71. Thoth Vol. IV, 7 April 15, 2000 [Thoth Website]
... point I will concede to the astronomers. Velikovsky's book title is misleading. It is not about colliding planets or asteroids. It seems there is an intrinsic avoidance mechanism involving cosmic electric discharges. But no astrophysicist on this planet is taught anything about electric discharges in space. Proof of that can be seen in the Tethered Satellite debacle. Yet the ancients reported planetary thunderbolts that wrought destruction on a global scale. That is where we must begin to look for the cause of cratering. Jupiter's thunderbolt is said to have created the colossal scar of Valles Marineris in a moment on Mars' face. Planetologists, in their limited view, have attributed it to water erosion. Photo caption: Valles Marineris [with nearby... craters (some with terraced walls). Crater chains and scalloped canyons are all characteristic of electrical scarring. See this and other photos photos of this article at: http://www.holoscience.com/news/pseudo_science.html As Sir Fred Hoyle wrote, "... could it be that Velikovsky had revealed, admittedly in a form that ...

Zeylik and E.Y. Seytmuratova, Dok. Akad. Nauk SSSR, vol. 218:1, 167-70 (1974). More recently a 350-500 km diameter circular structure, the Reita ring, has been described, located in South Africa. The proposal that it is a meteorite impact scar is cautiously made by R.D. Hargraves and A.D. Fuller, Precambrian Research, vol. 14, 99-106 (1981). 11. F. Duenenbier, J. Donnan, D. Lammlein, G.

73. Tektites and China's Dragon [Kronos $]
... molten matter far out into space. Earth continually sweeps up this debris which then falls in great showers. Potassium-argon and fission-track dating has pin-pointed the melting of these droplets as having occurred 700,000 years ago.(25) This is quite a reduction from Barnes' 20 million years. George Baker, however, had earlier shown that the australites (Australian tektites) could not be more than 5,000 years old.(26) Such a recent impact, had it occurred on Earth, would have left a colossal scar that should still be evident, but nowhere in the region of Terra Australis, including Antarctica, is there a crater large enough to account for such an explosion. According to Velikovsky, the rayed craters on the Moon were formed by the impact of asteroids and/ or interplanetary discharges(27) some of which took place as recently as 1500 B.C. when the Dragon-like Venus attacked both Earth and its satellite. Tycho, chosen by Chapman as one of the possible sources of tektites, is such a rayed crater. If ...
74. Stability of Solid Cores in Gaseous Planets [Kronos $]
... expected, especially considering an originally much higher temperature, means that it must have been ejected from Jupiter comparatively recently- perhaps less than ten thousand years ago- as is supported by evidence from mythology. It then follows that one might expect to see, even now, visible evidence on Jupiter of such a violent event. There would have been extensive chemical reactions with the gaseous outer regions of the planet as the core emerged, and there would have been a trail of residues of various kinds, polluting the atmosphere and leaving a scar which may still be visible. A significant comment in relation to this view was made recently by an authority on planetary atmospheres(2) who wrote that "on Jupiter, a steady-state storm is possible.... The Great Red Spot may also fit into this picture. It is difficult at this stage to account for its uniqueness, which may be associated with some unseen surface irregularity or the result of a chance capture of a planetary body." This is evidently a wild guess, in keeping with the many ...

