Velikovsky and catastrophism

Ancient History (revised and orthodox)

  • Velikovsky Revisited (vol. I) and Velikovsky Revised (vol. II) is an e-book by J. Eric Aitchison available from Mikamar Publishing (http://mikamar.biz/thunderbolts-product.htm) for downloading on your computer. This 2-vol. e-book (at US$12.00 each volume) is 'a long and in-depth study' and the author's way of reconciling 'the conventional model of ancient history with the Ages in Chaos series of Velikovsky.' Although several of Immanuel Velikovsky's synchronisms are refuted by the author, at the same time he appears to remain on board 'the Velikovsky experience'.  He also acknowledges the work of several other revisionists that have contributed to his own work.
