291. Mid-fourteenth Century: Periodicity Of Frenzy. Ch.3 In Fear And Trembling (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... able to flee, the dying and the dead being left their sole inhabitants. It was the pestilence called the Black Death', the most terrible visitation that Europe has ever known. "This deadly disease came from Asia. It is said to have originated in China, spreading over the great continent westwardly, and descending in all its destructive virulence upon Europe, which continent it swept as with the venom of destruction. The disease appears to have been a very malignant type of what is known as the plague, a form of pestilence which has several times returned, though never with such virulence as on that occasion...Villages and towns were in many places utterly ...
292. "Let There be Light" [Journals] [Kronos]
... ) That Saturn was El, or Elohim, we have already shown. That Elohim created the world is therefore synonymous with saying that it was Saturn which did so. 2. The Cosmic Egg . Man, who could not have existed during the first "Creation" of the Earth, was a living witness to some of its subsequent destructions and re-Creations. The cosmic disaster we are about to reconstruct, however, became for him the genesis of Genesis. This occurrence, in some ways drastic but visually glorious, posterity branded as The Creation. Traditions of creation are multifarious; those of The Creation, multiform. One consistent motif connected with the latter is the Universal, ...
... to this people; thou who disturbest the happy estate of the Egyptians, and gavest us the opportunity of flying away from our under them, and madest the dominion of Pharaoh inferior to my dominion; thou who didst make the sea dry land for us, when we knew not whither to go, and didst overwhelm the Egyptians with those destructive waves which had been divided for us; thou who didst bestow upon us the security of weapons when we were naked; thou who didst make the fountains that were corrupted to flow, so as to be fit for drinking, and didst furnish us with water that came out of the rocks, when we were in want of it ...
294. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... .2300 BC) I cited Inanna's astral and yet terrestrial aspects and argued the case, independently of anything Velikovsky had written, for Enheduanna having witnessed a catastrophe caused by the deity Inanna. Much has been written about the paradoxical nature of the goddess in mythology. She can be the deity of both love and war, of beauty and destruction. To which I can add (of the goddess Inanna) she can be both astral and yet terrestrial, cometary and yet (in the same era) the Evening and Morning Star. Is there any way of understanding these paradoxical features? Is it possible, for instance, for a comet like Encke to have tangled with the ...
295. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... with impressive and unprecedented thoroughness  - not always with absolute accuracy, of course. It is also the vehicle for an unacceptable theory of planetary catastrophes, which involves tossing one planet from end to end of the Solar System, while another (our own) mysteriously manages to hold to its orbit sufficiently closely to avoid the total destruction of its fragile living cargo. SIS takes Worlds in Collision as a starting point: it is founded in the premise that there is a case to answer - a real scientific/historical mystery to be unravelled. Clube & Napier have certainly relied on some of Velikovsky's material, but in The Cosmic Serpent they failed to give due credit ...
296. The Founding of Rome [Books] [de Grazia books]
... the Greek Dark Ages, I. Isaacson (Schorr), the Review of the Society for Interdisciplinary Studies of England, the journal Kronos, Velikovsky himself, and even the present writer have worked to close the Greek time gap. Hence, it is possible now to connect Cadmus of Thebes with Akhnaton, the butning of Pylos with the destruction of Troy, to tie together in fact a number of natural catastrophes and movements of people that Claude Schaeffer had coordinated in time, and that could readily be slipped down by four hundred years into the VIII century. For Schaeffer's inventory of destroyed sites of the XIII century "Peoples of the Sea" period reveals that these settlement were ...
297. The Nature and Scale of an Exodus Catastrophe Reassessed [Journals] [SIS Review]
... event of 2300 BC, remarking that, while earlier dates are possible, a date later than 2150 BC is unlikely (Reade 1977: 15). Velikovsky had related the Phaeton episode to the Exodus catastrophe [1 ]. Thirdly, the archaeology of the end of the Middle Bronze Age in the Near East does not attest to widespread destructions on the scale evidenced at the end of the Early Bronze Age, and what destructions did occur appear in the majority of cases to have been the work of human agents rather than the forces of nature (Gammon 1980: 104-108; Bimson 1981: 106-214). Finally, Leroy Ellenberger, describing himself at the time as an active ...
298. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... ; only this latter could be considered as a torchlight on our past. Enormous global catastrophes caused by extraterrestrial sources would have engendered a collective terror. How would people have responded in attempts to handle their fear? The fear of personal death and even the extinction of one's tribe or society are likely to be innate, but fear of the destruction of the entire world would come as the result of cosmic catastrophe. The combination of all these Wolfe calls the Triple Terror. The manmade rituals and customs of the world's religions seem designed to pacify believers and ease this triple terror. Velikovsky suggested that cosmic instability caused a collective amnesia in mankind, with a concomitant denial of such catastrophic ...

... muster for the last decisive battle. Garmr, the hell-hound, is barking. Fenrir, the grim Wolf, slips its bonds and rages through the world with open jaws that stretch from heaven to Earth. The grisly Midgarth Serpent rises out of the foaming sea, spreads over the Earth, and poisons air and water. The Sons of Destruction' come from the north, troops of frost-giants, and the hosts of Hel; Loki himself steers Naglfar, '1 their horrible vessel. From the south Surtr advances, the lord of the fire-realm, at the head of the bright Muspel Sons, flourishing his flaming sword. In the meantime Odin has consulted the head of Mimir ...
300. The Hyksos (Ages in Chaos) [Velikovsky]
... "king", and sos in the common dialect means "shepherd" or "shepherds"; the combined words form "Hyksos".7 . As already noted on a previous page, in the remnants of Egyptian literature the Hyksos are called "Amu". The Hyksos were a people imbued to the core with a spirit of destruction. As far as is known, no monuments of any historical or artistic value were erected under their rule, no literary works survived their dominion in Egypt, with the exception of lamentations, such as those contained in the Ipuwer papyrus. The memory of the wickedness of these nomads is preserved by Manetho-Josephus.8 The Scriptures furnish no ...
