291. The Sacred Cow, Part 1 Venus Ch.9 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... the Hymns of the Atharva-Veda, in which the ambrosia that falls from the sky is glorified, the god is exalted as the "great cow" which "drips with streams of milk" and as "a bull" that "hurlest thy fire upon earth and heaven."(70) A passage of the Ramayana about the "celestial cow" says: "Honey she gave, and roasted grain . . . and curdled milk, and soup in lakes with sugared milk,11(71) which is the Hindu version of "rivers of milk and honey." The "celestial cow" or "the heavenly Surabhi" (" the fragrant") was ...
292. The McMaster University Symposium - June 1974 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... astrologers and devotees of pseudo-scientific beliefs like ley lines and world-wide megalithic cultures; the interventions of these caused some squirming among the relatively orthodox professionals present. The aim of the symposium was to focus debate on problems of fundamental importance for the catastrophic and uniformitarian viewpoints and much of the first two days was taken up with the problem of reconciling modern celestial mechanics with a cataclysmic solar system, perhaps the main obstacle among astronomers to treating Velikovsky's ideas seriously. The arguments here have to consist in essence of assuming that the mathematical explanation of modern observations can be extrapolated into the past and can reliably reconstruct what a celestial body was doing a few thousand years ago. Students of the historical sciences ...
... witch-doctor his magic. However! The astronomical correspondent of the Morning Post in 1925 said this: "It is now believed that a comet's head is actually a swarm of meteors." Not strictly accurate. It would have been more correct had he said that a comet became in due course a swarm of meteors, a comet being a celestial body in disintegration, broken up by perihelion contact with the sun. "As the ages pass," continues the writer, "the head partially disintegrates, leaving a trail of meteoric matter strewn throughout the entire circuit of the orbit." Here our instructor is very wrong. The ages do not pass with a body in a ...
294. The Opening of The Mouth Ritual - Part II [Journals] [Aeon]
... one soul between them, but the two halves of it were identified with the soul of Osiris and the soul of Ra..."  Put another way, Shu/Mars and Tefnut/Venus in con-junction "formed the dual-soul of the ancient sun-god."  The relationship of the goddess to a real celestial object is confirmed, says Rudolf Anthes, since "Only the Eye of Re is identified as a heavenly body in a few sentences of the Pyramid Texts."  A Coffin text may well support this, since it reads: ". .. I am this seed which [you] conceived...by ...
295. Samson Revealed [Journals] [Aeon]
... history. The truth seems to be that in the extravagance of its colouring the picture of Samson owes more to the brush of the story-teller than to the pen of the historian." (8 ) Almost unbelievably, in the same breath, Frazer goes on to defend the hero's basic historical nature against those who would make of him a celestial figure: "The marvelous and diverting incidents of his disreputable career probably floated about loosely as popular tales on the current of oral tradition long before they crystallized around the memory of a real man, a doughty highlander and borderer, a sort of Hebrew Rob Roy, whose cholic temper, dauntless courage, and prodigious bodily strength marked him ...

297. The Golden Age and Nova of Super Saturn [Books] [de Grazia books]
... ; Ea, the Akkadian Saturn, reproaches Enlil, or Jupiter, for having caused the sky-waters to fall (Mason, p77). Trisiras, a son of Prajapati and a saintly Saturn figure, was a three headed god with heads resembling the Sun, the Moon and the fire, which we interpret respectively as Saturn itself, the celestial crescent and the electric arc. Indra (a Hindu Jupiter) slew Trisiras with a thunderbolt, whereupon Trisiras' three heads shone with brilliant energy until they were cut off, and then flocks of birds flew out of them and his fever left his body. The powers that acted in the Heavens were manifested to humans amidst increasing disaster ...
298. Planetary Identities: II The Mythology of Homer [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Poseidon, god of the sea par excellence - I agree. But was he always so? As Elmer Suhr has ably shown, Poseidon's traditional connection with the sea is not only a strained one but is of somewhat late vintage . This requires some clarification and I shall be returning to the subject below. Meanwhile, the celestial origin of Poseidon has long been suspected even though this has been partly deduced through a misunderstanding of his major emblem, the trident. For long, mythologists had looked upon Poseidon's trident as a fishing spear but, since a celestial origin would make this somewhat incongruous, they next opted for it being a symbol for the thunderbolt [12 ...
299. The Terrible Ones, Part 2 Mars Ch.5 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... Nergal. As the similarity of the description of the "terrible ones" in the Vedic hymns and in Joel is striking, but has not been noticed, a few more quotations should follow here. The comets, just beginning to whirl, looked like revolving torches or writhing snakes; they assumed the form of spinning wheels, and the celestial phantasmagoria appeared like swift chariots; changing their forms, the Maruts looked like horses racing along the sky, and then again like a host of warriors, leaping, climbing, irresistible. The verses of the second chapter of Joel (2 : 2-11) are given in their order, interspersed with verses taken from a number of Vedic ...
300. Heracles as Cross-Dresser [Journals] [Aeon]
... It is our opinion that this archaic ritual, believed to rejuvenate the king and ensure fertility throughout the land, offers a decisive key to understanding the traditions surrounding Heracles' transvestism. The Sacred Marriage Rite Our best evidence for the theological rationale surrounding the sacred marriage rite comes from a text from Iddin-Dagan's reign (circa 1900 BCE). The celestial basis of the imagery is everywhere apparent: "To the great [lady] of heaven, Inanna, I would say: Hail! ' To the holy torch who fills the heaven, to the light, Inanna, to her who shines like daylight...Of the holy torch who fills the heaven, of her stance ...
