Some of the short-term phenomena were appreciated by mankind long ago and were given emphasis by early geologists, but the long-term disruptive processes which escape direct observation can play an equal, if not greater, role in changing the face of the Earth. Denudation rates The ...

... and the site of the ruins of Tiahuanacu could support the necessary population. If the megalithic builders were living under these conditions, the problem is solved. If this is geologically impossible, the mystery remains unexplained."3 Several years ago another authority, A. Posnansky, wrote in similar vein: "At the present time, the ... Tiahuanacu, and still higher, up to 18 400 feet above sea level, or to the present line of eternal snow on Illimani. The conservative view among evolutionists and geologists is that mountain making is a slow process, observable in minute changes, and that because it is a continuous process there never could have been spontaneous up-liftings on a ...

... as well as ruined careers and has slashed across the entire spectrum of sciences, although arguments tend to become the most heated in the fields of astronomy, biology, and geology. It is in these areas that the war of ideas is now being waged. The past few years especially have seen startling evidence presented which indicates that the scientific ... over catastrophism was not very scientific. Geology as a science was in its infancy in the 19th century. In their attempt to find acceptance in the scientific community, most geologists sought to separate themselves from Bible literalists who taught that the world was created in six days. They tried at all costs to avoid the rare and mysterious; thus ...

Comyns Beaumont CD Home | Contents Part Three: Volcanic Powers And Limitations VI - The Key to Mountain Ranges THE earth's axis has shifted on many occasions in past days as geology demonstrates, and that it has so done means that the Poles are not fixed and immovable points. They vary in fact continually to a slight extent at the present ... should be able to produce evidence to this effect. A careful scrutiny of the world's mountain ranges offers a key in this respect which as yet has scarcely been used by geologists. In the propositions I am here producing it is clearly understood, of course, that the whole theory is of lands laid down from celestial contact and not the ...

... a forthcoming book by Velikovsky titled The Test of Time. SEDIMENTS Poseidon, lord of the Ocean, was the first to come to my defense. A basic assumption of geology for the past century has been that, though the sea may encroach on land by covering coastal areas with shallow water, the continents and the oceans are primeval; ... . The book, Worlds in Collision, though already three years in the hands of Macmillan, was not yet off the press when Maurice Ewing, the Columbia University marine geologist, published an account of an expedition to the Atlantic Ocean and the mid-Atlantic ridge. This ridge runs north-south the entire length of the ocean. More than one surprise ...

In some of his earlier papers on pleochroic halos, Joly argued that halos of varying sizes indicated that decay rates for uranium had not been constant throughout geological time. But later he reversed himself and insisted that pleochroic halos actually proved what everyone else had always assumed - that radioactive decay rates have always been constant.( ... now of the Chemistry Division of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, found himself wondering: "Can the earth's age be measured by radioactive dating of its rocks, as most geologists and geochemists believe?

Because of the French part of the Mesozoic rift valley and the western Alps overlapping and becoming dovetailed, some geologists regard the latter as having been already formed before the Tertiary Age.
