Of all things that separate TMG from all others, is the fact that we have absolutely never subscribed to the dirty snowball theory.
Commentary by gary d. goodwin

In fact, we have time and time again supported the McCanney Model - the electromagnetic comet.
The following is the abstract and preface from McCanney's paper, THE NATURE AND ORIGIN OF COMETS AND THE EVOLUTION OF CELESTIAL BODIES

ABSTRACT: This paper provides an alternate theory for comet behavior and shows comets to be planetary, lunar, and asteroidal bodies in their formative stages. It demonstrates that tail matter is attracted towards an asteroidal comet nucleus by strong electrical forces. Additionally, two charging mechanisms are identified, both of which produce a net negative charge on the comet nucleus. This is supported by data from recent space probes. Comet wandering, sunward spikes, a shrinkage of the coma as the comet approaches the Sun, curved tails, the gathering and maintenance of meteoroid streams, spiraling of tail material, and the rapid orbital circularization of large newly captured comets are also discussed.

Earlier papers(1,2,3) used similar concepts to predict the existence of strong electrical fields in the vicinity of Saturn, showing Saturn and its ring system to be analogous to the Sun and its zodiacal disk. The realization of the proton windsupported capacitors of Saturn and the Sun led to a number of unexpected theoretical considerations that included 1) the recognition of the charging process used by comets, 2) the postulation of an ion and dust cloud held back by solar wind pressure near the orbit of Jupiter(4) - which is one source of comet tail matter - and 3) a postulated electric dipole red-shift in photons leaving the central star. Still another theoretical result was the possibility of an electrically induced magnetic dynamo powered by a planet spinning inside the orbit of a slightly charged moon. Empirical correlation between moons and magnetic fields has been known for some time,(5) though the wandering of out Moon has remained an unsolved mystery.(6, 7)

An attempt is made to explain solar system formation from the time a newly formed twin star system leaves the galactic center(l) to when it develops its solar system by the capture of comets. The reader's knowledge of planetary encounter and N-body literature is assumed since it is basic to the paper but unreferenced. However, the text by T. J. J. See,(6) which develops the first capture theory for the origin of the solar system (OSS), is indispensable. A major result of this paper is also the quantization of'Newtonian space. Finally, the link between planetary formation, geomagnetic reversals, and biological evolution is examined.

This paper was produced during the 1979-80, 1980-81 academic years while the author was a lecturer in the Physics and Mathematics Departments of Cornell University (Ithaca, N. Y.) Only minor grammatical changes have been made for publication and numerous footnotes have been added for clarification. The article is a condensed version of a 450 page manuscript (Origin of the Planets, Comet Capture Processes in the Formation of Solar Systems, also by the author) which further develops each aspect of the new comet theory. Although it was never intended, the theory explains Velikovsky's claims of Venus transforming from a comet into a planet and is supported by data from recent space probes.

Since 1982, with the analysis of data from the Pioneer I I /Voyager 1/Voyager 11 missions to the outer planets and the Pioneer Venus/ Russian Venera probes, the trend even among established astrophysicists has markedly turned towards catastrophism based on celestial events (these have been mainly variations on the "colliding asteroid" theory). In spite of this trend and a wealth of new data on electromagnetic phenomena, mainstream astrophysicists continue to maintain that gravity is the only force in the cosmos and to support long standing theories such as the Big Bang, the nebular collapse theory for the origin of the solar system, the greenhouse effect, the ice ball comet model, and General Relativity (all of which are shown to contain theoretical inconsistencies in this paper).

As the data arrived from around the solar system, the author witnessed repeated efforts within the space science community (primarily NASA) to ignore the importance of electrical phenomena. If the data did not fit into the established theoretical picture, after-the-fact theories were contrived to force-fit the data, or the data were simply not dealt with at all. It should have been apparent that the data were unquestionably contradictory to any expectations of traditional theory and that a radically new set of self-consistent concepts would be needed. Part I is the first of a three part series which develops a new theory for comet behavior and solar system evolution. Many may wonder why a new theory is necessary; thus Part I begins with a brief critique of presently "accepted" astronomical theory and is followed by an introduction to the new comet theory.

