401. Apophoreta 2 [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... it possible to get a carbon-14 date on the deposit, giving an age of about 10,770 years before the present. This fits all over Europe and correlates remarkably with the Two Creeks horizon of the same kind around the Great Lakes in North America." Neither Emiliani et al nor Ager specify why they adopted a more conventional (uniformitarian) hypothesis in preference to a catastrophist one which assumes a very short episode of high temperature and a universal conflagration. The fact that I stumble over such passages without looking for them makes me wonder whether many more possible indications of fiery conflagrations in the geologically recent past are being explained away in the conventional literature? What if we started ...

... is one of destruction at once widely spread and total, so far as it extended (. .) . By what quiet but potent agency of destruction were the innumerable existences of an area perhaps ten thousand square miles in extent annihilated at once, and yet the medium in which they had lived left undisturbed in its operations?" Latter-day uniformitarians tend to explain the radioactive anomalies by differential adsorption of radioactive elements posterior to deposition. Conceivably this will bear out to be correct, but it could be only a partial explanation. Has any study been undertaken to find out whether high radioactivity in fossil bones correlates with the great faunal breaks of the Earth's history? Johan Kloosterman References: ...

404. The Rise and Fall of the Third Chimpanzee [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... candidates, but Diamond does come a cropper when he mentions the Greek Dark Ages. He fails to see that all his other examples reach a nadir and never resurrect. However, it is as a first rate biologist that he excells and it is very difficult to fault his arguments in that line. The book is only marred by its uniformitarian flavour which does not allow of much in the way of external catastrophe to have shaped our history, not even the odd earthquake or two. Diamond attempts to be optimistic about the future of mankind in his final two pages but the threat of a traumatised desire to relive cosmic catastrophe, as envisaged by Velikovsky, seems to me to ...

... the geologists are starting to realize. This tsunami and other consequences of the cataclysm caused the death, sudden or not, of some 70% of the major species of great mammals that once roved the earth. The reality of the Flood was consensually accepted by the naturalists of the past century. But Darwin and Lyell introduced the concept of Uniformitarianism (negation of cataclysms), which became the present paradigm of geological science. However, the better paleontologists and geologists are fast returning towards the ancient view, which is not only Sacred History, but Reality itself, as we found out in our researches on the matter. Q20: Is there a connection between Atlantis and the Great ...

... a huge range of sources to establish that the world's great myths have a common origin, that the places referred to in the myths are not on earth but in the heavens, and that the actions therein are those of celestial bodies. They conclude that myth was a language for passing on a vast and complex body of astronomical knowledge. Uniformitarian assumptions severely limit the authors' interpretations, but the wealth of information they have presented is of great value". Hamlet's Mill has also been discussed in Aeon Vol 2:1 "Discussion & Comments From the Floor: Hamlet's Polar Mill" by Dwardu Cardona; Aeon Vol 4:2 "Samson Revealed" by Ev Cochrane; ...

... biological puzzles. Most of Howorth's attention, however, is focussed on the mammoths and their recent demise. This book is one of the classics of catastrophe literature. Evolutionary Geology and the New Catastrophism by G.M . Price. 1926, 352 pp., $18.95p. Price was an early catastrophist at a time when uniformitarianism ruled with an iron fist. He systematically and rationally presented some of geology's major anomalies- particularly in stratigraphy. Chapter titles include: The Modern Onion-Coat Theory; "Deceptive Conformity"; Upside Down; Extinct Species; Skipping; Graveyards; Degeneration; Fossil Men. Price was a creationist, but his book is devoid of theology. ...

Or, could it be that the physics involved does not preclude the suggestions of Cameron - OR Velikovsky? It would appear that the actual perpetuators and perpetrators of fraud are the protectors of uniformitarian dogma. * This Work was sponsored by Cosmos and Chronos, a non-profit corporation interested in research related to the ideas originally presented by Immanuel Velikovsky. \cdrom\pubs\journals\kronos\vol0103\047lunar.htm ...

410. Quantalism: The Big Picture [Journals] [Aeon]
... therefore take Victor Clube as representative of all three subtypes of non planetary catastrophism. [7 ] In terms of the preceding distinctions, some of which cross-cut one another, Velikovsky may be classified as a planetary caenocatastrophist. Recognizing, then, that catastrophism has many varieties, I am nonetheless dissatisfied with the term catastrophism as a blanket antonym to uniformitarianism (or uniformism, for short). For uniformism itself has at least two major conceptual components: gradualism and actualism. Gradualism is probably best represented by Charles Darwin's geological mentor, Charles Lyell. Actualism is perhaps best represented by Lyell's older contemporary, the German geologist Leopold von Buch. [8 ] Catastrophism, as I understand the ...
