33. Binomial Coefficients, Permutations and Combinations in Elam and Babylon [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History VI:1 (Jan 1984) Home¦ Issue Contents INTERACTION Binomial Coefficients, Permutations and Combinations in Elam and Babylon George R. Douglas, Jr. No adequate support is found for a concept that Babylonians, Elamites, and others of ancient times possessed any knowledge of binomialism, whether of binomial expansion, (1) generally thought to have been generalized by Sir Isaac Newton, or binomial coefficients, (2) generally thought to be expressed by Blaise Pascal and known by Arabs and the Chinese at least as late as A.D. 1303; (3) or of the study of permutations and combinations. While no hard data of binomial and combination study can be shown, it is generally conceded by many that knowledge of the binomial coefficients lies, of course, fully within the reach of Babylonian algebra. (4) The first evidence of the study of permutations comes in the mystic trigrams of the Chinese and Japanese, which appear in one of the oldest Chinese classics, the I-King. This consists of the various ...
34. The Inconstant Sun [Kronos $]
... there really a dearth of sunspots during the Little Ice Age, or is it simply that nobody bothered to keep accurate records in the seventeenth century? In the mid-1970s the question was resolved by Dr. John Eddy, of the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado, who turned detective-historian to answer the riddle plaguing climatologists. THE MAUNDER MINIMUM Sunspots were known to the ancient Greeks, but this knowledge was lost in the West and the spottiness of the Sun only rediscovered by Galileo in the early seventeenth century. (The Chinese knew about sunspots throughout this period when no observations were being made in the West-- but more of that later.) The realization that the Sun shows blemishes on its skin was among the "heresies" for which Galileo was persecuted; the central dogma of the Western Church in the centuries prior had been that the Sun was a perfect sphere, created in its perfection by God, so that suggesting imperfection in the Sun was seen in some quarters as implying that God could be fallible and was guilty of shoddy workmanship ...

Ancient religious art invariably expressed something by means of its symbols. It would be rash therefore to assume that the spiral was an exception to this rule. All symbols did not originate in the same way. Some were conventionalized natural subjects, or conventionalized living creatures, or simply characteristic features of these objects or creatures, such as a leaf or branch representative of a tree ...
37. The Polar Sun [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... ancient Mexican astronomy, concluding that the highest god was polar. From Mexico she shifted to other civilizations, finding the same unexpected role of a polar god. Reinforcing the surprising conclusions of the above researchers was the subsequent work of others, among them Uno Holberg (Der Baum des Lebens), who documented the preeminence of the polar god in the ritual of Altaic and neighbouring peoples, suggesting ancient origins in Hindu and Mesopotamian cosmologies; (2) Leopold de Saussure (Les Origines de l'Astronomie Chinoise), who showed that primitive Chinese religion and astronomy honour the celestial pole as the home of the supreme god; Rene Guenon (Le Roi du Monde and Le Symbolisme de la Croix), who sought to outline a universal doctrine centering on the polar gods and principles of ancient man. That these and other researchers, each starting down a different path, arrived at much the same conclusion concerning a supreme polar god of antiquity should have been sufficient to provoke a reappraisal of long-standing assumptions. Is it possible that, as these writers claimed, the ancient star-worshippers ...
38. The China Syndrome In Archeology [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 14: Winter 1981 Supplement Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects The China Syndrome In Archeology Bit by bit, evidence accumulates showing that Chinese and Japanese ships visited the American Pacific coast long before Europeans. Indian traditions tell of many "houses" seen on Pacific waters. Chinese history, too, tells a charming account of voyages to the land of Fusang. Even old Spanish documents describe oriental ships off the Mexican coast in 1576. Japanese explorers and traders evidently left steel blades in Alaska and their distinctive pottery in Ecuador. Recent underwater explorations off the California coast have yielded stone artifacts that seem to be anchors and line weights (messenger stones?). One line weight found at 2,000 fathoms is covered with enough manganese to suggest great antiquity. The style and type of stone point to Chinese origins for all these artifacts. Apparently, vessels from the Orient were riding the Japanese Current to North American shores long before the Vikings and Columbus reached the continent. ( ...
... McDowell To the Editor of KRONOS: William Douglas would have us consider Charles McDowell before laying the matter of Jonathan Swift and the moons of Mars to rest.(1) In my opinion, however, McDowell has written nothing about the subject that is worth considering. McDowell's hypothesis concerning the manner in which Swift might have obtained his information on the Martian satellites amounts to nothing more than a house of cards where surmise is precariously balanced upon conjecture. His hypothesis consists of the following: (2) 1) That the ancient Chinese might have had knowledge of the moons of Mars; 2) that Gottfried Leibniz might have obtained this knowledge through the Jesuit missionaries in China; 3) that Abate Conti might have stolen Leibniz' notes; 4) that Conti might have donated these notes to Isaac Newton; 5) that Newton might have confided in John Arbuthnot; and 6) that Arbuthnot might have passed on the information to Swift. If this is not a rice-paper pagoda, what is it? One would be hard pressed to uncover a more blatant ...
40. Chapter I: The Worship of the Sun and the Dawn [Dawn of Astronomy (Book)] [Books]
... places were made at about the same time in Egypt and Babylonia. This abstract inquiry is now practically the only source of interest in astronomy to us; we no longer worship the sun; we no longer believe in astrology; we have our calendar; but we must have a Nautical Almanac calculated years before- hand, and some of us like to know a little about the universe which surrounds us. It is very curious and interesting to know that the first stage, the stage of worship, is practically missing in the Chinese annals; the very earliest Chinese observations show us the Chinese, a thoroughly practical people, trying to get as much out of the stars as they could for their terrestrial purposes. In Babylonia it is a very remarkable thing that from the beginning of things-- so far as we can judge from the records-- the sign for God was a star. We find the same idea in Egypt: in some of the hieroglyphic texts three stars represented the plural "gods." I have already remarked that the ideas ...
