61. Earthquake Lights (U.S. Geological Survey News Release) [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... lights are the personal observations of untrained observers. Nevertheless, observations have been made for many years, and the existence of earthquake lights is well established." In a recent (May-June 1977) issue of the USGS Earthquake Information Bulletin, Derr noted that the first known investigations of earthquake lights were c9rried out in the early 1930's by two Japanese seismologists, Torahiko Terada and Kinkiti Musya; the latter collected some 1,500 reports of lights from the Idu Peninsula earthquake which occurred at 4:30 a.m ., November 26, 1930. In most of the accounts of the lights from the Idu Peninsula quake, the sky was lit up as if by sheet lightning ...
62. The Demise of the Mammoth: Conflicting Theories [Journals] [Aeon]
... I was expecting a lot and got a little." Buigues now plans to lead an expedition to the New Siberian Islands which, according to the Russian mammalogist Alexei Tikhonov, may be the best place in the world to find frozen mammoth soft tissue such as the chunks which had already been retrieved in the mid-1990s by a joint Russian and Japanese expedition. It is not that Buigues and his colleague Ross MacPhee are aiming to clone a mammoth from any DNA they hope to recover. But MacPhee, curator of mammals at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, is hoping to be able to test his theory concerning the demise of the mammoth. The extinction of this ...

... training camp. Augustus in Troy National Geographic April 98, geographica A marble head identified as that of Augustus, who became the first Roman emperor, in 27BC, has been found at the site traditionally thought of as that of ancient Troy. There appears to have been a renewal of culture in the area that lasted about 500 years. Japanese mathematics enters a dark age Scientific American May 98, p. 65 Although some mathematics had developed in Japan earlier, the first real records are when Buddhism, and with it Chinese mathematics, came to Japan in the mid 6th century AD. However, it did not progress further because the country entered a Dark Age', roughly ...
64. Can One Burn At Two Stakes?. File III (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... after Ages in Chaos had been published in the United States, Kohlhammer Verlag sent me a cable asking for a contract for this book, either directly or through Europa Verlag, our previous intermediary. Generally speaking, I was no longer eager to see my books translated. In cases in which I could not check the translation- as with the Japanese translation (by the Hosei University Press, Tokyo) and the Afrikaans translation (by Dr. A. H. Jonker, member of the South African Parliament), I could not know if and how far the translator had digressed from the original. And in languages in which I could check the translation, it required much of ...
65. A Catastrophic Reading of Religious Systems [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of collective amnesia, blockage of memory and trivialisation of myths. c) From Velikovsky and Wolfe - theory of denial, desire to not know', to evolve beliefs constructed to permit us to deceive ourselves, avoid remembering and deny or co-opt traumas. I will ask if religion is unconscious denial while figuratively remembering. 12. Example of Japanese culture post-World War II, history denies atomic events but horror movies remember them in disguise. Religion may do both of these jobs regarding planetary catastrophe. 13. Plan - suppose Triple Terror exists, look for effects in religion. These have to be major, central and controlling. Establish grid of possible phenomena (the T-grid) by ...
66. Monitor. C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... applicable principle to explain the weather, not only on Earth but also other planets, is being criticised by scientists whose careers are built on large, sophisticated computer models. In extreme cases intolerant prejudice can almost lead to international incidents. The late British palaeontologist Beverley Halstead was once so incensed by what he considered the un-Darwinian views of the top Japanese primatologist that he decried the whole of Japanese science and that bastion of orthodoxy, the journal Nature, printed his article. Constant Invention New Scientist 18.8 .01, p. 11, 28.7 .01, p. 17 Astrophysicists are in trouble again. A fundamental constant appears to have changed over time and the ...
67. On the Crab Supernova of 1054 [Journals] [Kronos]
... year 446 H. (12 April 1054 - 1 April 1055 A.D .) ." For clarification, due to differing constellation definition and precession of the equinoxes, what appears in Taurus today appeared closer to Gemini in 1054. Thus, we have unambiguous, independent sightings of an extraordinary celestial event from three cultures - Chinese, Japanese and Arabic. It is clear from the contexts that the records of these sightings are indigenous to the exclusion of a diffusionary explanation. With regard to certain pictographs and petroglyphs in the American Southwest, purported to record the Crab Supernova, this is another matter. It is possible that Sagan may have overstated the validity of these drawings which ...
68. Pot Pourri [Journals] [SIS Review]
... undisputed superpower in history with a global reach, yet by the time the fleets returned their expansionist programme had already been reversed, China had been defeated in a guerrilla war in Vietnam, and the Ming Empire was withdrawing from the world, so that, after little more than a century, their coasts would be defenceless in the face of Japanese' pirates . The various Chinese colonies around the world were abandoned to their fate (over 150 years before England's Lost Colony' in Roanoke). It would be 570 years before any country achieved the global dominance China had thrown away. The bolt of lightning that the God of Heaven' sent down on the Forbidden ...
