... cannot be satisfactorily answered, how shall we be able to explain the causes of the presently existing state of our globe ? It is certain, that so far from any of these points being as yet completely established, naturalists seem to have scarcely any idea of the propriety of investigating facts before they construct their systems. The cause of this strange procedure may be discovered, . THEORY OP THE EARTH. 6? by considering that all geologists hitherto have either been mere cabinet naturalists, who had themselves hardly paid any attention to the structure of mountains, or mere mineralogists, who had not studied in sufficient detail the innumerable diversity of animals, and the almost infinite complication of their ...

42. On the Nature of Cometary Symbolism [Journals] [Kronos]
... body of the celestial "serpent" is so closely associated with the circular dwelling of the Saturn-sun as to suggest a crucial symbolic identity: the "tail" of the Venus-comet and the band of the enclosed sun are, if not mythologically synonymous, at least inseparably connected. THE GREAT COMET It is well known that early man had many strange beliefs about comets, associating their appearance with the death of kings, the end of world ages, and universal conflagrations.(1 ) But since none of these beliefs accord with the modern experience of comets, one is left with three ways of explaining the disparity: 1) The ancients simply made up their ideas about comets without ...

... wife and father-in-law; (5 ) the carrying off of the gates of Gaza; (6 ) and the unprovoked murder of the 30 men from Ashkelon. (7 ) Such incidents led Frazer to call attention to the glaring incongruities in the Biblical account of Samson. "Among the grave judges of Israel the burly hero Samson cuts a strange figureIf we accept, as we are bound to do, the scriptural account of this roy-stering swashbuckler, he never levied a regular war or headed a national insurrection against the Philistines, the oppressors of his people; he merely sallied forth from time to time as a solitary paladin or knight-errant, and mowed them down with the jawbone of ...

... , together with hot stones, poured upon Egypt. "The Egyptians refused to let the Israelites go, and He poured out naphtha over them, burning blains [blisters]." It was a "stream of hot naphtha."(9 ) Naphtha is petroleum in Aramaic and Hebrew. The population of Egypt was "pursued with strange rains and hails and showers inexorable, and utterly consumed with fire: for what was more marvelous of all, in the water which quencheth all things the fire wrought yet more mightily,"(10) which is the nature of burning petroleum; in the register of the plagues in Psalms 105 it is referred to as "flaming ...

45. Sargonids and Achaemenids [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... Greek-style realism. We have stated that the religious and royal iconography of the Neo-Assyians is specifically Persian. The religious material will be examined shortly, but one point relating to royal symbolism needs to be mentioned here. The Persian royal symbol par excellence was the feathered crown. This is part of common knowledge and fully accepted by all authorities. Strangely however, and incomprehensibly, the feathered crown also appears in Neo-Assyrian art (see fig.38), and also in Neo-Assyrian religious iconography. Thus for example from the time of Tiglath-Pileser III onwards the winged bulls who guard the entrances to Neo-Assyrian palaces are shown wearing a tall cylindrical-shaped headdress, of Persian style, surmounted by a feathered ...

... Then what was the end of the queen? In what adverse circumstances did she finish her life? Why was she treated as an outcast when her eyes closed? Why was her mummy removed even from the shabby tomb, as though the place was still too good for her? Perhaps the Greek tradition can give us the answer to this strange state of affairs. Jocasta took her own life: Homer knew this, and the passage has been quoted on a previous page. Let us examine whether such an end for Tiy would explain many things left unexplained concerning her death. All over the world, among the most disparate races, a suicide, unless he offers his life ...

... "The Book of the Damned", Charles Fort wrote: His method was the usual method by which anything can be identified' as anything else, that is to pick out whatever is agreeable and disregard the rest. Fort was here actually talking about certain Mayan symbols supposedly identified by a Mr. Charles F. Holder on "a strange stone resembling a meteorite". But it seems to me that Fort's words could also serve to describe Velikovsky's working method in "Worlds in Collision"- this being the continuing theme of the present book. I would stress, however, that Fort's words do not describe working method in "Velikovsky's Sources"! The suggestion has recently ...

That among them we should look for the agency of the threatened fiery destruction had been for many years considered an inadmissible idea. But wonders and wild fancies had been, of late days, strangely rife among mankind; and, although it was only with a few of the ignorant that actual apprehension prevailed, upon the announcement by astronomers of a new comet, yet this announcement was generally received with I know not what of agitation and mistrust.

... had shifted her attention to Polynesia, and soon she hit pay dirt. As she looked into the archaeological remains on many islands, a clue was given to her. The moment of grace came when, on looking (on a map) at two little islands, mere flyspecks on the waters of the Pacific, she found that a strange accumulation of maraes or cult places could be explained only one way: they, and only they, were both exactly sited on two neat celestial coordinates: the Tropics of Cancer and of Capricorn. Now let Dechend take over the narrative: "To start from sheer opposition to ruling opinions is not likely to lead to sensible insight, ...
