... Fifth Sixth Seventh Eight Nine Ten Problems Appendices Conclusion Sagan's sixth problem: Manna A taste of cyanide One may ask, why deal with manna since we have done so in the last chapter? Sagan has other fish to fry here and we shall make sure they are properly cooked. Sagan admits that there are hydrocarbons in the "tails of comets," but that "it is now known that comets contain large quantities of simple nitriles-in particular, hydrogen cyanide and methyl cyanide. These are poisons, and it is not immediately obvious that comets are good to eat." 1 Cyanogen is indeed poisonous. Even a grain of its potassium salt touched to the tongue can bring death ...

33. Chiron: Giant Comet, Agent of Catastrophe? [Journals] [SIS Review]

From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1991 (Vol XIII) Home | Issue Contents Chiron: Giant Comet, Agent of Catastrophe?sources: New Scientist 25.8 .90, pp. 48-51 Nature 348 (1990), pp. 132-136 The object Chiron was first recognised in 1977. It has an elongated orbit between those of Saturn and Uranus, actually intersecting that of Saturn, and for some years there was debate as to whether Chiron was an asteroid or a comet. If it were an asteroid it would be the farthest out of those currently known and much more extreme even than asteroid Hidalgo, whose orbit lies between the asteroid belt and Saturn. How ...

36. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1992 (Vol XIV) Home | Issue Contents Forum Ia. Comet catastrophes: a new synthesis?- the challenge, set by Bernard Newgrosh It is now 42 years since Immanuel Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision first saw print and whilst his ideas generated debate, controversy and even furore, they are still no nearer to general recognition. This is particularly so of Velikovsky's cosmic catastrophism which featured the planet Venus on a cometary orbit, the planet Mars on an erratic orbit, and Venus, Mars, the Earth and the Moon having near-miss contacts with each other. Mainstream astronomers have repeatedly rejected these ideas and in the strongest possible terms. They ...

38. On the Nature of Cometary Symbolism [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. XI No. 1 (Fall 1985) Home | Issue Contents On the Nature of Cometary Symbolism David Talbott and Ev Cochrane BACKGROUND In our previous paper (KRONOS X:1 ), we proposed a unique mythological connection between a former "sun" god and a prehistoric comet. The old god we recognized as Saturn, the central, polar sun of earliest remembered times; and the comet we identified as Velikovsky's comet Venus, an active participant in the events of Saturn's epoch. Numerous myths and closely related symbols, we suggested, appear to associate a comet-like Venus with the band of the "enclosed sun" , the ancient image of Saturn ...

40. One Of The Planets Is A Comet, Part 1 Venus Ch.8 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... From "Worlds in Collision" © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents One Of The Planets Is A Comet Democritus (circa -460 to circa -370), a contemporary of Plato and one of the great scholars of antiquity, is accused by the moderns of not having understood the planetary character of Venus.(41) Plutarch quotes him as speaking of Venus as if it were not one of the planets. But apparently the author of the treatises on geometry, optics, and astronomy, no longer extant, knew more about Venus than his critics think. From quotations which have survived in other authors, we know that Democritus built a theory of the ...
