101. A Maya Record of Two Thousand Years? [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... .14 and the other is 14.1 .16.12, which represent 111554 and 101852 days respectively from the Maya long count zero, and the difference between the two numbers is 9702 days. Thompson makes no mention of these two dates or their use. It was hoped that, starting at the beginning date for the Maya calendar with a catastrophe, we could date all the happenings of the Maya for the 2416 years given on pages 70-74 with catastrophes known to them for this period of time. This depends on the validity of the sequence followed in my reading of the numbers, and the use of the two dates attached to the series. My analysis was ...

... half size) with connecting lintels; the Trilithon Horseshoe consisting of 5 sets of uprights, each set of which is composed of 2 massive megaliths with a connecting lintel; and the smaller Bluestone Horseshoe of 19 slender stones embedded in the ground.

105. A New Theory of Celtic Festivals [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Catastrophism Workshop 1995 No 1 (June 1995) Home | Issue Contents ARTICLES A New Theory of Celtic Festivals by J.M . Williams The four great festivals which divided the Celtic year - Samain (1st November), Imbolc (1st February), Beltane (1st May) and Lugnasad (1st August) raise questions about the ancient calendar which are not satisfactorily answered by the usual explanations. TGE Powell describes the festivals: Samain marked the end of one year and the beginning of the next. It was considered to stand independently between the two and its position in relation to the natural seasons shows it clearly to have been the turning-point in a pastoralist, rather than an ...
106. The 360 Day Year: An Ambiguity Resolved [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History II:1 (Aug 1979) Home | Issue Contents The 360 Day Year: An Ambiguity Resolved John H. Fermor When Immanuel Velikovsky documented the widespread use of a 360 day calendar prior to 700 B.C ., and claimed this as proof of a change in the earth's motions, he introduced an ambiguity. If calendar days were solar and calendar years seasonal, then a 360 day year indeed demonstrates change, yet there are many ways of accounting for that change. We could posit a reduced year with normal day length. We could suppose year length to be unchanged but with longer days. We could vary both together. ...
107. Velikovsky, Brasseur, And The Troano Codex [Journals] [Kronos]
... and of Mayan monument stones. On the face of it, Mr. Johnson's criticism was just, for as Velikovsky, himself, acknowledged in note 2 of "On the Other Side of the Ocean": The Mayan tongue is still spoken by about 300,000 people, but of the Mayan hieroglyphics only the characters employed in the calendar are known for certain. But Mr. Johnson then went on to make the following statement: It is difficult to determine whether the other twenty-seven Brasseur quotations [in Worlds in Collision] covering three different works of this author also share this fault of being based on the translation results of the Landa Mayan "alphabet." More important ...
108. Magi, The Quest for a Secret Tradition by Adrian Gilbert [Journals] [SIS Review]
... might be possible to trace a tradition of ancient esoteric knowledge. As a result of his investigations he invents a tale of what the wise men saw in the sky and how it was interpreted according to the astrology and politics of the time. What will interest SIS readers is some of the early historical data and speculation and also the changing calendar at the turn of the millennium BC/AD and earlier. The book takes the form of a travelogue interwoven with sections of history, not all of which will be familiar, and which are not in chronological order. There is reference to early church history, art and architecture, the Templars, Crusades and many other subjects. ...
109. The Atlantis Researches by Paul Dunbavin (Book review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... BC, another idea of Velikovsky's that he seems to have appropriated. However, the evidence he presents is really very interesting. Before 3200 BC there were 360 days in the year, but thereafter it fluctuated, due to wobbles in the orbit that did not settle down until the first millennium BC, a solution that makes sense of ancient calendars in that our ancestors had trouble in defining exactly how many days there were in the year, as the number was in flux. It may also explain Alexander Thom's alignments that appear to involve the Moon and the Sun in very close detail. The legendary chronology of China, in tradition, dates from around 2953 BC. A disastrous ...
... and, it was said, "mapped out the heavens", which really signified that the seers and sages among the Druids discovered the true movements of the earth, devised the Solar Ecliptic, designed the zodiac of the twelve constellations through which the sun passes annually, classified the principal star groups according them specified names, invented also the calendar and studied the movements not of the regular constellations alone, but those of irregular bodies like comets. We were taught long ago that the Magi of the Chaldeans, Phoenicians, and Egyptians were the earliest pioneers in the field of astronomy, and this is quite correct if it be recognized that they were Druids. These wise men closely ...
