41. Comparing Magnetic Fields: Neptune and Uranus [The Velikovskian $]
... past several years, I have been looking for a celestial body that would flatly and unequivocally contradict the theory. I felt that even one celestial body or set of bodies that acted completely contrary to what the theory required would doom the counterforce concept. For example, red dwarf stars have very weak magnetic fields and Electro-Gravitic theory requires that they must rotate slowly; so the discovery of just such a star spinning rapidly was stunning. In Astronomy, Ken Crosswell describes a red dwarf named Gliese 890: "All single red dwarfs in ... in how several findings, contradictory to the theory, were made to fit the dynamo hypothesis. For example, most dynamo theorists expected that Mercury, which rotates on its axis in about 58.6 days --which is quite slow, and is a massively small, internally cold planet --would not possess any magnetic field whatsoever. Clark R. Chapman explains, Perhaps most surprising of all was the discovery that Mercury has a dipole field, resembling a weak version of our own planet's magnetic field. This was unexpected because scientists had a prejudice that ...
42. Antiquated Textbooks: Redesigning the Solar System [Aeon Journal $]
... during the history of Mars." [53 The once-popular canals were not found, but "hundreds of ancient channels apparently carved by flowing water" were discovered. [54 Not only rivers, but an entire ocean is believed by some to have once covered the red planet. It was estimated that "one-fifth of the planet's surface may have been covered by an ocean more than 2,000 feet deep..." [55 But then the ocean disappeared-- not through a cataclysmic event, but through the diligence ... of Velikovsky's old detractors, it seems somewhat ironic that, in 1969-- nineteen years after the publication of Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision-- he had to admit that astronomers have had to redesign the Solar System. [4 Even back then, hardly a single planet had retained the same identity it once enjoyed as, one by one, the discoveries of the Space Age altered what had been believed to be the well-known characteristics of each. Mercury Mercury, for instance, had been well-known to move in such a way that ...
43. On Dragons and Red Dwarves [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon III:6 (Dec 1994) Home¦ Issue Contents On Dragons and Red Dwarves Ev Cochrane For countless millennia the campfire served as meeting place and center stage alike as bards entertained their audiences with thrilling tales of dashing heroes. During this period every tribal community had, as it were, its own Homer who, reciting from an iron-clad memory, related the trials and tribulations of the favorite hero, replete with dragon-combats and the rescue of maidens in distress. Held in the highest esteem, these ancient bards ... the wholesale destruction of countless cultures and their sacred traditions, it is still possible to reconstruct the basic events behind the myth of the dragon-combat. That those events were celestial in nature there can be little doubt. And as the celestial prototype for the warrior-hero, the planet Mars figures prominently in numerous ancient myths of the dragon-combat. Indeed, it is the hero's identity with Mars which alone provides the rationale for many of the most bizarre elements of the myth. The following essay is an exercise in comparative mythology, and as such ...
44. Stability of Solid Cores in Gaseous Planets [Kronos $]
... the atmosphere and leaving a scar which may still be visible. A significant comment in relation to this view was made recently by an authority on planetary atmospheres(2) who wrote that "on Jupiter, a steady-state storm is possible.... The Great Red Spot may also fit into this picture. It is difficult at this stage to account for its uniqueness, which may be associated with some unseen surface irregularity or the result of a chance capture of a planetary body." This is evidently a wild guess, ... From: Kronos Vol. III No. 1 (Fall 1977) Home¦ Issue Contents Stability of Solid Cores in Gaseous Planets Eric W. Crew If an imaginary planet made of uniform material has a diametrical hole through it and the weight of an object is measured at various points along the hole, the weight will decrease with distance below the surface of the planet until it becomes zero at the center. This happens because the gravitational pull of the shell of material above any level inside the body sums to zero, and ...

This is particularly so of Velikovsky's cosmic catastrophism which featured the planet Venus on a cometary orbit, the planet Mars on an erratic orbit, and Venus, Mars, the Earth and the Moon having near-miss contacts with each other. Mainstream astronomers have repeatedly rejected these ideas and in the strongest possible terms. They have described his ...

... burning. The gamut of sounds was dinned into human ears, at deafening amplitudes. The encounter lasted for weeks because of the temporary roughly parallel course of the two bodies and because of the enormous train of the cometary Venus. It began with a worldwide plague of red dust. The experience became increasingly excruciating as the Earth moved deeper through the millions of miles of comet tail. At the height of the disturbances, the incandescent head of the comet penetrated the smoking skies of the globe in all of its ruddy immensity. The ... For nearly a thousand years it raged through the heavens periodically, encountering first Earth, then Mars; then Jupiter; then Mars again. It periodically-- every half century-- threatened the Earth and sometimes repeated, less harshly, its first devastation of the planet. The age of Venusia lasted from about 1450 to 700 B. C. endured, that is, until the comet Venus lost its cometary appendages and became a hot, young planet circling the Sun for all the world like an ordinary planet is supposed to ...
47. The Afar Triangle As the Nether Reaches of Eden and Babel [Aeon Journal $]
... Afar Triangle was once overlain by the southwestern portion of the Arabian peninsula-- namely, the western parts of Yemen and South Yemen (including Aden, the capital of South Yemen). Subsequently, Arabia separated from Africa, forming the Gulf of Aden and the Red Sea, and exposing the Afar Triangle to the light of day. Immanuel Velikovsky's identification of "Aden" and Eden has been widely known among his supporters for some time, though his short written comments on the location of Eden have long remained unpublished. ( ... at the same time a balancing outflow of material from the far side of the companion. In other words, the companion might be somewhat more ovoid than ellipsoid. But we need not look to the far-away stars. We can look to the history of our own planet. Pangaea, if it really existed, would strongly suggest that there was indeed some unknown force treating the two sides of Earth in radically different ways. How else could all the land be gathered together in one hemisphere, and the other hemisphere be covered entirely ...
48. Venus -- A Youthful Planet [Kronos $]
... about the birth of comets. These comets moved across the orbits of other planets and collided with them. At least one of these comets in historical times became a planet-- Venus." In such near-collisions, eruptive forces could exceed escape velocities, and the red spot on Jupiter could conceivably be the locus of a major eruption. For the thesis that Venus erupted from Jupiter in historical times and went through a series of stormy events before settling on an orbit, the natural sciences must possess independent evidence. Such events theoretically ...

But these few glimpses do not begin to tell the larger story of the Red Planet. A unified portrait of Mars is possible. Only a fundamental change in vantage point is required.

... close contacts with Earth. What was its nature? Dr Velikovsky noted that it was a soluble pigment: "In sea, lake and river this pigment gave a bloody colouring to the water. These particles of ferruginous or other soluble pigment caused the world to turn red."(5) Moreover, the accounts of Exodus 7:24 and of Ipuwer's lamentations agree that this bloody coloured water was unpleasant and maybe poisonous. It is recorded of the Nile that "the river stank" (Exodus 7:21). ... SIS Workshop Vol 4 No 1 (Jul 1981) Home¦ Issue Contents Falls of Blood from Venus Bernard Newgrosh Dr Velikovsky has produced numerous citations from ancient sources to show how falls of a blood-like substance occurred when a "new" comet (later to become the planet Venus) came into catastrophic contact with the Earth:(1) the Manuscript Quiche of the Maya, the so-called Papyrus Ipuwer from Egypt and the Book of Exodus all record the fact that the water in the rivers was turned into "blood".
