31. The Nature and Origin of Comets and the Evolution of Celestial Bodies (Part II) [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. IX No. 3 (Summer 1984) Home | Issue Contents The Nature and Origin of Comets and the Evolution of Celestial Bodies (Part II)J. M. McCanney Copyright (c ) 1981 & 1984 by J. M. McCanney PREFACE TO PART II Part I (KRONOS IX:1 , Fall 1983, pp. 17-39) presented critiques of the ice ball comet model (IBCM) and nebular collapse theory of the origin of the solar system (OSS) and argued that these "accepted" theories fall short of explaining numerous observed phenomena. Part I also introduced a new theory for comet behavior and solar system evolution based on ...
32. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Three [Books]
... . ' Finally, a saviour is foretold who shall set Egypt to rights and build the Wall of the Prince' to keep the Asiatics from invading Egypt. The reference to this wall enables us to identify this saviour with Amenemhet I, the first ruler of the XIIth Dynasty, to whose reign, unless we assume an interpolation, the original of our composition is doubtless to be dated." (CAH p.344- 5.) The upheaval of 1116B, therefore, like that of Ipuwer's "Admonitions" (see section 5) seems to be political rather than cosmic, and my criticisms of V's use of 1116B are very similar to my criticisms of his use ...
33. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Six [Books]
... Lao ran dry. The barbarians invaded the Wed valley." This does not differ significantly from V's translation of the same on WIC p.247: "At this time the two suns were seen to battle in the sky. Unusual movements agitated the five planets. A part of Mount T'aichan fell down." Now here is the original French version, with a little of Loung- peng and Kounn- ou thrown in to show how casually V's bit is mentioned: "L'empereur ne pratant aucune attention a ces paroles, Loung- peng resta detent devant lui, fier et impassable. L'enpereux irritb de cc qu'il ne seratirait pas, lefit nettre a mort.- ) ...
34. The Bible Myth : The African Origins Of The Jewish People by Gary Greenberg (Book review) [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... CONTENTS From: The Velikovskian Vol. V, No. 1 THE BIBLE MYTH : THE AFRICAN ORIGINS OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE Secaucus, N.J . : Citadel Press, 1996. 308 Pages By: Gary Greenberg Reviewed by: Lynn E. Rose The title and subtitle of this book are somewhat broader than the content. For Greenberg does not reject all of the Bible as myth, only the earlier portions of Biblical history. Often, Greenberg treats even the origin accounts more as garbling or transmogrifications than as fabrications. Thus, it is significant that he does not deny that there was an Exodus, that there was a Moses, that there was a David, ...
35. The Great Father [Books]
... ruler of heaven. But paradoxically, they also declare that he resided on earth as a great king. He was the father both of gods and men. This dual character of the great father has been the subject of a centuries-long, but unresolved debate. Was he a living ancestor subsequently exaggerated into a cosmic divinity? Or was he originally a celestial god whom later myths reduced to human proportions? For an explanation of the great father researchers look to such varied powers as the solar orb, an esteemed tribal chief, or an abstract "vegetation cycle." Almost uniformly ignored is the connection of the primordial man-god with the actual planet Saturn- even though it is precisely ...
36. From Myth to a Physical Model [Journals] [Aeon]
... the natural order today. The logical focus is the human experience as recorded on papyrus, on clay, and on stone. Through comparative analysis and cross-referencing, one must seek out the observed patterns, for it is these patterns that provide the foundation of a systematic inquiry. Confronting Our Belief Systems If the well-documented, recurring mythical themes actually originated in a different celestial order, then a revolution in science and in our understanding of the past is inevitable. For catastrophists in the Velikovskian tradition, it is receptivity to the veiled messages of myth that provides a common ground for discussion. Without that receptivity to myth, what do we talk about? If you are considering venturing into ...
37. The Mixtec Tree of Origin [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:1 (Nov 1997) Home | Issue Contents The Mixtec Tree of Origin Ken Moss I was catching up on my reading one rainy afternoon (a not uncommon occurence in Vancouver) when I picked up one of Victor von Hagen's old accounts of Central American Indian civilizations. [1 ] Although his work is now somewhat dated, von Hagen remains an entertaining as well as an informative chronicler. In discussing various pre-Aztec cultures, von Hagen presents a diagram [2 ] that instantly grabbed my attention. It portrays a somewhat T-shaped structure that is broad at the base with a naked man emerging from a cleft at the top were the stem meets the ...
38. Mother Goddess and Warrior-Hero (Part One) [Journals] [Aeon]
... Sep 1988) Home | Issue Contents Mother Goddess and Warrior-Hero (Part One)David Talbott The necessary emphasis on the planet Saturn in much of the prior discussion of the polar configuration has perhaps created a false impression that must now be corrected. Because the myths present Saturn as the "first father"- the central sun and creator who originally stood "alone" in the sky- that planet is the logical focus of any attempt to present the configuration. At the same time this can be misleading, by suggesting that the other planetary gods have only minor roles, which is not the case at all. With the growing speculation on physical models of the polar configuration, ...

... 63 time the bottom of the ocean, throwing it up in mountains and hills on the primitive valleys and plains of the continent.* A fifth conceives the various fragments of which the surface of the earth is composed to have fallen successively from heaven, in the manner ofmeteoric stones, and alleges that they still retain the marks of their origin in the unknown species of animals whose exuviae they contain.t By a sixth, the globe is supposed to be hollow, and to contain in its cavity a nucleus of loadstone, which is dragged from one pole of the earth to the other by the attraction of comets, changing the centre of gravity, and consequently hurrying the ...
