241. The Core Ejection Hypothesis [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... , mentioned earlier. When thermonuclear reactions take place in the interior of a star, the radiation pressure would be enormously increased, causing a correspondingly large increase in the extent of charging. Ellenberger's letter raises another objection to the ejection hypothesis if the site was the Great Red Spot of Jupiter, which is at 20S latitude. The ejected material may have emerged in a radial direction or at right angles to the spin axis or more probably at an angle between these two extreme positions. The material would be pulled back towards Jupiter and ... Home¦ Issue Contents FORUM The Core Ejection Hypothesis Bernard Newgrosh questions: According to Eric Crew's scenario outlined in Review X, the pressure ionisation process can lead to sufficient charge separation for a cosmic body ('Cosbod') to separate off from its parent, a gas giant planet (e.g. Jupiter). And since Wal Thornhill's elegant and ingenious thesis (also in Review X) is dependent on Eric's scenario, the correctness of the core ejection theory is a crucial issue, and one that should perhaps be debated thoroughly. C. ...
242. Equatorial Ridge of Iapetus [Thunderbolts Website]
... . The pronounced ridge around its equator has no place in the theory of gravitationally collapsing clouds. Both objects on the right are called“ concretions ”, and their origins are also puzzling. The sandstone concretion (upper image) was found on a farm near the Red River in Texas, and the hematite Moqui marble was found in Utah (lower image). Concretions occur in abundance on our planet and have produced many speculations about their origins. Certainly, in a gravity-only universe, there is no way to relate Iapetus to ... formative processes of concretions. In size, the two are separated by up to eight orders of magnitude. Gravity is strong enough to form a sphere from a collection of matter the size of Iapetus, but there ’ s a lower limit to gravity ’ s ability to produce spherical shapes. (Asteroids and comet nuclei are below that limit and therefore seldom spherical.) And while geologists have hypothesized, but never demonstrated, the processes that form concretions, they have never suggested that such processes could give birth to Iapetus! In ...

244. THE LATELY TORTURED EARTH: PART II: EXOTERRESTRIAL DROPS: 8.Falling Dust and Stone [Quantavolution Website]
... 5. Where does all the dust and stone rest today? It may be, as Donnelly said it, the main constituent of the so-called glacial till and in heaps called mistakenly glacial moraines. It may be in much of the clay of the Earth, in red loams of many countries, in abyssal clay of varied red and blue hue. The geologist Johan Kloosterman tells a story from Brazil: Early this year, Professor Doeko Goosen in Enschede, Holland, told me that there was something odd about the iron content of ... a splash from a cometary or meteoroid impact on the Earth. Moreover E. A. King: "the answer is now clear: tektites are produced from extraterrestrial rocks melted by hypervelocity impacts of large, extraterrestrial objects." [30 Erratic bits of an exploded planet from the Mars-Jupiter interregion often fall to Earth. Some of them may also be surviving, uncaptured, terrestrial material. The tektite fields on Earth could also be fall-back from the lunar eruption. Rittmann writes: "The chondrites (of meteoric falls) correspond genetically ...
245. A Hebrew Cosmogony [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... catastrophes are supposed to have occurred, and we live on ? the seventh earth ?. The later catastrophe of the time of Joshua is not reckoned. The catastrophes of the Exodus could be numbered as two: one in Egypt and one at the shores of the Red Sea. If they were thought of as one, the fifth catastrophe would have been either in the time of Abraham, when in an upheaval the earth swallowed the tetrapolis, or, more probably, in the time of Peleg, about whom it is said ... his dimensions were still great, and after each catastrophe the giants became increasingly rare. A myth of the Hebrews and of many other peoples knows to recite the story of some beings called ? the sons of God ? who came from the universe, or from another planet, and whose offspring with the women of the earth were giants. The sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. There were giants in the earth in those days; and ...
246. Letters [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... of implications rather exciting. It is quite widely accepted that the Exodus may have taken place in the confusion resulting from the Thera eruption. In fact, a tsunami resulting from the eruption could possibly explain the 'parting of the waters' that allowed the passage through the Red (or reed?) Sea. Nowhere, to my way of thinking, has all this been better argued than by Colin Wilson in The Exodus Enigma (Weidenfeld and Nicholson, 1985). He even argues (fairly convincingly) that the "Pillar of ... area by a large mass of liquid. Both types of action are compatible with Velikovsky's scenarios. Another line would be to balance the orbital energy equations by assuming that a body of planetary size was destroyed, or expelled from the Solar System in the process of inner planet encounters. Velikovsky rejected this as a solution; but astronomy and space exploration have provided so much evidence of nearly-destructive collisions as to make actual destructions statistically probable. Again, we could take the battle to the opposition by exposing the charlatanry rife in much of its ...

