243. Lunar Rocks and Velikovsky's Claims [Pensee]
... From: Pensιe Vol. 2 No 2: (May 1972) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered I" Home¦ Issue Contents Lunar Rocks and Velikovsky's Claims Derek York An associate professor of physics in the geophysics division, University of Toronto, Dr. Derek York is analyzing lunar samples as a Foreign Principal Investigator, Apollo Project. In 1896, a 44-year old French professor, Henri Becquerel discovered that uranium compounds emitted rays which penetrated glass and paper and blackened photographic plates. Becquerel had discovered what we call radioactivity. Uranium atoms are unstable and a group of them will very slowly (that is over hundreds of millions of years) spontaneously change into the stable element lead. This transformation is accompanied by the emission of the rays which Becquerel detected. The important thing about uranium radioactivity from our point of view is that it goes on at a rate characteristic of uranium and this rate can not be altered by heating the uranium, hitting it with a hammer or exposing it to a vacuum. Radioactivity, ticking steadily away, therefore provides us with a natural clock ...

245. The Orientation of the Pyramids [Pensee]
... , the Earth's equatorial bulge acting as a stabilizer. In such a case wobbling would result --a residue of such wobbling is still present. For figures, see Earth in Upheaval, "Shifting Poles." In that book I also offer reasons why only the first kind of disturbance (shifting of the celestial pole) would be of stable nature. In Worlds in Collision I described both kinds of change in the direction of the axis and in the position of the poles; but in Earth in Upheaval, on the basis of geophysical facts, I ascribed lasting change only to the first kind of displacement, and changes of temporal character to the second. An application of force (or force field) on the globe creating any such displacement would result in stress in the terrestrial strata and in great earthquakes, and the question could be asked: How is it that the pyramids still stand? Years ago I wrote on the subject (in a debate with Professor J.Q. Stewart, Princeton astronomer, in Harper's for June 1951): "Their solid construction ...
246. Miscellaneous [Pensee]
... a 4500-year span "is far too small, and is of the wrong sign." Continental drift components suggest, in one case, a rotation in the wrong sense, and in a second case, a rotation of only 0.1 minute. Earthquakes are considered, "but a single quake of unprecedented magnitude would be needed to move the pyramids by strain release." The scientists conclude that "continental drift is the most likely explanation, although somewhat implausible, especially as relevant measurements have been made over a 50-year period, whereas geophysical measurements of sea-floor spreading relate to million-year time scales." SCIENTISTS AND MEN. "I have been interested, for a long time, in the psychological process of discovery as the most concise manifestation of man's creative faculty --and in that converse process that blinds him towards truths which, once perceived by a seer, become so heartbreakingly obvious. Now this blackout shutter operates not only in the 'ignorant and superstitious masses' as Galileo called them, but is even more strikingly evident in Galileo's own, and in other geniuses like Aristotle ...

248. Velikovsky: The Score of Success [SIS C&C Review $]
... explained by the petroleum fires hypothesis. While the content of the clouds has yet to be resolved, Velikovsky has shown in a paper (Pensee, Winter 1973-4) that the spectral features in the ultrared, near infrared, infrared, and deep infrared can be accounted for by organic matter, as can the volatility and index of refraction. The retrograde, backward rotation of Venus was confirmed by the Goldstone Radar Tracking Station in 1962. This was absolutely inconceivable under the accepted uniformitarian model of the Solar System. The best the American Geophysical Union could come up with was: "Maybe Venus was created apart from the other planets, perhaps as a secondary solar explosion, or perhaps in a collision of planets." (4) Velikovsky's model, of course, was not recognised. Further, UCLA astronomers P. Goldreich and S. J. Peale discovered in 1966 that whenever Venus passes between Earth and Sun it always turns the same face to the Earth. This 'resonance' suggests a 'gravity lock' from some past close contact between the two planets. ...
249. Scientists support Velikovsky [SIS C&C Review $]
... , Vsekhsvyatskii (16, 17), who is at the Kiev Observatory, has qualitatively and quantitatively discussed the origin of comets from the larger planets and their satellites. He also supported his views with data from meticulous observations of comets. Recently Mamedov (18) analysed the orbits of hypothetical comets that originated from Jupiter and also he (19) used computer calculations to modify and support Vsekhsvyatskii's theory of comet origin on or near the surface of Jupiter. In 1972, Cook (20), who is with the Department of Geophysics at the University of Edinburgh, published an article related to the internal structures of the Moon and planets. He concluded that although all planets are surrounded by different mantles they could have cores similar to that of the Earth. If this were the case, variations between the average densities of Jupiter and bodies expelled from Jupiter would not be expected. Cook considers some of the popular models of Jupiter and Saturn which assume the planets to be composed of hydrogen with various amounts and distributions of helium. The characteristics of Saturn can not ...

... the tremendous forces of polar ice-caps. Crustal uplifts and depressions, shield-geosyncline-welt inter-relationships, the nature and occurrence of coal, oil and fossils, overthrusting and stacking of strata, e.g. in the Canadian Rockies, and other geological data provide further support. Critical mathematical analysis of orthodox theory is provided throughout the book. The author was until 1970 Professor of Metallurgy at the University of Utah and is widely known for his contributions to leading scientific journals, which, in addition to those concerning his speciality, include articles on solid-state physics, geophysics, electro-thermodynamics, ion-exchange and quantum mechanics. DE SANTILLANA, G.& H. VON DECHEND: Hamlet's Mill: An Essay on Myth and the Frame of Time (MacMillan, 1970) An exploration of the origins of human knowledge in the archaic, pre-literate world. The authors utilise a huge range of sources to establish that the world's great myths have a common origin, that the places referred to in the myths are not on earth but in the heavens, and that the actions therein are those of celestial bodies. ...
