... up till now reflect proper names of the planet Venus from these cultures. On the contrary, we are witnessing a typical example of the process of subconscious repression which has resulted in what Velikovsky calls "racial amnesia" insofar as this is an attempt at removing into mythology (i.e. into the collective subconscious- or collective unconscious as Jung would doubtless have it), the dangerous proofs of a non-uniformist chaos discovered on that planet.

Lowery in his letter (WORKSHOP 3:1, p.21), I cannot see any irony in the fact that the features of Venus will be named after "mythical goddesses from various cultures" (NASA NEWS 80-47), or that such names up till now reflect proper names of the planet Venus from these cultures.

436. Catastrophes: the Diluvial Evidence [SIS C&C Review $]
... Dörpfeld have found extensive evidence of pre-classical civilisations [4, 5. In most ancient traditions, catastrophes were associated with divine displeasure. In Genesis, as we have seen, God caused Noah's Flood because of the increasingly wicked behaviour of humankind. Similarly, in Greek mythology, Zeus regularly killed people with thunderbolts, as in the Phaeton myth, whilst Poseidon was inclined to cause great storms or floods when annoyed [2, 5. Such floods had undoubtedly occurred. By the time of Aristotle (384-322 BC), the evidence ... in biochemistry from Cambridge University and obtained a PhD from London University He is the author of Understanding Enzymes, Principles of Enzymology for Technological Applications and Controversy: Catastrophism and Evolution- The Ongoing Debate. He has been a member of SIS Council since 1986. Summary Flood myths are found throughout the world. As late as the 17th century, one particular flood myth (that involving Noah) was regarded as the literal truth by almost everyone in Europe. In contrast, for most of the 20th century, very few scientists have been ...

... lead one to look with some sympathy at the writings of Velikovsky. The suspicion has to arise that the information that comes our way via the mythological record is in some way related to phenomena of the kind we have been discussing. Velikovsky suspected violent events from the mythology- and invented an astronomical "theory" to explain it all. Our quite different theory predicts violent events from the scientific evidence, and the problem is to see whether the prediction is compatible with mythology. So, in looking again at Velikovsky, we can ... entitled therefore to search for quite dramatic events.

438. Variations on a Theme of Philolaos [Kronos $]
... have to depart considerably from the observable realities if one hopes to name ten moving bodies that are part of the present cosmos. Nor is this the only time when efforts to apply old wisdom to current circumstances have produced a garbled account. Nearly all of the ancient mythology that told of the activities of the planetary deities was badly garbled by those later interpreters who insisted upon reading everything as pertaining to the Sun. In some books on mythology, virtually every ancient myth becomes a solar myth, although Velikovsky has now made it clear ... these myths are primarily planetary in origin. The Sun is strictly a second class power when near collisions of planets occur; indeed, the planets are seen as diverting the Sun from its former path, in addition to all the other havoc they wreak. The planets are the actors in these dramas; the Sun is passive. It is obvious that there was a similar garbling in the case of Saturn. The traditions about an immovable Saturn atop some special pole made little sense after the Age of Kronos had come to an end ...

... , sometimes critically but generally constructively. In some fields, SIS contributors have developed his work several stages further and the Society's flagship journal Chronology and Catastrophism Review is intended to provide a forum for this continuing debate in the related subjects of revised chronologies, Biblical studies, mythology, astronomy, catastrophist geology and evolution. In its aim of increasing the possibilities for the exchange of ideas and information within the Society's membership, SIS Internet Digest can be of great value for relaying snippets of information, from the Internet, including reviews, news ... About SIS Internet Digest The SIS was founded in 1974 in response to a growing interest in the works of modern catastrophists, notably the highly controversial Dr Immanuel Velikovsky. In his books Worlds in Collision, Earth in Upheaval and Ages in Chaos he argued that the ancient myths and sources such as the Bible contained records of planetary catastrophes in the Earth's history and, based on this, he suggested that geology, cosmology and ancient history should be reconsidered. In cosmology he proposed that electricity played a much larger role than in the orthodox ...
