212. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the USA in 1976, this book has a revolutionary central hypothesis. Jaynes, a research psychologist at Princeton University, applies his knowledge of the working of the human brain to understanding the mind of ancient man. The consequences of his thesis are of immense importance for all those who study ancient history, mythology, and religions. THE GREAT EVOLUTION MYSTERY by Gordon Rattray Taylor (Secker, 1983). When the late Mr Taylor, a scientific journalist of repute, writes that Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection is crumbling under the attack of its critics we should all sit up and take note. For, without having to doubt the fact of evolution, he has produced ...

214. The Advancement of Science [Books] [de Grazia books]
... the several large fields of geology, astronomy, biology, and the historical sciences had been publishing new materials in which global disasters figured, sometimes mentioning possible exoterrestrial causes, at other times remarking on the shortening of time scales implied in the new discoveries. In paleontology, Stephen Jay Gould, collaborating with Niles Eldredge, was promoting catastrophism in evolution and paleontology as processes of "punctuated equilibria," thus keeping to the fore the gradualist and incremental aspects of natural history and offending as few people as possible. New York University September 26, 1980 De Grazia to the Editor, Discover Magazine (unpublished): In reporting the work of Eldredge and Gould, among others, towards ...
215. Chiron: Giant Comet, Agent of Catastrophe? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... This is an interesting suggestion: comets can become moons, perhaps? The distinction between snowy asteroid and dirty snowball' (comet) was already hazy at times, but now we must add a third category - icy moon. Does this mean that, without us really noticing it, the dirty snowball' theory of comets has undergone further evolution? Chiron's elongated orbit has been known to be unstable (actually chaotic') since 1979. In that year S. Oikawa and E. Everhart of the University of Denver predicted that it will be tossed out of its present orbit on a close approach to Saturn, probably in the next few million years. Their computations suggested that ...

217. Martian Meteorites in Ancient Myth and Modern Science [Journals] [Aeon]
... and disbelief among astronomers. A reappraisal of the evidence bearing on the question, however, suggests that Velikovsky deserves great credit for anticipating the Martian origin of certain meteorites. And if the author of Worlds in Collision was on the right track concerning the spectacular circumstances behind the arrival of these meteorites, their significance for a proper understanding of the evolution of the solar system far surpasses anything imagined by conventional astronomers. In what follows, we will first review the evidence which suggests that these meteorites actually came from Mars. We will then summarize, and briefly examine, the various theories as to how the rocks came to be expelled from the red planet to make their way to Earth ...
218. Afterword [Books]
... of mountains is not established, nor is the origin of ocean salt. Palaeomagnetic changes and reversals create unsolved problems. The cause of dramatic changes in climate is not understood. Exactly at those times when I determined that the catastrophes took place there were records of unexplained changes in the ocean level. Since its inception in 1859 the theory of evolution has altered the ways in which we think to such a degree that even philosophy has become a branch of Darwinian evolution, and is helpless to solve the problems that it creates for itself. Before the theory of evolution emerged it had been maintained that our Earth was created in six days. Slow evolution replaced instant creation. But was ...

... on that book and its reception, and expressed his thoughts in writing. We started at opposite points; the area of disagreement, as reflected in our correspondence, grew ever smaller, and though at his death (our last meeting was nine days before his passing) there remained clearly defined points of disagreement, his stand then demonstrated the evolution of his opinion in the space of eighteen months. Professor Waldo S. Glock, Chairman of the Department of Geology at Macalester College, St. Paul, Minnesota, a recognized authority in dendrochronology (dating of tree rings), with the help of his graduate students searched the literature pertaining to the tree rings of early ages, ...

... measurably equal coordinates of space; time is long and uninterrupted by sudden leaps; the surface of the earth has accumulated its features over long periods of time; nor are sudden leaps found in biology and cultural history, which have proceeded "by very short and slow steps" (Darwin); and social change is part of "cosmic evolution" (Herbert Spencer). The U paradigm can be considered broader than its circumscribed form as a mere hypothesis that rates of change in geology are to be considered as having been uniform unless proven to the contrary. Rather, the U idea is taken in its broadest form as a world view, in the period of its great ...
