61. The Myth of Osiris (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... From: Moons, Myths and Man by H. S. Bellamy CD Rom Home Last | Contents | Next 28 The Myth of Osiris A Tale of the Capture of Luna Osiris was the offspring of a liaison of the Earth-god Seb with the Night-Sky-goddess Nut, the spouse of the Sun-god Ra. In a terrible rage at his wife's unfaithfulness, Ra swore that she should not be delivered of the child on any of the 360 days of his year. As her time was up, this curse might have caused her considerable difficulties had not Thoth, the god of science and mathematics, another friend of Nut's, succeeded, by a ruse, in procuring for her a ...
62. The Nature and Origin of Comets and the Evolution of Celestial Bodies (Part II) [Journals] [Kronos]
... orbit of Pluto. Cometary discharges could also occur between the Sun and ionized matter of the zodiacal disc which rings the Sun. The major theoretical result was that charged comet nuclei are attracting the dust and gases in the comet tail and are not melting away as proposed in the IBCM. That is, comets are evolving into the planets, moons, and asteroids of our solar system. Part I further extended concepts introduced in an earlier paper(1 ) that Saturn and its ring system (and Jupiter to a lesser extent) exhibit star-like properties including electrical discharges between its rings and in its atmosphere. The star-like properties are necessarily a result of localized fusion reactions in the gas ...

64. Saturn Moon Mystery Continues [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1996:2 (Feb 1997) Home | Issue Contents Newsgroups: sci.astro Subject: Saturn Moon Mystery Continues From: Ron Baalke, firstname.lastname@example.org Date: 5 Oct 1995 20:59 Al Oct 5, 1995. Press Release No.: STScI-PR95-42 Saturn Moon Mystery Continues: Could Hubble Have Discovered Shattered Satellites? Nasa's Hubble space telescope may have discovered several orbiting clumps of icy rubble that could be the remnants of recently shattered moonlets orbiting near the outer edge of Saturn's ring system. Astronomers say this could represent the discovery of a new class of ephemeral, transitional object in the solar system which provides new clues ...
65. Stonehenge: What Was It? [Journals] [Horus]
... . 2 (Summer 1985) Home | Issue Contents Stonehenge: What Was It?by Alban Wall There is a celestial phenomenon that numerous ancient civilizations, in their early study of the heavens, soon discovered and put to use in helping to regulate their civil and religious affairs. Simply stated it is this: "The phases of the Moon exactly repeat themselves on the same days of the year every nineteen years, but not in any year in between." Since early times, and even in some cultures today, the waxing and waning of the Moon has been the astronomical basis of the month. The Moon circles the Earth once in a fraction over 29.5 ...
66. The Cause of Gravitation [Books]
... Pole. Further, if the assumed attraction of the sun existed, then its force-combined with the existing centrifugal force of earth materials-would show less weight at noon, with the sun overhead, and a greater weight at midnight for any test piece. Yet no decreases in weights of materials due to the assumed "pull" of either sun or moon, have ever been disclosed to exist. The facts once more indicate that no attraction exists between objects on earth and the sun or moon. The currently prevailing explanation of why the heavenly bodies do not coalesce, due to the heretofore assumed mutual attraction of masses, is that the "original forces" act to keep the celestial bodies ...
67. Velikovsky's Sources Volume One [Books]
... have no idea. I would suggest that they were well established literary traditions well before the time the Book of Exodus was written. The thunder and lightning that accompany God's manifestations (eg.Ex.19:16) are again, I would suggest, not catastrophic records but literary conventions, in much the same vein as the full moon and the hooting owl that accompany the onset of any decent ghost story. Indeed, Peake's Commentary states that "the cloud was His chariot, the lightning His dazzling robe, and the thunder His mighty voice," (Incidentally, Peake suggests that the symbolism of the pillar of cloud & fire may be related to the smoke and ...
... , in ancient Rome and modern Varanes, mean only the Powers of Nature, and principally those of the SUN, expressed in a variety of ways, and by a multitude of fanciful names.2 The doctrine of the RECIPROCAL PRINCIPLES of NATURE, designated as active and passive, male and female, and often symbolized as the Sun and Moon, or the Sun and the Earth, was distinctly recognised in the mythological systems of America. Before proceeding to the proof of this assertion, it will be well to notice the rationale of this doctrine, and some of the more striking forms which, in the developoment of human ideas, it has assumed, for it may safely ...

... these genetically variable crops would not be affected drastically by differences of weeks in the chosen date. The feel' of the weather would be good enough, and, indeed, for some crops a farmer's judgement that this was a mild year or a frosty one would be a better guide than a priest's proclamation of an equinox or a new moon. The unplanned nature of their agriculture is well demonstrated by the deserts which now occupy much of the fertile crescent'. In Egypt, matters were slightly different. The annual Nile inundation was the key. But consider: if the flood came on a really regular basis, there would be no need for the astronomers' intervention. ...
70. Earth's Twin Moons [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:1 (Nov 1997) Home | Issue Contents News Flash Earth's Twin Moons Tania ta Maria For some years now a catastrophic theory of the Moon's formation has been floating around. According to this one, an unidentified Mars-sized object plowed into the Earth when it was still young. Besides being responsible for the Earth's 23-deg tilt, which produces our seasons, the impact also tore a sizable chunk from our world, which chunk then fell into orbit around our planet before it turned into the Moon. While this hypothesis appealed to a few astronomers, others maintained that such a colossal collision would have melted most of our planet. Those in favor nevertheless pointed ...
