131. When The Comet Fell Ch.11 (The Riddle of the Earth) [Books]
... causing the Drift mutilated the British Isles and yet benefited them by its gifts. Its effects were very intermittent, but it is plain enough that all those regions lying nearest to Greenland and Iceland suffered the worst ravages. The Shetlands were once a very considerable island, but it is evident that they, like the Orkneys, were bombarded by meteors, torn by resultant earthquakes, and large portions permanently were submerged. The Outer Hebrides, as the nearest locality to the actual target or centre of impact, Iceland, the Faroe Isles and Shetland Isles alone excepted, were, like these, literally torn to shreds. The case of Benbecula, lying between North and South Uist, ...
132. The Burning of Troy [Books] [de Grazia books]
... ejected in a molten state, and solidifying after falling with a smacking sound back to the ground?- "upon impact, they are squashed out flat, and are welded together where they fall" . Volcanoes are not known to eject such scoriae to any considerable distance. Still another possibility needs to be added: a meteoric fall or shower, Homer's "divine-kindled fire of stones." If a large meteor had passed nearby without crashing, its immense heat would have consumed and raised into the sky the ashes of countless trees and the dust of exploded and cyclonized fields. But the people appear to have had warning, however brief. A veritable deluge of ...
133. The Nature and Scale of an Exodus Catastrophe Reassessed [Journals] [SIS Review]
... James and Sieff 1976: 13) - even though this involved separating the events of Joshua 10 from the time of Joshua. The afterglow to which Phythian-Adams appeals as an explanation of the lengthened day has been observed in the cases of much lesser meteorites than that which caused the Tunguska fireball of 1908. On March 24th 1933, a bright meteor crossed the southern USA from east to west at 5.00 a.m . M.S .T . It was ". .. surrounded by an enormous and highly luminous spheroid of gas with a diameter of about 10 kilometres (6 miles). It was about 40 kilometres (25 miles) high and thus subtended ...
134. The 'Cosmic Winter', Gildas... and St Patrick [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... has been invaluable to historians. His language is Old Testament in tone and denunciation and probably unpalatable nowadays. Atkinson is quite right to be sceptical of the contents - but Gildas cannot be entirely dismissed as irrelevant. It was predictable, I suppose, that Clube and Napier would try to use the Tunguska explosion in their cosmic cycle of periodic meteoric material entering the atmosphere. However they were then forced to scratch around for evidence of something similar earlier in the cycle. As a result of this, they made the claim that a similar Tunguska-like impact occurred in mid-5th Century AD, blaming it for depopulating large tracts of eastern and central (what is now) England and bringing sub-Roman ...
135. Gases, Poisons and Food [Books] [de Grazia books]
... perfection in plutonium containment could mean a 25% annual increase in total death rate from this source alone," amounting to over 25 million extra cases of lung cancer over 50 years . One must evaluate prehistoric indications of abnormal radiation and high-energy explosions in this light. Vera Rich, reviewing knowledge of the Tunguska (Siberia) meteor of 1908, brings forward evidence of scabrous infection of the local reindeer in that year, a great acceleration of tree ring growth beginning then, and an increase in the radioactivity of surrounding trees . Another report has it that certain plants mutated as well. The event was exoterrestrial in origin and probably is of the category ...

... ordinary-looking compositions, bemoaning the destruction of cities by the invading armies of Elam and the Su-people. However, here and there one catches glimpses of the extraordinary: the invasions took place on the background of raging winds, a scorching fire, and with rivers "dried up". There is one text that appears to tell of a fallen meteor that had turned the noon into dusk and set the Earth atremble. Given the wilful nature of the goddess in Sumerian myth, might one not wonder if she was behind the destructions also? Evidence for Asteroid Impact?1. source: NATURE 305, p.386 A deep drilling project off the east coast of the United States ...
138. Noah's Flood: Mars Flyby [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... been presented in several previous articles. The most recent was on the origin and odyssey of Halley's Comet. Another was on the origin of the Earth's geomagnetic field. And a third described the flood of Mars. A fourth, "The Scars of Mars," described the origin of most of its craters and the ancient ring system of meteors. The following parameters apply to our model. (1 ) Mars has a mass 10 1/2 percent that of the Earth, and a diameter of 4200 miles. (2 ) The closest distance between the two planets, called the perigee, is modeled at 14,700 miles. This distance measurement is "core to ...

... planet's surface. Jupiter impact details Scientific American Aug. 95, pp. 74-75 Analysis of the impacts of cometary pieces on Jupiter in 1994 reveal that just before each impact a storm of fine particles entered Jupiter's atmosphere, producing a dull infrared glow which could be seen from Earth. This was followed by the main impact which generated a brilliant meteor, succeeded by a rising fireball of hot gases jetting out to 3,000 km above the planet's cloud tops. The main bright event was caused by flashes of infrared energy as the collapsing plume became compressed. Dark clouds formed later. ELECTROMAGNETISM Electricity in space In Lunar and Planetary Inst.

140. The Electro-gravitic Theory of Celestial Motion [Journals] [Aeon]
... their orbits, should be found to have very little magnetism. The Trojan asteroids that follow and precede Jupiter were first predicted before their discovery on the basis of gravitational equations and therefore should be found to have practically no magnetism. However, the Apollo asteroids that have very elliptical orbits should be found to possess a great deal of magnetism. Meteor orbits can also be explained. Most meteors appear to be composed of iron and nickel and have very elliptical orbits. It follows that such meteors should possess significant magnetism. When a meteor enters the Earth's atmosphere the friction between it and the atmosphere causes it to heat to an incandescent glow. The temperature of the meteor rises above the ...
