111. Saul, David and Solomon [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1999:1 (Jul 1999) Home¦ Issue Contents Saul, David and Solomon by J. Eric Aitchison Introduction and Summary Velikovsky had a hero in Saul [1 and argued his case eloquently [2. 'Historical credit for freeing the Near East from the yoke of the Hyksos belongs to Saul, but his great deed was not esteemed, not even recognised. The capture of Avaris and the destruction of the Amalekite host changed the course of history. Once more Egypt rose to power and splendour after being freed from hundreds of years of abject slavery by a descendant of the Hebrews who had been slaves there.' [3 Velikovsky argued that the story of Saul's attack on the Amalekites [4 was the same attack that saw the Hyksos driven out of Avaris. It followed that the Hyksos were the Amalekites. This is well argued [5 and appears a correct identification. The argument for Saul [2 is summarised below. The 'One' of Egyptian Records In setting the Egyptian scene Velikovsky claims that a foreign ...
112. Velikovsky's "The Dark Age of Greece" [The Velikovskian $]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 1 No 2 (1993) Home¦ Issue Contents Velikovsky's "The Dark Age of Greece" (1) Clark Whelton I met Immanuel Velikovsky for the first time in 1969. During our interview at his home in Princeton, he showed me a letter from a man in North Carolina, begging him to complete his Ages in Chaos reconstruction of ancient history. "I am getting old," the man wrote. "If you don't publish soon, I will die without knowing the answer." It is probable the man did indeed die without knowing the answer. Velikovsky's Peoples of the Sea and Ramses II and His Time weren't published until eight and nine years later. The manuscripts of "The Assyrian Conquest" and "The Dark Age of Greece" have still not appeared in print. It is both sad and ironic to speculate that Velikovsky himself may have died without knowing the complete answer. The last two volumes of his revised chronology were received not with the acclaim he hoped for but with unfavorable comments from a ...
113. The Velikovskian Upheaval: A Temporocentric Challenge [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. III No. 2 (Winter 1977) "Velikovsky and Establishment Science" Home¦ Issue Contents The Velikovskian Upheaval: A Temporocentric Challenge Sidney M. Willhelm Academia will never let him get away with it. No matter how many of his predictions prove correct, it will see him dead first. --Charles Fair Velikovsky is today what Copernicus was for astronomical understanding several centuries ago; both scientists challenge a basic mooring to which fundamental cosmological ideas have been anchored. Copernicus assaulted the geocentric theory of the cosmos; Velikovsky challenges the temporocentric notion about the cosmos. The first displaced the human habitat, Earth, as the center of the universe and around which all heaven swirls for the contention of an Earth in motion about the Sun; the second dislodges the human faith that Earth's temporal experience in the present holds true throughout the solar system and throughout the past. The former upsets human spatial concepts, the latter disrupts our time concepts. Temporocentrism, according to sociologist Robert Bierstedt (1948:27-28), is "the unexamined and largely ...
114. Saturday: Introduction [SIS C&C Review $]
... "Proceedings of the SIS Silver Jubilee Event" Home¦ Issue Contents Saturday: Introduction by Harold Tresman Brian Moore chaired the opening session and offered a few personal remarks on SIS history. I first met Harold Tresman in 1974. I had seen Pensée and corresponded with C.J. Ransom. Ransom was in communication with Harold and passed on my address to him. Harold made contact and we started a correspondence, finally agreeing that there was some mileage in starting a society. I re-contacted Euan MacKie who had written a remarkable article about Velikovsky in New Scientist and Harold recruited Martin Sieff, a recent history graduate from Oxford. We had a meeting in London and decided to go ahead with the project- unlikely as it seemed at the time. After the meeting, Euan MacKie and I walked back to the tube station and Euan, normally a quiet, very reserved academic, was quite excited, declaring: 'I now know what Lenin and those Russian revolutionaries felt just before the revolution'. Somehow I doubt if Euan will be reverently embalmed in a mausoleum by ...
... From: Kronos Vol. III No. 1 (Fall 1977) Home¦ Issue Contents The Birth of Vahagn: An Armenian Vision of Celestial Catastrophe? Robert H. Hewsen Copyright© 1977 by Robert H. Hewsen (This article is one of 22 essays contained in an Anthology presented to Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky on December 5, 1975, in honor of Dr. Velikovsky and the 25th anniversary of Worlds in Collision; it is our hope to publish the Anthology in its entirety.- The Ed.) The author wishes to express his indebtedness to another contributor to this Anthology, Mr. Dwardu Cardona of Vancouver, British Columbia, who read this manuscript critically and without whose extensive contributions it would not have appeared in its present form. Heaven and Earth were in labor And in labor was the crimson sea The water of the earth had Reddish reeds. From the stems mist arose From the stems flames arose And through the flames a youth ran forth. He had fiery hair And even his beard was aflame And his eyes were little suns. ...
