221. Origin And Evolution Of Solar Systems [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... to the future history of all these arenas of creation. As Thomas A. Mutch, et al pointed out, it is only uniformitarian "prejudice" that stands in the way of these catastrophic concepts. `Today we refuse to believe that catastrophic, interplanetary collisions have warped Earth's history. A hundred years hence, when the large impact scars on other planets are familiar landscapes, will we feel the same. 311 In fact, the theory suggests that all massive celestial structures, galaxies, stars, and planets, comets and asteroids, are born through celestial catastrophes. Catastrophe is elemental in such births. The differences between the theory presented here and conventional theory is that catastrophism ...
222. The Milky Way [Journals] [Aeon]
... could be imagined to take its start. This would have been when the vernal equinoctial sun left its position in Gemini in the Milky Way. When it was realized the sun had been there once, the idea occurred that the Milky Way might mark the abandoned track of the sun- a burnt out area, as it were, a scar in heaven." (37) This thesis is beset by a host of problems. That there is no good evidence for knowledge of precession before Hipparchus has been noted by various authorities. (38) Yet if the thesis of de Santillana and von Dechend be true, not only must knowledge of the precession go back well into ...
223. On Morrison: Some Further Remarks [Journals] [Kronos]
... and no permanent craters can have been formed by impacts. In fact, in Velikovsky's scenario, the crust even today would probably be too thin to support these large craters permanently, . . . Thus the crater-covered surface of Venus provides one of the strongest arguments against a recent birth for this planet." Morrison automatically equates craters and impact scars, to the exclusion of other possibilities. Velikovsky, on the other hand, recognized long ago that interplanetary electrical discharges may have produced many of the craters now in evidence on the surfaces of the minor planets. For further discussions of this phenomenon, see Pensee (IVR-VII, p. 40, IVR-IX, p. 21, IVR-X ...

225. Antiquated Textbooks: Redesigning the Solar System [Journals] [Aeon]
... apparent that if a comet can smash into a nearby member of the Solar System, another one could just as easily collide with Earth. All of a sudden there was a flurry of activity among astronomers centered on the detection, and possible elimination, of Earth-crossing objects, while geologists have gone wild in their attempt to discover previously unrecognized impact scars in our terrestrial terrain. Historians are pouring over historical, pseudo-historical, and mytho-historical documents in the hope of discovering records of possible past impacts, while archaeologists are re-sifting the dust of ages to see what they might have missed among the scattered ruins of past civilizations that might be interpreted as cometary, or asteroidal, destruction. Meanwhile, ...
226. Ever Since Darwin: A Review [Journals] [Kronos]
... number of species of large mammals (mammoths included) around the end of the Pleistocene, when the continents, to all intents and purposes, were already arranged in their present positions? Then, when he has satisfactorily explained these "examples" of catastrophism, he could show how continental drift explains falls of tektites, and extensive cratering and scarring of the Earth's surface (and the Moon's), anomalous amounts of radioactivity associated with fossil remains, geomagnetic reversals, etc., etc., etc. The final irony to cap Gould's arrogant display of extreme uniformitarianism in this volume is the almost complete absence of the "neo-catastrophist" slant that has characterised much writing over the last ...
227. Computed Planetary Orbits and the Babylonian Observations of Venus [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... The potential at the internal boundary of the charged matter would also increase steadily and when it reached a critical value there would be a flashover' similar to atmospheric lightning but in a very dense medium, causing a stream of positively charged material to be ejected from the core, continuing outwards until it emerged at the surface and leaving the planet-sized scar now known as the Great Red Spot. From then on the process was studied in detail by computer, enabling values of the product of charge on the ejected material and on the Sun to be determined which would produce a trajectory of the newly formed cosmic body such that it would eventually attain a stable orbit as the planet Venus. ...
228. Jupiter God of Abraham (Part IV) [Journals] [Kronos]
... "a stone-charged whirlwind".(342) It might be argued that a single meteorite powerful enough to destroy cities should have left an impact crater. None has so far been discovered in the vicinity of the Pentapolis. Meteoric fragments, on the other hand, could have descended in a relatively gentler shower that would have left no long-lasting scars. Arriving in incandescence, they could still have smashed through walls and caused conflagrations, thus accounting for the fire which was said to have rained down on the cities. If such bolides did fall, some of them should still be around, strewn about the area. The discovery of such meteoric fragments might enable us to trace their ...

... eruptions) then what caused the massive rainstorms? If all the water in our present atmosphere were precipitated it would only suffice to cover the ground to an average depth of less than two inches (C . S. Fox: Water, p. XX [N . Y. Philosophical Library]. Donald Patten, in his article The Scars of Mars' Part II (C & AH 10:1 , pp. 25-27) suggests Mars and the Earth were hit by icy satellite fragments. These would have struck the Earth's atmosphere and burned like any meteorite. The ice particles would vaporise, condense, and fall as a massive and rather hot rain (Patten, p ...
230. Return to the Paelo-Saturnian Ssystem (Forum) [Journals] [Aeon]
... Abel as the dual Saturnian crescent makes no sense when it comes to the primal event connected with these two- the murder of Abel by Cain. Moreover, the second most important event concerning Cain is the mark by which divine displeasure branded him. This smacks of the Scarface myths of other races in which the Martian hero receives a horrendous scar upon his face. Wallace Thornhill even sees this cicatrix embodied in the enormous canyon, known as Valles Marineris, which cuts across the present Martian terrain. This formation is vast enough to have been readily visible to terrestrial eyes when Mars loomed closer to Earth.  I hope Bar-Ron will not now ask how it could have ...
