161. The Cosmic Origin of the Swastika [Journals] [Aeon]
... if Zecharia Sitchin is correct, the Canaanite El, who was Saturn, was termed Ab Adam, i.e . the "Father of Adam," in texts from Ugarit. (40) The above becomes of greater import in view of the fact that we have already identified Adam as the prototype of Prometheus. The North American Indian Coyote. Left: From Oraibi- Right: From Chaco Canyon. (Illustrations by Oswald White Bear Fredericks.) Thus, if Adam was really a personification of Mars, rather than of Saturn, it should follow that so was Prometheus, the confusion with Saturn having risen out of the same state of primeval affairs. Now, ...
162. How are Myths and Legends Spread Between Cultures [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... - as someone has already mentioned- is precisely about his theory of diffusion. You might also read some of Franz Boas's papers. See if you can find Race, Language and Culture, which is his collection of his writings. There are several papers worth reading: "The Development of Folk-Tales and Myths", "The Growth of Indian Mythologies", and his introduction to James Teit's Traditions of the Thompson Indians of British Columbia are a few. > 2. Prior to the development of modern mass > communications, e.g 1900AD, as an arbitrary date, > would it have been possible for a myth or legend to have > been spread between very different ...
163. Venus: A Battle Star? [Journals] [Horus]
... to the rulers and warriors could include, as one option, overthrow and defeat in battle. This is reinforced by Seler's additional observation that Tlauizcalpantecutli (the god of the Morning and Evening Star) was a representative of those who have fallen in battle. In his "Historia de los Indios de Nueva Espana," (History of the Indians of New Spain) Friar Toribio Motlinia writes; "After the Sun, they worshiped and made more sacrifices to this star [Venus] than to any other celestial or terrestrial creature. After it disappeared in the West, the astrologers knew the day when the Eastern One (the "eastern planet" or "planet in the East ...
164. The Saturn Theory [Journals] [SIS Review]
... radically different orbits and rained catastrophe from the skies, even if that message has been overlooked and ostrachized' [5 ] by everyone except Velikovsky. Numerous cultures tell of the time when different suns ruled the heavens. This belief was especially common in the New World: The idea that the sun was not eternal was shared by other American Indian tribes so widely that we consider it must have been part of their belief long before any high culture had arisen in the Americas' [6 ]. The Popol Vuh, lauded as the Mayan Bible', attests to the same idea. In it a previous sun' is described as follows: Like a man was the sun ...
165. Poles Uprooted, Part 2 Mars Ch.7 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... polar star, Dhrura, "the fixed" or "immovable." In the Puranas it is narrated how Dhrura became the polar star. The Lapps venerate the po lar star and believe that if it should leave its place, the earth would be destroyed in a great conflagration.11 The same belief is found among the North American Indians.12 The day on which the shortest shadow is cast at noon is the day of the summer solstice; the longest shadow at noon is cast on the day of the winter solstice. This method of determining the seasons by measuring the length of the shadows was applied in anc ient China, as well as in other countries. ...
... , Ancient Tahiti (1928), pp. 561ff.]. (Ava == Kawa, and stands for the "next-best-substitute" for Amrita, the drink of immortality which is the property of the gods; mythologically Polynesian Kawa resembles almost exactly the Soma of Vedic literature; even the role of the "Kawa-filter" is an ancient Indian reminiscence; and, as befits the pseudo-drink-of-immortality, it is stolen, by Maui, or by Kaulu, exactly as happens in India, and in the Edda, and elsewhere). Meanwhile Ishtar, scorned, goes up to heaven in a rage, and extracts from Anu the promise that he will send down the Bull of Heaven ...
167. Reviews [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... . It is much more likely that there are negligible traces of erosion on the rocks, since they solidified only a few thousand years ago. Even so, I found COSMOS a most enjoyable mixture of pretentious instruction, romanticism and near-farce. It has a rapturous magnificence and the misty smiling Sagan image is like something out of a third rate Indian film. I feel sure it will be shown as a rib-breaking comedy in twenty years time, especially because of the Grand Wurlitzer space-ship effects, with Sagan at the keyboard and cosmic events being visible at many billion times the speed of light, and for its intervals of ham-acting supposed scenes from ancient days. It is somewhat disconcerting to ...
168. The Ice Age and the Antiquity of Man, Prologue Ch.2 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... shores and the bottom of Lake Michigan also suggest a lapse of time counted in thousands, but not in tens of thousands, of years. Also the result of paleontological research in America carries evidence which constitutes "a guarantee that before the last period of glaciation, modern man, in the form of that highly developed race, the American Indian, was living on the eastern seaboard of North America" (A . Keith).(5 ) It is assumed that with the advent of the last glacial period the Indians retreated southward, returning to the north when the ice uncovered the ground and when the Great Lakes emerged, the basin of the St. Lawrence was formed ...
169. The Asphalt Pit Of La Brea. Ch.5 Tidal Wave (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... made under comparable circumstances. The plants of the Carpinteria tar pits were found, with one exception, to have been "members of the Recent flora," or of the flora now living 200 miles to the north.10 Separate bones of a human skeleton were also discovered in the asphalt of La Brea. The skull belonged to an Indian of the Ice Age, it is assumed. However, it does not show any deviation from the normal skulls of Indians. The human bones were found in the asphalt under the bones of a vulture of an extinct species. These finds suggest that the time when the human body was buried preceded the extinction of that species of vulture ...
170. The Rise and Fall of Man (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... perpetual spring that followed the Tertiary cataclysm may have made many tribes indolent and disinclined to improve their standard. Many myths tell of tools having been saved more or less accidentally (quite apart from the elaborate ark myths, some of which even tell of the salvage of a lot of quite unnecessary odds and ends). In various North American Indian myths fire-drills are mentioned, in others stone implements, pots, bows, jewellery are reported to have been saved. Such saved tools were greatly coveted and frequently stolen from their owners, probably because of their efficiency, though the myths usually stress the magical' properties of the other-worldly' implements. Some myths say that the people who ...
