191. Mons Veneris [Aeon Journal $]
... the current arrangement of the solar system, Mars does not appear to rise in the east with the Sun. Indeed, the Sun and Mars are never visible together in the sky during those relatively rare occasions when Mars moves in close proximity to the Sun, the red planet only coming into view after the Sun has gone down. Moreover, when Mars does appear in the east, it is always faint and typically invisible, being then on the other side of the Sun and thus hundreds of millions of miles away from terrestrial ... ancient poets: "No class of cylinders better illustrates the poetic imagination of a primitive people than those which give us the representation of the Sun-god Shamash emerging from the gates of morning and rising over the Eastern mountains." (9) Venus Ancient hymns celebrating the planet Venus-- or the goddess identified with that planet, Inanna/Ishtar-- describe it as being in close proximity to the ancient sun-god. Thus, Inanna is repeatedly brought into connection with the site where the sun-god rises (ki-utu-e-a). In the ...

... BC, woods still flourished in now dehydrated areas of the Sudan [100, the Nubian sector of which has had no continuous yearly rainfall since about 3,500BC [101. Before then, in Neolithic (middle Holocene) times, the (currently bare) Red Sea Hills were well wooded and irrigated by rivers- now nearly all dry- well stocked with fish. Several distinct predynastic Egyptian cultures successfully availed themselves of those conditions [102. As now known to us, much of the Saharan desert regime dates from only ... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1997:2 (Apr 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents Planet in Crisis: the Earth's Last 12,000 Years By J.B. Delair Summary Earth's geological record is sporadically punctuated by well marked catastrophic signatures, caused either by limited activation of internal planetary mechanisms (e.g. earthquakes) generated by Earth itself, or by powerful external agencies (e.g. impacting cosmic objects) interacting with Earth to cause global disruption. Purely terrestrial catastrophes can mostly be ascribed to crustal dislocation generated by more deep ...
193. The Road to Saturn (Excerpts from an Autobiographical Essay) [Aeon Journal $]
... have been completely obscured by the colossal accretion disc, thus effectively hiding not only the stars but also the Sun; Saturn's southern hemisphere would have protruded bodily through its equatorial cloud, thus rendering itself quite clearly as a fast rotating globe to Earthly eyes; and its red glow would have been sufficient to heat the Earth at close proximity without actually dissolving the gloom. The same placental cloud, rotating as a giant whirlpool in the sky, would also have been the dark abysmal deep out of which creation was said to have progressed ... If Michanowsky, on the other hand, was to raise his date, it would remove the occurrence beyond the reaches of the Sumerian data. What is curious about Vela X is its Sumerian connection with the god Ea since Ea was one of the personifications of the planet Saturn. In fact, as I have already noted elsewhere, Michanowsky's entire work is littered with purely Saturnian motifs, though he did not seem to recognize this. Only once did he acknowledge a connection between Saturn and Vela X-when he noted that, in one ...
194. Thoth Vol. VII, No 3 April 30, 2003 [Thoth Website]
... , then there are three additional stars that have changed (" evolved") during the last couple of millennia. Sirius is a main sequence, brilliant white A-type star. The ancients (among them: Cicero, Horace, Ptolemy, and Seneca) called it red or "coppery" in color. Seneca, in the days of Nero, called it "redder than Mars", whereas he described Jupiter as "not at all red." Castor is designated as the alpha star in the constellation of Gemini, but ... and astronomy. Kids have a keen interest in astronomy and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. What's out there? Are we alone? The first question we need to ask before we look for life on other worlds is how did intelligent life come to form on this planet? Are these unique circumstances, or are they common? Which stars are most likely to harbour worlds like ours? It is a question involving a broad mix of cosmology, mythology, geology and biology. Unfortunately, viewpoints today are polarized into only two choices ...
