Need sources/info!! In Chinese mythology dragons are usually benevolent. I stress usually. The four main dragons are the dragon kings of the North, South, East and West. The reside in their own realm under the sea and are part of the group of gods who bring rain to the people. But they can be vicious and evil, sometimes it is their sons the dragon princes who commit the crimes and due to family honour and pride the Dragon Kings are forced to back their sons up. There also a few other dragons here and there like the blue dragon spirit who inhabits the his constellation. As for their description- long like the serpent, head like a ...
22. The Dragon and the Pearl [Thunderbolts Website]
... home updates news and views picture of the day resources team a role for you contact us Credit: Rens van der Sluijs home pic of the day archive subject index abstract archive Links: Holoscience Electric Cosmos The Universe Plasma Cosmology Society for Interdisciplinary Studies educational resources Aeon Journal May 18, 2006 The Dragon and the Pearl East-Asian dragons are almost invariably portrayed with a red sphere in their mouths, in front of their mouths, or-- as in Javanese art --on top of their heads. In the famous lantern procession celebrated by Chinese people on the 15th of the first month, the red sphere precedes the dragon. This sphere is called huoh chuh, "fire pearl". Shown here is a Buddhist gong-hanger produced in 18th- or 19th-century Korea. The flames that erupt from the pearl in some representations parallel the flames exhaled by dragons in other traditions. But what does the red sphere signify? And where does the image of the dragon itself come from? Scholars agree that the pearl is celestial. But does it signify the moon, as some ...
23. The Birth and Odyssey of Halley's Comet: From 2484 B.C. to the Present Time [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... comets, and 95 percent of the satellites. In its approach this essay is, among other things, the repeated application of Occam's Razor i.e., where there are two or more possible answers to a scientific question, the most simple and direct answer is probably the correct one. The above data have logical ramifications that should quicken the heartbeat of the curious and will "blow the socks off" the cautious uniformitarian! The History of Halley's Comet, Part I The presence of Halley's Comet has been documented for 2200 years in Chinese astronomical charts. Years of appearances of comets were noted, and every appearance of Halley's Comet, except two since 239 B.C., is entered on those astronomical charts and accounts.[1 Earlier, Halley's Comet made an appearance about 544 B.C., while Daniel (in Babylon) was a student of astronomy and heavenly movements. This is an implication that Daniel saw the Comet. There is a tradition that Daniel was the mentor of Zoroaster, who soon thereafter, in Persia, founded a religion involving celestial or cosmic ...
24. The Enclosed Sun-Cross [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... world. (2) The tradition is apparently universal. The Navaho Indian narration of the "Age of Beginnings" speaks of an ancestral land from which the inhabitants were driven by a great catastrophe. Among the occupants of this remote home, some say, were "First Man" and "First Woman." Most interesting is the means by which the land was watered: "In its centre was a spring from which four streams flowed, one to each of the cardinal points..." (3) The Chinese paradise of Kwen-lun, adorned with pearls, jade, and precious stones, lay at the centre and zenith of the world. In this happy abode stood a central fountain from which flowed "in opposite directions (4) the four great rivers of the world." (5) Four rivers appear also in the Hindu Rig Veda: "the noblest, the most wonderful work of this magnificent one [Indra, is that of having filled the bed of the four rivers with water as sweet as honey."

25. Tektites and China's Dragon [Kronos $]
... Carter Sutherland, professor of medieval English at Georgia State University, Atlanta, wrote an article titled "China's Dragon," which appeared in the winter 1973-74 issue of Pensee."' In that article, Dr. Sutherland presented some evidence in support of Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky's identification of the dragon as the proto-planet Venus when, around 1500 B.C., this heavenly body plagued the Earth in the form of a newly-born comet. In presenting his evidence, Sutherland relied exclusively on the dragon form as it evolved through the years in Chinese art. He was able to conclude, among other things, that the dragon in Chinese art did not go back further than 1500 B.C. and that it probably originated then. The article was well researched but it could have been strengthened by the inclusion of data concerning comets, other than the proto-planet Venus, which have been known to take the shape of a dragon. One such comet is described in Geoffrey of Monmouth's The History of the Kings of Britain: "There appeared a star of marvelous bigness and brightness, ...

27. On Prediction in Science [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Jupiter which rotates mathematically.” The wondrous thing is: how could Kepler have known of the red spot in Jupiter, then not yet discovered? It was discovered by J. D. Cassini in the 1660 ’ s, after the time of Kepler and Galileo. Kepler ’ s assumption that Galileo had discovered a red spot in Jupiter amazes and defies every statistical chance of being a mere guess. But the possibility is not excluded that Kepler found the information in some Arab author or some other source, possibly of Babylonian or Chinese origin. Kepler did not disclose what the basis of his reference to the red spot of Jupiter was — he could not have arrived at it either by logic and deduction or by sheer guesswork. A scientific prediction must follow from a theory as a logical consequence. Kepler had no theory on that. It is asserted that the Chinese observed solar spots many centuries before Galileo did with his telescope. Observing solar spots, the ancients could have conceivably observed the Jovian red spot, too. Jesuit scholars traveled in the early 17th ...

29. A MAMMOTH TALE! [Science Frontiers Website]
... Holly Oak pendant in SF#61, the possibility was raised that mammoths might have survived in North America until just a few centuries ago. Such survival is contrary to all mainstream thinking. Thus, when a datum comes along, even though it appears rather far-fetched, that testifies for the recent survival of mammoths, we must at least examine it. The datum in question (and it really is questionable) comes from the The Na tional Tombstone Epitaph, hardly part of the scientific literature! The article develops the theme that Chinese explorers landed in North America several millennia ago. The basis for such speculation is an ancient Chinese work called the Shun-Hai Ching, which is reputed to be about 3500 years old. In it, the Chinese explorers mention encounters with several strange animals. One is easily recognized as the collared peccary, known only in the New World, thus establishing the reality of a transPacific contact. Now, here is the piece de resistance: "Here we met a creature as tall as three men and so great that the earth trembled ...
30. The Chinese Wild Man [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 35: Sep-Oct 1984 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects The Chinese Wild Man The Chinese Wild Man seems to have much in common with the North American Sasquatch or Bigfoot, if we are to believe all the reports coming out of China these days. From western Yunnan and northwestern Hubei provinces come hundreds of recent sightings. Since 1976, four Chinese scientific expeditions have concentrated their attentions in the mountainous, thickly forested Shennongjia region of Hubei Province. So far, though, there are no specimens or even good photos. The major evidence for the existence of the Wild Man consists of anecdotal reports, many casts of footprints (18 inches long), hair (reddish), and samples of feces. The same situation prevails in North America as far as Sasquatch evidence is concerned. Summarizing recent sightings, the Wild Man is a bipedal creature, seven-feet-plus in height, usually covered with reddish hair, possessing human features, with no tail, having the ability to laugh and ...
