33. Puzzles of Prehistory [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... During the past century, this split has widened to chasm-like proportions. Under the influence of uniformitarian theory, the scientific picture of our past as one of historic progress and prehistoric evolution has become incompatible with the picture, provided by the mythologies of every continent, of a human past divisible into the principal periods- a relatively changeless Golden Age, ...

... importance for the rival theories. One of these problems is that of the nature of post-glacial environmental changes-which I recently discussed briefly (1 ) --and another embraces the relics of prehistoric astronomical activity found in Britain, on which much detailed work has been done (2 ).

... 1 ) In this projected series of articles, it will be capitalized and used as the proper name of a star-like planet which I assume to have orbited our Sun in prehistoric times and to have been orbited in turn by our Earth. (Because the precise relation of this star-like body to any or all of the larger, or Jovian ... literature, meaning literature which is produced only as a result of catastrophic experiences. Taking our lead from the implied primevality of protoliterature, we might also define myth as popular prehistory, opposing it to scholarly prehistory of the sort taught by and to archeologists. If so, we should probably make it clear that whatever is prehistoric is, by ...

Yet religions in which the Sun or Moon ... for global disasters in prehistoric and historic times. After Velikovsky, recent research in geology, archaeology and related disciplines has shown that there were indeed many catastrophic events in recent prehistory.
