182. "VELIKOVSKY AND THE RECENT HISTORY OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM" [Pensee]
... Velikovsky himself"--a "second generation" of researchers not necessarily agreeing with all of Velikovsky's theses, but convinced that he has raised many I en questions worth examining. Open questions abounded during the proceedings: Is the radioactive decay "constant" really constant? (Most likely not, according to Dr. John Lynde Anderson.) Could planetary orbits have reversed their order of distance from the Sun in historical times? (Yes, if you are listening to Prof. Robert W. Bass, celestial mechanician.) Do the megalithic monuments in the United Kingdom bespeak catastrophes or uniformitarianism? (More research is needed, says Scotland's Dr. Euan MacKie.) Do the ancient Mesoamerican civilizations and folklore show evidence of Velikovskian catastrophes? (The case is good, claims Dr. William Mullen.) "Catastrophism has in recent years emerged as an interesting and respectable alternative to theories based on a uniformitarian viewpoint of planetary history. While we do not necessarily subscribe to the Velikovsky reconstruction of events in the Solar System within historic times, we do recognize Velikovsky's central ...

... of the Sun, for there was no correlation with the times of moonrise or moonset. Instead, a correlation was found between earthquake activity and new moon at 6am and 6pm. This was rather surprising, because the lunar tidal force is bigger than the solar tidal force. The answer, surely, lies outside the realm of gravitation and in the domain of electromagnetism. We are able to predict this because the Dragon Project (NEW SCIENTIST 13.1.83, p. 105) detected peaks of ultrasound activity and other radiations at dawn at megalithic sites. Ultrasound can be generated by moving fault lines: the major non-gravitational difference between moonrise and sunrise is the change of Earth's magnetic field lines as Earth turns towards the solar wind. The other correlation discovered is equally interesting. Major earthquakes appear to occur in California every 18.6 years as the Moon reaches its northern limit in a lunar nodal cycle. This cycle is responsible for the timing of eclipses; therefore there is a temporal correlation between eclipses and earthquakes, in this region at least. Perhaps speculation as to megalithic sites ...
184. "As Above, So Below" Earthquakes, Volcanoes, and Straight-Line Phenomena [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... unfortunate that scientists continue to equate metamorphic (sudden) change with "belief in magic,.... with supernaturalism." This condemnation of the doctrine of the scientific form of Catastrophism-- we term it Cataclysmic Development Theory-- is a post hoc error objectivists should reassess. Early humankind did not rely solely, as Landsberg would have us believe, on incantation to understand their planet and its environment. The recent works of Hawkins [1965, Thorn [1967, and others indicate this to be true. Ancient megalithic structures were accurately designed and patterned "from above for below," fully useful for their societies' needs. This is a fact no longer capable of successful challenge despite conventionalist debunkers' indignant outcries. The ancients studied the movements of the sun and moon, as well as certain bright stars, to detect any disturbance in their motion or time of appearance, because this meant a change occurring in the heavens and perhaps destruction to their way of life would result. They were intelligent enough to know that disturbances were caused by ...

... , the ball-markers on the outer surface were in two rows. They made up a double-track counting system. Now, then, were the respective tracks used to record separate events to the west and to the north? If we have a west-oriented track and a north-oriented track, do they in combination have special application to 22 star constellations? I leave this for further investigation, but I expect confirmation. VII. The Shape of the Sea-Circle Very early in this discussion I described the sea-circle as elliptical, as are some of the megalithic stone circles of the North Sea area. I could also cite special features about similar stone circles in South Asia. Some are double-rowed-- or should I say double-tracked, like Solomon's sea-circle? While I am not yet ready to discuss these other circles, I do wish to show that both the ancient Jews and many other peoples were able to describe orbital configurations, especially for the earth. This thought occurred to me as I labored over a mathematical analysis of the sea-circle. Without elaborating here, I found that the ...

... Atlantis is therefore invalid, even if one ignores the highly dubious nature of most of the parallels which have been drawn between them. Whatever the cause of the abrupt end of Minoan civilisation, it was not the eruption of Thera. One possible origin of the Atlantis myth remained, according to Peter James. He suggested that, possibly through the agency of the sea-going Phoenicians or even directly, the Egyptians may have retained some vague recollection of the prehistoric European cultures which were contemporary with their own pre-dynastic period. The distribution of the megalithic monuments and settlements of western Europe and North Africa during the Late Neolithic agrees quite well with the description in Timaeus of the extent of the Atlantean empire. C14 dates have shown that the technology of metal-working was known and practised in Europe before the dynastic period began in Egypt. Moreover, the earliest dates of the massive megalithic structures occur on the Atlantic coast, from which they spread inland and eastwards. The myths of the Iberians and other Celtic peoples of western Europe have strong parallels with the Atlantis story. According to Strabo ...

... were huge browsing creatures, related to the hoofed animals, but exceptional in that they had large claws instead of hooves. They flourished in the Miocene period, up to 5 Myrs ago, but vanished along with an enormous range of huge mammals before the Ice Ages. However, decorations on Siberian tombs dating from the 5th century BC depict animals resembling chalicotheres and a mysterious creature called the 'Nandi bear' reported from the forests of Kenya also sounds like a chalicothere, with large claws and a horse-like face. The myth of the megalithic yard New Scientist 4.12.93, Inside Science no. 67, p. 4 In 1967 Alexander Thom produced the results of many measurements of megalithic sites in Britain. By comparing the chances of distances between stones being random against what appeared to be a basic unit of length, which he called the 'megalithic yard', he showed that the random hypothesis was statistically invalid. However, there was another possibility, that the exactness of the 'megalithic yard' could instead have been a slightly less exact regular pace. In 1973 another mathematician ...

... gas balls, or terrestrial energy sources. A cometary body seems to have threatened the earth on diverse occasions, and we may guess that during other harmless appearances of comets they tended to produce apoplexy and hysteria. Patten compares the Celtic Sambaing festival and the myth of witches flying on broomsticks as derivative of comets; the same phenomena have lately been attributed to hallucinations, e.g. the use of plant drugs and poisons in archetypal witches' brew-- hemlock, mandrake, nightshade, etc. The enigma of the construction of so-called megalithic observatories is sky oriented, [43 yet the path of the dragon invokes earth fields and subterranean magnetic lines (a contradiction), prehistoric surveyor-priests, ley lines, and an enigmatic energy that has since disappeared. And the Nations were Driven Asunder Velikovsky claimed he learned of Claude Schaeffer only after he had written Ages in Chaos. [44 Schaeffer, the French archaeologist and director of excavations at ancient Ugarith in northern Syria, identified several episodes of natural disaster in ancient western Asia.

On the age of these petroglyphs Anati writes: "The most ancient Valley carvings dealing with sun worship belong to the end of the Stone Age, to the second half of the third millennium BC. At that period the sun is drawn as an isolated disc; seldom is it accompanied by a person with hands upraised in an attitude of prayer, ...
