121. Deep Impact—The Smoking Guns? [Thunderbolts Website]

We ’ ll hold off on a celebration for now, but the pictures above appear to exhibit some of the “smoking guns” that the electric theorists have predicted. The single most dramatic prediction of the electric comet model is this: on close inspection an active comet nucleus will reveal the electrical arcs that progressively etch away the surface and accelerate material into space. From the electrical vantage point, Tempel 1 is a“ low voltage comet ”, but the etching process appears to be sufficiently active to make our case. The white spots were noticed by the Thunderbolts crew as soon as the first pictures were released, and we offered an interpretation: they are small electric arcs analogous to the discharge plumes on Jupiter ’ s moon Io, ...
122. What's in a Comet's Tail [Thunderbolts Website]

Smith (STScI), NASA home pic of the day archive subject index abstract archive Links: Holoscience Electric Cosmos The Universe Plasma Cosmology Society for Interdisciplinary Studies educational resources Aeon Journal Nov 22, 2004 What's in a Comet's Tail? According to standard theory, a comet forms a head and tail because ices-- water and other frozen gases-- are heated enough to sublimate and to escape from the nucleus. Thus, a comet is thought to be composed of ices, distinguishing it from an asteroid, which is thought to be composed of rocky material. According to Electric Universe theory, comets and asteroids are not necessarily of different composition-- it is the long oval orbit through the solar electrical field that makes a comet grow a head and tail. When comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 broke apart, astronomers reasoned that the fractured nucleus would expose fresh ices that would sublimate furiously. So several ground-based telescopes and ...
123. Velikovsky Symposium- Florida, July 12 [SIS Internet Digest $]
... agree that ancient myths and symbols deserve careful study and cross-cultural comparison to see if they might point to the nature of the upheavals." I found it very interesting that he agreed with both statements. And what do you think the astronomers Clube and Napier have done? Do you really want to say they would have a case for anything if they had to exclude the great myths of the world? And is Fred Hoyle also crazy for supporting the conclusions from this methodology? Even Carl Sagan and Nancy Druyan, in their book Comet, notice the prevalence of an ancient symbol, the swastika, and propose a celestial origin of the symbol. It was a rotating comet spewing streams of gas into surrounding space, they say. Now are you going to tell me that this armchair speculation is okay, but work actually exploring the recurring contexts of that symbol (all of the contexts ignored by Sagan and Druyan) doesn't count as evidence? Give Velikovsky a break, and credit him with having discerned a key to discovery. Notice that even Duncan Steele, ...
124. The Electric Universe CD by Wallace Thornhill [SIS Internet Digest $]
... Thornhill Review by Amy Acheson Thoth Vol III, No. 4. Feb 15, 1999 Wallace Thornhill's CD offers a visual invitation to toss aside the straightjacket of paradigm paralysis and explore the universe from an electric point of view. He covers an enormous range of phenomena, from subatomic particles through stellar and galactic evolution, floodlighting our understanding of the universe with insights garnered from mythical symbols, space probes, and plasma lab experiments. As an illustration, let me compare the received explanation with Thornhill's electric explanation for the tail of Halley's Comet, both presented in light of photographs returned by the ESA spacecraft Giotto in March, 1986. The standard theory states that "Comets grow tails only when they get warm enough for ice and dust to boil off.... on the [sunward side, jets of gas and dust spurt from active holes in its [the comet's surface and are illuminated by the sun." (The Great Comet Crash, Spencer and Mitton, pg. 2) Thornhill's electrical theory of the same data begins with "The fly-by ...
125. Rockenbach's 'De Cometis' and the Identity of Typhon [SIS C&C Review $]
... Issue Contents Rockenbach's 'De Cometis' and the Identity of Typhon John J. Bimson Copyright (c) J.J. Bimson, 1977 DR BIMSON HAS RECENTLY COMPLETED A DOCTORATE THESIS FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF BIBLICAL STUDIES AT THE UNIVERSITY OF SHEFFIELD, DEALING WITH EARLY HEBREW CHRONOLOGY WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO THE DATING OF THE EXODUS. In the Fall 1973 number of Pensée there appeared "A Note or Rockenbach's De Cometis" by Carter Sutherland. The article dealt with the passage in Abraham Rockenbach's essay on comets (published in 1602) in which the comet of Typhon is described. Velikovsky had previously made use or this passage in Worlds in Collisions (the section "The Comet of Typhon") because it supports his assumption that this comet appeared at the time of the Exodus. Dr Sutherland's article gives us an English translation of the entire Latin passage presented by Velikovsky, including a sentence which Velikovsky omitted from his own English translation. Dr Sutherland commented that this previously omitted sentence "directs our attention to the giants and opens a possibly fruitful, if certainly tedious, area of ...
126. Newton's World View [Kronos $]
... observed that many of the critics of Velikovsky have claimed that historical data are irrelevant to astronomical science, but even today every study on comets is based on a collation of the available historical data. In fact, specialists of the theory of comets give particular importance to the Chinese historical records** which began to be scrutinized for these very purposes in the age of Newton. Once one started to examine the ancient records one began to pay attention to the texts that mention that catastrophes on Earth were caused by the impact of a comet.

129. Thoth Vol. II, No. 7 April 15, 1998 [Thoth Website]
... hit upon the same highly specific idea, in flagrant contradiction of all natural experience? Or were the stargazers responding imaginatively to something APPEARING IN THE SKY and inspiring the great terror consistently evident in the ancient accounts? The key will be found in the symbolic language, the natural hieroglyphs (serpent, flowing hair, feathers, streams of fire). Once it is realized that, among all of the great cultures, the most common glyphs attached to the cosmic serpent- not to mention the serpent itself- were hieroglyphs for the COMET, the door is opened to stunning discovery. Suddenly one sees a vital principle almost uniformly ignored in comparative cultural studies. When an entire complex of symbols points to a singular celestial form, it is only reasonable to presume the presence of that form, and to look for corroborating references. If a unique form or celestial object WAS present, we should expect all manner of corroborating evidence; and if it was NOT present, it is inconceivable that one would consistently find widely varying words and symbols pointing to that very celestial ...
130. Jupiter in Collision: In Search of Velikovsky's Comet [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1995 No 1 (June 1995) Home¦ Issue Contents ARTICLE Jupiter in Collision: In Search of Velikovsky's Comet by Milton Zysman (Paper presented at Portland 1994 seminar) Introduction 'Of all the mysterious phenomena which accompanied the Exodus, this mysterious pillar seems the first to demand explanation' [1 Velikovsky came to his catastrophe thesis through a search for a reliable chronology for ancient Middle Eastern history. This search, born of the realisation that both Egyptians and Israelites alike went through a great physical upheaval, gave rise to the most influential work on catastrophism published this century. Hebrew traditions of the red and poisonous Nile, the impenetrable darkness, the hot stones from heaven, the great winds and noise, the anomalous behaviour of insects and animals and the tidal effect at the Sea of Passage were collected and matched to the other worldwide traditions, convincing Velikovsky that the Exodus event was part of a global upheaval caused by the passage of the Earth through the tail of a giant protoplanet. Velikovsky drew his original inspiration not from ...
