Bible Statistics Misuse
Subject: Many sources list faulty statistics on the King James Bible.  Of course the number of books (66) and chapters (1,189) are fairly easy to count, however when it comes to verses, words and letters, there are a wide variety of numbers floating around. These statistics, themselves untrustworthy, have become the playground for abuse.

[12.]   Gospel's Events Sequence
Subject: We often order the telling of a journey by the impact and significance of the experiences.

Old Testament Allegories
Subject: It may be that not only is the Garden of Eden story an allegory, which may have been developed early by the Akkadian and Hebrew mythmakers, but this may have set the pattern in a larger sense for that which followed.

This would have been developed over centuries following the original allegorical model and of course the false sin-breeding paradigm.
The Bible as Word of God

Subject: Jesus is sometimes portrayed in the Gospel accounts as often withdrawing from earthly human contact and agonizingly praying throughout the night. Christians assume that he was seeking solace and strength from God to assuage his loneliness, disappointment and frustration in dealing with the people, disciples and others, with whom he was interacting. Can we understand this scenario in another, more appropriate and meaningful way?
Understanding Forgiveness

[27.]   Contrast of Believers
Subject: An extensive  list of major issues and how the true believer and the traditional believer differ in their attitude, approach and behavior.
Waiting for Godot
Subject: Samuel Beckett's acclaimed play is pretty clearly aimed at Christians waiting for the Lord to come and solve all of their problems.
Why God Waits
Subject: This is a direct challenge to the doctrine of the second Advent or coming.
Comments on Nicene Creed
Subject: Nicene Creed, the foundation for Greek and Roman Catholic, and general Orthodoxy is thought to be bedrock for Christendom.

Subject: An article that delineates some of the basic questions and issues that a proper theology must answer.
Empowerment versus Natural Law
Subject: A consideration of some kind of balance between the two in a healed reality, showing that having both is ideal.
The Traditional Advent Fallacious
   The collection of all the verses in the Gospels that are interpreted as to refer to the traditional Second Advent, including the key Greek words and commentary.
A study on "Take Up Your Cross"
Subject: This phrase has been badly translated and interpreted, and the article give good reasons for considering a much better understanding.
Rich Young Ruler Account
Subject: A completely new take on what transpired, what was offered, and what was missed.
Who WAS Jesus?
Subject: Jesus is not who and what you think!
Destiny of Man

[28.]   Christianity and Gnosticism
Subject: Some observations on the comparison of Christianity and Gnosticism, the other branch of religion that developed from the Jesus incident.
Gospel of Thomas is not Gnostic
Subject: Excellent quotes on why the conclusion that the Gospel of Thomas is Gnostic is a shallow one.
The Value of Idealism
   Why are we cursed with this syndrome of idealism and all but compelled to seek it or make it happen? Wouldn't it be good or efficacious to eliminate or at least subdue the influence of our idealism?  Idealism is the crux or the foundation for all that is good: for honesty, honor, courage, compassion, mercy, nobility, etc. Without the undergirding of idealism all of these virtues would be vitiated.
On Determinism and Foreknowledge
Subject: One of the most pernicious doctrines in Christian theology is the teaching that god knows everything down to the minutest detail that will ever happen in the future.
Why is God not More Involved?
   A frank look at the evidence that God is not significantly involved in the affairs of the world or Mankind.
Having a Consistent Theology
Subject: Highlighting some of the many inconsistencies of Christendom, and delineating a more consistent approach..
The Devil and Satan
Subject: Investigating the origin of the concepts of Satan, Iblis, Devil, Samael, etc., and showing that these concepts had their ground in ancient god-planetary catastrophe.

The One Ancient Story
Subject: A presentation and explanation of the universal story of the ancient peoples. A David Talbot article.
Avoiding Reductionism
Subject: Reductionism is the practice of assimilating more to a single theoretical principle than that principle can accommodate or explain. A David Talbot article on avoiding reductionist approaches to the Saturn Model
Patterns of Human Memory
Subject: When investigating events witnessed around the world, the patterns of human memory enable us to draw conclusions of a far more specific and dependable sort than could be obtained through physical evidence or physical theory in the absence of human testimony. A David Talbot article.
Science of Comparative Myth
Subject: The science and efficacy of the comparative mythology method is explained and supported.
Myth Reconstruction Ground Rules
Subject: A look at the substantial and reliable ground rules for reconstructing ancient events from multiple mythologies.

