illucid The Sadducee Printouts 2003 Sep 20
     ... megalomaniacs . psychology . Holocaust deniers . Velikovsky ...
"This is a book. Not a comic book. There are no pictures. This is a book. In the tradition of books it piggybacks no ads. The Sadducee Printouts runs 1,380 pages comprised of 705,440 words in eight chapters plus a 20-page introduction. THIS BOOK IS RECOMMENDED TO THE FOLLOWING GROUPS OF PEOPLE: Matriarchists. Heterosexual male transvestites in the mold of Richard Wagner. Those interested in metaphysics. Velikovskians. Those interested in Madonna. The proletariat. Those who have heard of Hokhmah and would like to see her in action. ... Piece of advice: Only those whose weight of the body permits it, to paraphrase Kafka, should consider trying to negotiate this book. How do you know if the weight of your body may permit it? You know the answer to these two questions as restated earlier this year by Miss American pi. Do you believe in rock 'n' roll? Can music save your mortal soul? The answer is the square root of -1."

     ... revisionism . catastrophism . Velikovsky ...
"The aim of the World Ages Archive is to provide an extensive web-based reference source for the study of the various ground breaking fields of ancient chronological revisionism, [and] catastrophism. ... Largely inspired by the works of Immanuel Velikovsky, the site centres on the book Planet of the Greeks: The Great Time Warp of History by Meres J. Weche. Several links also provide some important background on the debates and controversies covered in the book. Among those, the readers are encouraged to familiarise themeselves with the history of chronological revisionism, the Velikovsky Affair, as well as the ever-growing controversy surrounding the debate on Martin Bernal's Black Athena book series."

anti Hatshepsut, the Queen of Sheba, 2001 Feb 05
     ... Egyptology . Velikovsky ...
"I should rightly begin by making it clear that I am convinced that the Punt expedition cannot be equated with the queen of Sheba's visit to Jerusalem. While it might suffice to proceed immediately to a response to Velikovsky's thesis in this regard, I prefer to take a different tack and respond to the main arguments and pieces of evidence cited by Velikovsky in his chapter. I do this because scholars of the ancient Near East have been remarkably silent regarding Ages in Chaos in the nearly five decades since its appearance, and I think that lay readers would be ..."

anti Antidote to Velikovskian Delusions 2000 May 13
     ... Velikovsky . skepticism . catastrophism ...
"Mr. Cochrane presents his case for Velikovsky's genius. Velikovsky was a brilliant man whose speculations, unfortunately, were invalidated by his assumptions about his source materials. However, he was no scientist. According to Lloyd Motz, whose advice Velikovsky often sought, 'Velikovsky's credentials were not those of a scientist ... he had only the vaguest understanding of such basic physical principles as conservation of angular momentum, gravity, and entropy.'"

anti Top Ten Reasons Why Velikovsky Is Wrong About Worlds In Collision 2000 May 13
     ... Velikovsky . skepticism . catastrophism ...
"This Top Ten list is based on 30 years exposure to Velikovsky's ideas which includes eight years as an insider at the Velikovsky journal Kronos, Confidant to Velikovsky, invited 'Devil's Advocate' at Aeon, and 13 years as a turncoat/critic interacting with Velikovsky's defenders and/or successors at conferences, in private, and in Usenet and list-serve forums. I apologize for the stridency in what follows, but I continue to be passionate about the issues involved. I hope the tone of what I say does not obscure the accuracy of my analysis."

"This archive is being maintained by a team of historians to ensure the integrity and preservation of Velikovsky's unpublished writings; it is strictly non-profit and its sole purpose is the advancement of education and scholarship."

anti Minds in Ablation 1999 Dec 05
     ... Velikovsky . catastrophism . paleontology . skepticism ...
"In Minds in Ablation, Sean Mewhinney summarizes why he believes the physical evidence provided by paleoclimatic data, especially ice cores, demonstrates that global catastrophes of the type envisioned by Immanuel Velikovsky and others 'could not have happened within the past many thousands of years,' and refutes the defense of Velikovsky's scenario attempted by Charles Ginenthal in his ice core evidence."

     ... Velikovsky . catastrophism ...
"... in his 1950's book Worlds in Collision proposes that many myths and traditions of ancient peoples and cultures are based on actual events: worldwide global catastrophes of a celestial origin, which had a profound effect on the lives, beliefs and writings of early mankind."

cranky The Velikovskian: A Journal of Myth, History and Science 1999 May 27
     ... Velikovsky . catastrophism ...
"[Immanuel Velikovsky] presented this question to us regarding the possibility of global catastrophism in human history. Several other scholars have also investigated this concept, presenting other mechanisms as the basis for these cataclysms. It is the purpose of The Velikovskian to give full reign to those involved in this research so that their concepts may be explored and examined in these pages. ... If there were global cataclysms, then the cause, nature and impact of these upheavals is an important issue in science, history and humanity and is deserving of our attention."
