91. The Sybil and Dr Stecchini [Journals] [SIS Review]
... " .. . These conclusions attributed to Kugler... are not apparent in the work under consideration. Nor does Kugler at any point suggest, as stated by Stecchini, that Venus plays any major part in the action. His explanation of line 516 (the only mention of Venus in the passage chosen) is rooted in a uniformitarian premise... Similar uniformitarian precepts are manifest in his explanations of the Phaethon text .. ." The new edition of The Velikovsky Affair reached the shops late in October, as the copy for this issue was being finalised, and was brought to my attention by a colleague. Stecchini's response to my remarks (if such it ...
92. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the Genesis myth and was there to present us with two excerpts from his work Unravelling Genesis'. The first excerpt, concerning theories of evolution and in particular the origins of man, was read out to the audience and elicited a vigorous response from those perhaps a little stunned by some revolutionary new ideas. Zysman makes absolutely no compromise with uniformitarianism in his offering of new biological and geological theses. He contends that Earth's crust is not in any way a result of recycling old material, even catastrophically, but is formed from sudden, externally acquired accretions'. These catastrophic episodes so change the entire environment that all living things have to rapidly adapt to the new conditions. To ...
93. F. X. Kugler -- Almost a Catastrophist [Journals] [SIS Review]
... one story or another (4 ). ) BEFORE GOING ANY FURTHER - it will be as well to consider Kugler's aims in writing his study, and the underlying assumptions he started from: we will then have a clearer idea of the advance he made as a result of his research. First and foremost, Kugler was schooled in the uniformitarian mould and subject to the influence of the dogma and preconceptions current at the turn of the century; to this he added (as a member of the Jesuit order) a direct and literal approach to the Bible. This is evident in his opening remarks: from the way he examines the development of the concept of "heavenly hosts ...
94. Three Recent Volumes on Planetary Catastrophism [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:2 (Apr 1998) Home | Issue Contents Advertisement Three Recent Volumes on Planetary Catastrophism by Donald W. Patten & Samuel R. Windsor The Recent Organization of the Solar System 1996 81/2 x 11 paperback tape-bound 139 pages $30.00 Contemporary, uniformitarian dogmatists in cosmology have failed to face eight basic major Solar System issues including: The ongoing shrinkage of the Sun's diameter and cooling The sustained torching (300 F .+ ) of the surface of Mercury The acquisition of a slow, backward rotation by Venus The manner of Earth's capture of the Moon on the fly Three pairs of twin rotation rates in the Solar System.

95. The Inexact Science of Radiometric Dating [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Velikovsky indicates that there exists substantial geological evidence to support the contention that the Earth repeatedly experienced global catastrophes, some of which may have been witnessed in geologically recent times by man and recorded in his myths and legends. It is an implicit consequence of this evidence that some events commonly surmised to have required millions of years within the framework of uniformitarian suppositions must now be considered to have a duration of a few hours. Unless it is granted that uniformitarian processes demand further protraction than currently believed, then it follows that the total duration allowable for the history of the Earth must be correspondingly contracted from the 4,600 million years a majority of scientists assume to be necessary. Atomic ...
96. Comments: on the First Issue [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... ; cut down on the amount of reading for you and your helpers; cut down on the rejections; cut down on the practically useless contributions and needless reading; and save space in your magazine for really worthwhile material. I hope that you will urge your contributors to write about discoveries and about solutions to mysteries, rather than attacking the Uniformitarians. Re-hashing controversies with the Uniformitarians and the Actualists is an old thing, it's practically worthless as far as progress goes. Your last article, about the ferruginous loess in Holland and in the Mato Grosso was good. It was the only thing in your magazine that was on target. This iron distribution does suggest a catastrophe, and ...
97. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Velikovsky shows that little more than good common sense is needed to see that the supposedly "scientific" Sothic dating scheme, which is based on the authority of jottings in Greek manuscripts and not on native Egyptian documents, is founded on quite false premises. The Sothic scheme is contrived and flimsy, and fails to satisfy rigorous examination within a uniformitarian scheme, while for those who accept the basic premise of Worlds in Collision it is based on doubly false premises. Whether or not they accept the precise models of Velikovsky's reconstruction, Egyptologists must surely accept this challenge to the basis of the conventional chronology, and, though we may have to nail "Astronomy and Chronology" to the ...
98. The Science of Evolution (Concluded) [Journals] [Kronos]
... Summer 1983) Home | Issue Contents The Science of Evolution (Concluded)Bennison Gray II. GENETICS Perhaps nothing serves so well to distinguish Stansfield's The Science of Evolution (1977) from the books of Nilsson and Grassť as his unequivocal claim that "Scientists believe that the forces now operating in the world are those that have always operated (uniformitarianism), and that the universe is the result of their continuous operation" (p . 9). Not only does Grassť fail thereby to qualify as a scientist, no evidence against uniformitarianism could be used, because it fails to qualify as scientific. History is not allowed to refute scientific uniformitarianism . Of course Stansfield cannot consistently maintain ...
99. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Eocene Period in a "terminal Eocene event" (cf WORKSHOP 3:3 , p. 17-8). Ice Ages and Climate sources: NEW SCIENTIST 28/5 /81, p. 559; NATURE 4/6 /81 "News and Views" There are problems for the widely-accepted Milankovitch theory of ice-age rhythms. Over a uniformitarian time-scale of thousands or hundreds of thousands of years, so the theory goes, changes in the Earth's orbital geometry produce the ebb and flow of glaciation that constitutes "Ice Ages". As the Monitor writer for NEW SCIENTIST pointed out: "But even ardent supporters of the model have been embarrassed by the way some of these rhythms ...
100. Dance of the Planets [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... the physical evidence remaining today. Indeed, we claim that the entire body of sacred myth of all cultures is no more and no less than descriptions of close encounters of Venus and Mars with the Earth. These encounters profoundly effected our terrain, atmosphere, and ancient history in ways not imagined by modern scholars who have all bought into a uniformitarian weltanschauung. Mars was called the god of war for good reason - because it created havoc as it approached the Earth. The ensuing earthquakes and floods were used by warring nations in their battle plans. This was an exciting and dangerous time to live on Earth. Also of great interest to many, are the implications of our scenario ...
