441. What is Uniformitarianism and how did it get here? [Journals] [Horus]
... the alternate possibility is almost completely ignored. Yet we are faced with an ancient history in which the principal memories of the race seem to involve the occurrence of world -shattering, natural disaster. This is the real issue at hand here. How can we reconcile the traditional scientific conception of uniformitarian evolution with the obsession of the ancient mind that celestial catastrophe was the agent of change? HORUS wishes to thank C. Leroy Ellenberger of St. Louis for calling attention to the first complete translation of the Egyptian Pyramid Texts, and the very clear history of a celestial catastrophe written there. According to the texts, a gigantic celestial explosion, possibly a supernova, produced a worldwide catastrophe ...
442. James Hutton: A Non-inductive, Theological Catastrophist [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... they invoked ad hoc gradualist models. When this could not be done, as, for example, to explain away a 1300-foot beach in the Andes mountains and other high beaches elsewhere, without numerous intermediate beaches between them and the sea, the geologist and geophysicist critics ignored this evidence in unison- thereby denying the facts to themselves. Velikovsky's correct celestial predictions, which ran counter to the prevailing expectations of the astronomical community, were also treated this way. How, then, did this uniformitarian concept grow to be so influential? In all geology classes taught at universities, this gradualist interpretation is presented (as it was when I studied geology) as the only correct, permissible approach ...
443. Venus: A Battle Star? [Journals] [Horus]
... From: Horus Vol. 1 No. 2 (Summer 1985) Home | Issue Contents Venus: A Battle Star?by C.E . Bowen Introduction Measurement of time by celestial cycles and concern with the calendar played a much more visible role in ancient civilizations than in our own. In ancient times, the calendar was not merely a device to mark the days, weeks, and months of the year. The calendar system was perceived religiously and the priests gave the astronomical gods, active, vital roles in daily affairs. As a result, each day was different, depending upon which astronomical gods were believed to control or influence a particular phase of the calendar ...
444. Velikovsky and Tangun [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... and Ev Cochrane- have tended to be more ahistorical and less euhemeristic than Velikovsky. In their view, the various legendary founder-kings such as Yao, Menes of Egypt, Minos of Crete, and so on (see, for example, Cochrane 1984), were not human rulers at all but anthropomorphizations of the planet Saturn, the original celestial god-king. These founder-kings were generally credited with teaching the basic arts of civilization and morality to a rude mankind. Neither Velikovsky nor the Saturnists- nor any other catastrophic revisionist that I know of- have examined the story of Tangun, the mythic founder of Korea. This is somewhat surprising, not only because Koreans claim for themselves one ...
445. The New Science of Immanuel Velikovsky [Journals] [Kronos]
... . It was Velikovsky's thesis that, in the ancient myths, legends and religious origins of man, we find reliable evidence that the earth and its people have experienced and recorded a series of devastating cosmic catastrophes. The parallels between Vico and Velikovsky should not be pushed too far; Vico's understanding of myth, for instance, was ethnological not celestial. The Vico renaissance, however, links up in a significant way with the work of Velikovsky to form the subject of the present paper. It is its thesis that, in certain instances, myth is a more reliable method than any other for reporting events, and, secondly, that a new science of man demands a recognition ...
446. Cosmic Imagery Prom the Time of Joseph [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... that lasted for seven years in the time of Joseph seems to have been a natural enough occurrence. We hear that it was widespread, affecting Egypt, Phoenicia, Arabia and Palestine (1 ). There are no indications from the text of Genesis of anything extraordinary that might underlie this famine. Nor does Josephus mention any concomitant plagues, celestial events, or archangels. In the legends collected by Ginsberg there is hardly a hint of anything amiss in the time of Joseph. However, suspicions are roused on reading a rather curious, and on the surface, far-fetched story to which Ginsberg devotes several pages (2 ). This is a tale of how Judah confronts Joseph over ...
447. The Earth Chronicles (Review) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Sumerian records and posits the existence of another planet- Nibiru- which is the home of "the gods" reported in all ancient cultures, and traces their record on our planet, Earth. The second work, Stairway to Heaven (1980) penetrates the record of human attempts to recognize, communicate with, and work with these periodic celestial visitors. It offers a shockingly radical interpretation of ancient high mystery cults, particularly Egyptian, and those readers with an open mind will find their understanding of myth greatly enhanced. For those who feel most comfortable with myth as a reality-based phenomenon, Sitchin's presentation of another force operating periodically on Earth will open up entirely new possibilities about the ...
448. Solaria Binaria [Books] [de Grazia books]
... . Mountains were absent as well. The globe was luminescent but not brightly lit, for the Sun was not visible as such. The skies were always cloudy, and the clouds dropped fresh water, usually in condensations. Occasional rains replenished shallow seas, swamps, and ponds. Hundreds of miles above, a canopy of waters diffused the celestial light. This canopy sky became part of the traits of the great god "Heaven" or "Uranus" to the first true humans, as will be detailed in the next chapter. The Moon was absent from the sky. The climate was equable and warm. The atmosphere contained oxygen and supported a nitrogen cycle. Most of ...
449. Letters. C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2002:1 (Jul 2002) Home | Issue Contents Letters Celestial Images Moe Mandelkehr's previous work showing that Earth suffered a major catastrophe around 2300BC has been very convincing but his attempt to explain the world's mythology by suggesting that a ring around the Earth, composed of dust from a meteoroid stream, could have provided all the requisite images falls short of explaining many aspects of myth ( 'The Ring Around the Earth around 2300 BC', C&CR 2001:2 , pp. 8-17). He describes it as dust over the north polar region but later suggests it formed a ring at a 70º inclination around the entire Earth ...
... of "fire" associated with the mentioned "joy stick." Both are irrelevant as far as cosmological terminology is concerned, but they lent the linguistic vehicle which was used to carry the ideas of astronomy and alchemy. It should be stated right now that "fire" is actually a great circle reaching from the North Pole of the celestial sphere to its South Pole, whence such strange utterances as Rigveda 5.13.6 : "Agni! How the felly [n5 The rim of the wheel in which the spokes fit.] the spokes, thus you surround the gods." (Agni is the so-called "fire-god," or the personified fire.) ...
