201. On the Circularization of the Orbit of Venus [Kronos $]
... massive than its terrestrial counterpart, is nevertheless just a thin shell surrounding the planet, compressed by gravity to a thickness of less than two percent of the planet's radius. And yet, some thirty-five centuries ago, the Exodus encounter brought down meteorites, petroleum, and red dust to the Earth from the extended atmosphere of Venus. Physical considerations of this encounter and other types of evidence presented by Velikovsky indicate that the atmosphere and tail of Venus must have been extended indeed. How could this extended atmosphere avoid being compressed by gravity? ... another problem, which may seem even worse: existing nova theory says that the primary of a nova binary is always a white dwarf. A white dwarf is a star with a mass comparable to that of the Sun, but a diameter comparable to that of a planet. This description does not fit the Sun very well. However, Warner(13) has pointed out that the evidence for a white dwarf may be a bit shaky: the original evidence must be "relegated", but in the meantime new findings have ...

... 5 that the "Trojans of whom Homer sings" occupied a stratum of debris "from 7 to 10 meters, or 23 to 33 feet, below the surface. This Trojan stratum, which, without exception, bears marks of great heat, consists mainly of red ashes of wood, which rise from 5 to 10 feet above the Great Tower of Ilium, and the great enclosing Wall, the construction of which Homer ascribes to Poseidon and Apollo; and they show that the town was destroyed by a fearful conflagration." ... clay in the ruins? Is this the same "red" that Schliemann reports as "the red ashes of Trojan wood?" For that matter, is it part of the omnipresent red dust that Velikovsky pursues through early references from numerous cultures in connection with the planet Venus [32? At this stage of research, one craves evidence that the rude Achaeans were quite stupid but were geniuses at setting great fires from above. Or that all excavators exaggerated in their reports. Barring these explanations, the evidence speaks, or rather ...

... tempted to say, "Good grief! What a bunch of bird-brains." And yet, how is what the seagulls are doing different from what scientists do? They're applying what they know to a situation that is unfamiliar. A crab is small and hard and red. It breaks open into something tasty when they drop it. Maybe the small, hard, red apple will, too. People do the same when they apply the concepts they are familiar with to the objects beyond their reach. Thus they once thought of ... STREAMERS exploding into light as the Sun set and the surrounding sky darkened, and 3) the appearance of a darker or reddish smaller body in front of (i.e., visually inside) the sphere of Venus, this body being identifiable through comparative analysis as the planet Mars, the archetypal warrior-hero. The primary mythical forms (among a larger list of secondary symbols) are: 1) Great Star, Great Comet 2) Long-haired, fiery-haired goddess 3) Radiant heart, soul, or "life" of the primeval sun ...

205. Science Frontiers 1977-1978 [Catastrophism Geology $]
... File No. 65-58300, the phenomenon was concentrated over top secret facilities in the American southwest, including Los Alamos, New Mexico. Many sightings were made by highly creditable witnesses. Briefly, the "fireballs" were a brilliant green, sometimes beginning and ending with red or orange flashes. The objects travelled mainly on an east-west line at an average speed of 27,000 miles per hour. They seemed to pass over in level flight at altitudes of six to ten miles. On two occasions vertical changes of course were noted ... notes that pandernics and plagues have generally appeared very suddenly and unexpectedly, sweeping the globe with hard-to-explain swiftness. Noting in passing that comets have always been considered bad omens, he postulates that cometary matter may actually contain bacteria and viruses that infect the earth's populace as the planet passes through cometary tails. Recent spectroscopic studies of interstellar matter and comets themselves indicate a richness of life-associated compounds that infers that outer space might well be the breeding ground of simple life. The authors review some of the strange history of epidemic diseases and wonder if ...

The plasma that is "drifting," is that actually coming from the day side of the planet in some kind of solar-flare-like arc to the night side? And, is that the source of the high velocity electrons that are bombarding the night side? Barry. Wal answers: As far as I remember, the argument was that most of the electrons would ...

... of Science and Free Speech," The National Geographic Magazine (March, 1944), p. 327. 286. Taiko-mol's identification as Saturn is based on the god's creative attributes as compared with those of other Saturnian deities. 287. J. Bierhorst, The Red Swan (N.Y., 1976), p. 40. 288. D. Cardona, "Other Worlds, Other Collisions," read at the seminar "Velikovsky and Secular Catastrophism," held at San Jose, California, Aug. 30, 1980 ... the various sources concerning the destruction of the Cities of the Plain that explicitly points to a planetary cause for the catastrophe. Velikovsky's contention would not even merit serious consideration were it not for the fact that legend persists in linking Abram's early life with certain irregularities of the planet Jupiter. Velikovsky was of the opinion that the thunderbolt which was said to have destroyed the Cities came from Jupiter. Concerning this incident, Tacitus wrote: "I am ready to allow, on the one hand, that cities, once famous, may have ...

... other stars in the East. Provided the East and West relationship was correct for their purpose, the North and South relationship may not have seemed to be very important. John D. Weir, Edinburgh Tidal Wave? Recently I had the pleasure of sailing through the Red Sea, the Gulf of Suez and the Suez Canal and could not but speculate about the Israelite Exodus from Egypt as we passed Sinai. Was there really some event, all those years ago, that could loosely be described as a parting of the waters or ... charge leaked away, crossing the orbits of Mars and Earth, causing the observed electrical and tidal disturbances. When Cosbod is fully discharged its orbit would be stable and I originally claimed that this gave a scientific explanation of the creation of Venus as a young, hot planet. However, further computer studies showed that the stable orbit of Cosbod would most likely be much more elliptical than the present orbit of Venus and that it would take thousands of years before it could become near-circular. This tends to support the conventional view that Venus ...
209. Enheduanna and the Goddess Inanna [SIS C&C Review $]
... blood all over the land. From ancient Egypt there is the text 'The Deliverance of Mankind from Destruction', which dates from about 2100 BC [21 and details the destructive activities of the cow goddess Hathor on her first visit to Earth (see below): red ochre, described as being 'like human blood', is spread all over the land to appease the goddess on her second visit [22. These two accounts in which 'blood' is found all over the land are particularly relevant because of their proximity in time ... Traditional scholarship sees Inanna as a composite figure representing many things- but she is not a discrete entity. This is not the place to dispute the conventional view: it is sufficient to note that one of the things Inanna represents is a celestial body, namely the planet Venus as Morning and Evening Star. The astral aspects of her character are thus beyond doubt. However, we have the observation made by Hallo and van Dijk that Inanna is both astral and terrestrial in character. How are we to explain this seemingly contradictory characterisation ...
210. The Origin of Velikovsky's Comet [Kronos $]
... Thus, the speaker in the Pyramid Texts declares: "My strength is the strength of Seth [Set.. .I am the flowing fluid. I have issued from the creating of the waters; I am a snake... I am this headband of red color which went forth from 'Iht the great [Akhet, a serpent god; I am this Eye of Horus."(32) According to the Egyptian texts, the serpent-dragon actually produced the sun-god's head-band or crown, the circle of the Aten. Indeed ... the celestial pole- loomed massively overhead, a central sun venerated by all mankind. Evidence is presented there for a Saturnian "polar configuration" as the source of early civilization's dominant symbols. One of the features of this Saturnian configuration was a giant band surrounding the planet. The Saturn Myth is a preface to a longer saga involving interplanetary upheavals. In that book, no reference is made to Venus, Mars, or Jupiter, even though these planets emerge as major figures in celestial events. What we aim to present here ...
