362. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... " or "billions" of years might in reality be mere thousands, the implications are startling. Until the break-up, we read, the planet "would be plainly visible by day and brilliant by night"; immediately prior to its disappearance, it "must have temporarily outshone the sun"; the explosion would have resulted in "meteor showers unprecedented in the Earth's history", a sky "ablaze with meteors for months" and filled with comets for "thousands of years"; and the deluge of water from the explosion might have been responsible for the onset of the ice ages. There is much that will strike a student of catastrophism as familiar in the description ...

... in recognized science journals and that the submitter comply with valid criticisms. The question arises: Does Sagan himself always follow this time honored procedure? In recent years, Carl Sagan has become the leading exponent of a very controversial theory termed, "Nuclear Winter." This hypothesis offers an explanation for the death of the dinosaurs. If a meteor about six kilometers in diameter struck the Earth 65 million years ago, Sagan claims that the dust thrown into the atmosphere and the smoke from forest fires would be so great as to have blocked sufficient sunlight from reaching the Earth and thus caused a global freeze which he calls "nuclear winter." Sagan further claims an atomic war would ...

365. Physics, Astronomy and Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 10 km in diameter would have been big enough to wipe out the dinosaurs. Hephaistos has an orbit which at some time is likely to cross the Earth's, and, interestingly, it has a very similar path to Encke's comet. Some years ago American astronomer Fred Whipple suggested that Encke's comet, together with the [beta] -Taurid meteor stream, once composed a much larger comet, formerly in an Earth-crossing orbit, which broke up around 2500 BC. Clube and Napier have taken the argument a stage further by calculating that Hephaistos is another chunk of this disintegrating comet, concluding that "almost certainly a 20-km comet was in an Earth-crossing orbit and breaking up, round about ...

366. Shamir [Journals] [SIS Review]
... mass into heavy nuclei? The pressures and temperatures at Earth's core are far too low to trigger nuclear fusion. However, very high pressures and temperatures are found within bolts of ordinary atmospheric lightning. There is no evidence that lightning strikes have ever caused localised nuclear fusion but under exceptional atmospheric conditions, e.g . in a cometary or meteoric bombardment of the Earth, could lightning strikes of abnormal intensity be triggered and nucleosynthesis become possible? Earlier we quoted the LoJ account of how Solomon acquired shamir. Despite its implausibility, note the involvement of the Angel of the Sea' and that the shamir was carried by a flying bird (i .e . it came from the ...

367. How the Gods Fly [Books] [de Grazia books]
... events of the third category include Mars disturbing Moon and Earth disturbing Mars with discharges of electricity and material. Earth slows Mars' rotation causing heating and jostling. Venus showers Moon with the sparks of Hephaestus' smithy. The intervention of Venus behind Mars and Moon causes heightened disturbances. Terrible noises are heard - electrical, atmospheric and/or meteoric in origin. Incandescences of Mars, the Moon, and Venus (already incandescent for over 700 years) are noted, from which great heat is inferred caused by electrical discharges, crustal frictions from altered motions, vulcanism, and atmospheric turbulence, especially on Venus. The appearance of the Moon is altered. Its rocks seem new, ...

... sea earlier from the fallen member of Uranus; the latter arose later from the seed of the fallen Python. Probably the new myth was grafted upon the old. On still another level of suggestibility is the profile that the hobbling smith in the sky would provide. It is easy to see in many artifacts the shapes that celestial bodies like meteors and comets take. Nevertheless it may be of some value to mention that a comet in a typical apparition is an angel with wings and flowing gown, a head with horns, a helmeted head (Athena), a long-haired one (coma means hair in Greek), a phallus with testes, and even a head with two ...

... tree of the field." (Exodus 9:24-5) Social or cosmic upheaval? Let us see, then, what Velikovsky has managed to make of some of these socio-political upheavals by taking their descriptions out-of-context and re-interpreting them. The most outrageous example is when the free-wandering cattle in the ANET extract just quoted are made to flee by meteoric hail! In Worlds in Collision (I , ii: "The Hail of Stones") Velikovsky writes: "Similarly, the Egyptian eyewitness: "Cattle are left to stray, and there is none to gather them together. Each man fetches for himself those that are branded with his name." Falling stones and fire made ...

... incursions by swarms of meteorites from time to time. A regular swarm hits the atmosphere and is to be seen on or about August 10 of each year. Their effects go generally unnoticed. Several reliable accounts of meteorite swarms of greater moment are available: the widespread terror is noticeable; the incitement of earth's tremors has been attributed to some meteors. Strange effects such as gas clouds, ball-lightning, and small gelatinous masses have been partially verified. No effects comparable to those of Exodus are demonstrated. Especially in view of the astonishing irregularities that have been ascribed to the sun in the past several years [81], one might think of blaming the sun for the Exodus catastrophe ...
