11. The Electric Universe [SIS C&C Review $]
... craters, any one of which should have shattered the body if it was due to an impact [42. Instead, the craters are 'birthmarks', burnt into their surface as the asteroids were ripped from a planetary surface by powerful electric forces that swamped gravity. The most noteworthy of all planetary scars is that of Valles Marineris on Mars. It is also the most compelling argument in favour of the recentness of planetary wandering, as documented by Ev Cochrane [43. Note the parallelism and fractal circularity of the edges of the scar. Two million cubic kilometres of rock and soil were excavated and hurled around the planet or into space. Meteorites arriving on Earth from Mars and rock strewn vistas from Mars' surface are not surprising in the Electric Universe model. Crater counting as a means of surface dating is meaningless. We must pay heed to our ancestors when they have the planetary gods looming large in the sky and battling with their favoured weapon_ the thunderbolt. Brian Ford in 1965 was the first to note the similarity of spark machining craters and those ...

... moons. What do we actually find? The planets provide an embarrassment of riches. Electrical scarring is ubiquitous in the solar system, from tiny meteorites to asteroids, moons and all planets with a solid surface. It becomes evident why the controversy over volcano versus impact to explain cratering ran for so long [18. Essentially it was because neither could explain the observed cratering in every detail [19. The scarring caused by electric arcs and powerful lightning is quite distinct from volcanoes and impacts. There are two main types of electrical scar related to whether the object takes the role of cathode or anode in the discharge. In other words, whether it is the more negative or positive target in the interplanetary charge exchange. Cathode scarring is related to 'cold cathode' phenomena, where electrons must be ripped from a surface by an intense electric field. Such scarring is usually characterised by sinuous rilles, where the discharge moves rapidly across a surface, blasting a snaking channel as it follows the field along topographic highs and often creating a chain of circular craters in the ...
13. Bull's Eye Pattern Of Magnetic Anomalies [Science Frontiers Website]
... May-Jun 1982 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Bull's eye pattern of magnetic anomalies In SF#20, concentric rings of gravity anomalies centered in Canada are described. A similar patter of magnetic rings has shown up in the Yucatan peninsula. The inner ring is 60 kilometers across; the second, 180 kilometers. The rocks causing the magnetic anomalies are about 1100 feet down. Since these rocks are probably Late Cretaceous in age, this potential impact feature may be the eagerly sought scar of the asteroid impact that some think wiped out the dinosaurs and left an iridium-rich layer all over the world.

14. Lightning "attacks" vehicles [Science Frontiers Website]
... The electric power went out. The kitchen clock froze at 3.30 PM. Mr Shelhamer saw three wisps of smoke rise from his parking area. He noticed a strange smell in the air. A pickup truck, parked near the house, was covered with dirt. Two of its tyres were flat, and the hubcaps were lying on the ground. Strange trenches and tracks had appeared in the surface of the parking area. These trenches led Mr Shelhamer to a hickory tree, about 20m from the house. On it a 10cm scar had appeared, spiralling up the trunk toward the sky. A few minutes earlier it had begun to rain, and all this was the result of the lightning strike. "Perhaps the most extraordinary aspect of this lightning strike was the way the currents flowing from the hickory tree along the surface of the ground apparently leapt out of the ground in places to pass through the automobiles parked in the parking area. Two of the trenches that radiated from the tree ended at an automobile, but reappeared at the opposite side or end ...

... back into geological time. erosion on the unvegetated pre Devonian relief must have been distinctive and although vegetation types expanded their range, grasses did not appear until the Miocene. It seems that a geographical range of studies of the inter- relationships between present-day forms and the processes of erosion, transport, and deposition will still give a good idea of the way in which these mechanisms operated in the past. But the appearance of the past is not easy to imagine. It is difficult to conceive that where now there is the landslip scar and irregular toe of slumped material there was a smooth slope giving little indication that rain. molecule by molecule. was weakening its, internal cohesion. It is difficult to imagine forests once cloaking grassy or rocky slopes and that in terms of geomorphological time a cover of ice disappeared overnight. It is hard to believe that only five hundred generations ago. sea level was l30m below its present stand and that it then started to rise at a rate of about 45 cm per generation. By the time that the rise halted more ...

Clark D.H., McCrea W.H., Stephenson F.R., 1977: Frequency of nearby supernovae and climatic and biological catastrophe. Nature 265: 318-319. Guerrier E., 1976: Le forgeron venu du ciel. Kadath 17: 30-36. Lake Bosumtwi (diameter 8 kms) 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 kms 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 many other West African peoples, such as Mandinqoes and Bambaras. Many priests make a pilgrimage to the Lake or to the nearby town of Kumassi, and also many blacksmiths visit the Lake before ...

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 lowest point on Mars, and quite possibly a large impact basin. And Alba Patera is "only" about 30 degrees or so from the Tharsis bulge. What does this mean? Beats me. could be a coincidence ...
18. The Electric Universe CD by Wallace Thornhill [SIS Internet Digest $]
... lightning scars on golf courses and videos taken of lava tubes in Australia to sinuous rilles on the moon. He finds that these enormous scars on the moon have more in common with lightning scars than with collapsed lava tubes, the conventional astronomical explanation. Thornhill takes us on a fast-paced tour of planets, moons, asteroids and comets. All show evidence of planetary-scale electrical scarring. He claims that Valles Marineris, the 4000 kilometer long canyon across the face of the planet Mars, is an example of a cathode discharge, a lightning scar. He interprets Olympus Mons, the biggest "volcano" in the solar system, as a giant "blister", comparable to fulgamites found on lightning conductors after a strike. On Venus, Thornhill displays the arachnoid, or spider web, patterns of craters and rilles, along with on-channel cratering and parallel channels terminating in craters. All are characteristic of electrical discharge. Astronomers haven't yet agreed with catastrophists that Venus is young, but they now refer to its pristine appearance as "recently resurfaced." Thornhill's theory replaces the ...
19. The Thunderbolt in Myth and Symbol [SIS Internet Digest $]
... ..Weapon of Planetary Gods: There is one more lightning motif that must be mentioned. This theme is perhaps the most enigmatic of all, and it traces to the earliest astronomical traditions. It seems that, amongst many ancient peoples, the owners of the lightning bolt were PLANETS, when the planets were claimed to have ruled the world. [..From the beginning I was convinced (following Velikovsky's lead) that lightning bolts had passed between planets. And I had identified the Valles Marineris on Mars as the lightning scar, wound, or disfiguring mark on the celestial warriors of mythology (the "Scarface" motif about which I've spoken elsewhere). But prior to Wal Thornhill's arrival in Portland, I didn't even know what a Birkeland Current is, and I knew nothing about the unique configurations taken by plasma discharges. Convergence of Myth and Science While I've experienced many breakthroughs over more than a quarter century, this one exceeded all others. It was the first indication that, at a level of explicit detail, a convergence of myth and ...

... such a planet would have equal energy radiating onto its surface, and hence no seasons. Brown dwarfs also show carbon in their spectra, and most would be a benign environment for life. Sedimentary layers are found even on the Moon, Mars and asteroids, perhaps from the material ejected by stars. The proto-Saturn system could have its origin outside our Solar System. It approaches the ecliptic, and as it encounters the Sun's electrical environment, the proto-Saturn system destablises, and it breaks apart. The Grand Canyon looks like an electrical scar (See Back Cover). Universal energy is electrical, and if there are particles whose speed is greater than light, then we are part of a holistic universe.
