181. Northwest Indian Myths of Catastrophe [Articles]
... . The scenario, of course, requires that the Paleo-Indian hunters cross the Bering Strait, rush to Nashville or Knoxville to invent the new point, then migrate back to Siberia and re-cross the Bering Strait on hunting forays into immense herds of mammoths. The doctrine of evolution thus leads directly to the Bering Strait theory and now, in a bizarre twist, has led to the Big Game Hunters megafauna-cide. It seems quite obvious to us that immense tidal waves of catastrophic nature deposited all kinds of animal skeletons all over the world. Orthodoxy, however, insists that the animals "migrated" across dozens of mythical land bridges in order to leave their fossils on different continents. Thus ...
182. Theomachy in the Theater: on the Fringes of the Collective Amnesia [Journals] [Kronos]
... The Pandora's Box of monsters, once opened, is not so easily closed. Like the unstoppable broom of Walt Disney's Fantasia or the nightmarish monsters released in the art of the Swiss-born painter Fuseli(8 ) and the Spanish artist Goya,(9 ) Godzilla returns again and again often accompanied by an entirely new array of monsters each uniquely bizarre, potent, and terrifying in its own right. In fact, the hapless Japanese are forced to cinematically relive their horrifying experiences in a never ending cycle of doom as each new movie relentlessly repeats an unvarying scenario of death and disaster. In the meantime, the viewer can only wonder at the spectacle of repetitious self-punishment which the Japanese ...
183. The Cosmic Origin of the Swastika [Journals] [Aeon]
... a central way. As time passed, the memory of the true events might fade, and the stories become vaguer, but the cometary form would still be a dominant motif in the art and records of the previous generations... After thousands of years, the cometary symbol, whatever it was, might be wholly disconnected from its bizarre and awesome origins." (26) Comet shapes, or types, painted on silk from a Chinese Han Dynasty tomb. c. 168 B. C. They therefore ask if there are any widespread ancient celestial symbols that might indicate a rotating comet and tentatively suggest that the swastika, which they found scattered all over the ancient ...
184. Thoth Vol III, No. 18: Dec 31, 1999 [Journals] [Thoth]
... .html For more about the linguistic evidence, see Dave Talbott's articles, HOW CATASTROPHIC EVENTS GENERATE LANGUAGE, and THE MYTHIC ROOTS OF LANGUAGE in THOTH III-14, III-15, and III-16.- SATURN 101 By Amy Acheson Discussion by Bob Johnson, Michael Armstrong, Ev Cochrane First of all, the Saturn Theory is an absurd theory, "bizarre in the extreme" according to Dwardu Cardona, one of its main researchers. It's not something you want to believe (or dismiss) with a single reading. Furthermore, the entire story hasn't been told yet, although there are at least four books in the works that will hopefully remedy that. Velikovsky first pointed the way to ...
185. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... sterile and chemically active environment the Traps once were. 11) Atkinson exhibits both irony and chutzpah [= effrontery/cheek] in defending Velikovsky... by suggesting... Winter needs a quantitative appendix and denigrating... Winter's revolutionary ideas because they conflict with the status quo'. I have never believed or supported Velikovsky's bizarre physics/astronomy. I have not slandered Clube & Napier's ideas; I have legitimately criticised their poor exposition and evidence. How is a request for quantitative treatment a defence of Velikovsky? Ellenberger suggests that their papers (with others) in NRAS and QJRAS [Royal Astronomical Society papers - not widely available] should satisfy my quantitative doubts ...

... entire thing and I must honestly say that it was not until I had read Hamlet's Mill that I finally accepted all that I had unearthed. If, as I reasoned at the time, scholars of the caliber of Giorgio de Santillana and Hertha von Dechend, the authors of Hamlet's Mill, had been able to unearth the same set of bizarre situations, I could not be that far off the mark myself. Amy adds: The full introduction can be found at the following SIS Silver Jubilee website, and the full paper is scheduled to be published early next year by the SIS Review. http://www.knowledge.co.uk/sis/silver/ ...
187. RECONSTRUCTING THE SATURN MYTH [Journals] [Aeon]
... , but with the collective experience of amazing celestial events. World-Embracing Crescent It would be almost impossible to overstate the importance of the symbolic crescent to our understanding of the ancestral experience. The pervasive obstacle to understanding is the natural tendency, no matter what the context, to identify all crescent imagery with the new Moon. On seeing the most bizarre associations of the image in the ancient world, who has ever actually wondered if something other than the crescent Moon was indicated? But in this investigation our purpose is to take direction from the myths and symbols themselves and to superimpose nothing of prior assumption upon them. As improbable as such a statement might seem, there was originally no ...
188. The Reflective Canopy Model and the Mytho-historical Record [Journals] [Aeon]
... frequently observed on high mountain peaks? Or, who has not seen pictures of a ship appearing upside down in the sky above the horizon, the inverted reflection of an actual ship that is still below the viewer's line of sight? What, after all, is a mirage- and some, like the Fata Morgana, can be quite bizarre (27)- if not a reflection manipulated by stratified air layers of different temperatures? It can thus be seen that Zysman's proposal of a reflective canopy composed of ice crystals at some distance from the Earth's surface is not, in itself, farfetched. But, in order for this mirrored dome to reflect with the precision that Zysman's ...

... , but how this could happen is unknown. It does contain methane, which does not survive more than 10,000 years, so this must be continually replenished, but there is no sign of the oily seas and lakes that had been expected to be present in order to explain this. It is already being referred to as a bizarre' world, but, then, which planet or moon has ever turned out to be what they expected? More Mysteries of Mars (New Scientist, 20.11.04, p. 8 and 29.5 .04, p. 13; Scientific American, May 2004, p. 21; Science Frontiers, No ...
190. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... dark energy etc. Dark matter had to be invented as a sort of band-aid because gravity alone is insufficient to explain observations. Indeed, one researcher has been assessing measurements of gravity and came to the conclusion that it is science's least constant constant'. A reader, in response to the Chown article, wrote, Fundamental theories seem increasingly bizarre, quixotic and just plain wrong. The ineluctable conclusion is that the remainder of the scientific community, as well as the tax payers and the general public, have been well and truly hoodwinked. ' Is the emperor at last being shown up to be naked? Are we on the verge of a paradigm shift which might consider the ...
