... the first ballgame was played between cosmic gods and divine children, the latter of which victoriously turned into sun and moon. The iconography of ancient ballcourts together with the images of cosmic deities and the costumes and gestures of the ballplayers, documented in various codices, are equally related to Mesoamerican cosmologies [4 ]. Despite this unambiguous evidence, both historians and anthropologists alike have been unable to uncover the hidden meaning, religious function and cosmic symbolism of the Mesoamerican ballgame. Whereas most scholars agree that the game re-enacted some kind of cosmic conflict, their scenarios and interpretations differ considerably [5 ]. According to one school of thought, the ballgame imitated a war between the sun and ...

... what they mean are as pathetic as Lord Brougham. "Garbage in, garbage out"- as they say in Computer Science. When I dare to date the Egyptian Twelfth Dynasty on the basis of the El-Lahun Papyri, Wells will not have it; but he goes much further than that, and rejects "the entire methodology used by both historians and Egyptologists," which, he claims, "is certainly not a reliable astronomical determination of any date in history." Why is it that Wells and so many others suddenly feel obliged to reject "the entire methodology used by both historians and Egyptologists"? Is it because I had used that same methodology and have found ...

... happens over the next ten years is of vital importance to all of us; with a large global population and complex technological society, some plans now being made by governments and international agencies (construction of dams, roads, and other big projects) will have repercussions for several decades at least, affecting the lives of our children; and both historians and those concerned with the long-term future of mankind must be uncomfortably aware that the environment here on Earth, especially the climate, changes considerably on a timescale of a few centuries. Changes in the output of heat from the Sun, or in the nature of the radiation it emits, will have profound effects if they occur on ...

... ..." (pp. 6-7); see my n. 45. To do this, various means were employed, the Amorite connection being one among many. Van Seters claims (pp. 75-76) the AKL was a product of "research" and may have been compiled as late as the time of Tukulti-Ninurta I. Both historians attempt to defuse the idea of the early AKL's exclusive function in terms of legitimizing Shamsi-Adad's reign. This is all very well as long as we remember that the AKL surely has a many-faceted purpose in which Shamsi-Adad's role indeed has some significance. Genealogies are certainly multi-functional creations and the AKL appears to be no exception. APPENDIX 2 An ...

... map is indeed evidence that good maps of the St. Lawrence river were available in Europe before 1492. In my opinion, the Behaim map is better than Sebastian Cabot's map of 1544 but not as good as the Lescarbot map of 1606. Anomalous early knowledge of Antarctica is conclusively documented by Hapgood, and demands explanation by conventional scholars, both historians and geologists. Figures 49 and 50, dealing with the Oronteus Finaeus World Map of 1532 and its Antarctic portion, respectively, reveal an outline of Antarctica astounding in its accuracy. This is no mere vague rendition, where each viewer sees what he wants to see. I noticed that the Antarctic coast is well defined, mostly ...

6. Catastrophism and Anthropology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... " Home | Issue Contents Catastrophism and Anthropology The Influence of Neo-Catastrophism on the Interpretation of Flood Rituals and Ceremonies Benny Josef Peiser School of Human Sciences, Liverpool John Moores University Introduction Only 150 years ago, most of Europe's leading scholars were convinced that the ancient flood traditions and festivals originated from natural catastrophes that had occurred during man's early history. Both historians and anthropologists were able to point to a rich variety of catastrophe legends found throughout the world. For more than 2500 years these ancient traditions were generally viewed as historical. Not only did all the famous scholars of antiquity write about these natural disasters but, moreover, during the 18th and 19th century the newly established science of geology ...