116. The Blind Pharaoh [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Proceedings of The Second Seminar of Catastrophism and Ancient History (1985) Home¦ Issue Contents The Blind Pharaoh Bronson Feldman Eyeless in Egypt Immanuel Velikovsky's monumental argument named Oedipus and Akhnaton presents evidence that the Egyptian monarch Amenhotep IV, who changed his name to Akhnaton, went blind. Velikovsky points out that Herodotos, the Ionian historian, who may have traveled to Egypt before the year 444 prior to the Papal period, learned from the priests of the god Amon that, after an obscure pharaoh called Asychis, "a blind man of the city of Anysis, whose name was Anysis," had held the throne.[l The aquiline eyes of Velikovsky observed that there was but one king of Egypt whose name was nearly identical with that of a city. Akhnaton moved his capital from Thebes to the newly constructed town of Aketaton. The name Anysis indicates that Herodotos did not recall the blind king's name exactly; however, if he heard the priests emphasize the name of the pharaoh's god Aton, he would naturally remember it better than the syllables ...
117. A Response to Forrest [SIS C&C Review $]
... major research project on the date and interpretation of the "Papyrus Ipuwer", an advance report of which was published in SISR II:3. With respect to Velikovsky's interpretation the "Papyrus Ipawer", Forrest has raised several points worthy of further consideration. However, both the methodology and bibliography of Forrest's study have serious flaws. Velikovsky's Sources is an exercise in anti-Velikovskianism. It is only fair to state this plainly at the outset. The author builds on the a priori position that there cannot have been such cosmic upsets as Velikovsky describes; that, even if there were, mythology and legend do not refer to them; and that the concept of "collective amnesia" is at best an excuse with which to make it appear that they are mentioned in native traditions and Biblical and other texts. As the Editors' correspondence with him has shown, Bob Forrest belongs to the group of opponents of Velikovsky who are constitutionally incapable of giving Worlds in Collision objective consideration- that is, indulging the outside possibility that there may be some value in it. ...
118. Pseudo-scientists, Cranks, Crackpots and Henry Bauer [The Velikovskian $]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 1 No 1 (1993) Home¦ Issue Contents Pseudo-scientists, Cranks, Crackpots and Henry Bauer Charles Ginenthal In Beyond Velikovsky, the History of a Public Controversy, (Chicago, 1984), page 152, Henry Bauer, the author, states, "Pseudo-scientists, crackpots, cranks --these are pejorative terms. If we can show an idea to be wrong why not leave it at that? Why insult the man who put forward the idea?" This sounds quite balanced and is an admirable way of discussing scientific issues that are being debated. The only problem with this assertion is that Bauer does not follow this course of action at all in his discussion of Velikovsky. In fact, he pursues just the opposite course. On the very page in which he makes this declaration, Bauer states of Velikovsky, "He is, I believe, a pseudo-scientist." On page 173, he further remarks, "To my satisfaction Velikovsky is a crank." So we have Bauer on the record calling Velikovsky by pejorative ...
119. The Sun's Magnetic Field [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. II No. 3 (Feb 1977) Home¦ Issue Contents For the Record... The Sun's Magnetic Field In "Cosmos Without Gravitation" (Scripta Academica Hierosolymitana, N.Y., 1946), Velikovsky claimed that the Sun, planets, satellites, and comets are interdependent charged bodies. He also stated: "The solar surface is charged negatively in relation to the charge of the earth, as the spectral lines (with the dominant red line in the spectrum of hydrogen) reveal. The sun carries a charge and rotates: it is an electromagnet" (p. 17, emphasis added). Velikovsky then cited the earlier work of G.E. Hale (in 1913) who, when he undertook to detect the Zeeman effect,* noted that" 'the form of the corona and the motion of the prominences suggest that it [the Sun is a magnet'... The Zeeman effect proved to be most pronounced at 45 of both hemispheres of the sun" (p. 17). [* ...
120. Focus [SIS C&C Review $]
... series of long historic records of geophysical processes [specifically the "Hurst phenomenon" concerning the maximum flood stages of the Nile is compatible with the concept of catastrophic evolution". A modest start, but the journal is a potential source of value to members with a geological bent. Subscription is $10.00 for four quarterly issues ($ 12.50 airmail). The editor, though suspecting that "Velikovsky's theories may provide us with another kind of reductionism", is planning special issues on particular themes, one of which will deal with Velikovsky. CENTER FOR VELIKOVSKIAN AND INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES, Glassboro State College, Glassboro, New Jersey 08028. "Founded in March, 1975, the Center serves as a focal point for the collection, examination, dissemination and discussion of the ideas of Immanuel Velikovsky, and hopes to promote and encourage the interdisciplinary approach to a variety of controversial topics. The Center takes no public stand on the validity of any of the hypotheses which come to its attention, but serves as a medium for the free exchange of ideas, extending complete academic ...
