251. Changing Sea Levels [Journals] [Aeon]
... , taken in opposition to the short term of the Mosaic chronology. Any effort to interpret the movement of Earth's crust in terms of catastrophic events was effectively stifled by the Geological society's refusal to publish anything even hinting at a catastrophic or Biblical base. What follows is based on macrogeomorphology and explains how physical forces, identified by the forms created ... scenarios, is satisfactory. It is no wonder that, while orthodox theories concerning the development of Earth in historic times are just as speculative, confusion rules the day. Geologists and the dependent sciences that have been developed on the basis provided by geologists have been set on a false path. The decision taken by Charles Lyell to pursue the ...
... , to account for at least some of the surface features [8 ,11,12]. Alternatively, as suggested by Eugene Shoemaker of the U.S . Geological Survey, the new satellites might later have broken up as a result of further impacts, and the component parts patched together again, in an imperfect fashion, by ... may well be reached that external factors have had a very significant effect on the course of evolution. On the basis of what we know, it might be thought that geologists (investigators of the Earth's crust) and palaeontologists (investigators of ancient life, mainly through the study of fossils) would long ago have found, even without the ...
253. Thoth Vol II, No. 4: February 28, 1998 [Journals] [Thoth]
... Thornhill Ok, Ok, Wal, here is one geologist who is unabashedly not a Lyellian. Professionally having a catastrophic bent is not good, considering the tribality of the geological profession in Australia, but what the heck, genius has to pays its price. : -) [WT] Good to hear from a catastrophist outback beyond the ...

254. A Continent Torn Apart. Ch.6 Mountains And Rifts (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... fissure."3 He observed also that immense floods of lava gushed out of the earth along the Rift and a most vigorous volcanic action took place. Suess brought to geology the now generally accepted concept of Gondwana land, a continental mass that occupied the larger portion of the Indian Ocean, and that in a relatively recent subsidence was torn ... or another had been the cause of this rift valley. "The simplest and earliest thought was that Africa had been pulled apart."2 However, another school of geologists questioned whether the Rift could not have been produced under horizontal pressure, which forced the margins of the rift valley up and the valley strip down. After a long ...
... so forces its way upwards through assumed "faults" or weaknesses in the earth's crust. Similarly the earthquakes usually accompanying an eruption which shake the surrounding region are deemed by geological dogma to be caused by a subterranean readjustment of the various strata due to this alleged shrinking of the earth's interior. Opposed to such dogma, it may be said ... one time, millions of years ago, an incandescent mass is one thing, that it has continued in such a condition, except for a comparatively thin crust, as geologists teach, is quite another. The only reason for this assertion is that geologists cannot otherwise explain away earthquakes or volcanoes, and yet, by trying to account for ...
256. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the 1950's, to the extent that an earthquake in 1957 which was felt from Bristol to Windermere was denied as such by scientific authority in the form of a professor of geology at Nottingham University. It is small wonder that Velikovsky's ideas were denied in a similar, illogical manner in the same decade. Could there be any connection with the ... the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary is extra-terrestrial in origin. Catastrophic Geology Today source: Institute for Creation Research, ACTS & FACTS vol.13, no.2 , Feb.1984 Geologists would normally give a time scale in the order of magnitude of thousands of years to erode a formation with canyons a hundred feet deep and an elaborate system of rills ...
257. Cosmic Heretics [Journals] [Aeon]
... , sent Mars to molest the Earth and Moon, and brought a Martian period that endured for rather less than a century. All of this had severe and prolonged after-affects geologically, biologically, and culturally. V. endeavored to be exact, allowing the series of Mars incidents to occur between the years -776 and -687 on the basis of ... The Velikovsky Case." Immanuel Velikovsky, as you probably know, is a highly controversial figure whose book Worlds in Collision incited the wrath of a number of astronomers and geologists twelve years ago. Several other works dealt with similar themes of prehistoric catastrophe, social upheavals, and the origins of myth. Another book, somewhat distinct, is ...
258. Cataclysms of the Earth [Books]
... which produce the same effects even today, let us consider the creation of the fossil forests of Yellowstone Park, described in Part One. In the U.S . Geological Survey, 1912, Trees and Vegetation, Arnold Hague mentions about 2,000 springs in the Yellowstone area, mostly alkaline hot water springs, and states that 20 ... contact with the coal. The occurrences-one on the south side of Owl Creek Mountain, and another on the southwest side of the Wind River Mountain- are interpreted by most geologists as being the result of thrust faulting that took place when the mountains were uplifted." Coal beds are found below layers of limestone. Limestone was created in the ...
259. Solar System Studies (Part 2) [Journals] [Aeon]
... ? The small dimensions of this shift indicate the pull was short term (as in centuries to millennia) rather than eons. Furthermore the effect is relaxing, and in geological terms the distorting influence must have been remarkably recent. This explains the successively higher beach lines found above sea level along Hudson Bay and the rising bottom of the north ... the splitting up of the Pacific plate which is not yet complete. This split has propagated south along the Emperor seamounts, then easterly along the Hawaiian Island chain. Many geologists believe these structures have formed because the bed of the Pacific Ocean is sliding over a stationary hot spot in Earth's mantle. The commonly-theorized presence of such hot spots defies ...
260. New Methods of Investigation [Books]
... started all over the world. As our planet presents thousands of natural bowl-shaped features of varying size which, at first sight, could easily be taken for impact craters, geology established strict criteria for the determination of structures of meteoritic origin. A crater was only to be accepted as being of certain meteoritic origin if, in or around it ... rocks under high explosion pressures. Magnetic and gravimetric measurements were made to locate and determine the disturbances caused by the impacts. Borings were made and the cores carefully examined. Geologists maintained that the lack of well-established siderites was enough to deny meteoritic origin, as vulcanism offered the easiest and simplest way to explain the formation of most circular depressions existing ...
