113. Editor's Page [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon IV:6 (May 1997) Home | Issue Contents Editor's Page Comet Hale-Bopp has come and gone- at least from our Vancouver B.C ., sky. Described as a spectacle in the heavens, it has mesmerized thousands of watchers. Still being touted as "big, frozen dirt-balls," comets continue to be presented as having been "created at the same time as the sun and planets." This particular one has been calculated to be "four times the size of Halley's," and won't be back in our skies for another 2, 400 years. What amused me mostly, however, was not the usual statistics about the ...
114. Celestial Dynamics and "Worlds in Collision" [Journals] [SIS Review]
... to orbit. We both seek evidence in the motions as arbiter of our new models. Unfortunately neither of us can expect the luxury of an experimental test, inasmuch as "godlike power" is needed to "deflect planets" from their paths. So we use the next best thing, the motions of artificial satellites and space probes, comets and asteroids, to yield the crucial clues. We still suffer from a paucity of information despite the blizzard of existing data to be located and then to be searched through. Early in his paper Bass makes an essential point which warrants a restatement here. I re-express it in my own words as follows: Reality is described by imposing ...

116. Did Venus As A Protoplanet Ever Look Like A "Comet"? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 3 No 4 (Apr 1981) Home | Issue Contents Did Venus As A Protoplanet Ever Look Like A "Comet"?Chris Marx Velikovsky, in his WORLDS IN COLLISION and elsewhere, usually calls Venus a "comet", certainly from the time of her birth from Jupiter until the great catastrophe about -1450. At that time, presumably thousands of years after eruption from Jupiter, the peoples of the world saw two deities: the light-god, according to Velikovsky the "head" of the "comet" and the serpent, its "tail". But considering the evolution the protoplanet must have undergone since its eruption, the term " ...
117. Evidence for the Extreme Youth of Venus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the current steady state of the Solar System, gravitational theory seems to predict planet orbits accurately. Not only does the clockwork certainty make life easier for the mathematicians but it also makes the world seem safe. However, reality has a way of being much more complex than mathematical models: there is evidence, in particular from the behaviour of comets, that non-gravitational forces are also at work in the Solar System. Establishing a very recent and drastic change in the Solar System would cause reverberations in every field of study. As a recent example, scientists have pointed to the hellish surface conditions on Venus and have warned that the Earth could suffer the same fate as a result of ...

120. Nevermore. Ch.4 Poets And Visionaries (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... you left us, men had agreed to understand those passages in the most holy writings which speak of the final destruction of all things by fire, as having reference to the orb of the earth alone. But in regard to the immediate agency of the ruin, speculation had been at fault from that epoch in astronomical knowledge in which the comets were divested of the terrors of flame. The very moderate density of these bodies had been well established. They had been observed to pass among the satellites of Jupiter, without bringing about any sensible alteration either in the masses or in the orbits of these secondary planets. We had long regarded the wanderers as vapory creations of inconceivable tenuity ...
