241. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... period of dark and cold as suggested to be the main cause of extinctions after an impact, although certain groups vanished completely at this time. Extinction rates of plants were far lower in New Zealand than western North America; it is suggested that this indicates that the impact occurred at the start of the growing season in the northern hemisphere. EVOLUTION Poles apart National Geographic, August 1993, geographica Leaves which fell in South Island, New Zealand, at the end of the Cretaceous period when New Zealand was much nearer the Antarctic Circle, yet obviously warmer than today, bear a striking resemblance to those of maple and oak - trees which only grow today in the northern hemisphere. ...
242. Epilogue [Books] [de Grazia books]
... variety and to use this knowledge to practical ends like making cement and finding oil. To all of which the quantavolutionist says "amen." Neither geology, nor any other science in its historical aspect, has to fear the idea of collapsed time, but can derive theoretical benefits from it. Let us speak for a moment of chemical evolution. Should it be as well termed quantavolution? I have here above (Page 119) spoken of the Miller-Urey experiments on the initiation of primitive life processes, and have generally considered the possible derivation of earthly existence from exoterrestrial and atmospheric sources. In Solaria Binaria we go farther into the matter, elaborating the life-creating and sustaining plenum of ...

... matter are well documented and include (1 ) induced dipole moments in suspended cells, (2 ) orientation of cells parallel or perpendicular to the field, (3 ) cellular deformation, (4 ) erythrocyte and other cellular destruction in a non-thermal manner.(25) Uffen claimed that the geomagnetic field may be a major factor in the evolution of life through its control of the space corpuscular radiation.(26) Davis and Schwan state that laboratory work with rodents and other animals indicates the life span of man can be extended by the proper application of magnetic fields.(27, 25) Also, there is a large literature on the beneficial effects of air ions on ...
244. The Genesis of Religion [Books] [de Grazia books]
... too, is prompt to appear and as fast as it is instrumented, married into, if not born of, the sacred. We speak thus, of a hologenesis of homo sapiens, culture, religion, and gods. Logically, the evolutionary theory of a slow final development of homo is gone; so is the theory of cultural evolution, of the evolution of religions, and of the progressive evolution of a concept of god. All of these things are today very much perceived, afforded and functioning as they did in the first centuries of humankind. The science that those of us who write books so highly esteem represents a sharp break with the history of mankind, ...
245. A New Introduction to Earth in Upheaval [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of unravelling science ticked ever more swiftly, and man's penetration into the mysteries of space had the aura of revelation. The face of the Earth, the face of the solar system, the sight of our galaxy and of the universe beyond, all changed from serene and placid to embattled and convulsed. The Earth is no abode for peaceful evolution for aeons uncounted, or counted in billions of years, with mountain building all finished by the Tertiary, with no greater event in millions of years than the fall of a large meteorite, with a prescribed orbit, unchanging calendar, unchanging latitudes, sediment accumulating slowly with the precision of an apothecary scale, with a few riddles unsolved ...
246. Catastrophes: the Diluvial Evidence [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Jubilee Event" Home | Issue Contents Catastrophes: the Diluvial Evidence by Trevor Palmer Trevor Palmer is Professor of Life Sciences and Senior Dean at the Nottingham Trent University.He graduated in biochemistry from Cambridge University and obtained a PhD from London University He is the author of Understanding Enzymes, Principles of Enzymology for Technological Applications and Controversy: Catastrophism and Evolution - The Ongoing Debate. He has been a member of SIS Council since 1986. Summary Flood myths are found throughout the world. As late as the 17th century, one particular flood myth (that involving Noah) was regarded as the literal truth by almost everyone in Europe. In contrast, for most of the 20th century, ...

248. Were All Dinosaurs Reptiles? [Journals] [Kronos]
... geological strata in which fossils are found is measured by tens and hundreds of millions of years. However, all conclusions of geology must be revised in a very definite manner. It is possible that not tens of millions of years lay between the full extinction of the large Dinosauria and our age, but only some thousands of years. The evolution of species, as it would proceed in a world not disturbed by catastrophes, would require for its course quite a different span of time than if cataclysms intervened; cataclysms could do in only hours or weeks for what evolution would require millennia to accomplish. The huge extinct animals- dinosaurs- are classified as reptiles, and their time ...

... excellent contribution to the debate is contained in Catastrophist Geology (3 :2 , 1978, pp. 10-18). It is possible that the flints do provide evidence of catastrophism on a massive scale, but not for the reasons suggested by MacKinnon. - David J. Tyler, Cheshire, UK Mutilated Terms?Dear Sir, As the evolution controversy continues, and various experts punctuate their equilibria without appearing to recognize their closeness to Velikovsky, I wonder if the time might be right for a reconsideration of the term "catastrophic evolution". It is now almost impossible to distinguish between "Darwinism" and "evolution", since the terms have for so long been virtually synonymous ...
... computation of time. Modern archaeological scholars have been singularly obtuse about the idea because they have cultivated a pristine ignorance of astronomical thought, some of them actually ignorant of the Precession itself. The split between the two cultures begins right here. But apart from this, although the scholars unanimously cling to the accepted conventions about the tempo of historical evolution, they widely disagree when it comes to judging the evidence in detail. The verdicts concerning the familiarity of ancient Near Eastern astronomers with the Precession depend, indeed, on arbitrary factors: namely, on the different scholarly opinions about the difficulty of the task. Ernst Dittrich, for instance, remarked that one should not expect much astronomical ...
