11. Late Survival Of Mammoths [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 87: May-Jun 1993 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Late Survival Of Mammoths Many a sensational article has been written about how the Siberian mammoth population was deep-frozen by a sudden climate change due to a shift in the earth's poles or some other catastrophic event circa 10,000 years ago. But now, Russian scientist A. Sher and two colleagues claim that a dwarf version of the wooly mammoth survived on Wrangel Island, 120 miles off the Siberian coast until about 3,700 years ago. The Wrangel Island dwarf mammoths stood only about 2 meters high and weighed 2 tons. The British mammoth expert, A. Lister, said he was not really surprised at this discovery, because many islands supported dwarf versions of mainland animals during the Ice Ages.

... , 1963, p. 71). The King James version renders it as "constellations". On the day of the Lord... the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. (The Vulgate has "their brightness".)-- Which invites the comparison: Mars/Maruts: Kesil/kesilim. Sean Mewhinney Ottawa, Ontario PROBLEM, RIDDLE, MYSTERY: A MAMMOTH UPDATE To the Editor of KRONOS: The following material was gleaned while researching a rebuttal to James Oberg's "Cold water on mammoth theory"(1) and adds to the information presented by Dwardu Cardona in his excellent analysis "The Problem of the Frozen Mammoths".(2) In Pole Shift, John White presents a wide-ranging survey of the demise of the mammoths(3) while drawing heavily upon Cardona who, in contrast, addressed selected arguments in Farrand's near classic article "Frozen Mammoths and Modern Geology". ...
13. When The Arctic Was Warm [Science Frontiers Website]
... All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects When The Arctic Was Warm According to the anthropologists' schedule of hominid diffusion across the planet, the Ice Ages blocked most east-west travel at high latitudes until about 12,000 years ago. This date now seems far off the mark. A team of Russian and Norwegian archeologists has located a hominid camp at Mamontovaya Kurya in Russia on the Arctic Circle. Bones of horses, reindeer, and wolves were strewn about this Paleolithic camp. Most important of all, though, was a 4-foot mammoth bone bearing grooves made by sharp stone tools-- a sure sign of human occupation. The mammoth bone has been dated as 36,000 years old. This is the earliest sign of hominid presence in the high Arctic. These grooves on the Mamontovaya Kurya mammoth bones were made with sharp stone tools, but for what purpose? Was primitive notation in use 40,000 years ago? You will notice that we use the word "hominid" rather than human, because the campers may have been Neanderthals. No hominid ...
14. Jupiter, Gold, and the Birth of Athene [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... unearthed in the interior of Bald Mountain near Altaville, in Calaveras County, California. The skull of Bald Mountain was reported to have been found in the shaft of a gold mine, in a layer of auriferous (gold-bearing) gravel, beneath four layers of lava, each separated from the other by four layers of gravel. The skull did not differ in structure or dimensions from the skull of modern man; however, it was fossilized. (5) In the gold-bearing gravel of Calaveras were also unearthed fossilized bones of the mammoth, the great mastodon, the tapir, horse, hippopotamus, rhinoceros and camel, all extinct animals in pre-Columbian America. But geologically the layer in which it was found belongs to the Tertiary, and therefore a great embarrassment was in store for the geologists and evolutionists. They divide the strata according to the fossils found in them and hold that in the Tertiary there could have been no human beings, for it is an age before the advent of man. But we have seen in the case of the Dead Sea that ...
15. Unorthodox evidence from Mexico [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1998:2 (Mar 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents Unorthodox evidence from Mexico Impossible 250,000 Year Old Mammoth Hunters Near the volcano Popocatepetl, 100 miles east of Mexico City, lies a region of badlands famous for over a century for its amazing collection of Ice Age (Pleistocene) faunal remains. In 1935 a young prehistorian, later to be Professor Juan Armenta Camacho, came across the bones of a mammoth eroding in a dry valley. Embedded in the huge leg bone was a flint spear point. Over the next 30 years he amassed a collection of over 3000 fossil bones, many with cut and fracture marks indicating human butchering, including a jaw bone with yet another spear point. The establishment in Mexico City all the time ignored him, declaring without examination that there could be no evidence for human activity. In 1962, outside interest launched an excavation project and a young anthropologist from Harvard came to work with Juan. They found four sites where fossil bones and stone tools occurred together in situ, ...

... University of Glasgow The Hunterian Museum February 26th 1975 Dear Dr. Velikovsky, I expect someone has already drawn your attention to my letter in the New Scientist of last April about mammoth dates but I enclose a copy in case no-one has. For some reason I missed it myself at the time. We are trying to for the nucleus of a society over here for those devoted to studying your ideas rationally. I would like it to be called the Whiston Society after your 17th century predecessor. It is too early yet to tell whether it will get off the ground but our campaign of advertisement has hardly started yet. I have hopes. I do hope that all is well with you and your family and that you are allowing yourself abundant time for finishing your books. Everyone interested to whom I speak asks when we are to see some more! With kind regards, Dr. I. Velikovskky 78 Hartley Avenue, Princeton, New Jersey, USA. Euan MacKie [enclosure New Scientist, 4 April 1974, p. 39 Velikovsky Sir, Regarding ...

... the results of objective research. They prefer to live in their imaginative world. And perhaps all the better for them. Here are some particulars which I noticed among many more which I cannot mention in this letter. Chapter I: I will try to get the publication you refer to concerning the new Alaska finds and those of the Ivory Islands. They are so very much important also for the French paleolithic finds and their chronology. I had before the war in my library a book by Pfigmuller (?) on the Siberain Mammoth finds. But during the German occupation of my house near Paris, most of the books of my library have disappeared or were burned stupidly in my garden by the Gestapo agents. Now I can ? t find many of those books for they are out of print. p. 13, you refer very well to Cuvier ? s views which are too often forgotten nowadays. I feel exactly the same way, I know that those vast crises and cataclysms have occurred during the IV-Ist mill. B.C., but I cannot ...

19. Science Frontiers [SIS Internet Digest $]
... 14.95p. Many other Atlantic islands were once thought to exist, were placed on maps, and then disappeared. The island of Brazil (or Hy Brazil) is one of these phantom islands. Babcock has written an engrossing, scholarly treatise, with many old maps, and hints of pre-Columbian contacts with the New World. Here follow some chapter titles: Atlantis; The Island of the Seven Cities; The Problem of Mayda; Estotiland and the Other Islands of Zeno; The Sunken Land of Buss and Other Phantom Islands. The Mammoth and the Flood: An Attempt to Confront the Theory of Uniformity with the Facts of Recent Geology by H.H. Howorth 1887, 498 pp., $23.50p. In this book, Howorth brought together evidence on recent catastrophic flooding on the earth: the bone caves, the Siberian mammoth carcasses, the masses of fresh moa bones in Australia, and host of other geological and biological puzzles. Most of Howorth's attention, however, is focussed on the mammoths and their recent demise. This book is one of the classics of ...
20. Recent Survival Of The Elephant In The Americas [Science Frontiers Website]
... the elephamt were retained by American Indians. A mastadon was killed, cooked, and eaten by humans in Ecuador circa 1500 BC. Indians told Thomas Jefferson that elephants could still be seen in the region of the Great Lakes. In Florida, a cache of extinct animals, including elephants, was carbon-dated at 2000 BP. Elephant heads are prominent in art and sculpture from Mexico, Central American, and northern South America. (Carter, George F.; "A Note on the Elephant in America," and "The Mammoth in American Epigraphy," Epigraphic Society, Occasional Publications, 18:90 and 18:213, 1989.) Reference.
