Can you please elaborate on this and give dates for these ages? I'm quite curious.
I can't tell you as the varchive does not elaborate.
Perhaps the oldest date in the Velikovsky vocabulary in 10,000 years.
I know no one is interested or speaks of it as they have grand plans
of unrecorded history to tell us.
Apparently God was shaping our world, Earth, as our ancestors were
watching. Thus Velikovsky has world wide observers.
From ancient traditions and later texts and present day authors the
planet Saturn exploded and caused the deluge.
This took 7 days from bright light to The Flood arrival, so it is written.
On the 17 of the second month if I recall right.
More oxygen was in the air before as perhaps helped the Giants live
easier. So do not think he dated the Deluge but might if you get
one of the passages in the varchive.
I know Velikovsky disobeys the laws of physics as we know them.
Next was the tower of babel and a Mercury connection or appearance.
To me as one reason for the tower was to avoid the next flood and
preserve their lives even though Noe had it from God there would not
be another Deluge. The disruption of languages might have been the
creation of symbols and writing to avoid committing to memory and
the loss of togetherness. Each peoples started their own language.
Can't recall the other ages but the Exodus with comet Venus might
be another Velikovsky fixes around -1500 pre A.D. And somehow
includes Mars abound -800 and -600 or so as causing well documented
Earth disasters according to Velikovsky.
PART I: THE EARLY AGES
PART II: SATURN AND THE FLOOD
PART III: MERCURY AND MEMORY
PART IV: JUPITER OF THE THUNDERBOLT
are 4 ages.
Jupiter apparently caused Sodom and Gomorrah and the
