201. Worlds in Collision in Macmillan's Catalogues [Journals] [Kronos]
... their orbits as we like to think ? They haven't always been, according to Dr. Velikovsky, and may not always be in the future. More than once in the dim past they ran amok and caused enormous cataclysms. The evidence for these fearful and wonderful speculations is enormous. It exists in the excavated history, and in the folklores of peoples all over the globe. February Probably $5 .00 Gods and Men A TESTIMONY OF SCIENCE AND RELIGION BY SIR RICHARD GREGORY The aim of this scholarly book is to show that religion and science are part of an evolutionary development of civilization, and that when it is realized that each must adapt itself to thought, all ...

203. Maturation of Newborn Female Rats Under Elevated Levels of Carbon Dioxide [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... ) an interspecies basis, and (b ) an intercontinental basis. A changed CO2content for the atmosphere is the only climatic factor, intercontinental and global in scope, that we see able to account for this. Human largeness as reported in such ways as (1 ) fossil remains, (2 ) archaeological indications, and (3 ) folklore traditions, also exists on an intercontinental basis from ancient times. The geochemical aspect of this theory was presented in the above-mentioned essay "A Comprehensive Theory on Aging, Gigantism, and Longevity." More recently, in June 1982, new historical aspects of this theory were presented in "The Longevity Accounts in Ancient History."3 ...
204. Kadmos: The Primeval King [Journals] [Kronos]
... Thebes. This feat, which became a favorite subject of Greek artists, earned Kadmos everlasting fame. Eventually Kadmos would build his celebrated palace, the Kadmeia, over this very spring.(18) While, at first glance, it would appear foolhardy to try and extract much history from the above - most of which reads as standard folklore - it is precisely this account which historians have relied upon to draw a portrait of Kadmos and pin-point his time-period. As Edwards states: "It is often far from certain exactly which details arise solely from the innovation of the poets and prose writers and which they may have acquired from earlier traditions now lost."(19) ...
205. Noah's Ark: I The Ship on Ararat (Part B) [Journals] [Kronos]
... ." News of Reshit's sighting spread among the villages at the base of Ararat and other "peasants" climbed up to see what it was he had discovered. "Each came back and said it was a ship."(50) Shukru Bey, another farmer in the area, reportedly told the curious: "This is no folklore about the Ark. And persons who saw Reshit's find came away in great surprise. There are no cameras out in this wild isolated country where Turkey, Russia, and Iran meet, hence no one came away with a picture."(51) 17. The Petroleum Engineer Not so with George Jefferson Greene, an American petroleum ...
206. Letters [Journals] [Pensee]
... clue to types of regimes existing in very ancient times could come from the fact of an unstable natural order. We notice today, for example, that unstable social situations are often met with an increase in governmental coercion. If this is a natural response, then societies affected by natural instability (either in their current memory or by respected folklore) may give rise to "irrationally repressive" regimes. The specifics of any regime would, of course, depend upon a variety of influences, but more basic elements of a regime's character may follow directly from the stability or instability of the natural order. The fact that very ancient regimes appear to us to be chaotic and unprincipled ...
207. Facing Many Problems, Part 2 Epilogue (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... or twilight of the gods (Götterdämmerung) refers to the time of the wandering in the desert; that manna or ambrosia really fell from the sky, from the clouds of Venus. We found also that Joshua's miracle with the sun and the moon is not a tale for the credulous. We learned why there are common ideas in the folklore of peoples separated by oceans, and we recognized the importance of world upheavals in the content of leg ends and why the planets were deified and which planet was represented by Pallas Athene, and what is the celestial plot of the Iliad and in what period this epic was created, and why the Roman people made Mars their national god ...
208. San Francisco, February 25, 1974 [Journals] [Pensee]
... that both "Venus and Mars erupted into the sky." The error was repeated almost immediately in a statement that "finally the two giant comets settled into their present harmless orbits . . ." Moments later, addressing himself to the question, "Did the Axis Tilt?", Mulholland scored the fact that Velikovsky's references from worldwide folklore are discordant as to the duration of unusually long periods of daylight or darkness. In Worlds in Collision (" The Darkness"), Velikovsky himself calls attention to this problem, remarking on the difficulty of recording time accurately under conditions of darkness, or disturbed (apparent) motion of the sun. Again, Mulholland claimed that Egyptian ...

... to lie down'] the bottles [RSV: "waterskins"] of heaven...?" Comments T. H. Gaster: "On an enamel of the time of the Assyrian king Tikulti-Ninurta II (c .890 BC) raindrops are depicted stored in skins" (22). He parallels further examples from Turkish folklore and Indic, Teutonic and Peruvian mythology. THE PLANETS IN JOB After the vivid catastrophic imagery of Job 9:5-8, the passage goes on to speak of a God ". .. Which alone spreadeth out the heavens... Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south" (Job ...
210. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . Similar representations have also come to light at Harappa (one of the main centres of the Indus civilisation) in the post-Harappa cemetery at that site, and in Spain and North Africa - the latter belonging to the descendants of the pastoral cultures of the 6th and 5th millennia BC when the Sahara was still green. Indian traditions and French folklore, among other things, indicate that the fire-bull rituals took place at certain periods of the year, namely the summer or winter solstices. This strongly suggests an astral significance for the fire-bull symbol, and possibly a connection with the megalithic monuments of prehistoric Europe. (Contrary to the anti-diffusionist views of Colin Renfrew, Dr Baity feels that ...
