71. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... University of Glasgow The Hunterian Museum August 31st 1973 Dear Dr. Velikovsky, Having said in my article in the New Scientist last January that the dating of mammoths was one example of a prediction of yours which did not appear to have been born out by subsequent discoveries most C-14 dates for mammoths being earlier than about 10000 B.C.I feel a strong obligation to bring to your attention three C-14 dates which have just been done on mammoth bone from Bavaria. They appear in Radiocarbon 15 (1973), 1, p. 114. (Kiel university laboratory). The site is Tettenhausen, Bavaria, Germany and the dates were done on fragments of a tusk found in a pit near that town. The dating of a bone should of course date the death of the animal concerned. The dates are: KI.358.031 1620 70 B.C. KI.358.041 2080 80 B.C. KI.358.041 2120 60 B.C. If one uses the tree-ring calibration of Suess the dates fall near the end of the 3rd millennium B.C.--perhaps soon after the end of the Old Kingdom? If ...
72. Frozen mammoths et al. [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1996:1 Home¦ Issue Contents Newsgroups: talk.origins Frozen mammoths et al. From: Dan Hughes, firstname.lastname@example.org Date: 27 Sep 1995 18:16:03 GMT Ok, I took your advice and read the above file re mammoths. Basically, it refuted my contention that the flesh of these animals was well preserved enough to be edible. One of the references it cited was Frozen Fauna of the Mammoth Stepps by R. Dale Guthrie. While I was unable to obtain this source on short notice I was able to get a copy of a review of this book. Interestingly, at the end of the review (by S. David Webb from the Florida Museum of Natural History) is the following quote. "At the end of the Blue Babe project, the latter two (two Finnish palaeontologists) enjoyed a bison stew in Fairbanks, despite its 'strong Pleistocene aroma.'" ...

... various inland lakes (Lake Van, Lake Urmia, the Caspian Sea, etc), and have them compared to modern ocean water for trace minerals. A careful analysis might turn up something interesting. In the same region, the large (1,500 sq. mile) interior lake, Lake Van, with no outlet to any sea, nevertheless contains herring. Perhaps those herring should be genetically mapped and compared to Indian Ocean herring and other sub-species worldwide. Perhaps their ancestors were washed into the Lake Van Basin by the mammoth Flood tides from the Indian Ocean. Iseli wishes to grow the rare amomum plant, found growing only at the Ark site, and have it analyzed for pharmaceutical possibilities- a long shot to be sure. Samples of this plant are growing at this time in his nursery in Oregon. Logic Logic points to the Flood of Noah as essentially a mammoth tidal phenomenon. If so, those tides necessarily would have to come from the 50,000,000 cu. mile Indian Ocean to the south and east. The phrase ...
74. Forum [Pensee]
... reported the results in the Jan. 26 Science (1973).... three specimens of particular interest are dated between 25,000 and 32,000 years old"(1). In order to counter any possible objections to their radiocarbon dates in relation to man, Irving and Harington rejected as improbable the likelihood that an implement could have been made "10,000 years ago from a bone that was then 17,000 years old" and supported their reasoning by pointing out that "two large fragments of mammoth radius and long bone are considered to be artifacts because... they show evidence of having been fractured by heavy blows when fresh; such blows in our judgment could only have been delivered by man" (2). The two scientists further maintain that one of the implements, a caribou bone fresher, "is evidence for a sophisticated bone-working technology in the New World considerably older than the 15,000 years postulated by 'Müller-Beck" (3). They therefore concluded "that man lived in the eastern part of ...
75. THE LATELY TORTURED EARTH: PART VI: BIOSPHERICS: 26.Fossil Deposits [Quantavolution Website]
... torn and mashed mammalian remains (mastodons, mammoths, bison, etc.) along with remains of many types of contemporary flora and other fauna, are discoverable in Alaska and Siberia. They are found in muck pits. They portray instant disaster by tidal and atmospheric forces. Large deposits of bones are found in Baja California (Mexico) cast up by the same kind of forces, uniting elephants and sharks in death. Most species of large mammals suffered extinction in undeniably modern times. (In 1975 a radiocarbon dating of a mammoth find placed it at only 400 B. C.) The species that could betake themselves to high ground or fly quickly from one place to another survived in larger numbers. Humans were among the survivors. Maybe it will be also shown that humans were present when the continents split apart. The implication of such proof is that an ecumenical culture must have existed prior to the Lunarian diaspora. The references to the catastrophic extinctions at "the end of the Pleistocene" mark the end of the ice age, which should, ...

