241. William H. Stiebing, Jr., and Immanuel Velikovsky [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... once every 100 million years.... "It is embarrassing to invoke such a wildly unlikely event as a chance encounter between the entry probe and a rare, geologically confirmed, methane plume, but so far we have eliminated all other plausible explanations," Donahue added. (36) Stiebing has told us that scientists reject highly ... planet....It was as if some cosmic sculptor was trying to split Mars in two. (90) Randolfo Rafael Pozos says that Bill Beatty, a geologist, believes Mars experienced a Velikovskian-type scenario, such as a passing close encounter event in the early days [and that] Michael Carr [an authority on Mars] ...
242. Planet in Crisis: the Earth's Last 12,000 Years [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Catastrophism Review 1997:2 (Apr 1998) Home | Issue Contents Planet in Crisis: the Earth's Last 12,000 Years By J.B . Delair Summary Earth's geological record is sporadically punctuated by well marked catastrophic signatures, caused either by limited activation of internal planetary mechanisms (e .g . earthquakes) generated by Earth itself, ... . 1, no:4 , 1971, pp. 522-531. 60. Putnam, WC, op. cit [2 ]. 61. Bergvist, B, Geologiska Förengingen I Stockholm Förhandlinger, vol.99, 1977, pp. 347-357. 62. Velichko, AA (ed.), Late Quaternary Environments of the Soviet ...
... systems was laid down from the west, but always from the east, or, rather the Ecliptic Pole, we have a further support of the theory already outlined of geological ages and earth construction (24). Tahiti belongs to the earliest geological ages; Teneriffe, long after, is nevertheless very ancient, and Vulcano is apparently younger ... had decreased noticeably. 59. The phenomena of the above is remarkable because no volcano existed in the area prior to the date of this event, and the theories of geologists that these volcanoes and the thousands of burning hillocks were thrown up at the same time as the plateau of black clay and augite crystals by some subterranean agency fail to ...
244. Quantavolution and Solaria Binaria [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... scientists that they are dealing with an exoterrestrial meteoritic phenomenon . In 1994 a conference called specially for the purpose, gives its blessing to the site, and in 1995 a geological map of the area is produced. The earlier tale of the discovery of the catastrophic origin of the horrendous scablands of Washington State by Professor J. H. Bretz ... , took several decades. Similar stories can be told about an increasing number of places around the world. Old volcanoes are turning into meteor craters. I wonder whether Italian geologists could be wrong in regarding Lago di Bolsena as a typical extinct volcano crater. The Roman encyclopedist Pliny said that it was the spot where a Jovian thunderbolt had destroyed ...

... mantle boundary.) Thirdly, the amino acid evidence may be just an artifact of the painstaking analysis of the KT deposits. Have adequate control analyses been done on other geological samples? Fourthly, perhaps the Deccan Traps event may account for the amino acids too. It used to be a truism of evolutionary theory that the limited biochemical variety ... ' associated with the relatively low temperature-pressure regime of vulcanism is not the same as the shocked quartz' produced in the high temperature-pressure regime of an impact. ' Being no geologist, I do not understand, merely pass on, Courtillot's statement (Scientific American October 1990 p. 56 para. 1): Shock features from KT samples are ...
246. Deluges [Books] [de Grazia books]
... uniting the four factors; comet, flood, terror, and the origin of religion. G.R . Carli followed in a few years with additional world-wide legends and geological evidence of catastrophe. The ancient reports of universal catastrophe, both men reasoned, bore the stamp of truth. In the century that followed, the natural and psychological ... dismissed as a fairy tale. It became a local flood along the Euphrates River, an account which the Hebrews picked up and patched into their holy scriptures. The influential geologist Seuss opined that "the traditions of other peoples do not in the least justify the assertion that the flood extended beyond the lower course of the Euphrates. More recently ...

... than a uniformistic, process. Geologists, even if endowed with futuristic diving and drilling gear, could not count on finding earth strata, such as those that mark off geological eras, periods and epochs because there is no evidence of any uniformitarian process that produces global stratification. Even if we grant that the interaction of water, organic compounds ... fossil dinosaurs, mammoths, or moas. They could reasonably expect to find no fossils at all, since fossilization is an exceptional, rather than a uniformistic, process. Geologists, even if endowed with futuristic diving and drilling gear, could not count on finding earth strata, such as those that mark off geological eras, periods and epochs ...
248. My Challenge to Conventional Views in Science [Journals] [Kronos]
... the survival of the victim of amnesia playing with thermonuclear weapons. But before that I had the task of confronting the humanistic heritage with the message of stones and bones- do geology and paleontology carry the same testimony? I went again from shelf to shelf, once more around the Earth, and the record from the bottom of the sea and ... entire Earth was involved. A psychological situation provoked the change in the attitude of the scholarly world with the beginning of the Victorian age. The founders of the sciences of geology- Buckland, Sidgwick, and Murchinson (who gave the classification of formations used today); of vertebrate paleontology- Cuvier; and of ichthyology- Louis Agassiz- never doubted that what ...

... all main layers in the principal areas of digging, and the number of small bags thus collected exceeded 400. They were shipped to Cincinnati for scientific examination by specialists in geology and botany."(35) When, in 1974, we discovered this passage, we made inquiry, only to find that the samples had never been analyzed ... with logging the cores brought up from the near subsurface of wells under drilling.(40) It may be possible in the future to make a cooperative arrangement with petroleum geologists to provide such data. Apart from its usefulness to social and natural history, near subsurface samples may reveal chemical and morphological peculiarities of areas overhanging oil pools, such ...
