71. Unusual Wave [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 122: Mar-Apr 1999 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Unusual Wave January 14, 1998. Indian Ocean. Aboard the m.v. Oriental Bay, enroute Port Klang to Suez. "At 2230 UTC the vessel was on a course of 269 at 23 knots when a line was observed on the radar at a range of 3 n mile, travelling from northwest to southeast at an estimated speed of 15 knots, as indicated on the sketch. The line was observed to be a wave. "It was about 10 minutes after the first sighting that the vessel passed over the wave, which was approximately 4 m [13 feet high, and she heeled 5 to port while the autopilot deviated 3 off course. At the time of the event, there was a low swell of 1.0 m from 320 and the sea was 0.5 m from 360. The current was estimated to be 2.5 knots running to the west." (Talbot, A.P.; "Unusual Wave ...
72. Pre-Columbiana [Science Frontiers Website]
... , Newfoundland, such early visitations are denied by mainstream archeology. Yet, there are hints everywhere that both the Atlantic and Pacific were crossed frequently before Columbus set sail. One class of pre-Columbiana consists of linguistic, artistic, literary, and fossil evidence that distinctive New World plants were known in the Orient well before 1492. C.L. Johannessen, a geographer at the University of Oregon, demonstrates in a long article that both India and China knew and exploited a surprisingly wide range of American plants. For example, many carvings in Indian temples depict maize, which originated in the New World. A similar situation prevails for the sunflower and a many-seeded New World fruit called "annonas." Sunflowers and maize are also prodigious seed producers, suggesting that these three plants were valued as fertility symbols and may not have been consumed as food. The pre-Columbian Pacific was a twoway conduit for plants and even a few animals. For example, the Old World contributed black-boned chickens, cotton, and coconuts to the New World. As for China, Johannessen has gathered evidence ...
73. The Ups And Downs Of Plate Tectonics [Science Frontiers Website]
... nee "continental drift") was considered pseudoscience. In fact, it was possible to find authors in mainstream geological journals complaining the geology could not call itself a science if it permitted ideas like continental drift to run rampant. Of course, the situation has now been reversed as some scientists plead that data contradicting plate tectonics should no longer be accepted for publication! Happily, at least one publication is still open to heretics. In a 1997 number of New Concepts in Global Tectonics, we find S. Keshav, at Bombay's Indian Institute of Technology, asserting that plate tectonics is a "myth that has paralyzed our thinking." And he gives some reasons for his view: Plate tectonics incorporates many physically impossible processes, such as sediment subduction; i.e., soft sediments should be scraped off plates as they dive beneath the continents. Plate tectonics does not completely explain the ophiolites (rocks resembling bits of ocean crust that are sometimes found in embarrassing places (far inland). Plate tectonics has difficulty accounting for some mountain belts; i.e., those ...
74. Puzzling Partitions [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 132: NOV-DEC 2000 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Puzzling Partitions The Indian mathematician S. Ramanujan's has been called a "magical genius" because his remarkable insights seemed to come out of the blue-- like magic. We have not neglected Ramanujan in this newsletter( SF#53 and here ), and now we spotlight him again. First, a quick primer on a fascinating mathematical byway called "partitions." A partition is a way in which a whole number can be expressed as the sum of positive integers. For example, 5 can be partitioned in seven ways: 5 4+ 1 3+ 2 3+ 1+ 1 2+ 2+ 1 2+ 1+ 1+ 1 1+ 1+ 1+ 1+ 1 The number 4 has only five partitions. Check it out. Historically, ordinary mortals saw no patterns in the number of partitions possessed by the parade of numbers until Ramanujan came along. He had in front ...
75. Flawed Search [Kronos $]
... it involves lunar observations. Again, the misuse of archaeology undermines attempts to prove alignments: Krupp's use of Figsbury Ring, at least 1,000 years later in date than Stonehenge, as a foresight for the southern major standstill moonrise, is inexcusable. Eddy's chapter on North America is the only one in the book where a sensible caution appears. His balanced view of other's work is exemplified by his regard for the archaeology as equally important as the astronomy in the analysis of the Chaco Canyon structures. His own work on the Indian medicine wheels is a model of careful and logical procedure. The same cannot be said of Aveni's chapter on Mesoamerica, where sites a millennium and several hundred miles apart are grouped on the basis of their similar orientation. The use in this chapter of words like "nearly", "close to" and "approximate" when describing alignments destroys their credibility. The claimed alignment of Teotihuacan on the setting of the Pleiades turns out to be "within I degree" of this event, a difference representing a sizeable slice of ...

(Schilling, Govert; "Through the Looking Glass," New Scientist, p. 16, April 28, 2001.) Comment. Not only is a crater missing at the Tunguska site, but no one has been able to positively identify the immense impact crater that we suppose must have been excavated when untold numbers of tektites rained down upon Australia, Southeast Asia, and the Indian Ocean about 800,000 years ago.

77. The Stealth Catastrophe [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 136: JUL-AUG 2001 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects The Stealth Catastrophe Recently, as geologists reckon time-- only 800,000 years ago-- Australia, Southeast Asia, and the eastern Indian Ocean were bombarded by untold numbers of small, oddly shaped stones called "tektites." New finds of tektites have expanded the strewn field of these Australasian tektites to include part of China. It now appears that about 30% of the earth's area was subjected to this stony bombardment. It is inescapable that the Australasian-tektite fall was a major event in the earth's history. But where are other signs of this great catastrophe? The present consensus holds that the Australasian tektites originated when a large celestial body slammed into our planet somewhere in Southeast Asia. The energy of the impact splashed droplets of molten rock into the atmosphere, where they were shaped aerodynamically and then fell as tektites. The extent of the immense Australasian-tektite strewn field implies a hard-to-miss crater about 100 kilometers in diameter ...

Bioenergy-- A Burning Issue Is there a specifically biological form of energy? This apparently simple and innocuous question has caused the loss of reputation of more scientists than any other in the past two hundred years. Chinese and Indian medicine have for centuries involved the central idea of meridians running through the human body along which biological energy travels, and energy centres through which this bioenergy passes and is distributed. Just why established medical science should be so firmly opposed to the idea of energy meridians in the human body is a mystery, especially as there is considerable strong experimental evidence for acupressure and acupuncture, published in journals such as The British Medical Journal and the British Journal of Anaethaesia. The first Western scientist to take the ideas of Eastern medicine seriously and to conduct experiments with them was Austrian psychotherapist Wilhelm Reich. Among ...
79. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... , if I would have been asked what it is about, I would have referred to the short section “Tao” in W.in C.- By the way, you should have paid some attention to this religious philosophy that centered its interest on the North, but you omitted to do so.- The fear that the terrestrial axis may change its direction- and in historical times it did change was, in my view, the reason for preoccupation with the North Star as you can also read in some of the American Indian legends quoted in WiC. Your second thesis deals with Saturn referred to in ancient sources as “sun.” Nobody who studies the mythology of Saturn could have missed this peculiarity and in my old notes, dating from the 1940 ’ s I have many quotes that escaped your attention. On the other hand, you have many references that are not in my files. I had my explanation for Saturn being called “sun”; I shall return to this. Up to this point the merit of your work is mainly ...
