361. Metron [Journals] [Kronos]
... ) Home | Issue Contents Metron Livio C. Stecchini Copyright (C ) 1981 by the Estate of Livio C. Stecchini Science is a process consciously directed towards achieving knowledge that is explicitly formulated, general in scope, systematically ordered, and dependable. Since Kepler and Galileo, dependability is based on testing by measurement. The reason for which physics became the queen of the sciences is its consistent determination to introduce measurement into its discussions at the very earliest stage. Modern science began when Galileo introduced the distinction between primary and secondary properties; primary properties are those that are measurable. Hence, science today is the art of formulating general statements that are verifiable by measurement. The precision ...

362. The Recency of the Surface [Books] [de Grazia books]
... , it does permit us to entertain a short-term model of solar system history. The evidence of Solaria Binaria is such that all previously existing tests offering macrochronic conclusions are either modified to suit our model, or declared invalid. With regard to geological and biological tests that assert long duration of processes, evidence is accumulating rapidly that quantavolutionary transformations are physically possible. Independent of historical argumentation, geological and biological time are collapsible in theory and in the laboratory. Astronomers figure time in light-years over vast distances, but this is a convenience, not a measure of history. Empirical tests are, however, also theory-dependent, as, for example, the "thermonuclear" Sun whose dynamics are ...

363. Revisiting The Temperature Of Venus [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... not of a greenhouse effect, and I was able to deduce, accurately, the surface temperature of Venus, assuming a candescent state of the planet some 3,500 years ago. I used Velikovsky's time scale and his historical evidence that Venus was candescent at the origin of that scale. My other information was conventional, universally accepted in physics. I came up with the present surface temperature of Venus using this combination of quantities. My results, like anyone's, can be ignored, but they cannot be made to vanish. The work is representative of the same quality physics by which I and many others have earned our living. Yet somehow, though my thermodynamic and heat ...

... lebensraum which gave rise to a jealous anti-Semitism. The Jew came to be seen as the radical and subversive opponent of German ideals, which is the logical outcome of a clash over territory, especially as the newly united Germany in the second half of the 19th century sought to push aside all the old non-Germanic standards in music, poetry, physics, philosophy and so on in order to attain academic, creative, financial and military dominance in Europe. There were several spectacular incidents of anti-Semitism in France, Germany and Russia when Velikovsky was young which would have been topics of household conversation. The situation in 1918 or 1933 was therefore not new, but simply brought the problem to ...

... not ridiculed. And the examination can be conducted and completed without conversion of the anthropologist to the views of the informants. Pari passu, the most ancient "fossil voices" are to be audited seriously, even sympathetically. In this case, the voices would have to be translated into a model that would begin to make sense to modern physics and psychology. The results would be foreseeable. Considering the intellectual revolution that would follow, the ancient cosmogonical consensus would be rejected by most scholars in short order. For the following principles of physics and natural history would be among the most likely to be inferred from the ancient empirical beliefs: A. All planets and satellites would have ...

Abstracts of Contributed Talks and Posters presented at the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Astronomische Gesellschaft at Bremen, September 18-23, 2000. In ancient times the calibration of astronomical observations with respect to the local physical horizon provided the possibility to adjust calendar data with high accuracy according to the apparent movement of the sun, the moon and the stars. [. .] Of astronomical relevance are empirical tests to determine the exact position of the lunar standstill without any knowledge of the heliocentric paths, nodes, and time of declination maximum.

... From: Pensée Vol. 2 No 2: (May 1972) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered I" Home | Issue Contents Lunar Rocks and Velikovsky's Claims Derek York An associate professor of physics in the geophysics division, University of Toronto, Dr. Derek York is analyzing lunar samples as a Foreign Principal Investigator, Apollo Project. In 1896, a 44-year old French professor, Henri Becquerel discovered that uranium compounds emitted rays which penetrated glass and paper and blackened photographic plates. Becquerel had discovered what we call radioactivity. Uranium atoms are unstable and a group of them will very slowly (that is over hundreds of millions of years) spontaneously change into the stable element lead. This ...

He received bachelor's and master's degrees in chemistry from Utah University and went on to Yale in 1934, where he received a PhD in physical chemistry in 1937. One of his most important scientific contributions was the Thermohydrodynamic Theory and Mechanism of Detonation', which he developed in 1942 as a research chemist at the DuPont Company and he received a special award from the US Army in 1992 for his work on the design of the shaped charge for the bazooka anti-tank weapon in World ...

... one or two others, that catastrophic events are more likely to instigate a myth-making process than everyday events.(3 ) Certainly it is likely that earth-shaking disasters would do just that, and there is ample evidence within mythology for just such an occurrence. However, to state that mythology is exclusively concerned with such matters is like saying that physics is exclusively concerned with formulating laws that can account for a Velikovskian scenario, or that archaeology is exclusively concerned with synchronizing events in the Middle East of two or three millennia ago! Everyday' events were, to primitive man, highly mysterious and potentially threatening: of course civilised man would not create myths to explain why the Sun rises ...

How strictly must one be able to follow the scenario in the sky in order to accept its general validity? Up to a point, it is excusable to perceive a physically impossible movement; myth and dream, in the interest of censoring content and creating an aesthetic experience, may have Hephaestus-Venus, for example, doubling back on the "celestial bedroom" too quickly for any conceivable physics to account for. On the other hand, suppose that Ares-Mars had flown off to Cyprus with Aphrodite there to be reunited ...
