141. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... unaided eye. And we are certainly smart enough to know that if a passage describes something shining brightly in the sky, and it isn't the Sun, and it isn't the Moon, that it has to be a pin-point of light like a planet or a star. Everybody knows that. We are confused by the fact that we have traditions of sun gods in all cultures (like Apollo), but none of these gods are actually identified with the Sun (the Sun is Helios, not Apollo), but we don't pay much attention to that. Maybe it was a completely different phenomenon. Ic. On Astronomers and Numerology - a response from Dick Atkinson In his ...

... edition), and the author of the article was Latourette. An earlier authority, Jean-Baptiste du Halde, in the second volume of his History of China (1736), said that "should anybody question the historicity of Yao, he would not only be ridiculed, but severely chastized." (He would probably be handled like a traditional Jew who questioned the existence of Moses.) "The history of China preceding his [Yao's] reign is ascribed to the mythical period of the Chinese past," I wrote in Worlds in Collision (pages 100-01). "In the days of Yahou [Yao] the event occurred which separates the almost obliterated and very dim ...
143. The Timna Test [Journals] [Aeon]
... that, from the Middle Kingdom onwards, Egypt had systematically worked the mineral resources of both Central and South-western Sinai, there was little inkling of her expansion as far eastward as the Arabah. The point here was that the Wadi Arabah, as the above map demonstrates, was the thoroughfare between Jerusalem and the Red Sea as well as the traditional mining area of Israel's tenth century United Monarchy. It was against this background that the temple discovery was such a surprise, although, on reflection, it was axiomatic that, inasmuch as Egyptian interest in the Sinai predated that of the mountain kingdom, evidences could turn up anywhere. Thus a working hypothesis was quickly formulated following the recovery ...
144. The Nature and Origin of Comets and the Evolution of Celestial Bodies (Part I) [Journals] [Kronos]
... within the space science community (primarily NASA) to ignore the importance of electrical phenomena. If the data did not fit into the established theoretical picture, after-the-fact theories were contrived to force-fit the data, or the data were simply not dealt with at all. It should have been apparent that the data were unquestionably contradictory to any expectations of traditional theory and that a radically new set of self-consistent concepts would be needed. Part I is the first of a three part series which develops a new theory for comet behavior and solar system evolution. Many may wonder why a new theory is necessary; thus Part I begins with a brief critique of presently "accepted" astronomical theory and ...
145. The Darkness, Part 1 Venus Ch.2 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... , but they lay themselves down . . . their outward senses in a trance. Thus they remained, overwhelmed by the affliction." The darkness was of such kind that "their eyes were blinded by it and their breath choked";(2 ) it was "not of ordinary earthy kind."(3 ) The rabbinical tradition, contradicting the spirit of the Scriptural narrative, states that during the plague of darkness the vast majority of the Israelites perished and that only a small fraction of the original Israelite population of Egypt was spared to leave Egypt. Forty-nine out of every fifty Israelites are said to have perished in this plague.(4 ) A shrine of ...

... described as exceedingly handsome. One narrative provides the following portrait of the god: "He was tall and good-looking, and had long hair hanging loose way down his back." [8 ] The resemblance between Motseyoef and the Skidi Morning Star is particularly close- so close, in fact, that scholars have suspected a possible sharing of traditions between the Cheyenne and Skidi. [9 ] Like the Skidi Mars, Motseyoef is represented as a great warrior. And, as was the case with the Skidi Morning Star, Motseyoef is credited with drilling the first fire- a signature of Creation in numerous myth-ologies. Especially telling is the distinctive color ascribed to the Cheyenne Morning Star ...
147. Oedipus and Akhnaton [Journals] [Pensee]
... an innocent person who first suffers under suspicion of being the perpetrator of a crime and then is absolved when the real evildoer is tracked down and killed or otherwise punished, and it is on this formula that the entire literature of crime and its detection has grown." We might add this modern attitude is the continuation of the ancient Egypto-Semitic tradition that has reached us through the Hebrews. A good Egyptian example is The Eloquent Peasant who is maligned and abused by the villainous Jehuti-Nakht, but virtue prevails so that the innocent and guilty get their just deserts. A Hebrew example is the Book of Daniel, where the villains calumniate the virtuous Daniel and his friends. But the latter's ...
148. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Velikovsky in support of their case, but alas, the possibility of their ignorance of this work must be allowed for. The one inescapable conclusion that must have been made by all who have read WORLDS IN COLLISION, quite apart from all the other works written or inspired by Dr Velikovsky, is that events in ancient history which have been traditionally ascribed by Jewish and Christian tradition as due to the intervention of God, can now be explained by a natural sequence of causes and effects brought about by the interplay between Earth and other bodies in the solar system or even beyond it. Quite apart from the work of Dr Velikovsky, it is not surprising indeed, it may be ...
149. Eastern Anatolia and Velikovsky's Chronological Revisions - II [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. IV No. 1 (Fall 1978) Home | Issue Contents Eastern Anatolia and Velikovsky's Chronological Revisions - II A Comparison of the Two Chronologies Robert H. Hewsen According to Velikovsky, the traditional synchronization of the chronologies of the Middle East is off by anywhere up to eight centuries depending upon the area and the era under consideration. By identifying the date of the Hyksos invasion of Egypt (traditionally the late eighteenth century B.C .) with the date of the Exodus, and demonstrating their coevality to the fifteenth century B.C ., Velikovsky has brought the former event some three centuries closer to the present. In so doing, not ...
150. From Myth to a Physical Model [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon III:3 (Oct 1993) Home | Issue Contents From Myth to a Physical Model Dave Talbott Introduction In this article, the first of three parts, I take up these issues- General issues for catastrophists working in the Velikovskian tradition. What is the basis of our confidence in myth? Can it ever be proven that myth is a reflection of unusual celestial events? Evolution of a mythically-based model. A summary of recent changes in the model of the polar configuration, and a look at other aspects of the configuration on which little or no detail has been previously published. Introduction of Robert Grubaugh and a physical model of the polar configuration. Grubaugh ...
