191. Darkness and the Deep [Journals] [Aeon]
... his alter-ego. "Since you claim you are stronger than I am," Num said to Nga, "organize the earth." The sky, however, was already in existence and, as elsewhere, so was the primordial ocean. (96) As the ancestors of the North American Indians are said to have done, we cross the Bering Strait and, among the Inuit of Alaska, we also find a creation myth that presupposes the pre-existence of a watery abyss. (97) Further South, the Indians of British Columbia assert that, "Very dark, damp, and chaotic was the world in the beginning" and that they, i.e . ...
192. Nemesis for Evolutionary Gradualism? [Books]
... of the Galaxy. Rampino and Stothers proposed that the passage of the Solar System through or near the gas and dust clouds concentrated towards the galactic plane disrupted the Solar System's cometary system, resulting in collisions with the Earth. (K . A. Innanen and colleagues [256,257] had previously pointed out the coincidence of galactic plane crossings and the boundaries between geological periods.) The fact that the interstellar clouds are not all found exactly on the mid-plane of the Galaxy would explain why not all extinctions seemed to have occurred precisely on schedule, the standard deviation of each individual episode being 9 Myr . This analysis of the periodicities was generally in accord with ...
193. Fomenko and English History [Journals] [SIS Review]
... our reign' . That corresponds to AD 1284, as may be seen by reference to another of his Statutes, that of Gloucester, which begins, The year of grace 1278 and the 6th of the reign of king Edward, son of king Henry... ' . Figure 3. The Eleanor Cross at Geddington, Northamptonshire, believed to have been built by Edward I, in memory of his queen. According to Fomenko and Nosovskij, Edward I was an alter ego of Manuel II of Byzantium. (Photo: T. Palmer) Another building project associated with Edward I was the construction of 12 monumental crosses to mark the route ...
... was corroborated by the results of excavations of Jericho, where in the walls of the ancient city were found indications of earthquake and signs of fire, which the excavator referred to -1407 or thereabouts- the time of the el-Amarna correspondence.14 This earthquake might have been the cause of the fall of the walls of Jericho when the Israelites, after crossing the Jordan, besieged the city. 12: Scholars writing in English have no unified method of transliterating the guttural letters in Semitic Languages. The Cambridge Ancient History acknowledges the inconsistency, in some cases following the established spelling of names in English, in others preferring the closest phonetic equivalents. 13: Eduard Meyer, Geschichte des Alterturns, ...
195. Astronomy and Chronology [Journals] [Pensee]
... that permitted this conclusion? Neither Herodotus, nor Thucydides, nor any other classical author-historian tells anything of Ramses III, or, at least, such a reference is not known to exist. The bas-reliefs of Medinet Habu, a very impressive group of battle scenes, were of course not unnoticed- and since antiquity every inquisitive traveller to Thebes who crossed the Nile to look at the Colossi of Memnon (statues of Amenhotep III), or the mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut at Deir el Bahari, or Ramesseum, the mortuary Temple of Ramses II and the colossus of that king, broken, lying in the dust, visited also the temple of Medinet Habu. The king who built ...
196. Prelude to Creation [Journals] [Aeon]
... proto-Saturn's spiraling orbit around the "approaching" Sun's extended axis, which makes it very difficult for those who would want to plot proto-Saturn's approach toward the Sun. It can also be seen that the capture of a body encased within a plasmasphere by another like-body is not a simple procedure.  As Thornhill realized: "Subsequent early crossings of the solar wind plasma sheet would induce additional episodes of extraordinary electrical activity until the electrical differences were reduced. The passage of proto-Saturn...across the heliopause boundary would not have been a once-only event, since the heliopause is not a stationary interface. Just as spacecraft passing behind Jupiter or Saturn today may repeatedly cross the magnetotail ...
197. Exodus Or Exile. Ch. 7. (Ramses II and his Time) [Velikovsky]
... he [the chief of Libya] uttered, have come to naught," but the war was not over when these memoirs were cut in stone. Every inscription that contains any historical material from the time of Merneptah is concerned with the Libyan campaign. In his fifth year he was able to block the route of the Libyans who had crossed the border, and even to put the Libyan advance guard to rout; still this victory was achieved in a defensive war. The Cairo column says in the name of a god: "I cause that thou cut down the chiefs of Libya whose invasion thou hast turned back."5 In the usual bombastic style the Athribis stele6 ...
198. Cataclysms of the Earth [Books]
... Pre-Historic Forest Floors The Creation of the Oceans A Cosmic Cycle in Time Introduction WE are all aware that our earth is constantly changing. By the roadside or in the mountains we notice the layers of rocks, or strata, displaced from their original horizontal plane, and recognize the evidence of the shifting of the earth's so-called crust. In the cross sections of canyons we note the succession of layers-the permanent markings made by rock formation in earlier epochs. We uncover animal and plant fossils and by their depth and placement can construct a chronology of prehistoric life. The movement of the rivers carving out new beds and the pounding of the oceans on their shores all remind us of the endless ...
... to these vitrified forts, built sometimes on artificial hills, we are reminded again of the Cimmerians, celebrated, according to Herodotus, for their castles, the Cimmerian Bosporus, and the river Eridanus in their country. Then, on the Isle of Lewis, Outer Hebrides, is the astronomical temple of Callernish, in the shape of a cross, built of 48 upright stones, a sunk altar chamber in the form of a cross, and the point of intersection enclosed within a circle. The long shaft, pointing north, is 392 feet in length, the cross-shaft is 141 feet, and the diameter of the circle at the inter-section 42 feet, a complete giant Celtic ...
200. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... World markings on the Comalcalco bricks were transmitted from Southeast Asia via the Pacific and suggests that the shorter, more direct, trans-Atlantic route offers a much simpler solution to the problem. However, firstly, the simplest solution is not necessarily the correct solution and the most direct route is not necessarily the route taken. In support of an Atlantic crossing Mr Porter states that the signs in my fig. 4 apparently show links to the Roman Empire. Of course, this is the first thing that occurred to many, including myself, who have become involved with study of the site. The problem with this conclusion is that, as stated in para. 2, p. 26 ...
