311. Humbaba [Journals] [Kronos]
... as "a sevenfold terror to mortals" with the roaring of a flood-storm. "His mouth is fire, his breath is death."(l ) More than being a giant, Stephen Langdon informs us that Huwawa "is invariably called a god in the texts".(2 ) That Huwawa, or Humbaba, personified a celestial body is evidenced by the fact that his Elamite counterpart, Humba (also Humban, Hanubani, Hamban, Umman, and/or Imbi), appears in a star list with the determinative "mul" (in Babylonian rendered "kakkab") that is reserved for the designation of stars.(3 ) Langdon identified Humbaba, ...
312. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of Venus fell on the first day of the month Thot, for example. It therefore seems to me that the classical astronomical chronology rests on very weak ground, and that there is a need for a very much more careful examination of texts referring to calendars, festivals, Venus and Sirius, in order to ascertain which of these two celestial objects (perhaps both) the Egyptians were really interested in, and how well the accepted astronomical chronology stands up to the test of further research." Following Professor Roy, DR EUAN MACKIE presented a paper on Radiocarbon Dating and Egyptian Chronology. In this, after an introduction to the theory and practice of radiocarbon dating, he presented ...
313. Worlds In Collision And Recent Finds In Astronomy. Ch.17 Supplement (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... concerning the origin of lunar craters. Their size is enormous-nothing comparable is known on earth. According to one theory, these craters are the result of a collision of the moon with very large meterorites, of the size of asteroids; according to the other theory, they are volcanic formations. Both theories assume very violent events in which the celestial body closest to the earth was involved. In Worlds in Collision I offered the following explanation of the lunar craters, as well as of the seas of lava and the rifts on the lunar surface: During the great catastrophes, when the moon together with the terrestrial globe passed through the fabric of a great comet and again when, ...

... chasm, the Valles Marineris; new data on the electrical Sun; and the breakdown of modern cosmology (Big Bang and everything that goes with it). Also, you'll gain many unique insights into the ancient world: the origins of Doomsday anxiety and its relation to calendar systems; global memories of the Golden Age and the fall into celestial chaos; and the ancient New Years celebration, commemorating the renewal of the world after cosmic catastrophe.

315. Velikovsky & Saturnists & the Gods [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... .. unless there were > times when they planets where not as insignificant as they > are now. This one point strikes to the very heart of Velikovskian thinking, and is the major motivation for the Saturn Myth. These notions absolutely require that the behaviour of the gods as described in myth precisely reconstruct the true dynamic behaviour of the celestial objects associated with them. However, the question that Tresman asks is strictly 20th century, and ignores that fact that myths and legends were not created by people who were likely to think anything at all like the way we do. These "mytho-historical" paradigms, like the Saturn Myth, and Velikovsky's "theory" can be immediately ...
316. The AAAS Is Alerted To Act. File II (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... preparation." The second reason for not answering Velikovsky lies in the fact that in order to disprove him even on one point, a full book of fundamentals would have to be written, and existing textbooks serve the purpose and need not be duplicated. In order to demonstrate this, Lafleur chose the field he says he knows the best- celestial mechanics. His third reason why scientists were reluctant to cross pens with me will be stated below. Lafleur correctly observed that in Worlds in Collision "collision" evidently means a "close approach, and not necessarily contact." Then he made this statement: According to celestial mechanics, "after the last collision, whatever it was ...
317. Night of the Gods: Axis Myths [Books]
... . This brings the voyage of the Argo (in the Argonautikon) somewhat abruptly to an end. But the event and the ending may be thought perfectly appropriate' if it be looked upon as a legend of the creation of the Earth by the divine Word. The previous voyage of the Argo would thus be a pre-terrestrian series, of celestial cosmic legends; and if this view be novel, it is not devoid of supports, w [See too what is said of Crete under the head of the Loadstone mountain.] I think no other interpretation of any of these "islands " will suffice, except that which views them all as allegories of the Earth itself. ...
318. The Riddle of Prehistoric Britain [Books]
... Israel (of whom we really know so little), although one, the direct descendants of Atlas, hence Atlanteans, dominated the rest, and whose king or chief ruler was, primus inter pares, an ecclesiastical monarch, a superman, in fact a divinity, regarded by all as a living God, the sole intermediary between the celestial deities and all human flesh. In his hands was all ecclesiastical and temporal power, and this theocrat, arch-magus, or, as described, "His Anointed", was the most absolute despot the world has ever known, for he controlled not only the bodies but the minds of all from the highest to the lowest. All ...
319. Chapter V: the Yearly Path of the Sun-god [Books]
... the case of a star, as we have north latitude or south latitude in case of a place on the earth. With regard to the other co-ordinate, we can also say that the heavenly body whose place we are anxious to determine is at a certain distance from our first point of measurement, whatever that may be, along the celestial equator. Speaking of heavenly bodies, we call this distance right ascension; dealing with matters earthy, we measure from the meridian of Greenwich and call the distance longitude. The movement of the earth round the sun is in a plane which is called the plane of the ecliptic, and- the axis of rotation of the earth is ...

... , Dr. Michelson, or has this been published previously? The, the kinetic energy of rotation being equal to one-half the hypothetical electrical potential energy? MICHELSON: No, this, this has not been published, no. BASS: This is your work? MICHELSON: Yes. BASS: Uh-huh. All right, speaking as a celestial mechanician, purely gravitational. I have always thought that the hypothetical electro-magnetic forces in the solar system were of tertiary importance, but I feel that you have brilliantly demonstrated the opposite and made me change my mind. And I'm, I'm trying to understand the formula, and I have a question here. I think I can understand it ...
