with a message from KEIR DULLEA
This is Comyns Beaumont's first book, outlining his theory of cometary accretion of the Earth and its atmosphere.
Published under the pseudonym 'Appian Way' in 1925, 'The Riddle of the Earth' traces the notable eruptions, storms, earthquakes, landslides and meteor impacts of the time and draws them into a single scheme.
He presents his reasons for regarding weather, volcanic and seismic activity, meteor strikes and even such forteana as rains of frogs, fish and insects as parts of one single phenomenon which is The Riddle of the Earth.
Comyns Beaumont takes his evidence not only from actual meteorological phenomena otherwise unexplained, but also from Plato, Aristotle, Homer, Josephus, Caesar and the Bible among others. He strips away the false divisions between academic disciplines, brings ancient astronomical knowledge back into play and mathematically completely overturns the long-accepted version of the history of our planet and the systems within systems through which it operates in the wider cosmos, describing clearly how the regard for the operation of the male and female creative principles has been criminally misrepresented as phallic worship. Watch the skies!
