... in supernova explosions. Meanwhile a large burst of X-rays from a bright star which normally gives out an unvarying stream of X-rays remains unexplained, as also a sudden X-ray beacon from the centre of our Galaxy. The Washington Post 5.4 .96 Mystery X-rays were also detected, in the form of a crescent on the sunward side of Comet Hyakutaki, the recent new comet named after its Japanese discoverer. First sighted in January, the comet went on to become the most spectacular for twenty years, being visible with the naked eye during March and April. Astronomers are hard put to explain how a dirty ball of ice could produce one of the most energetic forms of electromagnetic ...

... that produces regular structure on large scales'. Mistake solves problem New Scientist 22.2 .97, p. 17 We have previously reported the problem for astronomers that the Universe appears to be younger than its oldest stars. Now the problem is solved. Apparantly the method used to calculate cosmic distances was flawed. How convenient!

203. High Energy from Space [Books] [de Grazia books]
... is ready for the third chapter, which radically challenges a long-time history of the present world. Once that is done, a new short-time calendar of the holocene epoch is in order. Thereafter, the goal will be to prove the calendar - or if not to prove it, to establish it upon a basis worthy of intelligent discussion. Comets have been invariably a source of terror to humanity and linked to all manner of evil (see Figure 3). The many apparitions have been accompanied in all too many cases by the reality of collision. Planet Earth may have endured more than a score of space encounters with large bodies during the holocene epoch. The most recent occurred ...

... no real alternatives for over two centuries. The other general approach has been that of fiat creationism. This 6-day genesis has been affirmed in some theological circles as a great, if inexplicable achievement of The Lord. In this approach, the solar system (including the Sun) was suddenly brought forth from nothingness, along with satellite systems, comets, asteroids, meteor streams and galaxies all within the last 10,000 years. Fiat creationists resort to the first chapter of Genesis as their basic dogma, and opine on various interpretations of the six days described therein. We think that a grave mistake has been made, universally, by fiat creationists. We understand in their theology ...

... 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 ...

207. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... p. 16) Believe it or not, some astronomers are suggesting that the presence of water droplets and a less infernal temperature in certain layers of the clouds of Venus make it possible for some kind of microbial life to have evolved. Peculiarities in the chemical composition of Venus' atmosphere could also indicate the presence of bilogical activity. DISAPPEARING COMETS (Science Frontiers 134, Jan-Feb 2003, p. 1) The comets which originate in the Kuiper Belt are apparently different from those which come from the hypothetical and far more distant Oort Cloud. Both produce comas and fiery tails as they near the Sun, but whereas the Kuiper Belt comets then turn into cold, dark asteroids, ...

... an analytical experiment on mankind, historical inscriptions and legendary motifs often play the same role as recollections (infantile memories) and dreams in the analysis of a personality. In a prologue following the preface, Velikovsky summarizes facts and theories about the solar system and points to many questions that remain unanswered: about the origins of the planets, of comets, of life, of the ubiquitous legend of the Flood; about the causes of mountain building .111(1 of the Ice Ages, for example. The conflict is stressed between modern theories of gradual evolution (Lyell, Danwit) and the earlier one of catastrophic change (Cuvier). Velikovsky shows that the concept of ages ...

... Issue Contents New Insights to Antiquity: A Drawing Aside of the Veil by Richard Petersen (Engwald, Phoenix, 1998) Reviewed by Frederic Jueneman There have been hundreds- if not thousands- of titles dealing with catastrophic scenarios, a good many in recent years, with a concomitant flurry of additional exciting books and papers following the Shoemaker-Levy 9 comet impact on Jupiter in July of 1994. Concern about comets- and even worry- was an ancient pastime for writers and philosophers of old, but perhaps one might note that the more modern era of speculators on such things began with William Whiston at the close of the 17th century with his New Theory of the Earth, wherein he ...

And noxious creatures were diffused by him over the earth, biting and venomous, such as the snake, scorpion, frog, and lizard, so that not so much as the point of a needle remained free from noxious creatures."(77) Then the Bundahis proceeds: "The planets, with many demons [comets], dashed against the celestial sphere, and they mixed the constellations; and the whole creation was as disfigured as though fire disfigured every place and smoke arose over it." A similar plague of vermin is described in the Scriptures, in Exodus, Chapters 8 to 10, and also in Psalm 78 where it is told that ...
