121. Common Sense About Ancient Maps [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... that it also was compiled from accurate source maps of Antarctica,...in this case of the entire continent. Close examination has proved [that] the original source maps must have been compiled at a time when the land mass and inland waterways of the continent were relatively free of ice. The conclusion is further supported by International Geophysical Year teams in their measurements of the subglacial topography. (Emphasis added.) The comparison also suggests that the original source maps (compiled in antiquity) were prepared when Antarctica was presumably free of ice. The Cordiform Projection used by Oronteus Fineus suggests the use of advanced mathematics. Further, the shape given to the Antarctic continent suggests ...
122. The Velikovsky Affair [Books] [de Grazia books]
... put in, not long ago, to master several points of chemistry for an article in reply to chemistry Professor Albert Burgstahler. Hence, we should add that the same is true of the soft' scientists - the Graves, the Schliemanns, the Freuds, the Jungs, the Campbells and the Eliades: these must treat of oceanography, geophysics, and celestial dynamics. Also, and merely as one of the halt leading the blind, ' I would suggest that scientists and scholars repair to the philosophical foundations of science and humanism upon which the disciplinary structures rest; upon reading and reviewing Plato, Hegel, Dewey, Bridgman and the like, and understanding the critical decisions of ...
123. The Age of Purple Darkness [Journals] [Aeon]
... : Due to technical difficulties, the accent circumflex (^ ) will be used in lieu of a bar; other diacritics had to be sacrificed. The Age of Purple Darkness Roger Ashton Scientific Problems The Purple Darkness is a phase of mythical history with which a longer paper will deal in more detail.To be analyzed are the astrophysical, geophysical, biological, and other implications of the darkness with which myth maintains that creation began. The present essay is, in effect, a preview that surveys a few aspects of larger problems with as much independent treatment as seems possible. The total context forms, like knowledge, an indivisible whole, so that only parenthetically can the interlinked ...

125. Additional Examples of Correct Prognosis [Books] [de Grazia books]
... suddenly increased by 0.85 millisecond. Thereafter the day began to decrease by 3.7 microseconds every 24 hours [5 ]. He ascribed the fluctuation in the length of the day to an electromagnetic cause connected with the flare. His announcement created a sensation among the delegates to the General Assembly of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics' that year in Helsinki [5 ]. V. Bargmann of Princeton University and L. Motz of Columbia University claimed for me the priority of predicting radio-noises from Jupiter, the existence of a magnetosphere around the earth, and the high ground temperature of Venus [6 ]. They stressed also that these discoveries later came as great ...

... , in 1966, still didn't quite get Bauer's consensus and wrote, "The clouds of Jupiter . . . are thought to be composed of frozen crystals of ammonia, but this is not certain. The temperature of the clouds is about – 100oC."23 By 1967, five years after Bauer's consensus, Raymond Hide, Professor of Geophysics and Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, somehow was unaware of this consensus and wrote: "about minus 120 degrees Celsius. Nevertheless, the surface is significantly hotter than it would be if solar radiation were the only form of energy reaching it. 24 Were all the scientists, astronomers and science writers cited below ignorant that by ...
127. Antiquated Textbooks: Redesigning the Solar System [Journals] [Aeon]
... " the friend replied. Ley then adds: "Fact is nobody did until it was discovered."  Fact is one man did- and Willy Ley knew it. Although what I have to report next has been repeated many times before, it behooves us to remember it. During 1956, preparations for the forthcoming International Geophysical Year (which was due to commence on July 1, 1957) were under way. On December 5, 1956, Velikovsky gave Professor Harry Hess a memorandum describing several projects which he felt should be included in the IGY program. The very first project in this memorandum was worded by Velikovsky as follows: "Measurements of the strength ...
... criticism (for instance, Waldemar Keampffert's comparison of the two geologists to Jules Vernes and H. G. Wells in the April 12, 1936 New York Times), and after consulting with astronomers, Hess had quietly let the subject drop. At their initial meeting Velikovsky asked Hess to relay to the proper authorities his own suggestions for International Geophysical Year (IGY) -related tests, and Hess in turn gave Velikovsky a copy of his 1947 paper on the platform-topped seamounts which he had dubbed guyots. On December 5, Velikovsky sent Hess his comments on the guyot paper; Hess wrote him on January 2 that his remarks had been "acute. You have put your finger ...

... From: SIS Review Vol VII Part A (1985) Home | Issue Contents Velikovsky: Hero or Heretic?ROBERT JASTROW Dr Robert Jastrow is a highly distinguished astronomer, geologist, and science writer. In 1961 he founded NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, of which he is the Director and is Adjunct Professor of Geophysics at Columbia University and of Earth Sciences at Dartmouth College. He is the author of numerous books on astronomy, including such titles as Until the Sun Dies (1977) and God and the Astronomers (1978). In 1968 NASA awarded him a medal for exceptional scientific achievement. Jastrow, while acknowledging the weakness of many of the criticisms levelled at ...
