31. Nova of Super Uranus and Ejection of the Moon [Books] [de Grazia books]
... From: Solaria Binaria, by Alfred De Grazia and Earl R. Milton Home | Issue Contents CHAPTER THIRTEEN Nova of Super Uranus and Ejection of the Moon Ancient Mesopotamian accounts of gods tearing off each other's heads and limbs are not "baffling" (de Santillana and von Dechend, p303) in the context of early human existence. But these and similar stories in the Teutonic, Greek, Roman, Hindu, Iranian, Mexican, Egyptian, and archaic (" primitive") religions are baffling in regard to their positioning in time. Given an empirically established calendar, a general review of the early literature may assign a period to them. Tentatively, we assign these ...

33. The Lesser Light [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... classification of [the First Chapter of] Genesis, whether it be history or poetry, believers and skeptics alike have always been in accord in their interpretation of the terms in the above passage of Scripture. What could be more obvious than the greater light' of the sun to rule the day' and the lesser light' of the moon to rule the night' even though the sun and the moon are not explicitly mentioned. Within our experience, this seems to be the only possible interpretation. [However] a completely literal interpretation of this verse night indicate a genuine source of light, rather than a reflective body such as the moon- a soft light that might ...
34. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Two [Books]
... , and the revolutions of the stars) is the efflux and appearing image of Osiris. Again, the passionate, Titanic, irrational and brutal part of the soul is Typhon; and what in the corporeal nature is adventitious, morbid and tumultuous (as irregular seasons, due temperament of air, eclipses of the sun and disappearings of the moon) is, as it were, the incursions and devastations of Typhon. And the name of Seth, by which they call Typhon, declares as much; for it denotes a domineering and compelling power, and also very often an overturning, and again a leaping over." (Goodwin vol.4 ) Likewise, in section ...
35. On The Origin Of Tektites [Journals] [Kronos]
... . II No. 1 (August 1976) Home | Issue Contents On The Origin Of Tektites Dwardu Cardona In a previous article, "Tektites and China's Dragon,"(1 ) I offered some corroborative evidence in support of the notion that tektites might owe their origin to meteoric impacts and/or interplanetary discharges which took place on the Moon during some of the cosmic catastrophes described by Immanuel Velikovsky in Worlds in Collision. Needless to say, the belief in the lunar origin of tektites did not originate with me. Dr. Dean Chapman, aerodynamics specialist at Ames Research Center, among others, had long held that tektites were lunar fragments which had been hurled into space during ...
... From: Moons, Myths and Man by H. S. Bellamy CD Rom Home Last | Contents | Next 23 Consequences of the Capture The captured Moon was a magnificent trophy, but a dangerous one. Though a dwarf- one-fiftieth of the Earth's size- and feebler still in power-one-eightieth- and though it was hopelessly in the Earth's grasp, its captor was in its clutches, too. A life-and-death struggle ensued. The capture at once caused a terrible succession of cataclysmal changes in the threefold organism of our planet: earth, ocean, and air. The lithosphere of the Earth writhed in the throes of terrific earthquakes. For their violence we have no means of comparison. The Mexicans ...
37. The Crescent [Books]
... of an advanced race whose abstract unification of discordant cosmic powers gained world-wide distribution? There is a specific category of evidence, I believe, which removes any possible appeal to abstractions. I refer to the symbolism of the crescent . In the detailed sources left us by the oldest civilizations the symbolic crescent- which all men automatically identify with our moon- plays a vastly greater role than generally perceived. But in none of the primary sources can one actually identify the crescent with the body we call "moon" today! If there was any single turning point in my inquiry it was the realization that the crescent with which ancient ritual deals is in separable from the band of the ...
38. The Aristotelian Cosmos [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... , Aristarchus' correct theory of the cosmos remained a footnote and a curiosity tucked away amid the minutia of the literature of Hellenistic science. Koestler has also reached the conclusion that it was upheld for, "[ t ]hree fundamental conceits...: the dualism of the [unchangeable] celestial and [the changeable Earth beneath the Moon or] sub-lunary worlds...; the immobility of the earth in the centre; and the circularity of all heavenly motion....[Koestler] tried to show that the common denominator of the three, and the secret of their unconscious appeal, was the fear of change, the craving for stability and permanence. ...
39. Saturn's Revolving Crescent [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... Sep 97, Amy Acheson wrote: I want to bring in a related question here. We remember when the planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto were "first" discovered- since the invention of the telescope) and named after the gods of the ancients. Yet Uranus and Neptune show scars of catastrophe, too. Uranus with its entire moon system is lying on its back, nearly 90 degrees to the plane in which it circles the sun. Neptune's largest moon revolves backwards in an orbit that could remain stable only a short (astronomically speaking) time. Both of them have highly skewed magnetic fields. All of their moons are riddled with the same kinds of scars found ...
40. Jonathan Swift and the Moons of Mars [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. VIII No. 4 (Summer 1983) Home | Issue Contents Jonathan Swift and the Moons of Mars Ken D. Moss INTRODUCTION While reading Jonathan Swift's famous novel some years ago, I recalled Immanuel Velikovsky's hint concerning the notion that Swift might have possessed some unknown and ancient manuscript from which he could have obtained his information about the moons of Mars.(1 ) It was therefore with some excitement when, in the same book, I came across descriptions of "Flying Islands" coupled with the Laputans' "dread in the celestial bodies". My excitement grew as I continued to read of instances during which it was described that there was ...
