211. ADS Abstracts [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1999:2 (Oct 1999) Home | Issue Contents ADS Abstracts These extracts come from the ADS Abstract Service at http://cdsads.u-strasbg.fr/abstract_service.html Catastrophic disruption of large meteoroids The sounds accompanying electrophonic burster meteors are characteristically described as being akin to short duration "pops" and staccato-like "clicks". Here we present a model for the generation of short-duration pulses in an observer's local electrostatic field. The electrophonic bursters are associated with the catastrophic disruption of large meteoroids in the Earth's atmosphere. Astronomy and Astrophysics, v.345, p.L27-L31 (05/1999), "A space charge ...
212. The Paleo-Saturnian System [Journals] [Aeon]
... by human beings. Stephen Gould has emphasized how amazing it is that human beings exist at all since we happen to be "an improbable and fragile entity...the result of a staggeringly improbable series of events, utterly unpredictable and quite unrepeatable."  It need not even be mentioned how crucial it was that Alvarez's meteor happened to be just the right size, hitting at just the right speed, etc., for it to eliminate 90 percent of Earth's fauna while leaving the mammals intact without a trace of the nasty dinosaurs who had kept us scurrying on the night-time forest floor for eons. Thus, in light of all the above, I believe ...
... them. They told Demetrius that when these things happened some of the aerial gods or genii ceased to live, and though they were beneficent, "at their death they turn all things to confusion, make tempests, and infect the air with pestilence". The conclusion I draw from the foregoing is that Demetrius witnessed by mere chance a meteoric storm and that Druid seers improved the shining hour by giving him a lesson on meteorism. I should incline to place the venue of this encounter rather in the neighbourhood of Iona or Staffa except that it would have been almost inaccessible to the Roman Demetrius.3 The genii of the Underworld cult were often the subject of invocations. A ...
214. Scientific Evidence for A Major World Catastrophe About 11,500 Years Ago: A Preliminary Selection [Journals] [SIS Review]
... as a deltaic formation at the mouth of the Fraser River in British Columbia. There, unexpected concentrations of manganese, cobalt, iron, lead, zinc and copper have been found . Such high temperature ores are not produced by agencies which accumulate loess or drift' like deposits. They are produced deep within the Earth or arrive meteorically, having formed elsewhere under extremely hot conditions. The occurrence of silica in the loess correlates with the aforementioned silicate origins of diamonds, locally present in the drift of many areas and both with the marked volcanism of late Pleistocene times. Is it coincidence that immense banks and lenses of now frozen volcanic dust and ejecta occur confusedly among the ...
215. The Opening of The Mouth Ritual - Part II [Journals] [Aeon]
... Ev Cochrane, in this journal and its predecessor KRONOS). A few of these Sat-urnian links can be summarized as follows: the main events took place at night, the archaic "day." there are many references to the direction North. the colours white, green or blue, and red predominate. the funeral instruments are of meteoric iron, the Metal of Heaven. the mummy, wrapped in strips of white linen, evoked the spiral fila-mentary appearance of the polar co-lumn. coffins and statues were propped upright on mounds of sand facing south in imitation of the World Moun-tain and the Saturnian configuration as a colossal northern god. the purpose of the rite was to re-animate ...
216. The Atlantis Secret [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2002:1 (Sep 2002) Home | Issue Contents The Atlantis Secret www.eridu.co.uk/Author/atlantis/ The Cataclysm of All Cataclysms: Ancient man witnessed an extraordinary array of cosmic activity: comets and meteors lighting up the skies, fireballs exploding in the atmosphere, and meteorites plunging to the ground. But what effects did such things have on the human psyche? In this remarkable book, Alan F. Alford explains how the sages of old drew an astonishing conclusion: long ago, they decided, a living planet had exploded and seeded the beginning of all life on Earth. This "Cataclysm of all cataclysms ...
217. The Countdown to a New Celestial Hazard [Journals] [Aeon]
... this remnant is now important. The meteoroidal swarm has likewise never been directly seen. Nevertheless there have been several recent penetrations of the 7:2 Jovian resonance in question, with effects lasting a week, as expected, which are consistent with the swarm's existence. The first of these (8 ) was simply a rare enhancement of the meteor flux in the November Taurids of 1951. Subsequently a remarkable balloon observation during a similar encounter in 1968 showed four Taurid meteors traversing the atmosphere tangentially which had been released during the break-up of a massive meteoroid as it approached the Earth. (9 ) The implied swarm of massive meteoroids was then detected for the first time when the June ...

... proteins, such as cytochrome oxidase, essential to the respiratory chain in life processes. ed.] required to deal with molecular oxygen on Earth adventitiously evolved on Jupiter by Jovian organisms hoping some day to be transported to Earth?" Next there is the problem of fly ablation. Small flies have just the same mass and dimensions as small meteors, which are burned up at an altitude of about 100 kilometers when they enter the Earth's atmosphere on cometary trajectories. Ablation accounts for the visibility of such meteors. Not only would cometary vermin rapidly be transformed into fried flies on entrance into the Earth's atmosphere; they would, as cometary meteors today, be vaporized into atoms and never ...

... , 836, 837, 838( 2), 840( 2), 841( 2), 842, 844, 852, 853, 855, 857, 858, 864( 2), 866( 2), 867, 868( 3), 869, 873 and 875( 2), sometimes in association with meteor showers [16, 25]. Regardless of the specific issues, it must be concluded that a long-enduring environmental downturn on two continents, starting around the same time, requires a major cause and this could well be an extraterrestrial one. Acknowledgments We are grateful to Neil Bone, Richardson Gill, John Grattan, Joel Gunn and John ...
220. The Method of Science [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... " (p . 87), not realising that for molten rock, solidification rates are only minimally affected by day or night). Claims that lunar magnetism "remains a mystery" are supported by citations almost 20 years old and omission of all subsequent work! Blindness! On pages 77 and later, he discusses the required amounts of meteoric material, if craters are impact-generated. But, first, he uses the Barringer Crater in Arizona as a baseline, although as a metallic meteorite it left much more easily discovered fragments than most meteorites. On pages 93 [to] 94, Ginenthal uses a quotation about an estimated 27 [feet] to 54 feet of meteoric material ...
