61. Forum Part Two [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of independent sections where the events are at least approximately synchronous, and it's a reasonable postulate that they are indeed synchronous and that the hypothesis demands a common ultimate cause." [1 ] In July 1993, the Society for Interdisciplinary Studies organised the Cambridge Conference with the explicit aim of documenting evidence that the Earth has suffered catastrophes of cosmic origin in historical times'. The SIS conference followed Immanuel Velikovsky's original idea that cosmic catastrophes had caused both the destruction of the Middle and Late Bronze Age civilisations and the emergence of the Iron Age cultures. Despite the fact that the gathering was an enjoyable event for all participants, its results appear to be less impressive, at least from ...
62. Did the Sumerians and the Akkadians Ever Exist? [Journals] [Aeon]
... the risks of pregnancy and childbirth. The reasons for the emergence of a society dominated by a priesthood, i.e ., the causes of the first stage of high culture after the Stone Age are to this day considered unknown. II Ca. 3000 BCE: Flood and destruction layers, drastic change of climate.Problems: The origin of the catastrophe is considered to be unknown. Riddles: Cuneiform inscriptions speak of a flood before kingship was brought down from heaven, and ascribe its cause to Inanna (Venus). III After ca. 3000 BCE: Beginnings of the Early Dynastic Period or the first "Sumerian" dynasties whose status as advanced culture is proved archaeologically ...
63. The Mythical History of the Comet Venus (Part I) [Journals] [Aeon]
... for these dominant motifs, the theorists must resort to a series of separate and unconnected conjectures. The model under discussion, however, implies that the actual history of the planet, though highly unusual, not only anticipates or "predicts" these themes, but consistency explains the very details which ad hoc conjectures overlook. In seeking out the original, concrete images embedded in myth and symbol, I have sought to define celestial forms once seen in the sky. From recurring mythical and artistic renderings of these forms, together with recurring planetary associations, one can deduce the placement of celestial bodies. If valid, this methodology should eventually provide many clues to our understanding of the physical ...
... worthy of study. FORMATION AT DIFFERENT TIMES In 1950 most scientists firmly believed that all the planets were formed in their present orbits; rnanv of them ridiculed Velikovsky for suggesting otherwise. However, bv 1960 W. H. McCrea, who at the time was President of the Roval Astronomical Society, published a theoretical argument that no planet could originally have formed from a solar nebula any closer to the Sun than the orbit of,Jupiter. 1 Later J. G. Hills attempted to show that no planet could initially have formed outside the orbit of' Saturn.2 Between the appearances of these papers, H. Alfven, who later received the Nobel Prize in physics, ...
65. Velikovsky and Historical Anti-Naturism [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. X No. 3 (Summer 1985) Home | Issue Contents Velikovsky and Historical Anti-Naturism Duane Vorhees The world is full of origin myths, and all are factually false. The world is full, also, of great traditional books tracing the history of man (but focused narrowly on the local group) from the age of mythical beginnings, through periods of increasing plausibility, to a time almost within memory, when the chronicles begin to carry the record, with a show of rational factuality, to the present. Furthermore, just as all primitive mythologies serve to validate the customs, systems of sentiments, and political aims of their respective local groups ...
66. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Two [Books]
... " So, Plutarch did indeed talk of the "domineering and compelling power" of Typhon- but he was talking about the destructive potential of the sun's heat, and not, as V would have us believe, "natural catastrophes in which the earth and the comet were involved"! I suppose it might be argued that Typhon was originally the Venus comet, but that by the time of Plutarch his mythological representation had diversified to include a multitude of natural evils. But the fact remains that the text of Plutarch contains no hint of this original' Typhon at all, so it is difficult to see how any of Plutarch can he counted as evidence in favour of that ...
