217. On That BBC Film [Journals] [Pensee]
... . But worst of all, perhaps, is the misstatement of Velikovsky's reasoning (inevitable, it seems, in a relatively brief, popular presentation) in such a way as to render it highly objectionable to an informed and critical listener. In explaining why Velikovsky believes the moon's surface to have been recently molten, the narrator says, "Homer tells us that the Greek goddess of the moon was warned not to battle with Mars but to leave this task to Earth, being herself destined to the sweet work of love. But the goddess, the Iliad tells us, was smote on the breast and her heart melted." No mention of the conversion of motion to heat ...

... p.94. Brendan Stannard, The Origins of Israel and Mankind (Lancashire, 1983) p. 761.

This last announcement was made by Dr. Homer Newell for NASA in February, 1963.

Kaplan (Jet Propulsion Laboratory): only compounds containing the radical CH (polymerized) could lend to the 15-mile thick cloud the same properties at ...
220. Newton And Historical Science [Journals] [Kronos]
... that Shishak is the same person as Thutmose III. d) The invasion of Egypt by the Hyksos took place after the Exodus, not before. e) Current Greek chronology must be shortened by about five hundred years, eliminating what today we call the Greek Dark Ages. According to Newton, the Trojan War took place one generation before Homer. It is rather bizarre that Newton used this chronological scheme in order to dismiss the evidence for the occurrence of past cometary impacts. It seems that he built his chronology when he was still in agreement with Whiston and used it later for a different purpose. The new scheme of chronology is used by Newton in order to justify more ...
