1. 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 ...
2. On Mankind in Amnesia [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... On Saturn and the Flood Worlds in Collision comprises only the last two acts of a cosmic drama one that occurred in the middle of the second millennium before the present era; the other during the eighth and early part of the seventh century before the present era. Prior to the events described in Worlds in Collision, Venus following its expulsion from Jupiter was on a highly eccentric orbit for a period of time measured certainly by centuries, perhaps millennia, before its near-encounters with the Earth. While the actual beginning of the drama is shrouded in the mist of grey antiquity and difficult to pinpoint with exactitude, there is a point at which a clearer picture emerges. This is the time when the two giant planets Saturn and Jupiter approached each other closely. Possibly they were close for a long period of time, passing near one another as they traveled along orbital paths quite dissimilar to those of today. Saturn and Jupiter are so often associated in cosmological history that sometimes I even considered the possibility that they may have constituted a double star system, of which ...

From the paper read at the Portland World Conference.... Thus, for example, Ra was often lauded as "Lord of the Circles" and "he who entereth [or liveth in the circle. (12) He was described as "the sender forth of light into his Circle" and the "Governor of [his circle." (13) What is this Circle that the hymns allude to? Egyptologists will immediately inform us that this Circle ...
4. The Rings of Saturn [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... The Rings of Saturn One instance of the Saturn myth can be verified with the help of a small telescope: Saturn is in chains. Instead of solving anything, this fact presents a new problem that demands a solution. How did the ancient Greeks and Romans know that Saturn is encircled by rings? (1) It is strange that this question was not asked before. (2) The existence of these rings around Saturn became known in modern times only in the seventeenth century, after the telescope was invented. They were first seen, but misunderstood, by Galileo (3) and understood by Huygens. (4) If the myth did not by mere chance invent these rings, the Greeks must have seen them. The last case could be true if the Greeks or some other oriental people possessed lenses adapted for the observation of celestial bodies, or if the rings around Saturn were visible to the naked eye at some time in the past today they are not visible without magnifying instruments. There are cases of exact observations by the Chaldeans which ...
5. Saturn and Jupiter [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Saturn and Jupiter The history of this pair, the ancient Kronos and Zeus, or Saturn and Jupiter, as reflected in many traditions all around the world, tells a story that has nothing in it resembling the sedate and uneventful circling of these bodies on their orbits that modern astronomy asserts as a fact. Saturn and Jupiter are very much like the sun; were they not planets, they would be considered stars, like our sun. (1) Jupiter is nearly 330 times more massive than the Earth, and Saturn 80 times. Both planets are covered with gases which are in constant motion, like the gaseous atmosphere of the sun. The sun has nine satellites and numerous asteroids and comets; Jupiter has at least fourteen satellites and several asteroids and comets. Saturn has ten known satellites; and four or five comets constitute the Saturnian family (though these comets do not circle around Saturn itself, they are commonly regarded as related to the orbit of Saturn). Were Jupiter and Saturn free from the bonds of the sun, they could be ...
6. Intimations of an Alien Sky [Aeon Journal $]
... century B.C. (9) Tredennick then referred his readers to John Burnet, an earlier authority on the subject, who had written: In classical Greek literature no planets but Hesperos [Venus as Evening Star& Eosphoros [Venus as Morning Star are mentioned by name at all...Mercury appears for the first time by name [as Hermes in [Plato's Timaeus 38e, and other divine names are given [also by Plato in Epinomis 987b sq., where they are said to be 'Syrian.' The Greek names Phaenon [Saturn, Phaethon [Jupiter, Pyroeis [Mars, Phosphorus [another designation for Venus as Morning Star& Stilbon [Mercury are no doubt older, though they do not happen to occur earlier. (10) So, also, W.D. Ross, another modern translator of Aristotle who appended a similar disclaimer to the original passage quoted earlier. (11) What these authorities, and other since then, have failed to take into consideration is that there was no reason in very ancient and pre-Greek times to spell out the identity ...
7. The Saturn Problem [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 2000:1 "Proceedings of the SIS Silver Jubilee Event" Home¦ Issue Contents The Saturn Problem by Peter J. James Peter James describes himself as a 'generalist' in the ancient Near East and Mediterranean. He graduated in Ancient History and Archaeology at Birmingham University and pursued postgraduate research in Ancient History at London University. Peter has published numerous articles on ancient chronology, technology and the history of science, in both academic and popular journals. He is the principal author of Centuries of Darkness, author of The Sunken Kingdom (1995) and co-author (with Nick Thorpe) of Ancient Inventions (1994) and Ancient Mysteries (1999). For many years Editor of the SIS Review, he is now an honorary member of the Society. Summary The gods of the ancient world are complex quantities not susceptible to a universal explanation. While we should be wary of over-concentrating on their astral aspect, the planetary role of many ancient gods is undeniable. The importance given to the planets in ancient pantheons, and in ...
8. The Unworkable Polar Saturn [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon I:3 (1988) Home¦ Issue Contents The Unworkable Polar Saturn Roger Ashton 1. Saturn at the North Celestial Pole As if a rational process of thinking accounted for the content of folklore and myth, efforts to trace it all back to an identifiable origin, starting particularly with de Santillana's and von Dechend's Hamlet's Mill, have tended to uncover origins in a celestial context. Pursuing the course of the earlier Worlds in Collision, by Immanuel Velikovsky, and looking further backwards, such writers as David N. Talbott, Dwardu Cardona and others have produced several divergent versions of planetarily reconstructed myth in which Saturn is situated at the Earth's north celestial pole. The latter seems quite preposterously at odds with gravitation, which would not allow Saturn and the rotational pole of Earth to remain immobile with respect to each other. Instead of dismissing the idea out of hand, it will be in many ways instructive to examine it from the inside. Only in this way can all of the criteria which preclude a polar Saturn be brought into view. ...
9. Did Saturn Explode Twice? [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 4 No 3 (Dec 1981) Home¦ Issue Contents Did Saturn Explode Twice? Hugh Eggleton In Kronos V:1 and the works of David Talbott, we are presented with overwhelming evidence that prior to Noah's flood, Saturn, which was then a star, became a nova. In Kronos III:3 Dwardu Cardona outlines a similar picture involving Saturn but he places Saturn's "flare-up" at the so called dawn of creation which implies that Talbotts "sun of night" would have been an already-spent star. Since Cardona's theory is also well founded, it is time to ask the question: did Saturn explode twice? According to the Bible, Saturn definitely exploded twice. In Genesis 1:3 "God said let there be light and there was light. God saw the light was good." (Jerusalem Bible) In Genesis 7:10 "And it came to pass after seven days that the waters of the flood were on the Earth." (King James version) In Kronos V:I ( ...
10. Saturn's Golden Age [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Saturn ? s Golden Age The age than man later called the Age of Kronos (Saturn) was remembered with nostalgia as an age of bliss. References to the Age of Kronos in the ancient lore are very numerous. (1) Hesiod tells of A golden race of mortal men who lived in the time of Kronos when he was reigning in heaven. And they lived like gods without sorrow of heart, remote and free from toil: miserable age rested not on them... The fruitful earth unforced bare them fruit abundantly and without stint. They dwelt in ease and peace upon their lands with many good things.... (2) Similarly writes Ovid in the sixth book of his Metamorphoses: In the beginning was the Golden Age, when men of their own accord, without threat of punishment, without laws, maintained good faith and did what was right.... The earth itself, without compulsion, untouched by the hoe, unfurrowed by any share, produced all things spontaneously.... It was a ...
