291. A Personal Report on, and Irreverent Look at, the World Conference 'Planetary Violence in Human History' Portland, Oregon, January 3-5, 1997 [SIS C&C Review $]
... of over 100 'firsts' for it, including the wheel, the calendar, the measurement of time, the division of the circle, the hours, art, singing, music, dance, sculpture, brick, the kiln, courts of law, etc. Sumerian geometric shapes anticipated Greek mathematicians by thousands of years. Of course, if we follow Heinsohn, there is nothing extraordinary in this: the Greeks and the 'Sumerians'(i.e. the Chaldaeans) were contemporaries. Sitchin showed slides of the Solar System; Halley's Comet; the distribution of landmass on Earth; Sumerian pictures showing they were first with many things; Zodiac signs named by them. He claimed that a cylinder seal showed the Asteroid Belt and they described all the planets including Neptune and Uranus. Their Solar System had 12 members: the Sun, Moon and ten planets. Earth, depicted with 7 dots, is considered 7th planet, so they counted from outside in. He uses this as evidence that it was settled by people coming in from outer space. He claims the ...

... for sure what mysterious force or event has cleaned the solar panels of the Mars rover Opportunity. May 30, 2005 Luminous Crater Rims Do the rims of the Martian craters in the picture above appear to be glowing electrically? They are not glowing, but they look that way for a good electrical reason. May 27, 2005 Variable Stars The brightness fluctuations of “variable stars” have long puzzled astronomers. Perhaps the similarity of their brightness curves to those of lightning is the best indicator of the cause. May 26, 2005 Comet Neat and CME's When a coronal mass ejection greeted Comet NEAT, space scientists called it a “coincidence”. But in an electric universe such events deserve a second look. May 25, 2005 Looping Rilles on Europa For many years, the looping rilles on Europa were called “fractures”, but the model developed to explain them only highlighted the failure of the underlying interpretation. May 24, 2005 The Flood from Heaven The legend of the flood is one of the best known and most appealing genres of myth. During ...
293. Thoth Vol. III, No. 15 Nov 15, 1999 [Thoth Website]
... keeping us from really seeing 99% of reality. Mel Acheson firstname.lastname@example.org---- MYTHIC ROOTS OF LANGUAGE part II By Dave Talbott Roger Wescott says: The word "comma" has a root "kop" (" to strike or mark"). So there is a semantic connection with "apostrophe" et al., even though that connection isn't morphological. Dave Talbott responds: The meaning of the root _kop_ to strike, brings the _comma_ into alignment symbolically with the Great Star/Great Comet Venus, though I would add the sense of the "break" in a linear sequence, which is the effect of both the comma and the coma (comet). The "punctuation" of a sentence is analogous to the "punctuation" of history. You can see this in the dual meanings of the word "period" (Greek (_periodos_), for example. In Greek thought a full circuit or cycle of time is the "period". A period also denotes the completion of a sentence. ...
294. San Francisco, February 25, 1974 [Pensee]
... on the older periods turned up a big surprise... tablets from level IV [at Uruk... sometimes juxtapose the symbols [for 'star' and for 'Inanna'." Tablets from level III mention "'star, Inanna, rising sun' and... 'star, setting sun, Inanna.'... Taken together, these archaic texts constitute evidence that Venus, the star of Inanna, was known shortly after -3000." Huber stressed that "the Inanna symbol sometimes looks like the drawing of a comet," but he claimed that the similarity "is not borne out by the more elaborate representations." Velikovsky commented, in the discussion period, as follows: That Venus was observed before it came into conflict with the earth is clear from what I wrote. It did not come from Jupiter... on the eve of [the first encounter. It came thousands of years before, [during which time it could be seen. However, you [Huber are right: in that hymn to Inanna, Venus ...
295. Velikovsky And The Cosmic Serpent [Kronos $]
... that these seemingly unconnected discoveries lead to a coherent and unified theory of terrestrial catastrophism. What happens is that the Solar System, crossing the spiral arms of the Galaxy every 100 million years or so, has a close encounter with one or more of the dark nebulae. Large tidal forces are generated around the Sun. Comets, most of which orbit out to almost interstellar distance, are stripped out of the Solar System and thrown into deep interstellar space. Others are captured into the planetary system from the nebulae themselves, which are comet factories. The effects of such disturbance are felt even on Earth as an episode of bombardment by comets and their degassed remnants, the Apollo asteroids. The consequences of such a bombardment is nothing if not spectacular. In each episode there will be one or two missiles more than 10 kilometres across, coming in at about 25 kilometres a second. A body this size would generate a crater the size of Hudson's Bay arc; send a blast wave round the world sufficient to destroy life over a hemisphere; flatten forests worldwide; ...

