231. Historical Supplement [The Age of Velikovsky] [The Age of Velikovsky] [Books]
... Title Page¦ Ch. 1¦ Ch. 2¦ Ch. 3¦ Ch. 4¦ Ch. 5¦ Ch. 6¦ Ch. 7¦ Ch. 8¦ Ch. 9¦ Appendix¦ Notes The Age of Velikovsky Historical Supplement OEDIPUS OR AKHNATON? In 1960 Velikovsky published Oedipus and Akhnaton which was based on research that was done when he first came to the United States in 1939. This work had been set aside when the clues that eventually led to the publication of Ages in Chaos and Worlds in Collision were discovered. In Oedipus and Akhnaton, Velikovsky identified the legendary character, Oedipus, as the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhnaton and suggested that the so called Oedipus legend was not a legend, but possibly the life-story of Akhnaton as told by the Greeks. This work is almost totally independent of Velikovsky's other books. There is one major connection to Ages in Chaos and perhaps a minor connection to Worlds in Collision the latter being, that, if the equation is valid, it is one more indication that many of the ancient legends ...

... Title Page¦ Ch. 1¦ Ch. 2¦ Ch. 3¦ Ch. 4¦ Ch. 5¦ Ch. 6¦ Ch. 7¦ Ch. 8¦ Ch. 9¦ Appendix¦ Notes The Age of Velikovsky Appendices APPENDIX 1A There are historical indications that the Sun once rose in the west. Some of them are not vague and do not need interpretations for this result. In fact just the opposite is true. They need to be interpreted if you do not want them to say the Sun rose in the west. Egyptian sources make it clear that the Sun rose where he now sets", and "set where he now rises". About the complete quote Velikovsky said: "This passage has been the subject of exhaustive commentaries, the authors of which tried to invent every possible explanation of the phenomenon, but failed to consider the meaning which was plainly stated by the priests of Egypt and their efforts through the centuries have remained fruitless". 1 The Egyptians also had a name Harakhte, for the western ...
233. Confessions of a Cenoist [Aeon Journal $]
... you Cenoist charlatan!" "What about cloning, you neo-Darwinian scoundrel!" The final barb I fling at scientific-dating magicians is aimed at their arrogant certitude. The main ingredient in my potion is time. Until fifty years ago, scientific dating methods were marginal. Radiocarbon dating, the granddad of them all, originated in a 1952 paper by De Vries& Barendsen-- "A New Technique for the Measurement of Age by Radiocarbon." In my view, scientific dating has yet to pass the test of time. Immanuel Velikovsky welcomed "time" as an ally that would vindicate him in his battle against the scientific establishment. In later editions of his books, he made a point of "not altering a single word" so that future generations could judge the merit of his ideas without the confusion inherent in "what did he say and when did he say it?" In this respect, he was more seer than scientist who, ideally, adjusts theory to fit new evidence. Velikovsky would rather fight for his ideas than revise them. ...
234. A Technical Note [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... A Technical Note I have been asked by the compliers of the Velikovsky archive to briefly explain the present condition of Velikovsky ? s unpublished manuscript entitled The Dark Age of Greece. Velikovsky worked on the manuscript of The Dark Age of Greece fairly intensively during the last years of his life, drawing in part on the library research of Edwin Schorr, a graduate student at the University of Cincinnati, whom he employed for this pupose in Princeton for several summers in a row in the mid-seventies. Readers of Pensée know Schorr under his nom de plume Israel M. Isaacson, which he used to protect himself from the wrath of his professors at Cincinnati. At the time that I began to work for Velikovsky in 1976, the manuscript was still ? work in progress.? While Velikovsky was writing and rewriting the main text, my task was to annotate the material, drawing in part on the voluminous notes and photocopies of articles prepared by Schorr and partly on my own research. In addition, Velikovsky and I co-authored certain sections; others, written solely by ...
235. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Christoph Marx Schulstrasse 17 4436 Oberdorf, March 12, 1978 Tel. 061 97 91 88 Mrs. E. Velikovsky 78 Hartley Avenue Princeton, N.J. 08540 U. S. A. Dear Mrs. Velikovsky, I have read your letter of March 1 carefully, coming to the conclusion that in fact you wish to terminate the agreement your husband had proposed and I had accepted on my visit of last year: whereby I am to negotiate, to conclude and to secure contracts, at good pace, for the publication of Velikovsky ? s works in non-English speaking countries, especially on the Continent. It was obviously understood that the very nature of this business would demand my long-term involvement, this also being reflected in some further directions I received from Velikovsky. Equally obvious is the delegation of wide powers to conduct this business according to my own judgement along the guiding thoughts that Velikovsky had explained to me in our daily discussions (which I noted down at the time), including many details as well as general information. We shook hands on this ...

239. William H. Stiebing, Jr., and Immanuel Velikovsky [The Velikovskian $]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 1 No 2 (1993) Home¦ Issue Contents William H. Stiebing, Jr., and Immanuel Velikovsky Charles Ginenthal Velikovsky has had a great number of vocal critics over the past few decades who have raised many points of negative evidence regarding recent celestial catastrophism. One of them is Professor William H. Stiebing, Jr., a teacher of ancient history and archeology, since 1967, at the University of New Orleans, where he is presently a Professor of History. In 1984, he presented an attack on Velikovsky's theoretical scenario that, so far as I know, has not been analyzed. (1) Since this criticism was presented this past year in modified form, it surely deserves an appraisal of its contents. Often, works like those of Stiebing are presented to the public in magazine advertisements such as those in Mercury, leaving the impression that such critiques are correct and balanced when in fact they are neither. For his evidence, Stiebing has chosen to call upon Carl Sagan's work and that of others who ...
240. The Nature and Scale of an Exodus Catastrophe Reassessed [SIS C&C Review $]
... a member of the solar system- a new comet- came very close to the earth. "... Mountains fell and others rose from level ground; the earth with its oceans and continents became heated; the sea boiled in many places and rock liquefied; volcanoes ignited and forests burned. "The length of the day altered; the polar regions shifted, the polar ice became displaced into moderate latitudes, and other regions moved into the polar circles." In these and other passages in Worlds in Collision, Immanuel Velikovsky boldly sketched the cosmic drama which he believed engulfed the Earth in the 15th century BC (Velikovsky 1950: 60, 55, 361). The Old Testament provides one of the many sources from which Velikovsky sought to reconstruct this drama. The traditions of Israel's origins in the events of the Exodus, the crossing of the sea, the Sinai wanderings, and the conquest of Canaan are of crucial importance to his argument. Indeed, I do not think it would be an exaggeration to say that the biblical traditions provide the ...
