“…in all the sciences except geology, facts and theories are kept separate and distinct in all textbooks to be used by students in academies and colleges… But in geology, facts and theories are still inextricably commingled; and in the ordinary college textbooks of science, the most absurd and fantastic speculations are still taught to the students with all the solemnity and pompous importance which might be allowable in speaking of the facts of chemistry or physics….only geology has developed much more slowly than some of the other sciences, and has not yet escaped from the period of a priori methods and metaphysical speculation.” –G. McC. Price in his textbook The New Geology (1923).
Things haven’t changed. In 2016, the science-theory blend (What can we call such a thing?) remains firmly imbedded in the studies of geology. The problem stems from the intimate attachment of the evolutionary hypothesis (which is only a ‘theory’ in the minds of those who see it as plausible) and its imposition of deep-time ages upon an otherwise legitimate and highly interesting field of study. Evolution is a hypothesis which has yet to prove itself in the real world of geology: the rocks. Deep-time (so necessary to uphold the evolutionary concept) becomes, as they themselves say, the miracle-worker of life. Evolutionism has ever attempted to legitimize itself, not excluding by use of a mask of science. Deep-time geology exists because evolution demands it; and evolution is ‘true,’ not because of any evidence from the fossil record, but because of the proposed geological ages. This is known as circular reasoning, which does nothing to establish the facts of reality. But we must admit that at least in one sense deep-time has been around for a great while… Once Upon a Time Longgg Longgg ago, in Place called Never-never Land… Fairytales still exist.
