301. The Evolutionist-Creationist Battle: A Threat to Catastrophist Evolution (Focus) [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Just how then did the Creationists come to be so resoundingly declared both non scientific and blatantly religious? We can do no better than quote Science 8.1 .82, p. 142 "A key aspect of the defense's overall case was that a two-model approach was valid. In other words, the only possible explanations of the natural biological world are evolution or creation as defined in Act 590. This dualism was essential to the legal argument because it would surely be unconstitutional to present only two of many possibilities. [Here we must whole-heartedly concur.] .. . the status of evolutionary theory was not an issue in the case. Creationism was on trial not evolution ...
302. Darwin. Ch.2 To Know And Not To Know (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... for livelihood, and benefiting from chance variations, all of them evolving from a few unicellular organisms, as though mere competition (" survival of the fittest") could produce from the same animal ancestor a winged bird, a winding snake, a multilegged insect and man. With our present knowledge of the phenomena of transmutations of elements and biological mutations that take place in extreme conditions, thermal or radioactive, we no longer need subscribe to the idea that eons of competition for the means of existence caused wings to grow on land creatures and the entire population of land, air and water to evolve from a common ancestor. But whatever the cause of evolution- in his time ...
303. Reviews [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... vividly set for them a few days before by Keith Hindley in "Down to Earth with a Bump", an article describing technically the possibilities and effects of meteoritic impacts on the Earth. It is obvious that cosmologists and geologists have come to accept impacts of various grades as a way of life; only the students of life, the biologists, are still reluctant to entertain the idea of any sudden catastrophes affecting life from beyond our little Earth. Hindley presented as fact items still controversial - such as the origin of tektites (see Workshop 3:1 , p. 18; 3:3 , p. 18 and 4:2 , p. 15). He ...
304. "There's No Hiding Place Down There". Ch.3 In Fear And Trembling (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... in, the events that express God's wrath. For instance, wars are inevitable and necessary, but they are absolute pacifists and have been jailed in Hitler's Germany, U.S .S .R ., U.S .A ., etc. for refusing military service. "Their publications indicate constant research in the fields of biology, geology, astronomy, physics, archaeology, etc. in a search for data on catastrophes, past and present, that indicate the end of one age and the beginning of another and that indicate we are living in the time of the end'. They are usually well-written articles that do not distort the factual data, but ...
305. The New Orthodoxy's Respect for Fact [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... An Unsung Single-Celled Hero',(13) Gould cheers: "The great geologist Charles Lyell argued that a scientific hypothesis is elegant and exciting insofar as it contradicts common sense." Here, he is praising one Steven M. Stanley of John Hopkins University on his development of the theory that the "cropping principle" may be a biological control. "Stanley", says Gould, "did not develop his theory from empirical studies of Precambrian communities. It is a deductive argument....(14) After listing Stanley's four reasons for accepting his theory, Gould says: "Stanley does not invoke proof by new information obtained from rigorous experiment. His second ...
306. Are The Venus Tablets Missing?, Atwater Thrown Overboard. File I (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... a footnote but does not indicate their content. In fact, systematic observations of Venus are at least as old as 3000 B.C . Ancient Babylonians and Egyptian watchers of the skies saw the planet exactly as we see it. Kaempffert ended his article with angry words about a theory that requires the rewriting of every textbook on astronomy, biology, geology, cultural anthropology, and ancient history. If not for the years that must have been needed to collate the hundreds of citations and footnotes, one might have thought the book a hoax. These Venus tablets of Ammizaduga, which "disproved" my theory completely and which I had omitted to consider, made the rounds and ...
307. "Professors As Suppressors". File II (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... with an international reputation, the professors wouldn't even talk. Although some of the critics who reviewed Velikovsky's book considered it a major scientific contribution, there could be little question but that it had driven the vast majority of the nation's scientists into a highly unacademic fury. For Velikovsky challenges all the present concepts and laws of history, astronomy, biology, and geology.... Whether the attack on the Velikovsky book and the Macmillan company was merely an outburst of their resentment against an attack on themselves or whether it was an organized campaign last week remained a matter of controversy. In the "New York Post," columnist Leonard Lyons declared that it was an organized campaign ...
308. The Harvard Crimson Blushes. File II (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... many people trying to discredit and silence him? After giving a correct presentation of the content of the book, the Harvard Crimson went on: Dr. Velikovsky draws his proofs from a wide range of fields and sciences: from cross-checking the world's folk legends and classical literature, and re-examining ancient astronomical observations- to bringing forth geological, archaeological, biological and psychological data. Hence, if his theories, or any large part of them, are found to be valid, scientists in a great many fields will have to change the underpinnings of their life's work. If the force which caused the earth to stop rotating briefly was magnetic, then the whole Newtonian theory of gravitation (which ...
309. Book Reviews [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... physical processes in the Earth prior to an earthquake which could be responsible for this charging. His initial attempts to get papers published by scientific journals met, inevitably, with little success. He concluded that: "The standards for scientific work are simply too high to allow individuals to make convincing starts in an interdisciplinary field where little-understood geophysical, biological, and psychological events interact." This is a cry with which followers of Velikovsky's work will fully sympathise. However, in the years since the Friuli earthquake, cracks have appeared in the scientific armour of derision. The Chinese system of earthquake warning, based on peasant observations, has been seen to be effective, and an article ...
310. Stargazers and Gravediggers by Immanuel Velikovsky [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... the scientist and the general reader cause to reconsider prior beliefs about science, objectivity, human nature, and the opinions of experts. ** * Immanuel Velikovsky was born in 1895 in Vitebsk, Russia. He studied natural sciences at the University of Edinburgh; history, law, and medicine (M .D .) in Moscow; biology in Berlin; the working of the brain in Zurich; and psychoanalysis in Vienna. As a young scholar he founded and edited the Scripta Universitatis, the collected works of great thinkers, which pioneered the founding of Hebrew University. Velikovsky was the first to suggest brainwave diagnosis of epilepsy, the existence of Jupiter's radio noises, Venus's high ...
