281. Discussion Comments From the Floor [Journals] [Aeon]
... and where he saw fit. We should emulate his example. He wasn't a saint. He was a man, and brilliant one. He opened the way to a new era for humanity. His work will survive for that reason, and many others besides. STRATIGRAPHY AS HISTORY SPEAKER: CHARLES GINENTHAL Charles Darwin advanced his theory of gradual evolution based on the assumption that the fossil record known at that time, which was negative to his hypothesis, was "imperfect." By "imperfect" Darwin meant that, with time and further exploration, the missing links necessary to his hypothesis would eventually be discovered. The fact of the matter, however, is that for all ...

... of geological ages. The fossilized remains of ancient animals indicate changes in fauna in the course of time; Lyell's measurement of geological periods is based on such changes in the animal kingdom, especially among the shell fauna. He found that there has been in the Quaternary, or the age of man, not more than one twentieth of the evolution that has occurred since the lower Miocene (middle series of Tertiary, the age of mammals). From that point on he traced one complete "cycle of evolution," during which, at his estimate, practically all species that existed at the opening of the cycle were replaced by new species. Thus, if a figure of ...

... , or perhaps in a collision of planets." In October 1975 two Soviet probes landed on the sunlit side of Venus. An article in Aviation Week and Space Technology, "Data Show Venus Young, Evolving Planet," noted that the results "tend to support the idea that Venus is a planet in an early cooldown phase of evolution rather than in a final stage of suffocation in a thickening atmospheric greenhouse." In 1979 spokesmen for the research team of Pioneer Venus, John Hoffman and Thomas Donahue, "stunned" their colleagues by reporting that the Pioneer Venus probes had detected in Venus's atmosphere hundreds of times as much Ar-36 as is found in that of the Earth ...

... later published in collaboration with Sepkoski,(2 ) which appears to have set off a major intellectual earthquake. Raup and Sepkoski correlated the dates of known extinctions of species on Earth and concluded that mass extinctions have taken place with a regular periodicity of 26 million years. The improbability of regular periodicity of any kind being a function of biological evolution itself led them to suspect an extraterrestrial cause. Palaeontologists are not agreed on the role of outside influences on extinctions or the mode and rate of evolution. Some still hold fast to a Darwinian gradualistic model influenced only by slow geological and climatic changes, but there is a growing following for the punctuated equilibrium model of irregular bursts of evolutionary ...
285. Young Velikovsky: From Bergson to Berger [Journals] [Kronos]
... between the method of natural science and the method of intuitive sympathy or inner understanding") and, second, toward the Freudian approach to the study of the unconscious.(14) It is noteworthy that Velikovsky devoted much of his own intellectual effort to precisely those preoccupations. Although many years later Velikovsky would reject Bergson's concept of "creative evolution" along with the alternative concept of Darwinian evolution,(15) his earliest foray into psychological themes was clearly Bergsonian in approach and methodology even while rejecting many of Bergson's specific propositions. We could even claim perhaps that Velikovsky's later work represents a dialectical synthesis between Comtean positivism and its Bergsonian reaction, even as it performs a similar function ...

... exploring the reasons why the ancient Greeks went overseas, founding colonies in the Aegean and Italy, David Rohl also asks the question when they did so. By removing the Dark Age and adopting a low chronology, he is able to solve many current problems and anomalies. Dr Trevor Palmer: The Erratic Descent of Man 14 In studying the evolution of one species there are lessons to be learnt about evolution in general. Here, Dr Palmer concentrates on Man, discovering that although Man has been particularly extensively studied, surprisingly few firm conclusions can be drawn concerning his descent.
