Laird Scranton - Hour 1 - The Velikovsky Heresies
March 18, 2012
Laird Scranton is an independent software designer who became interested in Dogon mythology and symbolism in the early 1990s. He has studied ancient myth, language, and cosmology since 1997 and has been a lecturer at Colgate University. He also appears in John Anthony West's Magical Egypt DVD series. He returns to Red Ice to discuss his new book, The Velikovsky Heresies which includes several important new pieces of evidence which argue in favor of Immanuel Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision theories, now more than 60 years old. We'll discuss the possible ejection of Venus from Jupiter, the discovery of a comet-like tail on Venus and the discovery that comets are comprised of a mix of materials that - if formed according to traditional theory - could only have formed at widely varying distances from the sun. The same materials are now known to exist side-by-side within the atmosphere of Jupiter. This argues that some short-period comets may have originated (as Velikovsky proposes) inside Jupiter. Laird examines each discreet aspect of Velikovsky's theory and updates its reasonableness from the perspective of recent scientific findings.
