91. Monitor [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... catastrophist nature. Some of the theories he offers for examination are considered 'outrageous' to the academic mind, but he justifies their selection by adopting the approach of the philosopher Feyeraband, who was an advocate of the setting up of 'incompatible alternatives' in the testing of scientific theories. In looking at causes of terrestrial catastrophism, Dr Huggett identifies three main groups: a). Those involving a shift of the Earth about its axis of spin include Wegener's hypothesis (1929), Hugh Auchinloss Brown (1948; 1967), Charles Hapgood (1958; 1970), Immanuel Velikovsky (1950; 1952; 1955), Peter Warlow (1978; 1982). b). Astronomical pole shifts were proposed by Wegener (1929), Williams (1972; 1975) whose changes in the ecliptic angle were seen as spanning geological ages, and Gallant (1964) who calculated that Earth's axis of spin could be shifted by impacts of meteorites. c). Bombardment hypotheses are numerous and nowadays rather acceptable in academic circles. They include those of Urey, Alvarez ...

... New York, 1967); and The Cosmic Serpent (Faber and Faber, London, 1982) by Victor Clube and Bill Napier. He also mentions Immanuel Velikovsky's writings, but adds that his theory of a close passage by Venus 'is regarded by most astronomers as ridiculous'. Peter Warlow's inverting Earth scenario is, he says, 'a slightly less unpalatable version of the Velikovsky model'. Brown's hypothesis also involves a tumbling Earth, but with the disturbances triggered by the weight of polar ice rather than an external body. Charles Hapgood has modified Brown's model, arguing that only the crust moves, not the whole Earth. The Cosmic Serpent was concerned with the bombardment of Earth by comets, and Huggett devotes 18 pages to discussing evidence for this and possible effects, including the production of superwaves and superfloods. He concludes, "By considering neodiluvialism and fluvialism together, a better understanding of the history of the Earth's surface may be forthcoming. To advocate dogmatically either neodiluvialism or fluvialism is foolish, for both are valid systems of Earth history, and both may ...
93. Letters [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... presses helps. C. Leroy Ellenberger, St Louis, United States Editor's Note. I have been asked by the other members of the Workshop Team to indicate that it is our official policy not to print abusive comments and ad hominem attacks. The Team would appreciate it if the Editor is not accused of undue 'censorship' when merely pursuing our policy in refusing to print such comments. The deletions from Mr Ellenberger's letter printed above, a letter which provides very valuable feedback, are a case in point. -BN CONTACT 'Professor Charles Hapgood considered that "every advance of science was the product of many minds working together." Recent personal experience has proved that comments or opinions on subjects by correspondents even when these are quite outside their specialty, can switch thought onto another circuit, resulting in different and rewarding conclusions. This is interdisciplinarianism in action. Any member wishing to try the method out on any subject of their choice excepting chronology and history, is invited to write to me at the address below for a discussion of problems from the position of another viewpoint ...

... however, that magma will also melt in larger quantities than average if it is 'wet'. If the Earth's crustal movements are indeed driven by convection currents then this source of added water could occur where cool slabs of crust subduct at the margins of oceans. This led to the observation that such abnormal dense, cold masses appear to lie largely in the equatorial region which is no coincidence because the Earth's axis would tend to shift so that the equator is closest to the densest masses. (Note the theories of Auchincloss Brown and Hapgood that such shifts happened catastrophically when a critical build up of ice occurred at the poles. Could such catastrophic shifts occur in response to the impact of a large body adding mass to an area of crust nearing critical point through slower tectonic processes?) As islands such as the Azores can therefore be formed in areas of denser, cold crust, it is suggested that this might explain the 2000 km. journeys made by the Green Sea Turtle from Brazil to Ascension island to breed. Islands originally close to the coast, 80 ...

96. Much Ado about Tippe Top (Vox Populi) [Kronos $]
... pole shifting of this nature is the relatively small equatorial bulge that makes the Earth deviate from a sphere. How much resistance to pole shifting does this "bicycle tire" provide? Complications prevent a simple answer, the most important being the fact that the bulge is caused primarily by the rotation. If the pole did move to Wynnewood and stay, the equatorial bulge would presently move to the new equator. The manner in which the bulge would move and how long it would take to do so are both open to question. Hapgood (The Path of the Pole), who was referenced in the Forum discussion, developed a particularly good understanding of the implications of all this, and further suggested that the solid skin of the Earth might under some conditions slip around on the fluid center without requiring movement of the spin axis or even the central portion of the Earth, including the bulge. Ellenberger and Slabinski have partially dealt with another related matter, also very important. The Velikovskian problem requires that the Earth turn over in the period of one day, ...

100. Instantaneous Shifts of the Poles [Aeon Journal $]
... . Gravity acts center to center. Gravity, center to center, cannot cause a flywheel rotation. (Earth's rotational flywheel kinetic energy= 25.89 x 10 28 Nm.). How did this happen? The proffering of mathematics concerning a semi-fluid gyroscope can be of great value. However, a hasty assumption related to velocity can lead to questionable conclusions. Patten and Windsor have offered a better explanation of planetary rotation, and magnetic field inversion, one that is far superior to that of uniformitarian dogma from which scientists, including Charles Hapgood, have been trying to extricate themselves. [2 A far more reasoned cosmogony of the Solar System is sorely needed. The model presently adhered to ignores too much. Flavio Barbiero Replies: Rhodes' critique seems to be supportive of my theory since, after all, his criticisms do not question its basic mechanism, but are instead focused on a number of issues which, although important in their own light, are merely marginal to the specific context of the theory. Even so, I welcome them as a constructive contribution ...
