91. The Atmosphere Of Mars, Part 2 Mars Ch.9 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... atmosphere of Mars are somewhat inconclusive; it is generally supposed that oxygen on Mars, if there is any, is less than 0.1 per cent of the oxygen content in the atmosphere of the earth per unit of surface area. 1 The difficulty of a spectral analysis of the atmosphere of the planets lies in the fact that their light is the reflected light of the sun, and consequently it has in it the spectral picture of the atmosphere of the sun (absorption lines of spectrum), and also in the fact that the atmosphere of the earth, through which this reflected light travels, impresses its own characteristic spectral lines (of absorption) on the light reflected ...
92. Speed of light has changed [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2002:2 (Dec 2002) Home | Issue Contents Speed of light has changed www.pr.mq.edu.au/events/index.asp?ItemID=607 The speed of light has changed, claims Macquarie physicist. Australian theoretical physicist, Professor Paul Davies, has proposed that one of the so-called "constants" of the universe - the speed of light - has in fact slowed over time, a revelation that will cause a rethink of many of our accepted laws of physics as well as our "understanding" of the beginning of the universe. Davies' paper, Black holes constrain varying constants, was published in ...
93. Celestial Records of the Orient by Isaac Vail [Books]
... scriptures of the Japanese. I will note it here for the reason that the foregoing volumes in this series have clearly shown the former existence of a vapor heaven, or watery vault, in close proximity to the earth, and this striking memorial established the fact beyond any reasonable doubt. Besides, it so plainly becomes reliable history under this light that I hasten to open the page sealed so long, though the illumination comes from a pagan lands W.E . Griffith translates the narrative from the ancient records and I quote from President Warren's valuable book "Paradise Found". After giving the genesis of the Japanese heaven and earth by the two solar spirits, Izanagi and Izanami ...
94. The Misread Record by Isaac Vail [Books]
... snows first, and then grow cold. This compels us to fall back to the fires of the igneous earth for a competent source of energy- to the earth's annular system and its canopy, revolving in regions of inveterate cold. This conceded, the geologist will find a clear field with many a stumbling block removed. With thus much light on the subject the Gibraltar of "existing causes" falls, and we must conclude that the glacial epochs and the snowfalls that suddenly terminated the career of the mammoth in Arctic lands, came from a source that does not now exist. Then the source of all those terrific deluges has passed away; and we approach the problem of ...
95. Jerusalem -- City of Venus [Journals] [Kronos]
... abbreviated form of the full name."(35) In Worlds in Collision, when referring to Venus as it must have appeared in cometary form, Velikovsky noted that "the Chaldeans described [Venus] as a bright torch of heaven, ' [and] "as a diamond that illuminates like the sun, ' and compared its light with the light of the rising sun." . . .( 35a) Comparable descriptions of Venus also appear in the records of the Hebrews, Mexicans, Chinese, Hindus, Assyrians, and Egyptians. In his discussion of the gods of Canaan, Albright equated Ba'alshamem with Athtar. The former was viewed as "neither the moon ...
96. Effects of Atmospheric Dust on the Arcus Visionis [Journals] [Kronos]
... the layers of illuminated dust. The calculation is described further on in the paper. However, before presenting the relation between dust layer height and the arcus visionis, I will summarize the result of an approximate calculation of the value, within an order of magnitude, of the volume scattering which would be necessary for the dust to scatter enough light so that Venus wouldn't be visible. In order to do this calculation one needs first an estimate of how bright the sky would have to be relative to the brightness of Venus for Venus to be virtually invisible. According to data in ref. 3, for twilight viewing (sky brightness about 0.1 cd/m2) a ...
97. The Sac and its Plenum [Books] [de Grazia books]
... has been postulated for the binary AM Herculis (Liller, p352). Wickramasinghe and Bessell describe gas flow patterns in X-ray-emitting binary systems. There, one may note a similarity in the shape of their pattern of maximum obscuration to the cone of gases proposed in this work. Viewed from the outside the ancient plenum would have been opaque to light. Not so with the gas of the Earth's atmosphere today, which is eight kilometers thick if the atmosphere is considered as a column of gas of constant density . This atmospheric layer is of trivial thickness compared to the radius of the Earth, yet its importance to the environment is unquestionable. Even this negligible atmospheric layer ...
98. The Crescent [Books]
... half of the band. It was this connection- occurring in both Egypt and Mesopotamia- that convinced me of the band's reality and led me to explore more deeply its various mythical formulations. The crescent in the sign suggests that Saturn's band received illumination from the solar orb in such a way as to present terrestrial observers with two semicircles of light and shadow. The concept of a half-illuminated band immediately places in a new perspective the universal image : is it possible that the famous sun-in-crescent represented not a contrived "conjunction" of the solar orb and new moon (the conventional explanation), but rather the primeval sun Saturn resting over the illuminated portion of his polar enclosure? Certainly ...
99. The Nature of Venus' Heat [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... , allow the assumption that the Sun, in its early history or thereafter, was just sufficiently hot so as to generate a greenhouse effect on Venus. What must follow? Morrison and Owen explain: At this point, the atmosphere is so hot that water vapor can easily rise to great heights, where it becomes exposed to solar ultraviolet light. This is a crucial step. On Earth, water is protected by the natural cold trap in the atmosphere. The air at the top of the troposphere is so cold that water cannot diffuse upward to levels where it could be attacked by ultraviolet light. A runaway greenhouse can raise the temperature throughout the lower atmosphere, giving water ...

(b ) there is a progressive decline in light-speed (c ) distant quasars and gamma ray bursts have an intense stream of redshifted photons coming from them. (d ) observed redshift will appear to be quantised in spherical shells (e ) Missing mass' in ...
