      Thanks for your very warm welcome, and for your openness and
      honesty. I've always found it very difficult to say what I really
      mean because "independent" researchers like me (and you) often get
      results that don't fit in with anyone else's system of thought. I
      just want to make sense of things, so please (everyone) do me a
      favour and point out any and all of my blatant errors in case I lead
      anyone astray!

      To briefly follow in the footsteps of your own musings; the big
      picture for me takes in the whole of history from the beginning to
      where we are now, and to the inevitable conclusion of what's being
      played out.(prophecy)

      On a more reasonable historical scale, I try to fit the pieces of
      the jigsaw into smaller chunks; for instance, the thousand-year
      period from the Flood until the major devastation of the world at
      the time of the Exodus (which Velikovsky makes sense of) was a time
      for the rapid expansion of civilization throughout the world, and
      also of continuing "natural" turbulance, the aftermath of what had
      caused the flood in the first place.

      The single land-mass of "Pangaea" wasn't millions of years ago, but
      was what could be logically expected after the re-emergence from the
      flood-waters, and explains how ancestors of all modern creatures
      were able to reach their present habitations, including tiny niche
      specialists like moles and mice in Australia.

      Later, at the time of Velikovsky's Exodus-trauma, an external force
      ripped apart the continents, separating, altering and isolating.

      Consider the marsupials of Australia and their placental
      counterparts in the northern hemisphere, such as the almost-
      identical Australian Sugar-glider and the American Flying Squirrel -
      unaswerable embarrassments for evolutionists, but easily seen as a
      natural consequence of changes wrought by dramatic
      catastrophes. "Something" triggered off a genetic change in all the
      fauna of the southern hemisphere so that they all began reproducing
      in a different way to their identical cousins in other regions.

      The same single landmass theme holds true for the spread of
      civilization from a common source, with little in the way of oceans
      or mountain chains to hinder them - until rudely disrupted and torn
      apart by a universal calamity.

      I see no difficulty with the linguistic connection Clyde Winters
      makes between Sumer and South America, or with the artifacts that
      Bernardo has uncovered that give such solid support for a vast and
      widespread megalithic culture. In North, South and Central America
      (not to mention throughout the rest of the world) the scattered
      remnants of that common civilization are still found thrust up high
      in the mountains, or isolated in the now-desert coastal plains, the
      inland deserts and jungles etc., with their characteristic "Tower-of-
      Babel"-type Sumerian ziggurats.

      In my picture of the ancient world, the tribe of Judah fled Egypt in
      the mid-15thc BC, together with the rest of Israel, in the midst of
      a world-wide conflagration that brought the old world to an end.

      I doubt anybody felt inclined to "go it alone" on the high seas at
      that time.(even the tribe of Dan)
