31. Thoth [Journals] [Thoth]
... . The work also offers a mind-stretching convergence of physics with the global testimony of ancient witnesses. Only a few thousand years ago, the violent interplay of planets inspired ancient stories of earth-threatening cosmic upheavals. Planetary gods battled in the sky, pounding each other with lightning bolts. And now, this planetary drama can be verified in the dominant scarring patterns of planets and moons, showing unmistakable markers of electrical discharges. The evidence suggests that very recently on the geological time scale interplanetary lightning flew between these bodies when they moved on unstable orbits. But Thornhill does not stop with a visual display of unexplained crater and rille patterns; he gives us laboratory demonstrations. The conclusion? Electricity ...

35. The Ruined Face of a Classic Beauty [Books] [de Grazia books]
... a Classic Beauty In the Iliad, Aphrodite leads her wounded lover Ares off the field of battle after he is pierced by the spear of warlike Athena-Venus, and in so doing is herself struck. The poets and historians of ancient times may have known more than we do of disasters among the planets, "That the Moon was attacked and scarred by the comet Venus was known to the Greeks and described graphically by Nonnus." So writes Peter James, and we quote the fine passage from this historian of late ancient times, Nonnus: "Many a time he (Typhon) took a bull at rest from his rustic plowtree and shook him with a threatening hand, bellow ...

37. General Conclusions [Books]
... scientific world that giant meteorites have in fact struck our planet. We have followed the development and perfection of new methods of investigation which have resulted first in the positive identification of fossil meteoritic craters and then of possible and probable meteoritic structures, of successively larger and larger size. With the accumulation of evidence for the reality of huge `cosmic scars', we were entitled to wonder whether the Earth's movements would not be disturbed by the impacts of bodies of planetoid dimensions. We put forward some simple calculations, based on some reasonable and acceptable assumptions, as to the different effects of the energy released on impact, and these show that the phenomena of shift (of the axis ...
38. Noah's Flood: Mars Flyby [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Eric Junes Our case for the ancient, catastrophic orbit of Mars and for Mars' planetary catastrophism has been presented in several previous articles. The most recent was on the origin and odyssey of Halley's Comet. Another was on the origin of the Earth's geomagnetic field. And a third described the flood of Mars. A fourth, "The Scars of Mars," described the origin of most of its craters and the ancient ring system of meteors. The following parameters apply to our model. (1 ) Mars has a mass 10 1/2 percent that of the Earth, and a diameter of 4200 miles. (2 ) The closest distance between the two planets, ...

... stories (myths) of these events. Then several other astronomers, astrophysicists, and geologists added support to such speculations. Among these theorists are the eminent astronomers Fred Hoyle and Tom Van Flandern. According to the latter theorist, an "exploding planet" devastated the surfaces of Mars and other bodies in the solar system, perhaps leaving its scars on human imagination as well. And now, a half century after Worlds in Collision, a few well- accredited catastrophists, including dendrochronologist Mike Baillie, are beginning to admit a debt to Velikovsky, usually with the disclaimer that of course he was wrong about unstable planets being involved in these events. This general assessment of Velikovsky is ...
40. On Morrison: Some Final Remarks (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... temperature of Venus is not an argument in favor of Velikovsky. On the Moon the astronomical evidence is more direct. I believe that the arguments I discussed on pages 166-172 of Scientists Confront Velikovsky provide the strongest astronomical case against planetary encounters of the Velikovsky type. Juergens states (IV, 77) that I "automatically equate craters and impact scars". I do this because a trained geologist can recognize the difference between an impact crater and a volcanic crater, and almost without exception lunar craters are impact craters. Juergens continues: ". . . Velikovsky, on the other hand, recognized long ago that interplanetary electrical discharges may have produced many of the craters now in evidence ...
