411. The Succession of Gods [Books] [de Grazia books]
... of heaven itself low? And was not the Earth the goddess, sufficient itself to the first age of religious awareness? The Clouds of Heaven were many and low, until descended in deluges. The Vault of Heaven was lifted and humans saw the heavenly bodies removing themselves to remoteness and, too, the gods and hosts of heaven behaving destructively and benevolently with their own wills and human features. We can agree with Mircea Eliade (The Quest: History and Meaning in Religion) Where, discussing Wilhelm Schmidt (Ursprung der Gottesidee) he says, "It is true that the belief in High Gods Seems to characterize the oldest cultures, but we also find there other religious ...

413. Catastrophes and the History of Life on Earth [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Eastern Europe around 365 Myr ago; in Siberia around 250 Myr ago; in the Central Atlantic region around 210 Myr ago; in the Pacific and Indian Oceans around 100 Myr ago; in India around 65 Myr ago; and in Ethiopia around 30 Myr ago. Such vulcanism, even if of a non-explosive nature, must have caused considerable destruction of living organisms. The contamination of the atmosphere with volcanic dust and gas would have blocked out sunlight and reduced average temperatures for a considerable period of time. It would also have limited photosynthesis, disrupting food chains on land and in the oceans [12]. The battles in Greek mythology between the Olympian gods and the Titans and ...

Joshua's war with the Canaanites, Israel's deliverance from the Philistines through Samson, the glory of Israel in David's reign, the building of the Temple under Solomon, and its destruction, the line of kings from the house of David, and the line of prophets from the house of Rahab, the destruction of Gog and Magog on the plain of Jericho, all this and much more, was it given Moses to see. And as God showed him the events in the world, so too did he show ...

... some of the fine detail of his chronology in relation to the end of the various stages of the Bronze Age, the Middle Bronze, the Late Bronze Age and so on. The fall of Jericho came in or shortly after the time of Sheshi and he pointed out that boundaries between the various periods were not abrupt. He regarded the destruction of Jericho as occurring during the Middle Bronze IIB period, whereas John Bimson put it during Middle Bronze IIC. All of these had consequences for the early history of Israel, there were knock-on effects; Jeroboam, for example, would have been the ruler in the Iron Age IIA settlements at Megiddo. He also threw in a reference ...

The process of holding flood waters to irrigate the southern Mesopotamian plain at least three to four times a year will undoubtedly enable the growth of rich crops at first but this process also leads to the destruction of the soil. Daniel J. Hillel discusses this problem: In many of the older countries, where human exploitation of the land began early in history, we find shocking examples of once-thriving regions reduced to desolation by man-induced soil degradation. Some of these civilizations succeeded all too well at first, only to set the stage for their ...

... and swept away houses and trees and even rocks and mounds of earth. From this name is derived ,, hurricane," the word we use for a strong wind. Hurakan destroyed the major part of the human race. In the darkness swept by wind, resinous stuff fell from the sky and participated with fire and water in the destruction of the world.(3 ) For five days, save for the burning naphtha and burning volcanoes, the world was dark, since the sun did not appear. The theme of a cosmic hurricane is reiterated time and again in the Hindu Vedas and in the Persian Avesta,(4 ) and diluvium venti, the deluge of ...

... Carl G. Jung and his own analysis of mental life grounded in the concept of celestial catastrophism. Velikovsky evidently believes that what Jung refers to as "the collective unconscious"- which is part of what Freud calls "the collective mind"- is the repository of repressed memories relating to terrifying cataclysms in mankind's ancient past. The near-total destructiveness of catastrophes as described in Worlds in Collision so shocked the human psyche that any "racial memory" of the catastrophes was transmuted and the true meaning of the various narrations was forgotten; that is, mankind suffers from collective amnesia.(1 ) "This hypothesis intended as an extension of the psychoanalytic concept of traumatic amnesia to the ...
