... From "Beyond Velikovsky" © 1984 by Henry H. Baue | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Means of Persuasion Christians have burnt each other, quite persuaded That all the Apostles would have done as they did.-Lord Byron Shades of Meaning Commonly in arguments one wants to win: not infrequently, to win irrespective of the means that might become necessary (limits being set variously by different people; knives and guns are still regarded as the natural means in some places, including some parts of the United States). In the Velikovsky affair a wide variety of verbal weaponry was used: innuendo, implication, misleading statement, misquotation or misinterpretation or misrepresentation of the opponent ...

Much later, in a letter to Pensee, Francis went further: after checking Velikovsky's sources and finding his evidence satisfactory, he came to the conclusion, like Velikovsky, that " ...

33. Remembering Velikovsky [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon IV:2 (Aug 1995) Home | Issue Contents Remembering Velikovsky Martin Sieff Lynn Rose has stated that, in the future, our era may well become known as the Age of Velikovsky, a prediction that must seem as ridiculous to most people as one given in Vienna in 1900 to the effect that we were then entering the Freudian Age, or of a statement in 1920s Prague that we had entered the Age of Kafka. To those deeply familiar with the scope and quality of Immanuel Velikovsky's achievements, however, the prediction is neither absurd nor a joke. What, instead, seems awesome is the degree to which Velikovsky's work appears to have been ...

34. The Velikovsky Archive [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon VI:6 (Dec 2001) Home | Issue Contents The Velikovsky Archive Jan Sammer NOTE: This paper was first read at the Conference held at the University of Bergamo, Italy, in honor of the 50th anniversary of Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision, in October 2001. When I first came to work for Immanuel Velikovsky as his assistant twenty-five years ago in the summer of 1976, one of the first things he did was to show me a dark-red three-ring file entitled "All Books." The first page of that file contained a list of all the books Velikovsky had still intended to write and publish. For a man who had just turned eighty-one, ...

... From "Beyond Velikovsky" © 1984 by Henry H. Baue | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Blundering Critics Why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?-St. Matthew In retrospect, it seems clear that Velikovsky's critics did not grasp the magnitude- or perhaps even the nature- of the task of discrediting Velikovsky in the eyes of the public at large. Academics in general, and perhaps scientists in particular, tend to lead lives that are notably sheltered from contact with other people than fellow academics and the industrial and governmental scientists and administrators who impinge on academia. Scholars rarely have special ...

... From "Beyond Velikovsky" © 1984 by Henry H. Baue | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Some Realities about Science He had been eight years upon a pi oject for extracting sunbeams out of cucumbers, which were to be put into phials hermetically sealed, and let out to warm the air in inclement summers.-Jonathan Swift The Velikovsky affair demonstrates that misconceptions about science are held not only by nonscientists but also by scientists. Although some aspects of scientific activity inevitably become familiar to those who practice it, scientists commonly are very unself-conscious about the assumptions underlying their actions and about the philosophic implications of their modes of procedure. The question "What is scientific truth?" ...

37. VELIKOVSKY AND OEDIPUS [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon I:6 (1988) Home | Issue Contents Velikovsky And Oedipus Ev Cochrane It is well-known that Velikovsky first came to America to pursue research with regard to a project on Freud's heroes: Moses, Oedipus, and Akhnaton.(1 ) As a direct result of this research Velikovsky was led to revolutionary new insights concerning the recent history of our solar system, as well as a reconstruction and synchronisation of the ancient histories of the Near East. What is less well known is that Velikovsky's inspiration for this study came, at least in part, from his indignation over Freud's treatment of Moses in Moses and Monotheism. Velikovsky published Oedipus and Akhnaton in 1960 ...

This is even admitted by people who oppose Velikovsky's ideas. They further claim that the irrationality has stopped, but unfortunately this is not so. In this chapter, some recent events in the Velikovsky affair will be discussed, and several possible causes of the attitudes ...

[Most] scientists agree that a theory that predicts something that has not yet been observed is science. Such a theory is falsifiable because it may predict something that then cannot be found, or is shown not to exist, or when found, does not accord with the prediction. On the other hand, its approximation of truth increases with each new discovery that ...
