122. An Appendix to My Articles on Hatshepsut and Thutmose III [SIS C&C Review $]
... VII, the proceedings of the Fifth International Congress on Biblical Studies, Oxford, 1973, published in 1982. (Those concerned about the delay in the publication of the Glasgow Proceedings please note the dates!) Blair's paper is rather unhappily titled: "New Questions on Old Subjects- Velikovsky's and Erich von Däniken's questions: a plea for archaeological rethinking". von Däniken's involvement in the paper is mercifully restricted to one restatement of a question posed by that writer in Chariots of the Gods?: "Why was there a Sirius calendar in Egypt distinct from the official calendar?" The question has, of course, been raised in better ways by dozens of writers apart from the wayward "ancient astronaut" theorist. Blair himself rephrases the question more appropriately, and it is to be regretted that von Däniken was rather unnecessarily introduced into what is otherwise a succinct restatement of the major points made in Ages in Chaos. Blair skilfully summarises the arguments and describes how his own interest in Velikovsky's work was revived by the curious results from radiocarbon tests being produced during ...
123. Vox Popvli [Aeon Journal $]
... Contents Vox Popvli Mixed Praises... Duane Vorhees, from Seoul, Korea, writes: As someone who has been disappointed in recent issues of AEON, I found V:3 to be by far the strongest issue since Dwardu Cardona took on its editorship. Every article, in my opinion, was both readable and, in some sense, seminal. I "always" enjoy the work of Ev Cochrane, and his paper on the feminine Venus [1 was no exception. I also found the discussion of the Jewish calendar [2 to be extremely important in its conclusions. [3 Although not really of much evidentiary value, since it is based on various unproved hypotheses, the chronological article by Murphie [4 does offer a new way of examining the evidence. In any case, I found it to be very thought-provoking. I hope Cardona keeps up with the high standards evidenced by this particular issue....and one Dissatisfied Customer Vine Deloria, Jr., from Boulder, Colorado, writes: Well...I don't think I will renew ...
124. Velikovsky's "The Tomb of Ahiram" [SIS C&C Review $]
... the introduction of the alphabet to Greece, was the Nikdem or Nikmed who was expelled from Ugarit with the Ionians and Carians by Shalmaneser III in about -855. If this assumption is correct, it is also possible that the as yet undeciphered cylinders with cuneiform signs discovered in the Kadmeion in Thebes may turn out to be cuneiform alphabetic Greek. Closing Discussion The Conference closed with a general discussion session, of which we again print extracts. The first questioner enquired about the strength of the evidence for the existence of a 365-day Egyptian civil calendar, without leap years, as far back as the time of the Old Kingdom. Jones: I can think of two sources which support the idea of accepting a 360+5-day year in Egypt. One is the material from Deir el-Medineh, where there are records of workmen working shifts on the construction of the royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings. The Egyptian year was divided into 10-day "weeks" (with, obviously, 36 "weeks" in a year), and the workmen at Deir el-Medineh went ...

127. Megaliths, Moon Cycles, and Movements of the Earth [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... concerning the accuracy of observation possible at many of the sites; nevertheless, there seems to be a good case for considering that many of them were built with lunar alignments in mind.(2) Outside Britain, Professor Maxia, working on the nuraghi of Sardinia, has shown that the associated 'well-temples' are astronomically significant and based on the Moon.(3) If it is accepted that these observations are correct, what could be the motivation behind this obsession? One often suggested idea is that Moon watchers were making a calendar in order to time their hunting or agriculture to the seasons of the solar year. This is possible for the earliest and roughest observations, although it is difficult to understand how societies living close to nature could fail to know the seasons by a multitude of natural signals which are far more reliable than a primitive calendar. This would rapidly run out of sequence and be incapable of predicting unseasonable conditions. When it comes to the study of megalithic sites, however, it becomes obvious that such a simple explanation will no longer suffice ...

... program for the task, took more than a minto solve the problem. She took 50 seconds. "And, in 1981, she made the Guinness Book of World Records as the 'Human Computer' by correctly multiplying two 13-digit numbers-- 7,686,369,774,870 times 2,465,099,745,779-- in 28 seconds.

Devi is also a calendar calculator, being able to name the day of the week for any date in the past or future, taking into account leap years and calendar changes.

129. The Celestial Clock [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2002:2 (Dec 2002) Home¦ Issue Contents The Celestial Clock www.celestialclock.com The Celestial Clock employs a unified theory of natural cyclicity, which reaches apocalyptic proportions in every 11,500- 23,000 years. The book reveals the sacred symbology of the Seven Stars of Pleiades, serpents, dragons, scorpions, lamb and bull along with indisputable scientific proof that the Mayan Calendar is based on the 23,000 year ice volume collapse cycles recently discovered in ocean sedimentation and ice core drill down studies from Greenland and Antarctica. It is the dominant cycle of the "100,000" year Milankovitch ice age theory. The ancient prophets, seers, shamans, and medicine men knew about these natural apocalyptic cycles and tried their best to warn us through using animal symbology constructed from star constellations to teach us a cosmic size lesson using the Earth as the hand of a clock and the sky as the face of the clock. It is no coincidence that Revelation of the Bible talks about "red fiery dragon" and the ...
