221. A Comprehensive Theory on Aging, Gigantism and Longevity [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... life forms. Cenozoic-Tertiary time is also interpreted as including the time or times of an icy-watery catastrophe or flood of global or planetary dimension. Cenozoic-Quaternary time (Pleistocene) reveals early post-Flood, post-ice age material, whether from caves, hunting sites, moraines, tar pits or whatever. It is common knowledge that dinosaurs of immense size and often bizarre attire are frequent in the fossil record (Mesozoic strata). What is not well known is that a general gigantism runs throughout the animal kingdom, a gigantism that is intercontinental in geography. Table 2 illustrates the universality and magnitude of gigantism in the paleo-animal kingdom. This record applies to all six major continents; Antarctica is for the ...
222. Bouquets and Brickbats: A Reply to Martin Sieff [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... others compliment, or at least do not contradict, his own. Otherwise, as in my case, he has nothing to offer but "brickbats." So, also, it was with Heinsohn. No more praises. Instead, Sieff accuses him not only of "ignorance" (many times repeated), but of being "bizarre" (also many times repeated), "astonishingly sloppy," "mendacious," "too absurd," of "shooting at straw dogs" and "wild tangents," of having "an obsessive irrational blind spot," and of "undermining his own credibility."80 Worse than that, he accuses him of ...
223. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... winter to summer are proven wrong; and that counter-intuitive details lend credence to a story. Phaethon's fall would deprive regions of sun/heat; the best we can do with self-contradictory sources is to treat any interpretation as highly tentative; and the counter-intuitive' argument is dangerously similar to Clube & Napier's idea (criticised in my review) that bizarre ideas' imply a naturalistic basis' (The Cosmic Winter, p. 78) - which would suggest that the Thousand and One Nights are sober history... c) Ellenberger states that the Sun was identified with Sirius' (to support the idea that proto-Encke might easily have been identified with the planet Venus). This ...
224. Noah's Vessel: 24,000 Deadweight Tons [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... constellations defining them arrived at the points where they correctly relate to Earth's spring equinox? Could orbital precession have reversed periodically so that there was no net change in the fixed stars' positions for over 4000 years? Such informational light might be quite blinding! It might even result in the correction of the "dating" systems that produce such bizarre conclusions as 70 million year old Etruscan sandal prints, fossilized woven cloth in Precambrian granite and 18' tall animals freezing from falling into water that became ice. Such freezing requires a freeze rate of temperatures below -300 degrees Fahrenheit! It takes -40 degrees F to freeze a 4" thick salmon fast enough to prevent deterioration of the " ...
225. A Catastrophic Reading of Western Cosmology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... be replaced by the Kingdom of God, at which time below will become as perfect as above, is even better. Both of these ancient systems acknowledge local turmoil only in the framework of heavenly peace. That is their forest to the Earth's changeable trees, and lo and behold, it is the same for Newton. His Nirvana is bizarrely like Aristotle's, above us now and for ever, a region totally free of change and upheaval in contrast to the chaos of the Earth, a region ironically immortalised in the romantic concept of a return to the stars. It is true that Newton's pacific view of the skies has since been proved wrong, for we now know that ...
... Rustam and Zal, abductions and intrigues, infinite subplots to the tale, enough for a bard to entertain 44 his patrons for weeks and to ensure him a durable supply of haunches of venison. But the intervention of the gods in the tale is not so humanized as in the Iliad, although it shows through repeatedly in complicated symbolism and bizarre fairy tales. The conflict of will and fate is not to the measure of man. What has been traced above is a confusing story of dynastic succession under a shadowy Glory, a Glory without high events, keyed to a Hamlet situation and an unexplained melancholy. The essence is an unsubstantial pageant of ambiguous abstractions, an elusive ballet ...
227. From Ramses III To Darius III. Part I Ch.5 (Peoples of the Sea) [Velikovsky]
... in his stead in my domains which are in Upper and Lower Egypt, has asked me for it. Now in regard to that provision which has been given by the king and by me to Ah-hapi: -Psamshek his son shall be allowed to take up that grant there in Egypt. We are before the disentanglement of one of the most bizarre confusions in Egyptian history, or, if a scholarly work permits the language, the apprehension of the person who played, undeservedly, not just the role of one of the later kings, as in the case just discussed, but who has personified probably one of the greatest of Egyptian kings. The momentous significance of what we have ...
... of the flood in literature with the shared human experience of birth. You remember Otto Rank's conception of the birth trauma, yet another primordial experience, occurring at the beginning of our own lives. It is in schizophrenic illnesses that one encounters mental content which inclines one to consider the possibility of a phylogenetic derivation. Careful examination of these very bizarre delusional ideas, and the violent feelings which accompany them, has led to an awareness that despite the intensely private symbolic nature of schizophrenic language and imagery, the ideas represent an accurate reflection of their experience, and at times, they even represent an effort at communication. But what about the form in which these experiences are embodied and ...
229. The Erratic Descent of Man [Books]
... of the University of Michigan, the very concept of a molecular clock seemed a throwback to the long-discarded notion that evolution was driven exclusively from within organisms, rather than depending to a considerable extent on environmental changes. As Roger Lewin wrote in New Scientist: "The certainty that a molecular clock could not exist was a reaction to a particularly bizarre piece of theoretical nonsense, orthogenesis, that had entranced evolutionary biologists for several decades early in the century. The notion was that evolution was driven internally and inexorably in particular directions and at a steady rate. According to this theory, sabre-toothed tigers were the agents of their own extinction, because, having begun to elongate in dramatic fashion ...
230. The Crescent II [Books]
... horizon," adding that "this hill is incongruously placed in the solar boat." (93) In the second illustration the Aten "rests on the twin-peaked mountain of sunrise. Against all verisimilitude this figure, mountain and all, is being conveyed across the waters of the heavenly ocean in a boat." (94) As bizarre as this sailing mountaintop may appear to conventional mythologists, it is, to us, one of several independent proofs that the mountain sign means simply the revolving Saturnian crescent, here rendered naturalistically in its mythical form as two peaks. When the texts say that the god "sails round about in the Khut ," they mean literally that ...
