151. In Passing [Journals] [SIS Review]
... and social progress, but remnants of earlier skills. Catastrophe, even local, seems never to occur to Leakey. Remains of thousands of horses in one pile must have been the results of man's positive hunting and the remains of many animals in an area indicate that there were vast herds. Reindeer, horse, bison and ibex, a strange assemblage of ecological types by today's standards, dwell together. Interesting, though, in any context, are engravings of marine fish in caves in central France, nearly 200 miles from the sea; evidence from engravings and teeth that horses were domesticated and harnessed 30,000 years ago; that cattle were domesticated well before 13,000 ...

152. Of the Moon and Mars, Part 2 [Journals] [Pensee]
... in connection with "each ray element," but their placement, always "at the near end," poses a problem for the ejection hypothesis. Is it conceivable that larger objects randomly mixed with fines in ejecta streams would always manage to drop to the surface just at the inner ends of fallout patterns produced by the fines? The strange proportions of Tycho's long rays seem all-but-impossible to reconcile with ejection origins. Enormous velocities of ejection must be postulated to explain the lengths of the rays, yet the energetic processes responsible for such velocities must be imagined to be focused very precisely to account for the ribbon-thin appearance of the rays. Early in this century Pickering reviewed the ray-origin ideas ...

153. Velikovsky: The Open Minded Approach [Journals] [SIS Review]
... chains; the shifted poles; reversed magnetic polarities; sudden changes in sea level all around the world; rifts on land and under the seas. ' (3 ) "Yes, but it's still impossible. All you have to do is back-calculate the orbits of the planets and confirm these with ancient observations." Well, firstly, strange as it may seem, every ancient civilisation kept a year of 360 days down to around 750 BCE when they all got it into their heads, independently, to change it, and modifications continued everywhere till after 700 BCE. Stonehenge was repeatedly wrecked and rearranged. And, strangely, ancient star and planet observations DO NOT CORRESPOND to ...

154. VELIKOVSKY AND OEDIPUS [Journals] [Aeon]
... of introduction it should be said that while Velikovsky's thesis appears incredible, it is no more incredible than those which have been offered by Egyptologists. Thus Akhnaton has been seen as a woman masquerading as a man; as a eunuch; as a great poet or philosopher-king; etc. Indeed, the period of Akhnaton has given rise to more strange theories than virtually any other period of ancient history. Margaret Murray, for example, was moved to state: "More nonsense has been written about the Amarna period than any other in Egyptian history."(8 ) My first impression upon reading Oedipus and Akhnaton was that Velikovsky had succeeded in the identification of Oedipus and Akhnaton, ...

156. The Parting of the Waters of the Red Sea [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... , Mr. Faraday", who was one of the most eminent scientists in the field of electricity in the 19th century. Conclusion Have I by this proved that the Parting of the Waters really took place? Certainly not. The main reason for believing that it did is still what the traditions tell us. As Velikovsky wrote: "Strange, indeed, is the persistence with which the Jewish people have clung to this story, making it the beginning and at the same time the most dramatic episode of their history as a nation."[8 ] What I hope to have shown is merely that you cannot dispose of the Parting of the Waters just by showing that ...

157. The Ching Hsing [Journals] [Horus]
... from the East? We shall leave a thorough examination of this question for another time though, for now, we may assure the reader that such association abound in the literature regarding the Star of Bethlehem. To conclude our survey of ancient Chinese traditions regarding Venus and the Ching Hsing phenomenon, let us give a second thought to the other strange things that were expected to accompany a Ching Hsing - wine-sweet springs, purple herbs, phoenixes or dragons in the heavens, and so on. These seem at first glance to be so unrelated to anything natural that we tend to dismiss them as Chinese whimsy. But, again, when compared with the ancient tales of other cultures regarding ...

... any of the Twelve Tribes in his detailed annals of the war and, reciprocally, no reference is preserved in the Books of Joshua and Judges to a war conducted by the Egyptians in Canaan. The Pereset being the invading hordes of the Philistines, it was argued that apparently the Israelites had not yet reached Canaan. This would explain the strange fact that Ramses III could have carried on a great and victorious war against the Philistines and their allies, partly on the terrain of Palestine, without the Israelite tribes having been involved on one side or another. It is usual to interpret the situation in this way: such a late arrival of the Israelites would explain their not being ...

... , the meteor shower which rains, largely unnoticed, on the Earth's daytime hemisphere in late June. Precession of the equinoxes would be expected to advance this date by a day every 70 years, or a week every 500 [for details see note 25], but apparently the orbit itself evolves, off-setting the effect [26]. Strangely, in Serpent', the ancient Egyptians did not have the benefit of this cancellation effect, and had continually to adjust their rituals because The orbit of such a stream would be bound to drift with time' [27]. Also strangely, the months singled out in the earlier work for Egyptian cometary/meteoric devotions were March ...

... his title of Governor of his Circle' but it is a phenomenon that is restricted to northern regions and hardly, if ever, seen at the latitude of Egypt. Furthermore the Egyptians assimilated Ra to the god Atum and, in fact, this deity is often referred to in Egyptian documents as Atum-Ra. This god bore a specific and strange characteristic: Atum was honoured as a sun of night [45]. Does the Sun shine at night? Students of Egyptian mythology have long grappled with the exact meaning that lies beneath this strange characteristic of Atum. The best explanation Wallis Budge could offer was that Atum was the Sun after it had set [46]. By ...
