71. Velikovsky And Planetary Catastrophe [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... Velikovsky's interest in the subject began with a reading of biblical accounts of the Exodus period, the plagues of Egypt, and the spectacles of the wandering in the desert, what led to his startling conclusions was a thorough cross-referencing with global myths of disaster - stories in which the agent of catastrophe takes the form of a great comet or flaming dragon, a body consistently identified with the planet Venus. Velikovsky also argued that the planet Mars, in the eighth and seventh centuries before the present era, moved on an erratic course, disrupting the Earth. Celestial upheavals caused by the unstable movements of Mars, according to Velikovsky, are the true reason why Mars appears in ancient records ...
... , we read in Proverbs iii. 20, the depths [tehomoth, Tiamat] are broken up. ' Further, in Job xxvi. 12: He divideth the sea with his power. ' And in Psalm lxxiv. 13, even more explicitly: Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength: thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters. ' Isaiah li.9 is still clearer on the subject: Awake, awake, put on strength, 10, arm of the Lord; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon? ' Psalm lxxxix. ...
73. Enheduanna and the Goddess Inanna [Journals] [SIS Review]
... perhaps be better understood as queen-consort': thus hierodule of An' would be consistent with Inanna's well-known role as the queen of heaven'. There is nothing particularly unusual here, but from line 9 on there is a change of mood and Enheduanna begins to portray Inanna as goddess of the storm and of destruction: 9. Like a dragon you have deposited venom on the land 10. When you roar at the earth like Thunder, no vegetation can stand up to you. 11. A flood descending from its mountain, 12. Oh foremost one, you are the Inanna of heaven and earth! 13. Raining the fanned fire down upon the nation, Here we ...
74. Notes (The Atlantis Myth) [Books]
... due to lunar and solar gravitational influences. As it is, the determination of the exact form of the Earth is a tricky business. It seems as if scientists were not quite happy about their results. A reconsideration of the matter in the light of Hoerbiger's Cosmological Theory would be valuable and interesting. Note 59. The name of the dragon Ladon means somethink like the `impetuous, or swift, one'. As in antiquity this name was also given to a number of rivers, it was evidently felt that it applied especially to swift-flowing waters, which is significant from our point of view. Note 60. According to Strabo (Geography 6.1 .6 ) ...
75. KA [Books]
... characteristics of a bull; Baal, son of El, the rider of the clouds'; and Hadad, god of lightning and the thunderbolt. Hadad, can mean The Torch', from Greek das, daidos, torch. The brothers and sisters of Zeus were Poseidon, Hades, Hestia, Demeter and Hera. The snake or dragon figures largely in world mythology, and calls for further study before we can proceed. Chronos', which means time, ' in classical Greek, was a primary cosmic figure, who was personified as a winged snake with many heads. The Babylonian monster Tiamat was a many-headed dragon, according to some reports. It is possible that ...
76. The Comet Of Typhon, Part 1 Venus Ch.3 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... Passage. These parallel circumstances lead to a conclusion that will sound somewhat strange. Typhon (Typheus) lies on the bottom of the sea where the spell-bound Israelites saw the upheaval of nature: darkness, hurricane, mountains of water, fire and smoke, recorded in the Greek legend as the circumstances in which the battle of Zeus with the dragon Typhon was fought. In the same pit of the sea lie the pharaoh and his hosts.(3 ) Up to now I have identified Rahab-Typhon as a comet. But if Typhon lies on the bottom of the sea, is he not the pharaoh? This would mean that in the legend of Typhon two elements were welded together ...

... mentioned. To this evidence is added that of Alvarez et al in a review article in Science : deep-sea limestones exposed in Italy, Denmark and New Zealand "show iridium increases of about 30, 160 and 120 times, respectively, above the background level at precisely the time of the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinctions, 65 million years ago". PRIMORDIAL DRAGON - Stonehenge Viewpoint no 35 We last reviewed this publication in WORKSHOP no.3 (Nov. 1978) p.13. At that time we considered that although Stonehenge Viewpoint and the works of Dr. Velikovsky shared a common domain of interest in respect of their enquiries into mythological matters, nevertheless, the Velikovskian interpretation of mythology was ...

... : Cardona mentioned that he finds it difficult to reconcile a the whirling motion of the axis with Suhr's interpretation of the cosmic pillar as the cone-shaped shadow which the moon sends to the Earth during a solar eclipse. CARDONA: THE ENTWINED SERPENTS . . . the cosmic pillar was often described as having had the form of a serpent or celestial dragon.... And, as [Talbott] continues to inform us, "in several lands the word for mountain' is the same as the word for serpent' or dragon, ' though our natural world offers no basis for the equivalence. ' For examples, Talbott offers the following: In Mexico, Nahuatl _can ...
80. RECONSTRUCTING THE SATURN MYTH [Journals] [Aeon]
... a coherent scenario of cosmic events. Wars of the Gods As a mythical archetype, the cataclysm is not merely a terrestrial disturbance, it is the story of celestial upheaval. The gods themselves battle in the sky, wreaking havoc on the earth and rearranging the heavens. Their weapons include thunderbolts and stone, flaming "arrows," fire-breathing dragons, celestial wind and flood. The tale is most familiar to us, perhaps, as the famous wars of the Titans, the catastrophic aftermath of the Golden Age of Kronos, when "wide heaven was shaken and groaned, and high Olympos reeled from its foundation under the charge of the undying godsSo, then, they launched their ...
