22. James E. Strickling's Origins [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1997:1 (Sep 1997) Home | Issue Contents James E. Strickling's Origins http://www.bookmasters.com/marktplc/books/00166.htm Origins: Today's Science, Tomorrow's Myth, a book by James E. Strickling. The core of the industrial world's twentieth-century world-view is Darwinism- as in Charles Darwin. No matter whether you're being entertained by Jurassic Park or being educated by National Geographic and Time-Life or fighting the school board over the use of a particular high school science textbook, Darwinism is the common denominator. Darwinism, as currently perceived, is charged by Strickling as being The Great Lie. Furthermore, ...
23. The Origin Of The Moon [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 2 No 3 (1994) Home | Issue Contents The Origin Of The Moon Charles Ginenthal The origin of the Moon has been an extremely controversial problem among astronomers and geophysicists for a long time. There are, at present, four major theories under consideration by members of the astrophysical community. Each of the four groups of advocates has been attempting to show that the evidence for its position is strongest and that the other concepts are fundamentally unfounded. In this contest of hypotheses, Velikovsky has interpreted the mythology and arrived at the conclusion that the Moon was captured recently by the Earth and set into its present orbit. In "Earth Without a Moon ...
24. The Dragon in China and Japan by M. W. VISSER [Books]
... same process took place in Japan, when Buddiusm, after having conquered Korea, in the sixth century of our era, reached Dai Nippon's shores. Before a, hundred years had elapsed the Japanese mind got imbued with foreign ideas, partly Chinese, partly Indian. To the mixture of these two elements a third one, consisting of the original Japanese conceptions, was added, and a very intricate complex was formed. Whoever studies the Japanese legends has the difficult task of analysing this complex into its parts. No mythical creature is more familiar to Far Eastern art and literature than the dragon. It is interesting to observe how in Japan three different kinds of dragons, originating from ...

26. Sagan's first problem: The ejection of Venus by Jupiter (Carl Sagan & Immanuel Velikovsky) [Books]
... R.A . Lyttleton, from his Man's View of the Universe, to the effect that Venus (and the other terrestrial planets) must have been born from Jupiter by disruption. In the Monthly Notices, of the Royal Astronomical Society for 1960, Lyttleton after pointing to insurmountable physical handicaps in both the nebular and tidal theory of the origin of the solar system, demonstrated mathematically the very process that I reconstructed from the annals of the past."6 What was W.H . McCrea's reason for concluding that the terrestrial planets-Mercury, Venus, Earth, Moon and Mars-could not be born between the Sun and Jupiter? The answer is gravitational law, which Sagan holds in ...

If most of the Moon's features are of meteoritic origin, including some of its mountain ranges (and it will be shown later that huge meteoritic impacts provide the forces necessary to build mountains), it is reasonable to believe that the Earth must have experienced cosmic bombardments at least as intense as those that occurred on our satellite. Our planet, nevertheless, does not present a landscape so ...
28. The Origin Of The Planetary System, Prologue Ch.1 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... From "Worlds in Collision" © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Origin Of The Planetary System All theories of the origin of the planetary system and the motive forces that sustain the motion of its members go back to the gravitational theory and the celestial mechanics of Newton. The sun attracts the planets, and if it were not for a second urge, they would fall into the sun; but each planet is impelled by its momentum to proceed in a direction away from the sun, and as a result, an orbit is formed. Similarly, a satellite or a moon is subject to an urge that drives it away from its primary, ...
29. Analysis Of Old World Maps [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... " (1 ) he contends that the longitude of the Oronteus Finaeus map of 1532 is the same as that of Ptolemy's World Map; the Papal Bull Inter Caetera of May 4, 1493; Robert Thorne's map of 1525; the Mercator World Map of 1538 and the Reimal Map. Therefore, since each of these maps correlates with the original draft of the Oronteus Finaeus map, showing the Prime Meridian of longitude, one can extrapolate from these agreements as to the time and place of the map's creators and place the original map maker in Mesopotamia of ancient historical time. By further extrapolation, Schwarz calculates to the Vernal Equinox and retrocalculates the precession of the North Pole back to ...
... at the very time it was gathering grass from polar pastures. There can be no questioning such canopy testimony. There is another kind of testimony that cannot be reasonably doubted, nor long excluded from the court of last resort. The whole earth records the fact that the ocean has deepened through the "ages". For uncounted time the original sea, it seems, occupied the whole surface of a mountainless world. The massed testimony is that it was a very shallow ocean then. This circumstance must be conceded by any one who ventures to tread the path of earth-mutations. Again and again the seas to a vast extent have been changed by a vast addition of waters, ...
