However, contrary to what Stiebing suggests, these ordinately improbable collision and near-collision events are still presented as scientifically plausible. These collisions are still presented throughout the literature of astronomy as events that probably did occur. Stiebing's entire argument is worthless in the face of this evidence. So, in response to Stiebing's view that improbability is a method of science ... the improbability of a number of such collisions [between the protoplanet Venus on a cometary orbit with the Earth occurring within historical times....

47. Some Notes on Senmut's Ceiling [SIS C&C Review $]
... II No 1 (Autumn 1977) Home¦ Issue Contents Some Notes on Senmut's Ceiling Malcolm Lowery Editor, S.I.S. Review The ceiling of the tombs of Senmut, decorated with astronomical charts, is characterised by "irrational orientation", which Velikovsky takes as support for a historical interchange of the poles. The background to this is outlined here as an introduction ... oddities in the particular examples dealt with here. A later paper in this issue offers a detailed interpretation of these, which I hope will stimulate the close collaboration between specialists in astronomy and Egyptology which Pogo sees as necessary. A number of threads are ravelled up in Velikovsky's brief references, and a study of the Isis article reveals a fascinating and complex subject ... Senmut by Mr A. Pogo of Cambridge (Mass.). The article is especially interesting and most suggestive. It insists more than once on the necessity of having an astronomer and an Egyptologist undertake a study of the documents which have come down to us of the astronomical science of Ancient Egypt. The author suggests the use of a Zeiss planetarium to ...

... to dismiss the tablets as fiction, Kugler proved that they are a report of actual observations.

To the words impossible and improbable of this statement, I can object that its logical meaning is incomprehensible.

Kugler's investigation convinced the academic world that these tablets had to be accepted as containing the record of actual observations.
