41. Atlantis - The Lost Continent Finally Found [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... , also called Sthanu, an epithet meaning "Pillar of Heaven" in Sanskrit. Q17: How was Atlantis actually destroyed? A: By means of the giant cataclysm we call the Flood. The views on the Flood- and indeed on global cataclysms in general- has been grossly misstated by geologists ever since the times of Darwin and Lyell. Quite often they are caused by meteoritic/planetary impacts of extra-terrestrial origin. Far more often, they are caused by the cataclysmic endings of the Ice Age Episodes which have occurred fairly regularly at intervals of 30,000 years or so. The Flood was indeed caused by one such, and is just the last of a long ...

... was recorded that since the beginning of the last century no fewer than fifty two volcanic islands had arisen from the sea, nineteen of which had disappeared and ten were inhabited. (J . Lewin, Earthquakes, p.25.) The Coral Islands of the Pacific have been a mystery to geologists for a long time. Sir Charles Lyell dwelt upon their peculiar configuration. In one passage he says: "The circular or oval forms of the numerous coral isles of the Pacific, with the lagoons in their centre, naturally suggest the idea that they are nothing more than the crests of submarine volcanoes, having the ruins and bottoms of their craters overgrown by coral. Thjs ...

Says Lyell, of Elie de Beaumont's Parallelism theory: "The principal chain of the Alps, differing in age and direction from the Pyrenees, is parallel to the Sierra Morena, the Balkans, the chain of Mount Atlas, the Central Chain of the Caucasus, and the Himalaya. All these ridges, therefore, are assumed to have been ...

... These new acquired traits, he assumed, were inheritable. Lamarck also taught uniformity, and thus he was an opponent of his contemporary, Cuvier, who taught catastrophism. Charles Darwin, generous to Alfred R. Wallace, whom he declared to be an independent discoverer of the theory of natural selection, never agreed, despite the admonitions of Lyell and Huxley, to acknowledge his debt to Lamarck; in a letter to Lyell he referred to Lamarck's book as "absurd" and "rubbish," and also as a "wretched book."4 However, Darwin offered the theory of pangenesis, according to which every cell in the body of an animal or plant sends a ...

... else they soon would have rotted. On the shores of the Bay of Fundy large areas of dried red and sandy mud, deposited by spring tides, are laid bare and, baking in the hot summer sun for ten days during neap tides, the upper part of the mud becomes consolidated for a depth of several inches. Sir Charles Lyell reports finding, on these mud surfaces, small cavities or pit marks caused by raindrops, footmarks where birds had walked, and other tracks. On splitting a sample slab of the hardened mud and reducing it in thickness, he found footprints made during several prior neap tides on the inferior layers: each made by birds at different times ...

46. Catastrophism and Evolution [Journals] [SIS Review]
... out the animals no longer found living on the Earth, but known from their fossilised remains. So catastrophism tended to become equated with unscientific creationism, particularly in view of Cuvier's belief that the catastrophes could not have been caused by any natural forces still in existence [17]. In response, the scientific community tended to unite behind Charles Lyell and his principle of uniformitarianism, i.e . that natural laws do not change [18]. Hence, if the presumed large-scale catastrophes could not be explained by any known processes, then there could not have been any large-scale catastrophes. All the findings in the rocks could be explained on the basis of known processes, provided ...

... globe, no action to be admitted except those of which we know the principle. In great error, Hutton viewed the Earth in isolation from the rest of the solar system. In this sense he was an Earth isolationist. He was not concerned with either astronomical data or with catastrophic heritages contained in ancient literatures. In the 1830's Charles Lyell popularized the dogma of Hutton. Lyell's, and Huxley's, popular "one-liner" became "The present is the key to the past." In his Principles of Geology Lyell attempted to define geology as the following: Principles of geology, being an attempt to explain the former changes of the earth's surface by reference to causes now in ...

... lands, near and about the poles, previous to the last glacial epoch, was as much the land of the living as it is now of the dead. But before I draw any definite conclusion as to the origin and cause of this great catastrophe we will still further examine into the nature and character of these remains. Sir Charles Lyell says : " In 1772, Pallas obtained from Wiljuiskoi in latitude 64, from the banks of the Wiljui, a tributary of the Lena, the carcass of a rhinoceros taken from the sand in which it must have remained congealed for ages, the soil of that region being always frozen to within a slight depth of the surface. ...

... . Early sections of the paper outline the way in which scientific thought in England, prior to the dawn of the 19th century, developed within constraints imposed by the established church, how and why ideas challenging prevailing dogma first arose in a geological context and the disparity which this created between perceptions of historical time and geological time. Here Charles Lyell is the dominant figure. Against that background later sections discuss the publication of Darwin's two epochal books, The Origin of Species (1859) and The Descent of Man (1871) and the concepts they contain. They also describe developments, principally in genetics, which led in the 1930s to neo-Darwinism' - an updating of the original ...

... Grinnell In 1950 there was a book published called the "Decline and Pall of Practically Everybody" and shortly thereafter the author himself declined and fell, and, as a matter of fact, I can't remember his name. 1950 was also the same year that Velikovsky published his "Worlds In Collision" in which practically everybody else fell: Lyell, Darwin, and Newton. I want to talk today about the fall of these great men because Western Civilization has been almost a continual battle between, on the one hand, our Judaic tradition and, on the other hand, the Greek tradition, In the 13th century, for instance, the Greek tradition seems to triumph, ...
