... change of ocean depths with change of latitude, and because of the motion of the great Iand mass which careened into them. It was the reverse of an ordinary flood or of the overflow of a mighty river. In this flood the Iand moved against the waters, and the waters then rode up over some of the land. The Koran confirms the mechanical force of the flooding waters: "The earth's surface boiled (seethed, rolled) up . . . the Ark moved . . . amid waves like mountains." It was upon these temporarily turbulent waters, near the east coast of Africa, that the vessels of Noah and Deucalion rode this latest flood; the ...

... good reason to discuss Velikovsky's theories, but not a good reason to take them seriously at a scientific level. Dr. May winds up by assuming that once-rejected theories will eventually be accepted. If this were so, we would be in awful trouble. Velikovsky's interdisciplinary synthesis gives readers a lot of comfort. So do the Bible and the Koran; so did the Ptolemaic system; so does the coherent system of astrology. I do not consider the scientific rejection of these theories to be a head-in-the-sand attitude, despite the many efforts to make these works have a scientific foundation. I hardly think that those who reject Velikovsky's theories are making the same mistake as Robert McNamara's Pentagon computers ...

... Erg. (1935), pp. 334f.]. Eridu marked, and meant, the "confluence of the rivers," a topos of highest importance, to which, beginning with Gilgamesh, the great "heroes" go on a pilgrimage trying in vain to gain immortality including Moses according to the 18th Sura of the Koran. Instead of this unobtainable boon, they gain "the measures," as will be seen. "Eridu" being known as the "confluence of the rivers," Eridanus had to join, by definition so to speak, some "river" somewhere in the South, or it had to flow straightaway into Eridu-Canopus, as ...
