41. The Science of Catastrophism [Articles]
... , what different concepts have been developed (and there are many) to account for the wealth of data (and there is much) which seems to indicate that, at more than one time in the geologically recent past, immense earthly catastrophes did occur. From the evidence, it seems that at different times the Earth was seared and scarred and rent and overturned, and the sky was filled with darkness and light, blazing heat and choking dust, rains of fire and overwhelming thunder, unstoppable, unpredictable and colossal. We who are catastrophists believe three general things: that events like these did probably occur, that our ancestors saw, remembered and recorded them in myth, ...

... especially well in aerial photographs. Any theory as to their origin must explain their form, the ellipticity of which increases with the size of the bays; their parallel alignment; and the elevated rims at their southeastern ends. In 1933 a theory was presented by Melton and Schriever of the University of Oklahoma, according to which the bays are scars left by a "meteoric shower or colliding comet."2 Since then the majority of the authors who have dealt with the problem have accepted this view, and it has found its way into textbooks as the usual interpretation.3 The authors of the theory stress the fact that, "Since the origin of the bays apparently cannot ...

45. Encounters and Collisions [Books] [de Grazia books]
... He assumes five billion years of uniform falls and applies weathering rates for the continental masses from wind, tide and vegetative erosion, ending up with somewhat over a thousand craters that are potentially identifiable. Of this thousand, 750 are below water and ice; of the remaining 250, "in the last few years a staccato tally of meteorite scar finds or recognitions has raised the total to 42-50 at this writing." He offered an independent survival rate calculated by Krynine that would be in the neighborhood of 10,000. He pointed also to new diagnostic methods, such as the discovery of coesite, a silica mineral that forms under high pressures in the laboratory and has been ...
46. The Yuty Crater on Mars [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... to be an example of interpretation reflecting a dubious dogma, and facts being doctored to fit it. The present meteorites appear to have originated some 520 MY ago in the break-up of a planetary body or bodies between Mars and Jupiter (Hindley, 1975). Of course, some of them have hit the various planets and left a few scars on them- mostly small, of which the terrestrial astroblemes of relevant age (and the authenticity of these is often in doubt) are a fair example. Yet most crateriforrn features long antedate this period and are supposed to have been formed four or so aeons ago by planetesimal impacts, which have been preserved for the convenience of cosmogonists ...

Chaos monsters are destroyed by lightning. #20: Lightning leaves its mark on celestial heroes and chaos monsters, who are "lightning scarred," or "thunderstruck." #21: The lightning-scar or wound of the warrior-hero is the mark by which he is identified or recognized. [. .] Weapon of Planetary Gods: There is one more lightning motif that must be mentioned. This theme is perhaps the most enigmatic of all, and it traces to the ...

... of the Solar System" at McMaster University. Michelson has indicated that when electromagnetic effects are taken into account, the orbital-decay process is enormously accelerated. Cratering Peculiarities 4) Professor Sagan argues that if the moon were extensively cratered as recently as 2700 years ago, the same would have happened to the earth- but the earth shows no such recent scarring; that while one-third of the surface of Mars is covered with craters, the remainder is marked only by signs of tectonic activity, indicative of a long history of cosmic peace for that planet; and that Venus also is heavily cratered and must therefore be of great antiquity. The overall picture is inconsistent with the idea of recent catastrophic ...
