21. Geomagnetic Reversals? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... is at present a technical researcher for the photographic industry in Essex. Data drawn from a wide range of disciplines suggests an unorthodox explanation of reversals of the earth's magnetic field: inversions of the earth itself, possibly caused by the close passage of a cosmic body, can also explain numerous other phenomena in the earth's history. Reversals in the polarity of the earth's magnetic field have preoccupied earth scientists for nearly three decades, during which time the topic has taken up much space in the specialist journals. The prevailing assumption is that on numerous occasions the field has flipped' - though it is not known how or why; and a continuing puzzle is the absence of indications for a ...
22. Numerical Analysis of Planetary Distances in a Polar Model [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:4 (July 1999) Home | Issue Contents Numerical Analysis of Planetary Distances in a Polar Model Emilio Spedicato Abstract Starting with David Talbott, several scholars have argued that, during the phase of human prehistory, the Solar System was radically different than now, the planets being aligned with the Sun during their revolution, with Saturn in a dominating position (the Polar Model). In this paper, the planetary alignment equations introduced by Robert Gru-baugh, [1 ] and studied in a previous paper by Spe-dicato and Huang, are modified by taking into account the barycenter of the system. The equations constitute a nonlinear underdetermined system of m -1 equations and ...
23. Corals Of The Polar Regions. Ch.4 Ice (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... From "Earth in Upheaval" © 1955 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Corals Of The Polar Regions Spitsbergen in the Arctic Ocean is as far north from Oslo in Norway as Oslo is from Naples. Heer identified 136 species of fossil plants from Spitsbergen (78o 56' north latitude), which he ascribed to the Tertiary Age. Among the plants were pines, firs, spruces, and cypresses, also elms, hazels, and water lilies. At the nothernmost tip of Spitsbergen Archipelago, a bed of black and lustrous coal twenty-five to thirty feet thick was found; it is covered with black shale and sandstone encrusted with fossilized land plants. "When ...
24. Discussion Comments From the Floor [Journals] [Aeon]
... some kind into our atmosphere, deposition would have been worldwide with preferential settling at the poles. Velikovsky claimed such dust as was deposited caused 40 years of darkness. He also believed that the Worzel ash evidenced the Venus events and if that ash was deposited as Velikovsky insisted, the analogous deposits should have been seen by gross confrontation in the polar ice. There is none. To me this is a clear-cut test for a catastrophe. Although Lynn Rose did respond to my data, none of his criticism of ice core results is valid. Indicative of his lack of understanding is the fact that he did not even take thinning with depth into account when estimating the date of the ...
25. Solar System Studies (Part 2) [Journals] [Aeon]
... nitrogen, 21% oxygen, 1% argon and traces of other gasses. And it is warm enough to retain light density fluids at its surface, which happen to be saltwater in its seas, oceans and trapped lakes, and fresh water in its lakes with outlets and rivers except where it is impounded as ice in its glaciers and polar ice caps. The presence of free oxygen in its atmosphere and water on its surface makes Earth unique in the Solar System and has created the necessary environment for teeming organic life in numberless types and forms. Tiny plankton in the sea, together with a great abundance of plant life, give off oxygen and steadily remove carbon dioxide from ...
26. Long Term Violation of Uniformitarianism Demonstrated by Fossil Discoveries in Polar Regions [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1991 No 2 (Jan 1992) Home | Issue Contents HORIZONS Long Term Violation of Uniformitarianism Demonstrated by Fossil Discoveries in Polar Regions (An address to be read in absentia for the November 1991 Haliburton seminar) Notwithstanding his documented shortcomings, Immanuel Velikovsky, more than any other individual, was the catalyst for the revival of catastrophist thought in the space and earth sciences since World War Two. The Alvarez paper of 1980 sparked the productive phase of modern catastrophism, with ordinary scientists publishing findings that supported a hypothesized catastrophe of meteoric or cometary collision at the K-T boundary. Over 80 scientific reports support this disruptive event of 65 million years ago. ...
27. A Hemisphere Travels Southward, Part 2 Mars Ch.7 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... From "Worlds in Collision" © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents A Hemisphere Travels Southward "Behold the world bowing with its massive dome- earth and ex- panse of sea and heaven's depth!"- VIRGIL Eclogues iv. 50 The change in the position of the poles carried the polar ice outside the new polar circle, while other regions were brought into the polar circle. There is nothing imperative in the present position of the pole or in the direction of the polar axis. No known astronomical or geological law requires the present direction of the axis and the present position of the pole. I find a similar thought in the writings of ...
28. Discussion Questions From the Floor [Journals] [Aeon]
... the cap's central regions. I see no reason why the record of accumulation in the interior of an ice cap is necessarily compromised by the fact that melting around the edges exceeds interior accumulation. What Hall has written about ice cores fails to discredit the conventional understanding of their make-up. While I applaud AEON's publication of Ashton's brilliant critique of the polar Saturn idea, it needs to be pointed out that he is incorrect with respect to tidal bulges and the mantle penetrating crust. The mantle will not protrude the crust under the tidal influence of any distorting body for much the same reason that heavy and light bodies do not fall at different rates in a gravitational field. A lead ball ...
29. The Fracture Zones In Deep Polar Ice Cores [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon III:1 (Nov 1992) Home | Issue Contents The Fracture Zones In Deep Polar Ice Cores Lynn E. Rose The fracture zones or brittle zones that have been found in several deep polar ice cores often appear to straddle- and sometimes even to coincide with- the time period during which Immanuel Velikovsky placed the interplanetary near-collisions that he described in Worlds in Collision (1950). That time period extended back from nearly 2700 years ago to nearly 3500 years ago; the principal events that Velikovsky described were two near-collisions between Earth and Venus in the middle of the second millennium, and several near-collisions between Earth and Mars in the eighth and early seventh centuries ...
30. From Myth to a Physical Model [Journals] [Aeon]
... , 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 has considerable professional experience with orbital dynamics through his work with the US Space Program. His recently-submitted model (presented in this issue of AEON) ...