[30.]   The Meaning of Myth
Subject: It is well-known, in fact, that the earliest religions of Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Mesoamerica were characterized by a preoccupation with celestial phenomena. This article explores the meaning of this otherwise enigmatic aspect.
The Importance of Myth
Subject: An article by David Talbott explaining the importance of valid ancient myth interpretation for our understanding today.
Plausibility of Myth
Subject: An article by David Talbott putting the question of the plausibility of the interpretation of ancient myth into perspective.
Reliability of Myth as Witness
   In certain situations a simple comparison of human testimony can achieve exceptional reliability, even though the witnesses are not inherently trustworthy. In seeking to reconstruct ancient memories through cross-cultural comparison, we will discover a substructure of remarkable depth and coherence. The power of human memory is incomparably greater than scholars have typically assumed. A David Talbot article.
A case for Atlantis

[31.]   Myth as Foundation
Subject: At issue are two different ways of seeing myth. In one perception, myth is an outpouring of human imagination as humankind looked out at an ancient sky very much like our own. In the other perception, myth is an outpouring of imagination in response to extraordinary celestial events–earthshaking dramas unlike anything occurring in our sky today. The good news is that one can apply certain principles of reasoning to the patterns of human memory. Though these rules are employed all the time in judicial proceedings, the vast majority of scholars have ignored them. A David Talbot article.
From Myth to Model
Subject: The goal is not to expound upon purely theoretical models, but to reconstruct an unknown past on the basis of pervasive images and pictures-historical evidence that finds no reference in the natural order today. The logical focus is the human experience as recorded on papyrus, on clay, and on stone. Through comparative analysis and cross-referencing, one must seek out the observed patterns, for it is these patterns that provide the foundation of a systematic inquiry. A David Talbot article.

[32.]   Logic of Historical Evidence
Subject: In any theoretical exploration involving a new hypothesis, one question must be asked relentlessly: IF the hypothesis is correct, WHAT should we expect to find? That question is at the heart of the scientific method, whatever the field of inquiry. And the investigation must address the entire range of data bearing on the answer.  A David Talbot article.
Memories of Planetary Upheaval
Subject: In ancient literature the planetary gods are a quarrelsome lot–and often violent. Wars of the gods not only disturb the heavens but threaten to destroy humankind. The planets wield weapons of thunder and fire and stone. Their behavior is not only capricious and unpredictable, but dangerous to human health! A David Talbot article.
Natural References of Myth
Subject: The possibility that myth might reflect natural events no longer occurring simply does not, with few exceptions, enter the minds of modern scholars. However, despite many years of cross- cultural research, the author of this article has never found a general mythical theme that could find an explanation in our natural world. A David Talbot article.

[33.]   Myth Memory Patterns
Subject: When investigating events witnessed around the world, the patterns of human memory enable us to draw conclusions of a far more specific and dependable sort than could be obtained through physical evidence or physical theory in the absence of human testimony. Initially, almost no one will realize this. But to discover that this is indeed true, it is only necessary to follow the appropriate ground rules. The ground rules are designed to expose the substratum of memory beneath all of the regional fragments, enabling one to speak for the substratum with the highest level of confidence. A David Talbott article
Conjunction Themes
  The claim is that world mythology is nothing else than the story of the "Great Conjunction" of Saturn's epoch and what happened to it. Of hundreds of recurring mythical and symbolic motifs we have identified, not one can be isolated from the conjunction principle  A David Talbot article.
Mercury Mythology
Subject: When the ancient celestial order dissolved, every body seen in the sky was asked to play a role as SYMBOL of what was remembered but no longer present. A David Talbott article
Saturn-Venus Discussion
Subject: The Jewish religion, in its origins, aimed to put an end to planet-worship, especially of Saturn and Venus, who were worshipped together, and with it the universal practice of human sacrifice. The Jews were thus the first people to introduce the notion of an "invisible" god,
The World Mountain
Subject: An early article by David Talbott on the plausible explanation for the axis mundi to be seen as the world or cosmic mountain.

