201. Assyria and the End of the Late Bronze Age [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... My curse, to judgement." (Isaiah 34:5 ) On Velikovsky's own dates, the Sword God motifs at Yazilikaya are over 150 years too late, a most puzzling anomaly. On Glasgow chronology, however, they fit perfectly into the time of the Mars catastrophes. Not only is the eighth century the century of Isaiah, Homer, Romulus, and, on Glasgow chronology, Ramses II and Hattusilis III, it is also the time of Tiglath-Pileser III, Sargon and Sennacherib, the great conquerors of the Assyrian Empire. Like young Rome, the Assyrians worshipped the planet Mars - as Nergal, stormer of walls, bringer of victories. Before the time of upheaval ...
202. Horizons [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... published, and the meeting discussed the possibility of trying to expedite matters by writing to the publisher and perhaps also to Velikovsky's daughter. He told us something of the contents, of which these are some notes: There was a Helladic civilisation in Troy at the same time as a supposed dark age in Mycenae. The Hellenic age starts with Homer. Mycenae is linked to Akhnaton and the 18th Dynasty in Egypt. The Trojan war is given as 720-687. Troy had allies in Memnon and the Ethiopians. Several Aegean, Italian and Sicilian cities were founded by Trojans. cf Vergil's Aeneid and Herodotus. Gordian architecture and that of Troy are similar; conventional dates being 8th and 15th ...
... , of which it may be said that the first two, in historical times, possessed little knowledge of the north, and yet it was the northern peoples who frightened the wits out of Rome more than once and finally overthrew her power. The Cimmerians were a vital Celtic race in the farthest north, better known under other names. Homer alludes to them as dwelling on the borders of Hades when Ulysses visited the shades, and Approached the bourn'of Ocean's vast profound. The city there of the Cimmerians stands With clouds and darkness veil'd, on whom the sun Deigns not to look with his beam-darting eye But sad night canopies the woeful race.1 Thus the poet associates them ...
... might say, suspiciously close resemblance to Prometheus in every possible manner, so that, although included in the Uranid pedigree as brothers, they are more logical as one and the same. Atlas, after having been defeated by Zeus, was compelled to bear heaven on his head and hands, otherwise a mountain enveloped in cloud and mist. Homer placed Atlas in the region of the Pillars: "Atlas himself upbears the pillars high which separate earth from heaven."1 Hesiod, for his part, situated him at the western extremity of the earth near the Hesperides, "holding the broad heaven on his head and unwearied hands".2 The Pillar region, in the ...
205. Tower Myths (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... its misshapen head against one of the pillars of heaven and breaks it, whereupon a deluge comes over the land. South American Indians say that the Great Flood was caused by the World Tree- a kind of tent-pole- being chopped down. Atlas bears the broad vault on his shoulders (Hesiod) or guards the pillars which support the firmament (Homer). Quetzalcoatl, the great Toltec-Aztec god, is often described as supporting the skies with his shoulders and hands. Sometimes, however, as in the Mexican manuscript Codex Borgia, four gods are pictured as caryatid-like bearers of the vault of heaven: Quetzalcoatl occupying the favoured position in the east, Tlauizcalpantecutli standing in the west, Mictlantecutli ...
206. The God-Kings and the Titans: The New World Ascendancy in Ancient Times by James Bailey [Journals] [Kronos]
... Period. My personal inclination is to be sympathetic with Bailey and his confreres, if only because they have the intellectual courage to examine and deal with ancient evidence that most historical investigators of the past century and a half have swept under the scholarly rug. Of necessity, Bailey draws much of his evidence from ancient myth and legend- especially Homer. In his interpretation of fantastic beings and occurrences, however, he is a strict Euhemerist. For him, gods and titans are honorific synonyms for Bronze Age rulers and noblemen. Doctrinal differences between early religions do not, in his view, refer to any praeternatural reality but symbolically reflect clashes of economic interest among early peoples. On ...

208. The movement of myth? [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... we can relate in this specific historical juncture (thus pronouncing their universality- Platonic form) The same could be said of most myths since the Greeks (though I realize that to limit mythological history to the Greeks is a fascist step, which is another topic altogether). For instance, the Oedipus myth came straight out of a passage in Homer, later picked up by Sophocles, later picked up by Seneca, later picked up in Mediaeval folklore (there's a great myth which depicts Judas- the betrayer of Jesus- as a man who once killed his father and raped his mother), to Shakespeare's Hamlet, to more recent contextualisations of Oedipus in Freud, Cocteau, or Andre Gide ...
209. A Rage to Deny: The Roots of the Velikovsky Affair [Books]
... Aristotle and work forward to Newton, he must be understood in relation to the many and very divergent theories of the universe which abounded and clashed in the three centuries before him. As I outlined in my aforementioned article on cosmology, (81) at least three major types had appeared in Greece, ranging from the (probably early) Homeric dish universe floating on water between and being oppressed by heaven and hell, to the (probably subsequent) materialist dynamic models of the pre-Socratics, whose universes (whatever their particular choice of fundamental matter was) were stable and solid, even if impersonal and without purpose, which was much better than the Homeric picture of a cosmos filled ...
210. The Birth Of Venus, Part 1 Venus Ch.8 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... In The City of God by Augustine it is written: "From the book of Marcus Varro, entitled Of the Race of the Roman People, I cite word for word the following instance: There occurred a remarkable celestial portent; for Castor records that in the brilliant star Venus, called Vesperugo by Plautus, and the lovely Hesperus by Homer, there occurred so strange a prodigy, that it changed its colour, size, form, course, which never happened before nor since. Adrastus of Cyzicus, and Dion of Naples, famous mathematicians, said that this occurred in the reign of Ogyges. '" (23) The Fathers of the Church considered Ogyges a contemporary ...
