... I offer at the start a short survey of the most celebrated cases, and it is not by chance that almost all of them come from the domain of astronomy. These cases are spectacular and, with one or two exceptions, are well known. The story of scientific "clairvoyance" in modern astronomy starts with Johannes Kepler, a strange case and little known. When Galileo, using the telescope he had built after the model of an instrument invented by a Danish craftsman, discovered the satellites circling Jupiter, Kepler became very eager to see the satellites himself and begged in letters to have an instrument sent to Prague; Galileo did not even answer him. Next, Galileo ...

... the movement of the sun happened on the evening of the destruction of Sennacherib's army by a devouring blast."(7 ) In other words, according to the rabbinical sources cited by Velikovsky, the sequence of events was 1) a disturbance in the apparent diurnal orbiting of the sun by ten "ma'alot"; and 2) the strange events of the ensuing night when a mysterious heavenly blast destroyed Sennacherib's army. VI Did something equally unusual occur during the Great Mahabharata War during the night following the slaying of King Jayadratha? Until the day of King Jayadratha's death, the warring sides in the Great Mahabharata War had restricted all their fighting to the daytime: there was no ...

143. Problems for Rohl's New Chronology [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... many problems in Mesopotamia as the Old Kingdom does in Egypt. Ziggurat building: 1. How is it that the Assyrians of the 8th and 7th centuries, and the neo-Chaldaeans of the same period, once again began to erect ziggurats, just as their ancestors in Sumer and Akkad had done almost two thousand years earlier? 2. This strange taste for reviving the ancient past looks all the more strange when it is compared to the contemporary taste in 8th and 7th century Egypt for reviving the styles of the Pyramid Age. How does the New Chronology explain this? Identity of the Chaldaeans: 1. The Assyrians of the Empire described the Chaldaeans as inhabiting 820 walled and unwalled ...

... , Emmet continues to echo him, "could not heat up enough to begin deuterium burning "( 13) Or is it that these two "planets" did once so burn as relatively miniature suns and that, through evolutionary or catastrophic processes, their glorious radiation became permanently dimmed?- For how else can we account for the very strange fact that, out of the many denizens of the sky, the ancients picked on precisely these two "planets" and obstinately insisted in alluding to them both as suns? Of Jupiter, whom the Israelites called the Sun of Righteousness, (14) we shall not write here. For the present, we wish to restrict our ...

145. When Venus Was A Comet [Journals] [Kronos]
... the present authors began an extensive investigation into the role of comets in ancient tradition. It was discovered that comets played a significant role in ancient mythology and religion, one which would appear to be totally out of proportion with respect to their celestial prominence.(1 ) It eventually became apparent that most, if not all, of the strange beliefs associated with comets could be traced to a prototypical body which dominated the skies in the not-so-distant past. Thus the ancient sources unanimously tell of a former age in which the original sun god was enclosed in a gigantic celestial band which bears all the earmarks of having been cometary in nature. According to our hypothesis, it was this ...

... segments, and this form of procrastination cost him some irretrievable space in the public press. That he was completely alone in this historic venture was perhaps typified by his arrival at San Francisco. He said that this was the first time that he had arrived anywhere with no one to greet him. He was to be a stranger in a strange land, and there was no one to show him the way. On the morning of the Symposium I carted my recording equipment, cables, tapes, and other paraphernalia into the main ballroom of the Saint Francis Hotel. As it was still quite early, there were just a few people wandering about, including the technicians from the ...

From: Amara Graps, Date: Tue. 17 Oct 1995 01:23:14 GMT Jim Hardenbrook, writes: > Weird shaped, weren't there when voyager passed through Well the data so far is pretty strange. The May HST observations show Saturn "objects" (moons, ring arcs/clumps) that the August HST observations don't see, and vice versa. But the Saturn Ring Plane crossing was observed this year from not only HST, but from Spain, Chile, Mauna, Pic du Midi, and many other observatories, and ...

... derived from the Latin cancer, a crab, or crayfish, an animal typical both for its curved claws, and for its quick backward movement. This etymology has been rejected hitherto because there was evidently no connection between a crayfish and theological devil. Viewed in the light of the mythological based upon Hoerbiger's Cosmological Theory the name loses all its strangeness. It refers to the mythological devil, i.e . Tertiary satellite, which, like a crayfish, moved quickly rough the heavens from west to east, contrary to the course of Sun and the stars, which rose in the east and set in the west. The jaw-like phase of the satellite was conceived as the claws ...

... auto wrecks. The response of these people is dramatically different from the tornado behavior. The wreck victims don't see driving as hopelessly dangerous and give up the practice. Nor do they ignore the episode, driving as though nothing had happened. They do continue driving- but more carefully. They act rationally. "Why, then, the strange behavior under the tornado threat? "People around here tend not to use the word tornado', preferring the word storm'. Quite a difference in the emotive power of the two words. Even more peculiar is the fact that animals seem to know when a tornado is likely. The insects disappear, birds stop singing, dogs ...

... books that lay bare new fundamentals. ' Caught up in this fervor, more than one scientist-reviewer of Velikovsky's book adopted tactics even more surprising than the overt and covert deeds of the would-be suppressors. ** * Before attempting to trace the course of The Velikovsky Affair, we might first recall the unsettling message of the book that initiated that strange chain of events. In Britain, where Worlds in Collision was also rejected by almost all scientists, but with a lesser show of emotion, Sir Harold Spencer Jones, the later Royal Astronomer, summarized its thesis this way: The central theme of Worlds in Collision is that, according to Dr Velikovsky, between the fifteenth and eight ...
