... 3 It was all the same Flood as confirmed in every direction. Deucalion was preserved by having been "forewarned" by Father Prometheus, and I shall suggest that the hatter was in reality an active volcano, which by premonitory action gave Deucalion warning of worse to follow. Volcanoes are not infrequently thrown into abortive eruption by the action of celestial phenomena sometimes long in advance of a major eruption when the mountain is struck and perhaps destroyed. Such was the course of events in this historic case. When the bodv fell, vast gases liquified (hydrogen and nitrogen) and there ensued the inundation of which Diodorus tells, and as painted vividly in Greek legendry. Its reality was ...
452. The Calendar of Coligny [Journals] [Horus]
... , at one time or another, formed the basis of calendar systems for numerous civilizations. The Babylonians, the Hindus, the Jews, the Greeks and the Romans each employed the scheme at some point in their history; in fact, several of these are still in use at the present time. Since the 19-year cycle is a universal celestial phenomenon, it is natural that well-defined, fundamental similarities will be found between calendar systems based on it. It is small, arbitrary and relatively inconsequential differences that distinguish one from another, minor variations on the universal theme. These differences, in the main, represent cultural and religious influences rather than technical divergences. The invariable elements of ...
453. Thoth Vol I, No. 20: August 3, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... evidence will be seen as something else, as confirmation of the recklessness and confusion of myth, another reason not to take myth seriously. The question is not asked because the "Velikovskian" field of study lacks all credibility in the eyes of mainstream authorities. Thus the Mayan scholar Peter Joralemon explained the highly unnatural convergence of symbols on the celestial dragon- The primary concern of Olmec art is the representation of creatures that are biologically impossible. Such mythological beings exist in the mind of man, not in the world of nature. It's easy to see how one might draw this conclusion. But if the symbolism lacks any roots in "the world of nature" and is simply the ...
... on the moon and lunar internal heat. Again Velikovsky rose to the floor, asking Mulholland three questions: did he know who had been the first to predict the lunar heat (Velikovsky believed the correct answer was Velikovsky, in 1969); was there any explanation for mascons besides Velikovsky's own postulation that they were caused by encounters with massive celestial bodies; and did Mulholland regard either case as an example of acceptance of revolutionary "fundamental theories"? Mulholland conceded that he did not know who had been the first to predict the phenomena he cited and "blushingly" admitted that his examples were "observations and determinations rather than theoretical suggestions." (13) Next, King ...
455. Reconsidering Velikovsky [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Service which will be able to supply the proceedings of the conference when they are published. The talks were attended by 40 or 50 people in most cases and 80 at the inaugural lecture. Friday evening, August 17th Victor Clube: The Dynamics of Armageddon SIS members will remember Professor Clube speaking, on two occasions, on his theory of celestial catastrophism which has great similarity to Velikovsky's in his use of mythology as a source for what happened on Earth and what people saw and experienced, though his agents are not the planets of the Solar System behaving like billiard balls. His agent is instead a gigantic comet, which he names Typhon, and which was first perceived coming from ...
456. Transcript of the Morning Session of the A.A.A.S. Symposium [Articles]
... a chance for some more discussion, which I hope will be brief. Remember, we have two full hours for discussion this evening, and we have one more speaker after both Mulholland and Sagan. So let me introduce the next speaker, Professor J. Derral Mulholland, of the University of Texas, in Austin, who is a celestial mechanician whose name is almost synonymous with high precision. [laughter] MULHOLLAND: [Mulholland's preliminary remarks, not included in his paper, were as follows:] Before I am asked the question, I would like to point out that I first read Dr. Velikovsky's work in 1950 in Collier's magazine [what Collier's printed was the ...
457. Origins of the Zodiac and some Horological Problems [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Contents Origins of the Zodiac and some Horological Problems Michael G. Reade THERE is a distinct similarity between the signs of the zodiac and the face of a modern clock. The 12 zodiacal signs are equally spaced around the zodiac, which consists of a belt of stars sited close to the ecliptic, marking a single complete great circle on the celestial sphere formed by the heavens. The sun passes once through each of the 12 signs in the course of a year; the moon passes through each of 13 signs in the course of a month (or did, when the year was precisely divisible into 12 months of equal length). The sun and the moon therefore have many ...
458. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... that the evidence opposes Velikovsky's views, and this conference will provide the opportunity to bring the major issues in the debate to the attention of a wider audience, with qualified speakers on both sides. One section of the programme will consider the astronomical basis of Egyptian chronology and another the evidence of radiocarbon dates. A consideration of the implications for celestial mechanics is also likely to be included. The Society is assisting with preparations for the Conference, and speakers will include a number whose names are already familiar to members of the Society and readers of its Review, as well as scholars from British universities. Dr. Velikovsky has expressed his intention to participate, and invitations have also been ...
459. A Note On Shakespeare's Cataclysmic Imagery [Journals] [Kronos]
... : Kronos Vol. VI No. 3 (Spring 1981) Home | Issue Contents A Note On Shakespeare's Cataclysmic Imagery Richard J. Jaarsma In two recent issues of KRONOS (V :4 and VI:1 ), I published articles (with Edward Odenwald) in which I explained Shakespeare's imagery of catastrophism in terms of a series of celestial, meteorological, and geological catastrophes that afflicted England and Europe from approximately 1550 to 1616. Actual catastrophes, afflicting Elizabethan life, we argued, gave impetus to and confirmed a fear already there that the world was coming to an end. It is not surprising, then, that Shakespeare's imagery should reflect a concern over catastrophism. Irving ...

... to the earth would act with greater effect. A comet with a head as large as the earth, passing sufficiently close, would raise the waters of the oceans miles high.(1 ) The slowing down or stasis of the earth in its rotation would cause a tidal recession of water toward the poles,(2 ) but the celestial body near by would disturb this poleward recession, drawing the water toward itself. The traditions of many peoples persist that seas were torn apart and their water heaped high and thrown upon the continents. In order to establish that these traditions refer to one and the same event, or at least to an event of the same order, ...
