141. The Electro-gravitic Theory of Celestial Motion [Journals] [Aeon]
... if the sun, the source of light and warmth and other radiation. . . is as a whole an electrically neutral body, and the planets in their orbits are neutral bodies. "Fundamental principles in celestial mechanics. . .must come into question if the sun possesses a charge sufficient to influence the planets in their orbits and the comets in theirs." (3 ) For his advance claim of these solar and planetary magnetospheres Velikovsky was reviled by the scientific establishment. Today we accept his postulation that the planets are electrically charged bodies orbiting through an immense magnetosphere centered on the sun. However, Velikovsky's predictions that electromagnetic force affects the acceleration of celestial bodies has hardly been ...
142. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... of Saturn are the way they've been for millions of years, not that stuff is falling in now. And, of course, none of that is true. "Io's volcanoes were not supposed to exist either, but once you see something like that, it gives you the strength to think of everything changing as you watch it. Comet Catastrophes source: Astronomy February 1982, p. 63 In an interesting theory, which bears some resemblance to that of Clube and Napier, Dr J. G. Hills of the Los Alamos National Laboratory Theoretical Astrophysics Group postulates that the Solar System may have had close encounters with passing stars. This sort of event he thinks may have ...
143. Notes on the Androgynous Comet [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Review Vol 1 No 5 (Summer 1977) Home | Issue Contents Notes on the Androgynous Comet Zvi Rix ZVI RIX, M.D . (Vienna), is a Contributing Editor to KRONOS and now lives in Jerusalem. A correct placing of past events in the time-axis is a precondition for a correct understanding of the concepts held by the ancients and hence for the prevention of neuroses based on misconceptions resulting from distortion of the past. The collective therapy advocated by Velikovsky depends above all on a valid structuring of the history of mankind. Several methods of recovering the conceptual world of the ancients have been tried. 1. By interpreting the literature, in ...
144. Dialogue on Comets [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1997:2 (Feb 1998) Home | Issue Contents VOL I, No. 26. November 15, 1997 Dialogue on Comets [Poster called Rob writes]: There are lots of speculations as to why a comet starts falling in from way far out in the solar system to the inner system. Some of them just have very long period orbits and only show up every few thousand years. Other ones may have had very circular orbits way out there, but were disturbed by passing very close to another body and have had their orbits changed so that they are newly eccentric. This body would have to pass pretty close to them, ...

146. Forum Part Two [Journals] [SIS Review]
... ] Accordingly, the main hypothesis of the Cambridge Conference - evidence for catastrophes - appears to have been falsified: according to Velikovsky's critics, there seems to be no evidence that the Earth has suffered repeated catastrophes of cosmic origin in historical times. But how valid are the arguments brought forward by the critics? Only a few months ago, comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 collided with Jupiter. Ever since this event in July 1994, hardly a month has passed without reports of newly discovered comets, impact hazards from space, cosmic catastrophes and the rise of the new scientific fashion, neo-catastrophism, in the media. For example, during the summer of 1994, The Times featured three articles on ...
147. Formation of Chondritic Meteorites and the Solar System [Journals] [SIS Review]
... he published his Principia. He did not take into account electricity or its associated magnetism. Thirdly, some of the most important breakthroughs come about by taking an interdisciplinary approach. In this instance, electrical engineering provides the major clue as well as a possible test for the correctness of the theory. Origin of Meteorites According to this scenario, comets, asteroids and meteorites have a common origin. It is not assumed that these bodies have anything to do with a highly problematical primordial solar nebula. Therefore, for example, the Oort Shell' hypothesis of comets surrounding the Solar System is considered an unnecessary fiction. Indeed, Professor R. A. Lyttleton has described the Oort Shell ...
148. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Five [Books]
... is my light and my salvation" and in Ps.119 :105 "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path." Turning from darkness to flood waters now, on WIC p.82 V cites Ps.107: 25-6 as evidence' that at the time of the passage of the Venus Comet, tidal waves resulted in flood waters that climbed mountains and reached up to the heavens. I here quote Ps.107:21-31: "21. Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men. 22. And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and ...
149. Venus in Ancient Myth and Language [Journals] [Aeon]
... case with the Sumerian Inanna, Babylonian Ishtar, Canaanite Astarte, Egyptian Isis, and Greek Aphrodite, for example. (1 ) Following the lead of Immanuel Velikovsky, who, in Worlds in Collision, proposed that the planet Venus had recently assumed a comet-like orbit, Talbott and I attempted to reconstruct the history of this most unusual "comet." (2 ) We found a consistent connection of a comet-like Venus with Saturn, reflected in the earliest astronomical and religious texts alike, a connection which we interpreted as having developed at the time when Saturn reigned supreme in the skies as the central sun. Indeed, we were able to point to a time when Venus orbited ...
150. Second SIS Cambridge Conference Report [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... , and at their Web site (see previous page). Nearly a hundred astronomers, historians, archaeologists and others gathered at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge from 11-13 July 1997 for the second international conference of the Society for Interdisciplinary Studies. The purpose - to discuss the near-simultaneous ending of Bronze Age civilizations world-wide, in particular whether the "giant comet" hypothesis, associated principally with the names of Clube & Napier and Hoyle & Wickramasinghe, could be substantiated by ground truth in the archaeological, geological, climatological and historical records. Depending on one's chronology and the geographic region under discussion, the Bronze Age started c.3500 BC and continued for two or three thousand years until approximately ...
