71. Perilous Planet Earth [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... Earth from asteroids and comets within an historical context, looking at the evidence for past events within the geological and historical records. The book looks at the way in which prevailing views about modes of global change have changed dramatically over the years. It also considers the way in which catastrophic events are now seen to have influenced the course of evolution in the distant past, as well as the rise and fall of civilisations in more recent times. Professor Palmer argues that the better we understand our past, the greater the likelihood that we will be able to take appropriate action to preserve our civilisation for the future. Written in an engaging style that avoids jargon, the book will ...
72. The Celestial Ship of North Vol II [Books]
... of materialism that let down the Light. The planet Venus was named after the Great Mother Typhon, Mother-Goddess of the Great Bear, which mythically represented the one, original and initial birthplace in heaven of all motion, time and creation, with many copies to be found below on earth. In the beginning of each new cycle of human evolution, according to the need of the age, a quickening or spiritual rebirth occurs, coincident with and acting through the prominence of the Zodiacal Cross which is evident at this time. This has been proven from the beginning, when humanity was in its childhood. Astrology is the basis of all things. Originally it was pure religion, ...
73. The Geological Record And Changing Forms Of Life. Ch.15 Cataclysmic Evolution (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... of species suddenly appear in certain formations, has been urged by several palaeontologists-for instance, by Agassiz, Pictet, and Sedgwick-as a fatal objection to the belief in the transmutation of species. If numerous species, belonging to the same genera or families, have really started into life at once, the fact would be fatal to the theory of evolution through natural selection. For the development by this means of a group of forms, all of which are descended from some one progenitor, must have been an extremely slow progress; and the progenitors must have lived long before their modified descendants." Darwin explained this observation, too, by the incompleteness of the geological record, which ...
74. The Molecular Revolution [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1988 No 1 (May 1988) Home | Issue Contents The Molecular Revolution by Trevor Palmer The last few years have seen considerable changes in our understanding of human evolution, as acknowledged by the Yale palaeoanthropologist, David Pilbeam, in an article in Scientific American [1 ]. In particular, it seems that the hominid line split off to form a separate strand of the hominoid line much later than previously realised. Hominoids include all existing humans and apes, together with their ape-like ancestors; the term hominid is restricted to hominoids who walk (or walked) erect, i.e . those of the genera Australopithecus or Homo, of ...

The history of all groups of animals and plants is characterized by constant changes, progressive or retrogressive. (b ) That, in animal life, there ...
76. On the Disproportion between Geological Time and Historical Time. Part Two - of Earth, Fire and Water [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Chronology & Catastrophism Review (1994) "Proceedings of the 1993 Cambridge Conference" Home | Issue Contents On the Disproportion between Geological Time and Historical Time. Part Two - of Earth, Fire and Water Steven J. Robinson Only two things underlie the belief that the Earth is some four and a half billion years old: the theory of evolution, which absolutely requires vast ages, and radiometric dating, which deduces such ages from rates of radioactive decay. But the theory of evolution is a belief without evidence. It does not itself constitute evidence for vast ages; it presupposes them. Thus everything depends on radiometric dating; and radiometric dating, in turn, is only as ...
77. The Nature and Origin of Comets and the Evolution of Celestial Bodies (Part III) [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. X No. 2 (Winter 1985) Home | Issue Contents The Nature and Origin of Comets and the Evolution of Celestial Bodies (Part III)J. M. McCanney Copyright (c ) 1981 & 1984 by J. M. McCanney PREFACE TO PART III Parts I and II of this paper (KRONOS IX:1 , Fall 1983 & KRONOS IX:3 , Summer 1984) introduced new concepts describing cometary behavior and solar system evolution. A number of basic theoretical results followed from the realization that there is an excess current of positive charge in the solar wind which emanates from the Sun. These included: 1) the formation of ...
78. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... bodies as "circles of fire", "compressed wool of fire", "red-hot masses of stone or metal" and "petals of fire". These quotes are from pre-Socratic Greek philosophers, and Mrs Haight wonders: "what other silent testimony archaic Greek vases might hold for the theories of Dr Velikovsky ". Indeed! CATASTROPHIST EVOLUTION, A MARXIST PHILOSOPHY?We reported (WORKSHOP 3:2 , p.20) on Dr Beverly Halstead's objection to the British Museum of Natural History staging exhibitions on evolution along non-conventional, anti-Darwinist lines. Recently this same person has managed to get himself a lot of publicity, fortunately not all of it favourable. NATURE, 20 ...

James Editor's Note: This article originally appeared in the SIS Review, Vol . IV, No. 1 under the title "Darwinian Man". It is reprinted here by the permission of the author. - LMG Stephen Jay Gould, Professor of palaeontology and evolutionary biology at Harvard University, has already established himself as a popular science writer through a regular column in Natural History, and is now reaching a much wider audience in Britain in the pages of the New Scientist.

80. Wonderful Life [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... collection of invertebrates from the dawn of multicellular life, the equally exciting story of the personalities involved with them and a philosophical treatise on the nature of life. It presents a cautionary tale about the workings of modern science and the vagaries of even the greatest minds and through it all shines Gould's wonderful ability to enthuse others with his views of evolution - views which will be eminently appreciated by catastrophists. At the time of Walcott's discovery of the fossils conventional views of evolution dictated that life had proceeded gradually up a tree of ever increasing complexity from the simplest unicellular organism to the ultimate creature, Homo sapiens. Yet the first appearance of multicellular animals 570 million years ago is designated the ...
