32. San Francisco, February 25, 1974 [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 4 No 2: (Spring 1974) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered VII" Home¦ Issue Contents San Francisco, February 25, 1974 Today we are going to consider a set of ideas that have at their core a completely unconventional picture of the planetary system.... Most scientists would say that this picture is totally impossible, because it violates many of the most firmly established principles of physics. To this Dr. Velikovsky would reply that there is overwhelming evidence that these events really did occur, and that if they cause difficulty for the scientists, it is up to the scientists to resolve their own problems. No one who is involved in the organization of this symposium believes that Dr. Velikovsky's ideas are correct. Yet millions of people have read his books, and after more than 20 years of condemnation by the scientific establishment he still has a large and often devoted following. It is for this reason that we believe that discussion of his ideas at a meeting of the AAAS is a public service. It is ...
33. In Memoriam: Dr Immanuel Velikovsky [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Review Vol IV No 2/3 (Winter 1979/80) Home¦ Issue Contents In Memoriam: Dr Immanuel Velikovsky Dr Alfred de Grazia Immanuel Velikovsky. Photo by Mrs E. Velikovsky 'WHERE have you been? I tried all yesterday to reach you,' said my mother's voice early on the day afterwards. 'Of course, I was in the library stacks,' I said, wishing she would not demand an accounting as a greeting. I might go into the stacks one day, and come out to discover that a catastrophic world war had meanwhile begun and ended. 'Your friend is dead!' I thought, 'Velikovsky!' My mother, of an age with him and long hard of hearing, did not trust herself to pronounce his name quickly. He died at 0800 hours on Saturday. Day of rest, a quiet death at daylight, his hand in the hand of his lifelong love alone. It had recently occurred to me more than once that he might live forever. But he did not. He ...
34. The Scientific Mafia [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 2 No 2: (May 1972) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered I" Home¦ Issue Contents The Scientific Mafia David Stove The Velikovsky Story a paper detailing some childish reactions in the scientific community to the published works of Immanuel Velikovsky This paper, delivered before the Aristotelian Society in Sydney, Australia, was first published in Honi Soit (September 7, 1967). It was not revised for Pensee, so the reader should keep in mind its date. David Stove, an Australian, is senior lecturer in the department of philosophy, University of Sydney, and author of Probability and Hume's Inductive Skepticism (forthcoming, Oxford University Press). The story of Velikovsky's theory, its reception, and its subsequent confirmations, constitutes one of the most fascinating chapters in the entire history of thought; and it is one which is still unfolding. This paper can be no more than a sketch of a sketch of it. Those who wish to know more can best begin by reading "The Velikovsky Affair," ed. A. ...
35. Velikovsky at Harvard [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 2 No 2: (May 1972) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered I" Home¦ Issue Contents Velikovsky at Harvard Stephen L. Talbott "I Survived, As You See" "I have been waiting for this evening for 22 years." It was Thursday, February 17, 1972, and Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky was addressing 900 members of academia at Harvard University. "I did not come here for revenge or triumph," he remarked at a seminar afterwards. "I came here to find the young, the spirited, the men who have a fascination for discovery." If revenge was not what Velikovsky sought, surely he at least savored the taste of vindication. For he spoke with the confidence and satisfaction of a man whom events had finally proven right --despite both the embittered opposition of science's most powerful authorities, and a protracted conspiracy of silence --and not only proven right, but vindicated by such a rapid and breathtaking series of surprising discoveries as science has rarely if ever before witnessed. "Nonsense and Rubbish ...
... is a waste of time and energy to debate with people like Sullivan and Asimov. They are not interested in a free and honest exchange of ideas. Their only objective is to distort Velikovsky's ideas, not to examine them. This is inevitable. Velikovsky's work is a devastating assault on modern science, philosophy, religion, psychology, history, the whole package. His opponents understand this very, very well. They are fighting for their lives, and livelihood. And they are losing And they are frantic. It's war. Velikovsky will win eventually, because truth eventually emerges. But they will try to deny Velikovsky the credit that is due him.... If they could separate Velikovsky's science and history from the psychiatric and social implications of his work, he would already be installed in his rightful place. But they know that any concession to Velikovsky would simply lead to more. And eventually they would have to face the truth about human history, and that they will not do.

37. In the Beginning -- A Review [The Velikovskian $]
... maintained an intermittent correspondence and who ask about these manuscripts repeatedly. It is a pity that those to whom the rights of publication were bequeathed have not seen fit to allow these treasures of the Grand Old Man of 20th century catastrophism to be commercially printed. In 1984, at the Canadian Society for Interdisciplinary Studies, Clark Whelton presented a review of Velikovsky's Light on the Dark Age of Greece. His work was subsequently published in Catastrophism 2000, edited by Milton Zysman and Clark Whelton. As yet, there is one other book by Velikovsky --of historical importance --that ought to be reviewed: The Assyrian Conquest. Hopefully, that book will be reviewed soon. In the Beginning deals with events that preceded those narrated in Worlds in Collision, and, if the hue and cry against that first book is any indication of how the intelligentsia respond to revolutionary concepts, one may possibly fathom how much greater will be the outcry against this book, which is based on the supposition that the great Noachian deluge was a reality. It was thus, according to Velikovsky in his ...
38. Chapter V: The Planets and Moon [The Age of Velikovsky] [The Age of Velikovsky] [Books]
... Title Page¦ Ch. 1¦ Ch. 2¦ Ch. 3¦ Ch. 4¦ Ch. 5¦ Ch. 6¦ Ch. 7¦ Ch. 8¦ Ch. 9¦ Appendix¦ Notes The Age of Velikovsky Chapter V: The Planets and Moon When pointing out what they consider to be flaws in Velikovsky's hypothesis, many scientists suggest that not only is Velikovsky wrong about the points under discussion, but no "real" scientist would ever have conceived the possibility of such events. However, since 1950, nearly every major idea advanced by Velikovsky has been re-advanced by a noted scientist. Some instances of this have already been discussed, but there are some noteworthy point's related to the planets. In this discussion I will try to distinguish between theoretical speculations and interpretations and actual findings. Also, I do not necessarily claim agreement with theories which may be brought up in connection with various points; i.e. they are mentioned primarily to demonstrate that the authorities now discuss, in the open scientific literature, certain postulates for which ...
39. Before the Day Breaks(1) -- A Perspective [The Velikovskian $]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 1 No 4 (1993) Home¦ Issue Contents Before the Day Breaks(1)-- A Perspective Charles Ginenthal "Before the Day Breaks" is a memoir of the relationship Velikovsky shared with Albert Einstein, of their debate over the history of the solar system and the Earth, and of the significant role played by electromagnetism in celestial motion. The two men had met in Europe in the 1920s, when Einstein was editing the mathematics and physics sections of the Writings of the University and the Library of Jerusalem- Scripta Universitatis atque Bibliothecae Hierosolymitanarum, edited by Velikovsky. Velikovsky likened the later years with Einstein, 1952 to 1955, to the wrestling struggle Jacob had one night with a man near the Jordan River. The man cried out, "Let me go, for the day breaketh."(2) Jacob, irrepressible, demanded, "I will not let thee go, except thou bless me."(3) In a deep sense, Velikovsky struggled and laboured with Einstein for three years, ...
