Jupiter is an example of the current depth of knowledge of the planets in academia. The composition of the most obvious, visible feature, the varied colored clouds that surround the planet remains unknown. The darker ones have been classified as ‘bands’ and the lighter as ‘zones’, but after thirty years of probes no elements have been measured. The gravity system has not found the heavy solid core which attracted all of that gas. Neither has any scientist produced the high pressure electrically conductive hydrogen state thought to compose the interior. The cause of the permanent auroral ovals has never been measured descending to the poles nor has the excess temperature or the equatorial ‘lump’ in the magnetosphere. The composition of the “inner radiation belt” has not been identified, merely evaded. Lighter clouds are assumed to be frozen ammonia, because they cannot be identified, but this is just a guess. This is reminiscent of the ‘classification’ of giant planets as gaseous. Articles keep telling us how much we are learning about Jupiter, i.e. the data is piling up but its time to look at it from a new perspective.

Fig. 1 Mars geostationary above the Himalayas with Agni extending down toward the Earth from the firmament.

As explained in my new book, “The Cosmic Origin of the Rig Veda”, Mars became captured in a geostationary orbit above Mt. Kailas one hundred times in a cyclic process designed to transfer all of its life to the Earth. The same process was repeated at each capture so one hundred generations of mankind witnessed the same sequence. Different cultures interpret the same features in slightly different stories, but the common origin makes it possibles to see the planet as it actually appeared.

As Mars approached, it could be seen to have green land areas and lakes. The Egyptians called Mars (Horus) “the Great green”. Those lakes were the fresh water aspect on Mars. But when it entered its geostationary orbit, the gravity of the Earth drew all the water in the northern hemisphere toward Mars’ north pole which remained facing the Earth, (in order that the Tharsis anomaly on the equator would remain equidistant from the Earth), covering the side facing the Earth. This was the source of the ‘peaceful’ merging of salt Tiamat and fresh water story.

The more chaotic version was that the same tidal effect of the Earth caused hundreds of volcanoes to erupt across the northern hemisphere facing the Earth which rose right up thru the ocean.  As a result, Tiamat and the Egyptian version Nut are shown stretching over Mars (not the Earth) covered with ‘stars’, called the circum-polar stars in the RigVeda due to Mars slow counter clockwise about its north pole facing the Earth  More slowly rock beneath the ocean facing the Earth was melted and a glowing sphere of magma expanded, which could be seen in the waters, called the “world egg”.

When it broke the surface, it formed an island, called the firmament, raqia, in the Bible.  The lava flow continued upward from the center of the island becoming manifest as a hardened lava column Absu apparently penetrating Tiamat (see Figure 1) which eventually extended to thousands of km down toward the Earth. However, it was also imagined to be a female feature Asherah in Canaanite texts. It was called Brahm, the extender, in the RigVeda, also Purusha the male aspect of Prajapati, the creator, leading to Brahma in the later Hindu Trimurti. In fact, the tidal covering of Mars in the RigVeda was attributed to Prajapati “cloving his bladder”.

The column became the dominant feature (god) for all cultures because it had flaming hair and was believed in the RigVeda to communicate all of the Soma smoke from their sacrificial fires to the other gods. This was Marduk in Mesopotamian texts, Yggdrasil , in Norse myth, Osiris in Egyptian myth,.the upside-down tree of the Shamans, the axis mundi. Large convulsions within Mars would sometimes collapse the ‘tree’ but it would reform. When Isis, the moon passed through alignments with Mars convulsions would blast meteorites, soil, water, Soma, intoxicating deposits containing sprouts of plants found on the ground every morning around the world. The largest convulsions would shatter the tree and shoot rapid fire streams of glowing large bodies from deep in Mars, such as the fourteen that struck the near side of the Moon forming the maria.

The Unique Shape of Mars

•September 12, 2019 • Comments Off on The Unique Shape of Mars

Fig. 1 Obvious dichotomy between northern third and southern two thirds of Mars.

