1. Velikovsky's Sources Volume One [Books]
... manna failed to appear on the Sabbath (Ex.16:27) or that God sent quails as well as manna (Ex.16:l3) to the hungry Israelites. Next, V sees the pillar of cloud by day and pillar of fire by night as the Venus Comet itself, On WIC p.86, he writes: "The great ball of the comet retreated, then again approached the earth, shrouded in a dark column of gases which locked like a pillar of smoke during the day and of fire at night .. ." But there are several problems with this: (i ) Nowhere, either in Exodus or elsewhere (i . ...
2. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Two [Books]
... too were obviously associated events! In brief, it seems to me that the criterion of consecutive passages is no criterion at all. The rest of V's references to Herodotus are of minor importance, and I include them merely for the sake of completeness. They may be summarised as follows: (i ) OnWIC p.90, V writes: "According to Herodotus, the final act of the fight between Zeus and Typhon took place at Lake Serbon on the coastal route from Egypt to Palestine." V here refers to Herodotus iii.5 , Godley's translation of which reads thus: "Now the only manifest way of entry into Egypt is this. The road runs ...
3. Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning [Books]
... Book of the Kings, xxiii, 5. In the Babylonian Creation Legend, Epic of Creation, discovered by George Smith in 1872,2 the signs were Mizxita, a very similar word appears for the Milky Way, generally supposed to be the original of the biblical Mazzaroth ; Mazzileth being the form used in the Yarums and later Hebrew writings. This word, although of uncertain derivation, may come from a root meaning "to watch," the constellations thus marking the watches of the night by coming successively to the meridian; but Doctor Thomas Hyde,3 the learned translator at Oxford in 1665 of the Zj, or Tables, of Ulug Beg, and of Al ...
4. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Four [Books]
... am merely using one if' to prop up another one. Bob Forrest, Manchester. May 1982. Section 36. The Seven Tablets of Creation. We here refer to the book "The Seven Tablets of Creation", edited by L.W .King, 2 vols, London 1902. On WIC p.165, V writes: "Venus, with its glowing train, was a very brilliant body; it is therefore not strange that the Chaldeans described it as a bright torch of heaven." Again, on WIC p.170, V writes: "Athena's counterpart in the Assyro-Babylonian pantheon is Astarte (Ishtar) who shatters mountains, bright torch of ...
5. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Three [Books]
... an argument against their existence. It merely indicated that I lacked the proper sensitivity and training to tune into their vibrations. I never did find a good answer to that argument, but nevertheless I still do not believe in fairies. Bob Forrest Manchester, March 1982. Section 18. The Ermitage Papyrus. WIC p.114, V writes: In the Ermitage Papyrus (Leningrad, 1116b recto) also, reference is made to a catastrophe that turned the land upside down; happens that which never (yet) had happened'. V here refers to the "Cambridge Ancient History" (1923), vol.I , p.340- 346, and A ...
6. Flavius Josephus Against Apion Book 1 [Books]
... to us, and will not believe what I have written concerning the antiquity of our nation, while they take it for a plain sign that our nation is of a late date, because they are not so much as vouchsafed a bare mention by the most famous historiographers among the Grecians. I therefore have thought myself under an obligation to write somewhat briefly about these subjects, in order to convict those that reproach us of spite and voluntary falsehood, and to correct the ignorance of others, and withal to instruct all those who are desirous of knowing the truth of what great antiquity we really are. As for the witnesses whom I shall produce for the proof of what I ...
7. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Five [Books]
... the additional objection that on WIC p.102 V has this psalm referring to the events at Sinai, whereas the psalm itself does not even mention Sinai, directly or otherwise. As we saw above, these events' are associated with the enemies of David- long after the events of Sinai. On WIC p.99, V writes: "The earth, disturbed in its rotation, developed heat. The land surface became hot. Various sources of many peoples describe the melting of the earth' s surface and the boiling of the sea .. . Events underlying Greek and Mexican traditions are narrated in the Scriptures. The mountains shake with the swelling .. . ...

9. The Celestial Ship of North Vol. I [Books]
... constellations was called Cassiopia, the "Lady of the Seat." She can be seen sitting in a chair in the pictorial charts of the heavens. She was Queen of Ethiopia, our Biblical Kush, and this ancestral seat in the north, as a point of beginning, suggests Ethiopia as the first mystical birthplace. In the Hebrew writings Ethiopia, Rush and Zaba are convertible terms for the same country, the Egypt beyond Egypt, and combine with the "Za-be-ans from the Wilderness." - - Ez xxiii, 42. Kush and Ethiopia are both names of the North, where the constellation called The Thigh, the Matrix of the World, is found. At ...
10. Pompous Asimov [Books]
... or rebuttal. Yet, it is so misrepresentative of Velikovsky and his ideas that some retort is necessarily called for in order to set the record straight." (2 ) Engineer Frederic B. Jueneman published a counterattack in that same issue of KRONOS, which he called "PC." (3 ) (He had been invited to write an article about Velikovsky for Analog, called "The Search for Truth," and Asimov's piece "CP" appeared immediately after it). In Jueneman's opinion, Asimov's article is quite plainly "immoral . . . . A grievous wrong has been committed." (4 ) The picture of Velikovsky he presents "is an artifice ...
