21. On the Crab Supernova of 1054 [Kronos $]
... . C. Krupp, Editor (Doubleday, New York 1978), p. 139. 4. John C. Brandt, "Pictographs and Petroglyphs of the Southwest Indians," Technology Review, 80 (December 1977): 39. 5. Eddy, p. 140. 6. Paul and Lesley Murdin, The New Astronomy (Thomas Y. Crowell Company, New York, 1978), p. 9. DYNAMICS OF THE ROTATING EARTH To the Editor of KRONOS: In The Path of the Pole, Charles Hapgood points out a misconception quite common amongst those who deal with dynamics of the rotating Earth*.... To explain in rather different terms than Hapgood uses, there are two elements to consider regarding the stability of a rotating sphere; the orientation of the spin axis relative to the universe and the orientation of the sphere relative to its spin axis. Altering the spin axis relative to the universe is the most difficult of these by far and is the parent of most of the large numbers that have come up in KRONOS ...
22. Fingerprints of the Gods by Graham Hancock [SIS C&C Review $]
... and not fully mapped until 1949. There are 14th century maps showing widely scattered places with nearly correct longitude, which was not mastered until 1761. Piri Reis said his maps were copied from much earlier ones. Once it is accepted that these are genuine maps which are copies of originals drawn in 4,000 BC or earlier, one has to postulate a civilisation at that time capable of travelling to all parts of the globe and recording what they found. Hancock, having satisfied himself and, I think, the reader that Hapgood was right, set out to discover what memory remained of that civilisation and its demise. In Peru he saw the Nazca lines, those strange animals and birds, known and unknown, and geometrical designs, drawn by removing tons of pebbles from the ground. Here he found references to Orion- according to astronomer Dr Phillis Pitluga [6, the Nazca spider is a diagram of that constellation. Luis de Monzon (in 1586) linked the lines to the Viracochas, who were described as white and bearded and were reputed ...
23. The Problem of the Frozen Mammoths [Kronos $]
... misconceptions which have arisen due to certain carelessness in the treatment of the subject by past writers. It has been stated that the remains of as many as 100,000 mammoths have been retrieved from the Siberian muck.(1) Statements such as" absolutely countless numbers"(2) and "tens of thousands of mammoths"(3) have given the false impression that that many mammoths have actually been found frozen in the Siberian tundras. In point of fact less than 100 frozen mammoths have been discovered to date. Hapgood writes of "eighty-odd mammoths;"(4) Schuchert and Dunbar state that "there are records of fifty-one Siberian occurrences;'(5) while Farrand asserts that "there have been at least 39 discoveries of frozen mammoth remains."(6) Somewhere there should be an accurate record but in no way will it include tens of thousands of these frozen specimens. What is more important is that only four of these discoveries were close to being complete carcasses.(7) The rest were badly mutilated, most ...

... no evidence of shivering, thereby attesting to the insulating quality of the caribou's pelage. See also Fred Hoyle, ICE: The Ultimate Human Catastrophe (N.Y.,1981), p. 160. "I have been informed that, today when reindeer fall down crevasses in the Greenland ice, they are subsequently found to be in an unpleasantly putrefied condition... The Siberian mammoths, in spite of their much greater body weight, have not putrefied in the same way... ." 5. Charles H. Hapgood, The Path of the Pole (Phila.,1970), pp. 264-269. Also, William R.

