61. Failure of a Concept? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... can deny that a discussion of the revised chronology involving historical methodology, Biblical studies, Anatolian archaeology, Egyptology, Astronomy and Radiocarbon Dating is interdisdplinary! (And this, not counting the debate on celestial mechanics held the following day.) I am also curious to know what Marx means by "quasi-disciplined", particularly in view of his bizarre statement that the "Velikovsky Affair" has demonstrated that "the so-called scientific method is unreliable". If we abandon scientific methods, how does Marx propose we evaluate Velikovsky's theories? Guesswork? Blind faith? I think Velikovsky deserves better. Marx's complaint, as I understand it, is that the catastrophist models outlined in Worlds in Collision ...
62. Conference: Our Violent Solar System [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... , out-of-control to be useful) can lend insight into the scratchings on cliff walls and pyramids. Dwardu tells me that he picked up a gem from listening to Halton Arp which helps solve some major problems in his research. Arp tells me that the seminar broadened his knowledge of ancient records and stimulated his thinking about possible explanations behind their rather bizarre stories. And all this this may somehow lead to a better understanding of "Our Violent Solar System." ...
63. Saturn before the Sun [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... at closer proximity than is possible at present. Without going into too much detail, it will then be proposed, as it has already been by others, that Earth had once been a satellite of the planet Saturn. Thus the ancient view of Saturn would have been entirely different from the present view. But even if this proposal, bizarre in the extreme, fails to capture the acceptance of mythologists, to say nothing of astronomers, it still behooves mythologists to rectify their misconceptions and represent the beliefs of our ancient forefathers correctly before they embark on any attempts at interpreting them. ...
64. Newton And Historical Science [Journals] [Kronos]
... person as Thutmose III. d) The invasion of Egypt by the Hyksos took place after the Exodus, not before. e) Current Greek chronology must be shortened by about five hundred years, eliminating what today we call the Greek Dark Ages. According to Newton, the Trojan War took place one generation before Homer. It is rather bizarre that Newton used this chronological scheme in order to dismiss the evidence for the occurrence of past cometary impacts. It seems that he built his chronology when he was still in agreement with Whiston and used it later for a different purpose. The new scheme of chronology is used by Newton in order to justify more far-fetched historical theories. The ...
65. Horizons [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 7th-century version of the Epic from Assurbanipal's library is merely a copy of a much earlier work, fragments of which date from as early as the 10th century. His somewhat incautious approach to a specialist field also seems to have resulted in numerous contentions (as yet unsupported) which will jar on those familiar with his subject, such as the bizarre statement that it is "fully accepted in even the most conservative archaeological circles" that the Egyptian city of Heliopolis, "together with the city Of Athens", is mentioned in the records of Sargon II.] KRONOS V:4 begins with a fascinating study by R. J. JAARSMA and E. L. ODENWALD of ...
66. Habiru and Hebrew [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the Hebrews under the Davidic Dynasty. Therefore I cannot accept that the proposed habiru/ ibrim identification gives any grounds in itself for synchronising the El Amarna period and the events of I Samuel. The Bubble Can you remember what you were doing when you heard the news of President Kennedy's assassination? Neither can I. Why do we hear the bizarre assertion so often? Sometimes a phrase or an idea catches the imagination, and increases both its currency and its force by a sort of snowballing or ballooning effect. So it is with the comparison of David's band with the Habiru of the El Amarna letters. Following in Velikovsky's footsteps, David Rohl's 1995 book A Test of Time is ...
67. An Amnesia Victim: Ch.1 Of Racial Memory (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... and hostility, pathological inclinations and sexual aberrations, criminal impulses and acts, suicide and murder, or detachment from reality and flight into madness can be traced by correctly applied analytical procedure to impressions erased from the conscious memory, traumatic occurrences obliterated- in short, to contents submerged. From the mind's dark recesses they pilot the personality toward its bizarre behavior and, not seldom, toward a repetition of the traumatic experience. This repetition is sought in the form of a return to the scene of the first experience, or in a fixation on abnormal sexual objects, or in selection of an occupation offering a regular substitute for an act repressed from the conscious memory. In Jenseits des ...
68. Pleiongaea: A Myth for all Seasons [Journals] [Aeon]
... direct revolution. But, because of the mass differential, the Moon orbits Earth in something under 30 days, while Triton orbits Neptune in a little less than six days. The planetary system of Neptune-Triton is not classed as a binary, whereas- without a hypothetical massive atmospheric overburden- the Earth-Moon system is . So, if such a bizarre primordial history of Earth did once entail, then over the uniformitarian eons we would have gradually lost our postulated majestic atmosphere, with an accompanying loss in angular momentum and a subsequent slowing down of Earth's rotation. As things stand, Earth now has a 24 hour day, while Neptune's is slightly less than 16. However, we are ...
69. "Copernicus? Who Is He?", Atwater Thrown Overboard. File I (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... The timing of this first collision in the solar system claimed to have been observed by modern scientists, with the appearance of the article, took on the quality of a strange coincidence. Struve will write: Once again we have the question of "worlds in collision" and the resulting fragmentation of planetary and meteoric bodies. It is a bizarre coincidence that 1950, which produced the much-discussed Velikovsky book of science fiction, also produced a deluge of sound papers on various problems connected with collisions within the solar system. To this "deluge," according to Struve, will also belong a paper by Fred Whipple and Salah Hamid describing two real collisions between a comet and swarms of ...
70. The SIS Silver Jubilee Event, September 1999 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... problem which was answered by one of our Australian delegates who was duly presented with a cuddly Brain of 99' toy. The raffle also took place during the evening and several celebrators happily went home with such topical memorabilia as CD Roms and an edition of Pensée. Sunday morning was kick started by Dwardu Cardona outlining what he himself called the bizarre' theory of the Saturnian configuration as constructed over decades of mythological research. Before his audience had time to fully muster their incredulity, Wal Thornhill masterfully gave them some solid astronomical reasons to keep their doubts in abeyance as he outlined recent challenges to the even more incredible modern ideas of cosmology and presented us with the alternative theory of an ...
