Approached from the right angle and with a little luck, the Past will upon occasion reveal its secrets to us. This book lays out evidence that the Earth originated in the outer solar system and argues that tidal forces during approaches of Mars caused the great mass extinctions of prehistory. The Knowable Past revises and enhances the Venus theory of Immanuel Velikovsky. It provides abundant new evidence that he was right that Venus had repeatedly neared the Earth, setting off the Bronze Age catastrophes. The Great Sphinx, Stonehenge, and newly adduced iconographic and linguistic evidence from around the world all fit this reconfigured Venus theory and its wonderful companion Theory of the Reversing Earth. While Velikovsky made some pioneer’s mistakes, he also made remarkable contributions. His scientific critics threw the baby out with the bathwater in the greatest ongoing instance of Scientific Rejectionism.
