181. Analogous Mountain Building [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 5 No 1 (1982) Home¦ Issue Contents Analogous Mountain Building D. A. SLADE The consideration of geology on a global scale has certain disadvantages mainly due to its enormity, thus making impractical laboratory experiments on the theories that have been evolved to explain the wealth of observed facts: in this age of electronics we ... hit upon such a simple picture requiring so little application of the imagination that a physical check would seem unnecessary; the similarity between the humps of a folded rug and the folded geological strata to be seen in most parts of any countryside was seemingly accepted in toto, without anyone thinking it necessary to question the cause that effects the ruckling, or considering how ... downwards and provide a see-saw action so raising the Sierra Nevada, or the edge might fragment and be nibbled away with frequent seismic shocks and narrowing of the coastal strip. As geologists have made no report of anything resembling this, it probably isn't happening. The simplicity of the "rug" analogy ceases to have any useful meaning when we begin to consider ...

The limitations inherent in petrofabric analyses, the paucity of information offered, and the geological diversity between Broadlaw and Kintraw mitigate severely against Mr. Bibby's conclusion. Even allowing for the above, and accepting that petrofabric analyses may have limited use as a descriptive geological tool ... 11) Compare these statements with the decidedly sparse information presented by Mr. Bibby: Five contours; no accompanying statistical data; Broadlaw and Kintraw, although geographically adjacent, are geologically dissimilar; the sites at Broadlaw were above 450m in altitude, that at Kintraw only 45m. The limitations inherent in petrofabric analyses, the paucity of information offered, and the ...

Up to now, science has not been able to determine in what corner of the globe man or his precursor made his appearance for the first time." ... that they played much of a role in the humanization and diffusion of man, except for imposing sometimes rather obvious limits upon settlement.

This boundary, too, is scarcely ... North and East across continental connections. He called the Central Atlantic bridge the "Guyana-Senegal" connection.

Han Kloosterman The articles of the first issue- and the announced articles for forthcoming issues are all of great interest, and I quite agree that there is a need for a geological 'counter-culture' journal. However, I am not sure that I am convinced by the emphasis on a conflict between catastrophism and uniformitarianism. I believe supported by geological evidence- that ... (about 9 inches). The goddess sates herself on this 'blood', and intoxicated she returns to heaven having forgotten her task(8).

... oblique collision with the Earth (45). Further work has now revealed that giant craters on Earth are discernable in spite of the masking effect of our planet's varied and complex geology. These craters appear not to have been caused by fast-moving, small meteorites but by large cosmic bodies in slower motion. Some of these "astron" craters have radii in ... in the City of London. Copyright (c) 1977 R. D. MacKinnon The material presented in "Earth in Upheaval" by Immanuel 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 ...
189. Electric Journey to Center of Earth [Thunderbolts Website]
... body moving in a large cell of plasma, explanations of all physical phenomena in, on, and near the Earth must take the electrical behavior of plasma into account. Traditional geology has over many years gradually built up a picture of the Earth's interior. Geologists assumed that gravity pulled upper layers of rock onto lower layers, uniformly increasing the pressure toward the ... . Laboratory experiments provided some indications of how rocks responded to increasing pressure and temperature, and theoretical extrapolations from these values provided a basis for guessing what could be going on far beneath the deepest drill holes. The result is the diagram above. A thin crust of light rock floats on the denser material of the mantle, which in turn surrounds an even ... because researchers have no concept of plasma behavior? No one has ever investigated how seismic waves act in different plasma conditions. The seismograph scrawls a single wavy line, but the geologist must interpret it according to a choice among several competing theories. With the awareness of plasma, seismographs no longer provide reliable --or even understandable --information about conditions at depth. Plasma ...

... mass-wasting” on a scale never before imagined. Prior models of planetary evolution had envisioned an isolated and inactive surface remaining undisturbed for billions of years. At best only modest internal geology was anticipated, and certainly nothing on the scale presented by Valles Marineris. In the early 1970s, however, one of the true scientific pioneers of the 20 th century, ... chasm. Since olivine readily reacts with water, its presence clearly excluded water erosion. What force, then, could have removed two million cubic kilometers from the Martian surface? Geologists began to speculate about “unknown” causes of surface spreading and “mass-wasting” on a scale never before imagined. Prior models of planetary evolution had envisioned an isolated and inactive ... , one of the true scientific pioneers of the 20 th century, Ralph Juergens, proposed that in an earlier epoch of planetary upheaval, electrical arcs between celestial bodies created many geologic features of the Moon and Mars. As for Valles Marineris, Juergens wrote in 1974 — “..this entire region resembles nothing so much as an area zapped by a powerful electric ...
