121. Planet Uranus Has Two More Moons [SIS Internet Digest $]
... have at least one apiece. "They also probably have an irregular-- rather than spherical-- shape," said Burns, the Irving P. Church Professor of Engineering and professor of astronomy at Cornell. "The larger of the two satellites appears quite red in color, which may indicate a hydrocarbon surface that was bombarded by energetic particles from space," Burns said, adding that the color of the smaller moon will not be known until astronomers make further observations of the objects. He called them "enormous, ... From: SIS Internet Digest 1997:2 (Feb 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents Planet Uranus Has Two More Moons Mon, 03 Nov 1997 09:38:20 -0500 (EST) News Service, Cornell University.

... yesterday" in response to the earth tremors, how the media have launched a campaign to educate the people about the eclipse, and how "millions of devout Hindus will bathe in the holy rivers to propitiate their gods." "DID A FLAMING COMET PART THE RED SEA?- Weekend 12-18/3/80 In the third of a series entitled "The Bible is Right", some miracles are given an explanation. The first of these was the burning bush, explained in terms of an idea of Dr. Harold ... " The article then proceeds to tell "the earthquake theory is supported by Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky in his book Worlds in Collision, published 30 years ago." Velikovsky is misinterpreted as positing that "in 1500 B.C. a large fiery body broke away from the planet Jupiter and went into orbit round the sun." Otherwise, Velikovsky is given fair treatment, and the activities of the (un-named) comet are enumerated, "cataclysmic earthshock", plagues, famines, heaping up of the Red Sea, destruction of Jericho ...
123. On Thundergods and Thunderbolts [Maverick Science Website]
... understood the major part of the Veda." In our previous studies on Indra, we argued that the Vedic thundergod is to be identified with the planet Mars based upon his fundamental affinity with Heracles, Verethragna, and Vahagn, each of whom was identified with the red planet by their respective cultures. The identification with Mars, although surprising at first sight, is actually the key to deciphering the multifaceted mythology surrounding the thundergod, as virtually every characteristic of Indra's finds a close analogue in ancient conceptions associated with Mars. The Lightning-hurling ... number of facets and therefore his character is the most difficult to understand. If anybody understood it, he would have understood the major part of the Veda."

124. The Enclosed Sun-Cross [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... some of honey, some of wine, and some of oil." (107) In a corresponding manner each river receives a different color. The four rivers of the Chinese polar paradise Kwen-lun possess a remarkable feature: one is blue, another white, another red, and another black. (108) Each of the Hindu four rivers has its special colour. (109) The Kalmucks of Siberia describe a primordial sea from which four rivers flowed "toward the different points of the compass," each issuing from the ... and only through symbolic assimilation to this cosmic dwelling did the terrestrial habitation share in the imagery. A comparison of Egyptian cross symbolism with that of other lands reveals numerous parallels. The oldest Mesopotamian image of divinity was the sun-cross, symbol of the creator An, the planet Saturn. An, like his counterparts around the world, "brought forth and begat the fourfold wind" within the womb of Tiamat, the cosmic sea. (16) The cult worshippers of Ninurta (Saturn) also represented their god by the cross. ...

... star Sirius, Bullinger (103)-- unfortunately without any references-- quotes the words of Virgil and Homer thus: "Virgil says that Sirius 'With pestilential heat infects the sky' [while Homer spoke of it as a star 'Whose burning breath taints the red air with fevers, plagues, and death'." A rationalization then follows: "It is not, however, of its heat that its name speaks, but of the fact that it is the brightest of all the stars..." ( ... of Heaven". (6) That particular bird was also seen on the heads of the images of Astarte, Cybele, and Isis. (7) More significantly, though, is the circumstance that the dove became, by indirection, a symbol for the planet Venus due to the complex interrelationships and common iconography which existed between various goddesses and demigoddesses in pre-Christian paganism. (8) As the reader will eventually and clearly see, the metamorphosis of Mary and Jesus into a metaphysical or specific celestial light is an implicit part ...

