... show examples of fretting, circular scalloped craters, furrows as on the moon Europa [eg see www.jpl.nasa.gov/galileo/moons/europa.html, which do not appear to be cracks in the ice. Indeed, Europa has some very unusual features, such as parallel cycloid patterns which would seem to indicate electrical activity. Venus also appears to be covered with electrical scars. The valley, Baltis Vallis is a 6800km rille of continuous width, and with signs of levied banks. There also appears to be a fulgamite (not fulgurite) scar, which has a characteristic raised mound. 'Fulgamite was coined by R. D. Hill in an article, "Determination of Charges Conducted in Lightning Strokes", in the Journal of Geophysical Research, Vol. 68, No. 5, p. 1365 (1 Mar 1963). Mars' Tharsis Tholus is an example of an electrical fulgamite scar. Mars also features fretted terrain, such as Labyrinthus Noctis which shows no signs of fluid flow, nor debris, and also shows overlapping circular pits. Nirgal Vallis is ...

... symmetry irrespective of the number of streamers present. So what appears most artificial in the reconstruction of the Saturn theory turns out to be condition PREDICTED by plasma physics. Mind boggling. Let me give one other example of linkage between the historical argument and plasma physics. Perhaps ten years ago I first noticed an interesting mythical theme I designated the 'scarface motif'. It is actually quite common: the warrior-hero running amok, only to be struck down by a heaven-shattering thunderbolt or other weapon, then emerging from the episode with a great scar on his cheek, his forehead, or his thigh. Well, it struck me when looking at a picture of Mars, that even in a small photo the continental-scale chasm on Mars- the Valles Marineris- looks like a giant scar. And I realized that any electrical discharge capable of carving out such a chasm would throw an immense amount of rock into surrounding space, and this could explain the swarming meteoric retinue of the hero (Velikovsky's Maruts), while explaining as well why the ancients declared so consistently that meteorites ...

We do so because in the sciences the inertia of prior beliefs has excluded questions that now demand open-minded consideration. Scientific inquiry flourished on a ground of skepticism about ancient “magic and superstition”. It seemed obvious that primitive mythology and religion could only obstruct the quest for knowledge. But now a new possibility has emerged — the possibility that even the most “irrational” myths hold a key to planetary history. According to David Talbott and Wallace Thornhill, the mythic “thunderbolts of ...

4. Victoria Crater on Mars [Thunderbolts Website]
... the original causative event. When questions of theory and interpretation arise, the most compelling answer will be the one that is based on observational fact and can account for essential features left unexplained by alternatives. Electric Universe proponent Wallace Thornhill has recently examined NASA ’ s reports on Victoria crater. His analysis is based on practical laboratory experiments with electrical discharge, particularly the effects of an electric arc on a positively charged surface – the “anode” in a discharge event. Thornhill states, “Victoria crater appears to be a short-duration anode scar, or ‘ spark ’ crater, where melting is insignificant. In laboratory experiments it is found that the anode spark scar on a ‘ contaminated ’ surface develops many arc ‘ spots ’ at the center of a roughly circular scar. In a very short time the central arc spots move out to form a ring. The spots enlarge and join into a ring. For a time the entire arc current passes through the annular ring. If it were to continue, melting would occur, obliterating the fine scalloped structure of the ...

5. Libya's Kebira Crater [Thunderbolts Website]
... ? Scientists suggest that a meteorite impact millions of years ago is the cause of the giant crater imaged above. Recently discovered in satellite images of the area, the crater lies in Egypt's western desert. It is some 19 miles (31kilometers) wide and is said to be the impact site of a meteoric intruder perhaps three-fourths of a mile (1.2 kilometers) in diameter. The crater itself is more than 25 times the size of Arizona's famous Meteor Crater. But over time, erosion by wind and water largely obscured the ancient scar. One intriguing aspect of the discovery is its close association with a mysterious field of yellow-green glass, broken into large chunks, littering the dunes in the Great Sand Sea of southwestern Egypt. The first report of the yellow-green “desert glass” came from Patrick Clayton in 1932, following his excursion through the Saad Plateau near the Kebira Crater site. At the time, the origin of the glass was unknown: There was no evidence of geological forces that could have melted the silica sand into glass. With Kebira ’ s ...

... Thunderbolts Group. More Information Book Synopsis Read Chapter One Order Link Mar 10, 2006 Lunar Craters — a Failed Theory (2) The Puzzles of Aristarchus The crater Aristarchus, pictured above, stands out in all Earth-based telescopic images of the Moon. Of the larger formations on the Moon, this rayed crater is considered the brightest. It is also distinguished from its surroundings by its elevation on a rocky plateau rising more than 2 kilometers above the dark “mare” of Oceanus Procellarum. For context, we have circled the Aristarchus scar on the Hubble image (large) placed here. In the Hubble image we see the crater Tycho, a subject of our previous submission, dominating the southern face of the Moon. Well to the north of Tycho is the second most dramatic feature of the Moon, the impressive spidery scar of Aristarchus, covering a much greater area than one might suspect from close-up images of the crater itself. For further context, a darker image we have placed here shows the relationship of the crater itself to the extended filamentary “rays ...

7. A RECENTLY DISCOVERED "BOOK" OF PETROGLYPHS [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 20: Mar-Apr 1982 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects A RECENTLY DISCOVERED "BOOK" OF PETROGLYPHS Unfortunately, we cannot reproduce this huge assemblage of marvelously intricate petroglyphs here; but be assured that they are not haphazard doodlings of unaccomplished primitives. We quote from the author's abstract: "A recently discovered sheltered rock scar with red pictographs, in Jalisco, west Mexico, is a major addition to the rather meager data on pictographs in Mesoamerica. It appears to contain a complex set of data pertaining to the cosmology of the relatively unknown Indians who inhabited the Jalisco coast during the last Pre-Hispanic period. Analysis of the scar has incorporated both the artistic symbolism of the nearby Huichol Indians, and concepts developed through archaeoastronomy. This analysis suggests that the ceiling pictographs record the use of sky transits of the sun, Venus, or the constellation Orion as wet season/dry season calendric markers. Wall pictographs show the sun on the mountainous horizon, below which is the earth filled with ...

9. Our Universe: Unlocking its Mysteries [SIS Internet Digest $]
... 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 tiny speck in the sky today; and its deep, 2,400 mile-long canyon (scar), Valles Marineris, cannot be seen from Earth without a powerful telescope. Thunderbolts Between Planets: The myths of many of the ancients tell of violent thunderbolt interaction between the gods. Of course we see lightning on earth today, but never "thunderbolts" that streak between planets. What could have caused these violent interactions long ago? The Ancient Record: Why do pictographs show what is commonly considered to be the sun as a huge disc with a smaller one in the center, often with rays flowing out of it ...
