51. Interviewing Immanuel Velikovsky: An Introduction [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... time...so it is only the light of the burning forests and volcanoes that makes light during the day, when it should be light. These descriptions are manifold and Spanish savants, when they came to this country in the 16th century, were [astounded?] by what they read in the manuscripts of the Toltecs or Olmecs and so on. So a picture comes out of a devastated world which moves several times in a period...still in human memory or in a period of recorded history, when man could already write it down....So it is not a picture of a peaceful world, in which nothing interrupts the daily ...
52. The Golden Age and Nova of Super Saturn [Books] [de Grazia books]
... his body. The powers that acted in the Heavens were manifested to humans amidst increasing disaster. In terror, self-abasement and pleading, man created a Uranus-Heaven religion and hoped for cosmic tranquility. Unanimously the legends of the world acknowledge the human to be an imperfect creation; some have him created more than once, as for instance, the Olmecs of Mexico; they sensed faults in their powerlessness against cosmic forces. They projected then retrojected their faults to the behavior of the gods. These notions of imperfection were indelibly imprinted. Perhaps never until the past two hundred years did humans believe that they and the natural environment might be benignly controlled through human intelligence. What may have most ...
53. A Cosmic Debate [Books] [de Grazia books]
... . Why have these models been allowed to persist? Is history but an obsessed recapitulation of disastrous experiences? Is it but a shell-shocked capering? Call the roll of the ancient civilizations: Egypt, Mesopotamia, Palestine, Crete, Cyprus, the Aegean, Greece, the Etruscans, the Romans, the Megalithic pre-historic humans of Europe, the Olmecs and Mayans, the Peruvians, the North American Indians, China, India, Iran, and so forth. Wherever one ventures equipped with the revolutionary theory, old historical evidence is reshaped and new theories emerge. Matters large and matters small become involved. How did the ballgames of many cultures come to be invented and why were they ...
54. The Olympian Rulers [Books] [de Grazia books]
... resistance to law. As the internal structure of tribes was strengthened, the aggressiveness was turned towards the construction of kingdoms and empires. About the same time as the Unification of Egypt may be placed the founding or resettlement from practically disappeared antecedents of Dilmun on the Persian Gulf, the Indus Valley proto-Indian towns, Tepe Yahya in Iran, the Olmec culture of Meso-America Sumer, and Minoan Crete. These represent discoveries of social systems which certainly existed throughout the habitable world. The physical presence of Saturnian cultures, like the Uranian, had been practically obliterated. Huge stone and brick structures were erected in Middle Americas, Mesopotamia Egypt and elsewhere. These coupled a rapidly redeveloped service of astronomy ...
55. Thoth Vol I, No. 19: July 16, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... its long brilliant turquoise tail, and the serpent or coatl." Thus two of our listed five most common comet glyphs are brought together in the name of the god. And the combined hieroglyphs clearly have a long history. The earliest known version of the plumed serpent pre-dates the Aztecs by many centuries, appearing on monuments of the Formative Olmecs. Conceptually, the avian serpent reached significantly beyond Aztec culture. The Maya name for the same god, Kulkulkan, carries an equivalent meaning, as does the Quiché figure, Gucumatz. The same figure appears to have entered Zuni ritual as the plumed serpent Kolowisi and Hopi ritual as the plumed serpent Palulukong. Though the figure of Quetzalcoatl ...
56. Afterword [Journals] [Kronos]
... generally and asks: "If the Velikovskian catastrophes occurred, why are there no contemporary graphic records of them?" As a novice in the field, Sagan should perceive that the great majority of ancient contemporary art is dominated by the theme of global catastrophes and celestial planetary deities in battle. In my lecture I referred to the Mayan, Olmec, and Toltec art- and whoever visits Yucatan knows that virtually no other theme exists in this art. No dynastic or military exploits, but battles between planetary deities, and sacrifices to them- almost to the exclusion of other themes. The cave man pictures animals in global conflict; serpents fighting planets are a frequent theme in cave and. ...
57. Velikovsky and Tangun [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... king who spent 9 years draining flood waters. Yu's placement at about 1500 B.C . could conceivably consolidate some of Velikovsky's other theses. So far, though, no Sino-Velikovskian school has emerged, although Wake Forest historian Cyclone Covey (1972) once suggested using Velikovsky's proposals to establish a link between Hsia and the origins of the Mesoamerican Olmec culture. It is interesting, however, that some radical non-Velikovskian revisionists have used Velikovsky's "halving/doubling" method of identification to support their contention that the ruling Japanese dynasty has a fourth-century A.D . Korean origin. In one scenario (Hong 1988), "Imperial Prince Homuda-wake," allegedly born A.D . ...

... as the Hall of the Dead, in which a massive cave-in has piled the floor high with fallen rocks and debris. Among and under some of these rocks one can still see the remains of human skeletons. All of these skeletons are covered with a stalagmite crust. These skeletons are not millions of years old. They belong to the Olmec period, which archaeologists have dated, through the same radiocarbon dating technique used in dating CO2 accumulation in stalactites, at 1200 B.C . The rate of growth of stalactites, however, has not only varied through the ages but continues to vary from one locality to another. In Haynes Cave, West Virginia, a wooden trough ...
