... celestial family', although 'family' might not have been the best description for the mixed crew of the Solar System: "So varied are the faces in this portrait gallery of planets that it is hard to imagine they all belong to the same family." Red Shift Renegades source: Sunday Correspondent 12.8.90 A group of astronomers have a new theory that the red shift effect may not indicate the distance of galaxies at all (cf. Arp's theory Workshop 1987:2, p. 35), but may simply be due ... light scattering by material within galaxies (cf Workshop 1990:1, p. 23). They say their theory provides a neat answer to a bitter controversy in astronomy. Photographs showing streams of gas apparently passing on to a far more distant quasar have been dismissed as coincidence, but renegades have supported their reality. Meanwhile, the controversy 'has cost jobs'. Does nothing ever change? Surface of Venus source: Daily Telegraph 23.8.90 The troubled Magellan space probe has been sending pictures of the surface of Venus back to Earth, ...
... . Unfortunately, this is one of the primary reasons for its continued acceptance and the reluctance by some scientists to ponder its possible incorrectness. The Hubble constant is unlike other physical constants. It cannot be measured under laboratory conditions, but depends on a circular argument (red shifted stellar spectral lines predominated, which some interpreted as indicating an expanding universe. As the expanding universe concept grew in acceptance, this led to further acceptance of the Hubble constant's use). It is proposed here that small induced dipole forces acting on photons can ... ' orbit. If it does, this will provide a definitive test for both the electric comet concept and the IEDRS concept. If comets are ice balls with tail ions moving away from the Sun, then the Venus Orbiter should detect a blue-shift due to the doppler shift of light from approaching tail ions. If, however, the present paper is correct, then a red-shift will occur for two reasons, 1) the doppler shift of light from receding tail ions and 2) the induced electric dipole red-shift due to the charged ...

... demise of Saturn by its going nova approximately six thousand years ago, the mountain sagged and was called Atlas or the continent Atlantis. (The Mountain was called God; the one and only monotheistic God!) The nova explosion of Saturn knocked Venus out of the red spot of Jupiter, situated just behind Saturn in axial alignment, as a white hot ball of fuming sulphuric acid with a tail of 'blood' red iron oxide that brought in the iron age and petroleum products, both non-polar and polar, such as sugar and ... magnetic field reversal is impossible; even a small change in the Earth's rotational moment would completely disrupt the Earth's crust, if not the whole Earth. Natural remanent magnetism (NRM) or palaeomagnetism is actually substantial proof of a catastrophic rather than a slow, uniform continental shift (not drift) for two reasons: (i) slow drift could not cause out-of-orientation magnetism in magnetic rocks because the time involved would be too great, and (ii) the drastic changes seen in the orientations could not have occurred. In the first ...

... his "revised stratigraphy" at the Glasgow Conference, that he should apply this to the problem of the Arabah mines. The dispute centred on the site of Timna, situated some 25 km north of the Gulf of Aqaba in the dry valley stretching up from the Red Sea. Timna was excavated in the 1930s by Nelson Glueck, who, on the basis of the pottery evidence combined with historical probability, dated an important phase of the mining activity to the 10th to 6th centuries BC. The pottery types were compared by Glueck ... into Egypt but the Alexandrian calendar of 365 days remained in use. By AD 139 there was a discrepancy of 41 days between the Julian and Alexandrian calendars for the date of 1 Thot, the Egyptian New Year's Day. In 165 years, there had been a shift of day a year, as one would expect. On 1 Thot AD 139 the star Sirius rose heliacally; in 238 BC this event occurred on 1 Payni- a shift of 95 days in the Egyptian calendar in 377 years, again at the rate of ...

... Times 16.8.98 Another attempt to explain all the plagues of Egypt as a serial cascade of related events (mistakenly described as the first such attempt) has been described by two medics. It starts with a blood-red alga which releases neurotoxins, killing fish and colouring the water red. Frogs, in increased numbers due to lack of predation by fish, abandoned the toxic waters. Flies were multiplying stable flies and a tiny gnat could have been the 'lice', which spread a deadly haemorrhagic African horse sickness to livestock. Boils were glanders ... unconvincing attempt to explain the demise of this old ecosystem glosses over the real stumbling block: the long period of perpetual night during the winter for which none of the flora or fauna was adapted. Is it just a coincidence that around 34 Myrs ago a massive climate shift from warm and humid to cold and arid hit Europe and Mongolia, wiping out the original flora and fauna? A sudden polar shift is the most reasonable of answers. Natural nuclear reactors Science Frontiers No. 121, Jan-Feb 99, p. 1 Natural concentrations ...

