81. Evidence for the Extreme Youth of Venus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... only be true if one accepts qualifiers like somehow' and mysteriously' as scientific descriptions of processes on Venus. More likely it indicates that our ideas of the relationship between geological cause and effect on the Earth may be wrong. Dr S. R. Taylor, a planetologist of the Australian National University Research School of Earth Sciences, summed ... is left, however improbable, is the truth'. And it would be hard to find a more improbable planet than Venus." [3 ] Predictably, planetary geologists take the Earth's twin' approach and are thereby forced to make the faintly absurd pronouncement: The overall impression is that Venus is a dynamic world that has been shaped ...
82. The Flood [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... immense lakes that would discharge their water, through passes, into rivers which would carve deep channels and leave ghost shorelines at higher elevations. This has already been confirmed by geological observation. According to Reginald Daly: [B ]eaches, all over the world, have been raised by forces shoving up from below. At each place the ... ...the possibility remains open that the initial carving of the Great Sphinx may be even older than 9,000 years ago.... Privately, West's geologists suspect an even greater age for this remarkable Egyptian effigy.... This is required to produce the "advanced state of water weathering" they detect (in ...

... discipline itself with the most recent school of thought within the discipline. In the earth sciences, for example, geologists have tended since the 1960s to equate "scientific" geology with plate tectonics (which assumes gradual continental drift). Prior to the 1960s, however, the decades-old theory of continental drift was widely regarded as pseudo-science. To ... but especially the more prestigious natural sciences, to identify the discipline itself with the most recent school of thought within the discipline.

... to believe. We can now construct a model for the Velikovsky Affair. When Velikovsky appeared to question the group's faith in the traditional history of the Solar System and the geological history of the Earth and even the hegemony of Newtonian gravitation, the reaction of the ASG (fury, panic, astonishment, insult, destructiveness) had nothing to ... long time, are merely a "balance about a mean." (52) Lyell was a barrister, an orator and tactician, and he engaged all the leading geologists in debate. Within a few years most of them had capitulated (Sedgwick recanted in public) and uniformitarianism carried the day in England. Lyell had achieved the " ...
85. Anomalous Occurrence of Crocodilia in Eocene Polar Forests [Journals] [SIS Review]
... north of the Arctic Circle. Fossil forests have been located on Ellesmere Island and Axel Heiberg Island in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Identification of flora and fauna, and regional geological studies indicate an Eocene age and a polar latitude for these ancient forests. Field work from the summer of 1976 onwards led to the recognition of alligator and crocodile bones ... origin. Especially before the adoption of the theories of continental drift and plate tectonics in the 1960s, tropical fossils found near modern glaciers posed an awkward set of problems for geologists. New field work since 1970 has shattered the easy illusion that drifting land masses explain' finding the tropics in the Arctic. It is now plain that since late ...
86. Earth Tectonics Viewed from Rock Mechanics [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of Science and Mormonism (1967), his publications number about 200 and have appeared in journals such as Science, Nature, J. Geophys. Research, J. Geolog. Research and Creation Research Society Quarterly. He holds about 100 patents on such things as explosives, explosive devices, slurry blasting agents, etc. Laws of brittle ... oceanic and continental crusts behave as fluids over periods of billions of years. Thus Carey was basing a theory on a theory, thus begging the question'. Polls of geologists ran so strongly in favour of continental drift that the earth scientists declared 1959 as International Geophysical Year (IGY) and settled soon thereafter on Pangaea, the primordial continent ...
87. The Tertiary Age (Life History of Our Earth) [Books]
... the Anchorage Bollard Evidences of Earlier Satellites The Continental Tables The Capture of Luna Chapter VI The Tertiary Age We might now try to consider in more detail various aspects of the geological work of the predecessor of our Moon, the Tertiary satellite', the sum-total of whose activity in the life history of the Earth we call the Tertiary Age According ... Palaeozoic rock yeas forced up through the Mesozoic strata where they had been riven by faults. The faulting to which the old rocks owe their present position is regarded by most geologists as having happened in early Tertiary times. This tectonic activity occurred, especially to the north of the African anchorage, in what is now northern Central Germany, as ...
88. ASTROBLEMES AND GASTROBLEMES [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon II:1 (1989) Home | Issue Contents Astroblemes And Gastroblemes C. Warren Hunt In the early nineteenth century the geological profession set catastrophism aside in favour of gradualist solutions to virtually all problems. Consequently, it was electrifying when, in 1961, Dietz and Grieve, respected geologists of the Geological Survey of Canada ... proposed an asteroidal impact to explain the Vredefort structure in South Africa. As it turns out, their attribution is not supported by myriad detailed facts that have subsequently been revealed by intensive research. Nevertheless, the stimulation of research into "astroblemes," as they called the phenomenon, has been important and productive. This paper is one of ...

... conclusion is startling. If the sea was once two miles lower, where could all the extra water have gone? ' "It is regarded as an accepted truth in geology that the seas have not changed their beds with the exception of encroachment by shallow water on depressed continental areas. Thus it was difficult to accept the startling conclusion that ... previous era, lasting from 30 to 40 million years, when the ridge was quiet and sediments fell onto a stationary carpet . . . (Emphasis added) "Some geologists have reminded me that it would be very abnormal indeed if mid-oceanic ridges were covered with thick sediments. On this jagged terrain falling sediment, like snow, should not ...
