31. Exploring The Saturn Myth [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1994 No 1 (Jan 1994) Home¦ Issue Contents Exploring The Saturn Myth Evidence from Australian Aboriginal Story, Symbol and Art in support of the Polar Configuration by Allan Beggs Representation of the Polar Configuration (David Talbott, 1991) For several years now I have been studying and researching the Theory of the Saturn Myth, written by North American researcher, David Talbott, and published as a series of essays in the journal AEON. The theory involves an ancient celestial phenomenon termed a 'polar configuration' and its impact on all of the major themes of world myth and symbol. In each of the essays the author challenges his readers to search out the themes and test the ability of his model to 'predict' certain (and very specific) mythological connections and/or associations. However, in five major essays on the key subject, world mythology, no mention had been made of Australian Aboriginal mythology. Not knowing much about the subject, but by then familiar with the broad themes of Talbott's theory, I decided ...

33. Aboriginal Watercolourist [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1998:1 (June 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents Aboriginal Watercolourist From: Allan Beggs, firstname.lastname@example.org News of interest to catastrophists: Albert Namatjira, an aboriginal watercolourist of the 40's and 50's was an Arunda man from Hermannsberg in Central Australia. He trained under a European artist, Rex Batterbee, creating beautiful watercolour landscape images of his country. His art form and style was purely European watercolour technique and expression. That's how he was trained, that's how he painted. And Australia acclaimed him. What we didn't know at the time, but we do now know, is that he painted, in European style, his sacred places. One of these paintings, in the Art Gallery of NSW, shows a magnificent TWO-peak mountain framed in the recumbent crescent formed by the end of a valley, with a pool in the foreground. The Art Movement which gave rise to the paintings on the AAIA site did not begin until around 1971 in Papunya, Central Australia, not very far from Hermansberg, in fact. ...
34. Oceanic Impact may have Inspired Aboriginal Legend [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1998:1 (June 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents Oceanic Impact may have Inspired Aboriginal Legend From: Bob Kobres, email@example.com Date: 27 April 1998 Sunday Herald, Sun, July 6, 1997 http://omzg.sscc.ru/tsulab/anew.html Tsunami Link to Legend by Graeme O'Neill An Aboriginal legend long thought by historians to mark the arrival of white men in Australia may refer to a giant tidal wave. Geologist Professor Ted Bryant believes the legend of a "white wave" that wiped out Aboriginal culture more than 200 years ago tells of a natural disaster that devastated the south coast of NSW after a comet strike in the Tasman Sea. Most historians had assumed the legend referred to the coming of white men to Sydney Cove in January, 1788. Prof. Bryant told a major international research conference in Melbourne this week that the tidal wave was one of two giant tsunamis that hit the NSW coast in the past 1000 years. The Wollongong University geologist estimates the tsunami was moving at about 350kmh when it hit ...
35. Obituary: Allan Beggs [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon V:5 (Jan 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents Obituary: Allan Beggs (1936-1999) It is with much regret that we report the passing of Allan Beggs, an enthusiastic advocate for the Saturn theory. Allan suffered a heart-attack while at his computer, no doubt in the midst of flaming someone on-line. A life-long resident of Australia, Allan was 63 at the time of his death on October 5th, 1999. Allan holds the distinction of being the first independent researcher to point to Aboriginal rock art and myth as providing compelling evidence for the reconstruction offered by the Saturn theory. In "The Story So Far," a privately distributed publication dating to March 1990, Allan cited a number of obscure myths from various Aboriginal tribes documenting the importance of the respective planets in their cosmology. In retrospect, it is obvious that this evidence constitutes an important link in the Saturnists' argument since it is most unlikely that the Aboriginal traditions were influenced by the astral religion of ancient Mesopotamia, an oft-heard objection to the theory. And, ...
36. Oceanic Impact may have Inspired (Australian) Aboriginal Legend: An Addendum# [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1998:1 (June 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents Oceanic Impact may have Inspired (Australian) Aboriginal Legend: An Addendum From: Duncan Steel, firstname.lastname@example.org Date: 28 April 1998 With regard to the interesting item Bob Kobres sent you, given a heading "Oceanic Impact may have Inspired (Australian) Aboriginal Legend", here is an addendum. There is another legend retold in the mythology of the Paakantji people of the Darling River (from around Wilcannia in western New South Wales). This tells of a foreseen falling star which brought fire and a following flood, killing many people and leaving behind strange stones. Sound familiar? The story is told in the (picture) book The Story of the Falling Star by Elsie Jones, Aboriginal Studies Press, Canberra, 1989 (ISBN 0-85575-199-1). A speach bubble from a lady's picture on the back cover (perhaps Elsie Jones) says "This story is so old we don't even know how old it is...Malkarra was a special kind of person ...

... the excellent discussion of the catastrophic effects of Earth colliding with a planetoid, meteor. or comet. This has been well thought out and calculated, and includes a discussion of the shock waves and their noise, earthquake propagation, tidal waves, dust clouds, etc. In this department the book looks more solid (and is better referenced) than Clube& Napier's Cosmic Serpent. Erratum J. E. Aitchison of New South Wales writes in to correct an error in Workshop 5:1, p. 40: the Australian Aboriginal comments quoted do not come from the book Australian Dreaming, as cited, but instead from an article "Aboriginal Stellar Myths" by Daisy M. Bates, published in the Australian 26th July 1924, p. 226. \cdrom\pubs\journals\workshop\vol0503\21books.htm ...
38. Cuban Prehistory [Kronos $]
... is shrouded in mystery. Unlike the great cosmological civilizations, of what the first Iberian conquerors and explorers called Tierra Firme, the Indian peoples of Cuba and adjacent islands of the Caribbean left no vast monumental ritual and urban centers, nor did they possess any system of inscriptions such as the Mayan glyphs that still tantalize scholars, ranging from classical archaeology to computational cryptology. Strangely, in view of the proximity of Cuba's westernmost extension to the Yucatan peninsula, there is not the slightest evidence of any contact between the Maya and the Cuban aborigines. Nor, are their traditions, legends, and myths available to us. As peoples, the Cuban aborigines ceased to exist within the first century after the Spanish conquest. The greatest monument to them is poignantly negative: La Historia de la Destrucción de las Indias, by Father Bartolomé de las Casas-- an impassioned denunciation of the pitiless extermination of the natives of the Antilles by the newcomers from the Iberian peninsula. The tasks of physical labor fell to black men imported from West Africa and, somewhat later, to ...
39. How And When The Americas Were Peopled [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 59: Sep-Oct 1988 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects How And When The Americas Were Peopled We quote from R. Gruhn's abstract in the journal Man. "A study of aboriginal language distributions supports Knut Fladmark's hypothesis that the initial source of entry of peoples into the New World was along the Pacific Coast rather than through the interior ice-free corridor. The greatest diversification of aboriginal languages, as indicated by the number of language isolates and major subdivisions of language phyla, is observed on the Pacific Northwest Coast, in California, on the northern Gulf of Mexico Coast, in Middle America, and in South America. Following a conventional principle of historical linguistics, it is assumed that the development of language diversification is proportional to time depth of human occupation of an area. A review of the archeological evidence from the areas of greatest language diversification indicates a time depth of at least 35,000 years for human occupation of most of the Americas." (Gruhn, Ruth; ...
