... all believed in an original paradise. Paradise mythology is so pervasive, and is so central to the religious mythology of the vast preponderance of ancient peoples, that historian of religion Mircea Eliade considers nostalgia for paradise to be at the very core of humankind's spiritual impulse: for the shaman as for the Christian; for the Taoist as for the Aborigine, it is the longing for a lost paradise that motivates ritual, ceremony and belief. In the face of the unanimity of the ancients' belief in an original Golden Age, proponents of the non-historical approach to myth interpretation are more or less forced not so much to explain paradise myths as to explain them away. As more and ...

... whiten while the sky becomes darker and bluer. At a time related to the changes soon to be discussed, around fourteen thousand years ago, the Earth is suddenly peopled by humans, and one may investigate whether any memories remain of the plenum. There seem to be several legendary themes that correlate with our deductions about visibility. Seemingly, aboriginal legends describe the heavens as hard, heavy, marble-like and luminous. Earliest humans were seeing a vault, a dome [34]. Probably in retrospect, to the heaven was ascribed the human qualities of a robe or covering, and, by extension, part of an anthropomorphic god. Thus, the Romans saw Coelus, the ...

83. The Sun Ages, Prologue Ch.2 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... ) The Sibylline books recite the ages in which the world underwent destruction and regeneration. "The Sibyl told as follows: The nine suns are nine ages. . . . Now is the seventh sun. '" The Sibyl prophesied two ages yet to come- that of the eighth and of the ninth sun.(12) The aborigines of British North Borneo, even today, declare that the sky was originally low, and that six suns perished, and at present the world is illuminated by the seventh sun.(13) Seven solar ages are referred to in Mayan manuscripts, in Buddhist sacred books, in the books of the Sibyl. In all quoted sources ...

... (13) Armed with material gleaned from many sources from around the world, including especially the one that Boas had referred him to, Velikovsky was able to dispute the notion that myths could so easily be disseminated. The migration of ideas may follow the migration of peoples, but how could unusual motifs of folklore reach isolated islands where the aborigines do not have any means of crossing the sea? Peoples still living in the stone age possess the same, often strange, 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 mere chance that the same motifs were created in all corners of the ...

... found salvation from the cataclysm in a cave of a mountain which the water god Tlaloq had indicated to them. The Tahitians tell that the survivors from the cataclysm took refuge from the flood upon the highest mountain. There they had to hide in a cave to escape a great rain of stones' which descended then. The Santals, an aboriginal race of Bengal, tell that at the time when almost all the human race was destroyed by fire-rain', a number of people survived because they took refuge in houses of stone, with stone doors' evidently caves whose mouths had been barricaded with lumps of rock. According to Hoerbiger's Cosmologic Theory of the end of satellites, it ...

... Age in others. Even now there are numerous tribes in Africa, Australia, and Tierra del Fuego, the southern tip of the Americas, still living in the Stone Age, and many other regions of the modem world would have remained in the Stone Age had it not been for the importation of iron from more advanced regions. The aborigines of Tasmania never got so far as to produce a polished-neolithic-stone implement, and in fact barely entered the crudest stone age. This large island south of Australia was discovered in 1642 by Abel Tasman; the last Tasmanian died in exile in 1876, and the race became extinct. The more recent uplifts in the Himalayas took place also in ...

... thought that a racial element akin to the Ainu make up one thread of the indigenous Americans. They may even have reached the Americas long before the end of the Ice Age, before the Mongoloid peoples that were able to take advantage of the Bering land bridge. Another interesting feature is that the Ainu have some features in common with Australian Aborigines. However, that is getting away from Hancock. Underworld is a big book, over 600 pages, packed with interesting ideas and can be devoured surprisingly quickly. Hancock is not an archaeologist - he is a journalist, able to spin things and wring out doubtful data. Hancock is intent to use every little glimmer of evidence, ...

... the ancient astronautics proposed by Erich Von Däniken,(11) it may be that we should consider the possibility of an ancient aerial technology of purely terrestrial origin, of the sort suggested by Andrew Tomas.(12) Finally, an ideological question remains. If diffusionist logic is followed consistently, it obliges us to conclude that the American aborigines had not only urbanism but horticulture introduced to them by more sophisticated peoples from the Eastern Hemisphere and that, without such external stimulus, they would never have developed a way of life more advanced than that of nomadic hunting and food-gathering. Van Sertima has quite properly protested the application of a comparable logic to the cultural evolution of sub-Saharan Africa ...

... to have an adaptive value. Such non-utilitarian or neutral characters have long troubled Darwinians since in such cases there can be no question of selection favoring them inasmuch as they would have no influence on survival rate or reproductive success.(60) As an example of such non-utilitarian characters we might consider the case of the tibular facets found among certain aborigines. Early anthropologists called attention to the strange fact that natives of Oriental descent customarily assumed a particular posture when squatting. The Oriental's mode of squatting may be contrasted with that typically assumed by Australian aborigines (see Figure 2). These respective modes of squatting, it turns Out, result in definite structural modifications of the tibia and related ...
