, and rich radioactivity of the rocks and dust- evoked exclamations of surprise and at best some far fetched, ad hoc hypotheses. Magnetic anomalies, especially where interplanetary bolts fell, and huge enclaves of neon and argon 40 in lunar rocks, were also claimed by me in advance of the findings. ( ...
136. Generalists, Specialists, "Pereset", and Ancient Astronomical Awareness [Journals] [Kronos]
... Parsit), the current state of our knowledge leaves us with two possible interpretations of the writing in question: (1 ) a nisbe ending .tyw (with slightly anomalous orthography) attached to a consonantal base p-r-s, which can be interpreted as "people of Persia," i.e ., "Persians," and ( ... preferable to seek an explanation along more orthodox lines. On the other hand, bearing in mind the context of Velikovsky's reconstruction of history, it could be argued that this anomaly is explainable as influenced by Greek thought. Still, I would prefer an explanation grounded in established philological principles: an explanation so derived would serve to corroborate Velikovsky's identification ...
137. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... scepticism, preferred to reserve judgement. Another discussion involving Roy and Vaughan concerned the degree of credence to be given to " hypothetical" ancient observations which would appear to indicate anomalous movements of the planets in the past. A Glaswegian participant, ALEX AIKEN, briefly took over the blackboard for a theoretical demonstration of how a highly eccentric planetary orbit ... , long after the Empire had allegedly collapsed. In the absence of a re-alignment of Near Eastern history which would make the Empire contemporary with the "Neo-Hittite" states, anomalies abound; for instance, the only Mycenaean pottery found at the major Hittite centre of Carchemish was on a 10th or 9th century floor. The message of the paper ...
138. Comalcalco: A Case for Early Pre-Columbian Contact and Influence? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... He recently delivered a paper on Comalcalco at a conference organised by the universities of Milan and Bergamo in Italy. Summary The remains of Comalcalco in Tabasco, Mexico, display anomalous features which are not found elsewhere in the Maya region - particularly the use of fired clay brick, instead of the usual limestone, in one construction phase. Fired ... of fired brick masonry from a foreign source would also necessitate the adoption of foreign structural styles could be considered as a non-sequitur. It is worth noting that Comalcalco displays architectural anomalies. Two ruins, both within the area of the Great Acropolis and in the immediate vicinity of the Palace, contain neither the general characteristics of a palace-type structure nor ...
139. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... confirmation or a denial of the arguments presented in this letter. Delair also commented that the axial tilt of the earth (relative to the plane of its orbit) appears anomalous and that one would expect the spin axis of an undisturbed planet to remain at a right angle to the plane of its orbit. I am not sure how he ... On that basis it is actually possible that it was the Phoenicians who explored and mapped the Antarctic coast and the continent of America too. It would explain a lot of anomalies. Phillip Clapham, Hazlemere, Bucks. Worlds in Collision after Heinsohn On C&CR 1997:2 , p. 15 ( 'Worlds in Collision after Heinsohn ...
140. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the future, that "only a counter-quantevolution - a revolution of equal force - can dissipate and control the negative effects of ancient quantevolutions; and this cannot be natural or anomalous but must be invented". Building on psychoanalytic theory, Dr de Grazia asserted that wars, aggression and other compulsive and punitive behaviour result from man's need to " ... to you flat statements about the mid-second-millennium catastrophes. I'm saying that in every sphere of existence we find nothing but catastrophic evidence at that time; and that if there are anomalies, these anomalies are on the side of the opponents of Dr Velikovsky's theses." The purpose of this was to change the terms of the debate, putting the ...
