... all historical and scientific books?" The answer is very simple- and very distressing. The book claims to prove scientifically and historically some of the more preposterous of the Old Testament miracles. To "prove" them, [Velikovsky] deliberately rejects or redates or rearranges many facts of history and astronomy, and what he does to and with etymology, anthropology and folklore is sheer prostitution of these sciences. "Worlds in Collision" is a natural for today. It is Buck Rogers out of Fundamentalism. It "proves" the Bible miracles "scientifically." Well, it is certainly a big enough lie to stretch even the already distended gullets of the credulous Science-Fiction thrill seekers ...
173. Planets in the Bible: I -- The Cosmology of Job [Journals] [SIS Review]
... ", the meaning of the first word being "stream" or "river" - especially the Nile (see the vocabulary list in Davidson: Introductory Hebrew Grammar, Edinburgh. 1923). The confusion here is not entirely due to the King James translators - the meaning of "flood", according to the Oxford Dictionary of English Etymology, has a history of semantic development through "flowing in of the tide; body of flowing water; deluge; inundation". If we take the second meaning as being the one current when the King James Version was prepared - it corresponds exactly to the German word "Fluss" - , we have a clear translation of the ...
174. Notes on the Androgynous Comet [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . 19. Catullus 68, 51. 20. See F. Lajard: Recherches sur Vénus, pl. I, n.14. 21. Augustine: City of God 4:11. 22. O. Zöckler: Das Kreuz Christi (Gütersloh, 1975), pp.402f., with quotation from F. Nork's Etymologisches-symbolisches-mythol gisches Real Wörterbuch (Stuttgart, 1844), II, 390. 23. A mental defence device which we observe repeating itself again and again. Thus, in both former and modem times the gorgon, the image of the ugly Typhon comet, and Osiris, the benevolent counterpart of the evil demon Typhon, were erroneously analogised with ...
175. Thoth Vol III, No. 2: Jan 31, 1999 [Journals] [Thoth]
... death receive the bloody entrails of the victim...as their peculiar share of the sacrifice." Who or what, then, is Rudra? As the red boar of heaven, Rudra is to be identified with the planet Mars. His very name reflects his color-unique among the planets and relatively rare among prominent celestial bodies-the most likely etymology tracing it to an ancient word for "red" or "ruddy". As I have documented elsewhere, numerous ancient gods identified with Mars were named with a word signifying "red". Here the Celtic war-god Rudiobus offers a case in point, identified by the ancients with the Latin god Mars and sharing a root in common ...
176. The Social Impact of Velikovsky on our Generation [Articles]
... contemplate the retreat of the sun from the northern hemisphere. A shaft of the sun's rays is marked at its furthest retreat and the vigil is maintained until the sun begins to return north. "At the winter solstice cones the second great ceremonial, Soyal, which symbolizes the Second phase of Creation at the dawn of life. Soyal, etymologically derived from so (all) and yal (year) accepts and confirms the pattern of life development for the coming year. It is one the most important of all ceremonials, being often referred to as -Soyatangwul [Establishing Life Anew for All the World]. No spectacular public dances mark or mar its deep significance. Even its ...
177. Anomalistics - a New Field of Interdisciplinary Studies [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... point a word of caution is in order. Because both the term "debunker" and the term cultist" are highly emotive, it would be easy - though ill advised - to assume that all debunking is unjustified and every cult a fraud. Most advertising, for example, merits at least partial debunking. And cults are, both etymologically and ethnologically, well-springs of culture, which includes the benefits as well as the burdens of the various ways of life that we have inherited from our ancestors. Nonetheless, I believe that, in most cases, neither reductionism nor mystification is the best response to anomalous phenomena. What anomalists need, I think, is the ability to ...
178. The Calendar of Kalasasaya (Built Before the Flood) [Books]
... they are always convenient. Thus our calendars show months', which, however, contrary to the derivation and meaning of the word, have not now, and probably never had, anything to do with the Moon as to their length and beginning.3 The weeks' of our calendars were originally, as is still shown by the etymological meaning of their name, the change times' of the two chief phases of the Moon,4 but have long lost this connexion, and also, therefore, any real sense and significance. While our calendars show these unimportant conventional sub-divisions of the year, they do not show any of the logically important ones, such as the ...
179. The Origin of Mankind [Books]
... that this myth is a typically invented one, one of those which have caused all myths to be regarded as being inspired by peculiarities of speech, and as due to nothing but a disease of language, '. For the Greek word laai means stones, and the word laoi,people, and philology does not recognize any actual ultimate etymological relationships between ldas, a stone, and kaos, a people. Yet this feature of the myth is supported by at least one direct parallel, in the, I believe, original Semitic-myth referred to in Matthew iii. 9 (and Luke iii. 8), where John the Baptist is reported to have said in the Desert ...
180. Einstein and Relativity [Journals] [SIS Review]
... giant pinned down in the heavens, variously Nimrod, Orion etc., is juxtaposed near the constellation of Taurus, the bull, facing one of the prominent meteor streams (of Clube and Napier) and, like Achilles, the giant was wounded in the foot or ankle (the Lamed or Fisher King of Romance). Or-ion is etymologically similar to Err-ain (the land of the goddess Eriu, a form of Aine), and Ur-ien of the Welsh, ar-yan of the Hindus, Ir-an of the Persians, but what of Arthur. In one sense he may be cognate with a heavenly bull or bear but what about the root of tree, i.e . ...
