301. Preface to the War of the Jews [Books]
... THE WARS OF THE JEWS OR THE HISTORY OF THE DESTRUCTION OF JERUSALEM.PREFACE 1. (1 ) WHEREAS the war which the Jews made with the Romans hath been the greatest of all those, not only that have been in our times, but, in a manner, of those that ever were heard of; both of those wherein cities have fought against cities, or nations against nations; while some men who were not concerned in the affairs themselves have gotten together vain and contradictory stories by hearsay, and have written them down after a sophistical manner; and while those that were there present have given false accounts of things, and this either out of a ...
302. Quantavolution and Catastrophes Series [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... Mankind today analyzed as normally evidencing all basic traits of schizophrenia, whereby culture becomes the virtual reality educating and enforcing normal schizoid behavior and penalizing so-called schizophrenics. Paranoia, obsession-compulsion, catatonia, cognitive disorder culturally constrained and termed rationality, and located in myriad constellations of sublimation. The Disastrous Love Affair of Moon and Mars: Celestial sex, earthly destruction, and dramatic sublimation in Homer's Odyssey. A complete but incredible case can be built up from an ancient chant that has Mars, Moon, Venus, and Earth in close and destructive encounters. God's Fire: Moses and the Management of Exodus. I have found no book that deals adequately with the psychology of Moses, and therefore ...
303. Leonardo da Vinci: Rocks, Fossils, and Time [Journals] [Kronos]
... Chain of Being. It was a very secure world.) Since marine fossils of many different sizes and species were found in many different layers above the sea level, Leonardo knew that natural history had not been eternally fixed in space and time. Searching for a scientific (empirico-rational) explanation, he rejected all religious interpretations of creation and destruction. To account for the marine objects at the tops of hills and high mountains far removed from the sea, his mind leaped ahead of contemporary thought to embrace conceptions of both geological catastrophism and uniformitarianism as well as anticipating the theory of biological evolution (ideas that are still hard for some thinkers to accept even today). In the ...
304. Velikovsky on the Formation of Coal [Journals] [Pensee]
... in global catastrophes many species were annihilated, other species decimated, and mutations took place. The catastrophes occurred in "historical, prehistorical, and prehuman times," but not at "periodic" intervals. Ed. "The evidence strongly supports a process of carbonisation in forest fires, which were extensive, but were checked by flooding before destruction of the forests was complete. This evidence accords well with the views on the formation of coal expressed by Velikovsky. . ." We are concerned only with the possible bearing of such phenomena upon the mode of formation of coal, including the transport and deposition of plant debris in bulk by floods, and the effect of subsequent phenomena ...
305. Velikovsky at Harvard [Journals] [Pensee]
... them? . . . "We are alone in the solar system. We are irrational because we do not know what happened to us in the recent past. From Freud we learned that traumatic experiences are easily forgotten. We also learned that we tend to repeat them. We have, in these two arsenals across the Atlantic, enough destructive power to make life impossible. There is some ancestral heritage in us which was born in traumatic, awful experiences. Freud knew this was so, but he did not find out what those experiences were." The cosmic actors, now in a state of "peaceful coexistence," lend deceptive credence to the belief that all things ...
306. The Siwalik Hills. Ch.6 Mountains And Rifts (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... the numerous tribes of large and highly specialized ungulates [hoofed animals] which found such suitable habitats in the Siwalik jungles of the Pliocene epoch, are to be seen no more in an immediately succeeding age."4 It used to be assumed that the advent of the Ice Age killed them, but subsequently it has been recognized that great destructions took place in the age of man, much closer to our day. The older geologists thought that the Siwalik deposits were alluvial in their nature, that they were debris carried down by the torrential Himalayan streams. But it was realized that this explanation "does not appear to be tenable on the ground of the remarkable homogeneity that the ...
307. The Founding of Rome [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... 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. It is now possible, consequently, to connect Cadmus of Thebes with Akhnaton, the burning 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, that could readily be slipped down by four hundred years into the 8th century. For Schaeffer's inventory of destroyed sites of the 13th century "Peoples of the Sea" period reveals that these settlements were succeeded ...
308. King Solomon's Mines? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... his yoke, he had them transport the reassembled stones of Makari-kari on sleds drawn by oxen over the mountains in months or even years of toil, to build what is known today as "Zimbabwe", the Bantu name being Zim-Mbye, meaning "Construction of Stone" - its original name Luvijiti having been cursed and forever forbidden after its destruction during the later folk-emigration southward. (This provides an answer to the riddle met by the archaeologists, who could not explain the "Phoenician" characteristics of the building.) Its ruins date from about 800 years before the present, after the appearance of the "Star of War" mentioned by Elizabeth Gaudry (SISR II:4 ...
309. The Year -687, Part 2 Mars Ch.2 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... repaired Milo in the city of David, and made darts and shields in abundance. And he set captains of war over the people. And when Sennacherib came and entered Judah, Hezekiah ordered to stop all the fountains without Jerusalem, and spoke to the people in the city to be strong and courageous." And then came the miraculous destruction of the Assyrian host. The annals of Sennacherib tell only the first part of the story: the capture of the cities of the land, the submission of Hezekiah, and the tribute he paid. The siege of Lachish is not mentioned on the prism, but an Assyrian relief of this siege is preserved. Nothing is told in ...
310. Jupiter -- God of Abraham (Part I) [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. VII No. 1 (Fall 1981) Home | Issue Contents Jupiter- God of Abraham (Part I)Dwardu Cardona Copyright (C ) 1981 by Dwardu Cardona 1. Introduction Immanuel Velikovsky has attributed the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah to a close encounter of Earth with the planet Jupiter.(1 ) Basing his opinion on clues supplied by Velikovsky, but independently of him, James Strickling has suggested a similar cause.(2 ) The Book of Genesis, as well as extra-Biblical sources, blames the destruction on Abraham's god. From a religious point of view, Velikovsky's implication is that the planet Jupiter was the god of Abraham. Can ...
