... From: Pensée Vol. 4 No 1: (Winter 1973-74) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered VI" Home | Issue Contents A NEW CHAPTER IN THE "VELIKOVSKY AFFAIR"Astronomer Ernst J. Öpik finds the world in grave danger from dictatorial regimes owing to the "phenomenal credulity" of people like those who read Velikovsky. Apparently the strange phenomenon of the closed mind reviewing the unopened book is still with us. A Pensee advertisement in Science News for August 5, 1972, seems to have fueled wrath smouldering since 1950 in the breast of astronomer Ernst J. Öpik, editor of the Irish Astronomical Journal. He immediately took to the warpath and devoted two and one-half pages ...

262. The Gold of Exodus by Howard Blum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... The Gold of Exodus by Howard Blum (Hodder & Stoughton, 1998) The gold of the title is that supposedly left buried or lying about near Mt Sinai or Moses' Mountain by the Israelites, following the incident of the Golden Calf and the making by Bezalel and Oholiab of the Ark of the Covenant. Whether the protagonists of this strange adventure story, Larry Williams and Bob Cornuke, find any gold I shall leave to readers to learn for themselves. The story is told and embellished by a journalist with direct access to them, their printed versions and several official documentary sources. It combines elements of thriller, spy story and Biblical archaeology. The background of international intrigue ...

... line of duty," he must have been gripped by an illusion that referred to an entirely personal problem of his own in regard to Moses. What could it have been? Martin Sieff, a Belfast Anglo-Irish-Jewish journalist and historian-one of the cosmic heretics- spoke out in 1981 about the taboo: "The role of Moses is strangely muted in Worlds in Collision. Moses is mentioned only in connection with the voice of Yahweh at the flaming bush and the trumpet blasts of Sinai." Further, "in Ages in Chaos, one major figure who is obvious in his absence from the same historical canvas, is that same Moses." Again significantly, the ideas ...

264. The Great Wave by David Hacket Fischer [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1999:2 (Feb 2000) Home | Issue Contents The Great Wave by David Hacket Fischer Oxford Univ. Press, 1996 Phillip Clapham This is a book about economics, which may seem a million miles away from Catastrophism but strangely it is not. The author focuses on several great waves of inflationary growth. These are a steady sequence of price rises from the late 12th to the early 14th century AD, the early 15th to mid 17th, during the 18th, from 1730-1800 and the current wave which began in the 1890s. Fischer draws a connection between waves of rising prices and increasing population pressure. The interregnums between a) ...

... a thousand Flood myths are known. Many peoples possess more than one report, and there seems to be no tribe that does not remember a great water catastrophe in its distant past. Most peoples, in fact, consider the Deluge as the earliest major event in their history that they remember. At first sight it seems to be a strange thing that an event of negative' character like the destruction of the world should feature so large in the folk-memory and be told with so much circumstantial detail, while that positive' event, the creation of the world, is comparatively rather rarely mentioned and hardly ever much elaborated. The most likely reason for this peculiar fact we have ...

266. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... with resulting vegetation shift from grassland to tundra, as the cause. Phillip Clapham writes that this suggests strongly that the end of the "Ice Age" was in effect a pole shift, a factor further suggested by the discovery of a 700,000 year old axe on the undercliff in Norfolk. Presumably this was during one of those strange interglacials which have been proposed to account for anomalous material found in "Ice Age" strata, namely, warm weather and fauna. We now have around 7 interglacials, which is taking the theory to the extreme limits. ' CATASTROPHE Old Kingdom Ice Age ( BBC2, Horizon', 7.11.03.) Writings found ...

267. Our Universe: Unlocking its Mysteries [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... .org/ouruniverse.htm What Kind of Sky Did the Ancients See? Long before there were telescopes, space probes, or shuttle missions, prehistoric man cast his eyes to the heavens. Pictographs and hieroglyphs of a great diversity of early cultures independently depict man's fascination with and fear of what he observed. Myths and lore tell of strange and violent events - terrifying dramas in the heavens and catastrophic changes in the cosmic order itself. Early man built temples to the heavenly figures that he worshipped as gods. The myths and pictographs of antiquity clearly show that, at one time, our eyes saw a vastly different sky from the one astronomers view in their instruments today. ...

A number of observations suggest that catastrophic cometary or meteoritic impacts around the same time also affected the Pacific basin: Maori legends of great fires destroying forests and the moa bird, to be associated ...

269. Cuban Prehistory [Journals] [Kronos]
... Unlike the great cosmological civilizations, of what the first Iberian conquerors and explorers called Tierra Firme, the Indian peoples of Cuba and adjacent islands of the Caribbean left no vast monumental ritual and urban centers, nor did they possess any system of inscriptions such as the Mayan glyphs that still tantalize scholars, ranging from classical archaeology to computational cryptology. Strangely, in view of the proximity of Cuba's westernmost extension to the Yucatan peninsula, there is not the slightest evidence of any contact between the Maya and the Cuban aborigines. Nor, are their traditions, legends, and myths available to us. As peoples, the Cuban aborigines ceased to exist within the first century after the Spanish conquest ...

From: SIS Internet Digest 2001:1 (Jun 2001) Home | Issue Contents Electrostatics & Dust on Eros CCNet: 23 Feb 2001 I have read informal reports quoting Joe Veverka, a leading planetary researcher at Cornell, that there is something strange about the distribution of dust accumulation in craters on Eros. Now, I haven't examined any data or seen any pictures yet. But I would speculate that we may be dealing here with an interesting phenomenon of electrostatic dust transport. I discussed it in papers in Icarus around 1960 +/ - - a year or two. [I don't have the papers at hand.] The idea is the following An airless body in ...
