151. Worship Of The Morning Star, Part 1 Venus Ch.9 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... storm and fire. The planet Venus was Lux Divina, the Divine Light, in the worship of the Roman imperial colonies.(65) In Babylonia, Venus was pictured as a six-pointed star which is also the shape of David's shield- or as a pentagram- a five-pointed star (seal of Solomon)- and sometimes as a cross; as a cross it was pictured in Mexico, too. The attributes and deeds of the Morning Star was not invented by the peoples of the world: this star shattered mountains, shook the globe with such a violence, that it looked as if the heavens were shaking, was a storm, a cloud, a fire, ...
152. The Cosmic Double Helix [Journals] [Aeon]
... not make much of a difference in the final analysis, I will keep the categories formally apart, beginning with the representations where the central rod is missing. Medieval European tradition is brimming with images of intertwining serpents. The symbol of the entwined worms or serpents was common in Gnosticism. [3 ] A decoration in the 10th century High Cross Monasterboice from County Louth, Ireland, shows a hand placed within a set of concentric rings surmounting two intertwining dragons making three loops between which are placed three heads. [4 ] As in the case of the Sumerian cylinder seals, the number of loops amounts once more to three and the depiction of three heads within these loops forges ...
153. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Six [Books]
... exploits were described earlier, and the Lords of Xibalba (the Underworld). The latter challenge the former to a game which is to be played in the Underworld, and in order to get to the game the hero brothers must make a rather perilous journey in the course of which their challengers hope to see them destroyed. Successfully they cross a river of corruption and a river of blood, and thereafter come to the junction of four roads, the black, white, red and green roads. They determine the correct route to Xibalba and with the help of a mosquito not only do they foil an attempt to make them look foolish (by getting them to salute some ...
154. Ancient Mysteries (Book Review) [Journals] [Aeon]
... . His son, John of Gaunt, was the grandfather of the early 15th century Portuguese regnal explorer Henry the Navigator. The name of Arthur's father, Uther Pendragon, is probably Welsh, from pen (head) and dracon (formidable serpent), meaning chief or head of a militant clan. The parallels with a historical Riothamus who crossed over to France and was defeated by the Goths through treachery are tempting when considering an equally historic Arthur who was also brought down by perfidy. But, as the authors point out, it's sketchy at best. On Troy: Around 830 AD, Nennius the Monk wrote his rather brief History of the British Isles with "the fantastic ...
155. Horeb: The Mountain of God [Journals] [SIS Review]
... like smoke from a furnace and the whole mountain shook violently (Exodus 19:16-19). So, yet another piece of the evidence fits into place: once again it is convention, not Velikovsky, that is puzzled. If the Jebel al-Lawz was Horeb, this also means that Pi-Khiroth and Baal Zephon, at which point the Israelites crossed the Sea of Passage, were located on either end of the narrow strait at the southern end of the Gulf of Aqaba. But this then begs the question: why would Moses (or whoever it was led the fleeing Israelites) have taken the exiles so far south, into what is basically a dead end, at the southern ...
156. The Passing of Elijah [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... him not. [II Kings 2:8-11,13-15, 17) We can now restate the biblical account with the benefit of added insight. As Elijah and Elisha approached the Jordan River the earth heaved, apparently without any nearby fracturing. The river bed rose so that the waters receded to the left and right. After the two crossed, the earth settled, and the waters resumed their flow.[8 ] Anticipating Elijah's departure, Elisha asked for "a double portion of his spirit." Elijah said the request would be granted if Elisha witnessed his leaving; that is, Elisha would have to be near by. As the earth was heaving the electric field ...
157. Pallas Athene, Part 1 Venus Ch.9 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... to the quinquatrus of the Roman farmer's calendar, the nineteenth of March, five days after the full moon. Ovid says that Minerva was born on that day, she being the Pallas Athene of the Greeks."(23) The nineteenth of March was Minerva's day. The first appearance of Athene-Minerva took place on the day the Israelites crossed the Red Sea. The night between the thirteenth and the fourteenth days of the first month after the vernal equinox was the night of the great earthshock; six days later, on the last day of Passover week, according to the Hebrew tradition, the waters were heaped up like mountains and the fugitives crossed on the dry bed of ...
... few hours, they were pressed by the calls of hunger, and resolved that Jamblichus, one of their number, should secretly return to the city to purchase bread for the use of his companions. The youth could no longer recognize the once familiar aspect of his native country, and his surprise was increased by the appearance of a large cross triumphantly erected over the principal gate of Ephesus. His singular dress and obsolete language confounded the baker, to whom he offered an ancient medal of Decius as the current coin of the empire ; and Jamblichus, on the suspicion of a secret treasure, was dragged before the judge. Their mutual inquiries produced the amazing discovery, that two ...
159. The Periodic Cyclicism Of Ancient Catastrophes [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... ancient languages? (4 ) If so, how close did Mars come to the Earth, measuring planet center to center? (5 ) If so, how frequently did Mars assault the Earth? Eight of the nine planets orbit on one single plane, the ecliptic plane. The only exception is remote Pluto. If a marauding planet crossed the Earth's orbit once, going out toward aphelion, then (being coplanar) it would also have to cross the Earth's orbit a second time, when approaching perihelion. 56 VELIKOVSKIAN Vol. V, No. 1 Only once in ancient Hebrew literature is there a calendared date given for the onset of a catastrophe, and that happens ...
160. Ancient Greeks in America [Journals] [Aeon]
... an accurate statement of distance. It seems clear that Greenland, together with the coasts of Canada and the United States, is what, in the ancient Greek mind, formed the "continent by which the great sea is encircled" on its far side from Europe. "The sea at this point of the route is difficult to be crossed by great vessels, and the opinion arose in ancient times that it was frozen." [7 ] Continuing on the sailing route set out by Plutarch, we now come to a frozen sea which is "difficult to be crossed by great vessels." This, undoubtedly, has to be the Labrador Sea. Here, in ...
