91. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... ; Reflections in Natural History by S. J. Gould (London: Burnett Books/André Deutsch, 1978). STEPHEN JAY GOULD, Professor of palaeontology and evolutionary biology at Harvard University, has already established himself as a popular science writer through a regular column in Natural History, and is now reaching a much wider audience in Britain ... Burial", Gould answers the bold claim made by TOM BETHELL in "Darwin's Mistake" (Harper's, February 1976) that Darwinism has already been laid to rest by biologists, and in particular the suggestion that Darwin's concept of natural selection by "survival of the fittest" is not an explanatory principle but merely a tautology (or, ...

... threatening to fundamentally alter the nature of the rainforest". The story will quote Dr Dennis O'Dowd, "director of Monash University's new Centre for the Analysis and Management of Biological Invasions". "This could be catastrophic," he says. "I can think of no impact as large as this by a single invader in such a ... co-wrote a book, Lamarck's Signature, which proposes that acquired characteristics can be inherited. This defies Darwinian evolutionary principles, evoking jaded eyeball- rolling and head-shaking whenever senior molecular biologists gather together. Despite its radical nature, the work of Blanden and Schmidt is at the cutting edge of recognised scientific discovery, earning prominent positions on the safe side ...

Their assumption has of necessity predetermined the views of geologists and historical biologists. This dogma, basically of theological and not scientific nature . . . is grounded on fear. The dogma is groundless but the fear is real, and was ...

... would thrive in Jupiter's clouds. Indeed, it is tantalizing to speculate that some of the methane...we detect in the Jovian atmosphere might actually be caused by biological processes in the belts and zones. (55) Thus, not only are hydrocarbons like methane known to exist in Jupiter's atmosphere, but the scientific community speculates that ... it as a "not improbable theory." (51) All Velikovsky did was speculate about this question; he is not the only one to do so: Modern biologists toy with the idea that microorganisms arrive on the Earth from interstellar space carried by the pressure of light. Hence, the idea of the arrival of living organisms from ...
95. Poleshift [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... test the climate of any past period. Other evidence is always sophisticated by the fact that we may be attributing to climate what is due to other causes. But the biological evidence is unmistakable; coldblooded reptiles cannot live in icy water; semitropical plants whose habitat is the temperate zone, cannot ripen their seeds and sow themselves under arctic conditions ... grew in the Sahara. In addition, "the surface of the Sahara is strewn in places with milling and grinding stones from the New Stone Age.... biologists and scientists who study fossil pollens believe that the stones were used solely to grind wild grain-like grasses."27 Velikovsky further pointed out the rock drawing found in the ...

According to Tudge: Certain ". .. outstanding biological features militate against big animals. First... the importance of which can hardly be overstated, [is] population. Animal populations need to be big if ... to the south to survive the winters of the arctic because: "Many plants in the boreal forest and tundra are simply unpalatable or even toxic to large mammalian herbivores. Biologists have just begun to understand that that is part of a cycle peculiar to the north.... Permanently frozen ground and cold soils tie up nutrients. Plants ...

98. Genesis and The Origin of Species. C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . Helen's event was photographically the best recorded in history - the evidence directly contradicts Lyells' slow action over vast timescales. Here are two records of what may be instant biological evolution. 1. At Tunguska an international team that went to the epicentre about 1990 apparently found that under the centre of the blast there are a lot of mutated ... vast amount more iridium than it should do. The iridium must have come from an extraterrestrial source. The interesting thing to me was: why were the paleontologists and evolutionary biologists so unwilling to accept this explanation that virtually the rest of science said made good sense. I came up with a few reasons, some also mentioned by Trevor. ...
99. The Establishment of Gradualism [Books]
... : "One must draw on geology in searching for fossils and establishing their relative ages; but to identify the specimens and interpret their place in nature, one must know biology, particularly comparative anatomy. In this branch of science Cuvier excelled. He demonstrated that each major group of animals has its own peculiar body architecture. According to his ... were written by scientists with University posts: Hallam is Professor of Geology at the University of Birmingham; Gould is on the Faculty of Harvard University, being primarily an evolutionary biologist and palaeontologist, although he also teaches geology and the history of science; Huggett is a Lecturer in Geography at Manchester University; and Albritton was formerly a Professor of ...
100. Compendium [Journals] [Pensee]
... I began to discuss the matter with others in life sciences. For not only did I find a general interest in hearing what Dr. Velikovsky had to say about space biology, but I also discovered a keen awareness in some about the deeper implications of his various hypotheses. Because I had written a review on the subject of man's ( ... He raises the question of plausibility, an "intuitive assessment" of which is an essential control against scientific wrong turns: "No amount of evidence could convince a modern biologist that gestation periods are equal to integer multiples of . Our conception of the nature of things tells us that such a relationship is absurd... Suppose then that ...