... differences between the sensory order of our minds and the physical or objective order as delineated by the various sciences. It's the distinction between things as related to us and things as related to each other. For example, the sensory order classifies colors in a circle: red shades into blue through the color purple. But in the physical order the colors are a short segment of a much longer linear continuum, and purple doesn't exist. Drawing on the largely physiological investigations of the previous century, Hayek notes that all nerve impulses are ... the world, Velikovsky described a series of catastrophes which he claimed occurred between 1500 BC and 686 BC, and he said that the agents of these disasters were planets moving on erratic courses. Most controversial of all was his claim that a few thousand years ago the planet Venus roamed the heavens as a terrifying "comet," whose catastrophic near collisions with the Earth brought an end to numerous civilizations. In his labors to comprehend early human history, Velikovsky commanded respect from many intellectual giants of the twentieth century: Sigmund Freud and ...

... Museum of Natural History was not privy to the future knowledge of plate tectonics and only paid lip-service to continental drift as it was then known. [12 Colbert himself had made important discoveries in New Mexico, finding an entire quarry of a Late Triassic species in a red mudstone formation.

An Extremely Brief History of Earth The geological and paleontological history of our planet is divided into three major eons and various subdivisions of eras, periods, and epochs. The oldest is the Archean (" ancient") Eon that began some 4.55 billion years ago (Gya), and is generally thought to have been inanimate and devoid ...

... times but, controversially, argues for their having been caused by "... the planet Venus having been ejected as an incandescent core, or part core, from Jupiter some thousands of years earlier". The letter is marred by his argument that the Great Red Spot of Jupiter is "evidence" for the birth of Venus, and by his description of Robert Forrest's critique as "reasonable", and by concurring with Forrest that myths and legends "cannot be regarded as scientific evidence". Crew then appeals for a ... theory. Venus as a Comet? source: Astronomy April 1982, pp. 28-30 One of the severest criticisms of Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision thesis over the years has been the apparent "impossibility" of explaining how a once erratic comet could have settled to become the planet Venus on a near-circular orbit. In the case of Clube and Napier, this "wildly impossible" notion led them to totally reject Velikovsky's Venus-comet theory and to seek another (and totally artificial) way of explaining why the myths seemed to equate Venus with the ...

... quasars and galaxies and shown that the Hubble expansion of the universe is a fiction: there could never have been a Big Bang. After a lifetime of exemplary research, he relates evidence that the academic approach is failing in his field. His latest book, Seeing Red, is a war-cry against Big Bang cosmology. He writes in the preface, 'This, then, is the crisis for the reasonable members of the profession. With so many alternative, contradictory theories, many of them fitting the evidence very badly, abandoning the ... the origin of the solar system [9. In July 1998 he received the prestigious Leonard Medal of the Meteoritical Society. In his address, titled 'On the difficulties of making Earth-like planets' [10, he concluded: 'When the remote chances of developing a habitable planet are added to the chances of developing both high intelligence and a technically advanced civilization, the odds of finding 'little green men' elsewhere in the universe decline to zero'. Something is seriously wrong if Taylor, using the best models that modern science can provide ...
