... evolution is an historical process, then, it must be understood in an historical way. Much that has been written by paleontologists, as they reconstruct the events of the geological past, does not require evolutionary theory. However, the presuppositions which burden that theory, particularly "uniformity", have blinded mainstream paleontology to the catastrophic character of ... relatively short piece of less than 450 words, then he would have to survive at least a solid month or two without income. Capitalizing on Davis' mentioning "the geologist Charles Lyell", who replaced catastrophism with his uniformitarian view of nature, William J. Douglas of Rockville, MD observed: Davis speaks of "the uncomfortable grain ...

... . The purpose of this paper is to introduce new facts into the debate. The most convincing argument against Lyell's uniformitarianism, which has had a controlling influence on nearly all geological explanations, comes not from his contemporaries but from the works of the Greek Philosophers and Roman poets. This evidence was cited by Thomas Burnet in his argument in support ... changing orbit' and rotating crust'. None of these early authors was aware that the shift of the poles was the second and lesser of two catastrophic episodes. The geologists' insistence on the stability of the Earth has also influenced astronomers who maintain that there has been no radical deviation in the behaviour of the planets of the solar system ...

... The Ice Age Let us now consider another most important aspect of the approach of the Tertiary satellite: namely, the influence it had upon the terrestrial atmosphere, and the geological consequences this engendered. With this we enter upon a discussion of that most vexing and puzzling problem of geology: the problem of the Ice Age, the period when ... It was the rivers formed by the waters of the last ice age in disintegration which left these gravel and other deposits so high up. These Urstromtaeler', as German geologists have called them, these primeval river valleys', form one of the puzzles for the descriptive geology of the more recent periods of our Earth's life history. In ...

... not know the state of the earth's main magnet until he knows its magnetic moment, it appears that the uniformitarian never employs the earth's magnetic moment in his development of historical geology. His efforts tend toward direct extrapolation from rock magnetism, a local and very complex palaeomagnetic phenomenon. But anyone familiar with the frailties of that data knows that one ... A. A.

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 ...
