Catastrophism is the idea that Earth has been affected in the past
by sudden, short-lived, violent events, possibly worldwide in
scope. The dominant paradigm of modern geology, in contrast, is
uniformitarianism (also sometimes described as gradualism), in
which slow incremental changes, such as erosion, create the Earth's
appearance. This view holds that the present is the key to the
past, and that all things continue as they were from the beginning
of the world. Recently a more inclusive and integrated view of
geologic events has developed, changing the scientific consensus to
accept some catastrophic events in the geologic past.
