131. Global Catastrophes: New Evidence from Astronomy, Biology and Archaeology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... in that era: the presence of at least one giant comet, and numerous smaller ones, on earth crossing orbits, gradually declining in activity between the 10th and 1st millennia BC. He concluded by describing the visual and catastrophic effects that would result from the Earth periodically passing through the ring of debris formed by the comet. Extinction and evolution Biochemist Dr Trevor Palmer After lunch, Dr Trevor Palmer, Senior Lecturer in Biochemistry at Trent Polytechnic, took over where Clube had left off by giving a comprehensive overview of the biological effects of meteorite bombardment. Assuming the basic validity of Clube and Napier's calculations, the Earth must have suffered several large impacts during the period since life first ...
132. The Paradoxical Primate [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. IX No. 2 (Winter 1984) Home | Issue Contents The Paradoxical Primate A Review of The Aquatic Ape: A Theory of Human Evolution by Elaine Morgan Stein and Day, New York, 1982, 170 pp., illustrations; $14.95. Reviewed by Roger W. Wescott Ever since Linnaeus took the radical step of classifying human beings as members of the same zoological order as apes, monkeys and lemurs, taxonomists have been puzzled as to how best to subclassify our species. Are we overgrown lemurs, upright monkeys, or hairless apes? Following the death of the eminent British primatologist Frederic Wood Jones, a consensus developed that ...
133. Psychoceramics [Journals] [Aeon]
... still baloney. As something of a science journalist and commentator over these same past two decades, I have been made aware of a number of interesting, if not challenging, changes- in which we all have shared- that have profoundly affected our way of thinking about the world in which we live: Shifts in thinking about cosmology and evolution, and in subsets of scientific disciplines as computers and microelectronics, molecular biology, nucleonics, paleoarcheology, and the like. What is even more interesting is that there have been no major scientific breakthroughs in the physical sciences during this same period of time. Actually it's been much longer, as the last one- the invention of the ...
134. A Rage to Deny: The Roots of the Velikovsky Affair [Books]
... club- controlled science while catastrophism is still met with unabated anger, dishonesty and unprofessionalism. That has to be explained. To discover the reason, we will have to take a much closer look at Darwin in relation to Velikovsky than usual. In my opinion, he did not write The Origin of Species primarily to offer his theory of evolution. What I mean by this surprising assertion is that that theory was merely the specific proof for a much larger hypothesis whose outline we can glimpse behind every word in the book. The clues are most abundant and direct in the concluding chapter, where one would expect the author to finally say what is most important to him. It ...
135. 'No Impact': René Gallant (1906-1985) [Books]
... Ursula Marvin's study of 1986 rightly noted that there had been two "profound conceptual changes in the geological science of the [previous] two decades". The first was the "decisive swing towards a mobilist plate tectonic earth model" in 1966. The second, which followed soon after, was "the new insights on the origin and evolution of the Solar System brought by the study of meteorites, the Moon and planets" [7 ] . To the historian the most fascinating aspect of the second conceptual change remains the lack, even after 30 years, of a consensus of the effects of meteoritic impact on life on earth. The other extraordinary feature in the rise of ...

137. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . One which was seen in December 1997 lit up the southern tip of Greenland, being observed by several trawlers and generating seismic signals as far away as Norway and Germany. Mercury Scientific American Nov. 97, pp. 28-35 It is difficult to fit Mercury, the planet closest to the Sun, into astronomers' general scheme of the evolution of the Solar System. We know very little about it but it appears to be a body of extremes. It has a highly inclined and eccentric orbit. Its day is the longest in the Solar System and is longer than its year, locked in a 2 to 3 relationship by an unknown process. Its day time temperatures are ...
138. Why People Believe Weird Things: Pseudoscience, Superstition, and Other Confusions of Our Time [Journals] [Aeon]
... , in fact, they are extremely rare. Most mutations are either neutral or deleterious in nature, a fact of no small importance in judging the "all-sufficiency" of natural selection. Elsewhere Shermer writes that: "No one, and I mean no one, working in the field is debating whether natural selection is the driving force behind evolution." [4 ] This is simply not the case. In addition to Ted Steele's laboratory in Australia, which endorses a form of Neo-Lamarckism, [5 ] there are various scientists working in France and elsewhere who remain Lamarckians and thus question the adequacy of natural selection as the driving force of evolution. Other biologists call attention to ...
... university, put forth a defense of the claims of classical studies to a place in the regular university curriculum. For this one crime he was recently editorially assailed and vilified through several columns of an American organ of natural science, and despite the fact that he was notoriously a disbeliever in Revelation, and was a professed admirer of Comte's atheistic evolutional sociology, the dreadful charge is brought forward: " He was in the Golden Age, Paradise Lost dispensation of thought, in which the notions of the early perfection of mankind and the superiority of the ancients were contrasted with the degeneracy of the moderns; and so completely was his intellect possessed and perverted by this view that he was ...

... have calculated that it is leaking away 5 times faster than it returns, so eventually Earth will dry up. However, others point out that different theories indicate that Earth also gains water through asteroid collisions. D. Deming of the University of Oklahoma, even suggests that extra-terrestrial influxes of not only water but also carbon, could have influenced evolution and extinctions. Atmospheric Composition New Scientist 17.6 .00, p. 19, 11.3 .00, p. 23, 16.9 .00, p. 10 In the early days of the Earth, the Sun is supposed to have been cooler than it is now and there was not sufficient carbon dioxide ...
