Da Fuq, Cog. I read the series when I was in College & remember that he covered that aspect of it impressively well, pulling all kinds of data out of astronomical records in ancient historical accounts.

45 years later you want chapter & verse -- to save your lazy S the bother of looking it up -- after I've told you where you can find it ?

My lazy azz is not aware that Velikovsky wrote anything about plagues other than his explanation for the Biblical plagues of Egypt being caused by "vermin" from a comet in "Worlds in Collision" (1950). He apparently never addressed the Black Death, a plague that took up to five years to impact all of Europe and is well characterized as being caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis, see: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v4 ... 0549.html/. Its rapid spread in northern climes is indicative of pneumonic plague, the deadlier variety of the disease.

Your statement that "outbreaks occurred almost simultaneously in many parts of Europe" and that the "Air-borne spread of the plague may have come from cosmic events" must be a function of your imagination. Neither you nor Velikovsky have any background in molecular genetics or epidemiology ... and it shows.

I'm not your grad assistant. :P


There's class for ya... When asked to cite the specific part of the source, you resort to swearing & slurs. Classy, I tell ya... :shock:

The Velikoviskian stuff I vaguely remember concerned the era around the time of Christ & first centuries after that.

Hey CS -- since when does a request on your part that I go way out of my way to answer a question for you that you could answer for yourself if you cared enough to put the effort into it become like a dollar bill you feed into a candy machine that entitles you to pull a knob & get what you want out of it ?

Who made me your personal search engine and you a queen whose every wish is somebody's command ?

Sure -- I'll be the Cockney in the room & point that out. In a "classlessly" blunt fashion calculated to get your attention. For a moment, at least . . .

Request? I requested nothing from you. I merely commented on your vulgar, tacky response to someone else's request. :lol:

It seems that you're a bit confused. I deleted no posts & I made no requests of you. You may want to review this topic, just to refresh your memory... Do you become this confused very often?

I do not have anything else to add to this at this time, aside from what has already been given in my book,
and pointing out that global climatic events are also reflected in Mayan writings.

While our ability to read them is still limited, they are contemporaneous and qualify as "historical" by the European definition, or any other definition the archaeological community cares to use.
Usually people believe what they want to believe until reality intrudes.

Addendum : CS is right . . . I think . . . I remembered writing it & posting it but not having poster's remorse & deleting it . . . I think.

Memory is an endless source of entertainment these days :lol:
