1. Common Sense About Ancient Maps [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 1 No 2 (1993) Home | Issue Contents Common Sense About Ancient Maps Charles Ginenthal In 1984, C. Leroy Ellenberger raised the issue of "ice cores" from Greenland and Antarctica as a form of evidence to test Velikovsky's theory, stating that there exists another heretofore generally ignored long-term stratigraphy that bears witness to the times covered by Worlds In Collision. This record resides in the ice caps in the Arctic and Antarctic, which contain a seasonal fluctuation in oxygen isotopes in the water comprising the ice. (1 ) Ellenberger continues: As a test of Velikovsky's scenario of historical cosmic catastrophes, the initial expectation was that the ice would preserve ...
2. Imaginary Worlds: The Debate Heats Up [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:5 (Jan 2000) Home | Issue Contents Imaginary Worlds: The Debate Heats Up Alasdair Beal, from Leeds, West Yorks, England, writes: Charting Imaginary Worlds? As someone who has been interested for many years by the old maps featured in Charles Hapgood's classic Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings, I turned to Sean Mewhinney's critique [2 ] with great interest. Would he expose them as modern fakes, lucky guesses, or perhaps even figments of Hapgood's imagination? Sadly, the article proved a great disappointment. Much of it is not even about Hapgood's maps. First it treats us to two pages about Arlington Mallery, followed by ...
3. Charting Imaginary Worlds: Pole Shifts, Ice Sheets, and Ancient Sea Kings [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:3 (Dec 1998) Home | Issue Contents Charting Imaginary Worlds: Pole Shifts, Ice Sheets, and Ancient Sea Kings Sean Mewhinney In this paper, I aim to examine a little book that has probably influenced more people than Worlds in Collision- Charles Hapgood's Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings. Ice cores or old maps- which to believe? Can we learn something about Earth's past from the study of ice cores? Charles Ginenthal, for one, has been convinced by Hapgood that Greenland was ice-free only a few thousand years ago. [1 ] Ginenthal, of course, is not the only catastrophist to give Hapgood's book his unqualified endorsement ...
4. Mapping Bombastic Evasion, Denial And Subterfuge [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 4 No 4 (1999) Home | Issue Contents PART VI Mapping Bombastic Evasion, Denial And Subterfuge Charles Ginenthal In his fifth paper, Mewhinney presents evidence in order to debunk the ancient maps of Greenland and Antarctica presented in the works of Arlington Mallery and Charles Hapgood. He claims "the maps in existence are neither ancient nor accurate."202 He adds: "There is something sober and scientific about maps, something that lends solidity to the world of imagination. Robert Louis Stevenson drew the map of Treasure Island before he wrote the story. `The shape of it took my fancy beyond expression; it contained harbours that pleased me like ...
5. Old World Maps -- A Response to Charles Ginenthal [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 2 No 2 (1994) Home | Issue Contents Old World Maps- A Response to Charles Ginenthal Norman Schwarz ABSTRACT Charles Ginenthal's article, "Common Sense About Ancient Maps", in Vol. 1, No. 2 of The Velikovskian adduced evidence that various Renaissance and earlier world maps were really the product of an old, but historical civilization that went back to a time before the present polar ice reformed. He issued a challenge to anyone who could present evidence of the validity of these old maps. This essay answers his challenge using only specific information from reputable scholars, scientifically measured data, primary arithmetic and the maps themselves. OLD WORLD ...
6. Analysis Of Old World Maps [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 2 No 2 (1994) Home | Issue Contents Analysis Of Old World Maps Charles Ginenthal In "Old World Maps- A Response to Charles Ginenthal," Norman Schwarz's critique of my article, "Common Sense About Ancient Maps" (1 ) he contends that the longitude of the Oronteus Finaeus map of 1532 is the same as that of Ptolemy's World Map; the Papal Bull Inter Caetera of May 4, 1493; Robert Thorne's map of 1525; the Mercator World Map of 1538 and the Reimal Map. Therefore, since each of these maps correlates with the original draft of the Oronteus Finaeus map, showing the Prime Meridian of longitude, one ...
7. Hapgood's Ancient Maps (Review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2001:1 (Apr 2001) Home | Issue Contents Hapgood's Ancient Maps Reviewed by Michael G. Reade Readers may like to know that Charles H. Hapgood's Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings is once again obtainable, having been out of print for a while. It is published by Adventures Unlimited Press, One Adventure Place, Kempton, Illinois 60946 USA, the cover price being $19 95. My copy (marked 1996 Edition') actually cost £16 99 when ordered through a local (Oxfordshire) bookshop. It includes a set of reproductions of about 35 ancient maps, largely from the era of 1450-1550 AD, together ...
8. Sean Mewhinney's Missing Subglacial Topography [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... of course is not the only catastrophist to give Hapgood's book his unqualified endorsement". The footnote Mewhinney presented at the bottom of page 25 "C . Ginenthal, Ice Core Evidence', The Velikovskian, II:4 (1994), pp. 53 ff" is quite misleading because there I only spent one paragraph on these old maps. What Mewhinney saw but omitted from discussing let alone analyzing is found in that footnote in my "Ice Core Evidence" paper, page 54, where I specifically pointed to my real article on these maps (Charles Ginenthal, "Common Sense About Ancient Maps," The Velikovskian, I:2 (1993):7-17) ...
9. Imaginary Worlds [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:4 (July 1999) Home | Issue Contents Imaginary Worlds Richard M. Smith, from Banning, California, writes: In reading Sean Mewhinney's article on ancient maps,  I was greatly disappointed with the author's use of ridicule and with AEON for publishing the article in that form. We catastrophists continually decry the use of such tactics by conventional thinkers. Why tolerate its use in AEON, even from a conventional thinker? The article could have been written in a more scholarly style regardless of Mewhinney's views. Following are some observations that I wish to make regarding some of the pronouncements contained in the article in question. Mewhinney states: ...
10. Paradise -- The Lost Frontier: Early Voyages to the Forbidden Isles [Journals] [Aeon]
... company, an idyllic land; but his followers encountered hostile natives. These warriors of the forests evoked biblical images of Gog-Magog and the legions of Satan. It remained uncertain whether the wandering Norwegians had found Paradise or Hel, in Christian mythology a land of demons. Phoenician mariners not only sailed to Paradise, they had the temerity to begin mapping its borders. According to historian-diver Robert Marx, a document in Madrid's National Library identifies Bracir as an isle that King Solomon's explorers discovered in the 10th century BC. [2 ] Diodorus Siculus, a Sicilian geographer during the 1st century AD, noted that the Phoenicians had discovered a large, fertile continent opposite Africa about 10,000 ...
