181. Venus, Mars ... and Saturn [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1998:2 (Mar 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents Venus, Mars... and Saturn by Ev Cochrane Ev Cochrane is the publisher of Aeon. He is the author of Martian Metamorphoses: The Planet Mars in Ancient Myth and Religion as well as the forthcoming The Many Faces of Venus. Summary Velikovsky's book The Age of Saturn has never been published but researchers in the USA have continued to investigate the role of Saturn in mythology and history. This article presents a summary of their ideas, which suggest that the ringed planet was a major influence on Earth in the past. As we near the end of the millennium, a period traditionally associated with apocalyptic fears and cometary disaster, the time seems ripe for reconsidering the evidence as to the nature of the agents responsible for recent cataclysms and the concomitant genesis of ancient myth: were comets, or planets with comet-like characteristics, the principal culprits? Some SIS members appear inclined to abandon their roots in Velikovskian catastrophism in favour of a comet-based model, influenced by ...
182. The Father of the Gods? [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 3 No 2 (Oct 1980) Home¦ Issue Contents The Father of the Gods? by Martin Sieff Some notes on the history of the Solar System In "The Primordial Light?" it was suggested that the Earth may have orbited as a satellite of Saturn within human memory, and that conditions then observed may have been retained in the mythologies of the peoples. Indeed, the evidence was presented to argue that this is the only viable interpretation to the material when analysed by the methodology of Dr. Velikovsky (1). Actually, there is considerable "hard" astrophysical evidence to support the hypothesis that the Solar System was once a Sun-Saturn Binary(2). Mullen (3) quoted Velikovsky's opinion that Saturn once went through a short nova-like phase as a result of disruption by a near contact with Jupiter. This was the basis for Velikovsky's successful advance prediction that Saturn, having undergone nova, would now be found to be emitting low-energy radiations (4). Velikovsky believes that before its initial contact with Jupiter ...
183. The Afar Triangle As the Nether Reaches of Eden and Babel [Aeon Journal $]
... the Afar Triangle to the light of day. Immanuel Velikovsky's identification of "Aden" and Eden has been widely known among his supporters for some time, though his short written comments on the location of Eden have long remained unpublished. (Velikovsky was presumably referring the the region in which the city of Aden is located, not just to the city itself.) In my paper, "Variations on a Theme of Philolaos" (1), I made use of some of Velikovsky's ideas on the golden age, Eden, Saturn, and several other related matters. Velikovsky had permitted me to state these unpublished views of his, but he did not endorse my conclusions. Indeed, he repeatedly described my paper as "speculation" that went considerably farther than he was willing to go. It should be stressed, however, that at no time did Velikovsky explicitly reject any of my conclusions. In that paper I had argued that during the golden age Earth was in orbit around Saturn, with the same face turned toward Saturn; that the pole of ...
184. The Electric Saturnian System [Aeon Journal $]
... . But with Earth being nestled within Saturn's atmospheric envelope, would its inhabitants have been able to breathe the constituents of that atmosphere? Thornhill: We are presently nestled in the Sun's atmosphere without it causing us any problems. Proto-Saturn's envelope would have been more dense but still a good approximation to a vacuum. The constituents of the atmospheres of brown dwarf stars, so far as they have been determined, seem to include water, and other, molecules which are helpful to life. That would explain the icy moons of Jupiter and Saturn as well as the reports of water misting down onto Earth when it was still a satellite of proto-Saturn. Even Jupiter's moon, Io, I believe, was originally covered with ice. The sulfurous deposits on that moon are a result of continuous electric discharges from Jupiter, which convert the oxygen in the ice to sulfur. We see another example on the next closest moon to Jupiter, Europa, where Jupiter's thunderbolts have etched red furrows across its icy surface in the recent past. AEON: You stated that, in your ...
