... orbital variations, then prove the variations by the climate changes! She further notes that all the new "evidence" is, in fact, the outcome of computer models and is therefore dependent on the assumptions of the programmers. If catastrophism seems to be making little headway nowadays it is because this is what we are up against: the uniformitarian programmed computer versus the unfunded amateur. A New Model for Crustal Deformation source: Open Earth No. 17, 1982-B, pp. 30-2 Not all geologists are unquestioning followers of the current dogma of plate tectonics. Peter M. James, an Australian engineering geologist, points out the weakness of a theory which relies on entirely hypothetical convection ...

... fully, ought to settle once and for all the problem of whether the Earth has been shaken by global convulsions in the past. It will, moreover, settle it more conclusively than any amount of data from space probes and moon landings. Again, until this test is carried out, I would suggest that it is impossible for a uniformitarian to maintain that such catastrophe's have not occurred, since the evidence concerned has not been collected. Absence of physical evidence for global catastrophes is not evidence for absence of them. The tests I suggest here involve the use of C-14 (radiocarbon) dates in a manner that has so far not been widely applied, though I have already ...

... ' which involved the replacement of reported cometary catastrophes by the regular motions of the irrelevant planets [18]. The philosophers themselves may have been honestly mistaken, but "a privileged few, committed only to neutral gods, manipulated the machinery of government and Academe behind the scenes" [19]. The notion of a mistaken commitment to uniformitarianism is thematic in Velikovsky [20] and the idea that the process began in the classical period is his too [21]. Clube and Napier evoke a different mechanism from Velikovsky's collective amnesia', but one which is broached in Velikovsky's opus [22]. Such theories, however, suffer from the fatal flaw of explaining too ...

Perhaps .. . the present chapter...will help clarify the issues." 20 This remark on the face is stunning, given the evidence thus far. Fractions- calendars To reinforce his evidence on the unaltered uniformitarian state of the calendar in the past, Sagan adds, "There is an alternative explanation, which derives from the fact that there are not a whole number of lunations in a solar year, nor a whole number of days in a lunation. These incommensurabilities will be galling to a culture that had recently invented arithmetic but had not ...

... , be corroborated. The prediction is quite unambiguous. There should exist in some cases terrestrial planets both inside and outside gas giant planets orbiting other stars (not in all, but in some cases). The theory presented suggests that all solar systems have a long and varied history and that they were not formed at one time, as uniformitarian astronomy claims. Planets of various sizes and orbits once existed in the solar system, and its present arrangement is the final outcome of the last capture, collision and fission event. Since other gas giant planets are being created in the Milky Way, it is possible that, in time, one or a binary of two of these ...

... hours, the rate is halved, and over several more hours, it's quartered, and so on. And physicists and chemists have both worked on these short-lived radioactive atoms and found that there is no way in which they can disturb the process of their decay, and so they presume that the same thing applies to uranium. That's the uniformitarian assumption upon which radioactive decay is analysed: that there is no way it can be interfered with by anything which goes on in the environment, that there was a certain amount of uranium in the beginning, and it's been breaking down ever since, and the products of this breakdown have been breaking down ever since, and eventually lead ...

... the same with energy. We feel a heat in some measure and then extend its measures to degrees of cold and heat that are astronomical. But these extremes are also mechanical extensions of ourselves. In both time and energy measurements, therefore, we are working within realms of the human that are extended into the inhuman. Both catastrophists and uniformitarians are human, feeling time and heat; both are working with inhuman extremities. Each looks at a range of "mountain": the one says that it was raised in years by unimaginable forces, the other that it was raised unimaginable millions of years ago. It should be possible to say who is correct. Although both are ...

Kebara man had a different pelvic shape to modern man, which means he walked differently, but there is no evidence for the young having been bigger brained at birth, as was previously thought. Catastrophe Point in Climatology source: New Scientist 26.11.87, pp.30-31 Climatology is one of the bastions of uniformitarian science: its scientists have calculated, for instance, that extrapolating from present day models, major changes in Earth's orbit would be incompatible with life on Earth. This was a point strongly made by John Fermor in his talk in 1979 (SIS Review IV:2 /3 , p.40). Now climatologists are beginning to ...

A case in point is the Japanese reaction to the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki; the survivors produced no " ...

... not even to investigate in a reputable manner the very possibility that "something might be down there". As the weight of evidence continues to build up, we are now beginning to see another familiar defensive reaction that has been employed against Velikovsky. The effects of the earlier, successful exorcism of heretical concepts "damned" beyond the accepted uniformitarian, Darwinian, and materialistic framework wear off, and attempts to repeat the spell prove less successful (though the sensationalism of the Rines photographs in Nov. 1975 shows that the practitioners of the old magic can still hurl mighty spells, as Velikovsky found out in the Jan. 1974 AAAS set-up job to discredit him).
