61. The Impossible Dinosaurs [Articles]
... be one of the largest sauropods, to welterweight or at most middleweight status. Fossil finds dating from the 1970's dwarf him. The Avon field Guide to Dinosaurs shows a brachiosaur (larger than a brontosaur), a supersaur, and an ultrasaur juxtaposed, and the ultrasaur dwarfs the others. Christopher McGowan's "Dinosaurs, Spitfires, & Sea Dragons", Harvard, 1991 cites a 180 ton weight estimate for the ultrasaur (page 118), and (page 104) describes the volume-based methods of estimating dinosaur weights. McGowan is Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology at the Royal Ontario Museum. This same look requires that dinosaur lifting requirements be compared to human lifting capabilities. One objection which ...
62. The Cosmic Mountain [Books]
... one foot has out-stripped them that have two," states the Rig Veda. (240) The statement derives meaning from the supremacy of the one-legged polar god, who, while standing fixed at the cosmic centre yet moved the turning heavens. The great god's single "leg" means the world mountain. (241) The Serpent/Dragon The serpent fills more than one role in the myths of beginnings. While the circular serpent denotes the Saturnian enclosure, there is also a masculine serpent who serves as the foundation or pillar. A comparison of global traditions indicates that while many legends locate the celestial "earth" on the cosmic mountain, this enclosure may also appear as ...

... a deposit of rich magnetite ore, littered over a strip 40 miles long by 9 miles wide."  As with iron, so with other metals: many legends have them falling from heaven. The Chinese sky dragon's "breath descends as a rain of water or of fire. Gold is the congealed breath of a White Dragon, but a Purple Dragon's spittle turns into balls of crystal; glass is regarded as solidified dragon's breath." (The tektite allusion is plain). "The dragons of mythology are often described (among the Teutons, for example) as guardians of hoards and givers of wealth." The dragons are wise in metallurgy [15 ...
... , and he became corresponding male; and thus all creatures, down to the minutest insects, were created Something similar to this occurs in the Orphic Theogeny. Phanes or Eriapaeus corresponds to the Hindu Brahma. "The theologists," says Proclus, "place him the heads of a ram, a bull, a lion, and a dragon and assign him both the male and female sex. Female and Father is the mighty God Ericapaeus. The Egyptian Phtha, fully corresponding, as will hereafter be seen, both with Phnes and Brahrna, and like them breaking from the mundane egg, the demi-urgus, creator of all visible thing, was of double sex. In the ...
65. Thoth Vol IV, No 4: Feb 29, 2000 [Journals] [Thoth]
... aspect of the story invariably merges with another: WARS OF THE GODS As a mythical archetype, the Doomsday catastrophe is not merely a terrestrial disturbance, it is the story of celestial upheaval. The gods themselves battle in the sky so violently as to rearrange the heavens. Their weapons include thunderbolts and stone, flaming "arrows", fire-breathing dragons, and all-consuming wind and flood. The tale is most familiar to us, perhaps, as the famous clash of the Titans, recounted by Hesiod and other Greek poets. This was the catastrophic aftermath of the Golden Age of Kronos, when "wide heaven was shaken and groaned, and high Olympos reeled from its foundation under the ...
66. Venus in Ancient Myth and Language: Part Two [Journals] [Aeon]
... of several lands compared the planet Venus to a witch. In ancient Babylon, for example, Venus was known as the Witch-star. (47) The ancient Norsemen likewise envisaged the planet Venus as a witch, calling it by the name of nahtfare (" night-rider"), a common name of witches. (48) Witches, Dragons, and Comets The archetypal image of the witch is that of an old crone flying through the night on her broom with disheveled hair, spreading evil throughout the land. Certainly it is difficult to reconcile this image with the current peaceful movements of the planet Venus. Throughout our investigation, however, we have been open to the possibility ...

68. Maya Cosmos: A Saturnian Interpretation (Part II) [Journals] [Aeon]
... electrical forces as the prime constituent energy behind the Universe, believes that sustained Birkeland currents, which naturally form a twisted rope-like structure due to their self-generated magnetic fields, can account for the many myths of serpentine sky objects. [7 ] This sinuous structure and its antics led to all kinds of mythological beings generically termed "sky serpents and dragons" which are found in the belief systems of races scattered all over the ancient world. (It should be noted that, although Jueneman did not use the term "Birkeland" in his 1988 scenario, the presence of such phenomena was explicitly referred to in his discussion of the plasma pinch effect in an interplanetary electric current.) ...

70. The Celestial Clock [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... : SIS Internet Digest 2002:2 (Dec 2002) Home | Issue Contents The Celestial Clock www.celestialclock.com The Celestial Clock employs a unified theory of natural cyclicity, which reaches apocalyptic proportions in every 11,500 - 23,000 years. The book reveals the sacred symbology of the Seven Stars of Pleiades, serpents, dragons, scorpions, lamb and bull along with indisputable scientific proof that the Mayan Calendar is based on the 23,000 year ice volume collapse cycles recently discovered in ocean sedimentation and ice core drill down studies from Greenland and Antarctica. It is the dominant cycle of the "100,000" year Milankovitch ice age theory. The ancient ...
