... aftershock following a devastating earthquake. When we examine the geological record of the catastrophic conclusion of the Pleistocene Epoch, we see some indication of the severity of the stresses to which living forms were then subjected. Prior to the Deluge the level of the oceans may have been as much as three miles lower than today; extinct creatures perhaps some dinosaurs still roamed the Earth; few of the mountains we see in our time yet existed in anything like their present form; the atmosphere may have had a different oxygen content; perhaps our planet was not even a satellite of the same star around which it now revolves. Rather than marvel at the number of casualties of that paroxysm, ...

... cata-clysmic floods and worldwide conflagrations, were essentially historical. (76) The planetary collision scenarios he saw behind Earth-involving battles of the gods (theomachies) are still being challenged and can be shown to contain a number of errors. Yet, in substance, his view of cosmic catastrophism not only gained in reputation for geological time (extinction of dinosaurs, etc.), (77) but was also backed for the Bronze Age, i.e . for the time of writing. In 1982, two British astronomers, Victor Clube (University of Oxford) and William Napier (Royal Observatory, Edinburgh), published The Cosmic Serpent: A Catastrophist View of Earth History. ...

283. Cosmic Winter [Articles]
... before 1975. But, in fact, the results have gradually become clearer and clearer to us in the last twenty years. This is just to remind you of a picture you have seen already, I'm sure, of the Tsunguska event, the sort of thing it does. It is a dramatic type of explosion. It doesn't extinguish dinosaurs because it's localized. But it's easy enough to picture an object which is, let's say, two or three hundred meters in size rather than the fifty to one hundred meters which we believe the Tsunguska was, and recognize that it will obliterate a very, very broad area indeed. In fact, its' effects would be quite ...

... proposed by scientists who have recently "discovered" celestial catastrophism only account for a subset of these factors. Also, the recent highly acclaimed paper by Kopper and Papamarinopoulos(17) found a statistically significant correlation between human evolutionary changes and magnetic reversals. With the proposed Earth altering event of 65 million years ago that ended the reign of the dinosaurs, there was associated an immense shower of meteoric material. This associates the event with an asteroid or comet. The associated magnetic reversals which occur in conjunction with rapid evolutionary changes indicate that this was not due to an asteroid colliding with Earth as suggested by Alvarez and others.(18) Although they have claimed that an asteroidal collision ...

285. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... believe that such an event may have happened once in Earth's history. Their biggest concession is their thinking in regard to the conclusion of the Cretaceous epoch. Alvarez et al. have devoted much effort to the elucidation of the real implications of increased iridium content of a few inches of clay closing the Cretaceous and associated with the extinction of the dinosaurs. Whipple believes that the impact by an asteroid or large meteor with one of the oceans of Earth may have summoned the demise of Tyrannosaurus Rex. It is an implicit conclusion that the hundred or more feet of chalk deposited immediately below the Cretaceous boundary clay arose in a standard uniformitarian manner requiring a supposed time-scale of tens of millions of ...

... there against one of these earlier catastrophes having occurred four million years ago? What is there against one of them having occurred 16 million years ago, as Ovenden originally claimed? And earlier still? Did I not also write that "therein might lie the answer to the great extinctions of life at the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary and the annihilation of the dinosaurs"?(94) These recurring Saturnian disruptions would all have been similar, but the important thing to remember is this: Since the Saturnian scenario described above was reconstructed from ancient records, and since these records match so closely what Van Flandern described, should not conventionalists have a second look at theirs? As we have seen, ...

The animal and fish remains that are present in large numbers in some layers of the Geiseltal lignites will be discussed later [in my book] and also the destruction of the dinosaurs in Utah during the late Cretaceous or early Eocene. Other vast collections of animal bones and vegetable debris occur in the Agate Spring Quarry, Nebraska; in the Cumberland Cavern, Maryland; in the Norfolk Forest beds; in the Siwalik Hills, north of Delhi; in Kentucky; in the San Pedro Valley, California; at Kesslerloch ...

... of causes that have been proposed (including meteorite impacts) and he seems to imply that we should keep an open mind when searching for such causes and evaluate new hypotheses on the basis of all available evidence. He states that "clearly we cannot blame a single organic agent for the simultaneous extinction of all the varied and unrelated groups of dinosaurs, the pterosaurs, the marine reptiles, the ammonites, the belemnites, the rudistids and many minor groups besides at the end of the Mesozoic". Ager's discussion of the fragmentary nature of both the sedimentary and the fossil records confirms what has already been commonly accepted by stratigraphers and palaeontologists. We know that many gaps exist in the ...

... are discernable in spite of the masking effect of our planet's varied and complex geology. These craters appear not to have been caused by fast-moving, small meteorites but by large cosmic bodies in slower motion. Some of these "astron" craters have radii in excess of 1,000 miles. The researchers even suggest that the demise of the dinosaurs could have been decided by a relatively small catastrophe of this type, and that mankind could suffer the same fate (46). Another claim of Dr Velikovsky is that the close approaches of other celestial bodies to Earth and Moon were accompanied by the release of colossal amounts of energy through the agency of interplanetary lightning bolts. With this ...

... could not be taken seriously by scientists. Scientists have great confidence, for which there is some justification from past experience, that- eventually- discordant facts will become concordant as knowledge grows, new factors are identified, theories become more general. So they are used to living with a host of unexplained matters- extinction of the mammoths (and dinosaurs, and others), periodic reversals of the earth's magnetic field, the origin and differentiation of languages, the mechanisms responsible for the Ice Ages- all the unexplained things emphasized 260 Beyond Velikovsky by Velikovsky. Those are just "lonely" facts; they have not been correlated or fitted in, so they have little scientific value. ...
