261. Forum [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... 1 (May 1985) Home¦ Issue Contents Forum Question from Bob Doorenbos: In the Rohl/James Chronology (item 19(c) on page 20 of WORKSHOP 5:2) it is argued that the 'Shishak' who gave his daughter to Solomon as a wife cannot have been Thutmose III as per Velikovsky's suggestion because Thutmose III did not reign long enough. On page 7 of WORKSHOP 5:3 this is again stressed by David Rohl in the reply to Jim Clarke's question. However, it was never suggested by Velikovsky, nor is it stated in the Bible, that the Shishak who sacked the Temple and 'Pharaoh', father-in-law of Solomon, were one and the same person. Velikovsky explicitly suggested Thutmose I as the father-in-law of Solomon and not Thutmose III (having proposed two pharaohs called Shishak in AGES IN CHAOS- Chapter III, page 104). There seems, therefore, to be no sense in arguing that the reign length of Thutmose III is a realistic objection to his identity with Shishak as per Velikovsky's scheme. And so, ...

263. Scientists support Velikovsky [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Newsletter 2 (Sep 1975) Home¦ Issue Contents Scientists support Velikovsky Dr C.J. Ransom Writing on the Velikovsky controversy in the August of 1963 issue of Harper's magazine, Eric Larrabee noted: "There is scarcely one of Velikovsky's central ideas- as long as it was taken separately and devoid of its implications- which has not since been propounded in all its seriousness by a scientist of repute". If this was true in 1963, it is all the more true today: the study of this situation which we reprint below first appeared in a bulletin issued recently by the Fort Worth Cosmos and Chronos group, a branch of Cosmos and Chronos group begun in Princeton in 1965 by Professor Harry H. Hess. It has been suggested that there is no quantitative support for the types of events postulated by Velikovsky in "Worlds in Collision" and his later writings. The following is presented to demonstrate that the scientific literature contains quantitative discussions which tend to support the possibility of the occurrence of the major events described by Velikovsky. These papers ...
264. Quartered At Yale [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. II No. 3 (Feb 1977) Home¦ Issue Contents Quartered At Yale Immanuel Velikovsky Copyright© 1977 by Immanuel Velikovsky "Quartered at Yale" is a section from the Memoirs to Worlds in Collision. The Memoirs, a documented history of the origin of Worlds in Collision and its reception from 1946 to 1953, was put together by Velikovsky in the fall of 1954, and is not published.*** Four Yale professors united their forces to disprove Worlds in Collision. Together they prepared an article for the American Journal of Science published at Yale. The editor, Professor Chester R. Longwell, himself a geologist and one of the four authors, arranged to have this article printed in the daily press, too, in advance of its appearance in the Journal. In the New Haven Register for June 25, 1950, the large blue letters of a six-column headline announced: "4 Yale Scholars 'Expose' Non-Fiction Best-Seller." The three other authors were K. S. Latourette, Sinologist, George Kubler, ...
265. Science-Fiction and Collective Amnesia: "Dragon's Egg" [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. VIII No. 1 (Fall 1982) Home¦ Issue Contents Science-Fiction and Collective Amnesia: "Dragon's Egg" Richard J. Jaarsma In Mankind in Amnesia, Immanuel Velikovsky suggests that writers of drama, fiction, and poetry sometimes unconsciously make explicit reference to the great natural catastrophes that, Velikovsky claims, have swept our planet in ancient historical times. He cites, as some examples, passages from Shakespeare, Byron, and Poe which describe not only the events themselves but the unbearable terror such events caused in those who were subjected to them.(1) Fiction, Velikovsky asserts, gives us a way of "handling", "tolerating", and "reliving" such catastrophes- safely, comfortably without mental or emotional chaos. Yet, one can go further than Velikovsky does by noting that, even where literature does not necessarily recall specific catastrophic events, much of literature has an inherent catastrophic structure. A look at plot in fiction, for instance, reveals that plot is itself an unconscious expression of terror and ...

