... of course, snow, sleet and hail would have fallen in certain northern latitudes. Thus, Velikovsky neither overlooked the fact that the seas boiled "here and there" as he reported from his ancient sources, nor did he overlook the evidence that life in the seas would have survived, especially in the seas of the higher latitudes and polar regions where there was an ice cap. The melting of the ice cap and melting of the numerous icebergs would also have to be taken into account. Solar activity and rotation Ralph E. Juergens dealt with the gravitational aspect of Sagan's argument stating, "Sagan stated that the most serious objection to Velikovsky's conclusion that the Earth's rotation was ...

... , along with other animal species, became extinct at the end of the geological division known as the Pleistocene.(6 ) The locality of their deep-frozen corpses is, of course, the permafrost zone of the present Arctic Circle.(7 ) In addressing the problem of the frozen mammoths, it may be considered legitimate to include other polar regions and other species and, indeed, frozen specimens other than Mammuthus primigenius as well as, perhaps, skeletal evidence of proven contemporaneity. It is not permissible, however, to include other animal and plant remains which earlier writers have, casually and erroneously, associated with the mammoth.(8 ) TO CHILL A MAMMOTH Ellenberger repeats ...

114. The Astronomical Theory Of Climatic Changes [Books]
... planet makes with the ecliptic (orbital plane) an angle of 23 27' 8", called the obliquity of the ecliptic. This angle plays a great role in climatology and is the main source of the seasonal variation in solar radiation received by any post on the Earth. A. If the obliquity of the ecliptic is nil (polar axis perpendicular to the plane of the orbit), the Sun's rays reach the Earth perpendicularly to the polar axis of rotation (see fig.9 (a )) . The circle of illumination (great circle that divides the illuminated part from the dark part of the Earth) passes through the two poles. Theoretically, the Earth's ...
115. Morning Star II [Journals] [Aeon]
... . Any "stars" seen to rotate around Saturn would therefore have been spoken of as being circumpolar. I should, however, add that Saturn's circumpolar "stars" were not stars in the true sense of the word but a reference to the Saturnian satellites that were seen revolving around the planet in primeval times. The connection with the polar Saturn is also indicated in Helel's boast that he will "sit on the mount of assembly (or congregation) in the recesses of the north," a clear indication of Saturn's north polar mountain or axis mundi. It was also said of Helel that he would "ascend above the heights of the'"āb," a ...

... but is expressed in hundreds of different ways in hundreds of different stories told over the world. In part III, Cardona explores the nature of this northern configuration from both a mythical and physical perspective: DWARDU CARDONA: But what of the demands which this postulate raises? Can they, too, be met? The postulate concerning the former polar station of the planet Saturn raises more than one demand, but I will only touch upon one-and it will serve to show that physical requirements, as well as those which the mytho-historical record itself answers, can be met. THE LITHIC BULGE We all know how terrestrial tides are raised; they are caused by the attraction of the Sun ...
117. Saturn's Sacred Mountain [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... only disagreed with both of us but actually disclaimed any connection with our work. The only datum in the above model that Velikovsky adhered to, and which in in fact originated with him, was that Saturn turned "nova" at the time of the Deluge. [3 ] That the planet was in a fixed position in Earth's north polar sky and that Jupiter was hidden behind it was something he entirely disbelieved. Saturn's age-long prehistoric immobility in Earth's northern sky, as reconstructed from the content of ancient universal lore, is a postulate that is common to both Talbott's model and mine. This discovery, however, had been published earlier by Giorgio de Santillana and Hertha von Dechend ...
118. Pole-Shift [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... during that period. The last such change came at the end of the last ice age, about ten thousand years ago. A very simplified explanation, using the large amount of evidence Hapgood presented, can be made. The earth is a round ball spinning in space. As it rotates it also "wobbles." As the south polar ice mass grows, it becomes heavier and heavier. As the ice increases in weight its massive accumulation aggravates the imbalance in the earth's wobble. The ice is not equally distributed around the pole; see Figure 1. Three-fourths of the polar ice mass is considerably to one side of the earth's axis, which produces the same wobbling effect ...

... explained in the "Philolaos" paper. It is a pity that some readers have had so much difficulty getting these matters straight. Whether the "Philolaos" model is correct or not, the details and features of that model should at least be reported accurately. * * * Roger Ashton has recently published an article entitled "The Unworkable Polar Saturn."(4 ) In his first paragraph, he declares that: .. .such writers as David N. Talbott, Dwardu Cardona and others have produced several divergent versions of planetarily reconstructed myth in which Saturn is situated at the Earth's north celestial pole. One would presume that this article is going to be a critique ...
120. Geogullibility And Geomagnetic Reversals [Journals] [Kronos]
... : Kronos Vol. III No. 4 (Summer 1978) Home | Issue Contents Geogullibility And Geomagnetic Reversals Ralph E. Juergens There was a time when the earth's magnetic field was thought to be such a permanent feature that compass needles would always point north. It was a time when geologians could scoff at Velikovsky's citation of evidence that the polarity of the field was reversed in historical times. But today things are different. Earth science has leapfrogged past Velikovsky to a position from which it can patronize him as a victim of overly conservative thinking.(1 ) We are now assured that reversals of the earth's magnetic field were so frequent in the past that hundreds of them are ...
