1. Gravity and Pterodactyls [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:4 (July 1999) Home | Issue Contents Gravity and Pterodactyls Mike Twose, from Toronto, Ontario, writes: The article on pterodactyls by Frederic Jueneman [6 ] appears to be based on the assumption that the gravitational force on the surface of Earth has not changed. There is no proof of this assumption, but there are several indications that it may not be true. While Jueneman's idea of a denser atmosphere might make it a bit easier for the gigantic flying reptiles of the past to get off the ground, it does not help explain the massive creatures that lived underneath it. The Baluchiterium which, according to the zoologist Ivan Sanderson ...
2. Dark Matter [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... Ginenthal Just as the medieval astronomers added epicycle after epicycle to Ptolemy's spheres in order to match his geocentric theories with observed planetary movement, so today cosmologists add dark matter to cosmic strings as inflation papering over the yawning crevices in their theory. (1 ) Nothing so disturbs or infuriates the astronomical community as the concept proposed by Velikovsky, that gravity may not be the only fundamental force governing celestial motion. When Velikovsky proposed this, he asserted a belief that the foundation stone of all astronomical and cosmological thought was in error and brought upon himself unending rage and furor. Velikovsky had questioned that which had always been assumed to be beyond question and settled for all time. Harlow Shapley ...
3. The Cause of Gravitation [Books]
... wobbling and precession, and they have calculated the frequency of revolution to a high degree of mathematical accuracy. But this computation alone does not scientifically account for the rotation of the earth. We must also identify the source of energy that causes the earth's rotation. This identification, only recently discovered, also provides an understanding of the nature of gravity and gives scientific validity to the theory that polar ice caps, when they grow oversize, cause successive roll -arounds of the globe. We find that the cause of the earth's rotation is the all pervading force of nature known as celestial radiant energy. The electrical energy rays from celestial space, shot out by countless billions of stars ( ...
4. Proof of A Celestial Counterforce to Gravity [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 1 No 3 (1993) Home | Issue Contents Proof of A Celestial Counterforce to Gravity Charles Ginenthal One of the most basic concepts of gravitational theory, as devised by Isaac Newton is that of angular momentum, and, more importantly, the law of conservation of angular momentum. As Carl Sagan stated, "There is one further point about the scientific method that must be made. Not all scientific statements have equal weight. Newtonian dynamics and the laws of conservation of energy and angular momentum have extremely firm footing." (1 ) The conservation laws required that "[ i ]n a closed [gravitational] system, such as the ...
5. Gravity and Pterodactyls: More Points to Consider [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:6 (Aug 2000) Home | Issue Contents Gravity and Pterodactyls: More Points to Consider Mike Twose Mike Twose, from Toronto, Ontario, writes: A more massive terrestrial atmosphere as an explanation for the gigantic flying creatures of the past as hypothesized by Frederic Jueneman [1 ] is somewhat difficult to imagine. A much vaster amount of oxygen and nitrogen would mean higher pressure on the surface of Earth. This raises problems with the solubility of gases under pressure. The other alternative would be an atmosphere containing a larger percentage of heavy inert gases, such as xenon, which seems even more unlikely. It would be impossible for an air-breathing creature ...
6. A Model of the Polar Configuration [Articles]
... as mentioned by David. (Well, let me see if I can work this. There we are.) We have the Sun and we have this array of planets, and this is the array of planets orbiting. And what we have is Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, Mars and Earth all rotating about a common center of gravity with Jupiter being on the opposite side and the center of gravity, of course, being between Jupiter and Saturn. So then Jupiter would be behind Saturn. And then the planets would be lined up. And Jupiter would not be visible because of the angle of visibility. Now this array would orbit the Sun as an array, ...
7. Is Gravity Necessary? (A Response to Charles Ginenthal's Electro-Gravitic Theory) [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon I:3 (1988) Home | Issue Contents Is Gravity Necessary? (A Response to Charles Ginenthal's Electro-Gravitic Theory)Earl Milton In the mid-Twentieth Century when Immanuel Velikovsky wrote the book, Worlds in Collision, the mechanical world view of Isaac Newton ruled astronomy. By proposing that the planets had changed orbits recently, thereby sometimes coming to close proximity with cataclysmic results, Velikovsky attracted scorn from many astronomers. Even when data from space probe after space probe indicated that the believed view of a quiet birth and evolution of the Solar System was no longer warranted, few scientists bothered to examine Velikovsky's work seriously. Worse, the conspiracy of silence which was imposed ...
8. Thoth Vol VI, No 4: June 30, 2002 [Journals] [Thoth]
... we assume that the charge of an electron and proton always remains the same it means that their effective inertial mass must be lower. If we take Sansbury's model of electrons and protons - being composed of smaller orbiting charges - then it means that the electrons and protons are subject to a lower ambient polarizing electrostatic force - in other words, gravity. That is borne out by the high initial velocity and subsequent slowing of quasars as their redshift falls. Herbig-Haro objects should show the same effects because in both cases I think that the plasma focus (PF) effect, that spits out jets and quasars. I believe that the PF traps the much lighter electrons for a time after ...

10. Sagan's tenth problem: The circularization of the orbit of Venus (Carl Sagan & Immanuel Velikovsky) [Books]
... experiments have been performed on their validity..." However, it only takes one experiment to put this concept in doubt. Velikovsky posed the following respecting the motion of charged and uncharged pendulums in an article titled "The Pendulum Experiment" in which he cited Albert Einstein's Relativity, 11th edition, p. 59, regarding fundamentals of gravity. Einstein stated, "In contrast to electric and magnetic fields, the gravitational field exhibits a most remarkable property, which is of fundamental importance... Bodies which are moving under the sole influence of a gravitational field receive an acceleration, which does not in the least depend either on the material or the physical state of the ...
