211. A God by any other name: the Dead Sea Scrolls Deception by Michael Baigent & Richard Leigh [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... . Again the conclusion reached is that the Jesus of Christianity has all the attributes of a far older god; that Christianity is in general a 'tidied up' version of an older Judaism. The apocalyptic overtones are in fact a regression to the earliest days of Jewish religion when, in common with the rest of mankind, as depicted in myth the world over, the Jews feared the gods of the cosmos. El, the god on high, seceding to Yahweh, who brings into being fiery angels and heavenly beings causing catastrophes ... worship of Jesus 'as a kind of Adonis, of Tammuz, of Attis, or of any one of the other dying and reviving gods who populated the Middle East at the time.' All the miraculous elements of early Christianity are Pauline inventions derived from more ancient religions and the idea of the worship of the person of Jesus would have appeared as extreme blasphemy to the man himself. Small wonder, then, that in the hands of the church, the message of the Dead Sea Scrolls is not universally proclaimed. Jill Abery ...
212. CHAOS AND CREATION: CHAPTER 6: THE URANIANS [Quantavolution Website]
... ; "the systematization and regulation was known as rita (rite), which means etymologically 'set in motion' and has the idea in the Rig Veda of cosmic truth or order." The profound meaning of the word "rite" is suddenly apparent here; religious rite is aimed at rehearsing and repeating the original cosmic order so as to support and control it by physical means. I understand Varuna as the original benign and intimate heaven of Earth. The Vritryas are the dragon-like monsters of the falling skies. The Earth's surface ... feature of the whole world. That form became the principle god and creator of the new human. Now here is the enduring connection between the religious world and the factual world and it explains why quantavolution in all of its previous manifestations cannot be so far from traditional religion as evolution and uniformiarianism have always been. RELIGIOUS BEGINNINGS All new human nature came forth within a framework of time-based, terror-obsessed, and symbol-stressing behavior. Religion occurred in the human mind as the essential mediator among sky events, Earth events and human events. But ...
213. Alan Alford's The Phoenix Solution [SIS Internet Digest $]
... legendary 'Hall of Records' at least 6,000 years ago. This profound knowledge- of catastrophism in the heavens and on Earth- was adopted by the emerging Dynastic elite as a means of legitimising their rule as 'divine' kings. Over the centuries, the religious knowledge became encoded into the Pyramid Texts and numerous other myths and legends. But after several thousands years the original meaning of these myths was lost. It became possible for Alford to recapture the ancient wisdom, as a result of the painstaking work of Egyptologists during ... Solution http://www.eridu.co.uk Alford's theory is that a pre-dynastic race built the Great Pyramid and deposited at Giza certain scientific records which specifically included the catastrophic history of our solar system and the subsequent development of life on Earth. Alford presents evidence that the ancient Egyptian religion was an 'exploded planet cult', and suggests that they re-discovered this themselves in the legendary 'Hall of Records' at least 6,000 years ago. This profound knowledge- of catastrophism in the heavens and on Earth- was adopted by the emerging Dynastic elite ...

The Ritual of the Bacabs deals with religious symbolism, medical incantations, and similar matters. Early accounts written in Spanish by conquerors or priests. The most important of these sources is Diego de Landa's Relacion de las cosas de Yucatan (" On the Things of Yucatan") written about 1566. It ... the best description of post-Classic religion in Yucatan and other details of late Maya history and life. Other sources. To these sources may be added the observations recorded by modern anthropologists and ethnologists about present-day Maya, such as the Lacandones. In the Guatemalan highlands, ceremonies connected to the 260-day sacred calendar of the Maya survive, as do ancient prayers and information about Maya gods and goddesses in Yucatan and other areas. Now let us turn to the involvement of Charles Etienne Brasseur with Diego de Landa's alphabet and the Troano Codex: When ...

... punctures the myth more effectively than anybody has done before." Brian Inglis The Irish Independent "Milton's immensely readable book dispels many of Darwin's theories, not least of all his idea of 'the survival of the fittest'." Trisha Fermor The Courier "If a religious creationist had written it, no one would have paid attention. But Milton is a professional science writer and well informed on what is going on in the departments of geology and old bones." John Michell The Oldie "To those fed up with the atheistic ... of science faces the biggest challenge yet to one of its most basic beliefs: Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. An authoritative compilation of scientific findings." Neville Hodgkinson The Sunday Times Richard Milton's "Shattering the Myths of Darwinism"... could shake the "religion" of evolution as much as "Honest to God" shook popular Christianity 30 years ago." Leader Column The Times "Milton... utters some important warnings. We ignore them at our peril." Julia Neuberger The Sunday Times "In his ...
