12. Actualism in Geology and in Geography [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... great geological controversies of the first half of the 19th century are usually described as ending in the rejection of catastrophism and diluvialism and the victory of uniformitarianism, or actualism as it is called on the Continent. The names of HUTTON and PLAYFAIR in Britain, Of VON HOFF in Germany and, somewhat later, those Of PREVOST in France and LYELL in England are linked to the latter theory, whereas WERNER, CUNIER and BUCKLAND, among others, are quoted as protagonists of catastrophism. Thus in a rather simplified picture the debate for instance on the origins of granite and basalt, Plutonism v. Neptunism, is linked to the controversy about the importance of causes now operating' and ...

"When we frankly face these facts, we are constrained to admit with Lyell, that it would be impossible for herds of Mammoths and rhinoceroses to subsist at present throughout the year, even in the southern part of Siberia, covered as it is with snow during the winter. '5 The situation has not changed one iota from that expressed by Howorth. In fact, it has gotten much worse as deeper ...

... : I | II | III | IIII | PART IV : Appendixes I | II | III | IV | Acknowledgements | Notes And References | AUTHOR'S PREFACE Here is another book dealing with cosmic catastrophism. One of the most important problems science has had to solve is to discover whether the world has evolved gradually, by imperceptible changes, as Lyell and Darwin propounded (and as the majority of scientists nowadays believe), whether it has progressed by leaps, under the impact of global catastrophes (as is thought by a minority), or whether perhaps the two theories are compatible, so that a process of slow evolution generally prevailed, periodically interrupted by world-wide cataclysmic events. These ...

... And one may well ask, what is Gould's own understanding and attitude toward this type of parodied caricature of catastrophists and catastrophist theory? In his very fine book, Times Arrow Times Cycle, Gould goes out of his way to unmask this as a propagandistic form of disrespectful insult. For in this book, and in others, he castigates Lyell, a lawyer, and the others who followed in Lyell's footsteps, for using this technique over and over again. That is, it is "The Big Lie" couched in terms so as to wreck havoc on one's scientific opponents by repeating the false and caricatured rendition of their catastrophist theory over and over again. "If Lyell ...

... Deluge. But they could not point to a satisfactory physical cause of such catastrophe, and expert estimate made it obvious that, had all the clouds over the earth emptied themselves simultaneously, the earth would not have been covered by even one foot of water. Then the geological record showed that there had been not one but several deluges. Lyell wrote in a letter: "Conebeare [geologist and Bishop of Bristol] admits three deluges before the Noachian! and Buckland adds God knows how many catastrophes besides, so we have driven them out of the Mosaic record fairly."1 Sedgwick, according to Lyell, "decided on four or more deluges."2 In his ...

... Agassiz read a paper before the Geological Society of London, summarizing the excursion in the light of the Ice Age theory, and Buckland, who was then president of the society, followed with a paper of his own on the same subject. Even before the meeting he had written to Agassiz of the success of his missionary work: "Lyell has adopted your theory in toto!!! On my showing him a beautiful cluster of moraines, within two miles of his father's house, he instantly accepted it, as solving a host of difficulties that have all his life embarrassed him."3 Lyell, too, agreed to read a paper less than three weeks after this ...

20. Poleshifts, Catastrophes, And Myths [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... as it is related to a poleshift catastrophe in historical times. The reason that this idea has not been tested is testament to the stranglehold uniformitarianism has had on the mind of science over the past century and a half. This book opens with an historically significant citation that the evidence of the Earth spoke eloquently of great recent catastrophes. Charles Lyell looking at the catastrophic thought of that time, chose to damn it and all such concepts to the unspeakable realm of pseudoscience and fantasy. And I emphasize that Lyell set out directly to destroy the view of catastrophism from the very beginning. According to Henshaw Ward: "What Lyell was plotting when he wrote his book [Principles of ...
