31. The Road To Saturn [Aeon Journal $]
... which these watery filaments were born that I, like others, found most illuminating. Velikovsky's scenario of the flood was this: Saturn and Jupiter had once been much closer to Earth. Saturn was a water planet. More than that, like Jupiter, it had once been a "dark" star. Through a near collision of the two, which took place somewhere between five and ten thousand years ago, Saturn erupted in nova-like brilliance. The water it ejected from its body took the form of two watery filaments which, seven days after the flare-up, hit the Earth and caused the deluge. The water, which fell on Earth in torrential rains, was warm and salty and resulted in more than doubling the Earth's hydrosphere. Jupiter reacted differently. It fissioned and expelled from itself the comet that was later to cause the catastrophe of the Exodus before turning into the planet we now call Venus. Bizarre as this scenario appeared at the time --and how tame it now looks when compared to what else was yet to come --it answered one major riddle which ...
32. Flood Legends: Their Hidden Perspectives [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... other means are responsible (e.g. a mountain top). In thirty-four stories only the flood is mentioned. In fourteen stories other upheavals accompany the flood (e.g. celestial events, trembling earth, fire). Of the thirty-two legends in which a family was saved: Eighteen describe survival in a boat (56 percent). Ten describe other means of survival (31 percent). Ten indicate a preservation of other seeds of life (31 percent). In twelve the family is forewarned (38 percent). In seven there are upheavals in addition to the flood (22 percent). Of the fifteen legends in which a remnant survived: Four describe survival in a boat (27 percent). Seven describe other means of survival (47 percent). None indicates a preservation of other seeds of life. In two the remnant is forewarned (13 percent). In nine there are upheavals in addition to the flood (60 percent). These results are tabulated to facilitate comparison: Means of Survival: Best/Other Means Other Seeds ...
33. Making Moonshine with Hard Science [Kronos $]
... matters? Tablet D. I have also been observing the moon-days from the opposite window of my house, as it sets in the bay. The new moon turned out to repeat its appearance 12 times plus a tenth less than 11 sun-days in the time it took the sun to touch back upon the tree. I subtracted the 10.9 days from 365.25, and got 354.35. To get an average month, I divided this by 12 and got 29.53 days. Suppose I distribute the 11 days among the months, giving half-days to seven and one and a half days to 5 months. I'd have a workable calendar! I shall do something later with that little lost time, maybe spread it out over the years. Some of my politician friends have become excited by the game and chipped in funds to hire a diligent research assistant to help with the sightings. The watchtower and astrological societies from here and there confirm that their instruments give the same readings. (I am glad that I entertained several of these chaps at Selena's tavern during the last Olympics. ...
34. Did Saturn Explode Twice? [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... places Saturn's "flare-up" at the so called dawn of creation which implies that Talbotts "sun of night" would have been an already-spent star. Since Cardona's theory is also well founded, it is time to ask the question: did Saturn explode twice? According to the Bible, Saturn definitely exploded twice. In Genesis 1:3 "God said let there be light and there was light. God saw the light was good." (Jerusalem Bible) In Genesis 7:10 "And it came to pass after seven days that the waters of the flood were on the Earth." (King James version) In Kronos V:I (pp. 6 and 7) Velikovsky points out that some words are missing here and suggests that the "seven days" were days of brilliant light. By way of corroboration he refers to the text of Isaiah 30:36: "The light of the Sun shall be sevenfold as the light of the seven days." The main difference between the works of Velikovsky and Talbott and the work ...

36. John Holbrook [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Possibly Saturn and Jupiter formed a binary system of dark stars; and/or the earth orbited Saturn rather than the sun. During this period, it never rained on earth; men were vegetarians; and dinosaurs still moved about the globe. The Age of Chronos ended somewhere between 9000 and 6000 B.C. Perturbed by the close approach of Jupiter, Saturn became a nova. It underwent atomic fission (or fusion?) and exploded. The terrestrial experience of this event commenced with the appearance of a brilliant light, which lasted seven days (? the light of the seven days ? to which Isaiah referred) and outshone the sun. Then the globe was deluged with clouds of warm and salty water which reached this planet in the company of two comets. The earth was shrouded in darkness, a product of the clouds of moisture arriving from Saturn and the clouds of volcanic debris erupting from the earth. Many species of terrestrial life perished; and the cosmic rays of the nova produced numerous mutations among those species which survived. The appearance of Saturn in ...
