This book is a review of extraordinary new hypotheses that might reasonably be characterized as 'dissenting science.' It spotlights the principal scientists-world-class thinkers all-who have proposed these theories, and the difficulties they encountered in their conclusions' challenges to existing paradigms. By laying out these theories in terms that any intelligent reader can understand, they become accessible to the non-specialist who is then able to evaluate them on their merits.

DeRosa has captured the essence of my research in a well crafted prose that will make it accessible to a wide readership. -- Robert Schoch, author of Voices of the Rocks: Catastrophes and Ancient Civilizations (Crown Publishing Group, 1999) I am impressed at how much of the substance of a very complex subject has been abstracted into simple language understandable to the non-specialist. -- Carver Mead, author ofCollective Electrodynamics (MIT Press, 2002) Well done and easy to read. Advocating unpopular theories will always be a difficult task. -- Peter Duesberg, author of Inventing the AIDS Virus (Regnery Publishing, Inc., 1997) Although I disagree with a number of points, there are no factual errors. -- Michael Behe, author of Darwin's Black Box (Simon & Schuster, 1998) In the next 10-20 years, breakthroughs are most likely to come from the pool of the 'Principals' whose ideas are discussed here. -- Tom Van Flandern, Author of Dark Matter, Missing Planets and New Comets (North Atlantic Books, 1998) It is valuable to discuss and comment on minority views in science.
