... whose journeys are given with compass directions and li measurements, enabling the determination that the Book XIII journey got all the way via central Canada (and Colorado, where a sculpture with an early-Shang or pre-Shang inscription was unearthed but not recognized in 1920) to Central America. This offers a tantalizing clue as to the possible origin of the confounding Olmec culture, which evidently introduced Mesoamerica to cities and the "Maya" (Hsia or pre-Hsia?) calendar. Recent discoveries of a thousand-year precedence of a South-China Bronze culture over that of the Yellow Valley, and of a continuity of Southern-initiated village culture into the North, culminating in the literate, Bronze Shang, lend weighty credence to ...

... to the BBC in Mar. 2001 but had no response.)

... difference between an historical approach to the Bible as opposed to a fundamentalist approach. In the last introductory quote to Part 2 in KRONOS V:4 (pp. 49-50), Horace Kallen exquisitely described Velikovsky's approach to his sources. Furthermore, Velikovsky supported his biblical stories with reports of the same events from cultures the world over. Using Olmec and Hindu sources did not make Velikovsky an orthodox Olmec and Hindu. Velikovsky never "set himself the task of revising the laws of astronomy and physics . . ." as Gardner so cavalierly claims.
