31. Saturn And Voyager [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. VI No. 3 (Spring 1981) Home¦ Issue Contents Saturn And Voyager Earl R. Milton The ancients write of a "sun" of the night sky which hovered over the top-of-the-world. It was taken to be a manifestation of the great god. Some worshipped him as Shamash, others knew him as Atum. The Greeks called him Kronos, the Romans Saturn. Today, his worldly-image is but a dim yellow starry point in the sky-- the ringed planet we call Saturn. It orbits the Sun every twenty-nine and one-half years. The most distant of the planets visible to the naked eye, Saturn is about one and one-half billion kilometres from the Earth; and its diameter is nearly ten times greater than the Earth's. In the sky, Saturn represents a target the size of a five cent coin at 236 metres. At that target NASA launched two space probes called Voyager. The first of them (Voyager 2) was launched from Cape Canaveral in 1977 on August 20, with Voyager I following sixteen ...
32. The Cosmology Of Tawantinsuyu [Kronos $]
... kept their wealth and clothes, their tableware and arms, "Pirua". Secondly, they said that this great Pirua Pacaric Manco Inca, the first settler of these lands, when he died, was raised up to heaven to the house and station of this god called Pirua, and that there he was lodged and entertained by this god. Mars- Aucayoc- they said they had charged with matters relating to wars and soldiers; Mercury- Catu Illa- with those having to do with merchants and travellers and messengers. Saturn- Haucha- they charged with pestilence and slaughter and famine, and lightning and thunder; and they said that he held a club and bows and arrows to hurt and punish men for their evils. Besides the Coricancha the anonymous chronicler mentions a Temple of Viracocha, a Temple of the Planet Jupiter, and one which we may call a "Dragon Temple". "The Temple of the Sun", the writer tells us, was later converted into the Church of Santo Domingo but according to Martin de Morua and other ...
33. The Baalim [Kronos $]
... ) 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, some of Velikovsky's followers picked it up and, without any evidence of their own, repeated the assertion.(5) Other researchers, with their own axe to grind, have presented Baal as representing Mars.(6) The question that faces us, I need not stress, has nothing to do with who is right and who is wrong. But, if our mythological studies are to progress, erroneous planetary identifications ...
34. David Talbott's Saturn Theory [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2002:1 (Sep 2002) Home¦ Issue Contents David Talbott's Saturn Theory Posted by "lovematters" on 7 August 2001 I have been doing my best to keep up with the current catastrophist discussions but I've yet to grasp what mechanism/event Talbott suggests is the cause for the Earth's separation from its Saturn orbit and also how it got so close in the first place. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks....reply Posted by "feline1" on 6 August 2001 Probably the best info on DaveT's Saturn theory is available at www.kronia.com., Off the top of my head, I think the broad answers to your questions are: 'how it got so close in the first place'- Dave T is suggesting that Saturn was Earth's original primary- we orbited Saturn (a 'brown dwarf', much larger then than its current size) before the Holence epoch. The cause for the separation was that our present Sun's proper motion took it close to the original Saturnian system, and captured Venus/Earth/Mars ...
35. Darkness and the Deep [Aeon Journal $]
... deals with that time, in the dim prehistory of mankind, when the Saturnian Configuration had not yet been formed. In mythological jargon, the "world" had not yet been created. What this means I hope to elucidate in what follows below. Certain fundamentals, based on specific proposals offered by others, are here accepted, but also tested against the record. First among these proposals is one which was originally offered by Immanuel Velikovsky in 1971 concerning the possibility that Earth had at one time been a satellite of the planet Saturn. (1) Actually, a similar, if more bizarre, idea that proposes the Earth to be "an offspring of Saturn" was aired as long ago as 1884 by Oskar Reichenbach (2) as part of a theory purporting to prove that land masses on Earth have rifted and moved northward. Thus, as wrong as he might have been, and I am not here concerned with defending Reichenbach, his ideas preceded the similar ones of Alfred Wegener by some 33 years. Independent of Velikovsky, but basing their ...