[34.]   Cosmic Symbol Development
  In their earliest expressions, kingship rites are overwhelmingly COMMEMORATIVE. The question is: in the distinctive, heavily documented rituals of kingship, what is being commemorated?  A David Talbot article.
Names of Suns & Planets
Subject: Who could deny that the best-known Jupiter figures are "born" from Saturn- figures, and are seen as the younger and triumphant forms of the father. Possible physical explanations for the sequence may vary, but the fundamental paternal relationship can't be denied. A David Talbot article.
The Golden Age
Subject: A global myth declares, with striking unanimity, that the world has not always been as it is experienced now. In a former time, man lived in a kind of paradise, close to the gods. It was the Golden Age. Throughout an eternal spring, the earth produced abundantly, free from the seasonal cycles of decay and rebirth. This recurring and unexplained myth was carried into modern times by primitive races the world over. A David Talbot article.
Golden Age Interview
Subject: These are the responses to questions about whether myth is exclusively celestial or both celestial and terrestrial, Dwardu Cardona and David Talbott posted these simultaneous and similar answers. They provide an insightful glimpse into the methodology of comparative mythology.
Revolving Crescent on Saturn

Subject: An early article by David Talbott showing that many threads of evidence lead to  unified conclusions.
KRONOS Journals
Subject: Links to the Table of Contents and the entire series of these foundational journals.

[35.]   Localizing of the Warrior-Hero
Subject: Wherever the processes of assimilation and localization have operated freely, given sufficient time, the warrior hero and mother goddess will have lost their cosmic character altogether. The vast majority of the heroic figures to which the modern researcher has access (such as the Greek Heracles, Odysseus, Perseus, Theseus and Oedipus), though still bigger than life, appear as extraordinary "humans" accomplishing their marvelous feats on earth. A David Talbott article.
Heroes of the Iliad
Subject: A David Talbott article about these heroes.
Sacrifice & Amnesia
Subject: An early article by David Talbott on the remembering and forgetting of the great catastrophe and the inception of sacrifice, including human and animal sacrifice.

Catastrophism Pioneers
Subject: There is a long list of scholars who have picked up the scent and followed the trail of ancient catastrophism and a radically different ancient world than what modern mythology would have us accept. This is a short list with bios of early catastrophists pioneers.
Variations on a Theme
Subject: A David Talbott article about myth variations but that are based on a common theme.

[36.]   A Unified Mythology Theory
Subject: Perhaps few claims made for the Saturn model will seem more outrageous than the assertion of a unified theory. But there was a mythmaking epoch of human history. It had a beginning and an end. A David Talbott article.
Thunderbolts-Myth & Symbol
Subject: The thunderbolt has a prominent and major role in ancient mythology, yet it was not earthly lightning in the sky but discharges interpreted as warring exchanges between the planetary gods of the heavens using their favorite weapon. A David Talbott article.
The Polar Thunderbolt
Subject: To see the divine thunderbolt's true role in world mythology, the sense of context provided by the polar alignmentl model will prove crucial. A David Talbott article.
Thundergods & Celestial Marvels
Subject: In ancient traditions, few images find more vivid expression than the great thunderbolts of the planetary gods. When the gods went to war, the heavens shook. Lightning sped between the planetary combatants as flaming weapons. A David Talbott article.
Thunderbolts of the Gods
Subject: Cross-cultural analysis will show that the mythic thunderbolt held a most prominent place in the imagination of all early civilizations. Typically, the ancient stories describe the gods hurling their weapon not against humanity, but against each other. A David Talbott article.
The Golden Age Myth
Subject: An early article by David Talbott offering some background notes on a few mythological themes that are integral to the historical argument of the Saturn theory.
Pensée Journal Issues
Subject: Links to the Table of Contents and the entire series of these foundational journals.

Science Categories: Geophysical

[37.]   Geological Issues
Origins of Modern Geological Theory
Subject: Indeed, what is extraordinary about the London Geological Society is that none of the original members were geologists. This is the group that introduced the pillars of modern Geological theory of gradualism, uniformism, and evolutionism. This was done clearly in an effort to defang the oppressive "moral" influence of the Church of England by discrediting creationism.
Origin of Grand Canyon I
Subject: The surface of the earth presents many problems for geologists, not the least of which is that the Grand Canyon is supposed to have been formed by the Colorado River. As recently as about a dozen and a half years ago geologists were working with four different and mutually exclusive models of the canyon's creation. At a special meeting they managed to winnow the four theories down to two–neither one of them satisfactory–with more than one reason to refute them both. One geologist noted that the only way the Colorado River could have carved the canyon is if it came out of the sky!