217. The Domestication of Cattle. Interdisciplinary Evidence in Support of Catastrophism [SIS C&C Review $]
... as statistical archaeology, zootechnology and comparative anatomy, it re-argues the case for the cultural-historical thesis, as expressed by the geographer Eduard Hahn at the turn of the century, that cattle were originally domesticated in western Asia by sedentary farmers and that domestication was deliberately undertaken for religious motives. In contrast, nineteenth-century materialistic economic theories would have had early man domesticating cattle gradually for economic reasons via hunting and, later, a nomadic, herding way of life, but the tools of modern science are here used to effect in substantiating Hahn's synthesis ... ancient religions, archaeology, zoology and cultural history to show that the Urus, a large, wild, intractable animal formerly spread widely throughout Asia, Europe and north Africa, was originally sought out for sacrificial purposes because of its enormous crescent-shaped horns. A pertinent argument in favour of this view is the fact that several other herd species such as bison, which were either more common or very much easier to tame, but which did not possess large crescent horns, were not domesticated at this earlier period. Relief from Deir el-Bahn ...
218. Velikovsky and Catastrophism: A Hidden Agenda? [SIS C&C Review $]
... that its present form was a craftily selected composite of various sometimes contradictory earlier sources, not an original document dictated by God to Moses. So extreme was this attack upon the Jewish Bible that, to quote a leading commentary at the turn of the century: "religious terms, ideas, institutions, once supposed to be peculiar to Israel, are now seen to be common to them and other nations; in some cases, moreover, priority clearly does not lie with the Hebrews.... Of late, too, ... conclusion: "if criticism had not already disintegrated the traditional theories of the Old Testament, archaeology in the latter half of the 19th century would itself have initiated the process." [ibid This multi-pronged attack on the Jewish Bible, this rejection of biblical history, religion and ethics, was a vast creation of 19th-century Europe, an attack on the Jews led almost exclusively by German scholars like Eichorn, Vatke, Reuss, Baur, Graf and Wellhausen and rising to 'the ultimate and supreme question- Wherein does lie the uniqueness of ...
219. The Velikovskian Upheaval: A Temporocentric Challenge [Kronos $]
... since we believe science is a relatively recent human achievement. If recorded history departs from present scientific theories there is no compelling reason to reconsider our existing explanations; rather, we simply redefine our past as nonscientific in the form of myths, legends, folklore, and religious faith. This in spite of the awkwardness that, in the words of Lynn Rose (1972:31), "if historical data conflict with astronomical theories, it is strange that history should have to be rewritten to conform to these theories!" Scientists ... of forces unknown in the present era and there thus lingers about the doctrine a certain aroma of the supernatural even though not always directly expressed or avowed by its more scientific proponents." The slightest reference to creation in terms of a sudden outburst raises the spectrum of religion which, in turn, revives the epic when the forbearers of scientific inquiry struggled against the religious hierarchy. For the theory of evolution, with its doctrine of uniformity, to win out over its religious antagonists it was necessary to assault the theory of catastrophe that ...
220. Freud and Velikovsky Part II [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... " Oliver Freud declared, "the family gave up kashruth and most of the Jewish observances. In fact, the first Yom Kippur service I attended was in Berlin, in the thirties, after we got married. But as children growing up, except for compulsory religious training in school (under Austrian law), we never had any religious observance. We knew very well that we were Jewish and were quite comfortable about it. My father was very positive as to his Jewishness." 39 Indeed, no memory seems to ... the Communist and shock therapist Wortis, "why Jews ought not to be perfectly friendly with Gentiles; there is no real clash of interests. But a Jew ought not to get himself baptized and attempt to turn Christian because it is essentially dishonest, and the Christian religion is every bit as bad as the Jewish." 38 Wortis agreed in principle but not in practice; he supported the Stalin-idolizing state that financed the Greek Orthodox Church while striving to destroy Judaism in every shape and variety. Evidently Freud did not consider his observance ...
