171. Conclusion (Carl Sagan & Immanuel Velikovsky) [Books]
... 17 Patrick Moore in Fireside Astronomy, (NY 1992), p. 193, tells us, "support for. . . [Napier and Clube's] theories is said to come from records left by old civilizations-the Romans, Greeks, Mayas, Incas, Chinese, Babylonians, and so on, even the New Zealand Maoris and the aborigines of Australia." When astronomers tell us that the study of ancient writings may demonstrate that there have been major collisions between the Earth and a comet in the last 3,500 years, they are neither "charlatans" nor do they practice "crank science." The nub of the issue comes down to this; it is ...
172. Bob Forrest and Venus As A Comet In World Mythology [Books]
... cited for the comet Venus is a global theme, and the one credible explanation of the myth is that Venus did look like a comet and that it did participate in literally earthshaking events not all that long ago. One only has to follow the evidence to determine that this is so. VENUS IN MESOPOTAMIAN TRADITION It is remarkable enough that aboriginal peoples of Mesoamerica affixed to Venus the words and symbols for "comet," but what would be our conclusion if we find the same anomaly in the Old World? The ancient cultures of Mesopotamia offer a good source of comparison with those of Mesoamerica, it being well-known that the inhabitants of the Fertile Crescent worshipped the planet Venus with ...
173. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... (13,000 years) and other tools associated with charcoal have been radiocarbon dated to 18,000 to 19,000 years. 50 skulls have been found in Brazil and Columbia which predate the supposed mongoloid invasion of the Americas via the Bering land bridge - and they were anything except mongoloid. They appear to be similar to modern Aborigines and Africans and it is suggested that people from Africa made their way across the Pacific by island hopping in boats, eventually populating the Americas and Australia. There is a painting of an ocean-going boat in western Australia dated at 20,000 years. The earliest Americans were then nearly wiped out by the advancing mongoloids and only survived as ...
174. Martian Meteorites in Ancient Myth and Modern Science [Journals] [Aeon]
... to earth." (68) Meteors, in accordance with this belief, were identified with thunderstones throughout the ancient world. (69) G. Wainright, surveying the conceptions of the ancient Egyptians, concluded that: "In religion the meteorite and the thunderbolt are the same thing." (70) Virtually identical beliefs prevailed in aboriginal Mesoamerica. (71) If the original reference for Indra's heaven-hurled bolt was to a meteor-like object, both descriptions of the vajra- rock and metallic rock- would be equally appropriate, since meteorites can be either stony or composed of iron. The planet Mars, moreover, was regarded as the iron-planet par excellence by ancient skywatchers and ...
175. Part III: The Legends [Ragnarok] [Books]
... mass of fragmentary truth and fiction, not open to rationalistic criticism; a partition wall of allegories, built of dead facts cemented with wild fancies; it looms ever between the immeasurable and the measurable past." But he adds: "Never was there a time in the history of philosophy when the character, customs, and beliefs of aboriginal man, and everything appertaining to him, were held in such high esteem by scholars as at present." "It is now a recognized principle of philosophy that no religious belief, however crude, nor any historical tradition, however absurd, can be held by the majority of a people for any considerable time as true, without ...
176. The Demands of the Saturnian Configuration Theory [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , ancient man would not have realised that it contained water. When the polar column was severed, however, the water contained within it would have been released and from this ancient man should have deduced that the column did contain a reservoir of water. Does the mytho-historical record meet this demand? We have already seen that among the Australian Aborigines the great python is the most impressive representative of the polar column. It is therefore significant that this python is not only believed to tower up to the level of the clouds but that he also brings about rain and flood' . The Efe pygmies of the Ituri forest tell of a deluge of water which gushed forth ...
177. Science Frontiers 1977-1978 [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... talk, although it does utter a piercing whistle. A meat-eater, the Chuchunaa often steals food from settlements. Observers say that the creature has a protruding brow, long matted hair, a full beard, and walks with its hands hanging below its knees. Soviet scientists speculate that the Chuchunaa represents the last surviving remnant of the Siberian paleoasiatic aborigines that retreated to the upper reaches of the Yana and Incligirka rivers. The last reliable sightings were in the 1950s, and this animal may now be extinct. [It should be noted that this item from Nature is written with the same tongue-in-cheek tone reserved for the Loch Ness Monster and UFOs. Ed.] (Anonymous; Nature ...
178. Thoth Vol II, No. 12: July 31, 1998 [Journals] [Thoth]
... : Agreed. ERIC: Are there certain continents whose traditions have been neglected up to now and that still need such analytical work? DWARDU: In MY case - yes. Perhaps not quite NEGLECTED, and perhaps not necessarily CONTINENTS, but definitely myths from certain geographical areas not yet given serious attention. Again, in MY case, Australian aboriginal material comes immediately to mind; South America; huge areas in Africa; and elsewhere. ERIC: What parts of the Saturn theory are well worked out and what parts still need more work and confirmation from independent mythological sources? DWARDU: In MY opinion, what still needs to be worked out is the number and characteristics of the ...

I think the (inaud.) -dating very slow growing desert plants. They believe that the date is about 5000 years ago - the formation of the craters. The Aboriginal name for this area is the "Place Where the Sun Walked on the Earth" - they must have seen it! Editor: Yes. It seems much more reasonable to believe that peoples experienced these things. What we're lacking is general acceptance of the mechanism. But what the actual occurrence of globally effective catastrophes would have done to ...
180. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... p. 11, 9.3 .02, p. 15 Drugs of one sort or another seem to have been used by all cultures from ancient times. It is suggested that our ancestors sought out plants with alkaloids because these could have helped them survive. Stimulants could help people having to endure harsh conditions, just as the Australian Aboriginals use them to be able to endure desert travel without food and Andeans to help them work at high altitude. Betel nut was used at least 13,000 years ago in Timor and coca at least 5,000 years ago in Ecuador. Some drugs do have real nutritional value as well which could have been vital in marginal habitats ...
