61. Stories of Radioactivity and Mutations [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... left no apparent geological trace. The term could cover the full range of electromagnetic radiation, beginning with heat, and could also include any type of short lived radioactive radiation. But the lack of geological trace does not mean that there is only supposition for proof of radiation. Velikovsky has adequately argued his ideas on evolution from the geological and palaeontological viewpoints [2 ]. However, he did not choose to place a strong emphasis on evolution in his first major work [3 ], which was from the viewpoint of the ancient, human written record. It is from this area which I believe he derived his greatest strength and from which proof, although weak, is offered ...

63. Lyall Watson Website [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... Town to be civilised. It didn't take, but I learned the game well enough to earn a degree in botany and zoology in 1958, before going on to study medicine. That was fun, but I missed the wild - and the luxury of having more than one species in my life. So I switched to an apprenticeship in palaeontology under my anatomy professor, Raymond Dart - the discoverer of Australopithecus, the first African hominid. This led to anthropological studies in Germany and Holland, and I ended up earning a Doctor of Philosophy degree in ethology under the exciting supervision of Desmond Morris at the London Zoo. While involved in archaeological fieldwork in Jordan in 1967, I ...
64. C&C Review 1987 Issue (Volume IX): Contents [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 34 The second of his series of articles detailing the evidence for a major disruptive event at around 2300 BC, Moe Mandelkehr presents here very considerable climatological evidence to the effect that world climate altered dramatically at that time. Trevor Palmer: The Cautious Revolutionary 34 A portrait of the colourful Stephen J. Gould: Dr Palmer shows how this famous palaeontologist is really a catastrophist at heart.

65. Varves And Bok Globules (Forum) [Journals] [Aeon]
... also speaks of the arrival and/or capture of Saturn when, again, the mytho-historical record is adamant on proto-Saturn's preexistence. Nowhere is it reported that Saturn "arrived" or was "captured" from anywhere. As far as mankind was concerned, the proto-Saturnian luminary had always been in the sky. And, to be sure, palaeontological evidence indicates that Earth had existed in axial coupling with proto-Saturn since its very inception. [4 ] Twose then speaks of the "refraction and reflection of the Sun's radiation" when, again, the mytho-historical record is persistent in its claim that the Sun was absent during the age of darkness. More than that, man remembers the ...
66. Global Catastrophes: New Evidence from Astronomy, Biology and Archaeology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... evolutionary biologists have tended to cling tenaciously. Dr Palmer outlined the beliefs of the Modern or neo-Darwinian Synthesis, and argued that even the powerful medical evidence against it, namely that nearly all mutations are harmful, can be allayed by the example of sickle-cell anaemia which shows that in some cases a side effect can be actually beneficial. However, palaeontologists have found little or no evidence for evolution by natural selection in the fossil record, which rather favours the arguments of opponents by its incompleteness. Discussing the difference between micro-evolution (the change within a species such as the melanization of the peppered moth in industrial areas) and macro-evolution (the change from one species to another), Dr ...
67. Bone Breccias (Comments on Apophoreta-3) [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... Canada Ref.: Van Everdingery R.O ., 1969: The Ink Pots- a group of karst springs in the Rocky Mountains near Banff, Alberta. Can.J .Earth Sci. 6/4 : 545-554. * * * The problem here is that an equally strong and pervasive uniformitarian influence exists in sedimentology as in palaeontology, with in the interpretation of sediments an aversion from every such common and minor catastrophes as rapid mass movements. Even if we are willing to consider catastrophist hypotheses, some basic data may be lacking, and thus the "cooperation" of the two specialities may lead to a typical case of "cross sterilisation", so common between ...
68. Horizons [Journals] [SIS Review]
... flourish by the fact that the Eocene moderation of the low temperatures did not change the geographical conditions which produced six dark and six light months. To make full use of the four to six months of polar daylight, the trees developed abnormally large leaves. One of the scientists involved concludes: "Since the early days of science, we palaeontologists have depended on comparisons with the living world in order to reconstruct the past. In this case, however, it looks as if we don't have any modern environment which closely approaches conditions in the High Arctic in the time before the ice caps developed." Finally, an appetite-whetter from the remainder: the reviewer of the book Ice ...
69. A New Introduction to Earth in Upheaval [Journals] [SIS Review]
... twenty-seven centuries ago. As early as the 1960s, I found that Earth in Upheaval was displacing The Origin of Species in the courses of a number of geophysicists - as in the case of my visit to Oberlin College in 1965. At Princeton University Earth in Upheaval, from its publication and for two decades, was required reading in the palaeontology course of Professor Glenn Jepsen. H. H. Hess, Chairman of the Department of Geology (later Geophysics), told me that he knew Earth in Upheaval by heart; he debated it with me at the first open meeting of "Cosmos and Chronos", which he founded on the campus of Princeton University in January 1965 ...
70. Frozen mammoths et al. [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... 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. '" ...
