... papyrus up to the end of the Middle Kingdom, in accidental accordance with Velikovsky's dating. In his influential 1952 review, Albright listed what he viewed as Velikovsky's methodological sins: "a completely eclectic use of evidence;" "unjustified inference from sources of unequal value;" "total neglect of fundamentals and a penchant for dealing with the bizarre and incredible;" and "total neglect of the laws of evidence as carefully worked out by linguists, philogians and critical historians of every specialty." Even as Albright was writing, his colleague and former pupil, Nelson Glueck (who in 1950 had inveighed against Velikovsky in collaboration with Shapley), was busy conducting an archeological survey ...

... other and the Solar System became relatively stable. Whether right or wrong (it is generally accepted, since it is consistent with findings from the Apollo and Voyager space programmes - see Scientific American October 1994, pp. 44-51), this is a plausible theory. However, perhaps stung by criticism of Velikovsky by Hartmann, Strickling makes the bizarre claim that the Schmidt theory is self-contradictory, since it argues both that the Solar System has always been uniform and peaceful' and has suffered great catastrophes because of its many non-uniformities'. What utter nonsense! As neither Schmidt nor Hartmann put forward the first of those propositions, there is no case to answer. Some of Strickling's other ...

... identity, the discovery is consonant with his notion of alphabetic diffusion and his surmises regarding Cadmus. In 1961 the first cuneiform artifacts in Greece were found- at the Cadmeion of Thebes. Velikovsky suggested to one of the philologists trying to decipher the artifacts that they represented an attempt to adapt cuneiform Hebrew to Greek: "This suggestion must have appeared bizarre and far-fetched, and I doubt whether he followed the clue." (19) The second prediction was even more preposterous: "In Jupiter and its moons we have a system not unlike the solar family. It appears probable to me that it sends out radio noises as do the sun and the stars." (20) ...

... the "canals" as fracture lines. In the February 1951 Sky and Telescope (a journal published by the Harvard College Observatory), Otto Struve, who had attacked Velikovsky in the New York Herald Tribune on the day before Worlds in Collision was published after failing to dissuade Atwater from publicly supporting Velikovsky, wrote that it "was a bizarre coincidence" that "a deluge of sound papers on various problems connected with collisions within the solar system" appeared in the same year as "the much-discussed Velikovsky book of science fiction." (11) In 1951 A. P. Okladnikov discovered ancient habitations in northeastern Siberia, where Velikovsky had predicted them. (12) In ...

... /newhome/headlines/ast12mar98_1 .htm Exotic-Looking Microbes Turn Up In Ancient Antarctic Ice March 13, 1998: Two scientists exploring a microworld locked in ancient ice have found a wide range of lifeforms from fungi, algae, and bacteria to a few diatoms - and a few items with strange shapes. "We've found some really bizarre things - things that we've never seen before," said Richard Hoover of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. Hoover and Dr. S.S . Abyzov of the Russian Academy of Sciences have been examining deep ice core samples from the Vostok Station about 1,000 km (620 miles)from the South Pole. The objects have ...

... ," Burns said. "The structure of the gossamer rings was totally unexpected," Belton added. "These images provide one of the most significant discoveries of the entire Galileo imaging experiment." Galileo took three dozen images of the rings and small moons during three orbits of Jupiter in 1996 and 1997. The four moons display "bizarre surfaces of undetermined composition that appear very dark, red and heavily cratered from meteoroid impacts," Veverka said. The rings contain very tiny particles resembling dark, reddish soot. Unlike Saturn's rings, there are no signs of ice in Jupiter's rings. Scientists believe that dust is kicked off the small moons when they are struck by interplanetary ...

... weigh as much as 26 kilograms. These massive pieces of [sic] dwarf lumps of natural glass found elsewhere. Also scattered about the site are clusters of sharp glass chips-the debris of prehistoric workshops-and ancient glass tools such as knives and hatchets, evidence of early interest in the silica glass. .. . Geologists have dreamt up some pretty bizarre theories to explain the origins of this remarkable material." One suggestion is that the glass may have formed at the bottom of a warm volcanic lake. But there were no hydroxide ions usually found in such glass and "geologists dated the glass at 28.5 million years old [while] the dried-up remains of the ancient lakes ...

BATTERY ACID CHEMICAL FOUND ON JUPITER'S MOON EUROPA Sulfuric acid- a corrosive chemical found on Earth in car batteries- exists on the frozen surface of Jupiter's icy moon Europa. "This demonstrates once again that Europa is a really bizarre place," said Dr. Robert Carlson of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, CA. "Sulfuric acid occurs in nature, but it isn't plentiful. You're not likely to find sulfuric acid on Earth's beaches, but on Europa, it covers large portions of the surface." The new findings from NASA's Galileo ...

... cosmology shown to exhibit more strangeness than in compact high energy phenomena in deep space. A report in the journal Nature of 15 November proposes that a recently discovered star "is made of an exotic stuff called strange matter', never yet seen on Earth". In other words, it may be a "strange star". This bizarre suggestion comes out of the mathematics describing stars that generate rapid pulses of radiation, commonly called "pulsars". The x-ray pulses are thought to be due to a rotating beam of x-rays that flashes toward the Earth once per revolution like a cosmic lighthouse. See picture at: ...

... . In his first response so far, there has been very little substantive commentary on my remarks, but, on the other hand, he hasn't heard many of them before now [actually, Velikovsky had heard almost all of them before], so I don't object to that. The idea of oxygen burning fires on Venus is very bizarre, because Venus would come from Jupiter. Jupiter has an excuse of hydrogen. There can be no oxygen on Jupiter. It would all have been reacted with hydrogen to form water. Therefore, there should be no oxygen on Venus, and, indeed, there is none, as has been clearly shown by ground-based spectroscopic observations. ...
