... and to foster a wider debate as to the interpretation of new data. AEON will pursue an interdisciplinary approach. In addition to providing a service to researchers in catastrophist studies, we offer the general reader the possibility of sharing in exciting discovery. AEON is not an institutional journal with a finished product. The papers presented here are still in evolution, looking for comment and criticism from others. Publication in this symposium will, as a rule, involve little or no refereeing and minimal editing, with the primary responsibility for technical accuracy and proofreading resting on the contributors themselves. Specialists in the affected fields are asked to challenge the presented views or to offer alternative explanations of the data ...

... to advertise it. At the same time that we are expanding our publishing horizons, we would also like to announce the inauguration of an aggressive attempt to make the latest research available to a larger audience via Internet. As many of you already know, Internet offers a wide variety of News groups discussing such topics as astronomy, mythology, evolution, ancient history, etc. As we go to press, Talbott, Cardona and myself are engaged in daily debate with defenders of the status quo over the significance of Velikovsky's general thesis of planetary catastrophism. Although the debate has only just begun, one thing is clear: The Velikovsky-affair is still going strong. In our next issue ...

... all fossil biomass, strip hydrogen progressively from the abundant foreign methane and yield alkane hydrocarbons and, at the end of the process, terminal carbon as coal or asphaltite. Because orthodoxy has not embraced the idea of generation of higher carbon numbered hydrocarbons from methane, or the concept of carbon addition to peat in coalification, let us review the evolution of thinking that has led to the proposed viewpoint. In antiquity, the Greeks named the oil they found in rocks "petroleum,"- that is "rock oil"- to distinguish it from oil obtained by compressing olives or rendering animal products. To them, rock oil was self-evidently "abiogenic," and coal was " ...

... accompanying text of the slide lecture that Wallace Thornhill presented at Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington, in 1997. "Thornhill's presentation offers a visual invitation to toss aside the straightjacket of paradigm paralysis and to explore the Solar System from an electric point of view. He covers an enormous range of phenomena, from subatomic particles through stellar evolution, floodlighting our understanding of the universe with insights garnered from mythical symbols, space probes, and the plasma physics lab .. . "Thornhill found his motivation to leave the comfortable highway of orthodox astronomy and explore the lonely out-back of a new paradigm in the study of catastrophist mythology. Along the way, he incorporated insights from plasma ...

... , a single tooth, a plow, a spade, a sword, all of which relate to the appearance of the planet and its stream of debris. Told and retold in myth and symbol so ancient and so diffused through veils of time and experience, the echoes of these events have gone generally unrecognized. Writes Talbott: "The evolution of this configuration, I am suggesting, is the history of the ancient gods. And the global patterns of myth, ritual, and symbol have no other reference!" (p . 46.) The model can be tested. As Talbott claims: "It is specific enough to be easily falsified on its own ground ( ...

556. Celestial Rings [Journals] [Aeon]
... that the ecliptic is 7-deg off the solar equator. Using the solar equator as a base would place Earth's orbital inclination at about 7-deg. Henry Zemel replies: As Mr. Smith probably knows, mainstream literature assumes that gravitational forces determine the trajectories of bodies in the Solar System. Although my hypothesis favors the inclusion of electromagnetic forces in the evolution of planetary orbits, I don't see much of a role for diamagnetism. It is a small force operating at the molecular level, which is unlikely to affect the particles that constitute planetary rings. Mr. Smith is correct in noting that there are many ways to look at orbital inclinations other than in an Earth-centered manner. One approach ...

... was responsible for the Deluge. Whiston's views, as it turns out, were fairly common in the Cambridge circle. Newton and Halley shared very similar views, in fact. Although her subject was the period prior to the 19th century, Genuth includes a brief appendix on modern day attempts to resurrect cometary catastro-phism as an important factor in the evolution (and extinction) of life on Earth. Here she summarizes the theories of Walter Alvarez et al, Fred Hoyle, and others. Sadly, Genuth does not mention Velikovsky or his seminal influence on so many modern day catastrophists. Such oversights notwithstanding, catastrophists of all stripes will find something of interest in this book. In tracing ...

In the words of the Lunar Prospector researcher: "Compositional measurements show that the well-known impact basin Mare unlike any other spot on the moon, which theories of lunar evolution will have to account for." [8 ] What could this mean? Lunar scientists backtracked to rethink their theory. They introduced the assumption that the Moon had already been orbiting Earth at the time, and that it had achieved its present phase-lock before the molten stage was finished- all of which events are supposed to have transpired ...

... Egyptian history made by the priest of Sebenytus, Manetho, to tickle his Greekspeaking countrymen. The consequences of dogged devotion to Manetho, whose blatant lies have yet to diminish his authority in the Western Enlightenment of Christendom, are plainly to be seen in the last chapter of John Wilson's The Burden of Egypt, where a thousand years of cultural evolution are swiftly surveyed in less than thirty pages. Professor Wilson, whose notions of the Hyksos conquerors of Mizraim are notorious, clings to the belief that "the first successful invasion of Egypt for a thousand years" was the effort of Piankhi the Ethiopian, which led to the alleged 23rd dynasty. [7 ] Wilson dated this war's ...

... gave Lowell a mixed reaction: some astronomers saw the canals and oases and others did not. For 80 years since Schiaparelli's "canali" the matter was unresolved, until the space missions of Mariner 6, 7, and 9, Viking 1 and 2, and several Soviet attempts appeared in the sky. At issue was another proof of evolution- by example on another planet- an what forms such evolution might take. Comic strip writers of Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers, among others, applied their imaginations. Lowell had thought Mars a rather arid planet, and the canals brought water from polar regions to the tropical latitudes where temperatures were conducive to life forms and agriculture. ...
