51. Doomsday: The Science of Catastrophe by Fred Warshofsky [Kronos $]
... God plays dice with the cosmos" and p. 1 [sic, where he is correctly quoted as saying "I cannot believe that God plays dice with the cosmos". My other criticisms of the author, having to do with inclusions and exclusions, are probably matters more of personal preference than of scholarly validity. Nonetheless, I find it regrettable that, having discussed the catastrophist views of the fundamentalist writer Donald Patten, he does not balance them with the views of less evangelical theorists, such as Ignatius Donnelly or Charles Hapgood, the latter of whom won praise from Einstein. I am also surprised that he never mentions the so-called "doomsday machine". Though its very existence remains unproved, it is perennially rumored to be part of the atomic arsenal of one or more of the nations belonging to the "nuclear club". This machine is an automated device supposedly enabling its possessor to strike back with devastating effect at a military foe even if all of its own population has previously been exterminated in a surprise attack! I regret, finally, ...

Open Questions in Relativistic Physics edited by F. Selleri (1998, $25 00) This book is a collection of papers from a conference on Relativistic Physics held in Athens in 1997.

Hapgood (1999 reprint of 1970 2nd edition, $16 95) A classic catastrophe book, this investigates extinction and other phenomena from the Ice Age period and concluded that Earth's Crust has shifted many times and, therefore, the position of the poles. ...

... subjects including the Thera eruption, evidence for volcanic eruptions in ice cores and the Plagues of Egypt. He also worked with John Dayton. David was a man of broad interests and it was not a surprise to see his name surface in publications of other organisations such as the British Society of Dowsers. Recently he had become interested in the 'electric universe' theory of Laszlo Kortvelyessy. Derek Allan Sadly Derek Allan died in early 2001, after a long battle with cancer. Derek had a longstanding interest in catastrophism, collaborating with Charles Hapgood and Bernard Delair. An article by him on 'Arctic Anomalies' is in preparation for publication and a full obituary will appear in the next issue of C&CR. Daniel Kline (1917-2000) I was first introduced to Daniel Kline through his book Thomas Young Forgotten Genius (Vidan Press, Cincinnati, 1993, reviewed in C&CW 1993:2 pp. 31-32). Like his hero, Dan was a man of many parts. He was one of seven children from a poor family in Philadelphia but by hard ...
55. Sunk Without Trace? [SIS C&C Review $]
... a geological convulsion. However, detailed modern research has shown, apparently beyond doubt, that there is no submerged land mass of suitable size which could have sunk below the surface of the Atlantic at the time indicated by Plato (see C&C Workshop 1987:2, pp. 12-15). That has prompted some to look further afield for Atlantis. In When the Sky Fell, sub-titled In Search of Atlantis, Canadian librarians, Rand and Rose Flem-Ath combine Plato's Atlantis story with Charles Hapgood's theories of catastrophic crustal displacement. Hapgood was impressed by ancient maps, said to be copies of even older maps, which appeared to show the Antarctic continent free of ice. This, he argued, revealed that Antarctica had moved into the polar regions as a result of a crustal displacement, within the period of human civilisation. The Flem-Aths' main thesis is that Atlantis was Lesser Antarctica, the smaller of the two main land masses making up the Antarctic continent. Hence it did not so much sink beneath the waves as become covered by a thick layer of ...

... sort of explanation as to why is not frozen. Two theories have been proposed: (1) Heat from the earth's interior has kept it from freezing; (2) The lake has not yet had time enough to freeze after a temperate period that ended about 5,000 years ago.

... 'Velikovsky's investigation into the true cause of this so-called 'Dark Age' ranks with the best of his work and may well prove to be the most convincing of the Ages in Chaos series'.

59. Earth, the Magic Top [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 6: February 1979 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Earth, the magic top The Journal of Physics is a most respectable British scientific publication, but in a recent issue we find an article that would warm the heart of Ignatius Donnelly, to say nothing of Hapgood, Brown, Velikovsky, and more recent catastrophists. Employing a wide span of data from complex top theory to ancient legend, Warlow suggests that the earth has undergone many violent catastrophes, some of them within the time of man. Flood legends, geomagnetic reversals, tektites, paleoclimatology, salinity crises, and other familiar standbys of the catastrophists force P. Warlow to examine the stability of the earth in the presence of astronomical collisions and near-collisions. He shows that the earth rotates slowly and that, even with the stabilizing equatorial bulge, our planet is rather sensitive to outside forces. It is, he says, like a tippe top or magic top; a 8,000-mile-diameter top that turns over repeatedly ...
60. Bookshelf [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1995 No 2 (June 1995) Home¦ Issue Contents Bookshelf Atlantis- the trail goes cold When the Sky Fell: In search of Atlantis by Rand and Rose Flem-Ath (Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1995, £18 99). Yet another Atlantis book, using Plato, myth and ideas of geological catastrophe to pinpoint the whereabouts of the mythical lost city. This one also uses the catastrophic crustal displacement theories of Charles Hapgood and concludes that there was indeed a race of intelligent seafarers about 12,000 years ago- and the reason no evidence has yet been found is that it is hidden under the ice in Antarctica. Doomsday is almost here Rogue Asteroids and Doomsday Comets by Duncan Steel (John Wiley, 1995, £16 99). Since the Jupiter impacts, the possibility of a similar happening on Earth is being taken very seriously by some. The author, an Australian astronomer, assesses the risks and the damage potential and thinks a world wide observation network and some clever weapons use could yet save the ...