[38.]   Origin of Grand Canyon II
Subject: The Grand Canyon's tributaries are generally short with little evidence of the necessary water flowing into the ends from the high desert floor. The jagged tributaries are deeply cut and are characterized by nearly vertical walls. They join the main canyon at right angles, a distinctive sign of electric discharge phenomena.
Niagara Falls & Escarpment
   The Niagara Escarpment can be seen as being part of a larger system of electrical scarring. The articles details why the prevailing explanations are not valid.
Desertification of the Sahara
Subject: One of the most striking climate changes of the past 11,000 years caused the abrupt desertification of the Saharan and Arabia regions midway through that period. The resulting loss of the Sahara to agricultural pursuits may be an important reason that civilizations were founded along the valleys of the Nile, the Tigris, and the Euphrates. Green glass found in the Sahara and at Hadley's Rille on the Moon gives a clue. A Wal Thornhill article.

[39.]   Psycho-Catastrophe Material
Cosmology and Psychology
Subject: A groundbreaking article showing the source for ancient myth and religions was the planetary catastrophes that were ravaging the earth.
Phobia, Amnesia, and Psyche
Subject: An article dealing with collective amnesia induced the the ancient global catastrophes.

Myth and Mandala
Subject: An article exploring the connection to the ancient kingship-of-heaven to the mandala.
Schizo-World Destruction
Subject: A look at how prolonged trauma of cosmic catastrophe could produce psychological states which were strikingly similar to those which we classify today as catatonic schizophrenia.

[40.]   Velikovsky-New Science
Subject: In 1725 the first edition of The New Science of Giambattista Vico was published.  It was ignored for at least a hundred years, Vico insisted that, if a full history and understanding of man was to be known, the myths of earlier times ought to be taken seriously as themselves accounts of the actual history of those times. So also claims Velikovsky.
The Tao, the Way
Subject: A brief look at the modern denial of cosmic disorder and violence.

Six Great Enigmas with Ancient Civilizations
Subject: The proponents of ‘official’ history have taken an increasingly political and ideological approach to the issue of ancient civilizations and the surrounding enigmas.
Importance of Catastrophism
Subject: Up until the middl e of the 19th century, the thinking of civilization concerning the human past on earth was catastrophic. Then in England along came an anti-religious agenda, and with a concerted effort, it managed to replace catastrophism with gradualistic, uniformitarian and evolutionistic thinking in the halls of academia  Our world simply cannot be adequately understood without acceptance and familiarity with ancient planetary catastrophe.
Origin of Modern Geology
Subject: The group that formed the London Geological Society, none of which were geologists, had an unscientific agenda, an anti-religious one. This led to the formation of modern geology theory based on the introduction of gradualism, uniformism and evolutionism to contrast with Biblical creationism.

[42.]   Parable about Electromagnetism
Subject: A brief fable about not seeing the obvious based upon fish not beie of water. The fable applies to electromagnetism in understanding cosmology.
Modern Philosophy
Subject: According to Will Durant, after the explosion of scientific knowledge, "...philosophy Itself, which had once summoned all sciences to its aid in making a coherent image of the world and an alluring picture of the good, found its task of coordination too stupendous for its courage, ran away from all these battlefronts of truth, and hid itself in recondite and narrow lanes, timidly secure from the issues and responsibilities of life. Human knowledge had become too great for the human mind.
    All that remained was the scientific specialist, who knew "more and more about less and less," and the philosophical speculator, who knew less and less about more and more."
    The challenge for modern philosophy is to pick up the pieces and become relevant again.
Modern Reification
Subject: Reification is treating spiritual realities, mental constructs, descriptions and abstractions as if they were tangible or had the properties of material objects. The content identifies and dismisses the reification of nothing, time, space, magnetic field lines and energy.
The Religion of Scientism
Subject: A piercing look at the religion of Scientism and its adherents. This is now the world's largest and most influential religion, and it marginalizes all others.
Some Prominent Science Myths
Subject: Looking at a dozen major scientific myths that are holding back progress and a deeper understanding of our physical reality. A Ralph Juergens article.

[43.]   The Scientism Religion
Subject: True science leaves behind the automatic acceptance of truth that comes from authority, tradition, myth, merely creative and/or “god-inspired” sources. It embarks with the critical human faculties of rationality and logic on a pathway to lead us out of old superstitions and away to new truth, When science abandons valid epistemological and metaphysical principles.
The Great Pyramid
Subject: A candid look and review of the outstanding features of the Cheops pyramid that cannot be readily explained by our current understanding of ancient technology and capability.
Foreword-Pythagorus' Trousers
   Most cultures articulate their world picture through mythology or religion, but since the seventeenth century the Western world picture has been articulated through science, above all by physics. But physics has always been a quasi-religious activity.
Some Science Myths
Subject: The article lists a dozen major scientific myths that can be falsified. Relativity, light speed, universal constants, radiometric dating, redshift distance ratio, galactic rotation, internal nuclear fusion, impact craters, radioactive decay rate, absence of aether, and Anthropologically caused global warming and climate change:
Einstein Genius Myth
Subject: Einstein has been built up into a mythical genius figure, but the author of this article demolishes that conclusion, and claims that he took credit for and published other's work and ideas, that not one of the major contributions was his own.

