92. The Reality of Extinctions [Aeon Journal $]
... . Yet there have been equally dramatic events, some close to our own times. To name a few of the better known ones: A mere ten or eleven thousand years ago, something like 70% of the large animals of North America were wiped out. In South America, the percentage was even higher. The mastodon, lion, saber-toothed tiger, giant armadillo, all simply disappeared from the face of these continents. They were not alone. At much the same time, in Europe, the woolly rhino and the mammoth became extinct; likewise the Irish deer and Irish sheep, and very nearly the European horse. At that time, the traditional end of the last Ice Age in Europe, man was still living in scattered winter caves, so it does not seem logical to blame a voracious human appetite for these disappearances. If we step back an additional ten thousand years, we come upon an extinction event which accounted for 90% of the giant marsupials in Australia. Again, over-hunting carries no logic as an explanation; the Aborigines already ...
93. Bookshelf [SIS C&C Review $]
... admit that "Bethell's criticism applies to much of the technical literature in evolutionary theory, especially in the abstract mathematical treatments that consider evolution only as an alteration in numbers, not as a change in quality". However, his defence rests on the idea that "certain morphological, physiological, and behavioral traits should be superior a priori as designs for living in new environments. These traits confer fitness by an engineer's criterion of good design, not by the empirical fact of their survival and spread. It got colder before the woolly mammoth evolved its shaggy coat." Gould hence redefines "fitness" as "the ability... to survive in new environments", and has not really got to the heart of this Darwinian paradox. The choice as an illustration of the mammoth, a very "fit" creature conspicuous for its non-survival, is a bad mistake. Gould puts on a brave face for his defence of natural selection as the mechanism that shaped life in all its diversity, but he does not really convince. He blunders again when he ...

... matter' [156. Its depth in some places 'has always caused even the most open-minded geologists to boggle' [157. The Russians, who have conducted studies on this muck, have in some places drilled down more than 4000 feet without reaching rock bottom [158. Entire forests have been found buried in this area, including plum trees complete with their leaves and fruits [159 and also palm trees and huge exotic ferns [160. Animals are also found buried in this muck, the most notable of which is the mammoth. As George Gaylord Simpson was astute enough to realise, catastrophic events at the end of the Pleistocene were not only much more severe in North than in South America, they also affected a much larger proportion of animals [161. Now here is the puzzle. As one writer put it, 'how do you get that thickness of what is manifestly surface-derived material if it is the result of mere run-off?' [162. As Dolph Hooker says: 'In some areas there are no evidences of former highlands from which sediments ...

... been dated to H. erectus, in Japan half a million years ago; the previous oldest was a site in France from 200,000 to 400,000 years ago. One researcher believes that agriculture started at least 40,000 years ago, to the extent to which people could be called proto-farmers and a rethink has led to the suggestion that Palaeolithic peoples around 30,000 years ago developed sophisticated weaving, basketry and net-making techniques. Plant materials are not preserved as stone tools are and therefore the picture of macho male mammoth hunters may be a distortion; rodent and bird catching with nets is probably far nearer the truth. Evidence from North America indicates that when mammoth meat was obtained during the ice age people developed the first refrigeration technique by weighing down chunks of meat with stone-filled intestines tied to poles in icy ponds over winter. Tracking the Y-chromosome National Geographic Oct. 99, 'geographica' and p. 69 A mutation of the Y-chromosome of an early American around 20,000 years ago has led to around 90% of South American indigenous males ...

... , in the general region of Armenia. It is proposed that this was because the ground was very slow to regain sufficient warmth. In Talmudic literature one can find the following parallel comment: According to BR 32.11, and the parallels cited, by Theodor, Noah suffered very much from the cold.... 8 This Talmudic source is also in harmony with Theory Number Two. In Northern Siberia several dozen quick-frozen mammoths have been discovered, as were two-horned rhinoceroses. Digby was at the site during the exhumation of the Beresovka mammoth. He reported buttercups and sedges in its last breakfast-- still in its mouth. He also reported that this excavation occurred at a river bank, where waters had begun to erode the animal remains. Above the mammoth was a layer of brownish ice, 10 to 15 feet thick. Brown ice is loaded with sediments such as a semi-global flood would have produced. It is known that today there is ice, 8000 feet deep, resting on bedrock 5000 feet below sea level, on Antarctic bedrock. The upper half ...

... . A huge area of them, called the Australasian strewn field, dates from 770,000 years ago, but so far no relevant crater has been found. Methane catastrophe waiting to happen? Science Frontiers No. 115, May-Jun 97, p. 3 The methane burps from gas hydrate reservoirs mentioned in Monitor in C&CR 1997:1 could be of world wide significance. Apparently the reservoirs are truly colossal and if a meteorite hit one the amount of methane which would be released could change the world's climate. A Mammoth catastrophe National Geographic, August 1997, geographica About 11,300 years ago large numbers of animals including horses, camelids, deer, birds, fish and turtles, and at least seven mammoths, were suddenly engulfed by mud or ash from a volcanic eruption in a valley in Mexico. Some of the mammoth bones appear to bear marks of human tools. Natural coal fires New Scientist 9.8.97, p. 49 Much of the mountainous country in northern China, from Manchuria to the Kazakh border, is covered in coal seams which ...

... , retrojecting the small but perceptible increase in Carbon 14 in the atmosphere under uniformitarian conditions today, come out with a figure of zero-carbon in the air some 13,000 year ago. [19 Like every radiochronometric process, with its half-life calculations, radiocarbon decay is figured at a declining exponential rate. The mathematics of exponentialism subjects the process to time collapse; exponential rates in chronology are an unreliable ally of uniformitarian rates in biostratigraphical measures of time and of macrochronism generally. In the clamor of debate over the significance of the multitudinous mammoth (and antelope, rhinoceros, and other) fossils of recent times, the long spread of Carbon 14 dates assigned to the finds has attracted attention, but their meaning for carbondating has been ignored. If frozen mammoth finds are dated from 44,000 years ago at one extreme to 2500 years ago at the other extreme, an impossible pattern of climatic changes has to be developed, all allowing some of the cadavers to persist unthawed during the whole period, while letting others cadavers give all signs of eating warm-weather plants just ...

... a need of a radical reduction of age for this period in history? The data published by Libby concerning Egypt have not even one case of New Kingdom. You, however, refer to "puzzling exceptions" and cases "when a valid radiocarbon date disagrees radically with an archaeological date." Are objects from Egypt or from the Middle or Near East in this category? A second question: Did it occur that the method revealed a late date (say, 3500 years ago) for the survival of animals like mastodon or mammoth? I would appreciate it very much if you could give me the required information. Very sincerely, IMMANUEL VELIKOVSKY March 12, 1954 DEAR DR. VELIKOVSKY: It is impossible for me to give an intelligent answer to the questions concerning Egypt in your letter of February 23rd because I know very little about Egyptian archaeology. I suspect that no dates for objects from the New Kingdom in Egypt have been determined. The material that I do know of was presumed to be the oldest obtainable which, at the same time, could ...
