111. Neocatastrophism? [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... a natural organization in the history of the Earth that has to be unravelled. It is, therefore, singularly surprising that Stepanov denies the occurrence of turning points in the biological evolution which form the signposts in any natural system of division. He does, on the other hand, recognize quite clearly in a general description of the Carboniferous System ... 270-279 Sclzuy K., 1960. Zur Wencle Prgkambrium/Kambrium. Paläont.

112. The Erratic Descent of Man [Books]
... time [4 ,194-197]. Nevertheless, regardless of the argument about stasis, there is now general agreement that hominid species appeared and disappeared rapidly. The relationship between biological and cultural evolution is also less than straightforward. There is some evidence that A. robustus had a hand capable of sophisticated manipulation ; australopithecines may have ... in New Scientist: "The certainty that a molecular clock could not exist was a reaction to a particularly bizarre piece of theoretical nonsense, orthogenesis, that had entranced evolutionary biologists for several decades early in the century. The notion was that evolution was driven internally and inexorably in particular directions and at a steady rate. According to this theory ...
113. Uniformitarian Or Catastrophist? Ice Age Theory [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... to make scientists recognize new foundation principles. Thomas Kuhn gives examples from the physical sciences, his expertise, to demonstrate this. There are just as many examples in the biological sciences. What about the facts? Aren't they scientifically solid? Yes, if facts are observed, and "all" the observations are adequately described. This last ... Coleman wrote, "Scores of methods of accounting for ice ages have been proposed and probably no other geological problem has been so seriously discussed by glaciologists, by meteorologists and biologists; yet no theory is generally accepted. The opinions of those who have written on the subject are hopelessly in contradiction with one another, and good authorities are arrayed ...
114. The Cautious Revolutionary [Journals] [SIS Review]
... knowledge of arts and sciences but carries his learning lightly (" I am tradesman, not a polymath. What I know of planets and politics lies at their intersection with biological evolution."). Subjects range from immense but perhaps not-so-dumb dinosaurs to the mite which dies before it is born, and it is a pleasure to travel the ... 1974, have a deserved reputation for sparkle, perception, controversy and common sense. Gould is on the faculty of Harvard University, and is primarily a palaeontologist and evolutionary biologist, although he also teaches geology and the history of science. For relaxation he sings baritone with the Boston Cecilia Society, and has a liking for Gilbert and Sullivan ...
115. Velikovsky and Catastrophism: A Hidden Agenda? [Journals] [Aeon]
... the scientific climate that existed in Europe during the last half of the nineteenth century. In a word, if Lyell and Darwin were correct about the history of geology and biology, the Bible was false. If speculation about the size and age of the universe, the distances of stars and the structure of heavenly systems was correct, the ... to be accepted in science itself as we approach the 21st century, cosmic and earthly stability are interims between the violent moments of cataclysm which have always punctuated (to use biologist Niles Eldredge's word) the uniformitarian epochs which science alone records. This means nothing less than that Germanic science is being forced to agree with the Jewish Bible, as ...
116. Intensity, Scope and Suddenness [Books] [de Grazia books]
... proof of exoterrestrialism. So would "The extinction of 3+ species in less than 1 year," or "Depopulation by 70% of l+ species of 10 biological families in less than a year in an area of 1,000 km diameter." A number of phrasings may be formulated to denote physical catastrophe in biological terms ... great turbulence inside the Earth alone. Still this conviction - or is it a hope - persists. Geologists tend to believe that nothing grave ever happened in the skies; biologists often look upon the rocks as gift-wrappings for their fossils; astronomers are inclined to believe that nothing serious happened upon Earth; anthropologists and historians usually believe that ancient times ...
117. Freud and Velikovsky Part I [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... of Moses and Monotheism, by Ernest Jones's wife, which appeared March 1939, we would probably still be blundering in the Egyptian darkness which prevailed in astronomy, physics, biology, psychology, and history before Immanuel Velikovsky delivered Worlds in Collision and Ages in Chaos. Velikovsky set out to explode the foundations of Freud's myth about monotheism. Velikovsky ... What he called a congress was a meeting of minds which can now be seen as bordering on amorous communication. They talked about Fliess's darling theory of bisexuality. The Berlin biologist had speculated on the fate of mankind if there was but one eye in the middle of the head, Cyclops-like. Freud's imagination was enchanted with these words on the ...
118. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the prejudiced scientist must attack. Failure to do so would precipitate depression." This observation is supported by Andre M. Bennett in his paper in the journal Perspectives in Biology and Medicine , where he writes: "Like all true believers, the scientist committed to certain established beliefs resists encroachments with every resource at his disposal ... biblical story of Creation, that the solar system has remained unchanged since it was created eons ago, and their assumption has of necessity determined the views of geologists and historical biologists. This dogma, being basically of theological and not scientific nature, is grounded itself on fear, as Gilileo and Laplace have pointed out. The evidence is that ...
119. Sagan's "Ten Plagues" [Journals] [Kronos]
... extensive melting in these centuries, near where the tidal distortion is greatest?" What can one say, except "Read Velikovsky's books"? PROBLEM V. CHEMISTRY AND BIOLOGY OF THE TERRESTRIAL PLANETS Sagan now piles on the charges, one after another: "He [Velikovsky] seems not to know (page 16) that oxygen is ... be most destructive to animals and plants, and moderate rises in temperature with high humidity would destroy many living things. It seems likely that interesting studies could be made by biologists and paleontologists in regard to the selection of survivors of such catastrophes. . ." In his main text Sagan argues that five or six near-collisions of Venus and Mars ...
120. Thoth Vol I, No. 23: August 17, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... support for science. Scientific education has become so specialized that scientific literacy is little more advanced among scientists than it is among non-scientists. Undergraduates who have completed courses on cell biology and evolution are unable to discuss broad issues in evolutionary theory, let alone Earth history or cosmogony, in any greater depth than can their non-scientist peers. "Physics ... he is not a master." Freeman Dyson extended this apology in Origins of Life (ref. 2) more than 40 years later, only to discover that many biologists had not yet forgiven Schrodinger and now were annoyed at him as well . At less exalted levels of discourse, the imperative to segregate oneself within one's specialism is strong ...