[44.]   Talbott Article - The Saturn Myth
Subject: An introduction to the Saturnian Thesis or Reconstruction of ancient times and issues.
Framing ancient Saturn Worship
Subject: Looks at many diverse facets supporting what is called the Saturnian Reconstruction of the Golden Age of ancient times.
Talbott Article - Saturn Theory I
Subject: The historical argument focuses on "points of agreement" in the memories of widespread races, suggesting levels of coherence often missed by historians and anthropologists.
Talbott Article - Saturn Theory II
Subject: Unlike many competing catastrophist models, the "Saturn theory" involves explicit pictures showing "exactly" what we are proposing the ancients saw. And the claimed celestial images relate specifically to the positions of "planets" in the sky, planets that are "named". Moreover, the proposed celestial forms behave in an incredibly precise way.
Talbott Article - Saturn Theory III
Subject: Not a single theory proposed–before Velikovsky opened the door–will account for the archetypes, the bedrock of myth.
Talbott Article - Saturn Theory IV
Subject: How can the disparate threads of memory, expressed in seemingly contradictory symbols, through stories that are often barely intelligible, and in archaic words of uncertain meaning, ever provide a dependable guide for reconstructing cosmic events?
Talbott Article - Saturn Theory V
Subject: Dealing with the prevailing "Creation Myth", which is NOT challenging a creator of the universe.

[45.]   Lecture & Video Links
Subject: Links to articles and videos relating to time, space, aether, force fields, catastrophic cultural carryforward, and the EMP threat.
Velikovsky Biography
Subject: This is a short biography of Immanuel Velikovsky, reviewing how as  a practicing psychoanalyst and writing about Moses and monotheism he tumbled to the idea that there was a correlation between the Egyptian and Hebrew myth and an actual major catastrophe. Thus his journey into ancient mythology linked to planetary catastrophe began.
From Myth to Model
Subject: The goal is not to expound upon purely theoretical models, but to reconstruct an unknown past on the basis of pervasive images and pictures-historical evidence that finds no reference in the natural order today. A David Talbott article.

Velikovsky Article In the Beginning II
Subject: Some foundational material and sources for understanding that ancient people worshipped the brilliant planet Jupiter as the visible presence of God in the sky after Saturn was dethroned.
Talbott Article - Polar Sun I
Subject: Historians as a whole have missed the ancient link of Saturn to kingship, to the origins of civilization, to the roots of ancient myth and symbol, AND to Saturn being earth's earlier sun!.

[51.]   Talbott Article - Polar Sun II
Subject: Elucidating the central, fixed and polar position of this earlier sun.
Talbott Article - Polar Sun III
Subject: Further explaining and supporting the model of the Saturnian sun fixed over the north pole always visible in the northern hemisphere while "turning in the sky".

Subject: In one phase of the evolving Saturnian configuration, Venus stands visually in the center of the gas giant Saturn, discharging luminous streams of material in every direction. A David Talbott article.
The Warrior Athena
Subject: Since Velikovsky was criticized for claiming the Greek Athena was Venus, let's employ this goddess as our test case,  A David Talbott article.
The Birth of Vahagn
Subject: Article about the Armenian myth concerning the birth of Vahagn, a Martian god figure.
Velikovsky's Comet-1
Subject: An article showing how baseless a debunking is when it just looks at each of the pieces in isolation from the pattern that Velikovsky uncovered  A David Talbott article.

