... Vol. IV, No. 2. (1998): Metamorphic Evolution, Charles Ginenthal; Shattering the Myths of Darwinism, by Richard Milton; Reviewed by Roger W. Wescott; The Relevance of the Velikovksy Scenario to the Homeric Question, Hugo Meynell; Reviewing Velikovsky's Venus and Mars Theories, Donald W. Patten; A Tale of Two Venuses, C. Ginenthal; A Victory for Mars, Lynn E. Rose. Vol. IV, No. 3. (1999): The Electro-Gravitic Theory of Celestial Motion& Cosmology (A Special Issue of The Velikovskian, by Charles Ginenthal) Hard cover, 154pp, ISBN 0-9639759-0-3. Electro-Gravitic Theory of Celestial Motion& Cosmology presents a revolutionary explanation of celestial motion which challenges Albert Einstein's theory of General Relativity and Isaac Newton's view that gravity and intertia are the only forces which generate celestial motion. 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. ...

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. The book Seeing Red can be ordered via the link.

It began with an assumption now proven false by the image above, and it must begin again from its source in empiricism and flow in another direction. All that's counted ...
13. Thoth Vol. VI, No 3 May 31, 2002 [Thoth Website]
... ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** A YOUNG AMATEUR EXAMINES CRACKPOTTERY IN SCIENCE By Jason Goodman [ed. note: Jason Goodman shares his research on his website at http://www.geocities.com/kingvegeta80/cosmology.html.I am an amateur astronomer in my early 20's. About a year ago, I read "The Big Bang Never Happened" by Eric Lerner. This sparked my interest in alternate concepts, especially plasma cosmology, non- recessional redshifts, and catastrophism. I tried discussing these ideas at several different message boards online. In most cases, I was met not by scientific discussion or even logical refutation, but by base insults. In the November and December 2001, issues of "Scientific American," Skeptic Society Director Michael Shermer gives a recipe for identifying pseudoscientific crackpot ideas. He calls it a ten-step "baloney detection kit." I've summarized it here and added my own comments (JG). "1. How reliable ...
14. Mons Veneris [Aeon Journal $]
... the critic or catastrophist researcher. This new evidence-- descriptions of the ancient sun-god's epiphany and its attendance by various planets-- bears all the earmarks of being objective in nature. Depictions of the daily cycle of the sun can be found amongst the ancient art and literature from the Old and New World alike. Our discussion here will focus upon the literature and art from the ancient Near East and, while necessarily technical in nature, it is hoped that it will serve as a launching pad for a radical reinterpretation of ancient cosmology in general. (Fig. 1) Cylinder seal impression showing Shamash rising over the twin-peaked mountain. Simply stated, it can be shown that descriptions of the celestial whereabouts and stereotypical behavior of the ancient sun-god (Utu, Shamash), Venus (Inanna, Ishtar), and Mars (Nergal), show the respective celestial bodies in positions which are impossible given the current arrangement of the Solar System. Such anomalies have long posed problems of interpretation for translators of the ancient texts, the latter of whom frequently resort to ...
15. synopsis [Thunderbolts Website]
... way of seeing the physical universe is emerging. The new vantage point emphasizes the role of electricity in space and shows the negligible contribution of gravity in cosmic events. Images returned by high-powered telescopes and recent space probes have challenged astronomers ’ long-standing assumptions about galaxies and their constituent stars, about the evolution of our solar system, and about the nature and history of Earth. The new discoveries also suggest that our early ancestors may have witnessed awe inspiring electrical events in the heavens — the source of myths and symbols around the world. Cosmology Today, we are seeing things in space that were never imagined. We detect magnetic fields everywhere, even in the “empty” depths of intergalactic space. Magnetic fields cannot exist without causative electric currents. The naked electric force is 39 orders of magnitude (a thousand billion billion billion billion times) stronger than gravity. The visible universe is constituted almost entirely of electrically active plasma. In the twentieth century the pioneers of plasma science inspired a new school of investigation called plasma cosmology. Plasma cosmologists suggest that electricity is the ...

Unfortunately, the Quasi-Steady-State-Cosmology (QSSC), which they propose as an alternative, is based on the same faulty assumption as the big bang --that redshift can be used as a measure of distance. They devote one section of their book to quasars as the exception to that rule. This section covers the observational evidence that quasars are found together with active galaxies in spite of their redshift incompatibility. The last chapter of the book is most fascinating to a pioneering astronomer. Here they discuss three major issues that standard cosmology has never explained quantitatively. In simpler words, the math doesn't match what the observations demand. The first problem is ...
18. Astrophysicist Finds New Scientific Meaning in Hamlet [SIS Internet Digest $]
... Astrophysicist Finds New Scientific Meaning in Hamlet January 13, 1997. A paper read today at the American Astronomical Society meeting in Toronto, Canada, offers a new interpretation of Shakespeare's play Hamlet. The paper, by Peter D. Usher, professor of astronomy and astrophysics at Penn State, presents evidence that Hamlet is "an allegory for the competition between the cosmological models of Thomas Digges of England and Tycho Brahe of Denmark." Usher says the paper is significant because Shakespeare favours the Diggesian model, which is the forerunner of modern cosmology. "As early as 1601, Shakespeare anticipated the new universal order and humankind's position in it," Usher states. "The play therefore manifests an astronomical cosmology that is no less magnificent than its literary and philosophical counterparts." Claudius Ptolemy perfected a model of the universe in the second century A.D. that remained the standard model into the sixteenth century. In this model, the Earth was stationary at the centre of the universe and everything else revolved around it. In 1543, Nicholas Copernicus of Poland published a revolutionary ...

20. Mysteries of the Sacred Universe: The Cosmology of the Bhagavata Purana (Book Review) [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon VI:6 (Dec 2001) Home¦ Issue Contents Mysteries of the Sacred Universe: The Cosmology of the Bhagavata Purana by Richard L. Thompson (Govardhan Hill Publishing: Alachua: Florida: 2000) Reviewed by Tania ta Maria I found Thompson's Mysteries of the Sacred Universe a very difficult book to read. It is not because it's badly written. It is well written-- extremely well. What made it difficult is the complexity of its subject matter. What Thompson sets out to accomplish is to show that Puranic cosmology is to be understood on three separate, but superimposed, levels: astronomical, geographical, and spiritual. And, in that respect, he succeeds brilliantly. When it comes to Puranic literature, Thompson's erudition shines through like the proverbial beacon. So, also, with his knowledge of astronomy and, on a different level, ancient astronomical lore. He is thus able to show that the ancient Hindus were well versed in astronomical matters even though they expressed this science in mythological terms. Moreover, a comparison ...
