81. Earthquake Lights (U.S. Geological Survey News Release) [Catastrophism Geology $]
... in the early 1930's by two Japanese seismologists, Torahiko Terada and Kinkiti Musya; the latter collected some 1,500 reports of lights from the Idu Peninsula earthquake which occurred at 4:30 a.m., November 26, 1930. In most of the accounts of the lights from the Idu Peninsula quake, the sky was lit up as if by sheet lightning, with nearly all observers agreeing that the duration of a single flash was much longer than that of lightning. Others described the lights as resembling auroral streamers, beams and columns, fireballs, or as a ruddy glow in the sky, with distances of the lights estimated to be 50 miles to the east of the quake's epicenter, nearly 70 miles to the northeast, and mcre than 40 miles to the west. The lights were seen both before and for some time after the earthquake, but were most conspicuous during the middle of the shock. There have been a few reports of earthquake lights observed at sea. In January 1922, for example, when an earthquake occurred off the coast of ...
82. Devil's Advocates [SIS C&C Review $]
... Velikovsky's theories. This is really a fundamental weakness in what is otherwise a most valuable re-examination of Velikovsky's source materials. Velikovsky's Sources consists of over 500 typescript pages gathered into six volumes and looks at the majority of sources used by Velikovsky in Worlds in Collision. Rarely has an individual book been subjected to such obsessive scrutiny and Velikovsky's Sources will be the definitive statement of the anti-Velikovskian viewpoint for some time to come. We look forward to publishing further extracts from the work, critical commentary upon it and a lively debate in our correspondence columns as the argument develops. Identifying the flaws in Velikovsky's work is not, of course the whole story. The discarding of inconvenient evidence and the massaging of data to fit theory have been time-honoured practices throughout the development of science from Ptolemy in the 2nd century through Newton in the 17th to Millikan in the 20th; such behaviour need not exclude one from the pantheon of scientific greatness or even preclude the award of a Nobel Prize, despite the often intoned myth of the rigorously objective scientist. Even complete originality of theory is not ...
83. German Conference: from Gunnar Heinsohn [SIS Internet Digest $]
... they are trying hard these days also to stretch back to that period they cannot do so simply on paper. They will have to present strata in the ground whereas the west does not see itself under such duty and scrutiny, Blöss and Niemitz (authors of C14-CRASH) work on tree ring, C14- and varve-dating was extended to the latter with the wonderful result that the Swedes have nowhere 13.000 varves but just 60-100 in each place which are, later, put on top of each other in the books though the individual varve columns-- admittedly-- do not match. Thus, debunked C14 or tree ring dates cannot be saved by resorting to varve dates. ...
84. The Memphite Tomb of Haremheb [SIS Internet Digest $]
... of Djoser, in a large area identified as containing 18th and early 19th dynasty tombs in the middle of the 19th century. However, it has only recently been opened for systematic exploration. In this era Memphis is thought to have been the administrative capital, hence the burial of court officials. Officials' tombs seem to have a standardised layout, showing strong similarity to the plan view of an Egyptian temple. Although there is considerable variation in size, the template itself varies less. An initial approach leads to a courtyard with columns, leading to an area with statues of gods, after which is the central burial area and focus of cultic activity. In Horemheb's tomb, the iconography and artwork have reverted to traditional forms- the images of ancient gods and religious observations have been reasserted. In the outer areas, much of the upper stonework has gone, probably reused elsewhere as a source of stone. There are echoes of the Amarna style in the way in which people are depicted (body shape, detailing etc). The outer courtyard mainly depicts ...
85. The Tomb of the High Priest of Aten at Memphis [SIS Internet Digest $]
... was to determine if there had been a ceremonial approach leading to Horemheb's tomb from the east. This proved not to be the case, but the actual find was probably a much more significant one. It highlights the fact that in this area, many other tombs remain to be uncovered and explored, with a correspondingly large potential for highly significant finds. The tomb is smaller than that of Horemheb but is clearly laid out on the same basic plan. It is entered from the east into a colonnaded courtyard. Three of the columns were (unusually) still standing, and a number of inscriptions were able to be read. The name was found in several forms- Meri-Re, Meri-Aten, Meri-Neet. This suggests that he operated in a sacred capacity over several reigns- the latter part of Amenhotep 3's, certainly during Akhenaten's, and most probably into Tutankhamun's. The change of name could reflect changing stages in a religious career or simply a tactful acknowledgement of a changing Egypt. Several titles were found: Scribe of the Aten of the Horizon of the Aten ...

88. Focus [SIS C&C Review $]
... of SCV [8. In the tradition of all good defenders of a status quo, Abell avoided referring to any of Ransom's major comments while raising three new points. Abell laments: "Scientists... simply do not have time to become involved in a futile debate with committed believers..." [9 as though committed believers were only to be found among the ranks of alleged heretics and cultists. In addition, FRED JUENEMAN's continuing efforts deserve mention. In 1978 he devoted nine of his "Innovative Notebook" columns in Industrial Research/Development to Velikovskian subjects. His January-June and August-October musings cover a wide range of subjects, discussing magnetism thrice, radiohalos, radioactive dating, Stonehenge, celestial dynamics, the Hymn to Aton and the temperature of Venus. The December issue has a letter from an astronomer at the University of Delaware protesting the celestial dynamics column in June together with Jueneman's undaunted reply [l0. That column collected the evidence from celestial dynamics supporting Worlds in Collision which CARL SAGAN had entirely "overlooked" in his analysis. 1 ...
89. Letters [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Workshop No. 2 (July 1978) Home¦ Issue Contents Letters (The following letter from the correspondence columns of the current Journal of the B.A.A. (Vol. 88, No. 3, April 1978),was submitted by Michael G. Reade, London. Mr. N. P. Warren has kindly given me permission to publish it and while wishing the Society well in its endeavours, nevertheless adds that he has "never been favourably impressed by Velikovsky's theories, which are at least in violation of the Law of Conservation of Angular Momentum". Perhaps one of our members with scientific expertise may wish to comment.- Ed.) The Flying Dragon Sir, Miss Botley's letter on Bygone Meteorites refers to a picture, of a bolide, represented with a "sort of winged Loch Ness Monster for garnishing". In fact the flying dragon was a powerful and enduring analogy for the bolide itself. The great bolide of 1783, referred to in the same letter, was considered to be "of that Species of ...

... publication of a list of Members has been suggested, and, although the idea is attractive, it does pose problems, not the least of which is the necessity for some Members to guard their anonymity for professional reasons. However, we are conscious of the fact that many, like Mr. Storck above, would be interested to know of others in their neighbourhood, and we therefore invite those wishing to make contact, or even those having no objection to others contacting them, to avail themselves of the opportunity by using these columns. \cdrom\pubs\journals\workshop\vol0301\05cont.htm ...
