... person; though I heard rumors of one deal that he put through which gave me the ghost of a doubt about the matter. ' Or, `Judging by their red shift, quasars are among the most distant objects in the universe, and I tend to believe this to be the truth of the matter; but the intensity of ... radio signals reaching us from them tells somewhat against this view, particularly as alternative theories which might account for the red shift have been proposed."14 At this rate, Feyerabend's objection seems not to stand; though one could wish that it was clearer, from Popper's own account, that falsification or corroboration is apt to be a gradual ...

... side of the Earth always facing Saturn. Proto-Saturn is vast in comparison to Earth and perhaps much larger than the body we know today. Consider it about the smallest possible red dwarf star or a brown dwarf star, and it is dying. For eons it had sustained by radiant energy the spark of life on its largest planet Earth and ... airless and has a surface albedo of only 7%. The surface is heavily cratered, has extensive smooth basaltic plains and crustal rifts, but shows no sign of crustal shifting. Although dormant volcanos are few and small, many surface features are indicative of lava flows. Many craters appear to have been caused by meteoric impacts, and ejecta ...

... the outer shells of the earth over the liquid core" down to a depth of several hundred miles.(15) Later, Ma hypothesized that Globigerina ooze alternating with red clay results from the repeated sudden displacements of the solid Earth. "When the solid earth shell is displaced the depth of the ocean floor shifted from lower to higher ... would be suddenly reduced so that a region for red clay rises into the level for accumulation of Globigerina ooze and a lamina of Globigerina ooze is laid on until it gradually sinks back to below 4,000 meters depth with resumption to normal depth and the deposition of red clay continues."(16) Ma, it should be noted ...

... , the stars in their billions continue this cleansing and nearly complete this dust removal process toward the end of the cycle. A further action involves the increase of mostly old red stars in the galactic nucleus which causes it to expand. As we saw with spiral barred galaxies, the central galactic body eventually absorbed most of the gas, dust ... the sources with respect to the Earth. But for this to be valid, the source must be moving toward the Earth at nearly the speed of light and their light shifts should be toward the blue end of the spectrum. Halton Arp explains the dilemma: "The necessary rationalization finally adopted [to explain away faster than light motions] ...

... analysis. In short, the thesis was put forward that the mythology of the world's great heroes commemorated- at least in part- the ancient appearance and activities of the red planet in relation to its celestial neighbors. If the ancients' identification of Heracles with the planet Mars has a rational basis it will provide us with an invaluable foundation ... a tree, yea, a bulrush in mid-current. Within his skin he put forth an unnatural effort of his body: his feet, his shins, and his knees shifted themselves and were behind him...Then his face underwent an extraordinary transformation: one eye became engulfed in his head so far that tis a question whether a ...

... 6,000 or even 5,000 years." (22) Three hundred years earlier, Edmund Halley had suggested making longitudinal studies of the saline buildup of the Red Sea in order to measure the accretion rate and thus determine the age of our planet- this procedure, he was sure, would demonstrate the falsity of James Usher's ... about 500 years out of step with reality. For Velikovsky it was an easy choice. He naturally assumed the Jewish sequence to be correct. But to make any major shift in one period entailed making numerous others all along the chronological continuum. And Egypt would not be the only country affected, since all non-Mesopotamian and non-Israelite histories, lacking ...

According to Sagan: Now the Pharoah eventually relents, the Israelites are permitted to leave- there's, according to Exodus, a few hundred thousand of them, they approach the Red Sea, the host of the Pharoah follows them, the Pharoah hardens his heart again, and Moses has a rod and taps it on a rock and the Red ... and to raise the spectre of some brave student questioning the likelihood that physicians would sweeten their coffee with kerosene instead of sugar. That would never do. The crowd might shift its ridicule and laughter from the strawman to the man of straw. Sagan says that "nobody else noticed all this food falling from the sky." But it ...

... fiery ether tore away huge stones and masses from the Earth and heated them to incandescence to create the stars. He said that the Sun was not a god but a red hot mass many times larger than the Peloponnesus. More importantly, he held that pieces of the stones still in space fell upon the Earth as meteorites. He maintained ... .
