41. The Two Major Censuses in the Book of Numbers [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... Examples of Logistics 1. The Wells at Elim. Let us assume that the Hebrews were about 30 percent men, 35percent infants, children and teenagers, and 40 percent women. (There had been male infanticide in Egypt, which must have made the male/female ratio disproportionate.) If the 603,550 persons recorded in the census of Numbers 1 is accurate, then the number of Hebrews leaving Egypt can be estimated. 603,550 is 30 percent of 2,011,833, which might have been the ... , respectively. Table I lists the twelve tribes not in textual order but rather in alphabetical sequence; this is done tor analytical purposes. Several observations need to be made about these two ancient censuses regarding their form and content: Manasseh is the tribe with the smallest male population in the first census. Circumstances leading to this will be discussed at some length later in this paper. Women and males under 20 years of age were excluded, inasmuch as these were counts for military purposes. The decrease in numbers of fighting men was ...
42. Child of Saturn (Part III) [Kronos $]
... a proper name signifies the Goddess in much the same way we of the Western World mean the Deity when we use the word "God". Devi is also popularly known as Mahadevi, or "Great Goddess", thus differentiating her from the rest of her female cohorts. Personally, I prefer that designation and as such shall I henceforth refer to her. As Isenberg correctly observed, her actual names "are legion".(3) Isenberg has also pointed out that Indologists have translated the word "devi" to ... ."(10) O'Flaherty is of the opinion that the Mahadevi is a composite figure who owes her origin to much earlier female divinities: "Her assimilation into the Hindu pantheon... took place... in two distinct phases: first the Indo-Aryan male gods were given wives, and then... these shadowy female figures merged into the Great Goddess."(11) Also:"... female divinities had served as the objects or instruments of divine struggles from the earliest times... ...

... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 52: Jul-Aug 1987 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Aggressive Mimicry Field studies have revealed that bolas spiders can mimic the odor of female moths, thus attracting for consumption the male moths. More specifically, the hunting adult female spider, Mastophora cornigera, releases volatile substances containing three moth sex pheromone compounds. (Stowe, Mark K., et al; "Chemical Mimicry: Bolas Spiders Emit Components of Moth Prey Species Sex Pheromones," ... , 236:964, 1987.) Comment. As in many other cases of mimicry, one wonders how the spider's capability developed by chance and in small steps. From Science Frontiers #52, JUL-AUG 1987.© 1987-2000 William R.

44. Man-killer Lightning [Science Frontiers Website]
... a search of death records show that men are far more often killed by lightning than women. P.E. Brown checked the figures for England and Wales for the years 1974-1989, when 56 people were listed as killed by lightning. Of these 48 were male, 8 female. Brown supposes that the preponderance of male deaths is due to males being more likely to be outside in exposed areas.

On the male, the headdress, the beard, and the cartouche are all typically Egyptian in style. The male is thought to represent Osiris, the female Isis.

46. A FIRE NOT BLOWN: CHAPTER 06: ARIADNE [Quantavolution Website]
... ' is a name of Dionysus. In the above examples the reversal of rp to vr or to br is noteworthy. The Greek damart- is a wife or maiden. It is likely that Britomartis is Veredamartis, wine-wife or wine-maiden, and that she is a female version of Dionysus. Ancient deities were often grouped in pairs, male and female, and brother-sister incest occurred, as with Zeus and Hera. Dionysus and Ariadne are represented together under a vine. A statuette of the Cretan goddess holding snakes or bows has her ... a flounced dress. She looks almost like a telescopic column or caryatid. The effect is like that of the djed column or tree in Egyptian art, as seen at Dendera and elsewhere. The significance of the column is electrical. Temple columns led up to the sky, where deities were shown high up on the temple. The Parthenon frieze may be an example, especially if it is the scene of the arrival in Olympus of the soldiers who fell at Marathon. The column of light mentioned by Plato towards the end of ...

One might be tempted to dismiss these images as crude representations of human beings, but there ... good reasons to suspect that something else may have been behind the production of these objects. After all, Mycenaean art is not normally known for its crudeness and the artists would probably have been able enough to produce more naturalistic objects. A comparative study of the statues in case, some of which are portrayed above, uncovers a number of recurrent features. The figurines all have a cylindrical base. Their torsoes are invariably decorated with vertical stripes and come in three types. Due to the resemblance of these types to some letters of ...

... circle resting upon crossarms and vertical stroke, thus: By virtue of intensive research, Rix had established that the ankh was not only a widespread symbol, a religious symbol of wide dedication, but also a manifestation of androgyny, that is, a representation of the female vulva and the male phallus, and furthermore was securely identified with a cometary form, especially Venus, with ominous indications that the comet being discussed was a head that had dropped its tail, the victim of this accident being not only the two-sexed god concerned, ... also the Earth on which the tail in the form of Phaeton, Typhon, Lucifer and Pallas descended with disastrous consequences. Lowery, the Editor, partly out of deviltry and partly out of pedantry, pulled Rix up sharply. Citing dictionaries of hieroglyphic Egyptian, he could say that "the evidence of Egyptian script makes it unambiguously clear that when an Egyptian scribe drew an 'ankh' he, at least, was in no doubt that he was drawing a sandal-strap (somewhat stylized)" [1. This constraint upon the word ...
50. Genes vs. memes [Science Frontiers Website]
... changes (meme "mutation") plus natural selection. The meme approach is holistic rather than reductionist and is appealing because it allows us some control over our destiny. There are several phenomena in which some scientists profess to see memes overpowering the genes: Generations of female infanticide have led to more male births than female births. In dairy-farming societies, 90% of the population has the enzyme lactase that allows individuals to digest cows' milk. In other societies, 80% become ill when drinking cows' milk. A variety ... cultural pressures have raised the percentage of lefthanders in North America to 12% compared with just 2% a century ago. In Taiwan, where cultural pressures are quite different, only 1% of the populace is left-handed. In the end, of course, neither genes nor memes are in total control. Both genes and societies can be selfish! (Spinney, Laura; "The Unselfish Gene," New Scientist, p. 28, October 25, 1997.) Comment. Surely, genes and memes are not all ...
