I’ve been traveling these last couple of weeks, maybe running from Father Time? I’ve experienced something so unusual that it needs to be memorialized … I’ve had nothing to write about! During this period (which included my 68th birthday) my lovely wife gave me a wonderful gift: Three books, two by Immanuel Velikovsky and one by his daughter. I’ve been engrossed.
In the meantime she came across the Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes Project, part of which results in the video above. The two, this project, and Velikovsky are in my mind connected.
The worlds of archeology, anthropology, paleontology and astronomy hold a gradualist view of human history, a slow creeping change in our landscapes, so that the mass of Stonehenge seen above must have slowly disappeared from view. It is as if I were to stand in a field and watch over the eons as my feet became covered in silt and sand, unable to move, but preserved. To dispute this strange notion is called, haughtily, “pseudoscience.” Velikovsky, had he trained in any of the above professions, would have overlooked the obvious.
Far more likely something stunning and sudden happened to bury this massive complex. But the state of modern science, not too different from the time of Galileo, dare not speak of catastrophism. They can show us this city buried beneath the ground, as their technology is simply amazing. They cannot speculate about how a city got buried, as they will be buried in slander by their peers.
Modern science is internally contradictory, an oxymoron.
