Velikovsky & the Dogon

Show Archive
Date: Thursday - June 21, 2012
Host: George Noory
Guests: Laird Scranton, Glynis McCants

Debuting on the show, author/researcher Laird Scranton discussed the controversial assertions of Velikovsky, as well as the cosmology and scientific knowledge of the Dogon tribe in West Africa. According to Velikovsky, a large body smacked into Jupiter and as a result of that impact, Venus was ejected as a brilliant comet; it then impacted Mars directly, and proceeded on to have close passes with Earth, before it moved into its current orbit. This suggests that because Earth is similar to Venus, it may have been formed the same way, Scranton said.

In ancient times, Venus was reportedly so bright it could be seen in the daytime-- it was not considered a planet, but on par with the Sun and the moon; but after 1500 BC, texts refer to cataclysmic events that could be associated with the close approach of an astronomical body, Scranton detailed. Recent space probe missions have revealed that Venus does have some comet-like properties, and could be a young planet, he continued. Interestingly, Velikovsky was good friends with Einstein, and it's been said that his Worlds in Collision was the one book found open on Einstein's desk at the time of his death.

As Robert Temple popularized in his book The Sirius Mystery, the Dogon Tribe were aware of Sirius B, a companion star that can't be seen with the naked eye. While Temple suggested aliens gave them this information, Scranton believes the Dogon were originally Egyptians, as there are striking similarities between Dogon symbols and Egyptian hieroglyphics. Around the time of the Egyptian 1st Dynasty, he believes they received instructions from teachers (who may have been ETs, interdimensionals, or some other type of wise beings) who helped civilize humanity, moving them from a hunter-gatherer culture to an agrarian society via knowledge about calendars, and metallurgy for tools.

Numerology Update

First hour guest, numerologist Glynis McCants shared updates on how the year of 2012 is progressing. Because it's a year of "5," it's moving by incredibly quickly and if you don't write down what you're trying to achieve this year, it's not going to happen, she cautioned. The cycle of "5" also brings a lot of drama and chaos, she added. 2013, however, a "6" year, will be a time to get back to basics, focusing on what matters most such as friends, and family, she noted.
