According to their analyses of ancient myths and other records, within human memory the Earth ... Tangun's capital, in order to perform ancestral rites. Today, according to Zong In-sob (1982), "Tangun's Cave" is honored at Mt. Myohyang and Tangun's "historical relics" can be seen on Kanghwa Island at the mouth of the Han River, near Seoul.

... and fifth months, say, it would be called the fourth intercalary month. The starting point for the numbering of months in the civil calendar was changed several times in Chinese history. Exact knowledge of the calendar dates only from Han times (ca. 202 B.C .-220 A.D.). Intercalations in the T'ai ch'u calendar were regulated in such a way ... assume the existence of a year zero. Thus, the astronomical year +687 equals 687 A.D., but -687 is actually 688 B.C. Velikovsky here was referring to the historical year 687 B.C. He employed a number of locutions including "minus" to avoid "B.C.", with its religious connotations.

15. Velikovsky and Catastrophism: A Hidden Agenda? [SIS C&C Review $]
... . The first and most obvious is the scientific climate in Europe in the last half of the nineteenth century. In a word, if Lyell and Darwin were correct about the history of geology and biology, the Bible was false. If speculation about the size and age of the universe, the distances of stars and the structure of heavenly systems was correct ... narrow our focus to 19th-century Russian Judaism and finally to the individual, we will be able to perceive that everything Velikovsky wrote, his scientific and psychological books as well as his historical reconstructions, may derive from this single over-riding nexus. If true, this will place the Velikovsky story in a significant new light. To deduce Velikovsky's stance vis-a-vis Judaism, we ... the modern Jew is to be seen as at least having one foot in each camp, the shtetl and the laboratory, the Torah and the textbooks.

Then there was Moses' Yahweh whose imprimatur ... , involving other shepherds and the damsels Rachel and Zipporah, suggest a deliberate embellishment to tie Moses to his ancestor Jacob.

(12) The function of myth, consequently, is to provide a logical form of mediation between apparent or real contradictions. Viewed from this brief historical perspective, Velikovsky's thesis can be seen as forming a logical variation upon the nature-allegory school of comparative mythology.
