Velikovsky has called our attention to ancient records of a supposed battle which took place in the heavens during the middle of the second millennium B.C .

Velikovsky argues impressively that the basis for such accounts is the close approach of Venus to the earth about ...

5. Dragons and Serpents (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... From: Moons, Myths and Man by H. S. Bellamy CD Rom Home Last | Contents | Next 6 Dragons and Serpents The figure of the dragon or serpent is peculiar to mythology, it is probably the most puzzling of all the creatures with which this science has to deal. The serpent or dragon myths are not confined to any people, nor to any clime. Everywhere the creature would seem to be indigenous. It is familiar in north and south, in east and west, and everywhere its distinct reptilian me is emphatically stressed. This has been taken as the chief evidence that all dragon myths came from some common original story of remote antiquity. In ...

During this period every tribal community had, as it were, its own Homer who, reciting from an iron-clad memory, related the trials and tribulations of the favorite hero, replete with dragon-combats and the rescue of maidens in distress. Held in the highest esteem, these ancient bards were deemed to be mortal repositories of sacred knowledge and hence their tales constitute an enduring record of mankind's earliest thoughts and concerns.

In presenting his evidence, Sutherland relied exclusively on the dragon form ...

... "God created great whales", I do not look to the evidence of Biblical revelation to convince me that such was a fact, but I look to the fact that the sentence would never have been inscribed if some such monsters were not known to exist. It makes no difference whether future translators render Tannin "whales, titans, dragons, or fishes". Any one of which would express the meaning. Men saw something they called "Tannin," and the fact they said so is the testimony I am after, whether inspired or uninspired. If I am told that infant man lived "naked" in Eden, I do not need the evidence of Biblical ...
