... for the portrayal is exactly what we should expect to find given the catastrophic events he has described in connection with Venus and Mars but not necessarily in paleolithic times, of course. On page 15, the authors talk of some of the most fascinating pictures of snakes as being those made by the bushmen of S. Africa but that for some strange reason the snakes are often depicted with a pair of horns. The horn motif is of course only too well recognised by the catastrophist! On page 19, the authors state that aborigines believe that mystic serpents dwell in many lakes and can be recognised in certain features of the landscape. The Murray River is supposed to have been excavated by a gigantic burrowing serpent while the artesian spring near Coward Springs Station is believed to be the mouth of a snake with the hill behind it of the monster's head. While vindicating catastrophism, these mythologies must be anathema to uniformitarians. There are many other items of interest about snakes in the book which support the catastrophic motif from the idea of the long hollow tube representing the ...

63. Earth without a Moon [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 3 No 1: (Winter 1973) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered III" Home¦ Issue Contents Earth without a Moon Immanuel Velikovsky Copyright 1973 by Immanuel Velikovsky Democritus and Anaxagoras taught that there was a time when the Earth was without the Moon. Aristotle wrote that Arcadia in Greece, before being inhabited by the Hellenes, had a population of Pelasgians, and that these aborigines occupied the land already before there was a moon in the sky above the earth; for this reason they were called Proselenes (1). Appolonius Rhodius mentioned the time "when not all the orbs were yet in the heavens, before the Danai and Deukalion races came into existence, and only the Arcadians lived, of whom it is said that they dwelt on the mountains and fed on acorns, before there was a moon (2)." Plutarch wrote in "The Roman Questions": "These were Arcadians of Evander's following, the so-called Pre-Lunar people (3)." Also Ovid: "The Arcadians are said to have possessed their ...

66. Archaeoastronomy (maverick science) [Maverick Science Website]
... maverick science.com Artists menu Home Saturn Theory Venus Mars Myth Archaeo- astronomy Evolution History Site Map Home Archaeoastronomy Archaeoastronomy Babylonian clay tablet Archaeoastronomy, together with ethnoastronomy and related disciplines, seeks to measure a culture's interest in astronomical phenomena by investigating its astral lore, sacred rituals, calendrical systems, and architectural structures. The more anthropologists learn about ancient and aboriginal cultures, the more obvious it becomes how important a role celestial matters played in their intellectual life and sacred institutions. Already at the dawn of history in Mesopotamia, the planet Venus figures prominently in the earliest religious temples. Planetary worship is also widespread in Mesoamerica, where the observation and veneration of the various planets formed a virtual obsession. I have written extensively on the role of Venus and the other planets in ancient myth and religion. The following articles address important issues in archaeoastronomy: Planets and Suns in Neolithic Rock Art The History of the Solar System (PDF) Astral Religion in Ancient Egypt Martian Meteorites (PDF) ...

... Learning Programs, books, videos, audio tapes and television documentaries. More details on page 4. Cambridge Conference List Mass extinctions, small comets and old astronomical megaliths are just a few of the subjects discussed by the CCNet. Catastrophism is not only mainstream, but has hit the silver screen (no pun intended) with the release of "Deep Impact". Electricity in Astronomy Plasma and electricity continue to feature heavily in some of the astronomy discussions in Thoth and the Kronia List, and might even appear in some of the aboriginal artwork showcased on the back cover of this issue. But it's not all astrophysics, inside you'll also find reports on the Joshua Impact Event (page 9), whether the First Dynasty was pre-Flood or post-Flood (page 16), Julian Jaynes author of Origins of Consciousness (page 20), and forthcoming conferences on the Inspiration of Astronomical Phenomena (page 6), and the 90 th Anniversary of the Tunguska Problem (page 8).

68. Saturnists Play Marbles [SIS Internet Digest $]
... analyzed with regard to the Saturn theory, what kind of work is there left to be done? Dwardu: For one thing, a chronological sequence of events THAT SATISFIES THE RECORD. Ev: Agreed. Eric: Are there certain continents whose traditions have been neglected up to now and that still need such analytical work? Dwardu: In MY case- yes. Perhaps not quite NEGLECTED, and perhaps not necessarily CONTINENTS, but definitely myths from certain geographical areas not yet given serious attention. Again, in MY case, Australian aboriginal material comes immediately to mind; South America; huge areas in Africa; and elsewhere. Eric: What parts of the Saturn theory are well worked out and what parts still need more work and confirmation from independent mythological sources? Dwardu: In MY opinion, what still needs to be worked out is the number and characteristics of the Martian and Venerian catastrophes; the aftermath to the break-up of the Saturnian configuration. What still needs to be ASCERTAINED are Talbott's claims that (a) Saturn wandered prior to settling down in the ...

70. A Brighter Moon [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... A Brighter Moon Many traditions persist that at some time in the past the Moon was much brighter than it is now, and larger in appearance than the Sun. In many rabbinical sources it is stated that the Sun and the Moon were equally bright at first. (1) The same statement was made to de Sahagun by the aborigines of the New World: ? the Sun and the moon had equal light in the past.? (2) At the other end of the world the Japanese asserted the same: the Nihongi Chronicle says that in the past ? the radiance of the moon was next to that of the sun in splendor.? (3) Traditions of many peoples maintain that the Moon lost a large part of its light and became much dimmer than it had been in earlier ages. (4) In order that the Sun and the Moon should give off comparable light, the Moon must have had an atmosphere with a high albedo (refracting power) (5) or it must have been much closer to the earth ...
