... as the year and the day. Unfortunately, astronomy can help us very little just now. However, when science has once become more reconciled to the chief points of Hoerbiger's Cosmological Theory, a competent person may undertake to calculate possible distances and times. At present the most significant figures are reached when we compare the Egyptian and the Assyrian calendar systems. The two are as different as is possible: the former reckoning in solar cycles, each consisting of 1460years; the latter calculating by lunar cycles, equal to 1805 years. As it is a very natural thing to set' a calendar by some momentous cosmic phenomenon, and as the transformation of a planet into a satellite ...
142. Commemoration Of The 2300bc Event [Journals] [SIS Review]
... traditions of a widespread destruction by fire from heaven, probably remembrance of a devastating rain of meteors'. My investigations strongly support these conclusions. Mexico The Spanish conquerors in Mexico found a tradition that the world was once destroyed when the Pleiades culminated at midnight  and this was dramatically commemorated by the Aztecs. These people maintained two calendars, based on a 365-day and a 260-day year. The beginnings of these years coincided every 52 years, at which time there was tremendous fear of a catastrophe. A critical ceremony was scheduled for the night when the Pleiades would culminate at midnight. First, the people smashed all the pottery in their houses and put out all fires ...

145. Midsummer Madness [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... to check the data on which Prof. Hawkins had based his ideas by visiting the site myself. It seemed to me that his case stands or falls primarily on the veracity of the major alignment of Centre/Heel Stone/Midsummer sunrise, by which Prof. Hawkins claims to establish the main purpose of the monument: co-ordination of the calendar to the seasons. The angle of the Heel Stone when seen through the central arch is 590 magnetic (i .e . 51 45'), accurate to within ½ . I noticed at the time that the skyline to the North East of Stonehenge is over 100-feet higher than the monument itself, at a distance of about 1 ...
146. Forum: Did Jews Fabricate Their History Between 500 and 1099AD? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... a cultural and archaeological void of analogous duration. While Illig and Heinsohn are on their guard to direct their accusations chiefly against medieval Christian fraudsters, Illig also ponders about Jewish co-conspirators who may have assisted in fabricating a correspondingly fictitious Jewish chronology [6 , 7]. All the same, both authors seem oblivious of the fact that the Christian calendar (i .e . the Anno Domini system of dating) was to a large extent moulded on a much older Jewish chronology that provided a reliable foundation for determining the century in which Jesus was born. Since the early 1990s, there have been numerous attempts to show that this conspiracy theory is untenable and is readily falsified by Jewish ...

... , however clever, which are attempting chronologically to pin down what is so patently an ancient celestial myth? Jill Abery, Rodmersham, near Sittingbourne, Kent The Year of Confusion I came across a curious fact which I cannot help thinking is significant. Whilst tidying-up notes on Roman chronology I noticed Julius Caesar had to add 90 days to the calendar to bring the year into line with the seasons. This resulted in a 445 day year and became known as The Year of Confusion. The Year of Confusion took place in 45BC and I wondered by how many years the calendar must have drifted to create such a large adjustment. Finding the answer to that is simple. We know ...
148. Is Is Illig Right, and and AD Chronology Wrong? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... from the east. The Byzantine and Islamic worlds did not, in any sense, experience a dark age' or collapse of civilisation. Therefore there is no reason to suppose that their histories should be in any way uncertain or unclear. Yet Byzantine chronology stands in total agreement with the conventional model, as does Islamic, which dates its calendar from the exile of Mohammed to Medina (the Hijrah or Hegira). Thus, if conventional AD chronology is wrong, we would have to assume a conspiracy involving not only the whole of western Europe, but also the Byzantine and Islamic worlds. Against all of this, there was much that made me begin to have second thoughts ...

... almost collide with Earth every 52 to 54 years (this period varying according to perturbations from the other planets), unless or until an extremely close encounter destabilises the resonant, or phase-lock, stability (Fig. 4). I find this very intriguing in view of the fact that, as Velikovsky has pointed out, the Maya sacred calendar was 52 years in duration: at the end of every 52 years, approximately, the calendar finished - whereupon the Maya sat around waiting for the world to end . (When it didn't, they started up a new 52-year calendar.) Velikovsky has also given references to the Hebrew Bible, where a period of ...
