101. Scientific Evidence for A Major World Catastrophe About 11,500 Years Ago: A Preliminary Selection [Journals] [SIS Review]
... before us. The subject, of course, is complex. Accordingly the relevant fields of data have been broken down into separate categories which, although really all interrelated, are also capable of standing on their own as genuinely distinct avenues of enquiry. In the order presented today, they are: The Drift' Erratic boulders Crustal dislocation Premature extinction Unnatural congregations Fast Blitzschnell' The Metal Factor Manganese nodules All the material discussed concerns an event which, on the basis of an average of over nine hundred radiocarbon dates, occurred approximately 11,500 years ago. It also indicates that the Ice Age, so beloved of orthodoxy, almost certainly never existed, or did so only as ...
102. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 1995, pp. 38-43 Most stars the age of our Sun apparently have a stellar companion although astronomers still cannot explain how these binary systems form. This has led to theories about our missing partner, such as the Nemesis star, supposed to orbit every 30 Myrs, displacing showers of comets into the inner Solar system and causing periodic mass extinctions. However there is still no evidence for our companion: Jupiter is supposed to be too small by a factor of ten. Our only hope is apparently a brown dwarf star, so difficult to detect that so far none have been found. Planets far .. .. .Washington Post 20.4 .96 and 22. ...
103. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... that it is leaking away 5 times faster than it returns, so eventually Earth will dry up. However, others point out that different theories indicate that Earth also gains water through asteroid collisions. D. Deming of the University of Oklahoma, even suggests that extra-terrestrial influxes of not only water but also carbon, could have influenced evolution and extinctions. Atmospheric Composition New Scientist 17.6 .00, p. 19, 11.3 .00, p. 23, 16.9 .00, p. 10 In the early days of the Earth, the Sun is supposed to have been cooler than it is now and there was not sufficient carbon dioxide to keep ...
... 27 The ancient history of the globe, which is the ultimate object of all these researches, is also of itself one of the most curious subjects that can engage the attention of enlightened men ; and if they take any interest in examining, in the infancy of our species, the almost obliterated traces of so many nations that have become extinct, they will doubtless take a similar interest in collecting, amidst the darkness which covers the infancy of the globe, the traces of those revolutions which took place anterior to the existence of all nations. We admire the power by which the human mind has measured the motions of globes which nature seemed to have concealed for ever from our ...
105. Wonderful Life [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... even greater. Gould's theories of punctuated equilibrium are reinforced by these studies. He describes the necessity to turn the conventional evolutionary tree of life on its head, for the history of life appears to have lost many of its early types along the way. This pattern occurs over and over again in the course of evolution; after each mass extinction the initial explosion of new replacement types, as with the early mammals after the demise of the dinosaurs, shows a remarkable diversity of forms, few of which survive the earliest stages. Although the actual number of species continues to increase until the next mass extinction, these are but variations upon a relative few of the original themes. ...

107. Briefings [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Forshufvud, Eric Crew and Gunnar Heinsohn. - R.M .L . Science Rules The word "Velikovskian" has at last passed into the language, and Velikovskian listeners to BBC's Radio 3 were promised something of a treat when the Radio Times write-up of the "Scientifically Speaking" programme for 5th March likened the Alvarez theory of the extinction of the dinosaurs (see "Extinguishing Marks", SISR IV:I , p. 5) to "some Velikovskian catastrophe". Unfortunately, usage of the word, like that of "aggravate", "chronic" et al., is a little lax, and a far from promising start was made in the programme ...
... years have passed by without signs of activity in this highly charged volcanic mountain. Its lavas have consisted for long of leucitic basalt, but the conglomerate strata of Somma indicates formerly a felspathose or trachytic composition, so a change has occurred and the question may be asked, Whence came these subsequent basaltic lavas? Whence this leucitic basalt? The extinct volcanoes of the Campi Phlegraei have almost uniformly produced trachytic lavas. We have, therefore to postulate in the case of Vesuvius a new volcano superimposed on the crater of an older mass which ejects lava in a higher state of incandescence than formerly, and as it grows older shows greater strength than before. 50. Before leaving the neighbourhood ...

110. A Comprehensive Theory on Aging, Gigantism and Longevity [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... . Abatement of Gigantism We move now to our second and lesser known observation with respect to the paleontological record; it is a related but far more alluring factor. One finds in the fossil record many sequences of ever smaller sub-giant species in ever more recent sites. 10There are several patterns to this size abatement, in some cases leading to extinction. Size reduction occurs on every continent of the world, possibly excepting Antarctica, as well as on several major islands such as Japan, Madagascar, and New Zealand, as well as the Caribbean Antilles.11 The phenomenon of abatement of gigantism clearly happened simultaneously around the globe in the late Pleistocene, that is, at the end ...
