101. The Molecular Revolution [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Obviously, mistakes could arise in the process, but associated evidence such as the precise type of some commonly-occurring fossil, e.g . pigs' teeth, in a stratum can be used to check consistency of results between different sites [5 ]. Over the whole period of investigation described in The Making of Mankind and Lucy, while palaeontologists struggled to assess and date their fossils, they almost totally ignored information that was being made available as a result of biochemical investigations [2 , 9, 10]. Vincent Sarich and Allan Wilson of the University of California, Berkeley, began in the early 1960's to study the relationship between the genes of different species alive at the ...

102. Catastrophes and the History of Life on Earth [Journals] [SIS Review]
... These are known as the big five' extinctions [23]. Life had proliferated in the oceans during the Cambrian and Ordovician periods. Then, at the end of the Ordovician, about 440 Myr ago, came the first of the big five extinctions, when around 80% of all species died out. As Richard Foley, a palaeontologist at the Natural History Museum in London, wrote in 1997, The end of the Ordovician was a punctuation mark in the history of life, providing a natural end to the first great phase of diversification and reorganisation of marine life. Those animals and plants that survived went on to make the modern world; had the list of survivors ...

... soon they will accept that chaos theory could be applied to the more recent past. Interpretations at Fault source: Nature 338, p. 704 The Arabian peninsula was long thought to have been arid for millions of years and sandstone structures were thought to be fossil dune fields. When fossil fish were found in them a re-evaluation was forced upon palaeontologists: they now consider that the area was a well watered delta system for a greatly extended Tigris-Euphrates river system 8 million years ago. A recent expedition unearthed a very rich fauna, including ostrich egg shells twice as thick as any today - shades of Sinbad's mythical roc. Subsequently the whole world became much drier but short, wet, ...

... pharaoh... ', are invariably found buried in earth ( 'there is no evidence that these animals fell into glacial crevasses'). The evidence points to a rich, steppe vegetation circled the top of the globe like a grassy collar', capable of supporting vast herds of huge grazing animals. Frozen mummies investigated by Soviet palaeontologists appear to come from two periods dates at 11,000 and 35,000 years ago. The climate at the edge of the ice was very different from that of the tundra today, particularly regarding the strong, dry winds that blew at the time, carrying enormous amounts of dust which was deposited as loess during the coldest periods ...

... amounts of energy are released very rapidly and shock waves radiate from the fault, causing secondary effects which one would never suspect if considering only the average rate of movement (Gretener, 1972). Recurrent events have a probability (curve b, Figure 4) such that one can expect them to occur almost uniformly at least once during each palaeontological stage (11+ My). Occasional events (curve c, Figure 4) must have occurred several times throughout the Phanerozoic. They may well represent the type of events responsible for the various evolutionary breaks that have been used to produce the major divisons of the palaeontological time scale. Rare events can be expected to have occurred at ...

... ancient sources". But Worlds in Collision has a chapter on "Boiling Earth and Sea". The Zend-Avesta says: "The sea boiled all the shores of the ocean boiled, all the middle of it boiled." Writing his paper, Sagan seems not to know of the existence of Earth in Upheaval, where the geological, palaeontological, and climatological evidence of global catastrophes is presented, and especially the global changes thirty-four and twenty-seven centuries ago. He wrote: "To the best of my knowledge there is no geological evidence for a global inundation of all parts of the world either in the eighth or in the fifteenth centuries B.C . If such floods occurred ...

... outstanding yet least known British chroniclers of the paradigm shift in the natural sciences, particularly with regards to the scientific revolution in the fields of cometary astronomy, neo-catastrophism and evolution. Since the late 1970s, when Trevor began to write about these startling new research findings in SIS REVIEW, he has been continuously following the implications of impact-related research on palaeontology and evolutionary theory. Over the years, Trevor Palmer has been influenced by quite a number of neo-catastrophists and SIS speakers such as Rene Gallant, Archie Roy, Victor Clube, Ruppert Sheldrake, Chandra Wickramasinghe - to name be a few of the British players in this scientific drama - who have enlightened many meetings of the Society for Interdisciplinary ...

... the insights of his own rediscoveries. In an attempt to verify the message of myth as a factual and historic occurrence, he began to focus on the detectable effects that the Saturnian sequence of events should have left indelibly imprinted on the present nature of things. Not feeling quite comfortable with the accepted scheme, he urged a re-examination of the palaeontological succession that is based on ecological communities, traceable evolutionary change, stratigraphic accumulation, assumed rates of sedimentation, and the supposedly correct decay rates of radioactive materials. Granted that many of these conventional tenets had already been questioned, and in some cases re-examined, by Velikovskian scholars, Ashton went one better. He devised a series of experiments ...

... corroborated by evidence given directly and distinctly by the Calendar sculpture. For among the chronoglyphs we find at least the portrait of one animal which does not now occur anywhere near Tiahuanaco : the Flying Fish. And we find among them at least also one animal which has been extinct since Tertiary times: the Toxodon. As regards the latter, palaeontologists say that no living man can have seen that peculiar, exclusively South American animal. Nevertheless the inhabitants of Tiahuanaco must have been quite familiar with this queer living fossil', which was already very much out-of-date' in the Tertiary Period. They seem to have regarded that big placid harmless grass-eater as sacred to the Sun, for it ...
