131. Thoth Vol II, No. 12: July 31, 1998 [Journals] [Thoth]
... the dove definitely symbolizes Venus. This possibility was first raised by Dave to me in a private conversation. At the time, it rang a familiar chord since I knew Nergal and Apollo were symbolized by ravens. Since that time I have found that virtually every Martian hero was given a raven form, the most obvious example being the American Indian hero Raven. DWARDU ADDS: And don't forget the Egyptian Horus. TIA ACHESON ASKS: Raven was Mars? I thought Raven was the creator, the ruler, the wisest one. Wouldn't that be Saturn? So tell me who was Saturn in the American Indian legends? DAVE T ANSWERS: Yes, in later accounts it is ...
132. An Integrated Model for an Earthwide Event at 2300 BC. Part I: The Archaeological Evidence [Journals] [SIS Review]
... also identified at this time. There is only one dated site, Burzahom, in the north for the Kashmir culture. Although limited calibrated radiocarbon data places the initial site around 2400 BC in one source, the starting date is defined at about 2300 BC by a second source. The Kashmir culture appears to be a unique culture having no Indian parallels, but having affinities with the Neolithic cultures of northern China and central Asia. It seems to have coexisted with Harappan and with other Chalcolithic cultures in the region. For the southern culture, there are ten sites with much higher quality dating. Utnur Phase IB at about 2300 BC is the earliest dated site for the southern culture ...
133. On "The Year -687": A Postscript (Vox Populi) [Journals] [Kronos]
... southern hemisphere, the situation is reversed.) The latitude of India ranges from about 8 to 32 N., a distance of more than 1500 miles. We cannot exclude the possibility that the range of places where ancient astronomical observations were made extended even further south, to Ceylon perhaps, or from the deck of a ship in the Indian Ocean. But for the sake of argument, let us assume it is definitely known that all the observations used in compiling our ancient chart were made in one place, say as far north as New Delhi. The latitude of New Delhi being 28.4 N., an observer situated there can see all bright stars except those ...
134. Worship Of The Morning Star, Part 1 Venus Ch.9 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... "Ishtar, the fearful dragon," wrote Assurbanipal.(43) The Morning Star of the Toltecs, Quetzal-cohuatl (Quetzalcoatl), also is represented as a great dragon or serpent: "cohuatl" in Nahuatl is "serpent", and the name means "a feathered serpent."(44) The Morning Star of the Indians of the Chichimec tribe in Mexico is called "Serpent cloud,"(45) a remarkable name because of its relation to the pillar of cloud and the clouds that covered the globe after the contact of the earth with Venus. When Quetzal-cohuatl, the lawgiver of the Toltecs, disappeared on the approach of a great catastrophe and the ...
135. Pot Pourri [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Certainly it could not have happened until the Chinese had firmly established themselves along the western coast of Africa. '[ 4 ]. Yet only a year later, in 1421: The Year China Discovered the World, [5 ] author Gavin Menzies [6 ] claims to have provided incontrovertible evidence' that the Chinese, possibly accompanied by Indians from Calicut, explored virtually the whole world between 1421 and 1423, charting the coasts of North and South America as well as Australia, reaching more than 3000 countries' [7 ] and founding colonies in various places. The author, born in China, has sailed many of the routes he describes while the commander of a submarine ...
136. Giants [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... which implies that something which is no longer present or in existence, was previously present or in existence. . . . this implies that they no longer exist, although they did exist previously. Ev Cochrone: The belief that "there were giants in those days" is very widespread in nature. Consider the following tradition of the Pawnee Indians: "The first men who lived on earth were very large Indians. They were giants; very big and very strong." (George Grinnell, Pawnee Hero Stories and Folk-Tales," 1961, p. 354). According to Pawnee tradition, this race of giants was killed by the Flood. How are we to understand ...
137. The Ocean Enters The Debate. File II (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... previous pages. It was as if sky and sea competed to reveal facts pointing to the catastrophic nature of their past. In the August 1950 issue of Scientific American, Professor Hans Pettersson published a preliminary report of the expedition of the Oceanographic Institute at Göteborg in Sweden which under his leadership covered large tracts of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian oceans and found "evidences of great catastrophes that have altered the face of the earth." He spoke of "climatic catastrophes" and "volcanic catastrophes" and "tectonic catastrophes [that] raised or lowered the ocean bottom hundreds and even thousands of feet, spreading huge tidal waves which destroyed plant and animal life on the coastal ...
138. The Rise of a New Culture (Built Before the Flood) [Books]
... Tiahuanaco, as it has been named from the most important site on the shore of the land-locked Inter-Andean Sea of the Intermediate level-and soon it spread its fertilizing cultural impulses over all the area of the Asylum. This area was probably the mythical land of Ttahua-ntin Suyu', the Common Gathering Place of All Nations',1 of which local Indian tradition is still faintly reminiscent. (Cf. Diagram 3) So safe did the rulers of that realm feel, that they embarked upon grandiose, ambitious, long term building schemes for a Sacred Capital, and began to erect extensive, well-orientated edifices. And far from being afraid of the waters, they even made them their servant ...
139. Problems With The Morning Star [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... picture is not so clear cut. The ancient Maya are well known for their obsession with the planet Venus. John Henderson writes that Venus, to the Maya, had many aspects. "Most are malevolent and dangerous, particularly when the planet first rises as the Morning Star."[5 ] This also agrees with a North American Indian legend where the Morning Star, or Great Star, is placed as a warrior in the east, and the Evening Star, or Bright Star, placed in the west, is called Mother-of-all-Things and associated with creation[6 ]. However, in Mesoamerica the main deity to be associated with the Morning Star is Quetzalcoatl and his characteristics ...
140. Night of the Gods: Axis Myths [Books]
... Pelops was the white heavens; the rapt of the palladium by Dio-Medta, clearly a central god-name, has also genuine meaning. "The Palladion (called Diopetes, that is heaven-dropped) which Diomedes and Odysseus (Ulysses) carried off from Troy to Demophoon was made of the bones of Pelops, as Olympian Zeus of the bones of the Indian wild beast." this last may point to images of bone or ivory.8 Palladia arx, the citadel protected by Pallas (Propertius, iii',7 , 42)is primarily the arx (see Index) of the highest heavens' which is thus again identified with the celestial counterpart of terrestrial Troy. Palladin Alba is ...
