She must be interrogated by questions which already contain the answer she is to give; in other words, the observer can only observe that which he is led by hypothesis to look for', wrote Sir Ray Lankester in 1880.23 `We stand before the Earth like a ...
142. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... which Dr Ransom has assembled less accessible, and secondly, there are an unduly large number of irritating misprints (Professor Danjon appears several times as Dajon, to take just one example). However these points will no doubt be dealt with in the future editions of the work which will certainly be required. AGER'S NEO-CATASTROPHISM THE NATURE OF THE STRATIGRAPHICAL RECORD by D. V. Ager (Dent, 1973) JAN TERASMAE THIS REVIEW, ORIGINALLY WRITTEN FOR PENSÉE, WAS EXCLUDED FROM THE FIRST ISSUE OF "CATASTROPHIST GEOLOGY" FOR REASONS OF SPACE. IT WAS FORWARDED TO US BY HAN KLOOSTERMAN AND IS INCLUDED HERE BY KIND PERMISSION OF DR KLOOSTERMAN AND THE AUTHOR. The history of ...
143. Chronology And Cosmic Catastrophism [Books]
... impoverishment, and during which many peoples migrated, often to distant places. C. F. A. Schaeffer has shown in a remarkable way the contemporaneity in the downfall of civilizations over a great section of our planet (from Europe to the Far East), 5 and he categorically concludes that the contemporaneous destruction-layers, found in the archaeological stratigraphy on many sites of Eurasia, can only be the result of catastrophes and events which were not provoked by man's action.6 2. C. F. A. Schaeffer presumes that the catastrophes which caused the end of civilizations in Eurasia originated in devastating earthquakes which shook the world. He mentions that many sites show that the destructions ...
144. Bronze Age Destructions in the Near East [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Gammon Geoffrey Gammon has an Honours B.A . in History from London University and is currently studying for a Diploma in Archaeology at the Institute of Archaeology, London. He is a Council member of the Society and convener of its Ancient History Study Group. The extensive work of the eminent French archaeologist Claude Schaeffer, correlating the chronology and stratigraphy of Bronze Age sites in the Near East, led him to conclude that many of the phases of Bronze Age civilisation were ended by catastrophes "not caused by the action of man". This paper summarises Schaeffer's conclusions and their implications for both Worlds in Collision and the revised chronology. The distinguished French archaeologist Claude Schaeffer is best known ...
145. Heinsohn and the Hyksos (An Answer to Martin Sieff) [Journals] [Aeon]
... - was really the Assyrian Empire made more sense than attributing this profound influence to a relatively obscure desert tribe. On the other hand, the Hyksos period is firmly anchored in the Middle Bronze. Assyrians of the empire period were firmly placed in the Iron Age. How could Heinsohn hope to bridge this enormous archaeological gap? With Heinsohn, stratigraphic evidence comes first. If he was wrong about the Hyksos, Heinsohn said, somewhere in Egypt we should find archaeological indications of Iron Age Assyria preceded by Middle Bronze Hyksos. Stratified sites are not common in Egypt but at the very least there should be firm evidence of Assyrian conquests in the 8th and 7th centuries BCE. The Hyksos ...
146. A Further Response to Marvin Luckerman [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Catastrophism and Ancient History III:1 (Jan 1981) Home | Issue Contents INTERACTION A Further Response to Marvin Luckerman John J. Bimson In replying to my "Brief Response to Marvin Luckerman" (C &AH, I, Part 2) Mr. Luckerman makes some misleading statements concerning my scheme for revising Late Bronze and Iron Age stratigraphy. I would be grateful for space in which to correct his misunderstandings. Unlike Mr. Luckerman, I do not believe that the problem of providing a revised stratigraphy for the Ancient Near East can be solved by overlapping the Late Bronze and Iron Ages. Instead, I have suggested (in a paper delivered at the April 1978 Glasgow ...
147. Open Forum, chaired by David Fairbairn [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS C & C Review 2003 (Nov 2003) Conference Proceedings Ages Still in Chaos' Home | Issue Contents Open Forum, chaired by David Fairbairn David Davies May I ask a question from John Bimson? I enjoyed Emmet's talk even though John had some quite difficult objections to it but I noticed that he mentioned stratigraphy, he didn't talk about Mesopotamian stratigraphy where he saw problems and I was wondering whether he considered there were problems? John Bimson I didn't discuss those because I'm not an expert on Mesopotamia but I shall certainly look into them and see how solid the stratigraphies really are. I was concentrating on the area that I do know and you do get ...
148. Forum: Did Jews Fabricate Their History Between 500 and 1099AD? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Finally, Heinsohn concluded that the cultural gap he alleged for the sites of Hammath and Caesarea was characteristic for the whole of Israel . In reality, however, no such general hiatus has been detected in Israeli and other Middle Eastern excavation sites that cover the era between the Byzantine and Crusader periods . As the stratigraphies listed above illustrate, Israel's excavation sites (some of which exhibit up to three Early Arab cultural layers) do not display uniform archaeological divisions for the period between the end of the Byzantine and the beginning of the Crusader periods. The fact that up to three separate layers for the Early Arab period can be found in some locations ( ...

... terms, if taxonomic families (groups of species) are investigated instead. Jack Sepkoski of the Department of Geophysical Sciences, University of Chicago, has compiled a record of the appearance and extinction of some 3300 families of marine animals, of which about 2400 are extinct, assigning each event to within the confines of one of the internationally agreed stratigraphical stages [47-49]. Using this compilation, Sepkoski and his colleague, David Raup, saw that five extinction events, in the Late Ordovician (Ashgillian stratigraphical stage), Devonian (Frasnian), Permian (Dzhulfian), Triassic (Norian, about 220 Myr B.P .) and Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) stood out from ...
150. A Reply to Stiebing [Journals] [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 4 No 1: (Winter 1973-74) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered VI" Home | Issue Contents A Reply to Stiebing Immanuel Velikovsky Copyright 1974 by Immanuel Velikovsky Ages in Chaos and the stratigraphical record In issue #5 of the Pensee series dedicated to the reexamination of my theses, W. H. Stiebing arrived at the conclusion that the historical reconstruction of Ages in Chaos "cannot be reconciled with the stratigraphical evidence of archaeology." By stratigraphical evidence are usually meant mute artifacts, mostly pottery. The effort in my reconstruction was in shifting the emphasis to archaeological literary evidence. It is from the literary evidence that the artifacts originally obtained their meaning as ...
