A reexamination of Immanuel Velikovsky s controversial Venus theories in light of new astronomical and archaeological findings Provides new evidence from recent space probe missions to support Velikovsky s theories on the formation of Venus Presents recently translated ancient texts from China, Korea, and Japan that uphold the cometlike descriptions of Venus cited by VA reexamination of Immanuel Velikovsky s controversial Venus theories in light of new astronomical and archaeological findings Provides new evidence from recent space probe missions to support Velikovsky s theories on the formation of Venus Presents recently translated ancient texts from China, Korea, and Japan that uphold the cometlike descriptions of Venus cited by Velikovsky Examines evidence of major geomagnetic events in 1500 BCE and 750 BCE that correspond with close passes of the comet Venus and its impact with Mars Offers scientific explanations for many disputed aspects of Velikovsky s theories, such as how Venus could have transformed from a comet into an orbiting planet Surrounded by controversy even before its publication in 1950, Immanuel Velikovsky s Worlds in Collision introduced the provocative theory that Venus began as a brilliant comet ejected by Jupiter around 1600 BCE, wreaking chaos on Mars and Earth as it roamed through our solar system prior to settling into its current orbit Immediately dismissed without any investigation and subject to vicious attacks, Velikovsky s theory is now poised for reexamination in light of recent astronomical and archaeological findings Exploring the key points of Velikovsky s theories, Laird Scranton presents evidence from recent space probe missions to show that Venus still exhibits cometlike properties, such as its atmospheric composition, and could be a young planet Reviewing the widespread cometlike descriptions of Venus from 1500 BCE to 750 BCE as well as Velikovsky s observation that no records of Venus exist prior to 1600 BCE, Scranton reveals recently translated ancient texts from China, Korea, and Japan that further uphold Velikovsky s theories Examining evidence of major geomagnetic and climate change events around 1500 BCE and 750 BCE, corresponding with close passes of the comet Venus and its impact with Mars, the author offers scientific explanations for many disputed aspects of Velikovsky s theories, such as how Venus transformed from a comet into an orbiting planet By updating this unresolved controversy with new scientific evidence, Scranton helps us to understand how it was that Worlds in Collision was the one book found open on Albert Einstein s desk at the time of his death.

    1. I think Velikovsky has the right of things. It is so funny that we completely ignore ancient writings, we are just so smart they all must be wrong. Delusions of grandeur, we are quit stubbed and we prove it over and over again. I have been reading some history lately and there is so much that we could learn, but we don't and won't, sad.

    2. I enjoyed this book very much. It was well documented and fascinating. Velikovsky may end up being the Copernicus of our generation. I read many of his books years ago and was surprised by some of his conclusions. In thinking outside the box, he made some very astute observations and novel assumptions, postulating some interesting theories, many of which are proving to be valid as we continue to learn more about the universe. I didn't know he discussed many of his ideas with Einstein. The author [...]

    3. While I didn't always like the way Laird Scranton shifted between the academic "we" and a more intimate "I" in his prose, I thoroughly enjoyed my reading of The Velikovsky Heresies. Enough so that I now feel inspired to read Worlds in Collision, a book I'd have never known of save for a brief glimpse of the title in a used bookstore almost ten years ago.The best part of the book is how much it reminds us of how human we all are, even those people we idolize. I certainly have a new perspective of [...]

    4. A solid survey of recent scientific evidence concerning Velikovsy's "Worlds in collision" theory. Missions to Venus, Mars, and Jupiter have confirmed many of his predictions, and failed to uncover any substantive proof against the theory that was so violently opposed by the scientific establishment.

    5. This is a bunch of unscientific drivel. Period. The fact that other users gave it more than 4 stars makes me weep for the future of the human race. How stupid are people to believe this??
