91. Geology And Archaeology. Ch.13 Collapsing Schemes (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... all estimates based on a geological or a paleontological time scale. As an additional argument the archaeologist points to pictures of extinct animals in Babylonian and Egyptian bas reliefs, the bones of which have actually been found. And the anthropologist believes that even oral traditions concerning extinct animals are grounds for far-reaching conclusions. "Archaeology has proved that the American Indian hunted and killed elephants; it has also strongly indicated that these elephants have been extinct for several thousand years. This means that the traditions of the Indians recalling these animals have retained their historical validity for great stretches of time. Exactly how long, it is impossible to say: probably the minimum is three thousand years. . . ...
... he is not the only one) state explicitly that another Mill has to be constructed (see p. 110)? Why had Dhruva to be appointed to play Pole star- and for a given cycle? [n7 The Vishnu Purana 1.12 (d . 2.8 , p. 187 of the Wilson translation) betrays the Indian predilection for huge and unrealistic numbers and periods: Dhruva is meant to last one kalpa- 4,320,000 years.] For the story refers in no way to the creation of the world. One might even ask, as the alternative solution to Rydberg's challenging "limb-grist," whether Bergelmer was not heaved in the same manner ...
93. A Continent Torn Apart. Ch.6 Mountains And Rifts (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... the instant of bursting, that is, of opening of the fissure."3 He observed also that immense floods of lava gushed out of the earth along the Rift and a most vigorous volcanic action took place. Suess brought to geology the now generally accepted concept of Gondwana land, a continental mass that occupied the larger portion of the Indian Ocean, and that in a relatively recent subsidence was torn apart and drowned. The subsidence of the Gondwana continent could have caused a strain on western Asia and Africa, and under this tension the land must have been rent and the Great Rift formed. Gregory wrote: "The nearest approach in size [to the Rift] can ...
94. Tiahuanaco and the Delug [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History VI:2 (July 1984) Home | Issue Contents THEORY WORKSHOP Tiahuanaco and the Deluge Helmut Settl Cradled in the basin of the Peruvian-Bolivian altiplano, the Titicaca region is currently densely populated by the Aymara Indians, who eke out an agricultural existence, subsisting primarily on maize, frozen potatoes, and chicha, a fermented alcoholic beverage made of cornmeal. But there is evidence that such was not always the case. Just 12 miles southward of the southernmost tip of Lake Titicaca lie the remains of Tiahuanaco, the site of a technologically advanced culture considered by many archaeologists (romantic- not orthodox) to be the oldest ruins in the world. ...
95. The Mount of Salvation [Books]
... of the myth having become telescoped. The waters of the deluge, as we know from certain-myths (cf. pp. I33 f ), were excessively salty; and the myths which tell that people who fell into the watery of the deluge, or who were thrown into them to appease them, were changed into stone. The Zuni Indians of New Mexico, for instance, tell that a boy and a girl were thrown raging waters of the flood to appease their anger. They were changed into two great rocks which were henceforth called Father and Mother (Note 90). The Washban Indians of California, tell that at the time of the great flood the great spirit ...
96. Boiling Earth and Sea, Part 1 Venus Ch.4 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... dwell therein."(6 ) The rivers steamed, and even the bottom of the sea boiled here and there. "The sea boiled, and all the shores of the ocean boiled, all the middle of it boiled," says the Zend-Avesta. The star Tistrya made the sea boil.(7 ) The traditions of the Indians retain the memory of this boiling of the water in river and sea. The tribes of British Columbia tell: "Great clouds appeared . . . such a great heat came, that finally the water boiled. People jumped into the streams and lakes to cool themselves, and died."(8 ) On the North Pacific coast ...
97. Chapter I: The Worship of the Sun and the Dawn [Books]
... it is a very remarkable thing that from the beginning of things- so far as we can judge from the records- the sign for God was a star. We find the same idea in Egypt: in some of the hieroglyphic texts three stars represented the plural "gods." I have already remarked that the ideas of the early Indian civilisation, crystallised in their sacred books called Vedas, were known to us long before either the Egyptian or the Babylonian and Assyrian records had been deciphered. Enough, however, is now known to show that we may take the Vedas to bring before us the remnants of the first ideas which dawned upon the minds of the earliest dwellers ...
98. The Ring About The Earth at 2300 BC [Journals] [SIS Review]
... [8 ]. One potentially important dating technique is based on astronomical observations, in that the naksatra calendar is referred to several times in the Rgveda. Authorities generally agree that on the the astronomical evidence, the 24th century BC is the most likely compilation date of the naksatra calendar [9 ]. Major Iranian deities have been identified with Indian counterparts in the Rgveda, allowing dating referencing to the Indo-Iranian separation at about 2300BC. In Greek mythology, Zeus and other deities can be traced to the Indo-Europeans who moved into that region around 2300BC. Strong linguistic links between the Balkan cultures and the early Indo-Europeans around 2300BC could possibly serve as a dating reference for that region. The ...

... from thence it was parted, and became into four heads." (1 ) So reads the Book of Genesis. The four rivers of Adam's paradise, according to many Hebrew and early Christian accounts, flowed in opposite directions, spreading to the four corners of the world. (2 ) The tradition is apparently universal. The Navaho Indian narration of the "Age of Beginnings" speaks of an ancestral land from which the inhabitants were driven by a great catastrophe. Among the occupants of this remote home, some say, were "First Man" and "First Woman." Most interesting is the means by which the land was watered: "In its centre was ...
100. Night of the Gods: Polar Myths. The North [Books]
... with the face towards the N (256). [The Graha. The graha vessel or cup is described as resembling a mortar in shape. It is also explained as a small saucer-cup of clay, to put over the cavity of the soma-vessel (patra) and so cover the precious intoxicating soma-juice, the sacrificial wine of these archaic Indian sacrifices. The patra is said to be " a vessel which resembles a large wooden jar," but has only a very slight cavity (on the top) into which the soma juice is poured. (Note that chalice and paten would seem here to have changed names.) Graha and patra are as inseparable as cup and ...
