71. Magnetic Models of the Polar Configuration [Journals] [Aeon]
... single gas supergiant of the configuration, called Saturn. (See Fig. 1.) Present Jupiter and Saturn were formed by fragmentation of the supergiant at the close of the Golden Age. Electrostatic charges on planetary scales are eliminated; their mutual repulsions are replaced by those of magnetic fields. This replacement was necessary because 1) no known physical mechanism including magnetic fields could have conserved electric charges on any two planetary bodies sufficient to neutralize a detectable fraction of their mutual gravitational attraction, (2 ) and 2) a mechanism existed which could generate global magnetic fields on any two planets strong enough to repel each planet from the other against their mutual gravitational attraction. Fig. 1 ...
72. Heretics, Dogmatists and Science's Reception of New Ideas (Part 2) [Journals] [Kronos]
... . . for provocative ideas," those which appear "to cast doubt on ideas so generally accepted that they are tacitly assumed to be beyond question."(97) It will be interesting to see whether or not Schmidt repudiates the antipathy toward Velikovsky displayed by his two predecessors, Ben Bova and Joseph Campbell. THE SKEPTICAL INQUIRER and PHYSICS TODAY George O. Abell, UCLA astronomer, provides the last two U. S. reviews of SCV in 1978. The Spring/Summer Skeptical lnquirer(98) (formerly The Zetetic) contained a 3,300 word review which in being adapted for the August Physics Today,(99) was trimmed to 900 words. ...
73. The Celestial Ship of North Vol. I [Books]
... by divine power, came the Holy Light. Paracelsus called the Sidereal Light the Astral Light, the reflection of the Great Immaculate Mother, to whom the name of the Astral Light had been given[5 ];- a name never given to the father, or the fatherless son of the Immaculate Mother, who was placed on the physical plane, as the lowest of the manifestations. This Holy Spirit, the Great Mother[6 ], is symbolized by a great Tree whose branches spread over the entire world, and reach above the heavens. A more beautiful symbol can hardly be conceived. This Tree "has three roots, widely remote from each other. The ...
74. Oberg's Unscientific Method [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... of that work, while very incomplete, unfortunately often turns out to be factually incorrect and is based on carefully evading the evidence produced. His criticism tends to argue three points. They are: to attack the citations presented, while, at the same time, calling them "factually correct"; to attack the lack of mathematical and physical models, which he suggests proves my statements incorrect (he does so without presenting counter mathematics as support to attack the evidence and without presenting counter evidence); to use, repeatedly, the term pseudoscience or its derivatives over and over to cover up the inadequate nature of his own criticism (the final refuge of critics who cannot deal ...
75. BOOK REVIEWS [Journals] [Aeon]
... tempers his arguments with interesting and mind-boggling theoretical replacement models that are bound to stretch one's imagination if not credulity. After devoting nearly two dozen pages of Preface, Introduction, and Prologue in psychologically preparing the reader for the philosophical idea of his initial and primary "Meta Model" of the universe, he adroitly makes ready to introduce his own physical model as an adjunct and surrogate for space-time relativity. There is nothing shy about his approach, as his speculative clews thread a vast labyrinth of cosmological ground. The Meta Model, as defined by Van Flandern, is: A new cosmological model of the universe, arrived at deductively, in which the universe is infinite in five dimensions ...
76. Discussion on Wal Thornhill & Ev Cochrane's papers [Journals] [SIS Review]
... stringy things' are diagnostic of an electric current flowing from Venus into the solar environment. Q2. Asked about the relative sizes of Venus, Mars and Saturn in relation to the configuration, Wal said their present day relative sizes are reflected in the ancient imagery. However the apparent size of these objects might have been quite different from their physical size now, because a lot of what was seen in the Polar Configuration was due to electrical effects. The distances between the planets might therefore be different from estimates based on their present sizes. Ev Cochrane added that he didn't have to rig these results: if you place Saturn 1,000,000 miles away from Earth, ...
77. In Memoriam: Earl R. Milton [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:5 (Jan 2000) Home | Issue Contents In Memoriam: Earl R. Milton 1935-1999 Earl R. Milton, retired Professor of Physics and Astronomy, author of pioneering works in catastrophic quantavolutions, died on Saturday, November 6, 1999, at his home in Calgary, from a heart attack. Dr. Milton was born on February 26, 1935, in Montreal, Canada, and moved with his family to Alberta where he attended school. His academic degrees included the B.S ., M.S . (in Chemistry), and Ph.D . (in Chemical Physics), all from the University of Alberta. ...
78. The Cabots, the Lowells, and the Temperature of Venus [Journals] [Kronos]
... VELIKOVSKY The new Cornell University Press publication, Scientists Confront Velikovsky, is truly a valuable documentary on professional debunking, prestige coteries and expert gamesmanship. I am pleased that this book was published; the egocentricity is amusing, and the book makes explicit what is usually done by gossip designed to demolish careers. In the future, when advances in physical science disclose the mechanism of gravity, it will be instructive to reexamine the confident arguments of the current celebrities. The authors frame a superficially plausible but logically untenable hypothesis to explain "public interest" in Velikovsky's thesis, but avoid any serious discussion of professional interest. Donald Goldsmith inadvertently lets the cat out of the bag on page 22 ...
... . COMETS AND EFFECTS In Worlds in Collision, Velikovsky repeatedly refers to the "Comet Venus". The question is often asked: Why did Velikovsky call Venus a comet when it could not, by definition, be a comet. There are really two answers to this the short form and the long form. The long form involves the physical details of comets, but both answers are partially contained in the wording of the question itself man's "definition" of any phenomenon changes with his understanding of it. SHORT FORM The ancients did not have the same physical parameters for a comet that the moderns do. The word "comet" is derived from coma, a Greek word ...
80. Of Lessons, Legacies, and Litmus Tests: A Velikovsky Potpourri (Part One) [Journals] [Aeon]
... copy of Sachs' meticulously written script that Fate's Curtis G. Fuller had sent him in August 1965. Velikovsky had wanted to face Otto Neugebauer at Brown, but Sachs was enlisted when Neugebauer refused. My intention was to write an article about the debates at Brown. Velikovsky confronted a panel of four professors: Leon N. Cooper (physics), Bruno J. Giletti (geology), Charles Smiley (astronomy) and Abraham J. Sachs (history of mathematics), moderated by Henry Kucera (linguistics). In the event, Velikovsky debated the first three handily. He was stunned by Sachs whose address was both a rhetorical and substantive tour de force. Velikovsky's ...
