391. Aphrodite - The Moon or Venus? [SIS C&C Review $]
... for when it follows it (17). It is quite clear what Cicero is telling his audience- the star of the goddess Venus was known to the Greeks under two descriptive titles for its two different aspects. Yet Velikovsky implies that "modern books on the mythology of the Greeks take Cicero's account as meaning "that Phosphorus and Hesperus are the chief or only names of the planet Venus in Greek". Where one might ask, are all these "modern books"? The chief name of the planet Venus is clearly ... Ares to the Greeks, Mars to the Romans. Velikovsky has also made an excellent case for identifying the goddess Athena with the planet Venus, an original and extremely important discovery. In pointing out these things he has made an invaluable contribution to our understanding of the myths and religion of the Greeks, albeit a contribution still ignored by classical scholars. If he is right the task now in hand is to work out the precise mechanics of the Greek myth making process wherever possible. For instance, was Ares an abstract personification of ...
392. Vox Popvli [Aeon Journal $]
... acquired the cosmic eye and the cosmic pillar, fueling the imagination of the ancients. This system also had its catastrophic events, in which Saturn was replaced by Jupiter while Venus moved in an unstable orbit around the Sun. The AEON view apparently is that all of mythology can be assigned to the egg, the eye, or the transition from Saturn to Jupiter. There does not seem to be much interest in the period of Jupiter's supremacy or the transition to the present solar configuration. Immanuel Velikovsky concentrated on the catastrophic events during ... to be kept in mind: (a) because the light from the Sun falling on it would have had to penetrate through the "forefront" of the torus, it would have been dimmer than its brighter twin, and (b) the message of the mytho-historical record actually demands that an opposing, but dimmer, crescent should have been visible. Without this back-lighting of the toroid band, the darkened portion of the band, concerning which the record is so insistent, would have been entirely invisible from the surface of the ...
393. Letters [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... that Dr Velikovsky is correct in believing that the Earth was once a satellite of Saturn, Titan must have been the second most impressive object in the sky after Saturn (or perhaps third after Saturn and the Sun). One would therefore assume that it appears in mythology. Yet, except possibly "the eye of God", which has been suggested to be the shadow of the Earth crossing the disk of Saturn, but may be the night side of Titan passing between the Earth and Saturn, I find nothing in mythology ... totally irrelevant statements, e.g., the events of Creation, Exodus, etc., "can now be explained by a natural sequence of causes and effects". Does he think God is an "unnatural" cause? Anthropomorphism crops up: he creates a mythical struggle between God and "Mr Science", alleging victory for science without citing evidence for this claim. He comes up with some unsupported garbage about Bertrand Russell and lightning conductors- again, mere irrelevant mud-slinging. Question-begging is his next offence. In essence he ...

Velikovsky showed in Worlds in Collision that mythological stories and images could hold the key to our catastrophic past. But it seems that a bunch of ambiguous archaic drawings weren't quite enough to capture our imagination in the 20th century. The last 25 years has brought us thousands of full colour images of our Solar ...

The Afar Triangle as the Nether Reaches of Eden and Babel Beginning with Immanuel Velikovsky's identification of Aden (the present capital of Yemen) and Eden, Lynn Rose explores the possibility that the Afar Triangle in Ethiopia and Djibouti may have been the site of the mythical "world mountain," caused by a massive tidal distortion of Earth.

396. Saturn before the Sun [SIS Internet Digest $]
... paper. In view of this, it becomes manifest that mythologists, who have long ignored these inconsistencies and identifications, as well as those who have pointed them out in the past, owe us an apology. It then becomes necessary to rewrite just about all of mythology. It will also become obvious that, with perhaps one or two exceptions, these characteristics and motions with which the ancients burdened their various "suns" and so-called sun gods do not correspond to the characteristics and motions of the planet Saturn either. It will ... these so-called "suns" and sun gods as the planet Saturn and its divine personifications. It was only later that some of these Saturnian names were transferred to the Sun- and thus the title of my paper. In view of this, it becomes manifest that mythologists, who have long ignored these inconsistencies and identifications, as well as those who have pointed them out in the past, owe us an apology.

397. Humbaba [Kronos $]
... , these writers were unable to fit that luminary into their uniformitarian theory. While confessing their mystification at its persistent intrusion into their scheme,(43) they constantly brushed Saturn aside and relegated it to the limbo of unimportance. Rather than forcing their own notions on mythology, they should have followed where the evidence led. REFERENCES 1. A. Heidel, The Gilgamesh Epic and Old Testament Parallels (Chicago, 1946-63), p. 35 2. S. Langdon, Semitic Mythology, Vol. 5 of Mythology of All ... pay any "heed to such notion''.(15) The god's epithet, "the prevalent, the strong", means nothing. Such epithets were bestowed not only on Mercury Jupiter. and Procyon but on almost every other god and planet in the mythologies of all nations. That "seb [as per Robert Temple... also means 'the planet Mercury' ", is something of a liberty. Devoid of vowels. which the Egyptians did not employ, the name of the planet Mercury is actually designated ...
