... or Druidic secret temple of initiation. Indeed, Wayland Smith, with his reputation for wizardry, suggests that he was an impersonation of the Greek (or, more properly, Phoenician) god Hephaestus. For Hephaestus (Vulcan, god of fire, as the Romans dubbed him) was the chief of the Cyclops, who, according to Homer, possessed "superior power" and "forged thunder", as Hesiod adds. He was later supposed to sojourn in a cavern under the sea on the Isle of Lemnos, but other places underground were attributed to him, where he was traditionally heard at work with his Cyclops especially on islands, and where his art in the ...

... pale" and his name, too, is derived etymologically from "heaven." Jane Harrison also found that "Okeanos is much more than Ocean and of other birth."[12] He was the "daimon of the upper air," of the stratosphere, of the binary system's atmospheric plenum in our interpretation. According to Homer, the universe took the form of an egg that was girded about by Okeanos, the Generator. And Socrates in Theathetus says, "When Homer sings of the wonder of Ocean whence sprang the Gods and Mother Tethys' does not mean that all things are the offspring of flux and motion."[13] "Mother Tethys ...

254. Venus and Mars [Books] [de Grazia books]
... In the old calendar they named the first month after him. The Romans irreconcilably claimed both Aeneas, Prince of Troy, and Romulus as their founder. Aeneas was, and is, placed in the twelfth or thirteenth century BC with the Trojan Wars, by older scholarship. Recently the Wars have been brought into later times, along with Homer, who sang of them (de Grazia, 1984a). This is but one step in a reconstruction of chronology that eliminates the several centuries of a so-called Greek Dark Age and pulls the disastrous collapse of the Mycenaean civilization down to the eighth century as well (Isaacson). Roman legend has Romulus and Remus (abandoned and miraculously ...

In his paper The Scandal of Enkomi', Velikovsky examined the controversy which raged around this site in Cyprus, where Mycenaean-type artefacts were discovered in clearly 7th, 6th and even 5th century contexts. Where is John's response to this material? Where is his rebuttal? What about Benny Peiser's article The Homeric Question' printed in C&CR 1996:1 , as well as his more lengthy Recreating the Dark Ages of Greece: The Fatal Flaws in the New Chronology' (Aeon II:3 , 1990, pp. 61-80). In these Benny argued in great detail that the whole of the historical age of Greece (including ...

257. The Poem of Erra [Journals] [Aeon]
... to tremble before the intruding warrior. We also recall here Erra's boast: "I want to attain the seat of the King of the gods so that his counsel be not forthcoming." Is this not a precise parallel to the rumor that Apollo would usurp the prerogative of Zeus? Why Walcott overlooked the Poem of Erra in discussing the Homeric Hymn to Apollo is not easy to say. Certainly the aboriginal Apollo, being a god of war and pestilence, bears a strong resemblance to Erra. (84) Like Apollo, with whom he shares much in common, Heracles was also rumored to have threatened the gods with his arrows. Thus Homer indicted Heracles as follows: ...

... Saturn was in the dreaded Cancer (the reverse positions of Elijah's Barbecue and the Long Day of Joshua.) Fire is recorded as falling from heaven, in one blast, destroying 185,000 Assyrian soldiers, perhaps 75% to 80% of the army corps. Shock waves and concussion killed most; evaporation killed some also.

... by the name of science that displays ignorance of the scientific method and inability to handle the scientific vocabulary." And as a work of history, Worlds in Collision fared scarcely better. While Latourette had complained that Velikovsky had ignored the latest experts, Gaposchkin chastised Velikovsky for neglecting the oldest ones. Instead of relying on the Old Testament, Homer and Hesiod, Velikovsky preferred to employ rabbinical and patristic sources, and Ovid and Apollonius Rhodius. "One might as well turn to Paradise Lost' for a factual account of the Creation. The more primitive sources lend his ideas little weight." Gaposchkin's Harvard colleague, Donald Menzel, published in Physics Today (July) an addendum ...

... killing them, the Scythians approached the Amazons. Despite the heterosexual society they thus founded, the two groups soon decided to form a new nation and live apart from the Scythians. In this way, the women continued to lead the active social roles they were accustomed to without forcing the Scythians to change their ways. In the Iliad of Homer there is a brief mention of Amazons, led by Penthesilea, coming to the aid of the besieged Troy. (12) The reason behind the alliance had to do with the Trojan king Priam who, several years earlier, had absolved the Amazon queen of the crime of murder. Over the centuries, ancient writers were to elaborate ...
