... were brought about by the precession of the equinoxes ; so, it is said, in the organic world, the stability of a species may be taken as absolute, if we do not extend our views beyond the narrow period of human history ; but let a sufficient number of centuries elapse, to allow of important revolutions in climate, physical geography, and other circumstances, and the characters, say they, of the descendants of common parents may deviate indefinitely from their original type. Now, if these doctrines be tenable, we are at once presented with a principle of incessant change in the organic world ; and no degree of dissimilarity in the plants and animals which may ...
12. Before the Day Breaks(1) -- A Perspective [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... Earth, and of the significant role played by electromagnetism in celestial motion. The two men had met in Europe in the 1920s, when Einstein was editing the mathematics and physics sections of the Writings of the University and the Library of Jerusalem - Scripta Universitatis atque Bibliothecae Hierosolymitanarum, edited by Velikovsky. Velikovsky likened the later years with Einstein, ... . Although Einstein was, in large measure, accepted by the scientific establishment, he was not secure regarding his theoretical position and lived under a cloud created by a new physics- quantum mechanics. A new generation of scientists had arisen, following this new theory, and had rejected him. Thus, in Velikovsky, he had found a comrade ...

... , were saved in an Ark which landed on Mt. Ararat in Asia Minor. The highest elevation of this mountain is 17,100 feet above sea level. The physical cause of the Great Flood is confirmed by the biblical story, which consists of two merged narratives; from these we learn that "the same day were all the ... of forces of Nature which are created by the "Will of God" and are beyond the understanding of men. The Ice Cap grows larger according to the Laws of Physics-which some of us must understand or most of us must perish. The Ice Cap must be subdued by man or man will be subdued by the Ice Cap. Like ...

... Tampere University of Technology five years ago. He now works as a researcher in superconducting materials at the nearby University of Tampere. He has recently convinced NASA to spend $600,000 on a machine he claims will shield matter from Earth's gravity. The implication is that if it works it will open up a whole new branch of theoretical physics. In 1992 he published a paper describing how he had stumbled across a "gravity shielding" effect while running a routine test on one of his superconductors. The details were sketchy. But the basics are these make a superconducting disc 145 millimetres in diameter and 6 millimetres thick, according to a special chemical recipe that Podkletnov did not ...
15. Henry H. Bauer and Immanuel Velikovsky [Books]
... on a major controversy of great psychological and sociological importance." (5 ) Marcello Truzzi, sociologist from Eastern Michigan University also suggests: "Bauer's remarkable book will be viewed, even by Velikovskians, as a great improvement over previous critical studies [of Velikovsky's theories]." (6 ) Michael W. Friedlander, a professor of physics at Washington University in St. Louis, states, "I strongly recommend Henry Bauer's, Beyond Velikovsky . . ." (7 ) Even Bauer himself suggests that his book offers "a means of stimulating recognition of the many inaccuracies, half-truths, unsupported assertions and misleading statements to which we all are constantly exposed."

17. Book Shelf [Journals] [Aeon]
... which brought many earlier theoretical discoveries out of the realm of science fantasy and into the world of stark reality. For a while, anyway. Hyperspace is something of a scientific manifesto by theoretical physicist Michio Kaku of Princeton's Institute for Advanced Study. He begins slowly, taking the uninitiated reader through the shallow waters of the grammar and syntax of physics, without burdening him with the mathematical intricacies, leading gently and persuasively into the deeper seas of the forces of nature and the attempts being made for their unification into a more coherent field theory. Before long we find ourselves blithely bathing in the uncharted abyssal depths of the multi-dimensional Kaluza-Klein model that mathematically unified Einstein's gravitational field equations with Maxwell's ...
18. From Myth to a Physical Model [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon III:3 (Oct 1993) Home | Issue Contents From Myth to a Physical Model Dave Talbott Introduction In this article, the first of three parts, I take up these issues- General issues for catastrophists working in the Velikovskian tradition. What is the basis of our confidence in myth? Can it ever be proven that myth is a reflection of unusual celestial events? Evolution of a mythically-based model. A summary of recent changes in the model of the polar configuration, and a look at other aspects of the configuration on which little or no detail has been previously published. Introduction of Robert Grubaugh and a physical model of the polar configuration. Grubaugh ...

... ." One wonders if this is indicative of the scientific community's evaluation of the intelligence or knowledge of the "layman." I have never majored in any of the physical sciences (hence, presumably, would qualify as a "layman"), but I have majored extensively in philosophy and history, and I do not find the ... to be so readily discounted. Galileo's opposition, it may be noted, objected not only to his alleged conflict with the Bible but even more to his rejection of Aristotle's Physics- which to the ecclesiastical establishment of that day was as much a sacred cow as Lyell's uniformitarianism today. Loren Eisely (ibid. p. 38) describes catastrophism as ...
20. A Catastrophic Reading of Western Cosmology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... be. Notice too what Nature then does. Having decided for male over female and for permanence over change (or for stability over catastrophe), she then simply disappears from human perception. The serene and just lawgiver is said by the poet to simply hide herself. I see in this a strange anticipation of the dilemma which faces modern physics. Spenser had to bring the personification of Nature onto the scene because only Nature knows what the natural world is like and the decision had to be authoritative, yet he then makes her disappear, leaving behind only her effect. Those physicists aware of the consequences for knowledge of relativity and quantum mechanics, knowing that the fundamental strata of ...
