291. The Great Comet Venus [Journals] [Aeon]
... as the contemporary Europeans regarded them as signs of war, famine and pestilence." (71) Among the Aztecs, "Comets and earthquakes, which were always carefully marked down each year in the hieroglyphic manuscripts, were always considered omens of misfortune," notes Jacques Soustell. (72) In our investigation we have grouped comet and meteor symbolism together because mythically the two are synonymous. "Comets are referred to in Quiché [highlands Maya] as uje ch'umil, tail of the star, ' and are considered omens of massive pestilence," observes Barbara Tedlock. ". .. Throughout the Mayan area, meteors are thought to be evil omens forecasting sickness, war ...

292. Vox Popvli [Journals] [Aeon]
... of planetary catastrophism" with respect to Mars and the Earth and the "raining forth [of] extraterrestrial debris." Several pages are devoted to the current scientific theories regarding the meteorites' ejection from Mars' surface and their subsequent transport to Earth. The most likely, but still unexplained, cause for ejection is that of a larger meteoric impact of some sort on the Martian surface. All of which clearly indicates that the Martian meteorites Cochrane is writing about originated from the surface of Mars. But this is not what Velikovsky himself claimed! Cochrane's quote from Worlds In Collision reads: "When Mars clashed with Venus, asteroids, meteorites, and gases were torn from [ ...

... the principal antagonist, a battle that was experienced by a terrified mankind. Astrophysicists Victor Clube and William Napier have had suspicions about comet Encke, currently possessing a very short 3.3-year period, which was a far more expansive celestial body in the past that has since degraded with its cosmic debris scattered throughout its orbital ephemeris to give us meteoric showers every late June and early July and again in November. [5 ] But, before settling down in its current orbit, such a loose assembly may have visited devastation on both planets with split-off parts from the parent body impacting Earth and Mars, as well as the Moon, and causing widespread flooding on our planet with the ...

294. Thundergods and Thunderbolts [Journals] [Aeon]
... to fall down from heaven as a stone: "The thunderstone falls down from the sky in thunderstorms or, more accurately, whenever the lightning strikes. The stroke of the lightning, according to this view, consists in the descent of the stone; the flash and the thunder-clap are mere after-effects or secondary phenomena." [79] Meteors, in accordance with this belief, were identified with thunderstones throughout the ancient world. [80] As a testament to the durability of these archetypal traditions, Blinkenberg reports that: "In modern times meteors have in several places been looked upon as thunderstones." [81] It is doubtless in keeping with these widespread traditions identifying ...

... other cosmic body. Electrical discharges of this nature would have occurred over some hours in duration. Such a novel physical phenomenon would then tend to be described by technologically unsophisticated nomadic hunter-gatherers in terms of an Aboriginal metaphor, hence the term "rainbow snake." This would suggest that the Wolfe Creek Crater is a discharge crater and not a meteoric impact crater. O References: 1. Australia's Meteorite Craters, Alex Bevan and Ken McNamara, West Australian Museum, December 1993. 2.

296. Postscript to Theory Workshop [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... "punctuated by an earthquake, sonic booms, snow and a mysterious white light streaking across the sky.... "U .S . Geological Survey scientist Robert Decker said that a brilliant white light that streaked over the main island a week ago- just as Kilauea ended its one-day simultaneous eruption with Mauna Loa- was probably a meteor unrelated to the volcanoes." "Mauna Loa's eruption had begun on March 25," the Inquirer continued (4 /16/84). This means that it became active one week before the simultaneous eruptions. United Press International (3 /31/84) stated: "Lava from the Kilauea volcano stopped flowing today. ...

300. Second SIS Cambridge Conference Report [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... as highlighted by Benny Peiser (Liverpool John Moores University) the period c.2300 BC crops up surprisingly often, even in studies of dated craters. As for the archaeological record, it is still difficult to know what precise signature to look for: the Tunguska blast (which was undoubtedly devastating) left no crater, whereas the similar-sized Meteor Crater projectile left a hole more than a kilometre across. Moreover, as shown by Amos Nur (Stanford University) even earthquakes can produce regional devastation, and may occur bunched in time over a period less than a century, followed by a quiet phase lasting hundreds or thousands of years, rather like the frequency of impacts from a ...
