171. Catastrophes and the History of Life on Earth [Journals] [SIS Review]
... when huge rocks and fire-brands were hurled around as weapons, suggest a volcanic scenario, as does the fact that Zeus clashed with the monstrous Typhon (also known as Typhoeus) near Mount Vesuvius and finally trapped him under Mount Etna. However, the Roman author, Pliny the Elder, wrote that Typhon was the name given to a terrifying comet, which was of fiery appearance' and twisted like a coil'. As we now know, comets and asteroids are other potential causes of global catastrophes [13]. The situation had seemed very different in 1950, when Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision first appeared. Comets had been feared in ancient times, but, more recently, ...

172. Tektites and China's Dragon [Journals] [Kronos]
... titled "China's Dragon," which appeared in the winter 1973-74 issue of Pensee." ' In that article, Dr. Sutherland presented some evidence in support of Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky's identification of the dragon as the proto-planet Venus when, around 1500 B.C ., this heavenly body plagued the Earth in the form of a newly-born comet. In presenting his evidence, Sutherland relied exclusively on the dragon form as it evolved through the years in Chinese art. He was able to conclude, among other things, that the dragon in Chinese art did not go back further than 1500 B.C . and that it probably originated then. The article was well researched but ...

173. Reviewing Velikovsky'S Venus And Mars Theories [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... required paradigm (model) shifts for ancient history, Earth history, and astronomy. The first new paradigm was on pages 39 -206. There, he advocated that Venus, after being expelled by Jupiter, began to make close flybys of the Earth occasionally during the second millennium BCE. In addition, Velikovsky advocated that Venus had been a comet with a long, highly reflective, cometary tail. Velikovsky's second new paradigm was on pages 207-360, wherein Velikovsky advocated that the planet Mars also had made several close flybys of the Earth. These later Mars flybys he dated in the earliest third of the fiirst millennium BCE, the era of Israel's prophets. Mars in that later era ...

... From: The Riddle of the Earth by Appian Way CD Home | Contents Chapter XI When The Comet Fell GEOLOGISTS' STRANGE IDEAS ON THE DRIFT AGE THERE is little in common with the views of geologists in regard to the Drift, and the conclusions reached in this work. Much as astronomers talk lightly of a comet having an orbit of 100,000 years, so do geologists talk of an Ice Age or several Ice Ages, with sub-tropical interludes between, and ascribe a period of anything up to 600,000 years for the prevalence of this Ice Age, associated with the Drift. It was a sudden and violent episode which in the main lasted only a few ...

John Gribbin daringly sticks his neck out once again to point out these correlations and to predict that the next danger time will be at the height of the next sunspot cycle at the turn of the century. Planet is a Comet'source: New Scientist 13.5 .89, p. 35 Chiron, which astronomers have always thought of as a minor planet, orbits the Sun once every 50.7 years in an eccentric orbit (varying from 8.5 to 19 A.U . from the Sun) which lies between those of the gas ...

Victor showed pictures from the 16th century depicting meteorite falls, rains of fire and houses upside down, one from northern Greece, the other from southern Germany. In the latter, a woman was being beheaded, apparently for predicting the end of the world. Astronomers are not encouraged to talk about comets and the end of the world. However the press are picking up things Clube and colleagues are saying. Clube is a frequent visitor to the US to talk about dangers from comets and their debris. He gave us his usual spiel: There's something big out there and it's going to strike us again if we don't take precautions! ...

... in human records, the book Worlds in Collision pertains only to those since the fifteenth century, B.C . The story of the earlier events is reserved for volumes now in typescript. Additionally, Velikovsky believes he has re-discovered the cause of these events. In each instance the Earth encountered objects of large mass, sometimes called filaments, comets, or proto-planets: hence, the title, Worlds in Collision. Passing bodies collided with the Earth not by actually striking it but by approaching close enough to disrupt its rotation, to cause changes in the direction of poles, tectonic movements of its crust, largescale glaciation, interplanetary discharges of electricity, relocation of its orbit, and ...

180. Sagan's "Ten Plagues" [Journals] [Kronos]
... " With these words he places himself in the company of eighteenth century astronomers, who denied the reality of meteorites because they had never seen stones falling from the sky. Getting down to specifics, Sagan recounts how certain nineteenth century astronomers (whom he characterizes as "early astronomers") thought Jupiter must be the source of the so-called short-period comets with aphelia near the Jovian orbit. But, says Sagan, "this is an unnecessary hypothesis" because perturbations of long-period comets by Jupiter can result in their capture into short-period orbits by the giant planet. His audience, of course, is to infer that "unnecessary" means untrue. The rules change for Comet Venus, however ...