This theory is now being proved out by the very scientists that have scoffed for years at the idea. There is some doubt that the satellite Deep Space 1 even went to the comet Borrelly, however, the admission that this comet has no water is proof that comets are NOT dirty snowballs. In fact the Dirty Snowball Theory is finished. Comets are not snow bearing mud balls. They are in fact highly charged asteroids, racing through the solar system. The charge is created by the impact of charged plasma upon the body of the planet. The tail is created by the attraction of the plasma to the charged body. Don't let them fool you... when comet Borrelly last came through our inner solar system it had a tail and in these pictures - IT HAS A TAIL! So... no ice-no tail, according to their theory. Yet there's the tail! In front of our very eyes! McCanney's theory... no ice-yes tail! It's electrically produced.

This theory (now with another feather of proof in its cap) is the bane of current and traditional science and may very well be the straw that breaks the back of nonobjective science and the violation of the scientific method. The proving out of this idea, brings into question many ideas of science that have wrongly been accepted as truth. Ideas such as Darwin's Evolution and carbon dating, are all affected by the truths in this finding.

The following article was provided to a pro-NASA news agency. Unfortunately the details of the discovery are not available to us, the very research organization that has supported the truth about comets. We are left to find out the results of these multimillion dollar tax payer supported projects through newspaper articles and proprietary reports published years after the discoveries. Just another way that the status quo of science pushes aside and blocks inventive and creative thinking from the "in-group" of science. They take, steal and twist the ideas of those that are truthful and right into self serving propaganda, feeding it to the masses as if it were their own hard work and design.

Remember... the following article is an example of the uniformitarian modern day scientist's attempt, after suddenly discovering their wrong and our right, to take full credit and ownership of an idea that was held as a truth by others for eons. Please read on with a skeptic and clear head.

Deep Space 1 finds Comet Borrelly
has hot, dry surface

Posted: April 7, 2002

Comets are sometimes described as "dirty snowballs," but a close flyby of one by NASA's
Deep Space 1 spacecraft last fall detected no frozen water on its surface.

Comet Borrelly has plenty of ice beneath its tar-black surface, but any exposed to sunlight has
vaporized away, say scientists analyzing data from Deep Space 1, managed by NASA's Jet
Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif.
"The spectrum suggests that the surface is hot and dry. It is surprising that we saw no traces
of water ice," said Dr. Laurence Soderblom of the U.S. Geological Survey's Flagstaff, Ariz.,
station, lead author of a report on the Borrelly flyby results appearing in the online edition of
the journal Science.
"We know the ice is there," he said. "It's just well- hidden. Either the surface has been dried
out by solar heating and maturation or perhaps the very dark soot-like material that covers
Borrelly's surface masks any trace of surface ice."
The Deep Space 1 science team released pictures and other initial findings days after the
spacecraft flew within 2,171 kilometers (1,349 miles) of the comet's solid nucleus on
September 22, 2001. This week's report provides additional details about the nucleus and the
surrounding coma of gases and dust coming off of the comet as measured by one of Deep
Space 1's scientific instruments.
"Comet Borrelly is in the inner solar system right now, and it's hot, between 26 and 71
degrees Celsius (80 and 161 degrees Fahrenheit), so any water ice on the surface would
change quickly to a gas, " said Dr. Bonnie Buratti, JPL planetary scientist and co-author of the
paper. "As the components evaporate, they leave behind a crust, like the crust left behind by
dirty snow."
Borrelly is unusually dark for an object in the inner solar system. The comet's surface is about
as dark as a blot of photocopy toner, possibly the darkest surface in the solar system. It is
more like objects in the outer solar system such as the dark side of Saturn's moon Iapetus and
the rings of Uranus.
"It seems to be covered in this dark material, which has been loosely connected with biological
material." Buratti said. "This suggests that comets might be a transport mechanism for
bringing the building blocks of life to Earth." Comets may have played an important role in
supplying organic materials that are required for life to originate.
Soderblom points out that Borrelly's old, mottled terrain with dark and very dark spots --
different shades of black -- are apparently inactive. Ground-based observations estimated that
90 percent of Borrelly's surface might be inactive, and the observations taken by Deep Space 1
show that this is indeed true.
"It's remarkable how much information Deep Space 1 was able to gather at the comet,
particularly given that this was a bonus assignment for the probe," said Dr. Marc Rayman,
project manager of the mission. Deep Space 1 completed its original goal to test 12 new space
technologies and then earned extra credit by achieving additional goals, such as the risky
Borrelly flyby. "It's quite exciting now as scientists working with this rich scientific harvest
turn data into knowledge."
Deep Space 1 was launched in October 1998 as part of NASA's New Millennium Program,
which is managed by JPL for NASA's Office of Space Science, Washington, D.C. The
California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, manages JPL for NASA.
