71. Oberg's Unscientific Method [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... Beatty, Andrew Chaikin [and] Eric Burgess are all friends of mine, fine wordsmiths and popularisers, but they are not scientists and they are not primary sources of geological information (they would be astonished and appalled to see their books misused in this way); ditto the [Frederick I.] Ordway and [Wernher] von ... Oberg, is a reliable scientific source. I also cited The New Solar System on page 76 of my paper, quoting from Paul D. Spudis, a highly respected geologist of the U. S. Geological Survey in Flagstaff, Arizona.(10) Spudis was also a member of the site selection team for Viking 2 to Mars ...
... Earth once Possessed a Saturn-like System of Rings. PREPARED BY STEPHEN BOWERS, A. M., Ph. D. Editor of the Ventura Observer.

VENTURA, CALIFORNIA: THE OBSERVER ... in sending forth this pamphlet is to call the attention of intelligent readers to a theory which must engage the attention of scientists in the future, and which will enable the geologist to make clear many things which are now obscure. I respectfully ask for the following pages a candid reading, and for further information on the subject refer the reader ...
73. Crustal Distortion in the Holocene [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... a catastrophe at the boundary of the Pleistocene and the Holocene periods. This boundary is a kind of shut-off as it marks a phase of mass extinction in conjunction with vast geological changes, such as mountain building episodes, volcanism and marine transgressions. Kloosterman associated it with a burnt charcoal layer – delineating vast landscape fires. It has been suggested ... : SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 2005:1 (February 2005) Home | Issue Contents Crustal Distortion in the Holocene Phillip Clapham The talk at the 2004 AGM by the geologist Han Kloosterman [1 ] pinpointed a catastrophe at the boundary of the Pleistocene and the Holocene periods. This boundary is a kind of shut-off as it marks a phase ...
74. What is Uniformitarianism and how did it get here? [Journals] [Horus]
... directly connected to a highly political issue: the legitimacy of the Monarchy. Almost thirty years earlier, Charles Lyell had paved the way with the publication of his Principles of Geology, in three volumes, between 1830 and 1833. Geology was in its infancy, but Lyell and others had labored diligently to lay the foundations of the new science ... had training in geology, but did not pursue it as a livelihood. In fact, an amazing aspect of the London Geological Society is that none of its founders were geologists experienced in or prepared to do field work, but gentlemen inclined to meet for dinner and talk. Even so, in its second year, the London Geological Society ...
75. General Conclusions [Books]
... Acknowledgements | Notes And References | General Conclusions The time has now come to bring this book to an end. First we had a quick glance at the principles of orthodox geology and pointed out their weaknesses. We followed the changes that have taken place in the theory of evolution. We reviewed the way in which the science of meteoritics, ... is only valid if it can be shown that impacts to produce the effects postulated have in fact occurred. What is the present-day balance of opinion on this subject? Many geologists and geophysicists-especially the latter accept the existence of structures, having diameters 200, 300,and even 450 km., which may be of meteoritic origin, and have ...
76. Loess [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... tiny stone accumulation." According to E. W. Hilgard, the same is also true of the Mississippi Valley loess. "In the Sixth Annual Report of the Geological Survey of Minnesota, Prof. N. H. Winchell pointedly refers to the obvious transitions of the loess deposits into those of the newer Glacial period. Similarly, ... origin of the formation. Wind action produces the thick part of its deposit on the lee side away from the source of the material, which in this case, most geologists assume to be the glacial flood plain of the Missouri, just the opposite of what the conditions actually are."209 These are but a few contradictions that the ...
77. Intensity, Scope and Suddenness [Books] [de Grazia books]
... such intimations of the Earth's exoterrestrial transactions, until the earth sciences will undergo their own theoretical quantavolution. In this process, poorly equipped though we may be to move between geology and history, we shall have to reconcile the two modes of thought and bodies of fact. There ought to be no logical conflict between natural laws and historical events ... a fine frenzy rolling, doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven." "So," says Ager, "ultimately must the eye of the geologist, in seeking the nature of the control. One always seems to come back to climate as the primary explanation of the sort of phenomena I have been discussing, ...
78. Stephen Jay Gould and Immanuel Velikovsky [Books]
... Cited by Gertrude Himmelfarb Darwin and the Darwinian Revolution (1968), p. 360. Three years after the AAAS symposium on Velikovsky, Stephen Jay Gould, Professor of Geology and science historian at Harvard University, took aim at Velikovsky with an essay, "Velikovsky in Collision." (1 ) In this critical analysis, Gould brings ... . Again, we run into the double standard critics of Velikovsky employ. In essence, Gould recognized every aspect of Velikovsky's approach to myth in the work of 19th century geologists. Every propagandist tactic employed by uniformitarians of that era starting with Lyell- who unleashed the misinformation that catastrophists were Bible fundamentalists, as were those who spread this propaganda thereafter ...
79. Collapsing Tests of Time [Books] [de Grazia books]
... . In North America, 35 epochs, comprised in 250 rock formations which are formed of a great many less thick and distinct strata, have been recognized as composing the geologic column back to the "beginning of life," the Paleozoic of 570 million years ago [1 ]. [Lately a billion years.] The Pre-Cambrian before ... this seems to be nonsense, the nonsense may be in the idea, not in the telling. There is no such heap, no complete geologic column. And a geologist would be foolhardy to defend its historical presence. Eighty miles up is 75 miles above Mt. Everest. Eighty miles down probably everywhere on Earth, one has passed ...
