101. The New Orthodoxy's Respect for Fact [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... , in the last line of the previous paragraph advised us that Lyell's "fourth (and most important) uniformity has been graciously forgotten", he goes on to say "there is much to be said for Lyell's vision (sic) of steady state". To bolster this statement he brings in attitudes of Medieval Christianity, the stained glass at Chartres Cathedral, Christ and the resurrection of the dead, the New Testament, the Virgin Mary, the burning bush, and lastly Jonah. These represent "directionalism and dynamic constancy - [and] are not irreconcilable." "Geology, too, might seek their creative synthesis." This is from a man who is ...
102. Ancient Calendars [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... . He goes on to describe an astronomical model for a society whose mathematics extended only as far as they could count on their fingers'. He suggests that a spherical pebble might be found (or simulated in clay) and used to test the level of a surface. This would certainly work with a ball bearing and a sheet of glass; but what is the Neolithic equivalent? (This also implies a developed theory of the constant direction of gravity, the concept of sphericity, i.e ., constant radius in three dimensions based on an invisible centre, and the concept of a true plane, etc.) Next a vertical stick was added (straight line ...
103. Forbidden Science by Richard Milton [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the same Melvin Cook who earned so many favourable mentions in Milton's earlier The Facts of Life) which offered a detailed explanation of the cold fusion' experiments, concluding that physical chemistry, not "cold fusion" is the source of the observed heat', with factors such as tritium contamination in the heavy water and the composition of the glass of the test tube playing important (and predictable) roles in the results. (Cook has recounted his role in the cold fusion affair in his book Scientific Prehistory [3 ]. ) However none of this is mentioned in Forbidden Science - a curious oversight by an author who is so critical of others who suppress or ignore contrary ...

Saturn was the only god who was said to have been born; who lived on Earth among men, preaching and teaching; who died; was buried; who descended to the netherworld; who rose from the dead and eventually ascended into heaven. If the tale sounds familiar, ...
107. Confessions of a Cenoist [Journals] [Aeon]
... the distant past. If their histories were packaged in storybooks rather than scientific tomes, their stories would begin with the words: "Once upon a time, long, long ago." The urge of scientists and people overall to push things back in time can be a source of amusement. Classicist Bill Mullen and I once sipped a glass of wine as we savored a common human foible- the tendency of people to turn objects into antiques, to claim one's ancestors were writing poetry while others' forbears were still grunting, and to add a zero or two to geological time-lines. I thought "greybearding" suitably described this bias. Mullen countered with the neologism "primevalize ...
108. The Ark And Tent Of Meeting [Journals] [Aeon]
... eyes and hands, that they were not cutting into the natural mountain side, but into artificial rock. My doubts remained, even as I watched the tunnel increasing in breadth and depth. I took some pieces of the rock out of the tunnel and washed them in the spring. I then examined them with the aid of a magnifying glass in bright sunlight. There was absolutely no doubt that the rock was artificial. It was so hard and compact that it took considerable force to crack it" Dr. Vincent's book is a carefully detailed physical description of the tunnels in question. It gives, however, little more than a rather superficial account of the activities of the ...

... by C, and Figure 5 shows a BTB in the Grand Canyon near Supai (Indian) Village. When two or more BTB's join together, the pattern is designated CTB.

Coupled CTB's are marked once in Figure 1 by D. ii). Single Branch (SB) and Coupled Single Branch (CSB) Tensile Fracture In many cases where a BTB might be expected, the result is, instead, a single branch or SB fracture. Where two or more SBs are joined together it is termed ...
