311. The Planet Earth, Prologue Ch.2 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... attempts" already made and he did not find himself able to offer a solution. "These ideas have haunted, I may almost say have tormented me during my researches among fossil bones."(2 ) Cuvier's theory of stabilized forms of life and of annihilating catastrophes was supplanted by a theory of evolution in geology (Lyell) and biology (Darwin). The mountains are what is left of plateaus eroded by wind and water in a very slow process. Sedimentary rock is detritus of igneous rock eroded by rain, then carried to sea, and there slowly deposited. Skeletons of birds and of land animals in these rocks are presumed to have belonged to animals that waded ...
312. Tektites, Wildfires and the Extinction of the Dinosaurs [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Newgrosh, who asked in SIS Review VII:A , p.8 , whether the apparent absence of tektites before the last 35 million years ruled out the possibility of earlier extinctions being caused by impacts. Smit wrote in conclusion, "Only a major impact with all its environmental consequences seems capable of explaining all lithological, trace element and biological evidence"[2 ]. Another round of articles by these various authors confirmed their original views[3 ,4 ,5 ]. The Alvarez group concluded in favour of an impact rather than a volcanic cause after a mineralogical study of the C-T boundary clay[6 ], and Guy Leahy and his colleagues from the Department of ...
313. Darkness Over Sinai (Where was Moses when the light went out?) [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... complete orbit of the Moon round Earth), then dividing all these ages by 13.37 (there being 13.37 sidereal months in a sidereal year of 365.26 days representing one orbit of Earth around the Sun), the ages in solar years are more compatible with the biblical standards of three-score years and ten and the biological life-expectancy of our own era - Lamech clocking in at 58 years and Methuselah at a respectable 72 and a half! The Bible being a collection of books of different dates, it is quite conceivable that when they were committed to writing the scribes accepted ages in years at face value - not questioning whether they were lunar or solar ones ...

315. Meteoritic Impacts And Radioactivity [Books]
... generated sub-atomic particles and rays which contaminated the Earth's atmosphere. The half-lives of many of the radio-active substances may have been relatively short, compared with those of the very long-lived uranium, thorium, potassium, rubidium, and C14, but long enough (from several hours to hundreds of days or several years) to have had a far reaching biological effect B. There is no doubt that the atmosphere in and around the explosion crater must have been polluted by an enormous quantity of ionising radiations. We may reasonably assume that the concentration of radiation must have been of the work order of many hundred thousand (if not millions) rontgens, and that this high concentration persisted for a ...

317. Stargazers and Gravediggers by Immanuel Velikovsky [Books]
... 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 ...
318. The Impossible Dinosaurs [Articles]
... appear to get quite to that point. McGowan (Dinosaurs, Spitfires, & Sea Dragons, p. 97) claims that a Toronto Zoo specimen was the largest in North America at 14,300 lbs. One has no difficulty visualizing the slow, lumbering, weight encumbered movements of elephants. Clearly they are operating at the limits of biological size. Even the scaling up of the Rhinoscerous, as the popular Paleontoligist Bob Bakker is fond of doing in defense of sauropod mobility, would run you straight into the scaling formula cited above, independent of leg length proportions. Again, in all cases, we are comparing the absolute maximum effort for a human weight lifter to lift ...

320. Built Before the Flood [Books]
... and intricately interrelated group of problems. Hence the first approach must be general, not special. The whole range of questions must be marshalled in conspectus and a leading line for their solution laid down. Only then the individual special questions can be dealt with by the various branches of science concerned: geography, geophysics, hydrology, geology; biology, oecology, palaeontology,anthropology; archaeology, architecture, technology; mythology, philology, astronomy, etc. Hitherto the Tiahuanaco Problem has been approached from practically one angle only - that of archaeology - and even this only in a very desultory manner. The various findings have served only to deepen the mystery which enshrouds the enigmatic remains ...
