21. Genesis and Extinction [Books] [de Grazia books]
... From: The Lately Tortured Earth, by Alfred De Grazia Home | Issue Contents CHAPTER TWENTY-SEVEN Genesis and Extinction Man is an exceptional creature, creative and destructive. He is a walking catastrophe for other kinds of life. Rashmi Mayur, in agitating for a "Kalotic World Order," projects that mankind will extirpate most species of life within this generation in exchange for 1.5 billion more people. J.W . Carpenter has cited estimates that 25% of all existing species may become extinct by the year 2000 [1 ]; this is not the work of man alone perhaps, for the Earth itself may be enduring a longer-term decline stemming from its ancient cosmic ...
22. The Problem Of The Extinction [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 3 No 2&3 (1997) Home | Issue Contents The Problem Of The Extinction Charles Ginenthal "It is easy to represent the effect of such a shock upon the Earth: the axis and motions of rotation changed, the waters abandoning their previous position, to precipitate themselves towards the new equator; the greater part of men and animals drowned in a universal deluge, or destroyed by the violence of the shock given to the terrestrial globe; whole species destroyed; all the monuments of industry reversed; such are the disasters which a shock of a comet will produce." Pierre Simon Laplace System of the World, (1793) " ...
... THE theory of the transmutation of species, considered in the last chapter, has met with some degree of favor from many naturalists, from their desire to dispense, as far as possible, with the repeated intervention of a First Cause, as often as geological monuments attest the successive appearance of new races of animals and plants, and the extinction of those pre-existing. But, independently of a predisposition to account, if possible, for a series of changes in the organic world by the regular action of secondary causes, we have seen that in truth many perplexing difficulties present themselves to one who attempts to establish the nature and reality of the specific character. And if once there ...

25. Catastrophes and the History of Life on Earth [Journals] [SIS Review]
... ; silently and insensibly working, whenever and wherever opportunity offers, at the improvement of each being in relation to its organic and inorganic conditions of life. We see nothing of these slow changes in progress, until the hand of time has marked the long lapses of ages... ' [1 ]. In Darwin's view, The extinction of species and of whole groups of species, which has played so conspicuous a part in the history of the organic world, almost inevitably follows on the principle of natural selection; for old forms will be supplanted by new and improved forms' [2 ]. In contrast to this notion of extinction through competition, as new, ...
26. Glaciations, Biologic Crises and Supernovae [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... ) Home | Issue Contents The Russian version of this paper has appeared in Bull. MOIP, sec. geologie, 1977/1 : 1-32. Glaciations, Biologic Crises and Supernovae L. J. Salop All-Union Geological Research Institute, Leningrad, USSR Summary and Introduction The organic evolution of our planet during the Phanerozoic is characterised by sudden mass extinctions of various groups acompanied or followed by the sudden proliferation of forms belonging to the same or to other groups. During the Precambrian and at the Precambrian-Cambrian bundary discontinuities are distinguished by the sudden expansion of many forms, not preceded by extinctions. Both types of crisis must be regarded as revolutions in the history of Life. An attempt is ...
27. Volcanoes, Earthquakes, Comets. Ch.9 Axis Shifted (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... volcanic mountain in the world: Cotopaxi in Ecuador is over 19 000 feet high. The Andes reached their present height only in the age of modern man. Magma intruded into the rock and lifted it; in many places magma reached the surface, broke through vents, and built craters. Most of those volcanoes, however, are already extinct. Central America abounds in volcanoes, most of them extinct or dormant; the highest, Orizaba in Mexico, over 18 000 feet high, was active for the last time three centuries ago. In the United States few volcanoes are active, though many became extinct very recently, in the geological sense. Alaska, the Aleutian Islands ...
28. The Extinction of the Mammoth by Charles Ginenthal (Book Review). C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2002:1 (Jul 2002) Home | Issue Contents Book Review The Extinction of the Mammoth by Charles Ginenthal 1997 (Special edition of The Velikovskian, comprising nos. 2 & 3 of Vol. III) Jill Abery, J.B . Delair Charles Ginenthal takes us back to the exciting days of Velikovsky's Earth in Upheaval, with a plethora of new evidence which cuts the ground from under the feet of those who still doggedly hold the view that the demise of the large ice age' fauna across the high latitude regions of the world happened at the end of the Ice Age, around 10,000 years ago, due ...
29. The Age Of Man In America [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 3 No 2&3 (1997) Home | Issue Contents The Age Of Man In America Charles Ginenthal "The disturbing reality is that for none of the thousands of well documented extinctions in the geologic past do we have a solid explanation of why the extinction occurred. We have many proposals in specific cases, of course: trilobites died out because of competition from newly evolved fish; dinosaurs were too big or too stupid; the antlers of Irish elk became too cumbersome. These are all plausible scenarios, but no matter how plausible, they cannot be shown to be true beyond reasonable doubt. Equally plausible alternative scenarios can be invented with ease ...
30. On Ecological Niches in Evolution [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Home | Issue Contents FORUM On Ecological Niches in Evolution Jill Abery comments: I quite understand David Salkeld's perplexity over Trevor Palmer's views. Trevor appears to be agreeing with me that natural selection during periods of stasis acts to conserve species and that periods of rapid evolutionary change occur only when the restraint of natural selection is lifted, as after catastrophic extinctions. How, then, can he say that it is unnecessary to postulate different evolutionary mechanisms during the different phases? I was forced to conclude that natural selection cannot be the force behind evolution and that, in fact, evolution does not occur during stasis. Trevor, however, is saying that evolution takes place all the time by ...