267. Notes Concerning the "Outline of the 1st Millennium B.C. Following Immanuel Velikovsky's Reconstruction of Ancient History" [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 3 No 2: (Spring-Summer 1973) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered IV" Home¦ Issue Contents Notes Concerning the "Outline of the 1st Millennium B.C. Following Immanuel Velikovsky's Reconstruction of Ancient History" In setting out to construct a graphic chart of Immanuel Velikovsky's reconstruction of ancient history, I was fortunate in having read not only most of Velikovsky's published work: "Theses for the Reconstruction of Ancient History" (1945), Worlds in Collision (1950), Ages in Chaos, Volume 1 (1952), Earth in Upheaval (1955), and Oedipus and Akhnaton (1960), all of which were contained in the Sterling Memorial Library at Yale University, but much of his unpublished work as well, which included the remaining volumes of Ages in Chaos. Furthermore, I had the benefit of many hours of conversation with Velikovsky himself concerning this material. In the Ages in Chaos series, Velikovsky has rewritten the history of the ancient Middle East from the end of the Middle Kingdom of Egypt circa 1450 B.C. to ...
268. Indra [Kronos $]
... "Child of Saturn", Part III.(2) The conclusion was there reached that, with some reservations, Artur Isenberg had presented the best case when he equated the Mahadevi with the planet in question. But because "Child of Saturn" is devoted to Venus and Saturn, the proper identity of the Hindu Jupiter was left unaccounted for. In order to fill this void, I must rob Worlds In Collision of yet another identification. In that work, Indra is presented as the Hindu Mars.(3) Velikovsky based this identification on Indra's association with the host of minor deities known as the Maruts.(4) The connection of the Maruts with Mars was reached through a philological comparison. As Muller had earlier shown, the name Maruts (Marut, Maruta) shares a common etymological root with Mars (Martis).(5) This evidence has recently been strengthened by Sean Mewhinney who called attention to the fact that even in Hebrew the name of Mars (Kesil) has a plural form (Kesilim), thus resulting in ...
269. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... April 10, 1950 Dr. Harlow Shapley Harvard College Observatory Cambridge 38, Mass. Dear Harlow: I have delayed an answer to yours of March 8th until I could examine carefully some of the material to which your letter refers, and examine, as well, the circumstances under which it was written. You refer to Science News Letter and to Time Magazine as evidences of unfavorable views of Dr. Velikovsky ? s work coinciding with your own, but unless I mistake certain reasonably clear indications the chief inspiration for these adverse views stems from Dr. Harlow Shapley of the Harvard College Observatory! You note that you yourself are not writing anything in response to Dr. Velikovsky or Larrabee, and that, in fact, the only hot communication from you was your letter to me. On the other hand, Mrs. Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin ? s article was directly inspired by you, and I am informed by Mr. Gordon A. Atwater that two communications to Dr. Velikovsky ? s publishers. The Macmillan Company, from you, are so sizzling that ...
270. Horizons [SIS C&C Review $]
... , furry-pelted toddlers, encounters of the Third Kind, etc., etc.... For those who like a light-hearted but reliable look at errant reality F.T. cannot be too highly recommended. KRONOS, A Journal of Interdisciplinary Synthesis, c/o Prof. Warner Sizemore, Glassboro State College, Glassboro, N.J. 08028, U.S.A. 1 year (4 issues): $15.00; overseas $20.00 (airmail). The third issue of Volume IV was published last spring, and contains two pieces by DR VELIKOVSKY and a discussion by DWARDU CARDONA of two megalithic sites (Kintraw and Ballochroy) examined by our contributor EUAN MACKIE in his papers in Pensée, as well as an extended "Forum" and "Vox Populi" section where writers reply to comments from readers. Regrettably, Cardona's contribution appears to have been written under the impression that MacKie's articles were attempts to discredit Velikovsky, and is therefore marred by the treatment of any "concession" to Velikovsky as a damaging admission. Of Velikovsky's own papers, one, entitled "The ...
