11. Saturn [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Saturn Of Saturn I intended, already for some two decades, to write in a volume ? Saturn and the Flood,? in which, as the title discloses, I would endeavor to identify this planet as the prime cause of the greatest of all catastrophes in human memory the universal flood, or Deluge. This part of Worlds in Collision was conceived and drafted together with the parts dealing with Venus and Mars, but the elaboration of details was postponed and other labors claimed my attention and I am still before work unfinished. I will, however, disclose in a few sentences what is the subject of that part of reconstruction of world history. The age that man later called the Age of Cronos (Saturn) was remembered with nostalgia as the age of bliss. It was the the earliest age of which man retained some, however dim, memories, but farther into the past, the dimness amounts almost to darkness. Saturn was also a more massive body than it is now, possibly of the volume of Jupiter, 1 whereas now the ...
12. Saturn's Flare-ups [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... : SIS Workshop Vol 5 No 1 (1982) Home¦ Issue Contents Saturn's Flare-ups Dwardu Cardona Hugh Eggleton badly misunderstood my work. Worse than that, he misrepresented my hypothesis. He is also guilty of other misconceptions. The present paper, in response to his,(1) is intended to clarify some points as well as to add, even if only in passing, some additional information concerning Saturn's early history. I shall not tackle the points in the same order in which they appear in Eggleton's article- "Did Saturn Explode Twice?"- I shall, instead, attempt a sequence in keeping with the chronology of the events discussed. I shall therefore start with matters of planetary identification. Eggleton stated that it was "Yahweh [who creates the two lights, the Sun and Saturn". "There is little doubt," he continued, "that the Jewish God was originally a Saturn figure as might be readily concluded by virtue of the name El which was the name for both the Jewish God and the name for Saturn. ...
13. Shamash and Sin [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... not least because my name popped up in the short discussion. Whoever is responsible for the item is correct in maintaining that 'the symbol was used by a wide variety of people way before the foundation of Islam' and is usually 'interpreted as representing Ishtar and Sin', who are normally identified as 'Venus and the Moon'. In parenthesis it is then added that: "Dwardu Cardona has pointed out that a common entry in Babylonian astrological reports was 'when Shamash stands in the halo of Sin' but for Cardona, Shamash is Saturn." It is then asked, 'Is Sin even the Moon?'. An astute question- but first, and this is important, it is not 'for Cardona' that 'Shamash is Saturn'. Shamash is, or was, Saturn for the Assyro-Babylonians themselves who reported it, more than once, in the very astrological texts mentioned above in no uncertain terms. As they had it written, '( Mul) Lu-Bat Sag-Us Mul (il) Samas Su-u', which translates as 'the planet Saturn is Shamash' ...
14. The Demands of the Saturnian Configuration Theory [SIS C&C Review $]
... a freelance writer since 1968. He has, since then, acted as a Contributing Editor for KRONOS and, later, as Senior Editor for the same periodical. He was a Founding Father of the now-defunct Canadian Society for Interdisciplinary Studies. He is currently the Editor of AEON as well as the Series Editor for the Osiris Series of books sponsored by Cosmos& Chronos. An enthusiastic researcher and writer, he has now published over 100 articles on various subjects in various periodicals. Summary The Saturnian theory proposes a line-up of the planets Saturn, Venus, Mars and Earth, all sharing the same axis of rotation. According to the mytho-historical record, this seemingly outrageous arrangement of planets existed in prehistoric times before it fell apart in a series of catastrophic events. In reconstructing the events in the formation and destruction of this configuration, certain demands which the theory raises have to be met. These events should also have left tell-tale marks on the terrestrial environment. Introduction For those who are not familiar with 'the Saturnian configuration', the theory, bizarre in the extreme ...

17. Indra [Kronos $]
... and Vishnu, Agni, and Surabhi were not Venus, who was it in the Hindu pantheon that personified these two terrible planets of old? The above question was asked at the end of a recent paper in which I argued against the acceptance of Velikovsky's planetary identification of these deities.(1) In abrogating these identities, I left Worlds In Collision bereft of any Indic candidates which might have stood for these two planets. The correct identification of Venus among the Hindu deities was, however, argued separately in "Child of Saturn", Part III.(2) The conclusion was there reached that, with some reservations, Artur Isenberg had presented the best case when he equated the Mahadevi with the planet in question. But because "Child of Saturn" is devoted to Venus and Saturn, the proper identity of the Hindu Jupiter was left unaccounted for. In order to fill this void, I must rob Worlds In Collision of yet another identification. In that work, Indra is presented as the Hindu Mars.(3) Velikovsky based this ...
18. The Polar Sun [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... --- >> III The Polar Sun Saturn's mythical history includes two themes which not only contradict the planet's visible appearance today, but seem to mock the canons of modern astronomy: Saturn, not the solar orb, was the authentic "sun "-god of ancient ritual. Throughout Saturn's reign this sun-planet remained fixed at the north celestial pole. These two themes, affirmed by the straightforward testimony of ancient sources, compose a global memory: in the beginning Saturn did not move on its present remote orbit, but ruled as the central sun around which the other heavenly bodies visually revolved. Of this tradition early man has left us evidence far too numerous to cover fully in this volume. I offer below a summary of the principal sources. SUN AND SATURN The myths and rites celebrate Saturn as the primeval sun. Today, few mythologists looking back across several millennia to the beginnings of astral religion see anything more than worship of the rising and setting sun, the solar orb. This preoccupation with the solar orb is evident in popular surveys: "The ...
19. SYMBOLS.com [SIS Internet Digest $]
... the online version of Carl G Liungman's book Thought Signs (IOS Press, ISBN 90 5199 197 5). The subtitle of the book is "The semiotics of Symbols-- Western Non-pictorial Ideograms", which fairly describes its contents. Published by HME Media, Bondegatan 65 A, 5 tr., S-116 34 Stockholm, Sweden. Tel: +46 8 644 80 51 Fax: +46 8 612 39 80, Web site: http://www.hme.se, Email: email@example.com. Sample entry for a Saturn (reproduced with permission): 17:8 As an old Italic deity of sowing and harvest, Saturn became the Roman god of agriculture, gardening and vineyard cultivation. He was also a benefactor of humankind, a promoter of prosperity, and good manners and customs. He seems to have been portrayed as an old man with a sickle and a pruning knife in his hands. It is probably from that way to portray Saturn we have our image of personified Death, the old man with a sickle. And it is ...
20. Abraham and Phallicism [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... concerning a male homosexual act. Proponents of Dr Immanuel Velikovsky's theory of an upset Solar System give many instances of religious ceremonies which can easily be explained as the attempt by a terrified people to appease the gods or angels by imitating or otherwise relating to the astronomical phenomena they witnessed [1. I wish to propose a similar explanation for the two phallic events. These may have been two different, already old, ways of trying to relate to the heavens after Saturn's loss of the column which appeared to have reached from Earth to Saturn. The heavens needed to be assuaged in Abraham's day because of the obvious danger from above which was to culminate in Sodom's destruction. I lean towards the arguments of those who believe Venus was the agent of Sodom's destruction and the source of the sulphur which rained from heaven. Background There are myths which have the phallus as part of the drama. In an Egyptian story [2, Osiris, identified as Saturn [3, was torn into fourteen pieces by the avenging Seth who dropped the pieces into the Nile. Mournful ...
