71. The Magnetic Tube and the Planetary Orbits [Books] [de Grazia books]
... used by biologists to mutate rapidly growing species such as Drosophila, the common fruit fly. In Solaria Binaria, radiation was abundant precisely when needed to explain periods of great biological change. Figure 16. Braking Radiation Emitted by a Spiraling Electron A charged particle experiencing a force accelerates; it gains or loses energy through the acceleration. When energy ... presence of the field, it eventually dominates. Thus the gases surrounding the discharge tended to flow around the magnetic column. The same radiation as described here is used by biologists to mutate rapidly growing species such as Drosophila, the common fruit fly. In Solaria Binaria, radiation was abundant precisely when needed to explain periods of great biological change ...
72. Psychoceramics [Journals] [Aeon]
... our way of thinking about the world in which we live: Shifts in thinking about cosmology and evolution, and in subsets of scientific disciplines as computers and microelectronics, molecular biology, nucleonics, paleoarcheology, and the like. What is even more interesting is that there have been no major scientific breakthroughs in the physical sciences during this same period ... the rocks represented an evolution of species as the "great ladder of nature," curiously penning his approach to the mystery in an epic poem, Zonomia. The French biologist, Jean Baptiste de Lamarck, was the first to devote an entire book to evolution as the "march of nature" in his Philosophie Zologique (1809), ...

Cardona, "The Problem of the Frozen Mammoths," ... E. Cockburn, op. cit., pp. 55, 66; P. S. Martin & J. E. Guilday, "A Bestiary for Pleistocene Biologists," in P. S. Martin & H. E.

74. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... about the process of evolution (see Workshop 3:4 , pp. 18-19 and 4:2 , p. 24), has added yet another ingredient to a biological stew which savours more and more of catastrophism. Colin Tudge reports Gould's recent Tinbergen lecture at London Zoo, in which Gould coined the word "exaptation" for characters ... useful to an organism but which probably developed, "not through continuing evolutionary pressure (adaptation), but en passant". British biologist from Darwin on, have apparently been the worst culprits in seeking to explain all characters on a basis of selection pressure. (This trend appears to have been faithfully followed by David Attenborough and Richard Leakey ...
75. A Conversation with Barry Fell [Journals] [Horus]
... pre-Columbian American history. He is founder of the Epigraphic Society and editor of its journal, Epigraphic Society Occasional Publications. Thoroughly grounded in the sciences and a specialist in marine biology, Dr. Fell's interests eventually turned toward human involvement with the sea and the wealth of archaeological evidence that, long before Columbus, other seafarers had already visited the ... improbable that the European historian in the 1700's would hit on the right date. Well that impressed me, of course. And, another thing also impressed me as a biologist. It's during my lifetime that the whole theory of radiocarbon dating has been developed - and I followed it very closely with great excitement when it first came out. ...
76. Heretics, Dogmatists and Science's Reception of New Ideas [Journals] [Kronos]
... enlarging the frame of reference to include Lysenkoism and the 1948 meeting of the Lenin Academy of Agricultural Science. There, Lysenko, an out-spoken advocate of his version of Lamarckian biology, i.e ., the inheritence of acquired traits, succeeded in extirpating Mendelian genetics from Soviet biology. Five Mendelian geneticists recanted, admitted their errors and committed ... the ideas in Worlds in Collision to a hypothetical relationship between gestation periods and multiples of pi, as follows: . . . No amount of evidence could convince a modern biologist that gestation periods are equal to integer multiples of . Our conception of the nature of things tells us that such a relationship is absurd. . . . Suppose then ...
77. Scientists, Journalists and Editors as Suppressors (Part II) [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... And he cites Thomas Gold's writing in the British weekly, New Scientist, in 1986, in support of Velikovsky's idea that oil came from space rather than sedimentary deposits of biological origin. According to Gold, "Attempts to find oil fields rich in biological debris have generally failed" and the viewpoint that hydrocarbons could not arise without biology became ... of Immanuel Velikovsky and the supporters and opponents of Carl Sagan, but that it will also be of great interest to astronomers, historians, psychologists, theologians, geologists, biologists and physicists, as well as to the general public. Carl Sagan and Immanuel Velikovsky, by Charles Ginenthal, is a book of solid integrity and quality, and ...
78. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... has the Kuhnian revolution already taken place and is Catastrophism waiting in the wings about to be crowned a worthy successor? A summary of current major changes of thinking in evolutionary biology by Michael J. Benton of the University of Oxford would indicate that this is indeed so. In the "News and Views" section of Nature, under the ... in the physical environment is sufficient on its own". It has been so postulated, Mr Benton, but unavailingly until now. Dare we hope that these enlightened evolutionary biologists will soon prevail?

80. The Knowledge Industry [Books] [de Grazia books]
... perusing an edition of Frederick Engels' Dialectics of Nature, a work which many Soviet scientists find it de rigueur to praise highly somewhere in their books and which contributes to biological science roughly in the same measure as Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf, he had to note that the adulatory introduction to Engels' book was by none other than J. ... hundred book reviews, these reviews are signs of the times that happened to gather electrostatically like fluff around his work. J.B .S . Haldane, a noted biologist who also wrote on Science and Ethics, found V. s Worlds in Collision a degradation of both science and religion, a peculiarly enraging combination, apparently, for ...
