191. Velikovsky and his Critics by Shane Mage [Books]
... Noah, Nimrod, Lot, Job, Moses, Joshua. Ahaz, Sennacherib - every story recounts a miracle as bizarre as the misadventure of Phaethon. For the formerly dominant ideology of the West, Christian Supernaturalism, these ancient stories are still revealed truth not to be questioned on pain of heresy, a stern warning against disobedience to the Celestial God or His Earthly Vicars. The presently dominant ideology, Humanistic Evolutionism, knows no abrupt changes in the natural order, no interplanetary cataclysms, only slow evolution over huge aeons of geological time, brought about by processes still proceeding uniformly as they did millions of years ago. Nature makes no leaps. The Bible stories are obviously but ...
192. Facing Many Problems, Part 2 Epilogue (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... miracle with the sun and the moon is not a tale for the credulous. We learned why there are common ideas in the folklore of peoples separated by oceans, and we recognized the importance of world upheavals in the content of leg ends and why the planets were deified and which planet was represented by Pallas Athene, and what is the celestial plot of the Iliad and in what period this epic was created, and why the Roman people made Mars their national god and progenitor of the found ers of Rome. We came to understand the real meaning of the messages of the Hebrew prophets Amos, Isaiah, Joel, Micah, and others. We were able also to ascertain ...
193. Stars, Galaxies and Electro-Gravitic Theory [Journals] [Aeon]
... the surface. In this respect let us examine these clusters of old stars that form spheres. See figure 3. Figure 3 The classes of bodies that form spheres are the nuclei of spiral galaxies, globular clusters, elliptical galaxies and clusters of elliptical galaxies. In each instance, as one travels from the outer limits of these spherical, celestial structures inward to the center, the number of components--stars or galaxies--increases. In other words, the density of mass at the center becomes greater as would that of any gravitational body of very large mass. In the center of these structures is found an extremely massive body. The center of the cluster of galaxies contains a CD galaxy which ...
194. On Gravitating Electrified Bodies [Books] [de Grazia books]
... strength of the gravitational force (relative to, say, the electrical force) weakens with time (Dirac; Jordan; Dicke, 1957, p356; Hoyle and Narlikar; Canuto et al., p834). If indeed the relative strength of the gravitational force declines with time, it means that the mechanical units customarily used to describe celestial motions cannot be interchanged freely with the units employed in atomic physics. Also there is evidence that the gravitational constant varies between experiments (Heyl and Chrzanowski, p1, pp30-1; Long, 1974). The experiments can be interpreted as evidence that the gravitational constant of proportionality is a function of the spatial separation between the masses gravitating and ...
195. Morning Star II [Journals] [Aeon]
... on Origen's part. Other commentators, on the other hand, seem to have had no trouble in interpreting the words of Isaiah. Most recently, Krupp has voiced the belief of those who had tread the same ground before him in interpreting the fall of Helel from heaven as being descriptive of the manner in which Venus drops "from its celestial station into the fire of the sun and invisible death in the underworld." (10) Also: ". .. Isaiah's treatment of Venus tells us that the planet was consumed by its sense of its own importance. In that sense, Venus is guilty of pride. It scales the eastern wall of heaven ahead of the ...
... .D . Vaucouleurs] "Yes, of course. They would have acclaimed it as something great. The greatest discovery of a great man." Alan Lightman, Roberta Brower, Ongins. . . The Lives and World of Modern Cosmologists, (Cambridge MA 1990) p. 93. Originality and predictions Velikovsky's theory is based on celestial catastrophes that he claims occurred in ancient historical times. From his analysis of celestial events described in ancient legends and myths, Velikovsky drew conclusions and made advanced claims-predictions. Lionel Rubinov, professor of philosophy at Trent University in Canada explains, "He [Velikovsky] starts with myth and literature, developing hypotheses from these areas which he then ...
197. Thoth Vol II, No. 8: May 15, 1998 [Journals] [Thoth]
... I think there's a very good reason to care about myth, even though myth as a whole may seem to speak a language too obscure for rational, feet-on-the-ground folk. Myth is, I believe, a window to early human history, a more intense period of history than we've realized. The myths have their roots in a time of celestial catastrophe, and more often than not the appearance of confusion results from viewing myth as something other than what it is. In the course of cultural evolution and scientific advance, we left behind the fabled "long ago," whose images seemed wholly out of touch with our own world. Yet my personal conviction is that ancient myth ...
198. Odin [Journals] [Kronos]
... Britain.(15) Seen thus, Odin reminds one of the Babylonian Nergal at the head of his demons, (16) the Greek Ares with his "never resting horrible creatures",(17) or the Vedic Indra leading his terrible Maruts.(18) Students of Velikovsky may therefore recognize Odin/Woden and his furious celestial army as the planet Mars when, according to Velikovsky, it plagued the Earth as it brushed close with its accompanying brood of comets during the 8th and 7th centuries B.C .( 19) Nergal's and Ares' identity as Mars has never been contested. Velikovsky's identification of Indra as the same planet, on the other hand ...
199. On Comets and Kings [Journals] [Aeon]
... significant to find that they too linked Venus with ominous portents. The Chin Shu, for example, an astronomical text compiled in c. 635 A. D., yet based on more ancient traditions, contains a list of 21 types of "ominous" or "evil" stars, this being their term for comets and other frightening celestial apparitions such as novae. The 19th type of "ominous star" was known as "long-path" (chhang-keng). This comet was said to herald the outbreak of war and was described as like a roll of cloth which extends across the heavens. (43) The very same name, however, was also applied to the ...
200. San Francisco, February 25, 1974 [Journals] [Pensee]
... opportunity to challenge this: I would like to ask Professor Mulholland whether he knows who was the first to claim- in time- the heat [of the moon].... I would like to ask, also, whether there is an explanation for the mascons on the moon [other than that they result from encounters with other massive celestial bodies]. And besides, do you consider these two observations as fundamental theories? Mulholland: I regret to say I do not in fact know who might have [been the first to predict these findings] .. . and I blushingly admit that [Dr. Velikovsky] has put his finger on a weak point in my ...
