... be able to work out for themselves that Velikovsky's idea is in breach of various laws of physics and hence is untenable. Nevertheless, a breed of Velikovsky disciples emerged, similar to alien-contact enthusiasts, and they proved to be the bane of astronomers, with occasional resurrections occurring even today." Astronomer Duncan Steel, Rogue Asteroids and the Doomsday Comet "The existence of a pervasive paradigm is one of the worst problems that faces science in all its manifestations. The concept of a paradigm shift is often exalted by the very people who do most to obviate such changes in doctrine, their conservatism being the barrier. For the majority of the time, dogma rules supreme." Astronomer ...

123. Worlds In Collision And Recent Finds In Astronomy. Ch.17 Supplement (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... origin of which has for a long time occupied the minds of astronomers, has been explained in recent years as the reflection of the solar light from two rings of dust particles, one following the orbit of Venus, the other an orbit between Mars and Jupiter, places where, according to Worlds in Collision, collisions of planets and a comet took place. The origin of asteroids, or small planets, that circle between Jupiter and Mars, some of which cross the orbit of Mars and even that of the earth, has lately been explained as the result of the explosion of a planet and more recently (1950) as the result of a collision between two planets in ...

125. The Birth Of Venus, Part 1 Venus Ch.8 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... From "Worlds in Collision" © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Birth Of Venus A planet turns and revolves on a quite circular orbit around a greater body, the sun; it makes contact with another body, a comet, that travels on a stretched out ellipse. The planet slips from its axis, runs in disorder off its orbit, wanders rather erratically, and in the end is freed from the embrace of the comet. The body on the long ellipse experiences similar disturbances. Drawn off its path, it glides to some new orbit; its long train of gaseous substances and stones is torn away by the sun or by the ...
126. Nemesis for Evolutionary Gradualism? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of tens of millions of years' Possible explanations Pre-prints of this paper were rapidly circulated and discussed at a workshop organized by Luis Alvarez at Berkeley, California, on March 3rd and 4th, 1984. Possible explanations of the periodicity were soon suggested [11, 30, 53, 54]. Several explanations centred on the possibility that the comets of the Solar System might be disrupted at regular intervals. Victor Clube and Bill Napier had previously suggested that comets would be captured by the Solar System as it passes through a spiral arm of the galaxy every 50-400 Myr [2 , 55, 56] leading to a period of increased cometary activity during which several comets or cometary-derived asteroids ...

From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:1 (May 2000) Home | Issue Contents Comets Contagion and Contingency www.ucl.ac.uk/~ucaksjs/COMWEB2.html This paper was presented to the International Society of Clinical Biostatistics, in Innsbruck 1988 and submitted to Statistics in Medicine for publication in the proceedings of that conference. The editors and referees requested revision but I chose not to revise it and it was never published. Summary: Two astronomers, F. Hoyle and C. Wickramasinghe, have collected data on various epidemics in schools in an attempt to show that person to person transmission alone is unable to explain the pattern of disease and that outside contamination ...

... From: Kronos Vol. X No. 1 (Fall 1984) Home | Issue Contents Newton And Historical Science Livio C. Stecchini Copyright (c ) 1984 by Dorothea Stecchini Newton maintained that, by Divine Providence, comets are prevented from disrupting the beautiful order of planetary motions which cause the Earth to be a particularly fit abode for man; thus he made the Earth central to the solar system, in spite of the Copernican revolution in astronomy. The fact that comets are prevented from interfering with the system proves that the Earth is central spiritually, if not materially. He did not assume that the protection of guardian angels against the action of comets was eternal. It ...

... the land upside down; the sun is veiled and shines not in the sight of men. I show thee the son as an enemy, the brother as a foe, a man slaying his father. '" Thus, as V has it, the Ermitage Papyrus describes the inversion of the earth after its catastrophic encounter with the Venus Comet, followed by prolonged darkness and civil strife. The Ermitage Papyrus itself, however, is not nearly so specific, as the following lengthy extract, containing V's quotes, shows. "What was spoken by (17) Neferrohu, that wise man of the East, who belongs to Ubast at her rising, that native of the ...
