... rates of radioactive decay. But the theory of evolution is a belief without evidence. It does not itself constitute evidence for vast ages; it presupposes them. Thus everything depends on radiometric dating; and radiometric dating, in turn, is only as good as its assumptions, the most fundamental of which is the assumption that the velocity of light is invariable. According to theoretical physics the velocity of light ( 'c') need not be a fundamental constant. Were it to have been higher in the past, the rate at which isotopes decayed would also have been higher, and the ages produced by radiometric dating would be proportionately inflated. Whether c was in fact higher ...

202. Perception and Ancient Astronomy [Journals] [Horus]
... From: Horus Vol. 2 No. 2 (Summer 1986) Home | Issue Contents Perception and Ancient Astronomy David Griffard Introduction It is difficult for the average city-dweller to visualize the complexity and beauty of the night sky. Ground-glow from street lights, advertising signs and traffic coupled with pollution-laden air all but blot out the view of external Nature. Only the light of the planets and of the very brightest stars, a select minority among the vast number visible to the human eye, manage to penetrate this man-made collective scotoma and serve to remind us that our natural environment is twofold; terrestrial and extraterrestrial. Our ancestors suffered no such loss of perception and saw the whole of ...

... Nippur found in a wooden box collections of semiprecious cut stones of the Kassite period, apparently assembled for recutting about a thousand years later.[3 ] Another example of upward migration is a late Sumero-Akkadian cylinder seal found by the Anatolian Expedition of the Oriental Institute in the Roman layer at the Alisar mound. Probably the piece had come to light during the digging of a foundation trench or a refuse pit and had been kept by the ancient finder as a curio. On the other hand, a typical Sassanian seal had migrated downward into the Phrygian layer at Alisar, either as the result of leveling activities or simply by falling through a woodchuck hole. Therefore, one should be ...

... of paying two prolonged visits to Hatshepsut's mortuary temple at Deir el-Bahri, and of studying at first-hand the reliefs depicting the Queen's expedition to Punt. In Velikovsky's view, these provide a record of the Queen of Sheba's journey to the court of Solomon. However, certain features of the reliefs led me to doubt this interpretation, and in the light of these doubts I subsequently undertook a detailed examination of Velikovsky's proposed identification. The present paper expresses the scepticism which resulted from that study. It should be stressed, however, that in this paper I am not questioning Velikovsky's revised chronology for the XVIIIth Dynasty. That chronology stands or falls on other grounds than the identification discussed here. ...

205. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... theory started by a misunderstanding of his own writing. At least the blatant self-contradiction in his 1905 essay (that established the special theory') splits the work into two different theories. Maybe if the rumour of this gets around the theorists will come to re-think relativity. The first third of his essay explains how to synchronise distant clocks by light signals and defines the relation of the movement of light to the Earth, or the stationary system'. By applying the principle of the constancy of the velocity of light in the stationary system' he mathematically demonstrates that anyone moving relatively to the Earth will have the illusion that his several clocks are no longer in synchrony with each other ...

... positrons. I am suggesting that the electron is made up of particles smaller than the electron, the positron too, which is the same size as the electron, but with a positive charge. I am suggesting that the electron and positron are made up of smaller particles moving more or less in circles at speeds faster than the speed of light in radii 10-15 m, and in this movement they are capable of polarisation just like the hydrogen atom is capable of polarisation or the water molecule is capable of polarisation. I am also suggesting, and mathematically you can say that an electron moving at a very slow speed, it turns out to be 10-12m/sec,- there ...

207. Non-velocity Redshifts [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... blueshifted toward shorter ones. The Doppler effect explains how these shifts occur because of relative motions of the source and the observer along the line of sight. Approach causes a blueward shift and recessional a redward one. Scientists have long believed that only the Doppler effect or Gravity as described by Einstein could account for wavelength shifts in the spectrum of light as it travels through space. Where neither factor applies, scientists have always assumed spectral invariance-the spectrum remains the same no matter how far the light travels. This is the case with ordinary sources-called "Lambertian" after Johann Heinrich Lambert - such as the blackbody radiation from stellar surfaces. In the past few years, however, experiments have ...

... this way?"(7 ) The answer was revealed at Alamogordo. On July 16, 1945, at 5:29 in the morning, the quietude of the New Mexico desert was suddenly and rudely disrupted by the detonation of an atomic explosion. To the onlookers, the sight was both awesome and strangely beautiful. "The fierce light that followed, almost blinding in spite of . . . closed eyes, was impossible to describe. There was no frame of reference from anything the observers had experienced before. In a brief moment, the light within twenty miles was equal to several suns at midday."(8 ) As far away as Albuquerque, Sante Fe ...

... projection of Freud's identification with Moses. During analysis, that which is emphasized in the early sessions is often meant to mask the unconscious impulses; so it was no accident that Freud introduced his essay with the words, "to deny a people the man whom it praises as the greatest of its sons is not a deed to be undertaken lightly". (12) In Velikovsky's further analysis, Freud's "degradation" of his traditions was "almost his last testament": On the eve of his departure from a long life he had to blast the Hebrew God, demote his prophet, and glorify an Egyptian apostate as the founder of a great ...

... hidden batteries compared to which the heaviest guns are mere bagatelles. Smoke, flame, and lightning emerge from the orifice, and then, if the eruption be of major character, rocks, stones, ashes, and dust are belched out of the crater and hurled high in the heavens, the rocks often projected considerable distances, while the light dust floats in the atmosphere for a long period and over a wide area. Vesuvius has been known to hurl rocks 3600 feet above its summit, and Mount Cotopaxi is credited with having expelled a mass estimated at 200 tons a distance of rather more than 10 miles. On the other side of the account the eruption of Tomboro, ...
