... , "In 1973 an important aspect of the surface of Venus, verified by many later observations, was discovered by Dr. Richard Goldstein and associates... They found from radar that penetrates Venus' clouds and is reflected off its surface, that the planet is mountainous in places and cratered abundantly; perhaps, like parts of the Moon, saturation cratered -i.e ., so packed with craters that one crater overlaps the other." 4 Sagan confidently says that the evidence appears to show that Venus is cratered like the Moon. This is quite remarkable, because Isaac Asimov tells us such pictures are rather fuzzy. He writes, "Beams of microwaves, striking ...
162. Myths of the Cataclysm Caused by the Breakdown of a Former Satellite (The Book of Revelation is History) [Books]
... surface features of the brilliantly lighted -cosmic body reveals certain details, some of which are clear-cut and easily named, while others are more indistinct and allow only a general description. The clear-cut features are the ring-pits, or walled plains, or `craters', which covered the surface of the former satellite as they do that of our present moon. They are addressed as `yellow, flat, roundish, wick-lamps' (12b); the expression `candlesticks' is a glaring mistranslation, while the word `gold' only means `brilliantly yellow'. Wax-lights, candles, were not known to the Greeks, nor to the Semitic peoples of Asia Minor: only terracotta ...

164. Capture Flood Myths (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... From: Moons, Myths and Man by H. S. Bellamy CD Rom Home Last | Contents | Next 26 Capture Flood Myths Capture Flood myths are of necessity rather rare. While the powers of the dying Tertiary satellite, whose cataclysm caused the Great Flood, were slowly waning and the girdle-tide was flowing off more or less gradually in its early stages, the powers of the Moon asserted themselves suddenly and, within an extremely short time, pulled all the waters they could control into the tropical districts. The breakdown was a matter of many weeks; the capture was accomplished in a very few hours. The Great Flood found many inhabitants of the northern and southern life-zones ...
165. On Morrison: Some Final Remarks (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... in some cases he has badly misread my arguments. Since I believe the record should be cleared for your readers, I request the courtesy of an opportunity to reply in your pages to Mr. Juergens. References are to volume [III:2 or IV:2 ] and page number of his two papers. Because Venus and the Moon appear to offer the most clear-cut astronomical opportunity to test Velikovsky's theories, I will limit my discussion to these two objects. Let me begin with the "Coup de Grāce" issue of surface relief on Venus as an indication that internal energy is not a major contributor to the high surface temperature. Juergens (IV, 71-74) has ...
166. Book Reviews [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Dogon knew not simply this bare fact but also that the companion to Sirius is exceedingly dense (it is a "white dwarf" and although it emits light, is masked by its brighter partner) and that the period of rotation is 50 years. (They also appear to have known that Saturn has rings and that Jupiter has four moons.) This discovery led Temple into a study of the importance of Sirius in ancient myth and religion, particularly in Egypt and Greece, and also of stories which refer to the 50-year cycle (for instance that of the 50-oared Argo , a ship). He establishes a route by which the Sirius-lore could have reached Mali by the ...
167. Venus and Mars [Books] [de Grazia books]
... From: Solaria Binaria, by Alfred De Grazia and Earl R. Milton Home | Issue Contents CHAPTER SIXTEEN Venus and Mars It is no longer fashionable to believe that Venus and Mars are beautiful bodies, with some congenital blemishes. Like Moon and Mercury, like Earth itself, they shriek of more recent disasters. The major question now is " How recent is recent'?" We address the question to their peculiarities of motion, position, composition, and behavior. Myth and legend (in its deliberate attempts at science) afford voluminous material about both planets, their transactions with each other, and their encounters with Moon and Earth. Research of the past generation has ...

... proportional size, it would fill the Pacific Ocean basin." "Another surprising finding is that such a large crater, relative to Vesta's size, might have been expected to cause more damage to the rest of the minor planet." This is becoming a familiar refrain. As well as Vesta, we now have Phobos, the tiny moon of Mars with a 7 mile circular crater on one end of its 17 mile long body (it's peanut shaped) and Mimas, the moon of Saturn, with its 80 mile diameter circular crater on a 240 mile diameter body. I predict that the crater on Vesta, when photographed more closely, will be circular also. All ...
169. Megalithic Lunar Observatories -- A Critique [Journals] [Kronos]
... many of these stone rings and circles were associated with other stones or prominent natural features to indicate directions on the ground which would have been astronomically significant to Megalithic man. According to Thom, some of these directions pointed to the rising or setting Sun at the solstices or equinoxes, while others pointed to the rising or setting positions of the Moon at either the major or minor standstills. In his Megalithic Sites in Britain, Thom considered that Megalithic man was only capable of approximately delineating these limiting positions of the Moon. Later, however, in a protracted article(1 ) and in a following book,(2 ) he claimed that Megalithic man was capable of detecting the ...
170. Confirmation of Dr Velikovsky's Theories Regarding Electromagnetic and Electrostatic Forces in Celestial Mechanics [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 3 No 3 (Jan 1981) Home | Issue Contents Confirmation of Dr Velikovsky's Theories Regarding Electromagnetic and Electrostatic Forces in Celestial Mechanics Ian C. Johnson 1. "Cometary Collisions on the Moon and Mercury" by P.H . Schultz & L.J . Srnka in NATURE, 6/3 /80, p.22-6. This article was summarised in WORKSHOP 2:4 , p.9 , but I wish to present a different gloss. Schultz & Srnka refer to enigmatic bright and dark swirls which cross portions of the lunar farside, and link them to lunar regions containing strong magnetic anomalies. These swirls are thought to be ...