There is a crescent "moon", but its character and movement contradict everything about our moon today. While the planet Venus was venerated by all ancient cultures, the earliest memories of Venus simply defy modern observations of the planet. And as for other celebrated forms, one seeks in vain for any meaningful reference at all. Where is the famous fountain of the sun? Where ...

'Her guardian then painted her whole body red and dressed her in a black skirt and robe. His face and hair were painted red, and a fan-shaped headdress of twelve eagle feathers was attached to his hair.' 'This was the costume in which the Morning Star usually appeared in visions.'. ... Assyrian lists of divine names, a goddess dSILIMtu (to be read dSULMITU) or dSILIMni-tu (dsULMANITu) is mentioned among W-S gods, and is defined as DISTAR Urusilim-ma, Istar of Jerusalem. The fact that the w-s goddess Sulimitu was identified with Istar, whose planet was Venus, speaks for considering this Sulimitu as the female counterpart of the dusk-god Slm in Ugarit, and one can imagine the variant sahar-sulmitu instead of shr-slm."-- Hellenosemitica (Leiden, 1965), pp. 154-155 (emphasis added).ATHTAR ...
128. Towards a Science of Mythology: Velikovsky's Contribution [Aeon Journal $]
... itself a landmark contribution to comparative mythology. (2) One could pose equally provocative questions about the other planets. Why is it that the planet Mars was represented as a warrior equipped with sword and/or club by peoples the world over? Why was the red planet consistently associated with images of the World Pillar, the latter object being envisaged as the upholder of the ancient heavens? (3) Why were the greatest of ancient goddesses-- Inanna, Ishtar, Astarte, Isis, Anat, Aphrodite, etc. ... any truly seminal work, Worlds in Collision raises as many questions as it answers. Indeed, questions inspired by Velikovsky's work have since launched hundreds of studies, more than one of which portends a revolution in our understanding of ancient mythology. Why is it that the planet Saturn was reckoned the first king by peoples around the ancient world, and why is it that the Golden Age associated with that planet-king is recalled with nostalgic veneration? Why was that same planet called by the name of the Sun? Such questions formed the backdrop ...
... proposed in this paper and are not compatible with the ice ball comet model. They are as follows: 1) Tail material (positive ions and positively charged dust particles) will be detected by direct observation to move towards the comet nucleus. (Previously, Earth-based red shift measurements have been used to suggest that tail material moves away from the comet nucleus; Part III of this paper shows why these data have been misinterpreted.) 2) Spacecraft telemetry will begin to sense an acceleration towards the comet nucleus- far in excess ... is the nebular ion cloud (explained in Part I, KRONOS IX:I) which contains the light elements up to approximately sulfur, as this is what is observed in comet tails of extreme length. That is, as the comet transforms into a hot young planet with a circularized orbit (to be discussed in detail), the original planetary atmosphere will already be present (Venus being a prime example). Another source is the chance grazing of the Sun, as in the case of the comets of 1882 and 1887 ...
130. The Saturn Thesis (Part 3) [Aeon Journal $]
... not approached the subject with the intent to undermine a published thesis. But this elementary reasoning led to a further issue bearing directly on the sym-bolic link of the Egyptian goddess to the warrior-hero. In Egyptian art the Uraeus-Eye is commonly presented in a unique relationship to a red stone or sphere, signi-fying the sun god's innermost, masculine "heart of carnelian." In this relationship the Uraeus does not look like a sphere but a narrow band. The same form appears in familiar representations of the Aten and of the Shen-bond. But ... motionless in the sky. The central orb (or ovoid form on the bottom illustration) is Venus. And the smaller darker orb is Mars. The ovoid form of Venus, I have suggested, involved gases (presumably drawn from Mars) and moving around the planet. From this starting point, the model predicts highly specific and concrete relationships of the planets Saturn, Venus and Mars to the ancient divinities with which the planets were associated in the first astronomies. It predicts highly specific and concrete attributes of the respective divinities; ...