... . Hence, what could be a relatively nearby cluster of mixed galaxies and quasars becomes a "spike" or "finger" of objects stretching away from the Earth. What does this have to do with reality as we imagine it? On page 69 of Seeing Red, Arp plots all the galaxies in the Virgo cluster at their Doppler-interpreted redshift distances. The galaxies stretch out in a long, narrow strip exactly along a radius vector from Earth. The same effect can be seen in other clusters. If quasars were to be ... redshift (blueshift, actually) of the ionized cloud at the center of NGC, the website said this: "The exact position of the lines relative to laboratory standards shows that the lines are shifted systematically to shorter wavelengths by a fraction of a percent. This shift is due to the gas moving away from the source (Doppler effect). It indicates that the blanket of absorbing gas is flowing away from the black hole at about a million kilometers per hour (600,000 miles per hour), probably because of ...

... and islands (even with familiar earthly names, such as the Nile in the Zeus-Typhon legend) are celestial features [74. Atlantis was so interpreted, despite its human inhabitants and its interaction with Athens. The Egyptian Black Land of the fertility god Osiris and the Red Land of the destroyer, Seth, are not even considered as the Nile strip and the desert: they are identified, it seems, with the two circles of Timaeus, and therefore with the arms and legs of the goddess Nut... (Apparently ... planetary/catastrophic references from mythology to take them on board, by the trick of asserting that the ancients transferred cometary names to planets on the basis of 'commensurabilities'. The arguments used were riddled with factual/numerical errors. In 'Winter' the justification for this shift from comet to planet is not tackled, but it is affirmed that 'Tales relating to Encke's Comet, like Venus a brilliant morning and evening object, were probably, in the New World as in the Old, eventually transferred to the planet.' [p ...
98. The Role Of The Nile In Egyptian Chronology [SIS C&C Review $]
... it has only two. The early Ptolemies diverted part of the Nile far upstream to irrigate the Fayyum area (which they called the Nome of Arsinoe). Ramesses II, as well as Necho, are said to have dug a canal connecting the Nile and the Red Sea. With these sorts of things going on, how are we supposed to retrocalculate the behaviour of the Nile all the way back to the 13 th century? Kitchen and Janssen haven't the slightest idea what kind of schedule the Nile River was following in the ... a bit, Rohl gets this by way of 430=120. Unfortunately, he seems to think that this is not an oversimplification. He speaks of how 'the calendar slips by 025 of a day every year and therefore a full day every four years. A shift of 30 days thus requires 120 years (4 30) to have elapsed in the Sothic cycle.' (As we have noted earlier, any reference to a Sothic cycle in this context is beside the point.) The other 120 is due to Rohl's ...
99. New Scenarios for Solar System Evolution [SIS Internet Digest $]
... out of nothing and that this matter is still exploding away from itself in all directions. An enormous edifice of theory has been built upon this assumption but, like an inverted pyramid resting on its apex, it all rests on the assumption that the shifting to the red of the light of faint galaxies means that they are receding from us with speeds that can approach the speed of light. For the last 33 years, however, observational evidence has shown that objects of enormously different redshift can be at the same place in space ... the solar system. Our work shows that the impact of extraterrestrial objects as small as an Apollo class asteroid could "trigger" a process which in a matter of days would cause a "reshaping" of the equatorial bulge around a different axis, inducing therefore a shift of the poles and a change of the tilt. In order to trigger the process, the peak value of the torque developed by the impact has to overtake a "threshold" value, equal to the stabilizing torque developed by the equatorial bulge. A rough ...
100. CHZ and Solar System Stability [The Velikovskian $]
... response, is no response. Typical of this is Barry Evans' explanation: [It is tempting to think the reason [Mars has no water is simply that Mars orbits farther out than we do, but the distance from the Sun turns out to be a red herring. To illustrate this point, consider two facts: one, Venus receives twice as much solar radiation as [the Earth, yet it actually retains less solar energy than [the Earth does (because its sulfuric acid clouds reflect 80% of sunlight before ... early oceans stayed warm enough to allow for water until the CHZ moved outward to the Earth; and Mars, a small planet, lost its heat more rapidly and then lost its atmosphere and water, which escaped into space. What the scientists have done is to shift their paradigm for the birth of planets as cold bodies to warm ones in order to make the planetary water history fit the evidence. But the paradigm still does not work. If Mars had lost its water 3 or 4 billion years ago, erosion would still ...
