251. William H. Stiebing, Jr., and Immanuel Velikovsky [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... It is interesting to note how [scientific] fashions change. Five hundred years ago the cosmological models that are now regarded with such disinterest would have been hearsay. How might our prejudices change in the future? Today we refuse to believe that catastrophic, interplanetary collisions have warped Earth's history. A hundred years hence, when the large impact scars on the other planets [such as Mars] are familiar landscapes, will we feel the same? (124) (Emphasis added.) The door to interplanetary catastrophism is irrevocably open, even though today's generation of scientists, because of their uniformitarian prejudices, refuse to walk through it, or even admit such a door exists. ...
252. Oberg's Unscientific Method [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... considerations, Bucher rejected the meteorite hypothesis for the origin of cryptovolcanic structures: "I cannot accept a hypothesis that, in two continents, multiple meteorites (in one case [Ries] a giant and a satellite, and in the other [America] a giant and dwarf fragments) struck clearly defined terrestrial flexure zones so that their impact scars are aligned parallel to its axis with structures of proved volcanic origin." A reply to Bucher's paper, by R. S. Dietz, appeared in the same (Summer 1963) issue of the American Journal of Science... He remarked that "landing amidst this full span of volcanic effects was a most confusing thing for ...
253. The Ring of Truth by Isaac Vail [Books]
... shown and from those high latitudes and high grounds they pushed both ways. They necessarily moved northward toward the poles and southward toward the equator, as shown by the tracks they left. And now when we come to see what must have been the tremendous heights that these masses moved over to push themselves into the lower country and scour and scar mountains more than a mile high in their course and reflect that the snow piles and ice mountains in the radiant region must have been immensely higher, it would seem that the contract for producing the same by causes now in operation, would be more than the genii of terrestrial solar heat would undertake. But again how could those " ...
254. Golden Age Canopy by Isaac Vail [Books]
... philosophy accurate and truthful. There is a moral glow pure and artless. There is common sense immaculate. Thus the flood narrative of Genesis in the light of the Canopy theory carries the evidence of its truth unimpeached and unimpeachable. We may flippantly talk of mythical testimony, but here is testimony that overwhelms. Call it circumstantial evidence? It scars above uncertainty as far as the canopy floated above Earth. That narrative will yet rivet humanity's attention in its attempts to survey a lost and forgotten world. Viewed from the eternal rock of Annular Law it is one of the greatest and far reaching truths that humanity's cradle time has impressed on the world's great heart. I care not how ...
255. The Opening Of The Mouth Ritual - Part I [Journals] [Aeon]
... of the Mouth ritual must therefore be temporarily postponed until the next issue of AEON. We will there continue to investigate supplementary ancient texts, as well as contemporary vignettes from dynastic Egypt. Coupled with what we have already learned concerning the Saturnian configuration model, these will then enable us to shed additional light on the primordial events that so much scarred the human psyche. O [1 ] E.A .W . Budge, The Book of the Dead (NY 1913/1960), p. 121. [2 ] R.O . Faulkner, The Ancient Egyptian Pyramid Texts (Oxford, 1998), p. 3 (henceforth, simply PT). [ ...
... or semi-tropical world, so it became desolated by refrigeration, and the spread of snows and ice over the continents. These Titan plows, glaciers and icebergs, from the polar regions, again moved toward the equator, and continued to increase until almost every valley within the temperate zones was filled with ice. The glaciers plowed the plain, scarred the hilltops and carved the mountain side. Nay, hills were pushed aside by their resistless progress; valleys and river-systems obliterated and a living world made a panorama of universal death; in short, ground up and remodeled the surface of the luxuriant earth, for the introduction of new, but similar, forms of life. It is ...

258. From Myth to a Physical Model [Journals] [Aeon]
... reason to believe that the great awakening of modern science will begin the moment that mainstream scholars confront the underlying message of myth, and wonder if a different vantage point may be necessary. Evolution of a Physical Model Ancient mythology is a window to an alien sky and to events modern man has forgotten- events whose effects still confront us as scars on distant planets and as exotic signs and symbols of unrecognized origin. But how are we to reconstruct events occurring thousands of years ago? One must re-experience them through the eyes of ancient witnesses. Our confidence in myth and symbol arises from the recognition that the substratum is an accurate mirror of origins. Having survived for several millennia, ...
... that ruined him, added to his other advantages, was his free speaking. Nor did Niger of Peres escape their hands; he had been a man of great valor in their war with the Romans, but was now drawn through the middle of the city, and, as he went, he frequently cried out, and showed the scars of his wounds; and when he was drawn out of the gates, and despaired of his preservation, he besought them to grant him a burial; but as they had threatened him beforehand not to grant him any spot of earth for a grave, which he chiefly desired of them, so did they slay him [without permitting ...

... really be practically no sediments earlier' than the Cretaceous over most of this trough which initially trended southwestward. Crucial evidence for the ice cap model of continental drift may be the linearly-gouged shield of the Northwest Territories shown, for example, in Plate XI. This has been described previously as an erosion peneplaned' surface. However, the linear scarring of this surface may be due to gouging by huge granite blocks thrust along under the ice cap. These were perhaps granite blocks similar to the erratics' that eventually came to rest in the Mississippi Valley, Britain and the Juras and Alps. Considering that the ice sheet was probably several miles deep, that it extended well over the ...
