91. Astral Kingship [Aeon Journal $]
... to have been a phenomenon entirely distinct from, even though closely related to, the Phoenix. The Benu bird, or Phoenix, epitomizes light; and we may justifiably conclude that the simultaneous appearance and interchangeability of light and Benben stone-- which present themselves somewhat as a unity-- signifies a stupendous cosmic event which resulted in the expulsion of considerable physical matter, the emanation of great light, and the discharge of abundant water. We are, in fact, suggesting that the Atum-Re myth is the legacy of the Saturnian Deluge proposed by Velikovsky. (42) Helios and Heliopolis Heliopolis was itself the Primeval Mound, the first part of the land world to appear from the depths of the waters and the dwelling place of the High God as light...Since the waters were in absolute darkness the emergence of God [Atum meant the coming of light, the first morning. (43) A causal relation between cosmic change and the appearance of new land masses is found in Polynesian mythology where it is told that in "the fishing up of the ...
92. New Scenarios for Solar System Evolution [SIS Internet Digest $]
... (the big bang scenario) and in possible alternative versions. The session on geology discusses a number of questions associated with the crucial and difficult problem of accurately dating events in the far past but more importantly for the consequences on the dating of the Homo Sapiens history on the Earth (radiocarbon, dendrochronological and radiometrical dating techniques). The problem of climatic variations and glaciations in the late pleistocene and holocene, so important to understand the Homo Sapiens past, is discussed. Two particular topics that have always fascinated man, namely the deluge traditions and the antiquity of the great Giza Sphynx, are discussed from the geologist point of view. The session on anthropology reviews work done by genetists and linguists, that shows a tree of evolution of human presence in the world from a very likely unique original source. Evidence of contacts before Columbus between America and Europe will be discussed. The hypothesis of civilization on Earth well before the third millennium will also be considered. A non standard interpretation will be given of who were the Nephilim and the Annunaki in the biblical and ...
93. Catastrophes: the Diluvial Evidence [SIS C&C Review $]
... The Ancient World According to the book of Genesis, God breathed life into Adam and Eve, the first man and woman, on the sixth day of Creation. Just nine generations later, corruption had become so widespread that God brought about the Flood, when 'the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days', and 'all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered'. However, Noah, who was an exception to the general rule of wickedness, had been warned about the coming deluge. This enabled his family to build a large boat, the Ark, to sail on the waters. Hence they survived the Flood, the only humans to do so [1. The story of Noah is just one of over 500 flood myths from around the world, many of which similarly involve a man and a woman escaping by boat. In the Babylonian epic of Gilgamesh, the hero, Uta-Napishtim, was warned by Ea, God of the Waters, about the coming deluge. Others include a Greek myth, ...
94. THE LATELY TORTURED EARTH: PART II: EXOTERRESTRIAL DROPS: 10.Metals, Salt and Oil [Quantavolution Website]
... using a jagged-edged sickle of flint. If any amount of terrestrial iron had been present on the surface and outcroppings, why would it not have been employed? Gold, silver, copper, tin and lead were mined and used. Mankind was ready to work and even to melt and purify iron, it seems, long before it was available. If only in order to supply the type of hypothesis that may lead usefully to historical research on the subject, I would suggest that most metals occurred around the period of the great Deluge and in the transition from Saturn to Jupiter worship, about 4200 B. C., and may be connected to a cosmic explosion that I have in Chaos and Creation assigned to a planet with the legendary traits of Apollo. It is noteworthy that the ancient metal mines of Attica had two favorite names, Artemisiakon and Hermaikon, both siblings of Apollo [20. John Saul drew circles corresponding to rounded features, possibly ancient exploded craters, on a topographic map of a portion of Arizona. He independently marked the location of ...

... liquid form, but it will turn into frost at temperatures of -50 degrees F. and colder. This forms an ice cap at the north pole during Mars' northern winter, producing some moraines or laminations whicht remain after the carbon dioxide ice melts. There are as many as 20 or 30 plates or laminations in the north polar region, indicating that the pole has wandered by as much as 10 or 20 degrees. 32 Mars, incidentally, also has dried-up river beds, which suggest it has also had some sort of deluge, perhaps an interplanetary dumping of ice, or an ice age which melted subsequently into rivers. The dry beds also suggest that Mars should be kept in the cosmic scenario as we try to understand the Earth's deluge, which might have occurred as recently as 2478 B.C., l08 years. 9. Spin Axis Precession III. Mars has a spin axis tilt of 24 degrees and the Earth's is 23 degrees. A uniformitarian astronomer will judge this to be an enigmatic, mysterious coincidence. A catastrophist astronomer might suppose it is ...

