I've been thinking about the gneiss dilemma. Perhaps it was only a misunderstanding - an example of how science can be so easily misunderstood. Yes gneiss is made from igneous rocks - granite normally. However fundamental to understanding rocks is the way it was formed. All igneous rocks are solidified directly our of molten rock. When granite is subjected to heat and pressure it produces gneiss.
