... that they alternated with conflagrations ; and that the flood constituted the winter of the great year, or astronomical cycle, while the conflagration, or destruction by fire, is the summer, or period of greatest heat.f If this passage, as Lipsius supposes, be an amplification, by Censorinus, of what is written in " the Meteorics," it is a gross misrepresentation of the doctrine of the Stagyrite, for the general bearing of his reasoning in that treatise tends clearly in an opposite direction. He refers to many examples of changes now constantly going on, and insists emphatically on the great results which they must produce in the lapse of ages. He instances particular ...

... not fit the Milankovitch theory very well, so now it is suggested that a controlling factor on climate is solar radiation, which varies with the Sun's magnetic activity. Radio bursts from the Sun during solar flares certainly affect things on earth: mobile phones can be disrupted, especially near dawn and dusk. Sound reception has often been reported by meteor watchers, confirmed by a team recording the Leonid meteor shower. There is still no accepted theory for this, however.

... remains of a single giant comet, the break up of which may be the one observed by the Greek historian Ephorus in 372 BC. Another comet, the brightest seen in the last three years, exploded in bits as it passed the Sun in July. The comet Temple-Tuttle gives rise to debris which is seen every November as the Leonid meteor shower but apparently these meteors sometimes burn up far too high above Earth for the usual explanation of friction in the atmosphere to apply. It seems there are more forces in space than meets most astronomers' eyes. Could they be electromagnetic? Amazing Asteroids Scientific American May 2000, pp. 28-37, The New York Times 3.8 ...

... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1996:1 Home | Issue Contents Letters Comets or configuration?I have been following Phillip Clapham's recent writings about British myths with great interest. I note that he is tending to explain most of the symbols and events in terms of comets and associated meteor streams, following the ideas of Clube and Napier. Whilst many of these images, for instance horses with flying manes, flashing spears, birds with long tails, rushing winds and associated screaming noise, will indeed fit a cometary scenario, I feel that there are other images which are more easily explained by the Polar Configuration theory of Talbott, Cardona and Cochrane. Black goddesses could ...

It translates properly as the working of star-iron. The Greek word for anvil, on which iron was worked, was close to the word for a meteoric stone. The Eygptians called iron "the bones of Typhon" and "a gift from Seth," both names corresponding to bodies crashing into the Earth, devil-monster and devil-god. Meteoritic iron was known to the early dynasties. "The Jews called iron ore nechoshet, which literally means the droppings of the (cosmic)serpent, ...

... of the uniformitarians, their old war-horse "chance," is in quicksand. Whether Glacis orbited Mars prograde or retrograde, how did the Halley fragment achieve a retrograde orbit without planetary catastrophism? All planets orbit in the direct (counter-clockwise) motion. Most major satellites orbit their focus planet in the same direction. Such is true of most meteor streams and nearly all visiting comets. Is it at this point that the remote Oort Cloud emerges as a call to faith without any substantiation? How did the Halley fragment's orbit achieve a 312-degree major axis longitude? In the planetary catastrophic view this fragment proceeded there directly upon being sling-shot around Earth when Earth was in the October 24 location ...

... From: The Mysterious Comet by Comyns Beaumont CD Home | Contents Part Three: Volcanic Powers And Limitations VII - The "drift" Mystery Cleared IN everything that has gone before I have endeavoured to prove by actual examples and the ensuing deductions the enormous debt our world owes to comets and meteors, themselves particles of comets great or small. When I use the word "debt" I am not thinking necessarily of the convenience of our crowded humanity in the world of to-day. To us the effect of these bodies great or small leads to tragic sufferings, to enormous financial losses, and to inclement weather. Yet, if this inter-planetary contact were to be non-existent there can ...

... mythology, we find that other peoples likewise described the "thunderbolt" as a stone thrown from heaven. In his landmark study of the thunderweapon in comparative religion, Blinkenberg summarized the ancient conception of lightning as follows: "The lightning, then, is produced by a stone which shoots down from heaven to earth." (142) Meteors, in accordance with this belief, were identified with thunderstones throughout the ancient world. (143) If the original reference for Indra's weapon was to a meteor-like object, both designations of the vajra- rock and metallic rock- would be equally appropriate, many meteorites being composed of iron. (144) Other traditions associated with the ...

190. Planetary Observations of the T'ang Dynasty [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Raspil Introduction Astronomers such as Victor Clube have now focused attention upon episodes of celestial catastrophism that may have occurred during the period from the beginning of the European Dark Ages to the era of the Black Death in the 14th Century and maybe beyond that. In explanation of such episodes, astronomers such as Clube have suggested that periodic terrestrial encounters with meteoric maelstroms - perhaps engendered by comets - have induced such catastrophes. In my researches of astronomical observations of the time, I have found evidence that may suggest other scenarios. Here, I will introduce a significant portion of this evidence anomalous observations of Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus, and Mercury made during the Tang Dynasty in China ...
