11. Editorial Statement . . . [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. III No. 1 (Fall 1977) Home¦ Issue Contents Editorial Statement... KRONOS: A TWO-YEAR RETROSPECTIVE The publication of this issue marks the beginning of KRONOS' third year. It is with a deep sense of satisfaction and pride that we are able to look back and observe a remarkable two years of growth. In addition to an international, multidisciplinary staff, KRONOS' contributors are also international in origin and the journal is honoured to have subscribers in more than twenty-five foreign countries. When KRONOS was first founded, there was very little encouragement. Subscriber confidence had been shaken by the sudden unexpected collapse of the journal Pensee, and an entrenched establishment was hardly eager to see still another interdisciplinary journal dedicated to the work of Immanuel Velikovsky. Yet, perseverance, tenacity, and hard work overcame seemingly insurmountable obstacles; and today KRONOS is a fully viable and ever-growing publication. As part of our efforts to produce both a higher quality and more interesting journal, we should like to draw reader attention to the new section ...
12. Announcements [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. XI No. 1 (Fall 1985) Home¦ Issue Contents Announcements KRONOS: 10 YEARS... AND BEYOND With this issue of KRONOS, we begin our second decade and can look back on the past ten years with profound satisfaction. A milestone has indeed been reached, and at this time KRONOS would like to thank all those who have generously contributed funds in order to ensure the continuance of the journal. We would also like to thank those subscribers who have stayed with us for all or the greater part of the past ten years. It has been an incomparable journey. For years, we have tried to emphasize the fact that KRONOS is primarily the product of volunteer help and is a federally recognized non-profit publication. As such, all contributions to KRONOS are tax deductible. Therefore, we gladly welcome any additional monetary gifts at this time. For $75.00, one may obtain a rare copy of Velikovsky's pamphlet Theses for the Reconstruction of Ancient History which was first published in 1945. For $15.00 or less ...
13. "Stonehenge Viewpoint?" Biased View (Forum) [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. XI No. 3 (Summer 1986) Home¦ Issue Contents Forum "Stonehenge Viewpoint?" Biased View Dwardu Cardona Reports: In May of 1984, KRONOS received a manuscript from Bob Forrest titled "Reply to Dwardu Cardona's Piece in KRONOS IX:2". Partly because of its length (10 pages of single-spaced type, approximately 8400 words), but mostly because of its rambling contents, KRONOS did not see fit to publish it. As Senior Editor of KRONOS, I wrote to Forrest on May 14 of the same year to let him know of our decision. Part of my letter read: "[ Your manuscript consists of a lot of verbiage which is wasted on a point about which we both agree. Enough is enough... "To my knowledge, Professor Greenberg has no intention of publishing your 'Reply' It is, if nothing else, far too long and rambling." Understanding our "reluctance to publish [his reply in full", Forrest himself then asked if we would be willing ...
14. Indra [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. VII No. 3 (Spring 1982) Home¦ Issue Contents Indra Dwardu Cardona Copyright (C) 1982 by Dwardu Cardona 1. Mars If Shiva was not Jupiter, and Vishnu, Agni, and Surabhi were not Venus, who was it in the Hindu pantheon that personified these two terrible planets of old? The above question was asked at the end of a recent paper in which I argued against the acceptance of Velikovsky's planetary identification of these deities.(1) In abrogating these identities, I left Worlds In Collision bereft of any Indic candidates which might have stood for these two planets. The correct identification of Venus among the Hindu deities was, however, argued separately in "Child of Saturn", Part III.(2) The conclusion was there reached that, with some reservations, Artur Isenberg had presented the best case when he equated the Mahadevi with the planet in question. But because "Child of Saturn" is devoted to Venus and Saturn, the proper identity of the Hindu Jupiter was left unaccounted ...
... From: Kronos Vol. V No. 1 (Fall 1979) Home¦ Issue Contents Vox Populi Asimov, Velikovsky, Science Fiction, and "Worlds in Collision" To the Editor of KRONOS: The first issue of KRONOS (I:1), published four years ago, included a feature by Lewis M. Greenberg entitled "Phobia, Amnesia, and the Psyche" (pp.21-26), which discussed the Velikovskian nature of two stories by the well-known Isaac Asimov. The two tales in question were Pebble in the Sky (1950), which provided a fine illustration of the concept of collective amnesia, and "Nightfall" (1941), possibly the most perfect portrayal ever written of the calamitous effect abnormal cosmic events can have on human behaviour and collective memory. It is hardly necessary to labour the point that the especial irony of this lay in the fact that the author of these pieces was and remains an intractable opponent of Dr. Velikovsky, who has attempted to elucidate these processes for the general consciousness. Yet, as we shall ...
