81. Return to the Paelo-Saturnian Ssystem (Forum) [Aeon Journal $]
... Qayin? Sheth? In my understanding, there is no religious reason for rejecting the possibility that the characters of Adam and Hawwah were inspired by Mars and Venus. However, there are a few practical ones. The name "Adam" is connected to adom (red) only so far as the word for soil and ground (earth) happens to be adama. Adam was only named such because he was formed of 'afar min-ha-adama-- that is "the dust of the earth (or ground"). The reason ... history did the planets loom large in the sky? Until when did they produce memorable phenomena? Cardona also mentions "this celestial ring or enclosure, which is spoken of in the mythologies of various ancient nations [referring to the band that was seen to surround the planet Saturn during the Golden Age." [44 Is this an allusion to Saturn's ring(s)? If not, what was it? Finally (at least as far as this section is concerned), I would like to correct something else that Cardona ...
82. Snowball Mini-comets [SIS Internet Digest $]
... alternative "reasonable explanation" for the ionospheric dayglow holes which does not require cometary impacts. The hypothesis is a logical extension of my paper of 1993 (1) which provided a model to explain another mysterious earthly phenomena, this time in the realm of lightning- red sprites and blue jets. There were reports in 1990 of low-light TV cameras capturing discharges, later dubbed "blue jets", originating 14km above the Earth over storm clouds, rising like fountains another 20km into the stratosphere. There followed a report, published in ... last year, when it caused arcing and burned through the tether. In the New Scientist of 31 May, p.18, there is a news item, "Planet's tail of the unexpected", which, un-noticed, provides direct confirmation of electric currents flowing between a planet and its surroundings. The "stringy things" detected near the Earth and causing such puzzlement can only be "Birkeland currents" which alone are capable of maintaining narrow plasma filaments over vast distances. It is the only force free configuration for a current carrying plasma ...
83. When Dust Storms Engulf Mars [Thunderbolts Website]
... dust storms on Mars have meteorologists scrambling for explanations. Is it solar heating, or electricity, that powers these storms in the near vacuum of the Martian atmosphere? The spacecraft Mariner 9 was the first probe to orbit the planet Mars. As it arrived at the Red Planet in 1971, NASA scientists were shocked by the view — the most horrific dust storm they had ever seen. The entire planet was engulfed in a deep haze, with only the peak of gigantic Olympus Mons penetrating through the clouds. For several decades, ...

84. The Archangels [Kronos $]
... ? We have already noted that Michael was not the destroyer during the Exodus. Was Gabriel? O'Gheoghan believed so: "It might be added that Gabriel was the destructive force in the Exodus catastrophe: it was he who was eager to drown the Egyptians at the Red Sea, and he who kept the waters of the Red Sea from drowning Israel."(46) Nevertheless, "eager to drown" is not the same as "drowning". Nowhere is it stated that Gabriel succumbed to his eagerness. Keeping the ... it is stated that it was the archangel Gabriel who "with his little finger.... touched the rock whereon the sinful cities were built, and overturned them".(9) Though O'Gheoghan reminded his readers that Gabriel had already been identified with the planet Mars, he did not follow this lead. That he did not was due to his having favored Venus as the agent of destruction concerning which, he informed us, there seems to be "adequate evidence".(10) Let us, temporarily, ...

