251. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Age of the Dinosaurs. - NATURE 30/4 /81, p. 739-43 Mammoth Prejudice Two readers, C. W. Ikin and D. A. Parry, have reported to us some of Adrian Berry's writing on the subject of elephants and mammoths. He wrote: "A vast amount of nonsense has been talked about the extinction of the mammoth. One British scientist' recently suggested, for example, that the discovery of dead mammoths in permafrost, with their flesh, and even their cells, intact, was evidence that they were overwhelmed by the sudden onset of an Ice Age - as if they couldn't simply migrate southwards when the climate turned cold!" ...

... await satisfactory answers."1 Climate changed, and the continental ice cover formed. "At present the cause of excessive ice making on the lands remains a baffling mystery, a major question for the future reader of earth's riddles."2 Species and genera of animals were extinguished. "The biologist is in despair as he surveys the extinction of so many species and genera in the closing Pleistocene [Ice Age]."3 Equally sudden and unexplained changes accompanied the close of each geological period. What caused tropical forests to grow in polar regions? What caused volcanic activity on a great scale in the past and lava flows on land and in the ocean beds? What ...

... Eiseley refers to Velikovsky in the opening paragraph of his The Firmament of Time. These various remarks, placed in juxtaposition with Eiseley's comment in his more recent The Night Country, make a fascinating study: Loren Eiseley, as quoted in Velikovsky's Earth in Upheaval (1955): Page 138- "The biologist is in despair as he surveys the extinction of so many species and genera in the closing Pleistocene [Ice Age]." (" The Fire-Drive and the Extinction of the Terminal Pleistocene Fauna," American Anthropologist, 48 [ 1946].) Page 205-". . . sudden and decisive geological or climatic changes occurred which simultaneously wiped out a considerable number of animal species ...

... kind usually found in the Arctic, but elaborate and that of a sophisticated people, in this sense more advanced than any known Eskimos, and clearly derived from eastern Asia."5 In Central Alaska, where the ground has been frozen for many centuries, animals with flesh still attached to their bones have been excavated. "Bones of extinct as well as living species of mammals have been found in most of the regions. . . . They remain not as fossilized bones but in a frozen state, and in some cases, ligaments, skin, and flesh adhere to the bones."6 During the season of 1938, "almost the entire skin of a super-bison ...

... on another date. Another example is the dragon. All around the world this image is prominent in literature and art and also in the religion of peoples. There is probably no nation that does not use this symbol or this creature as an important motif, yet it does not exis t. Several scholars thought that possibly it represented some extinct menace that impressed mankind to a much greater degree than any other creature since it appears on the Chinese flag, and in pictures showing Archangel Michael or St. George in battle wi th it, in Egyptian mythology, in Mexican hieroglyphics and bas-reliefs, and in Assyrian bas-reliefs. However, bones of this presumably extinct reptile have not been ...

... ideas, from fiction masquerading as fact. But all they accomplished was to make Velikovsky a martyr in the eyes of his followers. Today, scientists not only admit that cosmic collisions could have taken place at some time in the distant past, but some even theorize that the impact of a large meteorite about sixty-five million years ago caused the extinction of the dinosaurs. (14) It has also been suggested that the solar system weaves upward or downward across the galactic plane of the Milky Way about every thirty or thirty-six million years, increasing the likelihood of a collision between the earth and a comet or large meteor. (15) Yet the vast majority of scientists continue to ...

' The early simple stone tools were all that were required to deal with scavenged meat and prior to 2.5 Myrs ago unprocessed stones were probably used to smash bones and obtain marrow, leaving no archaeological record. .. . of mammoths too Scientific American September 1992, pp. 130-131 Was man the cause of the extinction of the mammoths or not? (See last issue - Mammoth extinctions) Gary Haynes was not content to simply theorize or run computer programmes but has gathered together the evidence in a book. Analysis of the age structure of the remains of elephant kills and natural die offs in Africa, compared to similar analysis of the mammoths undoubtedly butchered ...

... communities. Strange in that while these mysterious pioneers settled in the Nile Valley, bordering on Asia and Africa yet partaking of neither, they showed no desire to radiate their culture to those either east or west. Strange also in her monuments so plentifully misread by modern interpreters. Strange above all that her religion was based on tenor of sudden extinction related to the Flood. And the whole was essentially Celtic. The most important key to Egypt's past is the predominance of the Celtic deity Hermes who in his dual aspect of Thoth taught the Underworld faith and possessed an absolute ascendancy over the minds of the people, and as Ammon. All that has been said previously in regard to ...

... , arising full-blown, spread that fast? Is it any easier to believe that one day ca. 700 B.C . someone saw the columns of the Treasury of Atreus (72), decided that that was the way columns ought to look, and quickly convinced the rest of the western Greek world to reproduce models which had been extinct for 500-600 years? In addition to column capitals similar to, yet centuries later than, those of the tomb's facade, Italy and Sicily have produced a number of their own "beehive" tombs. Since these are architecturally similar to the Treasury of Atreus, they were initially judged to be of the same antiquity as the Mycenaean tomb ...

It has also been recently repostulated that a 10-kilometer wide asteroid travelling at 25 kilometers per second impacted the Earth, and cast enough meteoritic material into the atmosphere to cause the extinction of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago.(9 ) From a physical point of view, the problem of collisions or encounters can be treated in a first approximation as a Rutherford scattering of neutral, nonmagnetic point masses.(10) In the Rutherford experiments, positively charged alpha particles were "shot" at a gold foil. ...
