... that the air which had been piled up within the tropics was considerably warmer than that of the ice-fringe districts. This heat-wave' caused by the streaming off of the atmospheric girdle-tide is duly recorded by a number of peoples. In this case it is those living in higher latitudes who furnish us with their significant tales. The Loucheux or Dinjiéh Indians, the northern most tribes touching upon the Eskimos, say that at the time of the Great Flood the canoe of their deluge hero floated upon the waters till they had evaporated through the great heat. The Tchiglit Indians settling on the lower reaches of the Mackenzie River tell in their deluge myth of the great differences in the temperature of ...
152. The Terrible Ones, Part 2 Mars Ch.5 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... The clouds, the fire, the terrifying din, the darkness in the middle of the day; the fantastic figures on the sky of speeding chariots, running horses, marching warriors; the trembling of the earth, the reeling of the firmament, were visualized, felt, and feared on the shores of both the Mediterranean Sea and the Indian Ocean, for they were not local disturbances, but displays of cosmic forces in cosmic dimensions. Joel did not copy from the Vedas nor the Vedas from Joel. In more than this one instance i t is possible to show that peoples, separated even by broad oceans, have described some spectacle in similar terms. These were pageants ...

... or any other facet of religious music? A second useful line of enquiry might be regarding the origins and relations of present races or groups of peoples, as interpreted from the degree of similarity of their musical traditions. I recently heard some traditional Chinese music which, to my untrained ear, was extremely reminiscent of the music of the Andean Indians. I would be interested to know whether the music of the North American Indians would support the accepted view that all American Indians arrived via the Bering Straits from northern China and then gradually migrated south over thousands of years. If the music of the South American Indians is more like that of China than that of the intermediately situated North ...

... these and other specimens from river water sometimes as large as 3000 years. This is most likely due to carbon exchange with CO3 derived from CaCO3 deposits. Considerations given later in this chapter concerning the salt balance of the Great Basin indicate that Lake Bonneville disappeared only about 2000 years ago, interestingly enough, at a time coinciding with a persistent Indian legend which also described the nature of the disappearance of Lake Bonneville. If this were true, such radiocarbon age determinations as those for Danger Cave [Libby, 1955] involving charcoal specimens dating around 11,500 years ago and those described by Broecker and Orr  for samples taken from the shores of fossil Lake Bonneville, ...
156. The Myth of the Tower [Books]
... In the Surah ' Of the Mount', of the Koran (Iii) an Arabian myth is referred to which told that the devils climb up to the gate of heaven by means of a ladder and listen for scraps of he knowledge of futurity. When they are detected by the angels they are pelted with shooting-stars. ' The Papago Indians of California tell in one of their myths that the divine person, Montezuma, who had escaped the deluge in a vessel, had differences with the Great Spirit. To spite him, Montezuma built an edifice which was to reach up to heaven. It was never finished, however, because the Great Spirit sent his thunders which destroyed ...

... where tradition has the sun remaining above the horizon. Nothing of this was questioned by Latourette. So what did he disprove or expose? George Kubler, Professor of the History of Art at Yale and a student of Mesoamerican civilization, brought two issues to the discussion. He wondered that I interpreted the 52-year cycle of the Mayas and Mexican Indians "as an historical survival of the terrors experienced between the two contacts' of the Venus-comet with earth." I have not concealed my sources. Fernando de Alva Ixtlilxochitl, the early Mexican scholar (ca. 1568-1648) who was able to read old Mexican texts, preserved the ancient tradition according to which multiples of the fifty-two-year period ...
