26. Science Frontiers 1977-1978 [Catastrophism Geology $]
... some astronomical structures (perhaps not matter itself) seem to grow faster than the velocity of light. (Cohen, M.H., et al; "Radio Sources with Superluminal Velocities, "Nature, 268AO5-410, 1977.) SUN-EARTH-MOON SYSTEM MAY NOT BE STABLE The application of zero-velocity surfaces (a mathematical technique) to the Sun-Earth-Moon three-body system indicates that the eccentricity of the earth's orbit renders the system unstable. The conclusion is that the moon may one day escape the earth and become a planet and, vice versa, that the origin of the moon by capture is a strong possibility. [This paper is typical of several recent papers in celestial mechanics that throw doubt on long-held dogmas about the long-term stability of the solar system.( Szebehely, V., and McKenzie, R.; "Stability of the Sun-Earth-Moon System", Astronomical Journal, 82:303-305, 1977). CHANGES IN SOLAR ROTATION John A. Eddy has continued his historical studies of sunspots from the earliest records to date. Analysis of spot drawings suggest that between 1625 and 1645 ...
27. THE LATELY TORTURED EARTH: PART V: RIFTS, RAFTS AND BASINS: 24.Continental Tropism and Rafting [Quantavolution Website]
... the Atlantic Basin opened up at the end of the Cretaceous period or in the early Tertiary. Thus an impasse occurred until the present day. Wegener's continental drift theory is accepted but not its cause. Instead geologists cling to their terrestrial ideology and posit convection currents. The effects of ripping some 50 kilometers in depth off of most of the Earth's surface were conjectured to be utterly destructive of the biosphere. Today much new geological and geophysical evidence can be adduced from an examination of the Earth and Moon, tending to support the terrestrial origin of the Moon and the connection between lunagenesis and continental break-up and movement. Moreover, the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary is increasingly understood to mark the extermination of most species. Whether this boundary happened at sixty million years or twelve thousand years ago (which I construe to be the case) does not much matter on the issue of biosphere survival. I have pointed out elsewhere that biosphere annihilation was not necessarily predicated during lunagenesis. The immense typhoon that conveyed the crust of the Earth into space would have carried away with it most of the ...

29. Pleiongaea: A Myth for all Seasons [Aeon Journal $]
... demonstrate how the mind works its deviousness, I've personally slept or wool-gathered through many a seminar which either couldn't hold my attention or mangled the subject matter. At such times one can unashamedly catch forty winks or perhaps privately enjoy a game of associating random ideas that have little to do with the subject under discussion. Anyway, there was a conference in October of 1984 on the big isle of Hawaii, through which I would have liked to have dozed. It purportedly was convened to re-examine the burning topic on everyone's mind: The origin of the Moon. But, alas, as with most such colloquia which have a tendency to reinvent the wheel, no real consensus came out of this one, save a jockeying for position. There are perhaps four major hypotheses that attempt to explain the presence of our lunar neighbor: Fission, capture, condensation, and impact. The fission hypothesis was championed, if not initiated, in 1898 by George Howard Darwin-- second son of the illustrious Charles-- who diverged from his father's approach to gradualism by proposing ...

Russell is a Texan researcher who has long been following the chronological debate about ancient history. He is also interested in how the ancient chronology conforms with retrocalculated astronomical data of lunar and solar eclipses. Alice Miller is a researcher of all material published on Velikovsky's research, has written several rebuttals to criticisms leveled against it and has published an annotated volume, the Velikovsky Bibliography. She lives in San Francisco and is currently planning to publish Gordon Atwater's memoir of the events that led to his dismissal ...
