1. Crack in Einstein's Pedestal [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:2 (Dec 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents Crack in Einstein's Pedestal Thoth Vol IV, No. 10 June 15, 2000 It seems the Sheldrake effect is at work. For some years a lone researcher in New York, Ralph Sansbury [see Internet Digest 1996:1, p.15, and 1997:2, p. 11, has been performing experiments that suggest that the speed of light is a near-instantaneous action-at-a-distance and that the speed of light is merely a measure of the delay in response of the receiver. Now we have the following report from the London Times, June 4 edition: Eureka! Scientists break speed of light, Jonathan Leake, Science Editor Scientists claim they have broken the ultimate speed barrier: the speed of light. In research carried out in the United States, particle physicists have shown that light pulses can be accelerated to up to 300 times their normal velocity of 186,000 miles per second. The implications, like the speed, are mind-boggling. On one interpretation it means that ...
2. The Lesser Light [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History III:2 (July 1981) Home¦ Issue Contents INTERACTION The Lesser Light James E. Strickling And God made the two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night .-Genesis 1:16 "Regardless of their preferred classification of [the First Chapter of Genesis, whether it be history or poetry, believers and skeptics alike have always been in accord in their interpretation of the terms in the above passage of Scripture. What could be more obvious than the 'greater light' of the sun to 'rule the day' and the 'lesser light' of the moon to 'rule the night' even though the sun and the moon are not explicitly mentioned. Within our experience, this seems to be the only possible interpretation. [However a completely literal interpretation of this verse night indicate a genuine source of light, rather than a reflective body such as the moon-- a soft light that might indeed 'rule the night.'.. ." So stated my original ...
3. Einstein [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Einstein Einstein was born in 1879, the year Maxwell died. It was the year when Michelson made the first in the series of his experiments in investigating the velocity of light. Einstein was born in Ulm, the town in which Kepler, his favorite scientist of earlier times, had spent some of the last months of his life, before dying in 1630. In high school the geography teach declared Einstein to be moronic; in the Zurich Polytechnic his physics professor, as Einstein told me, once said to him: ? In this college the poorest class is of experimental physics, and the poorest pupil are you.? Upon graduation he was unable to secure a teaching position and, after years of private tutoring of students deficient in mathematics, he was happy to receive the position of a patent examiner in the Bern Patent Office. There he profited in learning to express himself in short and exact terms. At the age of twenty-six, in 1905, he offered the theory of relativity, later called the ? special ? or ? restricted ? ...
... From: Pensée Vol. 3 No 3: (Fall 1973) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered V" Home¦ Issue Contents The Velocity of Light In Relation to Moving Bodies Immanuel Velikovsky Copyright 1973 by Immanuel Velikovsky A proposal for an experiment This paper remains in the form in which it was written over a decade ago. Ed. The Michelson-Morley experiment performed in 1886 demonstrated that a beam of light that issues from a terrestrial source and travels in the direction of terrestrial motion, East-West-East or West-East-West, needs the same time to traverse a laboratory distance as a beam that travels at right angles to that motion (North-South-North or South-North-South). The undulatory theory of light transmitted by waves in the ether anticipated detection of a difference in the velocities of the two beams due to the orbital velocity of the earth through absolute ether-filled space. Half a year later, when the earth was on the opposite side of its orbit, the same experiment again disclosed no difference in the velocities of the beams; any possible compensatory motion on the part of the solar system or the ...
5. The Light of the Seven Days [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... The Light of the Seven Days Isaiah in describing the days to come, when great changes in nature will take place, says that the earth will give its increase in abundance, and ? the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of the seven days... .? (1) One could think that ? the light of the seven days ? refers to the seven days of creation however, the actual explanation appears to me to be different: the expression ? the light of the seven days ? refers, in my view, to the seven days preceding the Flood that are referred to in the verse: ? For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth.... And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the Flood were upon the earth.? (Genesis 7: 4, 10) It is not explained in the text after seven days of what? ...
6. B-24 SIGHTS "CIRCLES OF LIGHT" [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 121: Jan-Feb 1999 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects B-24 SIGHTS "CIRCLES OF LIGHT" The still-unexplained balls of light (" foo fighters") seen by Allied pilots over wartime Germany were duplicated in the Pacific. In addition, strange "circles of light" followed American aircraft. The following paragraphs were taken from the "Weekly Intelligence Summary," Headquarters, Eastern Air Command, South East Asia. June 1, 1945. "A B-24 of the 11th Bomb Group on a snooper mission over Truk during the early morning hours of 3 May 1945, encountered what may prove to be as baffling a phenomena (sic) as the balls of light seen by the B-29s while over the Japanese mainland. (Excerpted From Hq. AAF, POA, Air Intell. Memo No. 4, 8 May 1945.) "The B-24 first observed two red circles of light approaching the plane from below while still over the Truk atoll. One light was on the ...
7. Ra as Saturn [SIS Internet Digest $]
... that you want to join. Ra as Saturn From: Dwardu Cardona <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Mon, 07 Apr 1997 09:59:28 -0700 Some of The Reasons Concerning Why The Mythological Ra Could Not Have Been The Sun. From the paper read at the Portland World Conference.... Thus, for example, Ra was often lauded as "Lord of the Circles" and "he who entereth [or liveth in the circle. (12) He was described as "the sender forth of light into his Circle" and the "Governor of [his circle." (13) What is this Circle that the hymns allude to? Egyptologists will immediately inform us that this Circle of which the hymns speak was what the Egyptians referred to as the Duat (or Tuat), a word that has been rendered into English as "the Underworld." Egyptologists will also inform us that this Underworld, or Netherworld, was supposed to have consisted of a great valley enclosed by mountains. Through this valley ran a river ...

9. Darkness and the Deep [Aeon Journal $]
... 3) a topic to which Tresman has more recently returned. (4) Combining Velikovsky's postulate with that of David Talbott and others, Frederick Hall embraced the same idea, presenting it in a speculative scenario concerning the history of the Solar System. (5) Prehistoric man, ignorant of astronomical matters, would not have been able to deduce that his world was a satellite of another planet. But, being close enough to Saturn, he would have been able to view that planet as something bigger than the present pin-point of light in the night sky. Can this much, at least, be verified? Evidence of Saturn's former proximity to Earth can be derived in quantum sufficit from the collective mythological record of the ancients but, for the present, the few items presented below should suffice. The first of these concerns the Roman god Janus. That Janus was merely another name for Saturn was known and acknowledged by the ancients themselves. Thus, in describing the New Year festival, Joannes, the Lydian, had this to say: Our own Philadelphia ...
10. The Weakness of the Venus Greenhouse Theory [Kronos $]
... for landing astronauts. One of the highest temperature estimates that by H. Urey in 1959, was about 47 C; D. Menzel revoked his earlier estimate of 50 C as much too high; generally, Venus below the clouds was thought to be of room temperature. It was, however, discovered to be over 400 C (close to 800 F). Several futile attempts were made to explain the phenomenon: aeolian theory of great winds causing sand to rub and create heat; electrical charges of opposite polarity on the light and dark hemispheres of the planet; electrical discharges in the atmosphere; or the greenhouse effect. The last scheme involved more than a few scientists in trying to figure out how it could work. In order for the greenhouse effect to work, solar light needs to go through a transparent atmosphere, hit the ground, change its wavelength, and then find the atmosphere opaque for the new (infrared) wavelength; the trapped radiation would account for the heat of Venus.* The presence of water vapor and carbon dioxide is ...
