31. Sothis and the Morning Star in the Pyramid Texts [Journals] [Aeon]
... throughout the centuries and renowned for numerous conundrums and internal inconsistencies, these texts are not without their difficulties for the researcher of comparative mythology. Such problems notwithstanding, the Pyramid Texts represent the oldest body of literature dealing with the various celestial bodies and, as such, they constitute a vital link in any theory attempting to make sense of archaeoastronomical traditions. It would appear to be the unanimous opinion of Egyptologists that Sirius is mentioned repeatedly in the Pyramid Texts. Indeed, it has been said that "the identification of the goddess Spd.t , Greek Sothis, with the star we call Sirius, is the only one in these texts which is unquestioned." (4 ) ...
32. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Milton had been investigating just what the universal triggering mechanism could have been for synchronous bursts of evolution. In pursuing various descriptions of catastrophic phenomena as described in the Bible, Velikovsky had given but little attention to the one depicted as Elijah went up to heaven in a fiery whirlwind, but Zysman realised that this was not uncommon in many other traditions, with fiery spirals, serpents of fire etc. Zysman's thesis is, briefly, following Velikovsky, that as Earth passed through meteoric debris there were great electrical effects, with the discharge of ionised gases and the flow of electrons and protons into Earth through the poles. Discharges of ionised gases or plasmas are seen today in the form ...
33. Greek History Begins in the Sixth Century B.C. [Journals] [Aeon]
... be more controversial that the crucial question about the truthfulness and reliability of old-world chronology which was compiled and recorded for the first time by ancient historians and chronographs. The archaeological framework still is entirely based upon these decisive dates. Since chronography plays a fundamental role for national and religious identity almost every scientific attempt to separate the reliable from the implausible tradition, and correspondingly, to reject mythical accounts and dates has always been treated with hostility by the general public, scientists included. This is especially true for European chronology that has always been at a disadvantage compared to the Oriental tradition. In comparison with Egyptian, Mesopotamian, and Jewish chronology Greek history unfortunately was rather belated, despite its ...
34. The Great Comet Venus [Journals] [Aeon]
... volcanoes have been estimated, causing one scientist to declare that "the entire planet is one big volcano!" . But what was the source of the massive planetary stresses involved? In geological terms, much of the lava flow is incredibly recent, covering vast portions of the surface, and throwing normal dating systems into chaos. Astronomers have traditionally guessed at the formative periods of a planet's or moon's surface by the number of impact craters. The more craters, the older the surface. But in the case of Venus, much of the surface has been so recently covered (eliminating all craters) that no reliable dating is possible. On the geological time scale, for all ...
35. The World Ages, Prologue Ch.2 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... From "Worlds in Collision" © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The World Ages A conception of ages that were brought to their end by violent changes in nature is common all over the world. The number of ages differs from people to people and from tradition to tradition. The difference depends on the number of catastrophes that the particular people retained in its memory, or on the way it reckoned the end of an age. In the annals of ancient Etruria, according to Varro, were records of seven elapsed ages. Censorinus, an author of the third Christian century and compiler of Varro, wrote that "men thought that different prodigies appeared ...
36. Sicily, Carthage, and the Fall of Troy [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. VIII No. 2 (Winter 1983) Home | Issue Contents Sicily, Carthage, and the Fall of Troy Jan N. Sammer THE WANDERINGS AND COLONIZATION OF THE WEST Greek literary tradition recounts many tales of the "returns" of the heroic generation that fought at Troy- but few of the plunderers of Priam's citadel reached home safely, and those who did kept their thrones for only a little while; most were condemned to years of wandering in the far reaches of the known world until finally, in despair of ever again seeing their homes, they settled on distant shores from one end of the Mediterranean to the other. It was as ...
37. TOWARDS A SCIENCE OF MYTHOLOGY: VELIKOVSKY'S CONTRIBUTION [Journals] [Aeon]
... Isis, Anat, Aphrodite, etc.- invoked by the epithet Queen of Heaven and specifically identified with the planet Venus? (4 ) Why were those same goddesses associated with a destructive epiphany said to have threatened the very foundations of heaven and earth? (5 ) Only Velikovsky, among the hundreds of scholars who have explored these traditions, dared to ask the question: Is it possible to explain the myth of the goddess from the behavior of the planet? Close upon the heels of each of these questions follows a host of others, equally inexplicable from the conventional perspective which imagines the planets to have varied little in their orbit and/or appearance over the course ...
38. Part III: The Legends [Ragnarok] [Books]
... in the development of the great English people. But as time rolled on it was seen that the greater part of history was simply recorded legends, while all the rest represented the passions of factions, the hates of sects, or the servility and venality of historians. Men perceived that the common belief of antiquity, as expressed in universal tradition, was much more likely to be true than the written opinions of a few prejudiced individuals. And then grave and able men, - philosophers, scientists, -were seen with notebooks and pencils, going out into random villages, into German cottages, into Highland huts, into Indian tepees, in short, into all lands, ...
39. Menelaos in Egypt [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... of Egyptian history. These events are generally dated to the second quarter of the 7th century. In conformity with this dating, Greek pottery and artifacts of the early 7th century are discovered with great frequency in the Delta, especially at those sites specifically linked to the Greeks. However, in apparent contradiction of these facts, both archaeology and tradition record contact between Hellenes and Egyptians in an earlier epoch. In his history of Egypt Herodotus informs us that the Egyptians of his time were well acquainted with the story of the Trojan War. They also told of a violent incursion into Egypt by Menelaos, husband of Helen, immediately after the sack of Ilion [2 ]. Although ...
