... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1991 No 2 (Jan 1992) Home¦ Issue Contents HORIZONS Long Term Violation of Uniformitarianism Demonstrated by Fossil Discoveries in Polar Regions (An address to be read in absentia for the November 1991 Haliburton seminar) Notwithstanding his documented shortcomings, Immanuel Velikovsky, more than any other individual, was the catalyst for the revival of catastrophist thought in the space and earth sciences since World War Two. The Alvarez paper of 1980 sparked the productive phase of modern catastrophism, with ordinary scientists publishing findings that supported a hypothesized catastrophe of meteoric or cometary collision at the K-T boundary. Over 80 scientific reports support this disruptive event of 65 million years ago. Clube and Napier's Cosmic Serpent and Cosmic Winter put the K-T disaster into a broad astronomical perspective and support Velikovsky's fundamental idea of global catastrophe in historical times when people were living in cities. I propose to show that uniformitarianism has been violated for geologically immense periods of time within the last 100 million years. Impact occurrences, whether by meteorites or comets, are not the only or even ...

... and more useful from. It is a mistake to treat each reformulation as more than a useful temporary rendition. Some natural laws can be made to appear ridiculously simple and indeed they may be such. A body resists changes in its motions. "Nothing changes unless acted upon." Well, why should it? That's the law of inertia. But the opposite of course is true-- nothing becomes what it is without having been something else. Etc. Deg's Journal, October 27, 1972 The revolutionary zeal to refute uniformitarianism and evolution has not considered fully their merits. The doctrine, that solar system has been stable for millions of years, and that biological evolution and geological changes have occurred almost entirely through small incremental changes over billions of years, seems weak enough, in the light of our reassessment of catastrophic evidences in every area. The recency of catastrophe is plain. We have had to explain why uniformitarianism triumphed but have done so only cursorily; one does not pause to strip elaborate armor off the fallen foes until the battle is won ...

... of mud and fossilized trees on the islands of the Arctic Ocean. [7 I find that neither Jueneman's nor Cardona's explanation, both of whom have supplied us with very speculative scenarios, is satisfactory. It is no wonder that, while orthodox theories concerning the development of Earth in historic times are just as speculative, confusion rules the day. Geologists and the dependent sciences that have been developed on the basis provided by geologists have been set on a false path. The decision taken by Charles Lyell to pursue the path leading to uniformitarianism was a political one, taken in opposition to the short term of the Mosaic chronology. Any effort to interpret the movement of Earth's crust in terms of catastrophic events was effectively stifled by the Geological society's refusal to publish anything even hinting at a catastrophic or Biblical base. What follows is based on macrogeomorphology and explains how physical forces, identified by the forms created in Earth's crust, have shaped our globe. With the movement of the continents, revealed by following the predictable motion of released energy as shown by the appropriate morphology ...

... Ubu projex. Eric Drew Feldman (Captain Beefheart, Snakefinger) who appeared on Stereo Review's Record of The Year for 1992, Worlds In Collision, produced by Gil Norton (The Pixies). The oldest of 3 children, David Lynn Thomas, was born in 1953 in Miami, Florida. He recorded 12 Pere Ubu albums, and 8 solo albums. In 1987 he recorded Blame the Messenger, featuring the song The Velikovsky 2-Step. On the album, this song was subtitled "The Wooden Birds Laugh at the Theory of Uniformitarianism.". It was used some years ago as the soundtrack for the trailer credits on a one-off half hour Rowan Atkinson comedy program.. Says Thomas: "If all disciplines relate to all other disciplines then everything can serve as a metaphor for the human experience. I've written several songs using a science or Fortean metaphor and I've long held a grudge against mainstream science for its treatment of the dinosaur. Hence the Velikovsky 2-Step. If you're going to hold grudges choose big ones that span thousands of years." Blame ...

... remains that the anomalistic, not the predictive, event is the central subject of science-fiction. Isaac Asimov's Foundation trilogy is a case in point. There is assuredly nothing very exciting about three novels that concern themselves with the more-or-less gradual decay of an interstellar Empire and the efforts of a group of historians-mathematicians-psycholo ists, under the leadership of Hari Seldon, to fine-tune the collapse in order to minimize its effects and duration. Once you have established the foregoing, where do you go from there? Well, where Asimov, the champion of uniformitarianism in science, goes is toward anomalies. A significant section of the Foundation trilogy, for instance, reveals that Hari Seldon's plan is posited on the probability of anomalies occurring, a discovery that causes great consternation among his followers. In fact, the greatest anomaly is a character called "the Mule", a mutation who, Alexander-like, conquers the known universe, and whose appearance on the historical scene has not even been predicted by Hari Seldon himself. Ironic, isn't it, that the current enemy of catastrophism in the ...

... of Being. It was a very secure world.) Since marine fossils of many different sizes and species were found in many different layers above the sea level, Leonardo knew that natural history had not been eternally fixed in space and time. Searching for a scientific (empirico-rational) explanation, he rejected all religious interpretations of creation and destruction. To account for the marine objects at the tops of hills and high mountains far removed from the sea, his mind leaped ahead of contemporary thought to embrace conceptions of both geological catastrophism and uniformitarianism as well as anticipating the theory of biological evolution (ideas that are still hard for some thinkers to accept even today). In the layers of mountain stone, Leonardo da Vinci studied the fossilised evidence: various marine shells, sea snails, oysters, corals, scallops, cockles, crabs, cuttlefish, traces of worms, and the bones and teeth of fishes. To explain rationally the geopaleontological nature of things, he took time and change seriously. Holding to the plasticity of the Earth, Leonardo held that there had ...
