391. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... ? Perhaps a biology expert might like to comment? Studies have determined that the first plague coincided with the annual inundation in August, the last being on the 14th Aviv, about the end of March in the current calendar - some seven months later. This creates difficulties for any single astronomical explanation such as a comet, or an annual meteor shower, although the Perseids are a rich and reliable shower from 27th July to 17th August and a moderate shower, the Lyrids, can be seen 19th-22nd April; whether these were more spectacular and frightening 3,500 years ago is pure guesswork. Long term comets follow very eccentric orbits. In order for the Earth to pass through ...

... lightning in the region and note that the particular flash was not detected by equipment monitoring the skies for electromagnetic radiation in the very low and extremely low frequency domains usually associated with strong lightning discharges. In fact, no cloud-to-ground lightning was seen in the area for nearly two seconds around the emission's detection time. They note, however, that meteor trails were observed by the same equipment on another orbit two days later and posit that an extraterrestrial source of the event cannot be discounted. They note that the TIGER event was delayed from a distant lightning flash far longer than previously observed sprite or ELVES discharges and did not retain the jellyfish like (sprites) or doughnut (ELVES) ...

... by the complicity of various colleagues and networks of influence comparable only to acts of sabotage during wartime. But one need not be a conspiratorialist to see that Sagan's stairway didn't necessarily go to the top of the Ivory Tower. One wonders how Sagan, a man presumably able to tell number from numerology, could counter one of Velikovsky's claim about meteoric calumny by stating with a bald sophistry that meteors ". .. are generally observed to be silent." Yes, they are- unless one is heading your way. Then you are dealing with an atmospheric bow shock created by a body traveling from between 10 to 60 thousand miles an hour through an atmosphere that ordinarily transmits sound ...

... comet-Venus, around 1500 B.C ." (1 ) (It is to be understood, of course, that when Stove refers to "agents" or "extra-terrestrial agents," he does not mean little green men or friends of E.T ., but natural causes or agents like comets, meteorites, asteroid debris or meteor showers). Most of Velikovsky's adversaries do not seem to have ascertained the distinction between these theses, as a result of which different critics have mistaken different parts of the overall theory for the whole and their attacks have lacked focus. In my opinion, however, (as I will argue in the last chapter), it is ...

Presumably on impact with the ocean surface or at a certain depth below the surface, the missile will explode with an enormous release of energy . . . the turbulence of the tidal wave and accompanying wind, followed by the gigantic runoff from land would induce a turbid [sandy] environment . . . . The hypothesis of meteoric impact in the ocean explains equally the non-extinction of many forms of both marine and terrestrial life." (53) Why should Gould condemn Velikovsky's approach to the Old Red Sandstone as done rather poorly but does not condemn McLaren for suggesting the same process? In essence, a distinguished paleontologist claims that a celestial impact created an enormous amount ...

397. In Search of the Exodus [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Patten visualized a rogue planet, Mars, adding several hours to the "long, day" of Joshua by tilting the earth's orbit. [41 ,42] At the same time great stones fell from heaven upon the Canaanites- and the Israelites, we may assume, in going down to Beth-Horon. Such phenomena must be interpreted as meteoric, a distinct cosmic parallel that cannot be ascribed to earthquake, UFO's, gas balls, or terrestrial energy sources. A cometary body seems to have threatened the earth on diverse occasions, and we may guess that during other harmless appearances of comets they tended to produce apoplexy and hysteria. Patten compares the Celtic Sambaing festival and the myth ...

... of the shape delineated by the seven key stars of the Great Bear. The other interpretation was that of a specially shaped instrument used for prising open the mouths of the dead in an important funerary ritual known as the Opening of the Mouth ceremony. This instrument was made out of iron, the choice of material being apparently determined by its meteoric associations. As Wainwright notes, "the thunderbolt is a potent means of blasting open that which is closed". Thus the meteorite from whose iron the instrument was made could blast' open the dead man's mouth. It would seem, too, that it was the power of the thunderbolt that was appropriated for blasting open' the ...

It also deals with the question of the Greek prutanis, and the Etruscan lightning-averter. In the archery contest at the funeral games for Anchises, the arrow shot by Acestes caught fire and marked its path with flames until it was burnt up and disappeared. It was like those stars which often ...

... bottom of p.88 cites the Viking argon estimate, but tactfully spares Sagan any mention of that embarrassing Nitrogen!) Morrison, in his turn, attempts to rebut Velikovskian interpretations of planetary surface characteristics by a line of reasoning based on two propositions stated as though unquestionable: 1.) that virtually all caters have been formed by occasional meteoric impact (p . 367); and 2.) that age-measurements of lunar rocks by radiometric dating techniques are essentially accurate (p . 169). As we have seen, the dogma of only meteoric cratering is decisively contradicted by the "bimodal" surface of Mars. Moreover, the Velikovskian alternative theory - that many, perhaps ...
