353. The Cause Of The Ice Ages. Ch.8 Poles Displaced (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... , there would be a fall in temperature. However, one would have to explain where such extensive and thick clouds of dust in the atmosphere could come from. "Scores of methods of accounting for ice ages have been proposed, and probably no other geological problem has been so earnestly discussed, not only by geologists but by meteorologists and biologists; and yet no theory is generally accepted."3 A true theory of the origin of ice ages, whether resorting to astronomical, geological, or atmospheric causes, must also explain why ice ages did not occur in northeastern Siberia, the coldest place on earth, but did occur in temperate latitudes, and in a much more ...
354. A Working Hypothesis. Ch.9 Axis Shifted (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... lofty highlands of today? These questions still await satisfactory answers."1 Climate changed, and the continental ice cover formed. "At present the cause of excessive ice making on the lands remains a baffling mystery, a major question for the future reader of earth's riddles."2 Species and genera of animals were extinguished. "The biologist is in despair as he surveys the extinction of so many species and genera in the closing Pleistocene [Ice Age]."3 Equally sudden and unexplained changes accompanied the close of each geological period. What caused tropical forests to grow in polar regions? What caused volcanic activity on a great scale in the past and lava flows on ...
... Earth to be highest in the zone where its orbital plane intersected the terrestrial globe, and lower to the south and north of this zone. Besides, Hoerbiger's Cosmological Theory will be found to give a very plausible reason why there is an Inter-Andean Sea of a still higher strandline, and it will be found to suggest solutions for all the biological, palaeontological, climatological, archaeological, and other enigmas, which make the Tiahuanaco problem so puzzling. ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ...
356. Mankind's Delusion. Ch.1 Of Racial Memory (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... experiences. Psychoanalysis as it is practised today ignores Freud's deeper insights. But, loath to read the testimony of the witnesses of celestial and terrestrial order turned to chaos- a terror chilling the very marrow of the bones- psychoanalysis was prudent not to follow Freud and stopped a great step earlier, not recognizing the importance of the role of biological inheritance of acquired characteristics in mental spheres on a collective basis. Yet, many new possibilities would open up, and numerous of the observed expressions of neurosis would be understood, with some knowledge of what happened to humanity in ages past. ...
... Boulanger anticipated Jung and Freud and spelled out the nature of this experience that influenced the behavior of the subsequent generations. Frank E. Manuel maintains that in Boulanger's conception "there is no physiological transmission of the postdiluvian terror, nor a theological incubus of sin, merely a historical tradition embodied in rites, myths, ceremonials. Boulanger required no biological mechanism or race memory plasmically inherited to account for the enduring effects of the trauma of the flood; mere imitation and institutional inheritance was adequate, a theory which allowed also for the relatively easy cure of the disease and thus generated an optimism whose spirit is to be distinguished from the traumatized humanity of Freud." Neither ...
358. "A Degradation Of Science And Of Religion". Ch.2 To Know And Not To Know (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... had deliberately left several clues to the effect that the book was planned as a hoax and that it might lead to world destruction. This review, filled with misrepresentations that only an unreasoned reaction could produce, was followed by a thoroughly misleading reply to my rejoinder in The New Statesman and Nation, February 3, 1951. Haldane, a biologist and philosopher, wished to be known as the embodied conscience of the scientific and philosophical worlds. England, his native land, he believed, was irreparably below all moral standards, and toward the end of his life, irrationally attracted by the esoteric, he left for India to die there. Haldane's fury came out of his own ...

360. The AAAS Is Alerted To Act. File II (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... . The crank is "ignorant of the principles and facts of the field [he] write[s ] about." He "will ignore all facts and deny all theories that stand in his way." To impress the reader with the extent to which a crank forces his theory upon nature, he presented an example. The biological crank has the intrinsically harmless theory, for example, that there are winged elephants. Where? For convenience, let us say that they are in the next room. If we do not see them, then perhaps we have a curious physical fact, that light rays bend around winged elephants, thus making them invisible; or a ...
