141. "Examine All The Evidence Yourself At First Hand". File III (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... ." He continued: Then how should you, as a reader, go about Judging between new and old theories, between the orthodox and the heterodox? The only sure way- and even not too sure- is to examine all the evidence yourself at first hand. That means you actually look at the specimens, even if you have to cross oceans to do so. Any experiments you repeat, under adequate controls and safeguards. Any calculations and measurements you run over yourself to be sure they are accurate. Any assertions that cast doubt on previous beliefs you analyze by checking the evidence and the reasoning on which doubt is cast, and any objections to the new theory you investigate ...
142. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the midwinter sunrise causes a shaft of light to penetrate to the end. Meaden suggests this was a symbolic penetration of the seminal light of the Sun into the Earth mother's womb, and the linked left and right handed spirals on the kerbstone are therefore a symbol of the sacred marriage, a symbol as instantly recognisable to megalithic peoples as the cross is to Christians today. We now turned to meteorology, Dr Meaden's specialist subject. He suggested that archaeologists should pay more attention to the weather in ancient times as all natural phenomenon associated with it would have been seen as sacred. Dr Meaden's explanation for the later importance of a masculine deity was as a storm god and the associated ...

... raised up on high out of the fire thereof .. ." . It is a prayer that the flame may give eternal life to Osiris Auf-ankh. Further on, it is clear that the god Amen, the divine Bull-Scarab, is being addressed, the lord of the divine utchats. The resemblance to the story of Moses and the crossing of the Red Sea, Exodus XIV:21 ff., is striking. Moses stretched out his hand, and the waters were divided, so that the Israelites could cross. One of the plagues of Egypt mentioned in Exodus was river-water running red with blood. Cicero mentions a shower of bloody rain and rivers running red (De ...
144. Magnetism and Axial Tilts [Books] [de Grazia books]
... ) by a means not dependent upon a star. And, if this technique existed, the alternative presents itself that the object defining true north itself moved on occasion. A second study by Aveni leads us also to believe that astronomical settings have altered in proto-historical times. He and his associates traced and surveyed the orientations of "The Peaked Cross Symbol in Ancient Mesoamerica" in many places . These peaked crosses are not monuments of the highest level, but remind us in some ways of the frequent crude religious sculptures that are to be found at crossways in many places on Earth, dating up even to the present day. The cross represents the application of the ...

... by the repelled lines of force appears cruciform. This configuration is a variation of the trism. Here two forces seem to oppose each other, their interaction inspiring myth. At the end of the opus, a cruciform peace' between the opposites appears, as some attractive force like gravity balances the magnetic forces. This could be the celestial cross appearing at Jesus' crucifixion and repeated in medieval annals. 2. Not Your Garden Variety - the Spatter' Fig. 11 Spatters Fig. 12 Rhodes plate Certain floral and astral patterns appear in ancient art world wide, either as little asterisks, or evolving into stranger looking blossoms that art historians classify as dot rosettes, rosettes and ...
146. Pyramids of Tucume, The quest for Peru's forgotten city, by Thor Heyerdahl, Daniel H. Sandweiss and Alfredo Narvaez [Journals] [SIS Review]
... an image of a ceremonial paddle, such as those carried by Easter Island chiefs. Not all traditions were lost when the society at Tucume collapsed after the advent of the Spaniards. Attending a festival where Virgins' were carried, Heyerdahl accidentally saw what was hidden beneath the veil of one. It was an old tree trunk with a crooked cross formed by two natural branches, looking more like a trident than a true cross. Images like this were revered everywhere, even in a school yard where dedicatory offerings were made. It seems that archaeological digs can often benefit by attention to local traditions in a search for the history of a region, especially in relatively undeveloped areas such ...
147. Habiru and Hebrew [Journals] [SIS Review]
... ]. I Samuel 1:36 explains that when the Israelites were hard pressed by the Philistines people took refuge wherever they might; v. 7 adds And some of the Hebrews went over Jordan to the land of Gad and Gilead... '  or, in a second version of the translation, Some of them crossed the Jordan into the district of Gad and Gilead... ' . [Emphases added where the translation differs.] Citing Baldwin, Van der Veen wishes to keep the Hebrews' version and also to conclude that a distinction is intended between Israelites and Hebrews. He should surely consider verses 3 and 4 in his ...
... of what remains of the core apex, which is situated roughly where the meridian of Greenwich intersects the equator. It has been found that the equatorial section of the Earth is not a circle but is slightly elliptical, the difference between the major and minor axes being about 1600 feet. However, it is much more probable that the equatorial cross section of the Earth is really that of an ovoid' such as we have described, with its pointed end situated as mentioned in the preceding paragraph. But then, as the terrestrial hump' has only been determined by pendulum observations, since it is far too minute to measure, it is still more likely that the equatorial cross ...
149. Mythic Mountains by Isaac Vail [Books]
... and deaths, as the canopy revolved, and at the same time journey slowly through an innumerable round of austerities toward the pole. After reaching certain latitudes in the northern heavens all forms ceased to set and rise; ceased to die and be born again. That is, they entered immortality, and eventually reaching the river of Paradise they crossed it into the realm of light, entered Nirvana which was infinity (infinite space or uppermost heaven) or extinction. In Egypt and India this conception was carried out completely. The land of light was the land of extinction, or death, and of eternal life. Thus in Egypt when the Paradise chief conferred eternal life on the ...
150. Response to Critique by Leroy Ellenberger [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... the fateful time. Fourthly, we note that the Venusian perihelion (its closest position in orbit to the Sun) is at the 130 degree celestial longitude. This is according to a system of longitudes astronomers have adopted, with Degree No. 1 falling on September 21, the first day of fall, the autumnal equinox. The Earth crosses this longitude on February 1 or 2. This is the longitude position on the Venusian orbit where Mars made its last exit from Venusian orbit space, according to our catastrophic model, Figure 1. There could have been a near collision if Venus were in the neighborhood on or about February 1, 705 B.C . We calculate ...
