31. Darwin's Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:4 (July 1999) Home | Issue Contents Darwin's Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution by Michael J. Behe (The Free Press, New York, 1996) Reviewed by Frederic Jueneman There have been innumerable problems with the Darwinian evolution scenario over the past century and a half- give or take a few years- dilemmas which are usually swept aside by the pedagogues and other true believers who champion his cause. Charles Darwin himself recognized these difficulties, but anticipated that further proofs would be forthcoming as more information became available. Hope springs eternal. In more recent years we've been entertained by many persuasively prolific and resourceful writers, such as ...
32. Focus [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 3 No 4 (Apr 1981) Home | Issue Contents Focus EVOLUTION - FACT OR THEORY?When we reported Dr Beverly Halstead's attack on the British Museum over its non-Darwinian evolutionary exhibits (WORKSHOP 3:2 p.20), we could have had little idea of the storm to follow. The consequences of his further outbursts, equating Marxism with revolutions in evolution (see WORKSHOP 3:3 p.10-11), were perhaps more predictable. There appeared in NATURE a series of letters from serious academics refuting his allegations (NATURE 4/12/80 p.430; 1-8/1 /81 p.8 & 105; 19 ...
33. Racial Memory and Instinct: The Case of the Honeyguide [Journals] [Aeon]
... interloper, having replaced the ratel- Mellivora capensis- the latter being a badger-like animal known to serve as juggernaut to the honeyguide (7 ) ). Long considered the stuff of legend, the now well-documented partnership pertaining between the greater honeyguide and Boran nomads presents naturalists with a vexing problem: How is it possible to explain the development and evolution of this particular symbiotic relationship? Certainly it seems highly unlikely that an ancestral honeyguide suddenly appeared one day with a new mutation in its genome which compelled it to seek out a friendly benefactor resilient enough to conquer a colony of angry bees. Fortuitous mutations of this sort- frequently invoked in conventional interpretations with regard to the origin of structural ...
34. Nemesis for Evolutionary Gradualism? [Books]

35. Catastrophism And Evolution. Ch.15 Cataclysmic Evolution (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... From "Earth in Upheaval" © 1955 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Catastrophism And Evolution THE THEORY OF EVOLUTION dates back to the age of classic Greece, one of its proponents having been Anaximander, and from time to time philosophers have offered the evolutionary explanation of the origin of the multiple forms of life on earth, as opposed to the theory of special creation or the permanency of living forms from the day of Creation. Lamarck (1744 -1829) thought that acquired characteristics were transmissible by heredity and thus might lead to the appearance of new forms of life. In 1840, the year that Agassiz's Ice Age theory was published, an anonymously printed work ...
36. The Electro-gravitic Theory Of Cosmology [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 4 No 3 (1999) Home | Issue Contents The Electro-gravitic Theory Of Cosmology Charles Ginenthal The Origin And Evolution Of Galaxies The following theory of cosmology was written long ago and was withheld from publication in order to have the original theory of celestial motion tested in space, so that the foundation of the theory's mechanism could be validated. Since that test appears to have little chance of ever being conducted, the cosmological theory derived from the motion theory will now be presented with updated material. The original papers on the theory of celestial motion were presented in two journals, AEON and The Velikovskian.62 The present theory is derived directly from the motion ...

38. On Ecological Niches in Evolution [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1990 No 2 (Dec 1990) Home | Issue Contents FORUM On Ecological Niches in Evolution Jill Abery comments: I quite understand David Salkeld's perplexity over Trevor Palmer's views. Trevor appears to be agreeing with me that natural selection during periods of stasis acts to conserve species and that periods of rapid evolutionary change occur only when the restraint of natural selection is lifted, as after catastrophic extinctions. How, then, can he say that it is unnecessary to postulate different evolutionary mechanisms during the different phases? I was forced to conclude that natural selection cannot be the force behind evolution and that, in fact, evolution does not occur during stasis ...
39. The Evolutionist-Creationist Battle: A Threat to Catastrophist Evolution (Focus) [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 4 No 4 (Mar 1982) Home | Issue Contents Focus The Evolutionist-Creationist Battle: A Threat to Catastrophist Evolution Jill Abery The Creation Scientists have once again been routed by Establishment Science fighting on an unfairly mined battlefield. Before we sympathize too eagerly with fellow victims of establishment tactics, let it be noted that the widely publicized verbal flood of the Evolutionist v. Creationist battle threatens to engulf the cause of catastrophic evolution. On 5.1 .82 Judge Overton ruled against the Arkansas State Law 590, which was to ensure "creation science" an equal time with "evolution science" in the state's schools, on the grounds that it violated ...
40. On the Disproportion between Geological Time and Historical Time Part One - Of Apes and Men [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Book of Genesis. It is monotheistic, focused on God and man, objective in the narration of events, specific in the mention of people and places, and connects the present to the very beginning of time by means of a genealogical ladder. The purest (and the most recent) form of the philosophical model is the theory of evolution. It is atheistic, focused on animals and the Earth, necessarily speculative with regard to how and where events unfolded, and connects the present to the very beginning by means of a geological ladder. Explicitly repudiating the Genesis explanation, the scientific model is a return to, and final development of, the philosophical model laid down by ...
