91. Velikovsky and the Problem of Planetary Identification [Journals] [Aeon]
... of the Greek pantheon, was in all likelihood a foreign import from Asia Minor. (18) The researcher pursuing the celestial origins of Apollo, accordingly, would profit little from the various planet-lists stemming from Hellenistic times, which identify that god with either the sun or Mercury; rather the crucial clues derive from an analysis of the god's aboriginal cults in Asia Minor and on the outlying islands of Cyprus and Crete. At these sites Apollo's original nature shines through loud and clear. As a consequence of the practice of importing foreign cults, the Greek pantheon (like most ancient pantheons) became "contaminated" by foreign gods bearing the same archetypal features as local gods. Thus ...
... especially that of the classical' period) in public and private collections; to undertake careful and systematic digging, chiefly down to the level of the Tiahuanaco of the classic' period; to compile an atlas of all ornamental (possibly ideographic) devices on sculptures, pottery, metal implements, etc. ; to gather myths and folklore among aboriginal tribes of the Tiahuanaco region; and to publish all results of the work undertaken. The result of this work of exploration would also help the theory advanced in this book to be accepted or rejected. At any rate, it would bring forth quantities of exceedingly valuable material about that most unique and hitherto so sadly neglected culture of Tiahuanaco ...
93. The Rise and Fall of Man (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... , nothing but their wretched lives. The deluge drove them into the poor lands; and in these districts there ensued no perpetual spring. They entered into the new age destitute of tools, helpless and hopeless. Typical examples are the Eskimos, many North Siberian tribes, and, in the south, the Patagonians, the Bushmen, the aborigines of Australia, and, probably, many negro tribes. The fringe-dwellers experienced the Great Flood most of all. But the inhabitants of subtropical refuges may have suffered terribly from the waters of the girdle-tide ebbing off from the tropics and surging back again from the poles. Some of these tribes may have been overwhelmed entirely and washed out of ...
94. Sinking and Rising Lands [Books] [de Grazia books]
... . Some legends have been confirmed by geology; many might be confirmed; most are not, because they are vague or misleading. It would be well to examine closely the myths that have proved quite accurate to see in what mythical form they found expression and then to proceed systematically to the translation of similar myths around the world. The aboriginal Australians who live around MacDonnell Bay say that an angry witch once stirred up the waters and flooded the beautiful land to make the Bay. Geologists confirm that the land was high in the ice ages and recently sank to form the Bay. The image of the witch should not be discounted; Velikovsky has described how European and Chinese alike ...

... of seismic activity and associated electrical effects in the area during the preceding few years, leading to the conclusion that the cause may have been tectonic. Could this also explain mysterious holes in North America and Norway, or even Tunguska? Impact or endogenous, there are also 13 craters in Australia apparently formed about 5000 years ago and witnessed by aboriginals who mention fire and devil rock in their myth. Tunguska happened in June, a month that also saw an unusual meteor storm on the Moon in 1975 and an account of what appeared to be a major impact on the Moon in 1178. It is suggested that these events are linked to comet Encke and the related Taurid complex. ...
96. Sothis and the Morning Star in the Pyramid Texts [Journals] [Aeon]
... Sirius as acting as a guide to the soul during its ascent to heaven. More than one culture, however, ascribed just such a role to the planet Venus. On the stele of Albano, for instance, the star of Venus is depicted as accompanying the soul of a child during its ascent to heaven. (50) Australian aborigines likewise preserve memory of Venus' role as escort of the departing soul: "When a person dies, his/her spirit is believed to be conducted by the star [Venus] to Bralgu [the Australian netherworld], its last resting place." (51) Similar conceptions are apparent in early Sumerian hymns involving Inanna, ...

... appeals for a study to be made of Earth in Upheaval "similar to Forrest's" of Worlds in Collision. New Astronomy: West = South!source: Newcastle Morning Herald (NSW) 28.10.82, p. 8 When J. E. Aitchison wrote to Professor Colin Keay of Newcastle University for an explanation of an aboriginal myth relating to the Pleiades, the result was a short article in the local newspaper. Its title was: "Constellation may be clue to ice-age puzzle" and in it Colin Keay tried to relate the movements of the constellation to the climate of Australia, but with little success: "The aboriginal story relates that the Pleiades went ...

... Note 22. Gaea, the `bearer', or `sustainer', goddess of the Earth, one of the very oldest of deities. She had no `parents', but came into existence by herself, out of Chaos. The autochthons were her `children': they were people who survived the capture cataclysm in their aboriginal haunts. Note 23. Hephaestus, the `flaming one', one of the oldest gods, generally regarded as a son of Zeus and Hera. Originally probably not so much the `god of fire' as the `god of volcanic and seismic activity'. This interpretation is upheld by the fact that his `smithy' ...

... hell for another fiddler". Another fiddler appeared and played until dawn, when he revealed himself as the Devil and turned the assembled throng to stone. No one believes that story any longer. Except, of course, on midsummer's eve. [Story submitted by Walter Radtke]- News of interest to catastrophists: Albert Namatjira, an aboriginal watercolourist of the 40's and 50's. . .was an Arunda man from Hermannsberg in Central Australia. He trained under an European artist, Rex Batterbee, and created some beautiful watercolour landscape images of his country.
