1. The Origin Of The Moon [The Velikovskian $]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 2 No 3 (1994) Home¦ Issue Contents The Origin Of The Moon Charles Ginenthal The origin of the Moon has been an extremely controversial problem among astronomers and geophysicists for a long time. There are, at present, four major theories under consideration by members of the astrophysical community. Each of the four groups of advocates has been attempting to show that the evidence for its position is strongest and that the other concepts are fundamentally unfounded. In this contest of hypotheses, Velikovsky has interpreted the mythology and arrived at the conclusion that the Moon was captured recently by the Earth and set into its present orbit. In "Earth Without a Moon," Velikovsky states: Democritus and Anaxagoras taught that there was a time when the Earth was without the Moon. Aristotle wrote that Arcadia in Greece, before being inhabited by the Hellenes, had a population of Pelasgians, and that these aborigines occupied the land already before there was a Moon in the sky above the Earth; for this reason, they were called Proselenes [people ...
... in Spring and Fall (March 21st and September 21st) sunrise will occur along the East-West line. Notice that the Sun rises North of East during the Spring and Summer, and South of East during the Fall and Winter. Its daily movement along the horizon comes to a stop and reverses direction at the Summer Solstice (June 21st), and Winter Solstice (December 21st), the longest and shortest days of the year. The solstices marked the beginning of the New Year in ancient calendar systems. The phases of the Moon are shown between the Sarsen Circle and the Trilithon Horseshoe to emphasize their close relationship with those components of the Stonehenge. We suggest that the reader use the Stonehenge Calendar as described below as background for "The Calendar of Coligny", which will be published in a future issue of HORUS. Setting the Sun and Moon Markers Place a marker on the Sun Circle at the point on that circle where it intersects the Heelstone axis (near C). Count the number of days from the 1W Summer solstice (include today's date ...
3. The Moon In Upheaval [The Velikovskian $]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 1 No 1 (1993) Home¦ Issue Contents The Moon In Upheaval Charles Ginenthal In discussing scientists' discoveries of the Moon, Thomas Gold states, "Much...was built upon conceptual structure, so that it has now become quite hard to distinguish these [theoretical constructs from factual evidence. Reports were written as fact that is pure conjecture [and misrepresentation is a great disservice to lunar science." (1) From the introductory citation, it appears that the evidence derived from lunar exploration cannot be used to support any theory of the Moon's structure, let alone Velikovsky's. However, this is not the case. If the Moon was subjected to great tidal distortions by the close approach of a planetary body as massive as Venus, then clear, straightforward evidence for such a recent event should exist from the center of the Moon to its surface regolith. The number of phenomena pointing to this fact will be outlined below. We will also find that the concepts contrary to this evidence are all subject to "Urey's Law ...
4. The Earth Without the Moon [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... The Earth Without the Moon The period when the Earth was Moonless is probably the most remote recollection of mankind. Democritus and Anaxagoras taught that there was a time when the Earth was without the Moon. (1) Aristotle wrote that Arcadia in Greece, before being inhabited by the Hellenes, had a population of Pelasgians, and that these aborigines occupied the land already before there was a moon in the sky above the Earth; for this reason they were called Proselenes. (2) Apollonius of Rhodes mentioned the time ? when not all the orbs were yet in the heavens, before the Danai and Deukalion races came into existence, and only the Arcadians lived, of whom it is said that they dwelt on mountains and fed on acorns, before there was a moon.? (3) Plutarch wrote in The Roman Questions: ? There were Arcadians of Evander ? s following, the so-called pre-Lunar people.? (4) Similarly wrote Ovid: ? The Arcadians are said to have possessed their land before the birth of Jove, and the ...
5. THE DISASTROUS LOVE AFFAIR OF MOON AND MARS: PART TWO: GODS, PLANETS, MADNESS, CHAPTER 8 [Quantavolution Website]
... Quantavolution.Org E-MAIL: email@example.com TABLE OF CONTENTS THE DISASTROUS LOVE AFFAIR OF MOON AND MARS by Alfred de Grazia PART TWO: GODS, PLANETS, MADNESS CHAPTER EIGHT THE TWO FACES OF LOVE The Aphrodite of the light Olympian-age character plays opposite her usual star in the Love Affair, Ares. Her husband, Hephaestus, earns little affection from her, and, though the story is not mentioned here, she is the mother of three children by Ares. She is one of the few ever to have expressed love for Ares, and in "The Battle of the Gods," in the Iliad, she goes to his aid in battle and is roundly smacked by the Goddess Athena. If we look into Homer for the precise astronomical referents of Ares, Aphrodite, Hephaestus and Athena, we are disappointed. Homer does not say that the three sky bodies- planet mars, Moon, and planet Venus are represented by them, not in the Iliad, nor the Odyssey, nor in the Love Affair. How then are we to assure ourselves that ...
