141. Nine Spheres of Venusian Effects [Books] [de Grazia books]
... | Issue Contents CHAPTER SEVEN Nine Spheres of Venusian Effects * (* This paper is an edited version of a talk to a meeting of the Society for Interdisciplinary Studies, London 26 April 1980. The help of Mr. Peter James on important points of material evidence is gratefully acknowledged.) Whether from timidity or misapprehension, hypotheses of general destruction about 3500 years ago are felt to be based upon scraps of evidence from scattered and often unreliable sources, whereas their conventional counter-theses are solidly founded. To the contrary, as I shall maintain here, the evidence from this period points to an extraordinary destruction in culture and nature. I shall offer nine propositions to this effect, adjoin ...
142. The Coming Cosmic Debate in the Sciences and Humanities: Revolutionary Vs. Evolutionary Primevology [Articles]
... is cosmic in that all fields of knowledge are involved. Second, I must have reference to something of great importance, else why call it cosmic"? Third, the subject will hare something to do with cosmology-the nature of the earth, the skies, and humanity. Also ,the processes of cosmic change, creation and destruction, and the rate at which great changes occur. There remains then the words "coming debate." Debate requires two sides that are determined to confront one another on rational grounds. I must state that the cosmic debate is not in full swing. It is coming, approaching. The established and conventional theorists of the sciences and ...
143. Problems With The Morning Star [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Saturn appears in his own right, but in Mesoamerica all his characteristics merge imperceptibly with those of Venus, under the one guise of the Feathered Serpent. The benevolence and fertility aspects of the Mother Goddess would seem to have been transferred to the Evening Star aspect of Venus in Eurasia yet to the Morning Star in Mesoamerica. The malevolent, destructive aspects of Venus must have been attributed later when, in cometary form, she menaced the Earth at intervals. This is the aspect that brought about human sacrifice in an attempt to placate the angry god. Xolotl, dark and ugly though he was, seems too mild to fulfil this role completely. Human sacrifice was already practised during ...
144. High Energy from Space [Books] [de Grazia books]
... water, soil, and rock occur. The shells crinkle, raising hills and mountains. One is reminded of the Revolt of the Giants in Greek myth wherein the giants piled mountain upon mountain, "Ossa upon Pelion," in their attempt to assault the heavenly fastnesses of the gods. Great gravitational and electrical forces are levied and act destructively throughout upon air, earth and water. ELECTRICAL FORCES Entities from the size of an atom to that of a galaxy can hold electrical charges, and carry free positive or negative charges that can move through a field under repulsion or attraction with great energy, depending upon the distances involved. Eric Crew has recently commented that "one of ...
145. The Sacred Theory of the Earth by Dr. Thomas Burnet [Books]
... the light of nature; and yet were of great importance to be known, both for their own Excellency, and also to rectify the knowledge of men in other things consequential to them: such points may be, Our great Epocha, or the age of the Earth, the originations of mankind, the first and Paradisiacal state, The destruction of the old World by an Universal Deluge, The longevity of its inhabitants, The manner of their preservation, and of their peopling the second Earth; and lastly, The fate and changes it is to undergo. These I always look'd upon as the seeds of great knowledge, or heads of Theories mix'd on purpose to give us ...
146. Did the Sumerians and the Akkadians Ever Exist? [Journals] [Aeon]
... killed in hunting. Small female figurines serve as amulettes against the risks of pregnancy and childbirth. The reasons for the emergence of a society dominated by a priesthood, i.e ., the causes of the first stage of high culture after the Stone Age are to this day considered unknown. II Ca. 3000 BCE: Flood and destruction layers, drastic change of climate.Problems: The origin of the catastrophe is considered to be unknown. Riddles: Cuneiform inscriptions speak of a flood before kingship was brought down from heaven, and ascribe its cause to Inanna (Venus). III After ca. 3000 BCE: Beginnings of the Early Dynastic Period or the first " ...
147. The Garden, the Fall and the Restoration [Articles]
... with Velikovsky,only his explanation of it. Psychiatrist Carl Menninger describes it laconically: "This is what one would see who surveyed our planet cursorily, and if he looked closer into the lives of individuals and communities, he would see still more to puzzle him, he would see bickering, hatreds and fighting, useless waste and petty destructiveness, he would see people sacrificing themselves to injure others, and expending time, trouble and energy in shortening that pitifully small recess from oblivion which we call life, and most amazing of all, he would see some who, as if lacking ought else to destroy, turn their weapons upon themselves." This is a theme that ...
148. Rectification of the Assyrian and Babylonian King Lists – A Velikovskian Approach [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... they were simultaneous contenders (together with one or more Kassites) for occupation of sites in southern Iraq (immediately prior to the devastations), thus casting doubt on the reliability of the conventional king lists. Meanwhile, however, equation of Baal and the Aten [5 ] has opened up an alternative way of dating these events – the destruction of Agade, Sumer and Ur, and the collapse of el-Amarna assuming them all to be simultaneous or near- simultaneous. The key is that Ahab and Akhenaten have to be at least near contemporaries. According to the table presented in my Update of year counts in the Time of the Divided Monarchy' [6 ], Ahab ruled ...

... to hear. It is a semi-theocratic world. Ruled by a conglomeration of Zealots (. .. ) they call themselves socialists or rightwingers, its all the same. Our dreams went awry. Yours very respectfully, Melitta Rix Rix, whose scrambled writings are being kept by Christoph Marx, was hard in pursuit of evidence that the cometary destruction of civilizations around 3500 years ago had warped the human mind in the Near East, inciting human destructiveness, religious excesses, and sexual deviations. ** * Christoph Marx was a computer expert from Basle, and an amateur of Velikovsky's work and all that it connected with. He circulated an invitation to whomever he knew to meet in ...
150. The Sea Peoples and the Philistines [Articles]
... of ancient Near Eastern history that the Philistines arrived in Palestine, together with the other so-called "Sea Peoples" at the end of the Late Bronze Age. An acceptance of this idea has coloured our interpretation why these cities were destroyed, what made this cultural break. Why did people originally think that the Philistines and Sea Peoples caused the destructions of the end of the Late Bronze Age? The whole edifice rests on the Egyptian records of Ramesses III, conventionally dated to around 1200 BC. No written records from the Aegean or the Levant (such as they are), the Hittite Empire or the Kingdom of Mesopotamia show anything that unequivocally describes the arrival of the Philistines and ...
