281. "It Is Hard To Quarrel With Numbers". File I (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... may have tilted in the presence of a strong magnetic field, so that the sun appeared to lose for hours its diurnal movement." (1 ) As her chief geological argument Payne-Gaposchkin asserted in the published article that "there is no evidence of a wholesale disturbance of ocean level near 1500 B.C ., " or 3, ... years ago, and this alone suffices to show that no global catastrophe could have occurred then. Professor Reginald Daly, of the same Harvard University, dean of American geologists, was world famous for his observation that "a recent world-wide sinking of ocean level" of twenty feet took place "about 3,500 years ago." ( ...
282. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... ), here in a heavily abridged form: - "Although the papers all relate to some aspect of Cultural Amnesia, they deal with subjects as diverse as anthropology, geology, narrative art and psychiatry. While the task of showing relationships between them is desirable, it is difficult. It is my hope that the interpretation presented here, ... needs of the individual to be reminded of the events, and soothing hidden fears by implying a rational order to an otherwise irrational universe. "GEORGE GRINNELL, once a geologist and now a historian of science at McMaster University, shows how science has been altered to preclude all mention or examination of catastrophic disruptions. In the same sense in ...
283. The Birth Of The Ice Age Theory. Ch.4 Ice (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... "2 It was a setting for a revelation. Agassiz won a follower. A few weeks later, on November 4, 1840, Agassiz read a paper before the Geological Society of London, summarizing the excursion in the light of the Ice Age theory, and Buckland, who was then president of the society, followed with a paper ... conclusions with respect to other parts of the world on the basis of observations limited to Switzerland and its surroundings. He thought that if he could convert two of the leading geologists, Buckland, the author of Reliquiae diluvianae, and Murchison, to the ice-age theory and thus win their support, the task of gaining recognition for it would become ...
... ]: a major synthesis of many disciplines, reflecting a thorough knowledge of such fields as anthropology, archaeology, astronomy, biology, chemistry, classical literature, folklore, geology, paleontology, physics, psychology, religion, world history; massive documentation from many texts- Old Testament, Talmud, Egyptian papyri- and from diverse traditions and ... Some scientists made immediate and strongly negative responses to those favorable opinions. David Delo of the Amercan Geological Institute said that Velikovsky had by-passed the sound, scientific observations made by geologists during the previous century. Harlow Shapley, director of the Harvard Observatory, dismissed Velikovsky's ideas as rubbish and nonsense. Carl Kraeling, historian, director of the Oriental ...
285. The Ruined Face of a Classic Beauty [Books] [de Grazia books]
... of the Goddess Aphrodite. What happened to it happened to her and what happened to her, in many cases, happened to it. We turn, therefore, to geology and astrophysics and ask what, if anything, happened to the Moon in the time of Homer. The Moon is old, as all matter and energy may be ... c ) There is something seriously wrong with the radioactive clocks or our reading of them. In reply, Velikovsky cited two additional "commonsense" tests in his favor. Geologist examining the samples of Apollo XI recorded "the extremely fresh appearance of the interior of all crystalline rocks, in spite of their microfractures and high potassium-argon age." ...
286. Earth has Flipped Over in Space Many Times [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... pastwhen the Earth flipped end over end in space, says a British scientist. These polar reversals, which take as little time as one day to happen, explain many geological and archaeological mysteries that puzzle scientists. According to physicist Peter Warlow in the Journal of Physics (A , 10 November 1978), polar reversals- also called pole ... the geographic ends of the Earth's axis of spin, and are different from the magnetic poles; the north magnetic pole is presently 11 degrees west of true north.) Geologists have learned that the geomagnetic field has switched polarity more than 400 times in the last 90 million years, so that magnetic lines of force go in a direction opposite ...
287. Acknowledgments [Books]
... in his Foreword as an `incompetent judge' and an `amateur geologist', I would like to point out that he is the author of authoritative works on the geology of the Sahara and -as he writes himself- he has for thirty years been interested in the study of `circular features', especially those found in the Sahara ... about them. In reading the manuscript of the book he made valuable suggestions. Although he describes himself in his Foreword as an `incompetent judge' and an `amateur geologist', I would like to point out that he is the author of authoritative works on the geology of the Sahara and -as he writes himself- he has for ...
288. Confessions of a Cenoist [Journals] [Aeon]
... hundreds of techniques that confirm the hoary age of whatever the scientific mainstream alleges is stable or ancient. They firmly date the development of the Solar System, the time-frames of geological strata, the end of the dinosaurs, Egyptian civilization- although these epochs are obscured by the haze that envelops the distant past. If their histories were packaged in ... ." Aside from this fortuitous balance of meaning, "paleoize" has the added cachet of issuing from an ancient language. Paleoizers flourish in many sciences. Astronomers, geologists, and archaeologists toss around numbers nearly as large as the US federal budget. Number inflation has become a norm of modern civilization. In my lifetime, astronomers have ...

... Old worlds. The Lost Cities of Cibola by R. Petersen, 1985, $22 50 The author is a PhD physicist who has turned his attention to archaeology and geology and produced a book reminiscent of I. Donelly and I. Velikovsky in its catastrophic orientation'. He believes thriving cities in Nebraska were lost and anomalous geology created ... by D. Ager, 1993, $32 95 This is a sequel to The Nature of the Stratigraphic Record, already a classic among neocatastrophists. Written by an expert geologist, this book is described as vivid testimony that uniformitarianism is passť'. Jack Horsford recommends some 19th century books. Book of Beginnings by Gerald Massey (2 vols ...

... quality, regards petroleum as originating from organic, not inorganic, matter." I could not make it clearer. So much for my appalling method. As for the geological aspect of the theory of Worlds in Collision, Longwell says: Velikovsky raises anew the matter of "erratic blocks" --masses of rock that clearly have been displaced through ... to disprove Worlds in Collision. Together they prepared an article for the American Journal of Science published at Yale. The editor, Professor Chester R. Longwell, himself a geologist and one of the four authors, arranged to have this article printed in the daily press, too, in advance of its appearance in the Journal. In the ...
