Donald Patten relies heavily on Velikovsky's information to arrive at an interesting thesis. The idea of an astral visitor that depositied ice at the poles and creating the two major mountain chains (Pyrenees to Pilipines, Terra del Fuego to Japan) expands immensely upon a theme that V. first suggested. His explanation of the "cave men", although possible, isn't germane to his subject. The analysis of our current malaise in the scientific realm stemming from Hubbard, Lyell, Darwin, and others of that era explains how faulty, unchristian, and agenda-driven their "ideas" really were. Highly recommended. I can't embrace totally his mountain building concepts, but recognize the strength of his arguments.

This book is a must read for anyone that is interested in the Biblilcal flood and it effect on the earth's geological structure. He presents the evidence for astromomical catastrophism and its effect on the earth. New theories on mountain building and the ice ages are put forth. He continues where other deluge writers have left off. An excellent easy to understand book supporting the Biblical flood and refuting the uniformitarian theory of modern geology.

Science is back! This book intrigued me, and the arguments within are solid and backed up with facts ranging from ancient writings to geological surveys. I think you can tell a well researched book by how many footnotes it has. With this book, many of the footnotes sometimes fill an entire page or two just to explain a fact or idea. With a universe in constant motion, it is unbeleivable that catastrophism has been thrown out of academic science for over a century. With asteroids and unknown blasts in Siberia (antimatter?), it bothers me that "oceans of time" are required for the Rockies, Alps, etc. to rise to their towering dominance when events such as a comet permanently scarring Jupiter with massive spots after its break-up and collision only a few years ago, occur readily. The models, graphs, and figures within theis book, as well as the text itself are fully explained and understandable. It is a science book, however; so you will need to think about the ideas presented in this book, and really try to understand what the author is describing. The research that went into this book really scales, as it took a research team five years to find it all. The book is completely thourough, and leaves no loose ends, and leaves you no question about where Patten stands on matters within the book. Patten goes further into questioning the thinking behind the theories of Darwin, and also questions his motives, as he had really no scientific authority, yet his ideas swept the scientific community without much scrutiny, even to this day. You will not find very many books that challenge such theories of evolution, uniformatarianism, and Darwin, so enjoy this one. An absolutly marvelous work by a great scientist who looks for facts and evidences beyond those used by many researchers, geologists, and biologists today, before conjuring up theroies that are weak and questionable. Well done, Mr. Patten!

This is a well put together scholarly work. It was copyrighted a year after I was born but still has the potential to revolutionize science. It might push humanity to rise above the evolutionary dogma choking out honest scholarship in the Non-pure sciences of Paleontology, Geology, Evolutionary Biology, and others. There is no other way to describe the author but brilliant.

Format: Hardcover
The author writes at a 1967 educated-person level. Consequently I (with only a 1984 BFA) found it fascinating but be forewarned: it's dense stuff.

I could read 6 to 10 pages a night and then I'd have to stop and think about what he'd proposed. Donald Patten postulates answers to questions most people haven't even thought to ask, and backs his theories up with more sound, established, scientifically proven facts than any other theory out there. Is he right? I still don't know, but it's worth looking into and considering, if only to clear the cobwebs out of little-used portions of your thinking machinery. Enjoy the exercise!

This is the 1st Patten book I read on geological analysis of the oral global flood traditions. His thesis on ice age development is also quite intriguing. The core science of his thesis is that catastrophic astroidal/planetary events could have easily caused the global flood and ice age era. This runs directly in contradiction to mainstream science which would stay with long age events causing earth history change. What provides credible belief to Patten's theories are the numerous scientific presentations of evidence. My own field work with fossil evidence, geological deposits, and volcanic debris would support his thesis presentations. When I apply his theory time models to the actual field evidence, it is easily believable that current earth history for the outer crust is a matter of some 10,000 to 15,000 years old instead of millions of years.

Wow, in 1966 the research showed how impossible it is for humans to control climate change. Pollution, definitely, but not climate change. Also, research in 1991 backed up these findings. Anyone who believes that buying electric cars, etc. is helping the climate is a fool; they are only lining Al Gore's pocket, and the other did-heads like him. Well, maybe they are not so stupid after all. They are raking in the cash.
