501. Shamir [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , a hound of heaven that reappears in Norse mythology as the Fenris Wolf. On that kind of basis a connection between Lucifer and giants in the sky is apt. A lightning bolt or meteor was quite capable of splitting rocky formations and shaving lumps out of mountains; a splinter of meteoric stone or iron, as a symbol of the destructive nature of god, would have been a perfectly acceptable object to carry in the Ark, symbolising an Argos or boat traversing the celestial sea (in the sky). In legend, shamir was a wondrous possession of Solomon, legendary king of Israel. Velikovsky visualised shamir as something quite distinct. He quoted rabbis Rashi and Maimonides who ...

... shield". It struck me that the "Magen David" is not only the shield of David, but also the star of David. Is this further support for the idea of an astral god as the God of Abraham and David? I was puzzled by the concluding paragraph of the piece. Cardona seems to be implying that the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah took place "not long after" the covenant between the pieces of Genesis 15. There are two points I have to make on this. One is that in Genesis 15:2-3 Abram tells God that he has no seed, and that his servant Eliezer of Damascus is his heir. In Genesis 17 we ...

503. Atlantis, Part 1 Venus Ch.7 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... of the error, the most probable date of the sinking of Atlantis would be in the middle of the second millennium, 900 years before Solon, when the earth twice suffered great catastrophes as a result of "the shifting of the heavenly bodies." These words of Plato received the least attention, though they deserved the greatest. The destruction of Atlantis is described by Plato as he heard it from his source: "At a later time there occurred portentous earthquakes and floods, and one grievous day and night befell them, when the whole body of your [Greek] warriors was swallowed up by the earth, and the island of Atlantis in like manner was swallowed up ...

... Middle East ivories of Antiquity were made from tusks found in the Siberian steppes. Inside the Arctic Circle, the New Siberian Islands, Novaya Zemlya, etc., reveal huge masses of bones of mammoths, rhinoceroses, buffaloes, horses, and other animals, mixed with uprooted trees and fossilized charcoal. Northern Asia tells the same story of destruction and sudden death as Alaska. No subject has given rise to so much controversy as the discovery of the frozen carcasses, and the huge numbers of Pleistocene skeletons. Charles Darwin was obliged to admit that the extinction of the mammals of Siberia was for him `an insoluble problem'.18 The American geologist I. D. Dana ...

... own patterns and meanings directly from the texts". Many obviously catastrophic myths are included: one of these is a version of the well-known Hindu myth of the "Churning of the Ocean", which reads like a paraphrase of Worlds in Collision , so detailed are its catastrophic motifs. This battle of the gods and demons with its attendant destruction upon the earth may also shed further light on the problem discussed by Michael Reade in the last issue of the SISR (Manna as a Confection, pp. 9 ff.). The gods use the serpent Vasuki to churn the ocean and various elixirs are produced including, specifically, "clarified butter" and ambrosia (the two ...

... have put before you very frankly the considerations which have made us agnostic as to the actual mode and processes of evolution."5 L. T. More, in a series of guest lectures delivered at Princeton University, asked: "If natural selection is a force which can destroy but cannot create species and if the reasons for this destruction are unknown, of what value is the theory to mankind? . . . The collapse of the theory of natural selection leaves the philosophy of mechanistic materialism in a sorry plight."6 On De Vries's theory of evolution by mutations More said: "The idea is destructive to scientific theory, as it really does away with the ...

507. Wegener Legacy [Journals] [SIS Review]
... The lithosphere is broken into a number of large and small "plates" which interact with each other along three distinct types of boundary. At the constructive boundaries, which form the vast oceanic ridge system, molten material rises from the earth's interior, cools, solidifies and moves away laterally in both directions to form new oceanic lithosphere. At destructive boundaries, or subduction zones, the spreading ocean floor plunges back into the earth's interior where it gradually melts and becomes reassimilated. Then there are fault boundaries, known as transform faults, along which the plates merely slide past each other with neither the production nor destruction of material. There is thus much more to explain than merely the ...

... to be preserved as the best of holy waters. . . . Any spot which a cow has condescended to honour with the sacred deposit of her excrement is forever afterwards consecrated ground." (75) Sprinkled on a sinner, it "converts him into a saint." The bull is sacred to Shiva, "the god of destruction in the Hindu Trinity." "The consecration of the bulls and letting them loose as privileged beings to roam at their will and draw respect from all people is to be noted with particular interest. . . . The freedom and privileges of the Brahman bull are inviolate." Even when it is destructive, the bull must not ...

... the world, the stars will again fall to the earth." In this narrative of the Pawnee Indians, elements are brought together which, as we know now, actually belong together. The planet Venus established the present order on the earth and placed the north and south polar stars in their places. The Pawnee believe that the future destruction of the world depends on the planet Venus. When the end of the world will come, the North and South poles will change places. In the past the South Star left its place a few times and came up higher, bringing about a shifting of the poles, but on these occasions the polar stars did not reverse their ...

510. The Celestial Tower [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... ii, 160-170). As the most northerly land known to the early Phoenicians and Greeks, Britain (source of tin, the indispensible ingredient of bronze) would naturally have been specially connected by them to the world pole or tree. Such ideas must however, for the moment, remain somewhat speculative. What is clear is that the destruction of the tower or celestial phallus was clearly associated with great upheavals of nature on the earth; and the builders of the tower are invariably the rebellious titans whose battle with the divine powers unleashes devastation upon the earth. The battle between the gods and the titans becomes the archetypal war in heaven between the forces of good and evil. ...
