... . 42-52). Under the title 'Megalithic Astronomy- a Prehistorian's Comments', he reviews eight papers published in the Journal between 1971 and 1974, describing Thom's findings at several sites including Carnac, Orkney, Islay and Stonehenge. Atkinson accepts Thom's interpretation of the great fallen stone Er Grah at Carnac as being sited to serve as a common foresight for observations of the lunar standstills and does his own probability calculations to show that chance alignment is unlikely. Atkinson considers that the papers demonstrate experimental verification of the existence and value of the Megalithic yard and rod, and in his conclusion goes on to discuss the problem of the transmission of the required mathematical and astronomical knowledge in the apparent absence of written records. He also discusses the resistance of prehistorians to Thom's work, and here we are on familiar ground. 'It is Important that non-archaeologists should understand how disturbing to archaeologists are the implications of Thom's work, because they do not fit the conceptual model of the prehistory of Europe which has been current during the whole of the present century, and even now is only ...
115. Straka: Science or Anti-Science? [Pensee]
... ); the present arrangement can predict only lunar eclipses, and then only during one or two months in the winter (Hawkins); there is no such thing as the 56-year lunar eclipse Cycle claimed by Hawkins (Martin, et al.). (More about this may be read in Velikovsky's paper, "Decoding Hawkins' Stonehenge Decoded," in the May, 1972, Pensée. A future issue of Pensée will carry a paper by Dr. Euan MacKie, University of Glasgow, concerning the alignments claimed for various megalithic monuments by Thom and others.) Straka asks how the stones of Stonehenge might remain in their places while the walls of Jericho fell. Stonehenge Today and Yesterday, by Frank Stevens, curator of Salisbury Museum (London, 1936), provides the answer: "At first it may seem difficult to disentangle the chaos of fallen stone which meets the eye." In 1958 a work of partial reconstruction took place and some of the stones were lifted to their previous places. In his 1959 guide, Stonehenge, published by ...

117. De Grazian Discography (Reviewed) [SIS C&C Review $]
... of human knowledge, extrapolating from Velikovsky and constructing his own original theories. As with Velikovsky, the de Grazia assumption is that the celestial culprits in past global upheavals were the planets. Current astronomy confirms that though geological mayhem appears to have been the rule throughout the solar system, the physical evidence for recent orbital changes is wholly negative. The 'Best Buy' in neocatastrophism at the moment remains Clube and Napier's giant comet. The scientific plausibility of this at least allows progress to be made in all our areas of interest, from megalithic astronomy to archaeology and mythology. It even allows Duncan Steel to repeat Velikovsky's proposal that the pyramids were 'air-raid shelters', without risk of dismissal from his astronomical post! However, much of the work of pioneers of exoterrestrial catastrophe remains valid whichever celestial perpetrator is eventually found guilty. However for the astronomer, this identification may be critical: in the context of humanity' s direct experiences, I am reminded of quotation from Ogden Nash in Velikovsky's Foreword to Ages in Chaos. He was referring to those who might quibble about ...
118. Uriel's Machine: The Ancient Origins Of Science, by Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas (Review) [SIS C&C Review $]
... lore and the apocryphal Book of Enoch [1, which relates that Uriel showed the patriarch Enoch (Noah's grandfather) a structure through which the movements of the sun could be observed and measured. From the details, Knight and Lomas concluded that it was 'a sophisticated horizon declinometer for measuring the position of any bright object in the sky' and built a 'Uriel machine' on the site of a ruined stone circle in Yorkshire. They found it to be 'a highly accurate timing device' from which 'the lost physical principle behind the megalithic yard [was rediscovered'. Referring to Richard Rudgley's Lost Civilizations of the Stone Age (Arrow Books, 1999) they mention the controversial linkage of Indo-European, Uralic, Altaic, Chukchi-Kamchatkan of Siberia and Eskimo-Aleut as one linguistic super-family, the Eurasiatic, and its even more controversial linkage to Dravidian, South Caucasian, Nilo-Saharan and Niger-Kordofanian as a near-universal mother-tongue, Nostratic. 'The wide variety of current languages seems to have developed from a single global language that may have still existed 15,000 years ago.' Chapter 3 covers ...
119. A LEAD TO FOLLOW [Pensee]
... questions are discussed, and one cannot escape the feeling that historians, both orthodox and unorthodox, are prepared to grasp at scientific techniques when the results support their preconceptions, and to ignore or discredit them when they do not. Approaching the revised chronology from a more conventionally archaeological standpoint, we find strong support for the abolition of Dark Ages in Greece and the eastern Mediterranean in articles by Isaacson and Greenberg, as well as a challenge by Stiebing (of which more later). On the other hand, MacKie's work on the megalithic monuments of north-eastern Europe and their probable astronomical alignments appears to pose problems for the kind of radical changes in the Earth's motion in the 15th and 8th centuries BC proposed by Velikovsky. Here it is encouraging to find contributors able and willing to go beyond discussions of the details of Velikovsky's claim and to bring the results of their own research to bear on the questions which he raised. In the cosmological field also, Pensée contributors have done pioneering work. There are several analyses of possible combinations of planetary orbits which might fit in ...

... i) Surveys of the literature and mutual exchange of opinion; ii) getting in contact with experts in the different fields and with persons and groups with similar aims; and iii) the publicafion of AIfa, the Group's journal. The most popular study area so far has been parapsychology; another concerns itself with Velikovsky's cosmological theory. A "theme-issue" of Alfa dealing exclusively with Velikovsky is planned for later this year: although the journal is published in Finnish, this issue will include at least one paper in English, considering megalithic sites and ancient calendars in relation to Velikovsky's hypothesis. KRONOS, A Journal of Interdisciplinary Synthesis, c /o Prof. Warner Sizemore, Glassboro State College, Glassboro N.J. 08028. "The only journal of its kind: Devoted to the study of the work of Immanuel Velikovsky." Vol. 2, No. 3 of Kronos has appeared since our last issue went to press, and contains, besides various short items, seven articles covering the usual wide range of disciplines.
