451. Second SIS Cambridge Conference Report [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, and clustered in time if predominantly in streams of cometary origin. Bill Napier pointed out that the greatest immediate extraterrestrial hazard is probably that due to oceanic impacts, involving objects with dimensions greater than about 200 m (expected to recur on average about once per 5-10 thousand years), producing hemispherically destructive tsunami. The long-term threat from the arrival of a giant comet in the inner Solar System is comparable to that from the impact of a 1-km diameter asteroid, in that both have a recurrence interval on the order of 100,000 years and either could end civilization. During discussions the debate focussed on whether Bronze Age civilizations collapsed simultaneously ...

... ' theory on the origin and psychology of the great religions. In the aftermath of the European Jewish catastrophe, the dominant pattern which emerges reveals that academic interpretation has systematically misused documents along three modes in order to: a) gradually reduce the number of victims,(1 ) b) portray the victims as "participants in their own destruction",(2 ) that is, as somehow "guilty", and c) portray the killers as mere "bureaucrats", not actively bad but simply "plain folks" who "did what they were told to do" by "authority figures".(3 ) The first mode is obviously the most primitive and ...

... myth and history; approaches to historical records of catastrophes; and the reception of new ideas by science. The original researches of several scholars other than Velikovsky will be considered and their implications for the recent history of the solar system analyzed. For example, S. K. Vsekhsvyatskii's theory of cometary origins and Claude Schaeffer's archaeological work on the destruction levels of ancient cities will come under intensive discussion. How to Attend and Participate If you wish to attend the symposium as a participating scholar, please fill out and mail the pre-registration form on the following page to Symposium, Student Academic Freedom Forum, P.O .

... of Velikovsky's theories of catastrophism on the basis of radiocarbon dating procedures. MacKie believes that these procedures will ". . demonstrate the contemporaneity, or otherwise, between major environmental changes (such as altera- tions in the sea level, in the extent of the ice sheets, volcanic eruptions) and human events (such as migrations and the destruction of cities and cultures)." But here again MacKie's approach appears to me to be undermined by logical difficulties. How can radiocarbon dating of events prior to twenty-seven centuries ago be applied to Velikovsky without begging the very questions at issue? For radiocarbon dating procedures have been based on a number of uniformitarian assumptions, such as the constancy ...

... " a personification of the configuration at the time of its dissolution. The lower head is the planet Mars. It is so close to Earth at this time that its moons, Phobos and Deimos, have been portrayed as earrings. Above Mars is a prominent, maned Venus (in its comet-like phase), fierce and threatening Earth with destruction. Lastly, on top is a very distant, quartered, and vegetal, Saturn, already leaving us far behind. (If Wallace Thornhill is correct, Saturn was "pulled" toward the sun once it came within its influence, and this led to Saturn "running away" from the other smaller, less massive planets, ...

Here, the spin axis seems to have been tilted twice within the memory of both Isaiah and Hezekiah; about 2 degrees latitude. They even thought it "normal" in one direction! Wars were commonly planned around the predicted day and degree of destruction as was recorded in both Hebrew scripture and Greek heroic stories. (The Assyrian attack on Jerusalem is a rerun of the Greek's attack on Troy with the names and dates changed but the celestial fireworks identical. Always, no one threw any stones until the celestial marauder first broke down the defenses of the attackees. The electrical discharge accompanying ...

... they set about. However, they acknowledge themselves so far, that they were the Egyptians, the Chaldeans, and the Phoenicians (for I will not now reckon ourselves among them) that have preserved the memorials of the most ancient and most lasting traditions of mankind; for almost all these nations inhabit such countries as are least subject to destruction from the world about them; and these also have taken especial care to have nothing omitted of what was [remarkably] done among them; but their history was esteemed sacred, and put into public tables, as written by men of the greatest wisdom they had among them. But as for the place where the Grecians inhabit, ...

... lasting impact outside Christian orthodoxy. In 1882 and 1883 two books by Ignatius Donnelly appeared: Atlantis, the Antediluvian World, and Ragnarok: the Age of Fire and Gravel. Relying on global myths, Donnelly claimed that a massive continent called Atlantis once harboured a primordial civilization, but the entire land sank beneath the sea when a comet rained destruction on the earth. Both of Donnelly's books became best sellers and are still available today. Yet conventional theories of earth and the solar system remain unaffected by these works. Around the turn of the century Isaac Vail argued in a series of brief papers that myths of cosmic upheaval relate to the collapse of ice bands surrounding our planet. ...
