72. Wild Motions, Angular Momentum and Other Problems [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Review Vol VII Part A (1985) Home¦ Issue Contents Forum Wild Motions, Angular Momentum and Other Problems by Leroy Ellenberger Leroy Ellenberger (B.S. Washington Univ., M.B.A. Univ. of Pennsylvania) is a chemical engineer, Senior Editor of Kronos and a leading American researcher in the Velikovskian field. The following comments are prompted primarily by Robert W. Bass' address at the Glasgow Conference, recently published in SISR VI:1-3. They cover a range of physical problems either discussed by Bass or related to his remarks. Dr Bass' presentation, "The Celestial Dynamics of Worlds in Collision", lives up to the standards for stimulating reading he set in his previous papers in Pensée and Kronos. His concern for calling attention to M. A. Cook's "obscure and little-known theory of gravity", with its implications for an electric cosmos, was necessary because Cook's exchange with Juergens in Pensée IVR III (1973), pp. 55-58, came to naught. Unfortunately, Bass' exposition at Glasgow in 1978 ...
73. Humbaba [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. IX No. 2 (Winter 1984) Home¦ Issue Contents Humbaba Dwardu Cardona Copyright 1984 by Dwardu Cardona Humbaba, as he is called in the Assyrian version of the Sha Naqba Imuru, commonly referred to as the Epic of Gilgamesh, is the giant whom the hero of that epic and his friend Enkidu set out to destroy. In the Old Babylonian and Hittite versions, this giant is called Huwawa. He is described as "a sevenfold terror to mortals" with the roaring of a flood-storm. "His mouth is fire, his breath is death."(l) More than being a giant, Stephen Langdon informs us that Huwawa "is invariably called a god in the texts".(2) That Huwawa, or Humbaba, personified a celestial body is evidenced by the fact that his Elamite counterpart, Humba (also Humban, Hanubani, Hamban, Umman, and/or Imbi), appears in a star list with the determinative "mul" (in Babylonian rendered "kakkab") that is ...

75. Still Facing Many Problems (Part II) [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. X No. 3 (Summer 1985) Home¦ Issue Contents Still Facing Many Problems (Part II) C. Leroy Ellenberger Additional letters responding to "Still Facing Many Problems" (Part 1), as well as any letters of note in response to Part II, will appear in KRONOS XI:1 and beyond.- LMG Part I, in KRONOS X:1, discussed five topics: wild motions, the Sun's habitable zone, the Worzel ash, tree rings, and ice cores, and how they impact Veiikovsky's scenario for recent Earth history. This survey continues with discussions of ice ages, sea level, tippe top Earth, gravity vs. magnetism, and electric stars. ICE AGES: The previous section on the Greenland ice cores naturally suggests the subject of ice ages, which Velikovsky tied into his theory of cosmic catastrophism in Earth in Upheaval, Chapters VIII, IX, and X. At the time, no theory for ice ages answered all the questions posed by their occurrence. Since no theory ...
76. Catastrophism and the Mammoths - I (Vox Populi) [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. XI No. 1 (Fall 1985) Home¦ Issue Contents Vox Populi Catastrophism and the Mammoths- I To the Editor of KRONOS: It was rather flattering that my previous letter on the above subject(1) attracted replies from no fewer than three distinguished correspondents: C. Leroy Ellenberger, Dwardu Cardona, and Dr. Alta Price.(2) Having read their contributions, however, I regret that I can only echo Ellenberger in stating that much of what they offered is "equivocal, irrelevant, or wrong". Before attempting to remedy this state of affairs by dealing with these matters under the very headings employed by Ellenberger, I wish to begin by setting out some points of agreement and to clarify the subject so as to exclude irrelevancies and the alleged "hair-splitting issues". Cardona and Ellenberger both made the valid point that, despite the demonstration that certain mammoths died of asphyxia, several postulates are possible and that death "is not necessarily the result of drowning and/or landslide burial".( ...
77. Evolution, Darwinism, Popper, and Fort - Again (Vox Populi) [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. IX No. 1 (Fall 1983) Home¦ Issue Contents Vox Populi Evolution, Darwinism, Popper, and Fort- Again To the Editor of KRONOS: KRONOS VII:4 contained a number of discussions of steady, or gradual versus catastrophic and implicitly instant evolution. While what was said, particularly about the researches of Nilsson, was of considerable interest, there are some matters that- on one or the other side of the debate or dispute- have been omitted. I shall try to cover these as briefly as seems reasonable. In nature, there exists a phenomenon called mimicry. There are some remarkable and perfect examples of it in mimicry of species by others having no taxonomic relation of recent character. A famous example is of the African Swallowtail butterfly, Papilio dardanus. Only the females are mimetic. In each locality a different model is mimicked. The models are inedible butterflies of the families Danaidae and Acraeidae. There are incomplete mimics, also. In India, the females of the Nymphalid butterfly Hypolimnas bolina imperfectly ...
78. The Saturn Problem [SIS C&C Review $]
... distinction that the ancients made between the main heavenly bodies: Sun and Moon were usually grouped together with Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, Mars and Mercury as the 'seven planets', glossing over vast disparities in size and luminosity in a way that seems surprising to us. So why did the god associated with Jupiter achieve such ascendancy in Greece, Rome, Egypt, Babylonia and other civilisations? How could the idea have possibly come about that the god of Saturn was believed to be the 'retired' predecessor of Jupiter? Planetary Attraction Kronos/Saturn devours his children- a gruesome painting by Goya.© Prado Museum, Madrid When we compare them to the stars, it is not so difficult to understand why the planets attracted the attention of the ancients. The stars form the 'fixed' background of the night sky- they are so distant that they appear to slowly circle round together with the seasons, as if attached to a huge sphere. The planets, of course, are far closer, orbiting around the same star (the Sun) that we ...
79. The Hamon-Gabriel-Mars Connection (Forum) [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. IX No. 2 (Winter 1984) Home¦ Issue Contents Forum The Hamon-Gabriel-Mars Connection To the Editor of KRONOS: I see that Dwardu Cardona has referred to Velikovsky's Sources [henceforth VS in his article "The Archangels" in KRONOS VIII:2. pp. 27-28. This prompts me to make a few comments. (1) The point I am making inVS1, p. 12 is that Isaiah's most direct reference to Martian catastrophism is Is.33:3. This point is not fairly represented by Mr. Cardona's extract from my book. To make Is.33:3 into Martian catastrophism does involve (WIC, p. 280) the tumult-hamon-Hamon-Gabriel-Origen -war-Mars network of associations; and though it is true that the tumult-Mars link does not depend on the inclusion of Origen in the list (on which subject more below in 3), nevertheless, Mr. Cardona's correction is a relatively minor one, since Is.33 :3 remains, as I state in VS, a tortuously indirect and nebulous piece of "evidence" for Martian catastrophism ...
80. Velikovsky's Martian Catastrophes [Aeon Journal $]
... say nothing of Venus, at the beginning and end of the Golden Age. (91) This, of course, is not to advocate the blind supplanting of Velikovsky's theories by those of Talbott or mine since, in this respect, the evidence must be submitted to just as rigorous an evaluation. But if cosmic history is to be reconstructed accurately, neither evidence nor criticism should be overlooked or, worse still, utterly ignored. Appendix A. Isenberg, "Dating the Great Mahabharata War: A Previously Neglected Clue," KRONOS II:3 (Feb. 1977), pp. 56-63; C. Marx, "Letter to the Editor," Catastrophism and Ancient History II:2 (June 1980), pp. 131-132; idem., "Ankylosis in the Chronology of Reconstructed History?"