[54.]  Velikovsky's Comet-2
Subject: An in-depth look at the "smoking star" designation for comets that was applied to Venus. A David Talbott article.
Velikovsky's Comet-3
Subject: Exploring the comet Venus as the "Soul Bird" and the "Winged Star". A David Talbott article.
Velikovsky's Comet-4
Subject: A look at the logci behind the global themes of the "Great Comet" and it five major themes. A David Talbott article.
Velikovsky's Comet-5
Subject: We have previously observed that, in seeking out Velikovsky's comet, "methodology is everything." A useful methodology will not dismiss a widespread theme just because it appears highly irrational or incapable of explanation. A David Talbott article.
Velikovsky's Comet-6
Subject: Looking at the association of the comet with the "death of kings" theme. A David Talbott article.
Velikovsky's Comet-7
Subject: The apprehension of kings can be illuminated by a sweeping mythical tradition concerning the life and death of Quetzalcoatl, the celestial prototype of kings. A David Talbott article.
Velikovsky's Comet-8
Subject: Across Mesoamerica Venus was celebrated as the radiant heart and soul of the great cultural hero whom the Aztecs called Quetzalcoatl. Yet enigmatically, the appearances of the star after periods of absence stirred extraordinary fear. A David Talbott article.
[55.]  Velikovsky's Comet-9
Subject: Across Mesoamerica, the combination of two calendars, the solar or seasonal calendar and the 260-day ritual calendar, produced an extended sequence of sacred time, in which the two calendars concluded on the same day only once every 52 solar years–a cosmic cycle of extreme import. A David Talbott article.
Velikovsky's Comet-10
Subject: Throughout Mesoamerica, the arrival of the cosmic night was a pervasive subject of ritual re-enactment, from macrocosm to microcosm; the darkness into which the world sank symbolically at the end of the 52-year cycle was the same darkness remembered with each setting of the sun, as every household recalled the dangers of the greater darkness in primeval times. A David Talbott article.
Velikovsky's Comet-11
Subject: In the Mesoamerican world view, it was a sacrifice of cosmic proportions that preceded the dawning of the present world age.  Both the Aztecs and Maya are known to have practiced sacrifice on a horrendous scale, in intimate correspondence with the gods. A David Talbott article.
Velikovsky's Comet-12
Subject: A powerful conjunction of Venus symbolism and comet symbolism will be seen in the vast tribal wars and conquests that fed the rise of empires in Mesoamerica–a conjunction that will only grow in significance as we find the same nexus of symbols in other major cultures as well. What is not sufficiently recognized by the experts is that, in mythical terms, the "first" sacrifice and "first" war occurred in the lives of the gods themselves. A David Talbott article.
[56.]  Velikovsky's Comet-13
Subject: Discerning the relationship of archetype and symbol is particularly crucial when the symbol, in its familiar associations in daily life, cannot convey the extraordinary power of the archetype. A recurring symbol among the Aztecs is that of the broom. In this case the symbol may seem so far removed from our subject as to have no place in this analysis. Yet since this very symbol does recur in ritual contexts of darkness and upheaval, it is only appropriate that we seek out the underlying idea. A David Talbott article.
Velikovsky's Comet-14
Subject: In these brief articles we have asked whether Immanuel Velikovsky's comet Venus finds support among Mesoamerican cultures. Our conclusion is that, to a stunning degree, the symbols or hieroglyphs of comets stand in an unexplained conjunction with the planet Venus in Mesoamerica. Not only the five most frequently-occurring hieroglyphs for the comet around the world, but virtually all of the variations on these symbols are attached to each other and to the planet Venus. On their own, the symbols do not provide any basis for the observed merging. But grant the proposed history of a COMET Venus, and all of the enigmas are removed in a single stroke. A David Talbott article.
Mercury Mythology
Subject: Mercury and Mars myth holds the same story and are in fact the same gods. But why is one story or identity attached to two different celestial bodies? It's simply the way symbolism evolved. A David Talbott article.

Science Categories: Cosmology

[57.]  Cosmology Material
The Nature & Definition of Space
Subject: New paradigm philosophical article on the nature of what we mean by the word "space". Currently, "space" is reified by scientist-speculators as an actual physical reality instead of a mental construct such as zero or infinity. Article shows that space is in the universe instead of the universe being in space.
The Neutrino Aether
  New paradigm philosophical article on why accepting an aether is axiomatic, and why the EU thinking is that it is composed of all but empty basic packets of matter called neutrinos, with a vanishingly small amount of internal mass/energy and dipolarity.
The Nature of Force Fields
Subject: New paradigm philosophical article on the concrete material support for "force fields", and a simple and elegant explanation for why the force intensity falls off with some factor of distance.
Relativity & Einstein Tragedy
Subject: Article about the falsity of the theories of "Relativity", and the tragedy that Einstein felt responsible for the development of atomic weaponry and its WWII use.
The Religious Big Bang
Subject: Article showing that the Big Bang is religiously derived, and is a scientifically unwarranted paradigm.

