... unanswered: about the origins of the planets, of comets, of life, of the ubiquitous legend of the Flood; about the causes of mountain building .111(1 of the Ice Ages, for example. The conflict is stressed between modern theories of gradual evolution (Lyell, Danwit) and the earlier one of catastrophic change (Cuvier). Velikovsky shows that the concept of ages brought to an end by violent natural changes can be found in the traditions of peoples the world over, in Armenia, China, Etruria, Greece, Iceland, India, Mexico, Persia, Polynesia, and Tibet, among others. Velikovsky's main argument begins with the biblical story that ...
83. Catastrophic Theory of Mountain Uplifts (A Crustal Deformation Theory) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... outside flyby," the Final Flyby. That final event was in the year 701 B.C ., after which Mars began to assume its modern orbit, a result of the "slingshot effect" of that outside flyby. We reject the idea of uniformity in astronomy as well as in geology. The great pioneers of geology like Cuvier, Werner, Agassiz, were catastrophists. They were on the right track. The gradualists (uniformitarians) are in error. However, the gradualists have come, via Hutton and Lyell, to prevail by political processes, and have succeeded in "selling" the dogma of gradualism for Earth history to scientists as if it were scientific ...
84. Introduction (In the Beginning: God) [Books]
... while the literary' and the vision' theories could hardly be called so. The main objections marshalled against the Restitution Theory were a period of universal chaos and ruin which some of the plants, animals, and men survived was deemed impossible as no causer of such a world-wide cataclysm could apparently be shown up in geology the catastrophistic world-picture of Cuvierism had been supplanted by the quietistic world-picture of Lyellism. Biologists objected to the statement that there was life before the creation' of the sun, etc. We shall see in the following pages that critics of the Book of Genesis were ill guided when they rejected the restitution theory because it required a catastrophic basis. The kotow to Lyellistic ...
85. How the Gods Fly [Books] [de Grazia books]
... . New levels of surface crust are developed on all of the bodies, new "scar tissue," new stratigraphy. The effects upon the biosphere are grave. They have been described time and time again by the ancient observers, by early students of the Deluge such as Whiston, Newton, and Boulanger, by modern catastrophists such as Cuvier, Donnelly and Beaumont, by contemporaries such as Patton and by Kelly and Dachille [9 ], Lane , Schaeffer, and, in especially systematic form, by Velikovsky. There emerge, in the perspective of the human race, disasters without number. The gaseous composition of the atmosphere changes (a noticeable thinning and ...

87. The Origin and Evolution of the Comets and Other Small Bodies in the Solar System [Journals] [Kronos]
... History of the Solar System"- held at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. 1) There is no basis for assuming that terrestrial volcanism could eject matter from Earth. This has never been observed. This remark is the consequence of unfamiliarity with the history of volcanic phenomena on Earth - and with the conclusions of Lagrange, Humboldt, Cuvier, Pavlov, and other investigators. It reflects the mistaken notions of many contemporary geologists who consider volcanism only in terms of magmatic activity on Earth. Our analysis of the phenomena of powerful, explosive eruptions proved the expulsion of matter into interplanetary space even in the present period of relative tranquility on Earth (See Physical Journal, Kiev University ...
88. Psychoceramics [Journals] [Aeon]
... The French biologist, Jean Baptiste de Lamarck, was the first to devote an entire book to evolution as the "march of nature" in his Philosophie Zologique (1809), (26) but through mistranslations and bad press his ideas on adaptive change were often seriously distorted, and were even maligned by his compatriot, the naturalist Georges Cuvier. The social structure, particularly in England, was inextricably tied in with the industrial revolution, and one which had given the British enormous economic power and prestige. However, the British Empire had just endured and lost a costly revolution with the American colonies, and was fearful of similar social changes on its home ground, so philosophical ...
89. Quantalism And Prehistory [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... however Earth and its inhabitants were buffeted by fire and flood, tremor and tempest. Temperature became variable and light intermittent. Men began to prey on animals and on one another. ANIMAL SYMBOLISM AND SCIENTIFIC PARADIGMS Till the nineteenth century, the mythic picture of prehistory and the scientific picture were at least minimally compatible. After the death of George Cuvier, however, earth scientists increasingly adopted the paradigm that William Whewell christened uniformitarianism (and I nickname uniformism), which characterized all major planetary changes as gradual in pace and all of the processes involved in them a comparable to the marginal erosion and sedimentation observable today. Despite the split between man and beast mentioned earlier, both prehistoric and ...
90. Volcanism [Books] [de Grazia books]
... . Flying high over southern Italy, one may luckily see Vesuvius, Stromboli, and Etna all smoking at the same moment. Arriving in sight of the famous seven hills of Rome, there is a grandeur of culture, not nature. Yet Breislak in 1801 was arguing that the seven hills were debris amidst a large volcanic caldera, and Cuvier for one approved the idea. When the oldest hominids, human in some ways, walked the Earth at Afar (E . Africa), some ten nearby volcanos were active. A great many dormant volcanos exist and an enormous number of extinct volcanos. If the belts of inactive fissures and the unnumbered thousands of seamounts are added, ...
