142. A Comprehensive Theory on Aging, Gigantism and Longevity [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Why, in literally hundreds of species. are there giant antecedents to modern forms which have suddenly, and simultaneously, and continuously become reduced in size?1 As a third and seemingly unrelated question, are the ancients' claims of longevity on the order of 900 years to be taken seriously rather than considered as mythology? Is there a biological mechanism resulting in ancient gigantism or longevity? The theme of this work consists of heterodox, but defensible answers to these and similar questions. It is fairly well known that the fossil record contains 10-foot ostriches, 20-foot ground sloths, 12-foot armadillos, 14-foot turtles, beavers as large as contemporary bears, and so forth. The orthodox thesis ...
143. Pentecost [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... part, man is an electrical creature. The natural currents within our bodies are small, but their role is extremely significant; they govern our very lives. These minute currents can nevertheless be disrupted or overridden. In particular, "extremely low frequency (ELF) fields have the capacity to penetrate buildings and living tissue and hence are potential biological stimuli."[1 ] And when this happens, our perceptions can falter and our reactions and response times might prove beyond our control. Such stimuli might have many unpredictable effects upon man- but there are a few that can be described from experience. As to perception, certain fields can excite the human auditory system in such ...
144. Collective Behaviorism and Ancient Astronomy [Journals] [Horus]
... historical cultures the assumption of continuity in meaning from prehistoric, times seems reasonable. Evidence of significant food surpluses from domesticated crops and animal husbandry further suggest the likelihood of a long pre-history of cultural tore regarding the relation between astronomical and seasonal cycles. It also was observed that the basis for this global cultural phenomenon lies at far more fundamental (biologically rooted) levels than is proposed by the traditional view that ancient astronomy was a wholly intellectual achievement. It was shown that, from the perspectives of behavioral science, Nature is so arranged that not only human beings but much of the animal kingdom as well would acquire certain astral/ seasonal/behavioral associations through conditioned learning alone. The ...

We have seen in Section II of the present chapter what radiations are and under what conditions they are emitted. It should be remembered that radiations comprise: (a ) Material particles, which are electrically charged (a-and B-particles). (b ) Electro-magnetic waves: X-rays and y-rays. We have also mentioned ...
146. Religion and Education [Books] [de Grazia books]
... their academic locker rooms receiving congratulations. A few fans, carried away by remote analogies, say that we will have to tolerate Reaganism awhile longer, but at least not that bit about God building the world in a week. The expert testimony against the law may have been misleading, however, as to the current posture of science respecting biological change. Walter Sullivan (NYT Dec. 27) has deftly indicated the short-fall of truth: that theories of evolution now also include theories of genesis in outer space or in transferences from cosmic bodies; that evidence of transitional types or "missing links" in evolution is today scarcely richer than in Charles Darwin's time; and that, ...

148. Why People Believe Weird Things: Pseudoscience, Superstition, and Other Confusions of Our Time [Journals] [Aeon]
... chapters dealing with so-called scientific creationism, rightly exposed as the epitome of an oxymoron and a wolf in sheep's clothing- i.e . religion posing as science- that stand out. These chapters should be required reading for students everywhere. Chapter 9 describes an evening in debate with Dr. Duane Gish, probably the most famous of the biologists espousing creationist views. Chapter 10 provides a very handy list of 25 leading creationist arguments together with detailed answers to each. Chapter 11, finally, presents a thorough summary of recent court actions designed to force creationist science upon an ever more scientifically illiterate, and hence more gullible, general public. Shermer's discussion here, as throughout the ...
149. The Unworkable Polar Saturn [Journals] [Aeon]
... is nothing to warrant the notion that in prehistoric human times, the physiological cycles of advanced forms of life such as seals could have been so very much faster than at present. For these palaeoclimatic and palaeozoological reasons, the model is excluded. Avoiding the Saturnian tidal pull calls for a distance from Saturn of the Earth that is climatically and biologically implausible. If Earth is further from Saturn than 7,000,000 kilometers, to increase the orbital period and thus the biological cycle, the subannual fluctuation of temperature is worsened, and because Earth's distance from Saturn would then approach 7,600,000 kilometers, at which the Sun could detach Earth from Saturn's subsystemic orbit, ...
150. The Rise and Fall of Man (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... they certainly contain a surprising amount of truth and good observation; but they do not answer the question: Where does man come from? Nor indeed can this chapter offer any solution to this problem; it can only make it more difficult by introducing into it a peculiar element: the influence of the cataclysms. This influence is twofold: biologically, urging man generally upwards; culturally, throwing him down repeatedly from the heights he has reached, but making him inventive and intelligent. Before we enter upon a discussion of these points we shall recapitulate, very briefly, what man thinks he knows about man. The creation' of man out of stones or bones was only possible ...
