... When scientists arrived on the scene to dig the furry giant out of its icy tomb, they were assailed by the fetid odor of elephant dung. The beast itself, however, was anything but pungent. Dick Mol, A Dutch scientist on the French-led team sent to investigate the discovery, said that when he rubbed his hands "across the thick layer of warm fur, it was like touching a furry, live animal." The magnificent curved tusks were still so fresh that, as Mol put it, they made the mammoth look as if it had been living the day before. Once out of the permafrost, the mammoth was harnessed to a helicopter which, because of its 21-tonne weight, had trouble lifting off. The carcass was dragged for close to 50 meters before it was hoisted into the air. The frozen hulk was then flown to the Siberian town of Khatanga where the process of thawing the specimen commenced, a tricky procedure that had to be carried out with the utmost care in order not to destroy its soft tissue, skin, ...

... general finer debris. Associated with the flints are many echinoderm (sea-urchin) fossils, a "normal" find in the layers of flints found in the upper Cretaceous chalk beds which form the bed rock of this area of the country. On an orthodox basis the Faversham deposits must have been derived from surface breakdown of a chalk bed exposed during the last glaciation. The first orthodox problem of this, and similar deposits, is that they also contain many remains of "Ice Age" mammals. Bones and teeth of rhinoceros, mammoth, bison, deer and horse are found so frequently as to merit no comment. Such animals would not be living in the tundra conditions at the edge of the ice, therefore their remains must have originated from the previous "Interglacial" period when temperate conditions prevailed. Mammoth and bison leg bones obtained from the quarry are not fossilised, yet, apart from breaks, are in a good state of preservation. If they were lying on the surface, to move slowly downhill with frost-shattered surface material, it would be expected ...

... the Somme, Thames, or Severn [river in Wales and England, making timely retreat to the south before the snow and ice set in."* [* Charles Lyell, Antiquity of Man(1863),p. 180.An Argonaut expedition of hippopotami from the rivers of Africa to the isles of Albion sounds like an idyll. In the Victorian cave near Settle, in west Yorkshire, 1450 feet above sea level, under twelve feet of clay deposit containing some well-scratched boulders, were found numerous remains of the mammoth, rhinoceros, hippopotamus, bison, hyena, and other animals. In northern Wales in the Vale of Clwyd, in numerous eaves remains of the hippopotamus lay together with those of the mammoth, the rhinoceros, and the cave lion. In the cave of Cae Gwyn in the Vale of Clwyd, "during the excavations it became clear that the bones had been greatly disturbed by water action." The floor of the cavern was "covered afterwards by clays and sand containing foreign pebbles. This seemed to prove that the ...

... of cosmology in which the gravitational constant G might vary. It is usually thought that a larger G in the past must be associated with a smaller Earth radius; Canuto, however, argues that a larger G in the past implies a larger Earth radius. The converse of this prediction is worth thinking about, namely a smaller G being compatible with a smaller Earth radius. Dr Velikovsky has postulated a smaller G, for example, during the Age of the Dinosaurs.- NATURE 30/4/81, p. 739-43 Mammoth Prejudice Two readers, C. W. Ikin and D. A. Parry, have reported to us some of Adrian Berry's writing on the subject of elephants and mammoths. He wrote: "A vast amount of nonsense has been talked about the extinction of the mammoth. One British 'scientist' recently suggested, for example, that the discovery of dead mammoths in permafrost, with their flesh, and even their cells, intact, was evidence that they were overwhelmed by the sudden onset of an Ice Age- as if ...

... symbolic writing predating the Sumerians and established a solar calendar of 16 months and 365 days. Dr. Thomas has had the advantage of being able to interpret the meaning of ancient inscriptions, such as the circles, zigzags and spirals. At Stonehenge itself the erection of 4 bluestones around 2500 BC indicated a change from Moon worship to Sun worship. The mystery of the Long Man of Wilmington, a massive figure carved into the chalk hillside of southern England, has also been solved; he was a surveyor holding his measuring tools. Mammoth extinctions National Geographic February 1992, geographica; New Scientist 2.5.92, p. 14 A mathematical computer programme run by an archaeologist showing varying population densities of early man and mammoths in North America shows that for thousands of years after the first arrival of men there would be no effect upon the mammoths but when the human population reached a certain critical level the mammoth population would crash in less than 100 years. It is difficult to ascribe their extinction to simple climatic factors as they had survived thousands of years of great fluctuations. Indirect ...

The Extinction of the Mammoths (303pp) by Charles Ginenthal, is a special double-issue of the Velikovskian. Did the mammoths live in Alaska and Siberia during the Ice Age? Pollen research emphatically denies this. Could the bones, tusks, and bodies of mammoths have been buried gradually and preserved in the tundra? Recent studies prove this could not have occurred. Did the poles of the Earth shift, and is there fundamental evidence to prove this? Yes! Plant geography presents solid support that the orientation ...

... and it has been stated that I attribute the modification of species exclusively to natural selection..." whereas he had conspicuously placed, in all editions, the words: "'I am convinced that natural selection has been the main but not the exclusive means of modification." This has been of no avail. Great is the power of steady misrepresentation...' Gould, it seems, carries on the tradition. "It got colder", says Gould, pushing his interpretation of Darwinian evolution, "before the woolly mammoth evolved its shaggy coat."(5) Did it just? Is it not possible, perhaps even probable, that like the peppered moth an unfavourable mutation (the shaggy coat) occurred, was kept down by adverse selection, but kept recurring "as in the case of most genes" until a change in the environment conferred advantage on the mutation and it thus became dominant?(6) (Mind, the shaggy coat may well have been developed as a protection against flies and mosquitoes! Of course, a ...
