Stephen J. Gould and Immanuel Velikovsky,
Essays in the Continuing Velikovsky Affair
(1996) By Charles Ginenthal

About this book... Before we begin to look at the details of Stephen J. Gould and Immanuel Velikovsky Essays in the Continuing Velikovsky Affair, its intellectual and historical backgrounds must be clearly established. We are dealing, of course, with the Immanuel Velikovsky story, which the unfamiliar reader will grasp more easily if it is seen as falling into four separate areas:

1. Velikovsky's highly revolutionary, catastrophic theories,

2. the Velikovsky Affair, which is the sordid and vicious response to those ideas by mainstream, American science,

3. the impressive amount of evidence, especially from the space probes, which has accumulated in mainstream science since 1950 in support of Velikovsky's theories and predictions, and

4. catastrophist science, or research by Velikovsky's supporters in a number of fields, published in hundreds of scholarly articles, which constitutes a parallel universe to mainstream, traditional, uniformitarian science.


Newton, Einstein & Velikovsky (2015) by Charles Ginenthal 

 About this book... Immanuel Velikovsky, in Worlds in Collision (1950), claimed that electromagnetism played a role in celestial mechanics.  The scientific establishment, and particularly the astronomers grounded in Newtonian/Einsteinian theory,  responded to Velikovsky with outrage.  They knew this could not be true.  In Newton, Einstein & Velikovsky, Charles Ginenthal presents numerous forms of scientific evidence that indicate Velikovsky was right!  From an examination of tidal theory, to the stability of the Earth−Moon system, to the nature of Kepler’s theory of ellipses, to the nature of torques and much more, Ginenthal shows that none of these fundamental concepts of celestial mechanics stands up to careful analysis.  The basis of solar system stability presented by Laplace is shown to be based not on strict formulation of Newtonian theory, but on concepts that essentially bypass Newtonian theory. 

There are also presented scientific experiments published in peer-reviewed journals that directly show that electromagnetism does affect the motions of pendulums indicating that electromagnetism is tied to the motions of the Earth, Moon and Sun.  There is direct botanical and zoological evidence that requires that the Earth’s geographic poles moved in recent times.  Furthermore, there is a great deal of interdisciplinary scientific evidence that shows Mars’ orbit changed recently and that Venus is, as Velikovsky claimed, a newborn planet.

 The cosmology, now regarded as proved, is shown to be contradicted by numerous scientific forms of evidence, and the foundations of much of modern theoretical science, including Einstein’s theories of special and general relativity, are deeply in error.  Those interested in a major and thorough understanding of the contradictions of modern theory are invited to learn how deeply modern science is mired in contradictions and errors, and how Velikovsky’s concept of electromagnetism resolves them.


Carl Sagan and Immanuel Velikovsky (1995) by Charles Ginenthal  

About this book... Since the publication of Worlds in Collision, Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky's unconventional theories of the origin of the solar system have generated immense interest and bitter controversy. Chief among his critics has been the well-known astronomer, author and television personality, Dr. Carl Sagan, of Cornell University.

While brilliantly defending Velikovsky's work, Carl Sagan and Immanuel Velikovsky mercilessly
dissects Sagan, his blatantly snide, dishonest and unprofessional 'arguments,' and exposes the sordid and unscientific side of 'scientific' controversy.


The Extinction of the Mammoth  by Charles Ginenthal
The Velikovskian Journal, 1997, Special Edition, Vol. III, Nos. 2 and 3

About this book... Did the mammoth live in Alaska and Siberia during the Ice Age? Pollen research emphatically denies this. Could the bones, tusks, and bodies of mammoths have been buried gradually and preserved in the tundra? Recent studies prove this could not have occurred. Did the poles of the Earth shift, and is there fundamental evidence to prove this? Yes! Plant geography presents solid support that the orientation of the poles was much less oblique when the mammoths roamed the Arctic.

The Extinction of the Mammoth outlines and explains the historical evidence and views of science on these problems and many, many others. It explores the scientific research that has been gleaned over the past twenty-five years from numerous fields, and goes well beyond to expose the inept and contradictory data that indicates that gradualism has failed to explain this extinction.



The Electro-Gravitic Theory of Celestial Motion & Cosmology by Charles Ginenthal
With Appendix by George Talbott

The Velikovskian Journal, 1999, Vol. IV, No. 3

About this book... This book presents a revolutionary explanation of celestial motion which challenges Albert Einstein's theory of General Relativity and Isaac Newton's view that gravity and inertia are the only forces which generate celestial motion.

Employing Electro-Gravitic Theory, Charles Ginenthal maintains that celestial bodies exhibit systematic and symmetric behavior not explained by traditional theory.  This theory posits the concept that electromagnetism is a counter force to gravity which can be fully tested in space.

Pillars of the Past, by Charles Ginenthal

Pillars of the Past, Volume I
The Velikovskian Journal, 2003, Vol. VI, Nos. 1, 2 & 3

About this book... Pillars of the Past, Volume I, explores, through studies based primarily on scientific and technological evidence, the chronology of the ancient Near East.  This evidence indicates that the historians and archaeologists have invented over 1500 years of history that simply never existed.  The evidence includes astronomical Sothic dating, radiocarbon dating, pottery dating, tin bronze production, iron metallurgy as it relates to cutting diorite and other hard rock.  In addition, erosion of Egyptian monuments along with agronomy and soil salinization, climatology, agriculture, as well as archaeological and geological stratigraphy all support the conclusion that at least 1500 years of ancient history are a mirage.  Glass development, domestication of the horse and ass, Hebrew, Greek, and Hittite linguistics, forensic studies of the teeth of ancient peoples prove that this millennium and a half or more are historical fiction.  There is of course much, much more.  With hundreds of footnotes from many diverse fields of study, Ginenthal ruthlessly tears away the façade of the established long chronology.  For new and old readers of ancient history, in clear, understandable language, the history of the ancient Near East is exposed, showing that at least half of the cloth of that age is an invention; that the emperor, in reality, has no clothes.

