151. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the Cretaceous period is now well known but it also began with a period of large scale extinction. A huge crater in southern Africa has recently been given a dating for the same time. It may well prove to be as large as the crater in Yucatan, now accepted as caused by the impact at the end of the Cretaceous. EVOLUTION T. rex's grandfather National Geographic March 1997, geographica The fiercesome Tyrannosaurus rex was a North American beast, but an older tyrannosaur is known from Mongolia. Now another type, at 120 Myrs old 30 Myrs older still, has been found in Thailand, suggesting that tyrannosaurs arose in Asia. It doesn't take much Scientific American February 1997 ...
152. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... us a fascinating glimpse of the history of early man through the spy-glass of his radical theory of The Origins of Human Society. The ladies present were very pleased to learn that, according to Chris Knight, women created culture, something we have long felt to be the truth. Chris opened with a brief account of current ideas about the evolution of early hominids, expressing his sympathies with the aquatic ape theory as propounded by Elaine Morgan. He told how gradualist views of human evolution have given way to the theory of punctuated equilibrium and that the latest analyses of human genetic material indicate that all modern humans stem from one Eve' in Africa only about 240,000 years ago ...

... chronicles from historical records of ancient peoples around the world has not been extensively collated. The evidence pointed to an unwelcome conclusion: the Earth has experienced a series of cataclysmic crises that occurred in pre-human, pre-historic and even historical times. Each of these had enormous effects on the Earth and its inhabitants, directing the course of geological and biological evolution. Although he thinks he has delineated a number of separate episodes going back as far as the memory of man is retained in human records, the book Worlds in Collision pertains only to those since the fifteenth century, B.C . The story of the earlier events is reserved for volumes now in typescript. Additionally, Velikovsky believes ...

155. Darwin. Ch.2 To Know And Not To Know (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... through mere reading: he saw the very remains of catastrophe victims, not in museums, but in situ, in the pampas and on the slopes of the Andes. Such an experience is more compelling than literary information. Yet, two decades later Darwin propounded a non sequitur in ascribing all changes in the animal kingdom to a very slow evolution through competition, and by an extended dialectic he endeavored to demonstrate that the earth pursued a stable evolution on a stable course of uninterrupted circling, because the idea of a shaking of the entire globe was mentally beyond him. But he saw these animals, their bones splintered, heaped in the strangest assemblages- giant sloths and mastodons together ...
156. Nemesis for Evolutionary Gradualism? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... galactic plane, or ejection of core material from large gaseous planets. Following the publication in 1980 of the paper of Luis and Walter Alvarez and their colleagues [1 ], who argued that the mass extinctions at the end of the Cretaceous Period were caused by the impact of an asteroid, the debate about the contribution of such catastrophes to evolution has developed apace [2-8]. The Alvarez group showed that there was an iridium abundance anomaly at various sites at the Cretaceous-Tertiary (C-T) boundary in marine sedimentary rocks, conventionally dated to be about 65 million years (Myr) before the present (B .P .) , coincident with the extinction of most planktonic foraminifers [ ...

... , they can be discussed as a single entity. The main thesis of the authors, Michael Cremo and Richard Thompson of the Bhaktivedanta Institute, San Diego, is that anatomically modern humans (sometimes called Homo sapiens sapiens to distinguish from more archaic forms of Homo sapiens) have a much longer history than currently accepted. They also deny that evolution has taken place, although that particular theme is generally understated. Cremo and Thompson are said to be authors and researchers' of the history of science, based at an Institute dedicated to the advanced study of the nature and origin of life in light of ancient India's Vedic literature'. Their lack of formal scientific credentials (other than ...

... pointed out that such a rapid shift would disorientate migrating birds and whales. One scientist speculated as long ago as 1984 that magnetic reversals could have played a part in mass extinctions and affected DNA synthesis and suggests that really large rates of change of field would undoubtedly affect the genomes of living organisms. Neo-Darwinists take heed: Velikovskian ideas of rapid evolution associated with catastrophes are not so far fetched after all. By Jupiter Scientific American Dec. 95, p. 33 Jupiter has the most extensive magnetosphere in the Solar System. If the volume of space it encloses could somehow be made visible it would look larger than the full Moon in our night sky. What of the other planets ...
160. Minds in Chaos [Books] [de Grazia books]
... records ranging from unequivocal statements in written documents, through remembrances expressed in myth and legend, to mute archaeological evidence in the form of obsolete calendars and sundials - and his examination of geological and paleontological reports from all parts of the globe led him to conclude that modern man's snug little world, set in a framework of celestial harmony and imperceptible evolution, is but an illusion. Velikovsky's reappraisal of world history ravages established doctrine in disciplines from astronomy to psychology: universal gravitation of masses is not the only force governing celestial motions-electromagnetic force must also play important roles; enigmatic breaks in the geological record denote, not interminable ages of languorous erosion and deposition gently terminated by cyclic submergence ...
