101. Vox Popvli [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:3 (Dec 1998) Home | Issue Contents Vox Popvli More Kudos David Davis, from York, England, writes: Got my first-ever copy of AEON the other day (courtesy of Amy Acheson). Just thought I'd tell you I was quite impressed with the production values: good layout, lots of pictures- which might sound odd as a compliment to a scholarly journal, but, in my opinion, a good presentation is pretty much as important as good ideas- and good articles, too, of course. Plus a nice shiny red cover. Glad to finally be a subscriber. One of these days, soon, I'll scrape ...
102. Conclusion [Books] [de Grazia books]
... , sevens, and seventies, for example; the repetition of words for emphasis; the use of expressions of salvation and deliverance in the 3rd episode of Moses in Midian, and so forth [3 ]. THE LIMITS OF DISTORTION There was a major difference, however, between the Exodus and other epic accounts. The Exodus began in writing, under the authorship and direction of Moses, then was carried by epic tradition in oral form, and then was revived in written form in the tenth century at which time there was no Homer to reassemble it. So it came together afterwards piece by piece for five hundred years, as sacred history and in writing. In inception ...
103. The Newton Affair [Journals] [Kronos]
... thought, and which instead would become poignantly significant if related to the contents of the work classified as uncanonical. The few who have tried to throw light on Newton's full scientific personality have been given by the upholders of Newtonianism the kind of welcome that is granted by orthodox Christians to nonsectarian historians of early Christianity. The massive censoring of Newton's writings has been justified in terms of pious respect for a man who was not only a genius but also insane, or at least mentally deranged. Newton is quoted as an accepted example for this theory by Lombroso in his famous book Genius and Insanity. The theory of Newton's insanity keeps turning up again and again as a bad coin in ...
104. Mercury and the Tower of Babel [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... ) Monkeys and Apes Mars, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn were associated by ancient peoples with various birds and beasts: similarly with Mercury. The Gauls associated Mercury with the goat and the cock. Above all, Mercury was associated with monkeys or apes. Thoth of the Egyptians is depicted as an ape(5 ) and is associated with writing. Some sources identify Thoth with the Moon, due, probably, to the fact that Mercury assumed a crescent form on approaching the Earth.(6 ) Nebo of the Babylonians is, like Thoth, also a god of writing.(7 ) Ginzberg tells us that the survivors of the Babel disaster were transformed into apes. ...
105. Aftermath of the Trojan War [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... the Dark Ages were already present and had to be filled with facts. The invading Dorians constituted a colonization. Descendants of King Nestor of Pylos, the wise old king in Homer's works, went to Athens and later to Asia. After the leader Neileos, this migration is known as the colonization of Neileos. Diogenes Laertius writes that Thales, one of the first Greek philosophers, went from Boeotia to Miletus in that colonization. Augustine made Thales a contemporary of Romulus, who lived 754-715. The Eusebius-Hieronymus chronicle mentions Thales at years 747 and 640 and puts his death in 547. Velikovsky describes a connection between the tradition that Thales ...
106. Homo Schizo Meets God [Books] [de Grazia books]
... natural selection was simple, vague, and in line with what the secular person thought was his own idea. Now that his ideas are wearing out, the psychiatrists, methodologists, and philosophers have picked him to pieces. He was an uncertain person, never a fully convinced Darwinist. In the contemporary vein, R.C . Lewontin writes that "Darwin's work is filled with ambiguities, contradictions, and theoretical revisions." Velikovsky once pointed out that if Darwin had followed some of his own observations while on the voyage of the Beagle he would have become a catastrophist. He almost became a Lamarckian at one point, so fetching is it when one's own theory is indefinite ...
107. Chapter 13 Scythian Princes in the Royal Tombs of Ur [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... 18 306 VELIKOVSKIAN Vol. VI, Nos. 1, 2, 3 Whelton: "Gunnar [Heinsohn] went on record last week as saying he never made any such Sumerian/Scythian identification." Cardona: "What, then, about the source I sent you? It came from the horse's own mouth." Gunnar Heinsohn writes: "Just refer Dwardu [Cardona] to the 1998 Harvard/Yale poster text as my state of the art." Cardona: "And refer Heinsohn to his own words as they were published in Did the Sumerians and Akkadians Ever Exist? ' AEON I:2 (February 1988), p. 41. It's all ...
108. The Homeric Question [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1996:1 Home | Issue Contents The Homeric Question by Benny J. Peiser I have looked deeply into the question of Hesiod's date and Homer's, but it is no pleasure to me to write about it, being too aware of the extraordinary censoriousness of people in general, and most of all of those who have always opposed me in questions of poetry'. (Pausanias IX:30,3 ) The so-called Homeric Question', which has been hotly debated by scholars for many centuries, is one of the most controversial subjects in ancient history. Like critical research on the Hebrew Bible, research on Homer concerns ancient texts, ...
109. Solaria Binaria in Relation to Chaos and Creation [Books] [de Grazia books]
... Binaria, by Alfred De Grazia and Earl R. Milton Home | Issue Contents TECHNICAL NOTE E Solaria Binaria in Relation to Chaos and Creation In 1981, one of us (Alfred de Grazia) published Chaos and Creation, which presented the model of Solaria Binaria as part of a general theory of quantavolution. During the last years of its writing, he discussed first with Ralph Juergens and then with Earl Milton the idea of a book on the subject, that would establish it upon firmer foundations and raise it to a new conceptual plane. Juergens' direct participation had hardly begun when he died; but his encouragement and his writings were inspiring to both of us and so we ...
... edition having been exhausted, he had made arrangements for a new edition of this, his largest published work. Only about half the plates were finished at the time of his death, so that it became the duty of his daughters, Alice Vail Holloway and Lydia C. Vail, in whose possession he left all his published and unpublished writings, to carry on the work. This volume now goes before the public just as the author left it. Isaac X. Vail was essentially a student, modest and retiring in his nature, and with but little of the aggressiveness of either the propagandist or the man of business that would have pushed his views before the world. ...
