... field of Jupiter are akin to those launched through space by the stars and received by radio astronomers on Earth. Jupiter's signal emerges at 50 million kilowatts. Super-hurricanes and Jovian lightning discharges, found to reach even its satellite Io, are common [15. The Great Red Spot in Jupiter's cover may be the great depression still preserved by cyclonic action, whence sprang cometary Venus, or another large body, perhaps of giants in the rebellion described above. The Spot is a surface as well as cloud phenomenon. The radio noises have ... did not bring them back." [2 The Age of Saturnia ended in the Biblical Deluge. The Age of Jovea (5700 to 4400 B. P.) began. The planets Saturn, Neptune [3, Uranus [4, and perhaps a "Planet 'X'" (suspected to exist but not yet discovered) [5 had receded. They were retired gods; mythologists have applied this concept of deus otiosus to Saturn and Uranus. Mankind might have seen all of them recede into the farther reaches of the ...
92. The Parting of the Waters of the Red Sea [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1987 No 1 (Sep 1987) Home¦ Issue Contents The Parting of the Waters of the Red Sea by Ragnar Forshufvud Fig. 1. The Gulf of Suez. The hot spring Hamman Fara'un (var. spellings) is presumably situated on or near the mountain Gebel Hamman Fara'un In C& C Workshop 1986:1, p.5, Roger Ashton criticises an attempt by George F. Weinert to explain the Parting of the Waters as a consequence of an interplanetary tidal force. I agree ... however, I shall describe the nature of telluric currents and attempt to locate the Sea of Passage. We used to call telluric currents "earth currents". I suppose the word "telluric" has been introduced to stress the fact that we are talking about the planet Earth (Tellus) and not earth (= soil). They are natural electric currents which have some complicated connection with currents and fields in the magnetosphere. Present telluric currents are of the order of one million amperes. They show preference for paths of high ...
93. More on the Thermal Aspects of Venus [Kronos $]
... are ultimately confirmed in Talbott's model, Mr. Forshufvud's preoccupation with minutiae obscures the nature of the model's elegance and true importance: It is the first rigorous, scientifically respectable model of Venus' thermal history that ineluctably ties her present measured surface temperature to her having been red hot 3,500 years ago, thereby lending quantitative respectability to Worlds in Collision. Its immediate motivation was the slick, but erroneous, "cooling computation" presented by Carl Sagan in Appendix 3 of his analysis of Worlds in Collision. Considering Mr. Forshufvud's ... This was no catastrophe, because a similar theory was published by Keister and Hamilton.(2) The authors, after discussing some difficulties of Velikovsky's theory of the expulsion of Venus from Jupiter, proposed an alternative theory whereby "Venus, formerly an obscure and remote planet in the solar system, passes close to Jupiter and is deflected into an eccentric inner solar system orbit". My own theory was based upon a suggestion once made by Jueneman:(3)"... Venus may also have been a rather large ...
94. From Myth to a Physical Model [Aeon Journal $]
... or nonexistent. The colors associated with the participating planets in this early stage are-- Saturn: yellow, gold, i.e., as god of the Golden Age; Venus: white, silver, gray, later turning to bright turquoise; Mars: rusty red and dark. The two images presented below represent the view of the celestial configuration from Earth under two closely related conditions, without any attempt to accommodate the light from the Sun (a critical component). In the first, the dark orb of Mars appears ... justification, then the ground-rules for study of the past are radically changed. The key is to follow the anomaly. For example: perhaps you begin to notice that a variety of mythical themes all point to an anomalous conclusion about the past-- say, the planet Venus' former cometary identity (first discerned by Velikovsky). You begin to wonder if Venus' recurring identity as soul-star, hair star, bearded star, serpent-dragon, torch of heaven, feathered serpent, bearded serpent, hairy serpent, fiery serpent, etc ...
95. Mother Goddess and Warrior-Hero (Part One) [Aeon Journal $]
... complicating the mystery is the fact that the turquoise heart-soul or eye has its own "heart" (central, interior orb), called "the heart of the heart" or "the heart of the soul." This is the ab-heart, represented by a red stone called "the heart (ab) of carnelian." (22) And most significantly this innermost, masculine "heart" will be seen to be strictly synonymous with the unborn warrior-hero, whom the religious texts declare to have been conceived in the hat-heart ... From: Aeon I:5 (Sep 1988) Home¦ Issue Contents Mother Goddess and Warrior-Hero (Part One) David Talbott The necessary emphasis on the planet Saturn in much of the prior discussion of the polar configuration has perhaps created a false impression that must now be corrected. Because the myths present Saturn as the "first father"-- the central sun and creator who originally stood "alone" in the sky-- that planet is the logical focus of any attempt to present the configuration. At the same ...
