51. The Great Father [Books]
... There are grounds for speaking of an archaic monotheism, astral in nature, existing long before the idea of God received its spiritual and philosophical elevation in Hebrew and Greek thought. To the ancients themselves the entire question was simply a matter of concrete history: the present world is a fragmented copy of an earlier age, in which the supreme light god stood alone in a primeval sea, occupying the cosmic centre. Ancient Egyptian texts repeatedly invoke a singular figure worshipped as the greatest and highest light of the primeval age. One of his many names was Atum, a god "born in the Abyss before the sky existed, before the earth existed." (2 ) These ...

52. The Paleo-Saturnian System [Journals] [Aeon]
... status. Could it not, therefore, be possible that the north pole of myth, the site of the World Mountain, was what is now Ethiopia? People had no compass in those days and, if the stars were not visible, there would have been no North Star. Rather, wherever the World Mountain, or beam of light, was located would have been considered the top, or center, of the world. Also, if Saturn's gravitational force hulked over the Afar triangle, would that not explain the atmospheric concentration which would have blocked out the stars in the area from where those traditions originate? Which raises another question: If the atmosphere was concentrated in ...

... From: Kronos Vol. IV No. 3 (Spring 1979) Home | Issue Contents Forum "Let There Be Light" - A Criticism To the Editor of KRONOS: After reading Dwardu Cardona's paper "Let There be Light" (KRONOS,Vol. III, No. 3),1 found a problem with the author's conception of the role collective amnesia played in forming Creation myths. Explaining that mankind repressed painful memories of destruction and fear of god brought about by Saturn exploding as a nova, Cardona states: "Primitive man could not live under these conditions and his mind, in a collective attempt to retain its sanity, reversed the aspect of reality. ...

54. The Age of Purple Darkness [Journals] [Aeon]
... a Senior Editor for KRONOS, raised some objections to Cardona's article. This resulted in a protracted debate between Cardona and Griffard conducted through the medium of private correspondence and, since the issues between them were never resolved, Cardona's article, as also Ashton's, remained unpublished. A revised version of "Darkness and the Deep" finally saw the light of day in AEON in 1993. It is, therefore, only fitting that Ashton's essay on the same subject should now be aired. The version submitted below is the one Ashton had prepared for KRONOS, and is dated February 12, 1981. Other than a few minor editorial touches, it is presented here without any changes. ...

55. A MISSED OPPORTUNITY? [Journals] [Pensee]
... . But soon questions were asked, the results were placed in doubt and since then every total solar eclipse was sought out by new expeditions, new photographs, and new checking. An unequivocal result was eluding the scientific world. The present expedition to Africa will not supply it either. According to the General Theory of Relativity a beam of light from a fixed star is deflected slightly from its rectilinear path when passing near a massive body. The massive body, suggested by Einstein, is the sun. Jupiter's mass, a thousand times smaller than the solar mass, would produce a deflection too small for precise measurement. During a total solar eclipse the star light is visible. ...

56. Did Saturn Explode Twice? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the so called dawn of creation which implies that Talbotts "sun of night" would have been an already-spent star. Since Cardona's theory is also well founded, it is time to ask the question: did Saturn explode twice? According to the Bible, Saturn definitely exploded twice. In Genesis 1:3 "God said let there be light and there was light. God saw the light was good." (Jerusalem Bible) In Genesis 7:10 "And it came to pass after seven days that the waters of the flood were on the Earth." (King James version) In Kronos V:I (pp. 6 and 7) Velikovsky points out ...

... human period man did not see the sun either "rise" or "set". The utter absence of words that can be translated "sun" from all the oldest world thought is sufficient proof that the solar orb was not the conspicuous object in the firmament which it is today. The vapor canopy acted as a sun with its light universally diffused a sun as large as the big round sky. A vapor canopy had to revolve from west to east in order to exist, as every astronomer knows. So, too, I have found legendary statements coming down from the most hoary antiquity that the sun at one time actually arose in the west and set in the ...

... same amount of microwave radiation. Without some kind of dark matter, unlike any that we have observed on Earth despite 20 years of experiments, big-bang theory makes contradictory predictions for the density of matter in the universe. Inflation requires a density 20 times larger than that implied by big bang nucleosynthesis, the theory's explanation of the origin of the light elements. And without dark energy, the theory predicts that the universe is only about 8 billion years old, which is billions of years younger than the age of many stars in our galaxy. What is more, the big bang theory can boast of no quantitative predictions that have subsequently been validated by observation. The successes claimed by ...

... the book are one of its weak points, but I may safely say that I have placed the various dates as low as I fairly could, considering the evidence, and I have aimed to do this rather than to establish any system of chronology. I believe that time will show the Babylonian traditions of Genesis to be invaluable for the light they will throw on the Pentateuch, but at present there are so many blanks in the evidence that positive conclusions on several pints are impossible. I may add in conclusion that my present work is intended as a popular ac~unt, and I have introduced only so much explanation as seems necessary for the proper understanding of the subject ...
