461. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... for 1980/81: Harold Tresman Chairman Bernard Prescott Treasurer Geoffrey Gammon Secretary Malcolm Lowery Editor, SIS Review Brian Moore Information Officer Val Pearce Overseas Publication Secretary. After the business of the Meeting, there was an excellent talk given by Dr Newgrosh on the subject of Venus Before Exodus. He outlined the ideas of Martin Sieff on the catastrophic destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, and made a strong case for there being parallels with Exodus and Joshua's destruction at Jericho. There was, he said, compelling evidence for Venus being the catastrophic agent - both from mythological and archaeological viewpoints. It is hoped that a fuller version of this talk will soon appear as a Review article. SIS ...

462. Scientific Prehistory [Books]
... compression and dehydration, vegetation becomes lignite; at still greater compression, it becomes bituminous coal; and at nearly complete dehydration, wood and vegetation generally become anthracite coal. At still greater adiabatic compression, the product is graphite. In the anthracite and graphite stages of adiabatic heating by compression and decomposition, however, gases are also generated by destructive distillation occurring simultaneously with dehydration. Finally, natural diamond is the ultimate product of extremely high compression sufficient to remove everything besides carbon, including traces of sulfur and nitrogen generally also a part of the original plant kingdom. This same general process occurs in sudden deep burial of animals to produce oil and gas. There are a few exceptions ...

463. Book Reviews [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... geological work originated in the USSR. Nearly half the book is taken up with a consideration of the causes of volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, cyclones and hurricanes and includes interesting and detailed accounts of many recent recorded such catastrophes and their effects upon man. Rezanov presents us with useful tables of comparison between the present expected frequency of and destructive energies involved in these and impact catastrophes. He finishes on an optimistic note about warnings and preventions, even to the rather star-wars scenario of blowing up any asteroid which approaches too close to Earth. The book starts with a general account of the supposed formation and evolution of the Earth and it is with the discussion of the formation of ...

464. The Rise and Fall of the Third Chimpanzee [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Those wishing to explain any facet of human behaviour as directly caused by recent catastrophies would do well to read this book and weigh their theory against the evidence that they will surely find Diamond has ingeniously presented for that very behaviour to be nothing more than a direct result of our animal evolutionary history. From language and art to genocide and environmental destruction he shows that Homo sapiens is not unique in kind, only in degree. He succeeded in convincing me that the wave of extinction of large animals over the past few thousand years cannot be considered separately from the spread of mankind. He is also very convincing in his arguments that past civilizations often caused their own demise by ruining their ...

... the Moon falls, the Earth is on fire, no stone remains upon another. ' Tremendous earthquakes, attended by volcanic phenomena, rack the Earth's broad breast. The great fire catastrophe is mentioned several times more, and with great insistence. The title of the poem is also significant: Muspilli means mould-spilling', that is, Earth destruction. The poem is supposed to be imbued with Biblical mythology. But many traits in its cosmological passages are so that we cannot help thinking it contains relics of old Teutonic traditions, which have escaped obliteration because of their similarity with the story contained in the Book of Revelations. The latter Book was really so well known in what is ...

... of uncertain answers. The Greek loxias means oblique, and is the term used for the ecliptic. He is the leader of the Muses. Scholars have often contrasted the intellectual nature of his inspiration with the emotional violence of Dionysus, but Cassandra and other victims of the Far-darter might have reservations about this. Oulos is an epic word meaning destructive, baneful, fatal. Apo means from, from a distance. The name Apollo would suit him well if it implied death from afar'. He is often described as Hekebolos, the far darter, as is his sister Artemis. But Hermes, who is very like Apollo, is Puledokos, guardian of the gate, and ...

467. The Scenario of Exodus [Books] [de Grazia books]
... their pathetic roles. There can be only one reason for these behaviors, and theologians, not knowing it, have labored vainly to explain otherwise: the great natural force - the body in the sky - that was operative would hear no plea, see no reason to cease, change not its course until it had completed its approach, destruction and departure in its own time, inevitably, remorselessly, heartlessly. Further the Bible is reporting after the fact; it had to give meaning to the fact; it had therefore to implant free will where there was no free will, call for solutions when there was only resolution, and present history in the catastrophic model of Greek ...

... about 23,000 megatons. The effects of such seisms may be felt in a radius exceeding 3,000 km. from the epicentre. We shall see in a further chapter that the amount of energy spent in elastic effects (earthquakes) fey the impact of giant meteorites may represent only 12 per cent of their total energy. The destruction wrought by such impacts is hardly imaginable! The very least that can be said is that they must have provoked world-wide catastrophes. We have, however, not only to take into consideration the destruction caused as a direct result of the blast and the heat waves. The `punch' applied to our planet by the Meteorite' impact ...

469. On Cosmic Electrical Charges [Books] [de Grazia books]
... almost always detected and measured when their electrons undergo some form of transition that defines the energy levels and reactions of the atoms. Electrons seem to be the monetary currency of the Universe; stars, cells, and atoms transact and transform to obtain them. It seems to us that the Solar System's development from creative-nova into binary, through the destructive nova which freed the planets and in the subsequent rearrangement and destructive encounters, is also a story of electron exchanges on the grandest of scales. The elementary principle governing Solar System behavior is that planets act to accumulate electrons from their surroundings, but in reality they are forced, by the Sun and by their orbital motion, into that ...

... on for several millions of years so that these fish, with their soft tissues, would be preserved in Old Red Sandstone in untold numbers. Velikovsky, citing Hugh Miller's, The Old Red Sandstone (Boston, 1865), page 222, states, ". . . some terrible catastrophe [was] involved in [the] sudden destruction [of] the fish of an area at least a hundred miles from boundary to boundary, perhaps much more. The same platform in Orkney as at Cromarty is strewn thick with remains which exhibit unequivocally the marks of sudden death. The figures are contorted, curved; the tail in many instances is bent around the head; the ...
