... as being religious, administrative and storage centres, were representations of heaven and earth, the cosmos. The same may be true of the Hittite capital of Hattusas. Several features tend to this conclusion. The vocabulary used for the pillar or column supports the idea that columns and colonnades represented paths from earth to sky. A summary of the words connected with pillars may be useful, and will demonstrate the close relationship between the various languages. VOCABULARY The Greek kion may have a link with Egyptian. Kion, column, can also ... [different position of the accent, mean 'going'. The letter k betrays the presence of ka. Greek pyrgos, tower, contains the word pyr, fire, and possibly ka as well. Akkadian durr, tower, resembles the Latin turris, and Latin columna needs no translation. Egyptian has an, light tower, and ucha, pillar. It is reported that in 665 B. C. the Assyrians took from Egyptian Thebes two bronze-coated obelisks. Techen, another Egyptian word for a pillar, resembles the Greek techne ...

... electric discharge tube and other rheologically distortable conductors. This effect is considered to have been a principal factor in the maintenance of the polar column's integrity, without which the constituents of the vortex would have dissipated into space. As long as a heavy current travelled through the columnar vortex between the planets, continuously replenished by the charges carried within the solar wind, the polar column would have remained relatively intact. During periods of asynchronicity, which would have a disruptive effect on the entire polar complex, the integrity of the column would have ... integral. This pinch effect is a manifestation of parallel electric currents, as found in the constriction of ionized gases or plasmas in an electric discharge tube and other rheologically distortable conductors.

Wall calls for the Metonic cycle of 19 years and two hours,- the period of a cycle in which the phases of the Moon repeat on the same day of the month, discovered by the Greek astronomer Meton in 433 B.C. ... Babylonians may have become more concerned with operational data than with observational data, particularly if the operational data consisted of integral fractions and the observational data did not: Babylonians should not be faulted for failing to derive wholly accurate observational data.[10 Table 1 is a columnar display of various additive series including Fibonacci and Lucas, and in which a row K shows values of¦ xz-y 2¦ of Equation (5). Inset 1a is an extension of rows 1, 2 and 7 of Table 1. Table 1 shows PS-E ...

... date in the Persian empire period could conceivably offer a connection. However, there is another temple much closer to home with some similar features- the Jerusalem temple (pre- or post-exile, or that described by Ezekiel). Although the Jerusalem temples lacked the structural columns found at Ekron, there are similarities, e.g. east facing, store rooms along the sides, entrance porch and porticoed courtyard. Doubtless many more articles will be written about the inscription and temple. There were also some interesting small finds in the temple, ... crude Iron Age inscriptions from the Negev site of Kuntillet Ajrud which are generally interpreted as associating Yahweh with a female deity; this may offer another potential derivation. The temple complex in which the stone inscription was found includes the temple itself, with a 15m long eight columned hall and store rooms along the sides, and a large courtyard surrounded by porticos. The temple is part of Strata IC-IB, dated by the authors to the 7th century BC and thought to include the later Assyrian occupation and a succeeding phase of Egyptian domination following ...

... /James "letter together with a rebuttal... so the readers may judge for themselves". Whatever the effectiveness of this letter campaign, BAR subsequently invited this writer to submit a reply to Sagan. Regarding length, the guideline was "more than two columns is hard to print," which would have been about 750 words. With the assistance of Prof. Lewis M.

... being accosted by the Velikovskian heresy. Cardona's articles (as part of Kronos) are even available to members through the Society's book service! We are sorry if Mr Cardona feels that this denies him satisfaction, but with so much deserving material pressing for inclusion in our columns we cannot justify duplication of work published elsewhere. (So that readers may know the context: the wording to which Cardona objects reads: "The 'Forum' section includes letters from Dr Euan MacKie and the editors of SISR correcting the impression given by Dwardu Cardona ... and where its history can be followed up, and it is for this reason that Mr Cardona was declined extensive space in SISR. As for the parallel with New Scientist, we hardly feel that a few brief lines of review match a concerted attack by a regular columnist, or that our decision against granting space to a writer whose numerous contributions to Kronos we had regularly brought to our readers' attention is quite the same as New Scientist's campaign to protect its readers from ever being accosted by the Velikovskian heresy. Cardona's articles ( ...

... called Dr Velikovsky a "charlatan" in his Exploration of the Universe [26. The choicest coverage of Scientists Confront Velikovsky, however, occurred in the Kingston, Ontario Whig-Standard. Last May, Terence Dickinson, formerly editor of Astronomy and now a free-lance writer and columnist for Phenomena, the Toronto astrology journal, presented his tribute to Sagan and Huber in a two-column "Worlds in Collision: Counter-attack" [27. After citing seven of Sagan's points, Dickinson writes:" And so it goes on with argument after argument of ... allows they are "perhaps the most devastating piece of evidence to Velikovsky's theories". The next month, Queen's University professor of philosophy E. J.

Bond pointed out that Dickinson had quoted what Sagan said Velikovsky said and explained: "Not only did Sagan not demolish any of Velikovsky's theories, he did not present any of them with accuracy, and he offered no criticism to which ...

... whose primeval users carved and sculpted images upon the walls, may surprise the naive visitor. One expects to find a general similarity of the interiors. Not at all. Each interior is unique. Some are serpentine, others like grand ballrooms; some have magnificent silicate columns and startling naturally formed shapes; others are plain and dull, save for the signs of human occupancy. All are of limestone; all are elevated, if only slightly, above the flat river and stream valleys around. Why are they so different? Caves ... hill of Stylida, Naxos, Greece (Alt. 152m) [17. The top is a hard silicate with bits of ferruginous rock in the eroded (burst?) rubble. It nests among loose, hardly consolidated rocks that have fast fallen away from the columnar core. This phenomenon is usually seen as an ancient metamorphosis. Somehow the temperature of water-laden deep limestones and granites mounted and caused them to nearly melt and to rise. Limestone is a common environment of silicification. Silification is abundant around igneous metamorphism. In a ...

... "The rocks do date the fossils, but the fossils date the rocks more accurately... circularity is inherent in the derivation of time scales." [17 There are neither transition fossils in any number to mark the important fossil stages, nor complete fossil columns showing the evolutionary sequence; nor is evolution a hard set of facts. Yet index fossils with a doctrinaire chronology are imposed on the rocks and the rocks assigned dates. Then rocks of comparable type, though lacking fossils, are dated accordingly, and many of ... worthwhile to mention here that the "Choukoutien formation must be considered as a perfectly homogeneous and distinct stratigraphical unit." To our view, this signals the possibility that the Choukoutien scenario was brief, not enduring for a hundred centuries or a thousand centuries. An archaelogical columnar section illustrates the distribution of prehistoric culture in relation to deposits of North China, as known to Black and his collaborators half a century ago. I have tabulated it here. Note how crowded the holocene period is in relation to the Pleistocene and Pliocene sections, ...
