... an interesting and learned challenge to orthodox Darwinism without surrendering to fundamentalist creationism. ' (Walker Percy, quoted on the cover). It is a fair comment. However, a section headed Two Goals' in chapter 1 says: The first objective of this review is a revamping of [US] public school treatment of the subject of origins and Earth's record of life'. Ten lines later we find: The second goal is to revamp public school teaching on the subject of origins .. . '. This is more likely a failure of proof-reading rather than emphasis by repetition. Moreover, the title suggests two further goals: to assert the authority of parts of the ...

... inhabitants of Nakhla, Egypt, were treated to a spectacular meteor shower. As it turns out, one of these meteors almost certainly came from the planet Mars, nearly 50 million miles away. The difficulty in dislodging a rock from the red planet, much less transporting it to Earth, has prompted several noted authorities to doubt its Martian origin. The meteorite's chemical imprint, however, not unlike the DNA-evidence in a murder trial, leaves little doubt about its place of origin. Nor was this the only such fragment to make such a journey. To date, ten Martian meteorites have been identified, half of them being observed falls. The recognition that these rocks hail from ...

... the possibility of occurrence of the major events described by Velikovsky. These papers were written by recognised scientists who were not necessarily attempting to support Velikovsky. That a qualitative discussion is presented by one investigator and this model is then later supported quantitatively by others is not unprecedented. Laplace offered, without any mathematical development, his nebular model of the origin of the solar system (1 ). Articles in the scientific literature indicate that major changes could have occurred in the order and composition of the original solar system. Collisions have played an important role in some of these changes. In 1960, McCrea (2 ), who was then president of the Royal Astronomical Society, proposed that ...

74. CANEPA: BOOK REVIEW [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon III:5 (May 1994) Home | Issue Contents A. Bailey, V. Clube, & B. Napier, The Origin of Comets (Pergamon Press: New York) 1990 Reviewed by Joel Canepa If there is any middle ground that can be navigated between those who believe the Solar System has remained essentially unchanged for billions of years and those who opt for cosmic changes in the System within the memory of man, one could perhaps find it in the theoretical scenario proposed by Victor Clube and Bill Napier. Their theory propounds the occurrence of cataclysmic events, caused by extraterrestrial phenomena, within historical times. More specifically, they theorize that the Taurid ...

... 11. The Satapatha-brahmana 5 prescribed the brown-flowering phalguna plant as being akin to the soma-plant, in the absence of this the Syena-hrtra (falcon rapt) plant, or the adara, or the brown duba 6 (durva), or any kind of yellow kusa plants. But Dr. O. Schrader7 pronounces that all the investigations of the original terrestrial soma-plant have failed to produce any tangible result. This soma is the Avestan haoma which, like the universe-mountain, becomes duplicated, for there is an earthly as well as a heavenly haoma; the celestial one growing-up in the actual middle of the sublime spring Ardvistlra in the sea of air Vurukasha, or the Airanya-vaeja, the atmosphere ...

He proposes that the "felt effect of gravity" was reduced in the not-too-distant past, allowing such large beasts to walk around. This FAQ explores Holden's claims.

79. Earth Parturition and Moon Birth [Books] [de Grazia books]
... CHAPTER SEVEN Earth Parturition and Moon Birth The Uranian age closed in a crescendo of destruction. The ancient orphic rites of Greece commemorated their remote Uranian origins when they began with the chanting of the myth of the cracking of the cosmic egg. That the world was an egg that had to be broken to begin the human experience is a myth found in all quarters of the globe. We have reported this in the preceding chapter [1 ]. Heaven burst to produce the great god Ouranos and the turbulent sky. Then Ouranos was dismembered by his son, Saturn, in league with Gaea, his spouse and Earth. Aphrodite Urania, the Moon, was then born, ...
