271. The Day the Sun Stood still [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... . Moreover, the fairest virgin of the tribe was decked out in a war costume just like Minerva's, complete with armor, spear and shield. Clearly, this is an excellent example of how faithfully an illiterate tribe can preserve traditions about past catastrophes! Habakkuk offered another clue as to Minerva's identity. He described the "plague and pestilence" that followed Yahweh's glittering spear on the day the Sun stood still. What type of celestial body could be said to cause plagues? In antiquity, there was but one answer: a comet. To cite one example among many, the historians of the Eastern Roman Empire recorded the apparition of a comet in the year 531 AD: Constantinople was shaken by earthquakes, the Sun's orb was dimmed and a period of plagues ensued. 10 These were immediately associated with this particular comet, which is now known to have an orbital period of 575 years. In modern times, the idea of "Cosmic panspermia" has gained many advocates; this theory postulates, in brief, that comets passing close to Earth may spread ...
272. Trisms and Planetary Iconography [The Velikovskian $]
... of the vertical beam of the cross. A face, resembling that of Jesus, appears superimposed on a cross within the object on the right. A lion's head appears within the object on the left. Figure 32, is my rendition of a section of a painting which originally depicts St. Jerome and St. Francis witnessing the Crucifixion. I have excluded the two saints and have outlined the crucified figure and the celestial symbols above him. The celestial object on the left side of the picture has a tail and resembles a comet. The object on the right is a dark globe. Figure 33, is my sketch of a reliquary of Pepin of Aquitaine which was made before 830. Here, one of the celestial objects is a rosette. The other object is crescented, its illumination coming from below. Note that both objects appear within a swarm of flower-like trisms. Other depictions substitute mythological or religious characters for these celestial objects. Weeping archangels bearing horn-like instruments, one dark and one light, appear as in Figure 34, which is my rendition ...
273. Nemesis for Evolutionary Gradualism? [SIS C&C Review $]
... detected a 26 Myr cycle of extinctions in the marine fossil record over the past 250 Myr. Michael Rampino and Richard Stothers think the periodicity is near 30 Myr. (Illust. J. Abery) Another previous suggestion was that of Jack Hills, who considered that the Sun and some other star of similar size might come within 3000 Astronomical Units (A.U.) of each other on average perhaps once every 500 Myr [60. This would disrupt the comets of the Solar System and during the calculated 10 Myr lifetime of the comet shower, between 10 and 200 comets might be expected to hit the Earth, of which one might be a big one. Again, though, the periodicity does not fit the extinction data. In the light of the conclusions of Raup and Sepkoski, two groups of American astronomers pointed out independently that effects similar to those postulated by Hills, but with a shorter periodicity, would occur if the Sun has a small companion star going round it in an eccentric orbit of semi-major axis 88,000 A.U. In the model ...
274. Senmut and Phaeton [SIS C&C Review $]
... shown as floating along at a level slightly below that of Orion, exactly where they should be if the world were upside down. Given this same upside-down situation, the ecliptic would also pass close below Scorpius on its southern side. On the northern panel of Senmut, we find a bull-like animal floating along extremely close below Scorpius. It is clearly on or near to the ecliptic and it seems reasonable at least provisionally to accept Dr Velikovsky's claim that bull- or cow-like animals in the sky will be representations of Venus as a comet, especially as this one appears to be in the act of being struck down by a god-like figure. Moreover, the bull is clearly depicted as moving from right to left close under and slightly to the south of Scorpius, and this is the correct direction of movement for a typical planet or comet moving along the ecliptic when the world is upside down and rotating in the opposite direction to normal. (Note: It will be shown later that the figures on the other panel are not wholly aligned as required by this ...

276. New Physics Supports Planetary Catastrophism [SIS C&C Review $]
... , planetary magnetospheres are recognised as Langmuir plasma sheaths surrounding electrically charged planets rather than magnetically contained plasma shock structures in the solar wind. It is of particular interest therefore to note the report last year of the discovery of plasma strings from Venus reaching the Earth's orbit during conjunction [16. Plasma strings are diagnostic of electric (Birkeland) currents flowing from Venus. However, the most dramatic orbital adjustment will occur when a planet is discharging strongly so that the plasma tail is visible, in other words when it is behaving like a comet. Comets today are noted for their non-Newtonian accelerations. Given the global references to the Venus comet, it is not quite so surprising that it now has a near circular orbit. This new model of gravity supports the purely electrical calculations of Eric Crew [17 who arrived at a time-scale for Venus to spiral into its present circular orbit from the vicinity of Jupiter or Saturn in the order of 100 years. When planets and moons are close enough, a more violent form of charge exchange may occur. It is then that ...

... of the galaxy is necessary to make some kind of sense out of problems inside the solar system. If the galaxy is electrified, as [C.E.R.Bruce supposes, that fact cannot help but have major implications for the solar system. If the galaxy is not electrified, it would seem to me that prospects will ever remain poor for reconciling evidence of electrification within the solar system and celestial motions that seem to deny that evidence. Back toward the beginning of this paper I promised to return to the subjects of space-charge sheaths and comet tails. Actually, in terms of the postulated electrical discharge centered on the sun, these would appear to be not two subjects, but merely two aspects of a single subject. A comet on an extremely eccentric orbit spends by far the greater part of its time in the uttermost parts of the solar system. This is because, according to Kepler's Laws, orbital speeds near aphelion are so much less than near perihelion. Supposing, then, that space potentials in such regions are vastly greater, in the negative sense, ...
278. A Harbinger of the Exodus? [SIS C&C Review $]
... cosmic intruder, and Moses's age as recorded in the Torah, are used. Whether these data are correct in terms of current solar years is open to question [20. However, if there were transitions between lunar and solar year calendric systems, Moses's lifetime would surely have been the period of greatest confusion. It is by no means certain what corrections (if any) should be applied to ages given in the Torah: moreover similar (but not necessarily identical) corrections may need to be applied to the data from which comet periods were deduced. Moses is recorded as having been 80 years old at the time of the Exodus. If Velikovsky's comet had approached Earth 52 years earlier, Moses would have been about 28 years old, probably in the early years of his exile. If he then recognised the flyby as the same type of visitation described by his Egyptian tutors, he could anticipate at least one further visitation 52 years later. Thus a close cometary flyby event during the early years of Moses' exile could have acted to him as a ...

... of a self-repairing capacitor. May 30, 2006 The Flood from Heaven The legend of the flood is one of the best known and most appealing genres of myth. During the past few centuries, missionaries and anthropologists have collected hundreds of versions from all parts of the world. Even Africa and Australia, long thought to lack proper parallels to the deluge of Noah, have now been shown to have their share. May 29, 2006 Deep Impact and Shoemaker-Levy 9 To place the Deep Impact events in perspective, advocates of the electric comet model remind us of the crash of the comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 into Jupiter in 1994. May 26, 2006 Electric Lights on Saturn The discovery of electric currents everywhere in space makes the meteorological vocabulary of astrophysicists obsolete. May 25, 2006 Comets, Gravity, and Electricity The study of comets in recent years has revealed many anomalies yet to be understood by comet observers. Most importantly, the new discoveries accent the inability of gravitational theory to account for the full range of comet behavior. May 24, 2006 Electric Currents Big and ...
