321. Reply to Earl Milton [Journals] [Aeon]
... ? I raised a similar point in KRONOS and have never received an answer. (4 ) To these considerations must be added the evidence published by Danjon (5 ) and by Gribbin and Plagemann (6 ) indicating that the Earth's rotation was slowed by strong solar flares and thereafter sped up again after these glitches. If Coulomb's law rules celestial motion, why did solar flares slow the Earth's rotation? And since gravity could not have sped up the rotation afterwards, what did? From such anomalies as this I have concluded that electromagnetic interactions between the Sun and the Earth can accelerate the rotation of the Earth. If I have not "faced up to" Coulomb's law, ...
... ; the Correspondence Principle' and its applicability to the halo symbols of the First Twelfth and to the Winged Figures; the relation of the pedestals to the amplitude; the purpose of the Trumpeters in showing the lengths of the aphelion and perihelion parts of the year; the Temple indications; the tentative solution of the Puma Punku Calendar; the celestial connotation of the design of the Map' of Ttahua-ntin-suyu; and many minor matters. He is responsible, also, for the chapters on the Compensations for the Discrepancies', The Elements on the Bodies of the Puma-faced Fishes', and the Tiahuanacan Time Scale'. Finally, Allan was instrumental in finding the solution of the Winged ...
323. The Birth of Athena [Journals] [Aeon]
... , is the question as to whether Velikovsky's hypothesis of a comet-like Athena/Venus is supported by ancient mythology. Until recently this question had scarcely been addressed. (14) It goes without saying, however, that if Velikovsky's reconstruction of the events surrounding the birth of Athena is valid other cultures can hardly have failed to witness the same celestial events and thus one might expect to find confirmation of Venus' "infancy" and cometary past in the mythology of other peoples, particularly in the traditions surrounding the great goddesses. Despite repeated claims to the contrary, there is mounting evidence that Velikovsky may have been on the right track after all. (15) We seek at ...
324. The Hamon-Gabriel-Mars Connection (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... derived, knowing the latitude of only a single point on the Earth's surface (other than one of the poles) is not sufficient to determine the location of the north geographic pole. Dr. Rose now states (KRONOS VIII:2 note, p. 85) that if we also know the "placement . . . Of the celestial equator among the stars", then "that is sufficient". But I'm afraid it isn't. Of course, the celestial poles and equator are merely projections of the terrestrial poles and equator onto the imaginary celestial sphere, but their orientation with respect to the fixed stars and with respect to the surface features of the Earth are two ...
325. The Uranians [Books] [de Grazia books]
... undifferentiated order preceding the cracking of the heavens and the first self-awareness of humans, at which point "chaos" as it is known today, a world of horrifying disorder, began and was stamped upon the mind of man, its first perceiver on the occasion of its first perceptibility. The Exponential Principle was applied to man. ECUMENICAL CULTURE Celestial religion began as intense preoccupation with the behavior of the gods and as the imitation of that behavior as the new humans saw and understood it. Spoken language began immediately in the band and spread quickly by breeding of the human genetic type and imitation of these by close genetic relatives. "As we follow the clues - stars, numbers ...
326. The Titius-bode Law of Planetary Distances - its History and Theory [Journals] [Pensee]
... does it betray an underlying order of nature, apprehension of which must ultimately permit deduction of the result directly from general physical laws? Nieto himself seems unconvinced after examining a great amount of accumulated scientific evidence. It is the diverse nature of the evidence that has a particular appeal to those who are less than satisfied with the patois of standard celestial mechanics based on consideration of gravitational forces alone. These were the only cosmic forces known to Isaac Newton who invented the laws of mechanics and gravitation, and to P. S. Laplace who created celestial mechanics two centuries ago. The fact is that celestial mechanicians, notwithstanding loud claims to the contrary, still stoutly defend and confine their ...
327. Martian Metamorphoses: The Planet Mars in Ancient Myth and Religion by Ev Cochrane [Journals] [SIS Review]
... exciting method of interpreting ancient myths to give a new view of mankind's earliest history as beset by catastrophes of cosmic origin paved the way for a new breed of researcher. Although his first book presented a fascinating case for planetary catastrophism in general, he concentrated on what he saw as the evidence that Venus had been the major player in the celestial drama, followed closely by Mars. Yet in mainly unpublished works he indicated that before Venus the main player had been Saturn, a planetary scenario he never followed up. A small body of researchers, starting notably with David Talbott's seminal work, have taken over where Velikovsky left off and developed a complex imagery of the planetary relationships, ...

329. A Skyscraper And A Sparrow. File II (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... assigning the same year to the magistrate, an Assyrian chronology was built by reconstructing the lists of the magistrates. However, it required a change of 44 years in Biblical chronology. Nevertheless, Stewart expressed pride in "such computations as these" concerning the ancient eclipses: They are "one of the most imposing demonstrations of the validity of celestial mechanics." The smallest quantities were taken into account by astronomers, confirming the law and the method as well. The "degree of intricacy' may be conveyed by Dr. Payne-Gaposchkin's statement that lunar theory alone recognizes 155 major periodic terms and over 500 smaller ones...." Stewart was proud that so many motions, ...
330. Forum Part Two [Journals] [SIS Review]
... that the claims of Velikovsky's critics, which are linked to publications by Euan MacKie, Moe Mandelkehr and Claude Schaeffer, are based on questionable interpretations of scientific data. The first member of SIS to question multiple extra-terrestrial catastrophes during the Bronze Age was Euan MacKie. Like Velikovsky, MacKie associated the conspicuous development of megalithic buildings around the globe to celestial disasters . If we were able, he argued, to reliably date the period these buildings were created, we would have a terminus ante quem for the last major catastrophe. This seems to be a very reasonable approach. But how accurate and reliable are our present dating methods really? I am very suspicious of MacKie's ...
