1. A Catastrophic Reading of Western Cosmology [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review (1994) "Proceedings of the 1993 Cambridge Conference" Home¦ Issue Contents A Catastrophic Reading of Western Cosmology Irving Wolfe Département d'études anglaises, Université de Montréal Introduction In this second of a pair of articles, I will submit cosmology to the same kind of catastrophically-oriented bottom-line analysis as I performed on religion. This paper, therefore, will also be a thought experiment which will carry out a marketing analysis of the history of cosmic ideas in the West. Which were the major winners in the past 3000 years? What did each one sell? Why were they successful? And do they have anything in common? Using the working hypothesis established in the earlier paper (that huge natural catastrophes provoked by non-terrestrial objects have occurred on the Earth within the past three or four millennia and that they have left behind in our psyches enormous unconscious collective terrors which have to be continuously alleviated), I will interrogate the major cosmologies of our culture with three questions: 1. what is the underlying message of each winner? 2 ...
2. The Big Bang Never Happened [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1995 No 2 (June 1995) Home¦ Issue Contents The Big Bang Never Happened by Eric J. Lerner, Simon& Schuster Ltd., London 1992 ISBN 0-671-71100-8 (£ 10.99 net, 466 pages) This book is sub-titled: 'A Startling Refutation of the Dominant Theory of the Origin of the Universe'. It is both fascinating and frustrating- fascinating because it contains a lot of material relating to a theory of cosmology in which electromagnetic forces play a major role alongside gravity but frustrating because the author subordinates this material to playing a supporting role for his sociological and philosophical theories. (See end of review for an outline of these.) Lerner, who lives in the USA, is described as 'an independent researcher and writer and has published numerous articles on science and technology in many publications' (sic). Lerner mentions some particular sources that have been important to him for this book. He singles out Elaine Pagels' Adam, Eve and the Serpent and conversations with Hannes Alfven, Tony Peratt and ...

Writing eye-opening material in more than one arena, Arp takes on the corruption of good science in academia, government and publishing after giving us great material concerning red shift, the Big Bang, and cosmology.

4. The Search for Two Numbers [Thunderbolts Website]
... copyright: John Smith, Hidden Loft Observatory Oct 11, 2006 The Search for Two Numbers Astronomy's obsessive search for the two numbers --the Hubble Constant and the age of the universe --is based upon an unwarranted assumption, i.e., redshift equals distance. Alan Sandage, talking about Hubble/Humason's 1931 paper that first suggested there is a connection between redshift and distance of galaxies, said: "Judged by its subsequent influence, the paper by Hubble and Humason (1931) was one of the great, prescient early papers in observational cosmology. It outlined the central research trends that continued well beyond the middle third of the twentieth century. From 1929 until the discovery of the of the Alpher-Herman microwave background in 1965 this was the field of "practical cosmology" which was once described as "simply the search for two numbers" in contrast to the wondrous new theoretical cosmology of today that combines high-energy particle physics with theories of the very hot early universe." The highway to modern cosmology began in the mid-1920's, also as a result of Hubble's work. Other ...
5. Mysteries of the Sacred Universe [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2002:1 (Sep 2002) Home¦ Issue Contents Mysteries of the Sacred Universe www.sacreduniverse.com From the flat earth to the sun's chariot, traditional spiritual texts often seem wedded to outmoded cosmologies that show, at best, the scientific limitations of their authors. The Bhagavata Purana, one of the classical scriptures of Hinduism, seems, at first glance, to be no exception. However, a closer examination of this text reveals unexpected depths of knowledge in ancient cosmology. Mysteries of the Sacred Universe shows that the cosmology of the Bhagavata Purana is a sophisticated system, with multiple levels of meaning that encode at least four different astronomical, geographical, and spiritual world models. By viewing the text in the light of modern astronomy, Richard Thompson shows how ancient scientists expressed exact knowledge in apparently mythological terms. Comparison with the ancient traditions of Egypt and the Near East shows early cultural connections between India and these regions-- including a surprisingly advanced science. However, quantitative science is only part of the picture. Mysteries of the Sacred ...
6. A New Cosmology [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 124: Jul-Aug 1999 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects A New Cosmology In the April 1999 issue of Physics Today-- certainly a mainstream publication, but occasionally daring-- we find a long, technically deep article outlining a new cosmology that jettisons the Big Bang and even redshifts as infallible measures of cosmological distances. It should come as no surprise that the authors are G. Burbidge, F. Hoyle, and J.V. Narlikar. They propose a quasi-steady-state universe to replace the hot Big Bang. It is easy to itemize narrow, specific problems bedeviling the Big Bang, but the three "boat-rockers" listed above also have an important philosophical bone to pick with modern astronomers and cosmologists. "The theory departs increasingly from known physics, until ultimately the energy source of the universe is put in as an initial condition, the energy supposedly coming from somewhere else. Because that "somewhere else" can have any properties that suit the theoretician, supporters of Big Bang ...
7. The “Science” of the Big Bang [Thunderbolts Website]
... ) compared to the 2.73 Kelvin average temperature of the radiation field. Credit: NASA Aug 23, 2006 The “Science” of the Big Bang Astronomer Halton Arp has called it“ science by news release ,” and some of the most disturbing examples come from statements “confirming” the validity of the Big Bang. Many critics of modern theories in the sciences have noticed that science editors (newspaper, magazine, and television) appear to have lost the ability to separate fact from theory. When discussing the trademarks of popular cosmology, such as the Big Bang, the science media incessantly report that new discoveries confirm them — even when such reports are far from the truth. One reason for this pattern is simply the momentum of archaic beliefs. But it is also apparent that good news is essential to the funding of exotic projects. At the heart of conventional cosmology lies the dogma of an electrically neutral universe governed by gravity alone. Without the benefit of this dogma, the Big Bang hypothesis could never have achieved its present prominence. And it is ...

