51. Electric Stars in a Gravity-Less Electrified Cosmos [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of years, if not for thousands of millions of years, to allow the Earth to attain its present form after a long, slow metamorphosis of its original surface. Biological evolution required an equally long time to allow living things to be generated by chance from common chemical precursors, and then for life forms to emerge from the sea-bottom ooze ... fly off as birds and others to crawl out on to the emerging land to become reptiles, and eventually for man to result. Thus it was the geologists and the biologists who told the astronomers that the Sun had to be very old. Old was fine, because gravitation is a very weak force which can only accomplish things over a ...
52. Shattering The Myths Of Darwinism by Richard Milton (Book review) [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... a decades-long member of The Geologists' Association in Great Britain. Like Macbeth, he is a non-biologist who nonetheless brings rigorous professional standards of argumentation to his critique of regnant biological theory. Milton's primary target is conventional geochronology, or earth-dating, of the type known as uniformitarian (or uniformist, for short). Since the discovery of radioactivity ... of natural selection but incompatible with it. For evolution increases the diversity of species, while selection-by definition-decreases it. Milton deals next with homology, a phenomenon held by many biologists to constitute ipso facto evidence of Darwinian evolution. Homology is the anatomical correspondence of such organs as human arms, bats' wings, and dolphins' flippers, all ...
53. Resurrecting Genesis: Displacing the Failed Theory of Naturalistic Evolution, by John R. Hadd (Book Review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... comprises a special' and a general' theory (microevolution and macroevolution); and: Validation of Darwin's special theory has been one of the major achievements of 20th century biology'. It adds: Not just evolutionists but all informed (i .e . progressive)creationists - fully support that judgment. ' It then asks: Assuming ... .. . [but he] never devoted serious effort to developing his initial , unorthodox ideas. ' He did indeed propose such a theory, but not being a biologist, and in the light of his many other researches, it is not surprising that he had no time to develop it further. More surprising is that although, ...
54. Focus [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... of exerting a stranglehold over thought every bit as powerful as the stranglehold of theology that Darwin helped to break." It went on to say: "The argy-bargy within biology about aspects of natural selection and evolution is an entirely healthy manifestation of a robust science striving to achieve a deeper understanding of the world around us." This latter ... " (sic). His statement that: "Darwin's theory is now supported by all the available relevant evidence, and its truth is not doubted by any serious modern biologist." is patently untrue and the New Scientist were open-minded enough to print a letter by Marc Catley (13.5 .82, p. 450) pointing ...
55. The Advancement of Science [Books] [de Grazia books]
... using the term "quantavolution." Not only the increasing number of cosmic heretics, but also restless and probing scientists of the several large fields of geology, astronomy, biology, and the historical sciences had been publishing new materials in which global disasters figured, sometimes mentioning possible exoterrestrial causes, at other times remarking on the shortening of time ... the dying out of the old, but also the more or less sudden emergence of new phyla." Later, Chicago's Field Museum of Natural History hosted a conclave of biologists called by Eldredge, an officer of the Museum, and Gould. Well-reported in Science, it did not precipitate an organized movements, even in the single field of ...
56. Lamarckism: Still Alive and Thriving [Journals] [Aeon]
... reviews from the likes of Nobel laureate Howard Temin, Karl Popper, and Arthur Koestler. Orthodox science, however, regarded Steele's hypothesis as an ill-advised throwback to a long-discredited biology. Steele's hypothesis, briefly, is as follows: During the course of an organism's life, mutations are constantly arising in its somatic cells, some of which ultimately ... became involved. On that basis I went molecular. Without going into all the details, I got involved with various colleagues in Australia, particularly Gerry Both, a molecular biologist, and that attracted Harry Rothenfluh in the late 80s to the somatic mutation program. All of the current work can be traced to this young guy (Harry) ...
57. Homo Schizo Meets God [Books] [de Grazia books]
... was, of course, the question. The tape spun; Deg picked up his notes and spoke at the machine: Charles Darwin was an apt hero for nineteenth century biology and the public and scientific mentalities of the nineteenth century. He came from an expanding empire, did his "field work" young; he lived for many years ... shoulders of pygmies, ' Or better, We are monkeys, swinging carelessly along a dizzying network of vines mysteriously placed and oriented. ' Sometime in 1970, Deg met biologist Dr. Karl Schildkraut of the Albert Einstein Medical School through Dr. Annette Tobia. He was interested in Deg's University scheme and they talked a couple of times about ...
58. The Domination of Astronomy Over Other Disciplines ... [Journals] [Kronos]
... are made of a nobler substance than are the humble objects on Earth, and that the science that studies the heavens is therefore a nobler science than the mundane sciences of biology, geology, chemistry, physics, history, and psychology. Thus we have the view that astronomy is the queen of the sciences'. This view that astronomy ... there is a passivity or a willingness to be ruled and to be led on the part of the subjects. And that is the case here. The geologists, the biologists, and especially the historians have passively accepted the thesis that the astronomers can tell them what has been going on on this Earth, and they have then sketched in ...
59. Reviews [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... . At one time he seemed set for a glittering career along conventional lines: he was a Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge and Director of Studies in biochemistry and cell biology, as well as being a Rosenheim Research Fellow of the Royal Society. However, he left Cambridge to move to India in 1974, investigating the physiology of tropical ... with changing circumstances. An extraterrestrial impact may well have occurred at this time, but too late to have had any significant effect on events already taking place. Another evolutionary biologist, David Raup, vigorously disagrees with this conclusion. The two are very different types of palaeontologist: Bakker spends months every year in the field, searching for fossils ...
60. On the Disproportion between Geological Time and Historical Time Part One - Of Apes and Men [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Neanderthals, contemporaries of Homo sapiens who until recently were believed to have flourished from 120,000 to 35,000 BC [9 ]. Not only is there no biological evolution towards any later type of man during this time, there is also no significant development in tool-making: for 85,000 years these robust' human beings with ... 280. 30. C. Singer: A History of Biology (New York, 1931), p. 487. Although the recapitulation theory is totally discredited among informed biologists, in popular literature vestiges of it still subsist. 31.
