When, in 1974, we discovered this passage, we made inquiry, only to find that the sample had never been analyzed. The long ... of copper and lead) have been reputed to fall. Such events are unknown to modern experience but are indicated by ancient legends from many places [28, and by various geological and biological phenomena [29.

... From: Catastrophist Geology Year 3 No. 2 (Dec 1978) Home¦ Issue Contents Cratonic Stability and Rapid Erosion Events Charles W. Finkl Jr Ocean Sciences Center, Nova University Port Everglades, USA. Abstract On the basis of denudation rates and erosional unconformities, conclusions are drawn regarding the relative importance of periods of slow weathering and of rapid stripping ... , prior to a recent unstable phase in the later Tertiary and Quaternary, the bedrock surface had not been effectively lowered for about 1500 Ma. Introduction The short duration of many geological catastrophes is well known, perhaps in part because of the sharp contrast with their impressive and lasting results. Earthquakes generally last not more than a few minutes, even though stresses ... may occur with great rapidity or take place repetitively over a few millions of years. Some of the short-term phenomena were appreciated by mankind long ago and were given emphasis by early geologists, but the long-term disruptive processes which escape direct observation can play an equal, if not greater, role in changing the face of the Earth. Denudation rates The mean rate ...
73. Anomalous Occurrence of Crocodilia in Eocene Polar Forests [SIS C&C Review $]
... well north of the Arctic Circle. Fossil forests have been located on Ellesmere Island and Axel Heiberg Island in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Identification of flora and fauna, and regional geological studies indicate an Eocene age and a polar latitude for these ancient forests. Field work from the summer of 1976 onwards led to the recognition of alligator and crocodile bones in the ... their origin. Especially before the adoption of the theories of continental drift and plate tectonics in the 1960s, tropical fossils found near modern glaciers posed an awkward set of problems for geologists. New field work since 1970 has shattered the easy illusion that drifting land masses 'explain' finding the tropics in the Arctic. It is now plain that since late Cretaceous time ... work of Dawson and Hickey published in Science during the 1980s. Heer's field work in places like Italy, Greenland and Spitsbergen revealed decided differences in plant remains in deposits of similar geologic age. In the Miocene, the northern limit of palm trees lay in central Germany, where evergreen forests still existed, while in Iceland at the same period deciduous trees and ...
... a scientific framework. In fact, this exceptional work led to a revolution in scientific thought during the following century. In its early stages of development as a science, historical geology supported either Neptunism or Vulcanism (these two theories advocated the major role of water or fire in forming and altering the surface of the earth, respectively). Of course, ... and modify established conceptual frameworks. In the last century, this was demonstrated in the academic and social approach to the theory of evolution in general, and the validity of the geological and paleontological records in particular. In this century, one is now asked to rethink the traditional interpretation of the dinosaurs in light of a new critical analysis of the fossil evidence ... fossil reconstructions of some of the major finds, as well as a map of sites and geologic time scale (there is a bibliography and index). In this century, geologists and paleontologists have designated the Mesozoic Era as the "Age of Reptiles" (this time period beginning about 230 million years ago and lasting until about 70 million years ago) ...

But this is puzzling because radioactive dating techniques can be applied only to volcanic rocks that contain some radioactive mineral- the primary rocks of the Earth's crust. But the geological column consists of sedimentary rocks- rocks formed from sediments laid down on the beds of ancient seas and composed of particles of those primary rocks. So, of course, any ... - the radioactive decay of uranium and similar elements- yields an age of billions of years. And it is this one method that has been enthusiastically promoted by Darwinists and uniformitarian geologists. So successful has this promotional campaign been that today almost everyone has been led to believe that radioactive dating is the only method of geochronometry worth considering, and that it is ...
76. Catastrophes: the Diluvial Evidence [SIS C&C Review $]
... . After Buffon's death, Cuvier quickly established a reputation as a gifted scientist, particularly in comparative anatomy. In 1812, he published the results of a detailed investigation of the geology of the Paris basin, carried out over many years with the mining engineer and mineralogist, Alexandre Brongniart (Figure 1). It seemed clear to Cuvier that there had been ... same period. Buckland announced in 1836 that he no longer believed in a single, universal flood. Five years earlier, Sedgwick had done the same in an address to the Geological Society of London. Admitting he and his colleagues had been led astray by their expectation of finding evidence of Noah's flood, Sedgwick said, 'There is, I think, one ... they continued to find the evidence strongly suggestive of the involvement of cataclysmic forces. However these had acted on more than one occasion, just as Cuvier had concluded. All the geologists were impressed by the large 'erratic' boulders found scattered over much of Europe and North America and by the loam and gravel deposits which lay as a mantle in northern regions. ...

They exhibit anomalous juxtapositions and reactions relative to theoretically ideal planetary behaviour and appear to be legacies of an earlier (but geologically recent) cosmic intrusion. The implications for standard uniformitarianism and catastrophism are discussed. It appears that most present terrestrial disturbances are aftermath effects of the last major cosmic visitation around 11 ...
78. Petrofabric Analysis: An Unreliable Archaeological Tool [Kronos $]
... uncommon for archaeology to borrow the techniques of other disciplines. "Indeed [archaeology would never have advanced this century in the way it has without interdisciplinary help, because as in geology and other historical sciences, each rare clue to the past needs the fullest exploitation and the most careful evaluation." (1) Thus the employment of the soil scientist, ... ) have, however, convinced few, if any, of MacKie's peers. This rejection by the archaeological community leads us to ask two pertinent questions concerning the use of a geological device in an archaeological context. Firstly, can petrofabric analysis demonstrate that any stone formation is the product of human intelligence and, secondly, did Bibby's analysis provide "the fullest ... the direction of glacier flow. In a number of cases, the long axes have been found to lie normal to the direction of the ice flow. As a precaution, geologists have found it necessary to determine the path of the glacier from other geological evidence(s). Concordances between conclusions obtained from striae and from petrofabric considerations demonstrate, with high ...

... From: Catastrophist Geology Year 2 No. 1 (June 1977) Home¦ Issue Contents The Perception of Continuity and Discontinuity Peter Chadwick Department of Psychology, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, U.K. Abstract When the products of rock deformation and development of rock structures are considered within spatial and temporal contexts, both are found to contain continuous and discontinuous aspects ... objects, processes and events in both a continuous and discontinuous way. Examples of this concept at the more automatic and at the strategic levels of human scientific investigation are drawn from geological perception of field and laboratory data, concept formation and broad geological theorising. Introduction Mention of "discontinuity" has rarely been well received throughout the history of science. Mathematical techniques ... . In such a scheme the observer and the rocks before him become one complex system, a man-rock system involving two-way reactions. Figure 1 shows representational drawings, by several different geologists and nongeologists, of the same scene. The inferences of apparent discontinuity of slope or displacement vary considerably within the two groups although there is little difference between the groups in this ...
