221. Ice Cores and Common Sense (Part II) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... other problems make an absolute counting impossible. . . .3 If by "absolute count" he means perfectly accurate, this is almost certainly correct. But what of it? Since when is it necessary to have an exact count of annual layers in order to test Velikovsky's scenario? If the catastrophes he describes did take place, the physical traces would furnish reference horizons that could be used to cross-correlate all cores. If published time scales for the cores of interest are even approximately correct back to five or ten thousand years ago, that is more than enough. Rose throws out the taunt that "If such a count really were possible, then the ice core scientists would ...

... had not ignored Earth's moment of inertia in his AAAS paper. This was not immediately obvious to me, but after much study and consultation with V. I. Slabinski, I now understand how Michelson's technically correct remarks were misinterpreted by many readers, including me, and misreported by the editors of Pensee. As a paper dealing with the physics of Worlds in Collision, and considering Michelson's suggestive final paragraph, it is hard for a reader partial to Velikovsky to distinguish between Michelson's narrow technical point and the greater portent that is implied, ie., that it would be easy for Earth to flip over. In Pensee IVR VII, p. 42, Michelson's paper was reported ...

... it entirely for granted that Popper was right. I wonder why this should be so. Since when has Popper's word been law? Anyway, any competent philosopher of science could have told Mr. Bethell and Mr. Brady that Popper's idea is in fact a lousy one. Scarcely any scientific theory is falsifiable, in Popper's sense. Newtonian physics, for example, is not falsifiable. (See I. Lakatos, in The Philosophy of Karl Popper, Open Court, 1974, p. 247; or my Popper and After, Pergamon Press, 1982, pp. 91-3.) So if Darwin's theory is unfalsifiable, that does not stop it being a scientific theory. ...

224. The Uranians [Books] [de Grazia books]
... was known as rita (rite), which means etymologically set in motion' and has the idea in the Rig Veda of cosmic truth or order." The profound meaning of the word "rite" is suddenly apparent here; religious rite is aimed at rehearsing and repeating the original cosmic order so as to support and control it by physical means. I understand Varuna as the original benign and intimate heaven of Earth. The Vritryas are the dragon-like monsters of the falling skies. The Earth's surface is destroyed in the first struggle of the gods. But Indra appears between Heaven and Earth, the first sun, in an increasingly visible atmospheric space. Waters fall abundantly, running ...

... factor of 10,000 to one in frequency); what to see there, that is the character of the source (Velikovsky didn't understand that two kinds of distinct non-thermal emission are produced) .. . I who am a specialist in the field am moved to ask myself, Did this physician writing in 1954 know more about the physics of radio emissions from planets than this astrophysicist 20 years later?" [310]. And again, Velikovsky failed to predict the existence of radio noises from Venus, yet the high temperature is calculated on the basis of those radio signals (see Chapter 4). The whole field of radioastronomy is still young, and no radioastronomer ...

227. The Evolution of the Cosmogonic Egg [Journals] [Aeon]
... world" was said to have come into being. (6 ) A bizarre elaboration comes to us from an incantation intoned by the Bon of ancient Tibet. Bereft of its grotesqueness, the invocation tells of the formation of an egg which burst open "by its own innate force from the celestial womb," out of which the "physical universe" originated. (7 ) The same motif is also to be found in the dark reaches of Africa. Thus, the "original darkness," the "egg of the world," and the god Amma contained within it, have continued to play prominent roles in the ceremonies of the Dogon down into modern times. ...

... There are also genes that modify other genes, and genes that initiate or block the activity of other genes. And a single allele might affect an entire series of traits. In other words, heredity is a complex and multifaceted process. Around 1900 scientists began to probe the cell, the basic building block of all life, for the physical and chemical basis of heredity. When a cell begins to divide, its chromosomes become visible as long rope-like structures within the nucleus. For each species in nature, there is usually a characteristic chromosome number. Humans have one pair of sex chromosomes and twenty-two pairs of non-sex chromosomes, also known as autosomes. The chromosomes carry the genetic ...

... 570 Precambrian Eon The Standard Geological Column (see accompanying figure) presents a very precise picture of the geological record and events recorded in the earth's crust. And I hasten to add that precise does not imply accurate. It is a highly subjective representation, constructed piece-meal under uniformitarian assumptions. It should be emphasized that its divisions seldom represent real physical divisions in the earth's multitudinous layers of crustal rocks. Based largely on the gradualist assumption of their continuous evolutionary change through time, fossils found in sedimentary rocks are the primary means of correlating rock units and establishing a standard geological time scale. The same assumption dictated that the rock layers were millions of years in the making. We distinguish ...

... , of a supposed close encounter between the Earth and a comet, traces being left behind in the form of gravel deposits [5 : pp. 123-125]. At this time there was little astronomical or geological evidence for catastrophes of extraterrestrial origin. The existence of comets was of course known, but they did not seem to pose a physical threat to the Earth, as far as could be ascertained from two centuries of scientific observation. This view of comets as innocuous celestial objects was reinforced when Comet Biela began to disintegrate in 1846, producing an impressive display of shooting stars (the Andromedid shower) in 1872 and on subsequent occasions, but causing no damage [5 , ...
