... From: The Mysterious Comet by Comyns Beaumont CD Home | Contents Part One: Meteors And Weather V - Dangers Of Appulsion WE are gradually coming to bigger things-or considerations. I could, if it were needed, fill this work with meteorological episodes to show how the weather is affected over wide and distant areas by new causes; that, unless it were replenished from reservoirs somewhere else, this world of ours would go dry, and that, therefore, we must visualise a frequent transmission of new atmospherics injected or projected, by what, for want of a better term, we must call Divine Intervention, into this sphere. I might term it the fruits of celestial ...
162. In the Beginning -- A Review [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... difficult concepts- especially that of a universal deluge. Like the Venusian myth, the deluge story is found in "all ancient civilizations, and also by races that never reached the ability to express themselves in the written symbols of a language." [Deluge, p. 40] Reviewing the literature, Velikovsky discusses William Whiston's theory that a comet was the agent responsible for the great flood. Whiston, a Unitarian (which at that time was similar to being a fundamentalist today), accepted only one global catastrophe- namely that of the Noachian flood. Velikovsky points to J. Heveluis' Cometographic and Abraham Rockenbach's De Cometes Tractatus Novus Methodicus as sources, among others, that a ...

... ... becomes negligible."36 Therefore, two near collisions by Venus with the Earth and one with Mars and then Mars having three near collisions with the Earth create such a low order of probability that Velikovsky's thesis is simply too improbable to be taken seriously as a scientific concept. Nevertheless, Sagan, in his highly popular book Comet (N .Y . 1986), pages 95-96 claims that: "Most short period comets may have achieved their orbits by multiple gravitational encounters with Jupiter or even by multiple encounters with more distant planets and eventually, with Jupiter itself." 34 Davidson, Carl Sagan A Life, op. cit.,p . 263. ...
164. Prelude to Creation [Journals] [Aeon]
... " which is what these plasma currents have been misnamed, are not always seen to travel down astral jets. The knots, or plasmoids, in the elongated plasma feature of M87 showed no motion in observation between the years 1934 to 1980.  The speed of similar, but much smaller, knots in the plasma tail of comets is also very erratic, with their acceleration "turning on and off capriciously." Some cometary knots were seen to have "very little speed or acceleration."  It cannot therefore be a law of plasma physics that bodies embedded in cosmic "jets" must travel on forever. In a system as compact as the ...
165. Cosmic Catastrophism [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon II:6 (1991) Home | Issue Contents Cosmic Catastrophism (1 ) William Stiebing Jr.A large comet or asteroid hurtles through space on a collision course with the earth. As the impact nears, the earth is racked by cataclysms: Volcanoes erupt simultaneously; earthquakes shatter what was once firm land; mountain-high tidal waves destroy continents and change the earth's topography. A science fiction plot? Not according to many authors who have presented a similar scenario as historical fact over the years. A supposed collision or near-collision between earth and an asteroid, comet, or planet in ancient times has been used variously as the explanation for the destruction of Atlantis ( ...
166. Book Reviews [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Fatima warnings and others issued from time to time by members of the Church of Rome. The reason for the inclusion and advertisement of this book is the fact that the instruments of the portended doom are seen to be related to the work of Dr. Velikovsky in which he deals with the destructive agencies in earth's history and relates them to comets colliding with the earth, viz. Worlds in Collision'. Quite apart from the fact that the Church would be the first to protect herself from the many saintly predictions which have been made through the ages on the grounds of their unreliability, however sincerely intended, we wrote to the author, C. Marystone, suggesting that these ...

168. Comets, Meteorites and Earth History [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Review Vol VII Part A (1985) Home | Issue Contents Focus S.I .S . MEETINGS Comets, Meteorites and Earth History S.I .S . Spring Meeting, 1984 The Society's Spring meeting was honoured by the presence of two distinguished speakers, both of whom have proposed that many significant events in Earth history have been the result of exoterrestrial encounters - though at opposite ends of the cosmic scale. For Professor Wickramasinghe, the development of life on Earth is the result of microscopic bacteria evolving in space and "seeding" this planet, having been transported by cometary tails; for Rene Gallant, macroscopic impacts by asteroids and meteorites have not ...

... of disasters."

... identified with Aphrodite.  There is good reason to think that Diodorus' account preserves archetypal motifs of great significance, as the mourning goddess' habit of wandering around with flowing hair forms a recurring feature in ancient myth. The Greek Electra, for example, is said to have loosed her hair and streamed across heaven as a comet while lamenting the destruction of Troy. Electra's plight is recounted as follows: "But after the conquest of Troy and the annihilation of its descendants...overwhelmed by pain she separated from her sisters and settled in the circle named artic, and over long periods she would be seen lamenting, her hair streaming. That brought her ...
