21. "Stonehenge Viewpoint?" Biased View (Forum) [Kronos $]
... ... I did, however, make clear to Forrest the reason behind this decision... "The problem with Forrest's second reply was not so much due to its length. KRONOS has published, as it undoubtedly will again publish, even longer critiques. [See, for example, the recent criticism by William White which, starting in XI:1, will appear in three installments.But for Forrest to ramble on for 10 pages of single-spaced type- approximately 8400 words- with lengthy interjections about his beloved Shakespeare and the manner in which he came to pen his opus magnum is to blow a horn in a meandering tune in discord with the background music. No journal has space to waste on such banality. It is not that Forrest did not raise any valid points- although they are all answerable. But he buried them in a heap of triteness. "When Forrest objected, I wrote again, on July 15, and condescended to appeal his cause with my Editor-in-Chief, Professor Greenberg. [Here follow six short paragraphs concerning ...
22. Focus [SIS C&C Review $]
... it wasn't until 1972, I think, that I saw the book in a department store and- by one chance in a hundred- instead of walking by I bought it. "I took it home, and started to read it; and the reaction was instantaneously positive: I was tremendously excited. I found that I would come across an idea on a certain page and suddenly all kinds of connections would start coming into my head. "Pretty soon, I found that as I was preparing lectures (my specialty is Shakespeare) I suddenly began to see things that I thought had some bearing on Velikovsky. I didn't know what to make of these; but I made notes; and after a while I would have words underlined and notes: "Is this a catastrophic memory?" and suddenly I began to see patterns in things; and it struck me that what I was seeing in Shakespeare were possibly effects of what Velikovsky says happened. Eventually I began to find that reading Velikovsky simply shed an entirely new, additional or deeper light on ...
23. Getting it Together [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... discussed in a dialectical manner, contrasting humanities and sciences, specialisation and overview, search and research etc. In each case the writer suggests a transdisciplinary way of combining these apparent opposites or at least bridging the gap. What is required is a modern equivalent of renaissance man who can both specialise and see beyond the end of his/her nose. Anomalies are pointed out in scholarship as being those data which do not fit into the general paradigms of knowledge. Examples are: quasars, water, extinctions, speciations, UFOs, Shakespeare, yetis, fire-walking, alchemy and astrology. You need to read the book to know what is anomalous about each of these. But in one way or another they are a challenge to scholarly understanding and therefore subjects for further study or at least curiosity. The 3rd chapter is perhaps the most significant for SIS readers, mentioning as it does Velikovsky, Heinsohn, Sheldrake, Elaine Morgan and others. Again in his contrasting mode Roger Wescott discusses myth and science, evolution and revolution, Darwinism and creationism, quantalism and uniformism ...
24. Were the british megaliths built as scientific instruments? [Science Frontiers Website]
... the skeptics. He feels that the megalithic sites are impressive and intriguing but not the work of mental giants. After all, Ruggles says, 72 points of the compass have some lunar significance. Almost any circle of stones built for simple ritual purposes would have some significant lunar alignments! (Ruggles, Clive; "Prehistoric Astronomy: How Far Did It Go?" New Scientist, 90: 750, 1981.) Comment. The kind of statistical argument reminds one of those monkeys who will eventually type out the works of Shakespeare. Presumably, the same monkeys could construct Stonehenge, given enough time. Reference. Our Handbook Ancient Man contains abundant material on megalithic sites. For details, visit: here.

25. Darwinism In Archeology! [Science Frontiers Website]
... , 1995.) R. Dennell and L. Hurcombe, two archeologists faced with the geofact problem at their Pakistan dig, tried to solve it experimentally. They deliberately dropped quartzite rocks from heights onto hard surfaces. They concluded: "While conceding that had we conducted the experiment with a thousand, ten thousand, or a hundred thousand stones, a few might have fractures, we would nevertheless maintain that the chances of any showing multiple, multi-directional flaking and all with bulbs of percussion are as remote as the proverbial monkey typing Shakespeare."

27. Before the Chair of Jupiter [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... both died on the same day, and it was the fiftieth anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. What is the statistical chance of this coincidence of three dates? Or if a schoolboy or a man in the street should be asked to select the greatest statesman of the nineteenth century, and the greatest scientist of that century, he would most probably select Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin: both were born on the same day, February 12, 1809. Or similarly the two greatest writers of their age, Miguel Cervantes and William Shakespeare, died on the same day, April 23, 1616. I mentioned these instances to illustrate the idea that coincidence sometimes bears the mark of the miraculous, and sometimes the explaining away of telepathy is stranger than telepathy itself, for which I offered a naturalistic explanation in my paper on ? The Physical Existence of the World of Thought.? Before we left, Einstein told us of his dream of the night before. This dream impressed him strongly and he recounted it it with a voice of unusual warmth and passion, ...

... our Sun, encircled by planets, and some of these he believed were populated by intelligent beings. “You are perchance more afraid to pronounce your judgement,” Bruno said at the last hearing of the tribunal, “than I am to hear it.” On February 17, 1600, from the pile of faggots kindled in Campo dei Fiori in Rome, he was sent to the Inferno by the Inquisition. These were no longer the dark Middle Ages. It was an illustrious time. The same year, 1600, Shakespeare wrote his Hamlet, Bacon had published his Essays in 1597, and both of them remained steadfast adherents of the Ptolemaic, geocentric system of the world, almost one hundred years after Copernicus. Bruno had spent his time and zeal in England, having made only one convert — William Gilbert, who published his great opus, De Magnete, in the same 1600. But when I said that Bruno was despised and pursued by both the Church and by scientists, I had in my mind that Galileo, whose later (1633 ...

... Michel de Nostradame-- known more intimately as Nostradamus (1503-1566)-- the resourceful physician and brilliant political analyst, whose covert quatrains were cryptographic messages for his patrician patrons among them the venerable Catherine de Medicis, queen of Henri II of France. It was the age of Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, better known as Paracelsus (1493-1541), another gifted physician who was intolerant of practitioners of his own profession and other inept colleagues: "All they can do is gaze at piss!" It was the age of William Shakespeare (1564-1616) and Christopher Marlowe (1564-1593), who dramatized in allegory the dissimulation of their time, Marlowe being later murdered for his efforts. It was the age of John Calvin (1509-1564), the witch-burner and religious reformer, and of Martin Luther (1483-1546), the Church-baiting reformationist who taunted the prelates: "When I fart in Wittenberg they smell it in Rome." It was the age of Tycho Brahe (1546-1601), Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543), Johannes Kepler (1561-1630), and Galileo ...
30. Against Russia-or Us? [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... oil-rich Arab countries and the pipelines that carry the oil from the wells to the ports of Mediterranean. It can be shown, however, that this British base is designed not only against Russian penetration into the oil countries, but also against the Americans and their interests in this area, and even more against them than against the Russians. The short history of Cyprus in modern times is this: In the 16th century the island was ruled by the Venetian Republic and controlled the trade routes to the Levant (Near East). Shakespeare made it the scene of his tragedy about 0147Othello,0148 the Venetian Governor of Cyprus. In 1571, Sultan Selim II wrested it from the Venetians. It belonged to Turkey until 1878, when Disraeli, Britain ? s Prime Minister, obtained it from Turkey for the purpose of administration. In 1914 the British converted it into a Crown Colony. The population consists of a Greek majority and a Turkish minority (one fifth of the population.) The British ruled the island, inciting the minority against the majority. In ...
