301. The Saturn Thesis [Journals] [Aeon]
... to early historical events. Then, farther removed from the mainstream, we see a chaotic mixture of claims ranging from the scientific to the occult: discoveries of Atlantis, newly revealed secret doctrines, and countless Doomsday prophecies and predictions (the latter might include anything from global warming to devastating earthquakes, from overpopulation to the return of the Doomsday comet). Add the imminent passing of the millennium and you have a situation that couldn't be more ripe for feeding public fascination and anxiety. Within the academic community, there's not just a growing scientific and scholarly interest in the role of comets and planetary upheavals, but the first signs of interest in myth, including the possibility that ancient ...

... of years when Mars was morning star. It was usually made as the result of a dream or vision in which the Morning Star appeared to some warrior and demanded it, but it might also be made as a result of some sign in the star itself, as when it appeared especially bright, or in years when there was a comet in the sky." (39) And it is this particular passage that Velikovsky tampered with. In his work he has it stated that "A human offering was sacrificed when Venus appeared especially bright or in years when there was a comet in the sky'," (40) which statement was unfortunately repeated by Lewis Greenberg ...

303. Circling the Rings [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:1 (Nov 1997) Home | Issue Contents Circling the Rings Henry Zemel Abstract The eccentricity and inclination of planets, moons, asteroids, and comets are linked in a peculiar way: the bodies in the ecliptic, and the moons in the equatorial plane have nearly circular orbits, while those off the ecliptic or equator are mostly elliptical. Among the planets, all orbits are nearly circular and in the ecliptic, except for Mercury and Pluto whose orbits are elliptical and considerably inclined to the ecliptic. Of the 32 major moons of planets, 20 orbit in the equatorial plane (inclination < 4 degrees), and nearly all of these orbits, ...

304. The Gases Of Venus, Part 2 Mars Ch.9 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... From "Worlds in Collision" © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Gases Of Venus A part of the gaseous trail of Venus remained attached to the earth, another part was torn away by Mars, but the main mass of gases followed the head of the comet. Of the part which remained with the earth, some became a deposit of petroleum; some, in th e form of clouds, enveloped the earth for many years, slowly precipitating. The part retained by Venus burned or smoked for a long time, as long as the oxygen carried from the earth lasted; what remained forms today the envelope of carbon clouds of the Mo ...

... unconventional thesis of Immanuel Velikovsky. In his best-selling and highly controversial Worlds in Collision, Velikovsky had argued that the planets moved on unstable courses in historical times, with more than one errant planet passing close enough to the Earth to produce global destruction. The most publicized of Velikovsky's claims was that the planet Venus once roamed the sky as a comet. Without going into the details of Velikovsky's thesis here, (1 ) I must emphasize that the initial direction of my own research followed the uniquely Velikovskian idea that the planets were the gods and that the great dramas of the myths related to interplanetary conflagrations. It was Velikovsky who (in an unpublished outline) also suggested that in ...

... Jewish tradition, preserving reminiscences of historical Velikovskian catastrophes. The beliefs of both groups being of equal value, scientifically (science does not and can not judge supernatural matters), I will present my opinions first and use the future tense when writing about the events described in Revelation. Anyone who has read the books of Velikovsky and knows about comets, rains of meteorites, clouds of dust, shifts of the earth's axis, earthquakes, rising mountains, and so on, will find familiar words in some passages of Revelation we will discuss: And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as ...

... only a short time ago not peace but wa r reigned in the solar system. All cosmological theories assume that the planets have revolved in their places for billions of years; we claim that they have been travelling along their present orbits for only a few thousand years. We maintain also that one planet- Venus- was form erly a comet and that it joined the family of planets within the memory of mankind, thus offering an explanation of how one of the planets originated. We conjectured that the comet Venus originated in the planet Jupiter; then we found that smaller comets were born in contacts between Venus and Mars, thus offering an explanation of the principle of the origin ...

Can they really cause rains of fire? No, sir, not a chance. Those comet tails are just about the thinnest gas you can imagine." COMMENT. - With regard to Venus, Asimov is playing a semantic game with the word "comet". The question is not whether any currently observed comet could cause such fires, but whether the atmosphere of Venus as a proto-planet could have done so. At the ...
