... and Cascadian Revolutions, each marked by profound unconformities in the rocks. Naturally a quantavolutionist will wonder why these never evolved into a new catastrophist geology. First, there was the obstacle of ideology, which a social psychologist can appreciate more than a natural scientist: the social atmosphere of the times, the breakaway from religion, the need of biology to pursue prolonged development periods, and the empirical fascination of studying the processes going on before one's very eyes - these acted to subdue diastrophism and revolutionism. Long periods of slow changes were supplied until the revolutions themselves appeared as continual skirmishes of the elemental forces. The search for internal forces capable of sculpting the Earth's surface went so far ...

... potential behavior of nature. As it is with the skies and earth, so it is with life. The recent fixation of species, based ultimately upon an operational definition involving interreproducibility, gives a truth that must always have been real: gradual changes occur; species can develop in isolation, by occasional mutation. But all the time that biology can beg, borrow, or steal is not nearly enough to present us with the fantastically organized and behaving conglomeration of animals and plants of 1973. The validity of received evolutionary theory must become minor, while the heavier reality of catastrophic change and origin of species by potentiation comes forward. It was inevitable that Deg should end up in ...

... his calculations, and mentioned the forces of electricity and magnetism whose effects were then unnoticeable. The gravitational balance of the solar system, he proved, however, was near perfect, an empirical demonstration that became a shibboleth to astronomy and thence to progressive mankind. The present trend to accommodate ancient cometary and meteoroid encounters in the earth sciences and biology cannot but bring about a revolution in thought. A large body impacting on Earth is the most versatile mechanism of quantavolution: so everyone will admit. Its effects begin upon approach, increase upon passage through the atmosphere, reach a climax in its explosion, and continue to spread from the point of impact until the whole world and all ...

484. The New Science of Immanuel Velikovsky [Journals] [Kronos]
... organism would be inundated with more stimuli than it could manage. A person must be able to respond to the most pressing stimuli that impinge upon him in the interests of survival. Ornstein puts it well: Personal consciousness is outward-oriented, involving action for the most part. It seems to have been evolved for the primary purpose of ensuring individual biological survival, for which active manipulation of discrete objects, sensitivity to forces which may pose a threat, separation of oneself from others are very useful. We first select the sensory modalities of personal consciousness from the mass of information reaching us. This is done by a multilevel process of filtration, for the most part sorting out survival-related stimuli ...

... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2005 (Sep 2005) Home | Issue Contents Catastrophes and the History of Life on Earth Trevor Palmer Historical Perspective Throughout the first half of the twentieth century, the gradualistic paradigm, championed in the previous century by Charles Lyell and Charles Darwin, had seemed beyond challenge. As envisaged by Darwin, biological evolution proceeded in a slow and stately fashion, through the mechanism of natural selection. As he himself put it, It may be said that natural selection is daily and hourly scrutinising, throughout the world, every variation, even the slightest; rejecting that which is bad, preserving and adding up all that is good; silently and ...

486. The Rise of Blood Sacrifice [Journals] [Aeon]
... throughout history? Obviously, this variety of a psychoanalytic approach overargued its case: "Like Girard, Burkert postulates that the sacred is violence transcended and that sacrifice is a violent act making this transcendence possible. However, while Girard explains violence with a murky metaphysics of desire, Burkert founds it in genetic platitudes. According to him, the biological program acquired by the human species at the hunting stage involved the development of a strong intraspecific violence that originally found its outlet in the violence exerted on game. Sacrifice is thus a ritualized' equivalent of hunting." (9 ) Mesopotamian seal impression depicting the slaying of the Bull of Heaven by Enkidu. Ishtar, at left, ...

487. Catastrophism and Anthropology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... has quickened its pace over the course of this century, ceremonies which re-enacted or commemorated natural catastrophes have been paid relatively little attention [5 ]. In the light of new astronomical discoveries and the emergence of scientific neo-catastrophism, it is necessary to re-evaluate the historicity and the possible effects of the ancient flood catastrophes. Since astronomy, geology and biology have finally accepted the catastrophic history of planet Earth and its inhabitants, it is time for anthropologists to recognise the findings of natural science and to adopt them in their research. Collective reactions to natural catastrophes Natural catastrophes do not necessarily lead to collective responses in form of catastrophe games or rituals. In many cases, the scope of the ...

... moon.... Ravitz suggests that, as the moon modifies earth's magnetic field, these changes precipitate crises in people whose mental balance is already rather precarious. "Whatever else we may be, we are all electric machines.". . . The moon obviously affects man in many ways.(42) So says a pioneering biologist and anthropologist. Now, if a relatively small charged body like the Moon can disturb human behaviour, imagine the lunatic frenzies able to be caused by Mars and Venus, which have much greater masses. When I speak of planetary lunacy, it should be understood that I do not refer to fear and desperation at impending disaster seen in ...

... or of wholesale changes in the celestial order. When the popular astronomer Carl Sagan presented his impressive exposition on the nature of things, called Cosmos, he didn't ask if we may have misunderstood our past. Rather, Sagan's expressed view- the official view of science for many years- fits comfortably within the textbooks on astronomy, geology, biology, anthropology, and ancient history. When we launched the U.S . Space program in the late 50's, then devoted billions of dollars to exploring neighboring planets, no one thought to ask if the planets might have followed different courses in earlier times, whether disturbances of the planetary system might have left their tell-tale marks on these ...