Employing Electro-Gravitic Theory, Charles Ginenthal maintains that celestial bodies exhibit systematic behavior not explained by traditional theory. This theory posits the concept that electromagnetism is a counter force to gravity which can be fully tested in space. This cosmological theory challenges nearly all the established explanations for the birth, evolution, and death ...

... home updates news and views picture of the day resources team a role for you contact us book preview The Electric Sky By Donald Scott A retired professor of Electrical Engineering, Dr. Scott has produced 256 pages of compelling material on the Electric Universe and plasma cosmology. His insights, punctuated by a delightful sense of humor, destroy the sensational and fantastical constructs of "gravity only" cosmology, replacing them with lucid and down-to-earth explanations of space age findings. From start to finish, the book is grounded in a practical understanding of electric currents in plasma. Dr Scott systematically unravels the myths of “Big Bang” cosmology, and he does so without resorting to black holes, dark matter, dark energy, neutron stars, magnetic “reconnection”, or any other fictions needed to prop up a failed theory. The book contains sensible science for the experts. It is also an exceptional primer for general readers, highlighting the latest developments in plasma science and astronomy. Chapters in the book include a historical overview, an in-depth exploration of the electric sun ...
10. The Electro-Gravitic Theory of Celestial Motion & Cosmology, by Charles Ginenthal [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 2001:1 (Apr 2001) Home¦ Issue Contents The Electro-Gravitic Theory of Celestial Motion& Cosmology by Charles Ginenthal Vol IV of The Velikovskian, New York (hardback, 154 pp., ISBN No. 0-9639759-0-3). Available from the author at 65-35 108th Street, Forest Hills, NY 11375, USA, $20US, money orders payable to a US bank) Reviewed by Eric Crew Judging by the number of references to the scientific literature listed (278 in 132 pages of text- an average of 2 1/page) Charles Ginenthal has read more astronomy than most professional astronomers, who tend to concentrate on restricted fields. The list of contents include the origin and evolution of stars, galaxies and the solar system; entropy and an appendix of measurements and mathematics. In his last pages, he describes the Electro-Gravitic theory as monumental heresy, a totally new weltanschauung that, if valid, overthrows the world view of cosmology, following the view of Immanuel Velikovsky that electromagnetism must play a role in celestial ...
