1. The Unholy War Backfires [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... New York Post FRIDAY, JULY 30, 1948 The Unholy War Backfires A Girded Israel Upsets Professors of Koran in Their Misguided Jiddah By OBSERVER The war against the present Jewish community in Palestine is not an Arab holy war. It is, instead, unholy, and up to now the Israelis have been the victors and the Arabs the defeated. The Arabs could not believe that this could be; so they tried again, and in the 10 days following the end of the four-week truce they lost Nazareth, the capital of western Galilee, and Lydda with its airport, Ramleh and the plain that stretches from it toward Jerusalem, in central Palestine. The Egyptian army encircled at Ashdod was annihilated. This is a rout. An unholy war it has been and a good rout it was. In a dispatch to The New York Times of July 26, Clifton Daniel writes on the basis of military reports from the Middle East: ? The Arabs... suffered... a substantial military defeat in the war in Palestine... The ...
2. Darkness Over Sinai (Where was Moses when the light went out?) [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... we say, Solomon. It is quite likely that in the intervening transition period both systems were in use, depending upon the orthodoxy of thought. Interestingly enough, the length of Moses' life seems to suggest an element of confusion. The Bible gives his age as 80 years old when the Exodus took place and as 120 at death. This far exceeds the allotted three-score years and ten, but to assert that these years were 'lunar years' is unnecessary and there is another possibility open to deal with this problem. The Koran [2 records the revelations of Allah to Muhammad and there are frequent references to the followers of the Book (i.e. the Bible of the Jews). In Chapter 16 and elsewhere it considers its revelations to be the most recent words of God, which were necessary to remove errors and differences that had arisen after previous revelations. Thus the Muslims consider it as correcting the Bible in many instances. Some of these revelations concern Moses. The incident of Moses killing an Egyptian is recounted, and his flight to Midian where ...
3. Ebla and Velikovsky [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... is not yet proven whether he or Akkad is mentioned. 6 Sodom and Gomorrah Another matter of controversy is whether Sodom and Gomorrah are mentioned in the tablets. If they are, then the historicity of Abraham at the end of the Early Bronze Age is considerably strengthened. It will be some time before this can be confirmed. 7 Something else of interest, however, turns up in the Ebla record. Just as Sodom and Gomorrah were proverbially "sinful" cities. so Samuta, 'Ad, and Irma were characterized in the Koran as examples of divine retribution. All three were listed in the Ebla tablets and are probably to be located in Syria. In Islamic tradition they were identified with Damascus. Beyond the Ebla references and the Koran there is no other mention of this triad of cities. 8 Jerusalem As in so many cases of controversy over whether a person or place is mentioned in the Ebla tablets, one of these concerns Jerusalem. Velikovsky had pointed out in Ages in Chaos that the Bible indicates that before David's capture Jerusalem was called Jebus or ...
4. Bookshelf [SIS C&C Review $]
... This is obviously a book to interest interdisciplinarians but be warned- Schoch places Velikovsky in the same camp as von Daniken and Sitchen and dismisses them all. Atlantis of the Sands? The Sunday Times Books section, 14 March 1999, carried a review of The Road to Ubar: Atlantis of the Sands by Nicholas Clapp (Souvenir Press £18.99) by Anthony Sattin. A 10th-century Yemeni historian, Aby Muhammad al-Hamdani, attempted to document lost civilisations, such as the southern Arabian tribe of 'Ad and their city, Ubar. The Koran says they were 'dealt with' by Allah for being 'arrogant and unjust'. T E Lawrence reported being told by Arabs that 'ruined castles' had been seen 'in the region of Wabar'. The city had never been found. Ubar and the tribe of 'Ad were known to the Romans. Nicholas Clapp consulted 15th-century copies of Ptolemy's maps and discovered that printers had mislocated Ptolemy's 'Omanum Emporium', the emporium of Oman. Clapp looked at satellite images of the region showing the rock beneath the sand. He concluded that there ...
5. The "Great and Terrible Wilderness" [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... overthrown, the trees broken, the population drowned: the catastrophe ruined the entire kingdom. The inhabitants of the Arabian desert preserved through centuries the memory of a remote past when the catastrophe of Marib occurred. A migration of tribes in South and North Arabia was connected with this cataclysm. Different variants of this catastrophe were kept in the memory of generations, adorned with fancy and transmitted up to the time when Islamic writers recorded them in their histories. The catastrophe that transformed a fertile plain into a barren quarter is related in the Koran (sura 34): Seba had in their dwellings a sign: two gardens on the right hand and on the left. Eat from the provision of your Lord, and give thanks to him! a good country and a forgiving Lord! but they turned away, and we sent against them the flood of the dyke; and we changed for them their two gardens into two gardens that grew bitter fruit and tamarisk and some few lote trees. In other narratives referring to the flood of the Dyke, and in commentaries ...
6. The Role of Collective Amnesia in Retarding the Acceptance of Correct Ideas in Science [Kronos $]
... "blocking", in the psychoanalytic sense, to see obvious things. Why have students of mythology failed to discover why the gods of the pantheons of all ancient races should have been identified with the planets? Why do the traditions of all races speak of celestial theomachy, of great natural perturbations, with the Sun, stars, and meteors taking part? Or, why do modern students of religion not wonder at the grandiose natural events described in the holy books and the concepts of eschatology so prominent in the Gospels and the Koran? Why do students of geology strain themselves to explain, or explain away, catastrophically-formed phenomena they observe on the bottoms of the seas, in mountain ridges, in great fields of lava, and great deserts? I have called this psychological phenomenon collective amnesia, and I have explained the term elsewhere: it is not that we have no historical evidence; it is rather the inability to read the texts as they are- Mars for Mars, Jupiter for Jupiter, fire for fire, hurricane for hurricane, and deluge for ...

8. Velikovsky's Water Mountain(s) [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1998:2 (Dec 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents Velikovsky's Water Mountain(s) http://www.ebicom.net/~rsf1/vel/wtr_mtn.htm In Worlds in Collision (1950), Velikovsky mentions the following items in connection with his discussion of the Israelite Red Sea passage: "The Septuagint translation of the Bible says that the water stood "as a wall," and the Koran, referring to this event, says "like mountains.". (WiC p. 72) [One water mountain may be the Red Sea and the other the Mediterranean.. The Midrashim contain the following description: "The waters were piled up to the height of sixteen hundred miles, (WiC p. 72). and, When the tidal waves rose to their highest point, and the seas were torn apart, a tremendous spark flew between earth and the globe of the comet, which instantly pushed down the miles-high billows. (WiC p. 77) The spark may have initially jumped from the comet's dust ...

From: Amy Acheson <amelia@Whidbey.com> Date: Thu, 04 Mar 1999 19:24:10 -0800 Wal Thornhill wrote: When confronted with the conclusions drawn from the standard solar model, which is central to modern cosmology, I agree with Gregg Easterbrook who wrote in The New Republic of last October 12; "... for sheer extravagant implausibility, nothing in theology or metaphysics can hold a candle to the [Big Bang. Surely, if this description of the cosmic genesis came from the Bible or the Koran rather than the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, it would surely be treated as a preposterous myth." Cardona Offers: But the theory did come from a religious work. Here's a short selection from Chapter 1 of GOD STAR by yours truly: Begin quote: In fact, even that so-called pillar of astrophysics, the Big Bang Theory, had been much earlier posited in a religious work. In the Book of Genesis, Elohim, usually translated into English as "God," begins the creation with the words: " ...