37. Message to Lady Astor [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... with whom she associates are Jew-baiters. In her innocence she decided that her thinning society is the American people. The truth is that anti-Semitism is on the ebb in America. And the cause is Israel. The noble and honest stand of the Jews in the United Nations in defense of their human rights has brought to their side most of the nations and the overwhelming majority of Americans. Their courageous fight in Palestine has evoked a spontaneous feeling of admiration among all from the bottom to the top of American people.*** Seven hundred thousand Israelis, constituting a two-weeks ? old state amid the vast Arab area of the Middle East, fight against odds in numbers and odds in weapons with unsurpassed courage and an unbroken faith. There are no Israeli refugees from Palestine. There are no draft dodgers in the nation. There are no deserters from the field of the battle. These people fight with small arms against fieldguns; they go afoot against tanks; and when British fliers in Egyptian bombers bomb the Israeli capital, children bask in the sun on the ...
38. The Mosaic Calendar and the Sabbath [Aeon Journal $]
... 16 must never fall on a regular Sabbath day as all are designated perpetual workdays. (8) One Sabbath each year to be extended to cover 48 hours, i. e. two days, and shall always fall on Sivan 4th and 5th (9) There must be six working days between Sabbaths. (10) Each special feast day to align with a regular Sabbath day. Reference to the Old Testament produces some interesting dating information. For instance, it is possible to identify twenty-one Sabbath days that are equally spaced seven days apart. All the long gaps between any of our twenty-one identified Sabbaths are divisible by seven. Now neither of these fortuitous cycles are necessarily conclusive. It is possible to assume a twin cycle of seven days each-- one cycle on the seventh day for the regular Sabbaths, and a second cycle on some other day catering to the Ceremonial Sabbaths. However, Abib 1, which is not a special feast day, falls on the same seven-day cycle as the alleged Ceremonial Sabbaths, thereby giving emphasis to the absolute ...
39. In the Beginning -- A Review [The Velikovskian $]
... can see the foregoing periods through the veil of the catastrophes; dimmer and dimmer is the light behind every veil, till our eye can distinguish no more behind the veil that hangs over the period when the Earth was moonless though already inhabited by human life. We do not know the beginning; we can only enter the theater at what may have been the third or fourth act. Velikovsky begins with Hebrew cosmology to claim that, prior to Genesis, the Earth underwent earlier catastrophes and that, within human memory, there were seven such creations. These were "sun ages" to be identified with the "Moon, Saturn, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Mars" in that order, or are more appropriately "planet ages." He discussed these ages in Worlds in Collision as "The World Ages" and "The Sun Ages." Hence, his view is that each of the seven planets affected the Earth at some time in the remote past. As a support for this view beyond legendary religious and astrological texts, Velikovsky points to ...
40. Deification of the Planets [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... , is already in our hands. The planet Venus was deified because of its dramatic appearance and because of the havoc it brought to the world, as described in Worlds in Collision. I illuminated also the events which made Mars a feared god. Divine qualities were ascribed to the other planets because of the catastrophes they wrought in earlier ages. In the Persian holy books it is said that ? on the planets depends the existence or non-existence of the world wherefore are they especially to be venerated.? (10) ? The seven planets rule the universe,? says a Nabatean inscription. (11) The Greeks and Romans believed that ? everything is, in fact, subject to the changes brought about by the revolutions of the stars.? (12) ? The celestial orbs by their combined movements are the authors of all that was, and is, and is to come.? According to ancient Hebrew traditions, ? there are seven archangels, each of whom is associated with a planet.? (13) ? The seven archangels were ...
