101. ALL Honorable Men [Books]
... one of the leading contributors at The Skeptical Inquirer. What Gardner and his compatriots of CSICOP suffer from is an "audacious faith" in their infallibility of knowing true science from pseudoscience. As Gardner states, ". . . we can distinguish between the scientific value of Einstein's work and the contributions of a Velikovsky. We can grant that Einstein may be wrong, and there is a faint (very faint) possibility that Velikovsky may be right, but the extremes of the continuum are so great that we are justified in labeling one a scientist and the other a pseudo-scientist." (9 ) Notice how casually Gardner uses the authoritative "we" as in "we know ...
102. The Advancement of Science [Books] [de Grazia books]
... was speaking about politics but the generalization might be enlarged. Probably all who have had anything to do with creating a new science, or trying to do so, would agree with him. Included, even, would be those who could recognize tangible victories in their lifetimes- Galileo, Newton, Hume, Darwin, Pasteur, Freud, Einstein, Planck, and Heisenberg. The development of science, that is, sustains a branch of sociology: of historical psycho-politico-anthropo-sociology. When this is applied to science, as the science of science, a partial truth such as V. s concept of collective fear being inherited from the trauma of ancient catastrophes takes its place as a modest ...

CD-Rom Home Introduction The Jewish Science of Immanuel Velikovsky Russian Exodus Palestine at Last Stekel Introgenesis Before Worlds Collide Left Wing McCarthyism Opinion Divided Einstein and Carbon-14 The Late 1950s The Conversion of de Grazia Five Years Countdown to Confrontation Velikovsky's Challenge Bibliography Immanuel Velikovsky's Jewish Science Introgenesis In the late 1930's, for the most part frustrated in his poetic, prophetic, Zionist, and Palestine-cultural ambitions, torn between rival psychoanalytic schools, Velikovsky faced what we would probably call a "mid-life crisis." For Velikovsky it was a Torschlusspanik- a "fear-of-the-closing-of-the-gate".

104. The Genesis of the Jerusalem Scripta [Journals] [SIS Review]
... cuneiform, Arabic, or Ethiopian. After surveying a long list of printers, we selected Kreysing in Leipzig. Each contribution was to be published both in the original language of the author and in a Hebrew translation. Soon the response showed that two fields were best represented, "Orientalia et Judaica" and "Mathematica et Physica". EINSTEIN, then in his forty-third year, one year after he was awarded the Nobel prize, agreed to act as editor for the latter series. Soon we had contributions from a galaxy of illustrious names in mathematics, physics and engineering, like HARALD BOHR (whose mother was Jewish), L. S. ORNSTEIN, J. HADAMARD ...
105. Origins: Today's Science, Tomorrow's Myth, by James E. Strickling [Journals] [SIS Review]
... affect the validity or otherwise of his theories, but this simply is not true. Velikovsky was qualified in medicine and practised psycho-analysis, but he had no training or experience in the areas of science where he challenged orthodox opinion. He was treated with respect by eminent scientists such as the geologist, Harry Hess, and the physicist, Albert Einstein, but that in itself did not give him a scientific reputation. Strickling implies that Einstein accepted Velikovsky's theories of planetary catastrophism: Unfortunately, Einstein died before he could marshal any support for Velikovsky'. However, it was Velikovsky's arguments for catastrophism in general, not planetary catastrophism, which Einstein found convincing. After reading a pre-publication copy ...
106. Cosmic Heretics [Journals] [Aeon]
... here a hint of psychological pressure working to take for his own specifically the property of the father. V. was fixated on authority, the higher the better; he sought out acquaintances and enemies on high levels. But he did not gather intelligent up-coming young people until late in life; he has written a book on his conversations with Einstein, yet he would never have dreamed of writing a book of his immensely richer conversations with Juergens on electricity and Stecchini on ancient languages and the history of science. Why? Because they were unknown. His idea of arrival was naive. The great ones would recognize him on the basis of his books. The young would come along ...
107. The Electric Universe [Journals] [SIS Review]
... assumption, when applied to the charged sub-particles inside nucleons (protons and neutrons) results in an instantaneous dipolar force that manifests as gravity and inertial mass. Not bad for two very simple assumptions! No one has yet explained how light can be transmitted as a transverse electromagnetic wave without some medium (traditionally called the ether). Nor did Einstein explain what he meant physically by a photon. Sansbury has devised an experiment to test his model. On the first attempt it indicated that our hallowed notion of what light is and how it is transmitted is wrong. If so, Einstein will have to be retired from his exalted place in physics. Human nature and our need for ...
108. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... , the author notes that even respectable' science often requires belief in things which cannot be directly observed, implying that scientists in the 19th century who believed in ether were respectable at the time. A later experiment, which apparently established that the speed of light was invariable, not only blew away any ideas of ether, but also allowed Einstein to establish his theory of special relativity. Now, however, Consoli, of the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics, is questioning the results of this experiment and wants to mount a new one which might re-establish the presence of ether' or cosmic wind' and at the same time demolish Einstein. Will Consoli turn from crank to ...
... that the rotation of the Earth need not have been greatly altered to make the Sun appear stationary. Charles Hapgood in Path of the Pole, suggested that the Ice Age ended with a polar shift of a tectonic nature. Velikovsky's thesis does not preclude such behavior and his theory can accommodate and fit in well with Hapgood's view. Hapgood asked Einstein to consider his concept. What was Einstein's evaluation of the idea that the Ice Age ended with a pole shift? In the Foreward to Hapgood's book, p. XIV, Albert Einstein states, "I frequently receive communications from people who wish to consult me concerning their unpublished ideas. It goes without saying that these ideas are very ...
110. My Challenge to Conventional Views in Science [Journals] [Pensee]
... still in the pre-Faraday age, not even in the time of kerosene lamps, but of candles and oil. It was, of course, known since Gilbert that the Earth is a magnet, and G. E. Hale discovered that solar spots are magnetic and that the Sun possesses a general magnetic field. But this did not keep Einstein, a few years later, from accounting for the Mercurial precession by a new principle instead of first eliminating the effect of the newly discovered solar magnetic field on Mercury's movement. I claimed the existence of a magnetosphere above the terrestrial ionosphere- it was discovered by Van Allen in 1958; I claimed that this magnetosphere reaches as far as ...
