161. Thoth Vol VII, No 1: Feb 28, 2003 [Journals] [Thoth]
... covers a distance of about 10 km. The penumbral filaments last for at least one hour and are of the order of 1000 km long. If we could scale a lightning bolt 100 times we might have a flash that lasted between 20 and 200 seconds and was 1000 km long. The lifetime is too short. Also, measurements of scars on lightning conductors show that the lightning channel is only about 5 mm wide. Scaling that by 100 times would have solar lightning channels far below the limit of telescopic resolution. However, there is another familiar form of atmospheric electric discharge that does scale appropriately and could explain the mysterious dark cores of penumbral filaments. It is the tornado ...
162. Thoth Vol II, No. 8: May 15, 1998 [Journals] [Thoth]
... images of the planets and their moons, together with undeniable evidence of large-scale 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 at least some of 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 ...

164. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... next catastrophic break of crust is likely to be on the east coast of America, where pressure of sediments puts the present plate under stress, but we're probably safe for another million years. The Great Levelling (Science Frontiers, no. 149, Sept- Oct. 2002, p. 3) Today's forces of erosion create a deeply scarred planetary surface, so what happened 5 Myrs. ago to cause the formation of great areas of flat plains on all continents? There appears to have been nothing particularly special about the climate at that time. Many of our present mountain ranges formed after this event. Earthquake News (Science Frontiers, no. 147, May-June 2003, ...
165. The Origin Of The Moon [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... , however, Mars was thrown off a rapidly rotating Earth, its density would be expected to be that of the mantle mixed with a little lighter crustal material, [because] the movement of heavy material to form the Earth's core would already have occurred. Proponents of the theory argue further that Mars and the Moon left behind a permanent scar on the Earth's surface. Two-thirds of the Earth's recently solidified crust was torn away, to leave an unsymmetrical but rather more interesting world, with one-third of the surface in the form of land [to be] surrounded by a vast [low land region, inside of which formed the] ocean. At first, the solid continental ...
166. The History Of The Revisionist Debate: A Personal View [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... the late 1970's. Personal conflicts also played a major role. Like Saturn devouring his own sons in mythology, Velikovsky, like Isaac Newton, demanded unquestioning, uncritical support from those closest to him, and showed no sympathy for "heretical" speculations that deviated from his 1945 ancient history outline. The intense interpersonal conflicts these demands generated caused scars that still affect the debate today. Several former close associates of Velikovsky reacted strongly against all his work, rejecting it in toto and devoting their energies to convince others to do so. Others withdrew from the debate entirely, depriving it of their talents and knowledge. Still others became personal enemies, creating a heritage of suspicion instead of ...
167. The Location of Punt/Ophir Part I [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... While Lumbedu bathed in the sunshine of power . . . a strange conference was taking place in the great grass village the Strange Ones had built for themselves at the mouth of the Zambezi River. "Four men sat around a wooden table inside a great four-cornered grass hut. One of these men was a tall bearded red-haired giant with the scars of many battles on his massive body and the other was an old man with long hair and a flowing beard that was white as mountain snow. This old man wore broad circlets of gold, studded with precious stones, around his head, and he wore a long tunic of purple cloth, over which he had thrown a flaming ...
168. From Microcosm to Macrocosm: The Fearful Symmetry of Catastrophism [Journals] [Kronos]
... choice is his. Perhaps this is the real meaning of the individual and collective reactions of those present during the first nuclear test at Alamogordo -the eyewitnesses were experiencing a form of cosmological catastrophic deja vu. Consciously, however, they did not know it. Apocalyptic Intermezzo The atomic finale to World War 11 left both victor and vanquished alike psychologically scarred in its aftermath. This was especially true of the two protagonists- America and Japan- who alone participated directly in the holocaust of the Great War's cataclysmic end. American aerial bombing reached an almost unbridled pitch during the last days of warfare and culminated in what Quincy Howe has aptly called "The Second Coming, in Wrath" --the atomic obliteration ...

... for fusion and fission, perhaps to offer a fresh approach to controlled fusion." May not such "controlled fusion" (or limited fusion) or stellar energy processes produce the heavy element cores within the gas giants? The Stellar Nature of the Jovian Planets Forshufvud suggested (32) that the Great Red Spot of Jupiter was not the scar of the eruption of Venus, but rather a development not noted by early telescopic observation of the 17th. century, even though detectable by telescopes of such strength today. The Red Spot would therefore appear to be expanding, which led to the alarming speculation: "Is Zeus pregnant again?" Jupiter is certainly energetic. "The ...
170. Tektites and China's Dragon [Journals] [Kronos]
... 000 years ago.(25) This is quite a reduction from Barnes' 20 million years. George Baker, however, had earlier shown that the australites (Australian tektites) could not be more than 5,000 years old.(26) Such a recent impact, had it occurred on Earth, would have left a colossal scar that should still be evident, but nowhere in the region of Terra Australis, including Antarctica, is there a crater large enough to account for such an explosion. According to Velikovsky, the rayed craters on the Moon were formed by the impact of asteroids and/ or interplanetary discharges(27) some of which took place as recently ...
