221. Eclipses in Ancient Times [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 3 No 3: (Fall 1973) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered V" Home¦ Issue Contents Eclipses in Ancient Times Immanuel Velikovsky, John Q. Stewart Evidence for or against "Worlds in Collision?" The following excerpts are taken from a much longer exchange published in Harper's magazine, June, 1951, between Velikovsky and the late Princeton University astronomer, John Q. Stewart. It gains currency owing to a question posed in a letter to the editor (Pensee, fall, 1972, 44). Copyright 1951 by Minneapolis Star and Tribune Co., Inc. Reprinted from Harper's magazine by special permission. Ed. I. IMMANUEL VELIKOVSKY On the basis of ancient records of eclipses, [critics argue, precise calculations have established that, from the second millennium before the present era down to our time, the lunar eclipses have been retarded by the infinitesimal and almost exact interval of 1/1,000 of a second in a century; this very minute retardation is the result of tidal friction between the Earth and ...
222. Sequence and events [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1999:1 (Apr 1999) Home¦ Issue Contents Sequence and events From: firstname.lastname@example.org (James Conway) Date: Thu, 25 Feb 1999 18:26:35 -0800 (PST) Henry Zecher: If Velikovsky identified a Middle Kingdom Egyptian with Joseph, Donovan Courville also identified one. Perhaps it was the same one. Clark Whelton: Velikovsky has the so-called "Middle Kingdom" (the Egyptians did not use such terminology) ending with the first Venus catastrophe ca. -1450. James Conway: The Middle Kingdom ends with the 12th dynasty or the first half of the 18th century BCE. Joseph lived and worked in Egypt during the reign of Sesostris III. Clark: Please cite your sources for that statement James: Sesostris III is given by Diodorus to have been conqueror and ruler of nearly the whole world and he brought peoples of many lands back to Egypt in great numbers. The Bibles states that Joseph became governor second to none which means he later became Pharaoh. The only need for a governor ...
223. Student Academic Freedom Forum / Pensée Magazine [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 2 No 3: (Fall 1972) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered II" Home¦ Issue Contents Student Academic Freedom Forum/ Pensée Magazine ANOMALY: While there is no more burning issue on campuses today than the revolution in science and the humanities that was initiated by the work of Immanuel Velikovsky, most professional journals and learned societies continue their silence. In special courses, seminars, theses, and lectures, students and professors at universities around the country are demanding that Velikovsky's work receive fair consideration. (For his lecture at Canada's McMaster University earlier this year, the crowd overflowed from the main auditorium into six additional halls, with closed circuit television.) Open-minded researchers are confronting the keepers of orthodoxy with hard questions. Pensée's special issue on Velikovsky, published last spring, evoked such an intense and favorable response-- from presidents of universities to undergraduates to high school students-- that the editors have decided to extend their exclusive focus upon this heretical scientist's work. Pensée announces- "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered" --a series of 10 ...
224. Magnetic Remanence in Lunar Rocks [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 2 No 2: (May 1972) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered I" Home¦ Issue Contents Magnetic Remanence in Lunar Rocks A Candid Look at Scientific Misbehavior Robert Treash Robert Treash teaches at San Diego Evening College Prior to the first Apollo moon landing July 21, 1969, Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky on three occasions successfully predicted the scientifically unexpected --that remanent magnetism would be discovered in the lunar rocks. Outlining his ideas in a memorandum submitted to H. H. Hess, chairman of the Space Science Board, National Academy of Science, on May 19, 1969, Velikovsky wrote: "The moon was repeatedly heated and its entire surface melted less than 35 and 27 centuries ago. At the times the moon's surface was molten in near approaches with other celestial bodies, it was enveloped in powerful magnetic fields; if the surface cooled below the Curie point before the magnetic fields were weakened and removed, then it is to be expected that lavas on the moon (most of its rocks are lava) still possess a high magnetic remanence ...
225. Freeing The Log Jam [Pensee]
... From: SIS Index to Pensée (1979) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered" Home¦ Issue Contents Freeing The Log Jam Dr Euan W. MacKie Assistant Keeper at the Hunterian Museum of the University of Glasgow and founder member of the Society for Interdisciplinary Studies. Over a quarter of a century has now elapsed since the publication of Worlds in Collision and since the beginning of that extraordinary furore which the appearance of this controversial work stimulated among eminent members of the scientific and academic professions. What place do the ideas of Immanuel Velikovsky occupy now in the world of science and scholarship? It is probably fair to say that, while the majority of the experts in the relevant fields are still either actively hostile or apathetic towards the concept of a catastrophic history for the Earth and the solar system, the number of those who believe that Velikovsky may have said something very important indeed appears to be steadily growing, at least in English-speaking countries. Interest among the general public also apparently continues undiminished, judging by the sales of Dr Velikovsky's books. The evidence for this increase ...