... ago 0.544 per century, Everest would have been emplaced before the age ended. Certain lunar heat spots and moonquakes, for example, may be the fossil or ghost remnants of Aphrodite's "love affair" with Mars [30 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 [31. 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 from and inspection of Schaeffer's data that seismism was heavier throughout the Bronze Ages and Iron Age down to the Christian era. Ambraseys has attacked the job of counting earthquakes for the past 2000 years and ...
76. THE LATELY TORTURED EARTH: PART II: EXOTERRESTRIAL DROPS: 11.Encounter and Collisions [Quantavolution Website]
... Mercury and Mars evidence telescopically tens of thousands of large astroblemes. Dachille (1962), projecting the Moon's apparent experience onto Earth, estimated a round million of heavy impacts here [2. He assumes five billion years of uniform falls and applies weathering rates for the continental masses from wind, tide and vegetative erosion, ending up with somewhat over a thousand craters that are potentially identifiable. Of this thousand, 750 are below water and ice; of the remaining 250, "in the last few years a staccato tally of meteorite scar finds or recognitions has raised the total to 42-50 at this writing." He offered an independent survival rate calculated by Krynine that would be in the neighborhood of 10,000. He pointed also to new diagnostic methods, such as the discovery of coesite, a silica mineral that forms under high pressures in the laboratory and has been found in craters suspected of exoterrestrial origin. Meanwhile the space shuttle Columbia has photographed beneath the sands covering the eastern Sahara to reveal fractures, dried-up rivers, and probable paleolithic settlements. The U ...

... in East Africa. That is, all datings of hominids and early man are far too old, and the so-called hominids were probably human. They also support the thesis of Chaos and Creation that assigns an ecumenical culture, worldwide, to Pangea, prior to the breakup of the continents. In the realm of legend, challenges to radiochronometry emerge as well. The following abstract from Catastrophist Geology may be quoted in its entirety [6: Lake Bosumtwi (diameter 8 km) in Ghana is by geologists generally interpreted as the impact scar of an extraterrestrial body, and the Ivory Coast tektite field has been correlated with it on chemical and geochronological grounds. The Dogons, who live 800 km away in Mali, preserve an ancient tradition attributing the Lake to the fall of a fiery metallic mass of unusual dimensions. This legend is also an integral part of the cosmogony of many other West African peoples, such as Mandingoes and Bambaras. Many priests make a pilgrimage to the Lake or to the nearby town of Kumassi, and also many blacksmiths visit the Lake before ...
78. THE DISASTROUS LOVE AFFAIR OF MOON AND MARS: PART TWO: GODS, PLANETS, MADNESS, CHAPTER 9 [Quantavolution Website]
... "Many a time he (Typhon) took a bull at rest from his rustic plowtree and shook him with a threatening hand, bellow as he would, then shot him against the Moon like another moon, and stayed her course, then rushed hissing against the goddess, checking with the bridle her bulls' white yoke-straps, while he poured out the mortal whistle of a poison spitting viper." But Titan Mene would not yield to the attack. Battling against the Giant's heads, like-horned to hers, she carved many a scar on the shining orb of her bull's horn; and Selene's radiant cattle bellowed amazed at the gaping chasm of Typhon's throat." [1 The fable bespeaks cosmic cyclones, where earthly and celestial effects are simultaneously visible and apparently connected by an uncontrolled raging dragon-god. THE INNOCENT ASTRONAUTS The Moon, as a round rock in the sky, was a manifestation of the Goddess Aphrodite. What happened to it happened to her and what happened to her, in many cases, happened to it. We turn, therefore, to geology ...

... , is canceled out by the repellent negative charges on the surface of the bodies which operate with quite opposite effect and force. (They are repelled in proportion to charge and the square of the distance.) The "Battle of the Gods" resolves into a battle of the space-charge sheaths. The tertiary effects are heating of the bodies and their atmospheres, resulting both from electric particle bombardment and from atmospheric, hydrospheric, and lithospheric shearing friction. New levels of surface crust are developed on all of the bodies, new "scar tissue," new stratigraphy. The effects upon the biosphere are grave. They have been described time and time again by the ancient observers, by early students of the Deluge such as Whiston, Newton, and Boulanger, by modern catastrophists such as Cuvier, Donnelly and Beaumont, by contemporaries such as Patton and by Kelly and Dachille [9, Lane [10, Schaeffer, and, in especially systematic form, by Velikovsky. There emerge, in the perspective of the human race, disasters without number. The gaseous ...
