1. The Nature and Origin of Comets and the Evolution of Celestial Bodies (Part II) [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. IX No. 3 (Summer 1984) Home | Issue Contents The Nature and Origin of Comets and the Evolution of Celestial Bodies (Part II)J. M. McCanney Copyright (c ) 1981 & 1984 by J. M. McCanney PREFACE TO PART II Part I (KRONOS IX:1 , Fall 1983, pp. 17-39) presented critiques of the ice ball comet model (IBCM) and nebular collapse theory of the origin of the solar system (OSS) and argued that these "accepted" theories fall short of explaining numerous observed phenomena. Part I also introduced a new theory for comet behavior and solar system evolution based on ...
2. The Great Comet Venus [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon III:5 (May 1994) Home | Issue Contents The Great Comet Venus David Talbott Venus in myth and science The planet Venus is Earth's closest planetary neighbor, moving on an orbit 108 million kilometers (67 million miles) from the Sun. Modern astronomers have always believed that Venus, evolving within its own enclave in the solar system, has followed its present path for countless millions of years. Working under this assumption most planetary scientists believed- until the 1960's- that Venus might be very much like the Earth, and many scientists speculated freely on the possibilities of life on Venus. (1 ) But the space age brought more than a few ...

A COMET CAUSED THE DRIFT. Now, good reader, we have reasoned together up to this point. To be sure, I have done most of the talking, while you have indulged in what the Rev. Sydney Smith called, speaking of Lord Macaulay, " brilliant flashes of silence." But I trust we agree thus far that neither water nor ice caused the Drift. Water and ice ...
4. The Nature and Origin of Comets and the Evolution of Celestial Bodies (Part I) [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. IX No. 1 (Fall 1983) Home | Issue Contents The Nature and Origin of Comets and the Evolution of Celestial Bodies (Part I)J. M. McCANNEY Copyright (c ) 1981 & 1983 by J. M. McCanney ABSTRACT: This paper provides an alternate theory for comet behavior and shows comets to be planetary, lunar, and asteroidal bodies in their formative stages. It demonstrates that tail matter is attracted towards an asteroidal comet nucleus by strong electrical forces. Additionally, two charging mechanisms are identified, both of which produce a net negative charge on the comet nucleus. This is supported by data from recent space probes. ...
5. On Comets and Kings [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon II:1 (1989) Home | Issue Contents On Comets and Kings by Ev Cochrane Note (1 ) In Worlds in Collision, Immanuel Velikovsky presented a vivid picture of a world suffering from the effects of the near passage of a great comet. Velikovsky's scenario envisaged a period of universal darkness, the fall of great kingdoms, and expectations of the end of the world. Velikovsky's vision is generally faithful to the universal mythology of the comet, which- although it has been largely eradicated from the annals of science under the auspices of modern astronomy- periodically resurfaces upon the appearance of a prominent comet such as Halley's. Pre-scientific or not, the ominous portents associated ...
... From: The Riddle of the Earth by Appian Way CD Home | Contents Chapter IX The Mission Of A Comet COMETS AND THEIR PRESUMED ORBITS COMETS are presumed to possess definite orbits which are calculated from the direction of their apparent motion. This theory, sustained by Halley, in relation to the comet bearing his name, is proving to be illusory, for some comets do not return at all, like Biela's comet, others arrive erratically either early or late, and others, whose orbits are estimated to require some phenomenal period of time, even as much as 100,000 years, may return in quite a short time. As to the latter class, there is ...
7. The Birth and Odyssey of Halley's Comet: From 2484 B.C. to the Present Time [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History XI:1 (Jan 1989) Home | Issue Contents The Birth and Odyssey of Halley's Comet: From 2484 B.C . to the Present Time Donald Wesley Patten and Samuel Ronald Windsor Halley's Comet is the most famous of the approximately 130 short-term comets in our solar system. Its average orbital period is 76.7 years, varying between 74 and 79 years. Variations in its orbit result from gravitational attraction to the planets, and their changing positions, with Jupiter being the most influential. The 1986 close look at Halley's Comet provided some certainty about its construction: it is composed of ice. It is not an "ice ball ...
... From: The Mysterious Comet by Comyns Beaumont CD Home | Contents Part Two: The Comet And Its Work IV - Some Famous Comets I HAVE produced evidence to show that comets are transitory bodies, erstwhile planets, destined to be drawn inevitably into the centre of the solar system into which they are projected, and as such cannot possess any orbit other than a purely temporary revolution. That these bodies, once drawn in, can perform two or three elliptic revolutions to a distance far beyond that of the earth and even of Jupiter may seem surprising in view of their comparative smallness and lack of solidity. The reason for it is that they approach the sun at a momentum ...
9. The Origin of the Comets, Prologue Ch.1 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... From "Worlds in Collision" © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Origin of the Comets The nebular and tidal theories endeavour to explain the origin of the solar system but do not include the comets in their schemes. Comets are more numerous than planets. More than sixty comets are known to belong definitely to the solar system. These are the comets of short periods (less than eighty years); they revolve in stretched ellipses and all but one do not go beyond the line marked by the orbit of Neptune. It is estimated that, besides the comets of short periods, several hundred thousand comets visit the solar system; however it is ...
10. Comets And Catastrophes [Journals] [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 3 No 3: (Fall 1973) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered V" Home | Issue Contents Comets And Catastrophes Kohoutek's visit Urey on cometary cataclysms Comets and oil formation Vsekhsvyatskii's views on the origin of comets During the latter half of January, 1974, in the evening sky, a comet will emerge from behind the sun. Named Kohoutek after its discoverer, this comet- after first passing 14 million miles from the sun- will approach within about 75 million miles of the earth in mid-January. Earlier, in December, it may be visible in the morning sky, and during both months there is a chance it will be visible during daylight hours. While ...
