Description

The catastrophism theories in Immanuel Velikovsky’s 1950s book World in Collision have been vigorously rejected or ignored by the academic community. Yet setting aside the finer details of what happened and when, is it possible that Velikovsky was correct in his basic premise of recent upheaval in the solar system? Is it feasible that Mars and Venus came close to the Earth only a few thousand years ago, causing global disturbances?

Gary Gilligan thinks so, and in furthering Velikovsky’s work he presents a fascinating model whereby Mars, Venus, Mercury and the Moon played havoc with Earth for an incredible 3000 years. In this fascinating book, he discusses how these bodies moved back and forth to Earth numerous times and came so close as to loom larger than the Sun.

Incredible claims, but under no illusion, this is not just another “wacky” theory in support of planetary chaos, for unlike Velikovsky Gilligan steers clear of the surreal stuff of mythology, the means which most catastrophists use to promote their ideas. He uses ancient history to prove his thesis.

Delving into the most fascinating civilisations of ancient times, the Ancient Egyptians, this book presents the the most outrageous and incredible proposal that the Egyptian God Kings, the Pharaohs, were first and foremost names given to Mars, Venus, Mercury and the Moon as they moved back and forth to Earth in a constant cycle of death and rebirth. They were in the second instance represented here on Earth via human ‘doubles’ – human pharaohs who were believed to be ‘at one’ with celestial God King planets.

If correct, this book has the potential to change the course of history.
