Abstract:

Hypotheses in geomorphology may be conventional or unconventional. It is argued that outrageous hypotheses produced by conventional thinkers with a streak of unconventionality occasionally shift paradigms and are invaluable alternatives to conventional hypotheses, which tend merely to shore up seemingly safe and secure ruling paradigms.

Keywords: cranks; creationism; outrageous hypothesis; paradigm shifts; ruling theory
