... or furrows are found. The rock-surfaces have not been ground down and polished. " This is the more remarkable," says Mr Giekie seeing that the regions to the north, west, cast, and south all more or less deeply covered with drift deposits. 8And, in this region, as in Siberia, the remains of the extinct mammalia are found imbedded in the surface-wash, or in cracks or crevices of the limestone. If the Drift of North America was due to the ice-sheet, why is there no drift-deposit in " the drift-less region " of the North western states of America? Surely this region must have been as cold as Illinois, Ohio, etc. ...

282. Instantaneous Shifts of the Poles [Journals] [Aeon]
... an angle of 20 (but it could be 10 , or 30 , or whatever other angle smaller than 45 ). Finally, Driscoll concludes with: "If a bolide hits us, we'll have a real problem, but not those which Barbiero deduces from his thesis." I object to this. We have evidence that some mass extinctions of the past occurred coincident with the impact of a "large" (let's say more than 3 km) asteroid, which makes possible a connection of cause-effect between the two events. Having dismissed a priori the possibility of a world-wide catastrophe due to a shift of the poles, scientists are bound to find a different plausible cause for ...

283. The Molecular Revolution [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... DNA sequences by Becky Cann and colleagues of Berkeley. Even though our supposed ancestor, Homo erectus, was distributed throughout the Old World a million years ago, the mitochondrial DNA evidence suggests that we are all descended from one woman who lived in Africa about 200,000 years ago [29-31]. That would imply an evolutionary bottleneck and extinction of other hominid lines, whether by natural catastrophe or invasion of territory. Needless to say, not everyone agrees with this interpretation of the evidence [31-33]. Nevertheless, extinctions are unquestionably a feature of hominid evolution, as evidenced, for example, by the disappearance of Australopithecus robustus at a time when conditions changed from wet to ...

This conflicts with ideas that early Americans migrated south down the western side of the continent. Where did all the giants go?New Scientist 2.4 .94, p. 13 The mammals of the ice-age, which became extinct by 10,000 years ago, are renowned for their huge size. Now it is suggested that even the ancestors of surviving types, including man, were larger. In particular, research in Australia has led one scientist to state that the average height of Australian aboriginals fell by about 1/5 between 10,000 and 6000 ...

... the end of the Cretaceous Period: Sixty-five million years ago most of the species on Earth were snuffed out - probably because of a massive cometary or asteroidal collision. Among those killed off were all the dinosaurs, which had for nearly 200 million years .. . been the dominant species, the ubiquitous masters of life on Earth. This extinction event removed the chief predators of a small, fearful, cowering nocturnal order of animals called the mammals. If not for that collision - a late step in the tidying up of interplanetary space of the remaining worlds on eccentric orbits - we humans and our primate ancestors would never have come to be. Much of the second half of ...

286. Encounters and Collisions [Books] [de Grazia books]
... anomalies have begun to be detected in circular areas of the Earth and shortly we may expect mascons in the Earth's morphology as well. With the aforesaid "soft frills," one can expect the Earth to exhibit hills and mountains, as of iron ore and erratic isolated hills, which are then surficial mascons. Concerning the "abrupt" extinction of Cretaceous life forms, Smit and Hertogen, like Alvarez and his associates, see in a general distribution of two trace elements, iridium and osmium, at this stratum of the phanerozoic record a proof of meteoroid impact [5 ]. Soil and rock everywhere, it would seem, are in need of chemical tests in search of ...

... much for the entire rationale of his theory and confirmation of catastrophic events acting with great deviation from their current intensity. All this, in fact, was well know long before Gould presented his criticism of Velikovsky based on plate tectonics. In fact, Gould himself, in arguing for cosmic catastrophes such as the one that drove the dinosaurs to extinction, admits that "The record of geologic history has been shown to be full of discontinuities. The better our methods of correlation become, the more geographically widespread some of these hiatuses become. Some are due to the withdrawal of the sea causing worldwide interruptions in the process of entombment of evidence, as well as erosion of the previous ...

Logically, then, every science is concerned with quantavolutions, past and future. Every sphere of being is affected, so we can say Q is holospheric. Thousands of plant and animal species extincted with the famous dinosaurs. The stratigraphy of much of the Earth changed. The atmosphere changed. The motions of the Earth changed, how much we do not yet know. As a matter of fact, we know very little yet about the events and changes that took place when the dinosaurs felt the disastrous effects of falling bodies from ...

"It is impossible to entirely discard the idea of some general defect in the organization of the red race, for it is manifest it already bears within itself the germs of an early extinction. Other nations will like when these unblessed children of the New World have all gone to their rest in the long sleep of death.

... ]. The loricates are the only survivors of the mighty Thecodont Archosaurs dominated in the Mesozoic by the dinosaurs. The preference for water shared by all extant species of loricates originated in the Jurassic over 150 MYA, when the mesosuchians swam in the seas. Some mesosuchians like Metriorhynchus and Geosaurus had limbs that had turned into flippers. Fossils of extinct crocodilians have been discovered on all continents except Antarctica. Their provenance includes Europe, the Soviet Union (C .I .S .) , Canada and elsewhere where no alligators or crocodiles live today. The earliest crocodiles were the Protosuchians which arose in the Upper Triassic in South Africa; the North American Protosuchus stratum dates to the Lower ...
