... " [20 Crater counting and the random distribution puts the entire surface age at 500 million years. It is therefore generally concluded that any old surface was wiped clean by a cataclysmic event at that time and remained volcanically quiet since then. The high degree of circularity of most craters suggests that whatever created them acted largely perpendicular to the surface, which is highly unlikely for impacts. Such crater circularity is also a feature on our Moon, the moons of Mars (Figure 4), oddly shaped asteroids, and the nucleus of comet Halley where the cratering process may have been observed in action (Figure 5). Figure 4. View of the 17km long asteroid 951 Gaspra (top), taken by the Galileo spacecraft. The smallest details are 55 metres across. Deimos (left) and Phobos (right), the moons of Mars, are shown for comparison. Note the craterlets on the rim of the large crater on Phobos. Figure 5.

... and forbidding planet, and affirming that it had been devastated by a cosmic body in ages past with the loss of its oceans and atmosphere, accompanied by massive displacements of its crust. He also summarizes a considerable body of contemporary efforts to resuscitate catastrophism by world class scholars, who themselves are no less equally concerned that our own planet Earth is exposed to grave dangers from space in the form of rogue comets and asteroids. It's edifying to realize how perceptions have changed over just a couple of decades, and especially since the well-publicized comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 did its thing on Jupiter back in July 1994! Since then there has been a raft of articles, books, and films depicting excitingly graphic catastrophic scenarios, as well as a rising ground swell of public opinion for governmental agencies to institute sky-watch programs to alert us of impending doom. Characteristically, most governments have merely paid lip service to the perceived problem with exceedingly modest funding. NASA has yet to effectively implement its mandate, leaving the task mainly to amateur and private groups. The devastation wreaked on the Mars ...

225. Comets, Dragons and Prophets of Doom [SIS Internet Digest $]
... Comets, Dragons and Prophets of Doom 28 May 1998 From Andrew Yee <ayee@nova.astro.utoronto.ca> wrote: Particle Physics& Astronomy Research Council, Swindon, England. Contacts: Charlotte Allen, PPARC Press Office charlotte_allen@pparc.ac.uk Dr William Napier, Armagh Observatory wmn@star.arm.ac.uk Wednesday 20th May 1998: 08/98 ANCIENT MYTHS AND TREE RINGS POINT TO GIANT COMET'S VISIT TO EARTH [http://www.coi.gov.uk/coi/depts/GPP/coi1810e.ok Ancient myths, tree ring studies and archaeological evidence all confirm that a rare giant comet may have visited the Earth only a few thousand years ago, raining fireballs and meteors in its wake. Dr Bill Napier, astronomer at Armagh Observatory, and Dr Victor Clube of Oxford and Armagh Universities (sic), have investigated the doom-laden cosmic myths of early civilisation. From the Persian prophet Zooraster, who in 500 BC predicted the end of the world caused by 'a huge comet sent by Satan', to the description in the Book of Revelations of a 'burning mountain' falling from the sky, early history is ...

226. The Scientific Mafia [Pensee]
... one of the most fascinating chapters in the entire history of thought; and it is one which is still unfolding. This paper can be no more than a sketch of a sketch of it. Those who wish to know more can best begin by reading "The Velikovsky Affair," ed. A. de Grazia. A book called Worlds in Collision was published in the USA in 1950. According to its author, Venus as a planet is only some 3,500 years old. The proto-planet, in effect an enormous comet, had originated, at some earlier time, by disruption from Jupiter. It moved for centuries on a very eccentric orbit, and about 1500 B.C. made its two closest approaches to the Earth. During the eighth and seventh centuries B.C., the comet-Venus repeatedly approached Mars, and Mars in turn menaced our planet. Only after all these encounters did Venus finally lose its last cometary characteristics and settle down to its present planetary behavior. The effects of these encounters, especially the earlier ones, on the Earth, are ...

... Itinerarium Kambiae of Giraldus Cambrensis, who:'..does not refer to any consciousness of guilt on the part of Myrddin; his emphasis is on the dreadful character of the vision, which he regards as the cause of Myrddin's lapse'. Interestingly, the battle of Arfderydd is recorded in the oldest text of the Annales Cambriae as occurring in AD 573- which reminds me of AD 536 'event' and the upheaval of the 6th century. Could this tale of the 'vision' by the Merlin figure be a recollection of a fragmenting comet/asteroid 'event', with the 'tremendous din' being a Tunguska-like airburst? Could the given date of AD 573 for the battle of Arfderydd be out by 37 years? In South-East Wales, the tradition is that Arthur was King of Glamorgan and Gwent (Morganwg), being the son of King Meurig, who was son of King Tewdrig. 'Arthur' in old Welsh was Arthrwys, traditionally referred to as Arthrwys ap Meurig ap Tewdrig. There is still confusion about exact dates for specific Arthurian battles, which were fought ...

... one of these areas but the bush was in such a tangle that we had to give it up." (Ref. 3) Photographs accompanying the articles confirm some of the devastation. 1995. Northeastern Brazil. "Scientists in Brazil's northeastern state of Piaui are baffled by a crater that was punched into the tropical rain forest shortly after witnesses reported seeing a bright light streak across the sky. Researchers are uncertain whether the crater, 16 feet wide and 32 feet deep, was left by a meteorite or a piece of a comet. Physicist Paulo Frota of the University of Piaui believes it was caused by a block of ice from a comet because the surrounding vegetation is not burned and the crater's rim is not raised."

Comet Smith-Tuttle. At a conference in Sydney last October, astronomer D. Steele announced that comet SmithTuttle is heading towards a possible impact with earth on August 14, 2116. This 3.1-mile-diameter chunk of ice would have the destructive power of 20 million megatons (1.6 million Hiroshima bombs).

230. Did a half million meteors fall on the carolinas? [Science Frontiers Website]
... the areas of the bays. Floyd continues with a brief history of the Carolina Bay region and then reviews some of the theories of origin that have been proposed. Two now-discarded mechanisms of formation invoked: (1) immense schools of spawning fish; and (2) icebergs stranded as the Ice Ages waned. In presenting today's favorite theory, Floyd quotes from H. Savage's book The Mysterious Carolina Bays: "'These half-million shallow craters represent the visible scars of but a small fraction of the meteors that fell to earth...when a comet smashed into the atmosphere and exploded over the American Southeast,' Savage wrote. 'Countless thousands of its meteorites must have plunged into the sea beyond, leaving no trace; while other thousands fell into the floodplains of rivers and streams that soon erased their scars.'" (Floyd, E. Randall; "Comet May Have Created Carolina Bays," Birmingham News, May 16, 1992. Cr. E. Kimbrough.) Comment. Floyd neglected to mention that D. Johnson, a critic of the comet theory ...
