1. Mammoth Update: A Reply to Ellenberger (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. VII No. 4 (Summer 1982) "Evolution, Extinction, and Catastrophism" Home | Issue Contents Forum Mammoth Update: A Reply to Ellenberger To the Editor of KRONOS: May one whose name was mentioned several times in a letter to your journal,(1 ) about the Frozen Mammoth Controversy, reply to the points made in that letter? [Leroy] Ellenberger remains unconvinced that mammoths were able to tolerate extreme cold, and his argument rests heavily on Neuville's observation that the skin of these creatures lacked certain "oil-glands" and on John White's sweeping statement that such glands are possessed by every extant arctic animal.(2 ) The ...
2. Arctic Tundra Mammoth Steppe Or Velikovskian Poleshift? [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 3 No 2&3 (1997) Home | Issue Contents Arctic Tundra Mammoth Steppe Or Velikovskian Poleshift?Charles Ginenthal The question to be resolved is: What was the environment in which the mammoths and other megafauna lived? The most recent theory suggests these animals lived in a slightly warmer environment than that of today made up of a mosaic of tundra, tundra forest, and grassland vegetation called a "mammoth steppe." The older theory holds that these fauna lived on tundra and were well adapted to it. Velikovsky's poleshift concept suggests the Ice Age ended with a poleshift which moved the declination of the pole of rotation more perpendicularly to the plane ...
3. The Environment And Preservation Of The Mammoth [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 3 No 2&3 (1997) Home | Issue Contents The Environment and Preservation of The Mammoth Charles Ginenthal As was pointed out above by Charlesworth, if forests spread far north during the hipsithermal, it would necessarily follow that the mammoth lived in an environment not only of grasslands, but also of forests. The advocates of the mammoth steppe theory have been denying for some time that there is any evidence that mammoths in the arctic lived in forests. Bernard Heuvelmanns describes some of the evidence which relates to this issue: "I had... a feeling that there was something I had overlooked, or rather something everyone had taken for ...
4. The Animal that Changed the Course of World History: The Mammoth [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History XIII:1 (Jan 1991) Home | Issue Contents The Animal that Changed the Course of World History: The Mammoth Vladimir Belousov There once was an animal that was of great importance to early man. Its disappearance caused a radical turn in human history. This animal was the mammoth. The mammoth was a prize catch for ice-age hunters. Its meat was tasty and plentiful. Its hide, sinews, and tusks were used for clothing and for building homes. The very life of ice-age communities depended on this useful animal. When a global change in the climate occurred some twelve thousand years ago, and the mammoth became extinct, humans ...
5. The Problem of the Frozen Mammoths [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. I No. 4 (Winter 1976) Home | Issue Contents The Problem of the Frozen Mammoths Dwardu Cardona Much has been written concerning the frozen mammoths of Siberia. It is not the intention of this paper to summarize the abundant literature on the subject but rather to correct some misconceptions which have arisen due to certain carelessness in the treatment of the subject by past writers. It has been stated that the remains of as many as 100,000 mammoths have been retrieved from the Siberian muck.(1 ) Statements such as " absolutely countless numbers"(2 ) and "tens of thousands of mammoths"(3 ) have given the false ...
6. Catastrophism and the Mammoths- III (Vox Populi) [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. XI No. 3 (Summer 1986) Home | Issue Contents Vox Populi Catastrophism and the Mammoths- III To the Editor of KRONOS: THE MAMMOTH IN ICE AND SNOW When it comes to the significance of Neuville's observations concerning the apparent lack of sebaceous glands in the skin of the mammoth, my critics are divided. Leroy Ellenberger repeats his earlier belief that, because the creature lacked such glands, its other apparent morphological adaptations to a glacial climate are inadequate to categorize it as an arctic animal. Elsewhere, however, he relents a little: "Whether or not the mammoth was truly adapted to life in present arctic conditions will likely never be ...
7. Catastrophism and the Mammoths - I (Vox Populi) [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. XI No. 1 (Fall 1985) Home | Issue Contents Vox Populi Catastrophism and the Mammoths - I To the Editor of KRONOS: It was rather flattering that my previous letter on the above subject(1 ) attracted replies from no fewer than three distinguished correspondents: C. Leroy Ellenberger, Dwardu Cardona, and Dr. Alta Price.(2 ) Having read their contributions, however, I regret that I can only echo Ellenberger in stating that much of what they offered is "equivocal, irrelevant, or wrong". Before attempting to remedy this state of affairs by dealing with these matters under the very headings employed by Ellenberger, ...
8. Radiocarbon Dating The Extinction [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... No 2&3 (1997) Home | Issue Contents Radiocarbon Dating The Extinction Charles Ginenthal Radiocarbon dating is the final support, and only support for the contention of the age of the extinction. As Haynes says, "According to radiocarbon dates, a proboscidean crisis occurred 10,000 to 12,000 years ago, the interval when mammoths and mastodonts disappeared from the world."1 But he also admits that "some would say they disappeared later."2 This later extinction possibility Haynes and the other uniformitarians are clearly unwilling to examine presently or admit openly. To drop this 10,000 year extinction date would destroy both the hunting and climate hypotheses. Hence, ...
9. Catastrophism and the Mammoths - II (Vox Populi) [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. XI No. 2 (Winter 1986) Home | Issue Contents Vox Populi Catastrophism and the Mammoths - II To the Editor of KRONOS: ANCIENT vs. RECENT DECAY Having accepted the difficulty in establishing whether the observed mutilation of the mammoth corpses occurred soon after death or upon re-exposure of the frozen remains, it has occurred to me that those least damaged owe their better preservation to the protection afforded by the entombing sediment. Such doubts do not however extend to the evidence for microbial attack in antiquity . Leroy Ellenberger objected to my so-called "overwhelming preference for putrefaction' over decomposition'". This is astonishing when one considers that the former was the ...
10. The Extinction of the Mammoth by Charles Ginenthal (Book Review). C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2002:1 (Jul 2002) Home | Issue Contents Book Review The Extinction of the Mammoth by Charles Ginenthal 1997 (Special edition of The Velikovskian, comprising nos. 2 & 3 of Vol. III) Jill Abery, J.B . Delair Charles Ginenthal takes us back to the exciting days of Velikovsky's Earth in Upheaval, with a plethora of new evidence which cuts the ground from under the feet of those who still doggedly hold the view that the demise of the large ice age' fauna across the high latitude regions of the world happened at the end of the Ice Age, around 10,000 years ago, due ...