An article from the Lunar and Planetary Institute 1996 titled The Shape of Mars and the Topographic Signature of the Hemispheric Dichotomy reveals the unique shape that can only be explained by Cyclic Catastrophism.  “The surface of Mars is distinctly different in the northern and southern hemispheres. The south is old and heavily cratered whereas the north is younger and lightly cratered.” The obvious hemispheric dichotomy is characterized by a geologic boundary that is expressed as knobby and fretted terrains and detached plateaus. “The formation of the dichotomy has been attributed to internal processes such as postaccretional core formation, among others.  The lack of gravity anomalies along the boundary may indicate thick crust beneath the southern highlands and thinner crust beneath the northern highlands.” These result in the center of the reference ellipsoid (COF) being offset from Mars Center of Mass (COM) by 3081 +/- 60 meters along the Z axis and the south pole is 6 km farther from the COM than is the north pole.

The authors are amazed that “The obvious hemispheric dichotomy (Figure 1) characterized by a geologic boundary expressed as knobby and fretted terrains and detached plateaus.” does not show up in their improved macroscopic gravity and accurate symmetric figure measurements. One suggested solution, postaccretional core formation is closest to the truth, except that Mars has no core.

Cyclic Catastrophism explains why the planet is so close to a perfect shape. Mars was captured in a geostationary orbit for 14.4 years and then escaped for 15.6 years between 3687 and 687 BC. Each escape involved the ejection of its solid iron core which zoomed around the Earth and caught up to the gapeing shell and re-entered eight days later, while everyone on Earth watched.  But at the conclusion of the 100th encounter the solid core was deflected by Venus and did not return to Mars, so Mars contracted with its molten interior in the last 2,500 years, forming the near-perfect shape of the planet which perfectly balanced the masses on the surface. Of course the solid iron core of Mars became the solid iron planet Mercury, with a smattering of sulfur from the mantle of Mars on its surface. All of the craters now on its surface were ejected from Mars back when it orbited the Earth.

Significance of the Moon

•July 24, 2019 • Comments Off on Significance of the Moon

Surprisingly, planetary science professes and teaches that the solar system has not changed for 4.5 billion years. But unable to conceive of a capture scenario, consensus science believes (a religious concept) that the Moon formed when a huge body impacted the early Earth. As a result, both the new Earth and Moon became molten, but because of the greater mass of the Earth, the Moon should have collected 20 times less highly siderophile elements than the Earth. Alas, Apollo rocks reveal that the Moon has 1,000 times less of these iron-loving elements, casting doubt on the impact model.

Of course this problem was attacked by building a computer model of the impact and varying impactor masses, velocities, and angles, but the best improvement it gives is one third less HSE than previously estimated on the Moon, hardly making a dent in the 1,000 times shortage measured. The author muses “This strikingly low value changes previous considerations on the Moon’s late accretionary history …”

Capture of the Moon

The Moon was captured from a planet called Metis in Greek myth only 12,000 years before the present in the Younger Dryas, a 1,300-year period during which a number of encounters caused enormous destruction on the Earth. The dates obtained from the GRIP Greenland ice cores are questionable because periods of unusual warmth are not recorded and temperatures are based on isotope ratios which would have changed continuously as the atmosphere of Mars was blasted to the Earth between 3687 and 687 BC.  Claims like. “The GRIP ice core is especially important because the ages of the ice at various levels in the core has been determined by the counting down of annual layers in the ice, giving a very accurate chronolgoy, and climatic fluctuations have been determined by measurement of oxygen isotope ratios.” Now to claim that the ice cores contain a continuous record of 12,000 countable yearly layers is not plausible.  Velikovsky cites ancient tribes whose cultural memory included a time before the Moon shown.  The Hebrew Tanakh states that YHWH paired the Moon with the Sun.

