... the AAAS by various groups for past excesses by the more militant and zealous members of that august body against Velikovsky. As a panelist, Velikovsky will be given about 30 minutes to defend his position, a rather brief time to counter 24 years of castigation, although an informal evening session is planned to allow audience interaction and participation. Velikovsky's meteoric rise in credibility over the last several years, most notably by his advance claims that thermoluminescence would show unusual recent heating of the moon's surface, the anomalous high temperature and retrograde rotation of Venus, the radio noises of Jupiter and our own magnetosphere, was rooted in his researches in the historical records of both geological and archaeological finds. ...

... . This research, which is of fundamental importance to Velikovsky's thesis will thus reach a very much wider audience. Followers of Eric Crew's essays in this journal will find much to interest them in "Strange Phenomena", as about half the articles in this collection are devoted to various types of electromagnetic events such as ball lightning and Auroras. Meteors, earthquake phenomena and Fortean falls of odd materials also figure largely in this volume. THE HITTITES: People of a Thousand Gods by Johannes Lehmann Collins, 1977: £5 .75. Dr Lehmann's short book on the Hittites makes a useful introduction for non-specialists to that problematic people. Of particular note is a discursive account of the ...

... Old World influence (including the ancient Egyptians) in Central America and for the theory that the survivors of the flooding of Atlantis founded the ancient civilisations of Central America. The title of the book concerns the Mayan prediction of the exact date for the end of the world - December 22nd, 2012 AD - but not by the currently popular meteoric impact, merely earthquakes. Michael Coe's book ends with the same prediction but his version has December 23rd and a flood. Still, what is in a day? You have been twice warned!

... scientific myth. I was particularly intrigued by a myth about giants with an unpleasant smell who whistled in a distinctive way before throwing stones. The author mentions the similarity of this to what is told about the Sasquatch, but it also applies to the Himalayan Yeti and other mythical' beasts. Could the stones have been cosmic missiles during catastrophic meteor showers? In his chapter about the geological evidence, he makes a strong case for many legends being eye-witness accounts of local catastrophic events, often giving the lie to the usually accepted millions of years ago' scenario. It also suggests that man has inhabited the Americas much longer than experts allow, though a mention of rivers of blood ...

... since the Alvarez papers. Whether significant encounters have occurred within the span of human recording is still debated. It is also unclear whether all or indeed any of the evidence can and should be explained in terms of cosmic agents, or whether mankind tended to associate catastrophes of terrestrial origin with cosmic agents because of the high visibility of comets and meteors. The possibility that one (or more) of the solar system planets might have followed a very different orbit in the fairly recent past cannot yet be totally excluded, although the dynamical question of how a substantial change of orbit could be achieved has not been satisfactorily answered. Perhaps someday someone will write a coherent and persuasive book under ...

... who took the form of a shaggy dog (the wolf in northern Eurasia). Quetzalcoatl was regarded as the son of the goddess Coatlica, fathered secretly by a union with the sun (i .e . he bore similarities with the sun: he was bright). Coatlica had many children, including 400 violent warriors ( = a meteor swarm). They demanded to know who had made their mother pregnant. They declared war on the sun, killed him and buried him ( = a cosmic winter event or dust veil). A vulture (associated with death and destruction) flew to Quetzalcoatl and told him what had happened. The sun had it seems been taken ...

... the balmy nature of spring festivals and summer gatherings on hills and by stones. However, he was still on the right track it seems to me, as the festival of first fruits in early August, as an example, would have been highly relevant during dust veil events caused by the Taurids and the residue of cometary material in other meteor showers, such as the August Perseids.

... , it is a long time since I drank a drink of the flood over the navel of Uisneach'. This implies that a flood once swept inland as far as West Meath, a gigantic tidal wave (shades of Velikovsky). Notes 1. See Kronos VIII:1 , Ilse Fuhr, On Comets, comet-like luminous apparitions and meteors'. This gives examples of the veiled goddess, noting that the beautiful Aphrodite also had a veiled phase during her orbit around the sun, i.e . the solar wind affected the direction of the comet's tail. This suggests that the Cailleach or hag was not necessarily an elderly woman as generally believed by European folklorists and neo-pagans ...
