... second place, if all the planets including the Earth started together in the fiery state, all must follow this line of uniformity. If any one of them has diverged from this method of development, it is following up a series of accidental conditions. Now it can hardly be possible that a world could take up a line of chance evolution. It can hardly be possible that it could follow a course of worldgrowth at variance with the universal plan we see all around us, particularly so, if it began according to that plan. We cannot admit the role of accident in a universe of law. When then we turn again to the planets Saturn and Jupiter and see ...

... From: Aeon I:1 (Jan 1988) Home | Issue Contents Solar System Studies Fred Hall INTRODUCTION Prior to this century arguments raged over the implications of the geological record and the subject of evolution of life forms on Earth. Some argued that Earth had been fundamentally altered by the Universal Deluge and that the biblical record should be taken literally. Others argued that uniformitarian processes and slow evolution by adaptation of species could explain the geological record as we find it. The latter school gained the day and their premises came to be widely taught. A corollary result was a loss of interest in biblical descriptions of catastrophes and a general disregard for tales of other ancient cultures regarding ...

... that the ceiling is a map of the sky. However, by 1932 Pogo interpreted the panels as a calendar and, later, as a diagonal star clock - discounting them as a map of the sky. Pogo based his later interpretations upon a fuller knowledge of Egyptian astronomical motifs in a variety of contexts. Velikovsky never commented upon the evolution of Pogo's thinking which was described by O. Neugebauer and R. A. Parker in Egyptian Astronomical Texts Vol. III (Providence, RI: 1969). At McMaster in 1974, J. W. Warwick reported on his examination of Velikovsky's use of Senmut's ceiling, stating, in part, that "Velikovsky did not write ...

384. A Catastrophic Reading of Western Cosmology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... as we have it in the Newtonianism which has evolved in our culture over the last 250 years. It is at this point that what started as serious astronomy becomes something which is not science any longer, nor even metaphysics, but fantasy or wish-fulfillment, as in the determinist dream of Laplace that every event in the Universe, from galactic evolution to human emotion, can be described and predicted by mathematical equations. This does not mean that valuable cosmology is impossible (as a reasoned induction from reasonable astronomy). Far from it, for the serious study of whether the Universe is infinite or not, eternal or not, evolutionary or not, uniformly structured or not, or ...

The Nov. 3, 1975 issue of Aviation Week & Space Technology even goes so far as to state that the "data and photographs returned from Venera-9 and -10 Soviet Venus lander spacecraft portray a well-lighted rocky surface belonging to a young, evolving planet [and that] Venus is a planet in an early cool-down phase of evolution rather than in a final stage of suffocation in a thickening atmospheric greenhouse" (emphasis added). Soviet optics engineer, Arnold Selivanov, commented that "it was as bright on Venus as it is in Moscow on a cloudy June day" while Mikhail Marov considered Venus' "stony desert [as] documental evidence that in the ...

... the first time, the possibility of an explanation for all of the peculiar features of chondrites. By extension it offers a more plausible mechanism for the creation of asteroids, comets, moons, planets, planetary rings, and companion stars than does the nebular hypothesis. It follows that the history of the Solar System has been one of continual evolution rather than creation, roughly as we see it now, from a nebula 5 billion years ago followed by relative peace since that event. The ubiquitous planetary rings of the gas giants are not explained by the nebular hypothesis. Micrometre sized grains in Jupiter's rings have a lifetime measured in thousands of years [31]. By the core ...

... a similar age. Therefore, it came as a big shock when it was discovered that there were some blue "stragglers" (stars that hadn't "aged properly") in certain clusters. It was said, in awe, that these stars were "rejuvenated stars that glow with the blue light of young stars"! "Stellar evolution" doesn't seem to be working too well in these cases. Another example of "stellar evolution" that is difficult to explain via the H-He fusion reaction is that in recent years, the centers of elliptical galaxies have been found to emit unexpectedly high amounts of blue and ultraviolet light. Elliptical galaxies (and the stars in them) ...

... in relative diameter, but not relative depth) the great chasms of Mathilde. Such craters greatly challenge our understanding of impact processes on asteroids, and on planets in general; evidently, our science must adapt. The study of asteroids is therefore particularly exciting, as small planets provide the fulcrum for the growth of planetology, and for an evolution of geophysics in general. Complex and poorly understood solar system processes - such as impact cratering, accretion and catastrophic disruption, the evolution of volcanic structures, and the triggering of differentiation - may reveal themselves only in a study across the gamut of planets, from the least significant house-sized rock to the most stately terrestrial world. Like clockwork ...
