271. Velikovsky's "The Dark Age of Greece" [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... the Sea, a long wait by any standard and one which Velikovsky said was caused in part by the work involved in keeping up with the many discoveries of the space age. Also, he mused, he may have secretly enjoyed being the only person to know the answers others so eagerly sought. His caution and solitude are understandable in light of the vicious attacks he endured following the publication of Worlds in Collision. His critics lurked in the treacherous alleys of academe with knives in their teeth, waiting to use the slightest slip or error as an excuse to cut his throat. But he knew how to defend himself, as would-be assassins were often shocked to discover. Velikovsky ...

... a person separate to God, Designed for great exploits, if I must: die Betrayed, captived, and both my eyes put out. . . O dark dark dark, amid the blaze of noon, Irrevocably dark, total eclipse Without all hope of day! O first-created beam, and thou great Word, "Let there be light, and light was over all" Why am I thus bereaved thy prime decree? Samson Agonistes THE STORY OF Samson stands out in the Bible as a grand tissue of absurdities. Sunday school pupils must long have been puzzled about his weapon for killing Philistines. But there is much more to puzzle about (Judges xv) : 15 ...

... the furthest south to the furthest north."[1 ] A cloud cover of a thickness of perhaps ten kilometers was deemed possible, leading to the warmth and precipitation that grew rapidly the huge forests of the carboniferous period where, he pointed out, the trees carried no seasonal rings. R Potonie is cited on the evidence for low light intensity in those times. Jordan favored Dirac's hypothesis of a declining gravitational constant. This would permit a larger solar constant in earlier times, which would have brought on the vapor cloud canopy. At some point the gravitational grip relaxed and the rings and clouds descended. Jordan was not concerned with the speed of drop or the basins required ...

... type; [23] or, in dire contrast, that it is a dusty desert; [24] or, yet again, according to Donald Menzel, another of Velikovsky's old detractors, that the planet's entire surface is covered with water. [25] R. Barker went one better: In order to account for the ashen light, he postulated a layer of ice on the night side of Venus. [26] In 1953, Menzel estimated the temperature of Venus to be 50-deg Centigrade; in 1955, he decided that this was too high, so he lowered it. By 1959, the ground temperature of Venus was estimated to be 17-deg Centigrade. [ ...

275. Big Bang [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... 1 of GOD STAR by yours truly: Begin quote: In fact, even that so-called pillar of astrophysics, the Big Bang Theory, had been much earlier posited in a religious work. In the Book of Genesis, Elohim, usually translated into English as "God," begins the creation with the words: "Let there be light." And, it is there written, "there was light." There have been many who have seen a similarity between this description of beginnings and the Big Bang Theory. The following, one of several such, comes from a popular work devoted to the mysteries of the Bible: "Prevailing scientific theory proposes that the ...

276. More on Apollo [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 4 No 4 (Mar 1982) Home | Issue Contents More on Apollo K. A. LeFlem There was as much confusion about Apollo in the ancient world as there is today. His oldest title is Phoebos "Shining One", so he is clearly a god of light. Like most sun gods he is enslaved to a mortal; like many sun gods he is a shepherd. His confusion with the sun is caused first of all by the racial amnesia about Venus, which clouded his true position as the morning star, secondly by the civilizing tendency of Greek thought which diminished his true ferocity in much the same way as it turned ...

... years passed from the conception of the work and its first draft to its rewriting and preparation for the printer. The delay was of great benefit to the work. In the intervening years several important papers on Pharaoh Akhnaton and his house were published; these disclosed archaeological facts from which I could draw added support for my theory. History threw light on the old legend; but the old legend also threw light on history. "The reign of Akhnaton, for seventeen years Pharaoh of Egypt, stands out as the most interesting epoch in the long sequence of Egyptian history," wrote Arthur Weigall, adding, "there is probably no period in ancient history which so merits elucidation ...

... that this evidence would be found, and it has been found. There is reasonable ground to hope that the new investigation which takes electric charges and magnetic fields into account will, first of all, succeed in explaining the behaviour of comets especially in the proximity of the Sun. The current explanation, according to which the pressure of solar light drives a cometary tail as a rigid rod at enormous velocities when the head is close to the perihelium, is not much more satisfactory than the one proposed by Newton when he said that the tails of comets turn away from the Sun for the same reason that the smoke from a fire ascends perpendicularly, or in the case of a ...

... dramatic of all the confrontations between Velikovsky and the scientists, the famous February shootout in San Francisco in 1974, was thus set in motion. (4 ) Long before that occurred, however, Velikovsky continued making inroads into established institutions. On August 14, 1972, he presented a one-hour talk on "Man and the Universe in the Light of the Space Age" to the staff of the NASA Ames Research Center at Moffett Field south of San Francisco, an appearance that was sharply criticized by the National Academy of Sciences. During his speech, (co-sponsored by the Biotechnology and Planetary Biology Divisions), he suggested that the Venusian clouds have microbial life able to catalyze, ...

... below a digest of the content. WRITING IN KUGLER in Astronomical Theory and Historical Data (3 ), Stecchini cites the following passage from Kugler's introduction, taking it as a leitmotiv for the whole work: "Our monograph... conveys the urgent lesson that ancient traditions, even in the form of myth or legend, cannot be lightly dismissed as fantastic or even meaningless constructions. And this caution is particularly appropriate when we are dealing with serious reports especially of a religious nature, such as are offered in abundance in the Old Testament." Stecchini then goes on to explain that Kugler, in this work, dismisses the views of scholars who have referred to the Sibylline ...
