11. Pole-Shift [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History VIII:1 (Jan 1986) Home | Issue Contents Pole-Shift Richard W. Noone During the International Geophysical Year (1958), Charles H. Hapgood published a book entitled Earth's Shifting Crust that was highly praised by Harvard geology professor Kirtley F. Mather and Albert Einstein. It set forth the idea that a great many problems which have remained unsolved in the history of the earth could be explained by the assumption that the earth's outer shell has slipped over the interior, thus changing the positions of the poles relative to the earth's surface. In the last two and a half decades anenormous amount of new data has reinforced this view. In ...
12. Scientific American And Owen Gingerich On Velikovsky [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... 183, raised criticisms of the late Immanuel Velikovsky that are in serious error. This is yet another episode in the history of Scientific American's attempts to defame Velikovsky and denigrate his work. Typical of the actions of this journal are the following: Scientific American refused to allow an ad for Velikovsky's book, Earth in Upheaval (with which Albert Einstein had been involved).1 Scientific American permitted Harrison Brown thereafter to misrepresent Velikovsky's statements by omitting the germane passages that said just the opposite of what Brown stated.2 When Velikovsky penned a reply to another attack by I. Bernard Cohen in Scientific American, Dennis Flanagan, the editor, refused to print it.3 To attack ...

14. Einstein's Biggest Blunder [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... channel4.co.uk/equinox/ Broadcast in the UK on Channel 4 in the programme Equinox, Mon 23rd October 2000. 9pm The idea that the speed of light is always constant, on which Einstein's Theory of Relativity depends, is the foundation stone of modern cosmology. Yet there were problems with the Theory of Relativity that perplexed Einstein himself. Now a group of scientists is finding solutions to those problems by proposing the heretical idea that the speed of light has changed since the Universe was created. In doing so, they are creating a new revolution in scientific thought. Space and time are relative - they stretch and contract depending on the motion of the observer - ...
15. The AAAS Symposium on Velikovsky [Books]
... science, if it is open, as Broad and Wade pointed out, is based on "taking a man and his ideas on their merits alone, regardless of his prestige, or qualifications, or status." (29) If, as Storer suggests, Velikovsky's ideas are so far beyond the pale of science, why did Albert Einstein write to Velikovsky, "[ t ]he historical arguments for violent events in the crust of the earth are quite convincing." (30) As early as 1946, after reading Worlds in Collision in manuscript form, Einstein wrote, "There is much interest in the book which proves that, in fact, catastrophes had taken ...
16. Stephen J. Gould And Immanuel Velikovsky: Essays In The Continuing Velikovsky Affair [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... " It should be remembered, perhaps, that Storer is a sociologist; so, though obviously he has a right to his opinion, he might be said to be "out of his tree" on the relevant topics, which are ancient history and celestial mechanics. Also, it is interesting to contrast Storer's opinion with that of Albert Einstein, who did know something about celestial mechanics, and told Velikovsky that scientists were gravely mistaken in not studying Worlds in Collision because of the "exceedingly important material it contains." And far from excusing the behaviour of the scientific establishment in the manner of Storer, Einstein said roundly that it was "mean and miserable." Storer ...

Einstein wrote to Velikovksy on March 17, 1955: "I have already read with care the first volume of memoirs to Worlds in Collision and have supplied it with a few marginal notes..

18. Master Of Innuendo. File III (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... to stamp out the new teaching by exorcism and not by argument.... When the omitted part of the passage is reinstituted where it belongs. Brown's allegations become baseless. He wrote further: Perhaps the most flagrant use of innuendo is revealed in the "Acknowledgments" section of Earth in Upheaval. Here Velikovsky implies strongly that Albert Einstein was beginning to understand Velikovsky's views and that the two men were close to agreement: "The late Dr. Albert Einstein during the last eighteen months of his life (November, 1953-April, 1955), gave me much of his time and thought.... We started at opposite points; the area of disagreement, as ...

... underpin the accepted paradigm to see if they might be wrong. Unfortunately, it is at this point we are usually torpedoed by fashionable dogma, as shown by the opening comment from Lee Smolin, who also wrote "What is space and what is time? This is what the problem of quantum gravity is about. In general relativity, Einstein gave us not only a theory of gravity but a theory of what space and time are- a theory that overthrew the previous Newtonian conception of space and time. The problem of quantum gravity is how to combine the understanding of space and time we have from relativity theory with the quantum theory, which also tells us something essential and deep ...
20. Relativity Corner [Journals] [SIS Review]
... &C Review 1996:1 [1 ] generated a heavy postbag and space only permits a summary of the material received. Some have sprung to Einstein's defence, notably Dick Atkinson, who agreed that the explanation of the Twins Paradox' given in B.A . Westwood's textbook [2 ] certainly was rubbish, but Westwood is not Einstein. Einstein accounted for the result in a completely different way . . . if Westwood's dismissal of this illusory paradox' is badly argued, blame Westwood, not Einstein, whose position could not have been more clear. Hawking makes exactly the same point (in his A Brief History of Time [3 ]) with regard to the ...
