21. Anomalous Occurrence of Crocodilia in Eocene Polar Forests [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Paleogene Paleocene 66.4 Mesozoic Cretaceous Late Cret. Maastrichtian 74.5 Mesozoic Cretaceous Late Cret. Campanian 84.0 1.2 Arctic Dinosauria Some very large animals lived in these polar forests. West of Deadhorse, on Prudhoe Bay in northern Alaska (70 degrees NL), paleontologists found the bones of at least 3 species of dinosaurs. Magnetic measurements of the rocks revealed that the paleolatitude was about the same (70 degrees NL) as today's latitude when the dinosaurs became extinct [8 ]. Scientists concluded that the dinosaurs thrived owing to a semitropical or temperate ecosystem, made possible because the Earth's climate then was more equable or uniform. Why did latitude matter so ...
22. On the Disproportion between Geological Time and Historical Time Part One - Of Apes and Men [Journals] [SIS Review]
... : If the footprints were not known to be so old, we would readily conclude that they were made by a member of our genus, Homo. '  The evidence says one thing, radiometric dating another, and in obeisance to the theory of evolution, the evidence is rejected. Alleged human footprints have been found alongside dinosaur prints in the Cretaceous limestone bed of the Paluxy River, Texas. Often exposed as a result of flooding and erosion, they are quite plentiful, and have been known to local inhabitants for a long time. The best preserved show the impressions of individual toes. Some are uncommonly large. In two cases, human and dinosaur prints ...
23. Nemesis for Evolutionary Gradualism? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... brachiopods and bivalves were affected by sudden truncations at or very near this precise point [17-19]. In non-marine rocks, high iridium levels at the C-T boundary have been found exactly coincident with pollen extinctions [10, 20, 21] and approximately coincident with the extinction of the dominant land animals of the previous hundred million years, the dinosaurs [10, 22, 23]. No land animal weighing more than 25 kg survived, and many of those who died were considerably smaller . It is true that crocodiles and turtles survived, but these are aquatic and can hibernate, which might have been a factor in their survival. Even so, one whole ...
24. The Reality of Extinctions [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon IV:4 (Apr 1996) Home | Issue Contents The Reality of Extinctions Peter Michael James Extinction of the dinosaurs has always been a fitting topic for popular science, particularly because of the alleged link with meteorite impacts- which we shall return to later. In contrast, other extinctions have never caught the public imagination in quite the same way. Yet there have been equally dramatic events, some close to our own times. To name a few of the better known ones: A mere ten or eleven thousand years ago, something like 70% of the large animals of North America were wiped out. In South America, the percentage was even higher ...
25. More Evidence Points to Impact As Dinosaur Killer [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1998:1 (June 1998) Home | Issue Contents More Evidence Points to Impact As Dinosaur Killer 13 March 1998 From: NASANews@hq.nasa.gov March 12, 1998 Douglas Isbell, Headquarters, Washington, DC (Phone: 202/358-1547). Diane Ainsworth, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA (Phone: 818/354-5011) Two new impact crater sites in Belize and Mexico add further evidence to the hypothesis that an asteroid or comet collided with Earth about 65 million years ago, subsequently killing off the dinosaurs and many other species on the planet. Researchers Adriana Ocampo of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), ...
26. Discussion [Journals] [Aeon]
... saw none. This will prove to be either his memorial or his downfall. And even if he should finally be proven wrong regarding the late catastrophes (which I doubt, despite his choice of flawed evidence), we will all owe the good doctor a tremendous debt of gratitude for pointing the way in the first place. On Flying Dinosaurs Speaker: Ted Holden In past ages, not only 300+ lb. flying creatures (Texas Pterosaurs), but also 160- 200 lb. modern birds (teratorns) flew. Nothing much larger than 30 lbs. or so flies anymore, and those creatures, albatrosses and a few of the largest condors and eagles, are ...
27. Home of Ubu Projex [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... soundtrack for the trailer credits on a one-off half hour Rowan Atkinson comedy program.. Says Thomas: "If all disciplines relate to all other disciplines then everything can serve as a metaphor for the human experience. I've written several songs using a science or Fortean metaphor and I've long held a grudge against mainstream science for its treatment of the dinosaur. Hence the Velikovsky 2-Step. If you're going to hold grudges choose big ones that span thousands of years." Blame The Messenger, 1987 The Velikovsky 2-Step.

... is postulated as a cause of the ice Ages. One variation of this theory is that of a "dusty encounter" during the Solar System's passage through our galaxy. A further refinement of this theory is the authors' "supernova" theory. McCrea et al have published a number of papers in recent years attributing the demise of the dinosaurs to an eruption of a supernova: in this paper we find them giving I. Shklovsky credit for his suggestion some 20 years ago that the extinction of the dinosaurs may have been caused by a nearby supernova. Comets are discussed as "close encounters of the third kind", where Lambert and Ralph Glaber get a mention. The ...

... the solar system that the results of the space programme proved accurate. At the time of publication, the very concept that any kind of global cataclysm could have occurred within the dominant evolutionary world picture was beyond tolerance. However since then, the seeds planted by Velikovsky have borne unexpected fruit. Today, for example, the theory that the dinosaurs were wiped out by a supernova is freely debated, and surmises that epidemic disease originates from outer space are discussed by reputable experts. Velikovsky was a psychoanalyst by profession, and his contributions to the field were highly regarded by Freud and Bleuler. Until 1939 he practised in Haifa. In Mankind in Amnesia, published posthumously, he examines ...

... of restoration on French buildings in the 19th century. The trouble was that he was so enamoured of the Gothic style that his restorations were largely reinventions from his own imagination. How many other historical restorations are fake? In the world of palaeontology a fossil first heralded in the National Geographic, Nov. 99, as a missing link between dinosaurs and birds, has been revealed as a fake with the tail of one fossil specimen from the famous Chinese deposits having been glued to the body of another, probably by the farmer who found them, as long tails are known to fetch better prices. An investigation by the Geographic revealed a tale of misguided secrecy and misplaced confidence, ...
