211. For Some, Sex = Death [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 82: Jul-Aug 1992 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects For some, sex= death It has long been known that the males of some species of marsupial mice mate in their first year and then die off completely, leaving the perpetuation of their species to their male progeny. Females of these species usually survive to breed a second and even third year. The poor males, however, succumb due to "elevated levels of free corticosteroids in the blood and associated disease such as hemorrhagic ulceration of the gastric mucosa, anemia, and parasite infestation." In short, they seem programmed to die after mating, like the male octopus. And one wonders why evolution has wrought this mass die-off. In their studies of marsupial mice, C.R. Dickman and R.W. Braithwaite have extended the phenomenon to two new genera: Dasyurus and Parantechinus. They have also found that the phenomenon is a bit more complex. First, in P. apicalis, the male die-off occurs in ...
212. Rethinking Hatshepsut [SIS C&C Review $]
... an Exodus in the 15th century, which includes the XVIII Dynasty, but adopted the attitude that 'all the evidence is not in yet'. However, rather than support this view, recent discoveries have made it less consistent with the evidence. The Pharaoh of the Exodus When the husband of Hatshepsut, Thutmose II, died his son Thutmose III was crowned as the next Pharaoh but, because he was only a child, Hatshepsut assumed the role of co-regent. She liked the job and subsequently proclaimed herself king, using all the male pronouns and titles and ruling for 22 years- but Thutmose III was still the heir apparent. There was no place for Moses as future Pharaoh, so Horn had to conclude that Moses was not rescued from the Nile to be the future Pharaoh but only to assume some prominent role in the court. Thutmose III ultimately succeeded to the throne and was followed by his son Amenhotep II, who reigned from 1450 to 1425BC. However this means the mummy of the Pharaoh of the Exodus is in the Cairo Museum, when it ...
213. Focus [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... reproducibility of that of Steele and Gorczynski. The two experiments differed only in minor ways, but in the Brent et al. experiment the immune status was given a double check. Their results were negative, that is, they failed to show that immune tolerance could be passed on to future generations in any statistically significant measure. The second paper, by A. McLaren et al. (p. 513-4) tested the idea that Steele& Gorczynski may have produced chimaeras by repeated injections of bone marrow and spleen cells into their male rats, and that their results might have been the result of chimaerism. This too was a negative result. Suddenly, the "Lamarckian" results were not reproducible, and reproducibility is a "sine qua non" of scientific work. Soon after these papers appeared in NATURE, a heated debate was in progress between Steele and his critics. This was reported in NEW SCIENTIST 23/4/81, p. 204, as "Unbowed Steele says critics prove him right", the outshot of which was that Steele ...
214. Oedipus and Akhnaton [Pensee]
... or that, Velikovsky has succeeded in identifying Oedipus as the Greek reflex of the historical Akhnaton. The differences between the Egyptian and Greek versions are due to two factors. First, the Egyptian sources are historical records and archeological finds, whereas the Greek accounts are legendary memories recast in literary form. Second, no cultural elements are ever transmitted from one people to another without transformation, and the Egyptian Akhnaton transformed into the Greek Oedipus is no exception. In addition to the link between the two Thebes, Velikovsky calls attention to the female Sphinx, whose riddle Oedipus solved. The varieties of sphinxes are virtually infinite, but Velikovsky makes a good case for its specifically Egyptian origin in the Oedipus legend. Velikovsky shows that the female sphinx makes its first appearance in Egypt of the Amarna Age, specifically (with breasts) to personify Tiy, the mother of Akhnaton. The name "Oedipus" means "he of the swollen feet" in Greek. The revolution crystallized by Akhnaton embraced what we would call realism in art. Instead of idealizing the portrayals of the ...

... or son) of the father,” or equivalent of Ahab. The identification of Rib Addi with Ahab was offered and substantiated by us in Ages in Chaos, Vol. I, by a very extensive and detailed analysis. More than sixty letters of this king of Sumura (Shemer or Shomron-Samaria) were preserved in the archive of el-Amarna to Akhetaten the capital of Akhnaten. He usually opened his letter with this blessing: “May Belith of Gubla...” In Ages in Chaos we identified the deity Belith with the female consort of the god Belus, of which Josephus Flavius wrote that it was brought to Israel from Phoenicia by Jezebel, the chief wife of Ethbaal. (2) We have also identified Gubla with the name of Jezreel until Jezebel ’ s death. From the Scriptures we known of the great and passionate struggle which went on in the days of Ahab in Palestine. At a time when the southern kingdom, that of Judah, the chief diety was Yahwe, in the Northern Kingdom, that of Israel, the chief deity ...
