161. 1895 And 1950: The Time Was Ripe For A Heresy. Ch.17 Supplement (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... and eighty years ago, in 1773, Pierre Simon de Laplace (1748 -1927), then twenty-three years old, stood before the Academie des Sciences in Paris and read a paper in which he proved the stability of the solar system: all deflections of the planets from their paths are only periodic oscillations from their mean courses; and the celestial mechanism is wound up to go on for ever. Laplace's contemporary, Jean Baptiste Lamarck (17441829), set out to demonstrate in a series of works that this earth has ever been an abode of peaceful evolution, free from spasmodic disturbances, in opposition to the dominant views of his day. These ideas of harmony or stability in ...
162. Celestial Mechanics of the Half-century Venus Interval [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1990 No 1 (June 1990) Home | Issue Contents Celestial Mechanics of the Half-century Venus Interval by Robert B. Driscoll Immanuel Velikovsky deduced two close approaches of Venus to Earth separated by an interval of 52 years (archives of pre-Columbian Mexico) or of 50 years (Jubilee year of the Israelites) [1 ]. Ragnar Forshufvud showed that the large stretched orbit of Velikovsky's Venus could have been shrunk and circularised gradually, over several centuries before and after its encounters with Earth, by the aerodynamic drag on its extended atmosphere caused by a temporary circumsolar disc of gas extending to 2 astronomical units [2 ]. Such a circularisation process ...

164. Preface (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... From "Worlds in Collision" © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Preface Worlds in Collision is a book of wars in the celestial sphere that took place in historical times. In these wars the planet earth participated too. This book describes two acts of a great drama: one that occurred thirty-four to thirty-five centuries ago, in the middle of the second millennium before the present era; the other in the eighth and the beginning of the seventh century before the present era, twenty-six centuries ago. Accordingly, this volume consists of two parts, preceded by a prologue. Harmony or stability in the celestial and terrestrial spheres is the point of departure of ...
165. Writing The Epilogue. File I (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... MATTER, including the preface, is usually sent to the printer after the book has been set and the proofs read. In the case of Worlds in Collision, I deliberated with myself about the last pages of the Epilogue, set and proofread: whether to include them in, or omit them from, the book. They dealt with celestial mechanics. In the Epilogue I discussed the problems solved and the new problems that presented themselves in the fields of history and chronology, Bible criticism, development of religion, mass psychology, geology, paleontology, astronomy, and physics. I wrote: Having discovered some historical facts and having solved a few problems, we are faced with ...

Electro-Gravitic Theory of Celestial Motion & Cosmology presents a revolutionary explanation of celestial motion which challenges Albert Einstein's theory of General Relativity and Isaac Newton's view that gravity and intertia are the only forces which generate celestial motion. Employing ...
167. Perception and Ancient Astronomy [Journals] [Horus]
... you see is not necessarily what you get. The' picture fluctuates with every new discovery; one or another physical model gains or loses support and the whole vacillates in clarity and form, somewhat like a poorly tuned television image with more than one station on the same channel. As a result, modern urban people lose contact with the celestial environment in two ways: 1) they can't see it clearly if they look and 2) the disembodied, supra-sensory visions supplied by modern astronomy are not what they would see if the night-sky were perfectly visible. This causes no difficulty for the science of astronomy itself, but it obscures for others the critical role of the starry sky ...
168. Conclusion [Books]
... fire. Mythologists quickly despair of rational explanation. But it is the thesis of this book that the confusion results chiefly from the failure of the modern age to discern the underlying cosmic order to which the myths refer. Our reconstruction of this order includes the following elements: In the earliest age recalled by man the planet Saturn was the dominant celestial body. Ancient races the world over record that there was once a "Golden Age"- a kingdom of cosmic harmony ruled by a central light god. Numerous sources identify this light god as the planet Saturn. Accounts of Saturn's appearance suggest that the planet hung ominously close to the earth. In early ritual and astronomy Saturn appears ...
169. Return to the Paelo-Saturnian Ssystem (Forum) [Journals] [Aeon]
... , adom (red) doesn't mean the crimson we naturally think of, the pure red of Mars, but connotes a reddish-brown, as in parah adumah, the "red" heifer. Another major correction that needs to be pointed out concerns the "garments of light"  which Cardona uses as evidence of Adam and Hawwah's celestial identity.  This is a totally incorrect translation. Or, spelled aleph-waw-resh, does mean light; but or, spelled ayin-waw-resh, means "skin," the skin, or hide, of animals. It's easy to verify: The skins stretched over the desert tabernacles are called oroth taHashim (that is "taHash skins ...
170. The Celestial Harmony, Prologue Ch.1 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... From "Worlds in Collision" © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Celestial Harmony The sun rises in the east and sets in the west. The day consists of twenty-four hours. The year consists of 365 days, 5 hours, and 49 minutes. The moon circles around the earth, changing its phases- crescent, full, decrescent. The terrestrial axis points in the direction of the polar star. After winter comes spring, then summer and fall. These are common facts. Are they invariable laws? Must it be so forever? Was it so always? The sun has nine planets. Mercury has no satellites; Venus has no ...
