181. A new synthesis: Prolegomena (The Atlantis Myth) [Books]
... world that existed long ago. The traditions of mankind are of the nature of factual prehistoric records. A comparison with Hoerbiger's theory shows there is no need to decry the `accuracy' of these reports. Though they were transmitted by word of mouth over vast gulfs of time they surely are in no way less `accurate' than historical writing in general is nowadays. Thus in the Atlantis myth, I contend, there is presented to us a page from the actual history of man in a certain part of the world. Plato did not draw his Atlantis passages from his own imagination, nor did Solon, nor the Egyptian priests. The inventor of the story would have ...
182. "Just Plainly Wrong": A Critique of Peter Huber (Second Installment) [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. IV No. 2 (Winter 1978) "Scientists Confront Scientists Who Confront Velikovsky" Home | Issue Contents "Just Plainly Wrong": A Critique of Peter Huber (Second Installment)Lynn E. Rose [Footnote: *ACKNOWDGEMENT. This entire critique of Huber draws very heavily upon joint research and writing done during the past seven years with Raymond C. Vaughan. This is especially true regarding the Ninsianna discussions (which appear in the present installment), but there is no section of the critique that has not benefitted from Vaughan's valuable corrections, clarifications, and suggested additions of further materials.] The first installment of this paper, dealing ...
183. A Fire not Blown [Books]
... Was a goat thought of as a ka-container? The German Kaefer is a beetle, and in Egypt the scarab was sacred. Scarab is another of the words based on the letters scr or sqr. THE THRESHOLD The Salii, Roman priests, performed a threshold dance [salio means I leap']. Livy, I:20, writes: "Salios ancilia ferre ac per urbem ire canentes carmina, cum tripudiis sollemnique saltatu Q-CD vol. 13, A Fire Not Blown, Ch. 16: The Dance 95 iussit". Numa ordered them to go through the city with the shields, with stamping and solemn leaps, singing songs. In Rome the Arval brothers, ...
184. The Comet Of Typhon, Part 1 Venus Ch.3 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... called a ball of fire." The visit of a disastrous comet, so many times referred to in this book, is told in plain words, not in disguise. However, I must find support for my assumption that the comet of the days of King Typhon was the comet of the days of the Exodus. I investigated the writings of the old chronographers, and in Cometographia of Hevelius (1668) I found references to the works of Calvisius, Helvicus, Herlicius, and Rockenbach, all of whom used manuscripts for the most part and not printed sources, as they lived only a little over one century after the invention of movable characters and the printing press. ...
185. Vox Populi [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon VI:6 (Dec 2001) Home | Issue Contents Vox Popvli Sailing Abreast of the Wind Peter L. Kiernan, from Verona, N. J., writes: The cover picture of AEON V:6 is a nightmare. The two boats are sailing in the trough. They are abeam to the heavy seas. I'll have to talk to A. G. Smith, the illustrator, about that. Ed. The Egyptian Horizon E. J. Bond, from Kingston, Ontario, writes: In response to my letter, expressing doubts about the quotations Ev Cochrane chose to illustrate his claim concerning Venus as Day Star being the Radiant Venus ...
... his image as a researcher. One scholar cannot be expected to locate every last paper related to a given subject, but since one very pertinent document was in the book being discussed and another was in the then only journal discussing the ideas of Velikovsky, an appropriate analysis of the "Venus Tablets" should have included a discussion of the writings of Velikovsky and Rose. Since it did not, all three will be mentioned here. Huber basically claims that if you leave out about 30 percent of the observations given in the tablets you can make them agree with what would be expected if no change had occurred in the solar system. No doubt some of the data in the ...
187. A CRITICAL RE-APPRAISAL OF THE BOOK OF GENESIS [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... , or do the latter owe a debt to the Hebrews? Well, we are interested only in the book of Genesis at this stage, and so our question can be more specific: which are the more ancient, the accounts of Creation, the Fall, the Flood, Babel, etc. in the Mesopotamian and/or Egyptian writings, or those in the book of Genesis? We think that our synthesis at least can show that Genesis is far more ancient than hitherto has been suggested by modern commentators. However, as those assisting in a revision of ancient chronologies would appreciate, a full scientific answer to this question cannot be given until a complete and accurate revision ...
188. "How You Misjudge Me". File I (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... 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. Gorden A. Atwater that two communications to Dr. Velikovsky's publishers ...
189. Towards a new Evolutionary Synthesis [Journals] [SIS Review]
... evolution is changed [2-4]. To discuss evolution without considering mass extinctions is like discussing the history of the twentieth century without mentioning the two world wars. Complications The same Ledyard Stebbins is also a contributor to Perspectives on Evolution [5 ]; indeed, he is the author of the opening chapter, at the conclusion of which he writes, "Evolutionary biology is so complex that attempts in the near future to build syntheses around the framework of rigid, all-inclusive generalizations or laws will continue to be self-defeating and will lead to disputes and confrontations that generate more heat than light." That is rather different in tone from anything in Darwin to DNA, Molecules to Humanity, ...
190. A Return to the Two Sargons and Their Successors [Journals] [Aeon]
... from him concerning my own criticism of his work. Granted, more recently, Heinsohn has more than once asserted on the electronic internet that he had "answered Cardona" in some German publication, but is that where a "reply to Cardona," if that is what it really is, should have been published? I did not write my critique in German, nor did I publish it in a German publication. I published it in English in an English publication. Any "answer to Cardona" by Heinsohn should rightly have been offered for publication in the same journal in which the criticism appeared. At worst, Heinsohn should at least have sent me a copy of ...
