... legendary elements of "earth, air, fire and water." Catastrophic action and effects were manifested over the whole globe. Their intensity was such that the potential destructive force of deviations in the motions of celestial bodies must be introduced into the equation. Legends (oral history, amnesiac fragments, and sublimated tales) assert abundantly the priority of heavenly forces as destroyers of the world on successive occasions. The locations of large meteoritic explosions are discovered in increasing numbers. Increasingly, geologists such as Ager slip from the grasp of earth-bound uniformitarianism, and astrophysicists such as John A. Simpson conceive of their realm as explosive and disorderly. It can be asserted and defended that in the past fourteen thousand years, a disorder befell the solar system that terrorized and transmutated the sensible biosphere, changed the atmosphere, cleaved and ravaged the crust of the earth, altered drastically the sky and surface waters and destroyed or severely damaged every civilization up to the seventh century before the present era. During these fourteen thousand years, it can be argued, human groups spent one-third of ...

... 1972), p.55. 5. (p.6, #3). In addition to botany Lamarck had dabbled in many other sciences, including geology, meteorology, chemistry and physics. Far from distracting Lamarck, these forays into other sciences provided him with several of his central insights into the nature of living forms. Lamarck's career in botany, for example, led him to emphasize the role of the environment as a modifying influence on the forms of animals. Lamarck's researches into geology, similarly, made him a strong believer in uniformitarianism, and it was as a direct result of his attempt to refute catastrophism and the possibility of widespread extinction-- according to Burkhardt-- that Lamarck was initially led to question the mutability of species. See R. Burkhardt, The Spirit of System: Lamarck and Evolutionary Biology, (Cambridge, 1977), pp.130-137. Lamarck's researches into meteorology, where he had discovered that the Moon exerted some sort of influence upon the atmosphere of the Earth-- and consequently upon the fluids of living things, comparable to its ...

234. A Comprehensive Theory on Aging, Gigantism and Longevity [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... could scarcely have provided fruitful soil for the development of science, Historically, many societies have paid a very stiff price for letting attitudes become unconsciously-- or subconsciously-- molded or predetermined. It is unimportant whether the instrument of imposed rigidity is religious (as in the examples above) or establishment science itself Today too, as before, a fixed climate of thought prevents the introduction of realistic ideas despite the masses of new or freshly rethought supporting evidence. Present-day teaching on earth history consequently is virtually monopolized by 19th century Lyellian uniformitarianism and Darwinian evolution; both are questionable dogma. In this work the authors explore an almost untraveled road, a road admittedly unmapped, a road fraught with difficulties as well as with much promise. In this task, therefore, they petition the reader to respond to their heterodox trio of theses with careful consideration to the fundamental points that are made, rather than to assume an instinctive and perhaps costly negativism. For if these heterodox theses are valid, then our conclusion regarding aging, gigantism and longevity is of major import. ...

Chaim Herzog and Mordecai Gichon, Battles of the Bible, New York: Random House, 1978, 28. Although these military men are psychologically insightful, the several pages that they consign to the Exodus and the Battle of Jericho suffer from "the four sins of modern biblicim": confused chronology; reductionism; primitivism; and uniformitarianism. 68. I think that Herzog and Gichon perceive correctly that the present word "harlot" was originally a "victualler" or "hostess of an inn", 27. 69. I SISR 3 (1976), 2-7 and II SISR (1977) 16, 19. 70.

... in this succinct aphorism based on his close involvement with many of the pioneering researchers in the new space age. The continual expressions of surprise at the discoveries made by those scientists, as results poured in from spacecraft, are symptomatic of some fundamental errors in theoretical astronomy. Predictions of what would be found as each new object was observed were consistently wrong. Each new space-probe was sent into space with the benediction that it would help clarify the origins of the Solar System. Each time the mysteries increased. Astronomy has been blighted by uniformitarianism in the same way as the other natural sciences, geology and biology. Put simply, that is, the only forces which are allowed to act in the past are those we see in action today. The geologists and biologists then required vast spans of time to produce the complex world we observe. The astronomers were happy to oblige. So the features we witness on planetary surfaces were said to be the result of infrequent impacts and slow evolution over billions of years. Of course, impacts are catastrophic. But they have ...

... of causation, and of power of choice- but in fact do not know what they are seeking, what is available, or what are solutions. That their compensation, whether in esteem, position, or money, is related to performance is only an illusion. What is accepted and what is rejected are therefore only a product of chance encounters of purpose and provision. Under these circumstances, scientists follow the laws of nonrational collective behaviour. They think in stereotypes (e. g. the eternal harmony of the spheres, uniformitarianism, catastrophism). They circulate ideas via popularization and texts [16. Thus have Newton, Galileo, Darwin, Freud and Einstein been conveyed. Scientists are at the mercy of popularizers. Their own minds are formed by simplistic ideas, try as they will to evade their grip. A new theory spreads as a rumour, simplified, overly precise, and success comes as a surprise. No two persons understand its extended meanings quite alike. It is resistant to rational counter-argument. And it persists until it is stale and ...
