11. New Methods of Investigation [Books]
... was to lead to the development and perfection of new methods of investigation. New criteria were sought which would facilitate the identification of `cosmic scars'. Intensive geological and geophysical research was undertaken in the laboratory and in the field. 3. The results achieved may be summarised as follows: A.In Respect of Large Craters (fig ... may easily be confused with meteoritic features, are extinct volcanoes of which the greater part of the cone has collapsed into the `magma chamber' (calderas). Some geophysicists, studying the energies necessary to produce large volcanic explosion craters, arrived at the conclusion that the strength of the sedimentary lay's, sealing off the fissures, was not ...
12. Scientific Prehistory [Books]
... mode (v', 0 +) and c for electron capture EC. Fig 5-1 Computed Relative Abundances vs. Mass Number Chapter XII MANTLE CONVECTION CURRENTS The 1958 International Geophysical Year, IGY, marked recognition (after a century of ignoring the evidence) of an original single continent, Pangaea, that had ruptured and its fragments, the ... 1 ) A simple wholly observational dating method to replace the above Scientific Prehistory fictitious ones. (The age of the earth turns out to be about half that claimed by geophysicists, but the solar system is found to be about the same as claimed by earth scientists. This galactic cosmic ray and photo-sphere method still shows that the surface features ...
13. Sagan's fourth problem: Terrestrial Geology And Lunar Craters (Carl Sagan & Immanuel Velikovsky) [Books]
... Age theory demands. The findings support Velikovsky's hypothesis and categorically deny the uniformitarian hypothesis. According to Hammer, Clausen, Dansgaard, Neftel, Kristimlotter and Reeh in the American Geophysical Union Monograph, Vol. 33 (1985), p. 90 the dust particles in the Greenland glacier "was up to 100 times as great in the last ... . Meyerhoff in discussing geologists, who advocate continental drift theory when they encounter evidence that contradicts their uniformitarian theory state, "There is a failure of almost all geologists and geophysicists to face [contrary evidence]...is fatal [and] is incredible in a profession as responsible as ours. "Possibly the four greatest failings . ...
14. Anomalous Occurrence of Crocodilia in Eocene Polar Forests [Journals] [SIS Review]
... any possible conditions of climate in which these plants could grow so near the pole, deprived of sunlight for many months of the year." [4 ] Even the geophysical difficulty was recognised early: "It is much more difficult to think of a cause which will raise the temperature of polar regions by some 30 degrees Fahrenheit or more ... coast of Ellesmere Island. Turtles and other remains were dated to the early Eocene, 55 MYA. George Hobson, former director of Canada's Polar Continental Shelf Project and a geophysicist, noted that 55 MYA the Arctic was tropical; that even when it was a steamy jungle, they would have 24 hours a day of sunlight or darkness' ...
15. Magnetic Remanence in Lunar Rocks [Journals] [Pensee]
... of the National Academy of Sciences. With him passed the only prominent geophysicist who demanded a hearing for Velikovsky's proposals. Twelve years earlier, on the eve of the International Geophysical Year, he wrote to Velikovsky (January 2, 1957): "Scientific discoveries and ideas are produced by the intuition, creativeness and genius of a man. ... five weeks after the Apollo XI flight, leaving vacant his position as chairman of the Space Science Board of the National Academy of Sciences. With him passed the only prominent geophysicist who demanded a hearing for Velikovsky's proposals. Twelve years earlier, on the eve of the International Geophysical Year, he wrote to Velikovsky (January 2, 1957) ...
16. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , we should be aware of the need for constant revision of this very assumption." Klemes points out that "the behaviour of time series of long historic records of geophysical processes [specifically the "Hurst phenomenon" concerning the maximum flood stages of the Nile] is compatible with the concept of catastrophic evolution". A modest start, ... MacBeth (Whimsical Aspects of Scientific Theory), W.J . Jong (Actualism in Geology and Geography, reprinted from a Dutch geological journal) and Vit Klemes (Geophysica1 Time Series and Catastrophism, a paper presented at the McMaster symposium). The two earlier papers enquire into the "scientific process"; Jong's, while scorning " ...
17. Geogullibility And Geomagnetic Reversals [Journals] [Kronos]
... the minds of earth scientists with more rigidity than the generalities of uniformity ever could. Since these interlocking notions are likely to be the last bastion of defense for geology and geophysics against the barbarous ideas of Velikovsky, one may reasonably wonder: What is all this business about a succession of magnetic polarity cycles? The great stampede to embrace sea-floor ... of the total field. Some valleys are relatively deep, others not so deep; some peaks are considerably higher than average, others not so high. How does the geophysicist determine which of these features, other than the most obvious of them, are truly negative or truly positive anomalies? For the confirmed sea-floor-spreader, the procedure is simplicity ...
18. Earth Parturition and Moon Birth [Books] [de Grazia books]
... ]. 34.* The magnetic dipole at the "center" of the Earth is actually 436 kilometers off-center, displaced toward the Pacific Basin. All of these are geophysical and astronomical arguments for Moon eruption, a recent eruption besides, and for more recent disturbances. The list of legendary arguments is to be presented at the end of ... in which Uranus Minor disappeared into far space. At first the Moon mass rotated. Then its face was fixed toward the Earth as it revolved. Alfred Wegener, the geophysicist who produced the continental drift theory in the 1920's touched briefly upon the missing sial of the Earth's structure, saying that "the outermost layer, represented by the continental ...
19. The Moon In Upheaval [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... , by uniformitarian cooling processes, ought to be frozen solid, and the only catastrophe congruent with all the other evidence is a tidal distortion. There are no laws of geophysics or thermodynamics which will allow for the Moon, per unit volume, to be hotter than the Earth over 3 to 4 billion years and then to cool to its ... recent tidal distortion of the Moon, viz, the lunar bulge, maria, mascons and deep-focus moonquakes. With regard to each of these physical phenomena, the astronomers and geophysicists have, for over 30 years, been stymied in finding a plausible uniformitarian explanation in a manner that even remotely suggests consensus will ever be found for any of their ...
20. Radiocarbon Dating and Velikovskian Catastrophism [Journals] [Pensee]
... the past and currently available for accurate analysis. The radiocarbon dating method offers such parameters, provided its basic premises can be verified. Moreover, since Velikovsky's hypothesis proposes profound geophysical changes, a geophysically-independent "clock" is required to test his claims, and only radioactive carbon decay promises that independence (2 ) together with sufficient sensitivity during historical ... . The radiocarbon dating method is primarily a method of measuring carbon isotope ratios. When the method is applied to samples of inorganic origin, the "dates" reflect primarily the radiocarbon ratio (that is, ratio of carbon 14 to carbon 12) of the samples, neglecting isotope fractionation (see below). When the method is applied ...