[58.]  Galactic Rotation Dynamics
Subject: Article showing that galaxies revolve primarily as a whole around the axis versus by the individual parts around a center of mass.
Globular Cluster Dynamics
Subject: Shows that stars in a cluster do not revolve around a center and are held in place by electrical forces.
Cosmologists: Wrong or Blind?
Subject: How could millions of intelligent, conscientious astronomers for centuries have been wrong? Not just overlooking a few details, they miss the entire picture.
Stars: Nuclear or Electric?
Subject: The certainty that the Sun generates its prodigious energy through thermonuclear reactions deep in its interior has held for about half a century. But, there are many reasons to doubt this presently accepted theory of how our Sun and stars generate radiant energy.
3 Gravitational Fallacies
Subject: Velikovsky postulated empiric evidences of the fallacy of the law of gravitation. How do these stand up today?
The Pleiades Problem
Subject: The Hipparcos satellite measured the distance to 50 of the brightest stars in the Pleiades and came up with a distance of 118 parsecs from Earth. Previous distance measurements converged around the value of 132 parsecs. That's a significant difference; about 12%, or almost 3 quadrillion miles.
[52.]  Arp's Quasar Ejection
Subject: A recently published study adds one more layer of supporting evidence for Astronomer Halton Arp's model of Quasars ejection along the axis of parent galaxies. The discovered association can only come as another surprise to theorists of the Big Bang.
Gamma Ray Bursters
Subject: The estimated size of a gamma ray burst depends on its distance from earth. Redshift=distance makes some if not all gamma ray bursts impossibly energetic.
Olber's Paradox
Subject: Why is the sky dark at night? According to the intensity of light decreasing by the square of distance, and the number of stars increasing by the cube of distance, our sky should be blazingly bright.
Local Group Galaxies
Subject: What do we "see" about the local galaxies now that "redshift=distance" does not override observations? We can see that the Local Group stretches in a line along the minor axis of M31, the Andromeda galaxy, which is the dominant galaxy in the group.
Quasar in Front
Subject: One of the two major foundations of the big bang is that redshift is proportional to distance. This example violates that fundamentally.
The Fingers of God
Subject: The big bang theory predetermines the size, shape and age of the universe as an expanding sphere. A different interpretation of redshift will imply a much different universe.

[60.]  Redshift Rosetta Stone
Subject: Some years ago, the XMM Newton orbiting x-ray telescope witnessed a galaxy ejecting two high redshift quasars. Early in the 24- hour observation of the active nucleus of NGC 3516, it recorded a flare ten trillion times as powerful as a solar flare. Then two high redshift regions appeared on opposite sides of the galactic nucleus. One side featured a spike in redshift and the other side a similar dip in redshift–as if one spot were moving away from us and the other coming toward us at about one tenth the speed of light.
Seeing Red Book Review Wings of a Butterfly
Subject: In the electric universe cosmology, explosions, dying stars, and collisions are replaced by plasma phenomena for the production of such beautiful and intricate structures.
The Bug Nebula
   Plasmas in the lab form cellular structures separated by thin layers of opposite charge called double layers. Does the same thing happen in nebulas?
Planet Birthing
Subject: Are planets formed slowly by accretion over millions of years or 3born2 suddenly and violently from a larger body?
Planet Birthing-more
Subject: More information on planet birthing.

[61.]  The Bullet Cluster
Optical and x-ray images of the galaxy cluster named 1E0657-56 have provided direct proof that these clumps of disturbed galaxies are small, faint, and nearby. These and many similar observations directly contradict the foundational assumptions of the Big Bang, which place the objects far away.
The Ornament Nebula
Subject: Gravity Universe proponents describe a star that exhausted its thermonuclear fuel and exploded and blasted its outer layers into a rarified interstellar gas, generating a spherical shock waves formation. Electric Universe proponents describe an hourglass-shaped z-pinch in a galactic Birkeland cable–a tubular configuration of current filaments rotating around an axis, where in this case we are looking "down the barrel". Such a configuration is the “wiring harness” of all stars, which is usually invisible.
Religious Big Bang
Subject: Article showing that the Big Bang is religiously derived, and is a scientifically unwarranted paradigm.
Big Bang "Science"
Subject: At the heart of conventional cosmology lies the dogma of an electrically neutral universe governed by gravity alone. Without the benefit of this dogma, the Big Bang hypothesis could never have achieved its present prominence. And it is here that we see most clearly how, under the necessities of funding, scientists are eager to “confirm” a theory that, according to many critics, has already failed.
Dark Matter
   In the 1930s, astronomers Fritz Zwicky and Sinclair Smith were puzzled by the motions they observed within the Virgo and Coma galactic clusters. Everything seemed to be moving too fast to be held in place by gravity. So they conjectured that something they could not see was exerting a gravitational effect on these clusters.

