... " 6 Teo- place or god To support his diffusionist claim, Sagan asks,'...how, for example, would Velikovsky explain the fact that the Toltec name for god' seems to have been teo, as in the great city of Teotihuacan (City of the gods)...? There is no common celestial event that could conceivably explain this concordance .. .teo is a clear cognate of the common Indo-European root for god." '7 This is most interesting because in their book of Nahuatl symbols C. McGowan and P. Van Nice, The Identification and Interpretation of Name and Place Glyph of the Xolotl Codes, (1984) ...
202. Discussion Questions From the Floor [Journals] [Aeon]
... flux between the two highly probable; based upon tide raising properties (on Neptune) of Triton. 3) An underestimation of the Neptunian field strength is more probable than an error in overestimating it. If Neptune has a solid core with a cool ferromagnetic crust there will be some residual magnetism from the last "close encounter" with a celestial body. This will be additive to any ongoing effect of Triton (as is the case with Earth, and probably Uranus). 4) An underestimation of the Neptunian field strength is also made likely by the possibility of some atmospheric super conductor properties, coupled with convection resulting from Triton's tidal activities. In general, it is illogical ...
203. The Methodology of Patten's Martian Scenario [Journals] [Aeon]
... 1944 B.C .; and the Sodom and Gomorrah catastrophe in 1889 B.C . (3 ) A new set of catastrophes have also been added and these Patten has labelled somewhat whimsically in an effort to inject his work with a light sense of humor. Thus, following Joshua's long day, we now have "Sisera' celestial centennial" in 1296 B.C .; "Gideon's midnight bash" in 1241 B.C .; and the "Philistine phalanx" in 1080 B.C . Following the Davidic catastrophe we now have "the Mount Carmel barbecue" in 864 B.C . and "the Greek picnic on Trojan shores" in 809 ...

Wal Thornhill- ASTRONOMY AS ART By Amy Acheson Ptolemy's mathematical epicycles were an effort to explain the celestial order as he saw it in terms of the "divine perfect circles" of his mythical/religious heritage. Copernicus' new viewpoint was based on the same assumption that there is something sacred about "celestial spheres". He tossed out Ptolemy's math and painted a new picture using a concept he imagined would replace the cumbersome epicycles with ...
205. Electro-Gravitic Theory (Forum) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2001:2 (Jan 2002) Home | Issue Contents Forum Electro-Gravitic Theory Charles Ginenthal responds to Crew review Having read Eric Crew's review of my Electro-Gravitic Theory of Celestial Motion and Cosmology (C &CR 2001:1 pp. 56-57), I'm sorry he saw little value in it. However he didn't get the nature of the electro-magnetic mechanism correct: I was writing about emitting antennas with radial and tangential magnetic fields, which is a well known aspect of radio engineering. In deciding that celestial bodies were like solenoids rather than antennas, Eric misrepresented my work. The Appendix he mentioned left out the most important fact in the book ...
206. The Periodic Cyclicism Of Ancient Catastrophes [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... Jupiter. The 17th day of Marchesvan on the Old Tishri calendar, when Noah's flood began, was our modern calendar date of October 24 (Sept. 7+ 30+ 17). There are three other items of evidence that agree with the October 24 date for ancient planetary flybys. One is the Roman Armilustrium, the second Roman celestial fear day. It was toward the end of the eighth month, October, named after the Latin number for eight. Ancient calendars were revised when the Earth's orbit shifted from a 360-day year to a 365 +-day year and that was a time of considerable calendar confusion. Our conclusion is that the Armilustrium, the second Roman day of ...
... who is himself called "the hidden Ocean" (RV 8.41.8 ). Varuna states about himself: "I fastened the sky to the seat of the Rita" (RV 4.42.2 ). And at that "seat of Rita" we find Svarnara, said to be "the name of the celestial spring. . . which Soma selected as his dwelling [n5 See H. Luders, Varuna, vol. 2: Varuna und das Rita (1959), pp. 396-401 (RV 4.21.3 ; 8.6 .39; 8.65.2f.; 9.70.6 ). Soma ...
... that, unless it were replenished from reservoirs somewhere else, this world of ours would go dry, and that, therefore, we must visualise a frequent transmission of new atmospherics injected or projected, by what, for want of a better term, we must call Divine Intervention, into this sphere. I might term it the fruits of celestial intercourse. Much of it may seem an indiscriminate, fluky, promiscuous intercourse. A tree or plant, flowers, beans, seeds, some fall upon fertile soil but most do not, yet in the end the tree or plant fulfils its destiny. So presumably a world. Once a world is created, and Nature is sufficiently ...
209. Weinert's Hypothesis [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 4 No 1 (Jul 1981) Home | Issue Contents Weinert's Hypothesis Frederick B. Jueneman This past spring, George F. Weinert, a senior at Seneca Valley High School in Germantown, MD, became a semi-finalist in the annual Westinghouse Science Talent Search competition with a mathematical paper on celestial dynamics. This paper is an excellent, thoroughgoing effort to explore the perturbating effects of a planetary near-encounter. What makes it particularly remarkable is that the basic premise is drawn from Velikovsky's WORLDS IN COLLISION in conjunction with the Biblical account of the Exodus - an account which, in part, Velikovsky himself had used when he constructed his cosmological scenario of catastrophe in ...

... examining. Open questions abounded during the proceedings: Is the radioactive decay "constant" really constant? (Most likely not, according to Dr. John Lynde Anderson.) Could planetary orbits have reversed their order of distance from the Sun in historical times? (Yes, if you are listening to Prof. Robert W. Bass, celestial mechanician.) Do the megalithic monuments in the United Kingdom bespeak catastrophes or uniformitarianism? (More research is needed, says Scotland's Dr. Euan MacKie.) Do the ancient Mesoamerican civilizations and folklore show evidence of Velikovskian catastrophes? (The case is good, claims Dr. William Mullen.) "Catastrophism has in recent years emerged ...
