... IV Sidelights On "atlantis"" The Greeks have no history upon which they can depend antecedent to the Olympiads. They have no written evidence of any antiquity relating to themselves or other nations." -JUSTYN MARTYR. PLATO represents the islands of Atlantis as highly civilized, possessing arts and crafts, ships and merchandise, and inhabited by the aboriginal race of men descended from the god Poseidon. In course of time corruption and tyranny led to the destruction of this godlike race. A great war ensued which lasted many years, the island being invaded by immense armies of Atlantean origin. In a last crucial battle, wherein we are told that the Athemans played a gallant but desperate ...
62. The Hurricane, Part 1 Venus Ch.3 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... wildly bursting," rushed on creation, in their midst Tawhirima-tea, father of winds and storms, and swept away giant forests and lashed the waters into billows whose crests rose high like mountains. The earth groaned terribly, and the ocean fled. "The earth was submerged in the ocean but was drawn by Tefaafanau," relate the aborigines of Paumotu in Polynesia. The new isles "were bated by a star." In the month of March the Polynesians celebrate a god, Taafanua.(8 ) "In Arabic, Tyfoon is a whirlwind and Tufan is the Deluge; and the same word occurs in Chinese as Ty-fong."(9 ) It appears as ...
63. The Myth of Osiris (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... disk, which, though it is described as the symbol of the Sun, may just as well stand for the shield of the full Moon.1 Set, however, even shows traces of a much older descent. He is generally regarded as one of the oldest gods of Egypt, as a god, in fact, of the aboriginal tribes before the rise of the Egyptians proper. Set, whom the Egyptians called the Terrible One', is frequently equated with Apepi, the dragon of darkness that lived in the far west, whence it rushed forth every day with its grisly band of demons. Apepi has been interpreted by most authorities as the evil being that swallows ...
64. On the Disproportion between Geological Time and Historical Time Part One - Of Apes and Men [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Like Aristotle, the natural philosopher supposes that the Universe is uncreated, that it goes through cycles of destruction and regeneration, and that life originated spontaneously out of non-life. Time, being uncreated, is infinite. The Earth is over 4 billion years old, the Universe anything from 10 to 20 billion years old, and probably before the aboriginal Big Bang there was another Universe which also exploded into being, contracted and collapsed. By contrast, Genesis implies that the Earth and the whole Universe came into existence less than 10,000 years ago. In the philosophical model human history traces a general progress from dullness and ignorance to intelligence and knowledge, so that this is itself ...
65. The Disastrous Love Affair of Moon and Mars [Books] [de Grazia books]
... . She dominated the skies as a phenomenon, and human strife on Earth. I concerned myself with the context of the song and discovered that it was a Holy Dreamtime song, not a sacrilegious burlesque. It was presented as an opera-ballet, meant to take place among the gods in heaven. The same art form exists today among the aborigines of Australia. I asked myself how such holy songs could arise, and found an answer in the modern theory of catastrophism. Precedents and parallels from many countries and cultures justify searching for catastrophism behind the lines of the love song of Demodocus. Greek culture was badly damaged by natural disasters of the eight and seventh centuries before this era ...

67. The Many Faces Of Venus - The Planet Venus in Ancient Myth and Religion by Ev Cochrane (Book Review). C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Evening Star but who was distinguished from the Morning Star, or Mars, whom she married. A slight digression into the war-like attributes of Mars is necessary at this point in order to make clear another aspect of the sacred marriage; Venus was the keeper of the fire sticks and Mars the fire drill, an association also encountered in Australian Aboriginal myth. A consideration of the portrayal of Venus in ancient art ranges from the Neolithic orb-in-circle and 4 or 8 spoked wheels', usually interpreted as sun images, to the Near East, with the development of the 8-petalled rosette and sun' on pillar images. By this stage the 8-pointed star and the rosette are acknowledged as special ...
68. Saturnists Play Marbles [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... : 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 ...
69. Book Reviews [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... 15, the authors talk of some of the most fascinating pictures of snakes as being those made by the bushmen of S. Africa but that for some strange reason the snakes are often depicted with a pair of horns. The horn motif is of course only too well recognised by the catastrophist! On page 19, the authors state that aborigines believe that mystic serpents dwell in many lakes and can be recognised in certain features of the landscape. The Murray River is supposed to have been excavated by a gigantic burrowing serpent while the artesian spring near Coward Springs Station is believed to be the mouth of a snake with the hill behind it of the monster's head. While vindicating catastrophism ...
70. The Atlantis Researches by Paul Dunbavin (Book review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... to a period as early as 3000 BC'. Manetho, he claims, placed a great flood in the period shortly before Menes, namely at around 3000 BC. There are references to a flood in the Book of the Dead papyri and he goes on to relate various myths of Creek Indians, the Vikings, the Pawnees, Australian Aborigines, Polynesians and South American tribes. He actually moves some material Mandelkehr dates at 2300 BC back to 3200 BC, especially Chinese traditions, and in a fairly convincing manner. Chinese myth involves the idea of heaven's pillars collapsing, rivers flowing in the opposite direction and the sun moon and stars moving from their positions in the sky. ...
