... the sun god sat and rose and set. Clearly things were not as they are now and all theories with the sun god depicted as the present Sun find themselves in extreme difficulties at the outset. Mythological connections point unerringly towards the conclusion that the sun god was in fact Saturn, who sat as a huge brightness on top of a column of bright material located in the north. The diurnal turning of the Earth led to the appearance of a revolving crescent illuminated by the real Sun and within the circle of Saturn's face could be seen the smaller circle of Venus with the even smaller Mars. The myths further point to the probability that at some point Mars descended towards the ...

[9 ] as though committed believers were only to be found among the ranks of alleged heretics and cultists. In addition, FRED JUENEMAN's continuing efforts deserve mention. In 1978 he devoted nine of his "Innovative Notebook" columns in Industrial Research/Development to Velikovskian subjects. His January-June and August-October musings cover a wide range of subjects, discussing magnetism thrice, radiohalos, radioactive dating, Stonehenge, celestial dynamics, the Hymn to Aton and the temperature of Venus. The December issue has a letter from an astronomer at the University of Delaware protesting the celestial dynamics ...

... , which is the question. As to the "coincidence" which brought Venus to Earth's vicinity on cue for the Exodus, a reader wrote Bova explaining, "That's like saying it's a coincidence that Vesuvius chose to erupt just as the people in Pompeii were about to die of suffocation." THE EXORCISM OF A HERESY In his weekly column for September 6, 1972, Dr. Arthur Sackler, international publisher of the Medical Tribune, quoted Warren Weaver, who was in turn quoting Murray Gell-Mann: "Some of our most successful institutions are in trouble, under attack, and even despised, sometimes by intellectuals and frequently by educated young people . . . In our country ...

... fall into its mouth." '[ 1 ] The cepola is a fish of the abyssal ocean, where it lives in perpetual darkness. If it feeds this way for twelve hours a day and collects one millimeter of material with its mouth, in which enough nourishment is contained, then in a year it might be said that a column of 365x 2 millimeters will be striking the ocean floor. This would amount to a column of 730 meters in 1000 years, assuming that inedible waste and compression cancel each other out. Since the ocean sediments average one kilometer, and our live precipitation meter may be at a typical location, the column will reach the average depth of ...

... 10]. Ager's admission is significant, because he is speaking about formations which to all appearances show continuous sedimentation - no gaps. Like Gould, he is arguing for the existence of what the record fails to record. The vast time required for evolution is in the invisible gaps, and the evidence for these is not in the geological column itself but in the theory of radiometric dating, a secondary theory which ought to be subject to the geological evidence. Time-gaps between touching formations, by contrast - formations which may indeed belong to non-consecutive geological systems - are common. There are very few places on Earth where a shaft sunk deep enough would pass through all the systems of ...

137. The Lion Gate at Mycenae [Journals] [Pensee]
... 3 ) among others, whose historical, authenticity he never doubted, Schliemann eventually revealed a brilliant world of pre-Hellenic culture hitherto unsuspected (4 ). The main entranceway to Mycenae, known as the Lion Gate (Fig. 1), is surmounted by two sculptured and now headless leonine figures- rampant, heraldically opposed and separated by a central column. Although once thought to be the oldest example of monumental sculpture in Europe (5 ), recent discoveries at Lepenski Vir in the Balkans have shown otherwise (6 ). Nevertheless, the Lion Gate remains a key monument in the history of ancient art serving, so to speak, as a kind of portentous prelude to the later ...

[Now is the time for readers to consider the tour because of the advanced planning time required.] We fly first to the city of Merida, capital of the Yucatan, this Mexican land of ancient pyramids and temples. We will stay at the Hotel Colon, a pleasant old hotel with marble floors and columns, brightly colored ceramic tiles and grand piano-bar in the lobby. The hotel staff makes guests feet at home with polite, pleasant, and good service at the outdoor pool and gardens, the suana and steam-bath rooms, and at the patio restaurant. But enough about the comforts for now. What about the adventure? The eight-day EduTour ...

The short list would include Venus as eye, heart and soul of Saturn; Venus as star in the center of the pictographic "sun"; hero in the womb of the goddess; hero as pupil of the eye; ancient conjunction or marriage of goddess and hero; the birth of the Martian column to "support" Saturn; Radiant Venus as the hero's rayed crown; goddess as nave of the cosmic wheel; hero as axle of the wheel; Venus as the Great Star in the center of the Saturnian crescent. As we will see in the course of these discussions, a vastly larger list is possible. Since the hypothesized ...
