261. Solar System Studies (Part 2) [Journals] [Aeon]
... under oil fields, the gases mix with and alter the nature of the petroleum from field to field. Most natural gas found to date has been in oil fields merely because that is where deep drilling has been common. Earth Mysteries The planet Earth presents so many conundrums that it is not surprising to find many mutually exclusive theories concerning its evolution. It is not possible to deal with these in a rigorously comprehensive manner in a brief paper. On the other hand, mention of some of the more outstanding items of interest must be made. These will include Earth surface weather, Earth's magnetic field, biological eras, plate tectonics, and Greenland ice cores. The torrid zone ...
262. Heretics, Dogmatists and Science's Reception of New Ideas (Part 2) [Journals] [Kronos]
... felt he had reliable reasons for so taking it. He inferred that an Old Testament miracle could have been an actual historic event which Adam's posterity remembered, suppressed, yet diversely recorded, and he set out to dig up the records.... His imaging is an orchestration from all the available records: it composes them into an evolution compounding itself of catastrophes. The resulting portrayal is a signal achievement of imagination and intelligence working in close harmony to restore authenticity to an early image of an actual happening A physician skilled in the theory and practice of psychoanalysis, Velikovsky postulated that the actual happening must have been too disastrous for homo sapiens to remember as such. The memory ...
263. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Minoan Myth by Sandy MacGillivray (2000) An established Canadian archaeologist argues that Evans invented the currently accepted view of the Minoan civilisation according to his own Victorian preconceptions. Evans' reconstructions at Knossos are simply fanciful reconstructions and he doctored evidence to fit his theories. The Riddled Chain by Jeffrey McKee (Rutgers University Press, $27) Human evolution is currently believed to have been channelled by climate changes. McKee thinks it has been independent of climate and the prime agent of change is some intrinsic internal force. He points out the huge role of chance in the science of palaeontology; a group may not have become extinct simply because there are no fossils, because there may not ...
264. Predicting the Past [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:6 (Aug 2000) Home | Issue Contents Predicting the Past The Osiris Series Sponsored by Cosmos and Chronos Series Editor- Dwardu Cardona Volume III Is the present condition of the world the result of eons of peaceful evolution? Or has Earth been shaped by wrenching catastrophes some of which were recent and widespread enough to have deeply traumatized all of humankind? Did early human societies develop gradually in uneventful natural surroundings, moving incrementally from savagery to civilization? Or did horrific cataclysms forcibly conclude a long period of primitive harmony and precipitate our "fall" into history? Most scholars during the past century-and-a-half have regarded these questions as settled once and for all. ...

... suggestion is that the high oxygen levels, combined with the higher temperatures thought to have prevailed then, would have led to world wide conflagrations. Frozen seals New Scientist 15.1 .94, p. 49 Two perfectly preserved frozen seals have been found - 250 kilometres from the coast in Antarctica and at an altitude of 1300 metres! EVOLUTION Catastrophic computer evolution New Scientist 12.3 .94, pp. 36-39 Chaos theory applied to computer models indicates that life will automatically organise into critical states and catastrophic extinctions are a natural part of evolution. It also indicates that there will be large scale mutation in order to achieve maximum adaptation at these catastrophe, or punctuation, points ...

... once have been arrivals from space.." Fred Hoyle[2 ] In the preface to the paperback edition of his controversial best selling work of cosmology, Worlds in Collision[1 ], Immanuel Velikovsky, reviewing the reaction to the first appearance of his theories in 1950, had cause to refer to a British astronomer's discussion of the evolution of scientific knowledge in the following terms: In 1950 it was generally assumed that the fundamentals of science were known and that only decimals were left to fill in. In the same year a cosmologist, certainly not of a conservative bent of mind, Fred Hoyle, wrote in the conclusion of his book, The Nature of the Universe ...

... these tablets the movements of Ninsianna (generally thought to be the planet Venus) are recorded over a 21 year period. It has long been recognised that the observations don't provide a terribly good fit with retrocalculations of the orbit of Venus. Catastrophists have argued that the data indicate an erratic orbit for Venus (Rose & Vaughan) or an evolution in the Earth's spin rate (Reade). In 1972 Weir also advocated a catastrophist solution, namely that there had been an alteration in the orbit of Venus since Ammisaduqa's time caused by a large body passing through the inner Solar System. This idea was obviously compatible with the Clube & Napier thesis. Another idea he entertained (Weir ...
