221. Noah's Ark -- Its Geometry [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... equal to the vessel's length divided by (L / 1+ 1.6180). This distance is 10,000 / (1 .6180 x 1.6180 x 1.6180) inches. The width (322.68 inches) was simply the required area divided by its length. Fasold measured 138 feet width at a crossing line. He did not measure the widest point. The measurement was at the crossing line forward of this point. The fitted curve shows the maximum beam occurs behind this measured point and not at it. No one in 1985 had tumbled to the principles controlling the location of the maximum beam. There being no transverse line of iron ...
222. The Sacred Theory of the Earth by Dr. Thomas Burnet [Books]
... suppos'd one; current upon the surface, which carry'd the water into the Mediterranean, and under it at a certain depth a counter-current which brought the water back into the ocean. But this hath ,neither proof nor foundation; for unless it was included in pipes, as our blood is, or consisted of liquors very different, these cross currents would mingle and destroy one another. Others are of opinion, that all the water that flows into the Mediterranean, or a quantity equal to it, is consumed in exhalations every day: This seems to be a bolder supposition than the other; for if so much be consumed in vapours and exhalations every day as flows into ...
223. Some Comments on "Still Facing Many Problems" (Vox Populi) [Journals] [Kronos]
... I should say that the interplanetary gas cloud solves so many problems that Velikovskian catastrophism can hardly do without it. But, I also agree with Ellenberger that the origin of it needs to be explained. Disc-shaped clouds are created by nova outbursts. In Velikovsky's cosmogonical reconstruction, the instability of the solar system began when Jupiter and Saturn - on crossing orbits - made contact, causing Saturn to go nova and lose a major part of its mass . PROTOSATURN The body that lost a major part of its mass and ultimately evolved into the present Saturn has been called "Protosaturn" somewhere in catastrophist literature [see "The Primordial Light?" SISR II:2 , pp. 36-38 ...
224. Forum: Do the Early Middle Ages Survive Only as a Sacred Cow? C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... from the Hegira and AD. They gave us the inventions and discoveries of the 7th, 8th and 9th centuries of which we have no contemporary reports. Our response regarding Islamic history is as follows: all the Persian conquests from 612 were reported from 634 as Arabic conquests. The Persians attacked Byzantium from 612, conquered Jerusalem and the Holy Cross in 614 and reached Egypt and Tripoli in 615 - this is the conventional story. The loss of the cross is a reason for Byzantium to invent additional time in which - with the help of an angelic vision - the Holy Cross can be recovered. The year 615 corresponds to the year 912. This is the year when the ...
225. Velikovsky like theory of gravity and magnetism [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... 95 10:30:31 -0500 The standard dynamo explanation of the earth's magnetic fields has never been verified in terms of measurements of sufficient properly oriented separated and connected currents inside the molten iron core of the earth. Such currents could explain the magnetic field of the earth if they were in the form of a coil connected to rotating conductive cross section discs of the iron core sphere in such a way that the magnetic field of the current carrying coil induces a potential difference between the centres and the rims of the rotating discs above the coil sufficient to drive such a current across the discs and through the coil. The apparent impossibility of explaining galactic magnetic fields in such Terms ( ...
... offer these sacrifices according to the laws of Moses in Jerusalem; and when they offer them, they shall pray to God for the preservation of the king and of his family, that the kingdom of Persia may continue. But my will is, that those who disobey these injunctions, and make them void, shall be hung upon a cross, and their substance brought into the king's treasury." And such was the import of this epistle. Now the number of those that came out of captivity to Jerusalem, were forty-two thousand four hundred and sixty-two. CHAPTER 2. HOW UPON THE DEATH OF CYRUS THE JEWS WERE HINDERED IN BUILDING OF THE TEMPLE BY THE CUTHEANS, ...
227. A Harbinger of the Exodus? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . Progress would be limited by the pace of nursing mothers, and of sheep and cattle: the slowest elements could not average more than 1 mph. Had there been 2,000,000 people, in files of five spaced four feet apart, the column would have been almost 400 miles long, and been uncontrollable; while the crossing would have taken between two and three weeks, which flatly contradicts the biblical record. On the other hand, 25,000 people would yield a column about 4 miles long, and a crossing time of four to six hours, consistent both with the biblical record and with common sense. In what follows it is assumed that the ...
228. USGS versus Fringe [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... From: Catastrophist Geology Year 2 No. 2 (Dec 1977) Home | Issue Contents USGS versus Fringe Johan B.Kloosterman Rio de Janeiro Some Fortean events are less damned than others, and some come so close to acceptance that they even transgress the boundary between fringe and mainstream, either to stay there or to cross back again, sometimes repeatedly. Some of these stubborn unusual events remain damned for only a few decades, while others stay on the Index of scientific priesthood for hundreds of years. From the orthodox universitary viewpoint only the damnations of the past are of importance. The case of meteorites for instance is quoted again and again. Their existence had been known ...
229. Sagan's Folly Part 1 [Journals] [Kronos]
... (p . 10): On p. 303 of Worlds in Collision (Section, "Of Preexisting Ideas' in the Souls of Peoples"), Velikovsky wrote: "The migration of ideas may follow the migration of peoples, but how could unusual motifs of folklore reach isolated islands where the aborigines do not have any means of crossing the sea? And why did not technical civilization travel together with the spiritual? Peoples still living in the stone age possess the same, often strange, motifs as the cultured nations. [Cp. Kubler, op. cit., p. 325.1 The particular character of some of the contents of folklore makes it impossible ...
230. Vox Popvli [Journals] [Aeon]
... John Dickson Carr and an Epilogue by Professor Harlow Shapley. The Poison Belt is an interesting piece of science fiction about the apparent death of Earth's entire population. This was caused by Earth's entry into a "poison belt" atmosphere which happened to be in its orbital path. Everyone survived since the poison was not fatal. The question that crossed my mind on reading this particular version was: Why did Macmillan commission Carr and Shapley for their contributions? Carr's Introduction is innocuous, except for a short discussion on the distinction between science fiction and science. Shapley's Epilogue, on the other hand, bears analyzing (even though it sounds amazingly familiar). Shapley's main criticism to Doyle's ...