195. "Stonehenge Viewpoint?" Biased View (Forum) [Kronos $]
... outermost heaven or in any of its proper parts." V Next, Gabriel and Mars: I will not here debate in detail Cardona's argument that Gabriel, Prince of Fire and Ripener of Fruits, could not have been associated with Mars simply on account of the red colour of the planet. I will merely direct KRONOS readers to Ptolemy's Tetrabiblios (1.4) which talks of the dry and fiery nature of Mars "which is indicated by his colour", and which also contains examples (2.8) of Mars associations which make ... to border on an admission that Velikovskianism is a faith rather than a science. IV Let me now take up some specific issues raised by Cardona, starting with the synonymity or otherwise of gods and planets. As an example, Ishtar was a goddess associated with the planet Venus, but she was clearly not synonymous with it. This is not a matter requiring great scholarly debate; it is a matter of simple common sense. In the Prayer of the Raising of the Hand,(4) for example, line 40 tells ...
196. Velikovsky and the Sequence of Planetary Orbits [Pensee]
... as 2000 K. within the historical past is purely hypothetical; such an extreme temperature seems to require an unacceptably high rate of cooling, and is more than is needed for the incandescence claimed by Velikovsky (the approximate relationship between observed incandescence and temperature is: dark red heat, 925 to 1025 K.; bright red heat, 1125 to 1225 K.; yellowish red heat, 1325 to 1425 K.; white heat, 1725 K. and up (11)). Nevertheless, as an extreme example, how ... total values given in assumptions E and F, it follows that the sum of Earth's and Mars' orbital energies was greater than or equal to -21.37, while the sum of Earth's and Mars' orbital angular momenta was equal to 7.18. The orbital energy of a planet must be less than zero, in the sense that a greater energy would cause the planet to escape from the Sun's gravitational field. Zero is thus the extreme limit for the greatest possible orbital energy of Mars. By subtracting this Mars limit of zero from the ...
197. The Cosmic Origin of the Swastika [Aeon Journal $]
... two examples (and there might be more) do serve to stress the link. 3. MARS Despite what was stated in the first section of this paper, there exists some evidence which seems to hint that Adam, which name means "ruddy and/or red," (39) was actually the personification of the red planet Mars rather than Saturn. Later confusion with the primeval Saturn would have arisen because Mars had been part and parcel of the Saturnian configuration. Thus, if Zecharia Sitchin is correct, the Canaanite ... has been thought to be strengthened by a red-figured krater from Apulia which depicts Helios, riding in his celestial chariot, with a swastika emblazoned on his chest. (16) It must be remembered, however, that, originally, Helios was a name of the planet Saturn and not the Sun. (17) In various other ancient depictions, swastikas, and related symbols, are shown radiating from two concentric circles, and this, too, has been seen as validating the emblem's association with the Sun. One, however ...
198. Apollo of the Wolf, the Mouse and the Serpent [Kronos $]
... with the quiver and bow of Apollo hanging from it.(39) If the shafts of Apollo were meteorites, Python would have been pelted and not pierced into extinction. If Mars really approached Earth, as Velikovsky assumed, meteors could conceivably have plummeted from the red planet onto our own.* The Earth would thus have become the target of Apollo's "arrows". It is, therefore, of note that the astronomical symbol for the planet Mars became a globe with an arrow extending from it. It is also interesting ... Apollo, he is seen to replace a series of gods which had formerly been worshipped at the site.(2) These facts, along with material presented below, strongly suggest an astral identity for Apollo other than the Sun. According to Immanuel Velikovsky, the planet Mars first became prominent in the eighth century before the present era; and, following the scenario presented in Worlds in Collision, that planet's series of near collisions with Earth were instrumental in settling the Solar System into its present order. Significantly, it was not ...
199. Stars in an Electric Universe [Aeon Journal $]
... diagram that relates the luminosity of a star to its surface temperature may then be interpreted as a characteristic anode phenomenon associated with the amount and type of matter in the star and the degree and motion of electric stress in the enveloping galactic plasma. For example, the red giant "branch" of the H-R diagram is formed from those stars that are subject to lower el- ectric stress than those on the "Main Sequence." The lower the stress, the bigger and redder the star appears to be. The higher the ... with complex formulae and, at various steps, had written: "Here a miracle occurs." Recent discoveries of filamentary structures in stellar nurseries, stars speeding away from their birthplace and giant planets closely orbiting nearby stars, all highlight serious problems with both star and planet formation theories. Astronomers don't seem to sense the irony when they point to glowing wisps of gas and dust at supernovae shock fronts as star birth regions. Halton Arp observed that heating gas is the best way to disperse it. The gravitational collapse of a GMC ...