... oppositely to the Earth's surface and buffered during descend by a plasma. Even under normal conditions, the positions of light and heavy gases are sometimes reversed in the disorderly atmosphere. The Great Chicago Fire, and forest fires which burned out millions of acres of land in Wisconsin, Michigan, Western America and Canada broke out on the same day in the fall of 1871. E. K. Komarek speaks of a peculiar fire weather and cites this case; Donnelly claimed that all were due to gas drifts from the tail of Biella's Comet which had not been seen on its expected three previous visits but was glimpsed without its tail in 1872, a year later, at which time a spectacular meteoritic display occurred [2. Donnelly offered a number of testimonials that the fires referred to leaped incessantly from different locations above the houses and forests and behaved as electricity in some ways (fusing without burning) and as a gas in others (asphyxiating people away from the blaze). A few years later another comet neared Earth and the Earth passed through its tail. ...

... because when Jupiter formed, the tug of the giant planet kept them from doing so. The Oort Cloud, still according to Bailey as well as a host of other astronomers, was formed from material that was catapulted out of the Solar System by a slingshot mechanism. Of course, no-one has ever seen the Oort Cloud, but, say the experts, it must be there to explain the behavior of comets. Collision and fragmentation among such bodies does however go on. Based on current observations, astronomers have retrocalculated that Encke's Comet goes back 500,000 years. According to their calculations, there ought to be 3000 Halley-type comets somewhere out there, but there seem to be only 20. Cometary Catastrophes, Cosmic Dust and Ecological Disasters in Historical Times Bill Napier (Armagh Observatory) There is, said Bill Napier, a revolution going on in geology and paleontology leading to a wide-spread recognition of bombardment from outer space. When he and Victor Clube published their first book on the subject in 1982, [1 only a few sporadic terrestrial impacts were known ...
298. Thoth Vol. I, No. 25 November 3, 1997 [Thoth Website]
... THOTH -A Catastrophics Newsletter- VOL I, No. 25 November 3, 1997 EDITOR: Michael Armstrong PUBLISHER: Brian Stewart CONTENTS: VELIKOVSKY'S COMET VENUS (9)...David Talbott HERE WE GO AGAIN...Wal Thornhill E-mail Conversations about Uranus and Neptune.... by Amy Acheson and Wal Thornhill---- Quote of the day: Any pursuit of understanding and meaning requires faith, the acceptance of certain underlying assumptions that are necessary if one is to use a given mode of inquiry...Proponents of religion emphasize the crucial role of faith, though it is unfortunately often presented in the form of uncritical belief....Faith is also a prerequisite for philosophical inquiry; the philosopher needs the confidence that such inquiry actually pertains to truth, that reality can be thought about. In addition to faith, philosophizing also requires reason. If a theory is internally inconsistent, illogical, or inconsistent with experience, it is unlikely to be accepted as sound philosophy. Science also requires a type of faith, although it rarely goes under ...
299. Tisserand and a Trojan to the Rescue [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... the essential 54-year timing of Mars-Earth flybys would be drastically affected, possibly even totally disrupted. This is intuitively obvious just by looking at Patten's Fig. 1, p. 82, with the close overlap of the orbits of Venus and Mars at perihelion. Using a standard estimating technique, 2 it can be shown that, during the Catastrophic Era, the chance that Mars would have passed within 0.04 AU (about 15 times the Earth-Moon distance) of Venus in a 54-year period is 87 percent. This distance is the closest Halley's Comet has come to Earth in 3400 years. 3 The chance that Mars passed within 0. 1 AU (about 39 times the Earth-Moon distance), still close by astronomical standards, of Venus in a 54-year period is 99.9997 percent-- virtual certainty. With Mars interacting with Venus, there is no way for it to keep its 54-year schedule of flybys with Earth, as Patten asserts. With frequent Mars-Venus encounters being so likely in the 9000-year long Catastrophic Era, Patten's idea that they met only once, finally, in ...
