51. A Conversation with Barry Fell [Journals] [Horus]
... beads. Have you seen those Phoenician beads? Actually they were reported in North America as early as about 1820, I think. A man called Schoolcraft - he made a big report to the American congress, a very good report which was published in an enormous book. It included illustrations and descriptions of some of the yellow and black glass beads he found in the American Indian mounds. As far as we know the Phoenicians are responsible for them. You know, when Lewis and Clark crossed America in 1803 or thereabouts, you remember the story of how they had with them the famous Indian princess who was married to a good-for-nothing French Canadian trader - they didn't realize what ...
52. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... off one-third of the sunshine. As the sun passed north of the equator, the ring shadow was projected southwards, thereby chilling waters in the southern hemisphere. Wind patterns and ocean currents were upset. Gradually, the ring was swept away by the solar wind. Evidence for the first ring derives from the findings of B.P . Glass, a marine geologist, who noticed tektites in association with four important species of extinct one-celled plankton in sediment cores from the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico. O'Keefe also postulates the formation of a second ring only 700,000 years ago during the most recent of the Ice Ages. From a Velikovskian perspective, theories like these are of ...
53. Geomagnetic Reversals? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... we assume that the first half of the rotation occurs with uniform acceleration and the second half with a corresponding deceleration, then a simple calculation shows that the maximum acceleration at the Earth's surface is only about 1 cm s-2, i.e . 1/1000 of g'. This is hardly sufficient to spill one drop from a brim-full glass of water, but of course the effects on oceans and other large bodies of water, and on the air masses would be considerable. The land masses too, resting on their viscous support, would show marked stress, but the total effect need not be as devastating as one might first imagine. Indeed, a minor tilt of ...
54. The SIS Tenth Anniversary Tour of Egypt - Report [Journals] [SIS Review]
... our first visit to the CAIRO MUSEUM. Built some 85 years ago to house the richest collection of antiquities in the world, the Cairo Museum is like a time capsule of the colonial Empire Period. Wandering in and out of its hallowed rooms and corridors - hushed by the echoes of grey, plastered walls - the visitor comes across small glass display cases seemingly from a bygone age. No hi-tech darkened rooms with spotlit artifacts mounted on lush velvet to attract the gaze here. The simplicity of the Cairo Museum's display facilities seems somehow to give the priceless artifacts from Egypt's past an air of sadness which is perhaps more appropriate to the memory of a long-lost civilisation. On this occasion ...
55. The Revelation of John (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. (5 ) And out of the Throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne. . . . (6 ) And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. (7 ) And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast ...
56. Part II: The Comet [Ragnarok] [Books]
... did strike our fellow-planet,in the years 1767 and 1779 Lexell's comet passed though the midst of Jupiter's satellites, and became entangled temporarily among them. But not one of the satellites altered its movements to the extent of a hair's breadth, or of a tenth of an instant." 4 But it must be remembered that we had no glasses then, and have none now, that could tell us what were the effects of this visitation upon the surface of Jupiter or its moons. The comet might have covered Jupiter one hundred feet- yes, one hundred miles- thick with gravel and clay, and formed clouds of its seas five miles in thickness, without our knowing ...
57. Maturation of Newborn Female Rats Under Elevated Levels of Carbon Dioxide [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... We selected rat pups for use because (1 ) they grow from birth to sexual maturity in 5 weeks, (2 ) females are easy to recognize as arriving at sexual maturity by observation of vaginal opening (males are much more difficult to assess), and (3 ) they met our ten-week time parameter. Rat cages with hinged glass tops were built by John Patten to the designs of Phillip Patten. They were about 32 inches high, 36 inches deep, 30 inches wide, and had glass lift-up tops. The Animal Research Center supplied the laboratory, mini-cages, feed, Beckman CO2 analyzer, and other instrumentation. The apparatus included two cages, one for the ...
58. Night of the Gods: The Pillar-Axis as Tower [Books]
... that it is not difficult to demonstrate the leading importance of a mythic Cosmic Tower in Irish legends of the most archaic class. Under the heading of "The Wheel" will be given an Irish Ship and Axis myth. Another form of it is in the Historia Brittannium of Nennius. Nimeth, sailing with his 30 keels, sees a glass Tower In the centre of the Ocean with men in it who never answer when spoken to. All the boats attack the Tower, and all are wrecked.23 This was otherwise called Tor Coming or Conaing's Tower, in Tor-y island or TorInis =Tower-island, which was at last demolished by the 30,000 children of Nemed. ...
... had the dates and places of their manufacture inscribed upon them in letters cast in metal. In each there were coins of copper, silver, and often many of gold, capable of serving as valuable historical monuments; in each were an infinite variety of instruments of the arts of war and peace ; many formed of materials, such as glass and earthenware, capable of lasting for indefinite ages when once removed from the mechanical action of the waves, and buried under a mass of matter which may exclude the corroding action of sea-water. The quantity, moreover, of timber which is conveyed from the land to the bed of the sea by the sinking of ships of a large ...
... will not build the house until the reader can see an immovable base to build upon. We have demonstrated, so far as a physical question can be settled by law, that there were waters revolving about the earth ! We have shown, as I think, the only reasonable mode of annular formation and division. Let us turn our glass to the skies. Yonder is a bright gleaming orb, nearly 1 ,000 times as bulky as the earth. Around it revolves an annular system. Across the vast abyss of nearly one thousand millions of miles, we see Saturn's annular appendage, divided into three grand divisions, and these divisions each further divided into a system of ...
