... the scientific community; it is offered only as a statement of fact. 19 SPOT If Jupiter ejected a large object, this would lead one reasonably to expect that a structural defect would bea fault in the planet. Velikovsky suggests that one of the most prominent characteristics of Jupiter, its red spot, is an atmospheric effect related to the scar where Venus was ejected. Hide has suggested that the red spot could be the result of an anomaly in the structure of Jupiter, and that the disturbance this creates manifests itself in the heavy cloud layer at the top of the atmosphere 20 He has since expanded this explanation in terms of a "Taylor Column" and performed experiments which ...

... but by a matter of some 250 degrees K (1000 K compared to 750). Dr Garry Hunt, formerly of Imperial College, informed the British Association Meeting of this astonishing and unexplained fact. He confirmed the magnetic field has an axis 60 degrees from its rotational axis; and he explained the appearance of two very heavily cratered and scarred moons, Miranda and Mimas, as being the result of very severe meteor impacts (see also Workshop 1986:1 , pp.27-28). We also recommend a detailed article in Scientific American January 1987, pp.30-38 giving the results of Voyager 2's mission to Uranus. There the extra warmth on the dark side of Uranus ...
... the two small Martian moons. Mariner 9's mapping of both Phobos (12 x 14 x 17 miles, or 20 x 23 x 28 kilometers) and Deimos (6 x 7 x 10 miles or 10 x 12 x 16 kilometers) showed many craters and left most investigators with the impression that they were merely rocky chunks that bore the scars of meteorite impacts. There was a puzzling feature on Phobos that a few analysts noticed, but without better data, could say little about. "At the limit of resolution were a few small crater pits that seemed to align in one or two chains. This was unusual, because crater chains on the moon are traditionally explained as ...

... all along it, most clearly evident from the Dead Sea to Sinai and on to the open sea. The greatest intensity was along the west coast of North America. The starting point of the rift of Pangaea was at the north pole, and far different in character than that of the EGRR. (3 ) The EGRR erased the scars of continental shift along it, not the reverse. The best example is India which shifted right across the path of the EGRR all the way from the Owens Fracture Zone to Ninety Degree Ridge. Yet the EGRR is what is seen there now. Only in those places where there has been later volcanism, as in Iceland, has ...

... how was it that they did not deposit any shells or moraine on these heights, and how was it that none of the Drift contained any trace of fauna or flora? The theory fails to explain the striae on stones, for if waves were the sole cause of the Drift the stones of the seashore would especially reveal the gashes or scars caused by the collision of stone hurled on stone. Generally, such is not the case. However, the above theory is now practically abandoned. THE ICEBERG THEORY 171.This theory* pre-supposes that icebergs in vast numbers floated in deep water over the submerged land and brought with them great quantities of debris from the arctic shores. ...

... assigns an ecumenical culture, worldwide, to Pangea, prior to the breakup of the continents. In the realm of legend, challenges to radiochronometry emerge as well. The following abstract from Catastrophist Geology may be quoted in its entirety [6 ]: Lake Bosumtwi (diameter 8 km) in Ghana is by geologists generally interpreted as the impact scar of an extraterrestrial body, and the Ivory Coast tektite field has been correlated with it on chemical and geochronological grounds. The Dogons, who live 800 km away in Mali, preserve an ancient tradition attributing the Lake to the fall of a fiery metallic mass of unusual dimensions. This legend is also an integral part of the cosmogony of ...

... It must be younger than the 12,000 year old layer of silt on which it rests and the tectites are associated with layers radiocarbon dated at 3000 years. Was Zeus a skier?Earthwatch, May-June 1993, p. 37 Mount Olympus, in northern Greece, was supposed to have presided over a Mediterranean climate, but telltale glacial scars on the mountain indicate that it bore glaciers when it shouldn't have. Surprise bore hole results Science Frontiers No.90, Nov-Dec 1993, p. 3 The second deepest bore hole in the world, in Germany, has produced a picture of a subterranean world very different from that inferred from studies of the surface and seismic and electrical ...

... the Sun. Notwithstanding this, the aforementioned abnormalities' have apparently existed throughout at least the 11,000 or so years of the Holocene epoch. Indeed, they are seemingly of such permanence that they actually underpin - perhaps unwittingly - the uniformitarian concepts which still dominate current mainstream views of natural history. If these abnormalities' are genuine catastrophe scars, then the culprit cataclysm must have been immense and far greater than the natural catastrophes (floods, eruptions, earthquakes, droughts, etc.) accepted by uniformitarianism. In that case, orthodox uniformitarian doctrine would find itself embracing world-sized catastrophic effects' as part of its primary framework, in direct opposition to its professed tenet. Apart ...

... mythology. It then follows that one might expect to see, even now, visible evidence on Jupiter of such a violent event. There would have been extensive chemical reactions with the gaseous outer regions of the planet as the core emerged, and there would have been a trail of residues of various kinds, polluting the atmosphere and leaving a scar which may still be visible. A significant comment in relation to this view was made recently by an authority on planetary atmospheres(2 ) who wrote that "on Jupiter, a steady-state storm is possible. . . . The Great Red Spot may also fit into this picture. It is difficult at this stage to account for its ...

... , but investigation now indicates that fields of these depressions form over areas of methane hydrate. Gas hydrates form under pressure and cold when organic gases such as methane become frozen in a water mixture which is unstable at normal pressures and temperatures. In some areas methane bubbles are regularly escaping and it is now thought that the pock marks are the scars of explosive eruptions of the gas. Where these have occurred in the Atlantic area near Bermuda they could be an explanation for the mysterious disappearance of ships and planes. In the arctic permafrost there are more huge deposits of gas hydrates, much nearer the surface than expected. The real mystery, though, is where did all this organic ...
