Michael Steinbacher: Catastrophist geology
The modern awareness that plasma composes most of the universe requires a reevaluation of theories dating from earlier times. Plasma is electrically active and employs forces that can be many times stronger than those of mechanical erosion and tectonics. One possible model envisions the globe enveloped in plasma discharges within the memory of humans. Material from space and from electrical erosion of the surface was suddenly sorted and deposited electrically to a great depth.
Dust, sand, gravel, rocks, boulders, coal, and oil accumulated wherever there was dry land. Red-hot dust blown by electrically generated tornado-like winds built up strata in place: “plastered” against obstructions in a manner similar to welded material. Flooding filled the valleys between the mountains with sediments. Where electrical activity was strong enough, the loose material was lithified and even metamorphosed. In this presentation, the Four Corners region in the US is presented as an example.

Exactly.. Catastrophic geology explained. I was taught all metamorphosed rock was was from deep in the earth uplifted but here it is so clear that it was deposited on top of existing rock.
And this localized deposition explains the unexplained 5 mile high Bahama platform of LIMESTONE. Perhaps the key to catastrophic geology is understand that the global events such as the flood are accompanied by localized magnetic spirals of deposition of wind-borne materials.
