211. Notes [The Age of Velikovsky] [Books]
... the phases of Venus, and he used a telescope. Of course a lot of people claimed they could "see them with the unaided eye after they were discovered; however, this would not adequately explain the ancients fascination with the "Horns of Venus. 26. Mere is a difference between a drawing and a photograph of the same comet. An ultraviolet wavelength of light that the eye cannot see washes out the fine structure in the photographs and this often produces the common image of a comet. However, the drawings are more likely to give the type of impressions the ancients received, since we can probably assume that they observed first hand instead of forming opinions from newspaper ...
212. Venus -- A Youthful Planet [Journals] [Kronos]
... , wondered: "The star that smoked, la estrella que humeava, was Sitlae choloha, which the Spaniards call Venus. Now, I ask, what optical illusion could give Venus the appearance of a star throwing out smoke?" Bernardin de Sahagun, the main sixteenth century Spanish authority on Mexico, wrote that the Mexicans called a comet "a star that smoked."(7 ) In Europe, too, "the ignorant mass of people consider Venus as a comet." wrote Horatio Grassi in 1619(8 ) In the Talmud, in the Tractate Shabbat, it is said: "Fire is hanging down from the planet Venus": Venus "looks ...

... a major role. 5. Hydrocarbons were present in cometary tails. 6. Ancient chronology was several hundred years too old. 7. The Ancient calendars had to be revised because of the catastrophe. 8. Many species were extinguished catastrophically. 9. Religion was born in cometary worship and tied to phallic forms because of the shape of comets. 10. Fear of cometary collisions is inherited by mankind. 11. Vermin were deposited by comets which also provoked plagues. 12. Deities from Egypt, Greece, Meso-America, and elsewhere were identified with planets. 13. Pyramids were both astronomical observatories and air-raid shelters' for nobility and kings. 14. Planet Saturn, as ...
214. On Morrison: Some Final Remarks (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... raising this point until after the publication of an electrical explanation of the solar photosphere (KRONOS IV, No. 4, p. 28, Summer-1979), for that work may be relevant to the recorded history and present character of Venus. A few millennia ago, according to Velikovsky's researches, Venus was to all intents and purposes a comet, enormous and unlike modern comets in that respect, but nevertheless a comet. But what is a comet? This is a question that has been and probably will be debated for a long time. In concert with the electrical-sun hypothesis (Pensée, Vol. 2, No. 3, Fall 1972, p. 6), ...
215. Catastrophes: the Diluvial Evidence [Journals] [SIS Review]
... [7-9]. William Whiston (1666-1753) who succeeded Isaac Newton in the chair of mathematics at Cambridge University, agreed partially with Burnet. He thought that some of the waters of the Flood might have been released from the interior of the Earth but the major proportion had fallen as rain from the vapours in the tail of a passing comet. These ideas were presented in a book published in 1696. Whiston was aware that comets moved about the Sun in elliptical orbits of high eccentricity, because John Flamsteed, the Astronomer Royal, had made detailed observations of the comet of 1680. Also, Edmond Halley had deduced that the comet of 1682 (which subsequently took his name ...
216. The Pageants Of The Sky, Part 2 Mars Ch.6 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... images that do not appear to represent realities. We shall follow this rule: if there exists a fantastic image that is projected against the sky and that repeats itself all around the world, it is most probably an image that was seen o n the screen of the sky by many peoples at the same time. On one occasion a comet took the striking form of a woman riding on a broom, and the celestial picture was so clearly defined that the same impression was imposed on all the peoples of the world. It is well known how, in modern times, the forms of comets impress people. One comet was said to look like "un crucifix tout sanglant ...
217. Thoth Vol II, No. 7: April 15, 1998 [Journals] [Thoth]
... the ancient accounts? The key will be found in the symbolic language, the natural hieroglyphs (serpent, flowing hair, feathers, streams of fire). Once it is realized that, among all of the great cultures, the most common glyphs attached to the cosmic serpent - not to mention the serpent itself - were hieroglyphs for the COMET, the door is opened to stunning discovery. Suddenly one sees a vital principle almost uniformly ignored in comparative cultural studies. When an entire complex of symbols points to a singular celestial form, it is only reasonable to presume the presence of that form, and to look for corroborating references. If a unique form or celestial object WAS ...

... From: The Mysterious Comet by Comyns Beaumont CD Home | Contents Part Four: The Deterioration Of Climate V - Earth's Climate Deteriorates Now that we have examined into the question of the augmentation of the seas, for various reasons based on meteor deposits of gases condensed in our atmosphere, the next question to be resolved is that of the effect on climate of these accretions. It is steady and unmistakable. The world's climate has, in the course of ages, become gradually more frigid. There can be no question of this. I am not alluding to far-distant epochs when the earth in its first pangs of labour, revolving infinitely closer to the sun than it is now ...
220. Chaos and Creation [Books] [de Grazia books]
... . These words, along with the symbols of Inanna (Figure 31) part the curtains upon "a lady who needs no introduction to you," as a master of ceremonies would say. Many scholars deny that it could happen; yet no astral event of the ancients was so well reported as the career of the glowing and devastating comet and proto-planet Venus [3 ]. For nearly a thousand years it raged through the heavens periodically, encountering first Earth, then Mars; then Jupiter; then Mars again. It periodically- every half century- threatened the Earth and sometimes repeated, less harshly, its first devastation of the planet. The age of Venusia lasted from ...
