... or cartilaginous spines. The spellings "callabus" (for caballus, the contemporary horse) and "Pelser" (for Benny Peiser, the sports historian and archeologist) may be typographica. But repeated occurrences of "coelosaur" (literally "hollow lizard") for coelurosaur (literally "hollow-tailed lizard"), a small carnivorous bipedal dinosaur of the upper Cretaceous Period, are probably erroneous. Stylistically, the author's prose is refreshingly clear. A composition teacher, however, would wince at the large number of sentence-fragments which he punctuates as full sentences, probably as a result of his journalistic experience writing headlines or catchy titular phrases. On rare occasions, Milton lapses into the ...

Size does not equal weight. If you look at the bones of the largest dinosaurs, they are riddled with cavities to save weight. When I got to see one in the stages of preparation, I was shocked to see how open the structure of sauropod vertebrae are. There is less bone than non-bone space, and the structure looks optimized for weight/strength like an aeroplane part. I suspect the vertebrae were ...

... Velikovskian principles are allowed to operate and receive reasonably serious consideration providing they operate afar and do not impinge on our uniformitarian world!" We thank Mr. J. M. John Peet of Guildford for sending us a page from New Scientist dated 7th June 1979 (p .798) concerning a piece titled "An Iridium clue to the dinosaurs' demise". The subject matter concerned will be considered in the next issue of the REVIEW. \cdrom\pubs\journals\workshop\vol0202\08news.htm ...

194. Gravity and Pterodactyls [Journals] [Aeon]
... , postulating an Earth with a lesser gravity in the primordial past to permit megafauna like Baluchitherium to roam presents something of a paradox. We have found that astronauts lose bone mass and are subject to muscular atrophy under extended micro-gravity conditions. Of course, this presents an extreme case, but extrapolating toward some optimum gravity condition leaves the impression that dinosaurs and their megafauna relatives fared quite well in their environment for several epochs, despite massive extinctions that brought each to a close. We do not yet know if such an optimum gravitational state exists. So, on first principles, a higher gravity would tend to increase bone mass and muscular development, and I'm quite sure that a young ...

... with geomagnetic reversals, though not of the Warlow type (which presumably New Scientist knows of!), and the view expressed is that a geomagnetic reversal can be expected within 1200 years. However: - "Quite what effect a reversal would have is an open question. Some theorists have linked reversals to mass extinctions of creatures such as dinosaurs, but there is no hard evidence of such cataclysms." This statement is a simple untruth It is shocking that a journal purporting to be scientific could utter it. In the context of a continuing Velikovsky affair, it becomes at least understandable, but it implies the knowledge and even the connivance of the editorial staff. What is ...

... that their case for rapid mountain building at this time is sufficiently proven. There are also unjustified statements such as that the vast outpourings of the Deccan Traps in India were late Pleistocene', although these are normally dated at the end of the Cretaceous, 65 Myrs ago, and are more likely to be associated with the death of the dinosaurs. They also rely too much upon a literal interpretation of myths of the Golden Age without any inkling that this cannot be easily separated from a whole gamut of myths about Saturn which they have not considered at all. In fact the whole use of myth in this section to describe what was apparently going on on Earth shows no discrimination ...

... says Nieper: The gravitational acceleration of the Earth would have to change if the surrounding energy field became more dense or if it had more energy. The gravitational acceleration would then drop, because the difference in field absorption would become smaller. At the same time, the geothermal temperature would increase. In fact, at the time of the dinosaurs, the gravity acceleration on Earth would have had to have been 25% -30% of the present day acceleration (and)the geothermal heating must have been greater, the volcanic activity must have been greater (both of which is true) and the surface temperature of the Earth would have had to have been higher, which ...

... change entails vagaries of geological and even astronomical events whose origins are complex, obscure, and, as earthquake watchers know, currently unpredictable." He describes the major evolutionary effects of mass extinctions, without going into their possible environmental causes, and points out that it was evidence of the vast proliferation of mammalian species following the extinction of the dinosaurs which first convinced T. H. Huxley of the reality of evolution. Stanley's arguments, if not at the present time conclusive, are nevertheless quite convincing: the evidence about human evolution, for example, fits well within a punctuational framework. The New Evolutionary Timetable possesses a good index and, together with Gould's Ever Since Darwin [ ...