36. Saturn: In Myth and Religion [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. X No. 1 (Fall 1984) Home¦ Issue Contents Saturn: In Myth and Religion Dwardu Cardona Copyright (c) 1983/1984 by Dwardu Cardona This paper is an adaptation of "Trilogies, Trinities, and Triads," which originally appeared in CSISN 2:1 (August 1983). 1. Trinities In their book, The Cosmic Serpent, Victor Clube and Bill Napier alluded to the Sun, the Moon, and Venus as a ''trilogy''(1) when it is obvious they meant "trinity". I'm not certain what this says for their mythological expertise but it is not a reassuring indication. Even had they used the word "trinity", it would still have been incorrect. While it is true that, generally speaking, "trinity" merely means "a group of three", this definition falls short when used in a religious and/or mythological context. Theologically, "trinity" means "three persons in one godhead"- that is, three persons who, ...
37. On Saturn And The Flood [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. V No. 1 (Fall 1979) Home¦ Issue Contents On Saturn And The Flood Immanuel Velikovsky Copyright© 1963,1971, and 1979 by Immanuel Velikovsky [Editor's Note: This essay is based upon a lecture given by Immanuel Velikovsky at the University of the New World, Valais, Switzerland, in 1971. It was first transcribed by his secretary, Mr. Jan Sammer, who supplied both additional textual material (offset by brackets) as well as certain relevant referential data. Dr. Velikovsky's lecture was derived from his own unpublished manuscript- Saturn and the Flood- which was first conceived and written in the early 1940's. The present article is thus a condensation of a much larger work currently being prepared for publication.- LMG 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 ...
38. Saturn and the Deluge [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Saturn and the Deluge Following the rabbinical sources which declare that the Deluge was caused by two comets ejected by the planet Khima, and our interpretation of the planet Khima as Saturn, we begin to understand the astrological texts, such as certain passages in the Tetrabiblos of Ptolemy, which attribute to the planet Saturn floods and all catastrophes caused by high water. (1) The planet ? s presence in Aquarius especially brought expectations of heavy rains and flooding (2) as is attested, among others, by the first-century Roman author Lucan. (3) Many of the ancient astrologers were in agreement on this point. (4) In a work entitled Speculum astrologiae, Junctinus ascribes inundations to the action of Saturn ? s comets. (5) Cuneiform texts contain prophecies of a deluge taking place when a comet assumes a direction with its head towards the Earth. (6) Philosophers of antiquity who were not astrologers also expressed their belief that Saturn is in some way related to moisture among them the pre-Socratics Philolaus and Philodemus, (7) and ...
39. Vishnu Born Of Shiva [Kronos $]
... the identifications he had proposed for these two Vedic deities. In the same missive last quoted he also added: But I still believe that Shiva is Jupiter and Vishnu represents Venus." My answer to that was: "I never doubted that Shiva personified the planet Jupiter and in Vishnu's case, I continue to keep an open mind."(7) My reaffirmation of Shiva's identity as Jupiter, however, was just as erroneous as Velikovsky's. Today I would retract that for, as I have shown in "Child of Saturn',(8) Vishnu and Shiva were both aspects of the planet Saturn. What, then, of Vishnu's alleged birth from Shiva? As it turned out, Velikovsky's failure to locate his source was on a par with mine. When I presented "Child of Saturn" at the 1981 Princeton Seminar- "The Velikovsky Challenge- In Science and History" I confessed my own ineffectual effort in locating the troublesome source. But I also stated: "If anyone knows that I have missed a turning, I ask ...
40. Introduction: The Saturn Myth [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... --- >> I Introduction The planet Saturn today is recognizable only to those who know where to look for it. But a few thousand years ago Saturn dominated the earth as a sun, presiding over a universal Golden Age. Modern man considers it self-evident that our familiar heavens differ hardly at all from the heavens encountered by the earliest star worshippers. He assumes that the most distinctive bodies venerated in 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 the evidence assembled in the following pages indicates that within human memory extraordinary changes in the planetary system occurred: in the ...
