71. Big Bang [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... conclusions drawn from the standard solar model, which is central to modern cosmology, I agree with Gregg Easterbrook who wrote in The New Republic of last October 12; ". .. for sheer extravagant implausibility, nothing in theology or metaphysics can hold a candle to the [Big] Bang. Surely, if this description of the cosmic genesis came from the Bible or the Koran rather than the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, it would surely be treated as a preposterous myth." Cardona Offers: But the theory did come from a religious work. Here's a short selection from Chapter 1 of GOD STAR by yours truly: Begin quote: In fact, even that so-called pillar ...
72. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Four [Books]
... creation argument, were prepared to accept the Hawaiian myth as sound evidence' for V's scenario, but more extraordinary still, I also learnt that my faintly ludicrous' counter-example had not been nearly ludicrous enough. For in Part III, Chapter III of his "Ragnorok" (1852), Ignatius Donnelly had actually interpreted the entire Book of Genesis, creation' included, in terms of his own cometary scenario. Donnelly's method, in fact, was more or less the same as the Velikovskians' re- creation argument, so that what I at first thought was a relatively modern invention of some of V's followers turned out to be nearly a century old. Having been enlightened ...
73. The Tower of Babel and the Confusion of Tongues [Journals] [Kronos]
... Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of an the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth." - Genesis 11: 1-9 1. Introduction Unlike the worldwide prolificacy of flood traditions, extant legends of the Confusion of Tongues, such as is recorded in the Biblical tale of the Tower of Babel, are much fewer in number. Moreover, the skeptic might still discern a kernel of truth in the flood legends even if the idea of an ...
74. The Bible Myth : The African Origins Of The Jewish People by Gary Greenberg (Book review) [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... of Peleg and the birth of his son Reu 30 years later represent the 30-year reign of Amenenhet I of the Twelfth Egyptian Dynasty; this is supposed to have been some 4000 years ago. Thus: "Chapters 4-7 describe what I believe to be one of the most important discoveries ever made in biblical studies. The evidence proves that the Genesis birth-and-death chronology derives from Egyptian king lists and coincides precisely with what Egyptologists refer to as the high chronology, ' i.e ., a starting date of 1991 B.C . for the Twelfth Dynasty and 1576 to 1574 B.C . for the Eighteenth Dynasty. The Genesis chronology provides accurate starting years for every datable dynasty ...
75. Catastrophes: the Diluvial Evidence [Journals] [SIS Review]
... continents have not been covered by water during the time that humankind has lived on the Earth, there have nevertheless been some large-scale catastrophic floods. Two particular periods of interest are the Pleistocene-Holocene transition and the beginning of the Late Holocene. Many questions still remain unanswered about the events at these times. The Ancient World According to the book of Genesis, God breathed life into Adam and Eve, the first man and woman, on the sixth day of Creation. Just nine generations later, corruption had become so widespread that God brought about the Flood, when the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days', and all the high hills, that were under the ...
76. The Patchwork Pentateuch [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... and attitudes as P'. A comprehensive list of underlying sources may be found in, for example, Gottwald's The Tribes of Yahweh [2 ]. Steven J. Robinson [3 ], in support of the possible underlying historicity of the earliest narratives (he considers the Eden story), suggests that the brief genealogies and summations in Genesis are equivalent to a Mesopotamian colophon, effectively a statement of authorship, so that we might identify stories as being eye-witness accounts by Adam, Noah and so on. Robinson cites Wiseman (Nashville 1985) and Mackey, Calneggia and Money [4 ], though I am told that this idea is much older than that. It is ...

78. THE ROAD TO SATURN (EXCERPTS FROM AN AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL ESSAY) [Journals] [Aeon]
... in the course of our religious upbringing during the same semester at the same college, we were also expected to believe that the Earth was created shortly before the Sun. Upon questioning this inconsistency, we were told that in matters of science we were to follow the teaching of the scientists, but that in religion, honoring the words of Genesis, we were to accept the precepts of God. II It was on an evening in 1955, while I was browsing through a store in Valletta, that a book title caught my eye. It was Velikovsky's Ages in Chaos. I picked it up, leafed through it, and read a few pages. I did not buy ...
79. The Paleo-Saturnian System [Journals] [Aeon]
... of the polar sun and perpetual darkness  seem to be concentrated around the Eastern hemisphere, and not the north as we know it today. (We do not, for instance, come across any Saturn myths from Mesoamerica, while Amazonian traditions speak of a perpetual day rather than a perpetual night.) In the Book of Genesis it is stated (my own translation from the Hebrew): "YHWH planted a garden in Eden from ancient/early times and placed there the man."  This verse seems to indicate that modern man dwelled in Eden from the earliest times. The rivers Pishon and Gihon are located in Ethiopia. Gan Eden may ...
80. On the Disproportion between Geological Time and Historical Time. Part Two - of Earth, Fire and Water [Journals] [SIS Review]
... gods; the boat lands on the highest mountain in Greece (excepting, of course, Mount Olympus); and despite the cataclysm, Deucalion and Pyrrha come upon a familiar temple that has suffered no worse than the dousing of its altar fire. Like the human race, animals reappear on the Earth by spontaneous generation. The Book of Genesis relates what appears to be a purer form of this tradition. Although it serves as a backdrop to the beginning of Israel's history, the Hebrew version is not obviously Israel-centred. Nor is it myth-adulterated. The ark lands on Mount Ararat; the altar on which Noah sacrifices has to be built from new; his family repopulates the Earth ...
