271. Antiquated Textbooks: Redesigning the Solar System [Journals] [Aeon]
... to account for this paradox,  but the most popular to date- which, incidentally, does away with Whitehouse's "old-looking surface"- concerns "a geological event of global proportions [that] wiped out all the old craters some 800 million years ago."  This "geological event" was more catastrophic ... ocean more than 2,000 feet deep..."  But then the ocean disappeared- not through a cataclysmic event, but through the diligence of geologist Ken Edgett and geomorphologist Michael Malin. Scrutinizing several images snapped by the Mars Global Surveyor, this team could not find any traces of "wave-cut cliffs or sediment shaped ...
272. Fingerprints of the Gods: do ancient relicts point to an advanced civilisation 15,000 years ago? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Giza, gazing east towards the equinoctial sunrise. Figure 2 Olmec head We start with the Great Sphinx of Egypt. I shall be dealing later with the issue of the geological weathering patterns on the body of the Sphinx but at this stage I want to touch on something rather more impressionistic, the face of the Sphinx, which is assumed ... Lake Titicaca. Lake Titicaca has reduced in depth by 100 feet and receded by 12 miles since Tiahuanaco was built as a port on its shore. I have talked to geologists from the British Geological Survey working in that area and have asked them about the rate of reduction of the waters of Lake Titicaca and they all seemed to feel that ...
273. Reviewing Velikovsky'S Venus And Mars Theories [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... 70 miles wide). However Velikovsky and a handful of his colleagues, the children, have objected, and haven't backed down like good little children. The leaders of geology also have been similarly displeased. In geology, rarely was there a contrary word to the dogma, Lyell's Time Scale. This is despite literally millions of examples of ... cannot retain water vapor. But was it always so? In the 1960s, when the first photographs of the surface of Mars were taken by Mariner missions, astronomers, geologists and others were thunderstruck. Those Martian photos revealed for the first time the physical geography of Mars. It was discovered that the frigid surface of Mars contained over 40 ...
274. Volcanic Systems Ch.3 (The Riddle of the Earth) [Books]
... . This lull dissembled the fears of the people of St. Pierre, and in fact excursions were arranged to visit the neighbourhood of the crater, while the Professor of Geology at the University in St. Pierre wrote articles for the local journals telling the public they had nothing to fear. A few days later not a soul was left ... other lines related to this active section have been described previously, including all the Atlantic islands and those in the Caribbean Sea. A century ago Moreau de Jonne's, a geologist of standing, pointed out that these volcanic chains usually follow the meridians from north to south. We have the visual evidence of this before our eyes and records prove ...
275. Fire and Ash [Books] [de Grazia books]
... fires, but which to de Grazia seemed to have been associated with holospheric catastrophe and world-wide conflagration and/or incredibly heavy ash fall-out. J. Lamar Worzel of Lamont Geological Observatory (Columbia University) published important findings in 1969, entitling them "Extensive Deep Sea Sub-Bottom Reflections Identified as White Ash." The analyzed deep ... forest fires, during a particularly dry spell, would probably do so without requiring any special mechanism."[1 ] Even to speak of a universal conflagration gives a geologist cause to blush, as Derek Ager, the author of these lines, remarks in another context. Without the "special mechanism", forest fires, started by ...
276. Continental Tropism and Rafting [Books] [de Grazia books]
... accept gladly the facts that the continents were once together and then moved long distances and still exhibit minute motion. We accept also the facts showing the ocean bottoms to be geologically very young. Several other facts are grist for our mill, and some minor theories are also credible; we have mentioned several of these and will mention others. ... of the combined, inseparable continental-oceanic lithosphere. That the Earth may have expanded or be expanding in volume along its fracture lines is a theory not to be dismissed, but geologists for the most part prefer to portray crustal, lithospheric drift (carrying the continents) as a perpetual steady-rate movement, which disgorges molten rocks from deep in the mantle ...
277. Magnetism and Axial Tilts [Books] [de Grazia books]
... a theory according to which the Earth was in grip of a huge external magnetic field of the solar binary system until perhaps eight thousand years ago; during almost all of geological time, it could not reverse its field. In fact, it is argued that this same magnetic field and its reciprocal electrical current are the present geomagnetic field and ... considerable, for geographic tilts also some, for upside down tilts little, for stop-and-reverse rotation very little. There is no way in which astronomical assurances can be lent to geologists on this account. Conversely, there is enough doubt on all scores to let geologists be open to the possibility of several catastrophically effective maneuvers of "Spaceship Earth" ...
278. The Youthful Planet Venus [Articles]
... immense lava flows. In fact as recent as 1989, Isaac Asimov, the late popular science writer, admitted: "For years astronomers had believed that Venus was a geologically dead place. Although quakes, volcanoes and other activity surely wracked the planet at one time, it seemed certain that Venus was quiet today." Therefore, if ... all over to create a planet-wide scattering of at least 100,000 volcanoes of all sizes. "The radar images cannot show if the Venusian volcanoes are still erupting but geologists are convinced that many must be currently active. Detailed radar images show parts of Venus so rough that they resemble very fresh lavas on the Earth, including the peak ...
279. The Kensington Runestone, John Whittaker and <Em>the Skeptical Inquirer</em> (Part II) [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... geologists, proved long exposure to the elements. When Professor Whittaker wrote "Ohman carved the stone," (46) he must have assumed that Ohman knew enough about geology to have induced enough weathering in his chisel cuts, so expertly, that he fooled the geologists who had spent their lives learning and understanding this phenomenon; also, ... Scandinavia could translate the whole runestone in 1898, but many argue that a semiliterate farmer could. The unbelievers continued to look for a forger and concentrated on Ohman, but geologist N. H. Winchell, secretary of the Minnesota Historical Society, met with Ohman and stated that "[ t ]he honesty and candor of Mr. Ohman ...
280. The Saturn Problem [Journals] [SIS Review]
... their case, arguing that they somehow preserve memories of a different sky' thousands of years earlier. The Saturnists have also conspicuously failed to produce any evidence from palaeoclimatology or geology to show that there was once a real Golden Age'. Indeed, not long before the rise of the first farming settlements, about 8000BC, much of the ... supported by hard scientific evidence: The Alleröd conflagration near the end of the Ice Age which may have wiped out the Pleistocene mega-fauna. Though this has only recently argued by geologist Han Kloosterman , my feeling is that this brilliant insight will shortly become commonplace in our understanding of the transition to the Holocene. The catastrophic flooding of ...