6. Oberg's Unscientific Method [The Velikovskian $]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 1 No 4 (1993) Home¦ Issue Contents Oberg's Unscientific Method Charles Ginenthal "Scholars are not expected to take anyone's word on faith."(1) I thank James E. Oberg for taking the time to write a critical reply to "The Moon in Upheaval."(2) His criticism of that work, while very incomplete, unfortunately often turns out to be factually incorrect and is based on carefully evading the evidence produced. His criticism tends to argue three points. They are: to attack the citations presented, while, at the same time, calling them "factually correct"; to attack the lack of mathematical and physical models, which he suggests proves my statements incorrect (he does so without presenting counter mathematics as support to attack the evidence and without presenting counter evidence); to use, repeatedly, the term pseudoscience or its derivatives over and over to cover up the inadequate nature of his own criticism (the final refuge of critics who cannot deal with evidence). Not content with ...
7. Gravity and Pterodactyls [Aeon Journal $]
... of two conducting surfaces separated by an insulator.) We, on Earth, live on one plate of a giant condenser; the other is the ionized upper atmosphere. Gravity is a bit higher over the oceans, although they have less mass than dry land, because salt water is a better conductor of electricity. The magma below the crust is also a conductor. (Note: The Biefield Brown effect has no Newtonian equal and opposite reaction.) Werner von Braun had it stated that the neutral point between Earth and the Moon is 45,000 miles from the Moon which is quite a bit different from the usually given figure of 22,000 miles. I am inclined to favor von Braun because he actually managed to get several expeditions to the Moon and back again while others derived their figures from orbital calculations. Gravity on the surface of the Moon is at least 2/3 of what it is on Earth and not the 1/6 it is claimed to be. This is obvious because it was necessary to send a vehicle to the ...
8. Magnetic Remanence in Lunar Rocks [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 2 No 2: (May 1972) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered I" Home¦ Issue Contents Magnetic Remanence in Lunar Rocks A Candid Look at Scientific Misbehavior Robert Treash Robert Treash teaches at San Diego Evening College Prior to the first Apollo moon landing July 21, 1969, Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky on three occasions successfully predicted the scientifically unexpected --that remanent magnetism would be discovered in the lunar rocks. Outlining his ideas in a memorandum submitted to H. H. Hess, chairman of the Space Science Board, National Academy of Science, on May 19, 1969, Velikovsky wrote: "The moon was repeatedly heated and its entire surface melted less than 35 and 27 centuries ago. At the times the moon's surface was molten in near approaches with other celestial bodies, it was enveloped in powerful magnetic fields; if the surface cooled below the Curie point before the magnetic fields were weakened and removed, then it is to be expected that lavas on the moon (most of its rocks are lava) still possess a high magnetic remanence ...
9. CHAOS AND CREATION: CHAPTER 07: EARTH PARTURITION AND MOON BIRTH [Quantavolution Website]
... Quantavolution.Org E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org TABLE OF CONTENTS CHAOS AND CREATION by Alfred de Grazia CHAPTER SEVEN EARTH PARTURITION AND MOON BIRTH The Uranian age closed in a crescendo of destruction. The ancient orphic rites of Greece commemorated their remote Uranian origins when they began with the chanting of the myth of the cracking of the cosmic egg. That the world was an egg that had to be broken to begin the human experience is a myth found in all quarters of the globe. We have reported this in the preceding chapter [1. Heaven burst to produce the great god Ouranos and the turbulent sky. Then Ouranos was dismembered by his son, Saturn, in league with Gaea, his spouse and Earth. Aphrodite Urania, the Moon, was then born, Daughter of Ouranos, she was a product of his dismembered genitalia fallen upon Earth [2. Moon is worshipped after her father retired, disgruntled and bitter at the revolt of his children and from his injuries. The Moon would have revolved around Mother Earth (Ge or Gaia), who finally controlled ...
10. Megaliths, Moon Cycles, and Movements of the Earth [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 6 No 3 (Feb 1986) Home¦ Issue Contents Megaliths, Moon Cycles, and Movements of the Earth Jill Abery Many authors have written in support of the idea that ancient man was deeply concerned with the movements of the Moon. Alexander Marshack has suggested that the engravings on 'batons' (objects of unexplained function) from the Upper Palaeolithic of western, central and eastern Europe were recordings of the lunar cycle.(1) Alexander Thom is well known for his work on British megalithic sites and the subsequent arguments about the validity of his conclusions. There is doubt concerning the accuracy of observation possible at many of the sites; nevertheless, there seems to be a good case for considering that many of them were built with lunar alignments in mind.(2) Outside Britain, Professor Maxia, working on the nuraghi of Sardinia, has shown that the associated 'well-temples' are astronomically significant and based on the Moon.(3) If it is accepted that these observations are correct, what could be the motivation behind ...
