Uniformitarianism assumes that the same natural processes operated, but
not necessarily at the same rate. Circumstances such as heat and
pressure can affect the rate at which processes operate.
And assumptions like this one are constantly being tested. Unlike the
assumptions of those attacking uniformitarianism for religious reasons.
