291. The Science of Evolution (Concluded) [Journals] [Kronos]
... concludes that, given enough time and granting the arbitrary nature of higher taxa, there is no problem. The random processes of minute genetic variation and mutation when operating in geographical isolation, which results primarily from dispersal from centers of origin, requires nothing more to account for the evolution of higher categories: "With increasing evolutionary divergence and the extinction of intermediate types, the higher categories become easier to define. There is nothing natural about these higher categories except the biological continuity by which they are linked through time plus extinction of groups that fail to meet the challenge attendant to environmental fluctuations. Therefore, there is no reason to invoke any new or special processes to account for the ...

292. Monitor. C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of fullerines (Buckyballs) in the Permian-Tertiary (P-T) boundary. Analysis of the gases trapped in the fullerines revealed a helium/argon ratio not encountered on earth but known from meteorites, etc. This is considered evidence for an extra-terrestrial event coincident with the Great Dying' in which 95% of marine species and many land species became extinct. Re-examination of the K-T (Krete-Triassic) boundary revealed fullerines too. No associated crater has been found, but if impact was in a non-shallow ocean none would be expected: even if the crust was disrupted subsequent replacement of sea-floors would hide it. For reasons not clear the impactor is thought to have been of c. 9km diameter ...

... also supposed to flow through the country of the Cimmerians, the original name of the Gaels or Galatai, described by Homer as situate beyond ocean stream (the Gulf Stream) and un-blest by the sun, a region of mist and fog. The Cimmerians, living in a region of amber and tin, are treated by Herodotus as an extinct people, who classified them nevertheless as dwelling in the ends of the earth. The Cimmerians, despite Herodotus, were not an extinct people but they were largely an expatriated people like the Children of Israel, whose history in fact concludes with a similar catastrophe as foreshadowed in the Greek traditions. As the Cimbri they were a power in ...

294. Pole-Shift [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... mid-motion- a grim charade. Throughout Alaska the gnawing currents of rivers have eaten into many frozen banks of muck to reveal these bones and tusks, protruding at all levels. Whole gravel bars in the rivers were formed of the jumbled fragments of animal remains. See Figure 11. The Pleistocene period ended in death. This is no ordinary extinction of a vague geological period which fizzled to an uncertain end. Termination was catastrophic and all-inclusive. These deaths were of such colossal proportions as to be staggering to contemplate. During the last shift of the earth's crust, Alaska- indeed, all of North America- and South America were moving south to their present positions. The " ...

295. ALL Honorable Men [Books]
... Jay Gould wrote an article, "Is uniformity necessary?" in the American Journal of Science, Vol. 263, pp. 223-228. That is how Gould evaded the concept of catastrophism. In 1970, Digby J. McLaren in the Journal of Paleontology, Vol. 44, pp. 801-815, suggested the possibility that a major extinction in the past could be considered to be caused by an extraterrestrial agent. This was how McLaren expressed his repulsion of Velikovsky's hypothesis. Stephen Jay Gould and Niles Eldredge, both of whom were clearly cognizant of Velikovsky's theories, published their theory of "Punctuated equilibria: An alternative to phyletic gradualism, in Models in Paleobiology," edited ...

297. Scientific Dating Methods In Ruins [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... more than 27,000 years. The emerging picture is one of scientists abusing this methodology. The culling of data to make the Ice Age end 10,000 to 12,000 years ago and to support the view that mankind arrived when the Ice Age ended is stated clearly. In the debate over the cause of the Late Pleistocene extinctions, there are two theories. One model offers climate change as the cause while another model offers the "overkill" hypothesis- the theory that man killed the animals in a short period of great slaughter. L. Krishtalka, arguing against the overkill theorists, stated that "[ t ]heir selective acceptance of only `good' dates- ...

... is involved.(1 ) As for biological "creation," Powell bases this on Velikovsky's assertion that the cosmic rays released by Saturn's explosion caused massive mutations among all species of life, and that thus man was able to witness the "creation" of new life forms. But the same cosmic rays would also have resulted in the extinction of some species. Sudden massed deaths, had man really witnessed them, would also have impressed him. And extinction would have preceded mutation since the latter would have required the passage of at least one generation for its effects to become evident. Sudden extinction would more readily have been linked to the flare-up; the latter mutations might not ...

... From "Earth in Upheaval" © 1955 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Sea And Land Changed Places The most renowned naturalist to come from the generation of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars was Georges Cuvier. He was the founder of vertebrate paleontology, or the science of fossil bones, and thus of the science of extinct animals. Studying the finds made in the gypsum formation of Montmartre in Paris and those elsewhere in France and the European continent in general, he came to the conclusion that in the midst of even the oldest strata of marine formations there are other strata replete with animal or plant remains of terrestrial or fresh-water forms; and that among the ...

... state of their shells, and the age of volcanic rocks by the amount of erosion. By counting the annual bands of clay and silt we may find out the number of years spent in their deposition. By studying the rings in old tree trunks we can determine the time of climatic changes as reflected in their growth. The remains of extinct and extant animals-their appearance, position on the ladder of evolution, and state of fossilization-enable us to establish their time of existence. By the content of radiocarbon in organic matter we may detect the time when an animal or plant died, and by the accumulation of fluorine in bones the length of time since burial. Finally, by studying ...
