171. Forum [SIS C&C Review $]
... it openly as opposed to ignoring it. Should regnal year 16 prove to be authentic, Gammon could find himself in an embarrassing compression of time. Furthermore, should that compression be relieved by lowering the proposed dates for the Nineteenth-Dynasty pharaohs then John Bimson may find himself squeezed in his efforts to relocate the Merneptah Stele chronologically. Bimson already has a problem due to the fact that he inadvertently picked up a spurious date from Ramses II and His Time that was printed in the time chart at the back of the book. According to Velikovsky, the accession of Merneptah occurred in 579 B.C. and that of Amasis in 569 B.C. (see Ramses II, pp 181 and 190). Bimson, following the erroneous time chart, would have Velikovsky attribute an accession date to Merneptah of 569 B.C. instead of 579 B.C. This vitiates completely the opening remarks in paragraph two of Bimson's article on the Merneptah Stele (SISR III:2, p 57). Instead of that stele being dated 23 years after the fact according to Velikovsky's revision, we are ...

173. Radiocarbon Dates for the Eighteenth Dynasty [SIS C&C Review $]
... Museum of the University of Glasgow. He has contributed articles to numerous journals, and is the author of "Science and Society in Prehistoric Britain". He is a founder of the Society and a contributor to Pensée and the S.I.S. Review. Despite Dr Velikovsky's endeavours radiometric data from the New Kingdom of Egypt is still very limited. The results given by samples tested and published are collected in the accompanying table and their significance assessed below. (commentary by the Editor) For twelve years after the publication of Ages in Chaos Velikovsky made repeated efforts to have his revised chronology tested by the new method of radiocarbon dating. A full catalogue of the most important correspondence that he engaged in during those years was published in Pensée (1), and makes very disconcerting reading. When Velikovsky began his campaign hardly any C14 results from Egyptian material of the New Kingdom- the period affected by his revised chronology- had been published. Yet the replies he received from the various Museum authorities he approached for further tests (and full publication of the results) displayed ...
174. Still Facing Many Problems (Part II) [Kronos $]
... will appear in KRONOS XI:1 and beyond.- LMG Part I, in KRONOS X:1, discussed five topics: wild motions, the Sun's habitable zone, the Worzel ash, tree rings, and ice cores, and how they impact Veiikovsky's scenario for recent Earth history. This survey continues with discussions of ice ages, sea level, tippe top Earth, gravity vs. magnetism, and electric stars. ICE AGES: The previous section on the Greenland ice cores naturally suggests the subject of ice ages, which Velikovsky tied into his theory of cosmic catastrophism in Earth in Upheaval, Chapters VIII, IX, and X. At the time, no theory for ice ages answered all the questions posed by their occurrence. Since no theory was generally accepted, Velikovsky, like everyone else, was justified in concluding that "the concept of ice ages, which is established in science as one of its most definite facts,... has no explanation itself" (pp. 110-111). Velikovsky then proceeded to build a case for the ...
175. Kinetic Theory, Gravity, and Critical Fog [Aeon Journal $]
... Aeon V:4 (July 1999) Home¦ Issue Contents Out of the attic (II)... Kinetic Theory, Gravity, and Critical Fog George R. Talbott "Real scientists" are characterized by their ability to perform competent laboratory measurements, fine mathematical deductions, meaningful research; and they have the ability to appreciate ideas. A "real scientist" tries to understand. One may select a dependable political associate by what and whom he hates, but this will not do in selecting a dependable scientist. Immanuel Velikovsky never lost the sunny assumption that he was dealing with reasonable people, a peculiar optimism for one as accomplished as he was in psychiatry. So he entered debates and wrote books with the expectation of a fair hearing, evidently unaware of the existence of self-styled "educators" who, like TV talk-show hosts, seem to enjoy defaming anyone or anything. Scientific discourse and criticism in a quality research center are wholly different from the shameless mouthing of the likes of Henry Bauer. His attacks on Velikovsky are said to have produced a ...

177. Stories of Radioactivity and Mutations [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1991 No 1 (July 1991) Home¦ Issue Contents Stories of Radioactivity and Mutations by George R. Harvey Essential to the theory of an episodical, extraterrestrially regulated clock [1 is the concept that each episode produced a phenomenon which caused DNA mutations. Velikovsky speculated that perhaps there were electrical discharges between Earth and a large, extraterrestrial body which, in turn, could have induced radioactivity or allowed exposure to intense cosmic radiation, and thus give rise to DNA mutations. Not wishing to suggest the agent, I have used the general term 'radiation' in my previous article to describe the cause of mutations which accompanied each episode and which left no apparent geological trace. The term could cover the full range of electromagnetic radiation, beginning with heat, and could also include any type of short lived radioactive radiation. But the lack of geological trace does not mean that there is only supposition for proof of radiation. Velikovsky has adequately argued his ideas on evolution from the geological and palaeontological viewpoints [2. However, he ...
178. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Christoph Marx Schulstrasse 17 4436 Oberdorf, Switzerland January 22, 1978 Mr. Jan Sammer 78 Hartley Avenue Princeton, N.J. 08540 Dear Jan: while you ? re puzzled by a cordial observation of mine. I ? m somewhat worried about the greater part of your exposition. So let me give an overview of my understanding: 1) While Dr. Velikovsky gave advice about the points he would like to have improved in the contract, I really was never under the impression that apart from these points being resolved there was any principal opposition against the Umschau contract after my letter of October 16. According to our cable exchange of October 23/24 I did not yet sign (as your telegram implied I could) with Mr. Curths when he visited at my home on October 31. Immediately after this visit Dr. Velikovsky called by phone to inquire how things had gone, my wife (in my absence) understanding that signing should be put off by a fortnight to coincide with the publication of Sagan ? s book (and the phone call ...
179. Bookshelf [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Review Vol III No 2 (Autumn 1978) Home¦ Issue Contents Bookshelf Edited by Brian Moore A New Affair THE VELIKOVSKY AFFAIR: Scientism versus Science by Alfred de Grazia (ed.) and others (2nd edn., London: Abacus/Sphere, 1978; £l.25, paperback). "We dedicate this book to people who are concerned about the ways in which scientists behave and how science develops. It deals especially with the freedom that scientists grant or withhold from one another. The book is also for people who are interested in new theories of cosmogony- the causes of the skies, the earth, and humankind as we see them. It is, finally, a book for people who are fascinated by human conflict, in this case a struggle among some of the most educated, elevated, and civilized characters of our times." These are the opening words of Dr de Grazia's introduction to the second edition of The Velikovsky Affair. The essays in this book made a significant contribution to the "struggle" ...
180. Interdisciplinary Indiscipline [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1990 (Vol XII) Home¦ Issue Contents Interdisciplinary Indiscipline by Dick Atkinson Dick Atkinson graduated from Newcastle University with a B.A. in Philosophy (1968) and is now Head of English at Harton Comprehensive School, South Shields. He has a special interest in ancient science and civilisation and describes himself as an avid collector of books, especially on astronomy and history. Introduction I first encountered 'the Velikovsky Affair' in Alfred de Grazia's book of that title. Much later, around 1972, I read Worlds in Collision [1. In a general way Velikovsky's research was impressive: it was clearly true that ancient authors believed there had been great astronomical catastrophes, and often gave fascinatingly interlocking accounts. Nevertheless, Velikovsky's detailed conclusions- that the planet Venus, as an Earth-grazing super-comet, had caused these disasters- failed to convince. The logic was never tight enough. I was curious to discover whether informed criticism had suggested a viable compromise, fitting the safest of his deductions into a more credible scenario [2. What ...
