... in their travels (4 .619-23). 2 Met. 2.194-97: circumspice utrumque:/ fumat uterque polus quos si vitiaverit ignis/atria vestra ruent Atlas en ipse laborat/ vixque suis umeris candentem sustinet axem. 252 The Phaethon story has often been understood to commemorate some great flashing event in the skies, whether comet or meteor. Everyone rushes by instinct more accurately, habit for a so- called natural explanation. But on examination, the case turns out not to be so easy. The narrating of the cataclysm may be fanciful and impressionistic, as if the poets enjoyed an emotional release from the regularity of celestial orbs, but their account also ...

... terrain reminiscent of the present caps familiar layering, which could indicate cyclic climatic changes." What Schultz and Lutz-Garihan suggest is that the whole Martian crust was redistributed by internal forces and that its poles moved. What is clearly indicated is that Mars' present equatorial region was once near the poles, but was then catastrophically reoriented either by huge meteoric impacts or a near encounter with a large body. But this evidence is clearly in full accord with Velikovsky's analysis. In fact, to explain the catastrophic appearance of the Martian terrain, one geologist, Bill Beatty, believes Mars must have experienced a Velikovskian episode. Randolph R. Pozos in The Face of Mars, (Chicago 1986 ...

... fragment of Aeschylus, addressed to a female chorus: "You are to stand round this altar and shining fire, and pray, in a circular formation." The word tragedy comes from ode', song, and tragos', goat. The other word for a goat, aix, is used by Aristotle to mean a fiery meteor. Tragedy, according to Aristotle, developed from the leaders (exarchontes) of the dithyramb. The first name known to us of a tragedian is that of Arion, who flourished around 600 B.C . in the city of Corinth. Choral odes in tragedy retained the Doric dialect of Dorian Corinth. Thespis, about 536, ...

... , it should show only gradual temperature changes as per uniformitarian belief. On the basis of Velikovsky's hypothesis, the amount of snow that fell during the period of darkness would not be related to gradual temperature changes. Snow would have been derived from both cold and warm water sources. Not only would the oceans boil in some places, but meteors would have fallen into the oceans in cool regions, lifting immense amounts of water and water vapour into the atmosphere. As I pointed out in Carl Sagan and Immanuel Velikovsky: The topography of the sea floor around Britain, like that of its land area, has formed over many thousands of years and results from many well-understood processes. ...

... the November 1991 Haliburton seminar) Notwithstanding his documented shortcomings, Immanuel Velikovsky, more than any other individual, was the catalyst for the revival of catastrophist thought in the space and earth sciences since World War Two. The Alvarez paper of 1980 sparked the productive phase of modern catastrophism, with ordinary scientists publishing findings that supported a hypothesized catastrophe of meteoric or cometary collision at the K-T boundary. Over 80 scientific reports support this disruptive event of 65 million years ago. Clube and Napier's Cosmic Serpent and Cosmic Winter put the K-T disaster into a broad astronomical perspective and support Velikovsky's fundamental idea of global catastrophe in historical times when people were living in cities. I propose to show that uniformitarianism ...

406. The Scars of Mars Part I [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... July 1984) Home | Issue Contents The Scars of Mars Part I Donald W. Patten Introduction For at least a century it has been speculated that some relatively small planet at one time disintegrated in the region between Jupiter and Mars. Struve and Zebergs, for example, write as follows: [1 ] The formation of the asteroids arid meteors often has been attributed to the break-up of a planet between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, or to the failure of the matter occupying this region to condense into a single body. And Pickering notes: [2 ] Theories of their origin are divided between their being (a ) the debris of an ancient planetary collision, or ...

... view. Firstly, some recent studies of the fossil record suggest that evolution has been episodic, with abrupt transitions between forms rather than a slow and stately procss of change. Secondly, the role of extraterrestrial processes (particularly asteroidal and cometary impacts) has come to prominence as a potent evolutionary driving force. Sudden catastrophic events, such as meteor showers, may cause mass extinctions followed by rapid bursts of new species. To argue his case, Palmer starts the book by introducing the role of extraterrestrial events in Earth history and in the history of bodies in the Solar System. In Chapter 2, he examines the historical background to catastrophism. The main point of this chapter is ...

... size and significance of our world thus appear to be matters of perspective. All this available space unquestionably works to our advantage. We are separated from other planet-sized bodies by hundreds of thousands to hundreds of millions of miles. We move around the sun in our own private and tranquil path, greeted by no more than an occasional shower of meteors. We have learned not to expect otherwise. To encounter another body the size of the earth would be unthinkable, a horror unimaginable. "Science" assures us that it has never happened. Beneath our feet in the crust of the earth is another world-the world of the ancient past. There we find locked in place, seemingly ...

... . As Talbott said, when asked whether he should suggest some physical principles which could account for his scenario, I'm not a physicist' [4 ]. Neither am I but remember that things once thought impossible have eventually been found to be possible and that many of these have ended up becoming dogmas of science - e.g . meteoric falls, the non-illusory nature of comets and continental drift. However let's put all that aside and concentrate on the demands which the Saturnian configuration theory raises - and whether or not these can be met. What do I mean by demands'?Theories do not stand in isolation; they raise certain demands. For instance, the theory ...
