291. Venus in Ancient Myth and Language: Part Two [Journals] [Aeon]
... compared the planet Venus to a witch. In ancient Babylon, for example, Venus was known as the Witch-star. (47) The ancient Norsemen likewise envisaged the planet Venus as a witch, calling it by the name of nahtfare (" night-rider"), a common name of witches. (48) Witches, Dragons, and Comets The archetypal image of the witch is that of an old crone flying through the night on her broom with disheveled hair, spreading evil throughout the land. Certainly it is difficult to reconcile this image with the current peaceful movements of the planet Venus. Throughout our investigation, however, we have been open to the possibility that the ancient ...
292. Sagan's fourth problem: Terrestrial Geology And Lunar Craters (Carl Sagan & Immanuel Velikovsky) [Books]
... ." According to Discover (January 1994), p. 54, "The tusk and bone fragments [of the Wrangel pigmy elephants] were younger still, just 3,730 years old. Even Carl Sagan has come to the conclusion that certain Ice Age members of the elephant family survived well into historical times. In his book Comet, p. 273 Sagan suggests, "The last mastodon died perhaps as recently as 2000 B.C ." But if the mastodon survived into historical times is it really improbable that its cousin, the mammoth did not? Surely, if one form of elephant survived longer than assumed is it reasonable and plausible that the other forms ...
293. New Frontiers on the Stability of the Solar System [Articles]
... is no proof of the stability of the Solar System in its major bodies, because all this tells you that the stable ones are the ones you have been observing. The unstable ones you wouldn't see in a fixed orbit for a long period of time. In fact, we know that the smaller objects in the Solar System, like comets, meteors, asteroids, are in very unstable orbits. My friends and colleagues at the Department of Planetology in Rome have recently done very large computations, using a Univac computer, on comets, and have found many instances of comets which have been captured by planets, become satellites of the planets and then subsequently escape into orbits wildly ...
294. New Physics Supports Planetary Catastrophism [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Sansbury's reinterpretation of certain crucial experiments in classical physics at the turn of the century [6 ] will provide a unifying principle that eluded Einstein, unlocking the door to a new physics for the third millennium. Velikovsky wrote, A number of facts proved to me that the sun, the earth and other planets, the satellites, and the comets, are charged bodies [7 ], that the planets and their satellites have changed their orbits repeatedly and radically, and that gravitational attraction or the weight of objects has changed during human history. I thus recognized the fact that not gravitation, but electric attraction and repulsion and electromagnetic circumduction govern the solar system' [8 ]. ...
295. Victory of The Sun [Books] [de Grazia books]
... sunspot period was discovered and a high sunspot period, in the same past one thousand years. In 1978, two prominent astronomers in England, Fred Hoyle and Wickramasinghe, accused scientific research authorities of discriminating against their work in exobiology, which had postulated that plagues and diseases are derived from the debris of space, particularly the biophile environment of comet tails. There, germs are nurtured, and fall upon Earth with the dust and debris from time to time . It is noteworthy, in this connection, that popular traditions around the world associate comets with sundry grave human disorders- pestilence and war among them. In A Journal of the Plague Year of 1665, ...
296. Scientists support Velikovsky [Journals] [SIS Review]
... ) have suggested this as a cause of the reversal of the earth's magnetic field. They mention a correlation of the deposition of tektites, widespread faunal extinctions, climatic changes and maxima of volcanic activity at the reversal about 700,000 years ago. Some of the planets may have originated from one or more of the larger planets, and comets may originate from the larger planets and their satellites. In 1960, Lyttleton (13) described conditions under which Jupiter would become unstable and would break into two very unequal pieces. This instability would be enhanced by the gravitational attraction of surrounding mass. According to this theory, the later in time, the higher the probability of a ...

299. Angels & Catastrophism - Some Theological Implications - Part I [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... at all, but were rather creatures of the one God who were there at his command to do his bidding - hence the word angel (Greek angelos' = messenger). It has been cogently demonstrated by Immanuel Velikovsky in recent times, that the pagan gods were, in fact, heavenly bodies, i.e . planets, comets and stars. Consequently these heavenly bodies became recognised by the early Hebrews as angels. From this it is possible to translate the Scholastic notion of each angel being a different species into an idea of contemporary significance. If each planet, comet or star is an angel, then it follows that each would indeed be a different species since ...
300. Review: A Bronze Age Disaster. Exodus to Arthur: Catastrophic encounters with comets, by M.G.L. Baillie [Journals] [SIS Review]

Baillie Batsford, London, 1999, ISBN 0713483520, hardback £19.99 Peter James There is an urgent need for an authoritative volume presenting the scientific evidence for recent global catastrophes in a straightforward, uncluttered, manner - for the benefit of ancient historians and archaeologists, who still remain largely unaware of recent developments in catastrophism. Victor Clube and Bill Napier's Cosmic Serpent (1982), brilliant for the breakthroughs it made in astronomy, was marred by a weak control ...
