161. The Origin And Evolution Of Stars [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... questions. According to current theory, two stars as close together as this pair should not exist.154 The reason for this is made explicit. One of the members of this binary system is a pulsar, at one solar diameter apart from its partner. "Whatever the companion's nature, there is an unexplainable aspect to both of these strange cosmic twins .. .. [P ]ulsars . . . and white dwarfs are all cadavers of dead stars of huge dimensions. How did these two stars get so close together if they each had come from stars larger than the sun? How did one survive the supernova explosion required to create the other?"155 In ...

... of cosmic bodies, prime among which were the very planets of the solar system. It did not take Velikovsky, or any of his precursors, to convince me of this. The ancients, who were in the best position to know what they themselves believed in, so stated in many of their texts. It therefore struck me as strange that most modern mythologists would go to such great pains in attempting to explain mythological characters and themes in anything but cosmic terms. In this respect, whatever else may be said of him, Velikovsky proved superior. Not that he was always correct when identifying specific deities with specific planets but, had he dug deeper in a field which ...

163. The Ark Myth [Books]
... ]. ' Of late this translation has been improved upon at a certain point, though Assyrologists and mythologists are somewhat at a loss what the new rendering might mean, and therefore do not insist upon it. The expression destructive rain-flood' (alternatively: great hail) is now being translated literally, yet only tentatively' because of its strangeness as dirty rain', or grimy rain', or filthy rain'. The mythological school which is based upon Hoerbiger's cosmogonic theory welcomes this new rendering and is able to vouch for its aptness: we would suggest mud rain': the reference being to the fall on the Earth of the deposits of ooze at the bottom o ...

... from God, and to desire to be under a king? - yet have I ordained him for king whom he chose for you. However, that I may make it plain to you that God is angry and displeased at your choice of kingly government, I will so dispose him that he shall declare this very plainly to you by strange signals; for what none of you ever saw here before, I mean a winter storm in the midst of harvest, (10) I will entreat of God, and will make it visible to you." Now, as soon as he had said this, God gave such great signals by thunder and lightning, and the ...

... because God esteemed him worthy of the success of his conduct, on account of his goodness and righteousness. But some time afterward there came some persons to him, and brought an accusation against certain of the multitude, and of the priests and Levites, who had transgressed their settlement, and dissolved the laws of their country, by marrying strange wives, and had brought the family of the priests into confusion. These persons desired him to support the laws, lest God should take up a general anger against them all, and reduce them to a calamitous condition again. Hereupon he rent his garment immediately, out of grief, and pulled off the hair of his head and ...

... came to this conclusion and also decided that the mysterious signs are Hittite writings. Since almost nothing was known of Hittite history, it was like resurrecting an empire from oblivion, and it was called "a discovery of a forgotten empire."1 However, warning voices were also heard among scholars who were opposed to the idea, very strange to them, that the ancient world of the empires of Egypt and Assyro-Babylonia should be increased by a newly discovered empire of the Hittites. The Egyptian documents that mention Hatti are the war annals of Thutmose III (in a few lines only) and of Seti and Ramses II (extensively). The el-Amarna letters, written in cuneiform ...

167. The Ark in Action [Books] [de Grazia books]
... Ark was a highly dangerous machine. Ordinary Bible reading and anthropological training about primitive customs condition one to pass over indifferently its taboos. The people, officers, dissenters, priests and in fact everyone except Moses are warned to avoid the Ark, or to approach it carefully on pain of death. The Holy of Holies is well away from strange hands when Israel is in camp. (See Figure 13.) The invisibility of electric charges is, of course, a major concern. The danger is unseen. People must have faith and discipline to observe safety precautions respecting electricity. Not until the studies of S. Jellinek in Austria during the 1920's did it become quite clear ...

John Norden unequivocally states that We at the present see Time's changing state, And Nature's fearful alterations, As if Time now did preach the Heaven's debate, And Stars to band in dismal factions. Strange Signs are seen, divine probations, That some Effect will follow of Admire, Too late, when come, to say it will retire.

... eight hundred in number. Nevertheless the Scripture counts them equal to three thousand, for the reason that each verse in his book admits of a double and a triple interpretation. In his wisdom he analyzed the laws revealed to Moses, and he assigned reasons for the ritual and ceremonial ordinances of the Torah, which without his explanation had seemed strange. (24) The "forty-nine gates of wisdom" were open to Solomon as they had been to Moses, but the wise king sought to outdo even the wise legislator. He had such confidence in himself that he would have dispensed judgment without resort to witnesses, had he not been prevented by a heavenly voice. (25 ...
