181. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1998:1 (Sep 1998) Home | Issue Contents Monitor INSIDE SCIENCE Political science New Scientist 4.10.97, p. 49 A reader took the magazine to task for writing that the impact theory of species extinction was invented in the 1980s by Alvarez. He brought their attention to the works of Velikovsky and the latter's acknowledgement of Cuvier, the French catastrophist, and pointed out that the history of cosmic collision theory showed that accepted' science was very much influenced by the political environment of its day. Cuvier lived at the time of the French revolution but revolutionary ideas were seen as a political threat by the British, ...

... in the evidence and views with those to be found in Earth in Upheaval' by Immanuel Velikovsky. Kloosterman, himself, in his Apophoreta' on the last page of the issue acknowledges that Velikovsky in his above work is one of those who proposed excessive radiation in catastrophic circumstances to account for sudden, massive, biological new species and likewise extinctions and enquires whether any study has been made to determine if abnormally high radioactivity in fossil bones correlates with the major faunal extinctions in Earth History. This particular topic forms the subject of an article by L. J. Salop in which is developed the themes previously adumbrated by other authors, that geological discontinuities and biological revolutions correlate and are ...

... ship Vega in 1878, Nils Adolf Erik Nordenskjöld, the first to traverse this northern seaway from one end to the other, travelled for weeks along the coast from Novaya Zemlya to Cape Shelagskoi (170o 30' East) on the eastern extremity of Siberia without seeing a single human being on the shore. Fossil tusks of the mammoth -an extinct elephant- were found in northern Siberia and brought southward to markets at a very early time, possibly in the days of Pliny in the first century of the present era. The Chinese excelled in working delicate designs in the ivory, much of which they obtained from the north. And from the days of the conquest of Siberia ( ...

... a century or more, it has seemed as defunct as any theory could be. Even in recent books on evolution, authors usually either ignore catastrophism altogether (as in G. Ledyard Stebbins' Darwin to DNA, Molecules to Humanity [117]), or dismiss it in a few lines. Steven Stanley, for instance, in Extinction, published in 1987 [95], called catastrophism an `outmoded belief' that `dominated geological thinking during the eighteenth century'. However, in spite of that, there is every reason to think that catastrophism, or at least something called neocatastrophism, is now making a very real contribution to geology and evolutionary theory [60 ...

... level, which show elevated shorelines of Pleistocene age. The University of California's expedition of 1947 [to] 1948 found the bones of whales along with those of present-day mammals in these old lake beds."(8 ) Presently, whales are not found in landlocked inland lakes in Africa. If Zeuglodons lived 50 million years ago and became extinct soon thereafter, they would never be found in strata containing present-day mammals. The implication is that Zeuglodon whales were deposited into these lakes, along with mammals, by an enormous flood. The trapped whales died alongside the mammals that were swept into the salt lakes with them. NORTH AMERICA Sir Henry H. Horworth presented evidence that a ...

... Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 2005:1 (February 2005) Home | Issue Contents Crustal Distortion in the Holocene Phillip Clapham The talk at the 2004 AGM by the geologist Han Kloosterman [1 ] pinpointed a catastrophe at the boundary of the Pleistocene and the Holocene periods. This boundary is a kind of shut-off as it marks a phase of mass extinction in conjunction with vast geological changes, such as mountain building episodes, volcanism and marine transgressions. Kloosterman associated it with a burnt charcoal layer – delineating vast landscape fires. It has been suggested by various authors (2 ) that this catastrophic scenario encompassed a shift in the geographical location of the North Pole – from somewhere in the Hudson ...

... From "Earth in Upheaval" © 1955 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Aquatic Graveyards The Old Red Sandstone is regarded as one of the oldest strata with signs of extinct life in it. No animal life higher than fish is found there. Whatever the age of this formation, it carries the testimony and "a wonderful record of violent death falling at once, not on a few individuals, but on whole tribes."1 In the late thirties of the last century Hugh Miller made the Old Red Sandstone in Scotland the special subject of his investigations. He observed: "The earth had already become a vast sepulchre, to a depth beneath ...

... the mammoth and rhino finds that are likely to be so reported since these, alone, are important for their ivory.(61) This is most curious. Ivory is a term relevant to material from several different animal species (most notably the elephant), but the rhinoceros is not included. The horn of the rhinoceros and the extinct woolly version was no exception- is composed of the protein keratin which is also found in hair, skin, nails, hooves, etc. By no stretch of the imagination can it be regarded as ivory. We are, once more, in Ellenberger's own realm of "Syntax, Semantics etc.". While on the subject ...

' Mammoths lasted on Wrangel Island until 4,000 years ago and Musk Oxen and the giant Irish Elk reappeared in Siberia, lasting there another 1,000 - 2,000 years. Of course, there might be something wrong with carbon dating, but the evidence is ...
