51. Natural Evolution And Revolution. Ch.2 To Know And Not To Know (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... From "Mankind in Amnesia" © 1982 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Natural Evolution And Revolution Darwin's On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection appeared in November of 1859 and was an immediate success; on the day of publication, the whole edition of 1,250 copies was sold out. In books on the history of science, and more specifically in books on Darwin, one regularly reads of the bitter opposition the book provoked. This statement needs qualification. It is true that the great names in science of the time like Louis Agassiz, the ichthyologist, the botanist Asa Gray and others expressed upon reflection great reservations at Darwin's views, ...

53. The Dawnseekers: the First History of American Paleontology by Robert West Howard [Journals] [Kronos]
... all its complexity and changeability. Human inquiry continues to alter our view of man, life, and planetary history. There is always a need to rethink old ideas rigorously, consider the implications of new facts, and modify established conceptual frameworks. In the last century, this was demonstrated in the academic and social approach to the theory of evolution in general, and the validity of the geological and paleontological records in particular. In this century, one is now asked to rethink the traditional interpretation of the dinosaurs in light of a new critical analysis of the fossil evidence and its implications. As such, there is no room for blind closure or dogmatism in science. Since naturalists ...
54. Phillip E. Johnson, "Darwin on Trial" [Journals] [Aeon]
... Here is another tightly written volume on what appears to be a continuing contemporary series of books indulging in the well-deserved bashing of Darwinian "theology" in its various guises. But, not since Norman Macbeth's Darwin Retried (1971) have we been exposed to the finely structured legal views of the verbal arguments surrounding what Johnson terms "fully naturalistic evolution, involving chance mechanisms guided by natural selection." Johnson himself has taught law at UC Berkeley for the past 20 years, and inter alia had taken up the study of Darwinism when he encountered books and legal briefs defending the theory of evolution and found them habitually dogmatic and substantively unconvincing. In his dedication he devotes the book " ...
55. Focus [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 5 No 1 (1982) Home | Issue Contents Focus Darwin's Centenary - A "New Scientist" Affirmation In celebration of Charles Darwin's death on 19.4 .1882 the New Scientist devoted a large part of their 15.4 .82 edition to articles on the subject of evolution. It would seem that everyone wants to write about evolution these days and the succeeding weeks saw New Scientist publish a flurry of articles on the subject. Was this really just a centenary celebration or was it symptomatic of a deeper unrest? The editorial comment (15.4 .82, p. 122) made the excellent observation: "Unfortunately, the ...

57. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1994 (Vol XVI) (Oct 1995) Home | Issue Contents Forum Part One Natural Selection and Evolution the challenge, set by David Salkeld Trevor Palmer's Catastrophism, Neo-Catastrophism and Evolution (henceforward CNE) reviews a vast range of literature. Palmer demonstrates that there has been a trend away from Darwin's evolutionary hypothesis towards the actual evidence, leading to widespread (but as yet uncoordinated and undirected) doubts regarding the validity of many aspects of gradualistic evolution. However, natural selection rather than gradualism is the true hallmark of Darwinism. After he had proposed variation by adaptation as the means by which species can attain an ever-widening spread of characteristics, ...
58. Glaciations, Biologic Crises and Supernovae [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... From: Catastrophist Geology Year 2 No. 2 (Dec 1977) Home | Issue Contents The Russian version of this paper has appeared in Bull. MOIP, sec. geologie, 1977/1 : 1-32. Glaciations, Biologic Crises and Supernovae L. J. Salop All-Union Geological Research Institute, Leningrad, USSR Summary and Introduction The organic evolution of our planet during the Phanerozoic is characterised by sudden mass extinctions of various groups acompanied or followed by the sudden proliferation of forms belonging to the same or to other groups. During the Precambrian and at the Precambrian-Cambrian bundary discontinuities are distinguished by the sudden expansion of many forms, not preceded by extinctions. Both types of crisis must be ...

60. Evolution Symposium at Southwestern University [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1990 No 2 (Dec 1990) Home | Issue Contents HORIZONS Evolution Symposium at Southwestern University Punctuated Evolution: the Slender Thread of Life' was the title of this year's two day Brown Symposium given by Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, 19-20th February 1990. The symposium is an annual event, open free to the public, which features a different discipline each year at this well endowed Methodist college. I wanted to attend not only because the subject would be concerned with extraterrestrial events but more so in order to hear the three well known guest speakers: - Stephen Jay Gould, who is known to SIS members for his article Velikovsky ...
