91. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Five [Books]
... as fig.1 at the end of this book. Here, then, is Humboldt's account; "First cycle. Its duration is 13x400+ 6 5206 years. This number is indicated on the right in the lower picture by nineteen rounds, thirteen of which are surmounted by a feather. We have already observed, speaking of the calendar, that the hieroglyphic of the square of twenty is a feather; and that, like the nails of the Etruscans and the Romans, more rounds indicated among the Mexicans the number of the years. This first age, which corresponds to the age of justice (Sakia Youga) of the Hindoos, was called Tlaltonatiuh, age of ...
92. Tiahuanaco and the Delug [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Nanabozu, the Crows' Coyote, the Greek Deukabon and Pyrrha, the Chinese Noah Kuen, and the Polynesian Tangaloa. It is evident there was a world-wide deluge 12,000 years ago. Global doomsdays are conspicuous in the Hopi Indian legends, the Finnish Kalevala epic, the Mayan Chilam Balam and Popol Vuh, and in the Aztec calendar, the last of which predicts that our present civilization will be destroyed by "nahuatl olin" or "earth movement," that is, devastation by earthquake. Due to Aztec cyclic theory this will become the fifth doomsday after the "death of the Jaguars," "the death of the Tempests," "the death of ...
93. Solving the Exodus Mystery by Ted T. Stewart [Journals] [SIS Review]
... at Xois from 1443-1260, Dynasty 16 (Hyksos) at Memphis from 1341-1224, Dynasty 15 (Hyksos) at Avaris from 1331-1224, and Dynasties 13 and 17 at Thebes from 1341-1224, so he has Dynasty 18 starting in 1224. In many ways this chapter is much weaker than the description and synchronisms with the earlier Pharaohs. Chapters on calendars and astronomical dating follow. The actual dates Stewart uses, he claims, are justified by Huber's computations. But, in the reviewer's opinion, the careful synchronisms of the biblical account of the time from Abraham to Moses, along with the documents from the 12th Dynasty, could move as a block with any starting date. In the ...
94. Response to Critique by Leroy Ellenberger [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... have already mentioned the new shortfall of the shadow of the Jerusalem sun dial. Another description was interplanetary lightning that struck, in Jerusalem's vicinity, the 185,000 (iron) lightning rods of Sennacherib's army, parked just outside Jerusalem, preparing for a final assault. A third change came later, when the Jews realized the old 360-day calendar could not be made to work. A five-day intercalary period, Veadar by name, begins to appear in the literature. It was tacked on to the twelfth of the Hebrew months, Adar. An interesting variety of other ancient calendars underwent comparable reorganizations. Following this final Mars-Earth flyby, the Uniformitarian Era arrived as Mars began a process ...
95. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of 1/636 represents 30 years. To account for the discrepancy because of the delay between Jehu's coup and his entry into Samaria' (p . 6) leaves a hiatus in the chronology which is contradicted by the synchronism 2 Kings 12:1 . That Aaronson's chronology fits the jubilee cycle mentioned by Prasher is hardly surprising. The calendar used is the LM (Liytziyat Mitzrayim or from the Exodus) calendar. The year 1 LM begins on the first of Nisan 1476 BCE' (p . 4). Stenring (The Enclosed Garden, 1965), calculated that the Jubilees were synchronised with the Seleucid Era so that the retroactive date of a sabbatical year fell in ...
96. Venus: A Battle Star? [Journals] [Horus]
... From: Horus Vol. 1 No. 2 (Summer 1985) Home | Issue Contents Venus: A Battle Star?by C.E . Bowen Introduction Measurement of time by celestial cycles and concern with the calendar played a much more visible role in ancient civilizations than in our own. In ancient times, the calendar was not merely a device to mark the days, weeks, and months of the year. The calendar system was perceived religiously and the priests gave the astronomical gods, active, vital roles in daily affairs. As a result, each day was different, depending upon which astronomical gods were believed to control or influence a particular phase of the calendar ...
97. Psychology and Ancient Astronomical Discovery [Journals] [Kronos]
... first stages of development toward present civilisation, Upper Paleolithic people have been conceived as too primitive to have achieved astronomy. But the bias extends far into the historical period where the practice of astronomy and capacity for accurate measurement are fully evident. Study of ancient astronomical knowledge has shown that, prior to the 7th Century B.C ., calendars and other astronomical observations do not conform to uniformitarian cycles. To remain within the uniformitarian framework, ancient observations which describe a different order in the solar system are, of necessity, regarded as inaccuracies. Alongside the general evidence for advanced skills in quantification and measurement, this conclusion presents a striking paradox. From the viewpoint of behavioural science ...
98. Comets, Meteorites and Earth History [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the Library Association for the Society's major meeting of the year, despite appalling weather. Both talks were very well received and enthusiastically discussed and it is hoped that edited versions of the full transcripts will duly appear in these pages. Consternation at Donati's Comet - as seen over Cambridge, 11th October 1858. "Early Historic Man - Catastrophism and Calendars" René Gallant began by outlining the various reasons for the creation of calendars by early man. Though it was "accepted generally that prehistoric and early historic man was unable to measure the exact length of the solar year", Gallant begged to differ. There can be little doubt that the people of the Neolithic period were as intelligent ...
99. The Stones of Time; Calendars, Sundials, and the Stone Chambers of Ancient Ireland by Martin Brennan (Book Review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2005 (Sep 2005) Home | Issue Contents The Stones of Time; Calendars, Sundials, and the Stone Chambers of Ancient Ireland by Martin Brennan Rochester, Vermont, 1994. Reviewed by Phillip Clapham The claim of this book is that megalithic mounds, otherwise known as passage graves or chambered tombs, are accurate sun chronometers whose structure required precise measurement to allow beams of light to illuminate the interiors at particular moments of the year – and indeed, throughout the year. One of the most important points raised by Brennan is that it was not simply the winter or summer solstice, or an equinox, that was being recorded or celebrated ...

... end of the Ice Age? .. .. .. or is Kloosterman right and we are faced with a geological span of time that has been invented? Phillip Clapham, Hazlemere, Buckinghamshire Dear Reader I have been reading Tom Holland's book, Rubicon (Abacus, 2004), and noticed that he makes no reference to Julius Caesar's calendar reform. Almost certainly on the advice of Alexandrian scholars, in his inaugural year of 45 BC Caesar adopted the calendar with a leap year every 4 years, recommended by the Canopus Decree of 338 BC. However, supposedly to bring his calendar back into line with traditional Roman dating, his inaugural year included an additional 3 months. ...
