331. The Core Ejection Hypothesis [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... would have a serious recent effect on the orbits of other planets. I do not know of any convincing evidence for this. I have to admit that Ellenberger's frequent and pugnacious criticism of everything that could be described as Velikovskian was beginning to make me wonder whether cosmic catastrophes really happened at all, other than by an occasional erratic comet or meteor, but his recent letter was so utterly non-scientific and intolerant that I realise we should treat his outpourings with great caution, whether they are in one's sphere of interest or not. When he declares another person's views are quite mistaken' or quite impossible' then there is not much point in continuing to discuss anything with him any longer ...

332. Mysterious Circles [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... of a falling object, like a meteorite or a particle of debris from a burnt-out space vehicle. Even if these did not travel as far as the ground, their ionised path would have the effect of increasing the voltage gradient near the ground. I asked Dr. Meaden if he knew of any correlation of the dates of observations of meteors or meteorites and the formation of circles and he replied he was sure there was no correlation, but did not say why. Another possibility briefly mentioned in Circular Evidence is that some characteristic of or emanation from the ground might cause increased flow of electrons into the atmosphere. A descending rotating column of air acts as a gyroscope and if ...

333. Morgan le Fay, Maid Marian and May Day [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the Beltane bonfire. Originally this was a bone fire and presumably at some stage in the past the drawer of the blackened piece became the human sacrifice to gods or goddesses associated with the blackness of a burnt landscape which Clube & Napier [6 ] associate with fireball explosions in the atmosphere and rains of fire on the earth below. Devastating meteoric falls could have affected climate on a global scale and the ability of crops to grow in succeeding seasons - a Grim Reaper indeed. Phillip Clapham References 1. TF O'Rahilly, Early Irish History and Mythology, Dublin,1964 2. According to Malory the sister of king Arthur was called Morgan le Fay, a combination of mor and ...

334. SIS Study Group June 1995 [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... a symbol for heaven. The first archaeological evidence for ball players is c. 1200 BC and for ball courts 900 BC. Quetzalcoatl was hit by an arrow, then burnt to death, then, when regenerated, was identified with the planet Venus, or a comet. In one case the diving god has been identified as a falling meteor. The Aztec description of comets is quite clearly similar to the cosmic serpent. Flood catastrophe in Mexican tradition is related in the codex Vaticanus. The flood comes from the sky. Two people are saved. In 1910 there was a re-enactment of Halley's comet at the carnival, with the sun and a moon goddess and stars. Therefore ...

... hurled by the Sun and other stars with millions and billions of electron volts of charged energy. Under the cover of the magnetosphere a layer of ozone protects the Earth and its denizens from ultraviolet light- the mutation-producing spectrum of invisible light accompanying the visible light coming from the Sun. X rays coming from space are also filtered out, and meteoric dust is mostly burned out in flight through the atmosphere. The Earth, with its atmosphere and oceans, rotates on its axis once in about twenty-four hours, and thus the alternation of day and night follows at periods convenient to the interchange of activity and rest, or nightly sleep. This measured sequence, so pleasing to us, ...

... was just on the stands. The timing of this first collision in the solar system claimed to have been observed by modern scientists, with the appearance of the article, took on the quality of a strange coincidence. Struve will write: Once again we have the question of "worlds in collision" and the resulting fragmentation of planetary and meteoric bodies. It is a bizarre coincidence that 1950, which produced the much-discussed Velikovsky book of science fiction, also produced a deluge of sound papers on various problems connected with collisions within the solar system. To this "deluge," according to Struve, will also belong a paper by Fred Whipple and Salah Hamid describing two real collisions ...

... eminent classicists like Ulrich Wilamowitz-Moellendorff and others identified Phaëthon as the Morning Star. Kugler, however, felt compelled to reject this accepted explanation because "the appearance of Venus as the Morning Star could not evoke, even in the boldest fantasy, the idea of a world catastrophe." Kugler thought that a world catastrophe took place when a huge meteoric train caused simultaneously a flood in Attica and a fire in Africa, because numerous ancient authors connected these two events with the disturbances caused by Phaëthon's unlucky ride in the sky. The literary tradition of the early centuries of the present era dated Phaëthon's conflagration and the coincident Deucalion's flood in the lifetime of Moses. Kugler would not regard these ...

338. Ishtar, Isis, Baal and the Aten [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Immanuel Velikovsky' published on pages 106-111 of SISR V:4 , 1980-81. The gist of his findings is that there have been periodic heavy bombardments of the solar system by comets at very long intervals. He dates a particularly significant cometary breakup to about 2,100 BC, associated with Encke's comet, the asteroid Hephaestos and the ß-Taurid meteor stream. He claims that from about 1000 BC names originally given to comets were gradually transferred to the more permanent but non-cometary Venus and Mars. He also makes much of the quaint astronomical theory' of Dr Velikovsky, presumably meaning Velikovsky's suggestion of major disruptions of the orbits of Venus and Mars. By the time of the Ninsianna tablet ...

The old people knew also that when the world was to come to an end, there were to be many signs. Among the stars would be many signs. Meteors would fly through the sky. The Moon would change its colour once in a while. The Sun would also show different colours. "My grandchild, some of the signs have come to pass. The stars have fallen among the people, but the Morning Star is still good to us, for we continue to live.. ...
