11. Of the Moon and Mars, Part 1 [Journals] [Pensee]
... . This is the first part of a two-part paper. According to Velikovsky's collation of ancient historical accounts, the most recent period of turmoil in the solar system ended less than 2700 years ago (1 ). Territorial disputes that continued for nearly a full century brought Venus, Mars, the earth, and the moon into repeated conflicts, scarring all of them to varying degrees. And since all this happened so very recently in geologic time, most of these battle scars should still be prominent and fresh-looking. But what kind of surface markings might be distinctively attributable to close encounters between planets? Religious, historical, and literary texts describing the battles of the planetary gods are fraught ...
12. The Electric Universe: Slide Presentation & Notes by Wallace Thornhill [Journals] [Aeon]
... illuminated by the sun." [1 ] Thornhill's electrical theory of the same data reads: "The fly-by of Comet Halley didn't show material being boiled away, instead it showed plasma beams centered on craters facing the Sun. What we saw were circular craters being formed right in front of the Giotto cameras- producing the same kind of scarring seen on asteroids and moons. That the material was being electrically removed was confirmed by the discovery of x-rays and high energy ions near the nucleus." Thornhill goes on to discuss non-gravitational orbital anomalies, then attacks received opinion which states that a comet is defined by its size and composition. He claims instead that it is the eccentricity ...
13. The Scars of Mars Part II [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History VII:1 (Feb 1985) Home | Issue Contents The Scars of Mars Part II Donald W. Patten V. Asteroids and Martian Craters Compare In 1983 a total of 2736 asteroids were identified and logged. [6 ] These were, of course, only the largest. Based on the pitlets of some asteroids and on Deimos and Phobos, Mars' two trabants (satellites), there must have been considerable debris too small to see in telescopes or to record in telescope photography. In Table III we find 3068 20-mile or larger craters in the Martian Hemisphere of Craters and only 237 in the Opposite Hemisphere. Let us assume that ...
14. The Scars of Mars - II [Journals] [Kronos]

The Hemisphere of Craters of Mars. Featuring the Subpoint (Center) and the Midpoint Between Hellas and Isidis. VI. THE LOCATION OF THE BULGE REGION ON MARS While Figure 6 illustrates the previously discussed (KRONOS X:3 , pp. 36-38) Hemisphere of Craters of Mars, Figure 7 illustrates the Opposite Hemisphere of Mars. Three kinds of phenomena are brought to attention, which are: 1. Bulging 2 ...
15. The Scars of Mars Part I [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History VI:2 (July 1984) Home | Issue Contents The Scars of Mars Part I Donald W. Patten Introduction For at least a century it has been speculated that some relatively small planet at one time disintegrated in the region between Jupiter and Mars. Struve and Zebergs, for example, write as follows: [1 ] The formation of the asteroids arid meteors often has been attributed to the break-up of a planet between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, or to the failure of the matter occupying this region to condense into a single body. And Pickering notes: [2 ] Theories of their origin are divided between their being ( ...
16. Thoth Vol I, No. 13: May 16, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... from Saturn, then Europa would have been entwined (and I use that word deliberately) in the interplanetary plasma "ropes". As I have said of the markings on Venus, when the plasma ropes are constrained to flow parallel to the surface of a planet (or moon), the result is a number of parallel marks or scars often running for great distances. The precise appearance of the scarring depends on many factors: the dielectric properties of the surface material, gas pressure at the surface, etc. The argument is strengthened when it is remembered that even the tiny moons of Mars exhibit linear scarring and circular craters. Europa seems to have suffered many episodes of ...
17. Our Universe: Unlocking its Mysteries [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... that these remarkable powers were planets. If the myths surrounding these gods are to be taken seriously, they raise many questions. Why did ancient man worship the god Saturn? The planet Saturn is very difficult for the average person to even find in the sky today. Some mythologists postulate that there is evidence in ancient lore to connect the scarred warrior hero of legend with the god Mars. Yet the planet we know as Mars is only a tiny speck in the sky today; and its deep, 2,400 mile-long canyon (scar), Valles Marineris, cannot be seen from Earth without a powerful telescope. Thunderbolts Between Planets: The myths of many of the ancients ...
18. The Saturn Thesis (Part 3) [Journals] [Aeon]
... conditions proposed by the historical argument. Since the ancient symbolists were surely not plasma physicists, we have already reached the point of astronomical improbability with respect to "accidental" explanations. But grant the implied planet-ary conditions, and the improbable accidents are removed. AEON: At the recent world conference in Portland, Wal Thornhill also talked about electrical scars on the planets and their moons. Does this has any significance for the Saturn thesis? Talbott: I know that Wal would want me to add a little context to the subject. It was almost 25 years ago that Ralph Juergens, in the Pensée series, "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered," (3 ) proposed that sinuous rilles ...

This includes Native American author, Vine Deloria (whose talk was a classic combination of original research and delightful humor); Richard Heinberg, author of Memories and Visions of Paradise; Wal Thornhill on the youthful planet Venus and the scars from its cometary past; Ted Holden on the "impossible dinosaurs;" Oxford astrophysicist Victor Clube on evidence of cometary catastrophes devastating early civilizations; AEON publisher and author Ev Cochrane on ancient images of the Saturnian configuration; Dwardu Cardona on Mars as the ancient "Morning Star;" and many others whose work is equally important but may ...
20. News from the Internet [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... seriously misled by astrophysicists and are now confused by what they see on Mars, I have the luxury of contemplating the effects of the most powerful erosion force in the universe – that of the electric arc. Following the lead provided by Ralph Juergens in the 1970's I looked at the detailed morphology of Valles Marineris to conclude that it was a scar caused by a cosmic discharge. But the question remained: how did the arc move to create a chasm at least 4000 kilometres long? There is no obvious start or finish to the canyons. Indeed there is a kind of symmetry about the central region of Melas Chasma. Electrical effects offer a unique advantage in being scalable over more ...
