32. A General Introduction to Amazon Mythology in the Greco-Roman World [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon IV:2 (Aug 1995) Home¦ Issue Contents A General Introduction to Amazon Mythology in the Greco-Roman World Tammy Jo Eckhart INTRODUCTION In dictionaries and encyclopedias, Amazons are described as a race of mythological female warriors. (1) It is amazing that, even in the academic fields of Classics, Classical Studies, and Ancient History, this seems to be the extent of general knowledge concerning the Amazon mythology of the Greco-Roman World. This is not to say that dissertations on the subject are unavailable. ( ... traditional Greco-Roman female role. When males are not described as part of the nation, the Amazons are reported to have mated with neighboring people, either by mutual agreement or with captured enemy soldiers. If the mating was for the mutual benefit of both nations, the male offspring were returned to the other nation while the Amazons kept the females. When males are described as part of the Amazon nation their lots vary a great deal. They may be citizens who can, and do, serve in the military but to whom the ...
33. Plants Of The Apes [Science Frontiers Website]
... divides howler monkey females into three groups. In the first are the high-ranking females that predominantly produce male offspring. This 'male-offspring' strategy favors these females because the males they produce tend to become dominant adults that will pass on more of the females' genes than would female offspring, who are limited in the number of infants they can engender in comparison to the males. Similar optimization strategies, according to Glander, induce middleranking females to produce mainly female progeny, and low-ranking females to birth almost all males. These howler monkeys seem ... judicious consumption of certain plants. Going even farther, K. Glander, Duke University, suggests that howler monkeys control the sex of their offspring through their diets. Glander divides howler monkey females into three groups. In the first are the high-ranking females that predominantly produce male offspring. This 'male-offspring' strategy favors these females because the males they produce tend to become dominant adults that will pass on more of the females' genes than would female offspring, who are limited in the number of infants they can engender in comparison to the ...

35. Great Balls Of Snakes [Science Frontiers Website]
... in such enormous numbers to keep warm, for sexually immature garter snakes commonly hibernate alone. Big concentrations of sexually mature garter snakes seem to be part of the reproduction strategy of the species. In the big aggregations, males usually outnumber females by 50-1. As each female emerges in the spring, she is immediately mobbed by dozens of males. So-called "mating balls" of up to 100 males and a single female are formed. Naturalists commonly explain the wintering concentrations and mating balls as clever schemes evolved to maximize reproduction with minimum ... Evolutionists tend to "explain" facts in a circular fashion; that is, only the most efficient reproducers (or "fittest") survive, therefore those that survive must be the best reproducers. While the garter snake strategy has some advantages in terms of getting male and female together, things may have gone too far. For example, one communal den was flooded, killing 10,000 snakes. Predators have a field day when emergence occurs. One would think that dispersed hibernating snakes, with 1:1 male-to-female ratio ...
36. The Mixtec Tree of Origin [Aeon Journal $]
... from the cleft in the top of the tree at Apoala. Apoala is said to be the legendary place of origin of the Mixtec gods and nobility. Although Furst's interpretation is somewhat conventional, it does help in explaining some of the image's elements. The naked first female, referred to earlier, is not visible in other renditions of the image because, for whatever reason, those who usually reproduce the image tend to leave her out. [18 This Mixtec "Eve" is plainly visible in the original, where she is ... standing alone above and to the left of the male (who wears red body paint). Oddly, this first female and her male counterpart are unnamed, but another 49 named figures are distinctly shown in accompanying images. These were apparently all generated from the same tree. The two major male figures on either side of the tree are, in the colored original, shown to be wearing grey body paint and are identified as 7 Rain, on the right, and 7 Eagle on the left, with their names written above ...
37. The Amarna Age - an Introduction [SIS Internet Digest $]
... , has many unusual features. In overall design it is very like that of Tutankhamun, and the possibility exists of other tombs of this era in the same part of the valley. The funeral mask and various other items appear to have been first fashioned for a female, but then reused for a male at a later date. The woman in question might be Kiya, the second wife of Akhenaten (after Nefertiti). She appears to have been of Hittite origin, and was originally intended to marry Amenhotep 3. Some ... Tiye, is also depicted with a daughter in this era. Who is the father? This again returns to the coregency issue- if there was a reasonably long coregency it could be Amenhotep 3, but if not perhaps Akhenaten, in his desperation to have a male heir, was the father himself. Had Akhenaten become desperate to have a male heir and so was attempting this with all women with a claim to royalty? The tomb known as KV55 in the Valley of the Kings, dated to the Amarna period, has ...

... under Mom's Skin for Decades," Science News, 149:85, 1996) Fatherless blood. In Britain, a male child has been found with normal skin, with each cell carrying the expected X and Y chromosomes, but "his" blood is all female. Its cells contain the mother's two X chromosomes with no paternal contribution. What happened? One theory is that the mother's unfertilized egg spontaneously divided. Then, fertilization occurred, but it was only partial. The sperm got to just one of the two or ... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 105: May-Jun 1996 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Mixed-up people Mother-child chimeras. Investigators have discovered cells carrying male DNA among a mother's blood cells 27 years after the birth a male child. Evidently, descendents of fetal cells escape during pregnancy and persist in the mother for years after birth. The mother thus becomes a blend of herself and her child (or, possibly, children)- a kind of chimera. The question is: ...

... long period religious cults were all centred on a goddess, an earth mother, symbol of fertility and cycles of birth, growth, death and rebirth. Rebirth, in the form of puberty ceremonies and burial rituals were strongly associated with symbols which appear to represent the female womb or vulva. When farming spread from Anatolia across Europe it brought its own adaptation of these beliefs. With the first settled farmers (around 4000 BC in western Europe) came the first megalithic tombs, often built with a forecourt and with an increasing orientation ... belief in Newton's perfectly ordered Universe, and wondered how it would come to terms with recent evidence that catastrophes have occurred. Irving Wolfe remarked that this anticipated his conference paper! Dr Meaden noted that all the religions Irving Wolfe had been talking about were masculine religions with male gods paramount. Could the change from the earlier goddess religions he was considering have been caused by catastrophe? On his reckoning this was around 10,000 BC. Irving Wolfe agreed that all the evidence was that the world had been very different during the ascendency ...

... above item) and thereby received a few months' bonus in longevity, you might compensate for the loss by moving to sunny Sardinia in the Mediterranean. Nowhere else on the planet does a larger proportion of the male population live to the century mark. Strangely, female longevity is unaffected by whatever it is that produces the male Methuselahs. We have, therefore, two questions to answer: (1) Why do so many males reach the 100-year mark; and (2) Why are Sardinia's women short-changed? No one has ...
