... Mayan, Egyptian, Greek, Finnish) of similar events, such as fires, earthquakes, and floods. He buttressed his arguments for the need of a non-Newtonian Solar System dynamics by pointing to the many questions about the sun and planets that were still unanswered. In particular, he emphasized the present apparent conflict between modern theories of gradual evolution and catastrophism and placed himself squarely on the side of catastrophism and, in particular, in favor of "cosmic collisions" as "implicit in the dynamics of the universe." Having arrived at this point of view, Velikovsky sought unassailable "historical evidence" for the causes of the coincident global catastrophes as described in prehistoric tales and ...

442. Thersites a Jumping Trojan? [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:2 (Dec 2000) Home | Issue Contents Thersites a Jumping Trojan?CCNet, 25 May 2000 In this paper, we examine the dynamical evolution of the asteroid (1868) Thersites (According to Homer, Thersites was not only the ugliest of all Greeks that took part in the Trojan war, but also had the most intolerable personality. His nasty habit of making fun of everybody cost him his life, as the last person for whom he spoke ironically about was Achilles, the mightiest warrior of all Greeks, who killed Thersites with just one punch!), a member of the Trojan belt. Thersites is librating around the ...

... that he lives on an Earth that travels, and Francis Bacon and William Shakespeare were not persuaded by that firebrand, Giordano Bruno, of the truth of the Copernican doctrine. Even much less man wishes to face the fact that he travels on a rock in space on a path that proved to be accident prone. The victory of Darwin's evolution by natural selection over a six-day creation less than six thousand years ago made it appear that evolution, the only instrument of which is competition, is the ultimate truth. But by competition for survival or for means of existence, never could such different forms as man and an insect with many legs evolve from the same unicellular form, ...

... be dismissed outright for very good individual reasons. A few carefully chosen examples should suffice to make the case. When it comes to evolutionary processes, Stephen Jay Gould (quoted twice) is almost a closet Velikovskian. Gould's theory (along with Niles Eldredge) of "punctuated equilibria" (see G.R . Taylor, The Great Evolution Mystery, pp. 6ff.) is basically a variant of the "cataclysmic evolution" first proposed by Velikovsky in Earth in Upheaval. Gould's open criticism of Velikovsky, while publicly paraphrasing the latter's insights, makes him highly questionable and, therefore, a poor witness- Dismissed. Norman Newell (also quoted twice) was a devout ...

(164) And in the Papyrus of Nesi-Amsu, Neb-er-tcher, the creator, is made to say: I brought (i .e . fashioned) my mouth, and I uttered my own name as a word of power, and thus I evolved myself under the evolutions of the god Khepera, and I developed myself out of the primeval matter which had evolved multitudes of evolutions from the beginning of time. Nothing existed on this earth before me, I made all things. There was none other who worked with me at that time. (165) In a papyrus that dates from Egypt's Eighteenth Dynasty ...

... Venus might be better accounted for by visual effects resulting from going through a meteor shower. What was the origin of loess? It was airborne sediment. Was it perhaps exogenous, of meteoric origin? Heinsohn spoke of a book called Clay and Mythology, which referred to layers of different coloured clay floors' aligned to different stages in the evolution of man. Homo erectus had a green floor, Neanderthal had reddish-yellow, modern man had more yellow and stone age had yellow. This was unexplained. There is in China a 300m thick layer which has no striations or other indications of having been deposited over a long period. There must have been remains from earlier passings through the ...

Darlington, The Evolution of Man and Society (Simon and Shuster, New York, 1969), 118-20. It is reprinted here with the author's permission. What was the cause of Akhenaten's failure? An important factor, perhaps the decisive factor, was the disastrous results of his marriages. His incestuous marriages gave only daughters; his other marriages gave sons who died young... Politically and indeed genetically the obsessive incest of Akhenaten seems to have destroyed ...

But, as Dickinson admitted: "Comets still crash into Earth, albeit infrequently, but when they do, the course of evolution can change abruptly." [73] What, then, was so laughable about Velikovsky's proposition? The Solar System Some of the greatest and most significant changes in astronomy, however, occurred not so much in the nature of the planets, or comets, as it did in the fabric of what was once thought to be empty ...

... sedimentation, and volcanic activity- be seen at work today. But this was a circular and self-confirming argument; if a unique event had in fact occurred, the rule would prevent it from ever being demonstrated. And in biology the rule was reversed: No one had ever seen a species evolve. When Velikovsky first proposed a catastrophist version of evolution (in Earth in Upheaval), it was again dismissed or ignored, despite the clear possibility that catastrophes generating or accompanied by radiation could cause mutations in a way gradual Darwinian evolution could not. Recent writing on evolution- such as Steven M. Stanley's The New Evolutionary Timetable (1981) - - emphasizes the myriad species over millions of ...
