121. A Critique of "Ramses II and His Time" [Journals] [SIS Review]
... remaining contributions to this issue jointly form an approach to the later parts of Velikovsky's historical reconstruction by three of the speakers at the conference at Glasgow last Spring, who also provided a significant part of the material for the special issue of our last volume, where a wide Variety of new and compelling evidence was presented to support the chronological revision Velikovsky proposed in the, first book of the AGES IN CHAOS series, "From the Exodus to King Akhnaton". Peter James' detailed consideration of the latest volume in the series evaluates Velikovsky's proposals for the identification of the XIXth Dynasty of Egypt with the XXVIth Dynasty of Manetho and other writers, in the light of the archaeological and ...
122. For the Benefit of the Press [Journals] [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 4 No 2: (Spring 1974) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered VII" Home | Issue Contents For the Benefit of the Press News reports of the San Francisco symposium constitute a fascinating study in their own right. Analysis of these accounts shows a number of misrepresentations occurring repeatedly, and often in strikingly similar phrases. We have selected the following brief excerpts from Newsweek (February 25, 1974), Los Angeles Times, Oakland Tribune, New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco Examiner (all dated February 26), Philadelphia Inquirer (February 27), Science News (March 2), The Chronicle of Higher Education (March 4 ...

But it is immediately clear that the escape velocity on these objectsperhaps 20 miles per hour-is so small as to make them incapable of retaining even temporarily any atmosphere; close-up Viking photographs show no atmosphere and no frost patches; and they are among the darkest objects ...

125. El-Arish Revisited [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. XI No. 2 (Winter 1986) Home | Issue Contents El-Arish Revisited Sean Mewhinney Late in the last century an unimposing shrine of Ptolemaic times was found at el-Arish, overturned to serve as a cattle-trough. The inscription had suffered accordingly, but some 74 lines yet remained. In this text Velikovsky saw a parallel Egyptian account of Exodus, confirming the plague of darkness and the miraculous parting of the Sea of Passage. He believed that useful historical information could be elicited from it, by means of which the pharaoh of the Exodus and the route taken by the fleeing Israelites might be identified. MY interest was aroused in the el-Arish inscription because, ...
126. Sagan's "Ten Plagues" [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. III No. 2 (Winter 1977) "Velikovsky and Establishment Science" Home | Issue Contents Sagan's "Ten Plagues"Ralph E. Juergens PROBLEM I. THE EJECTION OF VENUS BY JUPITER Sagan opens the curtain on his analysis of what he refers to as Velikovsky's "predictions" with a remark that sets the mood for everything that follows: The ejection of "an object of planetary dimensions" by Jupiter "has never been observed by astronomers . . ." With these words he places himself in the company of eighteenth century astronomers, who denied the reality of meteorites because they had never seen stones falling from the sky. Getting down to ...

128. L. Sprague de Camp: Anatomy of a Zetetic [Journals] [Kronos]
... of the most vociferous critics of Worlds in Collision during the past twenty-seven years have been science-fiction/science-popularizer writers. They include L. Sprague de Camp, Martin Gardner, Isaac Asimov, Willy Ley, Daniel Cohen, Charles Fair, and - more recently - Carl Sagan. This group of individuals has much in common. Their criticisms of Velikovsky are usually purely subjective, highly ad hominem - replete with irrelevancies and innuendo, error-laden, distinctly unscientific, repetitious, and often borrowed from each other. In some cases, one may even seriously Question whether or not a given critic has read Worlds in Collision in anything other than a cursory fashion. While it is L. Sprague ...

Libby published an account of the development of a new technique for dating the time since the death of previously living matter.

Libby reprinted a review article about this method in Pensee. 1 Some of his major points will be given in the next ...

Greenberg On February 25, 1974, Carl Sagan presented a lengthy criticism of Worlds in Collision (1 ) before a capacity audience in the Grand Ballroom of San Francisco's St. Francis Hotel. The occasion was a symposium-"Velikovsky's Challenge to Science" --held under the auspices of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Though Sagan's symposium paper was supposed to be finalized at the time of delivery, nearly two full years were to elapse before the "finished" product was actually made publicly available. By then ...
