... this mater dei was actually the feminine aspect of the Saturnian deity. More than anything else, the polar configuration had resembled a gargantuan figure towering above Earth's northern horizon with uplifted arms. Our ancient forebears had looked upon this effulgent phantasm as having been both male and female. The Saturnian deity had truly appeared androgynous. In mythology, however, this Mother Goddess displayed an uncanny and persistent habit of merging with the Venerian deities of all races.

203. Lactating Male Bats [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 93: May-Jun 1994 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Lactating Male Bats The scene is a Malaysian forest, where scientists are sampling canopy wildlife with nets: "When the researchers captured a group of bats in a wide-ranging effort to survey animals that inhabit the Malaysian canopy, they were dumbfounded to see that the eight adult male Dyaks [a species of fruit bat in the net all had visibly swollen breasts that produced milk upon being gently squeezed." No other wild male mammals are known to give milk, although inbred domestic male goats and sheep will-- rarely-- lactate. It is not known if the male bats actually nurse the young.

204. The Myth of the Goddess, Evolution of an image by Anne Baring and Jules Cashford [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... Age the advent of writing, allowing us the legacy of a written record of the religious beliefs of the time, makes interpretation of myth infinitely more complex. In the book by this stage we are aware of the authors' main message. They see this period as a watershed in the history of the earth mother goddess, a time when a belief in the wholeness of life under the auspices of the goddess of life, death and regeneration is disrupted by the advent of Aryan and Semitic invasions which brought with them the destructive male gods of war. These male gods are seen as sky gods, as the written records make it difficult to escape the conclusion that many of them are associated with the planets, though there is no pause for thought as to why these should be worshipped. As these patriarchal cultures took over, with human sacrifice as a response to fear and wars waged to collect sacrificial victims, the gentle goddess is suppressed, and women with her. The balanced goddess who embraced both life and death is cleft in twain and we are ...
205. Cuneiform and the Revised Chronology [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... a linguistic framework. His name is composed generally of two cuneiform signs. The first is "nin"; this word means "lady," and is the feminine of "en," "lord." The reading "Urta" is based on reading "Nin" as a determinative (a sign that comes immediately, before or after a word, which classifies that word). The Sumerian word for "man" is "Lú." Thus a word preceded by "Lú" is identified as describing a male. Determinatives are not believed to have been pronounced. Thus, if "nin" of Ninurta is a determinative, the correct reading would be "Urta." This is the reading Luckenbill used in his Ancient Records of Assyria and Babylonia. The problem is that Ninurta was indisputably male-- one of the most "macho" of Mesopotamian deities. He was a hunter and a warrior. And in Akkadian, where verbs have gender, it is even more clear that Ninurta was male; to have his name begin ...
206. Maturation of Newborn Female Rats Under Elevated Levels of Carbon Dioxide [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History IV:2 (July 1982) Home¦ Issue Contents Maturation of Newborn Female Rats Under Elevated Levels of Carbon Dioxide Donald W. Patten A hypothesis was presented in Catastrophism and Ancient History (Vol. II, Part 1, August 1979) that in ancient times, c. 2500 B.C., the atmosphere of earth 15 times as much carbon dioxide (CO 2) as does the present atmosphere. The ancient concentration may have been around 5000 parts per million (ppM) in contrast to the contemporary 350 ppM and the late 19th century estimate of 290 ppM 1 The historical decline of atmospheric CO is illustrated in Figure 1. The cause of the sudden decline was an abrupt development of cold high-latitude oceans. Cold water dissolves CO 2 out of the atmosphere far more readily than warm water. The reason for the sudden drop in temperatures of high-latitude oceans is believed to be a sudden ice dump of juvenile, celestial ice in the magnetic polar regions, and its subsequent melting and runoff. This is also the core ...
207. Did the Amazons Exist After All? [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon V:1 (Nov 1997) Home¦ Issue Contents News Flash Did the Amazons Exist After All? Tania ta Maria Ancient female warriors, known as Amazons, litter Greek myth and legend. In modern times, they have been more or less relegated to the fertile imagination of the ancient Greeks. Herodotus, the Greek historian of antiquity, had however vouched for their existence. On his return from his travels north of the Black Sea, he told of these fierce female warriors, armed with swords and bows and arrows, roaming the steppes of what today is southern Russia. Together with their mention elsewhere in Greek literature, scholars have dismissed Herodotus' accounts as unbelievable. Recent archaeological discoveries in the area, however, seem to suggest that, after all, the Amazons did in fact exist. The American archaeologist Jeannine Davis-Kimball has been working with Russian counterparts near the town of Pokrovka in Kazakhstan. There, Davis-Kimball has excavated 63 graves, dating from 600 to 400 B.C., which contained the remains of females only. The ...
208. Punctuated Darwinism? [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... all, each parent passes only half of its genes to each offspring. In practice, the rate of loss of genes over a given time depends on the interval between generations." From the point of view of the breeding programme this means that zoos require to hold a far larger population of fast breeding animals, such as small rodents, than large slow breeding mammals such as rhinoceros. It also means that zoos must breed from animals which neo-Darwinism would decree as inferior; many species of large mammal are polygamous with one stud male doing most of the breeding because it has proved itself 'superior'. To avoid the loss of genetic variation carried by the 'inferior' males which, in the wild, would not have had the chance to breed, conservation breeders must use all males equally. Tudge writes a very telling indictment of natural selection: "Sometimes a dominant male has no very desirable qualities except those of being dominant. Indeed, there are instances, both in cheetahs and gorillas, when the dominant male turned out to be sterile." But ...
209. The Oedipus Legend and the Amarna Period [Kronos $]
... by assuming a confusion with that image at Luxor.) Amenhotep II boasts repeatedly of having killed prisoners with his own hands; and the same can be inferred for Thutmosis IV from the fact that, on one occasion,(7) his wife is depicted as handing him the weapon in the traditional scene of clubbing enemies, which at other periods of Egyptian history may have been purely symbolical. These human sacrifices were made in honor of Amen, whose image the Sphinx of Luxor was. The peculiar and rare emblem of the female sphinx (sphinge) with broken wings, best known from the "Carnarvon Plaque",(8) appears first under Amenhotep III. It expresses pictorially the idea of "tamer of the (female) sphinx", whatever this may have meant, and regardless of whether the sphinge symbolized conquered Syria or Queen Tiy.(9) In my opinion it probably did both, and Davies was right when he stated: "On the gem of Amenhotep III, the sphinx may be taken to represent the homage of the ...
