91. The Causal Source for the Geological Transients at 2300BC [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 880 2,610,127 Asia 115,021 3,951,000 Alps 3,600 37,000 South America 26,500 870,000 Australasia 1,015 30,000 The critical question is whether there actually was glacial growth around 2300BC and, furthermore, if the growth was sufficiently great to possibly produce the reported geophysical effects. In a triggering of the Arctic region into an ice-covered state (as postulated in my preceding article), the surface temperature drop was essentially permanent, so continued glacial growth could be expected to occur. Greater glacial coverage would also increase Polar albedo, reducing Solar energy absorption in the region and encouraging the ice-triggering process. The ...
92. Mona Lisa And The Antarctic. File III (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... asked me to walk with him in the dark to our homes and continue the discussion. Parting, he gave me his paper on submarine formations in the Pacific (guyots) and the isostatic submersion of the oceanic floor, written in 1946. I asked if he would agree to submit several suggestions for inclusion into the program of the International Geophysical Year, since coming directly from me, they would be disregarded. He agreed. Upon reading Hess's paper I wrote a constructive, in parts unsparing, criticism and sent it to him "for whatever it is worth" together with a list of measurements and tests for inclusion into the program of the IGY, which was to start ...
93. The Atlantis Myth [Books]
... Culture The Date of the Loss of Atlantis The Meaning of the Name The Apocalyptic Atlantis The World-wide Losses of Land Conclusion Notes Bibliography Introduction Many books have been written about Atlantis. There exist a number of able compilations which contain a wealth of interesting and valuable material, but it is to be regretted that they are, almost without exception, geophysically unsoundly based, or without any basis whatever. They are therefore apt to confuse those who seek for new knowledge on that old problem. In this book I shall attempt a new approach to Atlantology. I shall not seek to prove the former existence of Atlantis: about that there need be no further speculation. If Atlantis is still ...
94. The Lately Tortured Earth [Books] [de Grazia books]
... past dozen or so thousands of years, approximately the Holocene period. I aim to be theoretical. I do not wish to pile up horrific details, nor do I. By Earth' of course is meant our familiar globe, cracked and slightly irregular, with its high speed motions and far stretching atmosphere. We are interested in the geophysical column that extends radially from a presumably iron and nickel center, through an enormous mantle of molten rock and water, to where the biosphere dwells, then outwards by means of gases and electric charges to beyond the Moon. We seek to know what has happened lately to this Earth system. The amateur has his place in scientific revolutions ...
95. Problems of Continental Drift [Journals] [SIS Review]
... model which attempts to account for anomalies in the present scheme by explaining the separation and drift of the continents in terms of an expansion of the earth, perhaps involving a change in gravity. (See Peter Smith: "Journey to the Edges of the Earth", The Guardian, 12th February 1981.) And while most geologists and geophysicists in the western world are now happy to accept continental drift as a working hypothesis, the theory has as yet made little headway in the USSR, where it encountered strong opposition from the prestigious authority V. V. Beloussov. (See R. M. Wood: "Geology versus Dogma?: The Russian Rift", New ...
96. The Flood [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 2 No 4 (1994) Home | Issue Contents The Flood Charles Ginenthal One of the problems in Velikovskian research has been the inability to distinguish between catastrophes that occurred close in time to one another. It is also difficult to distinguish the different time frames of the worldwide floods. Immanuel Velikovsky documented mythological and geophysical evidence of a worldwide flood occurring 3,500 years ago(1 ) He also spoke of earlier catastrophes that produced immense global floods; such floods would have left distinctive evidence. The evidence I present below is a melange of data regarding more than one global flood. Apparently, the earlier global floods occurred when major icecaps covered the ...
97. Cataclysms of the Earth [Books]
... their wave lengths on spectrograph charts, as previously explained. All of the earth's materials are transient, occluded, earth-bound forms of the stellar radiations which fill all space. Energy radiations, atoms and ions, are the same thing in different manifestations. The growth of the earth and its stratified construction are accounted for by this new cosmic, geophysical theory of continuous creation, caused by electro-dynamic interactions of radiant energy from celestial space and earth-bound energy forms. This explanation identifies the earth's materials with the rest of the universe, all being the same essence in different natural manifestations. It explains how each of the successive strata of the earth represents, generally, the accumulated growths of vegetable ...
98. A Record of Success [Journals] [Pensee]
... (Mariner Mission to Venus, 1963), but was contested by Plummer, Science (March 14, 1969). Venus was in near collision with Earth. (W in C, part one, "Venus," Passim) On April 23, 1966, P. Goldreich and S.J . Peale reported to the American Geophysical Union their startling discovery of Venus' resonant axial rotation: every time Venus passes between the sun and Earth it turns the same face to our planet. T. J. Gordon, formerly chief engineer for the upper stage of the Saturn rocket, wrote: "This type of resonant motion resists outside disturbances; once locked, the ...
99. Spence (The Atlantis Myth) [Books]
... well-written and closely reasoned books, The Problem of Atlantis, The History of AItlantis, and Atlantis in America. They are, and will always remain, indispensable to anyone interested in Atlantis, and, together with Donnelly's work, are books to buy and to keep. Lewis Spence's few shortcomings are entirely caused by the lack of an adequate geophysical theory underlying his work. For only with such a basis is it possible too explain convincingly, indeed unassailably, that greatest enigma of Atlantis: its loss, and the loss of other culture centres elsewhere in the world. Without a theory of this kind recourse must be had to those daring and dangerous explanations, which our foremost Atlantologist ...
100. Donnelly (The Atlantis Myth) [Books]
... , and at the beginning of the Christian Era, Posidonius, Strabo, and Pliny took pains not to pronounce entirely for or against the possibility of Atlantis ever having existed. Their idea seems to have been that, as no weighty arguments against the former existence of Atlantis could be adduced, and as there were many undoubted evidences of violent geophysical changes everywhere, such a continent, or large island, might well have existed and foundered Plutarch was very sympathetic and only regretted that ' of all the beautiful works of Plato the tale of the lost Atlantis has remained unfinished'. Tertullian saw no reason why the Atlantis myth should not have had a basis in fact. After an ...
