... which would downplay the importance of ancient mythological traditions, we seek a more "objective" source of evidence with which to explore the nature of the ancient cosmos. In addition to the ancient literary traditions, another record exists which offers evidence in support of recent changes in the solar system namely, prehistoric rock art. Ancient skywatchers from around the world have been drawing pictures of the celestial bodies since time immemorial, and the fact is that such pictures cannot be made to accord with the current arrangement of the solar system. Prehistoric Petroglyphs of the Sun The discovery in 1879 of spectacular paintings in the caves of Altamira (Spain) was initially met with disbelief and ridicule, so radical was the idea that Stone Age men could have created art of such sophistication and beauty. It was only upon the discovery of similar finds in France, Portugal and elsewhere in Europe that the scientific world became forced to accept the reality of Paleolithic rock art. Indeed, it has since been shown that rock art is abundant upon all inhabited continents and spans a period of time ...

4. A RECENTLY DISCOVERED "BOOK" OF PETROGLYPHS [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 20: Mar-Apr 1982 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects A RECENTLY DISCOVERED "BOOK" OF PETROGLYPHS Unfortunately, we cannot reproduce this huge assemblage of marvelously intricate petroglyphs here; but be assured that they are not haphazard doodlings of unaccomplished primitives. We quote from the author's abstract: "A recently discovered sheltered rock scar with red pictographs, in Jalisco, west Mexico, is a major addition to the rather meager data on pictographs in Mesoamerica. It appears to contain a complex set of data pertaining to the cosmology of the relatively unknown Indians who inhabited the Jalisco coast during the last Pre-Hispanic period. Analysis of the scar has incorporated both the artistic symbolism of the nearby Huichol Indians, and concepts developed through archaeoastronomy. This analysis suggests that the ceiling pictographs record the use of sky transits of the sun, Venus, or the constellation Orion as wet season/dry season calendric markers. Wall pictographs show the sun on the mountainous horizon, below which is the earth filled with ...
5. Rock Art and Petroglyphs in Valcamonica [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1997:1 (Sep 1997) Home¦ Issue Contents Rock Art and Petroglyphs in Valcamonica http://www.geocities.com/Tokyo/2384/index.html From 1988 the Società Cooperativa Archeologica Le Orme dell'Uomo (Footsteps of Man Archaeological Cooperative Society) is investigating early Rock Art (from Neolithic to Iron Age) at the most important sites in the Italian Alps: Valcamonica and Valtellina. With the WEB we are working on the biggest data "store" ever created by man: if Rock Art plays a good role in the WEB, it's sure that the WEB could play the best role for Rock Art. We need to exchange data (texts) and images (pictures and tracings): it's time to propose to all Rock Art researchers and organisations the advantages of finding a place in the web, and creating a specific Web pages for each Rock Art site and/or culture. We hope you will find here some useful information. Please help us in maintaining this site, with all kind of information (links, Web ...
6. The Alphabet and the Saturnian Configuration [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon V:5 (Jan 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents News Flash The Alphabet and the Saturnian Configuration Tania ta Maria A set of new petroglyphs were discovered in 1954 by John Darnell, an assistant professor at Yale University, in a remote desert area of Egypt. Dated to 1800 B. C., they are thought to be the prototype of the Hebrew, Greek, Cyrillic, and Roman alphabets. P. Kyle McCarter, of the Johns Hopkins University, has stated that these petroglyphs are "as close as we have come to the invention of the alphabet." Alphabetic writing which had been discovered earlier in the Sinai desert had been dated to 1500 B.C. Previously thought to have been the work of Canaanite workers, the location of the new discoveries has now prompted the belief that these same foreigners developed the proto-alphabet while in Egypt. This, according to Darnell, means that "Egypt is really the home of alphabetic writing." The location of the find was kept secret until the petroglyphs could be properly photographed in the ...
7. Ogham Inscriptions In West Virginia? [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 27: May-Jun 1983 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Ogham inscriptions in west virginia? Several petroglyphs in Wyoming and Boone counties, West Virginia, long-identified as random Indian doodling with little message content, may actually be Celtic Ogham writing. Translations of the petroglyphs reveal several Christian messages, as in the segment illustrated below. Based upon the style of the Ogham, these petroglyphs may have been chiseled some time between the early Sixth and late Eighth centuries. The Ogham writers may have been Irish monks who, after the fashion of St. Brendan, sailed west from Europe during this period. (Pyle, Robert L.; "A Message from the Past," p. 3. Gallagher, Ida Jane;" Light Dawns on West Virginia History," p. 7. Fell, Barry; "Christian Messages in Old Irish Script Deciphered from Rock Carvings in W. Va.," p. 12.

8. Plasma in the Lab and in Rock Art [Thunderbolts Website]
... appears as two dots or, if bright enough, as a bar under the “stick man ’ s” arms. The trifurcated bottom end of the axial current is commonly interpreted in rock-art lore as the “stick man ’ s” genitalia. Peratt calls this a “basic” form taken by discharge instabilities, and significantly it is an image common to rock art around the world. (See image on the right.) Peratt ’ s investigation of rock art led him to collect hundreds of thousands of digital photographs of petroglyphs (images scratched or pecked into rock) and pictographs (images painted on rock). He has classified them into 84 categories that correspond with the quasi-stable forms of the laboratory plasma discharges. “Many petroglyphs, apparently recorded several millennia ago, have a plasma discharge or instability counterpart, some on a one-to-one or overlay basis. More striking is that the images recorded on rock are the only images found in extreme energy density experiments; no other morphology types or patterns are observed,” Peratt writes, “The inward rise ...
9. On the Crab Supernova of 1054 [Kronos $]
... star appeared in Gemini in the year 446 H. (12 April 1054- 1 April 1055 A.D.)." For clarification, due to differing constellation definition and precession of the equinoxes, what appears in Taurus today appeared closer to Gemini in 1054. Thus, we have unambiguous, independent sightings of an extraordinary celestial event from three cultures- Chinese, Japanese and Arabic. It is clear from the contexts that the records of these sightings are indigenous to the exclusion of a diffusionary explanation. With regard to certain pictographs and petroglyphs in the American Southwest, purported to record the Crab Supernova, this is another matter. It is possible that Sagan may have overstated the validity of these drawings which appear at several sites and show the juxtaposition of a crescent object above a star-like object. The orientation of the crescent with respect to the "star" is not uniform from site to site, casting doubt on their representing the same phenomenon.(3) Even J. C. Brandt, the most vocal investigator of the glyphs, admits that absolute dating ...