25. The Continuing Ica Mystery [SIS C&C Review $]
... Peruvian history. The scenes of men and dinosaurs together are, however, not unique. Velikovsky has drawn attention to some of the evidence for the contemporaneity of men and dinosaurs (" Were All Dinosaurs Reptiles?", Kronos II:2, 1976, pp. 91-100). In southern Mexico at Acambaro models of dinosaurs occur in a vast collection (some 36,000 pieces) of ceramics, damned as "forgeries" in a case which reveals striking similarities to that of the Ica stones. American historian Professor Charles Hapgood* investigated the case and claimed to have witnessed the excavation of such models. Radiocarbon tests he arranged on organic material within the clay, and a thermoluminescence test on a ceramic piece, all gave results of the order of 3000 to 6000 years BP. Given the considerable problems inherent in the application of the methods, such results are far from conclusive, though they certainly suggest that more testing is in order. To further the study of the Ica stones Afford and Milewska are concerned that the stones should be immediately protected by ...
26. Antarctica Revisited, Hapgood Acknowledged [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 38: Mar-Apr 1985 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Antarctica revisited, hapgood acknowledged John G. Weihaupt's paper on possible recent changes in the Antarctic ice cover (summarized in SF#36) evidently stirred up considerable scientific interest. Two long letters and Weihaupt's reply have recently been published in Eos. First and significantly, Weihaupt's omission of any reference to Hapgood's popular work, Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings, was pointed out and belatedly acknowledged by Weihaupt. The second letter was from a French scientist, who concluded that: "...in spite of some hard facts and in spite of warnings against simplistic theories, the idea of fast changes in the Ross Ice Shelf and its main nourishment area, Marie Byrd Land, is widespread in the United States." Weihaupt responded to this with a massive bibliography supporting the idea of recent, rather extensive changes in the Antarctic ice cover. He stated further that other research suggests that even the East Antarctic Ice Sheet may have ...
27. How Much Did They Know? [SIS C&C Review $]
... some of the literature.** The books considered are: HAMLET'S MILL: An essay on myth and the frame of time, by Giorgio de Santillana and Hertha von Dechend (Boston: Gambit, 1969; London: Macmillan, 1970); SECRETS OF THE GREAT PYRAMID by Peter Tompkins, with an appendix by Livio C. Stecchini (London: Allen Lane, 971); HISTORICAL METROLOGY by A. E. Berriman (London: Dent, 1953); and MAPS OF THE ANCIENT SEA KINGS by Charles H. Hapgood (Philadelphia, 1966; London: Turnstone, 1977). An idea which has been gaining ground recently is that maybe the ancients- the people of the pre-scientific, and even preliterate ages- were not so ignorant, superstitious and generally "primitive" as we (for the last couple of centuries at least) have thought them. Particularly it is becoming apparent that there was a great body of astronomical knowledge (together, indeed, with some pretty "advanced" theories) which was expressed verbally in the forms which ...
28. The God-Kings and the Titans: The New World Ascendancy in Ancient Times by James Bailey [Kronos $]
... the links between the two cultures and then all Eurasian records of American glory. The chief evidence for this sweeping reconstruction of ancient history consists of Mexican sculptures and bas-relief carvings of Negroids and Caucasoids, Canaanite rock inscriptions ranging from Brazil to Tennessee, and persistent Nahau, Maya, and Quechua oral traditions of white gods who came from across the Atlantic. Bailey is but one of several scholars who have recently posited pre-Columbian cultures of global extent. Among these are Constance Irwin (in Fair Gods and Stone Faces, 1963), Charles Hapgood (in Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings, 1966), and Cyrus Gordon (in Before Columbus, 1971), of whom Gordon stops at the third millennium B. C., while Hapgood pushes back into the Mesolithic Period. My personal inclination is to be sympathetic with Bailey and his confreres, if only because they have the intellectual courage to examine and deal with ancient evidence that most historical investigators of the past century and a half have swept under the scholarly rug. Of necessity, Bailey draws much of his ...

... ? s study, and lasted for three hours, from 8:30 pm to 11:30 pm. When in our conversation I reminded him that in 1946 he had agreed that the causes of the global catastrophes were extraterrestrial, he answered: ? I was too rash to agree.? I replied, ? Do you rely on your memory more than on your judgment?? implying that he agreed when my material was fresh before him, and disagreed when he hardly could remember much of it. Einstein still found attractive Hapgood ? s theory that ice covers growing asymmetrically caused the Earth ? s crust to slide. He wished to explain the catastrophes as the result of forces in the Earth itself. I asked how asymmetries of a few degrees could bring the ice covers to latitudes of 45 degrees where the crust would be the most liable to disbalancing. I also pointed out that his rejection of the theory of isostasy, which claims that mountain ranges rest on deep subterranean structures, undermines Hapgood ? s position about the sliding of the Earth ? s ...
30. Betty Hill [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... has no bearing on your theories. I do not know if you are acquainted with our book or not; or your opinions about this. And it is not important really. You might be interested in knowing that on our trip, we visited an area called the Devonian Sea area and picked up some fossils. When we had our experience, they were on the front seat of the car, and we wonder if any interest was shown in them. Another purpose of writing is to acquaint you with the works of Charles Hapgood, if he is not known to you now. He teaches at Keene Teachers College in N.H., but he is known for his research of maps. He is the author of ? Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings,? published by Chilton Books. His theory is that an advanced civilization existed thousands of years ago that was almost as advanced as ours today as evidenced by their superior methods of mapmaking and that they mapped all the continents including the Antarctic when it was still free of ice; and that this advanced ...
