41. More on Ancient Astronomy [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1999:1 (Apr 1999) Home¦ Issue Contents More on Ancient Astronomy Wed, 27 Jan 1999 From Bob Kobres <bkobres@uga.edu> A bit more about the value of ancient observations, as well as other non-planet associations with the number SEVEN, from Judith Kingston Bjorkman's Meteors and the Ancient Near East (Meteoritics 1973, 8, pp 91-132). [Page 92-93: Almost all of the astromantic texts which speak of meteors, etc., are of a type also known as celestial omens. An example of such a text is the following (Thompson, 1900, 202 obv. lines 5 to 9): If a shooting star flashes (as bright) as a light or as a torch from east to west and disappears (on the horizon): the army of the enemy will be slain in its onslaught. To those trained in the physical sciences, such a description may seem hopelessly subjective and unrelated to reality. However, a closer acquaintance with omen literature will show the reverse to be ...

... From: Kronos Vol. III No. 1 (Fall 1977) Home¦ Issue Contents On the Advance Claim of Jupiter's Radionoises Immanuel Velikovsky Copyright© 1977 by Immanuel Velikovsky One of the major deductions from the study of ancient civilizations was the recognition that the planetary and cometary bodies are charged objects and the solar system itself is regulated not solely by the law of gravitation; that electromagnetic interactions must exist and where following the inverse square law must be unrecognizable in their effects on the calculations of celestial mechanics- charge can, so to say, be hidden in or masked by the mass. Thus the problem of Pluto influencing Uranus and Neptune more than its mass can account for is a case of a substantial charge on a small planet. But where the less pronounced electromagnetic inverse cube relations take place, like in Mercury's precession of its perihelion, divergences from the celestial computations are registered as anomalies. Mercury moves through a general magnetic field of the Sun that influences it more strongly than it influences the remoter planets besides the influence on it and on them of ...

Employing Electro-Gravitic Theory, Charles Ginenthal maintains that celestial bodies exhibit systematic behavior not explained by traditional theory. This theory posits the concept that electromagnetism is a counter force to gravity which can be fully tested in space.

... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 2001:1 (Apr 2001) Home¦ Issue Contents The Electro-Gravitic Theory of Celestial Motion& Cosmology by Charles Ginenthal Vol IV of The Velikovskian, New York (hardback, 154 pp., ISBN No. 0-9639759-0-3). Available from the author at 65-35 108th Street, Forest Hills, NY 11375, USA, $20US, money orders payable to a US bank) Reviewed by Eric Crew Judging by the number of references to the scientific literature listed (278 in 132 pages of text- an average of 2 1/page) Charles Ginenthal has read more astronomy than most professional astronomers, who tend to concentrate on restricted fields. The list of contents include the origin and evolution of stars, galaxies and the solar system; entropy and an appendix of measurements and mathematics. In his last pages, he describes the Electro-Gravitic theory as monumental heresy, a totally new weltanschauung that, if valid, overthrows the world view of cosmology, following the view of Immanuel Velikovsky that electromagnetism must play a role in celestial ...

... own theory illustrated the danger of rejecting a theory in advance because it is interdisciplinary and daring. This policy, if successfully applied, would have led us to discard just about the only theory 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 the Harvard College Observatory: "Dr. Velikovsky's claim that there have been changes in the structure of the solar system during historical times has implications which apparently he has not thought through; or ...

46. Jupiter?s Radio Noises [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Jupiter ? s Radio Noises One of the major deductions from the study of ancient civilizations was the recognition that the planetary and cometary bodies are charged objects and the solar system itself is regulated not solely by the law of gravitation; that electromagnetic interactions must exist and where following the inverse square law must be unrecognizable in their effects on the calculations of celestial mechanics- charge can, so to say, be hidden in or masked by the mass. Thus the problem of Pluto influencing Uranus and Neptune more than its mass can account for is a case of a substantial charge on a small planet. But where the less pronounced electromagnetic inverse cube relations take place, like in Mercury ? s precession of its perihelion, divergences from the celestial computations are registered as anomalies. Mercury moves through a general magnetic field of the Sun that influences it more strongly than it influences the remoter planets besides the influence on it and on them of the magnetic solar spots and solar wind. In catastrophic conditions, with two celestial bodies approaching one another closely, the electromagnetic interactions may ...

47. Conclusion [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... difficult to dispel in the face of such "primitive" imagery as golden mountains reaching heaven, revolving islands and temples, winged goddesses, cosmic bulls, circular serpents, and descending rivers of fire. Mythologists quickly despair of rational explanation. But it is the thesis of this book that the confusion results chiefly from the failure of the modern age to discern the underlying cosmic order to which the myths refer. Our reconstruction of this order includes the following elements: In the earliest age recalled by man the planet Saturn was the dominant celestial body. Ancient races the world over record that there was once a "Golden Age"-- a kingdom of cosmic harmony ruled by a central light god. Numerous sources identify this light god as the planet Saturn. Accounts of Saturn's appearance suggest that the planet hung ominously close to the earth. In early ritual and astronomy Saturn appears as the "primeval sun," described as a figure of "terrifying splendour." Today, Saturn appears as a bare speck of light following the same visual path as the solar ...

48. Introduction: The Saturn Myth [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... have come and gone, or of planetary gods whose wars threatened to destroy mankind, we are likely to take them as amusing and absurdly exaggerated accounts of local floods, earthquakes, and eclipses-- or write them off altogether as expressions of unconstrained fancy. How many scholars, seeking to unravel the astronomical legends and symbols of antiquity, have questioned whether the heavenly bodies have always coursed on the same paths they follow today? In the past three hundred years barely a handful of writers have claimed any connection between myth and actual celestial catastrophe-- William Whiston published in 1696 A New Theory of the Earth, arguing that the biblical Deluge resulted from a cometary cataclysm. The book produced a storm of scientific objections and had no lasting impact outside Christian orthodoxy. In 1882 and 1883 two books by Ignatius Donnelly appeared: Atlantis, the Antediluvian World, and Ragnarok: the Age of Fire and Gravel. Relying on global myths, Donnelly claimed that a massive continent called Atlantis once harboured a primordial civilization, but the entire land sank beneath the sea when a ...

... From: The Velikovskian Vol 1 No 3 (1993) Home¦ Issue Contents Proof of A Celestial Counterforce to Gravity Charles Ginenthal One of the most basic concepts of gravitational theory, as devised by Isaac Newton is that of angular momentum, and, more importantly, the law of conservation of angular momentum. As Carl Sagan stated, "There is one further point about the scientific method that must be made. Not all scientific statements have equal weight. Newtonian dynamics and the laws of conservation of energy and angular momentum have extremely firm footing." (1) The conservation laws required that "[ i n a closed [gravitational system, such as the solar system or an isolated star [system, there is always conservation of [angular momentum." (2) For example, if one of the planets were to approach another closely, accelerating to escape velocity so as to leave the solar system, it would take gravitational energy away with it --in this case, angular momentum. The solar system would have less of this energy and would ...