96. Astronomer Sees Red [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:2 (Dec 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents Astronomer Sees Red CCNet, 25 May 2000 Astronomers from Northern Arizona University and the University of Oklahoma have made a startling find on the ragged edge of the solar system that may provide an important clue to the origin and evolution of the solar system. This discovery is published in the Oct. 26 issue of Nature. Stephen Tegler, associate professor of physics and astronomy at NAU, and William Romanishin, associate professor of physics and astronomy at ... theorized that the Solar System extended beyond Pluto. In 1992, David Jewitt and Lane Luu, astronomers at the University of Hawaii, discovered the first Kuiper belt object. Today there are nearly 400 known Kuiper belt objects that range in size from small cities to the planet Pluto which is smaller than the Moon. Tegler said, "We found patterns that we did not know existed four or five years ago. Once we understand the patterns, they will give us additional insight into history of the solar system. What we have ...
97. The Birth of Athena [Aeon Journal $]
... the goddess are almost uniformly repulsive: Although Kali is sometimes said to be beautiful... Hindu texts referring to the goddess are nearly unanimous in describing her as terrible in appearance and as offensive and destructive in her habits. Her hair is disheveled, her eyes red and fierce, she has fangs and a long lolling tongue, her lips are often smeared with blood, her breasts are long and pendulous, her stomach is sunken, and her figure is generally gaunt. She is naked but for several characteristic ornaments: a ... Greeks-- is a tell-tale sign of just how far we are from achieving a real understanding of Greek mythology. Velikovsky's Athena Perhaps the most novel explanation of Athena's birth was that offered by Immanuel Velikovsky, who saw in the myth an ancient cataclysm associated with the planet Jupiter (Zeus), one in which the planet Venus (Athena) was born from the giant planet in comet-like form. Velikovsky's thesis, presented in 1950 in the book Worlds in Collision, inspired an extensive and often vitriolic debate, one which shows little ...

... - an alignment Talbott, Cardona, and Cochrane theorize as having been with Saturn, Venus and Mars;- the large outer disc in the pictographs being Saturn, the next inner disc representing Venus (often with rays emanating from it) and the center dark or red disc being Mars. The view of a crescent with a star-like body at its center is impossible if our moon were the crescent. However, it would indeed be the scene viewed from Earth in its polar alignment if the crescent were Saturn, somewhat illuminated by ... capricious, and frequently violent. The priestly astronomers of ancient Mesopotamia and elsewhere make clear that these remarkable powers were planets. If the myths surrounding these gods are to be taken seriously, they raise many questions. Why did ancient man worship the god Saturn? The planet Saturn is very difficult for the average person to even find in the sky today. Some mythologists postulate that there is evidence in ancient lore to connect the scarred warrior hero of legend with the god Mars. Yet the planet we know as Mars is only a ...
99. Problems With The Morning Star [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... have considered so far. Quetzalcoatl, and his Mayan equivalent Kukulcan, as Morning Star appears to be a protective god because he precedes and therefore brings up the Sun[7,8. The Pawnee similarly regarded the Morning Star, which they associated with the colour red[9. Conversely they regarded the Evening Star as evil and dangerous as it pushes the Sun down and brings darkness. Its associated colour is black. The Evening Star of the Mesoamericans is Xolotl, a dark and ugly monster who brought misfortune and, again ... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1987 No 1 (Sep 1987) Home¦ Issue Contents Problems With The Morning Star by Jill Abery Velikovsky makes much of the planet Venus as the Morning Star, particularly in respect of its worship as an object of terror by peoples round the world[1. However, he often appears to use the name Morning Star as a generic term and does not dwell over-much on the dual aspects of Venus as both Morning and Evening Stars. This duality has subsequently been discussed and its importance ...
100. Letters [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 4 No 1 (Jul 1981) Home¦ Issue Contents Letters The Great Red Spot on Jupiter Dear Sir, Dr Garry Hunt, in "The Weather on Jupiter" (NEW SCIENTIST 21 May) writes: "Without doubt, the Great Red Spot and the other large features are meteorological in origin..." and starts his next sentence with "Certainly". The use of such positive terms is not a good scientific attitude, especially as he goes on to say that the nature ... Dr Hunt suggested the Great Red Spot may be the result of a chance capture of a planetary body. There is a great deal of evidence which indicates that it is the site of the ejection of a planetary body; that this was, in fact, the planet Venus, and that this happened when the incandescent core of Jupiter disrupted only a few thousand years ago. This would account for the fact that Venus is now giving out much more heat than it receives from the Sun and its surface temperature is higher than is ...
