201. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Energy (New Scientist, 7.8 .04, p. 16) Astronomers used to think that all gamma-ray bursts were extremely energetic, as befits the collapse of a massive star, but they have now picked up some extremely weak bursts and have been forced to accept that there might be many more that they have previously missed. Meteoric History (New Scientist, 7.8 .04. p. 15 and 24.4 .04, p. 17) A lunar rock found in the deserts of Oman appears to have been hit at least three times while it was still on the Moon before a fourth impact, about 340,000 years ago, sent ...

202. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Other evidence from sediments worldwide indicate that ice ages occurred every 100,000 years, whereas the Milankovitch theory should operate at periods of 40,000 years. It is suggested that the 100,000 year period ties in with a cycle in which Earth moves above and below its orbital plane. This wobble would alter the amounts of incoming meteors and dust contaminating the atmosphere. Most ice age theories work on the assumption that any warming and cooling was greatest at the poles but an ice core from the Tibetan plateau, compared to those from Greenland, indicates that four warm spells during the last ice age showed much more warming in the subtropics than the poles. The core also ...

... that is wrong. It remains to be seen whether the 0.1 itself is wrong. Presumably it is but that will have to be decided on other grounds and in some other context. Lynn E. Rose, Solana Beach, California Configuratively speaking I have written before about the inadequacy of interpreting myths only in terms of comets and meteors ( 'Comets or Configuration', C&CR 1996:1 , p. 64). In the same issue (p . 33), Phillip Clapham had a short item entitled The Eloquent Talking Head of Bran', where he presents much interesting myth about heads. He interprets these as cometary heads, despite noting that ...

... proof of the stability of the Solar System in its major bodies, because all this tells you that the stable ones are the ones you have been observing. The unstable ones you wouldn't see in a fixed orbit for a long period of time. In fact, we know that the smaller objects in the Solar System, like comets, meteors, asteroids, are in very unstable orbits. My friends and colleagues at the Department of Planetology in Rome have recently done very large computations, using a Univac computer, on comets, and have found many instances of comets which have been captured by planets, become satellites of the planets and then subsequently escape into orbits wildly different from ...

... historian Holinshed records that fiery dragons were seen in the air in England. Two grievous plagues followed. 797 or thereafter, darkness was recorded for 17 days in Byzantium. 798- In Ireland, the annalist records a "nix Magna", a Great snow, with many dying. 798, 6/20. In China, a meteor falls in the northwest (This date does match a Clubean scenario) 798- According to Hovedon, a sudden conflagration destroyed London. 799- the day before St. Patrick's Day, the Irish Annals record a great wind accompanied by great thunder and lightning. 1100 people die. Also, thereafter, the sea divides the isle of ...

206. Letters. C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... explain the enclosing circle, serpent and primeval waters of myth but there is far too much else which it cannot explain. It seems to me that we are losing the courage to consider the more radical aspects of Velikovsky's work, both in catastrophism and chronology. Since Alvarez and the cometary collision with Jupiter cosmic catastrophism has become acceptable and the meteor stream catastrophes of Clube and Napier barely raise an eyebrow any more. Too many people seem to have accepted that scenario, almost as though it is assumed we can now safely rest on our laurels, but ad hoc attempts to explain all the complications of myth as due to meteor streams are as unconvincing as the ad hoc attempts by ...

207. Catastrophic Theory of Mountain Uplifts (A Crustal Deformation Theory) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... in the mind of Immanuel Swedenborg, although the term "uniformitarianism" was coined later. Swedenborg's idea of the nebular hypothesis was accepted and was popularized by Emanuel Kant in 1754. Their concept was that the Sun somehow extruded a cometary tail from which gases cooled and condensed, with the condensation forming the planets, satellites (moons), meteor streams, etc. (caption) The mountain arcs which collectively compose the two zones of recent orogenetic uplift, together with the epicenters of those arcs, and the great circle alignments of the epicenters. The two zones are the Alpine-Himalayan zone and the Circum-Pacific zone. WILSON, J. TUZO: The Earth as a Planet. Ed ...

... there are the native Indian races who are steadily becoming extinct despite all efforts to preserve them; and, correspondingly, in the south there are the Kanakas of Polynesia. Both regions of the earth are extremely ancient settlements, and none more so than the Polynesian Islands. For, unless all records are incorrect, or unless the system of meteoric impulses from the direction of the North Ecliptic Pole has been changed, lands were laid down invariably from that direction. It is there-fore only necessary for the reader to take a globe of the earth and revolve it so that the Polynesian Islands assume a position from north-east to south-west, when the earlier systems of earth-building can be observed along ...

209. CANEPA: BOOK REVIEW [Journals] [Aeon]
... unchanged for billions of years and those who opt for cosmic changes in the System within the memory of man, one could perhaps find it in the theoretical scenario proposed by Victor Clube and Bill Napier. Their theory propounds the occurrence of cataclysmic events, caused by extraterrestrial phenomena, within historical times. More specifically, they theorize that the Taurid meteor stream may be the remnants of a giant comet which terrorized ancient man. This giant comet, in turn, would have been generated when the distant Oort cloud was disturbed through one of its periodic galactic disturbances. The Origin of Comets was written by Clube and Napier in collaboration with M.A . Bailey. The book commences with ...

210. Tunguska 2001 Conference [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:2 (Dec 2000) Home | Issue Contents Tunguska 2001 Conference Preliminary Announcement: It seems that it is time to have a new conference on Tunguska, and Tunguska 2001 sounds rather good. I talked with several Tunguska researchers, and they approved the idea. A similar situation was in 1995 when Tunguska researchers having no financial support (Russian Min. of Science and Technology gave some financial support at the last moment), were able to organize the Tunguska 95 international conference. So despite the fact that we have no funds now, we are optimistic. The conference is to ...
