131. The Saturn Problem [Journals] [SIS Review]
... particular the prominence given to the outer planets Saturn and Jupiter, needs investigation. A simple mechanism is offered to account for many of the characteristics attributed to Saturn-deities, and a catastrophist speculation offered to explain how the idea of a divine succession' of planetary deities may have started. The planet Saturn appears to us as a tiny speck of light in the night sky, one most of us would have great difficulty identifying. Yet this inconspicuous object appears to have once been revered - by ancient civilisations in countries as widely separated as Greece and China - as the original ruler of the universe' and even as a sun-like object of dazzling splendour. Saturn's importance to the ancients forms ...
132. Apocalyptic Imagery In Modern Political Spectacle [Journals] [SIS Review]
... impressed', saying that the speech had been more beautiful, if not more impressive than ever' . The crowd has filled the air with applause and Sieg Heils, Rudolph Hess has maniacally shouted ' One Fhrer, One Volk, One Deutschland', there is frenzy and then the final parts of the ceremony, the light and sound, begin. It is here that the catastrophic similarities become apparent. First there is a huge display of fireworks. This is obviously an easy way to imitate cosmic disorder in the sky - very loud noises roaring overhead, blinding bursts of exploding light, shooting jets, showers of stars, tempestuous combustion - and that is ...
133. The Demands of the Saturnian Configuration Theory [Journals] [Aeon]
... through astrophysical considerations. I will only say in passing that, other than its mythological content, the mytho-historical record also incorporates the world-wide astronomical beliefs of our ancient forefathers, and that these beliefs coincide with their mytho-religious convictions. Ancient astronomical beliefs can therefore be considered together with mythology as a unified whole regardless of the fact that what comes to light in an in-depth research of such subjects ends up describing a Solar System that was entirely alien to the one we now inhabit. The reconstruction of this model, together with its attendant event-filled scenario- first by David Talbott and myself, later by Ev Cochrane, and now even by Wallace Thornhill- is the fruit of decades of research ...
134. Electric Discharge as the Source of Solar Radiant Energy (Concluded) [Journals] [Kronos]
... stream converging upon the Sun is the source of the energy thrown off by solar radiation. With a cathode drop of 10 to the power 10 volts, each electron in the stream will arrive at the Sun with kinetic energy in the amount of 10 to the power 10 electron-volts. If these electrons were not moving close to the speed of light we would expect about 2.4 x 1035 electrons (originating in interstellar space not including those liberated by the ionization of solar atmospheric gases) to reach the Sun each second. That the electrons impinge upon the Sun with velocities which are relativistic reduces the number of electrons which must arrive to supply the energy to power the Sun. ...

From Calendars to Chronology The AAAS Symposium on Velikovsky Charles Ginenthal "Another perennial attitude is summed up in the words UsThem. Here the world is divided in two: the children of light [the scientific establishment] and the children of darkness [Velikovsky and his advocates], the sheep and the goats, the elect and the damned. "Every social program can be analyzed without much study: all one has to look for are the sheep and the goats. "There is room for anger and contempt and boundless ...
137. On testing The Polar configuration [Journals] [Aeon]
... highly specific model. (3 ) To summarize the "model" as seen from the terrestrial view: Because the north celestial Pole is its pivot or center, it is the polar configuration. What the earthbound witness saw was a towering apparition reaching upward from the northern horizon and filling the circumpolar sky with a nightly display, an interplanetary light show against which our night sky today would literally disappear. We have already noted the key components: central, stationary orb of Saturn at the celestial Pole; four primary streams of ejecta radiating in four directions; enclosing band; illuminated crescent displayed on the band (and, as the earth rotated, visually revolving around Saturn); ...

... beneath. "When Isaiah received the divine mission to prophesy the destruction of the Babylonian empire, the death of Sennacherib and that of Nebuchadnezzar, who rose after the overthrow of Sennacherib,3 he commences in the following manner to describe their fall . . . : For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof, shall not give their light' (13:10); again, Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger' (13:13). I do not think that any person is so foolish and blind, ...

... dread and hysteria. Bernardino de Sahagún, a Franciscan friar writing in the 16th century, chronicled the Aztecs' perception of Venus "And when it [Venus] newly emerged, much fear came over them; all were frightened. Everywhere the outlets and openings of [houses] were closed up. It was said that perchance [the light] might bring a cause of sickness, something evil when it came to emerge." In the attempt to propitiate Venus, the Aztecs offered it human sacrifices, a practice associated with the planet in the Old World as well. What is there about the planet Venus that could have inspired such grim rites? Venus' present appearance ...
