... to be pteridosperms- woody land plants- now extinct and typical of Carboniferous coal deposits. In summary, we have here a collection of well preserved specimens, a fact that deserves an explanation. Marine and non-marine life forms are found together entombed; land plants are found also mixed with marine animals. These land plants are typical types found in coal strata and coal can have an auto- or allochthonous origin. In this case all the evidence points to a tidal wave type event similar to those described in Earth in Upheaval. Earthquake Electricity source: New Scientist 24.6.82, p. 846 We commend this delightful piece of writing on "earthquake lights", a phenomenon much reported, written upon and even photographed by the Japanese. "Scientists, however, have remained sceptical, since there has been no satisfactory way to explain how an earthquake could make the sky glow with a bluish-white light." Ah, yes, we note, this is a typical reaction by scientists, who, because they cannot come up with a mechanistic explanation are inclined to be ...
... calcination, and not so much of the bones of hearths that have lent evidence of the ecology, cuisine, and religious ceremonies of early human groups. Overall calcination has sometimes, with less than complete evidence, been interpreted as the work of torch-bearing invaders. For example, James Melaart uses the convenient phrase "whether by accident or by enemy action" to describe the destructive combustion of Troy IIg.(3) Earthquakes, too, are invoked with some frequency, although a determination that a fire is an effect of an earthquake is by no means simple. On rare occasions, where there exists a historical record such as Pliny the Younger's description of the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D., volcanism is admitted and may lead ultimately to excavation. There are still other Possible causes, as we shall see. The contention of this paper is that reports of past excavations should now be reviewed with a revised set of questions, Moreover, and because of the ultimate inadequacy of the information typically contained in them, it is suggested that a new interdisciplinary ...

... in Palestine wef mid dyn 20. This is particularly true of Lachish 10 where level VI displays evidence of a marked Egyptian influence. The city did not require elaborate defences as the whole of southern Canaan at this time was within the suzerainty of Egypt until shortly after the reign of Ramses VI. Level VI was destroyed suddenly in a violent conflagration that was total and complete and Lachish was abandoned for a period. Several skeletons reveal that some of the population had been trapped beneath falling debris and the destruction has the mark of an earthquake about it. However, numerous other sites were destroyed at the end of the LB period (but weren't necessarily destroyed at the same time-- and some of them display evidence of two or more destructions). If earthquake was responsible and then the bible should have preserved something due to the proximity of the event to Saul and David. In I Sam 7:10 the Lord "thundered with a great thunder on that day upon the Philistines, and discomfited them...". In I Sam 13: ...

... volcanoes The Evening Sun 12.2.92 The volcanic eruptions recorded on Jupiter's moon Io by the Voyager space probes have now subsided, as inferred from the large decline in the size of the plasma torus, recorded by Ulysses. The torus is formed of particles from the volcanoes which are ionized in Jupiter's fierce radiation belts. At the same time Jupiter's magnetosphere has doubled in size and is less organised than it was 13 years ago. ELECTROMAGNETISM Electrical earthquakes New Scientist 27.3.93, p. 8 Japanese seismologists have recorded strong electrical activity underground immediately preceding an earthquake. Ball lightning keeps cool New Scientist 20.3.93, p.18 A chemist has used his knowledge of thermodynamics to explain some of the characteristics of ball lightning. He suggests a hot plasma core becomes surrounded by a hydration layer which has the effect of refrigerating the surface 'skin'. GEOLOGY Earthquake detectors Science Frontiers No.86, March-April 1993 Theoretically the stress generated by a fault-slip earthquake should peter out within a distance equal to two times the length of the ruptured fault but an earthquake in California last summer, rupturing 70km of fault, reverberated throughout ...

