241. Velikovsky And The Cosmic Serpent [Journals] [Kronos]
... is not exactly the same as Velikovsky's. The main extra-terrestrial agent of destruction, according to Velikovsky, was Venus in a pre-planetary state; according to Clube and Napier, it was a certain asteroid-stream. Again, this book contains a lot of the authors' own theories about how and where, in the galaxy, asteroids and/or comets ultimately originate: a subject on which Velikovsky, of course, except in the case of the origin of his comet-Venus, did not touch at all. (Nor do I understand why Clube and Napier bring it in. The question was about recent Earth-history, and the ultimate origin of comets, etc. is not going to help ...

... the water vapor would cool to the dew point (which would be considerable below the boiling point) and cool rain would have fallen. Kenneth Hsu in his book, The Great Dying, 2 discusses what would happen if, the amount of water vapor thrown into the air would supersaturate the stratosphere... The approach of the large comet postulated by Velikovsky also brought innumerable meteors along with it. Many of these would have fallen into the oceans and thrown enormous amounts of water vapor into the atmosphere. The water vapor would rapidly recondense rain and snow out of the atmosphere. "Croft estimated that most of the vapor would return to the Earth's surface in a few months ...

... invalidating Velikovsky's arguments that there were changes in the orbits of Earth and of the Moon subsequent to -708. Huber claims that his arguments show that Velikovsky is "just plainly wrong". Let us examine these arguments in detail. We shall find that it is Huber himself who is "just plainly wrong". PART ONE. WITH A COMET BY THE TAIL. Huber cites tablets from Uruk IV that refer to "star, Inanna", and other tablets from Uruk III that refer to "star, Inanna, rising sun" and "star, setting sun, Inanna". Huber's principal source for these references is A. Falkenstein, Archaische Texte aus Uruk (Leipzig ...

244. Ishtar, Isis, Baal and the Aten [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 2003 No 2 (June 2003) Home | Issue Contents Ishtar, Isis, Baal and the Aten Michael G Reade It is fairly widely accepted that Ishtar, Isis, Baal and the Aten were all celestial bodies. Although Dr Victor Clube (see note) has claimed they were originally independent comets and it is considered by most that the Aten is an aspect of the Sun, I suggest that they were probably all the celestial body which we currently know as Venus. The common identity of Baal and the Aten was discussed in C&CR 2002:1 , p. 31 and looks to me to be a firm foundation on ...

... had omitted from his praises, David himself. David had taken over the position of chairman in 1991 and given a strong sense of direction to the Society. During his term of office we had held our first residential conference for over 10 years at Fitzwilliam College Cambridge and the reality of cosmic catastrophe had been amply demonstrated by the Shoemaker-Levy 9 comet crash into Jupiter last July. We were especially glad to see David at this meeting as he had suffered a heart attack earlier in the year. We hope that he will remain active in the Society for many years to come. Our new Chairman could not promise us another cosmic event but we did have another residential conference to look ...

... could still be none the wiser, despite our incredible advances in detection methods. As the distances increase further, the potential for an even larger undiscovered planet rapidly increases with it. There is indirect evidence that a body greater in mass than Jupiter is orbiting the Sun. It has been termed the Perturber' because of its alleged effects upon comets within the Oort Cloud. It may be sufficiently large to fall into the category of failed stars' known as brown dwarfs (7-9). These bodies are too small to have become stars, and may have been splintered off-shoots of stellar matter ejected from primordial star systems. They burn brightly when young, and are termed light emitting ...

Following the naturally stretched out biblical chronology of the Israeli kings as published in Volume X ...

... form a "string," and one wonders why the pattern as such has never been recognised before? The string of pearls is frequently located in space. Not only is it often imagined to be at the polar axis, but it was widely believed that the Milky Way, the auroras, the zodiac, or the tail of a comet, consisted of such a string of pearls. We should note that all these instances attest to the divergent symbolic expression of a single visual prototype. The string of pearls is invariably associated with the morphology and mythology of the world axis, constituting the segmented phase of the axis. Sometimes the beads or pearls are juxtaposed with the axis ...

Cross-posted from Cambridge Conference list. Last week's press release about Louis Frank's latest research findings about watery and icy mini comets which are claimed to impact our atmosphere at a rate of one every three seconds(!), has provoked a new scientific controversy among astrophysicists. For the non-astronomer, it remains extremely difficult to assess whether or not Dr Frank's findings are based on valid interpretation of observational data or whether the evidence ...

... lines. It is at this point that Petersen drops his bomb shell. With no further reasoned argument he concludes that there is an added dimension of space along which material can enter our world in violation of all the customary conservation laws. He then discusses Fortean phenomena as being minor manifestations of this fourth dimensional interaction and goes on to discuss comets in general, starting with Donnelly's theory that drift was due to a collision between Earth and a comet. He explains Velikovsky's Venus comet evidence as the result of a comet hitting Venus, as Venus could not be a comet as he defines them. Petersen seems to agree that catastrophes on Earth are due to impacts of comets but he ...
