291. Indra [Journals] [Kronos]
... indicated above, does not bear this out. Although they eventually became Indra's companions, the Maruts owed their origin, not to Venus and/or Mars, but directly to Saturn/Agni-Rudra/Shiva(12) who fathered them. I am well aware of Bob Forrest's recent critique of Velikovsky as I am of his acceptance of the uniformitarian interpretation of the Maruts as mere storm gods.(13) Forrest's judgement, like Velikovsky's own, is however based on the laudatory hymns of the Rig Veda. There is more to the Maruts than that. Forrest, like Velikovsky, whom he criticizes for being selective, failed to take the origin, history, and evolution of ...
292. Editorial [Journals] [SIS Review]
... .I .S ., a Symposium on the work of Immanuel Velikovsky took place at McMaster University in Canada. Sixty of the participating scholars signed a statement circulated by Professor Lynn Trainor (a physicist at Toronto University) which read as follows: Catastrophism has in recent years emerged as an interesting and respectable alternative to theories based on a uniformitarian viewpoint of planetary history. While we do not necessarily subscribe to the Velikovsky reconstruction of events in the Solar System within historic times, we do recognize Velikovsky's central contribution in establishing the possible role of catastrophic events as an important aspect of any interpretation of the past .. . we would urge the scientific community, in the best traditions ...

294. CANEPA: BOOK REVIEW [Journals] [Aeon]
... this conflict remains unresolved to this day. The degree of ignorance concerning comets which the authors discuss is startling. Erroneous views of the nature of comets can be documented from Aristotle to Tycho Brahe's time. Consider also the unwillingness to accept the possibility of meteorites striking the Earth up until the 18th century. The authors also discuss the dogma of uniformitarianism, with its hundred-year hold on science, and admit that, despite some consensus, we are still left with many enigmas and awkward facts. Over 500 pages long the book offers a compendium of the various cometary theories that have sprung up through the years with ample references to past works on the subject. If the work can lay ...
295. Society News (AGM 2000) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... taken literally. His conclusions did not bode well for some chronological reconstructions. We were then very pleased to be able to welcome Han Kloosterman who used to edit a catastrophist geology journal, perhaps familiar to longer standing members, and whose long experience of geology in Brazil had led him to question and come into conflict with the accepted norms of uniformitarian' geology. Due to a misprint we had publicised his talk as Cosmic Bullets: the Massacre and the Cover-up' whereas it should really have been Cosmic Blitz'. Han pointed out that he had chosen the word Blitz specifically for its meaning of lightning' and its association with the catastrophic destruction of London during World War II. ...
296. Nuclear Geological Dating [Books]
... from the beginning of geological thought students of the Earth have endeavoured to devise a method for the measurement of the absolute age of rocks and the Earth as a whole. A large number of diverse approaches led to a large number of diverse results. Nineteenth-century geologists differed widely in their opinions.They could be classed in three groups: the uniformitarians, led by Lyell, believed that the age of the Earth was essentially infinite; a more moderate group, influenced largely by Darwin, held that the age of the Earth was several hundred million years; but the revolutionists, under the leadership of Lord Kelvin, had the shortest and most accurate estimate, 24 million years, established ...
297. Book Review [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... attractive and readable, yet does not take short-cuts in the presentation of the arguments. The illustrations and production are magnificent. Most of all, the history and development of the evolutionary hypothesis is admirably set forth. Leakey deserves credit for recognising the often-overlooked importance of Sir Charles Lyell's Principles of Geology , first published in 1830, which established the Uniformitarian thesis as the accepted orthodoxy of geology - that the forces which shaped the surface of the earth throughout its history are the same which we see at work today. Charles Darwin's grandfather, Erasmus, and Jean Baptiste Lemarck are given their full credit as the intellectual forebears of evolution; but evolutionary theories widely accepted throughout the Hellenic and Roman ...
298. Velikovsky: The Score of Success [Journals] [SIS Review]
... (Pensee, Winter 1973-4) that the spectral features in the ultrared, near infrared, infrared, and deep infrared can be accounted for by organic matter, as can the volatility and index of refraction. The retrograde, backward rotation of Venus was confirmed by the Goldstone Radar Tracking Station in 1962. This was absolutely inconceivable under the accepted uniformitarian model of the Solar System. The best the American Geophysical Union could come up with was: "Maybe Venus was created apart from the other planets, perhaps as a secondary solar explosion, or perhaps in a collision of planets." (4 ) Velikovsky's model, of course, was not recognised. Further, UCLA astronomers P ...
