211. The Paleo-Saturnian System [Journals] [Aeon]
... ancients, including Plato, as well as modern "primit-ive" tribes, that the first men were circular or spherical in shape.  Meanwhile, that Eve- in Hebrew Haw-wa/Havvah- stood for the planet Venus there seems to be little doubt. For instance, it has long been known that "among the various etymologies of the word Eve...there is one, according to which it means serpent'."  This accords well with various Venerian goddesses who were also described as having had the form of a serpent- such as Inanna and Ishtar- a reference to the former cometary form of the planet.  ...
212. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... origins of Geoffrey of Monmouth and French being the court language of the Normans and the Franks. In Welsh, Guinevere = Gwenhwyfar, which has the meaning of white phantom or white lady, a goddess image (Geoffrey Ashe, Mythology of the British Isles, p. 206). She was the wife and consort of Arthur, whose etymology is not absolute. According to Sir John Rhys (The Arthurian Legend, Oxford, 1890), the root ar has the meaning of harnesser', to bind and join together (as a bard strings words together) or to plough (make a furrow), a form of action widely attributed to the Irish god, the ...
213. Child of Saturn (Part IV) [Journals] [Kronos]
... the Assyro-Babylonians who held the theological view that Ishtar, who was their Venus, was the goddess of the fertilizing waters.(21) We can therefore accept this identification of the Bundahish with impunity. Actually, the equation of Anaitis with Venus is well known and has been recognized for some time.(22) Besides which, the etymological and historical roots of this goddess also point unmistakably to Venus. In fact, let us, at this point, ask: Whence came this planetary deity whose idolatrous character- together with that of Mithra- was so foreign to the teachings of Zarathustra, as expounded in the Avesta and the later Bundahish? Strabo referred to Anahita by ...
214. Puritanism, Misogyny, and Female Sexuality [Journals] [Aeon]
... Version].  From The Encyclopedia of the Jewish Religion (Werblowsky & Wigoder, 1966): "TOPHETH: High Places dedicated to the rites of MOLOCH in the valley of Hinnom, west of the walls of Jerusalem (Jer. 7:31-32; II Kings 23:10). Its exact location as well as etymology is uncertain. The Moloch rites included the sacrifice and burning of children, and hence the name T. came to mean a place of horror and abomination. In his drive against idolatry Josiah defiled the T., but it was revived and continued until the Babylonian Exile. In later Hebrew literature the word T. (and also ...
... , indeed, as the original god of heaven in the past. He stands in an Orphic hymn [n9 83.7 (ed. Quandt, p. 55): terma philion gaies, arche polou.] as "beloved end of the earth, ruler of the pole," and in that famous ancient lexicon, the Etymologicum magnum, his name is seen to derive from "heaven." Back to Part 6 / Go to Part 8 top ...
216. The Hamon-Gabriel-Mars Connection (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... ?"(7 ) Aside from the fact that the Sanskrit word for the mount of a god is vahana (i .e ., vahana, not vahaman, as it appears three times in Cardona's reply), Brahma's vahana is not the peacock at all but rather the bird known in Sanskrit as the hamsa. This word is etymologically identical with Latin anser, German Gans, and English gander, and is usually tranlated into English as gander or swan. It is sometimes also rendered as duck and even (more rarely and, I believe, somewhat dubiously) as flamingo - but never as peacock, as far as I know.(8 ) Nor have I ...
217. The Sacred Theory of the Earth by Dr. Thomas Burnet [Books]
... , as St. Justin tells us, (1 )( 1 . De Civ. Dei, lib. 6: Dion, Halic. 4nt. Rom, lib. 4.) a multitude of volumes, and of various sorts, and I had rather retrieve his works than the works of any other Roman author; not his etymologies and criticisms, where we see nothing admirable, but his Theologia Pbysica, and his Antiquitates; which in all probability would have given us more light into remote times, and the natuial history of the past World, than all the Latin Authors besides have done. He has left the foremention'd distinction of three periods of time; he ...
218. Mother Goddess and Warrior-Hero (Part One) [Journals] [Aeon]
... seen in the fact that the same word ren means "to nurse." (The mother goddess is the nurse of both the warrior-hero and the rejuvenated creator-king.) Indeed, from this very root is derived the name of the goddess Rennit, called by Budge "the World Nurse-mother goddess." (70) Looking at the same etymology from a different angle, it is also clear that the sounds or words gathered into the all-encompassing Name mean the ejected "limbs" gathered into an external body. Hence the plural renu (" names"), in Chapter 17 of the Book of the Dead, is used simultaneously for the creator's limbs and the assembly of gods ...
219. The el-Amarna Letters and the New Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Egyptian commissioner]."  Here, too is a test for our hypothesis, for now we have to show that Saul was associated with the activities of habiru' type groups, possibly mercenaries , and that his son was their companion. We have noted previously that the conventional equation of habiru = Hebrews is etymologically sound, so one might suggest Saul's leadership of the Hebrews is the link we seek. Indeed, the word Hebrew(s ) ' appears with surprising frequency in the first book of Samuel which ends with Saul's death; but then curiously the term is not used again throughout the later books of the Old Testament - in other words ...

The bright star in that constellation, is the most brilliant of all the stars or fires in the zodiac, it was the FATHER FIRE, i. e., it was AB-IR, and this etymology is confirmed by the Arabic name of that bright star which is Al-de- bir-AN, 1. e., the-great-father of fires."3 EGYPTIAN PLANISPHERE OF ZODIACAL AND NORTHERN SIGNS (According to Kircher.)
