241. The Saturn Myth: A Tentative Physical Model [Journals] [Aeon]
... respective extended atmospheres as defined above). The potential difference between the two proto-Jovians resulted in an electrical gas discharge between them in which the Earth acted as a highly conductive part of the circuit. This discharge formed a glowing column. At the surface of each atmosphere the column was broad, narrowing with distance from each planet until a minimum cross section for the current was reached, after which the column was of constant cross section. The auroral brilliance of this "flux tube" dimmed the visible Moon. Perspective, and the broader cross section of the discharge column at and near the top of the polar atmosphere, gave the appearance of a luminous "mountain" from the ...
242. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... 3 , p.19, lists the "provenance of the Cimmerians" as "the only explicit self-contradiction in any of the works of Velikovsky." Is it not a venial pitfall in scholarly authorship, as it is dynamic rather than static? I take Velikovsky to have been writing up a reference that the Cimmerians came from Europe, crossed the "Bosphorus", and appeared in Asia Minor. Ask a brains trust where the Bosphorus is - Constantinople! This is also what Velikovsky's language first implies. But, as per Lempriere (Classical Dictionary), the Cimmerian Bosphorus divided the Sea of Azov from the Black Sea ". .. where a finger of the Crimea ...
243. The Saturn Thesis [Journals] [Aeon]
... to treat the celestial contexts of patterns (1 ) and (2 ) as the same. streams arranged symmetrically in straight lines. This motif actually embodies several recurring forms- raising some fundamental issues of dynamics. Repeated patterns around the world indicate a particular concentration of three, four, and five "spokes" radiating outward. The equal-limbed cross is perhaps the most common pictographically, but the five-pointed "star" of Venus occurs with great frequency as well. Is it possible that the preference for symmetry has distorted an original appearance that was not so neatly and "improbably" symmetrical? To answer this question one must take into account many layers of evidence beyond the pictographic. ...
... "Land of the Cat", and their chief was called "Diuc Cae', the Duke or Dux of the Cat tribe, a title formerly borne by the Dukes and Earls of Sutherland. Shetland was Shatland or Xatland (X = CH) and at Lunasting, Shetland, site of the original capital, was found a pre-Christian cross inscribed "This cross of Xattui-cuh (city) the Xatt", i.e . "This cross of the Cat in the city of the Cat." Caithness was derived from Kata or Kagi-ness, Nose of the Cat, and the Cattigat, leading into the Baltic, was "the Gate of the Cat". He ...
245. The AAAS Is Alerted To Act. File II (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... in the fact that in order to disprove him even on one point, a full book of fundamentals would have to be written, and existing textbooks serve the purpose and need not be duplicated. In order to demonstrate this, Lafleur chose the field he says he knows the best- celestial mechanics. His third reason why scientists were reluctant to cross pens with me will be stated below. Lafleur correctly observed that in Worlds in Collision "collision" evidently means a "close approach, and not necessarily contact." Then he made this statement: According to celestial mechanics, "after the last collision, whatever it was, the two planets involved would be left with intersecting orbits ...
246. Chaos and Creation [Books] [de Grazia books]
... temperature is expected to be exactly 750 K, which by measurement it is." She generated many millions of tons of burning pitch and petroleum that fell along a broad swath of the Earth that turned in her path . Countries grow rich today from the oil rains that ruined ancient "Arabia felix." And when she crossed orbits with the planet Mars, a mighty battle of the gods ensued which their human champions emulated. She stimulated new cycles of fear and new prodigies of careful astronomical observations to warn of her coming. Nor did her effects cease, for the Earth and Moon are scarred by flood, fire, quakes, and biosphere disruption that she ...
247. David, Solomon & Archaeology: Revised Chronologies Compared [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... for such a chronology, as well as considerable interest. An important group of inscribed arrowheads has been found, which can virtually all be dated (by epigraphy) to the period between c. 1000' (sarcophagus of Ahiram, king of Byblos) and c. 1200' at the earliest. (Cf. F.M . Cross, e.g . in BAT 1990 p. 535: from c. 1100' but note that the dates of texts listed as 12th century' by ibid 541 note 11 are mostly uncertain or very early 12th century' and that the earliest arrowheads remain (in spite of the steadily increasing number of known 12th-11th century' texts ...

... from Sangara. "The chariots, the cavalrymen, and the foot soldiers of the city of Carchemish I took with me. The kings of all the lands came unto me and embraced my feet. I took hostages from them. Before me they rose up and to the Lebanon they marched." Later in this undated expedition, Assurnasirpal crossed the Orontes River, marched along the side of Mount Lebanon, and on to the great sea of Amurru. He exacted tribute from Tyre, Sidon, Gubla (Byblos), Amurru and Arvad. He also went timber-hunting on Mt Amanus. Assurnasirpal and his army besieging a city. From a relief in his palace at Nimrud. ...
249. Eden's Flaming Sword by Isaac Vail [Books]
... flaming sword as it must have appeared "bathed in heaven" again and again. A perfect sphere of red or amber flame in the center of a flaming halo, a line of flame running horizontally through this center and reaching from side to side of the halo; another flaming line running at right angles to this, forming the first cross man ever saw. On the shining halo, at the points where the cross meets it, see four "sun-dogs" or "mock suns", almost as brilliant as the sun itself. Those who have seen the secondary rainbow, or the "shadow of the bow", will understand hot this gorgeous scene of prismatic colors ...
250. The Scenario of Exodus [Books] [de Grazia books]
... later on. This is a passage from a legend of the Jews, and has some of the typical markings of a fairytale: It was through the Ark that all the miracles on the way through the desert had been wrought. Two sparks issued from the Cherubim that shaded the Ark, and these killed all the serpents and scorpions that crossed the path of the Israelites, and furthermore burned all thorns that threatened to injure the wanderers on their march through the desert. The smoke rising from these scorched thorns, moreover, rose straight as a column, and shed a fragrance that perfumed all the world, so that nations exclaimed: Who is it that cometh out of the ...
