371. A Life's Work? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... timbers in a Pennsylvania mine which was sealed to put out a fire were found to be coalified to the anthracite level when they were examined only ten years later. In the case of oil, radiocarbon dates often indicate ages of only a few thousand years and, as noted above, the observed geology of oilfields is hard to reconcile with uniformitarian thinking. Cook (p . 205) quotes Landes: "An extreme situation has been noted by Reed in the San Pedro and other oil fields of Argentina. There the only possible source rock is Devonian and the structure-forming movement which created the trap in which the oil is found did not take place until the Pleistocene .. . ...

Allen et al. 1986, $14 95 The story of the fight J H. Bretz had in the 1920s with the uniformitarian geology establishment, and how his theory that the Pacific Northwest showed unmistakable evidence of catastrophic flooding following the breaking of great ice dams was eventually vindicated.

... as adulterated turn out to be originals, extremely consistent with [his own reconstruction of history] makes us redate the old documents and does not at all deny their validity as true witnesses of the past. ' There remain the statistics and astronomy about which I am unable to comment. Observe, though, that Fomenko's calculations are based on uniformitarian principles. Bearing in mind the possible effects of change in earthly, lunar or planetary rotations or revolutions, or other changes in the skies, his reconstruction may even err on the side of caution. He observes, For a historian of the 20th century, the very thought that chronologists have followed an erroneous scheme for several hundred years ...

It is also the key to the future history of all these arenas of creation. .. .. it is only uniformitarian prejudice' that stands in the way of these catastrophic concepts' (p . 112).

... traditions. Yet this fails to explain the universal role of the planets in myth and even more so how the complex characteristics of these planets and their respective gods are so similar world wide and always associated with catastrophe. Cochrane's detailed assessment of the many faces of just one planet in myth pursues a radically new way forward in not making the uniformitarian assumption that explanations must be based upon our experiences of the present sky and earth. The challenge for readers who do not like the Saturn Theory will be to find an alternative scenario which explains the myths equally well. As this book appears to be only the tip of the iceberg of mythological considerations of just one planet then the task ...

Martian Year (New Scientist, 15.3 .03. p. 26; 23.8 .03. pp. 40-41; 6.9 .03. p. 16; 29.11.03. p. 12) 2003 was the year that Mars came the closest to Earth since 57,617 BC, if uniformitarian retrocalculation is viable, and several missions were launched which may bring future results. Meanwhile, Mars Global Surveyor has already revealed mysterious landforms which indicate that amazingly fast processes are taking place on the surface. It has changed considerably in the past few thousand years' but nobody knows why. It looks like glaciers are receding after an ice ...

... to live in the occident, and shines, a new one, in the orient. '" (59) The ancients were well aware of the roundness of the earth, something Moses would have learned as a boy attending Egyptian schools, and they were excellent and accurate astronomers. It is therefore puzzling- not to mention mystifying to uniformitarians who assume that nothing in the solar system has changed for millions of years- that the ceiling in the tomb of Hatshepsut's architect, Senmut, contains a panel showing the celestial sphere with the constellations and signs of the zodiac in what Alexander Pogo called "a reversed orientation." In other words, it is a mirror image- ...

I further suggest that not only does mythic and historical evidence point to this concept of a global flood but that the evidence of sediments laid down by such a deluge cannot be well accounted for by strictly uniformitarian processes without the addition of many ad hoc, hypothetical explanations.

... half-established knowledge, ignorance and speculation". So much do nearly all of the terms rest on subjective guesswork that he finds it necessary to reduce the estimate considerably. His answer: "We are alone." Sagan-haters should not, however, hold their breath for an English edition of the book. It is thoroughly based on current mainstream uniformitarian thinking; however, this is tempered with a vein of frankness. It is intriguing to learn, for instance, that the currently all-conquering "Big Bang" cosmology will not explain the observed ratio of material particles to photons, or the absence of anti-matter or even how (with the isotropic distribution of matter demanded by the theory) ...

Our member, Mr. Fisher, writes: "It is interesting to note that Velikovskian principles are allowed to operate and receive reasonably serious consideration providing they operate afar and do not impinge on our uniformitarian world!" We thank Mr. J. M. John Peet of Guildford for sending us a page from New Scientist dated 7th June 1979 (p .798) concerning a piece titled "An Iridium clue to the dinosaurs' demise".
