... the introduction of the civil calendar Mage takes the line that it was "radically new" and its introduction "was obviously a major (literally epochal) event with crucial religious and social implications". Nothing of the sort! The new calendar was but a simplification of the existing lunar calendar and running concurrently with it. All religious events ... determined by the lunar calendar and its averaged counterpart would be only a convenience in reckoning for scribes. Gradually the civil calendar would grow in importance and use, even for religion, but it could be as long as two centuries before the divergence between the lunar year, governed by the rising of Sirius, and its civil partner became apparent ...
182. The Velikovsky Affair [Books] [de Grazia books]
... by some of the most respected scientists of America and Britain, unbending in his person and in his allegiance to science and in refusing every opening for support from demagogic or religious quarters: these facts hardly disturbed the favourable reception granted him by a large public. That he is a charismatic figure is obvious: fourteen hundred people attended his talk ... Lustig, now Editor-in-Chief of a large, new encyclopedia-in-the-making at Princeton, New Jersey. He asked me to write for the encyclopedia the articles on Freedom, ' Freedom of Religion, ' and Freedom of Speech.

... the Jews must look for information relative to their own past and for the basis of their beliefs, which have set them apart as a distinct people, both racially and religiously. Certainly those who think that the Scriptures represent only a conflation of myths, legends, and traditions of highly limited value historically should be interested in a critical examination ... death, we may presume that he was taken on as coregent long before maturity, thus explaining, in part, why his greatest accomplishment was the introduction of a heretical religion for which he was hated by subsequent generations. No Sed Festival record is extant from this reign, and the king evidently died before 30 years of age or else ...

... pharaoh had a primary responsibility for the cosmic order. At the same time, at his death the resurrection of his soul in heaven was conceptualized astronomically. An ancient Egyptian religious text reads: Thou shalt appear in heaven, Thou shalt traverse the sky, Thou shalt be side by side with the gods of the stars. Perhaps no other ... is a copy and a glass window has been placed in one side-wall, the tiny cell still conveys directly and with some elegance the central role of observational astronomy in Egyptian religion and culture almost five-thousand years ago. As the divine authority on Earth, the pharaoh had a primary responsibility for the cosmic order. At the same time, at ...
185. The Heavenly Host [Books] [de Grazia books]
... good god, and malevolence and maleficence upon a bad god or devil, hoping that the one will outwit and outstruggle the other. Devils have invariably extruded from an animated religious setting, there being no way of exorcizing them from man's primordially established soul. In the Hebraic complex, god cannot commit evil; if a bad effect is deemed ... inspired, it is attributed to the devil. Some religions have merged the contradiction of good and evil into the same god, who holds different names for his given qualities and exercises benevolent or malevolent impulses for inscrutable reasons, or for "obvious" reasons, or for reasons not to be inquired about. The Greek gods were rather of ...
186. Sagan's Folly Part 1 [Journals] [Kronos]
... probably originated from the experiences of a group of people surviving a spectacular planetary event. "It seems doubtful that the other theories of the origin of religion, which see religious beliefs and practices beginning as a result of poetic story-telling, can withstand the rigorous methodology of investigation and interpretation Velikovsky utilizes in developing his thought. The burden of proof ... 1003-1004; Cp. F. Katz, The Ancient American Civilizations: 1972, pp. 16-17). And the words of Vine Deloria on myth and the origin of religion: "The conclusion that must be drawn is that religions most probably do not originate from the speculations of generations of poets, no matter how profound. In ancient ...

Since he was raised without the time-consuming liturgies of religion, religious routines were not a common means for stopping his time or feeling it. Sports, smoking, drinking, eating time.

188. The Apocalyptic Atlantis (The Atlantis Myth) [Books]
... the biblical passages in question have not until now been regarded as constituting a report of the loss of Atlantis. '" But although these passages have been made to serve religious purposes even a superficial analysis shows that they really contain no `religion' at all. On the contrary, they consist almost exclusively of mythological material, and their ... to the great cataclysm which caused the end of Atlantis is quite unmistakable. The biblical Atlantis myth is fully supported by the Greek report; its existence helps Plato's Atlantis myth to stand even more firmly. We do not know the source from which the biblical Atlantis material was derived, but it can be asserted with confidence that it was not ...

... of information upon which Dr. Velikovsky was able to draw, (from the New World Codices to the extensive geological records), is the same man whose philosophy and religious tenets became bankrupt, as Neitzche's madman proclaimed before the turn of the century. Although his announcement went unheeded, the same message assumed material form in the massive destruction ... familiar, scientific, cyclical world into a new landscape- precarious and fragile. But this is not a speculative exercise. If Velikovsky's suggestions prove true, all major world religions have arisen in response to this reality. This paper brings evidence from anthropology that the Hopi, for example, built their cosmology on the reality that the Earth has ...
