121. The Problem Of The Extinction [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... will produce." Pierre Simon Laplace System of the World, (1793) "The British glacial geologist J. K. Charlesworth, has written: `Perhaps no geological period has so divergent views as has the Pleistocene. Indeed, Quaternary geologists have long enjoyed the unenviable reputation of being among the most disputatious'." Gwen Schultz ... industry reversed; such are the disasters which a shock of a comet will produce." Pierre Simon Laplace System of the World, (1793) "The British glacial geologist J. K. Charlesworth, has written: `Perhaps no geological period has so divergent views as has the Pleistocene. Indeed, Quaternary geologists have long enjoyed the ...
122. Electricity [Books] [de Grazia books]
... St. Elmo's fire, one of the oldest and most fascinating phenomena continuously reported. In fact, there exists no treatise on the full range of electrical behaviors related to geology. This universal presence of electricity in geological events does not excite systematic attention, no more than it has in astronomical events up to the present. If one seeks ... chemical bonding and radioactivity. Historically, earth scientists have led the parade of debunkers when meteoroids were reported to fall or when lightning took unusual forms. Of course, when geologists stood upon mountain tops and St. Elmo's fire flowed from their beards and hammers, they could not well deny this "god's fire" of the ancients [1 ...
... aqueous and mineral vapor, are formed about the planet's equator. Such a system of rings once surrounded the earth, and by their successive collapse produced great changes during the geologic period. Their remnants, lingering in the skies, even to the time of Christ, became the source of all ancient mythologies. There can be no valid objection ... , and finally bring down the cold of the heavens when they fall and thus glaciate a world. In the last forty years I have had ample opportunity, as a geologist in various fields, abundantly to sustain or refute these claims. In the first place, I will as briefly as possible present a few facts from the geologic record ...
124. Opening the Floodgates [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... The earth, in short, has always worked (and looked) just about as it does now. ' " Hallam expressed similar sentiments to those of Gould in Great Geological Controversies (Oxford University Press, 1983). "Uniformitarianism .. ., as outlined by Lyell, is both a system and a method. The English term ... about proper scientific procedure, and a group of substantive beliefs about how the world really works. The methodological principles were universally acclaimed by scientists, and embraced warmly by all geologists; the substantive claims were controversial and, in some cases, accepted by few other geologists. Lyell then pulled a fast one - perhaps the neatest trick of rhetoric ...
125. Mammoth Update: A Reply to Ellenberger (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... science of taphonomy - the study of all the processes that are gone through from the moment that an animal starts to die up until its remains are finally embedded in a geological stratum.(20) This approach has demonstrated amply that, where remains are sufficiently well preserved for cause of death to be established, mammoth mortality was not the ... and being eaten by scavengers" fails to meet the observed facts. The contrary view, that the cadavers froze slowly, does not stem solely from the paper by the geologist Farrand (anathema to Ellenberger), for further contributions have been made by distinguished palaeontologists and biochemists and these prove that each beast was assaulted from both within and without ...
126. Part III: The Legends [Ragnarok] [Books]
... "American Naturalist," 1873, says: "The discoveries that are constantly being made in this country are proving that man existed on this continent as far back in geological time as on the European Continent; and it even seems that America, really the Old World, geologically, will soon prove to be the birthplace of the earliest ... bone-cuttings have been made, as at Thenay, department of Marne-et-Loire, and Billy, department of Allier, France. Professor J. D. Whitney, the eminent State geologist of California, reports similar discoveries there also. So, then, we may believe that before the last great upheaval of the Alps and Pyrenees, and while the ...
127. The Theory Of Continental Drift [Books]
... small angular changes in the position of this axis. Such small changes, although they can perceptibly affect climatic conditions, are adequate to explain the drastic climatic changes observed in geological times. In this chapter, we will show that a slip' of the Earth's crust under meteoritic impact was possibly one of the most important factors. Before studying ... the right atmosphere and help them to arrive smoothly at the important conclusions which will be drawn. I The Theory Of Continental Drift As long ago as 1859, the French geologist Snider-Pelligrini1 suggested, after studying analogies between the floras faunas of the different continents, that the latter must have formed, in remote times, a single block united by ...
128. Tektites, Wildfires and the Extinction of the Dinosaurs [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the impact of an asteroid or comet, or from volcanic action. Which was it? Shocked quartz grains found by Bruce Bohor and colleagues of the U.S . Geological Survey seemed almost conclusive evidence of an impact at this time. Even staunch opponents of the impact hypothesis as Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, geologists Charles Officer and Charles ... admitted that the characteristics of these crystals were different from those known to have resulted from internal pressures during volcanic activity[1 ]. However, they then went on to argue that there was insufficient evidence to conclude that the crystals could not in any circumstances have been caused by internal overpressures. In their view, the evidence as a whole ...
129. The Great Comet Venus [Journals] [Aeon]
... estimated, causing one scientist to declare that "the entire planet is one big volcano!" . But what was the source of the massive planetary stresses involved? In geological terms, much of the lava flow is incredibly recent, covering vast portions of the surface, and throwing normal dating systems into chaos. Astronomers have traditionally guessed at ... On the geological time scale, for all we know, whole portions of the surface were re-sculpted only yesterday. The mystery was duly noted by Science magazine. The planetary geologists who are studying the radar images streaming back from Magellan find that they have an enigma on their hands. When they read the geologic clock that tells them how old ...

Throwing Water on our Earth Path of the North Pole after the Capture of Luna Sketch Map of the North Sea in the Post-Tertiary Asatellitic Age PREFACE As I am neither a geologist nor a geophysicist it is legitimate to ask what business had I to trespass into an alien preserve, and to write a life history of our Earth?
