21. On Morrison: Some Final Remarks (Forum) [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. V No. 2 (Winter 1980) Home¦ Issue Contents Forum On Morrison: Some Final Remarks To the Editors of KRONOS: In two recent issues of KRONOS you have printed papers by Ralph E. Juergens entitled "On Morrison," criticizing my paper "Planetary Astronomy and Velikovsky's Catastrophism" (in Scientists Confront Velikovsky). Mr. Juergens raises a great many issues in these two papers, and in some cases he has badly misread my arguments. Since I believe the record should be cleared for your readers, I request the courtesy of an opportunity to reply in your pages to Mr. Juergens. References are to volume [III:2 or IV:2 and page number of his two papers. Because Venus and the Moon appear to offer the most clear-cut astronomical opportunity to test Velikovsky's theories, I will limit my discussion to these two objects. Let me begin with the "Coup de Grāce" issue of surface relief on Venus as an indication that internal energy is not a major contributor to the high ...
22. Karl Popper and Evolutionary Theory (Vox Populi) [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. VIII No. 2 (Winter 1983) Home¦ Issue Contents Vox Populi Karl Popper and Evolutionary Theory To the Editor of KRONOS: About fifty years ago a certain philosopher, Karl Popper, tried to convince his readers that a statement or a theory is a scientific one only if it is falsifiable: by which he meant, logically inconsistent with some (true or false) observation statement. Mr. Bethell (KRONOS VII:4, p. 36), and Mr. Brady (quoted p. 5, same issue), seem to take it entirely for granted that Popper was right. I wonder why this should be so. Since when has Popper's word been law? Anyway, any competent philosopher of science could have told Mr. Bethell and Mr. Brady that Popper's idea is in fact a lousy one. Scarcely any scientific theory is falsifiable, in Popper's sense. Newtonian physics, for example, is not falsifiable. (See I. Lakatos, in The Philosophy of Karl Popper, Open Court, ...
23. Discussion [Aeon Journal $]
... "). Ordinarily, I would refrain from commenting on such material and let the reading public draw its own conclusions. But, the various negative comments made about me in those two potboilers requires an appropriate response in order to set the record straight. Canards unanswered tend to become canonized truth. My earliest direct encounter with de Grazia did indeed take place in Philadelphia on Dec. 11, 1975. Warner Sizemore, who was also there, had brought de Grazia to meet me thinking that the latter might be able to help KRONOS which was then in its infancy. KRONOS I:3 had just been published and we were still financially strapped. (In those days, Warner was always bringing someone to meet me in the hope that we would find our "angel". Invariably, that someone generally turned out to be a pompous blow-hard with nothing tangible to offer.) The first thing de Grazia proposed was a $500,000.00 microfiche project to deal with "revolutionary primevalogy", among other things. KRONOS was to broaden its base and ...

25. To everything there is a season [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. XII No. 3 (Spring 1988) Home¦ Issue Contents To everything there is a season Lewis M. Greenberg The duties of the Editor-in-Chief, at least for KRONOS, have been manifold. Editing, writing, re-writing, reading, proofreading, and typing were only some of the tasks. Coaxing, placating, planning, budgeting, and just simply enduring were others. And while these things have an inevitable reward, they also take their inevitable toll. The job of Editor-in-Chief of KRONOS has required physical stamina, intellectual prowess, and the patience of Job. In short, it has been and continues to be an exhausting responsibility made even more stressful by the journal's heterodox stance and the need to balance the demands of competing viewpoints and the idiosyncrasies of differing personalities. The Velikovsky "affair" has been especially incendiary, with emotions running high on all sides. Some have long ago forgotten the real intent of Velikovsky's work. And if, in the end, Velikovsky should be proven wrong, then he is wrong. ...
26. Venus's Internal Heat [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. VI No. 2 (Winter 1981) Home¦ Issue Contents For the Record... Venus's Internal Heat Lewis M. Greenberg and C. Leroy Ellenberger One of the most important advance claims made by Velikovsky dealt with the heat of Venus. In Worlds in Collision [" The Thermal Balance of Venus", he wrote: "Radiometric observations... have shown that 'a considerable amount of heat' is emitted by the dark part of the disc of the planet Venus... and it was found that there is 'a nearly uniform temperature over the planet's surface both on the illuminated and dark hemispheres'.... "What explanation can be given for the phenomenon of the nearly uniform temperature of the day and night hemispheres of Venus?... The night side of Venus radiates heat because Venus is hot. The reflecting, absorbing, insulating, and conducting properties of the cloud layer of Venus modify the heating effect of the sun upon the body of the planet; but at the bottom of ...

... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:2 (Dec 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents Kronos Press www.kronos-press.com Kronos Press was founded in March 1975 simultaneous with the creation of the journal Kronos whose Editor-in-Chief was Lewis M.

28. "America B.C." and the Revised Chronology [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. IV No. 3 (Spring 1979) Home¦ Issue Contents Vox Populi "America B.C." and the Revised Chronology To the Editor of KRONOS: Barry Fell's America B.C. was reviewed in KRONOS III:I (pp. 86-88), but the reviewer, Roger W. Wescott, failed to point out two pieces of epigraphic evidence in (unwitting) support of Velikovsky's revised chronology. The first is the Pontotoc stele (see p. 159), a bilingual Iberian Punic/Ogam Punic version of the "Hymn to the Aten", which Fell dates to ca. 800 B.C. on the basis of the script.* The other is the Davenport stele (see pp. 261-269), a trilingual Egyptian hieroglyphic/Iberian Punic/Libyan description of the Djed festival, of which Fell has this to say-- "The date is unlikely to be earlier than about 800 B.C., for we do not know of Iberian or Libyan inscriptions earlier than that date. The Egyptian text... ...
29. Editorial Statement [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. I No. 1 (Spring 1975) Home¦ Issue Contents Editorial Statement As we begin the last quarter of the twentieth century, we also embark upon the second twenty-five years of a new direction of interdisciplinary thought, scholarship, and synthesis. For it was twenty-five years ago, that one individual-- Immanuel Velikovsky-- revived the concept of the Renaissance Man and first openly crossed the artificial boundaries of specialized study in an effort to fathom the riddles of the Cosmos and unravel the tangled web of human endeavor in all its manifold aspects. KRONOS, Lord of the Universe during that period of time known as the Golden Age; and with KRONOS we hope to inaugurate a second Golden Age of intellectual pursuit whose light will illuminate new paths of scholarship, new insights of thought, new methods of inquiry. May KRONOS serve as an inspiring beacon to all who would ask fundamental questions concerning the established precepts of knowledge. Assuredly, for those who seek, the truth of all things stands to be revealed as one by one ...
