... even more incredible, they refuse to learn from experience. They will continue to make the same mistakes over and over again." Arthur C. Clarke, Profiles of the Future, (NY 1984), p. 21 A scientific appendix is added to a paper to prove the material already presented. The author must employ the proper physics and the proper mathematical equations. Furthermore, the physical and mathematical models presented must also conform to those physical and mathematical models which have been accepted by science as properly applicable to the problem under discussion. The appendix should prove mathematically that the conclusions raised by the author are valid based on indisputable scientific evidence. This is what is required ...
82. Stephen Jay Gould and Immanuel Velikovsky [Books]
... What Gould, like all the others, provides in this case, is unsubstantiated statements. He asks the reader to accept his word as the real truth for his position, but presents no evidence to substantiate his statement about whether or not the older sources are correct or not. This is sheer authoritarianism. In order to show that Velikovsky's physical evidence, presented in Earth in Upheaval, is clearly wanting, and that the catastrophic evidence Velikovsky presents is invalid, Gould argues, "If the testimony of [ancient] human narrators provided the evidence for Worlds in Collision, then the geologic record itself must suffice for Earth in Upheaval. Velikovsky's entire argument hinges on his reading of ...
83. The Science of Catastrophism [Articles]
... No less than that is the puzzle we are all at work on together. The result is the science of catastrophism. It is highly interdisciplinary, for the speakers you will hear this weekend come from many fields and from many countries on three continents. To give you an idea of the areas which catastrophism involves, they include astronomy and physics and astrophysics and geophysics, myth and folklore and religion and classical literature, mathematics and linguistics and statistics, palaeontology and archaeology and archaeoastronomy and calendrics, and literature, history, politics and psychology, (and that is only a partial list). From each of these fields, a stream of evidence is being accumulated which seems to ...
84. The Importance of Outsiders in Science [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 1983. A founder member of SIS, he has contributed to its journals and to JACF. In his spare time he has edited SIS Workshop (1982-1990) and Review (1987-1995). Summary Outsiders - people from outside the discipline - have contributed enormously during the history of science. To scientific outsiders we owe many of the laws of physics and chemistry, the foundation of new disciplines, innumerable inventions and vital discoveries. Herewith a roll-call of the most famous and important, with a discussion of the implications for our interdisciplinary studies. We humans have multi-potential. Even after honing a skill or specialising in a particular field, an individual may (and often will) branch out ...
85. Geophysical Time Series and Catastrophism [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... * m where the weights are T-k, with 0.5 <k <1 .5 . The fBn can possess any value of h ob 5erved in historic series and it(or ratherits approximations) has been Successfully used asan operational model for hydrologic series. The problem is, however, that this mathematical model implies that the modelled physical process has an infinite memory of a peculiar kind: the formation of each new term of the series requires that all the past values be available (i .e . stored) since their original values are repeatedly used and modified by different coefficients (weights) in every step. Such a mechanism can be easily visualized in economic time ...
86. Crack in Einstein's Pedestal [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... tests should show that the effect was even faster, near-instantaneous, and therefore could be detected in two separate places at once. .. . Article: The research is already causing controversy among physicists. What bothers them is that if light could travel forward in time it could carry information. This would breach one of the basic principles in physics - causality, which says that a cause must come before an effect. It would also shatter Einstein's theory of relativity since it depends in part on the speed of light being unbreachable. Thornhill: The problem only arises if we cling to Einstein's theory. It is more sensible to suggest that it is not possible to travel in time ...
87. Requirements For The Convection Cell [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... question of continental drift, the idea of which has had a stormy reception in scientific circles, from what may have been its first inception when Sir Francis Bacon noticed continental shoreline similarities in 1620, through the middle of the nineteenth century exponents, to the modern upsurge started by Taylor in 1910 and Wegener in 1915. In his PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICAL GEOLOGY written in 1929, Arthur Holmes first proposed that mantle convection currents were responsible for continental drift; and lacking any physical evidence, there it rested until Hess provided a convincing hypothesis. Hess also suggested that proof may be demonstrated by the magnetic studies initiated by Frederick J.Vine and Drummond H.Matthews in 1965 and concluded in ...
88. Relativity Corner [Journals] [SIS Review]
... individual has his own personal measure of time that depends on where he is and how he is moving. '. What is most interesting and challenging for anyone dipping a toe into the waters of Einsteinian dissent is the sheer variety of the approaches adopted by critics. Some discuss the mathematics but most steer clear, sticking to the logic and physical questions; some concentrate on Special Relativity but others also tackle the General Theory; some support a return to classical mechanics, others favour reinstating the idea of the ether' and yet there are others who will have none of these ideas, insisting that the principles of relativity are correct and only the mathematics and logic of the particular version ...
89. Tisserand and a Trojan to the Rescue [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... register with them, although I may be wrong. My primary hope is that the readers benefit from this enhanced insight in order to understand that Patten's model is a "just so" story with as much explanatory power as fairies and spirits, totally devoid of quantitative support. Just as one does not need a Ph.D . in physics nor a grant from the National Science Foundation to know the fate of Humpty Dumpty, neither does one need such to understand that planet Mars cannot have performed the magic 2:1 resonance with Earth prior to 701 B.C . as Patten insists. My prefatory quote from Black Athena was completely lost on Patten and Hatch: " ...
90. Velikovsky and his Critics by Shane Mage [Books]
... raised by Velikovsky have crucial significance for the widest range of particular sciences, and it is appropriate that they have become the matter of broad interdisciplinary discussion. The participants in the phase of this debate here considered are qualified scientific workers in the fields of history, medicine, astronomy, sociology, philosophy, statistics, chemistry, engineering, and physics, and the author of this book is an economist. "There have been, and will be hereafter, many and various destructions of mankind, of which the greatest are by fire and water, and lesser ones by countless other means. Thus the story current also in your part of the world that Phaethon, son of Hellos ...
