91. On the Disproportion between Geological Time and Historical Time Part One - Of Apes and Men [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review (1994) "Proceedings of the 1993 Cambridge Conference" Home | Issue Contents On the Disproportion between Geological Time and Historical Time Part One - Of Apes and Men Steven J. Robinson "Don, I hope this doesn't turn into a debate," he confided. "Our differences are really ... skull of modern appearance in gold-bearing strata at Bald Hill, California. After careful examination of both the skull and the site, J. D. Whitney, the State Geologist, confirmed that the find was genuine, even though it originated from Pliocene strata 130 feet below the surface. Its base was still imbedded in the original conglomerate and ...
92. The Catastrophic Role of Fluid Pressure and Electromagnetic Phenomena in the Mechanics of Overthrust Faulting [Journals] [Kronos]
... unit, although parts of it may have been secondarily fractured and faulted or overturned in folds. Such folds are termed inversions. Within an inversion, material of a younger geologic age is found below older material. The plane over which the slab of crust is displaced is called a shearplane with respect to soil and rock mechanics, and is ... . Imbrication is frequently observed in association with instantaneous displacement, and plastic deformation is frequently associated with creep. The overthrust phenomenon becomes more enigmatic with this observation. Traditionally, geologists tried to interpret the phenomenon of overthrust faulting in terms of gravity sliding. However, in many cases the angle of the shearplane is too low (nearly parallel to ...
93. New Scenarios for Solar System Evolution [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... universe evolution is for completeness discussed in both the version presently accepted by the majority of scientists (the big bang scenario) and in possible alternative versions. The session on geology discusses a number of questions associated with the crucial and difficult problem of accurately dating events in the far past but more importantly for the consequences on the dating of the ... Sapiens past, is discussed. Two particular topics that have always fascinated man, namely the deluge traditions and the antiquity of the great Giza Sphynx, are discussed from the geologist point of view. The session on anthropology reviews work done by genetists and linguists, that shows a tree of evolution of human presence in the world from a very ...
94. Velikovsky: Hero or Heretic? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... achievement. Jastrow, while acknowledging the weakness of many of the criticisms levelled at Worlds In Collision, highlights other problems in Velikovsky's scenario. In particular current interpretations of the geological and climatological record seem to provide little support for the idea of major catastrophes in the 15th and 8th centuries BC on the scale envisaged by Velikovsky. A detailed response ... From: SIS Review Vol VII Part A (1985) Home | Issue Contents Velikovsky: Hero or Heretic?ROBERT JASTROW Dr Robert Jastrow is a highly distinguished astronomer, geologist, and science writer. In 1961 he founded NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, of which he is the Director and is Adjunct Professor of Geophysics at Columbia University ...
95. The Cautious Revolutionary [Journals] [SIS Review]
... for sparkle, perception, controversy and common sense. Gould is on the faculty of Harvard University, and is primarily a palaeontologist and evolutionary biologist, although he also teaches geology and the history of science. For relaxation he sings baritone with the Boston Cecilia Society, and has a liking for Gilbert and Sullivan as well as for Bach. ... though modern textbooks may give the impression that one side had won the argument conclusively. A typical 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 ...
96. The Geological History of the Earth [Books]

Ever since the time of the British geologist James Hutton,2 it has been accepted that no agencies other than those observable nowadays, have in the past produced changes in the Earth's crust. `The present ...
97. The Sliding Continents. Ch.8 Poles Displaced (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... From "Earth in Upheaval" © 1955 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Sliding Continents The geological changes in the distribution of land and water being inadequate to explain the shifting of the poles, the problem is thrown back once more into the domain of astronomy. But before we ask, "What forces in the ... system could have displaced the terrestrial axis?" we shall discuss a theory that has for over three decades occupied the minds of geologists, climatologists, and evolutionists-the theory of the shifting continents. Instead of the poles shifting, according to Wegener's theory the continents drift and pass one after the other through the southern and northern polar regions. In ...
98. Catastrophes: the Diluvial Evidence [Journals] [SIS 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 ... action. That view eventually prevailed but initially Neptunism was the more popular theory. The most influential advocate of Neptunist views was Abraham Gottlob Werner (1749-1817), a German geologist. In Werner's theory, precipitation of dissolved material took place over long periods of time, first forming primitive rocks such as granite and then, as erosion of these ...

... which has got a very long title, and I won't give you the Latin title: Observations on the Organic Remains Contained in Caves, Fissures and Diluvial Gravel and other Geological Phenomena Attesting the Action of an Universal Deluge. In 1823, of course, no-one had heard of Ice Ages. The opinion at the time was that the explanation ... a gap, and then the two earlier humps. over a period of hundreds of thousands of years, and somebody noticed that this could fit in with the work the geologists have been studying, they had come to the conclusion that in fact there hadn't been just one Ice Age in the recent past, there had been three or four ...
100. Discussion Comments From the Floor [Journals] [Aeon]
... evidence of human remains- fossils and artifacts- lying mixed together in the same strata with animals theoretically long extinct but having the same state of bone mineralisation. The established geological and paleontological theories, following the principle of "superposition" (more recent levels will lie on top of more ancient levels), imply deposition of these remains in ... the dazzling astronomical concepts advanced by Velikovsky, to which the astronomer replied that, in fact, he had been more impressed with Dr. Velikovsky's archaeological theses. As a geologist I am more impressed with Strickling's discussions of astrophysics (Oort cloud, etc.) than with his geology. Unfortunately, "The Signature of Catastrophe" gets off ...
