61. Discussion Comments From the Floor [Aeon Journal $]
... Chronology" (AEON I:6, pp. 49-55) is an extremely curious piece of revisionist Velikovsky, with amateur psychoanalysis. While he credits Velikovsky's willingness to question biblical history-- by the example of changing one word (" firstborn")-- he ignores completely Velikovsky's much greater changes in biblical history: first, Velikovsky denied completely the ... emotional man to accomplish what Velikovsky achieved in his "treatment of the Exodus, the battles of Joshua, and the traumas of the 7th century B.C. the emotional content of historical events is restored to its proper place in the method of interpreting ancient source materials." (My emphasis.) The "armchair psychoanalyst" may inevitably reveal more about himself ... deltas of the world receive annual layers of mud; and these can (and are) traced seaward and landward, correlated into adjacent and distant terrains and used to interpret their histories. The ongoing scientific work of fifty thousand geologists cannot be so airily dismissed! After a "lesson" in elementary geology, Strickling charges pell mell into more technical quagmires: ...

... From: Proceedings of the First Seminar of Catastrophism and Ancient History (1983) Home¦ Issue Contents Were the "Sumerians of the Third Millennium" in Reality the Chaldeans of the First Millennium? Gunnar Heinsohn and Christoph Marx I. Recently, using John Dayton's analysis of faience, we have shown (Heinsohn and Marx. 1982) that "Sumerian ... is a "new" covenant in the form of time strongest possible oath. It is a promise that is entirely unconditional. The academic helplessness and perplexity in face of the historical integration of the Abraham material within the first millennium can best be documented with the no-doubt-at-present most renowned work on the history of ancient Israel (Bright, 73): "But ... , Berlin: 1980, Vol. 5.

63. Catastrophism and Anthropology [SIS C&C Review $]
... John Moores University Introduction Only 150 years ago, most of Europe's leading scholars were convinced that the ancient flood traditions and festivals originated from natural catastrophes that had occurred during man's early history. Both historians and anthropologists were able to point to a rich variety of catastrophe legends found throughout the world. For more than 2500 years these ancient traditions were generally viewed as ... . Not only did all the famous scholars of antiquity write about these natural disasters but, moreover, during the 18th and 19th century the newly established science of geology gave rise to findings and strata which clearly seemed to testify to major natural upheavals. As a consequence, scientists of Europe's enlightenment (among others Vico, Boulanger, Whiston, Cuvier) related ... or commemorated natural catastrophes have been paid relatively little attention [5. In the light of new astronomical discoveries and the emergence of scientific neo-catastrophism, it is necessary to re-evaluate the historicity and the possible effects of the ancient flood catastrophes. Since astronomy, geology and biology have finally accepted the catastrophic history of planet Earth and its inhabitants, it is time for ...

... the dilemma inherent in any theoretical analysis of a set of facts. Sir Fred Hoyle describes the form of logic which is built upon concepts unrelated to the actualities. "The history of science is riddled with examples of initially convincing theories which have been tripped up by their own predictions. During the early years of this century, for instance, an astronomer ... Velikovsky himself was a "fundamentalist," not just towards the Hebrew records, but towards the Egyptian, Arab, and Greek ones too, in his efforts to reconstruct the historical sequence. Worlds in Collision was built upon a "fundamentalist" respect for the eye-witness reliability of all the ancient cultures of the world. Again and again, whether in conventional ... anywhere near the pyramids of Giza. (4) It is particularly bizarre to see Heinsohn celebrate the building of the pyramids as heralding a new era of celestial order. Revisionist historians back to the days of Pensee have noted the colossal earthquake which shattered the lintel over one of the interior chambers of the Great Pyramid. Velikovsky himself noted that the unparalleled mass ...

... , Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings (Chilton Books, New York), 1966. A Review by Ian C. Johnson Charles H. Hapgood, a professor of the history of science at Keene State College in New Hampshire, acknowledged that his book was inspired by Captain Arlington H. Mallery, who was the first to suggest that the Piri Re'is ... . The overall shape of "Groneland" is more accurate than the portion of England shown on "The Ptolemaic Map of the North" reproduced in Hapgood's book. A major historical anomaly lies in Ptolemy's knowledge of the existence of Greenland. The 1979 edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica, Volume 7, Page 1037, informs us that Irish colonists first reached Iceland ... empty centuries can be directly attributed to artificially extended chronologies of the ancient Near East based on Egypt. He shows that these ghost centuries are in evidence in most ancient Near Eastern histories and in areas well beyond Egypt, Mesopotamia and Palestine. There can be little doubt as to the correctness of his general thesis which has very specific applicability for the archaeology of ...

... Zeus, in which the species are fixed, there is order, balance, and hierarchy." [3 I have carried the birth of the Moon back in solar system history to an astronomical catastrophe occurring even before the Age of Saturn. We hear Theopompos quoted by Plutarch: [4 "From Kronos and Aphrodite all things take their birth." ... an origin earlier than the planet Venus, because of the temporal precedence of the Moon and the definite designation of Urania, an impossible name for a later deity; long before historical nations began, Ouranos was a deus otiosus. The goddess Amphitrite Thalassa (" of the Sea") shares this epithet with Typhon and his paredra, "making one being ... , perhaps more important in the total picture? For much of the best material on the history of the disasters of the mid-second millenium B. C. comes out of the histories of Ishtar and Astarte. Sophie Lunais tells us that lunar cults are more ancient than solar, that the Moon was worshiped more than the sun, that Diana came to be ...

... remnants of the Negroid population retreated to Tierra del Fuego and their descendants interbred with the descendants of the Mongoloid conquerors. This is a perfectly feasible scenario for it mirrors the recent history of the last 2-300 years in Southern Africa.

Led army across Nubian desert, surprising and beating the ... recorded the Harbinger Event, he would have removed it from the realm of speculation into the world of hard fact. A contemporary record would not only establish the Harbinger Event as historical, but also provide strong evidence for Velikovsky's thesis that the Exodus Event was closely associated with a cosmically-induced catastrophe. However, the most cursory consideration shows that if Moses had recorded ... . Job 38:1 and 40:6. 73. Asaph in Psalm 50:3. 74. Ezekiel 1:4.

70. The Great Father [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... perceived the Heaven Man, a primordial giant whose body was the newly organized Cosmos. The legends often present the figure as the first man or "primordial man," whose history personified the struggle of good and evil. Whether emphasizing the great father's character as creator, first king, or Heaven Man, widespread traditions proclaim him to be the planet Saturn ... of glory over the land." (16) All Mesopotamian figures of the primeval god possess this tangible character, and accounts of the god's radiant appearance are more of a historical than a speculative nature. Egyptian and Mesopotamian traditions of the solitary creator find many parallels in later Hebrew, Greek, Persian, Hindu, and Chinese mysticism and philosophy. But ... parallel between the respective myths. Nor can one reconcile Ridgeway's interpretation with the incontrovertible fact that, in the earliest accounts, the great father is manifestly cosmic. That many sacred histories, however, present the creator-king in human form is a paradox requiring an explanation. The solution lies in the nature of the legendary "first man." Who Was Adam ...
