21. Einstein In Need Of Update? [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2001:1 (Jun 2001) Home | Issue Contents Einstein In Need Of Update?www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2001/02/010212075309.htm In 1905, Einstein made major changes to laws of physics when he established his theory of relativity. Now Einstein's laws might also undergo significant changes. Dimitri Nanopoulos, who holds the rank of Distinguished Professor of Physics at Texas A&M University and heads the Houston Advanced Research Center's Group for Astroparticle Physics, established, along with other physicists, that the speed of light, instead of being the constant value of 186,282 miles per second, might change. Dimitri Nanopoulos ...
22. The Velikovsky Affair [Books] [de Grazia books]
... . The controversy has had many striking facets. One has been the large participation of the public. It continues to increase. Velikovsky has managed to talk to people about mythology, archaeology, astronomy, and geology, without doing injustice to those disciplines, in an amazing and unprecedented manner. Socrates, Aristotle, Galileo, Freud, and Einstein - to name a few thinkers who were implicated in crowd phenomena' - were not public figures in the sense here taken. His public - a well-behaved, educated, well-intentioned and diversified aggregate-has supported Velikovsky on every possible occasion. That he was a foreigner with a Russian accent, a psychiatrist, unequivocably a Jew, denounced ...
23. Isaac Asimov in Absurdity [Books]
... for a while, but the reaction of astronomers varied from amusement to anger, and the Velikovskian theory has never, for one moment, been taken seriously either by scientists or by Biblical scholars." (1 ) All that this paragraph proves is that Asimov either read nothing of the literature related to these issues or he lies. Albert Einstein, I need hardly remind anyone, is a scientist who indeed took Velikovsky's theory "seriously." "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. He read several of my manuscripts and supplied them with marginal notes ...
... would never be of any practical use; and in the third and final phase, when the discovery has received general recognition, there are usually people who say that it is not original and has been anticipated by others. W.L .B . Beveridge, The Art of Scientific Investigation, (NY 1950), pp. 151-152 Einstein stated toward the end of his life, "it has always hurt me to think that [Galileo] Galilei did not acknowledge the work of Kepler... That alas is vanity." Einstein concluded, "You find it in so many scientists." Bernard Cohen, An Interview With Einstein, (in French 1979) ...
25. Book Shelf [Journals] [Aeon]
... break with the geometry of Euclid in over two millennia. (1 ) At the turn of the century Max Planck forwarded the quantum theory, postulating that radiation energy released by the newly discovered radioactive elements and by x-ray sources were emitted in discreet packets of energy, or quanta. Building on this despite being dissuaded by Planck, in 1905 Einstein wrote several seminal papers treating quanta in photo-electric effects and set down his special theory of relativity. A decade later he outlined his general theory of relativity, both theories using the tools of Riemann's tensors. In the early 1920s Theodr Kaluza stunned Einstein with his own unification paper, combining Einstein's theory of gravity with Maxwell's theory of light by ...
26. The Early Years: Part Two [Journals] [Aeon]
... Greta Garbo, Josephine Baker, the grandiose productions of Max Reinhardt's "Theatre of the 5,000," three opera companies running simultaneously..., the opening night of Wozzeck, and The Three-Penny Opera.... Almost overnight, the somewhat staid capital of Kaiser Wilhelm had become the center of Europe, attracting scientists like Einstein and von Neumann, writers like Auden and Isherwood, the builders and designers of the Bauhaus School, and a turbulent colony of more than fifty thousand Russian refugees. Vladimir Nabokov gave tennis lessons here.... (2 ) Berlin had three Russian dailies and five weeklies. Besides Velikovsky, the Russian emigres in Berlin included two ...
... , Egyptologist Walter Federn, astronomer Lloyd Motz, physicist Carl Friedrich von Weiszäcker, astronomer Gordon Atwater, astronomer Walter S. Adams, physicist Valentin Bargmann, archeologist Claude F. A. Schaeffer, cultural historian Jacques Barzun, electrophysicist Alfred Goldsmith, Egyptologist Etienne Drioton, literary critic Salvador de Madariaga, geologist Harry H. Hess and physicist Albert Einstein. Each of these people, whether or not they agreed with Velikovsky in full or even in part, listened to his ideas with interest and courtesy and responded as helpfully as they could. Quite the contrary was the reaction of Harvard astronomer Harlow Shapley, (perhaps the most influential man in his field in America at that time) ...
28. Henry H. Bauer and Immanuel Velikovsky [Books]
... is a very great prejudice." Anatole France The Crime of Sylvestre Bonnard, Chapter 4 ". . . there is no objective test of whether notions that contravene scientific ideas and theories are the work of a crank or a genius, nor whether such ideas will forever seem crazy or perhaps become the orthodoxy of the future." Albert Einstein, Scientific American (September 1955), pp. 14-16 "Every new movement or manifestation of human activity, when unfamiliar to people's minds, is sure to be misrepresented and misunderstood." Edward Carpenter The Drama of Love and Death Chapter 8, Note ". . . the inexcusable guilt is that they lied." Lodovico Geymonat ...
29. A PERSONAL MEMOIR [Journals] [Aeon]
... responded decisively to their challenges. The powerful reasoning of these volumes was, at the time, overwhelming. It was not long after reading (and rereading) his work that I began to correspond with Velikovsky, who was then living in Princeton, New Jersey. Here he had moved from New York, a move designed to be near Einstein (whom he had known in Europe), in order to carry on discussions of his work. At that time I was pastor of a Presbyterian church in Malvern, Pennsylvania, just an hour's drive away, and my correspondence with Velikovsky was followed by visits to his home. A lifelong friendship would develop. During the period of ...
30. Scientists, Journalists and Editors As Suppressors [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... deals with all controversial research which challenges Establishment Science in the same way. Years ago, Martin Gardner, a contributor to The Skeptical Inquirer, a highly visible promoter of Establishment Science and a vociferous critic of Velikovsky, wrote: 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 pseudoscientist. (1 ) It is fascinating to recall that Albert Einstein felt quite differently about Velikovsky's work and said ...
