221. Fire From Heaven [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Fire From Heaven Phillip Clapham According to Philo [1 ] the world has been destroyed by fire as well as by water (a tradition also mentioned by Plato) [2 ]. Philo said that a stream of heaven-sent fire poured from above to create vast landscape wildfires (see also Velikovsky and his connection of this fire to petroleum from comet Venus) [3 ]. In the Bible Elijah claims to have summoned, or to have witnessed, fire from heaven, which consumed a captain and fifty of his soldiers [4 ]. Velikovsky claimed a blast from God' smote the camp of the vast army of the Assyrian king Sennacherib [5 ]. There are many ...
222. Thoth Vol I, No. 14: May 21, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... Ron Baalke : Douglas Isbell Headquarters, Washington, DC May 9, 1997 (Phone: 202/358-1753) Lynn Chandler Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD (Phone: 301/286-9016) Sally Pobojewski University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI (Phone: 313/647-1844) RELEASE: 97-92 HYAKUTAKE X-RAYS SHOW ABILITY TO MONITOR COMETS AND SOLAR WIND A supercomputer simulation of Comet Hyakutake's interaction with the solar wind demonstrates that resulting X-ray emissions can be used to monitor comets and solar wind phenomena, NASA- funded researchers write in today's issue of "Science." The simulation was conducted using an Earth sciences supercomputer at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD ...
223. Exodus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... came to an end because it had ceased to have the Mandate of Heaven' [3 ], who were replaced by the Shang dynasty, which survived until the late 2nd millennium BC, = end of LB age, when a similar set of events caused them to be replaced [4 ]. The Chinese fail to mention a great comet in the sky that threatened the earth at the time when Velikovsky located his errant Venus comet. On that basis the Exodus phenomena cannot belong to the 2nd millennium BC. At this point it is worth asking, who were the people of the Exodus? Were the Israelites in any way different from the Canaanites ? In the view of ...
224. Nor Heaven Nor Earth Have Been at Peace: The Contemporary Foundations of Shakespeare's Cataclysmic Imagery (Concluded) [Journals] [Kronos]
... (Concluded)Richard J. Jaarsma with Edward L. Odenwald Though obviously much affected by massive storms, floods, droughts, and lengthy periods of extremely cold weather, the Elizabethans and Jacobeans apparently reserved the greatest share of whatever capacity for terror they had left for the phenomena of thunder and lightning, and such cosmic occurrences as meteors, comets, and eclipses of the Sun and Moon. Lightning strikes, for instance, are minutely reported: September the 5th , at Alhallows, Bread-street, betwixt twelve and one at noon, was a dreadful thunderclap. It killed a water-spaniel at the church-wall side; felled one of the beadmen of the Salters' company, ...
225. Spectres [Books] [de Grazia books]
... be on fire. The globe carries lightning and thunder symbols as well as fire symbols. (Probably the lightning generated the moving legs of later representations.) The Chinese Emperor with a "Dragon Face," sat on the "Dragon Throne" wearing robes of state on which dragons were displayed. Dwardu Cardona has presented first-hand descriptions of comets that compare them with dragons [5 ]. The accounts range from England to China. The comet of 449 A.D . stretched over England from beyond Gaul to the Irish Sea, "a ball of fire, spreading forth in the likeness of a dragon, and from the mouth of the dragon issued forth two rays. ...
226. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... A review of this will be appearing in a later Bookshelf, but a slightly earlier morsel offered by Asimov in the June 1979 issue of Science Digest is worth noting here for its sheer inanity. Entitled "Our Ability to Destroy Meteors Can be Payoff on Space Cos", the main text deals with the likelihood and effect of meteors and comets striking the Earth, as a commentary for a TV programme in connection with the recent film "Meteor". Scaled down Velikovskian catastrophes peep through the text. According to Asimov, one of the smaller asteroids "might be pulled out of its orbit by the attraction of some planet - Jupiter perhaps - and it takes up a new ...
... From: The Mysterious Comet by Comyns Beaumont CD Home | Contents Part Three: Volcanic Powers And Limitations VI - The Key to Mountain Ranges THE earth's axis has shifted on many occasions in past days as geology demonstrates, and that it has so done means that the Poles are not fixed and immovable points. They vary in fact continually to a slight extent at the present time and we learn that the Magnetic Pole is moving westward. A planet moving in space preserves its equilibrium and its axis must respond to any irregularities. If anything substantial be added to it the existing axis must adjust itself to balance any irregularity, and the more pronounced it is the more must a ...
228. The Mythical History of the Comet Venus (Part I) [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon II:4 (1991) Home | Issue Contents The Mythical History of the Comet Venus (Part I)David Talbott INTRODUCTION Taking the mythically-based model of the polar configuration as a reference,(1 ) it is possible to reconstruct from ancient testimony the remarkable history of the planet Venus in prehistoric times. The integrity of this reconstruction will, in turn, lend substantial verification to the model by demonstrating that here- as in other instances previously noted- the model satisfies the requirements of a general theory: it accommodates and explains the data in a consistent way, while removing countless anomalies that have frustrated previous efforts to place ancient myths and symbols in a ...
229. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Last year it was a conjunction of Venus and Jupiter, calculated to be in June 2 BC. A chance to get away from Dec. 25th and celebrate Christmas at the summer solstice instead - at Stonehenge? Viral X-rays Science Frontiers 106, Jul-Aug 1996, p. 2 Fred Hoyle has suggested an explanation for those mysterious X-rays detected from Comet Hyakutaki. The rays were merely solar X-rays reflected in Earth's direction by a cloud of tiny carbon-containing particles released by the comet. In other words - viruses. Life on Mars Science Frontiers 108, Nov-Dec 1996, p. 1, New Scientist 17.8 .96, pp. 4-5,7 ,10, 24.8 ...
230. The End, Part 2 Mars Ch.9 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... Mars; and judged by the state of civilization at which mankind has arrived, conditions for life processes have been improved in some respects. But if events of this kind happened in the past, they may happen again in the future, with perhaps a different - fatal- result. The earth has come in contact with other planets and comets. At present no planet has a course that endangers the earth, and only a few asteroids- mere rocks, a few kilometres in diameter- have orbits that cross the path of the earth. This was disco vered, to the amazement of scholars, only recently. But in the solar system there exists a possibility that at ...
