Hans Schindler Bellamy (1901 - 12 December 1982, poss. Vienna) was a researcher and author. His books investigate the work of Austrian cosmologist, Hans Hoerbiger and German selenographer, Philipp Fauth, whose now-defunct Cosmic Ice (Glacial Kosmogonie) Theory [1]:

"... considers the Moon to be a metallo-mineral body covered with a sphere of ice... captured out of transterrestrial space where, probably not so very long ago, it existed as an independent planet ...".
"... Hydrogen and oxygen exist in the universe in their natural combination H2O, water, in its cosmic form: ice".
"When a block of this 'Cosmic Ice' plunges into a glowing star the impact generates heat. The ice turns into steam. Thermo-chemical decomposition splits the steam into its constituents. Most of the oxygen is bound to the stellar matter, producing more heat. Practically all the hydrogen is exhaled into space. The star-matter-bound oxygen and the 'spatial' hydrogen for the vast stores out of which the Cosmic Ice is generated and its supplies repleted". (Moons, Myths and Man, 1936)

Bellamy's first book, Moons, Myths and Man, describes Hoerbiger's theory in detail, and its application to world myths, and his subsequent books develop the theory in light of biblical history, the Atlantis myth, and the Tiahuanaco ruins.

Alfred de Grazia in his book, Chaos and Creation, labels Bellamy as a prominent catastrophist.[2] And Immanuel Velikovsky cites Bellamy half a dozen times in Worlds in Collision, and in Earth in Upheaval.[3][4]

H.S. Bellamy may be a pseudonym of Hans Schindler. [5]