... ." [149 The Russians, who have conducted prolonged studies on this muck, have in some places drilled down to more than 4000 feet without reaching rock bottom. [150 Entire forests have been found buried in this area, including plum trees complete with their leaves and fruits, [151 to say nothing of palm trees and huge exotic ferns. [152 And this, of course, not to mention the animals found buried in this muck, the most noteworthy and famous of which, needless to say, is the mammoth. Let's face it, as George Gaylord Simpson was astute enough to realize, 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. [153 Now here lies the puzzle. As one writer has phrased it, "how do you get that thickness of what is manifestly surface-derived material if it is the result of mere run-off?" [154 As Dolph Hooker succinctly phrased it: "In some areas there are ...

... processes. The Pleistocene extinctions and climactic changes do not require an inversion and neither does the draining of Lakes Missoula and Bonneville. Regarding the extinctions of the mammoths and other mega-fauna, I withdraw my remarks in KRONOS VII:4 (1982), pp. 66-83, in favor of William White's rejoinder in the three issues of KRONOS XI (1985-6). I consider it significant that the Greenland ice does not show any sign of the titanic conflagration, described by Sanderson in 1960, that supposedly accompanied the instantaneous extinction of the mammoth. I also recommend Jared Diamond's discussion of the demise of the mammoth in the June 1987 Discover, pp. 82-88, in which he explains how selective killing of males could lead to extinction without ever coming close to a 100% kill rate in any local area. The best physical evidence for an inversion would be uniquely related to one, e.g., formations on earth reminiscent of the tidally-induced bulge or some other mass concentration that enabled a torque to flip Earth or systematic worldwide oceanic and/or coastal destruction caused by ...

... of the Atlantic must have [been filled, nearly in a line, with these remarkable deposits.... Within this bed, or nearer to the sea, are found fossil bones of elephants which cannot have been fossilised [before the existence of the soil out of which [the shells were dug.... (11) If the oyster shells had turned to stone, then so would the strata in which they lay. The soil has not turned to stone and contains innumerable oyster shell beds, along with mammoth remains, which indicates that the mammoths and the shells were deposited together recently --most likely by a gigantic tidal wave sweeping up from the Gulf of Mexico. In Cuba, according to Horworth, the remains of a giant sloth, giant extinct rodents, a crocodile and a tortoise, Testudo cubensis, were found together with the relic of a mastodon. (12) In 1984, William R. Corliss stated that a bone bed had been discovered south of Tampa, Florida, with paleontologists declaring it one of the United States ...

Gailenreuth, Germany [36, many more cemented together in red iron-oxide stained breccia at Kesslerloch, Switzerland [37, those within nearly pure iron-ore infilling rock-fissures descending to 720 ft [220m below ground level in Carniola, Austria [38 and ore-agglutinated masses of bones occupying cave after cave in Australia's Wellington Valley [39. Many cave breccias are strongly ferruginised. That of Tea Tree Cave in Queensland is an outstanding example [40. Animals remains from 'drift '-age sands and gravel also often exhibit external metalliferous staining. Typical examples were the mammoth and other mammal bones found at Turnham Green and Acton, Middlesex, last century 'loaded with manganous oxide' [41. Molluscs possessing a pronounced ferruginous patina occurred in blue-grey iron-sand overlying the celebrated frozen rhinoceros carcass of Vilyui in Siberia [42. Even a small soapstone idol exhumed from 'glacial' deposits over 280 feet (86m.) below ground level at Nampa, Idaho, late last century was found invested with reddish iron oxide [43. At many localities the stones and sand grains constituting much of the 'drift' itself ...
