161. The Perception of Continuity and Discontinuity [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... From: Catastrophist Geology Year 2 No. 1 (June 1977) Home | Issue Contents The Perception of Continuity and Discontinuity Peter Chadwick Department of Psychology, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, U.K . Abstract When the products of rock deformation and development of rock structures are considered within spatial and temporal contexts, both are found to ... In such a scheme the observer and the rocks before him become one complex system, a man-rock system involving two-way reactions. Figure 1 shows representational drawings, by several different geologists and nongeologists, of the same scene. The inferences of apparent discontinuity of slope or displacement vary considerably within the two groups although there is little difference between the groups ...
162. Drayson's hypothesis: the Earth's tilt cycle [Journals] [SIS Review]
... works include three books on geography, the most recent of which is Earth Surface Systems (Springer-Verlag, Heidelberg, 1985): a further two books which discuss catastrophism in geology are in press, and a third, Climate and Earth History (Springer-Verlag), is in preparation. In an appendix to his book Pole Shift [1 ] ... , and in regarding the cause of the last glacial epoch as a secret still unknown."  Not all reaction to Drayson's hypothesis was so hostile. The geologist Thomas Belt, for instance, although not agreeing fully with all aspects of Drayson's hypothesis, discussed it at some length . In 1874, Drayson published ...
163. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... "sociobiology" from crime to racism. Gould does not shun controversy, but throughout he remains the spokesman and champion of Darwinism in all aspects of biology, palaeontology and geology. His essays provide a valuable insight for the non-specialist into the workings of the modern Darwinist mind and are generally lucid and instructive and always valuable - whether one agrees ... of such phenomena as faunal extinctions, tektite falls, volcanic maxima, climatic changes, glacial retreats and advances, sea-level changes and geomagnetic reversals. Gould, like every good geologist, should be well acquainted with the scores of papers on these correlations in Nature and other journals. Gould's next criticism, "the exclusive use of outdated sources" ...

... and lead) have been reputed to fall. Such events are unknown to modern experience but are indicated by ancient legends from many places , and by various geological and biological phenomena . We cannot ignore the Biblical sources that speak of "fire and brimstone (sulphur)" such as that which wiped out " ... 5 to 1 1/5 inches thick, which, extends through the whole hill at a depth of from 28 to 29 1/2 feet." Several visiting geologists and a construction engineer gave this opinion, and all concluded that large deposits of these existed at the time of the city's destruction. Schliemann continues: "That Troy ...

... prevalence of higher temperatures in northern circumpolar regions, would be found in the assumption that the Earth's axis of rotation has not always had the same position as a result of geological processes."6 Howorth cites Sarytchef on the ability of mammoths to survive in Siberia: "I am rather inclined to attribute the phenomenon to some extraordinary change in ... limestone structure when you have rain beating down on it for thousands of years.... It's clearly rain precipitation that produced the features'."34 One establishment geologist, attempting to save the historical chronology claimed, contrary to Schoch, that the gullying erosion of the Sphinx was caused not by rainfall, but by ancient, trapped ...

... advanced by Hutton (1795) and Lamarck (1800), was elevated to its present position as a scientific law by Charles Lyell, a young attorney whose interest in geology was to make him the most influential person in that field, and by Lyell's disciple and friend, Charles Darwin. Darwin built his theory of evolution on Lyell's principle ... genera, are different. These violations of continuity are so common as to constitute in most regions the rule rather than the exception, and they have been considered by many geologists as conclusive in favour of sudden revolutions in the inanimate and animate world."2 Thus he acknowledged that the surface of the globe has the appearance of having been ...

... ", Richard A. Kerr tells of the developments at a recent meeting on the relationship between the Milankovitch ice ages theory and climate. It is claimed that "the geological evidence is stronger than ever", but is it? Scientists are seemingly so thoroughly convinced of the model based upon orbital changes (Milankovitch model) to explain climate ... against: the uniformitarian programmed computer versus the unfunded amateur. A New Model for Crustal Deformation source: Open Earth No. 17, 1982-B, pp. 30-2 Not all geologists are unquestioning followers of the current dogma of plate tectonics. Peter M. James, an Australian engineering geologist, points out the weakness of a theory which relies on ...

... some seventeen times as great as would be calculated from present tidal forces...It is difficult to believe that the interior of the Moon can support such stresses for geological periods of time. (20) What Urey means is that the lunar bulge cannot be many millions of years old, otherwise the bulge would be removed by isostatic ... propose a solar system disturbance similar to that proposed by Velikovsky, I pose that this is precisely the concept offered by both a distinguished British astronomer and an equally distinguished American geologist. As was described, the Moon endured great recent catastrophes and was so violently affected by this interaction its crust was cracked and broken smoothly, with depth. Based ...
170. The Impact of Impact! Notes on the implications and the reception of "IMPACT! The Threat of Comets and Asteroids" by Gerrit Verschuur [Journals] [SIS Review]
... changes in the understanding and perception of our cosmic environment, initially triggered by the K/T boundary controversy in the early 1980s, appear to have slowly shifted from the geological to the historical time frame. Rather than limiting the debate to the giant million-year events, the focus of many researchers has switched to the smaller but more frequent punctuations ... mass extinctions in geological time), is the growing interest in and risk assessment of the cosmic threat to civilisation. Moreover, a number of archaeologists, climatologists and planetary geologists have begun to search for possible impact events during the mankind's historical and prehistoric periods. This new recognition of historical catastrophism is the result not only of SL9 crashing on ...
