61. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... an illustration of the Oedipus complex. But the fact remains that Velikovsky has presented a case to be answered." With this concluding sentence Wilson just rescues objectivity from the brink of oblivion. He then proceeds to elaborate on several pieces of evidence from Earth in Upheaval which clearly impressed him as evidence for geological catastrophe: the dying of the dinosaurs, the riddle of the frozen mammoths. Velikovsky is also given the credit for "genuine scientific inspiration" regarding evolution by sudden huge leaps. Ages in Chaos is not so generously treated however, for "most ordinary readers must have found this work confusing and boring". This is a sign of the reviewer's own prejudice-and more is ...

63. Radiocarbon Dating The Extinction [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... that the extinction was extremely swift, occurring in days to weeks and, at most, centuries for a few survivors. On the other hand, uniformitarians may strenuously oppose this because the effect is too rapid and radiocarbon does not really support such a sharp, overnight destruction. In this respect, recent statistical research derived from analysis of the dinosaur extinction is quite applicable to that of the Pleistocene. The question is that if... ". .. the dinosaurs were killed off by... [a ] comet's collision with Earth, shouldn't their skeletons occur right up to this boundary and then disappear?... Other scientists, however, examined this premise ...
64. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... more recent flights of fancy around the unreal' world of physics are the following: - the 1998 Nobel physics prize given for the discovery of weird quasiparticles', three strange events in a particle accelerator being explained by supersymmetric particles from a hidden world popping into existence' and a belief in a fifth dimension' (perhaps Petersen's magnified Fortean dinosaurs aren't so incredible after all - see C&CR 1999:1 , p. 55). The unreal' world of astrophysics, in hot competition, has come up with tachyons, particles with imaginary mass which travel faster than light and backwards through time (necessary apparently to explain what goes on in black holes!), ...
65. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... eastern Antarctica. Dated at about 4 million years BP, the remains of penguins, whales, fish and dolphins indicate that the water was at least 10 degrees warmer at that time. Researchers are now claiming that, far from having been dominated by a static ice sheet for nearly 40 million years, Antarctica has experienced dramatically fluctuating conditions. Dinosaurs leave their mark source: Scientific American September 1989, p. 133 Studies of dinosaur footprints reveal that carnivores were agile, springing, sprinting hunters, but most dinosaur fossil prints show only a walking gait, rarely a running one. Curiosities include many sites in which the dinosaur trampling was dense enough to disturb the sedimentary layers themselves. ...
66. Discussion [Journals] [Aeon]
... Again, I commend Mr. Field for an excellent article but lament his effort to throw sufficient bone material to the scientific community to gain acceptance into their circle of faith. Uniformitarianism cannot be married to catastrophism any more than my wife can be "a little bit pregnant". The Sauropod Dilemma SPEAKER: Ted Holden The study of large dinosaurs involves a terrible dilemma which modern scientists have either forgotten or are conveniently choosing to ignore. Scientists of the last century, working from simple calculations, believed that even the brontosaurs and the sauropods known in their day, far smaller and less effected by the square-cube problem than the ultrasaur and breviparipus which we now know, lived in water ...

... source: New Scientist 13/8 /81, p. 406, 10/9 /81, p. 645 The claims of Leo J. Hickey of the Smithsonian Institute (Nature 6/8 /81, pp.529-31) that floral changes at the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary indicate gradual rather than catastrophic change for the death of the dinosaurs which came in for rough handling in our last "Monitor" (Workshop 4:2 , p. 23), were afforded considerably gentler treatment from the New Scientist. Continuing to man the uniformitarian ramparts the following week, New Scientist printed a letter from L. B. Halstead citing the work of J. D. Archibald ...
68. Geological Genesis [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the upper limit of size. Pangaea's forests contained giant lycopods, horsetails and pteridophytes, trees over 100m in height. Today the survivors of these primitive groups are mostly small plants; the tallest fern is only 20m high, and height is only achieved by the conifers and flowering plant trees with specially strengthened trunks and good root systems. The dinosaurs produced the largest terrestrial animals the world has ever known. Some weighed more than 80 tonnes, as much as 20 large elephants, but old views that they were slow, clumsy animals have been superseded by evidence that they were fast, active and probably warm-blooded. The weight which a column can support varies as the cube of its ...
69. Discussion Comments From the Floor [Journals] [Aeon]
... idea that the Earth tilted on its axis about 40 million years ago. Contrast the Russian reaction to that of the Canadians who found semi-tropical Eocene remains of roughly the same age on Axel Heiberg Island: paleobotanist Dr. Basinger would rather contemplate a plant/animal enosystem that has no uniformitarian counterpart on today's earth. We now can also place dinosaurs cavorting in the far north. Dinosaur bones have been found by Canadian researchers working on Bylot Island, off the north coast of Baffin Island.(10) Joshua Enookolook of Pond Inlet on Baffin Island, working with a team of scientists from Newfoundland's Memorial University, found the toe bone of a duck-billed dinosaur known as a hadrosaur in ...

... , ancient echinoids, many brachiopods (90% of the families including all productids and nearly all spiriferids), and among foraminifera the fusilinas and schwagerinas. At the same time, at the beginning of the Mesozoic, a rapid renewal of the fauna took place. Mammals appear for the first time, small in size; reptiles of the dinosaur group and the first sea reptiles came into existence. The composition of ammonoids, pelecypods, corals (hexacorals are registered), brachiopods and echinoderms (regular echinoderms are evolvina) was subject to important changes. At the end of the Triassic about 80% of the known families ot reptiles became extinct and at the beginning of the Jurassic ...
