It was mentioned that at conferences such as this, there is a lot of information to digest, and people tend to end up seeing the trees, but not the forest. An overview would go somewhere towards helping us out, and this ...
82. Quantalism: The Big Picture [Journals] [Aeon]
... , none of these disruptions have occurred since the appearance of human beings. Caenocatastrophism is the theory that global disruptions have occurred within the memory of mankind. Palaeocatastrophism, though long out of favor, has made an undeniable come-back in recent years as a consequence of the Alvarez theory that a late Cretaceous asteroid strike brought about the extinction of the dinosaurs and related fauna. [4 ] Caenocatastrophism, however, has yet to regain the acceptability that it enjoyed in the 18th century. To the temporal distinction between palaeocatastrophism and caenocatastrophism, I would like to add an etiological distinction between endocatastrophism and exocatastrophism. Endocatastrophism is the theory, set forth by Brendan Stannard, [5 ] that global ...

... in minerals, including gold. Bits of another asteroid which fell in S. Africa 144 Myrs ago have been discovered intact in its crater. New data from fossil plants from the end of the Cretaceous, 65 Myrs ago, indicate a climate change so rapid that it must be linked to the Mexican impact thought to have seen off the dinosaurs, scotching the belief that they died off slowly from some other cause. Were there multiple impacts? Another much smaller crater has been found in the North Sea. It produced a pattern of concentric rings unknown from any other crater on Earth but similar to two craters found on Europa, one of Jupiter's moons. Even closer in time ...
84. Fossil Deposits [Books] [de Grazia books]
... life forms in the high mountains, in the atmospheric bands, deep, below the land surface, and in the deserts. The inhospitability of these environments is only relative to dubious premises. Conventional long-time uniformitarian evolution and adaptation would have permitted all niches to become life-niches. Recent catastrophes provide of extinct niches such as would support a 50-foot winged dinosaur. If the oceanic salt seas carry few analogous niches for today's species, the reason may be limits imposed by the recency of drastic change, rather than limitations of nature. Rocks dredged from the bevelled tops of a number of seamounts carry imbedded fossils of current species that give 8 to 12,000 years readings on C14 dating ( ...

88. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... is now so little genetic variation between individual cheetahs that they have problems breeding: transplant studies have shown that unrelated individual cheetahs behave as if they were identical twins, so alike is their genetic make-up. Scientists conclude that very, very few individuals survived the population crash 10,000 years ago: one wonders if the recent evidence for some dinosaurs lingering on into the Tertiary Period is not a similar phenomenon. Likewise, one has to question the fossil record of an extinction' horizon - is it a complete or a near-extinction, like that of the cheetah? Eocene climate puzzle source: National Geographic June 1988, p. 757 On Ellesmere Island, 500 miles from the North ...

... was nearly finished .. . and he quoted Velikovsky at the post-conference discussion. Will this seminar, by introducing him to Velikovsky and the "Three Musketeers of the Saturn Theory" lead to another "conversion" (and further loss of popularity) for him? Dunno. We'll have to wait and see. Ted Holden's familiar "impossible dinosaurs" is as still a crucial point in the discussion of Earth's ancient history. He's added a few details that I wasn't aware of. First, an estimate of the scale of gravity attenuation necessary for the dinosaurs to have survived: gravity must have been weaker by 2.8 times today's gravity. Second, he mentioned other difficulties ...
