51. Anomalous Occurrence of Crocodilia in Eocene Polar Forests Part Two [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1993 (Vol XV) Home | Issue Contents Anomalous Occurrence of Crocodilia in Eocene Polar Forests Part Two by Ian C. Johnson Born in 1950 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Mr Johnson graduated in 1976 from Carleton University, Ottawa, with an honours degree in Political Science. Since graduation he has worked at the National Energy Board, a regulatory body of the Government of Canada. A professional economist since 1982, most of his work has centred around oil and gas supply economics. He attended the McMaster three day symposium on Velikovsky in 1974 and has written for Chiron, SIS Workshop, CSIS Newsletter, Aeon and Catastrophism and Ancient History ...
52. The Ring of Truth by Isaac Vail [Books]
... the greatest force would drive them. As high as the atmosphere would be, driven by the force of heat expulsion, the region of the equator would extend even higher because of the centrifugal force acting on the mass. Such a mass containing this energy of rapid rotation, very little of the Earth's original exhalations would be left over the polar regions. Thus in the formative period of rings there was a general tendency of all vapors to pass from the polar points toward the equator. When then the Earth cooled down and the vapors began to return to the surface, this motion was reversed. The remaining vapor would begin to return first at the poles. With the absence ...
53. Plasma Phenomenon in the Polar Configuration [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2001:2 (Sep 2001) Home | Issue Contents Plasma Phenomenon in the Polar Configuration DAVE TALBOTT continues his talk, this time on plasma phenomena in the Polar Configuration. But he began by talking about the Egyptian ostrich feather motif, and how it could have derived from the White Crown; this is predicted from an electrical perspective and the Polar Configuration. The colinear polar configuration has an analogue in the universe, that of Herbig-Haro objects. Dave went on to talk about the "whirling Venus", which is illustrated in ancient imagery with tentacles, Medusa's hair, and pondered whether there was a connection between tendrils/tentacles. Dave speculated ...
54. The Saturn Theory [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the neighbouring planets only recently settled into their current orbits, the Earth formerly being involved in a unique planetary configuration together with Saturn, Venus and Mars. As the terrestrial sky watcher looked upwards, he saw a spectacular and awe-inspiring apparition dominating the celestial landscape. At the heart of heaven the massive gas giant Saturn appeared fixed atop the North polar axis, with Venus and Mars set in its centre like two concentric orbs (see fig. 1, where Venus is the second smallest orb and Mars is the smallest orb). The theory holds that the origin of ancient myth and religion - indeed the origin of the primary institutions of civilisation itself - is inextricably linked to the ...
55. On the Convection of Electric Charge by the Rotating Earth [Journals] [Kronos]
... actively imposed on our planet by the demands of an electrified cosmic environment. As we shall see, these premises suggest mutually consistent solutions to several problems in geophysics in addition to those pointed out by Velikovsky. As complementary assumptions, therefore, they show promise as the basis for a wide ranging geophysical working hypothesis. Electric Convection and the Earth's Polar Moment of Inertia Several years ago, Sagan stated that the most serious objection to Velikovsky's conclusion that the Earth's rotation was slowed on several occasions during the catastrophes of the second and first millennia has to do with correcting the effect: "How does the Earth get started up again, rotating at approximately the same rate of spin? The ...
56. Ashton's Bedrock of Myth (Forum) [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon VI:6 (Dec 2001) Home | Issue Contents Forum Ashton's Bedrock of Myth An aspect of the Polar Configuration according to Ashton C. Leroy Ellenberger From St. Louis, Missouri, writes: An aspect of the Polar Configuration according to Ashton Most surviving Velikovskians now see Worlds in Collision and Ages in Chaos as seriously flawed, if not completely wrong. Many, instead, propose that the real interplanetary catastrophes occurred earlier than Velikovsky thought. Adopting the "Saturn theory," inspired by an unpublished Velikovsky manuscript alluding to the ancient Sun-Saturn polarity,  they claim that, during the "Golden Age" ruled by Saturn/Kronos, Earth ...
57. Gyroscopic Precession and Celestial Axis Displacement [Journals] [Pensee]
... analyst with a background in communications engineering and large-scale computer applications. Many readers of Velikovsky's writings and associated papers perhaps find it very difficult to accept the historical reports of prolonged periods of daylight or darkness, as if "the sun stood still," or as if temporary but very severe perturbations occurred in the rotation of the earth about its polar axis. One would think intuitively at first glance, that such occurrences would require impossibly large angular decelerating and accelerating forces, which in turn would so totally disrupt the earth's crust as to make impossible any human survival. Sudden and major displacements in the geographical position of the earth's polar axis would most likely require such unthinkable circumstances. Those ...
58. Thundergods and Thunderbolts [Journals] [Aeon]
... form of filaments. The magnetic fields cause them to twist into "ropes". Thornhill's theory, heavily influenced by the views of Ralph Juergens and Immanuel Velikovsky, has profound ramifications for our understanding of the recent history of the Solar System. It also offers important insights for understanding the physico-dynamical conditions that prevailed during the time of the Saturnian polar configuration. In Thornhill's view, the polar configuration consisted of a number of planets moving together in a plasma sheath, [2 ] the latter providing a balancing electrical force that acted with gravity to keep the planets in alignment but also to buffer the planets against catastrophic collision. A distinguishing characteristic of plasmas is the generation of Birkeland currents ...
59. The Ivory Islands. Ch.1 In the North (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... © 1955 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Ivory Islands The arctic coast of Siberia is cold, bleak, in-hospitable. The sea is passable for ships manoeuvring between floating ice for two months of the year; from September to the middle of July the ocean north of Siberia is fettered, an unbroken desert of ice. Polar winds sweep over the frozen tundras of Siberia, where no tree grows and the soil is never tilled. In his exploratory voyage on the ship Vega in 1878, Nils Adolf Erik Nordenskj÷ld, the first to traverse this northern seaway from one end to the other, travelled for weeks along the coast from Novaya Zemlya to Cape Shelagskoi ( ...
60. CLASHING MAGNETIC FIELDS [Journals] [Aeon]
... have been very close and their cycle so regular that the same side of Earth was presented to the passing planet in alternating passes. The smaller planet, 11% of Earth's mass, deeply invaded Earth's gravitational field. Simultaneously the close encounters featured a sudden, intense and swift distortion of the two planets' magnetic fields. Additional recharging and polarity reversals were "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 ...
