251. Guardians of the Boundaries of Science [Pensee]
... ) More specifically, the current vogue of the term "fringe science" seems to derive from symposium panelist Carl Sagan's characterization of Velikovsky. Further, Sagan's explanation for Velikovsky's "appeal" was widely parroted around after the symposium: "it is an attempted validation of religion.... Velikovsky attempts to rescue not only religion but astrology." One can safely assume that efforts to link Velikovsky with every sort of cause "beyond the fringe of science" will continue-in our day that seems to be a safer form of dismissal ... "cultic followers," "irrationalism," and mysticism." In reading certain editorials in scientific journals, one receives the impression that the strong walls of Science stand in imminent danger of being breached at several points by the growing public interest in parapsychology, Eastern religions, astrology, the occult --and, of course, Velikovsky. Some of these writers simply express their amazement at the amount of ignorance and superstition still remaining in the scientifically advanced countries, despite long efforts by scientists to educate the public. Others are alarmed at ...

255. Who Were the Assyrians of the Persian Period [Aeon Journal $]
... all derive from Akhaemenid territories outside Assyria. Conventional scholarship dates the Assyrian pieces on the upper part of the pages between 900 and 610 BCE. The Akhaemenid items are dated between 520 and 330 BCE. From this chronological sequence the conclusion is drawn that the material and religious world of the Akhaemenids is but an imitation of that of the Assyrians. Are we to believe that, nearly a century after the demise of Assyria, the Akhaemenids borrowed their culture from the ruins of that land? This despite the fact that, according to ... LX). Unten: Achämenidische Flügelstier (Amiet et al. 1988, 30). [* !* Image "It is not difficult to understand why Ashur never gained willing adherents among other nationalities.

256. Introduction: The Saturn Myth [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... in the planetary system occurred: in the earliest age recalled by man the planet Saturn was the most spectacular light in the heavens and its impact on the ancient world overwhelming. In fact Saturn was the one "great god" invoked by all mankind. The first religious symbols were symbols of Saturn, and so pervasive was the planet god's influence that the ancients knew him as the creator, the king of the world, and Adam, the first man. Since the only meaningful defense of this claim is the entire body of ... primitive times were the sun and moon, followed by the five visible planets and various constellations-- all appearing as they do today, but for such ever-so-slight changes as the precession of the equinoxes. This long-standing belief not only confines present discussion of ancient myth and religion; it is the fixed doctrine of modern astronomy and geology: every prevailing theory of the solar system and of earth's past rests upon an underlying doctrine of cosmic uniformity-- the belief that the clocklike regularity of heavenly motions can be projected backward indefinitely. But ...

... architectural structures. The more anthropologists learn about ancient and aboriginal cultures, the more obvious it becomes how important a role celestial matters played in their intellectual life and sacred institutions. Already at the dawn of history in Mesopotamia, the planet Venus figures prominently in the earliest religious temples. Planetary worship is also widespread in Mesoamerica, where the observation and veneration of the various planets formed a virtual obsession.

259. The Scientific Mafia [Pensee]
... a "despotic and irresponsible Mafia." Second, some brief observations arising from the theory itself, but still independent of its truth. One is this, that if anything remotely like Velikovsky's theory is true, what vistas it opens up for the whole study of religion, and of the fear of the skies in general! (Though Velikovsky himself never says a word about this.) Another is this. If anything remotely like Velikovsky's theory is true, the whole range of humanistic studies, classics, history, archaeology, ... especially when Velikovsky found an Egyptian document which seemed to refer to the same events, he began to wonder whether the disasters might not have been real.

Stecchini Greeks of classical times assigned great importance to a body of religious literature known as Orphic Hymns, which dealt with cosmology and were understood to have originated in archaic times.

Chassapis, published a monograph, Greek Astronomy of the Second Millennium B. C. According to the Orphic Hymns (Greek title and Greek text, with English summary), in which he examines this material from the angle of his professional competence.
