321. Physics, Astronomy and Chronology [Articles]
... presented in an odd fashion, like today's talk. Now the three problems I thought I would pose, is (1 ) the problem of dating of strata, the geological dating system, for which I bring some samples recently collected on field trips; (2 ) the problem of dating using astronomical methods; and (3 ) the ... , I suppose. All this process of building mountains and making sediments and soil has been going on for the whole history of the planet, and if you take the geologists' estimate of how much sediment you should have, to quote De Grazia, we have a column 150 km high, most of which is missing, because anywhere ...
322. Chapter 5 Pottery Dating, Faience, and Tin [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... tin) in Mesopotamian and Egyptian Middle Kingdom sites persists. Lloyd Weeks, in Antiquity for March 1999, discusses the "tin problem" as it still exists: "Geological research has yet to locate substantial tin deposits in Anatolia [Turkey]. "Alleged tin deposits in other areas of Western Asia have largely failed to withstand the scrutiny ... modern geological research . . . no tin deposits exist in Syria or the Levant. . . . "Thus the majority of regions of Western Asia have no geologically-verified tin deposits, and those that are known show no archaeological evidence of Bronze Age exploitation and are located in 31 Dayton, op.cit., p. 21 176 VELIKOVSKIAN ...

The Geological Survey of Canada's research programme over the past 30 years has investigated craters caused by hypervelocity meteorite impacts, first in Canada and then all over the world. They have ... in Ragnarok), who pointed out that the pebbles found in them were striated in a peculiar way which he attributed to their having been formed in a comet's tail. Geologist Professor von Bitter countered with the received geological theory based on Lyell's the present is the key to the past'. He cited erosion, deposition, liquefaction, mountain ...

325. Afterword [Books]
... . There were many references in Pliny, Strabo, Herodotus, and the ancient Egyptian sources that I could have used profitably in that volume, but I resisted. The geological evidence had to stand on its own merits. Although we recognize the interconnection between fields, each field needs to be discussed within its own frame of reference. In ... . I had shown that the very same problems which plagued scientists in one field were identical to the problems in the next field. Common problems plagued the astronomer, the geologist, and the historian of Babylonian mathematics. Each of these specialists spoke about the very same subject without recognizing it. This year there are five symposia discussing my work ...
326. The 'Unconscious' as a Literary Revolt Against Science [Books] [de Grazia books]
... , apparently, defined the U paradigm in its present circumscribed form (which already shows it to be on the defensive) as a mere hypothesis that rates of change in geology are to be considered as having been uniform unless proven to the contrary. Rather we take up the U idea in its broadest form as a world view, in ... earth were constant on the by now established theory that the solar system was mechanically stable and permanently self-sustaining." The close friendship and association of Darwin with the great U geologists adds credibility to the labeling of a U paradigm. In fact the peak prestige of the U paradigm would probably be registered around 1875, after the publication of Descent ...
327. Northwest Indian Myths of Catastrophe [Articles]
... can talk about the wisdom of the gentle hunter-gathers in peace. I encountered Velikovsky's work shortly after Worlds in Collision and Ages in Chaos came out. I was then a geology students at the Colorado School of Mines and I would spend some class periods looking out the window at the hogback and Flatirons of the Front Range and half-heartedly listen to ... to the sea in rafts with pitch torches. Then severe volcanic activity at Mount Hood and mount Saint Helens caused massive earth movement and the bridge fell in. Since modern geologists suggest that the scablands flood virtually scoured the Columbia river valley at this point in the river, it would appear that these Indian tales go back prior to the scablands ...

... to a few thousand years. Even more powerful super-eruptions, with a VEI of 8, occur every 100,000 years or so, on average, in the generally-accepted geological timescale. (The conventional geological timescale, based on radiometric dating, has been questioned by some. However, apart from those who believe, on the testimony of ... Adam Sedgwick, William Buckland and William Whewell, saw the extinction of species as evidence of episodic global convulsions. Their proposed mechanism, based on the ideas of the French geologist, Léonce Élie de Beaumont, was that the gradual cooling of the Earth from an incandescent beginning gave rise to a periodic wrinkling of the crust, producing new mountain ...
329. The AAAS Symposium on Velikovsky [Books]
... only did Galileo pursue this method of first writing for the educated, non-establishment public, but so did Charles Lyell, the great uniformitarian, in his volumes, Principles of Geology, about which historian of science Claude C. Albritton, Jr. writes. "The Principles proved to be an eminently successful and influential work . . . . ...

... crystal of iron. Convection currents and dynamo effects do not then need to be invoked to explain the Earth's magnetic field if this crystalline core produces a permanent magnetic field.

Another geologist is interested in central Nebraska where he has spotted a crater and tektites which he thinks indicates a meteorite impact 2,800 years ago. He thinks the big, ...
