Worlds in Collision

ISBN-10: 
B009HIIP3A

With this book Immanuel Velikovsky first presented the revolutionary results of his 10-year-long interdisciplinary research to the public, founded modern catastrophism - based on eyewitness reports by our ancestors - shook the doctrine of uniformity of geology as well as Darwin's theory of evolution, put our view of the history of our solar system, of the Earth and of humanity on a completely new basis - and caused an uproar that is still going on today. Worlds in Collision - written in a brilliant, easily understandable and entertaining style and full to the brim with precise information - can be considered one of the most important and most challenging books in the history of science.

Not without reason was this book found open on Einstein's desk after his death. For all those who have ever wondered about the evolution of the earth, the history of mankind, traditions, religions, mythology or just the world as it is today, Worlds in Collision is an absolute MUST-READ!

Immanuel Velikovsky was fooled by the Roman naming of the Solar System planets when the Roman empire adopted Christianity and was forced to abandon their Pantheon deities of creation, thus naming the planets as commemoration of the Pantheon deities.

This resulted in the very strange ideas of "planetray upheavals" and later with David Tabott to the confused ideas of “once another polar configuration of some planets hovering above the Earth celestial north pole.

Velikovksy had some fine ideas, but everything he based om ancient myths is misinterpreted. The assumed planetary catastrophic events never happen at all.
