... of traumatic events, apparently experienced on a global scale. Using a comparative method, he pieced together a coherent story. In support of his reconstruction he found physical evidence from geology, paleontology, and archeology. He also formulated a series of predictions-consistent with his hypothesis, but unexpected by previous theories. He predicted that the planet Jupiter would emit radio signals ... Jupiter, particularly Europa. And it is on Europa that reddish coloration is found alongside the largest furrows (they are not cracks in the ice). None of the usual geological principles are much use in interpreting the features seen on Jupiter's moons. For that matter, it remains to be seen whether they apply on Earth. "Seeing Red" seems ... the natural events shaping the surfaces of planets and moons. As our probes sent back vivid images of planetary surfaces and the surfaces of the remote moons of Jupiter and Saturn, geologists drew primarily on a count of craters to "date" the surfaces. They simply projected theoretical impact rates backwards across great spans of time, and the results were the presumed ...

A mosaic of legends from the Near East, Greece, Italy, China, and the Americas could be fashioned, and enough geological evidence would be assembled to tolerate the suppositions of the legends.

Immanuel Velikovsky, as you probably know, is a highly controversial figure whose book Worlds in Collision incited the wrath of a number of astronomers and geologists twelve years ago. Several other works dealt with similar themes of prehistoric catastrophe, social upheavals, and the origins of myth. Another book, somewhat distinct, is Oedipus and ...

From: Catastrophist Geology Year 1 No. 1 (June 1976) Home¦ Issue Contents Catastrophist Geology Han Kloosterman A magazine to be dedicated to the Study of discontinuities in Earth history Circulated among the participants of the Charles Lyell centenary symposium, London. Uniformitarianism holds that the processes governing the Earth's organic and inorganic past were the same as those apparent today ... if we do not accept catastrophes in evolution we have to postulate major gaps in the sedimentary record. We can of course, by retrograde extrapolation over millions of years, relate geological features to the cumulative effects of now active small-scale agents such as the raindrop and the sandgrain. Without this method of research geology cannot exist. But to state that it is ... and inorganic past were the same as those apparent today, and that they operated then at the same intensity and rate as now. When they consider this definition thoughtfully, many geologists realize that they do not really agree with it. Too many events in the Earth's history do not fit a uniformitarian system- enormous calderas, plateau basalts, ice ages, ...

Gradualism superseded Catastrophism. Darwin's and Lyell's world ... new kinds of animals and plants, by God's hand.

In his major work, Principles of Geology, Lyell said that abrupt transitions in the geological record would one day be shown to be ... , the great French geologist and naturalist Baron Georges Cuvier proposed what came to be known as the Catastrophe theory, or Catastrophism. According to the theory, the abrupt faunal changes geologists saw in rock strata were the result of periodic devastations that wiped out all or most extant species, each successive period being repopulated with new kinds of animals and plants, by ...

EDITORIAL PREFACE: Theories ... 8. This has been known from the time when coal and associated strata were beginning to receive detailed attention over 100 years ago. The swing in the early nineteenth century by geologists to concepts of uniformity and geological ages influenced the palaeoecological interpretation of Spirorbis. Obviously the "bog theory" of coal formation cannot accommodate the abundant presence of a marine organism. ...
