The lack of any general homogeneity has led Moon geologists to reject the notion of any external cause, such as the one Velikovsky predicted.

(61) With the riverine flood theory more or less debunked, the pendulum may swing back (62) to the 1920s and 1930s when a cosmic origin of many clay deposits on the Earth was being discussed in both geology (63) and astronomy.

When, two decades later, geologists found out that the water of the Shatt el Arab, around which the flood yielding sites are located, is practically silt-free, (54) the riverine theory could no longer ...

It isn't even the newer Solar System they had packed their bags and moved to. Cosmic Catastrophism Eventually, of course, astronomers, geologists, and even historians, decided to jump on the cosmic catastrophism band-wagon. It was bound to happen. All of which brings to mind a conversation that Ev Cochrane, the ...

... . Like Velikovsky, Donnelly is not intimidated by the artificial boundaries between various so-called disciplines. He draws his evidence from astronomy and history, legend and myth, as well as geology and paleontology. One difference between Donnelly and Velikovsky is a nominal one. Whereas the latter has a separate book, Earth in Upheaval (1955)-- on most of ... geological and paleontological evidence for his theory-- Donnelly incorporates all of his material into one volume. But discounting the clues Donnelly uncovers in his investigation of science, Ragnarok, again like Worlds in Collision, is primarily a compendium of ancient history, legend, and myth-- and his analysis of myth anticipates Velikovsky's. While neither man refers to Euhemerus ...

... comes after the "bronze ages" which follow the "Stone-ages." These terms and divisions now only perpetuate confusion in anthropology, history, philosophy, and perhaps even in geology. Thus, a common reference, the Columbia Encyclopedia, thinks that meteoric iron beads existed in Egypt as early as 4000 B.

In Angola and Rhodesia, as well as in South Africa, there are smaller deposits.

Indeed the phenomenon of "erosion" that is basic to uniformitarian geology is largely derivative. It is an attenuated effect of the catastrophes that carved canyons and raised mountains. All of these statements will be clearer in the light of later chapters. ... It grades, balances, and neutralizes charges to keep cosmic bodies in the state which we come to regard as "normal," that is, where time is lengthened and geological and biological processes, such as our very existence, can occur.
