81. Velikovsky and Oedipus [Aeon Journal $]
... is known, for example, that the first part of Aeschylus' trilogy on Oedipus was named Laius, and that the circumstances of Laius' death formed a general theme of the play. The name Laius, according to Kerenyi, means "king," and has the appearance of being an epithet. (99) This could be significant if, as Murray maintained, the characters of drama were originally objects of worship. (Indeed the tendency among modern scholars has been to compare Laius with some god, usually Hades or Kronos.) (100) Who amongst the Greek gods, we might ask, was known by the epithet of king? In Greek tradition it is Kronos above all who is determined by this epithet, being the King of the Gods par excellence. (101) As Versnel has recognised, it was the fabled kingship of Kronos which provided the mythological prototype for ancient kingship rites: Kronos is king, or to express it more strongly 'Kronos is the king'. The title basileus (king) is stereotypical from Hesiod until ...
82. Sothic Dating: A "Surrealjoinder" (Forum) [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. VIII No. 2 (Winter 1983) Home¦ Issue Contents Forum Sothic Dating: A "Surrealjoinder" To the Editor of KRONOS: My comments in KRONOS VI:4 to the bombardment of criticism of my article on Sothic dating in KRONOS VI:1 have brought forth further criticism from Prof. Lynn E. Rose and "speculative discussion" from Dr. Shane H. Mage. A few more comments seem in order in the hope, probably vain, that I can persuade them of the possible correctness of my position. Let us begin with Dr. Mage's remarks. He questions my use of the verb "shown" in reference to the Senmut and Ramesseum astronomical ceilings. Of course these ceilings were not for "show". The calendar was surely important in the after life or it would not appear on a tomb or temple ceiling but that variety in depiction meant a change in the celestial order is an unproved proposition. On these two ceilings see paragraphs secs. 220-225 in my Calendars where the great differences ...
83. Still Facing Unfair Criticism (Vox Populi) [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. XII No. 3 (Spring 1988) Home¦ Issue Contents Vox Populi Still Facing Unfair Criticism To the Editor of KRONOS: In his two installments of "Still Facing Many Problems" (KRONOS X: I, X: 3), C. Leroy Ellenberger believes that the evidence he presented in the sections on tree rings, ice cores, and sea level- among others- is so cogent that any further calculations or considerations of Velikovsky's theses of global catastrophes in historical times would be of "academic interest" only. So let us look at the evidence presented in these three sections. TREE RINGS The fact that some bristlecone pine trees were found to have survived from before the mid-second millennium Earth-Venus events is considered by Ellenberger a "cogent" proof against "the devastation and darkness alleged to have attended the Exodus". In KRONOS X: I, pp. 95-96, he wrote:"... just as Earth in Upheaval was being completed, it was discovered in 1954 that bristlecone pine rings go back ...
84. Astral Kingship [Aeon Journal $]
... form of a pyramidion-shaped stone called the Benben, previously said to have been preserved in the temple at Heliopolis. (36) "The evidence that the Benben stone was viewed as a solidified seed of Atum is conclusive," Frankfort informs us on the basis of textual material. (37) The stone may very well have been a bolide which was revered in much the same way that other meteoric fragments were worshipped in other cities of the ancient world. (38) Among these it is important to mention the stone of Kronos (Saturn) held sacred at Delphi and the stone of Amon and Set at Thebes. (39) Atum-Re also took the form of the Benu bird, (40) or Phoenix, at Heliopolis; and Clark assumes that "the rising of the mound and the appearance of the Phoenix are not consecutive events but parallel statements, two aspects of the supreme creative moment". (41) Here Clark may not be entirely correct since the primeval mound, or World Mountain mentioned in the mythologies of other nations-- ...