226. "VELIKOVSKY'S CHALLENGE TO SCIENCE" [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 4 No 1: (Winter 1973-74) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered VI" Home¦ Issue Contents "VELIKOVSKY'S CHALLENGE TO SCIENCE" AAAS symposium will attempt an evaluation of Velikovsky's work, focusing on "the nature and origin of the planets." Review Compendium More than 20 years ago Immanuel Velikovsky concluded, from his studies of historical and archaeological records, that close encounters between Earth and the planets Venus and Mars occurred near 1500 B.C. and 775 B.C. Velikovsky's suggestions differed greatly from the generally accepted view of the solar system, and many astronomers and historians considered his conception to be fallacious. Although an attempt was made to suppress Velikovsky's writings, public interest in his ideas continued, and in recent years has increased. This renewed interest arises in part from the progress of space exploration. Velikovsky claims that the results of space research support his views; however, many astronomers flatly disagree. An AAAS meeting symposium entitled "Velikovsky's Challenge to Science," arranged by Donald Goldsmith of the State University of New York at Stony Brook ...
227. Focus [SIS C&C Review $]
... bring the major issues in the debate to the attention of a wider audience, with qualified speakers on both sides. One section of the programme will consider the astronomical basis of Egyptian chronology and another the evidence of radiocarbon dates. A consideration of the implications for celestial mechanics is also likely to be included. The Society is assisting with preparations for the Conference, and speakers will include a number whose names are already familiar to members of the Society and readers of its Review, as well as scholars from British universities. Dr. Velikovsky has expressed his intention to participate, and invitations have also been extended to other American researchers. Cost of attendance (including the conference fee of £6.00) is £12.00 for lunch and refreshments only; £16.00 for all meals; or £24.00 ($ 45.00) for full board and lodging. Those wishing to attend should send their name and address and an indication of status, together with the conference fee, to the Enrolment Secretary, University of Glasgow, Department of Extra-Mural and Adult Education, 57/61 ...
228. Notices [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. I No. 4 (Winter 1976) Home¦ Issue Contents Notices On December 5, 1975, at the Nassau Inn in Princeton, N.J., Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky was honored at a formal dinner commemorating the twenty-fifth anniversary of the publication of Worlds in Collision. Though the actual initial appearance of Worlds in Collision occurred on April 3, 1950, the official tribute was deliberately postponed in order to allow willing contributors the time to complete a series of honorific essays for the occasion. The result has been a unique Anthology of twenty-two essays devoted to the person and theories of Immanuel Velikovsky. The entire project, which was supervised under the editorial auspices of Prof. Robert H. Hewsen with the assistance of Professors Lewis M. Greenberg and Warner B. Sizemore, was sponsored by the Center for Velikovskian and Interdisciplinary Studies, Glassboro State College, Glassboro, New Jersey. It is the eventual hope of the Center to be able to publish the Anthology in part or in toto so as to make it available to the general ...
229. Some Notes on the Revised Chronology (part two) [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 3 No 3 (Jan 1981) Home¦ Issue Contents Some Notes on the Revised Chronology (part two) Lester J. Mitcham 7). Velikovsky has not yet published his views on the problem of the 14th century Ashuruballit I being a correspondent of the 9th century Amarna Pharaohs (see Peter James: "Some Notes on the Ashuruballit Problem", SIS REVIEW IV:I, p.18-22- Ed.). Courville, in noting a genealogical discrepancy involved in accepting the 14th century Assyrian king of this name as the author of these letters, breaks off in his quote from Luckenbill, just short of the explanation regarding Assur-nadin-ahe. The placement of this king in relationship to Ashuruballit is clarified by Poebel, whereas if we accept Courville's proposal that Ashuruballit may have been "a prince son of Shalmaneser III" then we have no Assur-nadin-ahe anywhere in his immediate ancestry. Velikovsky sees the Babylonian Burnaburiash as the "alter ego of Shalmaneser the Assyrian"- a most unlikely explanation, in view of Shalmaneser's own archives and Burnaburiash's request ...
230. In Memoriam: Immanuel Velikovsky, Livio Stecchini and Ralph Juergens [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History II:2 (Jun 1980) Home¦ Issue Contents In Memoriam: Immanuel Velikovsky, Livio Stecchini and Ralph Juergens Immanuel Velikovsky Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky died last November. Unlike his friends Albert Einstein and Sigmund Freud, Dr. Velikovsky went to his grave deprived of plaudits from his peers. It is my belief that he was, indeed, the last true Renaissance man: his genius will be recognized after his death even more than the famous painters of the nineteenth century. Of course, Dr. Velikovsky's problem, more than innovative painters, was that he too was far ahead of his time. It is hard to pick out his greatest achievements. Here are five of them: The academic world in the twentieth century has been departmentalizing itself and overspecializing to the point where myopic problem solving is the rule. Dr. Velikovsky helped to establish a different point of view, that of interdisciplinary study. His work in this field cannot be overestimated. Universities around the world are slowly, ever so slowly, realizing that ...
