141. Saturn's Sacred Mountain [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History VIII:1 (Jan 1986) Home¦ Issue Contents INTERACTION Saturn's Sacred Mountain Dwardu Cardona It was bad enough to see critics burden Immanuel Velikovsky with ideas he never really entertained, only to have them ridiculed together with the man who supposedly formulated them. It is however much worse to have a supporter ofthe man burden him in this manner, no matter what the intent may be. While he may have meant well, Charles Seitz is guilty of nothing less. According to Seitz: [1 Immanuel Velikovsky proposed that Saturn was in a stationary position at the North Pole until the time of the Deluge, when it became a nova. Behind Saturn was Jupiter and the rest of the planets. Where, may I ask, did Velikovsky ever propose anything of the sort? Not only were most of the ideas delineated above entirely alien to Velikovsky, he was emphatically against such notions when these were proposed by others. Parts of the above scenario were independently presented by David Talbott and myself. [2 Velikovsky, who ...
142. Velikovsky, Brasseur, And The Troano Codex [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. I No. 1 (Spring 1975) Home¦ Issue Contents Velikovsky, Brasseur, And The Troano Codex John Myers and Warner B. Sizemore In a letter to the editor of the journal Chiron [* Now defunct (Winter-Spring 1974, pp. 44-45), Mr. Ian C. Johnson criticized Velikovsky's use in Worlds in Collision of Charles Etienne Brasseur's delusory translations of the Troano Codex (now part of what is called the Codex Tro-Cortesianus) and of Mayan monument stones. On the face of it, Mr. Johnson's criticism was just, for as Velikovsky, himself, acknowledged in note 2 of "On the Other Side of the Ocean": The Mayan tongue is still spoken by about 300,000 people, but of the Mayan hieroglyphics only the characters employed in the calendar are known for certain. But Mr. Johnson then went on to make the following statement: It is difficult to determine whether the other twenty-seven Brasseur quotations [in Worlds in Collision covering three different works of this author also share this fault ...
143. "Stonehenge Viewpoint?" Biased View (Forum) [Kronos $]
... further rejoinder. I If I had airily dismissed Worlds in Collision on the grounds that I could pick out of it howlers like Velikovsky's embarrassing translation into English of a French rendition of the Ras Shamra tablets,(1) or his over-eager displacement of the astronomer Y-hang from the 8th century A. D. to the 8th century B. C.,(2)* Cardona would have accused me of just picking out the bad bits. Yet, this is the level of criticism he fires at Velikovsky's Sources. [* Velikovsky corrected this error in KRONOS IV:3 (Spring-1979), p. 58. Forrest, however, is only concerned with Velikovsky's possible shortcomings. He therefore makes no effort to check for corrections, despite his considerable industry. This is only one example of Forrest's negative bias and his lack of credible objectivity where Velikovsky is concerned. Forrest also fails miserably when it comes to checking on Velikovsky's published work beyond Worlds in Collision.- LMG Certainly Velikovsky's Sources IS an amateur production. As such, I would be the first ...
144. Child of Saturn (Part II) [Kronos $]
... Vishnu and Shiva Immanuel Velikovsky's identification of the Indic deities as various planets is often inadequately documented. In some cases there is no supporting evidence whatever. One good example is the comparison of Athene's birth from Zeus with "Vishnu born of Shiva"(1) through which it is implied that, even in India, the Venerian planet was believed to have been "born" from the Jovian one. This, of course, necessitates the identification of Shiva as Jupiter and of Vishnu as Venus, both of which were proposed by Velikovsky.(2) Let me say, at once, that at no time did the ancients ever identify these two deities as either of the two planets with which we are concerned.(3) True, this, in itself, does not prove Velikovsky wrong. After all, the Greeks never identified Athene as Venus either. That particular identification rests its case on comparative mythology. It is, therefore, through a similar process that we must evaluate Velikovsky's identification of Vishnu and Shiva as Venus and Jupiter. What evidence ...
145. Compendium [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 2 No 3: (Fall 1972) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered II" Home¦ Issue Contents Compendium Review NASA-- AMES NASA scientists consult with Velikovsky concerning the possibility of life on other planets. The following report was submitted to Pensée by Dr. Richard F. Haines shortly after Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky spent a day in consultation and lecturing at the NASA Ames Research Center last August. Dr. Haines is a research scientist in the Neurosciences Branch at Ames. Much of his work has centered on man's psychological tolerance to the space environment and various visual phenomena experienced in space. The opinions given here are entirely those of the author and do not necessarily represent those of NASA. An invitation to Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky was made early in June, 1972, to speak at Ames Research Center --NASA, located south of San Francisco at Moffett Field. Dr. Velikovsky responded positively and on August 14, 1972, delivered a morning lecture to Ames' staff and an afternoon lecture to an overflow crowd which included the general public ...
146. Antiquated Textbooks: Redesigning the Solar System [Aeon Journal $]
... V:6 (Aug 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents Antiquated Textbooks: Redesigning the Solar System Dwardu Cardona* This paper was originally read on July 14, 2000, at the symposium sponsored by Cosmos& Chronos, held in honor of the 50th anniversary of Worlds in Collision, and the 40th anniversary of Oedipus and Akhnaton, at Deerfield Beach, Florida. Antiquated Textbooks Immanuel Velikovsky's early critics found fault with his vision of the Solar System. They did so because the Solar System they were living in seemed different from the one Velikovsky had described. More than that, they did not like the Solar System Velikovsky had described. As the years went by, however, these critics discovered that the Solar System they were living in was not the real Solar System but, rather, one of their own making. As the years went by, these critics began to have an inkling what the real Solar System was like. Little by little, they began to realize that the real Solar System was more like the one Velikovsky had described than the one they ...
147. Young Velikovsky: From Bergson to Berger [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. XII No. 2 (Spring 1987) Home¦ Issue Contents Young Velikovsky: From Bergson to Berger Duane Vorhees Without denying to psychology, any more than to metaphysics, the right to make itself into an independent science, we believe that each of these two sciences should set problems to the other and can, in a measure, help it to solve them. How should it be otherwise, if psychology has as its object the study of the human mind working for practical utility, and if metaphysics is but this same mind striving to transcend the conditions of useful action and to come back to itself as to a pure creative energy? Many problems which appear foreign to each other as long as we are bound by the letter of the terms in which these two sciences state them, are seen to be very akin and to be able to solve each other when we thus penetrate into their inner meaning.... If we take [the connection between the analytic study of memory and the question with regard to the ...
148. Aba: The Glory and the Torment; The life of Dr Immanuel Velikovsky, by Ruth Velikovsky Sharon, PhD [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1997:2 (Apr 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents Very Limited Edition Aba: The Glory and the Torment; The life of Dr Immanuel Velikovsky by Ruth Velikovsky Sharon, PhD (published by Times Mirror Higher Education Group Inc, 2460 Kerper Boulevard, Dubuque, Iowa 52001, ISBN 0-697-32942-9, £39 45, available in the UK from: Times Mirror International Publishers Ltd, Unit 1, Sheldon Way, Larkfield, Aylsford, Kent, NM20 6SF (0171 391 6464).) (Includes an 88 minute unedited tape of a lecture by Dr Velikovsky reminiscing about his relationships with some of the major figures in the psychoanalytic movement.) Reviewed by Brian Moore As a memorial scrapbook intended for the immediate family, this book would be acceptable; as a commercially published offering to the general public it is a profound disappointment. So low are its production standards that I find it hard to believe that anyone with knowledge of book publishing played a part in its publication- despite acknowledgements to a 'Senior Campus Editor' ...
