121. THE BURNING OF TROY: PART FIVE: COMMUNICATING A SCIENTIFIC MODEL: CHAPTER : A COSMIC DEBATE [Quantavolution Website]
... , thought, and science in all their manifestations. I. The first area of debate introduces issues of epistemology and ideology. Where did mankind achieve full awareness, the basic requirement for human memory, prediction, and control? Under what circumstances was awareness achieved? Whence came our capacity to abstract the categories of time, space and individuality? The assumption of revolutionary primevalogy is that humanity developed in great leaps, under circumstances of extreme physical and social stress. From this field of psycho-sociology, one enters the field of language, linguistics, and symbols. Here, too, occurs a universal tongue. The biblical Tower of Babel story is not a unique representation of a unity and subsequent dispersal of languages groups. Does the behavior of "The Gods" cause language to diversify quickly, and yet at other times to freeze its forms of meanings? Theology is the heir of terrible experiences. It was the conceptual battering ram that integrated animal and celestial operations. As the skies opened and engulfed mankind, the human mind responded and worked back and forth productively ...

123. THE VELIKOVSKY AFFAIR: CHAPTER 4: CUNEIFORM ASTRONOMICAL RECORDS AND CELESTIAL INSTABILITY [Quantavolution Website]
... of the solar system since creation. Newton's contention that astronomical science was a late historical development, was challenged by a scholar who anticipated some of the views of the Panbabylonists, Nicolas Fréret (1688-1749), the first permanent secretary of the Academie des Inscriptions. Fréret, who is properly described as l'un des savants les plus illustres que la France ait produit [10, in a series of monumental studies published in the acts of this academy, foresaw the immense advances that could be made in the study of ancient history by combining linguistics, mythology, chronology, geography, astronomy, and history of science in general, taking into account the information that was beginning to be available concerning the civilization of Mesopotamia, Persia, India and China. He realized that with this material there could be obtained conclusions that not only are revolutionary, but also particularly reliable. This point is summed up in his essay, Réflexions sur l'etude des anciennes histoires et sur le degré de certitude de leurs preuves. He saw that the data of ancient history were in conflict with the ...
124. THE VELIKOVSKY AFFAIR: CHAPTER 5: ASTRONOMICAL THEORY AND HISTORICAL DATA [Quantavolution Website]
... is the reason why Margolis in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists followed in the footsteps of Madame Payne-Gaposchkin in presenting an outrageous caricature of historical documentation. He showed his contempt by stating that in a few hours of study of Egyptology he could contradict an interpretation laboriously arrived at by Velikovsky and supported by the authority of William F. Albright. Margolis trampled on the most precious tenets of historical research: he misquoted passage after passage, referred to statements that did not exist, submitted erroneous translations, and subverted the most elementary rules of linguistics. But his quarrel is not with Velikovsky, not with me, not with the American Behavioral Scientists; it is a quarrel with an entire scientific tradition that dates from the revival of scientific learning in the Renaissance. In my essay, having assumed that any person who enters into discussions of scientific method is familiar with at least the main work of Galileo, I limited myself to quoting the complementary opinions expressed in less known works of other major figures of science. But, since there has been an effort to muddy the ...

126. GODS FIRE: CHAPTER SIX: THE CHARISMA OF MOSES [Quantavolution Website]
... wish all people well: these are hardly suggested in the Decalogue, nor are many other positive virtues. The Decalogue is a hard-hitting, explicit set of solutions for survival, brilliantly conceived and promulgated by Moses (though almost frustrated by the preemptive apostasy of the Golden Calf). Even with this explanation, modern exegesis has presented a hurdle to believing that this Ethical Dialogue is of Moses. Winnett [64 assigns the Ritual Decalogue [65 to the times of Moses and the Ethical one much later, to others. Judging its linguistics, it is, he argues, of a more cultivated age. The question can hardly be solved by stylistic considerations, inasmuch as, throughout the history of the Old Testament, we have a condition prevailing whereby, alongside what has found its way into writing, there runs an oral tradition that has not been written down and a problem of lost written pieces that had later to be recomposed. Moreover, the Ritual Decalogue is heavily agricultural. It contains instructions on how to make an altar, to sacrifice, and to ...
127. Velikovsky: A Personal Chronological Perspective of His Final Years [Aeon Journal $]
... and his New York contact, the Scott Meredith Literary Agency. I thereafter attempted to engineer a new, literate translation to be prepared, and sent on a copy of the Preface of Worlds in Collision, retranslated by Pockman, as a sample of his expertise. But, as circumstances sometimes dictate, Velikovsky himself took this sample to a Princeton academic who found Pockman's version objectionable. This was yet another case where academic authority, which Velikovsky seemed to hold in inordinately high esteem, overrode another's intimate knowledge of both classical and idiomatic linguistics. But, fortuitously, despite this, the Diana translation was also rejected. For the March 1977 issue of Industrial Research, my Notebook entry carried a favorable review of Donovan Courville's 1971 two-volume work, The Exodus Problem and its Ramifications. When I next talked to Velikovsky in early April, a full fusillade of criticism was unloaded in my direction, wherein he quoted book, chapter, and verse on why he thought Courville was wrong in his approach to an historical reconstruction of Egyptian chronology, and especially for my part in ...
