... in a more general context in which it is necessary to go right back to the origins of myths to understand the events of the 1st and 2nd millennium BC. He is working on the implications of the Genesis myth and was there to present us with two excerpts from his work Unravelling Genesis'. The first excerpt, concerning theories of evolution and in particular the origins of man, was read out to the audience and elicited a vigorous response from those perhaps a little stunned by some revolutionary new ideas. Zysman makes absolutely no compromise with uniformitarianism in his offering of new biological and geological theses. He contends that Earth's crust is not in any way a result of recycling old ...

... eighth and the beginning of the seventh century before the present era, twenty-six centuries ago. Accordingly, this volume consists of two parts, preceded by a prologue. Harmony or stability in the celestial and terrestrial spheres is the point of departure of the present-day concept of the world as expressed in the celestial mechanics of Newton and the theory of evolution of Darwin. If these two men of science are sacrosanct, this book is a heresy. However, modern physics, of atoms and of the quantum theory, describes dramatic changes in the microcosm- the atom- the prototype of the solar system; a theory, then, that envisages not dissimilar events in the macrocosm- the ...

The eldest animals would be given double portions of grain and therefore be more likely to eat a toxic amount. Hey Presto! the story of the plagues is solved - yet again.

... - such anomalies carry no explanation in the astronomy taught in the colleges. Disquieting news arrives in an incessant stream from arctic regions, from the bottom of the oceans, and from archaeological sites around the world, and in disturbing data from radiocarbon-dating laboratories, from paleomagnetic studies, from paleontological finds. It is already sensed that the theory of evolution built on the Malthusian principle of competition for means of livelihood producing new characteristics in species- the only mechanism offered for the evolutionary process- is divorced from the truth. The coming of entirely new forms of life is just a few decades away, practically around the corner, with all the agents- radioactive, chemical and thermal- ...

... of the cataclysm is the third step in my reconstruction. The first step is to show that within human memory global catastrophes shook this world of ours and the second step is to establish that the cause of these catastrophes was extraterrestrial. With these two points proved, many concepts of modern scholarship and science, such as the theory of peaceful evolution, are challenged. The participation of a planet in these disturbances puts into question, as we shall see, some notions accepted in celestial mechanics. After a number of months I became aware that William Whiston, Newton's successor at Trinity College in Cambridge, had advanced a theory of a comet's colliding with the earth. According to him ...

[he] finds that the story of catastrophic events of global character "is supported by a wealth of quotations" (thus leaving the theory of evolution to meet the challenge), but opposes the thesis that celestial bodies (planets or comets) could have been the cause. I proceeded, with reference to the year-747: "To straighten things out, I should prefer to have in the quoted sentence, in conformity with my book, Isaiah instead of Joshua, and ...

... movements (as taught by Plato, Aristotle, Ptolemy) and he rejected the theory of elliptical orbits advanced by Kepler. Varying degrees of orthodoxy prevent scientists from accepting the "logical" consequences of their own discoveries, e.g ., Planck and the Einstein theory of photons, Dalton and Avogadro's hypothesis, Baer and the theory of evolution. Two general conclusions may be noted. (1 ) It is difficult to tell at any given time whether or not any given unorthodoxy actually may contain seeds for further scientific progress. One of the reasons for rejecting Velikovsky is that his ideas imply a revision of much of orthodox physical theory; yet it is difficult to predict just ...

Widespread extinctions in America occurred "virtually within the last few thousand years."(2 ) I gave the history of the theory of catastrophism versus the theory of gradualism and evolution. The Agassiz theory of the ice ages was originally also a catastrophist theory. Agassiz spoke of the sudden arrival of the ice cover seizing the mammoths in Siberia. The north Siberian islands consist of trunks of uprooted trees and bones of mammoths, rhinoceroses, horses, and buffaloes- when today only lichen and moss show themselves for two months ...

We started at opposite points; the area of disagreement, as reflected in our correspondence, grew ever smaller, and though at his death (our last meeting was nine days before his passing) there remained clearly denned points of disagreement, his stand then demonstrated the evolution of his opinion in the space of eighteen months." This carefully worded statement, upon close analysis, cleverly says nothing definite or significant- but it creates an impression upon the casual reader. Brown omitted to quote the middle of the passage and supplanted it with ellipses- namely: He [Einstein] read several of my manuscripts and supplied ...