16. Chronos And Kronos [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. VII No. 2 (Winter 1982) Home¦ Issue Contents Chronos And Kronos Livio C. Stecchini Copyright (C) 1981 by the Estate of Livio C. Stecchini [* This article has been excerpted from a letter by Dr. Stecchini that was originally published in the Sept. 1960 issue of Scientific American.-- LMG.It is true that for a person who consults a dictionary the name Kronos is different from the Greek term chronos, meaning "time"; but there is no difference to a person acquainted with classical literature. The association of Kronos, father of Zeus, with chronos is well established in poets of the fifth century B.C. This association is as old as the first Greek speculations on the nature of time in the preceding early period of Greek culture. The references may be found under the entry "Kronos" in the standard reference works for classical studies, such as Real-Encyclopäidie der Klassischen Altertumswissenschaft and Roscher's Ausführliches Lexikon des Griechischen und Römischen Mythologie. It is because of Kronos's association with time ...
17. More on the Thermal Aspects of Venus [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. V No. 1 (Fall 1979) Home¦ Issue Contents Forum More on the Thermal Aspects of Venus To the Editor of KRONOS: My letter with critical comments on Dr. Talbott's mathematical model of Venus seems to have triggered quite a lot of activity.(1) Dr. Earl Milton and Leroy Ellenberger dispute my statement that the difference between emitted radiation and absorbed sunlight must be small. Of course, you can always have different opinions of what is "small". Ellenberger's figures, which are consistent with the value of insolation given by Milton, give a net radiation of 1.2 x 10 16 W. But in Talbott's mathematical model, the ground surface of Venus radiates 8.3 x 10 18 W, which is about 700 times as much. Talbott's suggestion that endothermic photochemical reactions may absorb a major part of the radiated energy is interesting, but I doubt that such reactions can have a significant effect on the net radiation from Venus. The chemical reactions in the atmosphere are generally assumed to be cyclic, in the ...

... am concerned, the origin and early history of the planet Venus still remains shrouded in mystery. Eggleton may well claim that Venus made its first appearance during Noah's lifetime but he would have to convince me first that Noah was a real-life person and second that the planet's first appearance was ever recorded by anyone.

19. Focus [SIS C&C Review $]
... sandgrain. Without this method of research geology cannot exist. But to state that it is the only one we are allowed to use without becoming 'unscientific' is clearly reductionism... We should investigate the geological evidence for or against the relative suddenness of discontinuities, and not simply assume for them a time-scale which satisfies our preferences or assuages our hidden fears." One issue of Catastrophist Geology has so far been published, with comments from a large number of interested researchers and papers by H.C. Dudley (a chapter from his Kronos Press book), Normal MacBeth (Whimsical Aspects of Scientific Theory), W.J. Jong (Actualism in Geology and Geography, reprinted from a Dutch geological journal) and Vit Klemes (Geophysica1 Time Series and Catastrophism, a paper presented at the McMaster symposium). The two earlier papers enquire into the "scientific process"; Jong's, while scorning "modern fantasies about Venus recently having crossed the earth's orbit", finds that "A provisional assumption of uniformity, an actualistic approach in a post-actualistic environment, is indispensable, ...
20. Vishnu Born Of Shiva [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. VII No. 3 (Spring 1982) Home¦ Issue Contents Vishnu Born Of Shiva Dwardu Cardona In Worlds In Collision,(1) Immanuel Velikovsky stated that Vishnu was born of Shiva, as if it were a well-known fact with which the reader should be familiar. This datum was presented as additional support for Velikovsky's contention that the planet Venus was remembered by the ancients as having been ejected by Jupiter. Yet, this writer took early cognizance of the fact that no source was cited for the assertion. Having taken it upon myself to verify the datum, I turned to the works of those ancient scholars best suited to disclose its source. Years passed but nowhere in the sagas, epics, and hymns of Indic lore could I find it explicitly stated that Vishnu was born of Shiva. Having trudged through the intricate maze of Vedic, Brahmanic, and other Hindu literature, I arrived, in the end, at the point from which I had started without once having caught a glimpse of Vishnu'< progenitor. Having ...
