Abstract

This chapter tracks the fascinating and unexpected changes of fortune which have attended the scientific notion of uniformitarianism since its emergence in the early nineteenth century at the hands of geologists such as Sir Charles Lyell. The key role played in this narrative by Price is noted and the changing manner in which this story has been told by Adventist and other recent creationist authors is described.
