Comet Venus


In the 1950s, Immanuel Velikovsky propounded catastrophism in several popular books including the bestselling Worlds in Collision. He speculated that the ‘planet’ Venus was in fact a former comet which had been ejected from Jupiter. Subsequently, 3,500 years ago, it made two catastrophically close passes by Earth 52 years apart. It later interacted with Mars, which had a series of near collisions with Earth ending in 687 BCE, before finally settling into its current orbit.

Was Velikovsky correct, did Venus appear as a gigantic comet in ancient times?

Comet Venus is the second book in the God King Scenario Series. The first book, An Ancient World in Chaos, presented a fascinating model whereby Mars, Venus, Mercury and the Moon played havoc with Earth for an incredible 3,000 years, coming so close they loomed larger than the Sun. In support of such incredible claims, Gilligan calls upon the most fascinating civilisation of ancient times – the Ancient Egyptians. He proposes that the divine god-kings of Pharaonic Egypt were first and foremost guises of planetary bodies as they appeared to move back and forth to Earth. He further proposes that these heavenly monarchs were represented by human ‘doubles’ – mortal Pharaohs who were believed to be earthly manifestations of god-king planets.

The primary objective of Comet Venus is to vindicate Velikovsky and conclusively demonstrate that the comet images on the front and back covers of this book have nothing whatsoever to do with the Sun! They are exact physical representations of the planet Venus as it took on the attributes of a comet in the skies above Earth only a few thousand years ago.

Nexus Magazine which has over a million subscribers worldwide have informed me that my latest book "Extraterrestrial Sands" is being reviewed in their Oct-Nov 2016 issue.

For all those building sand castles on the beach at the moment - you are in fact using tiny fragments of rock from Mars!

Gary Gilligan

Gary Gilligan was born in 1957 in Birmingham, UK. With an interest in music, Gary spent the first part of his working life as a professional drummer. This was a colourful occupation where he gained valuable life experience. He travelled the four corners of the globe, working on a variety of cruise ships and experiencing many cultures. Eventually he settled down and set up his own flooring contractor business in London which he still runs successfully after 20 years. He also resides in London with his family and spends his spare time researching and writing.

Throughout his life, Gary has studied Egyptology, Astronomy and Geology with an almost obsessive passion. When he first came across the theory of catastrophism, he was intrigued by the possibility that the Solar System had undergone recent upheavals due to cosmic chaos. This led to years of dedicated research. Taking Immanuel Velikovsky's bestseller 'Worlds in Collision' as a starting point, and in light of recent corroboratory discoveries in science and ancient history, Gary is more confident than ever that the time is right to present catatrophism as a credible theory to the general public.

As he so often reiterates: "It's about time people were made aware of the fact that Mars and Venus came very close to Earth only a few thousand years ago causing many global catastrophes."
