41. Columbus Exonerated: Viking Blamed [Science Frontiers Website]
... Viking Blamed About 1500 A.D., a major epidemic of syphilis swept across Europe. Up until this time, this continent had been thought to have been free from this dreaded affliction. In the New World, though, archeologists had uncovered many skeletons dated well before 1500 showing unmistakable signs of syphilis. America was obviously the source of this scourge, but how did it ever get to Europe? Of course, every child knows that Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492. It seemed pretty certain that Columbus's men and the American aborigines had been very, very friendly. Actually, about a dozen pre-1500 skeletons displaying hints of the disease had been found in England and Ireland, but they were not convincing enough to dethrone the Columbus theory. Recently, however, several additional syphilitic skeletons were dug up at a medieval friary in northeastern Britain. The earliest of these bones date back to about 1300. In fact, the new evidence suggests that there was a geographically limited mini-epidemic of syphilis in Britain about this time. Columbus was now off the hook, but ...
42. Another Anomaly Bites The Dust [Science Frontiers Website]
... Sourcebook Subjects Another Anomaly Bites The Dust Some mysterious cultural practice of ancient people all over the world resulted in curious grooves on tooth surfaces. The grooves occur near the cementoenamel junction, mostly on molars and premolars, and usually on males. The diameter of the channel between adjacent teeth varies from 1-4 millimeters. (See SF#61 for an earlier item on the subject.) Proposed solutions to this riddle range from bacterial attack, to gritty saliva propelled through the teeth, to the overenthusiastic use of bone toothpicks. But Australian aborigines have provided a more convincing explanation. When the aborigines want, thin, strong cords for fashioning spears and spearthrowers, they take a pliable, thinned, kangaroo sinew, pull it down between their molars like dental floss and begin "stripping" it, by pulling it back and forth. They get their thin cords this way but also grooved teeth. (Eckhardt, Robert B.; 'The Solution for Teething Problems," Nature, 345: 578, 1990.) Comment. Unless someone comes up with a fatal ...
43. Obituary: Allan Beggs [SIS C&C Review $]
... lost an acquaintance who had been a very friendly, cheerful fellow with a mischievous sense of humour. Allan was a Velikovskian from the early days, subscribing first to Pensée and then to its successors and sister publications. His own researched offerings were limited and few saw exposure in the journals. His favourite medium was the electronic postings and the cut and thrust of that near instantaneous process. It was in this medium that many were exposed to Allan. His enthusiasm knew no bounds when he took on an idea. His research into Aboriginal Rock Art motifs and their catastrophist implications was impeccable. Had he continued with this research he could have added much to our understanding of the past. He then became enamoured of the Saturn or Polar Configuration, preaching its strengths to anyone and everyone. His latest obsession saw him arguing for the acceptance of the work of Fomenko. Few were prepared to embrace this concept and that reticence caused Allan to argue his obsession most forcefully. Farewell Allan, the debate and the search for truth is over for you.

... innermost creative abilities: "For the situation is this: so long as a biographical hair star such as Hesperus is branded on my mind with its inhabitants..." There is no need to ponder on the motive which impels the author to prefer Hell on Venus to Hell on Earth, but it is clear that the term "biographical" here indicates the recollection of suppressed occurrences in primeval times (4). 3. Another method of reclaiming the past for the present, that of studying the primitive cultures of the aborigines, has scarcely been tried. These peoples at the dawn of history might be supposed consciously to retain conceptions which modern man keeps in his unconscious. It is with one aspect of this that the present paper will concern itself. Charles Dupuis describes in Origine de tous les cultes, ou Réligion universelle (Paris, 1795) how, when the "primitive made the first attempts to comprehend the order of the universe he too projected himself into nature....The part of his being which he first read into the external world ...

47. Our Universe: Unlocking its Mysteries [SIS Internet Digest $]
... darker circle superimposed in the center? Our sun looks nothing like that. In many different cultures we see the symbol of a crescent with a star at its center. How could this be when there is no star or planet closer to earth than our moon to form such a configuration? And most importantly, why do so many disparate and far flung ancient cultures, peoples who could never have been in contact with one another, such as the Sumerians, Egyptians, Chinese, Native American Indians, Mayans, Babylonians, Australian Aboriginals, and many others, all tell the same story and draw similar pictures. Planets in the Northern sky: If these ancient writings were based on valid observations rather than fantasy, what do they tell us? Cochrane, Cardona, and Talbott theorize that Earth formerly moved in an assembly of planets having no resemblance to our current solar system. As seen from Earth, several planets appeared together as towering forms in the northern sky. In its stable phase, the planets moved in "collinear" equilibrium- they stayed in ...
48. Myth, Mandala, and the Collective Unconscious [Kronos $]
... earlier motifs had already developed from events associated chiefly with Saturn and Jupiter (Kronos and Zeus). In psychology, according to Jung's observation and analysis, the cosmic monster motif is one of several archetypal forms which frequently appear in dreams and fantasies of modern individuals, some of whom, such as young children, seem unlikely to have acquired the ideas or images through personal experience. Jung concluded that the unconscious was in part collective; that instinctive trends toward certain mental patterns had developed through adaptive evolution and continue to function as "aboriginal, innate, and inherited shapes of the human mind."(4) Freud, founder of psychoanalysis, maintained that unconscious phenomena traced primarily to a complex of sex instincts whose basic quality and pattern of development is inherent in the biological nature of the individual. Freud chose the Oedipus drama to characterize the complex he considered to be the nucleus of human personality and cultural development.(5) For its component elements of parricide, incest, and castration (among others) one finds parallels in the king-of-heaven drama as well ...
... shipping routes. Both the Nazca desert markings in Peru and the serpentine mounds in the Ohio River Valley look as though they had been designed for aerial viewing. Even if we decline to postulate the ancient astronautics proposed by Erich Von Däniken,(11) it may be that we should consider the possibility of an ancient aerial technology of purely terrestrial origin, of the sort suggested by Andrew Tomas.(12) Finally, an ideological question remains. If diffusionist logic is followed consistently, it obliges us to conclude that the American aborigines had not only urbanism but horticulture introduced to them by more sophisticated peoples from the Eastern Hemisphere and that, without such external stimulus, they would never have developed a way of life more advanced than that of nomadic hunting and food-gathering. Van Sertima has quite properly protested the application of a comparable logic to the cultural evolution of sub-Saharan Africa.(13) Are Red men now to be intellectually denigrated in the way in which Black men used to be? Here we confront ethical and social as well as historical and scientific problems ...
