... cities in Nebraska were lost and anomalous geology created when a comet hit the area in 1680 AD. The New Catastrophism by D. Ager, 1993, $32 95 This is a sequel to The Nature of the Stratigraphic Record, already a classic among neocatastrophists. Written by an expert geologist, this book is described as vivid testimony that uniformitarianism is passť'. Jack Horsford recommends some 19th century books. Book of Beginnings by Gerald Massey (2 vols., London, 1881) This seeks to establish a link between ancient Egypt and Britain., looking at customs, vocabulary, names of persons, places and deities. Vol. 2 investigates links between Hebrew and Egyptian ...

352. The Scientific Mafia [Journals] [Pensee]
... astronomers had long "known" that it was cool, and as late as 1959 accepted estimates of its temperature, such as 59 degrees centigrade, were still being revised slightly downward. Yet it has turned out that the planet has a surface temperature around 800 degrees Fahrenheit. Backward Venus This would be hard enough to reconcile with any "uniformitarian" theory which requires a common origin for all the planets. But worse was to come. For Mariner II put it beyond doubt that the rotation of Venus is retrograde- that is, while it revolves in the same direction as that in which all the other planets both revolve and rotate, it rotates in the contrary sense! No ...

... to say probably will, compromise all future Maya finds and translations. The authors have come to the conclusion that, because some Maya Classic Period inscriptions can be directly related to the present skies, it means that their myths can also be interpreted by retro-calculation and/or observation of current celestial occurrences. They have made the common and fatal uniformitarian mistake that the tranquil sky of the present day is the same as that of the past. If their theory becomes generally accepted, all new discoveries will be viewed through very narrowly focused uniformitarian glasses. Instead of reading about the Cosmic Serpent, the World Tree, and the portal to the Otherworld in the proper context intended by the ...

354. Ascent into Dissent: The Quantavolution Books (Review) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... to the human sickness of which de Grazia writes in the "Q Books." While what happened in history is being argued on the conscious level, human insecurities are peeking out from the unconscious. That the hidden parts shape the whole debate is the conflict. As dissenters the quantavolutionists are made to feel insecure by the majority viewpoint (uniformitarianism) which engulfs them and stifles their every attempt to gain recognition for their scholarship. So quantavolutionists take out their frustration upon "friendly colleagues"- how nice a way to assure that their opponents will win! Instead of saying, say, here is a new way to look at the problem of interpreting planetary and human history, ...

... . If the function of myth is to deprive history of its virulence one might then well ask - even rhetorically - from whence comes the virulence? If myth represents man's attempt to master history through stereotyping and ritualization, are we not faced with what is almost the classical psychoanalytic mechanism of repression, and is it not just possible that the uniformitarian dogmas which have confronted the multifarious evidence produced by Velikovsky rest on precisely that kind of thought process? If so, the work of Levi-Strauss may be, paradoxically, one more key - albeit to the back door - of the Velikovskian labyrinth. It is hoped that this brief essay will have served its purpose if it rouses the curiosity ...

... 129-131) - another stumbling block for Sothic dating. 2. Calendrical changes were not confined to the Mediterranean region for the historical period whose reconstruction is governed by Sothic dating. Among ancient peoples, calendar reform and calendar concern were a universal phenomenon (Worlds in Collision pp. 348-359); and this alone should be enough to destroy the uniformitarian presumptions of Sothic chronology. In China, for example, "questions about the calendar come into striking prominence in Chou times. . . there is hardly a single Chou bronze inscription that omits to begin with the day, the month, and the quarter of the moon" (W . Speiser, The Art of China, p ...

... neither has Ev Cochrane.(41) The pity is that de Santillana and von Dechend, who were aware of this identification,(42) chose not to accept it. But perhaps this is not to be wondered at. While their own research continuously led them to Saturn, these writers were unable to fit that luminary into their uniformitarian theory. While confessing their mystification at its persistent intrusion into their scheme,(43) they constantly brushed Saturn aside and relegated it to the limbo of unimportance. Rather than forcing their own notions on mythology, they should have followed where the evidence led. REFERENCES 1. A. Heidel, The Gilgamesh Epic and Old Testament Parallels ...

358. "Mankind in Amnesia": An Overview [Journals] [Kronos]
... Somehow heritable, the mnemes or mneme complexes (see p.30, M in A) have passed down to present generations, continuously and collectively influencing the course of human thought and action. As with much of Velikovsky's work, the heuristic value here is paramount. A considerable portion of the text is devoted to the millennia-long conflict between uniformitarianism and catastrophism and the putative unconscious triumph of uniformity, despite abundant evidence to the contrary, in the minds of foundational philosophers, theologians, and scientific theorists of Western Civilization. Darwin particularly - with his profound influence on both biological and psychological science - seems to have misguided knowledge, himself the victim of the inexorable force of collective psychological ...

... like Colin Renfrew, date events by dendrochronological re-calibration of radiometric results.(14) Other differences, however, are due less to technique than to basic assumption about the nature of diachronic change. Catastrophists, who assume radical discontinuity in protohistoric development, are inclined to prefer the "revised chronology" of Immanuel Velikovsky to all chronologies based on uniformitarian assumptions.(15) My own very tentative seriation for these linguistic separations, based on an eclectic application of the four divergent approaches listed above, is as follows: 1. the Anatolian/North Pontic split c. 3000 B.C . 2. the Satem/Kentum split c. 2500 B.C . 3. ...

... eliminate? When dealing with earth surface features, too, it is being recognized that landforms such as deltas, for example, may, certainly on the small scale, be produced in a matter of days(5 ). Since many sedimentary deposits consist of gravels or coarse conglomerates over considerable areas and depths, again a more catastrophic than uniformitarian approach is needed in interpreting conditions at the time of their formation. This might also be considered true for paleostriata fossil trees in coal deposits (i .e . tree trunks or casts cutting across several strata) indicating a rapid rate of sedimentation (6 ).
