111. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1996:2 (May 1997) Home | Issue Contents Monitor NEWS Scientific Mafia strikes again BBC science programme, details unknown. Geologists and palaeontologists Charles Officer, Tony Hallam and Professor Dewey MacClean (Virginia Polytechnic Institute) revealed an unpublicised background to the current popular theory of the demise of the dinosaurs following a massive impact off Yucatan. They say the theory achieved prominence not only because of its exciting appeal but also because its originator, Luis Alvarez, was a Nobel prize winning physicist with tremendous scientific clout. MacClean and Officer believe massive volcanism is a more likely cause of the extinction. Alvarez threatened to wreck MacClean's career and orchestrated a ...
112. Some Additional Evidence from the Period from the Exodus to the End of the Eighteenth Dynasty [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of chapters in Ages in Chaos, Volume I. The catastrophic events that interrupted the even flow of history served as the starting point of Ages in Chaos for the synchronisation of the histories of the Ancient East, in Worlds in Collision these cataclysms were reconstructed from historical documents and traditions of ancient races; in Earth in Upheaval the geological and palaeontological evidence was presented to substantiate the same claims, and only some scattered archaeological evidence was adduced. The task of collecting and interpreting the archaeological evidence of a great natural upheaval in the area of the Near East was diligently performed by CLAUDE F. A. SCHAEFFER of the Collège de France, the excavator of Ras-Shamra/Ugarit. During ...

... riles opponents is simplicity. One researcher, who seems to have found a simple and universally applicable principle to explain the weather, not only on Earth but also other planets, is being criticised by scientists whose careers are built on large, sophisticated computer models. In extreme cases intolerant prejudice can almost lead to international incidents. The late British palaeontologist Beverley Halstead was once so incensed by what he considered the un-Darwinian views of the top Japanese primatologist that he decried the whole of Japanese science and that bastion of orthodoxy, the journal Nature, printed his article.

114. The SIS, its history and achievements: a personal perspective [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the word I' too often it's not out of conceit or arrogance: these are my impressions of how the Society was formed. I'll start long before, way back in 1940-something when I was about 13 or 14 and at school. There was one particular teacher who taught us about old history' (I suppose we would call it palaeontology) and I can vividly remember the lesson in which we were taught about fossils. My reaction was to stand up in class and to ask why, if fossils were formed in the past, are there such great gaps between them? I was told off for asking silly questions. Then I wanted to know why weren't fossils being ...
115. Quantavolution of the Biosphere: Homo Sapiens [Books] [de Grazia books]
... gradual stratification are incongruent with the model of Solaria Binaria. The fossil record, which is the guarantor of traditional geochronometry for the phanerozoic era, is generally acknowledged to be fragmentary, disjointed, and anomalistic (Ager, ch. 3). It is beyond the scope of this book to attempt a reorganization in detail of the geological and palaeontological record, and we have had to content ourselves with using conventional labels in a preliminary sketch of the route which such a reorganization would take. Table 6 exhibits in its first part what we would regard as the several significant major divisions of binarian history, leading into a more refined division, also contained therein, of the final very ...

... . I think Velikovsky was invited to debate his evolutionary ideas with an opponent provided extinction was excluded: if that's correct it suggests that the problems Raup is now raising were well known 40 years ago but the climate was such that no one in the establishment dared to face up to them; and as "Standard textbooks on evolutionary biology and palaeontology hardly mention extinction" this state of affairs seems largely to persist. Raup makes a strong point that the known fossil record (probably) comprises not more than 1 in 20,000 of all those who have lived, but "must be strongly biassed in favour of species that were abundant and geographically widespread." These are the ...

... Arctic Circle, then cooling and darkness should not seriously have affected the dinosaurs living elsewhere (e .g . the tropics). The find is good evidence instead for a catastrophist cause of extinction which does not involve impact producing dust and darkness. What is of tremendous significance for catastrophists of the Velikovsky school is an observation which is intriguing palaeontologists. Some of the fossils are not fossilised at all, in the sense of having been mineralised, but have the appearance of modern bone! 2. sources: DAILY TELEGRAPH 5.10.85: NEW SCIENTIST 10.10.85, p.26: SUNDAY TIMES 20.10.85 Three researchers from the University ...
118. Velikovsky and the Apparatus of Scholarship [Journals] [SIS Review]
... have never given him a fair hearing, but equally it is the fault of Dr Velikovsky's supporters, and to a great extent of Dr Velikovsky himself. First of all, Dr Velikovsky's theses concern the realms of science, if they are concerned with anything at all. He deals with chemistry and physics, astronomy and astrophysics, geology and palaeontology, celestial mechanics and gravity, to name but a few of the hard sciences in which he has laboured. When scientific supporters do emerge for Dr Velikovsky's hypotheses, however, all too frequently they are discovered to be working in areas of their discipline other than those with which Velikovsky has been concerned. His enemies have been quick to ...

... changes and migration patterns. New radiocarbon evidence has overthrown all this. It can be conclusively shown that the jaguar and spruce grouse were contemporaries, living some 11-10,000 years ago. The latest explanation for the contemporary living of two species with such different climatic preferences is that the Ice Ages were not times of severe climate. Instead, palaeontologist J. Alan Holman of Michigan State University believes that the weather was generally mild with frost-free winters and coolish summers. Our correspondent notes that some 30 years ago Velikovsky questioned whether there had been Ice Ages, or at least of the type that was (and still is) commonly accepted. Are times changing? Deluge Ice Ages? ...
120. The Age of Purple Darkness [Journals] [Aeon]
... the Rigveda there appears the line: "Thou, O Agni, art Varuna, when born."  Thus Agni, as Varuna, is Saturn. The Purple in the Darkness As I shall show at length in the longer essay, if the age of darkness ever existed, it would not have been for long in palaeontological terms. An age, or ages, of visible light would have been the rule. At all times, ultraviolet and infrared have been, and are, required for all links in the terrestrial food chain. This suggests a form of light that was low in visible wavelengths but high in ultraviolet and infrared, being, as a ...
