... From "Beyond Velikovsky" © 1984 by Henry H. Baue | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Accomplices to Belief (Missing text) 1 8o Beyond Velikovsky ity, for the inhuman shepherd-conquerors was revived: the Jews were identified with the descendants of the Hyksos. Inaugurated by Manetho, an extensive Jew-baiting literature followed.... The Israelites endured much suffering from this distortion of history. They bore their pain for being identified with the Hyksos. The persecution started with the misstatements of Manetho, the Egyptian, whose nation was freed from the Hyksos by the Jews. In later years anti-Semitism has been fed from many other sources. [~ 10:95- 98] Manetho ...
53. Dr Immanuel Velikovsky TRIBUTES [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Review Vol IV No 4 (Spring 1980) Home | Issue Contents Dr Immanuel Velikovsky TRIBUTES The last issue of SIS Review carried an extended appreciation of Dr Velikovsky's life and work by his friend and associate, Dr Alfred de Grazia. We are proud to be able to complement his words with the following selection of tributes from scientists, scholars and students of his work throughout the world, collected in the months after his death. We feel that these are ample testimony to the effect of his writings, whose influence is certain to endure far beyond Dr Velikovsky's own lifetime. Immanuel Velikovsky. Photography by C. Leroy Ellebberger "There is no true achievement in ...
54. Rejoinder to Velikovsky [Journals] [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 4 No 5: (Winter 1974-75) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered X" Home | Issue Contents Rejoinder to Velikovsky William H. Stiebing, Jr.PALESTINIAN STRATIGRAPHY AND THE REVISED CHRONOLOGY Dr. Stiebing is Associate Professor of History, University of New Orleans. In the Winter, 1973-74 issue of Pensee (pp. 38-42), Immanuel Velikovsky replied to my criticism of his revised chronology (Pensee, Fall, 1973, pp. 10-12). However, his reply contained so many misunderstandings and misstatements that I feel constrained to make the following comments. First of all, Velikovsky seems to misunderstand the methodology of modern archaeology, at least in regard ...
55. Velikovsky And Planetary Catastrophe [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1997:1 (Sep 1997) Home | Issue Contents Thoth Vol I, No. 15. June 7, 1997 Velikovsky And Planetary Catastrophe By David Talbott (email@example.com) In confronting the strange consistency of planetary mythology one must ultimately ask the question asked more than 45 years ago by Immanuel Velikovsky, author of World in Collision. At the heart of Velikovsky's controversial thesis was a seemingly outrageous idea. He claimed that planets, moving on quite different courses than observed today, formerly disturbed the motions of the Earth and caused great destruction to ancient nations. These extraordinary events, Velikovsky claimed, are recorded in ancient chronicles, ...
56. Velikovsky and the El-Amarna period [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2002:2 (Feb 2003) Home | Issue Contents Velikovsky and the El-Amarna period Sjef van Asten Summary A combination of Velikovsky's thesis, the Glasgow Chronology' and the studies of Gunnar Heinsohn indicate that the El-Amarna period can be placed in the 7th century BC. The data from these chronologies are supported by additional arguments from Egyptian and biblical history and from Greek legends and point to about 680BC for the end of the El-Amarna period. Although some fine-tuning is required, the final conclusions do not contradict previous studies on Assyrian history, indicating the end of this period at the end of the 8th century BC. Introduction Conventional history places the ...
57. THE VELIKOVSKY AFFAIR [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon II:6 (1991) Home | Issue Contents The Velikovsky Affair (1 ) Henry H. Bauer The Velikovsky Affair began in 1950. In April of that year, Worlds in Collision by Immanuel Velikovsky was published by Macmillan, a firm with a high reputation for both its textbooks and its trade books. Worlds in Collision was advertised lavishly and sensationally and it quickly became a best-seller. Most reviews in newspapers and popular magazines followed the lead given by the advertisements: the book was highly original, a tour de force in history and science, a challenge to conventional ideas, a work in the tradition of Galileo, Newton, Darwin, and Einstein ...
58. Asimov's Guide to the Velikovsky Affair [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. VI No. 4 (Summer 1981) Home | Issue Contents KRONIKLES Asimov's Guide to the Velikovsky Affair Ralph E. Juergens Editor's Note: This article was first written in mid-1977 to be part of an, as yet, unpublished larger work. It should be noted that the title of Asimov's article in Analog was "CP", a substitute, in the misdirected interest of civility, for "crackpot". This article by Juergens is a fitting complement to Frederic B. Jueneman's "pc" which appeared in the third issue of KRONOS (I :3 ), pp. 73-83.- LMG As Carl Sagan sees it, there's a ...

He seems to be one of our most erudite charlatans." Harlow Shapley in a letter (July 2, 1967) to Albert Burgstahler "All professional astronomers consider Velikovsky a fraud. Can't you find a reputable subject for your research paper?" Harlow Shapley in a letter (March 8, 1969) to Katherine Lindeman. Editor's Note: Many writers have commented on the furor provoked by the publication of Velikovsky's ...
60. Propaganda And Scientific History [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... CONTENTS From: The Velikovskian Vol. V, No. 1 PROPAGANDA AND SCIENTIFIC HISTORY CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS AND THE FLAT EARTH IMMANUEL VELIKOVSKY AND CARL SAGAN By Charles Ginenthal The following discussion regarding Christopher Columbus and the flat Earth is almost all derived from Jeffrey Burton Russell's Inventing the Flat Earth, Columbus And Modern Historians. Noam Chomsky, considered one of the finest intellects of our time in his writings and on television, 1 has presented the view that in a democracy, where military violence is forbidden in silencing opposition to those in power, propaganda becomes the weapon by which to stifle dissent. He is an outspoken critic of the press in the United States and has thoroughly exposed how ...
