81. A CRITICAL RE-APPRAISAL OF THE BOOK OF GENESIS [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... . It is not different for difference's sake: the writers are simply convinced that a synthesis of Wiseman's and Yahuda's brilliant ideas succeeds in unravelling the "problem" of the book of Genesis. This, we must add, is not a problem inherent in Genesis itself, but one created by the Documentary Hypothesis - that method of form criticism originating, it seems, with the Frenchman, Jean Astruc (d .1766), and later elaborated by Biblical critics such as Graf (d .1869) and Julius Wellhausen (d .1918). Compared to the Graf-Wellhausen method, the conclusions of which pre-date practically all the major archaeological discoveries of the past 100 years[1 ...
82. Indra and Brhaspati (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... the Vedas that in none of the many passages cited by Ashton did I find Indra and Brhaspati treated as a single deity. Thus Hymn 45 (Book VI) of the Atharva Veda(4 ) reads (in R.T .H . Griffith's translation): "Indra and Brahmanaspati! " (I do not have the Sanskrit original before me; but I assume that it uses two separate vocatives, corresponding more closely to Griffith's than to Bloomfield's translation of the passage concerned; cf. note added to Reference 4, in support of the same argument.) Note also that in Rg Veda VII.6 .8 (corresponding to VII.97 in the alternative ...

85. The Origin Of Craters On The Moon And Large Lunar Boulders [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 3 No 1 (1997) Home | Issue Contents The Origin Of Craters On The Moon And Large Lunar Boulders Charles Ginenthal The origin of craters on the Moon is presently accepted, by the majority of geophysicists and astronomers, to be the products of impacting bodies. D. E. Gault, et al., in 1975 stated that: "It is now firmly established that impact cratering has been a geologic process of primary significance in the evolution of all the terrestrial planets .. . and it is clear that a thorough understanding of cratering processes and formation is essential for gaining further insight into the early history and subsequent development of all the ...
86. Sagan's fifth problem: Chemistry & biology of the terrestrial planets (Carl Sagan & Immanuel Velikovsky) [Books]

From: Carl Sagan & Immanuel Velikovsky by Charles Ginenthal CD Home | Contents Contents Part I An Improbable Tale The Historical Evidence Velikovsky's theory Part II Sagan's Problems First Second Third Fourth Fifth Sixth Seventh Eight Nine Ten Problems Appendices Conclusion Sagan's fifth problem: Chemistry & biology of the terrestrial planets The origin of atmospheric oxygen Sagan states, "Velikovsky's thesis has some peculiar biological and chemical consequences, which are compounded by some straightforward confusions of simple matters. He seems not to know (p .16) that oxygen is produced by green-plant photosynthesis on the Earth."1 Let us, therefore, examine p.16 of Worlds in Collision to see just what Velikovsky did say. ...

... not make jumps-natura non facit saltum.1 De Vries showed that variations are in the nature of jumps, and from this he developed the mutation theory of evolution. De Vries, while working on his theory, was as yet unaware of Gregor Mendel's investigations in genetics, already published as a paper in 1865, only six years after The Origin of Species. Mendel's work, unknown to Darwin and his followers in the nineteenth century, was rediscovered by De Vries and independently by E. Tschermak and K. Correns in 1900, the same year that De Vries wrote down his theory of mutations. By carefully observing crossings between varieties of the garden pea and counting the strains through ...
88. Scientists support Velikovsky [Journals] [SIS Review]
... possibility of the occurrence of the major events described by Velikovsky. These papers were written by recognized scientists who were not necessarily attempting to support Velikovsky. That a qualitative discussion is presented by one investigator and this model is then later supported quantitatively by others is not unprecedented. Laplace offered, without any mathematical development, his nebular model of the origin of the solar system. (1 ) Articles in the scientific literature indicate that major changes could have occurred in the order and composition of the original solar system. Collisions have played an important role in some of these changes. In 1950, McCrea (2 ), who was then president of the Royal Astronomical Society, proposed that ...

From: Pensée Vol. 4 No 4: (Fall 1974) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered IX" Home | Issue Contents Myth and the Origin of Religion Vine Deloria, Jr.MYTH AS HISTORY Mr. Deloria, the author of Custer Died for Your Sins and God is Red, was formerly the Executive Director of the National Congress of American Indians. He attended Iowa State University and Lutheran School of Theology (Illinois), and is a practicing lawyer. If there were gigantic planetary catastrophes in former times, how should they have been described in order to receive credulous consideration by men several thousand years later? What format should the ancients have used so that we could ...
90. Venus in Ancient Myth and Language [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon I:1 (Jan 1988) Home | Issue Contents Venus in Ancient Myth and Language Ev Cochrane In this study we will begin a survey of the various Indo-European languages with a view towards reconstructing the original significance of certain traditions associated with the Latin goddess Venus. As such, this study should be seen as forming a supplement to the researches of David Talbott and myself on the mythology surrounding Venus, where it was argued that the cult of the celebrated Mother Goddess can hardly be separated from the recent history of the planet Venus. It is a curious fact, one little noticed by the scholarly community as a whole, that the vast majority of the ...
