21. Paradigm Lost? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... serious are his misunderstandings about evolutionary theory itself and also some confusions about terminology. For example, Milton uses microbiology' throughout (without explanation or definition) to mean molecular biology', when it actually means biology of micro-organisms'. For example, he writes: There are two particular areas in which evidence from microbiology is used to substantiate ... Furthermore, these 18 include works by such authorities' on evolutionary theory as the astronomer, Sir Fred Hoyle, and the creationist, Henry Morris. Hoyle's limitations as a biologist are well known (see, for example, C & C Review XIII, pp. 63-68), and Morris is notorious for his selective use of data and ...
22. Evolution from Space [Articles]
... . It is a pleasure to be here. The question of the origin of life is perhaps THE most interdisciplinary question in the whole of science. Traditionally, it connects biology, geology, chemistry and physics, but I shall endeavour to show you today that it must encompass also subjects such as epidemiology, as the Chairman hinted, and ... dozens of schools across the country Before I pass on to my next topic, I think it is interesting to know that about a year and a half ago two Russian biologists and one physicist carried out an experiment to collect micro-organisms in the stratosphere, at 70 km above the Earth's surface. If you think about it, 70 km is ...
23. Challenges to Evolutionary Gradualism [Books]
... Darwin, its effects might be concentrated in small populations rapidly forming new species. Thus, when geneticists finally reasserted gradualism in the 1930s and soon thereafter came to dominate evolutionary biology, paleontology remained in a peripheral role. It had become one of the evolutionary fields that before the turn of the century was scorned for being at once speculative and ... . Pavlova and D. N. Sobolev thought they had occurred over millions of years as a consequence of more mundane environmental changes . As far as evolutionary biologists in general were concerned, there can be no doubting the fact that the latter view prevailed. In Julian Huxley's large and definitive work, Evolution - The Modern Synthesis ...
24. Uniformitarianism, Catastrophism and Evolution [Journals] [SIS Review]
... so well-informed, remained oblivious of its destruction, possibly in company with many others? To answer those questions, it is necessary to examine the interacting histories of geology and biology in somewhat greater detail than previously. I did discuss the work of James Hutton and Georges Cuvier, showing Hutton was far from being a paragon of all the scientific ... for his opposition to evolution and for seeing evidence in the geology of the Paris basin for a series of catastrophes (which he called revolutions'), the eminent evolutionary biologist, Ernst Mayr, had this to say in his major historical work, The Growth of Biological Thought: It is often stated that his firm adherence to Christianity precluded ...

Biology of the Cell Bruce Lipton BRUCE LIPTON is a citobiologist (cell biologist) whose talk is on the paradigm breaking "biology of the cell". His first question, is where is the cell's "brain". According to Darwin ...
26. The SIS Evolution Debate Continued [Journals] [SIS Review]
... abruptly into new states of organizational complexity. It seems clear that it is this tendency, rather than random mutation and natural selection, that is the essential mode of progressive biological evolution. .. . "The power behind evolutionary change, then, is the continual forcing of the biosphere away from its usual state of dynamic equilibrium, either ... title of his major work, largely concerned himself with discussing mechanisms by which populations might evolve, without ever seriously addressing the thorny problem of speciation; and most subsequent evolutionary biologists have done likewise. Bernard is absolutely right when he says that the weak viability of the cheetah, after having apparently passed through an evolutionary bottleneck some 10,000 ...
27. Whimsical Aspects of Scientific Theory [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... (June 1976) Home | Issue Contents Whimsical Aspects of Scientific Theory Norman MacBeth Springfield, Vermont, U. S. A. My training was in law rather than biology, but around 1960 I began to study Darwinian evolution theory and since that time I have read about three hundred pounds of biological literature. The bulk of this concerned ... H. Huxley pointed to glaring flaws in Spencer's own arguments. He might be weak, but his rival was weaker. This tactic is not a monopoly of evolutionists or biologists. Harlow Shapley, the astronomer, asserted that cosmic evolution was a good hypothesis because "no other supposition is at this moment tenable." C. W. ...
28. Racial Memory and Instinct: The Case of the Honeyguide [Journals] [Aeon]
... magnum opus, Philosophie Zoologique, was published in 1809 and subsequently languished in obscurity until Darwin's On the Origin of Species made evolution a household word and the cornerstone of the biological sciences (the word biology was actually coined by Lamarck). In Lamarck's system, an animal's behavior played a decisive role in its evolution, both in selecting its ... feedback between somatic cells and the genome during embryogenesis, it becomes impossible to deny similar means of feedback during the life of the organism. The case of the honeyguide presents biologists with a dilemma: Do we accept the perfectly logical Lamarckian explanation of the symbiosis between the greater honey-guide and mammals as reflecting the inherited effects of experience and habit even ...

... be called an admissible possibility) also turns out, for events of this kind, to look hopelessly unbelievable. The dismaying implications is that there must be, in real biology, some third mode of causation for such events- one that is not strictly mechanical, yet not strictly unnatural either. I cannot pretend to comprehend such a paradoxical ... not aware that he had been influenced by Samuel Butler. I suspect that Butler has had more influence in scientific circles than is generally believed, particularly in England. Mainstream biologists, however, are understandably reluctant to mention him with favor. As for Mr. Mebane's statement that Karl Popper refused to kowtow to Darwin's traditional status as a great ...

... hard facts, has an important bearing on the prehistory of life. The problem here is of real and important concern. Such a serious implication should not be ignored by biological and earth scientists.

Global cycles of crustal tension or compression seem not to be demonstrable.'(c ) Phantom Continents were often invented by geologists and biologists to explain curious discrepancies in the distribution of fauna and flora, both existing and fossil. These continents were deemed formerly to have occupied areas of the present oceans and ...
