381. Thoth Vol II, No. 8: May 15, 1998 [Journals] [Thoth]
... And there's the big questions of cultural prejudices, as expressed in a post from D E Davis: "There will be an agenda behind any set of ideas you will come across. "Deconstructing through such author power games as Zionism or homophobia is of paramount importance. When approaching the mythologies of ancient cultures, which provide invaluable information about physical events of the past, the need to understand the cultural context of their production is heightened even more." Once we become aware of the catastrophic etiology of cultural compulsions we are free to walk away from them. It's never easy. There are survival traits woven into the fabric of the compulsions. Simply dropping them could prove suicidal ...

... levels in the tropical areas would have sharply risen. The temperate areas would have suffered far less. Ellenberger says that if such changes occurred, "records of and evidence for them ought to be obvious and plentiful". But how much in the way of "records" and "evidence" should one expect? Few have sought for physical evidence, but a considerable amount of such evidence does already- exist and has been reported, in Earth in Upheaval and elsewhere. As far as actual records are concerned, there would not be much from the polar regions anyway, if they were sparsely populated, and there might be no eyewitness reports at all from the tropical regions ...

383. The Cloud of Jehovah [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Issue Contents INTERACTION The Cloud of Jehovah James F. Strickling Glow discharges of various kinds have long been of interest to man, no doubt evoking a great deal of wonder in times past. The forms of discharge are so varied that it has only been during the present century that they have been shown to be different aspects of the same physical phenomenon: in every form, the glow discharge is a manifestation of the conduction of electricity through gases. One form occurring in nature is the faint glow known as St. Elmo's fire, seen at the top of ships' masts at night when thunderclouds are near; other natural forms are seen from sharp Alpine peaks and even the ...

... they know that the savages used two, and never three, fire sticks. Burnouf continues his discussion of myths concerning the origin of fire: According to Hymnes, the discoverer of fire was Atharan, whose name signifies fire, but Bhrigon it was who made the sacred fire, producing resplendent flames on the earthen altar. In theory of physics, Agni, who was the fire residing within the "onction," (! ) came from the milk of the cow, which, in its turn, came from the plants that had nourished her; and these plants in their turn grew by receiving and appropriating the heat or fire of the sun. Therefore, the virtue ...

MacClean and Officer believe massive volcanism is a more likely cause of the extinction. Alvarez threatened to wreck MacClean's career and orchestrated a campaign to discredit him. Details are no doubt in Officer's book (see Bookshelf).

... toward his work by the scientific and scholarly communities. The occasion was a "Velikovsky Symposium" --a gathering of over 50 "invited scholars" and 200 observers, co-sponsored by Lewis and Clark College and the Student Academic Freedom Forum (publishers of Pensée). The conclave sought to probe the implications of Velikovsky's radical deviation from accepted views in physics, astronomy, geology, history, and mythology. Observing in his opening remarks that few other men had made such "giant leaps, from the proven to the provable to the probable," Lewis and Clark's President John Howard defined the symposium's objective by challenging those present to grapple with the hard evidences bearing on Velikovksy's views. For ...

387. The Trouble With Aztex [Journals] [Kronos]
... published- and this goes for my denials as well as my assertions. In the meantime, I hope to have gone some distance in clarifying the "mystery" of Saturn's child in the serialization that was spawned by the response to the paper mentioned above.(5 ) II The weighing of a problem "in light of the immense physical difficulties [it might] present" is a rather pessimistic way of approaching a solution. This applies to possible terrestrial inversions as to everything else. Science once heeded similar warnings in relation to the "immense physical difficulties" thought to be inherent in Alfred Wegener's Continental Drift Theory. Condemned in 1950,(6 ) this theory did ...

... "created" by the "passing by" of the massive body.(1 ) Most of the electricity generated and polar reversals however, may in time be attributed to just the fact of one body passing close by another. Ronald Hatch, a celestial physicist, will soon publish a treatise on the subject of gravity and relativity in physics which has been some ten years in the writing. He is expanding upon the commonly assumed fact that Maxwell's "potential" equations are wrong. Usually assumed to be irrelevant, some experimenters have noted results showing these potential equations to be quite germane and their accuracy of some real import. Hatch believes they can be modified to correctly explain ...

389. Sun 13 July Abstracts [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... planetary close encounters include a significant proportion of sungrazers. Continuously near the ecliptic such bodies are also especially prone to orbital energy loss thereby enhancing the prograde cometary population under Jovian control. Such control extends to "Jupiter avoiding" resonances and an expectation on this account of tidally weakened, giant sungrazers which remain long enough in cis-Jovian space to be physically destroyed. We therefore expect particularly massive disintegration streams containing a high proportion of sub-kilometre meteoroids such as are required to explain the zodiacal cloud and nodal intersection with the terrestrial orbit arising in near-contemporary pairs such as are bound to impose a cyclic bombardment and global cooling of the Earth. Thus individual impactors produced this way are expected to produce mini-ice ...

... the original, concrete images embedded in myth and symbol, I have sought to define celestial forms once seen in the sky. From recurring mythical and artistic renderings of these forms, together with recurring planetary associations, one can deduce the placement of celestial bodies. If valid, this methodology should eventually provide many clues to our understanding of the physical forces required. Our reasoning, in other words, must proceed from the fullest possible consideration of historical data. Which is to say, there is little value in contriving abstract physical models, then attempting to project these models onto the ancient experience. Mere physical theory allows for limitless possibilities. Hence, it is not significant that a ...
