... been a Chamula girl transformed into a Sweeper of the Path' for the Sun." It is the astronomical association, then- the connection with celestial sweeping, the clearing of the way for the new "sun" or world age- that finds the planet Venus in the very guise we should expect. Even in the wake of vast cultural evolution and fragmentation, the nations of Mesoamerica kept alive the ancient link of the Great Comet to the planet Venus, in the symbolic form of the girl and her broom.- HUBBELL CAPTURES A ONE-HIT WONDER Foreshadowing the Milky Way's fate, two nearby galaxies are shown in a dramatic head-on collision By ROBERT S.

The unity of their chemical composition and the scale of eruptive evolution indicates they were formed as bodies of a stellar nature. Only the assumption that the matter of the planets is stellar matter that still retains stores or sources of stellar energy can correspond to the totality of the fact described above." What is Stellar Energy ? It is thought that in the Sun hydrogen is converted into helium by fusion ...

... this respect, Carl Sagan used the guilt-by-association tactic by claiming that "Velikovsky attempts to rescue not only religion but also astrology...." (4 ) But Sagan omitted that Velikovsky rejected religious analysis when Velikovsky wrote that "Darwin's theory represented progress as compared with the teaching of the Church....Darwin's theory of slow evolution through natural selection or the survival of the fittest was an advance." (5 ) As for astrology, Velikovsky considered "the number 13, and specially the [13th] day, as unlucky and inauspicious," both a "superstition" and a "belief of many superstitious persons." (6 ) How could Sagan ...

374. Catastrophism and Anthropology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... from universities, research and scientific journals. Over and over again, historians and anthropologists rejected any historical reading of the ancient catastrophe legends and rituals by reference to the works of Darwin and Lyell [1 ]. When Frazer published his comprehensive study on the worldwide story of the great flood, he stressed the paradigmatic importance of Darwin's theory of evolution, consequently rejecting every possibility that the tradition originated from historical events [2 ]. According to Frazer's biographer, the implicit purpose of this rejection was to undermine the Bible and religion by insisting on its folkloric stratum, thereby associating it with savagery' [3 ]. Since then, 20th century anthropology has tended to view the ancient ...

... measurably equal coordinates of space; time is long and uninterrupted by sudden leaps; the surface of the earth has accumulated its features over long eons of time; nor are sudden leaps found in biology and cultural history, which have proceeded "by very short and slow steps" (Darwin); and social change is part of "cosmic evolution" (Herbert Spencer). We have not, apparently, defined the U paradigm in its present circumscribed form (which already shows it to be on the defensive) as a mere hypothesis that rates of change in geology are to be considered as having been uniform unless proven to the contrary. Rather we take up the U idea ...

376. Sargonids and Achaemenids [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... ) Identical military equipment and weaponry: (e ) Identical domestic utensils, pottery styles etc. Many of these have already been highlighted by Professor Heinsohn, and we shall have occasion to look at some of them as we proceed. In addition to these, there are varieties of parallels that are very specific. Thus for example, the evolution of Neo-Assyrian art precisely matches the evolution of Achaemenid art. Early Sargonid work (beginning with Tiglath-Pileser III) finds its closest parallels in early Achaemenid art, whilst late Sargonid work is precisely matched by that of the late Achaemenid period. Late Sargonid work does not resemble early Achaemenid work, which it however should if textbook chronology is accurate ...

... that disturbance! The cycle continues until the oceans literally boil away and all water is converted to vapor, [producing] an exceedingly hot atmosphere. This is the runaway greenhouse effect. (5 ) This is the concept that must stand up to the evidence. What Morrison and Owen have omitted from their discussion is the nature of stellar evolution. They have analyzed the behavior of ancient Venus in its early evolution by invoking the present heat of the Sun upon Venus. Venus must be analyzed with respect to the Sun as the Sun actually existed in its early evolutionary development. Once done, an entirely different picture emerges with respect to this process. Zdenek Kopal makes this clear ...

... to have been either Jewish or liberal Protestant faiths that have been disproportionately linked with scientific productivity to the exclusion of traditional or fundamentalist beliefs [14]. Secondly, science has often been at odds with religious fundamentalism and catastrophic theories. There is, in this vein, a long-standing history - from disputes over uniformitarian geology to DARWIN'S theory of evolution - in which forerunners of the present debate can be seen. As I have elsewhere argued: "If in the past traditional religious sentiments have spurred resistance to Copernican and Darwinian theories, the Velikovsky affair' conversely, marks the resistance of establishment science to a cosmology charged with fundamentalist religious significance." [15]. As a ...

... existence. To cope with such developments, ever more scientific knowledge is required and this in turn leads to discoveries of processes occurring in outer space that influence the Earth, and thereupon present new problems and possibilities - solar energy, weather control, incursions of hitherto unrecognized chemicals and particles, and even, say some, life forms contributing to evolution and diseases. A modern pragmatic preoccupation with the skies, it would appear, is now being laid on top of the age-old preoccupation with the forces and gods believed to dominate the celestial sphere. The gases that we discuss are mainly effective in the biosphere. We address not only their chemical qualities but their behavior in mixtures and their ...

... time. Does man's collective memory have anything to say about such a situation in primeval times? And, if it does, would it not, of itself, serve to confirm the postulate delineated in the earlier paper? In this connection, as in many others, ancient man did not mince words. As was indicated in "The Evolution of the Cosmic Egg," (2 ) the Satapatha Brahmana informs us that while the cosmic egg "floated about for as long as the space of a year," the year, in actuality, "was not then in existence." (3 ) Thus, in the Ugaritic pantheon, El, who was Saturn, ...
