321. Asimov's Guide to the Velikovsky Affair [Journals] [Kronos]
... 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 some things that have puzzled scientists for centuries. This book is daring in viewpoint, startlingly original in concept, a monumental contribution to modern ...
322. Old World Maps -- A Response to Charles Ginenthal [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... Meridian) would have been through Rome, like on the Ben Zara map of 1487. (12) If Jews had made them, the Prime Meridian would have been through Jerusalem; and if Moslems had made them, the Prime Meridian would have been through either Mecca or Medina. As they stand, the Prime Meridian goes through the Indian Ocean and 90 W is through the middle of the Atlantic Ocean! FIRST POINT OF ARIES Spring, in the northern hemisphere, starts, by definition, at the beginning of the Vernal Equinox- which is at about March 21st each year. Spring is important because the farmers know when to start the count for the planting season. From ...
323. The Origin Of The Moon [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... Of course, it is of no use to counter this psalm with the myth of the first chapter of Genesis, a tale brought down from exotic and later sources. It is probably the most remote remembrance of mankind: the time when there was no Moon. The memory of a world without a Moon lives in oral tradition among the Indians. The Indians of the Bogotá highlands in the eastern Cordilleras of Colombia relate some of their tribal reminiscences to the time before there was a Moon. "In the earliest times when the Moon was not yet in the heavens," say the tribesmen of the Chibchas. The traditions of diverse people offer corroborative testimony to the effect that ...
324. The Sacred Circuit [Books]
... In the Scottish Highlands, for instance, the newly-born sun of Summer, the "big sun " 1 is supposed to "dance" and whirl round three times to the right on May Day (Beltane) The sun thus imitates the "dancing Dervishes "who gave the "Great Bear" a lead. In Arizona the Navaho Red Indians dance to stop the sun at the winter solstice, lest it should move too far southward.2 Evidently they had taken over an ancient ceremony of the sun cult. But, as we have seen, they, too, had stellar beliefs, and placed their "whirling logs" in the north of the sky. In Gaelic ...
325. Arctic Tundra Mammoth Steppe Or Velikovskian Poleshift? [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... , since their bones are found in icebergs, and in the frozen gravel, in such abundance as could only have been supplied by many successive generations. So many skeletons could not have belonged to herds which lived at one time in the district, even if those northern countries had once been clothed with vegetation as luxuriant as that of an Indian jungle. But, if we suppose the change to have been extremely slow, and to have consisted, not so much in a diminution of the mean annual temperature, as in an alteration from what has been termed an insular' to an excessive' climate from one in which the temperature of winter and summer were [more] ...
326. Gravity and Pterodactyls [Journals] [Aeon]
... , or lithosphere. Equating it to an electrical condenser doesn't really describe or explain gravity, and in fact there must be at least sixteen theories from the middle as to what gravity actually is, again with no consensus in sight by the scientific community. There is still, for example, the mystery of the depressed sea level in the Indian Ocean, where a gravitational anomaly exists that might be due to a mass concentration deep within the body of Earth. No one really knows for sure. With respect to the Moon's gravity, however, I find that somewhere along the line most folk's reflective synapses seem to have shorted out. I tried jumping up with one of the ...
327. The Restoration of Ancient History [Articles]
... Cyrus the Great but found much older and mysterious Mart(d )u /Amorites. They dug in vain for the breathtaking riches of Assyria as the most splendid satrapy of the Akhaemenid superpower but found no less breathtaking, yet mysterious and much older riches of Middle-to Sargonid/Assyrian superpowers. They dug in vain for the treasures of Persia's Indian (XXth) satrapy but hit the mysterious and much older civilization of Harappa. They dug in vain for Indo-Aryan Medes and their empire in Assyria but hit much older and mysterious IndoAryan Mitanni and their empire. They dug in vain for the scientific splendor of the Chaldaeans on the Persian Gulf but hit the scientific splendor of much older and ...
328. Chapter 14 Agronomy and Climatology [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... two gifts: silt and water. The Delta and the narrow flood plain . . . are deposits laid down by the mighty Nile, whose water and sediments are derived from central and eastern Africa. The silt comes mainly from the steep and rugged volcanic highlands of Ethiopia, lashed each summer by the torrential monsoonal rains rolling in from the Indian Ocean. The downpours scour the slopes, scraping off their loose mantle of mineral-rich brown soil and splashing it into the boisterous annual flood of the Blue Nile. The good fortune of Egypt is thus derived from the misfortune of Ethiopia. Added to that silt is the humus contributed by the White Nile from its jungle and swampy sources. ...
329. Probable Visibilities of Venus at the Time of the Supposed Spin Rate Acceleration of the Earth [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... also be related to one another, in the sense that their celestial arithmetic is remarkably similar; Hindu yugas and mahayugas, for instance, have essentially the same properties as Mayan tuns and katuns. Both societies also have a similar attitude to the astrological uses of astronomical observations. A hypothesis worth deeper study is that these habits originated on the Indian subcontinent and migrated across the Pacific, via Easter Island, to the central American mainland; it could, of course, also be that the migration was in the opposite direction, but it looks very probable that there must be some link between the two. None of these four versions of the troubled period surrounding the spin rate change ...
... , great excitement was produced. It was obvious that we had to do with a nation which had very definite ideas of astronomy, and that the astronomy was very closely connected with worship. It was also certainly suggested by so many animal forms, that we had to do with a people whose condition was not unlike that of the American Indians to take a well-known instance at the beginning of this century, one in which each tribe, or clan, had chosen a special animal totem. It so happened that, while these things were revealing themselves, the discussions concerning them, which took place among the scientific world of France, were partly influenced by the writings of a ...
