152. ALL Honorable Men [Books]
... "It is interesting to note how fashions change. Five hundred years ago the cosmological models that are now regarded with such disinterest would have been heresy. How might OUR PREJUDICES change in the future? Today we refuse to believe that CATASTROPHIC INTERPLANETARY COLLISIONS [Velikovsky's theory] have warped Earth's history. A hundred years hence, when large impact scars on other planets are familiar landscapes will we feel the same?" (185) (Capitalization and emphasis added) While Morrison and Chapman accuse Velikovsky of, "reject[ing] all other evidence according to its consistency with his preconceived conclusions, . . ." (186) they reject all Velikovsky's concepts of catastrophic, interplanetary ...

... form, the ellipticity of which increases with the size of the bays; their parallel alignment; and the elevated rims at their south eastern ends. "In 1933 a theory was presented by Melton and Schriever of the University of Oklahoma, [See F.A . Melton and A.W . Schriever, The Carolina Bays-Are They Meteorite Scars? ', Journal of Geology XLI, 1933], according to which the bays are scars left by a meteoric shower or colliding comet. ' Since then the majority of authors who have dealt with the problem have accepted this view, and it has found its way into textbooks as the usual interpretation. [See D. Johnson ...
154. The Riddle of the Earth [Books]
... of Vesuvius and Etna, between which foci of attraction the mountain lies. FISSURES 63. Fissures are explained by vulcanises as lateral eruptions caused by the expansion of lava exerting a strain upon the internal walls thus bringing about an explosion resulting in a long rent or fissure out of which the lava pours. Nearly every volcano of importance bears the scars of such fissures including Etna and Vesuvius and within the last century on more than one occasion. It is frequently the feature of a major eruption that at the crisis, coincident with a tremendous explosion and earthquake, a vast vertical fissure or split is observed in one of its flanks, and almost invariably on the north or north-east side ...
155. Evidence of Careenings of the Globe [Books]
... Ice Age the rest of the globe enjoyed tropical or temperate climates, as at present. We know this because the fossils of animal and plant life indicate the climates in which each section of successive earth strata existed and they tell us clearly that the globe has rotated on many successive Axes of Figure. Five successive Ice Ages have left their scars in land areas of Canada and north-eastern United States. Glacial markings on rocks, loose boulders and debris, are in evidence over most of this area. Life Ages have occurred in these same land areas between the Ice Ages. These Life Ages were long intervals of time during which these regions were free of glaciers, and were warmer ...
156. Earth Parturition and Moon Birth [Books] [de Grazia books]
... Urey [7 ]- the first mechanism to look for is a space intruder. The stripped-down area is today occupied in part by the land that pushed into it. Conventional continental drift theory only lends confusion. But D.V . Wise writes, "Many positions of drifting or accreting continents eliminate any a priori condition to find the scar of separation on our present Earth, although if a navel' must be located, the Pacific basin is as good a spot as any." [8 ] The west coast ranges of Northern America have some formation similar to the east Chinese coast [9 ]. This would point to a more southerly explosion. The great Nazca ...
157. The Saturn Thesis: Questions and Answers [Journals] [Aeon]
... have produced many stunning images of the planets and their moons, together with undeniable evidence of sweeping catastrophe within the planetary system. Taken as a whole, these stark profiles of our neighbors challenge traditional theories claiming slow and uneventful planetary evolution. Moreover, a new possibility arises from a reconsideration of the historical material: the possibility that the horrendous scars on our planetary neighbors resulted from events witnessed by man not all that long ago. What do you mean by the statement that the planets appeared as "gigantic bodies in the sky?" At the core of the argument is the idea that several planets were once joined in a spectacular gathering of planets, together with gases and dust ...
... cones but also with smaller parasitic volcanoes, which have died out, freely sprinkled in the vicinity. We will examine Vesuvius. The original crater, called Monte Somma, is of enormous diameter, but of itself no longer active, for other craters have superseded it, thrown down part of the original crateral walls, and have in addition scarred the mountain 5 flanks in many places, as they do still. Between the years 1139 and 1306, for 167 years, Monte Somma evinced no signs of activity, and was what vulcanists term in a state of solfatara. The energies of the burning mountain were apparently exhausted and, except for certain fumarole, showed no sign of ...
159. Thoth Vol I, No. 16: June 15, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... youthful Venus, the origin of chondritic meteorites, and the electrical character of the solar system have gained much recent attention in catastrophist circles. His most recent work has focused on sinuous rilles of the Moon, Venus, Mars, the Moons of Mars, and the moons of the gas giants. He has shown these rilles to be the scars from massive electrical discharges–a finding that could well produce one of the great scientific controversies of this century. Talbott and Thornhill are now collaborating on a book, GOLDEN DAWN, COSMIC NIGHT, an introduction to the "Saturn theory," supplemented by a summary of the "electric universe," all designed for the general reader. The ...

... more often. It was a long, long time ago, needless to say. The Trouble with Titan (New Scientist, 6.11.04, p. 15 and 20.11.04, p. 9) Data is now coming back from the spacecraft Cassini-Huygens that Titan's surface appears to be crater-free, indicating that impact scars have been eroded or filled in and Titan must therefore be geologically active. It was thought to have a thick crust of water, ice and ammonia, but evidence now indicates that it is covered by a layer of organic' material. There are huge, long lines, maybe canyons or ridges, and bright areas, which resemble ...
