The Boneyards: Excerpts from "Earth in Upheaval", by Velikovsky

"And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark". Genesis 7

"The great problem for geological theories to explain is that amazing phenomenon, the mingling of the remains of animals of different species and climates, discovered in exhaustless quantities in the interior parts of the earth so that the exuviae of those genera which no longer exist at all, are found confusedly mixed together in the soils of the most northerly latitudes. . . . The bones of those animals which can live only in the torrid zone are buried in the frozen soil of the polar regions.

And to quote one more contemporary, George Fairholme, who described similar evidence in Italy from the Arno River Valley:

In this sandy matrix bones were found at every depth from that of a few feet to a hundred feet or more. From the large and more apparent bones of the elephant, the rhinoceros, the megatherium, the elk, the buffalo, the stag, and so forth, naturalists were led by the elaborate studies of Cuvier and other comparative anatomists to the remains of the now living bear, tiger, wolf, hyena, rabbit, and finally the more minute remains even of the water rat and the mouse.

In some places so complete was the confusion . . . that the bones of many different elephants were brought into contact, and on some of them even oyster shells were matted"...... Catastrophe and Reconstitution Doorway Papers, by Arthur Custance.   

 Immanuel Velikovsky is known as the "father" of catastrophism. In 1955 he wrote "Earth in Upheaval", using known but suppressed scientific data to make the case that the world had gone through universal "upheaval" instead of the gradualism and uniformism which is still the scientific paradigm, today.

Those looking at the history and geography of the earth usually fall into either the uniformism camp or the catastrophism camp. If you believe in the great flood of Noah, you believe that the history and geology of the world has included catastrophic occurances. Darwinists generally believe that the earth has a uniform history and that its' geology can be explained by a gradual, uniform build-up of sediments over eons of time.

"Experts had dismissed his previous works Worlds in Collision and Ages of Chaos as un-scientific. In response Velikovsky produced this landmark book about global catastrophes. It is pure, fully referenced, fact.

Anyone who reads this will probably dismiss the uniformatarian views of most scientists today, and embrace the more believable cataclysm theories....From a Review of the book.

Following are some interesting excerpts from the 1955 book in which Velikovsky uses science against "science".
