201. The Secret of Baalbek (Concluded) [Journals] [Kronos]
... Note: The image of the calf that was found could also have been a votive offering having nothing to do with the nature or character of the deity being worshipped.- DC The name Baal-Bek (Baal-Bi'qa) is sometimes transmitted by Arab authors as Baal bikra, or Baal of the Steer or Calf, which is the way of folk etymology to adapt the name to the form of the worship practiced in the temple. This, together with the finding of the images of the calf in the area of the temple, strengthens the impression that the god of Baalbek was a calf. __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ _ ...

202. Janus: Corrigenda et Addenda [Journals] [Aeon]
... a "god of beginnings" (17) and " essential role in the creation of the world." (18) As Janus Pater, he was revered as the father of the gods (19) and god of gods. (20) THE NAME JANUS According to Cook, the "most probable etymology" of the name Janus is derived from a series of related names. Thus he tells us that: "Corresponding with the series Diviana Diana Iana we have the series Divianus Dianus Ianus. Ianus, therefore, can be legitimately connected with dius (for diuios), a word familiar to us in the phrase sub dio, under ...

203. A Holographic World [Journals] [Kronos]
... and Shufflebrain (Boston, 1981). Pietsch's research with salamanders shows that parts of a brain may be shuffled without scrambling the meaning of the information stored. According to him, the basic assertion in hologramic theory "is that the brain stores the mind as codes of wave phase". Pietsch prefers "hologramic" over holographic" on etymological grounds. Rupert Sheldrake, "A New Science of Life", New Scientist (18 June 1981), pp. 766-68; reprinted in Science Digest (Oct. 81), pp. 54-57. See also Aug. 3, 81 Brain/Mind Bulletin (P . O.

... their peculiar share of the sacrifice." (93) Who or what, then, is Rudra? As the red boar of heaven, Rudra is to be identified with the planet Mars. His very name reflects his color- unique among the planets and relatively rare among prominent celestial bodies- the most likely etymology tracing it to an ancient word for "red" or "ruddy". (94) As I have documented elsewhere, numerous ancient gods identified with Mars were named with a word signifying "red". Here the Celtic war-god Rudiobus offers a case in point, identified by the ancients with the Latin god Mars and sharing a ...

... but its meaning remains uncertain. ". .. there are linguistic reasons for believing that it cannot be derived from Hütte, hut, or Hut, hat. The most likely, but still unprovable, derivation is from Heide, heath, with its derivative Heidjer, heathman, heathen, hence pagan." (41) Whether the etymology of the name is correct or not, Hitler fully lived up to his name's potential meaning. For he and his court temporarily restored pagan aspects of Antiquity and the Medieval period in the heart of a twentieth century Europe soon to be poised on the threshold of the Atomic Age. (42) Mussolini did the same thing for Fascist ...

... the number 40 in the Bible that it has some special significance which makes its literal acceptance for chronological purposes highly suspect, and I find it extremely interesting that it should have a special name in some languages, and further, that this name should have such a significant root as S-R in these two examples. Can any members shed some etymological light on this problem; and just what was so special about 40?

207. The Etruscans and their Language [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... to c.860 BC. According to Thucydides, some Trojans migrated as far as Sicily. 4. From early times the Etruscans venerated the Trojan Aeneas as their ancestor. According to one Greek authority, Aeneas himself was an Etruscan. Also compatible is the Roman tradition concerning the first king of Rome. 5. There may be an etymological connection. The Hittites apparently knew Troy by the name Taruisa', while the Egyptians, it would appear from an inscription of c.880 BC, knew its people by the name Tursa'. When Dorian Greeks came into contact with the Etruscans, conversely, they called them Tursenoi', adopting the name presumably in ignorance of ...

... and aimed at Baldr as directed by Loki. The dart went straight through him and he fell dead to the ground. This was the greatest misfortune ever to befall gods and men." (85) If we are to judge by the popularity of his name, Hoder was worshipped by various Teutonic peoples. As Grimm observed, the etymology of the god's name marks him as a warrior par excellence, being related to various words signifying belli impetus and fervor: "In these words, except where the meaning is merely intensified, the prevailing idea is plainly that of battle and strife, and the god or hero must have been thought of and honored as a warrior. ...

209. Comets and the Bronze Age Collapse [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... population of Earth-orbit-crossing objects greater than half a kilometre in diameter is over 2,000 and its members are from various sources. Obviously our planet gets hit fairly often. What the recent large comet did was increase the likelihood of collision and establish a visible cause/effect relationship in the minds of our ancestors. The association of disaster (etymologically, dis - evil; aster - star) with comets eventually became generalized beyond direct causal links, giving science oriented investigators reason to classify this ubiquitous notion as mere superstition. Scientific efforts to understand the past were thus rendered purblind to a highly influential natural phenomenon. It is technically feasible to prevent future impacts by altering the orbits of ...
