... king of the Pontic Empire, had a comet depicted on his coins (as did, incidentally, Caesar on the coins that were minted during his time) because in the year of his birth, 134 B.C ., and again in the year 118 B.C ., a comet appeared. According to ancient accounts both celestial apparitions covered one fourth of the sky with their tails.(3 ) A comet was represented as a star with a distinctly elongated ray structure; this practice is observable as extending from an early dynastic cylinder seal (Fig. 1) - this being perhaps the first example, though one which until now was not identified as such ...

212. Thoth Vol I, No. 10: April 22, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... Nietzsche- SATURN: THE ANCIENT SUN GOD By David Talbott (dtalbott@teleport.com) Many threads of Greek and Roman astronomy appear to lead back to a priestly astronomy arising in Mesopotamia some time in the first millennium B.C . The Babylonians were apparently the first to develop systematic observations of the planets, and they recorded the celestial motions with considerable skill. But in laying the foundations of later astronomy, they also preserved a crucial link with the past. Again and again they asserted a claim that could only appear preposterous to the modern translator. They declared that the distant planets were the *gods* of former times. Sumerian myths, we noted earlier, ...

... of the solar system and of ancient history that has not had to be drastically revised during the last two decades. II Despite the success of Velikovsky's theory, one continues to hear objections of the same sort that were advanced when the theory was first proposed. Perhaps the most frequently expressed objection is that Velikovsky's theory violates the laws of "celestial mechanics," that it overthrows Newton's theory of gravitation, that it is dynamically impossible. Usually this attitude is traceable to a merely hearsay grasp of what Velikovsky has written. One of the earliest statements of this objection was made in a letter to Horace Kallen, on May 27, 1946, by Harlow Shapley, then Director of ...

216. The Ring About The Earth at 2300 BC [Journals] [SIS Review]
... interpretation of the mythology is a possible viable alternative to other current interpretations. Since the ring was observable everywhere on the Earth's surface, it would be expected that it would be described by all cultures - and it was. Most commonly, it was described as a circle of flowing water. I have also found 24 interpretations, including a celestial mountain, a serpent holding its tail in its mouth, a time regulator, a chariot wheel and a set of horns. This paper primarily addresses the flowing water. The water interpretation could have been due to two possible factors. The first is related to unevenness in the structure and density of the ring: since the material would ...

... . Yet when we make predictions about still unknown future events, the theories behind the predictions are then put to the test." (1 ) Scientific theories are very often produced by arranging facts to fit a new insight and thus prediction is also basic to determining the validity of the theory. How should one develop a new theory of celestial motion? Hoyle states elsewhere that the rules of the structure of modern particle physics are the same as finding the rules for celestial motion. "In both these cases, separated in our science by many centuries, the procedure is the same- first find the empirical fact, then find the systematic regularities, then find the reason for ...

... of planetary bodies could have produced evolution depends, of course, on whether it is physically possible for such bodies to collide in the manner described. The first impression of nearly every physicist is that this is precluded by the known laws of physics.30 Velikovsky maintains, however, that non-standard orbits are possibly acceptable within the framework of conventional celestial mechanics, and hence, present no insuperable difficulties. True, there are still unsolved problems, but these are to.:be found several layers beneath the surface.31 As we probe deeper it seems that most opposition among skeptics of the idea that planets could come close together lies in several assumptions of classical Newtonian physics which themselves ...

... find it more convenient to formulate their observations in terms of events rather than locations in space and actions in time separately. if events are necessarily unfolded in space and time, this is also true of divine events, the central subject of every religion. Catastrophes, as divine events, were experienced as alterations of space and time. The celestial bodies by which time is marked changed their courses, and therefore the units of time were altered; simultaneously, the face of the earth, the space in which we live, was transformed. The religious reaction to this kind of divine event is in almost all cases to see an imperative in it. The divinity, through reshaping ...

One of the greatest problems, and this is the second prejudice that, according to Matthews, has to be purged, is that for the last two hundred years we have lived with a Newtonian mind-set in which the skies are considered to be safe because the cosmos is thought to function like clockwork ...
