31. Physics, Astronomy and Chronology. Part One: Radiometric Chronometry [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1987 (Vol IX) Home | Issue Contents Physics, Astronomy and Chronology. Part One: Radiometric Chronometry Earl R. Milton Earl R. Milton Ph.D . is an Associate Professor at the Department of Physics at Lethbridge University. He edited Recollections of a Fallen Sky, and his articles have appeared in many publications, including Kronos and SIS Review. He is the co-author (with Alfred de Grazia) of the book Solaria Binaria (London 1984). (Based upon a lecture presented to the SIS meeting in London on 17th October 1981) Introduction In examining the radiometric chronometries I have singled out one of the methods, ...
32. Big and Little Science [Articles]
... effects which "are created by this process." This means that the scientist each time he observes creates something new, for, as physicist John Wheeler says, "this is a participatory universe." The scientific observation is therefore less a picture of reality than a sort of mirror in which the observer sees himself, which makes the physical world a product of human consciousness. To physicist Fred Wolf, when we look at the universe "We are looking at ourselves," and to Garry Zukav "we cannot eliminate ourselves from the picture....physics is the study of the structure of consciousness." "We can only see nature blurred by the clouds ...
33. The Aristotelian Cosmos [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... The work of Claudius Ptolemy, who made a mathematical model of Aristotle's cosmos in his great work the Almagest, gave scientific substance to that vast uniformitarian system which lasted for almost 2,000 years. It has been assumed by many who have not studied this ancient paradigm that, in the culmination of Ptolemy with fundamental support from Aristotelian deductive physics, he produced a perfect system that incorporated and fit the data then known. This, I suggest, is very farm from true. Both the physics and the mathematical model were riddled with contradictions. And these were known by the educated of the ancient world who studied these matters. That being the case, why then did this ...
34. New Physics Supports Planetary Catastrophism [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1998:2 (Mar 1998) Home | Issue Contents New Physics Supports Planetary Catastrophism by Wallace Thornhill Wallace Thornhill lives in Canberra, Australia. Discovering Velikovsky before entering Melbourne University, he began his interdisciplinary studies along with a BSc in physics. Alert to those scholars with pieces to the puzzle of planetary catastrophism, his passion is to assemble the big picture'. Summary The strongest conventional argument against planetary involvement in prehistoric catastrophes is that a Newtonian system should have some orbits showing evidence of recent encounters. It is argued that the fault in this argument lies in our misunderstanding of the nature of gravity. Evidence is presented that certain planets ...
... The conclusion from thus discovery would naturally be, that these institutions, notions, and monuments, are founded in an original connection, especially as such a conclusion is in strict harmony with popular prejudices. But file philosophical mind will hesitate in accepting it, without inquiring how far similar conditions, and like constitutions, mental, moral, and physical, may serve to approximate institutions, religions, and monuments to a common or cognate type. The opinions of former scholars cannot be taken as conclusive in this inquiry; for at no previous period of file world's history have the materials for prosecuting it been so abundant as now. The great collateral questions of natural science which have been ...
36. Seti's Foreign Connections [Journals] [Kronos]
... . MODERN VERSUS ANCIENT PHILOSOPHY Even as late as the Nineteenth Century, it was not regarded as disgraceful for philosophers to present both logical methodology and substantive world-views in their writings. It is a curiosity of our times that the most influential of the philosophers professing interest in science should be dedicated to reducing philosophy to language analysis in which substantive, physically significant statements are prohibited. A principal cause of difficulties in modern philosophy lies in an arbitrary ruling that all philosophy must be either a construction or an analysis of deductive systems. Since, in a deductive system, false statements can only be contradictions, and since from a false proposition any proposition can be deduced, one false postulate necessarily ...
37. Pompous Asimov [Books]
... Ginenthal said, Einstein to an extent supported Velikovsky, and was Einstein not a scientist?) as to note how wrong Asimov is about what the hard sciences really are. He has just spoken of the "hard and fast" results of science, especially by physicists and astronomers, but consider the following short observations made about astronomy and physics by "real" astronomers and "real" physicists, some of whom may be even better-known than Asimov. 1. "We can only see nature blurred by the clouds of dust we ourselves make." (Sir James Jeans) 2. The laws of science "are a description, not of nature, but of the ...
38. Hereditary Monarchy in Assyria and the Assyrian Kinglist [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... and Princess Diana. We have almost experienced the entire gestation period of their child, the future king of England. Millions of newspaper pictures, private photographs, and newsreels depict the royal infant with his proud family. All these things contribute to establish his claim to the throne of England. And if this were not enough to verify his physical claim to that seat of honor, we can consult his birth certificate, baptism record, and blood test information, all duly certified. This entire sequence of events bears unmistakable witness to the physical continuation of the House of Windsor- and the reality of hereditary monarchy in England. Stepping back ageneration we can be reasonably confident of the ...

40. The Electric Universe [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2000:1 "Proceedings of the SIS Silver Jubilee Event" Home | Issue Contents The Electric Universe By Wal Thornhill Wal Thornhill was exposed to interdisciplinary thinking when he read Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision in the 1950s. He obtained a degree in physics at Melbourne University. He took up a career in computing with IBM and then the Australian Government, using the opportunities they provided to attend university seminars regularly and continue his own research. He took up the question of an Electric Universe after visiting Velikovsky in 1979. He was a committee member of the SIS during the 1980s and is now working with David Talbott, author of The Saturn Myth ...
