81. Jupiter in Collision: in Search of Velikovsky's Comet [Articles]
... Jupiter in Collision: in Search of Velikovsky's Comet Milton Zysman Introduction "Of all the mysterious phenomena which accompanied the Exodus, this mysterious pillar seems the first to demand explanation." Velikovsky came to his catastrophic thesis through a search for a reliable chronology for ancient middle eastern history. This search, born of the realization that both Egyptians and Israelites alike went through a great physical upheaval, gave rise to the most influential work on catastrophism published in this century. Hebrew traditions of the red and poisonous Nile, the impenetrable darkness, the hot stones from heaven, the great winds and noise, the anomalous behaviour of insects and animals and the tidal effect at the Sea of ...

Introductory Remarks. Nigel Calder in his book "The Comet is Coming" (1980) calls V's scenario "the silliest comet theory of them all." In contrast, Peter Warlow, author of "The Reversing Earth" (1982), once told me in a personal letter that he was quite sure that V would "eventually be recognised as one of the greatest thinkers of our ...
83. The Cornell Lecture: Sagan on A Wednesday [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... my conclusion will be that the astronomers were entirely right and that the theory makes no sense at all." I will leave it to the readers to judge whether any of Sagan's subsequent remarks support this conclusion. So far, we have only looked at Sagan's introductory comments. At this point,he digresses into a long explanation of what comets are. This includes his account of a telephone conversation with a caller to the Yerkes Observatory, held during his graduate school days in Chicago. Sagan does both voices, his own and that of his inebriated caller: And the guy at the other end said, "Lemme talk to [an] ashtronomer." And I said ...

... mainly are from the Spectralanalyse der Gestirne, of 1890, by Doctor J. Scheiner, of the Royal Astrophysical Observatory of Potsdam, translated by Professor E. B. Frost, of Dartmouth College, in 1894. The matter connected with the astronomy of China is chiefly from Mr. John Williams' work of 1871,the Observations of Comets from 622 B.C . to A.D . 1630, extracted from the Chinese Annals, - - the star-names being from that or from Mr. John Reeves 5 Appendix 1 to Volume I, Part 2, of the Reverend Doctor Robert Morrison's Dictionary, published at Macao in 1819, with Bode's star-numbers. I have also ...
85. Comments on Chappell [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Sam Windsor Dear Marvin: I think Mr. Chappell (The Day The Sun Stood Still: A Comparative Analysis, Jr. C & A H July 1991, pg. 102) is to be congratulated on a well written and researched article. He is on the right path. The postulation that Joshua's long day was caused by a comet and not by Mars, however, has several weaknesses that should be accounted for. These weaknesses are: We haven't seen comets in the solar system with enough mass to significantly torque the Earth's crust and modify the spin axis poles. Even the Earth's Moon would have to impact the Earth (get within Earth's Roche limit) to deform ...

... From: The Mysterious Comet by Comyns Beaumont CD Home | Contents Part Two: The Comet And Its Work V - The Reason Of Sunspots THE cause of sunspots is another vexed question in meteorology, although it should not be so, for when all the circumstances are considered there is no such thing known in the universe as a miracle. Nature cannot possibly defy its own laws and accordingly the sun would not be able to maintain its heat and sustain its satellites unless in turn its fires were stoked. Whatever be the requirements of this vast incandescent ball of fire, 880 000 miles in diameter, no one can say, but apparently these necessities are satisfied because if there ...
89. More Than One Typhon [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... said, I must also report that in all the years since Worlds in Collision was written, AND DESPITE WHAT WAS SAID IN IT, I have not been able to discover one single bit of evidence that would tie the planet Venus to the event. All that can be said with SOME certainty, is: (1 ) that a comet does seem to have made its appearance in the sky during the Exodus; (2 ) that this comet was NOT the comet Venus; and (3 ) that an earthquake also occurred just before the Israelites left Egypt. At this point, I dare not say more. Kevin Weinhold wrote: Velikovsky wrote that he at one time ...
... From: The Mysterious Comet by Comyns Beaumont CD Home | Contents Part Two: The Comet And Its Work I - The Solidity Of Meteors A METEOR that passes across the heavens near the earth moves with such rapidity that it cannot be fixed by the human eye except at night-time, and then as a long and brilliant stream of light, sometimes leaving in its wake an afterglow of a gaseous nature. In the day time it is invisible except overhead as a ball of blue flame, or, more generally concealed by a vast black or yellow cloud betokening the presence of sulphur fumes, from which shoot terrifyng lightnings. Astronomers in some cases are beginning to remodel their ideas ...
