... dwellings and public places to astronomical occurrences is generally granted. No one has yet found an ancient settlement capable of taking some shape that is not sky-oriented. The mind of today's scientist turns first to the Sun, then the routines of the current Sun -the rising and setting, the solstices and equinoxes -to answer all problems of ancient civilizations. When the ruins do not confirm to these directions, then Polaris, the current fixed star of the north, is assumed to guide the primeval builders. One preplexed writer suggested that the Mesoamerican Olmecs aligned their structures with the Big Dipper. When neither the north-south axis nor the solar behavior nor a constellation fits the orientation, then it is that the ancients could not tell directions well, or that the matter in any case was not important to the builders. What is absent from such reasoning? First, there is a failure to appreciate that the desire to orient to the skies was an obsession, a compulsion, an inescapable tradition, a sacred obligation, a proud duty. Second, the ancients, as far ...

... , while n= 13 would us allow to control Mars' years as well, the synodical period of which is 779.94 days, almost exactly 3 auxiliary years of 260 days. Precision, however, does not constitute a choice criterion, because it is the same for any n value. The Central American Calendar The aim of this long description is not to suggest a change to the Gregorian calendar (unthinkable today) but to demonstrate the rationale of the calendar used by Central American civilisations. Aztecs, Mayas, Toltecs, and Olmecs before them, had in common a calendar based on an auxiliary year of 260 days, divided into 13 months of 20 days (or 20 weeks of 13 days) and on a century of 52 years. The solar year was in its turn divided in 18 months of 20 days+ 5 end days. Extraordinary importance was given to all the combinations of numbers resulting from the intertwining of the 360 day year with the 260 day auxiliary year. It is evident that this calendar belongs to the family of calendars described above ...

... same way, as are those on Lake Titicaca. John Crowe agreed with the non-critical comments on the book. Hancock's main thesis is that some earlier advanced civilisation existed before the global catastrophe called the Deluge, which he says occurred round about end of the last Ice Age c. 12,000 BC. They left some residual knowledge and some of their works, the 'fingerprints' of this lost civilisation, survive to this day, including some of the world's great stone structures in Egypt and Central America, the mathematics of the Olmecs and Mayans and perhaps their early knowledge of world geography as captured in ancient maps. Hancock paid tribute to early investigators but did not mention Velikovsky. Trevor Palmer observed that Velikovsky was trying to shorten time whereas Hancock is trying to lengthen it. John Crowe said Hancock's thesis involves astronomical retro-dating to give the date of around 12/11,000 BC but changes in the earth's pole positions, orbit or length of day would render this inaccurate. Hancock is clearly a catastrophist but by implication he does not believe the polar axis ...

... was probably more spiritual defence than physical, as ditches are thought of as a no-go area to keep evil spirits out. Is this also the original function of the megalithic henges? Tropical forests around the world appear to have a far richer civilised history than they have been given credit for, since most important excavation has gone on in drier and more obvious areas such as Egypt and Mesopotamia. Buried heads Science Frontiers No. 123, May-June 99, p. 1 One of the earliest Mexican cultures was that of the east coast Olmecs, dated to 1400 BC. They are best known for the massive stone heads, up to 15' high and with negroid features, which they carved out of hard rock and then deliberately buried. A few hundred miles to the south in Costa Rica large stone spheres were also elaborately carved from rock and many of them were deliberately buried too. Were they associated with the myth of the decapitation of a sky god? American sacrifices National Geographic April 99, geographica, March 99, geographica The mysterious early city of Teotihuacan ...

... nearly 500 years before the Vikings developed sails and started their foreign campaigns. The sacrifices seem to have taken place at a time when a climatic disaster was causing crop failure and migration. Child Sacrifice Secrets of the Ancients BBC2 TV, 23.11.99, Channel 4 TV, 14.8.00 More and more cases surface of the universality of child sacrifice. The remains of children have been found at the Scottish recumbent stone circles (see above) and the dismembered remains of very young babies have also been found associated with the giant stone heads of the Olmecs in Mexico. The Phoenicians have long been regarded as sacrificers of children to their gods Baal and Astarte. Now an investigation at Carthage and a Phoenician site in Sicily seem to confirm this. Both sites have special burial areas called tophats with thousands of infant remains, together with animal bones. The babies do not appear to have been stillborn or diseased and are mostly boys. All the evidence points to the tophat as a special sacrificial area where babies were offered up to the goddess Tanit at times of war, pestilence or ...

... people were thrown out. They tried to go on the roofs but the roofs were falling down, they went into caves but the caves close themselves and all is burning and all is dark at the same it is only the light of the burning forests and volcanoes that makes light during the day, when it should be light. These descriptions are manifold and Spanish savants, when they came to this country in the 16th century, were [astounded? by what they read in the manuscripts of the Toltecs or Olmecs and so on. So a picture comes out of a devastated world which moves several times in a period...still in human memory or in a period of recorded history, when man could already write it down....So it is not a picture of a peaceful world, in which nothing interrupts the daily motion of the Earth, or of the yearly motion of the Earth and of other planets, but the period of peace is only temporary --at least up to today it is so.

... of the major periods as 8000, 1500, and 600 BC. 7 The timing may not be exact, but largely because of carbon dating it is now apparent that the generaltime periods suggested by Velikovsky are reasonable, and the legends generated during these periods correlate to those of other countries. Frank Waters is well known for his writings about the history and myths of the Native Americans and Mesoamericans. In 1975 he published 'Mexico Mystique' which is divided into two parts and describes the history and then the myths of the Aztecs, Olmecs, Mayas, Toltecs and other groups in Mexico. In his analysis of the mythologies of these cultures, Waters reviewed the work of Velikovsky which is relevant to these areas. He concluded that although the timing of some events still creates some problems, "....Velikovsky's theory runs parallel to Mesoamerican myth in general outline." 8 THE NON-CONSTANT CONSTANT The so called radioactive decay "constant" has recently been shown to be variable. For carbon dating, this may cause a negligible error for the cases under discussion, but ...
