191. Quantalism And Prehistory [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... , and probably most drastic, step toward control of the non-human world, was taken when our ancestors began hunting, killing, and eating other animals, making our species Earth's supreme predator. (In passing, we might note how misleading it is for anthropologists to refer to foraging societies, like those of the African Bushmen or the Australian Aborigines, as "hunting-and-gathering" peoples, as though hunting were no more than the gathering of meat-which is to say, scavenging. In fact, hunting has no more fundamental connection with gathering than has violence with sex, as in the familiarly disparaging locution "sex and violence." Our pre-catastrophic ancestors were presumably peaceable gatherers, whose hunting ...
192. The Creation of Man (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... them at once. Thus the Redskins came into being, and that is why the Shawnees still revere the Old Grandmother as their ancestress. ' The Salman Indians say that the Eagle made a man out of mud which a diving-bird had brought up from the bottom of the deluge waters. Old Man Pundyil, a great deity of the Australian aborigines, made man out of clay. The Greek epic poet Asius says that the Earth threw up a man of its own accord, that there might be a race of men. This Earth-born man was Pelasgus, the ancestor of the original inhabitants of Greece. The creation myth of the Quiché says that the first man was fashioned out ...
193. Flavius Josephus Against Apion Book 1 [Books]
... transactions preserved, this must for certain have afforded those that would afterward write about those ancient transactions the opportunity of making mistakes, and the power of making lies also; for this original recording of such ancient transactions hath not only been neglected by the other states of Greece, but even among the Athenians themselves also, who pretend to be Aborigines, and to have applied themselves to learning, there are no such records extant; nay, they say themselves that the laws of Draco concerning murders, which are now extant in writing, are the most ancient of their public records; which Draco yet lived but a little before the tyrant Pisistratus. (5 ) For as to ...
194. Chapter VII: The Earth [The Age of Velikovsky] [Books]
... becoming widely accepted that a number of short-lived reversals may yet be discovered. Unfortunately, it is also obvious that these brief events will be difficult to detect. Berbettl and McElhinny recently discussed the possibility that a reversal occurred about 30,000 years ago. 28 They conducted experiments similar to those of FoIgheraiter; however, their investigations were of aboriginal fireplaces in Australia around Lake Mungo. They noticed that consistent directions were almost always obtained when several stones from the same oven were analyzed. Thus they felt that if a reversal had occurred during the time the site was occupied, they might be able to detect it by analysis of a number of fireplaces in the immediate area. They ...
195. Chapter II: The Events [The Age of Velikovsky] [Books]
... it back up by shouting"Yahu" which was heard all over the world. At Mt Sing the people heard "I am Yahweli". Velikovsky relates instances of people hearing this sound throughout the world. When Cotlow published Twilight of the Primitive he quoted from the notes of one of the first people to become closely associated with the aborigines of Australia. This person said that the group did not have a god, but they did have a devil named Yakoo. If anyone died, it was said that Yakoo took him. FOOD FROM THE SKY Many cultures have a tradition about a time of great catastrophes followed by a time period when the survivors Of these catastrophes were ...
196. The Land(s) of Punt [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... or Governor of the natives is called P' r-hw, which Naville translated as Parohu, Velikovsky noted that the father of one of King Solomon's twelve Governors was named Paruah, and he used this similarity in names as an argument for the identification of Punt as Palestine. Although it is difficult to believe that Solomon's Governor would greet the Egyptians in aboriginal garb, the similarity in names is striking. Two-thirds of the Punt Reliefs were defaced or destroyed, probably by Hatshepsut's successor, Thutmose III. What remains is an innocuous description of a voyage to an unknown land or lands. I would suggest that many of the details of the voyage to Punt were erased because Thutmose III did not ...
197. Ras Shamra (Ages in Chaos) [Velikovsky]
... and actually is the earliest yet known."30 The Hebrew-cuneiform alphabet of Ras Shamra is not a primitive pioneer effort; it has features that indicate it was already in an advanced stage. "The Ras Shamra alphabet is already so advanced that it implies the existence of a still earlier alphabet yet to be found."31 What the aborigines of Canaan wrote down was even more unexpected. In the mirror in which, in conformity with biblical references to the Canaanites, it was expected that the face of a wicked generation and of a low spiritual culture would be seen, the face of a dignified people was reflected. In the Book of Leviticus and in other books of ...

... of the rest of the world) had strong religious feelings about living in harmony and balance with nature and man's fellow creatures. The only evidence of massive extinctions caused by man comes from the last two centuries when the European advanced across the world with his firearms, leaving a trail of environmental exploitation and destruction, including the very Amerindian and Aboriginal cultures which had for so long safeguarded the environment as sacred trust. I feel it is grossly unfair to project ideas of European materialistic culture onto these peoples, against all the available facts. I consider, therefore, that it is not reasonable to conclude that either change of climate or hunting by man caused the late Pleistocene extinctions. ...

... an evolutionary hiatus, a long period of physical and cultural stagnation, from one million years ago to around 200,000 years ago. It seems more reasonable to question the dating. Behaviour selects skulls New Scientist 16.1 .93, p. 37 Racial characteristics in humans is a touchy subject but there is no denying that Australian Aborigines have considerably thicker vault bones in their skulls than other races. One reasonable explanation is that this is due to a long practised tradition for both sexes to settle disputes by violent blows to the head with their digging sticks. Self selection in action!
