By contrast, MacKinnon writes (Workshop 4:3, pp. 37-8) that they are testimony in support of catastrophism on a massive scale.

4. A Catastrophist Reading of Religious Systems [SIS C&C Review $]
... . In my opinion, because I accept Velikovsky's theory in general, I believe it is these fears together which oppress mankind, and that they have inhabited us from the first catastrophe our ancestors witnessed. I will call them the Triple Terror (for the individual, the species and the world), and it is in this light that I will carry ... reconstruction of specific events. I will try to show that each of the world's successful religions and cosmologies can be explained as a collective unconscious response to collective ancestral experience of Velikovsky-type catastrophes, of times when the world seemed about to end, and that out of the fears that these events generated have come our pictures of the natural and numinous worlds which enthral ...

... changes are slow and find a global contradiction to it, the belief system comes into play and the evidence is ignored. What would create such a global phenomenon except a global catastrophe?

However, Reginald Daly saw through this uniformitarian scheme to limit catastrophes to unique, local events. It is derived from the theory that these beaches, all over the world, have been raised by forces shoving up from below. At each ... with respect to the doctrine of uniformity, promulgated in the last century by James Hutton and Charles Lyell. With the acceptance of their doctrine came a historical revision in science --from catastrophism to uniformitarianism --that directed research along gradualist paths which admitted no major violent breaks in the geological record. The concept, in 1950, was so deeply entrenched that, when Immanuel ...