The best evidence for the capture scenario lies in the fact that the warm Holocene era begins at the end of the YD, due to the stabilization of the Earth’s spin axis. Another effect not imagined was the overturning of the entire lithosphere of the Earth twice during the YD. This was the first step in the destruction of all ancient, dinosaur, neanderthal life on Earth. These overturnings did not change the rotational velocity, merely inverted the spin axis of the lithosphere. Plato relates that Egyptian priests told Solon the Greek that in their cultural history the the sun rose where it once set four times. Amerind cultures have the same myth of “four Suns”. The  first two overturnings occurred in the Younger Dryas.  These inversions caused tidal waves across entire continents moving at a thousand miles per hour driving ahead of them huge tumbling boulders like the teeth of a horizon-to-horizon monster. and left the land covered with layers of ocean-bottom material seen by modern seismic techniques as Low Velocity Zones beneath the continents of the Earth.

Two additional inversions of the lithosphere resulted from close passes of proto-Venus, the first of which scorched the Earth from the Sahara to the Himalayas, evidenced by the largest scar on the face of the Earth. The second occurred as proto-Venus sheparded the living world of Mars to an orbit intersecting that of the Earth, beginning the terra-forming of the Earth for the next 3,000 years, the Vedic Period.

The Moon brought HSE elements to the Earth

The Moon had been captured because its alignments with Mars during the Vedic period were needed to cause convulsions within Mars that blasted, via hundreds of vocanos, hails of meteorites  (the siderophile elements) to the Earth, along with great clouds of its atmosphere carrying red soil, water, and Soma, manna in the Bible, haoma in the Avesta, ambrosia and nectar in Greek myth and sacred mlk in Egyptian texts, proving that this intoxicating dew which carried living sprouts of all the vegetation we have today fell to the Earth for thousands of years.  In the Vedas, Soma was declared a god because its intoxication allowed the people to see the world in a better light, just as it does today. The Moon was indeed paired with the Sun because having exactly equal diameters, solar eclipses aligned with Mars caused the most enormous convulsions blasting the greatest masses of the siderophile elements from deep within Mars.

Agni is the messenger and mediator between Earth and Heaven, announcing to the gods the hymns, and conveying to them the oblations of their worshippers, inviting them with the sound of his crackling flames and bringing them down to the place of sacrifice. As concentrating in himself the various sacrificial duties of different classes of human priests. Agni is called the purohita or great high priest. He is a priest or minister who sacrifices at the proper seasons and a hotar, an invoking priest, a herald who calls the gods to enjoy the offering. All riches are at his disposal, and he is the most beautiful rewarder, both directly and indirectly, of the pious whose oblations he carries to the gods.

Fig. Maelstrom on top of Mars Northern Island 3 km above surrounding terrain


Since you are a planetary scientist, perhaps you could explain how the maelstrom or whirlpool the size of Texas climbed 3 km to the top of the northern island at the north pole of Mars and why has the subterranean radar SHARAD data showing the flow of the water into the large vent at the pole has not been reported. The composers of the RigVeda wrote about this maelstrom happening ninety-nine times and called the vent “the navel of the Earth”, where “Earth” has been mistranslated until now, really meant the heavy version of Mars (still had its solid core), which was in a geostationary orbit 35,000 km above Mt. Kailas, off and on for 3,000 years (3687 to 687 BC).

The answer to the above question is: The direct tidal effect of the Earth combined with the indirect tidal effect of the Sun, Moon and Venus in an eccentric orbit on the far side at a vernal equinox raised the northern ocean, which NASA calls the Oceanus Borealis, and it cascaded into the core of Mars, flashed to steam and ejected the solid core. This was the mechanism, described in Irish ancient texts, by which the Harp was separated from Dagda, Hermes (known as the inventor of the lyre) or Canopus (the steersman) was separated from ArgoHathor from Horus and SaramA from Indra. Proving that the entire world observed these spectacular events.

