81. A Personal Report on, and Irreverent Look at, the World Conference 'Planetary Violence in Human History' Portland, Oregon, January 3-5, 1997 [SIS C&C Review $]
... 5th/4th centuries BC, their classification as Bronze Age needs to be given up, reminding me of Eric Aitchison's remark: 'There is no such thing as the Bronze Age'! Panel Discussion: 'Catastrophe and Planetary Motions'. Moderator: Roger Wescott. Panel: Bass, Flem-Ath, Holden, Rose, Van Flandern Rand Flem-Ath hopes to organise an expedition to Antarctica. He mentioned an article in Dec. 1985 Scientific American on the Crustal Displacement Theory. Robert Bass said White's Pole shift theory had been retracted and Velikovsky and Hapgood had been disproved. Flem-Ath insisted Hapgood's maps accurately depict longitude, which the article did not deal with. Einstein was electrified by the theory of crust displacement and wrote ten letters to Hapgood. He made four suggestions to change the research and wrote the introduction to Hapgood's book, though it was published long after his death. There were a number of questions from the floor of which I only remember my own, to Tom Van Flandern: could he not take three zeros off his date for the explosion of the planet in ...

... without any previous warning in the sedimentary record." [8 O'Keefe at the same time accounts for the devastation of fauna at the end of the Eocene (assigned 34 million years ago) by radical climatic change induced by a ring of microtektites and tektites circling the Earth for perhaps a million years and obscuring the Sun [9. Ogden discusses abrupt changes in American forestation about 10.000 years ago, also climatically impelled, with the pattern of pollen deposits in lake sediments moving at the rate of a mile a year [10. Hapgood has compared what arc regarded as 'normal' rates of ice retreat with the results of carbondating, and allows some 60,000 by the one and only 17,000 by the other. He believes that the carbondating must be in error [11. Cracraft, in expatiating upon the "punctuated equilibrium model" of macroevolution, argues that speciation is a "geologically instantaneous phenomenon." [12 There is, in sum, a growing body of paleontology and geology that perceives abruptness of change as a feature of natural history ...

84. Before the Day Breaks(1) -- A Perspective [The Velikovskian $]
... He advised Velikovsky to make the scientists' behaviour public, calling the action of Velikovsky's opponents "worse than the Oppenheimer case."(24) Einstein considered Harlow Shapley's behaviour as explainable, but not excusable: "This is the intolerance and arrogance, together with brutality, which one often finds in successful people, but especially [in successful Americans."(25) All this notvithstanding, Einstein rejected interplanetary collisions to explain the geological evidence pertaining to the end of the Ice Age. He had received the work of Charles Hapgood, which suggested that the giant ice caps at the poles could grow so massive that, by their off-centered position with respect to the geographic poles, they had caused the entire crust of the Earth to catastrophically slip over the mantle. Einstein emphasised to Velikovsky that this terrestrial effect would explain Velikovsky's catastrophes. Thereafter, Einstein returned the files of Earth in Upheaval, convinced that the proof of "sudden" changes...is quite convincing and meritorious. If you had done nothing else but to gather and present, in a clear ...
85. Geomagnetic Reversals? [SIS C&C Review $]
... Earth that moves relative to the rotation axis. Evidence of glaciation at the current equator and of fossil coral at the poles has been taken as evidence that plate tectonic motions have carried the various parts of the crust through appropriately large excursions. Studies of polar wander have associated magnetic polar wander with wander of glaciated regions, but these have been rapid movements on a geological time scale. Moving the whole Earth provides a better fit with the data than does the concept of plate drift alone, as Gold (1955), Wegener, Hapgood and others have pointed out (Sullivan 1977). Furthermore, the extent of glaciation in the recent ice ages was not uniformly increased about the pole but is best described as a displacement of the polar cap. The boundary is roughly delimited by the East Siberian and Laptev Seas at 70 N, great Britain at 55 N and the Great Lakes of North America at 40 N. The limit is an approximate circle through these points and centred on Baffin Bay at about 75 N, 60 W. It is seemingly not a ...
... corrected and refined, and if further research indicates the same disturbances occurred on a global basis --which it may not --then we must seek a unified theory to explain the stresses in rock strata which must have been responsible for the tectonic upheavals. "I stress the fact that this is all yet to be proven archaeologically. The present survey does not cover much of the pertinent evidence from the wider range of time and geography. The tremendous collection of literary and folkloric references made by Velikovsky and others, like the researches reported upon by Hapgood, indicate the possibility, however, that disturbances may well have been a common human experience within the relatively recent past." Baity was immediately followed by Professor De Grazia, who pointed out the fact --difficult for many in the audience to believe --that there has been no systematic examination of the various ash layers at archaeological sites around the world to determine the nature of the ash. De Grazia argued that at the one site he investigated in detail --Schliemann's Troy --an important ash layer shows clear signs of being the end result of ...
87. Catastrophism and the Mammoths - I (Vox Populi) [Kronos $]
... Education 31, 1983, pp. 135-38; see also R. Schadewald, The Skep. Inq. 8: 1, Fall 1983, p p. 22-35 and R. A. Moore, Creation/Evolution XI, 1983, pp. 1-43. With respect to Hapgood's polar migrations, they would not be expected to leave an imprint in the ice caps. Although fast in geological terms, their rate was so slow that Earth's shape would adjust itself as the migration occurred, leaving the ice unaffected. However, even Hapgood admitted that the evidence for these three shifts was sketchy at best [The Path of the Pole, p. 40. The last one was motivated as a means to explain the melting of the glaciers at the end of the last ice age, but it is now understood that a pole shift is not necessary. The scientific consensus is that polar wandering has been nil for the past 200 million years [D. L. Anderson, Science 223, 27 Jan. 1984, pp. 347-55. Regarding Velikovsky's advance claims ...

