201. Emperor Yahou, Part 1 Venus Ch.4 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... it is estimated that in the year 1556 the quaking earth took 830,000 lives and 3,000,000 in 1662.(7 ) Was not the catastrophe of the time of Yahou one of the major inundations of rivers, as modern scholars suppose it to have been? But the fact that this catastrophe has been vivid in traditions for thousands of years, while neither the overflow of the Yellow River, when a million people perished, nor the great earthquakes, play a conspicuous part in the recollections of the nation, is an argument against the established interpretation. Rivers do not overflow in the form of a sky-high wave. The overflowing rivers of China subside in ...

... But it may be expected that insofar as information is available, a correct chronology of the ancient world will show a discernable harmony at every point where it is possible to check and will certainly be free of major synchronistic failures. Dating Historical Events from Eclipse Data One of the tools which has commonly been employed to assist in arriving at the traditional structure of ancient chronology is the dating of events by means of coincident astronomical phenomena. While most of us are not sufficiently versed in the science of astronomy to understand how the calculations are made, we accept the predictions of astronomers when we are told that on such a date and at such an exact time of day, an eclipse ...

203. A Hypothetical Ancient Telescope [Journals] [Horus]
... From: Horus Vol. 2 No. 3 (Fall 1986) Home | Issue Contents A Hypothetical Ancient Telescope Francis G. Graham The telescope is traditionally thought to have been invented around 1608 and first used astronomically by Galileo in 1610. However, there are numerous instances of Renaissance "discoveries" actually being rediscoveries of ancient knowledge. Electroplating, mechanical clocks, steam engines, concentrating mirrors, and the circumnavigation of Africa are certain and sure examples. Since less than ten percent of the writings of the ancient world survive, it is likely there are many more examples of lost discoveries. Archaeological evidence from Pompeii shows that the ancient Romans used water-filled glass globes to magnify words ...

... exclusively for this part of the statues. The largest of these weighed 10 tons and had been raised 32 feet to top a 50 ton statue. A common native legend tells that the statues were not transported at all, but moved by themselves, through the magic of an old witch, from the mountain where they were carved. Other traditions say that the stone giants were pulled over the ground by heavy ropes, using small stones as rollers. Modern theories suggest they were raised to the standing position by gradually prying up one end with wooden levers while wedging supporting rocks underneath until the statue was upright. How the statues actually were transported and erected, and how the red ...

... other planets, such as the Mariner explorations of Mars, the Voyager missions to Jupiter and Saturn, and more recently the Magellan mapping of Venus, have produced many stunning images of the planets and their moons, together with undeniable evidence of sweeping catastrophe within the planetary system. Taken as a whole, these stark profiles of our neighbors challenge traditional theories claiming slow and uneventful planetary evolution. Moreover, a new possibility arises from a reconsideration of the historical material: the possibility that the horrendous scars on our planetary neighbors resulted from events witnessed by man not all that long ago. What do you mean by the statement that the planets appeared as "gigantic bodies in the sky? ...

206. Velikovsky & Saturnists & the Gods [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... , however, it should be relatively easy to document. After all, it stands to reason that if such were indeed the case, the stories of the ancient cultures must needs be different and not display significant parallels. As Talbott and I have documented at great length, however, such is not the case. Rather, the ancient traditions surrounding the Saturn, Venus, and Mars are remarkably consistent from culture to culture, in the New World as well as the Old. Such consistency speaks against Tim's idea of ancient myth as "just plain tall tales" and in favour of viewing myth as commemorating common experiences of human beings the world over.

207. An Interim Reply To Weir [Journals] [Kronos]
... space might have entered the solar system and caused temporary perturbations in the planetary orbits, and I pointed out that some of the variations in the recorded Venus observations might have arisen through a change in the orbital eccentricity of Venus. What more do Rose and Vaughan want?" What we want, of course, is an abandonment of the traditional approach - the approach so enthusiastically pursued by Weir - of retrocalculating the orbits of both Earth and Venus and then trying to match their retrocalculated behavior against the observations reported on the Venus tablets. We want people like Weir to stop trying to use the present orbits to determine what is "wrong" with the observations on the Venus tablets ...

208. Boiling Earth and Sea, Part 1 Venus Ch.4 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... Mexican sources relate how, at the closing hours of the age that was brought to an end by the rain of fire, mountains swelled under the pressure of molten masses and new ridges rose; new volcanoes sprang out of the earth, and streams of lava flowed out of the cleft earth.(1 ) Events underlying Greek and Mexican traditions are narrated in the Scriptures. "The mountains shake with the swelling .. . the earth melted."(2 ) "Clouds and darkness . . . fire . . . the earth saw and trembled. The hills melted like wax."(3 ) "He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he ...

... what he had heard at random at the gates of the rabbinical schools of Medina"(8 ) which in those days had a strong Jewish influence.(9 ) It is therefore possible that Mohammed learned of Abraham from the rabbinical tidbits he collected at the time. It is, however, more probable that Mohammed's familiarity with the Abrahamic traditions was simply due to common knowledge. The Arabs, after all, had claimed descent from a son of Abraham long before Mohammed. Abraham is known to have had an Egyptian concubine named Hagar. From their union was born Ishmael. Because of the jealousy of his wife Sarah, Abraham was forced to drive Hagar and her son Ishmael ...

(Illustration by David Talbott) AEON: Could you, once again, explain the images in question? Talbott: The theory identifies the components by reference to early astronomical traditions. The primeval sun (Unity, formless god) is Saturn, hanging huge and motionless in the sky. The central orb (or ovoid form on the bottom illustration) is Venus. And the smaller darker orb is Mars. The ovoid form of Venus, I have suggested, involved gases (presumably drawn from Mars) and ...
