31. The Impossible Dinosaurs [Articles]
... The Impossible Dinosaurs Ted Holden A careful study of the sizes of the giant dinosaurs creatures and of what it would take to deal with such sizes in our world, the felt effect of gravity being what it is now, indicates that something was massively different in the world which these creatures inhabited. A look at sauropod dinosaurs as we know them today requires that we relegate the brontosaur, once thought to be one of the largest sauropods, to welterweight or at most middleweight status. Fossil finds dating from the 1970's dwarf him. The Avon field Guide to Dinosaurs shows a brachiosaur (larger than a brontosaur), a supersaur, and an ultrasaur juxtaposed, and the ultrasaur ...
32. BBC Horizon [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... it would all end. [. .. ] After 5 years of searching Saul and his team had found 42 supernovae. Narrator: They were seeing something quite extraordinary. The supernovae were 20% dimmer than expected. This meant that they were much further away in the universe than they should have been according to the known laws of gravity. Narrator: They could not believe what they were seeing. They knew the universe should be slowing down in its expansion, that gravity should be tugging on it, pulling it in, but they were seeing something that defied the known laws of physics and all their expectations. Narrator: The universe was speeding up, not slowing ...
33. The Riddle of the Earth [Books]
... have been subjected. Light lavas such as felspath are glassy and filamentous. The basaltic or heavier lavas are more solid, compact and dense with fewer or smaller pores. Basaltic lavas nevertheless often produce very perfect crystals of augite or leucite as have been found at Stromboli, Etna (Monte Rossi), Monte Albano, etc. The specific gravity of felspar to augite, hornblende, and titaniferous iron, is the average proportion Of 4 to 5. Of these two classes we have the following sub-divisions. 36A. Felspar. (a ) Rocks of felspar with occasional quartz crystals and more frequently mica, are denominated trachyte. (b ) Common trachyte displays generally a coarse granitoidal ...

35. Henry H. Bauer and Immanuel Velikovsky [Books]
... as though he understands it. His tone is that of one who is discussing subjects with which he is familiar, yet a close look at what he says he is not competent to carry on such discussion. ' (p . 121) Bauer is here commenting on V's little-known Cosmos Without Gravitation, in which he defends the view that gravity is electromagnetic. On the basis of this book alone, [actually it is more of a pamphlet], Bauer writes, I would not hesitate to characterize the author as a crank or a charlatan. '" (13) Can anyone believe that calling Velikovsky crank, crackpot, pseudoscientist, ignoramus, arch dogmatist, charlatan, ...
36. Comments on Electric Stars [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... proportional to its mass - which in turn is determined by the measured gravitational attraction of the sun for the Earth, I believe we have a problem there too. As I mentioned in a more recent post, "our physics is lacking in some crucial areas." To put it bluntly, I do not believe that Einstein's view of gravity as curved space is correct or even helpful. There is an alternative classical model which shows great promise and relates the inertial and gravitational mass to induced electrostatic dipoles in nucleons. That means that the gravitational "constant', G, is neither constant nor universal. If that is so, we do not know the mass of the ...
37. Flow Slips, Ocean Bottom Currents and Subaqueous Dunes [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... much less material, Marshall provides a plan (Fig 1) which shows the maximum distance of the leading edge to be 650m. At that time this type of displacement was considered unusual, and Marshall wrote of a new coastal feature due to seismic action" (p . 86). Realising that this phenomenon was not due to ordinary gravity slip, he introduced the term "flow slip ", and commented: "It will be noticed that a distinction is made between flow slips and the ordinary slips that may be ascribed to gravity" (p . 89). Noticing newly-formed vertical cracks in some of the cliff faces, Marshall reasoned that flow slip was initiated subsequent ...
38. Electric Stars in a Gravity-Less Electrified Cosmos [Journals] [SIS Review]
... at Lethbridge University in May 1974, and is an Associate Editor of Kronos. He is currently working on a book on the history of the solar system with Professor Alfred de Grazia. Many problems are clarified and many concepts, such as "black holes", are found to be unnecessary, when we assume that electricity, rather than gravity, is the major force governing the working of the Universe. In an electrical Universe processes would happen much faster and the catastrophic events envisaged by Immanuel Velikovsky would be likely. This article is based on the talk given by Dr Milton at a meeting of the Society on "Aspects of Catastrophism", in April 1980*, and ...

40. Our Universe: Unlocking its Mysteries [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... points out that plasma physics shows us that planets can interact electrically if they are within each other's protective plasma sheaths (magnetospheres). Electrical repulsion that is alternatively felt (when planets' plasma sheaths intersect) and then not felt (when the sheaths do not intersect) could circularize orbits relatively quickly. In addition there is strong evidence that gravity and mass itself is dependent on electrical charge. Dinosaurs Are Impossible in Today's Gravity: Another question that relates to the enigma of how Earth is different today from ancient times is the size of the giant dinosaurs. Ted Holden concludes that, given what we now know about mass to muscle ratio, there is no way those huge beasts ...
