... From: Aeon V:4 (July 1999) Home | Issue Contents Comets, Polular Culture, and the Birth of Modern Cosmology by Sara Genuth (Princeton, 1997) Reviewed by Ev Cochrane Few things in life are as memorable and charged with unconscious emotion as the appearance of a brilliant comet. From time immemorial, comets have inspired dread and been associated with ominous portents. Ancient Babylonian astronomical texts link comets to the death of kings and other calamities. Similar views were common among the Greeks and Romans. Of a comet that appeared during Nero's reign, Tacitus wrote as follows: "A comet blazed into view- in the opinion of the crowd, an apparition ...

52. Egyptian Cosmology [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2001:1 (Jun 2001) Home | Issue Contents Egyptian Cosmology Akhet - The Horizon of Heaven or something else? by Aymen Ibrahem ( Abstract: The Egyptologists may have inappropriately interpreted the Egyptian hieroglyph symbol Akhet as the "horizon". In this article, the author attempts to demonstrate that the hieroglyph symbol Akhet stands for "solar eclipse" and not "horizon". He also puts forth the idea that the ancient Egyptians believed that the solar eclipse was the heavenly abode of the Sun. The author goes on ...

53. Plato And The Catastrophist Tradition [Journals] [Kronos]
... Alfred North Whitehead, as a series of footnotes to Plato. It was no understatement. Of all the thinkers of antiquity, Plato alone had his writings preserved virtually intact. Those works have conveyed to us, in a form of surpassing literary excellence, the central problems and essential concepts of the sub-disciplines which soon came to be categorized as cosmology, epistemology, ethics, politics, metaphysics, and theology. Yet the purpose and meaning of this vast work, despite its easy accessibility and the innumerable scholarly commentaries upon it, remain even today obscure, controversial, and often wildly misunderstood. In Worlds in Collision, Plato is cited on numerous, usually crucial, topics. The ...

54. A Life's Work? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... an unwillingness to suffer those he sees as fools gladly and no one is guaranteed a smooth ride. Atheists like me will not be happy with his unashamed creationism, yet I suspect that few in the creationist camp will be totally comfortable either as he argues for his own particular view (and timetable) of creation and pursues ideas about fundamental cosmology with scientific gusto. The contradictions are nicely caught in a quotation given from J. Keith Rigby of the Brigham Young University of Utah concerning a talk Cook gave to a Chemistry seminar there in 1962 (p . 110): "We did attend, I suppose largely because of the reputation Cook has as an uninhibited thinker. I ...

56. Velikovsky: The Open Minded Approach [Journals] [SIS Review]
... The Open Minded Approach Martin Sieff Worlds in Collision' by Immanuel Velikovsky was published in Britain and the United States in 1950. The thesis of the book was that the Earth had been ravaged by global catastrophes caused by planetary interactions within historical times; that these disasters provided the miracles and apocalyptic imagery of the Bible and the inspiration for the cosmologies of the ancient world. Velikovsky culled his reconstruction from the Japanese, Chinese, and Hindu civilisations, the Iranian, Sumerian, Assyrian, Hitto-Chaldean, Israelite, and Egyptian records; the Etruscan, Attic, and Roman theogonies and philosophies; Scandinavian and Icelandic epics, Mayan, Toltec, and Olmec art and legends.

57. News from the Internet [Journals] [SIS Review]
... planets moved close to the earth, producing electrical phenomena of intense beauty and terror. Ancient sky worshippers witnessed these celestial wonders, and far-flung cultures recorded the events in the great myths, symbols, and ritual practices of antiquity. A costly misunderstanding of planetary history must now be corrected. The misunderstanding arose from fundamental errors within the field of cosmology, the "queen" of the theoretical sciences. Mainstream cosmologists, whether trained as physicists, mathematicians, or astronomers, consider gravity to be the controlling force in the heavens. From this assumption arose the doctrine of eons-long solar system stability- the belief that under the rule of gravity the nine planets have moved on their present courses ...

Not unexpectedly, perhaps, the "greenhouse theory" put in a guest appearance; Velikovskian cosmology did not. The most interesting point, perhaps, is the comfortable distance in time to which the postulated untoward events are removed. Dr. Milsom has also pointed out that Professor Sagan's performance as an interdisciplinarian is somewhat wanting: he several times made errors in his comparisons of the Martian environment with terrestrial geology, the worst of which ...

(Dec 2000) Home | Issue Contents Einstein's Biggest Blunder Broadcast in the UK on Channel 4 in the programme Equinox, Mon 23rd October 2000. 9pm The idea that the speed of light is always constant, on which Einstein's Theory of Relativity depends, is the foundation stone of modern cosmology. Yet there were problems with the Theory of Relativity that perplexed Einstein himself. Now a group of scientists is finding solutions to those problems by proposing the heretical idea that the speed of light has changed since the Universe was created. In doing so, they are creating a new revolution in scientific thought. Space and time are relative ...

... mountain appears under many different names, accounts from every section of the world tell much the same story. The Egyptians knew the great column as the Primeval Hill, the Babylonians as the World Mountain. The mount passed into Hinduism as the cosmic Meru, into Iranian myth as Hera-Berezaiti, and into Chinese myth and astrology as Kwen-Lun. Mexican cosmology gave it the name Colhuacan. Its most familiar representatives were Olympus and Zion. But does not Olympus refer to the well-known peak in Macedonia, and Zion to the small hill in Palestine? In truth the mythical Olympus and the mythical Zion are the same mountain; only their terrestrial representations differ. When the ancients sanctified a familiar hill ...
