Catastrophism

The essence of the theory of consecutive creations, or catastrophism that originated in France in the 1800s is that the Earth has previously suffered a series of catastrophic events, each of which destroyed the existing life, thereby giving another form of life a chance to develop. If we consider this theory to have some merit, then it carries strong implications that there will be another series of catastrophic events on the Earth soon, if it’s not already happening. This idea that’s quite similar to “The Butterfly Effect” theory predates the theory of evolution, which is not on this list.
