181. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... a theoretically unpredicted thin, cold layer in the upper reaches of the Sun's atmosphere. Tilting at planets Los Angeles Times 18.2 .93 and New Scientist 2.7 .94, p. 16 The Earth's climate is dependent upon its 23 degree axial tilt, which it is now suggested is stabilised by the gyroscopic effects of the Moon. Without this Earth would probably tilt far more. It is also suggested Mars still has a chaotic tilt because its two very small moons are not sufficient to stabilise it and, wait for it, Venus has a retrograde spin because, having no moon to stabilise it, it tilted a full 180 degrees. The fact that Uranus ...
182. Evidence for the Extreme Youth of Venus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... for the Extreme Youth of Venus Wal Thornhill "The purpose of the Universe is the perpetual astonishment of mankind." - Arthur C. Clarke "Person who say it cannot be done should not interrupt person doing it." - spurious Chinese proverb Introduction The planet Venus is the brightest object in the sky - after the Sun and the Moon. Astronomers repeatedly refer to it as Earth's twin' [1 ]. They should not - for twins are always born close together in time and there is no evidence to support their assumption that the two planets are of the same age. I will show instead that Venus has the hallmarks of a recent genesis. What do I ...

184. Morning Star II [Journals] [Aeon]
... of Shahar We have seen the word "shahar" translated as "morning and/or dawn" but, to say the least, the fact is that this word is rather an ambiguous one. To begin with, Shahar (sometimes rendered Sahar) was also the name of the Aramaic moon-god. (26) In Arabic, the Moon is more popularly known as ?amar. (27) Yet, even today, the Arabic word for "month" is "shahr." (28) The question to ask here is: Since the association of Shahar with Dawn is well founded, why was the name of Dawn also applied to the Moon? The Moon ...
185. The Calendar [Journals] [Aeon]
... these days were considered unlucky. When conventional historians or astronomers write about the calendar situations in ancient times they invariably denigrate the observational and mathematical skills of whatever nation is under scrutiny. An excellent opening example comes from a copy of a journal article: "The first year of three hundred and sixty days, regulated by the revolutions of the moon, did not long meet the needs of the Egyptian people; it did not correspond with the length of the solar year, for it fell short of it by five and a quarter days, and this deficit, accumulating from twelvemonth to twelvemonth, caused such a serious difference between the calendar reckoning and the natural seasons, that it ...
186. Sun, Moon, and Sothis [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1999:2 (Oct 1999) Home | Issue Contents Sun, Moon, and Sothis http://www.knowledge.co.uk/sun-moon/Sun, Moon, and Sothis: A Study of Calendars and Calendar Reforms in Ancient Egypt. A book by Lynn E. Rose. The history, of calendars is far from cut-and-dried. Almost every topic that this book addresses has long been the subject of heated controversy. Rose sees Hellenistic and Roman Egypt as of unparalleled importance in the history of calendar development. Even the Julian calendar had its origins in Hellenistic Egypt. Very likely, the Julian calendar itself was Sothic- that ...
187. Darkness Over Sinai (Where was Moses when the light went out?) [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... cause is given for these overcast conditions. This forty year-long obscuration is considered by Velikovsky as being due to multiple prolonged volcanic eruptions and the gaseous tail of a great cinder-trailing comet [1 ]. The degree of darkness' is not known, but it is common knowledge that cloud cover during normal storm conditions makes observations of the Sun, Moon and stars impossible. As all record of the passage of time has to be based on observation of these bodies, the question arises as to just how this was done in darkness. How did the Israelites know they were forty years in the desert? How did Moses know he was a year older? How long were these years ...

... attentive reading, a wider circulation, or more diligent investigation than the Old Testament. R. H. PFEIFFER, Introduction to the Old Testament PART I Venus CHAPTER 1 The Most Incredible Story THE MOST incredible story of miracles is told about Joshua ben Nun, who, when pursuing the Canaanite kings at Beth-horon, implored the sun and the moon to stand still. "And he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon. And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher ...

... developing a net negative electrical charge. The comet nucleus attracts quantities of dust and ions, forming the visible comet tail. The physics of these processes and the myriad of observed cometary phenomena are explained in Part I of this paper. 3) comet nuclei are captured by the solar system at random time intervals and evolve into the planets, moons and asteroids. Comets are accumulating matter and are not melting away as suggested by the ice ball comet model (IBCM). Only rarely do comet nuclei reach planetary dimensions. The members of the solar system have varying ages. 4) gravitational encounters with members of the solar system and the "tail drag' are the primary effects which ...

... be science. I trust that you can be dissuaded. On the same June 30, 1950, Professor Fred L. Whipple, who until shortly before had served as chief assistant to Shapley and later took over Shapley's post as director of the Harvard College Observatory, wrote to the Blakiston Company in Philadelphia, the publisher of his Earth, Moon, and Planets. He said he had heard that Doubleday and Company "had taken over the golden chestnut' called Worlds in Collision." He explained the rage of the scientists against Macmillan for not having labeled the book as fiction: "Velikovsky differs from other crank scientific writers in that he has the art of making the impossible ...
