71. Crete. Ch.12 The Ruins Of The East (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... Egypt. The period of the Hyksos in Egypt, between the Middle and the New Kingdoms, coincides with the last-the third subdivision of Middle Minoan. All the great periods in Minoan Crete terminated in natural catastrophes. The monumental work of Sir Arthur Evans, The Palace of Minos at Knossos, furnishes abundant evidence of the physical nature of the destructive agent that brought to a close the ages of Minoan culture, one after the other. He speaks of a "great catastrophe" that took place toward the close of Middle Minoan II.1 "A great destruction befell Knossos on the northern shore of the island and Phaestos on its southern shore.2 The isle lay prostrate, ...
72. Plato. Ch.2 To Know And Not To Know (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... years after Herodotus visited Egypt, Plato came there, hardly thirty years of age, soon after having parted from Socrates, who drank his cup of hemlock. When Plato was about ten years old he heard what Solon, generations earlier, had learned from the priests of Egypt about the cataclysms of the past, one of which caused the destruction and submersion of Atlantis. which the entirety of nature-sea and land, Sun and Moon, and all the celestial host-participated. Fifty years after Herodotus visited Egypt, Plato came there, hardly thirty years-of age, soon after having parted from Socrates, who drank his cup of hemlock. When Plato was about ten years old he heard what ...
73. Global Catastrophes: New Evidence from Astronomy, Biology and Archaeology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... entitled "The Bronze Ages in the Near East: a catastrophist interpretation", was given by historian Geoffrey Gammon, who dealt with the mainly archaeological evidence for widespread global catastrophes in the third and second millennia BC, without attempting to ascribe any specific cause to these events. The first major study of the evidence for widespread and possibly contemporaneous destructions during the Bronze Ages (between 3000 and 1200 BC in terms of the conventional chronology) had been undertaken by Professor Claude Schaeffer, the excavator of Ras-Shamra/Ugarit. Schaeffer's monumental Stratigraphie comparée..., published in 1948, established that Ugarit itself had been subject to repeated destructions by fire and earthquake. [A summary of ...
74. Theomachy in the Theater: on the Fringes of the Collective Amnesia [Journals] [Kronos]
... Greenberg Prologue No one who critically examines mythic texts with Velikovskian eyes can fail to be impressed by the tenacity with which clues to the true nature of a transmuted cataclysm survive the ingenious workings of the collective amnesia. (1 ) So far as we are aware, no Japanese studio has yet produced a film dealing explicitly with either the atomic destruction of Hiroshima* and Nagasaki or the equally devastating firebombing of Tokyo. This fact is, in itself, interesting enough, but we have something else in mind. [* A slight variant exception is to be found in the movie Frankenstein Conquers the World (1966), where Hiroshima is referred to but simply used as an excuse ...
75. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... haunt the human psyche, finds his own mind prompting him with the image of "the starry night sky". If the ideas put forward in Mankind in Amnesia are correct, such an association is far from coincidental, for the now peaceful starry sky has in the past been the stage for awesome cosmic events and the source of colossal destructions. Such phenomena, occurring throughout the development of the human species, must have had the most profound effects on the physical evolution of the brain, the conceptual and perceptual processes which operate within it and the consequent social structures and activities which proceed from these. Though, sadly, Velikovsky did not live to complete the book himself, ...
76. A Different View on the Chronology of Hazor [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... into 1A, dated to the thirteenth century by the Mycenaean pottery, and IB, dated to the fourteenth century, also because of the Mycenaean ware.4 Level 1A was destroyed by fire which Yadin attributes to Joshua, c. 1230 B.C .; on the other hand, if level 1A is eighth century, then its destruction might be attributed to Assyrians who destroyed Hazor in 732 B.C .5 Obviously, the question boils down to whether levels IA and IB are dated to the fourteenth and thirteenth centuries or to the ninth and eighth. The solution depends on comparing artifacts and structures found there with other datable finds elsewhere. Let us examine some of ...
77. Abraham to Hezekiah: An Archaeological Revision Part II [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... G. Ernest Wright says "All agree that the end of the Middle Bronze Age occurred . . . when the first kings of the 18th Egyptian Dynasty were recovering their Asiatic empire from the Hyksos dominion."(49) Speaking of the Middle Bronze Age in Palestine, Dever writes: The end of the period is marked by massive destruction levels at every site thus far excavated, undoubtedly to be correlated with the expulsion of the "Hyksos" beginning under the last king of the 17th dynasty, Kamose . . . and continuing under his successors of the early 18th dynasty. Recent work has shed much light on the political and cultural processes which brought the Middle Bronze Age ...
... the vituperative attack on Dr. Velikovsky, confined to the somewhat unscientific goal of declaring him "crazy." But whether Dr. Velikovsky is right or wrong, and probably particularly if he is wrong, his life and work will eventually be the subject of intensive psychobiographical scrutiny. As you will probably notice, the psychotic delusions of cataclysmic destruction of the world, which I am going to discuss briefly, could easily be turned against Dr. Velikovsky's theories and particularly against his personality. Should he be in error, this will unquestionably be the punishment history will inflict upon him. The task of the psychobiographer I prefer to leave for the future. It is always easier to ...
79. A Catastrophist Reading of Religious Systems [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Koestler, these two fears in conjunction, for the individual and for the group, constitute the anxiety-burden of modern man. As a catastrophist I both agree and disagree with Koestler. I agree that his two fears do exist in everyone, but I must add a third which is larger and more radical. It is the fear of world destruction. If Velikovsky is correct in his general contention that global catastrophes have occurred since mankind has appeared on Earth, and if he is further correct that we call have within us unconscious inherited collective memories of them, then a third terror must exist within us, which is the fear that not merely some individuals or even a species could ...
80. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Six [Books]
... . On WIC p.79, in the section "The Hurricane", V writes: "In the Japanese cosmogonical myth, the sun goddess hid herself for a long time in a heavenly cave in fear of the storm god. The source of light disappeared, the whole world became dark, ' and the storm god caused monstrous destruction. Gods made terrible noise so that the sun should reappear, and from their tumult the earth quaked. In Japan and in the vast extent of the ocean hurricanes and earthquakes are not rare occurrences; but they do not disturb the day- night succession, nor is there any resulting permanent change in the sky and its luminaries. ...
