31. The Ocean [Kronos $]
... in a forthcoming book by Velikovsky titled The Test of Time. SEDIMENTS Poseidon, lord of the Ocean, was the first to come to my defense. A basic assumption of geology for the past century has been that, though the sea may encroach on land by covering coastal areas with shallow water, the continents and the oceans are primeval; what is ... "Axis Shifted". In "The Bottom of the Atlantic" and "The Floor of the Seas" I discussed sedimentary rock: it was not deposited evenly through the geological ages but erratically, most rapidly following natural disturbances on land. Further, the sedimentary layers were displaced in global catastrophes. Thus, it follows that the relative thicknesses of the ... the youthful Venus, a newcomer to the planetary family. The provenance of the water will also explain the origin of chlorine in sea water-- a problem that plagues marine geologists. For, while the land could provide sodium through erosion by rain, terrestrial rocks do not contain the requisite quantity of chlorine and are quite poor in that element. Some ...

Strom, R. J. Terrile, ... and significance of these gentle mounds, which have appeared in radar images made of the planet since 1983. Apparently the result of volcanism, the domes constitute "the most abundant geological feature on the planet" says Jayne C. Aubele of Brown University: "I'm excited about the domes and other scientists are beginning to be also" Aubele says "the ... comparatively recently, according to latest radar results. And an appreciable amount of the planet's heat may escape through these lava flows, rather than through large volcanoes and rift valleys that geologists have known for some years. In the plains the researchers found dozens of small vents, which oozed lava without forming volcanic cones. The researchers say, "The large number ...

... ) between 1861-64. Over 100 strata could be identified. Historical research suggested that two or three floods, each lasting a few days, produced them. In the history of geology anomalous discoveries in supposedly old sedimentary deposits are numerous: a Roman coin ploughed up from the prairie of Illinois [15; a doll sucked from under till and lava in Idaho ... synthesis of the elements in them. Reporting upon a telephone interview, Stephen Talbott says that Gentry "finds compelling reasons to question the entire dating scheme which undergirds our concept of geological time."

35. The Catastrophic Role of Fluid Pressure and Electromagnetic Phenomena in the Mechanics of Overthrust Faulting [Kronos $]
... which the slab of crust is displaced is called a shearplane with respect to soil and rock mechanics, and is termed a low-angle reverse fault or sole fault with respect to structural geology. The thrust sole is the lowest thrust plane in an area of overthrusting, with layers above the sole commonly imbricated. Imbrication is frequently observed in association with instantaneous displacement, ... degrees) from the horizontal, indicating that s 1, was parallel to the horizontal when the thrusting occurred (refer to Figure 1). Figure 6a. Figure 6b. Geological map and cross-section of the Arltunga Metamorphic Complex in Central Australia, where pervasive thrusts in the basement and metamorphic rock may duplicate the sequence as much as ten times. Reprinted by ... imbricated. Imbrication is frequently observed in association with instantaneous displacement, and plastic deformation is frequently associated with creep. The overthrust phenomenon becomes more enigmatic with this observation. Traditionally, geologists tried to interpret the phenomenon of overthrust faulting in terms of gravity sliding. However, in many cases the angle of the shearplane is too low (nearly parallel to the horizontal ...

... both canyons, water erosion (if any) is only coincidental. See Thornhill's article here: http://www.holoscience.com/views/view_mars.htm Since then, I've been reading geology books and websites about the Grand Canyon to see for myself how the electrical hypothesis compares with more traditional theories. Let's begin at the end, with conclusions taken from Appendix 1 ... directly, unitarily, coherently, and concisely. Furthermore, it explains ancient descriptions and depictions of high-energy events within the Solar system. And it promises to shed light on the geological data assembled by S. Warren Carey that suggests the Earth is or was expanding. Plus, it can go beyond the astronomical extrapolation of mathematical formulas that must be taken on ... how fast the river can cut...." AMY COMMENTS: To be fair, these conclusions are taken completely out of context. I deleted the hypotheses that modern geologists use to account for the data in order to emphasize the fact that Juergens' and Thornhill's electrical scarring hypothesis also fits the data: A celestial thunderbolt would be expected to 1 ...

