201. O-Kee-Pa: Catastrophe Myths and Rituals of the North American Mandan Indians [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . The bodies of the two men, who were probably medicine men, were painted red, with their hands and feet black; and the one who made the incision with the knife wore a mask that the young men should never know who gave them their wounds; and on their bodies and limbs they had conspicuously marked with paint the scars which they bore, as evidence that they had passed through the same ordeal. To these two men one of the emaciated candidates at a time crawled up, and submitted to the knife, . . . In each case these young men submitted to the knife, to the insertion of the splints, and even to being hung and ...
202. Thoth Vol IV, No 13: Aug 31, 2000 [Journals] [Thoth]
... evidence can be presented. However, it highlights the crucial distinction between the planetary catastrophism of the Electric Universe and that of neo-catastrophists who attempt to explain the evidence for planetary encounters in terms of cometary phenomena. Modern comets simply do not fit the descriptions from the past. Nor can they account for abundant evidence of fresh looking planetary cratering and scarring. Besides, in an Electric Universe comets are not the apocalyptic threat to the Earth imaginatively portrayed by artists. Such pictures are entirely fanciful because a comet would be disrupted electrically by a cosmic thunderbolt before it hit the Earth. The only visible evidence remaining would be an electric arc crater like Meteor Crater in Arizona. The Electric Universe ...

... in the historical investigation. For many years I had insisted that electromagnetism would have to be considered if we were to account for the remembered dynamics of the ancient Saturnian system. 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 ...
204. Society News [Journals] [SIS Review]
... work achieved world wide recognition when he reconstructed a head of an Egyptian girl which captured the attention of the newspapers. He has helped police to catch murderers by creating a face from a skeleton which was subsequently recognised by people who knew the victim. His reconstruction of a face from a rich tomb in Greece, complete with a distinctive facial scar, confirmed the tomb owner as a famous historical ruler whose burial was thought to have been lost.

... a result of the breath of tourists or external atmospheric variations, then the structures can actually wear away faster than they form. In one Scottish cave, 10,000 year old stalactites do not appear to have grown at all in the last 100 years. Scientists measuring wartime pollution in trees around Sheffield have found that they have to use scar tissue, where the tree has encapsulated any metals in a wound, to get reliable results. The standard technique of measuring the actual rings is suspect because pollutants disperse throughout the tree with time. Apparently uranium did not appear in tree rings around Nagasaki until 15 years after the atomic bomb explosion. Eclipse records New Scientist 30.1 ...
206. Site Destructions and Discontinuities in the Bronze Age [Articles]
... This is the Adonis Group.- These are the orbits of these known planetoids, some of which come very close to us, in 1935 one came very close indeed to us and it would have been quite a catastrophe if it would have come much closer and hit us.- Here is an astroblem in Mauritania, a very big scar, and we have a great many more, in fact some people think the Arctic Ocean is where a very large planetoid hit us. This is the theory of a German called Otto Muck. He was a scientist, he was one of the men who invented the Peenemünde rocket and he has about 2000 patents, and Atlantis was ...
... 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 ...
208. The Saturn Theory [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the electrically sterile impact scenario painted by the Doomsday people. Wal argued that the round impact craters' on the Moon are electric discharge effects. So are most of the impact craters' on Earth. Olympus Mons on Mars has all of the hallmarks of a fulgamite - the raised blister seen on lightning conductors after a strike. Circularity of scarring is diagnostic of the effects of electrical spark-machining' of a surface. Geologists have admitted that they are unable to reproduce the characteristics of impact' craters by firing hyper-velocity projectiles into targets or by using explosions. Bodies entering the Earth's electrical environment (the misnamed magnetosphere') need to adjust to that new situation. Unlike the many artistic ...

... " with Mars  in the late seventh century B.C . Similarly, volcanism has been declining for a long time in comparison with its incidence in ancient times and prehistory. Too, the measurable inching of the Arabian peninsula towards Asia is the dying impulsion of its recent amputation from Africa: the Red Sea is the surgical scar marking the line of severance . Indeed the phenomenon of "erosion" that is basic to uniformitarian geology is largely derivative. It is an attenuated effect of the catastrophes that carved canyons and raised mountains. All of these statements will be clearer in the light of later chapters. It would appear in passages from Velikovsky and ...

... have at one time been filled with an intense heat. Their walls are melted and their contents fused. The stones of the innermost cell of a long barrow near Maughold on the Isle of Man have been fused together like the mysterious vitrified towers of Scotland and elsewhere." Many Egyptian tombs and the interiors of pyramids are scarred by intense heat. Caliche (CaCO3) adhering to bones and rock undersides in a California burial cairn provide radiometric dates of 19,000 to 21,000 years, whereas archaeological estimates of the many such cairns give 5,000 B.P . or less . The famed caves of Aquitaine (France)[ ...
