... | Appendix | Notes The Age of Velikovsky Chapter IV: The Common Questions The preceding chapters have provided a basic review of Velikovsky's suggested reconstruction of the recent history of the solar system. Now we will look at questions that have been raised about this model. One of the first and most frequently asked questions concerns the association of the word comet with the planet Venus. COMETS AND EFFECTS In Worlds in Collision, Velikovsky repeatedly refers to the "Comet Venus". The question is often asked: Why did Velikovsky call Venus a comet when it could not, by definition, be a comet. There are really two answers to this the short form and the long form. ...

Copyright Jane Vadnal Ancient recollections of interplanetary plasma?www.mythopedia.info By Marinus Anthony van der Sluijs, M. A., London. (Last update 4th January 2004) Comets or planets? On the face of it, comets and planets would seem to be quite different phenomena. From the earth-bound perspective of a terrestrial stargazer comets are tailed bodies blazing occasionally in the heavens. They are a rather random occurrence. Planets, on the other hand, are much less conspicuous, lack tails, and move along ...

44. The Solar System and Electro-Gravitic Theory [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon I:3 (1988) Home | Issue Contents The Solar System and Electro-Gravitic Theory Charles Ginenthal If electro-gravitic theory is correct it should, in addition to the celestial phenomena described and delineated in "The Electro-Gravitic Theory of Celestial Motion," also clearly explain the behavior of comets, meteors, asteroids and natural satellites. Can the theory account for the unusual rotational and orbital characteristics of these bodies left unexplained by traditional celestial mechanics? And most importantly, are the explanations of the theory self-consistent and in accord with observational data? We have previously concluded that small bodies such as comets, when characterized by relatively large electromagnetic fields, will pursue highly elliptical orbits. ...
45. The Cosmic Serpent by Victor Clube and Bill Napier [Journals] [Kronos]
... it is a book Velikovskians ought to welcome with open arms, even though it does not endorse all of Velikovsky's ideas. The authors are highly respectable professional astronomers, both working at the Scottish Royal Observatory in Edinburgh, and for years they have been developing an interest in the interaction of the Earth with fragments of cosmic debris, meteors and comets. Their paper in Nature [282 (29 November 1979), pp. 455-459] suggesting that such cosmic encounters could explain the death of the dinosaurs appeared in print before the Alvarez team announced their discovery of the now famous iridium anomaly in strata 65 million years old. Somehow the popular press missed the point that the Alvarez' ...

... he had domesticated the cattle; he had discovered or developed some of the cereals.; and he possessed a religion in which incense was burned before the god or gods. The legend of Phaėtaon further indicates that man had tamed the horse and had invented wheeled vehicles. In the Hindoo story of the coming of the demon Ravana, the comet, we read that he carried off Sita, the wife of Rama, the sun; and that her name indicates that she represented " the furrowed earth," to wit, a condition of development in which man ploughed the fields and raised crops of food. When we turn to the Scandinavian legends, we see that those who ...

49. Plagues and Comets [Books] [de Grazia books]
... From: God's Fire, by Alfred De Grazia Home | Issue Contents CHAPTER ONE Plagues and Comets Disbelief in the Book of Exodus, for the modern educated person, begins with the fantastic story of the infant Moses' survival and salvation in the bulrushes of the Nile, advances through Moses' encounter with the Burning Bush whence speaks Yahweh, ascends rapidly with the plagues of Egypt that follow his threats as Yahweh's messenger, and reaches a climax in the parting of the waters to let the Israelites escape and the closing of the waters upon the Egyptians. Thereafter the incredulous reader can only sigh as one after another lesser miracle occurs - water from tapping a rock with a wand ...

... From "Earth in Upheaval" © 1955 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Volcanoes, Earthquakes, Comets A great chain of volcanoes girdles the Pacific Ocean. The Andes in South America are studded with many volcanic summits, among them the loftiest volcanic mountain in the world: Cotopaxi in Ecuador is over 19 000 feet high. The Andes reached their present height only in the age of modern man. Magma intruded into the rock and lifted it; in many places magma reached the surface, broke through vents, and built craters. Most of those volcanoes, however, are already extinct. Central America abounds in volcanoes, most of them extinct or dormant; ...