... it is offered only as a statement of fact. 19 SPOT If Jupiter ejected a large object, this would lead one reasonably to expect that a structural defect would bea fault in the planet. Velikovsky suggests that one of the most prominent characteristics of Jupiter, its red spot, is an atmospheric effect related to the scar where Venus was ejected. Hide has suggested that the red spot could be the result of an anomaly in the structure of Jupiter, and that the disturbance this creates manifests itself in the heavy cloud layer at ... firmly believed that all the planets were formed in their present orbits; rnanv of them ridiculed Velikovsky for suggesting otherwise. However, bv 1960 W. H. McCrea, who at the time was President of the Roval Astronomical Society, published a theoretical argument that no planet could originally have formed from a solar nebula any closer to the Sun than the orbit of,Jupiter. 1 Later J. G. Hills attempted to show that no planet could initially have formed outside the orbit of' Saturn. 2 Between the appearances of ...
86. The Electric Saturnian System [Aeon Journal $]
... , tell us which astronomers have gone on record with such a statement? Thornhill: In a 1999 New Scientist article there is a discussion of a report from the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, of June that same year, concerning computer simulations of a red giant star swallowing planets. [2 Surprisingly, they found that a large planet continues to orbit inside the star for thousands of years, only slowly being evaporated by the heat. As it was stated there: "You have to keep in mind that these ... are super-tenuous gas balls with their matter smeared over an absolutely huge volume. Their outer regions are as rarefied as what we would consider a good vacuum on Earth." [3 Of course, the electric star model does not have any internal heat source to slowly evaporate a planet orbiting "inside" the star. And since the phenomenon of a star's redness is directly related to the electric stress impinging on the star, the same argument would apply to a red (or brown) dwarf star and small planets and moons as ...

... male and intimately associated with war, disaster and pestilence. Mars was the warrior-hero par excellence, with Heracles, Nergal and Verethragna- the leading heroes of Greece, Mesopotamia and Iran- each being identified with the planet Mars. Other figures we would identify with the red planet include Apollo, Horus, Indra, Thor, Tezcatlipoca, Shu, Reseph, Rudra, Ares and the Latin Mars [4. Whilst the mythical roles of Venus and Mars are vaguely familiar to orthodox archaeoastronomers [5, Saturn's former prominence has remained a ...

... object (which later became the planet Venus) was ejected from Jupiter. (6) Around 1450 B.C., as Moses prepared to lead the Israelites out of Egypt, this comet approached the earth. Earth passed through the comet's tail, receiving a fall of red meteorite dust which made rivers and seas appear to turn to blood. Then ash-like dust, burning meteorites, and petroleum rained down upon terror-stricken nations. Fires raged everywhere. (7) As the earth plunged more deeply into the tail and approached the comet's head ... land; mountain-high tidal waves destroy continents and change the earth's topography. A science fiction plot? Not according to many authors who have presented a similar scenario as historical fact over the years. A supposed collision or near-collision between earth and an asteroid, comet, or planet in ancient times has been used variously as the explanation for the destruction of Atlantis (2), the Deluge recorded in Genesis (3), or the miraculous events connected with the Israelite Exodus from Egypt. (4) Immanuel Velikovsky has provided the most ...
89. The Origins of the Latin God Mars [SIS C&C Review $]
... hot springs is all that comes to mind [42. How then are we to account for their identification? The ultimate basis of the identification of Heracles and Mars, in my opinion, is their common identity with the planet Mars, that of Heracles with the red planet being widespread in Hellenistic times [43. Nergal's identification with the Greek strongman has only recently come to light, being first documented by H. Seyrig, who drew attention to the numerous features shared by the two gods in ancient iconography [44. Babylonian ... too, it would appear, there is a certain parallel with the cult of Nergal, who appears among a list of oracle gods in a text dating to the reign of Nabonidus [38. Finally, mention must be made of the identification of Nergal with the planet Mars in Babylonian astronomical texts [39. This identification, according to Weiher, traces to Old Babylonian times and is apparent in all periods of the god's cult [40. That this characteristic likewise finds a precise parallel in the case of the Latin Mars is ...

... No. 2, May 1972, p. 41), and supported the idea with cogent arguments and remarks, that the Egyptian god Aten, depicted for all the world like a comet, was indeed comet Venus; and Aten was sometimes portrayed as a bright red globe (" disk"). These descriptions and representations suggest that comet Venus, at least toward the end of its days, could have been large enough in terms of the electrical demands of its environment that its ruddy sheath did not break down to form ... me begin with the "Coup de Grâce" issue of surface relief on Venus as an indication that internal energy is not a major contributor to the high surface temperature. Juergens (IV, 71-74) has confused this argument with my discussion of thermal evolution of the planet, and as a result his criticisms are off base. The argument from surface relief is independent of any assumptions concerning the past history of the planet; its strength lies in its ability to define an upper limit on heat conducted from the interior today.
