... , and I have with what to confront. Nevertheless, to put into my book the story about Moses opening the sea, or Joshua asking the Sun to stop still, and then at the nick of a moment here coming the comet and do what Joshua or Moses asked, where I clearly said that these things are entirely fabulation of folklore, that the story as it is need to be searched from one place to another place. And so Professor Sagan claimed that he is not versed in mythology or folklore, but he went into that area, and had some ideas. But I already discussed these ideas, I think to satisfaction of those who deals with question of ...

... association of the Greek war-god with the Areopagus, "the hill of Ares" near the Athenian Acropolis upon which was held the highest judicial court. (93) In Egyptian tradition, it was Shu who presided over the court of justice, known as the Ennead. (94) The same theme is associated with the red planet in folklore. In Babylon, for example, the planet Mars was invoked as the "star of judgment of the fate of the dead." (95) Similar ideas prevailed in China, where Mars was known as "Bringer of Justice" and represented as a judge. (96) Samson's Furor "Then three thousand men of Judah ...

... as far as I have read him." Sagan states in Broca's Brain, p. 84 that "Catastrophism began largely in the minds of those geologists who accepted a literal interpretation of the Book of Genesis, and in particular, the account of the Noahic flood." How accurate is this statement? Velikovsky has employed the Bible and folklore and legends of ancient people to show that ancient man witnessed global catastrophes. His approach is similar to that of Georges Cuvier, the founder and father of the science of paleontology-the study of fossils. Stephen Jay Gould, the well-known Harvard biologist and historian of science says this about Cuvier's method of employing the Bible and folklore and legends of ...

... ; this could be made to a small book." (4 ) In October, a Princeton graduate student in geology invited Velikovsky to lecture. Velikovsky agreed to do so on condition that his audience read Earth in Upheaval beforehand. So, on November 30, he spoke on "The Common Frontier of Geology with Astronomy, Archaeology and Folklore". (5 ) After his presentation he talked with Harry A. Hamilton Hess, the chairman of the Princeton geology department and of the Space Science Board of the National Academy of Sciences. The 1930's Venig Meinesz underwater gravity-measurement expedition to which Hess had belonged had provided Velikovsky with some evidence, but Velikovsky was apparently unaware of Hess ...

... cultism, on his part, the fact is that his treatment of megalithic mysteries is tentative, restrained, and highly empirical. On the other hand, he does not hesitate to follow leads provided by local legends and to employ dowsers and other psychics to supplement the information supplied by archeology and mineralogy. In both France and England, rural folklore applies to menhirs, or upright monoliths, a collection of epithets such as "tingling," "twirling," "dancing," "rolling," and "healing". Tradition asserts that some stones change position, especially at night. And farmers report that their livestock react strongly to megalith arrangements, avoiding some but being ...
