231. For the Record. . . [Journals] [Kronos]
... take place. Therefore we are led to the belief that evolution is a process initiated in catastrophes. Numerous catastrophes or bursts of effective radiation must have taken place in the geological past in order to change so radically the living forms on earth, as the record of fossils embedded in lava and sediment bears witness [Cf. W in C ... claimed that "although it is well established that the earth's crust has shifted and that climates have changed, these changes almost certainly were more gradual than Hapgood suggests. Most geologists, following the uniformitarian' point of view expounded in the 18th century by James Hutton and in the 19th by Charles Lyell, are satisfied that observable natural processes are ...
... .), on the north and west by heights which attain at Gulvain to 3,224 ft., and here, with the valley of the Spean, are geological remains of a past age when, through some extraordinary agency, the pent-up waters attained immense high levels as proved by the "sea-beaches" in Glen Gloy and Glen ... Western Highlands of Scotland, where cumulative support exists in various directions, and where we strike the most igneous region of the British Isles, perhaps in the world, as geologists admit. They attribute it to some phenomenal occurrence in the Tertiary Age. I propose that it happened c. 1322 BC. Off the shores of Argyllshire stands the ...
233. Electric Stars in a Gravity-Less Electrified Cosmos [Journals] [SIS Review]
... notion existed that some nuclear process was the source of energy liberated deep within the body of stars. Some long-lived process was necessarily the generator within the Sun, because the geological requirements forbade a short-lived Sun. The Sun had to have radiated constantly over hundreds of millions of years, if not for thousands of millions of years, to allow ... , some to fly off as birds and others to crawl out on to the emerging land to become reptiles, and eventually for man to result. Thus it was the geologists and the biologists who told the astronomers that the Sun had to be very old. Old was fine, because gravitation is a very weak force which can only accomplish ...
234. The Empire Strikes Back [Books] [de Grazia books]
... position: what qualification, one might ask, does Bauer have for writing a book of sociology, history, ethnology, and political analysis, not to mention meteorology, geology, astronomy, etc.? Does he regard himself as a greater polymath than any of us? Then again, he contradicts my analysis of Margolis and a group ... . Cantril was a distinguished psychologist and expert on systematic opinion analysis; etc. Nor does he stress that Harry Hess, who is sometimes regarded as having been the leading geologist of the past generation, was a thoroughly sympathetic friend of Velikovsky. Hess and I talked on two or three occasions of Velikovsky, and Hess was as eager as ...
235. The Early Years: Part Two [Journals] [Aeon]
... too gradual to suit his own taste, just as it had been too catastrophic for uniformitarian geologists. (9 ) Ironically, in the 1960s Velikovsky's dramatic vision of sudden geological change may have served as a partial stimulus for his friend, Harry H. Hess, to revive and modify the Wegenerian scenario by suggesting plate tectonics (not Velikovsky's ... apart over time, forming the present geographic distribution. Wegener's ideas of "catastro-phism in slow motion" enjoyed great favor for a time, but from the mid-1920s more conventional geologists were able to demonstrate quantitatively that the dynamic forces that Wegener proposed were too weak to produce the effects he hypothesized, and the theory went into a sharp decline as ...

Lake Bosumtwi (diameter 8 kms) in Ghana is by geologists generally interpreted as the impact scar of an extraterrestrial body, and the Ivory Coast tektite field has been correlated with it on chemical and geochronological grounds. The Dogons, ...
237. The Cause Of The Ice Ages. Ch.8 Poles Displaced (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... theory of evolution built upon it. The other fundamental teaching originating in the nineteenth century-the theory of ice ages has been loaded more and more heavily with the responsibility for the geological facts revealed; however, the cause of the ice ages remained a much-discussed and never agreed-upon subject. The origin of the glacial periods was sought "on the earth ... could come from. "Scores of methods of accounting for ice ages have been proposed, and probably no other geological problem has been so earnestly discussed, not only by geologists but by meteorologists and biologists; and yet no theory is generally accepted."3 A true theory of the origin of ice ages, whether resorting to astronomical, ...

... pollens of plants, a geochronological scale of climatic changes can be formulated even for areas where no archaeologically datable objects are found. There are a few other ways of calculating geological time: by measuring the amount of sediment on the bottom of the ocean; by computing the amount of salt in the oceans and comparing it with the annual influx ... pp. 189-9o; C.

... a geophysicist, though the subtlety of distinction is perhaps a little lost on many of us. He spoke to us about revolutions in the Earth sciences, outlining events in geology during the 70s which eventually overturned old views and led to a completely new world view, despite the powerful resistance of the establishment. Our speaker suggested that a look ... second speaker, John Milsom, who had unfortunately been unable to let us know that he could speak in time for us to inform members. John was introduced as a geologist but hastened to inform us that he is a geophysicist, though the subtlety of distinction is perhaps a little lost on many of us. He spoke to us about ...
240. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Aylesbury. Unfortunately, since the pumps have been switched off, the water table has risen – which is fine for ducks and geese but not for anyone interested in the geology of the pit. Pitstone lies below the Chiltern escarpment – which is formed of chalk laid down mainly at the end of the Cretaceous. The Vale of Aylesbury is ... He also said the latter had been found at Pitstone quarry near Tring. Further, in an article in The Proceedings of the Bergamo Conference 1999, Kloosterman wrote that British geologists did not recognise a link between the layer at Pitstone and the Late Pleistocene observed layer found elsewhere – and had interpreted it as a purely local and isolated phenomenon. ...
