... , in geology and astronomy, who upset V .'s chronology beyond the Eighteenth Dynasty of Egypt, who pointed out correctly evidence of pro-Biblical bias, who disputed his identification of the astronomical bodies implicated in certain legends, who pinned down the sources of numerous uncertainties, who reduced vagueness, who found and accommodated predecessors in the esoteric and difficult literature of catastrophism, ... : what qualification, one might ask, does Bauer have for writing a book of sociology, history, ethnology, and political analysis, not to mention meteorology, geology, astronomy, etc.? Does he regard himself as a greater polymath than any of us? Then again, he contradicts my analysis of Margolis and a group of Yale reviewers, ... called "the absent footnote technique" which with disastrous effectiveness eliminates an undesired line of ancestors, such as V. Stecchini in the 1970's pointed out that Schiaparelli was a leading astronomer but could not get acceptance of his idea that Venus was scarcely rotating in relation to the Sun, showing an "Earth-Lock" as it comes closest to the Earth. The ...

... of Maya source: New Scientist 8.10.81, p. 101 It has long been wondered if the numerous dates recorded by the Maya on their buildings and on pillars might have some astronomical significance. Floyd Lounsbury of Yale University, a calendar expert, has studied some of these dates and has concluded that "most of them can be associated with significant points in ... 3:1, p. 20. As W. G. Shannon of Edinburgh pointed out, any variations in solar size during historical times has extremely significant implications for megalithic astronomy. The debate continues, and, despite several recent publications on the subject, the matter is far from being resolved. The New Scientist piece tells that the claims made by ... G. W. Cameron of Harvard College Observatory who believes that the planets formed successively, but from the inner regions of the Solar System. Notable mention is given to Swedish astronomer Hannes Alfven. "He believes that magnetic fields were as important as gravity in forming the planets." One big advantage of the Alfven theory over conventional nebula theories is that ...

... . It is quite wrong to suggest that he only made use of the 30-day months of Ammisaduqa. Moreover, his work is certainly not a failure. He did establish the astronomical date. 3. On page 2 of their article, the authors state that "it cannot be overemphasized that neither Huber nor Weir... ever attempted, even for ... aim at a powerful and deeply entrenched orthodoxy and tried to overturn it. To a considerable extent, he succeeded. Catastrophism is firmly established (though not fully accepted) in astronomy and other sciences. Velikovsky himself has still not been forgiven for breaking the bad news about our planet's past. People are grouchy when they first wake up, but sooner or ... for continental drift providing a credible explanation for equatorial glaciers and corals in the Arctic, I will remind Ellenberger that the Soviets do not accept this. Persons as distinguished as the astronomer R. A. Lyttleton remain bitter opponents of continental drift: publication of the measurement of the drift has not stopped their opposition. Lyttleton in particular continues to provide cogent arguments ...

That scholars have been motivated to divorce the goddess' warrior-aspect from the planet Venus stands to reason, for what could such imagery have to do with the planet known to modern astronomers, which typically presents a beautiful, tranquil appearance and never ever rages, storms, laments, wars, or otherwise offers a threatening apparition? Indeed, it is the incongruity ...

This is a comprehensive, non-selective, region-by-region compendium of gods, their attributes and symbols, and listings of astronomical traditions, general folklore, and superstitions.

In this regard, we will welcome suggestions from readers. We are seeking to identify uniquely open-minded researchers with the highest qualifications in these areas of interest: cosmology, astronomy, physics and mathematics, geology, history and philosophy of science, anthropology, archaeology, linguistics, comparative mythology, and comparative religion. We would particularly like to hear from ... human race and that substratum of ancient memories is highly unified. SCHOLARLY AND SCIENTIFIC OUTREACH. Perhaps our greatest progress over the past year resulted from liaison with such distinguished experts as astronomer Halton Arp, plasma cosmologist Tony Peratt, and geologist Robert Schoch. Our plan is to expand and accelerate such liaison in the coming months as we look ahead to the July ...

... entirely different reason. The most recent archaeological and scientific research has demonstrated that the Thomist hypotheses comprising the megalithic yard, the convoluted geometries of the stone rings, and the various astronomical alignments, are nothing more than the products of a massive misinterpretation by the Thoms of their own survey work.(2) Aveni's chapter on Mesoamerican astronomy, based mainly on ... with the relatively modern sites of post-Columbia North America and is thus irrelevant to the subject at large. The chapter by the two Thoms, "Rings and Menhirs: Geometry and Astronomy in the Neolithic Age," can be dismissed for an entirely different reason.

The problem is, how can electrical charges of any appreciable magnitude exist when every astronomer knows that the hot atmospheres of stars are strongly ionised and therefore good conductors, and that the atmospheres of galaxies are as rarefied as a good vacuum by laboratory standards, in ...

... the rarefied atmosphere, according to C E R Bruce, at over 4000km/sec for tens of millions of years and eventually forming galactic arms. There is no generally accepted astronomical explanation for these jets, and unfortunately they are not yet recognised as evidence that electrical discharges are taking place in astronomical atmospheres. If it could be clearly shown that the relatively ... with those of assumed discharges scaled up to stellar and galactic levels demonstrates the value of this work. The benefits could be of reciprocal value to meteorologists and astronomers. Electricity in Astronomy /3 Eric Crew B.Sc., F.I.E.E., F.R.A.S.

I described and seen so many difficulties they prefer to avoid the risk of expressing an opinion? It would be interesting to know, but as in the case of a former Astronomer Royal who said that the idea of space travel was nonsense, we shall probably never know what exactly went on in the mind of this eminent gentleman).

100. PREFACE [Dawn of Astronomy (Book)] [Books]
... PREFACE THE enormous advance which, has been recently made in our astronomical knowledge, and in our power of investigating the various bodies which people space, is to a very great extent due to the introduction of methods of work and ideas from other branches of science. Much of the recent progress has been, we may indeed say, entirely dependent upon ... introduction of the methods of inquiry to which I refer. While this is generally recognised, it is often forgotten that a knowledge of even elementary astronomy may be of very great assistance to students of other branches of science, in other words, that astronomy is well able to pay her debt. Amongst those branches is obviously that which deals with man's first ... a great many stars up to 2000 B.C., but to carry on this investigation we must certainly go back to 7000 B.C., and include southern stars. While the astronomer is doing this, the Egyptologist, on his part, must look through the inscriptions with reference to the suggestions which lie on the surface of the inquiry. The astronomical and ...
