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. [59] 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'." [60] 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.

... 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 ...

... Version]. [36] 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 ...

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."

... ?"(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 ...

He has left the foremention'd distinction of three periods of time; he ...

... 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 ...

... Egyptian commissioner]." [41] 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 [42], 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 ...