216. The Problem Of The Precocious Parr [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 30: Nov-Dec 1983 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects The Problem Of The Precocious Parr A startling shift in the breeding pat-terns of the Atlantic salmon is taking place in the rivers of North America and Europe. Male parr (parr are young sal-mon that have not yet been to sea) are becoming sexually precocious in large numbers. The small males have up to 20% of their body weight allocated to testes and, in consequence, seem to be bulging from full meals. Actually, they are ready to dart in under mature spawning salmon and fertilize some of the newly laid eggs. Experiments show that the parr are rather successful in their furtive endeavors. The question at hand is why the parr are developing precociously when there are sufficient mature male salmon around to do the job. (Montgomery, W. Linn; "Parr Excellence," Natural History, 92:59, June 1983.) From Science Frontiers #30, NOV-DEC 1983.© 1983-2000 William ...
217. Recent Developments in Near Eastern Archaeology [SIS C&C Review $]
... who are most likely the Padi and Ikausu, kings of Ekron, mentioned in the 7th century BC annals of Esarhaddon and Assurbanipal respectively [e.g. Luckenbill Ancient Records II pp. 142-3, 340; Pritchard ANET pp. 287-8, 294. The authors offer a compromise pronounciation for Achish/Ikausu as 'Akhayus' which suggests the meaning 'Achaean', i.e. 'the Greek' (p. 11). The word ptgyh is stated to be 'surely the name of a goddess of non-Semitic origin, perhaps some unknown Philistine or Indo-European female deity' (p. 11). Dr Rupert Chapman has made the interesting suggestion that the name is Greek and means 'Lady Gaia', i.e. the Greek earth goddess, thus perhaps relating back to the Philistines' early links with the Aegean. Alternatively it might be suspected that the yh ending was in some way related to Yahweh, but the text uses feminine constructions. There are some crude Iron Age inscriptions from the Negev site of Kuntillet Ajrud which are generally interpreted as associating Yahweh with a female deity; this ...
218. Leonardo da Vinci: Rocks, Fossils, and Time [Kronos $]
... control of the Medici family. He was apprenticed to the well-known Florentine painter and sculptor Andrea del Verrocchio. During his six-year apprenticeship in the artist's workshop, Leonardo learned the fundamentals and skills of his technological knowledge and developed a passion for mathematics. For the most part, Leonardo da Vinci was a self-taught and sensitive individual. Yet, there is a distant and secret air in his unique and complex character. Although a handsome and strong man, he ignored the fair sex throughout his life (however, he did favour his two male servants Salai and Melzi). Leonardo's personal preference for the male gender provided Sigmund Freud with material for his unscientific and only study of paleopsychosexuality. The makeup of Leonardo's nature can never be more than dimly and incompletely conceived. To some degree, Leonardo da Vinci was influenced by seven major thinkers: Aristotle, Archimedes, Vitruvius, Pliny, Ptolemy, Avicenna, and Cusa. His own experiences, studies, and speculations were shackled by two prejudices: Platonism and Galenism. Nevertheless, he took historical changes seriously and even discovered ...
219. The MacCecht and Cuchulainn [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... riding a big pale white horse. 6. NJ Higham, The English Conquest, Manchester University Press, 1994, p. 53 Heavenly Horses The defeat of pharaoh at Yam Suph was associated with heavenly horses. Yahweh appeared riding on a horse according to Habakkuk 3:15: 'you trod the sea with your horses....'. A parallel may exist between the crash and roll of foaming waves and the flowing mane and tail of galloping horses. In Latin mare= the sea but in English mare =a female horse [1, thus the link with Marian riding a horse on May Eve (and Lady Godiva)and the idea of night-mare being a comet of the night such as the MacCecht. In the Song of Songs the female (goddess) is not just black and beautiful but she is also described as a mare. An Islamic source records Al Borak, a milk white steed (white light) of folklore, each of whose strides were equal to the furthest range of human vision. In Britain, horses have been ...
220. Listening With The Feet [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 38: Mar-Apr 1985 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Listening With The Feet "Male white-lipped frogs exhibit conspicuous behavioral responses to calling conspecific males that are nearby but out of view. Since the calls often are accompanied by strong seismic signals (thumps), and since the male white-lipped frog exhibits the most acute sensitivity to seismic stimuli yet observed in any animal, these animals may use seismic signals as well as auditory signals for intraspecific communication." (Lewis, Edwin R., and Narins, Peter M.; "Do Frogs Communicate with Seismic Signals?" Science, 227:187, 1985.) Comment. Rabbits often thump the ground to communicate, but their thumps are thought to be sound generators rather than vibration generators. From Science Frontiers #38, MAR-APR 1985.© 1985-2000 William R.
