31. Celestial Dynamics and "Worlds in Collision" [Journals] [SIS Review]
... "correctness": each model stands or falls within itself. It is either applicable to the situation or it is not. In science, general validity is evanescent. A good example of the confusion rampant among scientists today is the comparison between Newtonian Gravitation and Einstein's General Relativity. A perturbation unexplained by the Newtonian analysis is not evidence that Einstein is right. The observation that sunlight grazing the Sun's limb is bent in conformity with Einstein's calculation is not evidence that Newton is wrong. The first shows "Newton" to have an unexplained residual - thus "his" formulation is inexact. The second shows Einstein has modelled correctly the photon-Sun "collision" using a curved space to ...
32. Pompous Asimov [Books]
... would agree with it. (After all, Science is right, isn't it? And all scientists disbelieve religion, don't they?) The only problem with Asimov's holier-than-thou attitude, however, is that on closer inspection it is quite wrong about the attitude of men of science about religion, for, if we look only at Newton and Einstein, arguably the two greatest scientists of the modern era, (and somewhat better respected than Asimov himself), we find the opposite. Einstein never wavered throughout his life from the belief that whatever science discovered was merely a portion of "the Old One's" secrets, and Newton set out on his task to solve the riddle of ...

At first, the new regime did not seem unduly harsh considering the revolutionary situation. During the winter and spring, in pursuance of his medical degree, Velikovsky performed his intern duties at various clinics and attended a class in psychiatry. He also applied for and received a passport for travel to Palestine. Every week ...

... well as several. faculty members at the University of California. In this quest he both wrote the museums on his own and enlisted the aid of others acquainted with his work and objectively interested in the possible results of tests. These include the late Robert Pfeiffer, then Chairman of the Department of Semitic Languages and History at Harvard; Albert Einstein, who shortly before his death had verbally expressed a desire to use his influence to help get the tests made; Francis Asip, Rev. Benjamin Adams and Rev. Warner Sizemore, all sympathetic readers of Ages in Chaos. The official replies cover an expressive variety of reasons why the tests could not or need not be made. ...
35. Minds in Chaos [Books] [de Grazia books]
... spent in Berlin, where he and Prof. Heinrich Loewe founded and published Scripta Universitatis with funds supplied by Velikovsky's father. In this series of volumes, conceived as a cornerstone for what would become the University of Jerusalem, contributions from outstanding Jewish scholars in all countries were published in their native languages and in Hebrew translation. The late Albert Einstein edited the mathematical-physical volume of the Scripta. In Berlin Velikovsky met and married violinist Elisheva Kramer of Hamburg. Later the same year the young couple moved to Palestine, and the doctor began his practice of medicine. For fifteen years this practice - first as a general practitioner in Jerusalem, and later, after psychiatric training in Europe, ...
36. Is Gravity Necessary? (A Response to Charles Ginenthal's Electro-Gravitic Theory) [Journals] [Aeon]
... 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 ...

... been performed on their validity..." However, it only takes one experiment to put this concept in doubt. Velikovsky posed the following respecting the motion of charged and uncharged pendulums in an article titled "The Pendulum Experiment" in which he cited Albert Einstein's Relativity, 11th edition, p. 59, regarding fundamentals of gravity. Einstein stated, "In contrast to electric and magnetic fields, the gravitational field exhibits a most remarkable property, which is of fundamental importance... Bodies which are moving under the sole influence of a gravitational field receive an acceleration, which does not in the least depend either on the material or the physical state of the body. ...
38. Jove's Thunderbolts. File III (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... great heat, but Jupiter is a cold planet and, therefore, nobody expected radio noises coming from it or from any other planet. In conventional astronomy Jupiter is an inert body, neutral in charge; in my understanding it is the center of a powerful electromagnetic system. The summer of 1954, in a letter that I wrote to Einstein, I included these sentences: ". .. I question the neutral state of celestial bodies. There are various tests that could be made. For instance, does Jupiter send radio noises or not? This can easily be found, if you should wish." It was a plea to help me convince others that this test ...
39. The Velikovsky Affair [Books] [de Grazia books]
... product of chance encounters of purpose and provision. Under these circumstances, scientists follow the laws of nonrational collective behaviour. They think in stereotypes (e .g . the eternal harmony of the spheres, uniformitarianism, catastrophism). They circulate ideas via popularization and texts . Thus have Newton, Galileo, Darwin, Freud and Einstein been conveyed. Scientists are at the mercy of popularizers. Their own minds are formed by simplistic ideas, try as they will to evade their grip. A new theory spreads as a rumour, simplified, overly precise, and success comes as a surprise. No two persons understand its extended meanings quite alike. It is resistant to ...

... conclusion. One despairs, today, of evoking, for a generation that did not experience it, the hopelessness with which this instrument of abrupt annihilation seemed to invest the future of the world, in that hour of what might otherwise have been celebrated as a glorious victory." (3 ) In an attempt to assuage world hysteria, Einstein made a public statement on August 11, 1945, in which he said that "in developing atomic or nuclear energy, science did not draw upon supernatural strength, but merely imitated the actions of the sun's rays." He also went on to say that "atomic power is no more unnatural than when I sail a boat on ...
