51. Tiahuanaco and the Delug [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History VI:2 (July 1984) Home¦ Issue Contents THEORY WORKSHOP Tiahuanaco and the Deluge Helmut Settl Cradled in the basin of the Peruvian-Bolivian altiplano, the Titicaca region is currently densely populated by the Aymara Indians, who eke out an agricultural existence, subsisting primarily on maize, frozen potatoes, and chicha, a fermented alcoholic beverage made of cornmeal. But there is evidence that such was not always the case. Just 12 miles southward of the southernmost tip of Lake Titicaca lie the remains of Tiahuanaco, the site of a technologically advanced culture considered by many archaeologists (romantic-- not orthodox) to be the oldest ruins in the world. Although some misguided scholars have attributed the buildings of Tiahuanaco to the Incas, it has now been established that the city was already in ruins when the first Incas came upon the scene. In 1540 the Spanish chronicler, Pedro Cieza de Leon, visited the area and his description of the statues and monoliths compares very closely to what we see today. The site is at an ...

... conditions would also have existed. This should have been recorded by various cultures. Moe M. Mandelkehr, Cinnaminson, N.J., USA Has Velikovsky Correctly Placed the Ice Age? Dear Sir, Many times in Worlds in Collision and Earth in Upheaval Dr Velikovsky equates the beginning of the Pleistocene or ice age with the time of the Exodus, circa 1450 BC. On pages 114-126 of Earth in Upheaval he gives a graphic description of what he thinks happened when the ice age began. The description however sounds more like the Noachian Deluge than the Exodus. We can therefore expect Velikovsky to run into problems with his placement of the Noah/Saturn Flood and the events of that time. Presumably Velikovsky must place the Deluge in the era prior to the Pleistocene (Glacial Age). A check of the chart on p.184 of Earth in Upheaval will show this period is known as the Tertiary or "Age of Mammals". Under the conventional time scale it is allocated 70 million years and is followed by one million years of the ice age and then followed ...
53. THE LATELY TORTURED EARTH: PART III: HYDROLOGY: 12.Water [Quantavolution Website]
... years of existence. That is only one-fiftieth of the conventional age of the world oceans. Have there been fifty world-girdling oceans? If the ocean basins were filled late in time, deluges from the skies have to be assumed. There is no other source, nor any more apt source, than the waterlogged comets and great planets. One is compelled to seek water there, and bring it here. Hence the need to invoke explosions of water from Saturn et al., and passing cometary encounters. Once the theory of a deluge( s) is given, the search for the source of the water is by no means ended. The Earth's water may have been injected, boiled off the imagined primodial melt, stayed up in the skies, and then fallen when a crust had formed and cooled below 212. This may have happened, but then again it may not have. It would seem that if vapors rose high, they would stay there and rotate with the Earth, descending only when terrestrial electrical conditions permitted or were "seeded" by ...

... foreseen some time in advance. Astronomers and amateurs all round the world are keeping watch. A comet on a Collision Course with the Earth would perhaps not be detected until a few weeks before the crash, if it were small, but then the disaster would also be limited..... But there is a snag in all this Were all major catastrophes really caused by cosmic collisions? According to Velikovsky, the Great Catastrophe that was the ultimate cause of all other cosmic catastrophes in the history of mankind was the Universal Deluge, which came when Saturn exploded as a nova. Should we draw the conclusion that one great catastrophe, the greatest of them all, was not caused by a cosmic collision? No, says Velikovsky, Saturn's nova explosion was the consequence of a close encounter between Jupiter and Saturn (4) And this thesis is in good agreement with a theory that some astronomers used to favour, saying that nova explosions are caused by collisions between large celestial bodies. The general view of the nova phenomenon has changed in recent years. ...
55. Ancient Astronauts, Cosmic Collisions and Other Popular Theories about Man's Past (Review) [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... and Other Popular Theories about Man's Past (Review) by WILLIAM H. STIEBING, Jr. Reviewed by Herbert A. Storck This book critically reviews several popular theories and ideas that have gained wide currency among the general public. Ancient Astronauts, Cosmic Collisions and Other Popular Theories about Man's Past (Buffalo: Prometheus Books, 1984, 217 pp.) is written by W. H. Stiebing, Jr., associate professor of history at the University of New Orleans. The popular concepts dealt with are the universality of the deluge, Atlantis, cosmic catastrophism, ancient astronauts, the mysteries of the pyramids, and early voyages to the Americas. A final chapter summarizes some elements common to all of the above theories. In this chapter Stiebing cites the poor nature of the evidence: simple answers to complex problems and a pervasive anti-establishment rhetoric are examples. The author goes on to conclude with some reflections on why these views have gained such popularity; he attributes their growing attraction primarily to the communications gap between academic and general communities. Stiebing's handling of the ...

58. Evidence that the Earth has Suffered Catastrophes of Cosmic Origin in Historical Times: the Conclusions of the 2nd SIS Conference [SIS C&C Review $]
... . Steven Robinson's papers). How do ice ages happen? Or, as Harold Tresman wanted to learn as a schoolboy: how do fossils form; how was coal formed; how were woolly mammoths snap-frozen with buttercups and other temperate flora still between their teeth? There is much to know. I will suggest here one important area of research. Benny Peiser draws our attention to the widespread nature of 'flood' myths. But do we know that these all refer to the same event? Must there necessarily have been a universal deluge? In his book The Reversing Earth, Peter Warlow has suggested Earth inversions as a possible cause of flooding and noted that some areas of the globe would have been unaffected by floods so caused. Is it possible to find archaeological or geological evidence compatible with all or most deluge accounts? It is probably too soon to talk about lasting legacies, but nevertheless I hope that the 2nd Conference will give historical catastrophism what the 1st Conference gave chronological research- enduring stimulation. The scale, the eras, the agents behind the historical ...

... the story be taken seriously, despite its prehistoric origins. Critias, his protagonist, is given to claim repeatedly that he heard and learned the story from his grandfather as a true and exact account. Significantly, to a modern mnemologist, Critias declared that although he had forgotten much of what he had heard of the previous day's discussions, he had forgotten none of what he had learned as a child about Atlantis. The Atlantis story is generally disbelieved, yet if an educated unbeliever were to compare it with the story of the Deluge of Noah in the Bible, it would appear to be just as (im) plausible. It is no less specific. The "author" of one is Plato, of the other, Moses; who is more reliable? True, Atlantis is no longer to be found, above or below the sea, and therefore presumed not to have sunk; but the flood that climbed to great heights all over the Near East has vanished, too. Objectively, one would have to be as skeptical (and no more ...
