... once more approach .its sacred precinct seven if forbidden to enter, what an exquisite experience it must have been to the lonely spirit of that great explorer! It is his third voyage. He is in the Gulf of Pariato the north or north-west of the mouth of the Orinoco. In his loyal epistle to Ferdinand and Isabella thus he writes: The Holy Scriptures record that our Lord made the earthly Paradise and planted in it the tree of life; and thence springs a fountain from which the four principal rivers of the world take their source; namely, the Ganges in India, the Tigris and Euphrates, and the Nile. I do not find, nor ever have ...
22. Paradigm Lost? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... (Aug 1993) Home | Issue Contents REVIEWS Paradigm Lost?The Facts of Life by R.Milton (Fourth Estate, London, 1992) Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors by C.Sagan and A.Druyan (Century, London, 1992). It is a fair generalisation to say that the first priority of a journalist is to write something which will catch and hold the attention of the reader, with meticulous attention to detail being a lesser consideration. Conversely, articles and books written by scientists are often, with justification, regarded as being boring, ignoring the overall pattern of the wood to concentrate on detailed descriptions of a few individual trees. The scientist is likely ...
23. Conclusion (Carl Sagan & Immanuel Velikovsky) [Books]
... knowledge and understanding of science have no need to resort to such tactics. Sagan stated only in Broca's Brain, p. 127, "In the entire Velikovsky affair, the only aspect worse than the shoddy, ignorant and doctrinaire approach of Velikovsky and many of his supporters was the disgraceful attempt by some who call themselves scientists to suppress his writings. For this, the entire scientific enterprise has suffered... Scientists are supposed to know better, to realize that ideas will be judged on their merits if we permit free inquiry and vigorous debate." True, Sagan did not join with those who tried to suppress Velikovsky's work; instead he presented distortions of Velikovsky's statements and ...
... not much to be said here to the reader. This theory of the Earth may be called Sacred because it is not the common Physiology of the earth, or of the bodies that compose it, but respects only the great Turns of Fate, end the revolutions of our natural World; such as are taken notice of in the Sacred writings, and are truly the Hinges upon which the Providence of this earth moves; or whereby it opens and' shuts the several successive scenes whereof it is made up. This English Edition is the same in substance as the Latin version though I confess it is not so properly a translation, as a new composition upon the same ground ...
25. Resurrecting Genesis: Displacing the Failed Theory of Naturalistic Evolution, by John R. Hadd (Book Review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... goal(s ) of educational reform, reached in chapter 6: throughout chapters 2 to 5, he interweaves his interpretations of the biblical record and factual evidence which challenges Darwinian theory. Hadd initially identifies four Competing Interpretations' to explain Earth's record of life – those of fundamentalist creationists, materialistic evolutionists, theistic evolutionists and progressive creationists. He writes as though his criticisms of the first three in some way substantiate his belief in progressive creationism. Those who see some merit in each of the four interpretations, but do not wholly subscribe to any of them, will find that Hadd's absolutist belief in his own interpretation of the biblical record makes his text less readable, and his argument ...
26. Preface to the War of the Jews [Books]
... were not concerned in the affairs themselves have gotten together vain and contradictory stories by hearsay, and have written them down after a sophistical manner; and while those that were there present have given false accounts of things, and this either out of a humor of flattery to the Romans, or of hatred towards the Jews; and while their writings contain sometimes accusations, and sometimes encomiums, but no where the accurate truth of the facts; I have proposed to myself, for the sake of such as live under the government of the Romans, to translate those books into the Greek tongue, which I formerly composed in the language of our country, and sent to the Upper ...
27. A Harbinger of the Exodus? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... emerged in the book Oedipus and Akhnaton [1 ]. But although two of his other books - Worlds in Collision and Ages in Chaos - treat the Exodus in some detail, they barely mention Moses. Accepting Irving Wolfe's thesis [2 ] that Freud's book Moses and Monotheism angered Velikovsky, one might expect that he would use his own writings - presenting his catastrophic interpretation of the Exodus - to bolster the case for Moses as a Jew, and monotheism as a Jewish concept. But his published works contain no such case, and there has been no indication of such material in his archives. Why not? Velikovsky's reasons are not known and this paper does not speculate on ...
28. The Celestial Ship of North Vol II [Books]
... first revolutions in the ark of the sphere became seven celestial personages in an ark that voyaged round the cycle of precession once in 25,868 years, which period they were fabled to fulfil by being continually reborn as men whose lifetime was reckoned at seventy-one or seventy-two years each. Gerald Massey, in his Book of the Beginnings,5 writes most interestingly of that which he calls a precious allegory of a primitive creation, which was found on an inscription in a tomb of Seti the First in the so-called "Chamber of the Cow," and which is a portion of the Books of the Prophets, or Horoscopus. It is an allegory concerning Ra the Sun and the ...
29. New Fashions in Catastrophism [Books] [de Grazia books]
... I have left too much for the last mile." Too many interruptions, many of his own causing: too many projects, too. At least he has gotten reliable Juergens to edit his "Ten Trials" for publication [it never happened]. We talked of Livio Stecchini who is working on ancient measures and geography. His writing may never see the light. Why? "He cannot bring things to fruition," I said. "The idea is hard," said V., the inception." I added "The conception." "The conception is a pleasure, the birth is painful," said V. and he left it at ...
30. The Papyrus Ipuwer, Egyptian Version Of The Plagues - A New Perspective [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... The Papyrus Ipuwer was one of the most important documents in the history of the world's early literature. It was, so far as we know, the first true example of free speech in the ancient totalitarian world, and it was a type of Messianic prophecy at a time of national crisis. Many authors have referred to it in their writings and listed it in their handbooks and encyclopedias, but few have truly understood what it really was. Of those who did, the American James Henry Breasted and the German Adolf Erman studied it the most. And it was Velikovsky who first viewed it in the light of its place in Hebrew history by its relation to the Exodus of ...
