... text says, "If the stars (in) their fall are many[" (von Soden, 1959+, 657 sub miqtu). A possible reference to meteors falling repeatedly occurs in a text translated below, p. 121 (Virolleaud, 1905+; Supp. 2, 65 line 6). Two lines from another section of Enuma Anu Enlil (Virolleaud, 1905+, Adad 17), where the context mentions stars, possibly refer to a meteor shower from a bolide: 33. [If Adad thunders and seven (stars) fall: that means, they burst into flames, (no apodosis given). 38. [If... seven of them fall down: bad weather will destroy the temple. Other lines in this section look interesting, but are broken and difficult to translate. The fact that a number of stars are mentioned may indicate that originally a meteor shower was observed. The repeated use of the exact number, seven, is open to additional interpretation, however. There is another text which ...

2. The Two Babylons: The Great Red Dragon [SIS Internet Digest $]
... not only by the sword and bodily strength, but by magic and by means derived from the secret instructions of the Chaldeans. When it is known that the historical Cyclops are, by the historian Castor, traced up to the very time of Saturn or Belus, the first king of Babylon, and when we learn that Jupiter (who was worshipped in the very same character as Ninus, "the child"), when fighting against the Titans, "received from the Cyclops aid" by means of "dazzling lightnings and thunders," we may have some pretty clear idea of the magic arts derived from the Chaldean Mysteries, which Ninus employed against the Bactrian king. There is evidence that, down to a late period, the priests of the Chaldean Mysteries knew the composition of the formidable Greek fire, which burned under water, and the secret of which has been lost; and there can be little doubt that Nimrod, in erecting his power, availed himself of such or similar scientific secrets, which he and his associates alone possessed. ...

R 16:17-18 And the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. Black Rain PV 1: 3 A heavy resin fell from the sky... This was to punish them because they had not thought of their mother, nor their father, the Heart of Heaven, called Huracan. And for this reason the face of the earth was darkened and a black rain began to fall, by day and by night. PV ...

Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 67: Jan-Feb 1990 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Possible Ball Lightning In Ankara June 14, 1988. Ankara, Turkey. "Another phenomenon occurred on 14 June in Ankara: May and June are usually very showery and thundery in central Anatolia and this year is no exception. However, the previous few days had been unusually stormy here in Ankara, and on the 14th the second thunderstorm of the day was in progress with curtains of rain and flickers of lightning, a few kilometres away to the north-west. The storm was moving towards us and the squally wind had already begun. I was again watching the weather from my office, which is on the fifth floor, when I was suddenly distracted by the appearance of a very bright, circular flash of blue-purple light (perhaps one metre or less in diameter), which persisted for about two seconds and then silently 'popped out,' leaving behind a puff of smoke, which then drifted away. The flash ...

... charge, magnetism, and gravity responsible for the distances between sun, planets, and other elements of the solar system. When the earth will gain an orbit nearer to the sun it will receive more heat. We can compare this with Isaiah 30:26; the fulfillment of both prophecies can be synchronized. And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying: It is done. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there were a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, ...

6. The Deluge in Rabbinical Sources [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... and for an entire year the planets did not follow their regular courses. (3) It may be that because of dust discharged by volcanoes the sky remained veiled for a long period, and this veil made any celestial orientation impossible for the few survivors; but quite possibly the statement refers to a change in the celestial orbits. The rabbinical sources add that the earth was quaking, and the sun was darkened, and the foundations of the cosmos were dislodged. The entire world was in volcanic activity; ? amidst lightnings and thunders a very loud sound was heard in the entire world, never heard before.? (4) The Flood was caused by waters pouring from above, but also by waters drawn up from the ground. ? All the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and all the windows of heaven were opened.? (5) The waters that came from the sky were heated. Many passages in the rabbinical literature refer to the heated water. (6) The rabbinical literature also refers to great tides and surges ...

7. BOLTS FROM THE BLUE [Quantavolution Website]
... XIV: 412 ff.: Telamonian Ajax picks up a stone and throws it at Hector, making him spin round like a top. He falls, just as an oak tree falls under the attack of father Zeus, and a great smell of sulphur comes from it. Note: rhombos, a top; also strombos. Vergil, Aeneid V: 319: fulminis alis: Nisus, in the race, is swifter than the wings of a thunderbolt. Aeneid VIII: 524: Evander promises help to Aeneas, and Venus thunders and lightens. Weapons are seen in the sky, and trumpets sound. Pausanias V: 11: 9: When Pheidias had finished his statue of Zeus, he prayed for a sign of approval. A bolt struck the pavement. (A bronze urn was still there when Pausanias visited the place). Hesiod, Catalogue of Women: Zeus laid low Eetion with a flaming bolt because he tried to seize Demeter. Frazer, The Golden Bough, mentions the name "thunder besom," given to mistletoe, and suggests ...

... earth history.... The magnitude of the devastation cannot be underestimated... Whatever the nature of the event that we are dealing with, it was of cataclysmic proportions."(23)) Many descriptions in Worlds in Collision parallel events first depicted in Donnelly's book. "We shall see," Donnelly states, "that many of the legends tell us that, as the comet approached the earth, that is, as it entered our atmosphere and combined with it, it gave forth world appalling noises, thunders beyond all earthly thunders, roarings, howlings, and hissings, that shook the globe."(24) As Donnelly points out, "This... terrible noise... would necessarily result from the carbureted hydrogen of the comet exploding in our atmosphere."(25) This event, in Donnelly's reconstruction, is followed by "tremendous electrical action," or lightning-like discharges, between the two atmospheres, the comet's and the Earth's, which ancient man recorded in his myths "as the arrows of the ...

... , and licked up the water that was in the trench.-- I Kings 18:38. It is supposed that Elijah's beef was well-done to a blackened sizzle. In the Assyrian story of Noah's Flood, the Epic of Gilgamesh, one finds that fire and water, which usually don't mix, in fact were mixing during that occasion of what we know to be the closest of all of the 170 Mars flybys: The fixed time arrived With the first glow of dawn, a black cloud arose Inside it the storm-god thunders The god of the underworld tears out the posts of the dam The warrior-god leads the waters on The gods raise THE TORCHES, SETTING THE LAND ON FIRE WITH THEIR BLAZE. (October 24, 2484 B.C.E.?) (Mars "rising" ?) (Lightning shock waves?) (Sea level tidal waves?) (Indian Ocean tides sweeping Iran-Iraq?)

... than to the rain. The Epic of Gilgamesh is source material from an Assyrian library, dating to 900 B.C. It is parallel to the biblical story, except that it is in the first person singular and has more detail: The fixed time arrived.... I looked at the pattern of the weather, The weather was terrifying to see. I boarded the ship and closed the door.... With the first glow of dawn, A black cloud rose up from the horizon. Inside it the storm-god thunders.... The god of the underworld tears out the posts of the dam. The warrior-god leads the waters on. 6 The waters "led on," it is presumed, were not the sudden rain, but were comprised of massive tides from the Indian Ocean. But the rain was a significant contribution. Theory Number Two, sixthly, is harmonious with Talmudic source material. The following quotation, while not of Mosaic origin, is probably neo-Babylonian, Assyrian, or Persian, and was acquired during the Babylonian ...
