121. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... could have been even more critical on this point. During the 4 or 5 millennia considered by Clube and Napier, the June/Daylight Taurids never radiated from Aries; how could Gildas' mention of battering rams' be an identification? 3) Atkinson... knows... [only] about... current innocuous meteor showers'. Clube &Napier argued that the Taurids are still particularly dangerous or spectacular or special showers - and have been catastrophic well into the present millennium. My points (a ) to (e ) (C &C Review XIII p. 57) demonstrate that this is not so - citing standard texts. As my sources ...

122. The Ocean [Journals] [Kronos]
... land. Prior to certain catastrophes, earlier than those described in Worlds in Collision, the highest mountain ridges of the Himalayas must have been under sea, as the fossil content of their rock formations testifies. Stupendous meteorite showers occurred in the past, and the red clay on the bottom of the sea must have iron and nickel content of meteoric origin. Speaking of the cataclysm that closed the period known as the Middle Bronze II (Middle Kingdom in Egypt), I wrote in Worlds in Collision (p . 48): "One of the first visible signs of this encounter was the reddening of the earth's surface by a fine dust of rusty pigment. In sea, ...

... secure astronomical framework. Biblical and geological catastrophism are, after all, inextricably linked" (pp. 153-54). Using many of the same sources and others, Clube and Napier reconstruct the recent history of the Solar System as host to a large comet which has undergone a hierarchy of fragmentations in the last 20,000 years, producing meteor streams, some of which intersect Earth's orbit. Some streams contained or were accompanied by large comets which were named. The dynamics were such that for a century or so every 700 to 800 years Earth was subjected to intense periodic meteor showers, even including on occasion a super-Tunguska-like event. Eventually these cornets disappeared, either by devolatilization/ ...

... will likely be the last person to admit that the earth's aqueous strata have largely fallen into place as we find them to-day, as the giant wreck of slowly declining annular matter ; but when it shall have become apparent, that an annular system does not necessarily fall as a sudden titanic world-collision, but as continuous world-showers of dust and other meteoric matter, and floods of watery vapor, and snow, through the " Ages," the great mass of the thinking world will readily admit the logical record which declares that not only the great mass of the mineral crust of the earth has to a vast extent been built up, sometimes very slowly, and again very rapidly, ...

125. Victory of The Sun [Books] [de Grazia books]
... About the same time, the American politician and writer, Ignatius Donnelly, guessed that such widely dispersed events as the great Chicago fire, the Pestigo Forest fire, and the immense volcanic explosion of Krakatoa may have been caused by an encounter with the tail of Biela's comet [13]. I hardly need speak of the occasional comets and meteors whose impact alone, should they strike Earth, can cause local devastation with worldwide effect. On August 10,1972, a meteor of perhaps 4000 tons and forty feet across, skipped through the atmosphere of the Mountain Sates of America and was by chance closely observed. Luigi Jacchia, an astrophysicist, who glimpsed by accident the passage ...

... , more specifically, of March 23rd of that year, (39) has been shown by Mewhinney to have been entirely misunderstood by the author of Worlds in Collision. (40) As Mewhinney noted after an extensive survey of the Chinese sources in question, all that really surfaces is "a very approximate coincidence in date" between a meteor shower seen in China and the "heavenly blast"- "the precise nature of which is not specified"- that was said to have destroyed Sennacherib's invading army. (41) So, also, John Bimson who could find "no good evidence to postulate a global disaster in that year, the Chinese evidence suggesting no more ...

127. Forum Part Two [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 2500-year cycle of cosmic catastrophes, predicting the next cataclysm in about 1000 years, around 3000 AD [44]. Nevertheless, Clube links the LB III destruction layers with meteoritic inputs producing widespread destructions in the Eastern Mediterranean during the late second millennium' [45]. This claim prompts us to ask the following principal question: How could meteoric showers, which according to Clube were a repeated physical process', possibly successively affect only one particular area of the globe, i.e . the Near East and the Mediterranean area? In other words, are the four/five main Bronze Age destruction layers of the Mediterranean region and the Near East really the result of local ...

... sandstone bed sandwiched in between the mudstone. The sandstone is packed with shells, mineral pellets, fish teeth, wood debris and large clumps of mudstone. The mudstone clumps appear to have been uprooted in ancient times by a powerful shearing force: the researchers think this has to be a record of a giant tsunami caused by a large fiery meteor plunging into the Gulf of Mexico 66 million years ago. This same giant asteroid may also have sparked off a global fire according to more evidence reported in Nature. High concentrations of soot have now been found in the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary layer in Denmark and New Zealand. In addition, the boundary is rich in organic carbon and nitrogen indicating ...

... output. In a work of 1953, Dachille, together with Alan Kelly, offered the circular Bermuda Deep as an astrobleme. By all odds the largest candidate for craterdom so far, this feature might be held responsible for Bermuda Island, as its typical central peak. The hundreds of Carolina Bays were conjectured as the splash-down sites of successive meteors in the same train or later on. The Appalachian mountains would become the westward-thrusted, outer rim displacement from the crater. Significantly, in 1982, claims were voiced that a Northeast to Southwest belt of the Appalachians was once an offshore island chain rammed into America in the course of continental drift and, after the growth of the Eastern ...

... Cataclysmic Imagery (Concluded)Richard J. Jaarsma with Edward L. Odenwald Though obviously much affected by massive storms, floods, droughts, and lengthy periods of extremely cold weather, the Elizabethans and Jacobeans apparently reserved the greatest share of whatever capacity for terror they had left for the phenomena of thunder and lightning, and such cosmic occurrences as meteors, comets, and eclipses of the Sun and Moon. Lightning strikes, for instance, are minutely reported: September the 5th [1599], at Alhallows, Bread-street, betwixt twelve and one at noon, was a dreadful thunderclap. It killed a water-spaniel at the church-wall side; felled one of the beadmen of the Salters' ...
