... dust each year, it is quite clear that Venus must also sweep up a similar or comparable amount of dust, as well. Do Frazier and his scientific experts now wish us to believe that there was never interplanetary dust in space near Venus' orbit for the past 4.5 billion years? Do they really expect anyone to believe meteors and comets did not shower the inner solar system with dust, or that meteors never fell into Venus' atmosphere for eons creating detritus? Furthermore, scientists contend that there are about 920 or so impact craters on Venus which represent half a billion years of impacts. That suggests that, over 4 billion years, about 8,000 ...

... one phenomenon or another, and omit some other fundamental circumstance. It is rarely mentioned that Earth, forming from outside-in, suffered an early major calamity roughly coinciding with the first formation of crustal rocks 4 billion years ago. Proto-Earth would have grown by sweeping up successively gas, dust, sand, pebbles, stony boulders, and larger stone meteors from surrounding space until its mass was sufficient to attract planetismal-sized chunks of meteoric nickel/iron. Because of their high density, these last would sink rapidly towards the centre, displacing gases and smaller, less dense materials of the early stages of formation. This has been called the Iron Catastrophe' or the Big Belch'; the ...

... currently known asteroidal flux), it has become evident that there are many other (and, in fact, many unknown) cosmic sources which are capable of triggering ecological disasters - often without causing impact craters on the ground (i .e . dead' or disintegrating comets, cometary dust veils, atmospheric impacts and oceanic impacts by large meteor showers, etc.). Traditionally, both the search for past cosmic catastrophes and the prediction of future impacts has been limited to crater producing events - no crater, no catastrophe'. If we were to accept this restriction, Tunguska-like events or even super-Tunguskas would be automatically taken out of the equation. Due to their catastrophic detonation ...

... view is based on quoting out of context and reading between the lines'. Let us see, then, what V has managed to make of some of these socio-political upheavals by taking their descriptions out of context and reinterpreting them. The most outrageous example is when the free-wandering cattle in the ANET extract just quoted are made to flee by meteoric hail! On WIC p.64, V writes: "Similarly, the Egyptian eyewitness: Cattle are left to stray, and there is none to gather them together. Each man fetches for himself those that are branded with his name. ' Falling stones and fire made the frightened cattle flee. Ipuwer also wrote: Trees are ...

... mice had gnawed at the bowstrings of the Assyrians during the night, causing them to withdraw and return home. Herodotus may have misinterpreted his source. He does not seem to have understood the symbolic link at Letopolis between thunderbolts and mice. He may even have got mixed up with mention of a bow', as a comet or bright meteor might actually have taken the shape of a bow arched across the sky. Bows are used to fire arrows - missiles such as thunderbolts. According to a Daily Mail newspaper article in April 2001, Chinese sources mention stars falling from the sky' in the time of Sennacherib (or roughly at that time). Velikovsky mentioned something like ...

... 514-7 We have reported the renewed interest in the cause of the extinctions at the end of the Cretaceous Period (when the dinosaurs died off) in WORKSHOP 2:4 and successive issues since. One theory seems to be gaining widespread support, the catastrophist ideas of Alvarez et al that 65 million years ago Earth was struck by a giant meteor/asteroid. In SCIENCE 22/8 /80 there was a paper by R. Ganapathy giving his results of chemical analyses on the "fish-clay" from Denmark which marks the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary. The elements Ir Os Au Pt Re Ru Pa Ni & Co appear in this boundary clay in amounts ranging from 5 to 100 times the ...

... . The outer layers of the cosmic body melt and disperse in the form of sparks. If the missile is sufficiently small, it may be completely vaporized before reaching the ground. It may also sometimes merely pass through our atmosphere and disappear again into outer space. The luminous phenomenon that characterises the meteorite's journey in the atmosphere is called a meteor: it appears in the form of a `shooting star'. By extension the name of meteor is also applied to a meteorite before it reaches the ground. Meteorites are nowadays classified as: (a ) Siderites, that are cosmic bodies composed of iron and a high percentage of nickel. (b ) Aerolithes, which are ...

... , not avant-garde. Still it is more complete, logical, exact, clear, and secular than any other work in geology that considers catastrophism. The comparable next best work, privately published and quite unknown, was completed at the same time by geologists Allan Kelly and Frank Dachille. That is: Target Earth: The Role of Large Meteors in Earth Science. Also more daring and provocative, and also highly professional in method, is geophysicist Melvin Cook's work that I already mentioned, Prehistory and Earth Models, published obscurely in England a decade later, which employed purely terrestrial forces in explaining Earth's features. Both books are superior in method to Velikovsksy's book, more complex and ...
