The only interresting thing I found in this, was the fact that after the movie ended, there was a link to Velikovsky. Interrestingly enough ...
It appears that Velikovsky's ideas, are wider spread than otherwise, and this nonsense about catastrophies coming, is still lingering among people.
I'll call it "The Smallville phenomena". It's actually a latent idea, among people, that a huge big red glowing ball is going to appear in the
Sky, and then Superman will appear and throw it away from the Planet earth.
It's actually, an inner cry for help. The idea, that only when in dire need, will there appear hope and a savior.
There are many things, in what this guys said. Just as there are many things in what Velikovsky said. But velikovsky was far too religous and set on
his jewish ways, seeing everything from the Bible, to ever really stumble on the truth. And his "predictions" are much more likely to be, that he
new in advance, having known people like Einstein.
However, it doesn't nullify Velikovsky's ideas. Only his theory. Nor is the OP's ideas nullfied, only his theory. Both are just as much filled
with wishful thinkiong, as they claim the mainstream science to be. However, the OP is correct in that we will survive december 21st. But he is also
wrong, in the assumption, that catastrophies will follow. As is vellikovsky correct, in that probably many of the ancient events actually took place.
But to seek to use some theories, to explain every content of the bible, is not science. It's religion. That man, has suffered some amnesia, from
collective trauma. Sure, that it's origin are in the hebrew scriptures, is nonsense.
The bottom line here, OP. Is that we cannot allow ourselves, to endulge ourselves in wishful thinking. Spending all our lives, to "create" truths,
so that we can still believe in our old scriptures, is not science. Finding evidence of anomalies in current events, to make these as proof of
december 21st, only being the beginning of something unknown. Is the same thing ... your dwelling on the bible, on biblical texts. On religious
Which, in reality, does not have its origin in the heavens. But in the fact, that nature of man changed from being a mammal, with only small
tendencies of group activity. But that man, grew a conscious, out of it's unconscious instinctive behaviour as an animal. Into being an intelligent
being, that had thoughts ... man changed, from being a God, into being a man ... a rational man. Velikovsky, is a religious heretic, because he
didn't want to accept the theories of psychology, that he studied, and that man had created a conscious. That ancient man, was not really a thinking
being, but a scizorenic entity, captured in the betweens of instincts and thought. Velikovsky wanted so much to believe in his bible, that he looked
for any explanation, to prove the epic tails of the bible to be true.
Nor is the Nibiru, catastrophies .... but yes, there will be catastrophies, in past, present and future. But they are not connected to any of the
sciptures, or other prophecies. Because these prophecies nature, does not have it's origin there ... but in man, and the fact that mans idea of God,
is the birth of the colective mind, of society ... we commonly call .... government.