... gallery don't have their acts together, as far as I can tell. But then, what else is new? After I sent you the sheet showing titles for three Scientific American articles I thought you'd catch on that Runcorn's lunar magnetism model was the subject of the 12/87 one and add that citation in my piece to the one for the 1982 New Scientist, the one that Salkeld couldn't get hold of in time to discuss it. Yeah, I bet. C. Leroy Ellenberger, St. Louis, USA Noah's Deluge: Evidence in Australia? Dear Sir, As pointed out by Dr Velikovsky in Earth in Upheaval, p. 182, it was Sir Charles Lyell who first divided up the Tertiary Period (popularly known as the Age of Mammals) and spread it across millions of years. "Lyell first divided the Tertiary into Eocene, Miocene and Pliocene on the basis of percentage of living species represented in each series, there being very few in the earliest and a very large percentage in the latest series. Later the Oligocene was added ...

... waters from the Earth and ancient man should have been aware of this, if not from observing the column itself, then at least from observing what happened when the column was severed. CARDONA:... among the Australian Aborigines, the great python is the most impressive representative of the polar column. It is therefore significant that this python is not only believed to tower up to the level of the clouds, but that he also 'brings about rain and flood.' The Efe pygmies of the Ituri forest tell of a deluge of water which gushed forth as a mighty river when their version of the Cosmic Tree, which was the polar column, was felled. Similarly, the Arawak Indians of the Guinas tell of a wondrous tree which Sigu cut down. From its stump, water gushed out in such quantity as to cause a deluge. This tale is also found among the traditions of the Cuna, who tell of their mischief-maker, the Tapir, chopping down the Saltwater Tree from which salt water gushed out to form the oceans of the world ...
98. The Races Of Homo Sapiens [Kronos $]
... almost certainly the route followed by the "first Americans". The matter and timing of the "ice age" constitute another question. The absolute time of the crossing is for present purposes of little or no consequence, but a chronological benchmark becomes relevant to the actual means by which this bridge was inundated. Did it really result from an ages long polar melt, or is there perhaps another explanation? 3. Separation Ancient records from around the world attest to the near-total destruction of mankind in the distant past by a world-wide deluge. Preserved in these accounts are memories of a pre-deluge "Golden Age", a time when much of the world was like a garden. Climates, seasons, and weather had little variability. Man was one with nature and lived on the fruit of the land with the expenditure of little or no effort. Then came the Flood. Conditions became harsh. The antediluvian world became mankind's paradise lost. The Amerindians have their own recollections of this catastrophe, attributing it to their own gods. Diffusion of Old World memories is ...
99. Return to the Paelo-Saturnian Ssystem (Forum) [Aeon Journal $]
... break-up of the configuration)? How possible is it that the manna my forefathers ate in the desert was, as Velikovsky conjectured, a carbohydrate substance that precipitated from Venus' tail? Is it reasonable to speculate that the "mist [that ascended from the Earth and watered the entire face of the ground" [43 is based on a memory of the erection of the World Tree? How do Saturnists interpret this verse? How long did the destruction at the break-up of the configuration last? What did it involve besides a deluge? Which is understandable as a recollection of that event as described in the Torah, the exile from Eden or the Noachian Deluge? Again, Cardona writes that Saturn was a source of heat. Elsewhere, he wrote a whole article on the associations of Saturn with cold and snow. Is there a contradiction here? When was Saturn warm? When was it cold? How long did these periods last? What caused their onset and demise? Do they have anything to do with ice ages? Did I understand Cardona correctly ...
100. THE LATELY TORTURED EARTH: ATMOSPHERICS: 7.Fire and Ash [Quantavolution Website]
... On the other hand, the legendary coupling of fire and water is so flagrant as to pass notice, except when a progressive rabbi, for example, finds it easy to explain to his children why the heavens are of fire and water; ish-vamayin (fire and water) make up shamyin (heaven) because the ancients thought of sunlight as fire, and the rains, of course, come from the sky [3. G. R. Carli, writing in 1780, was already asserting that "the idea of a deluge of fire and a deluge of water was present among all peoples... This idea of fire and water... seems to recall tradition of an event of which the memory has endured. It is certainly odd that the indications manifested by a seaflood should have suggested the idea of a deluge of fire [4. Carli cites Clement of Alexandria for the observations that Stenelas, father of the king of the Ligurians, lived at the time of the fire of Phaeton and the flood of Deucalion. So fire and ...
