171. Velikovsky and the Problem of Planetary Identification [Journals] [Aeon]
... ; rather that he failed to establish proper criteria for distinguishing between the extent Greek testimony on astronomical matters. Since the Greek references come from a wide variety of writers and time periods some kind of methodology would appear to be a prerequisite for research. In point of fact there was little agreement among the Greeks concerning planetary identification. In the Homeric epics, for example, only the planet Venus-as Phosphorus/Hesperus-is identified with any degree of certainty. (7 ) The planet lists from the time of Plato and Aristotle differ completely from the lists of Hellenistic writers as the following table shows: Platonic: Kronos=Saturn; Zeus=Jupiter; Ares=Mars; Hermes=Mercury ...
172. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... and grape pips dating from 3500 BC found in Israel indicate that grapes were being cultivated. Stains on the remains of a jar from the Sumerian Uruk period have been analysed and seem to be of wine also. Some anthropologists think that fermentation actually preceded agriculture and even that barley beer was made as long ago as 10,000 years. Homeric sacrifice The Independent date unnown A site on Crete appears to have held funeral pyres from the late eleventh century BC to the mid-sixth century BC'. In front of one funeral pyre were the remains of a male sacrificial victim in similar circumstances to the sacrifices of Trojan victims before the funeral pyre of Achilles, as described by Homer in ...
173. Twelfth Or Fourth Century?. Part I Ch.1 (Peoples of the Sea) [Velikovsky]
... - 1200 and - 750 or even - 700? After the end of the Mycenaean Age and the fall of Troy darkness envelops the history of these places and the first rays of light penetrate into the area with the beginning of the Greek, or Ionic, Age about - 700. Suddenly, as if out of nothing, comes the Homeric poetry, and the intimate familiarity displayed by the poet with the smallest details of the' life of the Mycenaean Age, five to ten centuries earlier, is a persistent cause for wonder among scholars, a theme for incessant debate. The centuries from -1200 to - 750 are called Dark Ages. They were not dark in the sense ...

175. Thersites a Jumping Trojan? [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:2 (Dec 2000) Home | Issue Contents Thersites a Jumping Trojan?CCNet, 25 May 2000 In this paper, we examine the dynamical evolution of the asteroid (1868) Thersites (According to Homer, Thersites was not only the ugliest of all Greeks that took part in the Trojan war, but also had the most intolerable personality. His nasty habit of making fun of everybody cost him his life, as the last person for whom he spoke ironically about was Achilles, the mightiest warrior of all Greeks, who killed Thersites with just one punch!), a member of the Trojan belt. Thersites is librating around the ...
176. Heracles and the Planet Mars [Journals] [Aeon]
... poet puts the following words into the goddess Dione's mouth: "O that hard violent man! that worker of evil! who distressed the Olympian gods with his arrows!" (4 ) It is curious that our two earliest Greek sources represent Heracles in so dark a light- indeed as some great sinner against the gods. Of the Homeric Heracles, Nilsson was led to observe: "This Heracles is the strongman relying solely on his strength. . .a reckless, violent character who proceeds to extremes, even to rivaling the gods and raising his weapons against them." (5 ) The exact nature of Heracles' sin against the gods is something of a mystery ...
177. Opening address to the participants (Conference Report) [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... . explorer, on Velikovskian lines, of the frontiers of Paradise; dear Shulamit, translator of your father's work for the country of his choice. As an old friend of Velikovsky, who sent him tit-bits of confirmation throughout the last twenty-five years of his life - and queries which he answered to my complete satisfaction (on calendars, on Homer, on Stonehenge …) I wish I could hear viva voce all you have to say about the changes in planetary orbits and in the earth's axis after near collisions; about the geological and dendrological evidence of recent catastrophes of extraterrestrial origin; about the electromagnetic forces which play so vital a role in Velikovsky's cosmological scenario, and about the ...

179. Indeterminacy: Temporary, Permanent, Or Indefinite? [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... The first of these is that most, if not all, of mankind's perennial imagery reflects pre-catastrophic Saturn and its surroundings. The second is that, apart from Saturn's primal, or polar configuration, mythic imagery becomes, in his words, a "madhouse of absurd and contradictory themes." Ever since Greek philosophers first initiated critical examination of Homeric and Hesiodic myth, some mythologists have characterized myths in general as mad. And, during the past century of mythological theorizing, naturists have been contradicted by psychoanalysts who in turn have been contradicted by structuralists, until the entire debate has come to be viewed by many external observers as a scholarly Theater of the Absurd. As I see ...
180. Letter [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... through the memories of man and rock. Recalling him in their very titles, followers have displayed their centuries of darkness and tests of time (this latter a title Velikovsky had selected for himself); have shuffled their ages and sent their cosmic serpents gliding in and out of his findings in prehistoric myths, pharaonic inscriptions, biblical prophecies and Homeric battles in the sky. Yet, fearful of being classed with a heretic, they dismissed their illustrious mentor in a condescending footnote, admitting that he had coincided with them on one or two points but adding that as to celestial mechanics he was hopelessly misguided', and his history had degenerated into farce'. (Recent trends in ...
