141. New Insights to Antiquity: A Drawing Aside of the Veil by Richard Petersen [Journals] [Aeon]
... also discovered the Grand Canyon, where one of Coronado's men was purported to have exclaimed, "Something's happened here!" A century and a half later (1694) Father Eusebio Kino set out to investigate Fray Marcos' Seven Cities but found just ruins of what were former thriving communities. More than a dozen years before this, an Indian uprising had forced the Spaniards themselves to abandon the new settlement of Santa Fe and escape to El Paso and, a decade later, Don Diego de Vargas led a force to impose order once again on their conquered territory in Nuevo Mexico. But, one might as well note, the conquistadors also brought small pox to these outposts and ...

... and spices from the Orient and predicted that another route across the Western expanse beyond the Pillars of Hercules would some day be found. But, until the Portuguese Prince Henry "The Navigator" sent a paltry few, but successful, lanteen-sailed fleets to explore the west coast of Africa and eventually sail around the Cape of Good Hope into the Indian Ocean, little was known of any sea lanes other than those in the Mediterranean and along the western Atlantic shores of Europe. Henry the Navigator procured his clues secretively from the 1428 World Map provided to cartographer Fra Mauro by the Venetian trader Niccolò da Conti, who arrived in 1420 at Calicut, a major trading port on the Malabar ...
143. Megalithic Circles and Star Charts [Journals] [SIS Review]
... were described as simple structures, erected in the open, might suggest an early date . A number of authors have advanced an Indo-European origin for the Scandinavian mythology, which would place it somewhat in the time period of interest. Palome presents several arguments for assuming Indo-European traditions in Germanic mythology, based on etymological identifications with equivalent Indian, Hittite, and Greek words. A prominent example would be the Aesir who represent the sovereign gods in the Germanic pantheon, the Indo-Iranian Asura sovereign god' and the Hittite hassus king' . O'Brien addresses the legend of Ragnarok (contained in a poem called the Voluspa, which in turn is part of the Verse ...
144. Martian Metamorphoses: The Planet Mars in Ancient Myth and Religion, by Ev Cochrane [Journals] [SIS Review]
... and pestilence, whom Homer described as the cause of the outbreak of the Trojan war. In fact he has many resemblances to Reseph, Nergal and Erra. Reseph's cult is believed to have originated in Syria but spread throughout the Mediterranean and both Reseph and Apollo have combat myths in which they slay serpents. Apollo also has connections with the Indian war god Rudra, described as the red boar of heaven, and he in turn with the Celtic war god Rudianos (Red) who has long been identified with Mars. Hero gods throughout the European and Near Eastern areas are convincingly caught within Cochrane's Martian web. Even though it may be argued that all of these derive from a ...

146. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... arrival of men there would be no effect upon the mammoths but when the human population reached a certain critical level the mammoth population would crash in less than 100 years. It is difficult to ascribe their extinction to simple climatic factors as they had survived thousands of years of great fluctuations. Indirect evidence also comes from the hunting methods of plains Indians. A sink hole has been discovered where buffalo were driven over a 50 foot cliff. An estimated 20,000 animals died there in the course of 300 years. Origins of the Star and Crescent New Scientist 21/28.12.91, pp. 48-51 and 1.2 .92, p. 62 The origins ...
147. The Great Flood -- General Remarks [Books]
... parts of the Bible (Note 53) and in the mythology of the world we find significant references or allusions. A Jewish myth tells that when Kenanilh was king in the world a third of the Earth was inundated, and that in the days of Enos the same thing had happened. Other peoples are more explicit still, the Tupi Indians of Brazil tell that formerly the Moon (i .e . the cosmic body that is now the Moon: the planet Luna is meant) used to fall' periodically on the Earth causing much devastation. The Mayas record that once a certain country was lost when a planet brushed close by the Earth. The ancient Mexicans considered that ...
... because of devastating earthquakes. It is a curious fact that the old races whose natural habitat lay in the region which climatically are suffering more than others are those now dying out. As the cold and damp descends from the Poles it smites those racial types who were organically related to a subtropical climate. In North America there are the native Indian races who are steadily becoming extinct despite all efforts to preserve them; and, correspondingly, in the south there are the Kanakas of Polynesia. Both regions of the earth are extremely ancient settlements, and none more so than the Polynesian Islands. For, unless all records are incorrect, or unless the system of meteoric impulses from the ...
... book entitled God is Red by Vine Deloria, a Sioux. I intend to take as a starting-point some of Deloria's ideas, but I would like to preface that with a Sioux tale he recounts on the subject of civility in the exchange of religious beliefs. The tale goes this way: A missionary once undertook to instruct a group of Indians in the truths of his holy religion. He told them of the creation of the earth in six days, and of the fall of our first parents by eating an apple. The courteous savages listened attentively, and, after thanking him, one related in his turn a very ancient tradition concerning the origin of maize. But the ...
150. Worlds In Collision. File I (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... ) According to the Mexican sources, there were several cosmic upheavals. Two of them were separated by only fifty-two years, and again the fifty-two-year period was connected with Venus and called by her name. During one of the catastrophes, when the world burned, the sun stood still on the horizon. How, I thought, could the Indians have known the relation between the disturbance in the earth's rotation and the burning of the world- unless such events had really taken place? I thought of parallels in the Scriptures: Between the Exodus and the day of Joshua at Ajalon about fifty-two years passed. Brasseur, though a clergyman and missionary, had never noticed any similarity between the ...
