31. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... May 25, 1955 Dear Dr. Hayes: I am writing to you at the request of Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky and because, as the secretary to the late Professor Einstein I feel that I should inform you of the following matter. During the course of the last eighteen months Professor Einstein had several discussions with Dr. Velikovsky with whom he had friendly personal relations about the latter ? s work. The last such discussion took place on April 8th. In the course of this conversation Professor Einstein said that he would write to you and suggest that you should give Dr. Velikovsky an opportunity to have his theory subjected to a radiocarbon test. As I was present at this discussion I can assure you that Professor Einstein did intend to write that suggestion to you and but for the lateness of the hour the letter to you would have been written then and there. Yours sincerely, Helen Dukas Secretary to Albert Einstein ...

33. Pole-Shift [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... 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 most of the highly publicized statements on this subject, however, the emphasis has been put not on successive displacements of the earth's outer shell but on continental drift: individual continents simultaneously moving away from or toward one another because of currents in the earth's interior. Professor Hapgood showed that the theory of continental drift (or "seafloor spreading"), as now presented to the public ...
34. Relativity Corner [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1997:1 (Oct 1997) Home¦ Issue Contents Relativity Corner Alasdair Beal The article on Einstein's special relativity theory in C&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 Twin Paradox: 'it is a paradox only if one has the idea of absolute time at the back of one's mind. In the theory of relativity there is no unique absolute time, but instead each individual has his own personal measure of ...
35. Is Gravity Necessary? (A Response to Charles Ginenthal's Electro-Gravitic Theory) [Aeon Journal $]
... bodies towards any one planet, at equal distances from the center of the planet, are proportional to the quantities of matter which they severally contain." Thus the amount of gravitation and amount of matter (number and kind of atoms) in a body become linked. In a corollary to the proposition, Newton states "that the power of gravity is of a different nature from the power of magnetism." It has been considered so ever since by the mechanists who dominate physics and astronomy. Two centuries after Newton, Albert Einstein modified gravitation by returning to Galileo's conception of inertia. To Einstein, a body perceived to be "reacting" to gravitational force was really moving freely, following a geodesic-a "right line" through a "curved space-time." Einstein's view of gravitation involved no force acting between masses; rather, Einstein proposed that the presence of matter was evident because the space had curvature. The forces of Newton become ghosts-excuses, if you will-used to indicate "why" a planet follows a curved path when we have declared it ought to ...

37. Jove's Thunderbolts [Velikovsky Archive Website] [Thunderbolts Website]
... and were explained as crashes between galaxies riding through one another. A new science radioastronomy was born. My understanding of the nature of the sun and planets made me assume that these bodies are charged, or that at least their atmospheres are strongly ionized. Of Jupiter and Saturn it is known that they influence in some mysterious manner the solar spot activity: but nobody thought that these bodies or their atmospheres are charged. Now, seeing my claims confirmed, I called Helen Dukas and told her that I would like to acquaint Professor Einstein with the discovery of the noises coming from Jupiter, and wished to see him, for a few minutes only we agreed that I should come Friday, April 8th, in the afternoon. Then I called my editor at Doubleday, Walter Bradbury, and told him that I would come the next day, in the morning. Already on the phone I drew his attention to the column in the Times. My book, Earth in Upheaval was being prepared for print, together with my lecture before the Forum of October 14 ...
38. Scientists, Journalists and Editors As Suppressors [The Velikovskian $]
... these do not present evidence that shows, as my own piece on Sagan did, that their contributors misrepresent their own data against Velikovsky and his theory. I strongly suspect that The Skeptical Inquirer 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 so. As presented by Bernard I. Cohen, Einstein stated that "there is no objective test of whether notions that contravene scientific ideas and theories are the work of a crank or a ...
39. The Last Letter [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... The Last Letter On March 14, 1955, Einstein completed his 76th year. He was adored and admired by all literate humanity as possibly no scientist before him, also admired for his human qualities, regarded as almost divine; but he was a lonesome man. Letters arrived daily at 112 Mercer Street in scores, from great men of the age and from humble ones; from politicians, scientists, and cranks. He liked to receive these letters. Einstein had experience with people who misused his replies and therefore he would keep copies of his answers, usually dictated to Miss Dukas, in the files. Only to very close people would he write by hand, and of these letters, too, Miss Dukas would occasionally then prepare typewritten copies for the records. For his birthday letters came from all parts of the world, from royalty, academies, statesmen, scientists, the clergy, the military, artists, housewives, students and schoolchildren. With a short note I sent him my Ages in Chaos, which he had not seen (it ...
40. Einstein In Free Fall [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 119: Sep-Oct 1998 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Einstein In Free Fall We now describe two abstruse phenomena, one of which is well-recognized, the other which is suggested by quantum mechanics, but is yet unobserved. Both involve only tiny physical effects. Even so, we should remember that a linchpin of Special Relativity is the tiny advance of Mercury's perihelion. It was Mercury's miniscule orbital anomaly that helped overthrow Newtonian celestial mechanics. Now, quantum mechanics may, in turn, undermine Relativity. The gist of this introduction is that we have here tiny, hard-to-visualize phenomena that are so scientifically important that it is worthwhile trying to understand them. In the first abstruse phenomenon, quantum mechanical effects demonstrate that the laws of classical electromagnetism are flawed. According to the classical view, an electron cruising by an ideal solenoid (a tube with an internal magnetic field but none outside) should be unaffected; that is, the electron should not "feel" the confined magnetic field ...
