121. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... book about the massive amount of evidence that red shifts of light from distant galaxies are not solely due to their velocities. As today's cosmology, with all its far-fetched ideas, is based on this assumption it is easy to see why other cosmologists do not want to accept Arp's work but it cannot be ignored as this book shows. The Calendar by David Ewing Duncan 1998, Fourth Estate Ltd With the approach of the millennium, a spate of calendar books is appearing. This one, subtitled The 5000-Year Struggle to Align the Clock and the Heavens and What Happened to the Missing Ten days', is a readable account of the history of calendar making over the last 13, ...
122. Quartered At Yale [Journals] [Kronos]
... the reign of Yao for ten days the sun remained above the horizon; all the forests burned; a multitude of "abominable vermin" was brought forth; an immense wave that "reached the sky" fell on China and swept over high mountains; thereafter the lower regions of the country remained inundated for more than two generations; the calendar was disordered, and it was also necessary to find anew the cardinal points - east, west, north, and south - which was difficult because the land was covered with gloom for many years. It is said also that a new bright star was born in the days of Yao. All this, I demonstrated in my book ...
123. The 108-year Cyclicism of the Ancient Catastrophes [Journals] [Aeon]
... water is not good science, but such is what happened. Better is it to separate the baby from the bath water and to clean it, dry it and diaper it. Step III. A Recognition of the Ancient 360-day Year. This was one of Velikovsky's several shining breakthroughs. He amassed information from thirteen ancient civilizations where a 360-day calendar was used satisfactorily. One of those cultures, the Persian, had 180 days in a "month." Another, the Roman, had 36 days in a "month.". Another, the Chinese, had 15 days in a semi-month, while yet another, the Mayan, had 5 days in a "week. ...

125. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the flights of fancy which form part of the diet of WORKSHOP, and am pleased to note that you are willing to print opposing views. Though overall I find WORKSHOP stimulating reading, I would like to follow in the august footsteps of Dr. Bimson and take your contributor M. Rowland to task. Intriguing as his suggestions for a calendar reform are, their relevance to Velikovskian or catastrophist studies seems tenuous in the extreme, and his grasp of the history of the western calendar is less than complete. A minute's research would have freed Mr. Rowland from his main misunderstanding - that January and February were at some time invented' and added' to the year, which ...
126. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Workshop No. 5 (Apr 1979) Home | Issue Contents Letters Sir , I should like to comment on Mike Rowland's short discussion of our calendar and its Roman origins (Newsletter 3, p.10-11) by offering the following corrections and observations. Firstly, it is manifest to those who have studied the civilised nations of antiquity that the Romans were one of the most ignorant of "civilised" peoples; their one strength was land warfare, other things were beyond their invention. Quite why they should have seen fit to invent a calendar of their own when they could have brought a good one with them is an excellent topic for discussion. The ...
127. Investigating the Mound-Builders' Astronomy [Journals] [Horus]
... . A small ceremonial structure stood at the northern edge of the upper level, reached by ascending the wide stairway that began at the southern end of the mound. To the West, a woodhenge from which an observer atop a raised pedestal in the center of the ring of tall poles could observe the sunrise on significant days in the ceremonial calendar. The second greatest, attributed to an ancient people called the Adena is the Grave Creek Mound located in Moundsville, West Virginia. Relatively well preserved, and with a protecting museum next to it, this earthwork is 70-feet high and 333-feet wide. It required over two million basketloads of dirt to construct by a people who have left ...
128. Letter to the Editor from Christoph Marx [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... which is proved by the lunar eclipses mentioned in the Almagest,"2 and through the Babylonian king list A with three rulers being kings of Babylonia and Assyria at the same time. Three lunar eclipses are given for the years 721 and 720. The Ptolemaic Canon, which links our own to ancient chronology, is built upon the Egyptian calendar with years of 365 days only. In effect, however, the year 763 B.C . fixes the chronologies of all nations of the Ancient East for many centuries. This date having been derived from actualistic calculations, it cannot be accepted within the frame of Reconstructed History: at least for the present it is completely impossible to ...
129. The Year -747, Part 2 Mars Ch.1 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... " © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Year -747 If the commotion of the days of Uzziah was of global character and was brought about by an extraterrestrial agent, it must have caused some disturbance in the motion of the earth on its axis and along its orbit. Such a disturbance would have made the old calendar obsolete and would have required the introduction of a new calendar. In -747 a new calendar was introduced in the Middle East, and that year is known as "the beginning of the era of Nabonassar." It is asserted that some astronomical event gave birth to this new calendar, but the nature of the event is not known ...
130. On the Length of Reigns of the Sumerian Kings [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the astronomical' year part of the King List, the sign for king is expressed by umun << . This is no accident. The two signs are not intended to have synonymous meanings. The first sign stood for king, and the second for on-high = umun = perfect value = 60 = umun. The Sumerians did not record calendar years, or any specific features of the solar year. On the other hand, all the phases of the moon, including the numbers of days of the moon, are delineated or specified in a multitude of documents . The word mu is used plainly enough to indicate a repetitious cycle'. A lunar period is ...
