71. Shamir [Journals] [SIS Review]
... giant, was also a great serpent, otherwise known as Apepi. The sons of Apepi were meteorites, a fact that can be gleaned from the el-Arish inscription used by Velikovsky as an Egyptian account of the Exodus. Velikovsky was unimpressed with the Germanic connection (see also Martin Seiff in SIS Workshop 3:4 The Dragon in Myth and Folklore' and specifically the white worm of Durham, with his big goggly eyes). Velikovsky was convinced shamir was radioactive, a novelty in the 1950s and decidedly fearful in the 1960s and 1970s, when a dread of nuclear war may have awakened dark memories. The glance of shamir was apparently deadly, something it had in common with ...
72. Some Thoughts on Inversion Calculations [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Earth had a number of close encounters with another cosmic body in the period 2800 to 3500 years before present. Forces in play during those several close passages, said Velikovsky, caused the Earth to capsize on at least one occasion and probably twice or more times. Velikovsky based his hypothesis on ancient writings including biblical passages, on legends and folklore, as well as on certain scientific evidence including geological interpretations of 19th century catastrophists. A 1978 paper by Peter Warlow [2 ] presents a mathematical model for an inversion of the Earth, based on the analogy of a tippe-top. Although this model assumes gravitational torques, Warlow notes, and has maintained the position, that electromagnetic torques ...
73. Cosmic Catastrophism [Journals] [Aeon]
... read very widely in the natural sciences, history, and law. In the spring of 1940, while studying the biblical account of the Exodus, he became convinced that some natural upheaval had occurred at the time of Moses and that it should have been noted by Egyptian authors as well as in the texts, myths, epics, and folklore of other ancient peoples. So, over the next few years he searched the records of one ancient nation after another locating what he thought to be references to the same catastrophic events described in the Bible. (5 ) The results of Velikovsky's research were published in Worlds in Collision (1950), which presented his theories of cosmic ...

From the Introduction: This literature conveys to us the story of creation and subsequent history known and honored by the Mayas, and carried by them through centuries of glory and over miles of terrain.

75. Asimov's Guide to the Velikovsky Affair [Journals] [Kronos]
... before Christ. This cosmic mishap set the ancients hastily revising their calendars from the original 360 days. Why? Dr. Velikovsky says they were right in laying the error to "the faults of heaven." EVIDENCE IS ENORMOUS The evidence for these fearful and wonderful speculations is enormous. It exists in the excavated history, and in the folklore of peoples all over the globe- of Egyptians, Hindus, Hebrews, Babylonians, Finns, Polynesians, Chinese, Aztecs, American Indians. If Dr. Velikovsky is correct he will have started a new era in thinking, a new trend in writing universal history in terms of cataclysms, undoubtedly a new chronology. He will explain ...

... in bizarre forms of fear. Occasionally they may be converted into symptoms of compulsion neuroses and even contribute to the splitting of the personality." (2 ) And Velikovsky's hypothesis of a "collective amnesia" speculates that whole nations "erased" terrifying cosmic cataclysms and buried them so deeply in their unconscious that when they appeared in myths and folklore they were read as allegories or metaphors rather than as the cataclysmic experiences themselves. (3 ) But literary men seem not to be the only mythmakers of a society. Indeed, the mythic process - that which makes the myth come alive seems not to be exclusively represented in the images and symbols used by the literati, but also ...
78. The Legends of the Jews: Volume I - Preface [Books]
... matter of the sectaries and the Christians. Nevertheless the inner relation between them is of the closest kind. The only essential difference is that the Midrashic form prevails in the Haggadah, and the parenetic or apocalyptic form in the pseudepigrapha. The common element must therefore depart from the Midrash on the one hand and from parenesis on the other. Folklore, fairy tales, legends, and all forms of story telling akin to these are comprehended, in the terminology of the post-Biblical literature of the Jews, under the inclusive description Haggadah, a name that can be explained by a circumlocution, but cannot be translated. Whatever it is applied to is thereby characterized first as being derived from ...
79. Year Two Thousand and One [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... Data Base. Thanks to the financial support obtained in the wake of the highly successful September seminar, the accomplished linguist Rens van der Sluijs is now working full time on the development of our mythological data base. This is a comprehensive, non-selective, region-by-region compendium of gods, their attributes and symbols, and listings of astronomical traditions, general folklore, and superstitions. This raw data base is supplemented by a listing of broadly-distributed or global mythical and symbolic motifs abstracted from the data base and currently totaling more than 500 themes. We expect the list to reach perhaps 1000. Of course the files will continue to evolve over the coming years, and eventually we expect to have many ...
... But one has to keep in mind that the age of geology as a science did not start until after Boulanger's death. In Boulanger's time, geology as a science was in a prenatal stage. But as a road engineer, his observations in the valley of the Marne made him draw conclusions which he found substantiated in the existing books of folklore and sacred writings by the classical writers available to him either in originals or in translation. He was convinced that the Deluge was a global occurrence, although this was no innovation on his part but an accepted notion in his time. Boulanger, in fact, was the author of the entry Deluge in the great French Encyclopedie edited by ...
