... ) and in the mythology of the world we find significant references or allusions. A Jewish myth tells that when Kenanilh was king in the world a third of the Earth was inundated, and that in the days of Enos the same thing had happened. Other peoples are more explicit still, the Tupi Indians of Brazil tell that formerly the Moon (i .e . the cosmic body that is now the Moon: the planet Luna is meant) used to fall' periodically on the Earth causing much devastation. The Mayas record that once a certain country was lost when a planet brushed close by the Earth. The ancient Mexicans considered that there was a danger of the Earth ...

... . 151-4 Saturn's Braided F-ring'These two reports, complete with diagrams, tell of the theoretical work being done in explanation of the bizarre shaped F-ring of Saturn, which has a "braided" appearance. S. F. Dermott of Cornell University, writing for NATURE suggests that the ring is produced by resonance effects with the two small moons that orbit on either side of the ring, producing wave effects in the ring particles and the appearance of clumping. His theory requires that the larger of the two shepherding particles should be the outer one: however, as the NEW SCIENTIST piece points out, the data so far from Voyager suggests the two moons are of similar sizes ...

233. Forum [Journals] [Aeon]
... . I believe Mr. Thornhill is suggesting that friction in the gaseous layers should show slower rotation rates for the gaseous exterior. Mathematical studies of the damping effects of gaseous friction are needed to promote this objection. And a time frame for the damping expected should be established. Mr. Thornhill also objects to Patten and Windsor's statement that our Moon has no rotation. The Moon's rotation is such that one face is frozen toward Earth. The Moon has no independent rotation. The Moon's center of gravity is offset from the center of its external sphere- or a "blob" on the Moon's near face, "unseen" from Earth, allows Earth's gravity to hold this position ...

... planets and what they were like. Copernicus, died just after he wrote his Revolution of the Planets and along came a man named Galileo, who used the telescope to look at the planets and suddenly, as with the Space Age, there was all kinds of new evidence. The evidence showed that Venus went through phases as did the Moon, and so did Mercury. The Moon had mountains on it, and it was, therefore, not perfect in form as the scholars claimed. The Sun had spots on its surface; it too wasn't perfect. Jupiter had four little worlds going around it, the Earth, Venus and Mercury around the Sun and four worlds were ...

... From: The Disastrous Love Affair of Moon and Mars, by Alfred De Grazia Home | Issue Contents CHAPTER TEN He Who Shines by Day Not satisfied with setting up the production of the Love Affair, Athena, the virtuoso of Olympia, must play a leading role in it. Will it be masculine? Athena has been known to play such roles. Actually, she ends the Odyssey playing the male role of Mentor, Counselor of State. By now we know that gods can readily become transvestites. Hercules, for all his impressive masculinity, dresses and behaves like a woman when he lives in the court of Omphale, Queen of Libya. More strikingly there is the ...

... . 4) Clearly, we have here something on the order of a formal debate between authoritative exponents of theses in diametric opposition, each side proclaiming that its presentation is a conclusive demonstration of the validity of its view as to our solar system's history in the second and first millennia BCE. Velikovsky maintains that before 687 BCE the Earth, Moon, Mars, and Venus moved on or bits different from their present orbits; that before the 15th Century Venus was a comet-like proto-planet with a highly elliptical orbit stretching nearly to that of Jupiter (from which planet it had been ejected a few millennia, at most, earlier); that in the 15th Century Venus twice came close ...

... belong to folklore. As early as pre-Christian times these legends were subjected to interpretation, many interpreters recognizing the symbolic character of mythology. With Macrobius in the fourth Christian century, there begins a tendency to see in many gods of Egyptian and Greek antiquity the personification of the sun. Macrobius compared Osiris to the sun, and Isis to the moon, disregarding the opinion of earlier au thors. He also interpreted Jupiter as the sun. As the role the planets played in the history of the world retreated ever further into oblivion, the interpretation of nature myths as referring to the sun or the moon became more and more widespread. In the nineteenth century it was the vogue to ...

... rock samples, measurements of every kind. The profiles of the planets were shifting with each subsequent revelation, and it was clear that many surprises on balance weighed in Velikovsky's favor. The unexpected, massive clouds of Venus, the planet's strange retrograde rotation and its surpassing temperature, the stark figures of the tortured planet Mars, verification by the Moon landings of radioactive hot spots and remanent magnetism predicted by Velikovsky; the growing recognition of electromagnetism in celestial mechanics-these and other discoveries may not have produced the pristine verdicts proclaimed by some of Velikovsky's loyalists, but were enough to encourage a number of scholars to take a new look at Velikovsky's thesis. In 1972 a group out of Portland, ...
