CD-Rom Home Introduction The Jewish Science of Immanuel Velikovsky Russian Exodus Palestine at Last Stekel Introgenesis Before Worlds Collide Left Wing McCarthyism Opinion Divided Einstein and Carbon-14 The Late 1950s The Conversion of de Grazia Five Years Countdown to Confrontation Velikovsky's Challenge Bibliography Immanuel Velikovsky's Jewish Science Opinion Divided From the publication of Worlds in Collision in 1950 until his death in 1979, Immanuel Velikovsky was in an unusual position. His financial future was assured- all of his books remained in print through his lifetime, and some of them went through dozens of hardcover and softcover reprintings- but his reputation was permanently tarnished. Whenever establishment figures wished to make a statement about pseudoscience or the occult, or later to castigate the Scientific ...
42. Crack in Einstein's Pedestal [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... can be accelerated to up to 300 times their normal velocity of 186,000 miles per second. The implications, like the speed, are mind-boggling. On one interpretation it means that light will arrive at its destination almost before it has started its journey. In effect, it is leaping forward in time. Wal Thornhill comments: If Einstein was wrong about light then there need be no connection between space and time. It is far simpler to discard his old model altogether. If the phenomenon of light is caused by near- instantaneous signalling then there is such a thing as Universal Time, at least in our galaxy, and there can be no time travel. This ...
43. Editor's Notes [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of ancient history and I am pleased to include an in-depth review by Bernard Newgrosh. Society News includes a short article by Benny Peiser about Williams Comyns Beaumont, which caused a stir at the SIS Autumn 1996 meeting. Birgit Liesching has also provided a full and interesting report on the conference in Portland in January 1997. Last month's article on Einstein and relativity theory generated a bumper postbag and some of this should be featured in next issue. There will also be further discussion of David Rohl's book A Test of Time. News News on Velikovsky Books Dr. Ruth Velikovsky Sharon is the younger daughter of Dr Immanuel Velikovsky and is a psychoanalyst living in Princeton, New Jersey. She ...
44. Confessions Of A Philosophical Velikovskian [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... Earth from extra-terrestrial agents had often been dismissed with contempt by scientists largely due to the influence of Velikovsky, who had accounted for what he believed to be the most recent catastrophes in a manner which could be easily refuted by any competent undergraduate student of celestial mechanics.4 The reader was not informed that Velikovsky was a close friend of Albert Einstein; or that the latter had the manuscript of Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision open on his desk at the time that he died; or that, about a week before his death, he had told his secretary, Helen Dukas, that he intended to exert his influence to have certain experiments performed which Velikovsky had asked for in order to ...
45. A Proper Respect for Authority [Books] [de Grazia books]
... here a hint of psychological pressure working to take for his own specifically the property of the father. V. was fixated on authority, the higher the better: he sought out acquaintances and enemies on high levels. But he did not gather intelligent up-coming young people until late in life; he has written a book on his conversations with Einstein, yet he would never have dreamed of writing a book of his immensely richer conversations with Juergens about electricity and Stecchini on ancient languages and the history of science. Why? Because they were unknown. His idea of arrival was naive. The great ones would recognize him on the basis of his books. The young would come along ...

... novelty item back here on Earth. The Soviet Union, faced with the same problem, used a pencil. Electrical force is defined as something which causes motion of electrical charge; an electrical charge is something which exerts electric force.- Arthur Eddington (1882-1944), British astronomer. The physicist's greatest tool is his wastebasket.- Albert Einstein Classical physics has been superseded by quantum theory: quantum theory is verified by experiments. Experiments must be described in terms of classical physics.- C. F. von Weizsäcker (1912- ), German physicist and philosopher. Some things have to be believed to be seen.- Ralph Hodgson on ESP. Science is facts; ...
47. What's Opera Doc? [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... important composers, one, moreover, in a pivotal position on the verge of classical, pop and jazz. Known to the movie-going public through scores such as Koyaanisqatsi and more recently Mishima, Glass still derives most of his reputation from three major operas. The first (and, many would say, best) of these, the 1976 Einstein on the Beach, was a co-production with Robert (CIVIL WarS) Wilson. Glass explained that he did not initially think of Einstein as an opera; its classification as such derived from the fact that its large scale made it fit only in opera houses. Satyagraha, about the young Gandhi, followed in 1980, and at the ...
48. Propaganda And Scientific History [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... maddeningly vague, Sagan concluded that it could not be used to make meaningful predictions."46 This is Davidson's analysis taken directly from Sagan criticism. However, Davidson once again failed to report what he had read about this criticism in Carl Sagan & Immanuel Velikovsky, pages 85 to 97, which presented a list of several scientists, Albert Einstein included, who claimed, in complete contradiction to Davidson and Sagan, that Velikovsky's predictions were scientifically valid. For example, Robert Jastrow formerly of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies wrote in The New York Times for December 22, 1979, page 22E that Velikovsky was correct for these three predictions: "Venus is hot; Jupiter emits ...
49. The Scientific Reception System [Books] [de Grazia books]
... product of chance encounters of purpose and provision. Under these circumstances, scientists follow the laws of nonrational collective behaviour. They think in stereotypes (e .g . the eternal harmony of the spheres, uniformitarianism, catastrophism). They circulate ideas via popularization and texts . Thus have Newton, Galileo, Darwin, Freud and Einstein been conveyed. Scientists are at the mercy of popularizers. Their own minds are formed by simplistic ideas, try as they will to evade their grip. A new theory spreads as a rumour, simplified, overly precise, and success comes as a surprise. No two persons understand its extended meanings quite alike. It is resistant to ...
50. Book Review/Thorne [Journals] [Aeon]
... Author Kip Thorne's own comprehensive list comprises some 400-odd major and minor players in the world of theoretical physics, and hardly makes a dent in the actual number. Thorne's own role in the development of his "hoop conjecture" itself plays a minor part. However, the professional interrelationships between any given number of such researchers, from the year Einstein postulated his special theory of relativity (1905) to the present, is perhaps as complex as any interaction between a similar disparate group of nuclear particles. As one might suspect, this is a tale about the people who do science, their vicissitudes, their often bizarre and unrestrained ideas, and the almost spastic fits and starts by ...
