... is far beyond; and I repent not going there, but I was not worthy. But as I have heard say of wise men beyond I shall tell you with good will. Terrestrial Paradise, as wise men say, is the highest place of the earth; and it is so high that it nearly touches the circle of the moon there, as the moon makes her turn. For it is so high that the flood of Noah might not come to it, that would have covered all the earth of the world all about and above and beneath except Paradise. And this Paradise is inclosed all about with a wall, and men know not whereof it is; ...
112. Megalithic Astronomy and Catastrophism [Journals] [Pensee]
... an approximate track of the year by using natural marks in this way. However, Thom claims that the solar observatories in Britain were much more accurate than this and capable of defining the solstices and equinoxes to the day. Furthermore, he explains other standing stone sites as carefully designed observation points from which the much more complex motions of the Moon could be studied, and to such a degree that eclipse prediction may have been possible. These feats involve technical problems of observation which must be briefly described. At the solstices the real position of the Sun against the stars (its declination, measured to the center of the disc) changes extremely slowly as it stops moving north ( ...
113. Trisms and Planetary Iconography [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... original works of mythical and religious art, I hope to demonstrate that these elements not only offer more evidence of this instability, but also will contribute to our understanding of the nature of this instability. Velikovsky believed he had found evidence that parts of Homer's Iliad described anomalous behavior within the solar system, particularly involving Venus, Mars and the Moon. (4 ) Figure 1, below, is my rendition of the ancient Greek duel of Menelaos and Hector over the body of Euphoros, with a checkered triangle (described as a gameboard) suspended between them. While the duel appears real enough, the strange decorations in the background do not. Did these decorations represent objects visible ...

... top in order to show that they hit the ground at the foot at the same time, no matter what their weight, and there is no reason to believe that Galileo ever did this, but it is a legitimate legend, because in fact it's an experiment that has been carried out and in fact was first carried out on the Moon by the astronauts, because of course there is a vacuum there. But the actual legend itself is completely false, there is no more truth in it than the idea, which is sometimes put abroad, that the town council of Pisa wants to put a clock in the tower because what is the good of having the inclination if ...
115. The Revelation of John (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... From: Moons, Myths and Man by H. S. Bellamy CD Rom Home Last | Contents | Next 19 The Revelation of John A DOCUMENT OF THE OBSERVATION OF THE CATACLYSM CAUSED BY THE TERTIARY SATELLITE The Bible starts with a scant account of the creation of heaven and Earth; it ends with a detailed vision of the end of this heaven and this Earth, and the making of a new heaven and a new Earth. While the opening verses of the Old Testament are made obscure by their paucity of description, the closing chapters of the New Testament dazzle us by their extreme wealth of imagery. Many persons have expounded the creation myth in Genesis; the end ...

... edu, Bill Steigerwald, NASA GSFC + 1 (301) 286-5017, firstname.lastname@example.org To Coincide with Publication in the Journal Science. Lunar Prospector Measurements Show How Meteor Impacts Have Shaped the Moon's Magnetic Field Berkeley- The first four months of data from the Lunar Prospector, a satellite that has orbited the moon since January, has yielded a wealth of new information about magnetic fields on the moon and the possible geologic history of the lunar surface. In particular, magnetic field measurements by an instrument built at the University of California, Berkeley Space Sciences Laboratory give strong support to the theory that giant meteor impacts billions of years ago created areas of ...
... From: Moons, Myths and Man by H. S. Bellamy CD Rom Home Last | Contents | Next 35 Myths relating to the Formation of the Mediterranean The formation of the Mediterranean was due to a cataclysm which caused great changes in what was probably a well-populated area. When the Atlantic waters of the capture tide flooded the Mediterranean basin from the west, and the waters of the Mediasiatic Sea surged in from the east, when, perhaps, even waters from the Indian Ocean, coming up through the Red Sea, entered the Levantine basin from the south, many cultures met their end, or suffered at least a great caesura in their development and continuity. The ...

... fully armed and with a shout [1 ]. She was cometary Venus-fiery-faced, owl-eyed, helmeted and horned, with a long gown and hair trailing behind. Meanwhile, in Mesopotamia the Akkadians were also chanting hymns to Venus, going here by the name of Inanna:[2 ] By night she sends out light like the Moon does. At noonday sends out light like the Sun does. The mistress of Evening whose largeness is until the limit of Heaven... The Holy light that fills the Heavens. Inanna who shines as far as the Sun. These words, along with the symbols of Inanna (Figure 31) part the curtains upon "a ...

... to analysis by celestial mechanics. One of the more interesting aspects proposes there was a cometary tail belonging to the Jovian Venus. This cometary idea bears directly on the issue of escape velocities for gases and for planetary masses. Some Solar System bodies cannot, and never could, retain atmospheres. Included are planets like Mercury, satellites like the Moon, asteroids like Ceres and small ice ball nuclei like Halley's Comet. The reason they cannot retain atmospheres is that their masses are too small to retain gases. 1. ESCAPE VELOCITIES ESCAPE VELOCITIES apply to both gas molecules and space missile launches. This section is directed only to gases, and the ability of planetary bodies to retain gases ...

... scholar.2 Judging by the accurate methods employed and the prec ision achieved in their observations, the stargazers of Nineveh would not have erred by nine days. In the astronomical tablets of Nineveh "three systems of planets" are extensively represented; single planets are followed in all their movements in three different schedules. For the movements of the moon there are two different systems.3 Each of these systems is carried out down to the smallest detail, but only the last system of the planets and of the moon conforms to the present world order. According to Tablet No. 93, the perihelion, or the point on the earth's orbit that is nearest the sun, is ...
