71. Vox POPVLI [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon V:1 (Nov 1997) Home¦ Issue Contents Vox Popvli Some Thoughts on the Saturnian Sun and Polar Column Mike Twose, from Toronto, Ontario, writes: In reading Ev Cochrane's interesting article on the Milky Way, [1 it occurred to me that no one, that I know of, has delved into the conditions that must have influenced the gases and dust that must have stretched between Earth and Saturn during the time of the Saturnian configuration. [2 In the beginning, the difference in electrical charge between the two planets must have been quite large. The flow of current through the ionized gases would have been enough to create a magnetic field around them. This magnetic field would have interacted with the magnetic fields of Saturn, Earth, and the Sun. The interaction would have produced movement, perhaps of a sinuous appearance, resulting in representations of Saturn on top of a snake. After some time, the charges would have decreased and the gases in the column would have taken on the appearance of a glow discharge ...
72. The Lord Of Light [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon III:4 (Dec 1993) Home¦ Issue Contents The Lord Of Light Lewis M. Greenberg See note* below. Allah is the light of the heavens and earth. His light is a niche in which is a lamp, and the lamp is as in a glass, the glass is as though it were a glittering star.-- Qoran 24:35. Saturn was the only god who was said to have been born; who lived on Earth among men, preaching and teaching; who died; was buried; who descended to the netherworld; who rose from the dead and eventually ascended into heaven. If the tale sounds familiar, you now know its origin.-- Dwardu Cardona, San Jose, August 1980. Introduction Among other things, Worlds in Collision presented-- within the framework of a cosmic catastrophic scenario-- a compelling case for a common astral origin of the world's religions. Later authors-- notably Cardona, Greenberg, Sizemore, D. Talbott, Cochrane, Maccoby, Tresman ...
73. Some Religious Themes in the Light of Velikovsky et alia [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... . A thousand thousand waited on him, ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him. A court was held and the books were opened."- Daniel 7:9-10 (Jerusalem Bible) The studies I have made of the works of Velikovsky and Talbott have led me to some radical conclusions concerning the origins of the Jewish faith: of these the most astounding is that it was originally a Sun-Saturn cult. Many readers will be aware of the growing consensus of opinion among Velikovskians that the only bodies visible in pre-Deluge times were Saturn and the Sun, and that the latter was regarded by the ancients as a manifestation of the former.(1) I propose therefore that the ancients of Eden must have been monotheists. I maintain that both Judaism and Christianity were direct continuations of this cult. I also believe that all other major world religions are a protestantation of this ancient cult which was once the only universal religion. I base this conclusion on the similarities among the myths which are common to all faiths: the Tree of Life, the Rivers, ...
74. Festivals of Light [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Festivals of Light The Deluge and the seven days of brilliant light immediately preceding it were a universal experience, and they left indelible memories. Many of the religious rites and observances of all creeds go back to these events of the past in which the celestial gods Saturn and Jupiter were the main participants. Among the most ancient of all such observances were festivals of light of seven days ? duration, held in honor of Saturn. The ? seven days of light ? just before the Deluge overwhelmed the Earth are recreated in these feasts. (1) Herodotos describes a nocturnal light festival held each year at Sais in commemoration of Osiris ? death and resurrection. It was called the Feast of Lamps: There is one night on which the inhabitants all burn a multitude of lights in the open air round their houses.... These burn the whole night.... The Egyptians who are absent from the festival observe the night of the sacrifice, no less than the rest, by a general lighting of lamps; so that the illumination is ...
75. Odin [Kronos $]
... the Hindu Shiva as the same Jupiter/Zeus.(8) In more than one of my previous writings, I have stressed the point that just because a deity is presented in mythology as a wielder of the thunderbolt, he is not necessarily to be identified as Jupiter. Granted that Jupiter seems to have been the prime wielder of thunderbolts,(9) other planetary deities were also vigorous in their thunderings. In an earlier paper I have shown that the attributes, characteristics, and mythology of Shiva properly fit the planet Saturn and not Jupiter.(10) Velikovsky's identification of Odin/Woden as Jupiter cannot, therefore, be accepted merely on the evidence of the thunderbolt. To the Romans, Mercury was the god of trade. His attributes were the caduceus, the winged sandals and/or helmet, and the purse.(11) None of these attributes were shared by Odin. The mythologies of Odin/Woden and Hermes/Mercury have absolutely nothing in common. Why, then, did the Romans identify one with the other? ...
