81. Velikovsky's Sources Volume One [Books]
... attributed to the plagues in The Book of Exodus beyond the Divine intervention promised in Ex.3 :20.) Finally, V sees the parting of the Red Sea as a direct result of the huge tidal forces associated with the Venus Comet. The fact that the comet let go of the sea just as pharaoh and his men were crossing is an extraordinary coincidence' that V passes over in silence! (At any rate, V seems to have found no cometary explanation' for Ex.I4:26- 27, in which the Red Sea engulfs the Egyptians in response to Moses stretching out his hand. On the contrary, on p.294 he ends up ...

... iron ore, which retained the imprint of the fibres. . . . " The indications are that the filled cavity had originally been a sort of cave, and that the supposed matting was more probably a layer of twigs, rushes, or weeds, which the inhabitants of the cave had used as a bed, as the fibre marks cross each other irregularly. The ore bed in which the remains were found, and part of which seems to have formed after the period of human occupation of the cave, lies in the second (or saccharoidal) sandstone of the Lower Silurian." Note the facts: The remains of this man are found separated-part are eighteen feet below ...

But I am getting ahead of myself, so here is a brief summary of the these last creations. Na-Te' K'an "First-Tree-Precious" also known as the Foliated Cross.

... .. ." May I be permitted to offer an origin? The word Danaus is a phonetic transcription [by the Greeks] of Ta-nu-it, the place of Nut's sycamore. In Egyptian mythology the goddess Nut gave birth to Osiris under a sycamore, and the heart wood of that tree was needed to make the Ankh, or life-giving cross. From the Third Dynasty on Egypt became the "Land of the Sycamores". Further information on all this can be found in Albert Slosman's La Grande Hypothese. - Gordon Turner, Montfort l'Amoury, France Information Please!Dear Sir, In my letter, "Eric Crew and the Tippe-top" (Workshop 4:3 , pp ...
85. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1986 No 1 (Jul 1986) Home | Issue Contents Letters Electrical Nature of the Solar System Dear Sir, In the October, 1985 issue of SOUTHERN CROSS, the journal of the Canberra Astronomical Society, I had an article published dealing with the electrical nature of cometary phenomena, with Ralph Juergen's ideas firmly in mind but unmentioned. Instead I drew attention to an article in the SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN for July 27, 1872 entitled "The Nature of Comets", which showed clearly that an electrical explanation for a comet's tail was then considered to be acceptable. After putting my money on the 100+ year old explanation and rather unsubtly highlighting ...
86. On Velikovsky's Orbits [Journals] [SIS Review]
... was a consultant for the European Space Operations Centre on the calculations of artificial space trajectories and became a Professor at the University of Hertfordshire. He is now a minister of the United Reformed Church. Introduction In Worlds in Collision [1 ] Velikovsky introduced a catastrophic scenario, in which the planets Venus and Mars moved on highly eccentric orbits that crossed the Earth's and caused catastrophic destruction which was witnessed by man's early ancestors. In 1950, when his book was published, the Space Age had not started and digital computing was in its infancy. It was believed that the orbits of all the known astronomic bodies were stable and had existed for a very long time. Under these circumstances ...
87. The Venus versus Mars Controversy, or Which Planet Moved the Earth? [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... for Earth's assailing planet. Both Velikovsky and Patten base their proposals on the assumption that the attacking planet, called "Typhon" in some records, had an elliptical orbit that intersected Earth's orbit during Typhon's circuit. At times this marauding planet passed close enough to Earth to cause a significant disturbance. The Problem Assuming a planet in ancient times crossed Earth's orbit periodically, bringing with its approach interplanetary catastrophism, which planet could it have been? Was that celestial body Mars, a planet with 10 1/2 percent of the Earth's mass and an orbit which (today) averages 141.6 million miles from the Sun? Or was that Venus, with 811/2 percent ...
88. Notes (The Book of Revelation is History) [Books]
... a number-like symbol of importance to mankind) and not to the `number of a man' (i .e . one particular individual). Greek has no indefinite article. Note 60. Not only in those dim prehistoric times, of which myths seventeen and eighteen tell, was the wave symbol regarded as the natural opponent of the cross'. There are peculiar parallels also in the most recent times which make one almost believe that the `wave' symbol is revived instinctively by man at times when a `cross' symbol becomes threatening. It was so in the early centuries of our era when for a time the Ophites, who attached religious significance to the ` ...
89. 'Worlds in Collision' and the Birth of Monotheism [Journals] [SIS Review]
... about a "mutation" in the Israelites' view of man and the universe, enabling them to abandon the worship of nature and embrace monotheism, and of incalculable influence on the development of religious thought. Recent work on the origins of monotheism has tended to erode the older view that monotheism grew gradually out of polytheism. Frank M. Cross, for example, writes, "Israel's religion appears, even in our earliest sources, as a new construct. Its God, its characteristic covenant law, its system of land-tenure, and its political organisation are in radical contrast to the religion and social forms of its neighbours." (1 ) (This judgment applies particularly to ...

... atmosphere and rotates in the opposite direction to the other planets [3 , 4]. There is a vast asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter; also, at least one asteroid, Chiron, orbits the Sun between the paths of Uranus and Saturn, while other asteroids are much closer to the Sun, their elliptical orbits crossing those of the inner planets [5 ]. Some, the Amor asteroids, cross the path of Mars but not the Earth, whereas the Apollo asteroids, of which it is estimated that about a thousand have diameters in excess of 1 km [5 , 6], cross the orbit of the Earth. The orbits of comets ...
