41. Sagan's second problem: Repeated collisions among the Earth, Venus and Mars (Carl Sagan & Immanuel Velikovsky) [Books]
... thirty million years." '1 Thus, it seems when the figures do not give the results that Sagan wishes, he changes the figures and gets the numbers he needs. It is suggested that he raise the 30 million years to 30 billion, or 30 trillion, or 30 quadrillion if that will make him feel more secure. Gravity and collisions Thus, Sagan states, "let us take the number 30 million years to give the maximum quantitative bias in favor of Vehkovsky."2 But if Sagan really wanted "to give the maximum quantitative bias" to favor Velikovsky, he would have used his earlier small number of 30 thousand years or at least "10 ...
42. Evidence for the Extreme Youth of Venus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... at the parturition of one of the gas giant planets to form the new planet Venus. The implications of such a late and spectacular event in the Solar System are profound. It will be difficult to contemplate by those who have built the current cosmogonic consensus. That consensus is built upon ad hoc additions to centuries-old ideas. It relies on gravity as the aggregating force acting over millions of years upon widely dispersed material to form the Solar System. Clearly, in the current steady state of the Solar System, gravitational theory seems to predict planet orbits accurately. Not only does the clockwork certainty make life easier for the mathematicians but it also makes the world seem safe. However, ...
43. Discussion on Wal Thornhill & Ev Cochrane's papers [Journals] [SIS Review]
... configuration of planets. Wal Thornhill accepted Charles's view that these kinds of things would occur in the magnetotail of the earth and other planets when they were under particular electrical stress. It is a way of transferring charge from one object on an inner orbit to another on an outer orbit, preferentially along the plasma tail. That affects the effective gravity of each body and hence their orbits. The result seems to be the spacing apart of planets on the least interaction principle, minimising charge transfer - resulting in Bode's Law. It is this mechanism that gives the false impression that the solar system has been stable for aeons. In fact, conventional gravity acting alone will not produce a ...
44. Escape from Einstein by Ronald R. Hatch [Journals] [SIS Review]
... and again, he shows that famous experiments do not prove what they were claimed to prove and he lines up an impressive list of anomalous results which, far from vindicating Einstein, actually appear to prove him wrong. However Hatch claims that they are all consistent with his ether gauge theory. In Einstein's General Theory, free fall in a gravity field is claimed to be equivalent to unaccelerated motion in flat space:'. . . since unaccelerated clocks in Minkowski space run at a constant rate, this says that all clocks which are in free fall should run at constant rates. But they don't! The Global Position System (GPS) satellites need clock relativity' corrections for ...
45. Reply to Earl Milton [Journals] [Aeon]
... material has been duly incorporated in that paper (the foregoing article) with appropriate citation. In his published criticism, however, Milton's major objection boils down to the contention that I have not faced up to Coulomb's law, which shows that electromagnetic repulsion is at best a feeble force on the planets in the Solar System, when compared to gravity. The formula is devastating to the electromagnetic interactions that I propose. Nevertheless, there is evidence that solar electromagnetic energy affects the Earth and bodies on it in spite of Coulomb's law. James Warwick's calculations appeared to refute Velikovsky's conclusion regarding magnetic stars based on these same considerations that Milton now raises. As shown in AEON 1: 2 ...
46. Conference: Our Violent Solar System [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... to another "conversion" (and further loss of popularity) for him? Dunno. We'll have to wait and see. Ted Holden's familiar "impossible dinosaurs" is as still a crucial point in the discussion of Earth's ancient history. He's added a few details that I wasn't aware of. First, an estimate of the scale of gravity attenuation necessary for the dinosaurs to have survived: gravity must have been weaker by 2.8 times today's gravity. Second, he mentioned other difficulties, like lifting their long necks and holding up their tails. He added evidence that the attenuation of gravity must have continued to some degree into the times of the monument-building humans. One ...

... dynamic material produced by his own orery program and showed himself to be a one-man library of references to current applicable research, keeping the other speakers busy taking notes during the day-after meeting. And Ted Holden, our curmudgeon cum laude, presented an update of his compelling material on the impossibility of sauropod (big dinosaurs) scaling in earth's present gravity. Paleontologist Robert Dunlap showed clips from 4 of his video productions about extinctions and meteor craters and after some some prompting & cajoling, managed to get a handle on Ted Holden's compelling sauropod scaling argument. C. J. Ransom provided much needed comic relief with his witticisms and ironies regarding basic resistance to Velikovskian catastrophism. Conference organizer, ...

49. On Gravitating Electrified Bodies [Books] [de Grazia books]
... orbits of today's Solar System this electrical repulsion among the planets is deemed by us to manifest itself in the Titius-Bode law of commensurable planet periods (e .g . five Jupiter orbits in approximately  the same time as two Saturn orbits). Until now the "law" has been an unexplainable observation. In an electric "gravity" system a tangential inertia  is coupled to a radial electrical force whose nature depends upon the electrical state of the bodies orbiting. The electric force can vary between strongly repulsive in close encounter to strongly attractive when electrical flow joins the two bodies (see Table 5 and Figure 38). When the bodies are widely separated ...
50. News from the Internet [Journals] [SIS Review]
... far-flung cultures recorded the events in the great myths, symbols, and ritual practices of antiquity. A costly misunderstanding of planetary history must now be corrected. The misunderstanding arose from fundamental errors within the field of cosmology, the "queen" of the theoretical sciences. Mainstream cosmologists, whether trained as physicists, mathematicians, or astronomers, consider gravity to be the controlling force in the heavens. From this assumption arose the doctrine of eons-long solar system stability- the belief that under the rule of gravity the nine planets have moved on their present courses since the birth of the solar system. Seen from this vantage point, the ancient fear of the planets can only appear ludicrous. ...