Pillars of the Past, Volume II
With Astronomical Appendix by Lynn E. Rose
The Velikovskian Journal, 2008, Vol. VII, Nos. 2, 3 & 4

About this book... Pillars of the Past, Volume II,  continues and enlarges the analysis that began in the previous volume.  Here we surprisingly discover that astronomy ties the Old Babylonians directly to Persian times.  Furthermore, the astronomical basis for dating the Neo-Assyrians also places them in the Persian Era along with several other forms of evidence.  Technological evidence from digs in Mesopotamia that had been originally dated to the second millennium B.C. indicate that these sites must be moved into the first.  Stratigraphical concepts used to support the established chronology are examined and are shown to be so erroneous that these concepts must be dropped.  The evidence of dendrochronology that has been employed as support for the conventional chronology is also found to be so riddled with error that it too must be discarded.  The dating of the eruption of Thera related to frost tree ring damage in California and Ireland, along with the ice cores of Greenland, fails to support that lengthy chronology as well.  The domestication of the camel and the pig also play a role in unraveling and contradicting that long chronology and uphold the revisions of Gunnar Heinsohn, Emmet J. Sweeney, and Lynn E. Rose.  The metallurgy of gold, silver, and various forms of bronze tells the same story.  All this, along with many other technological/scientific materials is presented to show that the chronology of the ancient Near East requires a drastic revision.  As with the evidence in Vol. I, Pillars of the Past, Vol. II, is a milestone on the road to revising and shortening the deeply flawed, erroneous chronology that now reigns for the ancient Near East.

Pillars of the Past, Volume III
The Velikovskian Journal, 2010, Vol. VIII, Nos. 1, 2, 3 & 4

About this book... Pillars of the Past, Volume III , completes the scientific and technological appraisal of the chronology of the ancient Near East. It also examines Immanuel Velikovsky’s catastrophic hypothesis and chronology to show how his thesis fits in with that of the short chronology presented in the previous two volumes. It connects the chronology of Egypt with that of the Hebrews as well as with the Assyrians, Greeks, Mitanni, Old Babylonians, and the civilizations of the Aegean. It correlates the movements of domesticated animals from different regions to and from Egypt to tie these chronologies together. It shows that Magan, Meluhha, and Dilmun can be identified with regions that historians have been unable to place, and it examines how the Sea Peoples, the Sealand people, and the Second Sealand Dynasty are all related directly to the Greeks. It further examines the climate changes and catastrophes Velikovsky presented that correlate with the short chronologies of Gunnar Heinsohn, Lynn E. Rose, and Emmet J. Sweeney.

Importantly, it examines biblical history as it fits into the short chronology based on astronomical evidence. A wealth of linguistic and alphabetic materials shows and allows us to understand that the forensic historical evidence makes the history of the Hebrews valid for the divided monarchy down to Persian and Hellenistic times. In this way, the sojourn of Israel in Egypt is shown to be, as some have suggested, the Hyksos period. The Exodus is outlined in such a way that it explains why the civilization in Palestine developed largely around and after the Exodus. All this and a great deal more is presented in this culminating volume of Near Eastern Chronology. Beyond this, other revisionist historians’ chronologies are examined and their inadequacies exposed. The “Last Words” conclusion shows how incapable historians and archaeologists are of accepting scientific facts that deny all they have presented regarding the established chronology.

Appendix: Astronomy and the Short Chronology, by Lynn E. Rose

The Velikovskian Journal, 2012, Vol. IX, Nos. 1, 2, 3 & 4

About this book... Pillars of the Past, Volume IV:  Stonehenge and the Megalithic World, examines the chronology of this period. Archaeologists maintain that these monuments, the pottery, graves, metal and stone tools, skeletons, etc., associated with them only make sense if we place these in the Late Neolithic Age, ca. 4000–1500 B.C. However, there is a wealth of evidence that denies this placement and instead points to the Megalithic Age falling in the post-Roman era/the Early Middle Ages ca. A.D. 600–900. All dating methods used to date the megalithic world have failed and this is admitted repeatedly by modern researchers. The astronomical alignments employed to date these monuments that were used to criticize Velikovsky’s chronological thesis have now fallen into ruins under the scrutiny of these authorities. The only non-controversial alignment that exists at Stonehenge apparently fits there between 500–700 A.D. Employing dozens of technological forms of evidence such as burning of peat to obtain red ash, styles and production of pottery, climatology, agronomy, animal husbandry, agricultural methods such as fertilization, plowing heavy earth, etc., architectural forms and artifacts, toilet and sewage drainage, the action of earthworms and much, much more, the evidence that places Stonehenge and the Megalithic Age in post-Roman times is overwhelming. Hard evidence from sites across the Afro-Eurasian landmass dated to the Neolithic Age all show that they are post-Roman entities. The cause of the fall of the great technologically advanced Roman world into the abject poverty of the early Middle Ages/Megalithic Age is fully explained. Those chronographers who have claimed this period does not exist, such as Heribert Illig, Gunnar Heinsohn, Anatoly Fomenko, Emmet Sweeney, are challenged to answer this evidence. Mike Baillie’s and Laurence Dixon’s theses are also examined and they are challenged to show that the forensic historical evidence presented in this volume does not match their chronological concepts. Volume IV completes this examination of chronology and is must reading for those interested in what forensic history tells us about chronology.
