21. Psychology and Ancient Astronomical Discovery [Journals] [Kronos]
... groups that did not. Anthropology links measurement of time by astronomical cycles with mastery of controlled agriculture and the rise of full civilisation. Tied to religion, ancient concerns with astronomy have remained an integral part of diverse human cultures to the present. North American lndians still preserve traditions believed to be remnants of the ancient Mesoamerican astronomical systems. Tasmanian aboriginals are said to exercise astronomic traditions possibly acquired in remote prehistory. Despite the various implications for prehistoric developments in astronomy, there has been little scientific interest in the question until recently. New discoveries in archeology have made it clear that prehistoric cultures were much more complex than formerly believed. One researcher, Alexander Marshack, has conducted an exhaustive ...
22. Pot Pourri [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Asia continues towards the Pacific Islands'. However, the question is whether this pattern reached the Americas and Sykes (see above) would seem to suggest not; the Polynesians visited but left no genetic imprint on that continent. The transcript of the programme proposes not just trans-Pacific links but, specifically, contact and occupation by ancestors of Australian Aborigines [4 ]. However, neither Sykes nor Oppenheimer [5 ] suggests that the Australians had any genetic influence on the Americas. Furthermore, Sykes states that all four mcDNA clans in the Americas have close genetic links to those in N.E . Asia and Oppenheimer shows [6 ] that, of all the Pacific clusters, ...
23. Years Of Ten Months, Part 2 Mars Ch.8 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... Each year, however, a period of two or three months is not brought into the computation at all, and is omitted in time reckoning.13 The Chams of Indo-China have a calendar of only ten months to the year.14 The natives in some islands of the Indian Ocean also observe ten months to the year.15 The aborigines of New Zealand do not count two months in the year. "These two months are not in the calendar: they do not reckon them; nor are they in any way accounted for."16 "Among the Yoruba of South Nigeria the three months- February, March, April- are generally given no specific name. ...
24. Genes, Peoples, and Languages by Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza (Book Review). C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the Bay of Bengal. Their genes may survive among the peoples of New Guinea and Australia but there is evidence, too, of a very early spread by people of a different and much larger physique, who may survive as the Ainu in Japan, the indigenous people that not long ago inhabited Taiwan and, especially, as the Australian Aborigines. There is also evidence that these people reached the Americas long before the Mongoloids. Hence, a single migration out of Africa is too simplistic. An Australian programme shown on BBC TV a few years ago actually suggested the Aborigines had physical traits in common with Late Homo Erectus remains found in Java and New Guinea, long predating the ...
25. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... all man's experience and history as being generated from outside. - (Rev.) Nicholas J. G. Sykes, Cayman Islands, B. W. I. Child of Saturn Dear Sir, Without wishing to take sides in the debate of whether Venus was born of Jupiter or Saturn, I feel obliged to forward these curious Australian Aboriginal comments on Jupiter and Venus which are taken from the book Australian Dreaming published in 1980 under the auspices of the Aboriginal Arts Board. The comments are offered for whatever good they can do in unravelling the mystery of the past: 1. "Jupiter was once a man who had a head and no body." 2. " ...
26. The Milky Way [Journals] [Aeon]
... ." (6 ) In Africa more than one tribe referred to the Milky Way as yaer dori, "the river of the sky." (7 ) The ancient Egyptians called it the "Winding Waterway." (8 ) To the Akkadians, apparently, it was Hid tsirra, "River-of-the-Snake." (9 ) The aboriginal peoples of Australia likewise knew the band of heaven as a great river, (10) as did the nomads of Siberia. (11) The very popularity of this theme of a heavenly river has led scholars to assume that it was only natural for primitive man to look upon the amorphous cluster of stars in the Milky Way and ...
... that have run wild in America, where there were many peculiarities in the climate not to be found, perhaps, in any part of the old world, and where scarcely a single plant on which they fed was of precisely the same species, instead of altering their form and habits, have actually reverted to the exact likeness of the aboriginal wild cattle of Europe. In answer to the arguments drawn from the Egyptian mummies, Lamarck said they were identical with their living descendants in the same country, because the climate and physical geography of the banks of the Nile have remained unaltered for the last thirty centuries. But why, it may be asked, have other individuals of ...
28. Cuban Prehistory [Journals] [Kronos]
... vast monumental ritual and urban centers, nor did they possess any system of inscriptions such as the Mayan glyphs that still tantalize scholars, ranging from classical archaeology to computational cryptology. Strangely, in view of the proximity of Cuba's westernmost extension to the Yucatan peninsula, there is not the slightest evidence of any contact between the Maya and the Cuban aborigines. Nor, are their traditions, legends, and myths available to us. As peoples, the Cuban aborigines ceased to exist within the first century after the Spanish conquest. The greatest monument to them is poignantly negative: La Historia de la Destrucción de las Indias, by Father Bartolomé de las Casas- an impassioned denunciation of the ...
29. Of "Pre-existing Ideas" In The Souls Of Peoples, Part 2 Mars Ch.6 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... "Pre-existing Ideas" In The Souls Of Peoples The similarity of motifs in the folklore of various peoples on the five continents and on the islands of the oceans posed a difficult problem for the ethnologists and anthropologists. The migration of ideas may follow the migration of peoples, but how co uld unusual motifs of folklore reach isolated islands where the aborigines do not have any means of crossing the sea? And why did not technical civilization travel together with spiritual? Peoples still living in the stone age, possess the same, often st range, motifs as the cultured nations. The particular character of some of the contents of folklore makes it impossible to assume that it was only by ...
