301. A question for Wal (and Amy and...) [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... some way for us to offer a decisive test or prediction on the issue of Mars only recently assuming its present position in the solar system? Wal replies: A very good question Ev. The problem we face is that surrounding the word "recent". All of the radioactive dating techniques, crater counting and so on, rely on uniformitarian assumptions. Data that contradicts those assumptions is either ignored or patched into the standard paradigm with more sticking plaster. The results from the Apollo lunar missions demonstrate that. Ev continues: On the matter of remanent magnetism, would this show a unique signature which would preclude it from originating under the present Martian environment? The same question applies ...
302. Vox Popvli [Journals] [Aeon]
... and Shapley for their contributions? Carr's Introduction is innocuous, except for a short discussion on the distinction between science fiction and science. Shapley's Epilogue, on the other hand, bears analyzing (even though it sounds amazingly familiar). Shapley's main criticism to Doyle's book amounts to the following: It could never happen (shades of his usual uniformitarianism- just as he claimed that the near-colliding worlds of Velikovsky could never happen) Doyle was not a scientist (and understood nothing of scientific import- just as Velikovsky was not an astronomer and understood nothing of astronomical import) Doyle relies on the long disclaimed ether (which professional scientists know not to exist- just as Velikovsky relied on ...
303. Ancient Astronauts [Books] [de Grazia books]
... Much of the material that finds its way into the writings about "ancient astronauts" consist of exotica (" Did you know that...?" and "Believe it or not, but..."), or of questions aimed at needling archaeologists and prehistorians about their many anomalies, oversights and unknowns. Catastrophists and uniformitarians alike usually reject the theory indignantly. Von Daniken himself is excoriated for his meanderings, his lack of logic, pretentiousness, vagueness, unscholarly innuendos, and profit-taking in the market of ideas. Still it seems odd that scientists such as C. Sagan, who earned fame and fortune in part from writing science fiction, should denounce the ...
304. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... brief mention of this book in S.I .S . Newsletter 2 (Sept. 1975) but I did not read it before The Reversing Earth by Peter Warlow. It came as a revelation and is truly described in the Introduction as an Earth-shaking book. It was written when most scientists followed Lyell and Darwin in their belief in uniformitarianism, mainly because this represented a liberation from the prevalent irrational style of religious teaching. It is extraordinary that this belief is still firmly held by many scientists today, although Gallant's book alone gives convincing evidence to the contrary, including calculations on the deflection of the Earth's axis and rate of spin due to impacts by giant meteorites. The ...

306. Notes on this issue: Pensee IVR X [Journals] [Pensee]
... observatories; and the astronomical sophistication assigned to their builders borders on the fantastic. Dr. Euan MacKie (p . 5) examines these claims and finds them correct, at least in part; his own fieldwork has provided one of the most impressive pieces of evidence supporting the astronomical interpretation-all of which renders the megalithic monuments crucial for testing both uniformitarian and catastrophic theories. In "Megalithic Astronomy and Catastrophism," MacKie assesses the evidences with admirable lucidity. As a bonus, he grants us a preview of his forthcoming book on Stonehenge. Velikovsky (p . 21) comes forth with another one of those chapters from the unpublished sequels to Ages in Chaos. This one, titled ...

308. When the Earth Nearly Died: Compelling Evidence of a Catastrophic World Change 9,500 BC [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... . Unfortunately, impressive as I found Allen and Delair's research and arguments concerning much of the geological evidence, even this was seriously flawed. The book begins with a history of the development of the theory of ice-ages, in which the evidence formerly used to support belief in recent, catastrophic flood was eventually turned to support belief in rather more uniformitarian ice-ages. The authors make a very convincing case for using this evidence once again to support ideas of massive flooding and, as even orthodox datings give the end of the last ice-age as about 11,000 years ago, seem within striking distance of their compelling evidence' for a world catastrophe at 9,500 BC. I turned ...
309. The Big Bang Never Happened [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the work of Hannes Alfven, a Swedish plasma physicist, who has extended his ideas from research on nuclear fusion power containment to the solar system, the galaxy and finally cosmology. This is the section that members of the SIS may well find of interest. Perhaps unfortunately from our point of view, Alfven takes as his starting point the uniformitarian dogma that the evolution of the universe must be explicable in terms of the processes occurring in the universe today'. The plasma universe .. . is formed and controlled by electricity and magnetism, not just gravitation - it is, in fact, incomprehensible without electrical currents and magnetic fields' (p . 41). Alfven's laboratory ...

... : SIS Internet Digest 2000:1 (May 2000) Home | Issue Contents Announcements Lectures on the Saturn Model and the Electric Universe The following 3 slide-lectures have been prepared for presentation: Synthesis of evidence for big-picture view. This lecture covers a wide range of evidence for the Saturn Model and reflects on fundamental implications, including the collapse of uniformitarianism and gradualism, the influence on the world religions and theology, and the impact on racial psychology. Includes segments on: (a ) Role of the Polar Configuration in the Saturn Model (b ) Universal myth of the Golden Age (c ) Universal myth of different ages and different "suns" (d ) Global geo-physical evidence ...
