Arrow Collision Course

Worlds in Collision is a book written by Immanuel Velikovsky and first published April 3, 1950.. The book postulated that around the 15th century BCE, Venus was ejected from Jupiter as a comet or comet-like object, and passed near Earth.. The object changed Earth's orbit and axis, causing innumerable catastrophes that were mentioned in early mythologies and religions around the world..The book, Velikovsky's most criticized and controversial, was an instant New York Times bestseller, topping the charts for 11 weeks while being in the top ten for 27 straight weeks..Velikovsky's work has been harshly criticised, including even by some fellow chronological revisionists...

After Worlds Collide..

According to Zecharia Sitchin, what created the asteroid belt between mars and Jupiter?.what happened to the remains of Nibiru/Tiamat?..

How did the Anunnaki create a slave race to do their bidding?.The Sumerian tablets name two people involved in the creation of the slave race.. Who were they?..

Who wrote genesis and exodus and what are they based on?.What happened on earth between 11,000 and 4000 BC?..

Velikovsky lived in what was then the British Mandate of Palestine from 1924 to 1939, practising medicine in the fields of general practice, psychiatry and psychoanalysis which he had studied under Sigmund Freud's pupil Wilhelm Stekel in Vienna..In 1939, with the prospect of war looming, Velikovsky travelled with his family to New York, intending to spend a sabbatical year researching for his book Oedipus and Akhenaton.. The book was inspired by Freud's Moses and Monotheism and explored the possibility that Pharaoh Akhenaton was the legendary Oedipus..Within weeks of his arrival in the United States, World War II began. Launching on a tangent from his original book project, Velikovsky began to develop the radical catastrophist cosmology and revised chronology theories for which he would become notorious..He arrived at a body of radical inter-disciplinary ideas, which might be summarised ..Planet Earth has suffered natural catastrophes on a global scale, both before and during humankind's recorded history..There is evidence for these catastrophes in the geological record and archeological record.. The extinction of many species had occurred catastrophically, not by gradual Darwinian means...

The catastrophes that occurred within the memory of humankind are recorded in the myths, legends and written history of all ancient cultures and civilisations.. Velikovsky pointed to alleged concordances in the accounts of many cultures, and proposed that they referred to the same real events..For instance, the memory of a flood is recorded in the Hebrew Bible, in the Greek legend of Deucalion, and in the Manu legend of India.. Velikovsky put forward the psychoanalytic idea of "Cultural Amnesia" as a mechanism whereby these literal records came to be regarded as mere myths and legends...

The R-complex plays an important role in what kinds of behavior?..What made the saurornithoides different from other dinosaurs?..Sven Bronson, a South African astronomer discovers that a, pair of rogue planets,Bronson Alpha and Bronson Beta, will soon enter the solar system..In 8 months, they will pass close enough to cause catastrophic damage..16 months later, after swinging around the Sun, Bronson Alpha will return to pulverize the Earth and leave.. It is hoped that Bronson Beta will remain and assume a stable orbit..Scientists led by Cole Hendron work desperately to build an atomic rocket to transport enough people, animals and equipment to Bronson Beta in an attempt to save the human race..Various countries attempt the same thing. Nations including the United States evacuate their coastal regions in preparation for the Bronson bodies' first pass.. As the planets approach, observers see through their telescopes what everyone agrees are cities on Bronson Beta..

What does the shape of the Pope’s hat symbolize?..When Worlds Collide" first aired in the United States on May 16..Critics gave the episode positive reviews.. One called the episode "intense" while another called it "game-changing"..What was the original text of the book of Enoch?.. have seen beyond the bounds of infinity and drawn down daemons from the stars.. I have harnessed the shadows that stride from world to world to sow darth and madness..but I cannot help seeing beyond the tinsel of humour, and recognising the pitiful basis of jest—the world is indeed comic, but the joke is on mankind...
