3. Of Lessons, Legacies, and Litmus Tests: A Velikovsky Potpourri (Part One) [Aeon Journal $]
... -- Norman D. Newell, Geol. Soc. Amer. Sp. Paper 89, 1967, quoted in Richard Huggett, Catastrophism: Systems of Earth History Introduction "What I am afraid of is not to be disputed but to be dismissed without being read."-- Immanuel Velikovsky to Harlow Shapley, March 31, 1947 "One doesn't need any scholarly apparatus to see in a common-sense way that something is fundamentally wrong with Velikovsky's treatment of the text."-- Sean Mewhinney, "El-Arish Revisited," Kronos XI:2 "Velikovskians tend very strongly to take facts and ideas in isolation and out of context, and then glue them together."-- Roger Ashton, "The Unworkable Polar Saturn," AEON I:3 This Velikovsky potpourri started out simply as an expanded version of "A lesson from Velikovsky" in Skeptical Inquirer (Summer 1986) coupled with (1) my talk on Velikovsky's legacies from the Reconsidering Velikovsky Conference in Toronto in August 1990 and (2) a defense of my case from Kronos X ...
4. Odin [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. X No. 1 (Fall 1984) Home¦ Issue Contents Odin Dwardu Cardona Copyright 1984 by Dwardu Cardona Odin (or Othin) and Woden (or Woutan or Wodan), in their many variants, were names of the same god. To the Germanic peoples, the name was Woden or Wotan; to the Scandinavians, including the Icelanders, it was Odin. In Worlds in Collision, Immanuel Velikovsky identified Odin/ Woden as the planetary god Jupiter/Zeus.(1) But, in the same work, he also hinted at a connection between this deity and the planet Mars.(2) Earlier, other writers had identified Woden as Mercury;(3) and, in fact, the Romans so identified this deity.(4) The Anglo-Saxons, who brought this Teutonic god with them to Britain, named a day of the week in his honor. Woden's day became Wednesday, which the Romans called dies Mercurii (or Mercurii dies)- i.e., Mercury's day.(5) In ...
5. Science-Fiction and Collective Amnesia: "Dragon's Egg" [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. VIII No. 1 (Fall 1982) Home¦ Issue Contents Science-Fiction and Collective Amnesia: "Dragon's Egg" Richard J. Jaarsma In Mankind in Amnesia, Immanuel Velikovsky suggests that writers of drama, fiction, and poetry sometimes unconsciously make explicit reference to the great natural catastrophes that, Velikovsky claims, have swept our planet in ancient historical times. He cites, as some examples, passages from Shakespeare, Byron, and Poe which describe not only the events themselves but the unbearable terror such events caused in those who were subjected to them.(1) Fiction, Velikovsky asserts, gives us a way of "handling", "tolerating", and "reliving" such catastrophes- safely, comfortably without mental or emotional chaos. Yet, one can go further than Velikovsky does by noting that, even where literature does not necessarily recall specific catastrophic events, much of literature has an inherent catastrophic structure. A look at plot in fiction, for instance, reveals that plot is itself an unconscious expression of terror and ...
6. Saturn's Sacred Mountain [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... their proponents or, worse still, attributed to others. Inadvertently or not, the closest to an original idea that Seitz has so far presented is the blending of Morin's Moon-within-the-Mountain hypothesis with the more generally accepted theory of the Mountain's northern location. Through this union Seitz would have the Moon erupt from Saturn's Sacred Mountain into Earth's boreal sky. Let sources be cited correctly; let credit be given where it's due-- and if Seitz' amalgamated theory is ever accepted by anyone, let him be given his reward.

7. Editorial Statement . . . [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. VI No. 4 (Summer 1981) Home¦ Issue Contents Editorial Statement... L. M. Greenberg KRONOS: THE FIRST SIX YEARS With this issue KRONOS marks the close of its sixth volume. As of this writing, no other publication emphasizing the work of Immanuel Velikovsky has ever come so far. Thanks to the generosity of its subscribers and the time and effort-- freely given-- by its staff, the journal is stronger today than at any time in its history. During the past year, KRONOS successfully established the KRONOS Endowment Fund. Supported only by donations, the KEF has underwritten-- in whole or in part-- three Velikovsky symposiums, was instrumental in creating the Omega Monograph Series, and helped to expand KRONOS' advertising. To all those who made this possible, our sincere thanks. This past year has also seen the formation of the Institute for Collective Behavior and Memory under the Directorship of KRONOS Senior Editor Dr. David Griffard. ICBM is primarily responsible for Edutours- ...
8. Survival (Vox Populi) [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. IX No. 2 (Winter 1984) Home¦ Issue Contents Vox Populi "Survival" To the Editor of KRONOS: The law of "survival of the fittest" has been rightly recognized as a tautology by Charles Fort and Tom Bethel. At the time I first read the latter's exposition in Harper's in February 1976, the argument impressed me as irrefutable. I have not changed my mind on this, but have come to realize that it is a trivial one. Bethel argues that, because fitness is defined in terms of survival, the statement can be reformulated to read "survival of the survivors". It is true that this statement can be rendered meaningless if we read it in the sense "survivors are those who survive", but this is not how it was understood by its originators. Although evolutionists may have looked upon "survival of the fittest" as an elegant summing up of the new Darwinian dispensation, in its essence it was never anything more than an expression of the empirical observation that it is ...
9. Variations on a Theme of Philolaos [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. V No. 1 (Fall 1979) Home¦ Issue Contents Variations on a Theme of Philolaos Lynn E. Rose Copyright 1979 by Lynn E. Rose [Note: This paper is much indebted to the works of Immanuel Velikovsky, and I have incorporated a number of his specific claims about the Age of Kronos. Velikovsky should of course not be held responsible for any of my own suggestions, such as the idea that Earth once kept the same hemisphere turned toward Saturn.Philolaos of Southern Italy was a Pythagorean philosopher, and a contemporary of Socrates and Democritus. Three Southern Italian cities claimed him: Kroton, Metapontum, and Tarentum. Toward the end of the fifth century he taught at Thebes in Greece, and two of his students from Thebes-- Simmias and Cebes-- appear as characters in Plato's Phaedo. The views of Philolaos have been preserved only in later accounts by other writers and in a score or so of "fragments" (that is, direct quotations attributed to Philolaos himself). There has ...
10. The Baalim [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. X No. 3 (Summer 1985) Home¦ Issue Contents The Baalim Dwardu Cardona Copyright (c) 1985 by Dwardu Cardona 1. Baal In describing the religious reformation of Josiah, King of Judah, in the 7th century B.C., Immanuel Velikovsky stressed a verse in the Old Testament which mentions Baal, the Sun, the Moon, and the planets- in that order.(1) He then drew attention to the fact that Democritus used a "division" that was identical, except for the replacement of Baal with Venus- i.e., Venus, the Sun, the Moon, and the planets.(2) On that meagre evidence- and on no other- Velikovsky identified the Canaanite Baal as a personification of the planet Venus.(3) Velikovsky also offered the opinion that, in an earlier period, Baal had been a name for Jupiter while, earlier still, even a name for Saturn.(4) Despite the fact that no evidence at all was ever offered for this contention ...
