... From: The Mysterious Comet by Comyns Beaumont CD Home | Contents Part Four: The Deterioration Of Climate V - Earth's Climate Deteriorates Now that we have examined into the question of the augmentation of the seas, for various reasons based on meteor deposits of gases condensed in our atmosphere, the next question to be resolved is that of the effect on climate of these accretions. It is steady and unmistakable. The world's climate has, in the course of ages, become gradually more frigid. There can be no question of this. I am not alluding to far-distant epochs when the earth in its first pangs of labour, revolving infinitely closer to the sun than it is now ...

... and points to the theoretical possibility of much greater fuel deposits being found at great depths in the crust of Earth. The Swedish government are taking Gold seriously: they are helping to fund a project to drill into the bedrock of Lake Siljan in central Sweden to look for large stores of natural gas, as the lake is a site of meteor impact 360 Myrs ago, and may yield up its underlying gas as a result of fractured bedrock from the ancient impact.

... bronze. 4. Not only is there all this evidence that the pyramids were built at least in the Bronze Age but there are details of the iron plate which apparently sealed the southern channel in the King's Chamber - i.e . it was contemporaneous with the pyramid and could not have been dropped' there later. It was not meteoric and it seems that it could originally have been covered with gold. Jill Abery, Rodmersham, Kent Astronomical retro-calculations David Rohl greatly weakens the chronological hypothesis which he very ably presents in A Test of Time when he emphasises that Wayne Mitchell's astronomical retrocalculations support his chronology. Wayne Mitchell's calculations have every appearance of being very ably conducted. The ...

414. Thoth Vol III, No. 1: Jan 15, 1999 [Journals] [Thoth]
... MARS ROCKS IN ANCIENT MYTH AND MODERN SCIENCE: Part I of II By Ev Cochrane [ed note: this article was originally printed in AEON: Vol IV No 2, pg 57-73. Footnotes are available there.] On June 28th, 1911, the inhabitants of Nakhla, Egypt, were treated to a spectacular meteor shower. As it turns out, one of these rocks almost certainly came from the planet Mars, nearly 50 million miles away. The difficulty in dislodging a meteorite from the red planet, much less transporting one to Earth, has prompted several noted authorities to doubt their Martian origin. The meteorite's chemical imprint, however, not unlike ...

... of place. It is airless and has a surface albedo of only 7%. The surface is heavily cratered, has extensive smooth basaltic plains and crustal rifts, but shows no sign of crustal shifting. Although dormant volcanos are few and small, many surface features are indicative of lava flows. Many craters appear to have been caused by meteoric impacts, and ejecta sprays are common. Maximum ejecta spray velocities are high enough to overcome the Moon gravity, and meteorites have been found on Earth that almost certainly originated on the Moon. The Moon always turns the same face towards the Earth. Surface temperatures on the Moon range from 374 K at the subsolar point, to 213 ...

... . (27) Democritus, similarly, is said to have held that comets were the souls of men of renown. (28) In Mesoamerican lore the soul of a shaman was believed to depart in the form of a comet. (29) Frazer, in his extensive researches into ancient beliefs, found that "a widespread superstitionassociates meteors or falling stars with the souls of the dead. Often they are believed to be the spirits of the departed on their way to the other world." (30) The question facing the investigator of these widespread traditions is not only how to account for their origin, but for their strange specificity. Why would a comet be ...

... rules are not altered up and down, so that the stars at times change nature and now and then act in a different way with wandering and change of orbits. ' (Epinomis 982 C.) Although Plato here states his general principle, his choice of words intimates that he had concretely in mind the contention which Aristotle too (Meteor, 1343A) tries to refute, that a planet may become a comet or a comet may become a planet. On the basis of this view of astronomy Plato states that there are two conceptions of science, one that we may call noumenic and the other that we may call phenomenic. According to the first, the physical order ...

... the centre. Eddington, who is responsible for the standard model, wrote: In seeking a source of energy other than [gravitational] contraction the first question is whether the energy to be radiated in future is now hidden in the star or whether it is being picked up continuously from outside. Suggestions have been made that the impact of meteoric matter provides the heat, or that there is some subtle radiation traversing space which the star picks up. Strong objections may be urged against these hypotheses individually; but it is unnecessary to consider them in detail because they have arisen through a misunderstanding of the nature of the problem. No source of energy is of any avail unless it ...

... devastating if the comet were very large [4 ]. Besides, he warned that his own calculations, reinforcing Newton's conception of regularity in the movements of the orbs, did not take into account "various causes that can be ascertained by careful analysis, but which are impossible to frame within a calculation;" such would be comets, meteors, and even electric and magnetic forces. "The sky itself, despite the orderliness of its movements, is not unalterable." So spoke Laplace. However, because the heavens have "settled down" in recent millennia, major displacements and encounters are increasingly unlikely. The celestial encounters of 2700 years ago may have been the last ...

... over two centuries. The other general approach has been that of fiat creationism. This 6-day genesis has been affirmed in some theological circles as a great, if inexplicable achievement of The Lord. In this approach, the solar system (including the Sun) was suddenly brought forth from nothingness, along with satellite systems, comets, asteroids, meteor streams and galaxies all within the last 10,000 years. Fiat creationists resort to the first chapter of Genesis as their basic dogma, and opine on various interpretations of the six days described therein. We think that a grave mistake has been made, universally, by fiat creationists. We understand in their theology, the earliest mention ...