85. Catastrophism and the Mammoths - II (Vox Populi) [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. XI No. 2 (Winter 1986) Home¦ Issue Contents Vox Populi Catastrophism and the Mammoths- II To the Editor of KRONOS: ANCIENT vs. RECENT DECAY Having accepted the difficulty in establishing whether the observed mutilation of the mammoth corpses occurred soon after death or upon re-exposure of the frozen remains, it has occurred to me that those least damaged owe their better preservation to the protection afforded by the entombing sediment. Such doubts do not however extend to the evidence for microbial attack in antiquity. Leroy Ellenberger objected to my so-called "overwhelming preference for 'putrefaction' over 'decomposition'". This is astonishing when one considers that the former was the very term used by him in his first letter to KRONOS. (42) Similarly, Alta Price seized upon my use of this term and devoted a great deal of space to a graphic description of the visible signs of the process. (43) Unfortunately, there is no mention of the fact that, even in a temperate climate, these dramatic signs may not become noticeable ...
86. The Beginning of Time [Aeon Journal $]
... or of Space and Void, the Creator of the entire Universe pre-existed by Himself, and He was the Eldest Magician...Now from before the beginning of time existed that Magician-- that is, God... (5) Or, as Macrobius tells us:...they [i.e., the ancients conclude that, when there was chaos, no time existed, insofar as time is a fixed measure derived from the revolution of the sky. Time begins there; and of this is believed to have been born Kronos who is Chronos [i.e., Time... (6) The equation of Kronos/Saturn with Chronos/Time has long been contested by philologists. Arthur Cook, commenting on the Philadelphians' identification of Janus with Kronos/Saturnus, states that "The confusion of Ianus [the same as Janus with Kronos no doubt presupposes the usual blunder Kronos= Chronos, which from the fifth century B.C. onwards queered the course of Greek theology." (7) The identification of Janus as Kronos, however, ...
87. Answers To Critics [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. XI No. 2 (Winter 1986) Home¦ Issue Contents Answers To Critics Lynn E. Rose Copyright (c) 1985 by Lynn E. Rose Various criticisms of my work-- and of joint work with Raymond C. Vaughan-- have appeared in print over the past several years. Except for some exchanges with Professor Richard Parker and a few others, I have usually chosen not to reply to such criticisms. This may have been a mistake, for it seems that a number of criticisms that I consider incorrect are now being repeated-- or at least are being believed-- by people who have taken my silence as tacit agreement This paper and a sequel paper will end my silence, and will offer responses to the principal criticisms that have come to my attention.*** In the course of some remarks about J. Derral Mulholland (KRONOS X:1, pages 77-78), I had mentioned certain claims made by Irving Michelson at the A.A.A.S. Symposium in 1974. I was not ...
88. Child of Saturn (Part II) [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. VII No. 2 (Winter 1982) Home¦ Issue Contents Child of Saturn (Part II) Dwardu Cardona Copyright (C) 1981 by Dwardu Cardona 6. Vishnu and Shiva Immanuel Velikovsky's identification of the Indic deities as various planets is often inadequately documented. In some cases there is no supporting evidence whatever. One good example is the comparison of Athene's birth from Zeus with "Vishnu born of Shiva"(1) through which it is implied that, even in India, the Venerian planet was believed to have been "born" from the Jovian one. This, of course, necessitates the identification of Shiva as Jupiter and of Vishnu as Venus, both of which were proposed by Velikovsky.(2) Let me say, at once, that at no time did the ancients ever identify these two deities as either of the two planets with which we are concerned.(3) True, this, in itself, does not prove Velikovsky wrong. After all, the Greeks never identified Athene as Venus either ...

... was an electrically-fuelled star, its initial stellar state and its sudden demise seem readily explainable." Juergens explicitly saw Saturn as a "diminutive star", as "the focus of a potential-building discharge, before the Sun 'stole its fire', attracting Saturn's discharge to it. Saturn finds itself much too highly charged for its altered environment. How otherwise end such embarrassment than by shedding excess charge in a mighty explosion?" (ibid., p. 50). 3 Dwardu Cardona, "Let There Be Light", Kronos 3:3, pp. 33-8. 4 See Donald W. Patten, The Biblical Flood and the Ice Epoch (Pacific Meridian, Seattle 1966), pp. 214-21 for a most stimulating and original discussion of the effects on the Earth of what he terms "a Primordial (Hydrocarboniferous) Catastrophe prior to the Flood". Patten, however, places this event at a far earlier geological point, at the end of the Palaeozoic. 5 Ralph Juergens, "Reconciling Celestial Mechanics and Velikovskian Catastrophism" Pensée IVR II ...