... functioning, or at least designed to be when built, there can be no other conclusion than that tectonic uplift has taken place. Moreover, the present slow uplift of 1cm per year cannot account for more than 10 metres of this: we are therefore looking at either a much faster rate of steady uplift at some time as recently as 1000 AD, or some very rapid episodic activity such as that in evidence for c.1100 AD. This evidence, and the conclusion drawn from it, should be considered along with that cited by Hapgood (THE PATH OF THE POLE, 1970) for major tectonic uplifts in the recent history of Peru and Bolivia, and by Posnansky (TIAHUANACU, 1947) that agricultural terraces exist at heights where no crops can grow, and even at the line of eternal snow.

... no physical evidence for a geographic inversion every having happened, what is Ellenberger waiting for- an inscription in God's own handwriting on some granite cliff saying [Upside down text: this way up Fundamentalists will, no doubt, point out that that very inscription is already to hand, in the Bible (Isaiah ch.24 v.1), but, for us lesser mortals, God works in more mysterious ways. Albert Einstein was quite good at figuring out such mysterious ways, by all accounts. In 1953, writing to Prof. Charles Hapgood, Einstein said (in translation): "One can hardly doubt that significant shifts of the crust of the Earth have taken place repeatedly and within a short time." That, I remind you, was at a time when physicists and geologists were saying that "there is neither indication nor even the possibility of continental drift". The indications were there, of course, but the theoretical impossibility was all they could see. Sic transit Ellenberger, perhaps. Peter Warlow, Brentwood, Essex Tippe-top Earth Inversion?- ...

... potatoes and local grains, yet the Incas who dominated the area after AD 1450 were not using them at the time of the Spanish conquest. Waru waru were probably built initially around 1000 BC; traces of the system are also found on the floor of the lake. This report is another indication of the generally advanced state of ancient knowledge. It should be borne in mind also that the lake Titicaca area appears to have undergone considerable uplift since civilised man arrived there (see evidence, for example, in C. H. Hapgood: The Path of the Pole), so perhaps a catastrophic uplift caused the workings to be abandoned and the knowledge to be lost? Unique Uranus? source: New Scientist 19.5.88, p. 35 A simulation experiment indicates that the magnetic field of Uranus could be generated by electrical currents induced in a slushy middle layer under conditions of high temperature and pressure. Conventional scientists have postulated a dynamo theory to account for the magnetic fields of other planets: will we now hear that Uranus is unique? Hairy amber evidence source: ...
