91. Verbal Vignette [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2001:2 (Sep 2001) Home | Issue Contents Verbal Vignette MEL ACHESON: Mel reminded us that gravity is a theory. Stars, for instance, repudiate gravity, solar prominences disobey [see Velikovsky's comments in Cosmos without Gravitation, at www.varchive.org/ce/cosmos.htm]. The Gravitation Constant is like a dancing plasma. Herodotus says that "Thunderbolts steer the universe". Like Newton, Herodotus would have seen apples fall from trees, but did not consider the observation significant to his view. Likewise, Newton would have seen lightning, but not considered the observation significant to his view of gravity. ...

... Cochrane Don Scott, Wal Thornhill ELECTRIC UNIVERSE PREDICTS GALILEO AT RISK. . by Wal Thornhill- MOVING BEYOND FALLING By Mel Acheson It's exciting to discover a new idea that explains more facts with more unity than previous ideas. It's exhilarating to discover two such new ideas that interact to reveal opportunities previously unimaginable. That's what happened with heliocentrism and gravity. Copernicus' idea that the planets moved around the sun instead of around the earth was a breakthrough. It explained the growing number of observations of planetary motions that Ptolemy's geocentric idea was failing to account for. The proliferation of ad hoc adjustments to Ptolemy's system of epicycles had become self- contradictory, and the heliocentric viewpoint fit the ...
93. Forum [Journals] [Aeon]
... effects of gaseous friction are needed to promote this objection. And a time frame for the damping expected should be established. Mr. Thornhill also objects to Patten and Windsor's statement that our Moon has no rotation. The Moon's rotation is such that one face is frozen toward Earth. The Moon has no independent rotation. The Moon's center of gravity is offset from the center of its external sphere- or a "blob" on the Moon's near face, "unseen" from Earth, allows Earth's gravity to hold this position. Why look to the Sun as a source for comparison of the slow rotations implied? Mercury and Venus both have slow rotations and would have done just ...
... more than a debris of sorts, intangible and gaseous, and practically harmless. They assert, or assume, that comets possess set and definite orbits. An orbit signifies a regular circuit round the sun, yet comets all take an elongated ellipse of a highly eccentric order. They must obey, nevertheless, one law, namely that of gravity, like all heavenly bodies, and for this reason, added to the vast magnetic attraction of the sun, they are pulled in and ultimately consumed. But astronomers calculate normal orbits from the direction of their apparent motion. Halley produced this theory in relation to the comet called after him and to which he gave an orbit of 76 ...
... or a mass of water to have stood upon the middle of the Earth like one great drop, or a trembling jelly, and all the places about it dry and untouched. All liquid bodies are diffusive; for their parts being in motion have no the or connexion one with another, but glide and fall of any way, as gravity and the air presseth them; so the surface of water doth always conform into a spherical convexity with the rest of the Globe of the Earth, and every part of :it falls as near to the center as it can; wherefore when these waters began to rise at first, long before they could swell to the height of ...

... electrically mediated nuclear reactions in the photosphere. That provides a direct connection between neutrinos, the solar wind and sunspots. As the model name suggests, it takes into account the fundamental electrical nature of all matter. Unbelievably, this is ignored in the standard solar model, which is based on the equilibrium between compression of a gaseous sphere by gravity and the expansive force of heat in the centre. Eddington, who is responsible for the standard model, wrote: "In seeking a source of energy other than [gravitational] contraction the first question is whether the energy to be radiated in future is now hidden in the star or whether it is being picked up continuously from outside ...
97. Conclusion (Carl Sagan & Immanuel Velikovsky) [Books]
... , whereas this was discovered almost 20 years later. Petr Beckmann in Einstein Plus Two, (Boulder, CO 1987) using classical physics that apply to atoms was also able to use these same physical formulas to derive the distances of all the planets from the Sun. Furthermore, his last chapter, pp. 184-186 discusses the relationship between gravity and electromagnetism, but he comes to exactly the opposite conclusion Sagan has presented. Beckmann states, "The fact that this hypothesis leads to agreement with observation for both electrons and planets, that is, regardless of whether the field propagating from its source is electric or gravitational, suggests that electric and gravitational forces might not be siblings, ...

99. Noah's Vessel: 24,000 Deadweight Tons [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... empty vessel displacement. "SUPERSTRUCTURE" consists of houses, masts, etc. built above the main deck of a vessel. "SCANTLINGS" refer to the skeletal structure of any part of a vessel. "CENTER OF BUOYANCY" is the exact center of the "hole in the water" made by a vessel. "CENTER OF GRAVITY" is the exact center of all of the "weight" of a vessel and its cargo. (These two centers are always in vertical alignment when a vessel is at rest in the water.) "STERN" is the back; "BOW" is the front; "PORT" is the side on your left when ...
100. Oberg's Unscientific Method [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... suddenly punched into mid-air by some random tidal force: that velocity is for gas and dust expelled by thermal expansion from underground chambers, which is a completely different physical process than the fantasy Ginenthal presents. "Tidal forces on Io eject materials at 20 times the speed that volcanoes do on Earth," he argues, ignorantly omitting that Io's gravity is about ten times less than Earth's and that Earth volcanoes do indeed eject material at great speeds, and most horribly of all, attributing the Io volcanic ejection speed to "tidal forces" when it is, in fact, due to pure heating expansion effects, caused by tidal forces.(32) Contrary to Oberg's angry statement ...
