61. Punctuated Darwinism? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... a process, and, as has been indicated above, can be seen as a negative force, not the creative one necessary in such extreme circumstances. New ideas in biology which tie in with the creative cosmos of the physicists, provide a possible alternative answer. The hypothesis of formative causation [7 ] suggests that living organisms are not ... of a species' variation a breeding population must start with at least six individuals taken at random from the wild. However, there is then a time problem. Conservation biologists are taking very seriously the idea that there is little point in returning animals to the wild until the human population has levelled out and learned to preserve what, if ...
62. News from the Internet [Journals] [SIS Review]
... journal Uspekhi Fisicheskikh Nauk (1 ) summing up the results of more than three decades of investigations of anomalous statistical regularities in a wide range of physical, chemical, and biological processes, from radioactive decay to the rates of biochemical reactions. The evidence points unambiguously to the existence of a previously unknown relationship between fluctuations in the rates of radioactive ... the article by Shnoll et al., which is excerpted here: The paper that you have just read is somewhat out of the ordinary. Professor Shnoll is a known biologist, but the paper deals not so much with biology as with pure physics- radioactive decay. Many years of experiments have led to the discovery of several (to ...
... the departments, based upon ideas that were expressed in, or that followed from, my own work. I heard of the work of Dr. Stebbins (Department of Biological Sciences) and of Dr. Parry (Counselling Centre). if the ideas that these men have in their minds can be substantiated, they will produce great revolutions ... one another by the very nature of their disciplines, have suddenly found a common ground. They have started to communicate with one another: physicist to historian, historian to biologist, biologist to geologist, geologist to astronomer, and so on. They have found a common subject, a common theme, they have found a way to realize ...
64. Comets, Meteorites and Earth History [Journals] [SIS Review]
... geological, climatological and calendrical changes right down through prehistoric into early historical times. Gallant, a pioneer of modern catastrophism, and Wickramasinghe, a contemporary scourge of orthodoxy in biology and cosmology, attracted a full house to the Library Association for the Society's major meeting of the year, despite appalling weather. Both talks were very well received and ... the intervention of lunch brought this stimulating discussion to an end. PROFESSOR CHANDRA WICKRAMASINGHE: "Evolution from Space - Interdisciplinary Evidence"The afternoon session was introduced and chaired by biologist Dr Trevor Palmer, and the speaker, Professor Wickramasinghe of University College Cardiff, turned the attention of the meeting to the ultimate interdisciplinary problem - the origin of life ...
65. Perilous Planet Earth: Catastrophes and Catastrophism Through the Ages by Trevor Palmer. [Journals] [SIS Review]
... this area as befits an author with Professor Palmer's academic background. It is aimed at professional academics and students from a variety of disciplines, including palaeontology, geology, evolutionary biology, history, astronomy and social anthropology. It deserves to be a set book on many degree courses. The book is in two parts. Part I: Catastrophism ... course, a sweeping paradigm change. In section B, Palmer begins by describing the development of the Modern Synthesis, Neo-Darwinism. In this era generations of geneticists and other biologists fine-tuned the gradualist message by showing that Mendel's inheritance theory could be used to introduce slight modifications into animals and plants. In 1953 Watson and Crick established the double helix ...
66. The Problem Of The Extinction [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... adequate explanation, or at least to agreement as to what that adequate explanation is."9 The problem has been attacked from every conceivable discipline: paleontology, climatology, biology, paleoecology, agronomy, geology, palynology (the study of pollens), anthropology, taphonomy (the study of bones once deposited in soil) and probably several ... the largest animals that were killed off. What is also unusual, in terms of modern evolutionary theory, is that no new organisms slowly or suddenly evolved, as modern biologists posit from their theories of evolution, to supplant and replace those that became extinct in the new, warmer habitats that were made empty by their passing.6 The ...
67. In Passing: EVOLUTIONARY THEORY [Journals] [SIS Review]
... in the National Gallery, London. (Reproduced by kind permission of The Rothschild Trust Company Ltd.) As more and more detail has been obtained about genetics, molecular biology and the fossil record, nothing has been found which seriously contradicts the essentials of neo-Darwinism, but there are gaps in the evidence, and these gaps are what much ... more confusing by misprints which give the dates of Blyth's papers as 1935 and 1937). Despite statements to the contrary in Evolution from Space, most if not all evolutionary biologists accept that Darwin invented neither the theory of evolution nor the term "natural selection"; what he did do was to develop a detailed and coherent evolutionary theory based ...
... that humankind suffers collectively from amnesia and repetition compulsion. Still more recently, as it has become apparent that civilization is in the process of profoundly and perhaps permanently impairing the biological viability of the entire planet, a new discipline know as "ecopsychology" has undertaken to expose the roots of civilization's omnicidal mania. Paul Shepard's Nature and Madness ( ... warmer periods of a few thousand years. We are in one of those warm periods now. It was during these past 2.5 million years, according to evolutionary biologists, that humankind evolved, our brain increasing in size fourfold. During the last 120,000 years (encompassing the most recent Ice Age) there have been roughly ...
69. Tuning in to Nature, by Philip S. Callahan (Review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... that we cannot, and yet for the most part we obstinately continue to look at life from our own narrow point of view. Perhaps the worst thing that happened to biology was the advance in biochemistry. This led to reductionism and for a long time life and evolution have been thought of only in terms of chemicals and their functions. ... several freer-minded biologists are scrambling out of that particular pond but this insightful book was a much earlier plea for taking a wider view. In relating the story of Tesla, the forgotten genius of electrical research, he points out the iniquities of establishment treatment of unorthodox researchers and the dangers into which scientific organisations have fallen by evolving a form of ...
70. Evolution, Darwinism, Popper, and Fort - Again (Vox Populi) [Journals] [Kronos]
... described by Thomas Kuhn (The Structure of Scientific Revolutions). Darwinism, or the Modern Synthesis of Evolution, having once achieved the position of "current paradigm" in biology, its adherents are now digging in their heels - as any totalitarian system will - against a rising tide of revolution. As Macbeth writes (KRONOS VII:4 ... the one(s ) that did this outgrowing, and, also, explain how they reached that conclusion? Did they forget, as most (if not all) biologists and paleontologists forget, that the "size series" of fossil "horses", put on display in 1905 in the American Museum of Natural History (N . ...
