... an extremely humble man. In case the reader (and viewer) forgets this fact there are reminders throughout the book (and the TV program). What disturbs me most about the above quote, however, is not the humility pose, but the error in fact. Space does not permit me to explain at length the theory of evolution through natural selection. Suffice it to say that one mutant dragonfly in a population of quadrillions upon quadrillions could not possibly have altered the evolution of that species from the present lowly insect to a creature with an intelligence that's equal to or greater than man's. If the random mutation that Dr. Sagan is talking about occurred in a dragonfly ...

452. The Original Star of Dawn [Articles]
... arret, that is a hall. What is of interest here is that, according to the "Papyrus of Nu," these halls of the Duat were seven in number which, among other things, explains the plurality of circles associated with Ra's habitation. But, more than that, these seven arrets of the Duat refer to the evolution of the Saturnian band into seven concentric circles, concerning which I have been writing since 1978. The most convincing evidence concerning the interpretation of the Duat as the Saturnian circle of light, however, comes from the hieroglyphic determinative of the name "Duat" itself which is simply depicted as a star surrounded by a circle. And, ...

... occupied within the celestial configuration outlined by Talbott in The Saturn Myth. A wealth of evidence suggests that the planet Mars was once located along the same axis shared by Saturn and the Earth, with a stream of celestial debris flowing between the various planets. (90) While the position of Mars fluctuated during the various phases associated with the evolution of the configuration, it is clear that Mars once became positioned near the top of the pillar (i .e ., between the Earth and Saturn). The visual appearance of the configuration as a whole would have been that of a giant pillar spanning the skies, with Mars forming the terminus of the pillar. Saturn appeared ...

454. Cosmic Winter [Articles]
... describing is, again, rather like the one that Irving Wolfe was describing previously. I would like to follow Irving Wolfe here, and suggest that we are, indeed, approaching the position now when we can reconstruct catastrophic history and demonstrate it as evidence for the controlling influence of one giant comet over the last 20,000 years of evolution. There is nothing very arbitrary about introducing giant comets to do all this. The fact is, that we see them around. The idea that giant comets dominate evolution is very much in keeping now with the discovery, further out in the solar system, of objects like Chiron which are known to come into the inner solar system ...

455. The Cyclic Nature of Ancient Catastrophes [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... recent for most. But every time my analysis is rerun the same conclusion, 25th or 26th century, is reinforced. Uniformitarianism. (a ) Velikovsky rejected this popular notion, his position strident arid strong. (b ) Ron Hatch and myself also reject this notion, and we do so equally strongly and perhaps with equal stridence. Evolution. (a ) Velikovsky supported the general theory of evolution if the necessary mutations occurred through catastrophes rather than through uniformitarian timing. Thus in his view catastrophism is a means or mechanism for species evolution. (b ) Patten and Hatch both favor the concept of sudden creation involving excellence in detail and design for both flora and fauna. ...

... have any significance, least of all in relation to a recent giant comet. On the other hand, we a have a picture in which the dominant control over impacts disturbing the Earth is exercised by comets and their debris, and in which there is a basis for supposing that the Taurids have special significance, chiefly in relation to the evolution of a recent giant comet. Celestial signatures The most obvious key to our catastrophic environment- apart from the unfortunate occurrence of a catastrophe- is the disintegrating very large comet responsible for the Taurids and its remnant which is likely, on the evidence now available, to be still librating about the mean motion resonance at the core of the ...

... It is said in the Loo She (by Lo Mi or Lo Pe of the Sung dynasty, A.D . 960 to 1126) that when the Great First Principle (Tai Ki) had given birth to the two Primary Forms (Yin and Yang) and these had produced the four secondary figures, the latter underwent transformations and evolutions, whence the natural objects depending from their respective influences came abundantly into being. The first who came forth to rule the world was named P'an Ku, and he was called the Undeveloped and Unenlightened, Hwen-tun-Shi.31 The early historians, including Sze-ma Ts'ien (B .C . 130?), did not mention Fan Ku, ...

458. Science and Novelty [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the result that science now enjoys a certain measure of freedom. But freedom, even if it were total, would only represent the external and formal basis of what is really needed: an open mind. That is, a basic disposition to understand the nature of science and scholarship and how they function and develop, how in their unceasing evolution they create ever-new specialisations to provide the most favourable and fertile climate for progress. Instead, a dull, narrow-minded atmosphere prevails almost everywhere. The spirit of this "compartmentalisation" seems to hang menacingly, like the hydra with its thousands of ever-regrowing heads, across the path of science, scholarship and human culture.

... humanities and the life sciences. Moreover, it embraces several highly distinctive subdisciplines, of which the most widely recognized in America are: ethnology, prehistoric archeology, human biology, and linguistics. Nonetheless, broad as anthropology is, I soon found it too narrow to deal adequately with the subject of the role of global catastrophes in shaping the evolution of our planet, our forebears, and ourselves. For this reason, I have coined the term "polymathics" to designate the investigative field proper to polymaths, or simultaneous practitioners of a plurality of related disciplines. And, while I still have a relatively proprietary relationship to this neologism, I should like to take advantage of that ...

... conference is that of the far-famed caduceus. Another is the so-called "winged disk" and its many variants in the ancient world. Since these highly unusual forms answer to nothing in nature as we know it today, they must be included among the acid tests of the model. But for now I must simply state the punchline- THE VIOLENT EVOLUTION OF THE PLANETARY CONFIGURATION, RECORDED ON PAPYRUS, CLAY, AND STONE, FINDS DIRECT VERIFICATION IN THE EVOLUTION OF PLASMA DISCHARGE CONFIGURATIONS IN THE LABORATORY. THE MYTHICAL "CHAIN OF ARROWS" This surprising picture emerged only in the past year. In my earlier reconstruction, I had followed the connections between an undulating, upward-spiraling, serpentine form ...
