41. CLASHING MAGNETIC FIELDS [Journals] [Aeon]
... or two, but by at least 13 ancient calendars constructed by different peoples who left evidence in all other ways that they could indeed count quite accurately.(5 )( 6 ) 6. CO-PLANAR ORBITS. The orbits of Mars and the Earth were. as they are today, virtually co-planar. Being nearly co-planar, Mars' orbit crossed the Earth's orbit, not once, but twice. The two recorded crossing points, celestial intersections. were at the Earth's vernal equinox, (March 20-21) and at the October 24 orbital location of the Earth. Hebrew history denotes the March crossing as the "Passover" and Mars always passed over at night for the Eastern Hemisphere ...
42. Weinert's Hypothesis [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... east wind came up, billowing clouds of desert sand, which separated the two camps. The sea began to flow westward as the night wore on, as the apparition once more moved to the east and nearly overhead, and the winds increased in velocity, helping to part the sea and to dry the exposed bottom mud. The Israelites crossed over the exposed sea bottom, while the chariots of the pursuing Egyptians became mired in the mud. By morning, the apparition had all but disappeared in the west, the winds had subsided, and the sea once more returned to inundate its habitat. The ancient author of Exodus - not to mention many other authors of antiquity around ...
43. Solomon's Temple: An Astronomical Observatory [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... recognized in 1947 studies of northwest Semitic writings. There are also grammatical forms and expressions which have not turned up elsewhere in Phoenician inscriptions until the 20th century- some after 1950. To Gordon these matters, supported by recent scholarship, preclude the work of a clever forger a century ago who could anticipate these later archaeological discoveries. Frank Moore Cross, on the other hand, in no uncertain terms interpreted the Paraiba inscription as a blatant forgery. His main argument is that the forger, with access to 19th century charts showing the shapes of ancient Phoenician characters, used this material to prepare the text which was conveniently found in 1872. The debate between Cross and Gordon started in ...
44. The Dragon in China and Japan by M. W. VISSER [Books]
... yih, is the passage of WANG, FU above mentioned, says: As to his character as a being the dragon's mature is rough and fierce; yet he is afraid of iron and likes precious stones and k`ung-ts`ing,29 and is fond of roasted swallow flesh. Therefore persons who have eaten swallows must not, cross the sea. Further be (Wang Fit) says: `The kiao-lung30 is afraid of leaves of the Melia Azederach31 and of five-coloured silk thread. Therefore from the time of the Han dynasty (down to the present day) those who offered to K`uh Yuen32 took five-coloured silk thread and with this tied together the leaves of ...
... THE SYMBOLOGY OF THE CALENDAR These figures find numerical parallels in the 290 days of the year of Tiahuanaco and the 157 revolutions per annum of the Satellite, which have already been expressed in the 290 day symbols of the haloes and the 157 other symbols of the solar year part of the Calendar. These groupings are of the nature of valuable cross references to, and reiterated emphases of, important facts contained in the Calendar, supplied by the deviser of the Calendar to centre our attention on the most basic principle involved in the interpretation and evaluation of this marvellous masterpiece of chronography. The thirty Lateral Winged Figures carry 22 symbols each, 660 altogether. The most remarkable fact with regard ...
46. The End, Part 2 Mars Ch.9 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... happened in the past, they may happen again in the future, with perhaps a different - fatal- result. The earth has come in contact with other planets and comets. At present no planet has a course that endangers the earth, and only a few asteroids- mere rocks, a few kilometres in diameter- have orbits that cross the path of the earth. This was disco vered, to the amazement of scholars, only recently. But in the solar system there exists a possibility that at some date in the future a collision between two planets will occur, not a mere encounter between a planet and an asteroid. The orbit of Pluto, the farthest of ...
47. A Potential Historical Connection for the Death and Burial of Jacob in Genesis [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... to Abel Mizraim. That would have taken it through the territory of Edom, which was founded by Esau himself. In other words, the route appears to have been designed to involve the other branch of the family of Jacob. They probably participated in ceremonies at the Threshing Floor of Atad. The question then, is where did they cross the Jordan? The fords at Adam, modern Damiyeh, would have been the logical place, since the Threshing Floor of Atad probably was situated in the general vicinity of the Jabbok River. Crossing the Jordan there would have taken them up to the central ridge route that ran between Shechem and Jerusalem, and it probably was down this ...
48. The Milky Way [Journals] [Aeon]
... Way as a pathway always and everywhere has been current." (28) The Maya called the Milky Way Sak Be, "White Road" (29) or Xibal bey, "frightful road," a not-so-veiled reference to the band's connection to the underworld. (30) The African Masai knew it as "the road that crosses the sky." (31) The Pythagoreans held it to be the former path of the Sun. (32) The Aztecs knew it as the road along which Tezcatlipoca and Quetzalcoatl once walked. (33) A peculiar but widespread conception finds the celestial band being likened to a pathway for cattle. To the ancient Greeks, ...
49. A Fire not Blown [Books]
... , chapter I:9 : "In the same day also will I punish all those that leap on the threshold, which fill their masters' houses with violence and deceit" The arch of Janus marked the start of the Via Sacra at Rome, for processions to the Capitol. As he passed under the arch, a triumphing general crossed the limen, threshold, and by so doing became, to the spectators, divine. Q-CD vol. 13, A Fire Not Blown, Ch. 14: The Goddess Gaia 87 Limen, threshold, is an interesting word. In Greek it is a harbour. Harbour, port and threshold are all, in a sense, ...
50. The Ship of Heaven [Journals] [Aeon]
... From a number of indications it can be assumed that the band visually enclosing the orb of Saturn possessed a fluid appearance, giving rise to the idea of an encircling river or ocean. To an observer on Earth the real sense of revolution was provided not by the band per se, but by the crescent and the arms of the sun cross- both appearing to revolve around Saturn as the Earth turned on its axis. To those who viewed this spectacular daily cycle, it appeared as if the great ship sailed daily around an immense, fiery river or ocean. It is, to say the least, unlikely that anyone looking out at our rising and setting Sun would wish ...
