Skip to comments.Darwin Was Wrong About Geology
Posted on 12/02/2009 7:13:55 PM PST by GodGunsGuts
Dec 2, 2009 Field geologists have revisited a site Darwin visited on the voyage of the Beagle, and found that he incorrectly interpreted what he found. A large field of erratic boulders in Tierra del Fuego that have become known as Darwins Boulders were deposited by a completely different process than he thought. The modern team, publishing in the Geological Society of Americas December issue of the GSA Today,1 noted that Darwins thinking was profoundly influenced by Lyells obsession with large-scale, slow, vertical movements of the crust, especially as manifested in his theory of submergence and ice rafting to explain drift. Lyell, in turn, felt vindicated: Lyell celebrated these observations because they supported his idea of uniformitarianismthat continued small changes, as witnessed in the field, could account for dramatic changes of Earths surface over geologic time. In this case, though, a more rapid phenomenon provides a better explanation for the observations...

==As usual, you have no clue of what you are talking about.
As usual, you have accused someone else of what you yourself are guilty of. The rest is ignored because, as usual, you didn’t write anything worth responding to. But if you ever get around to making specific arguments, I would be glad to engage your easily falsified evo-religion any time you are feeling up to the challenge.
“So because Darwin misinterpreted a geomorphological process, you want to throw out the last 150 years of biological science?”
Your question amuses me. Your 150 years of “biological science” is no more sound in it’s conclusions than those of the global warming Nazi’s. Hide the data, folks... Darwin-Gate is only a hacker away.
Wait. That’s not right. The lack of evidence for Evolution screams louder and is much more far-reaching than a few emails belonging to a gaggle of stilted climatologists.
Actually, we have some of Darwin’s private thoughts have been hacked, so to speak. They come in the form of his recently released notebooks, and it is clear that, among other things, he had theological reasons for inventing his evo-atheist creation myth.
Don’t ever post profanity in Keywords again.
Just because it happened a long time ago, doesn’t mean it took a long time to happen.

Not at all. A global flood could produce drastic changes in the surface of the earth.
Funny you should say that... I’m working on my Theory of Darwin right now that explores just that. The premise is that Darwin, just like the rest of Atheists had to believe in Evolution so that the whole thing would make sense.
The teaser has been this... “I have a theory about how Darwin evolved... regrettably, the theory itself is evolving and may take millions of years to post.”
If you have supporting documentation I’d love to see it. I’m still on the Dinosaurs right now, which is the jump-off point for the rest of the article.
Your premise is patently false. Darwin was not an atheist.
I love a daily dose of GGG.
Why thank you rae4palin :o)
“Your premise is patently false. Darwin was not an atheist.”
And your premise is uneducated at best. Absolutely he was... not that I’m going to get into an argument with someone who hasn’t taken the time to study Darwin to his conclusion. Darwin’s earlier statements concerning God and faith, by his own admission were measured by his sensitivity to his family, friends and society. The man didn’t believe in God (at some point early on he stopped believing) but in those earlier years he was worried about hurting his family and his credibility so he didn’t fully disclose that fact. I didn’t say he lacked any nobility, but he was an Atheist.
Thanks for the ping!
“You mean, makes sense to them.”
Absolutely correct. It’s like when folks say Obama is a good speaker but all I see is a ferret in a bad pin-striped suit talking out of both sides of his yapper... about that silly.
I am going to have to disagree with you there, Gordon. Darwin gave up on organized religion and Christianity after many years of abuse at the hands of the clergy for daring to publish a theory that did not conform with church teaching. He did not give up on God. Darwin cited and referred to a Creator on many occasions.
