What theory succeeded Plutonism?[edit]

Would it be worth adding which theory (or theories) came after Plutonism? Right now the article says that after the 19th century, "the plutonist views on the origin of rocks prevailed" but it's listed under Obsolete Scientific Theories which seems to contradict that. 65.34.87.245 (talk) 19:28, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

I found a sentence on the article for Neptunism that answers your question, more or less, and added it here. Unfortunately, there was no source cited, but it seems pretty reasonable. ubiquity (talk) 19:40, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
