11. Commemoration Of The 2300bc Event [Journals] [SIS Review]
... over the Earth for thousands of years and is even commemorated today, though the meaning has dimmed with time. The present paper covers: 1. the likelihood of an intense encounter with the Taurid stream, 2. the likelihood of a frightening light and sound show, 3. the likelihood of death and destruction due to flooding accompanying the meteor fall and 4. the likelihood of the event being remembered. The Likelihood of an Intense Encounter with the Taurid Stream The Taurids are a large meteoroid stream but their current density and arrival rate is low - one-tenth of some other streams. This is blamed on the fact that their orbital planes lie close to the mean plane of Mercury ...

... From: The Riddle of the Earth by Appian Way CD Home | Contents Chapter VII Volcanic Dependence Upon Meteors ORIGIN OF EARLY NATURE WORSHIP THE function of a volcano is to produce. It obeys, as has been observed before, the laws of sex, inasmuch as it is the receptive agency, the female principle; indeed, upon consideration, the orifice, of circular or elliptical form, follows the principle of the vagina and uterus, as the meteor takes the shape of the upright pillar. It will be necessary in tracing this aspect of Nature to the earliest human knowledge on this vital matter to show that such was the belief of the ancients. It is the ...

14. "As Above, So Below" Earthquakes, Volcanoes, and Straight-Line Phenomena [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... the past three decades was due, to Fort's [1973:134] way of thinking, to the "evil of modem specialization.... by exclusionist science to attribute all disturbances of this earth's surface to a subterranean origin." It was Gilbert [Bennett, 1967:12], for example, who decided that the Meteor Crater, in Arizona, was "the result of a volcanic steam explosion. .. .. . The force of Gilbert's reputation was so strong that it took nearly 40 years for the volcanic theory to be completely replaced by the impact theory." The person most responsible for the acceptance of the contact theory was mining engineer D ...

[Page 92-93]: Almost all of the astromantic texts which speak of meteors, etc., are of a type also known as celestial omens. An example of such a text is the following (Thompson, 1900, 202 obv. lines 5 to 9) ...

... whence arose the race of Adam; we talk of " human clay," and when at length we die we are described as having come from the dust and to dust we return. We find the same principle enunciated among the past and present races of the world. In his " Atlantis " Plato tells how Poseidon the earthquake or meteor god, associated with the sea, created Atlantis and gave it to Atlas, and this Mount Atlas, a volcano, was the father of the race of Atlanteans from whom, amongst others, the Greeks were descended. There was Mt. Prometheus, so sacred to the former race of men, also a volcano (94, ...

I could, if it were needed, fill this work with meteorological episodes to show how the weather is affected over wide and distant areas by new causes; that, unless it were replenished from reservoirs somewhere else, this world of ours would go dry, and that, therefore, we must visualise a frequent transmission of new atmospherics injected or projected, by what, for want of a better term, we must call Divine Intervention, into this sphere. I might term it the fruits of celestial ...

... of his soldiers [4 ]. Velikovsky claimed a blast from God' smote the camp of the vast army of the Assyrian king Sennacherib [5 ]. There are many references in myth that might be likened to fire from heaven, but what exactly was meant is difficult to judge. Could it be a description of meterorites, or meteors? Meteorite specialist Alastair McBeath [6 ], writes that meteors are sometimes called fireballs', since they first appear in the sky as a fast-moving bright light, or shooting star. A fireball is defined as an object as bright as Jupiter or brighter. ' A bolide is a very bright fireball. Its name is derived from ...
