Channeled Scablands: Scientific Bias Against Catastrophism Related Articles. Only One Lake Missoula Flood by Michael J. Oard; Evidence of the Flood in Franklin County by Gerald Durr; Prior to the 19th century, most geologists were catastrophists who believed that the earth's fossiliferous rock was the result of the Biblical global flood.

    Adam Smith is a graduate cum laude of the University of Arizona, where he studied journalism and German. Born and raised in New England, he lives on Cape Cod. Though his first novel, SCABLAND, has placed as a Finalist in literary competitions, he regards being accepted into Dennis Lehane's novel-writing workshop at Writers In Paradise as one of /5.   Perhaps the most well-known triumph of catastrophic thinking over strict uniformity is that of Dr. J. Harlen Bretz and the “channeled scablands.” Beginning in the s, Bretz studied the deep gorges of eastern Washington. He noted they were cut into hard basaltic rock and oriented in the same general direction. Small streams entering the gorges cascade over essentially dry waterfalls.