76. Ninurta [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1997:1 (Sep 1997) Home¦ Issue Contents Ninurta From: Peter James <100735.1765@CompuServe.com> Date: 25 Mar 97 02:01:29 EST When I heard of the identifying of Ninurta (largely) with Mars, rather than Saturn (which I took to be already well established), I was somewhat disappointed. Some of the strongest evidence for the case that Saturn appeared to be very different in the past was presented in Dwardu's AEON (II:5) article "Intimations of an Alien Sky". I was impressed by some of the arguments that Ninurta and his variant Ningirsu were once seen, or remembered, as brilliant objects in the sky. Those epithets might apply to Mars as well, but I would be cautious of ditching what seem (to an outsider) like good arguments about the sunlike appearance of Saturn. Otherwise, we have those Babylonian texts which do associate Ninurta with Saturn. Ev says that some texts associate him with other planets, including Mercury. I suppose one ...
77. A Proposed Model for the Polar Configuration [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon III:3 (Oct 1993) Home¦ Issue Contents A Proposed Model for the Polar Configuration Robert Grubaugh The polar configuration as conceived by Talbott, Cochrane, and Cardona from the mythology, art, and language of the ancients requires that Saturn be the largest visible object in the sky, and hence much closer to the Earth than at present. The thesis also requires that Saturn occupy a fixed position in the northern sky and that it have a lighted face which appears as a crescent that rotates as the Earth rotates about its own axis. The planets Venus and Mars are also envisaged as having occupied a fixed position in a direct line between Earth and Saturn. The planet Jupiter is not visible. The fixed alignment can be shown to be possible if Saturn, Venus, Mars and Earth are satellites of Jupiter and rotate about Jupiter in a line synchronous with Jupiter's orbit around the sun. The polar orientation is possible if Earth's rotational axis is along this line. In order to supply the crescent appearance the line is assumed to make ...
78. Guidelines To The Saturn Myth [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. X No. 3 (Summer 1985) Home¦ Issue Contents Guidelines To The Saturn Myth (Part One of a Series) David Talbott BACKGROUND Recent issues of KRONOS have included several papers dealing with Saturn and the Golden Age. Though the resulting portrait may not be entirely clear, readers surely have noticed certain overlapping images. The portrait has also been clouded somewhat by disagreements on some fundamental issues, several of them concerning my proposed "polar configuration". In 1972, while serving as publisher of Pensee, I presented to several of the journal's associates an unusual idea, one which (to the best of my knowledge) had no theoretical precedent. I suggested the prehistoric existence of an apparition towering above the Earth and centered upon an ancient sun god of the north celestial Pole. This old god, I believed, was the planet Saturn, the now-distant body which Velikovsky- for one- had claimed once ruled the Golden Age. Specifically, the suggested configuration involved a number of separate components, several of them planets in ...
79. The Sun Of Night [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. III No. 1 (Fall 1977) Home¦ Issue Contents The Sun Of Night Dwardu Cardona Copyright© 1977 by Dwardu Cardona, Lewis M. Greenberg, and Warner B. Sizemore. 1. Planets or Stars? As these words are being written, the U. S. space-probe Pioneer II is even now on its way to a rendezvous with Saturn which, barring any unforeseeable accidents, is due to occur in September of 1979, two years hence. The data that will be collected and relayed to Earth by this probe will therefore be crucial to the astronomical content of this article. But already there are indications that we, as well as Velikovsky, are on the right track. Writing in the 1976 Yearbook of Science and the Future, Henry T. Simmons states: "Like those of Jupiter, the cloud tops of Saturn occur in alternating light and dark bands, and it also appears that the planet emits more heat than it receives from the Sun. Scientists recently found that Saturn generates bursts in the ...
... From: Kronos Vol. VI No. 3 (Spring 1981) Home¦ Issue Contents Electromagnetic-Gravitational Coupling Phenomena in the Saturn Ring System Michael E. Brandt and Michael Simon Bodner I. INTRODUCTION The Voyager I encounter with Saturn provided space scientists with more data about the gas giant than that which was known for three hundred years.(1) Before the Voyager I mission, two main theories dominated scientific thought concerning the origin of the ring system. One theory held that a moon or other small body wandered too near to Saturn's surface, causing it to be ripped apart by tidal forces. This material consolidated into a large thin disk having bands and gaps. Four distinct bands were observed to exist: A, B, C, and D (in order of decreasing distance from Saturn). The largest gap (the Cassini Division) was believed to be about 3,000 miles wide and was located between the A and B rings. The rings, consisting of ice particles ranging in size from fine dust to large boulders, lie within a ...
