142. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . 30 Damien Mackey robustly defended himself against several contributors. Apparently, he is not prepared to consider the idea that Solomon and Sheba have mythological parallels and he regards the United Monarchy period as wholly historical. However the Bible could be regarded as a compilation like the Matter of Britain - a collection of tall stories, real life drama, folklore and eheumerised mythology. The difference is that the Bible has been turned into a historiography of a people. It conveys a religio-political message: when the people of Israel strayed from worshipping Yahweh, the God of Israel displayed his anger by unleashing retribution in the form of death and destruction. The historiographer was responsible for re-arranging the Bible as ...
143. "Worlds in Collision": Reviews and Reviewers [Journals] [Aeon]
... administrator for the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations. He expected Velikovsky's performance to gain his book "prominence in some lists of science fiction." To Tordella, the book was "an unusual conglomeration of scientific fact and fiction, interspersed with extraordinarily numerous references to ancient and modern writings which range all the way from obscure legends of folklore to the latest treatise on the physical sciences." And in the June issue of the nondenominational Christian Century, W. E. Garrison wondered why "a collection of such errant nonsense gets such a wide reading." Among some half dozen possible solutions to his question, Garrison suggested that an "age that is weak in faith ...

145. Graham Hanock: Adjudication [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... they saw a serpent in the sky, but they saw it in the Milky Way, not Draco. There would have been little point in rehearsing Mr Hancock's arguments as the evidence was so conclusively against them. The BBC acknowledged at the hearing that, in hindsight, it might have been better not to have referred to dragons in Cambodian folklore, but they said that this had not been a point of substance in the argument and it had not resulted in any unfairness to Mr Hancock. Age of the Great Sphinx Mr Hancock said that the programme had incorrectly implied that he had originated the argument that the Great Sphinx in Egypt was much older than was generally thought. In ...

... 9 6-9 7- emphasis added). ERRORS OF CARELESSNESS AND MISREPRESENTATION Sagan (p . 10): On p. 303 of Worlds in Collision (Section, "Of Preexisting Ideas' in the Souls of Peoples"), Velikovsky wrote: "The migration of ideas may follow the migration of peoples, but how could unusual motifs of folklore reach isolated islands where the aborigines do not have any means of crossing the sea? And why did not technical civilization travel together with the spiritual? Peoples still living in the stone age possess the same, often strange, motifs as the cultured nations. [Cp. Kubler, op. cit., p. 325.1 ...

148. On the Disproportion between Geological Time and Historical Time. Part Two - of Earth, Fire and Water [Journals] [SIS Review]
... under volcanic pressure - and the chronological detail, presumably originating from a diary record, that it lasted one year and ten days. But the story is not confined to the Hebrews and the Babylonians (with their Epic of Gilgamesh) and the Greeks. It stood at the beginning of every nation's history. In his massive three-volume work, Folklore in the Old Testament, James Frazer brought together no less than 138 flood accounts, originating from as far afield as the Pacific, North and South America, and India . Differing from each other much as Genesis differs from Ovid, it is clear that most of them refer to the same event: a deluge which ...

... was made to sip the water three times, and then the water was sprinkled round me and round the fireplace. The cure was a successful one. A little cold water is sometimes beneficial to an infant's disordered stomach. In the writer's opinion, the old-world ceremony was appropriate for one who was to be concerned with the scientific study of folklore in his maturer years. In a sense, it was an initiation ceremony, for I was often reminded of it by the three female relatives who performed the rite, half believing in its efficacy perhaps, believing in it more firmly than they cared to confess. Top spinning, where it was a magical ceremony, as it still ...
150. Cultural Amnesia [Books]
... strange because we do not recognize the catastrophic history of our Solar System. Macrobius, a Latin author of the fourth century identified Jupiter of mythology and of religion as the Sun. Modern authors do the same thing when they say that Amon was the Sun, or Nergal was the Sun; they were not. Around the world mythology and folklore testify that some ancient terror underlies the origin of many social institutions. The sacred prostitution of the past became the secular prostitution of today. Warfare has its origin in the same terror. As the ancient Assyrian kings went to war they compared the destructiveness of their acts to the devastations caused by the astral deities at the time of upheavals ...
