... inquiry was by Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679,) prepared when he was in his eighties. His long life as natural philosopher and political scientist carried him through the extensive revolutions and religious debates of the times and up to Newton and Whiston. This was the Hobbes whose view of mankind included the famous phrase that in a state of nature man's life was " ... his hapless victim and is so kindly as to provide a guarantee for him."

One cannot be satisfied with these explanations: a little piece, a casual ballad, a joke at the expense of the gods, or a pardonable escapade. Suppose the ... , for that matter, notwithstanding that its subject concerns exclusively the gods, a sacred hymn. If it is the last, it reflects the higher personal, profound and polemical religiousity of Homer; in this sense it should be entitled: 'The triumph of Mediterranean religion over the foolish and sacrilegious heresy of Olympia.

N. Talbott: loc ... various pagan deities, incorporating them as saints, and various pagan rites and festivals in an effort to satisfy newly acquired converts, so did Mohammed retain pagan elements in his new religion for similar reasons. In fact it can be honestly stated that all of the great religions of the world can be traced to those first primitive stirrings which humanity underwent beneath the ... appearance of the god which once dominated high heaven above: the primordial Saturnian configuration. However, that is a complex story which still needs to be unfolded in all its intricate details. One question of my own I wish to ask is simply this: how does any of the above fit the theory, proposed by Bill Napier and Victor Clube, which ...
113. Letters [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... writing- and that is believable in view of a most persuasive book. Sitchin's approach is to largely validate the Old Testament historically, and to harmonize it with other historical and religious writings of antiquity by the exhaustively careful evaluation of the translations of clay tablets, stelae, etc., unearthed by archaeologists of the past hundred years. His pattern traces the ... theories. One begins to feel that interest, extreme interest even, is not sufficient, and that total undeviating acceptance and belief is necessary, almost as though a new dogmatic religion is developing, and that interest in possible alternative schemes is heresy. I was brought to this state of thinking by the treatment, or perhaps lack of treatment, given to ... ., unearthed by archaeologists of the past hundred years. His pattern traces the same story of activity and the same panoply of "gods" from the Romans backward through the religions and mythologies of Greece, the Hittites, Hungians, Assyrians, Akkadians, Egyptians, Babylonians and the Hebrews in Chaldea, to the Sumerians. At that point he postulates a ...

... Solaria Binaria by contrasting electrical phenomena seen in the ancient world, as reported in the Scriptures, with the discoveries of the early electricians of modem science. The latter consider the religious nature of the human being and religiosity as a component in all human endeavors, including science. The book ends with a brief chapter on the search for the supernatural dimension of ... SIS Conference. Considering the idyllic location of Haliburton, Ontario, it is a tribute to de Grazia that his book could captivate one in such a setting. Two books about religion bracket the group above. They are God's Fire and The Divine Succession. The first prepares the reader for the electrical model developed in Solaria Binaria by contrasting electrical phenomena seen in ... ancient world, as reported in the Scriptures, with the discoveries of the early electricians of modem science. The latter consider the religious nature of the human being and religiosity as a component in all human endeavors, including science. The book ends with a brief chapter on the search for the supernatural dimension of existence. I enjoyed both books, the first ...
115. Earth In Chaos by Peter M. James [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... have prompted animist beliefs before such tangible vehicles of god on earth gave way to a distant but visible god in the sky. In this respect, Peter James discusses the possible religious usage of megalithic man's structures that demonstrate an ordered relationship to the most important markers of the Earth's seasons- the solstices- when the observed movement of the sun north or south ... applies to the moon in its orbit around the Earth and the circling of the stars in the night sky, James points out in a most logical fashion that if any ancient religion was based on the worship of a lunar or stellar deity, then the ceremonies would have to be enacted at night, when visibility was poor; in northern and western countries ... be doubted whether anyone can expect to wholly succeed in this, but if the country was more heavily afforrested, where fertile clearings were at a premium, then suitable sites for religio-calendrical purposes were probably relegated to remote hilltop positions astronomically suitable for clear horizon sightings. At the same time, to resist an erosion from weather, animal activity and all other forms ...
116. Exodus [SIS C&C Review $]
... , who were the people of the Exodus? Were the Israelites in any way different from the Canaanites? In the view of the Deuteronomist they were- but was their difference religious, the difference between post-Exile Judaism and pre-Exile pagan cults? The term 'Canaanite' appears to be derived from a variant of Akkadian kinakhu= purple, a reference to the purple ... been a pro-Egyptian lobby. Neither would Jewish refugees have fled into Egypt shortly before the Exile. The Egyptians appear to have earned their unsavoury reputation during the development of the Jewish religion in the post-Exile period. We might ask another question at this point, which might seem strange at first: did the 400 years of bondage really precede the Exodus [1 ... comet but it may be that the catastrophic Exodus phenomena and the more grisly parts of the Conquest really belong to a remoter past- the Biblical historiographer may have made use of religio-myth. It has been suggested that the events at the end of the 3rd millennium BC might coincide with the break-up of a comet known to the Akkadians as the goddess Ishtar, ...

... in fact, was identified with the planet Saturn by sources indigenous to their respective cultures. This fact alone offers us a powerful clue with regards to Quetzalcoatl's original identity. The religious rites associated with Quetzalcoatl also suggest a relationship to Saturn. Diego Duran, a Dominican missionary and one of the first outsiders to investigate the New World religion at first hand, ... we are met with the perplexing situation whereby a people sophisticated enough to compute the future occurrence of solar eclipses is apparently unable to discern that Venus --the favorite object of their astral religion --is in no way involved with eclipses! Since Venus is not currently associated with eclipses scholars are naturally inclined towards dismissing or overlooking such traditions. An examination of the evidence, ... funerary ritual of kings, specifically consecrated to Quetzalcoatl, the king's heart was symbolized by a turquoise colored stone. See W. Krickeberg, "Mesoamerica," in Pre-Columbian American Religions (New York, 1969), p. 52. As we know from a wealth of evidence Venus presented a turquoise appearance at the time of its association with Saturn. ...
... It does not seem arbitrary to assume that the Khazars absorbed, or even originally were, the remnants of some of the tribes of Israel. It is most probable that the religious reform among the Khazars, about which some tradition was preserved until the tenth century, is to be interpreted as an act of purification of the half-pagan religion that the exiles from ... influence and suzerainty sometimes reached as far west as Sofia.(7) The ruling class of the Khazars used Hebrew as its language, and the Hebrew faith was the official religion in the realm of the Khazars.

The Supreme Court was composed of ... persons of Jewish faith, two Moslems, two Christians, and one idolater of the Russian population.

In general, they throw doubt upon the efficacy of the official magic, as when Hamlet refuses to take Claudius' first court at ... to this day. Cardona is of course correct, but specific illustrations of the parallels between the stories of Oedipus, Hamlet, and Saturn-Kronos, and their reflection in myth and religion, will be presented later. For the moment, we need only keep Cardona's warning in mind that mankind has experienced several planetary catastrophes over thousands of years, each of which ... Gaster to Sir James Frazer's identification of resurrected gods as simply representative of annual seasonal cycles.
