... From: The Mysterious Comet by Comyns Beaumont CD Home | Contents Part Three: Volcanic Powers And Limitations IV - Eruptions and Earthquakes of Meteoric Origin IT appears undeniable that as a general rule the bulk of meteors strike the earth in a latitude towards the Equator rather than in the higher latitudes. This is not invariably the case, of course, because we have the evidence of the Aleutian Isles, Iceland, and other far northern sites to the contrary. What we might term the selective sites, situated in the sub-tropical or torrid zones, are not, I suggest, due to climatic reasons at all, but are probably determined to a large extent by the shape of ...
282. The Orion Mystery by Robert Bauval and Adrian Gilbert [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... past should be useful but it assumes that the orbit of the earth, for instance, has remained stable. Ignoring that (for the present), a computer calculated simulation of the stellar sky in the third millennium BC when the pyramids were being constructed should be very interesting. Unfortunately it assumes that the stellar sky of today, where comets are occasional visible manifestations, also existed in the historical past. The idea of a large comet, Velikovskian or Clube and Napier-ish, has not been included in the programme. It would be fascinating if a programme could be devised to take account of a disintegrating comet scenario and the possible effects on the inhabitants on planet earth - human ...
283. A Fire not Blown [Books]
... with the original sacral sky and electricity, but then dithered into what appeared to be disoriented and haphazard superstitions. The Hebrew word for life is almost identical with the Greek for blood, and so the Egyptian and the Latin. The connections are reasonable. By extension, when it came time to curse the memory of red Typhon, the comet or proto-planet that nearly destroyed the world, the Egyptians persecuted red-haired people as individuals and groups, threw a ruddy ass over a cliff, and sacrificed red bulls. One notes, thus, everywhere, the back-to-back connection of the reasonable and the fantastic. Language Q-CD vol. 13, A Fire Not Blown, Introduction 8 plays this ...
284. Untitled [Books]
... Sun, 56, and describes him as appearing dead, or pale, and grim, or deadly, 57. That is to say, the rival in the sky who has driven off or killed the Sun is pale, because obscured by dark clouds, and grim because it causes destruction, which may poetically suggest the action of Velikovsky's Comet Venus. Yet Demetrius replies that he too has been wounded, 59, pierced by Hermia's cruelty, and then tells her that she herself looks as bright as Venus in the sky, 60-61. Using these associations suggested by the words of the play, we can then derive more Velikovskian parallels. Hermia begs for Lysander back, and ...
285. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Pole star mystery New Scientist 29.5 .93, p. 14 Polaris, the North Star, used to fluctuate in light intensity by 10%. In the 1980s this rate dropped to 5% and now it is only 1%. It seems destined to stop pulsating in 1994, an event inexplicable to astronomers. Is Halley's Comet a relic of Planet X?New Scientist 29.5 .93, p. 15, Science Frontiers No.90, Nov-Dec 1993, p. 1 The discovery of another object beyond Neptune has led to speculation that this new class of Solar System bodies is part of a postulated Kuiper belt of comets. Some astronomers think this ...

... took historians with him and we should pay attention to them. Saheb wanted to know what was Great' about Alexander, who wrought so much destruction? After tea, Milton Zysman gave his views about meteor showers and the Pleiades etc. He suggested that these are witnessed when the Earth passes through showers which are the remaining debris of a comet or comets. What were the visual effects? What would it actually look like - a wheel? Could Venus have been expelled from Jupiter? The apparent birth of Venus might be better accounted for by visual effects resulting from going through a meteor shower. What was the origin of loess? It was airborne sediment. Was it perhaps ...
288. Natural Catastrophes During Bronze Age Civilisations [Journals] [Aeon]
... Bailey (Armagh Observatory) Mark Bailey began by saying that there has been an explosive growth in understanding the nature and behavior of Near Earth Objects. Advances have been made in observational techniques due to the space programs. What has come to light is a diverse population of different kinds of celestial objects, the relationship between which remains obscure. Comets, current orthodoxy now seems to believe, are the building blocks which shaped the outer planets, while asteroids might have shaped the inner bodies of the Solar System. The reason that the objects that make up the Asteroid Belt never accreted into a planet, according to Bailey, is because when Jupiter formed, the tug of the giant ...
289. Falls of Blood from Venus [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 4 No 1 (Jul 1981) Home | Issue Contents Falls of Blood from Venus Bernard Newgrosh Dr Velikovsky has produced numerous citations from ancient sources to show how falls of a blood-like substance occurred when a "new" comet (later to become the planet Venus) came into catastrophic contact with the Earth:(1 ) the Manuscript Quiche of the Maya, the so-called Papyrus Ipuwer from Egypt and the Book of Exodus all record the fact that the water in the rivers was turned into "blood". In addition to these examples, Dr Velikovsky refers to the Greek myth of Zeus and Typhon, the Finnish epic Kalevala and the lore of ...
290. The Primordial Light? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... havoc in our Solar System and that much of the confusion between Jupiter and Venus in the myths could be attributed to just this cause (6 ). As to the origin of the Venus-comet he says: - "The collision between major planets, which is the theme of the sequel to Worlds in Collision, brought about the birth of comets. These comets moved across the orbits of other planets and collided with them. At least one of those comets in historical times became a planet (Venus) . . ." (7 ) It is his opinion that Venus was born from Jupiter; thus Jupiter would have been in collision with another of the major planets(8 ...
