112. The Origin of the Devil (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... tai-feng, a tornado of the China Seas (typhoon). The devil takes the part of the dragon in modern religion, his divine counterpart the place of the dragon. Upon the experiences of the Tertiary cataclysm all religious systems, including Christianity, were built. A peculiar name for the devil which has considerably puzzled philologists and students of folklore is the Austrian word, Ganggerlor Kankerl. It is chiefly used for a fast-moving devil'. The word is derived from the Latin cancer, a crab, or crayfish, an animal typical both for its curved claws, and for its quick backward movement. This etymology has been rejected hitherto because there was evidently no connection between a ...
113. The Literature of the Bible (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... , the writing of apocalyptic became a fashion, and dozens of obscure authors tried to outdo one another with unintelligible messages. It is lucky that none of these feverish apocalypses is in the canon. They have caused harm enough outside it. Where the original apocalyptic matter came from, is an open question. It may be out of Jewish folklore, into which the original traditional views on world-making and world-destruction had been relegated as the higher form of religion grew. On the other hand, the appearance of apocalyptic after the Exile may mean that the writers drew from ancient sources which are unknown to us, but which point to the more remote East. The other religions of antiquity ...

... of the contest of throngs, in which the fittest survived? Or did it happen, too, that the very arena itself, infuriated, rose against the contestants and made an end of their battles? I present here some pages from the book of nature. I have excluded from them all references to ancient literature, traditions, and folklore; and this I have done with intent, so that careless critics cannot decry the entire work as "tales and legends." Stones and bones are the only witnesses. Mute as they are, they will testify clearly and unequivocally. Yet dull ears and dimmed eyes will deny this evidence, and the dimmer the vision, the ...
117. Catastrophism And Planetary History [Journals] [Kronos]
... more akin to mammals than to reptiles. Adrian Desmond, in his book, The Hot-blooded Dinosaurs, suggests that new research has proven almost conclusively that these creatures were warm-blooded, that they bore their young live, and that they traveled in herds. Velikovsky has also written on the subject, additionally suggesting that some of the creatures of ancient folklore were in fact dinosaurs; specifically, he has attempted to identify behemoth and leviathan**. In this field non-western peoples can contribute a great deal, and North American peoples in particular. [* * See I. Velikovsky, "Were All Dinosaurs Reptiles?", KRONOS II:2 (Nov., 1976), ...

... textbook department. They thought to find it in the Blakiston Company, but obviously the books published by Doubleday could not reflect on the standard of the Blakiston books. My prediction that a new edition of Earth, Moon, and Planets, should there be one, would require the incorporation of some facts in astronomy that found their reflection in folklore as described in my book was fulfilled with a speed I had not expected. Only four months later, in the October 1950 issue of the Astronomical Journal, appeared a paper by Dr. Whipple in which he, on the basis of computations, postulated worlds in collision only 1,500 and 4,700 years ago, when ...

... of them known as the Deluge- will be the subject of another volume of natural history. The historical-cosmological story of this book is based on the evidence of historical texts of many peoples around the globe, on classical literature, on epics of northern races, on sacred books of the peoples of the Orient and Occident, on traditions and folklore of primitive peoples, on old astronomical inscriptions and charts, on archaeological finds, and also on geological and paleontological material. If cosmic upheavals occurred in the historical past, why does not the human race remember them, and why was it necessary to carry on research to find out about them? I discuss this problem in the Section ...
