271. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Climate Change? (New Scientist, 16.7 .05, p. 18; Daily Mail, 1.6 .05, p. 13) Most of Australia's megafauna was wiped out either 50 or 30 million years ago, depending on the source of information. There is no direct evidence that the earliest Australians hunted them to extinction but one group of researchers would like to blame humans for altering the environment by lighting fires. Apparently the diets of some animals changed around that time from grasses to shrubs and trees and these animals were the survivors. On the other hand it is highly unlikely that the small numbers of humans present at that time could have caused a ...

... spoke of cata-clysmic floods and worldwide conflagrations, were essentially historical. (76) The planetary collision scenarios he saw behind Earth-involving battles of the gods (theomachies) are still being challenged and can be shown to contain a number of errors. Yet, in substance, his view of cosmic catastrophism not only gained in reputation for geological time (extinction of dinosaurs, etc.), (77) but was also backed for the Bronze Age, i.e . for the time of writing. In 1982, two British astronomers, Victor Clube (University of Oxford) and William Napier (Royal Observatory, Edinburgh), published The Cosmic Serpent: A Catastrophist View of Earth ...

... by Mr. Field, like that discussed by Warlow, is nowhere commensurate with the chaotic conditions during the event that he so vividly describes. This is a commonplace situation where the supposed evidence for a world-shattering catastrophe is a vague shadow of what would be expected and is capable of being readily explained by other less extravagant processes. The Pleistocene extinctions and climactic changes do not require an inversion and neither does the draining of Lakes Missoula and Bonneville. Regarding the extinctions of the mammoths and other mega-fauna, I withdraw my remarks in KRONOS VII:4 (1982), pp. 66-83, in favor of William White's rejoinder in the three issues of KRONOS XI (1985-6). ...

275. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... DR KLOOSTERMAN AND THE AUTHOR. The history of the natural sciences is characterised by controversy. Conflicting theories and interpretations, based on the same set of facts, have been commonplace rather than the exception. Geology follows the same pattern of development, with controversies raging about continental drift, submarine canyons, the age of the Earth, and the extinction of species. The conflict between uniformitarianism and catastrophism that underlies many of these controversies is as old as geology itself. These two philosophies offer incompatible interpretations of the earth's past, present and future, It has been claimed (1 ) that originally all scientists, including geologists, were catastrophists. In the middle of the last century, ...

... , in a manner simple enough that even Wells may understand it. Schaefer's original program in Sky & Telescope (September, 1985, page 262) has six inputs that must be supplied, but at least two of these, "the limiting stellar magnitude at the a fully dark sky" and "the visual extinction (k ), or stellar magnitude lost by a beam of light passing vertically through the atmosphere," are simply not known for antiquity. Schaefer suggests that users of his program might wish to employ a photometer. But how are we supposed to apply a photometer to the ancient sky? Schaefer misses no opportunity to trash those from ...

... are: Leonids 4 days Beta Taurids 10 days Zeta Perseids 15 days Arietids 20 days - suggesting that some of the relatively prolific showers mentioned above are rather older than the Beta Taurids. f). Many contrary theories are simply ignored. There is a vocal and long-running debate among the impact theorists and the volcanism theorists with regard to major extinctions, notably the terminal Cretaceous dinosaur extermination. Clube and Napier simply hijack the stronger points of each, and allow their impacts to cause the Deccan Traps volcanic episode associated with the extinction [84]. They should address the geological objections to this view [85]. The necessary hot plume in the mantle upwells, Courtillot reckons, ...

It cannot be cited in support of Darwinian theory. (pp. 50-51)" The horses are not a conspicuous example of an idiomorphon relentlessly developing toward extinction, but there are plenty of these from molluscs that finally sealed themselves into their shells to dinosaurs that outgrew their environment. The antlers of the Irish elk are a very minor manifestation of a seemingly widespread kind of problem: "If selection consciously oversees evolution, how is it possible that, through the ages, so many lines have ...
