... live very long. Far from being the end of a life, however, it proved a new beginning. René took up fresh interests, particularly in catastrophist explanations of geological and chronological problems and he began the research which subsequently led to the publication of Bombarded Earth (John Baker, London, 1964 - see the retrospective review in SISR ... work. Rather than being vilified, it was largely ignored. The time was not ripe, even in the mid-sixties, for the consideration of catastrophist theories; as one geologist remarked, Bombarded Earth came twenty years too early. Though eventually receiving a belated, but not antagonistic review in Nature, the overall lack of response dissuaded Gallant from ...

... answer, and our task is to discover the truth with the help of presumptions', said Wegener in 1915.24 These two statements are still true today! `Geology has reconstructed with great success the events that lie behind the present appearance of much of the Earth's landscape .. .. Unfortunately, when it comes to fundamental processes ... exactly as two layers of identical sediments having the same thickness, containing similar fossils, are not necessarily deposited during the same time. This is in fact recognized by the geologists who admit the existence of homotaxial deposits. The latter define series of rocks containing identical assemblages of fossil remains deposited in different places at different epochs. It should be ...

As far as I can make out, he was saying that if you look at a representation of the zodiac arranged ... found on Earth: craters, vulcanism, a single global fire. A geological boundary layer between the Cretaceous and Tertiary shows up all over the Earth except in Antarctica. Geologists accept that a large asteroid impact caused it. There are fragments near Pluto's orbit, which appears to be another Asteroid Belt, so maybe it was not a unique ...

... was that in my book I gave many sources showing that "The water of all oceans and seas was divided.") Dr. David Delo, of the American Geological Institute, asserted that all mountains were "formed millions of years ago," and no new mountains had sprung up since then. Therefore, Velikovsky "appears to ... by-passing all the sound scientific observations of a multitude of geologists made during the past 100 years." The last remark is incorrect because for more than thirty years there has been hardly any other geologist in the Old or the New World who would contradict the fact established by explorers on all major mountain chains of the world- the Himalayas, the ...

Neocatastrophism? is a translation by V. Axel Firsoff of an address by the late Otto Schindewolf to the Deutsche Geologische Gesellschaft in 1961, and deals with a theme running through the issue, the correlation of faunal discontinuities with the transitions of the great geological eras; L.

It is the prototype of impact crater and which is ... they haven't done it because they have made all their studies on the basis that the Earth is a rigid body. By saying, we are astronomers, we are not geologists, they have taken the assumption that the Earth is a rigid body, but the Earth is not a rigid body. I look at "Bombarded Earth"in ...
