121. Radiocarbon Dating The Extinction [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... register far older than they actually are? I suggest that the evidence regarding this question is well understood and can be well explained by known natural geophysical, meteorological, and biological processes. To wit, the more carbon 12 and carbon 13 that organisms such as wood, leaves, bone, or soft tissues take in from their environment, ... or one pregnant female this would be found in a lack of variability in the genetic makeup of all subsequent crosses of the species. According to Elizabeth Pennisi, "molecular biologists drove... [the] point home with compelling data showing that wild... cheetahs have no more genetic variability than highly inbred strains of laboratory mice ...
122. Catastrophism and the Mammoths - I (Vox Populi) [Journals] [Kronos]
... the materials are, in any sense, irrational or illogical. They are perfectly rational and orderly, and have a logic all their own. But that logic is not biological or geological or paleontological or even chronological. It is cosmological and theological" [Ibid., p. 15] . Cf., for example, D. ... W. R. Farrand, op. cit., p. 729- P. S. Martin & J. E. Guilday, "A Bestiary for Pleistocene Biologists" in P. S. Martin & H. E.

123. The Inconstant Heavens [Books] [de Grazia books]
... live in a world where the only divinity is Fortuna and nothing is certain beyond measurement and probability. As Freud contends, neuroses originate from the failure, due to inferior biological endowment combined with stunted psychic growth, to face the burden of the human condition in a world that owes us nothing. Some contemporary thinkers were frightened, for the ... 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 Galileo and Laplace have pointed out. The evidence is that ...
124. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the landscape and its inhabitants. In 1400 BC an eruption created a 6 mile wide caldera and covered an entire peninsular with 45 feet of ash. The resulting 20 mile biological dead zone may have been a major factor in the separation of the Aleut and Eskimo cultures. In 300 BC one earthquake dropped the western Alaskan peninsular by 9- ... 14.6 .03. p. 50; 31.5 .03, pp. 32-35)) John Maynard Smith, one of the 20th century's greatest evolutionary biologists, has challenged the basis for using mitochondrial DNA as a molecular clock' to date evolutionary events. This relies on mitochondrial DNA passing down the female line and only ...
125. Sinking and Rising Lands [Books] [de Grazia books]
... the last glacial period, between 10,000 and 12,000 years ago." Probably in any sample of books and articles on quaternary geology, paleontology, evolutionary biology, and archaeology, most authors will be found to use the "end of the ice age" as a general synonym for catastrophe. From pole to pole and ... of anthropoid apes lived somewhere in the tropical zone - probably on a great continent that has now sunk to the bottom of the Indian Ocean." Ernst Haeckel, German biologist, named the proto-human "pithecanthropus," and assigned its origins to Lemuria; he said it migrated from there to India, Africa and South-East Asia; indeed, ...
126. Catastrophism and the Compulsion to Meaning [Journals] [Kronos]
... now of prime importance in the description of ecosystems. It refers to the theory that living and non-living components in an ecosystem function together as a whole according to physical and biological laws which could not be deduced separately from the parts. The holism of the archaic mind is such that it cannot account for man in anything but terms borrowed from ... priori" is indirectly connected with experience in so far as it has been formed through the development of the human mind in a very distant past. Following this argument the biologist Lorentz has once compared the "a priori" concepts with forms of behaviour that in animals are called "inherited or innate schemes". It is in fact quite ...

... the local chapter of the Amateur Astronomers Association on October 15. And Rene Gallant, a long-time correspondent of Velikovsky's, published Bombarded Earth (An Essay on the Geological and Biological Effects of huge Meteorite Impacts), in which he prominently referred to Velikovsky's research and outlook; and Jacques Barzun noted the "typical guild animus" the scientific community ... Kronos, a professional, refereed journal devoted to Velikovskianism. The first Cosmos and Cronos session was convened on January 18, 1965. Originally, Colin Pittendrigh, a Princeton biologist, had agreed to debate Velikovsky on the issue of "Catastrophism and Earth History." Based on his earlier discussions with Velikovsky, in 1963 Pittendrigh had raised among ...
129. The Determinants of Scientific Behaviour [Journals] [SIS Review]
... into apparently "pure" science. Rose and Rose (1971) and Young (1971) argue that paradigms are never value-free or neutral, and provide illustrations from evolutionary biology. Finally, although the massiveness of the direct impact of government and industry on scientific research is fairly recent, the impact itself is a longstanding one, as a ... of circumstances, judgement always must be used. The man who claims to be able to see little white bugs that are invisible to everyone else, and asks a famous biologist to investigate before the bugs take over, presumably is not in need of long and detailed taxonomic advice. (In our society, other sorts of advice might be ...
130. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the carbon dioxide was widespread volcanic activity in the North Atlantic at the time, cause unknown. The subsequent drop in carbon dioxide levels may have been rapidly effected by a biological feedback mechanism whereby huge blooms of plankton absorbed much of the excess gas. Evidence for this is found in ocean sediments from the period. There is also evidence of ... originating in space, arriving on Earth from other planets via meteorites and impact debris and existing deep in the Earth, are now being taken seriously by astronomers, geologists and biologists. More than 100 simple organic molecules have been found in space and this list now includes simple sugars. One team of scientists is investigating how well bacteria might survive ...
