1. Darwin. Ch.2 To Know And Not To Know (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... From "Mankind in Amnesia" © 1982 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Darwin The extent to which the fear of recognition that we travel on an accident-prone vessel governs the thinking of modern science can be exemplified by a few instances. Charles Darwin, as a young naturalist, visited South America; it was in fact the scene of his by-far-longest stay in the course of the circumterrestrial voyage on the ship Beagle. He wrote in his Journal of his voyage (I have also quoted the passages in Earth in Upheaval): "It is impossible to reflect on the changed state of the American continent without the deepest astonishment. Formerly it must have swarmed with ...
2. Towards a New Evolutionary Synthesis [Books]
... by Trevor Palmer CD Home | Contents CD-Rom Home Preface Chapter 1 The Context of Evolution: the Earth and its Surroundings Chapter 2 The Establishment of Gradualism Chapter 3 Challenges to Evolutionary Gradualism Chapter 4 Nemesis for Evolutionary Gradualism? Chapter 5 The Erratic Descent of Man Chapter 6 Towards a New Evolutionary Synthesis Chapter 6 Towards a New Evolutionary Synthesis Trevor Palmer Darwinism challenged and defended We have now reached the point where some analysis of the current state of evolutionary biology must be attempted. In chapters 4 and 5 we looked in detail at whether fossil and other evidence from the past decade has strengthened the view prevalent up to that time that evolution proceeds in a gradual, progressive fashion; instead, ...
3. The Geological Record And Changing Forms Of Life. Ch.15 Cataclysmic Evolution (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... From "Earth in Upheaval" © 1955 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Geological Record And Changing Forms Of Life His thesis of the origin of species by natural selection Darwin supported by reference to (1 ) variations in domestic animals, especially when the breeder deliberately develops a certain desirable feature; (2 ) the anatomical similarity of many related species; and (3 ) the geological record. However, though breeders have created new races or variations, they have created no new animal species. In the anatomy of living creatures "the distinctness of the specific forms, and their not being blended together by innumerable transitional links, is a very obvious difficulty ...
4. Phillip E. Johnson, "Darwin on Trial" [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon III:3 (Oct 1993) Home | Issue Contents BOOK REVIEW: Phillip E. Johnson, Darwin on Trial (Regnery Gateway: Washington, D.C .) 1991. Reviewed by Frederic B. Jueneman (c ) 1993 Frederic B. Jueneman Here is another tightly written volume on what appears to be a continuing contemporary series of books indulging in the well-deserved bashing of Darwinian "theology" in its various guises. But, not since Norman Macbeth's Darwin Retried (1971) have we been exposed to the finely structured legal views of the verbal arguments surrounding what Johnson terms "fully naturalistic evolution, involving chance mechanisms guided by natural selection." ...
5. Towards a new Evolutionary Synthesis [Journals] [SIS Review]
... is the author of Understanding Enzymes (1981) and over 50 research papers and review articles. It is strange how scientists often choose to present a different image to the outside world from that presented to fellow scientists. Take, for instance, the renowned evolutionary geneticist, Ledyard Stebbins of the University of California, Davis. His book, Darwin to DNA, Molecules to Humanity [1 ] is aimed at the non-specialist. It is well-written and full of good things, the distilled wisdom of 45 years thinking about and teaching evolution, but it is bland. It seeks to impress the layman by revealing how much we know about the subject. To some extent the book shows ...
6. On Velikovsky And Darwin [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. VII No. 4 (Summer 1982) "Evolution, Extinction, and Catastrophism" Home | Issue Contents On Velikovsky And Darwin Lynn E. Rose The so-called "Darwinian Revolution" stands in sharp contrast to, and was of an entirely different character from, the Brunian Revolution of the sixteenth century. It is well known how Darwin sailed with the Beagle and patiently collected facts from the Galapagos Islands and elsewhere around the world. Many people take it for granted that these actual observations are the basis for his theory of gradual evolution by natural selection. Darwin did make many observations, but his theory was chosen in defiance of observational data, not ...
7. Viva Lamarck: Renewed Discussion on the Inheritance of Acquired Characteristics [Journals] [Aeon]
... fair assessment of this pioneer's rightful place in biological thought. Until recently the history of Lamarckism has been written by participants in the debate; i.e ., by those who generally had an axe to grind. Mayr concedes this point, offering at the same time a parting shot at Lamarck: "As long as the battle between Darwinism and Lamarckism was raging, it was quite impossible to undertake an unbiased evaluation of Lamarck. For this we are now ready, after it has been demonstrated conclusively that the various causal explanations of evolution, usually designated as Lamarckism, are not valid."(4 ) In the past several decades scholars have begun to reassess Lamarck's contribution ...
8. The New Orthodoxy's Respect for Fact [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... 5 No 4 (1983) Home | Issue Contents The New Orthodoxy's Respect for Fact Jim F. Clarke "Many readers may be disturbed by my argument for the primacy of theory. Does it not lead to dogmatism and disrespect for fact? It can, of course, but it need not." Stephen Jay Gould, EVER SINCE DARWIN, Essay 20 "Velikovsky's unorthodox method is to begin with a working hypothesis and then attempt to find some physical explanation." S. J. Gould, paraphrased from EVER SINCE DARWIN, Essay 19 In his NEW SCIENTIST article on the recent American "monkey trial',(1 ) Michael Ruse criticises "creation science" and the ...
9. The Mechanism Of Evolution. Ch.15 Cataclysmic Evolution (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... species that cannot compete with others for the limited resources of livelihood. The winners in this struggle are those individuals that because of some characteristic-or favourable variation-have an edge over other competitors. "Under these circumstances favourable variations would tend to be preserved, and unfavourable ones destroyed. The result of this would be the formation of new species" (Darwin). As shown on previous pages, the annihilation of many individuals and of entire species in the animal kingdom took place, not only under circumstances of competition, but under catastrophic conditions as well. Entire species with no sign of degeneration suddenly came to their end in paroxysms of nature. Yet extinction of a species through starvation or ...

... world of science. Science is, I fear, no purer than any other region of human activity though it should be." L. Huxley Life and Letters of Thomas Henry Huxley (London, 1900) p. 97. "Though he means to be honorable, he is so bigoted that he cannot act fairly." Charles Darwin Cited by Gertrude Himmelfarb Darwin and the Darwinian Revolution (1968), p. 360. Three years after the AAAS symposium on Velikovsky, Stephen Jay Gould, Professor of Geology and science historian at Harvard University, took aim at Velikovsky with an essay, "Velikovsky in Collision." (1 ) In this critical analysis, Gould ...
