171. The Great Comet Venus [Journals] [Aeon]
... Was Venus a comet in early historic times? If so, a hundred secondary issues debated by Velikovsky and his critics are virtually irrelevant to Velikovsky's place in the history of science. Are there hydrocarbons in the atmosphere of Venus as Velikovsky had suggested? Did vermin actually descend on the earth as a result of a Venus encounter? Did a destructive encounter with the Earth really occur around 1500 BC, followed 52 years later by another? Is it physically possible that a planet-sized body could have been ejected from the gas giant Jupiter? It is certainly conceivable that questions such as these, which have tended to draw much of the attention over the 40-year Velikovsky debate, could all be ...
172. From Creation to the Death of Isaac [Books]
... and Geon runs through Egypt, and denotes what arises from the east, which the Greeks call Nile. 4. God therefore commanded that Adam and his wife should eat of all the rest of the plants, but to abstain from the tree of knowledge; and foretold to them, that if they touched it, it would prove their destruction. But while all the living creatures had one language, (5 ) at that time the serpent, which then lived together with Adam and his wife, shewed an envious disposition, at his supposal of their living happily, and in obedience to the commands of God; and imagining, that when they disobeyed them, they would ...
... people mourned greatly for him, lamenting and grieving on his account many days; and Jeremiah the prophet composed an elegy to lament him, (11) which is extant till tills time also. Moreover, this prophet denounced beforehand the sad calamities that were coming upon the city. He also left behind him in writing a description of that destruction of our nation which has lately happened in our days, and the taking of Babylon; nor was he the only prophet who delivered such predictions beforehand to the multitude, but so did Ezekiel also, who was the first person that wrote, and left behind him in writing two books concerning these events. Now these two prophets were ...
174. A Further Note on the Archaeology of Jericho [Journals] [SIS Review]
... completed a doctorate thesis for the Department of Biblical Studies at the University of Sheffield, dealing with Hebrew chronology with special reference to the dating of the Exodus. He has contributed earlier articles to the Review in this area. In an article dealing with the Israelite Conquest and the revised chronology (1 ), I discussed at some length the destruction of Jericho described in the Old Testament. I argued in detail, from archaeological finds, for an identification of the collapse and destruction of Jericho related in Joshua 6:20-24 with the fall of the Middle Bronze Age city. In the present short note I will indicate briefly how archaeological finds relating to Jericho's later periods parallel the biblical ...
175. "The Seasons Alter": Catastrophism in A Midsummer Night's Dream (Continued) [Journals] [Kronos]
... figure, the son of Mars, who returned to the stars at his death. Romulus thus has a double personality. His public Roman personna, whitewashed to provide comfort, is that of the paternal founder. His folkloric personna, chronicled by Livy, Plutarch, and Ovid, is that of natural violence, nature uncontrolled and on a destructive rampage. If Theseus is paired with Romulus, then he too must carry about him the public personna of order and the repressed folkloric personna of elementary planetary destruction.(35) There are other celestial overtones. For example, the whole play occurs during the crucial part of a lunar fertility cycle. It begins when the Moon is ...

177. Spectres [Books] [de Grazia books]
... even life forms, that ice and hail should fall in deluges and wind should sweep away forests: these again were delusions. Seeing the landscape dissolve in an earthquake, while even the air is rendered into visible shock waves, and seeing the Earth explode and pour out boiling magma from cracks and cones: again illusions. Telling of the destruction of almost all that was living: people must have been psychotic to make up and pass along stories of such events. The quantavolutionary position is that they were probably psychotic, but partially because of the nature of such events. Thus, to some extent, we become uniformitarian in respect to human psychology as we become quantavolutionary in regard ...
178. Thoth Vol VI, No 4: June 30, 2002 [Journals] [Thoth]
... as bright as the sun, to the great queen of heaven." sacred marriage-hymn of Iddon-Dagan, circa 1960 BCE As our earliest historical testimony regarding Venus, the Sumerian literature surrounding Inanna is indispensable for reconstructing the ancient conceptions surrounding our Sister planet. Especially intriguing are those hymns which describe the planet-goddess as dominating the skies and raining fire and destruction. The following passage is typical in this regard "You make the heavens tremble and the earth quake. Great Priestess, who can soothe your troubled heart? You flash like lightning over the highlands; you throw your firebrands across the earth. Your deafening command .. . splits apart great mountains." Such imagery is exceedingly difficult ...
179. Catastrophe, Collective Trauma, and the Origin of Civilization [Articles]
... compelled to draw analogies with individual manifestations of psychic distress. While a certain amount of caution is always required in extrapolating from the individual to the collective (and vice versa), in this case the method does yield some promising leads. There is, it seems, one disorder whose symptoms in individuals closely resemble the irrational, self- destructive attitudes and behaviors of civilized people acting together-a disorder that is commonly seen in war veterans and in survivors of rape, assault, abuse, or environmental disasters; psychologists call it post- traumatic stress disorder. The symptoms of post-traumatic stress include: -vigilance and scanning, -elevated startle response, -blunted affect or psychic numbing (the loss of ...
180. Jupiter God of Abraham (Part IV) [Journals] [Kronos]
... . 1 (Fall 1983) Home | Issue Contents Jupiter God of Abraham (Part IV)Dwardu Cardona Copyright (c ) 1983 by Dwardu Cardona 20. The Thunderbolt In a separate paper(264) I have indicated that there is nothing in ancient records, myths, or legends, that implicates Mars or Venus as the agent of destruction in the Sodomitic catastrophe. Neither is there anything that substantiates Alfred de Grazia's contention that the agent was Mercury.(265) We are therefore left with Immanuel Velikovsky's belief that it was Jupiter.(266) The records, however, are just as silent about Jupiter as they are about Mars, Venus, and Mercury.
