132. Typhon and the Comet of the Exodus: Rockenbach's Lost Source [Journals] [Aeon]
... stressing Typhon's connection with the Exodus. Following Velikovsky's lead, most of these investigators have been content to label Typhon outright as a comet  without having quite understood the nature of the underlying connection. Did not Pliny, even before Rockenbach, present Typhon as such? But wait. Long before Pliny there was Hesiod, as also Homer, both of whom are said to have flourished during the 8th century B.C . There were also Aeschylus (525-456 B.C .) , Pindar (522-443 B.C .) , Apollonius Rhodius (221-181 B.C .) , Apollodorus (c . 144 B.C .) , and Hyginus, who ...
133. The Etruscans and their Language [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... '). The word can be explained as he who waves the fire' (Greek pyr' = fire). The Greek tanuo means I stretch out', or I put in violent motion'. Zeus is prytanis steropon keraunon te', brandisher of lightnings and thunderbolts (Pindar, P.VI:24). In Homer, the verb is used of Zeus on Mount Ida, stirring up a battle (Iliad XI:336). Another verb meaning brandish' is tinasso, which suggests the god Tin, the Etruscan equivalent of Zeus. The Etruscan zilch, or zilc, was a high official. As far as I know, the word has ...
... important of all. We know from our Caesar that when the Romans invaded Britain they found that Hermes (or Mercury) was the Britons' chief deity, that he was Optimus et Maximus, and to whom they erected many images". Next to him -and only next-came Apollo, also another important clue to Britain's past. Homer depicts Hermes, in the short passage above, as he appears in many monuments, as a curly-haired youth, wearing his attractive wide-brimmed hat, the petasus (still in favour with Continental priests), with its wings, or sometimes with wings attached to his sandals, to illustrate him as the swift Messenger of the Gods. His ...

136. Thundergods and Thunderbolts [Journals] [Aeon]
... his original nature was largely obscured  , the portrait of the god offered by our earliest sources is consistent, and it conforms to that of an agent of thunder, lightning, wind and rain.  It would also appear likely that the archaic Zeus was a god of war.  Burkert describes the Homeric Zeus as follows: Thunderbird costume of the Kwakiutl Indians of British Columbia. (Illustration by David Rickman.) "Zeus, according to his Homeric epithets, is the cloud gatherer, the dark-clouded, the thunderer on high, and the hurler of thunderbolts; in colloquial speech one can say Zeus is raining' instead of it is ...
137. The Ring of Truth by Isaac Vail [Books]
... they have no meaning at all. A second thought, however, urges us to recognize that all world-thought, however absurd it may now appear, originally had a meaning. It makes no difference whether a fossil be dug from Silurian piles of rock or from the archaic beds of mythology, the fossil must have a meaning. Moses and Homer and Hesiod and a multitude of other ancient writers did not speak of dragons and of serpent monsters to perpetuate a distasteful joke upon credulous mankind. Romans, Greeks, Egyptians, Hindus, Parsees, Chinese, Norsemen and Mexicans did not worship a dragon god, annihilate countless victims upon his altars, carve and paint his nondescript form on ...

... cathode (" negative electrode") and the other as the anode (" positive electrode"). In such an exchange, the scarring sustained by one body would be different from that sustained by the other. But there are four bodies under consideration. Which two make a pair offering the best prospects for the present inquiry? Perhaps Homer has passed along a useful clue: The Greeks attributed the forging of thunderbolts to Hephaistos. Homer further recounts that Hephaistos forged a net, "fine as gossamer but quite unbreakable," which he used to entangle his wife, unfaithful Aphrodite (the moon) and her tempestuous lover, Ares (the planet Mars), and bind ...

... the English Crown and the Church, during which, to appease the greed and hostility of the King, twenty-four deeds of Church land were sealed into a pouch of dough and delivered to his castle. in old slang, the "dough" was handed over; in new slang, the "bread." Hesiod, a contemporary of Homer, in his Genealogy of the Gods, writes of Memoria, daughter of Uranus, the first great sky god: In Pieria, Memoria, ruler of the hills of Eleuther, gave birth to the Muses out of union with Zeus, son of Chronos, and thus the forgetting of ills and a rest from sorrow.