It is clear that these words are also cognate with many of the names (Ishtar, Astarte, Asherah, Ashteroth) of the goddess identified with the planet Venus. The radiant Venus was at one time the only star-shaped light visible in the sky, and the star-words may be derived from the proper name rather than vice versa.

In Search of Moses
Subject: An article by catastrophist researcher Ev Cochrane concerning reliable information about Moses.

[81.]   Archaeology Section
Caral, Peru Archaeology
Subject: Researchers investigating a Peruvian archaeological site say they have determined that it is the oldest city yet studied in the Americas, with a complex, highly structured society that flourished at the same time that the pyramids were being built in Egypt.
Solstice Light Boxes
Subject: It's been called a "lightbox," a man-made ancient aperture in a tomb that accurately tracks the movement of celestial bodies on the darkened chambers inside.
Bible Flunks Archaeology
Subject: What if Bible accounts don't fit the evidence in the ground? What if David's Jerusalem was really a rural backwater –and the greatness of Israel and Judah lay far in the future? Lately, such assertions are coming from some authorities on Israel's archaeology, who speak from the perspective of recent finds from excavations into the ancient past.
Brother? James Ossuary
Subject: A burial box that was recently discovered in Israel and dates to the first century could be the oldest archaeological link to Jesus Christ, according to a French scholar whose findings were published.

[82.]  Chronology Section
Ages and Time Aspects
Subject: On the macro scale the ancients divided time reality into ages (eras, eons), periods that were determined by qualities versus a quantity of smaller cyclical increments such as months or years.  An age ended and a new age began with a climactic event or events that substantially changed the paradigm, flavor, and/or the experience of the world's reality.
Puzzles of Prehistory
Subject: A planet whose global processes are now, and have long been, predominantly uniformitarian is one which would not be expected to look like our contemporary Earth. A Roger Wescott article.
Dark Age of Greece
Subject: Velikovsky's investigation into the true cause of this so-called "Dark Age" ranks with the best of his work and may well prove to be the most convincing  A Clark Whelton article.
Apocalyptic Chronology
Subject: The dating shift effected by the early Carolingians strongly suggests that the lay population knew both the apocalyptic meaning of the "year 6000" and its surmised imminent approach.  This is the context in which the Annus Domini took its place as the third major dating system in the Church's struggle against apocalyptic enthusiasm.

[83.]  Radiohalos & Earth History
Subject: Historically, radiohalos helped to put the science of geochronology on a quantitative footing.  More recently, they have thrown the en­tire discipline into disarray.
Psuedo-8th Century Palestine
Subject: Making mistakes in the writing of history usually derives from a biased interpretation of documents and artifacts and may also derive from fake documents and fake artifacts. Making mistakes in the writing of history quite frequently has to do with the recycling of stories, and this may result in a duplication of events and rulers allowing for a doubling of chronological time. Making mistakes in the writing of history - last, but not least - derives from taking genuine artifacts out of their stratigraphical context. A Gunnar Heinsohn article.
The Doubtful C.E. Chronology
Subject: It turns out that both B.C.E. AND C.E chronology are rat nests that have HUGE problems and anomalies. Just focusing on C.E. chronology, EVERY single aspect supporting the accepted chronology turns out to be another lily pad in the pond that won't hold the weight when we rely upon it.

The Bergamo Experience
Subject: In 2000, an invitation to introduce the Saturn Reconstruction material at the University of Milano-Bergamo in Italy uncovered the willingness of the audience to listen to the most errant nonsense, but not the Saturnian material, even though they are immersed in the mythology and surrounded with its iconography in their art, statuary and architecture.
The article demonstrates once again the preference for being deceived instead of being open to the truth.
Climate Alarmist Hype
Worlds in Collision Review Story
Subject: From the publication of Worlds in Collision in 1950 until his death in 1979, Immanuel Velikovsky was in an unusual position.  His financial future was assured–all of his books remained in print through his lifetime, and some of them went through dozens of hardcover and soft-cover re-printings–but his reputation was permanently tarnished.