... accounting for devastations in historical times by planetary interactions. But even his time frame of the fifteenth century B.C. is far too recent for any significant evolutionary mechanisms in biology and geology, except for extinctions and upheavals. These events may have been significant in their own right, but extant evidence for such disturbances has been admittedly sparse. Other scholars who have ... and, hence, twice the exposure to the T-tauri zephyr. Planetary Nova Students of natural history invariably run into a blank wall in the perennial quest for a primal cause of geological and paleontological events. The upheavals and extinctions, under equally bizarre circumstances, have sparked many hypotheses to account for the five major catastrophic changes closing one geological period and opening another ... and there certainly aren't enough venting mofettes, spewing atmospheric gases out of Earth's interior, to replenish what remains. Oleogenesis On one level, if we collect together a group of geologists into a committee, they will file a consensus report on orogenesis-- mountain building. On another level, on a one-for-one basis, each of them will have their own ...
38. ASTROBLEMES AND GASTROBLEMES [Aeon Journal $]
... and others (as well as their numerous coauthors) have resulted in little support for the astrobleme concept at Vredefort. Winter's assertive title, "Vredefort structure fits naturally into regional geology," led directly to his invented (?) term "gastrobleme," by which he sought to correct what he perceived as Dietz' and Grieve's misapplication of their own ... From: Aeon II:1 (1989) Home¦ Issue Contents Astroblemes And Gastroblemes C. Warren Hunt In the early nineteenth century the geological profession set catastrophism aside in favour of gradualist solutions to virtually all problems. Consequently, it was electrifying when, in 1961, Dietz and Grieve, respected geologists of the Geological Survey of Canada, proposed an ... impact to explain the Vredefort structure in South Africa. As it turns out, their attribution is not supported by myriad detailed facts that have subsequently been revealed by intensive research. Nevertheless, the stimulation of research into "astroblemes," as they called the phenomenon, has been important and productive. This paper is one of many that have resulted. But ...

... dinosaurs pretty much by what they are and what they are not. However, even here, there are contradictory opinions. One source, David Norman of the Sedgwick Museum of Geology at the University of Cambridge, says that there are four identifying characteristics: Dinosaurs lived only in the Mesozoic Era; they lived only on land; they walked upright; and ... money, but which were not in vogue at the time or conflicted with received wisdom from the then movers and shakers in scientific inquiry. An Extremely Brief History of Earth The geological and paleontological history of our planet is divided into three major eons and various subdivisions of eras, periods, and epochs. The oldest is the Archean (" ancient") ... , or the Milankovich orbital cycle, or even that the Sun has now settled down into a more mature stellar, and somewhat cooler, body after a more-or-less exuberant youthfulness. Geologists may point to extensive volcanism dumping ash and other gaseous and particulate debris into the atmosphere that could block out sunlight for extended periods of time, although this is often coupled with ...

... rivers to that of undersea canyons by way of the most famous of natural monuments, the Grand Canyon of the Colorado River. Grand Canyon is a monument also to deceased uniformitarian geology. It is so well-studied and rationalized, with long-time-term reckoning, that every geologist is expected to recite its history liturgically. Not so Cook, nor Kelly and Dachille, nor ... formulate the predicament, which still stands unresolved [8: Investigations of submarine canyons carried on for a number of years with the cooperation of the Coast and Geodetic Survey, the Geological Society of America, Scripps Institution and other organizations have revealed that these sea-floor canyons have all the characteristics of river canyons and are distinctly different from fault valleys. Also tests of ... them and their tributaries by fractures, the Rhine, the Colorado, the Susquehanna, the Indus, the Congo and others. In decoding the natural history of river beds, geologists fighting the ghosts of catastrophism have refrained from extremes. M. G. Wolman and 3. P. Miller in 1960 essayed an analysis of the "Magnitude and Frequency of ...
