171. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Velikovsky, but Apollo remains an enigma. Accepting the premise that the major gods have an astronomical origin, Apollo's usual explanation of being a sun god does not readily fit into Velikovskian concepts. Perhaps one of your members has some ideas and can place Apollo in his rightful place? R. A. Herring, Bracknell, Berkshire. Catastrophic Evolution Dear sir, The Sunday Times magazine 13/1 /80 contained a short article which I found very interesting from a catastrophist evolution point of view, and certainly merits inclusion in the biological Source-book. It showed pictures of and dealt with interviews with members of an African tribe in Southern Rhodesia, many of whom have feet with only ...

173. Mother Goddess and Warrior-Hero (Part One) [Journals] [Aeon]
... which is not the case at all. With the growing speculation on physical models of the polar configuration, an adequate summary of the planetary myths involved becomes increasingly vital. Apart from the Earth, four presently-visible planets have a place in the model of the polar configuration as I have defined it, though their relative positions change significantly with the evolution of the configuration. The planets are: Saturn, Jupiter, Venus and Mars. In this four-part series I shall take up the special roles of the two planets Venus and Mars, both highly active in the evolution of the original planetary assembly. As an introduction to the mother goddess and warrior hero, this series can only adumbrate ...
174. The Ship of Heaven [Journals] [Aeon]
... forms of the polar configuration the archetypes and their mythological representations in ritual and art the symbols. The archetypes, then, evolve only in the sense that the original celestial forms evolved through a series of transformations. The symbols, on the other hand, though inspired originally by tangible objects in the sky, are human concepts subject to endless evolution. And just as soon as the age of the gods ended, the immediate perceptual tie between symbol and archetype was broken, cutting the human concepts loose and setting in motion an evolutionary chain that could only lead to the progressive dilution of all mythical and symbolic constructs. I will therefore follow what is a self-evident tenet within the framework ...
175. Mythic Mountains by Isaac Vail [Books]
... followed up. Let us imagine a host of men, collected as congregation implies. Imagine God's wrath falling upon it or a plague sweeping through the crowd. The assembled vapors with a plague and Deistic wrath visible is a real scene even now. The "Mount of Congregation" becomes more a spectacular reality as we reason on the inevitable evolution of vapor invested skies. All canopies assembling at the pole were for good or for evil: that is, they either stamped the skies with majestic grandeur or with appalling and terrifying invasion of trouble and fear. There is some meaning in the fact that the word in Hebrew for collecting or assembling is asaph, where that polar element ...
176. Punctuated Equilibrium Proven?itled [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... Burden, firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Sun, 07 Jul 1996 12:54:32 + 10 From Science, 21 June 1996, Vol 272, Issue 5269: The abstract is printed below - I just noticed it in the Science Web page, and haven't hunted down the printed version yet. Punctuated Evolution Caused by Selection of Rare Beneficial Mutations, Santiago F. Elena, Vaughn S. Cooper, Richard E. Lenski. For more than two decades there has been intense debate over the hypothesis that most morphological evolution occurs during relatively brief episodes of rapid change that punctuate much longer periods of stasis. A clear and unambiguous case of punctuated ...
177. What is Uniformitarianism and how did it get here? [Journals] [Horus]
... arrange evidence so as to satisfy a uniformitarian view. Similarly, the political battle was won by the liberals, and the power flow between the King, the Parliament, and the People changed direction. It was in this atmosphere that Darwin made the headlines, and the rest is history. After some early skirmishes, Darwin's "theory of evolution" won the day - a mechanistic theory of evolution subservient to and dependent upon geological uniformitarianism: gradual change over eons, with no violent jumps. Discontinuities in the fossil record, evidence of mass extinctions - all this was swept under the carpet. The new picture was one of long-term stability and imperceptible change. There was no evidence ...

... the insect; in plants the rate of germination and growth was greatest when the seeds were orientated towards the south magnetic pole and plant roots tended to align themselves in the same direction. (From roots to wooden flutes is not such a gigantic step - perhaps we should give Mr Galway the benefit of the doubt?) With regard to evolution the author concludes, "Our investigations have shown that evolution is based on rigorous physical laws of development of the genetic systems of species, and that the GMF is one of the main factors of this controlling mechanism .. . there are grounds for regarding sharp changes in the GMF as a prime and direct factor in the evolution of ...
179. Origins: Today's Science, Tomorrow's Myth, by James E. Strickling [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of its tenets (e .g . the six days' of creation) depend on the wording of the King James Bible and are not supported by other versions. Above all, the fossil record shows clearly that life-forms have changed through time, contrary to the claims of creationism. On the other hand, Strickling does not find gradualistic evolution, as proposed by Charles Darwin and later by neo-Darwinians, any more convincing as an explanation of the history of life on Earth. He points out, correctly, that the fossil record shows evidence of abrupt transitions - but Darwin and his uniformitarian geologist mentor, Charles Lyell, argued that this was because the record was faulty, not ...

... is well-know: Saturn's ring system (especially its A ring) could not survive for longer 100 millions years. This implies that the rings seem to have resulted from a very unlikely event, perhaps the destruction of a moon impact cometary or tidal disruption of a large comet passing within Saturn's Roche radius. I present another scenario of formation and evolution rings in the light of the dynamics of Prometheus-Pandora, Saturn's inner satellite pair. These moons have resonances with the rings, pull angular momentum out of the rings and therefore evolve outward. This effect is particulary rapid because Prometheus (larger and closer to the rings) should overtake Pandora in less 100 million years. The most likely outcome ...
