71. Precursors of Quantavolution [Books] [de Grazia books]
... the Judaeo-Christian God had laid down this constraint; it was miserably self-imposed with full blame unto himself. Still he was grateful for the works tendered him by the creationists and, unlike V., felt no need to disavow them. V. cited with relish ancient predecessors, but when it came to citing modern scientific ones such as Georges Cuvier, Brasseur de Bourbourg, Donnelly, Hoerbiger, and Bellamy, his lines were niggardly, rather derogatory, and somewhat aside from the point of their predecession. When accused in a letter to the New York Times (May 7, 1950) of having taken wholesale from Hans Hoerbiger, an older contemporary, V. rightly answered with ...

72. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... to clear up some misunderstandings about 19th-century geology, particularly the idea that before LYELL shone the light of uniformitarianism into that science, it was dominated by the catastrophists who were "theological apologists who sought to compress the geologic record into the strictures of biblical chronology". Gould reminds us of the scientific catastrophists; precursors of Velikovsky, such as CUVIER, AGASSIZ, SEDGWICK and MURCHISON, none of whom resembled the caricatured fundamentalist "straw man" that Lyell set up to demolish and replace with "scientific" uniformitarianism. According to Gould' "the catastrophists were much more empirically minded than Lyell". It is unfortunate then that Gould begins his essay on the greatest modern catastrophist - ...

73. Quantavolutions [Books] [de Grazia books]
... or additional, heroes of science, too: the brave Spanish priests who rescued from certain destruction the iconography and writings of the original inhabitants of the Americas; astronomers like William Whiston who perceived an exoterrestrial cause for the Noachian deluge; anthropologists like Nicholas-Antoine Boulanger who recognized the symptoms of catastrophic fear in the history of religion; paleontologists such as Cuvier who discovered the layerings of catastrophe; anthropological-biological explorers like Humboldt who accorded respect to aboriginal accounts. Charles Lyell and his supporters thereupon might have had less success in dominating natural history- even allowing that they were riding on the crest of English world power, political power always being consciously or unconsciously imperialistic in the dissemination of ideas. Admittedly ...

74. The Cautious Revolutionary [Journals] [SIS Review]
... example is the catastrophism - uniformitarianism debate. In Gould's opinion, "Most geologists would tell you that their science represents the total triumph of Lyell's uniformity over unscientific catastrophism. Lyell's brief won the victory for his name, but modern geology is really an even mixture of two scientific schools - Lyell's original, rigid uniformitarianism and the scientific catastrophism of Cuvier and Agassiz." [1 ] The essays were introduced to a wider readership in 1978 when thirty-three were published in hardback under the title Ever Since Darwin. A paperback edition appeared two years later and, at about the same time, the next collection was published as The Panda's Thumb. The year 1983 saw the appearance of The ...

... , Berger, and most of the other founders of geology studied. In the pursuit of Woodwardian geology, a number of anomalies occurred- in particular, a lack of correlation between new and old world strata as well as overlays of basalt and granite in what were supposed to be secondary deposits. As a result, Leonard von Buch and Georges Cuvier modified the early diluvial theory into a more general catastrophic theory of the earth in which the earth was seen as not having suffered one catastrophe, but numerous catastrophes, of which the Deluge was but the most recent example. To deny catastrophism altogether was to deny the truth of the Bible, and hence the theological implications of early geology ...

A psychological situation provoked the change in the attitude of the scholarly world with the beginning of the Victorian age. The founders of the sciences of geology- Buckland, Sidgwick, and Murchinson (who gave the classification of formations used today); of vertebrate paleontology- Cuvier; and of ichthyology- Louis Agassiz- never doubted that what they observed was the result of repeated cataclysms in which the entire globe partook. Actually, Charles Darwin, observing the destruction of fauna in South America, was convinced that nothing less than the shaking of the entire frame of the Earth could account for what he saw. But the ...
