121. A question for Wal (and Amy and...) [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... craters. Interestingly, from the point of view of the Polar model, the southern hemisphere contains all of the ancient "weathered" terrain and the northern hemisphere seems wiped clean and has the new so-called volcanoes and the Tharsis bulge. Geologists are puzzled how such a bulge can have been sustained for any significant period. All of the new scars show little sign of weathering . It has been almost unanimously agreed that the main features of the colossal Valles Marineris and its connected canyons are caused by ground water sapping rather than liquid water flowing on the surface. The reason for this is that the tributary canyons do not have the shapes or dendritic patterns expected from rainwater runoff. Ground ...
122. Reversal Of The Earth's Spin [Books]
... swarms may have occurred in geological times, as the hollowed craters are features of the size of ocean basins. Of course, we can imagine the impact of still larger masses and greater velocities, but we are limited by the fact that the diameters of the craters become unacceptable. It has been suggested that the Pacific Ocean could be the scar of a meteoritic impact. If we accept this hypothesis, it would be the crater hollowed by a striking body of about 5x1016 metric tons.27 Such a missile would only lengthen the day by 3 hours, 17minutes, 39 seconds, and it would still need eight of such meteorites to stop the Earth rotating. ...

... macrocosm, then the events described in this book were not merely accidents of celestial traffic but normal phenomena, like birth and death."(17) Descending from the major to the minor we may ask - Do solar prominences leap out from the photosphere of protons in the hydrogen atom's nuclear core? And is the surface of its electrons scarred with the great spots and never-ending electrical storms of the atmosphere of Jupiter? Notes 1 Ralph Juergens replies to his critics, SISR II:2 , p. 49:"I can most easily imagine such an encounter in terms of a Saturnian planetary system which included the Earth being invaded, dismembered and captured by an interloping system of ...
124. Earth collision [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... way both look like ejecta.(maybe it's > the reason for the weak atmosphere as well) I would like > to hear your views on this. The Tharsis area is noted for volcanoes - Nix Olymipica is there, the largest one. The region "bulges" because of uplift from ancient volcanism. There is no corresponding impact scar on the opposite side of the planet from Tharsis. From: Ross Cunniff, firstname.lastname@example.org Date: 21 Sep 1995 15:51:31 GMT Although, interestingly, the Alba Patera (with all of its bizarre fossae, i.e . grooved terrain) is almost directly opposite Hellas Planitia - the ...
125. Rocks From Where? [Journals] [Horus]
... Juergens years before these meteorites were found and analyzed. [Pensee IX and X, 1974]. If some 2700 years ago the Moon and Mars participated in electromagnetic interactions of cosmic proportions, witnessed from Earth and preserved in myth and legend, many surface features of both bodies can be explained readily. Current theories about the origin of these scars are often strained, incomplete, or deal incongruously with the various parts of the puzzle. Based on the evidence marshaled by Velikovsky, it is likely that phenomenal plasma discharges took place between the Moon and Mars, with the Moon as the cathode and with Mars as the anode. Given a close enough approach of the two bodies, ...
... the big planets (Jupiter, Mars), so as to throw some of them across the Earth's path. When this happens, collision with our planet may become not only a possibility but a probability. As explained later in this book, the evidence that such encounters have actually happened in the past is a matter of identification of the scars left on the Earth by the impacting bodies. Impacts by giant meteorites may: (a ) Shift the Earth's polar axis of rotation, and, (b ) Simultaneously, change the angular velocities of our planet (consequently, change the length of the day). In addition, as we shall see in a subsequent chapter, ...

128. Earth In Chaos by Peter M. James [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... , fans and arrays were laid out to demonstrate are all discussed but the most interesting features by far are the long lines of menhirs at Carnac and the Dorset Cursus. James puts forward an excellent argument in which he proposes that the Dorset Cursus was a broad shallow excavation made by removing the topsoil from the underlying chalk to produce a white scar just the sort of thing to catch the Sun God's attention as he came over the [midsummer] horizon'. However although it is 10km long, it is not straight, but snakes along, heading on different bearings. He compares it to the line at Le Petit Menec (France), where construction was suddenly abandoned - ...
129. The Burning of Troy [Books] [de Grazia books]
... that the overwhelming fallout of Thera ash occurred in the Southeastern Mediterranean Sea. Yet geologists might consider whether internal earth stresses could have induced not only the familiar cone volcanoes but also fissure eruptions, which, no matter how voluminously eruptive, leave little evidence for the unsuspecting eye once they have become extinct. A geologist might then search for some scars and volcanic products on the modern landscape. It is well to remind ourselves that Homer, in describing at least one Trojan war, has Mt. Ida behaving in peculiar ways when the gods of heaven enter the battle of Greeks and Trojans: "From high above the father of gods and men made thunder terribly, while Poseidon from ...

... an entirely new way of seeing planetary history and the evolution of human consciousness. Below is a preliminary list, as promised, of themes you will find explored in this and subsequent issues of the THOTH newsletter: ^À New models of planetary history based on systematic cross-cultural comparison. Global myths and symbols of an alien sky. ^À Scars of planetary violence in the solar system, as exposed by recent space exploration. The new catastrophist profile of the planet Venus, resulting from the Magellan probe. Those improbable meteorites from Mars. The mystery of former oceans and rivers of Mars. ^À Evidence of massive electrical scarring on the Moon, Venus, Mars, and ( ...
