31. Catastrophic Theory of Mountain Uplifts (A Crustal Deformation Theory) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... . These and similar protestations that geographers have registered for more than a generation appear to run into a blank wall of dogma.5 Another elder statesman, this time in geophysics, has some interesting and similar conclusions: Scheidegger Thus, if the "deformation theory" applying to the Earth were properly defined, it would be, in principle ... Review of 150 Years of Thought We cite the observations and conclusions of two elder statesmen of the last generation, Richard Hartshorne, a geographer, and Adrian Scheidegger, a geophysicist. Hartshorne To sum up, it is almost inevitable to admit that the physiographic evidence regarding features on the Earth's surface is such that it must be assumed that some ...

Thus, even when we accept the established views of geophysicists, we face a contradiction. Based on the established view, Venus should have enormous amounts of water vapor in its atmosphere, but this is not the case. ...

33. The Inexact Science of Radiometric Dating [Journals] [SIS Review]
... clocks, as instanced by the techniques first described in this paper, are indeed in chaos and that we must question the basic soundness of various sciences such as cosmology, geophysics and in fact the earth sciences in general. Radiocarbon Dating Radiocarbon dating is a measurement of the age of dead matter by comparing the radiocarbon content with that in living ... necessary to make explicit an understanding of the evidence of the rocks as presented by Earth Scientists. Consequently, geological eras have parameters measured in hundreds of millions of years. Geophysicists believe that Africa and South America, originally one continent, broke apart over 100 million years ago. From that time onwards, these two continents have been separating from ...

Thousands of ... rise occurred, along with many other bulges, then a considerable expansion might be demonstrated by survey without resorting to theoretical physics. The globe has many slight bulges. Russian geophysicists have recently described its shape as formed by at least two geometric networks of lattices, a many-faceted figure [9 ]. So there may even be a pattern to ...

And I am perfectly willing to go along with this suggestion with the comment that it does seem to create problems with the nebula ... . . . Venus was formed more recently than the other planets', said Anders. " 'The statements [in the ad] are not accurate, ' said geophysicist William M.

One notes that the inquiry strikes into two lines of study: the possibly catastrophic origins of mankind and geophysical catastrophism.

That is: Target Earth: The Role of Large Meteors in Earth Science. Also more daring and provocative, and also highly professional in method, is geophysicist Melvin Cook's work that I already mentioned, Prehistory and Earth Models, published obscurely in England a decade later, which employed purely terrestrial forces in explaining Earth's features. ...

... other. Velikovsky and his supporters have tended to treat the reversals and the tilts as related but separate problems. In like manner, our conventional cousins in the world of geophysics have treated the problems of ancient and recent ice ages as separate matters. Their solution for the evidence of ancient ice caps in equatorial regions is to move the surface ... ages had been accepted as fact for 120 years.

Moore, et al, in the Journal of Geophysical Research, analyzed this question and concluded: "Bulk densities of surface materials of Mars cover the range found in natural terrestrial materials, ' ' (39) though ... as dust particles on the Earth are moving at greater velocities than on Earth. Furthermore, these storms occur periodically and last from three to six months. Space scientists and geophysicists were thus able to use well-known, experimentally-proven erosion equations to deduce the erosion rate on Mars.
