111. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... it clear that the Deluge drownings were caused by forty days and nights of rainstorms. Once more this favours the Cenozoic era and not the Mesozoic or Dinosaurian era. A possible new sequence of the geological ages might be: Cenozoic Holocene - Neolithic, Bronze, Iron Pleistocene, Tertiary - Noachian Deluge - many giant forms of today's mammals become extinct (cf. Genesis 6:4 ) Palaeocene - period of change between dinosaurs and mammals Mesozoic, Palaeozoic - Land and sea creatures of the Dinosaurian era. They are contemporary and not separated by hundreds of millions of years as under the conventional scheme. Mostly destroyed by sea wave invasions caused by comet strikes in the oceans. Terry ...
112. Poleshifts, Catastrophes, And Myths [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... not only to poleshifts, but also to sudden plate tectonic motions. The concept that Velikovsky posed in 1950, that the solution for the cause of the Ice Age is of an extraterrestrial catastrophic nature, is just the direction that the scientific community is belatedly groping toward. The various disciplines have arrived at a watershed with respect to the Pleistocene extinction, and scientists involved in this research are beginning to wonder if some global or near global catastrophe has occurred. For example, Haynes wonders: "The question... [of the Pleistocene extinction] is this: Were they killed off or did they die off? It is tempting to explain mass extinctions by finding unique and ...
... Greenland. The geological formation of the North American land surfaces with their schists, clays, and old red sandstone correspond (says Suess) with the opposing regions of the old world. The fauna and flora Clearly suggest a prior contact. The mammoth, musk-ox, elk, the red deer, and many other species of mammals are now extinct in America or are found only in one continent, but were once common to both. What violent occurrence caused the musk-ox and the Irish elk to become extinct in Europe, and the mammoth of both continents, to quote Suess, "the simultaneous disappearance over vast areas of whole communities"? Something happened all of a sudden. ...
... period, and the time immediately preceding and succeeding it, when the tide hills moved round the Earth very slowly. More than a century ago Cuvier taught that successive worldwide revolutions destroyed all life, and were followed by repeated new creations. The theory was eventually given up because Cuvier's supposed cataclysms remained purely hypothetical and because he stipulated the complete extinction of all life and the creation of an entirely new series of living beings in every geological age, which was felt to be impossible and proved to be incorrect. Hoerbiger's Theory now shows up the nature and causation of these successive cataclysms, and also shows that though truly Earth-spanning they were, though worldwide, by no means universal. ...
115. In Alaska. Ch.1 In the North (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... , often several miles in length and sometimes as much as 140 feet in depth, are now being sluiced out along stream valleys tributary to the Tanana in the Fairbanks District. In order to reach gold-bearing gravel beds an over-burden of frozen silt or muck' is removed with hydraulic giants. This muck' contains enormous numbers of frozen bones of extinct animals such as the mammoth, mastodon, super-bison and horse."2 These animals perished in rather recent times; present estimates place their extinction at the end of the Ice Age or in early post-glacial times. The soil of Alaska covered their bodies together with those of animals of species still surviving. Under what conditions did this great ...
116. Cosmic Dust May Cause Climate Catastrophes [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... Climate Catastrophes 8 May 1998 From Andrew Yee <email@example.com> University of Florida Sources: Stanley Dermott, (352) 392-2052; Stephen Kortenkamp, (202) 686-4370 ext. 4440 Writer: Kristen Vecellio, firstname.lastname@example.org May 7, 1998 INTERPLANETARY DUST MAY CAUSE CLIMATE CHANGE, GRADUAL EXTINCTION GAINESVILLE- Space dust in the earth's atmosphere and changes in the planet's orbit may have started the gradual extinction of dinosaurs and other life thousands of years before a massive asteroid collision dealt the final blow, according to research from the University of Florida and the Carnegie Institution of Washington. The dust build-up, which rises and falls on about ...
117. Arctic Muck [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 4 No 1 (1998) Home | Issue Contents Arctic Muck Charles Ginenthal The muck deposits of Alaska and Siberia are made up of gravel, soil, clay, tiny particles of many minerals, and organic matter made up of grasses, mosses, trees and vast numbers of extinct and extant animal bones.120 It appears quite clearly to be a flood sediment because it lies directly over gravel beds. That is, the heaviest materials tend to lie at the bottom of the muck beds and the lighter ones tend to lie above it. Henry Howorth long ago understood that the nature of this ring of material encircling the Arctic Ocean was indicative of ...
118. On Velikovsky And Darwin [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. VII No. 4 (Summer 1982) "Evolution, Extinction, and Catastrophism" Home | Issue Contents On Velikovsky And Darwin Lynn E. Rose The so-called "Darwinian Revolution" stands in sharp contrast to, and was of an entirely different character from, the Brunian Revolution of the sixteenth century. It is well known how Darwin sailed with the Beagle and patiently collected facts from the Galapagos Islands and elsewhere around the world. Many people take it for granted that these actual observations are the basis for his theory of gradual evolution by natural selection. Darwin did make many observations, but his theory was chosen in defiance of observational data, not ...
119. Showers of Glass [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Estimates for the formation of the australite field based on 14C dating range from 16,000 to as recently as 5000 years before the present. Some advances seem to be happening in the study of tektites - the small, glassy, meteoritic allies of catastrophism which are often found in the same geological horizons as evidence for geomagnetic reversals, faunal extinctions, volcanic maxima and sea-level changes. An excellent summary of the recent trends was presented by Peter J. Smith in "The origin of tektites - settled at last?" Nature vol. 300, 18 Nov. 1982. Smith, editor of Open Earth, writes in a clear and concise way on a controversial and difficult subject ...
120. "Nemesis" -- A New Idea as Old as the Bible? [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History VII:1 (Feb 1985) Home | Issue Contents "Nemesis"- A New Idea as Old as the Bible?Zecharia Sitchin The field of catastrophism has been exposed, since early 1984, to the grandest theories of all: the suggestion that periodic global extinctions could be triggered by a distant celestial object that disrupts the Solar System once every 26 million years or so. Though the beginnings of the idea can be found in other and earlier publications, the unprecedented impetus to the scholarly debate- still raging- was a series of studies in the British scientific weekly, Nature, and especially its Vol. 308 (issue of April ...
