... From: Moons, Myths and Man by H. S. Bellamy CD Rom Home Last | Contents | Next 7 Dragon-Slayers One of the most striking features, common to every dragon myth, is the fact that none of these monsters may continue its ravages with impunity for any length of time. Every dragon has George. And the fight of the hero of light with the terror of ancient night is the glorious theme of many eternal tales. The Indians and Iranians have many myths in common, a reminder of a prehistoric time when the tribes were much more closely united than by mere ties of language. One of the most striking is that which describes the fight of ...

... ; Micawbers, Pickwicks, and Pecksniffs in every great city. There is nothing in the mind of man that has not pre-existed in nature. Can we imagine a person, who never saw or heard of an elephant, drawing a picture of such a two tailed creature? It was thought at one time that man had made the flying dragon out of his own imagination; but we Dow know that the image of the pterodactyl had simply descended from generation to generation. Sindbad's great bird, the Roc was considered a flight of the Oriental fancy, until science revealed the bones of the dianornis. All the winged beasts breathing fire are simply a recollection of the comet. In ...

... , the three were as one, the trinity in unity." Speaking of her power, the Moon called herself repeatedly, "The Light which Shineth in the Darkness," the "Woman Light." Hence it became the accepted symbol of all the Virgin-Mother goddesses. In all pagan theogonies the Moon was always intimately connected with the dragon, her eternal enemy. There was nothing bewildering to the ancients in their early symbols. They represented one thing or condition by another, and the invisible by a corresponding type of power. Elementary types were of no sex. This was thoroughly understood by the ancients, consequently in some languages the Sun was made feminine and the Moon ...

... of gas, dust, and stone. On at least two occasions, the earth passed close enough to the Venus "comet" to be disturbed in its motions, and a rain of celestial debris descended on our planet. This celestial conflagration, Velikovsky claimed, entered global mythology as the attack upon the world by a cosmic serpent or dragon (and/or overwhelming wars of the gods). The Velikovsky controversy is important today for more than one reason. To begin with, it offers an excellent study in scientific intolerance. Even as Worlds in Collision topped the national bestseller list, the scientific elite, led by the respected astronomer Harlow Shapley, threatened a boycott of ...

... . The Lambton Worm and other Northumbrian Legends by Paul Screeton Paul Screeton has divided his book into three parts: the first part deals with the legends themselves, the second part deals with the sites of the legends and the third part consists of various attempts to explain the origin of the legends. Part I notes the connection between worms and dragons in folklore through the German language in which der wurm' = the dragon' and also through the Norse word for dragon which is Ormr' from which our word for the common earth worm probably derives. This is followed by a wealth of interesting information on the subject of worms and dragons contained in legendary accounts from the Northumbrian area ...

Are there any questions or anything? Moderator: We have a number of them. Charles Ginenthal? Ginenthal: I'm interested in the dragon motif. That is, the dragon motif and its identification with Venus. What have you found about that? Miller: Again, you know, I have to be careful here too. I don't want to overstate anything, so much as I can help it. But I have found that this is one of the biggest problems ...

... the representations where the central rod is missing. Medieval European tradition is brimming with images of intertwining serpents. The symbol of the entwined worms or serpents was common in Gnosticism. [3 ] A decoration in the 10th century High Cross Monasterboice from County Louth, Ireland, shows a hand placed within a set of concentric rings surmounting two intertwining dragons making three loops between which are placed three heads. [4 ] As in the case of the Sumerian cylinder seals, the number of loops amounts once more to three and the depiction of three heads within these loops forges a connection with the world axis in its aspect as a string of pearls, often represented as superimposed heads or ...

... meterorites, but lightning may have become associated with them. Many meteorite falls are associated with thunderous, or explosive sounds and these are sometimes loud enough to vibrate, shake, or even damage buildings. The thunder claps' are, in effect, sonic booms. He elaborates by pointing out that both lightning and meteorites have been associated with dragons in the sky. This point was made in a challenge to Mike Baillie [7 ] and his assumption that dragons defined comets. Lightning and meteors appear in 14th century AD Welsh texts as draig, or dragwn, while the firedrake, dragon and drakes are used in written English of the same period. McBeath points out that oral ...

... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:1 (May 2000) Home | Issue Contents Dragons in the Sky CCNet, 15 March 2000 From (Neil Bone) While much is made in many quarters of fireballs described as drakes' or dragons, in some Chinese records, it might be equally possible that these references are also to auroral displays. The twisting, serpentine form of an auroral rayed band, for example, might as easily be the source of the cited reports here. Some years ago - I think it was 1981 - there was even the suggestion in New Scientist that St George's dragon was actually an aurora. ...