... general principles and once you have understood them you will appreciate new dimensions to ideas of planetary and terrestrial catastrophe and the evolution of life. Chaos theory is the death knell to dogmatic uniformitarianism; this very readable book shows why. Earthquakes at Jericho New Scientist 6.7.91, pp. 45-48 Modern seismological and geological studies show that a rift along the Jordan valley forms the boundary between two of Earth's tectonic plates. The Arabian plate to the east is moving northwards and has left an historical, biblical and archaeological record of its effects. An earthquake in 1927 caused cracks in the ground, the sudden appearance of springs, a temporary damming of the river Jordan due to a mudslide and destruction of buildings in Jericho. A major upheaval in 31 BC destroyed the town of Qumran and was described by Josephus. A rupture of the central water cistern forced the inhabitants to abandon the town for several decades. In biblical records, Zechariah's prophecy describes an earthquake which happened during Uzziah's reign in 760 BC in terms very consistent with modern observations. Earlier biblical quakes were one during the ...
107. The "Great and Terrible Wilderness" [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Our interest is aroused by this last statement that it was a deluge that took the tribe of the Amalekites by surprise when they reached their old native land. Evidently the disturbance in the accustomed flow of events was experienced not only in Egypt, but in Arabia, too. Mecca, like Memphis, was visited by plagues: the shock that overthrew the cities of Egypt brought the Amalekites, at that time conquerors of Mecca, into disorder and tumult. They became like herds of animals brought to a state of excitement by an earthquake, and their fugacious troops reached Mount Seir (the Old Testament designates Mount Seir as their ? native land ?) and arrived at the shores of the Red Sea as the Israelites were escaping from Egypt. The catastrophe was obviously greater than a rupture of a dyke may cause. Not only the region of Seba, but Mecca, and all the shore of the sea Tehama were shattered. Could it be that Arim was not a ? dyke ? but something different? Massoudi wrote: ? All persons versed in tradition among ...
108. The Conquest of Canaan AND THE REVISED CHRONOLOGY [SIS C&C Review $]
... here, we find that there was indeed a large city at Jericho in the 15th century BC, and that during that century it came to a very violent end. Jericho was the first city taken by the Israelites after crossing the Jordan from the Plains of Moab. The story of how the walls of Jericho collapsed miraculously, enabling the Israelites to enter the city (Josh. 6:20), is well known. It has been plausibly suggested by several writers that what the Bible describes is the effect of a sudden earthquake (10). The Israelites entered the city, killed its inhabitants, and then set it on fire. Thus Jericho was completely destroyed, and Joshua pronounced a curse upon any man who should attempt to rebuild it (Josh. 6:24-26). As was pointed out above, there is no evidence for a violent destruction at Jericho in the 13th century BC (Late Bronze Age); at that time there was no city at Jericho to be destroyed. In the MBA, however, Jericho was an impressive ...
109. Planets in the Bible: I -- The Cosmology of Job [SIS C&C Review $]
... is with this context in mind that we now approach the vivid catastrophic imagery and catastrophic motifs of the book of Job. CATASTROPHE ON EARTH: THE WITNESS OF JOB A recurrent theme throughout the book of Job is the immense power of God as manifested in physical phenomena of the greatest violence and grandeur. Job describes a God "which removeth the mountains, and they know not: which overturneth them in His anger" (Job 9:5). Is it possible that this is a literal description of great seismic activity, earthquake and orogenesis, handed down from eye-witnesses? Throughout this paper we will follow the approach of Dr Velikovsky, with the credo that such descriptive passages, found throughout the Old Testament, "do not leave any room for doubt that by 'stones falling from the sky' were meant meteorites; by brimstone and pitch were meant brimstone and pitch; by scorching blast of fire was meant scorching blast of fire; by storm and tempest; storm and tempest; by a darkened sun, by the earth removed from its place, by ...
110. DIONYSUS [Quantavolution Website]
... 526, Euripides appears to derive the name from his having entered a door in Zeus's thigh, Dios thura, the door of Zeus. Much can be found about the nature of Dionysus in The Bacchae. Dionysus on his travels comes to Thebes in Boeotia, central Greece. His worship has been rejected by Pentheus, the young king of Thebes. The stranger, who is Dionysus, fills the women with divine frenzy; they rush out to Mount Cithaeron to worship and revel. Pentheus has the stranger imprisoned. There is an earthquake and the stranger breaks free. He induces Pentheus to dress up as a woman and spy on the women's revels. Pentheus is discovered and torn to pieces. His mother, Agave (sister of Semele), triumphantly carries his head back to Thebes, recovers her sanity, and recognises that she has killed her son. (Vide Agave in the glossary). In The Bacchae, 594, "hapte keraunion aithopa lampada", the stranger urges the reveller to kindle the blazing lightning torch. The scholiast on Euripides, ...
