Bible Statistics Misuse

statistics on the King James Bible. Of course the number of books (66)

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. The sequence seldom if ever
rises to the level of being taken into consideration, by us or by the

us. The telling of a story also depends upon to whom you are talking.
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. Maybe the entire Old Testament
history of Israel is an allegory with the very thinnest base in reality.
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

what is in plain sight here is a version of spiritual Scotoma.

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
The Meaning of Imminent
Subject: Getting clear on the meaning of the word "imminent".
[29.] Ancient Misc Myth Articles
The One Ancient Story
Subject: A presentation and explanation of the universal story
of the ancient peoples. A David Talbot article.
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.
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
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
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
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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
An early article on the revolving
crescent on the face of Saturn. A David Talbott article.
The Central Sun
Subject: An early article by David Talbott showing that many threads
of evidence lead to unified conclusions.
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.
Labyrinth & Fortress Themes
A David Talbott article about these themes relating
to the serpentine streamers of Venus and Mars during a phase of the
Golden Age ending polar alignment and its collapse.
Male Gods in Myth
Subject: An article by David Talbott and Rens van der Sluijs
concerning the male gods related to Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter, and their
early development and activity.
Mars Rocks & Myth
Subject: An article by Ev Cochrane concerning Martian Rocks
and ancient myth and modern science.
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
[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!
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.
Microcosm to Macrocosm
Subject: An article showing that atomic warfare mirrors the
ancient catastrophes delivered from the skies.
Theomachy in the Theater
Subject: An insightful article showing that post World War II
movies heavily reflected the impact of atomic devastation upon our psyches.
Myth and Mandala
Subject: An article exploring the connection to the ancient
kingship-of-heaven to the mandala.
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.
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.
The Sin Control System
Subject: Exploring mankind's catastrophically induced sin guilt
and how that is used as a control system.
Sin Control & Holocaust
Subject: Relating Myer's "The Sin Control Problem" to the holocaust.
Emotional Impact of Disaster
Subject: In a major catastrophe, experts say, the
psychological world collapses just as resoundingly as the physical one.
Article explores the emotional impact of disaster.
[41.] Modern Mythology Material
Western Academia's Modern Mythology
Subject: Laying out the case for the development of the Modern
Mythology in both science and Religion.
Western Academia's Reifications
Subject: Looking at some of Western science's and academia's egregious reifications.
Astral Catastrophist Pioneers
Subject: Historical information about the major pioneers that
developed the modern thinking about ancient planetary catastrophe.
Six Great Enigmas with
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.
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
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.
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
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
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.
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.
Lecture & Video Links
Subject: Links to articles and videos relating to time, space,
aether, force fields, catastrophic cultural carryforward, and the EMP
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.
Life's Like Chocolate
Genius versus Wisdom
God's Quality Control
The following articles give some very foundational
material on the development of myth from ancient planetary catastrophe.
Mythology of the Golden Age
Subject: David Talbott writes about the reality and major aspects
of the Golden Age, and what an overwhelming loss it was to the ancient
people to have it end.
Talbott Article - Universal Monarch
Subject: David Talbott writes about the reality and major aspects of the Universal Monarch.
The Saturn Theory Demands
Subject: A frank assessment of the demands that must be met for
the viability of the Saturnian Reconstruction theory.
The Sabbath Star
Subject: A partial look at the connection of Saturn to the Sabbath.
[50.] Velikovsky Article In the Beginning I
Subject: Some foundational material and sources for under-standing
that all ancient people worshipped the sun-planet Saturn as the
visible presence of God in the sky.
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.
Velikovsky ArticleIn the Beginning III
Subject: Some foundational material and sources for understanding
that ancient people worshipped the Moon as a significant God.
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
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".
Talbott Article - Polar Sun IV
Subject: Showing that the Saturnian Reconstruction as having a
central, fixed, polar sun passes the rigorous tests that are demanded.
World with One Season-I
World with One Season-II
Subject: Articles delineating the ancient world of one season under the
Night Sun Saturn.
[53.] The Comet Venus
Subject: A look at the broom and sweeping aspect of Venusian myth. A David Talbott article.
Terrifying Glory of Venus
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.
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.
Subject: Exploring the comet Venus as the "Soul Bird" and the
"Winged Star". A David Talbott article.
Subject: A look at the logci behind the global themes of the "Great
Comet" and it five major themes. A David Talbott article.
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.
Subject: Looking at the association of the comet with the "death of
kings" theme. A David Talbott article.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
[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
[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.
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
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?
Subject: Are planets formed slowly by accretion over millions of years or 3born2 suddenly
and violently from a larger body?
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
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.
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.

[66.] Symbol Development
Memories of Plasma Discharge
Subject: What do oriental carpets,
craters and rilles, ancient mythology, rock art have to do with each other? Along with others they are
all pieces in a composite picture of catastrophe in ancient
times, and they are all related to plasma configurations seen in the sky.
Memories of Squatter Man
Subject: Many symbolic patterns around the world
can now be seen as variations of the global "squatter man" or "stick
man" first documented by plasma scientist Anthony Peratt. They are
stylized derivations of a plasma discharge configuration seen in the ancient sky.
Chinese Longevity Symbol
Subject: This symbol is a stylized
version of the "squatter man" and is related to longevity
because this plasma discharge formation lasted the longest in the series
seen in the ancient sky.
Astral Origin of Symbols
Subject: The powerful symbols that were produced in the sky
during the end-phase of the Golden Age include all the major religious
ones—the cross, swastika, star of David, yin yang,, star and crescent,
the Ankh—and many others that are global in scope.
[67.] Language Development
Subject: An exposition positing and supporting the idea that much
of linguistic development is related to the Saturnian polar alignment,
and most if not all happened immediately after the Great catastrophe and
subsequent global catastrophe.
Tower of Babel Language
Subject: A Discussion of the Tower of Babel account and its place in
The "No Eight" Pattern
Subject: A look at a very curious pattern of Sanskit-Indo-European
languages showing that the word for night is a combination of the words
"no eight", and a simple and stunning explanation.
Origin of "Star" Words
Subject: Throughout the whole range of the Indo-European
language group, the words for star are cognate, starting (!) with the
Sanskrit 'star' . 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.
[68.] Planet-Star Words
Subject: A look at many and varied word patterns surrounding the
root words "star", Mars, Ares, Venus, Innanna, Saturn, El, and Chronos.
Subject: The languages familiar to us cannot be
traced back to, or will not point back to, any systematic
language prior to the polar configuration. Article by David Talbott.
Subject: An article about Egyptologists finding earliest use of
an alphabet in a Semitic script with Egyptian influences.
Subject: A 3800-year-old alphabet has been found intact on six
global continents. Translations and grammar suggest a global human
culture thrived in antiquity.
The Great Pyramid|
[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
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
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.
In Search of Moses
Subject: An article by catastrophist researcher Ev Cochrane concerning
reliable information about Moses.
Subject: Archaeologists have discovered traces of a huge and
elaborate wooden temple dating back 5,000 years. Evidence shows that it was
once one of the most important ceremonial sites in England, comparable in
significance to Stonehenge.
[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. 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
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.
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
Caucasoid Early Americans

Subject: This is a big issue when it comes to building a world view and
sorting out the geophysical and archaeological issues.
[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
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.
CE Chronology Issues
Subject: A partial yet convincing overview of Europe's CE dating
challenges from several different perspectives that indicate a drastic
revision is needed.

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.
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