The funerary text of Pepi I relates that it took eight days for the ejected core to zoom low around the Earth in a slingshot maneuver, catch up and rejoin Mars, some cultures say nine nights, The Jews mark the eight days in the festival of the Seder. Then in 687 BC, Venus deflected the solid core of Mars and the two drifted into the inner solar system (guess what they call the solid core now) and Mars collapsed in on itself, obeying the laws of conservation of energy and angular momentum went out to its freezing orbit. Oh, by the way, these 99 encounters were the means by which the current crust and all flora we enjoy today covered the Earth.

This is how far modern geology and astrophysics are from the truth.

Rig Veda Extends Velikovsky’s to 3000 Years

•July 18, 2019 • Comments Off on Rig Veda Extends Velikovsky’s to 3000 Years


Fig. 1. Orbits of Earth, Mars and proto-Venus out of which Mars was captured.

Immanuel Velikovsky using ancient texts from many sources (Worlds in Collision 1950) argued that both Venus and Mars had close encounters with Earth between 1000 and 700 BC. He noted the dates of a number of recorded raash, translated “earthquakes, commotions” in Strong’s Biblical Concordance, at intervals of fourteen and sixteen years. He did understand why there were two different intervals. Of all the ancient texts from different cultures, the RigVeda and the Vishnu Purana provide the reason for the two intervals, because they emphasize that during the Vedic Period the Earth experienced cyclic events, each of which comprised a kalpa and a pralaya, called in the Hindu Vishnu Purana a day of Brahma and a night of Brahma, which were said to be of ‘equal’ duration, but adds that Brahma lived 100 “holy days”, implying that there were 100 cycles. But Velikovsky went further, noting the days of the year, Nov 1st and the vernal equinox, Mar 21, when the raash occurred.

The Cosmic Origin of the RigVeda

Thinking astronomically, the two days of the year make sense . If Mars was in an orbit which crossed that of the Earth, it would cross it in two places defined by these dates as shown in the Figure. If Mars (Indra in the RigVeda) were captured in an orbit of the Earth on Nov. 1st and released on Mar 21st fourteen years later, then the length of the capture period and the release periods would not be an integer number of years. Thus the primitive Aryans would have had difficulty defining it numerically and just adopted a word manvantara, until now a mysterious word in the RigVeda somehow associated with the number fourteen, for this period. Every Aryan, indeed everyone on Earth, knew this period because the visits of Indra completely dominated all cultures on Earth. Using these dates, it is possible to get a closer estimate of the kalpa, 14.4-years and 15.6-years for the pralaya which add up to 30 years per cycle. The allows the accurate estimate of the entire Vedic Period to 3,000 years, consistent with the 3,000 years of the Olympic Gods of Greece and the Pharaonic Dynasties of the Egyptians

The Hindu culture post-dated the Vedic Period and therefore it is logical to accept the statement in the Vishnu Purana that Brahma lived “one hundred holy days”.  It is doubtful based upon several statements in the Vishnu Purana that the authors did really conceive what happened during the Vedic Period, because no deity named Brahma was mentioned in the RigVeda, only a term, brahm was used in the sense of “extending”. This view is reinforced by the claim in the same document, that a kalpa lasted 432 million years, but was immediately followed by a caveat that fourteen Manus reigned during a kalpa. Manu refers to human beings, therefore the Purana left us a clue to the true length which no one seems to have recognized.

Although Velikovsky collected hundreds of anecdotal clues from ancient times which he believed indicated encounters, “Collisions” in his title, of Mars with the Earth, and occasionally discussed his work during visits with Einstein in Princetons NJ, he never suspected that Mars orbited the Earth.  He also limited his thoughts to the period from 687 BC backward in time to the Exodus of the Jews from Egypt because he suspected (correctly as explained in the Cosmic Origins) a cosmic event might have been involved that early in history.  The Cosmic Origin of the Rig Veda explains in great detail the astro and geophysical of the encounters for the first time in history. The conclusions revealed go far beyond anything imagined in modern times and render all books on the planets and the Earth 6,000 years ago, obselete. .