185. Ashton's Bedrock of Myth (Forum) [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon VI:6 (Dec 2001) Home¦ Issue Contents Forum Ashton's Bedrock of Myth An aspect of the Polar Configuration according to Ashton C. Leroy Ellenberger From St. Louis, Missouri, writes: An aspect of the Polar Configuration according to Ashton Most surviving Velikovskians now see Worlds in Collision and Ages in Chaos as seriously flawed, if not completely wrong. Many, instead, propose that the real interplanetary catastrophes occurred earlier than Velikovsky thought. Adopting the "Saturn theory," inspired by an unpublished Velikovsky manuscript alluding to the ancient Sun-Saturn polarity, [105 they claim that, during the "Golden Age" ruled by Saturn/Kronos, Earth was part of a "polar configuration" that orbited the Sun near Earth's present location, so that a nearby Saturn loomed continuously over the north pole as a rotating crescent. Situated between Earth and Saturn were Venus and Mars with Jupiter hidden behind Saturn! Saturnists believe (1) that mythology preserves the record of that alignment and transition to the present Solar System by 2000 BCE, and ...
186. Discussion Comments From the Floor [Aeon Journal $]
... degrees per million years (Earth Planet. Sci Let., 55, 1981, p. 37) which is equivalent to 0.43 seconds of arc per thousand years. I beg to differ with Hall, but if Earth orbited a proto-Saturn of 10 Jovian masses at 1,600,000 km, then its orbital period would not have been close to 28 days. I'd say he was off by a factor of seven on the high side. Also, I seriously doubt he has a valid physical process for cooling off his Saturn from 1350 K to its present temperature in the requisite time in light of my previous criticism of a similar suggestion by Forshufvud in KRONOS XI: 1, p. 106. Finally, Hall's notion, borrowed uncritically from Velikovsky, that the Flood resulted from hydrogen reacting with oxygen in the upper atmosphere to form water cannot be taken seriously. For one thing, it is hard to imagine us having enough oxygen initially to produce a Flood's worth of water, considering that the present oxygen would only produce about 3.5 meters of water ...
187. Thoth Vol. III, No. 14 Nov 1, 1999 [Thoth Website]
... But the ideas of gravity and heliocentrism together were more powerful than the sum of their separate explanatory powers. From the combined viewpoint, the planets didn't just move around the sum, they "fell" around the sun. The mathematics of falling could be developed into equations of motion for orbits. And those equations could not only describe the motions of the planets but could invent additional motions. Suddenly, people could build spaceships that would "follow the math" and take them to the planets. Now it's happening again. The Saturn Theory and the Electric Universe each explain larger bodies of data with greater unity than previously-accepted ideas in their fields. The Electric Universe provides an integrated explanation for the growing mass of astronomical observations that are becoming a morass of contradictory ad hoc confusions. Craters, rilles, parallel grooves, domes, arachnoids, neutrino fluxes, sunspot characteristics, coronal heat, nebulous filaments, pulsars, galactic jets, quantized redshifts... each has its separate and ill-fitting conventional excuse. But all can be explained as aspects of the single phenomenon ...
188. The Milky Way [Aeon Journal $]
... Only by the most tortured reasoning is it possible to account for this theme given the relationship which currently pertains between the Sun and Milky Way, and even then there is no logical explanation why peoples would view the Milky Way as a soul-ladder leading to the Sun. (82) Or why departed souls or fame-seeking heroes should encounter celestial bulls along the way. In short, Krupp's anal-ysis is not only inadequate, it is entirely wrongheaded. Krupp not only has the wrong Milky Way, he's got the wrong Sun as well! Saturn Kronos-- whom Plato called Helios. In his commentary upon the "Heavenly Way" as found in the Egyptian Pyramid Texts, Mercer offered the following observation: "The word msk.t is clearly 'way,' or 'road'...and the term shd.w, occurring often in the PT as the name of stars (e.g. 449b, 658e, 1575b, 2001a, etc.), is here as in other places determined by the sign for heaven (e.g. 727a, 907b, 1474c); and as occupying ...

Declares Jupiter-Marduk in a Babylonian epic poem: "When I stood up from my seat and let the flood break in, then the judgement of Earth and Heaven went out of joint.... The gods, which trembled, the stars of heaven-their position changed, and I did not bring them back." [2 The Age of Saturnia ended in the Biblical Deluge. The Age of Jovea (5700 to 4400 B. P.) began. The planets Saturn, Neptune [3, Uranus [4, and perhaps a "Planet 'X'" (suspected to exist but not yet discovered) [5 had receded. They were retired gods; mythologists have applied this concept of deus otiosus to Saturn and Uranus. Mankind might have seen all of them recede into the farther reaches of the ...
