... an explanation of the rapid evolution from Australopithecus to Homo erectus to the Neanderthal Man. He suggested that "a careful reexamination of the fossil evidence in concert with a revised geological chronology" would show that "some postulated ancestors were probably neighbors." "Taking a non-uniformitarian approach to hominid evolution," Fleising asked, "is it not ... that the evolving drama consists of synchronic rather than diachronic events?" Some geologists were also being nudged toward catastrophism. Based on his field investigation, Johan B. Kloosterman (32) concluded that the Amazonian volcanoes of Brazil were actually giant caldera-volcanoes; on the same day that Nature received his report it was returned to him. As a ...

... too gradual to suit his own taste, just as it had been too catastrophic for uniformitarian geologists. (20) Ironically, in the 1960s Velikovsky's dramatic vision of sudden geological change may have served as a partial stimulus for his friend, Harry H. Hess, to revive and modify the Wegenerian scenario by suggesting plate tectonics (not Velikovsky's ... apart over time, forming the present geographic distribution. Wegener's ideas of "catastro-phism in slow motion" enjoyed great favor for a time, but from the mid-1920s more conventional geologists were able to demonstrate quantitatively that the dynamic forces that Wegener proposed were too weak to produce the effects he hypothesized, and the theory went into a sharp decline as ...
