181. The Flood [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... , then flowed back over the land, they would produce the above-mentioned topography and would generate the burial of Pleistocene fauna hetacombs. However, if such ocean floods flowed into the Arctic, they would carry along an immense amount of detritus. The Arctic Ocean would still retain this load of material and, compared to the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans, would contain greater depths of sediment. This has been proven: "The Arctic [Ocean] contains four depressions of oceanic depth which, unlike other oceans, hold large volumes of sediment."(74) (Emphasis added.) Why should only the Arctic Ocean basin be covered by great amounts of sediment if these ...

... the frequently semitic red heads and marked them as of the evil god [16]. Typhon was Phaeton; Typhon was the monster struck down by Zeus in a great battle; but some saw Zeus and Typhon while others saw the comet head battling the grip of its monster-like tail. Typhon is the archetype of the typhoon. The Iroquois Indians told a story much like Phaeton and Typhon: Long ago, an immense Serpent bearing horns (encorné) devastated Lake Ontario. The Sun and the Moon witnessed the extinction of the Indians, swallows up one after another by the monster. In the end not a canoe was left on the water, not a lodge on the lake ...

183. Jupiter God of Abraham (Part IV) [Journals] [Kronos]
... man, like his modern counterpart, would have had many an experience with thunderstorms. He would have witnessed lightning striking trees, perhaps causing forest fires, and other mishaps. It would not have been unusual, as it is not now, to have thunderbolts demolish buildings. - But entire cities? One can understand why the North American Indians of the eastern woodlands deified thunder and anthropomorphized the phenomenon as Heng, the big vigorous youngster of the thunderbolt.(268) But in the mythologies of other races we also see the thunderbolt wielded as a weapon by the planetary gods. Were the ancients trying to tell us that thunderbolts did in fact emanate from the planets? The ...

Hunters who still perpetuate primitive habits continue to use "finger posts". Interesting examples of these, as used by the Abnaki Red Indians of North America are as follows: Fig 9. Red Indian Finger-posts (after Leo Frobenius) Figure A is a characteristic guide post to a camp; figure B is one of temporary character; figure C indicates both direction and distance, the upright post placed near the end of the branch shows that the distance is not a great ...

... , some geologists regard the latter as having been already formed before the Tertiary Age. The Mesozoic anchorage bollard or apex being situated in about equal halves about the French-Spanish frontier, the antapex was somewhere between Tasmania and southern New Zealand, and the positions between these two main points were in the Pacific Ocean off western Mexico, and in the Indian Ocean to the south-west of the tip of India. The Mesozoic satellite probably first started laying down strata of sedimentary rock on its last slow circuit round the Earth from east to west towards the place where it was to become stationary over the terrestrial surface. The strata then laid down were those of the Triassic system. In Europe, ...

The Fall of Phaethon (Roman Sarcophagus: bas-relief) (In dealing with the parallel passage, Kugler indulges in one of his rare moments of dry wit: noting that the Indians mentioned in line 206 were missing from line 213, one of Kugler's contemporaries had apparently accused the poet of "forgetting the Indians as a result of the frequent mention of the Ethiopians"; Kugler remonstrates: "One can be a bad poet without suffering from senile lapses of memory. If the whole passage were indeed nonsense, and ...

Out of the various parts of his body carne into being the different parts of the Earth, the seas were formed out of his fat his tears became rivers, his hairs turned into the plants. An Indian myth, preserved in the Rig-Veda, tells that the gods endeavouring to free the world from chaos killed the primeval giant Purusha. They created the world out of his carcass. One of the myths of the Kabyles, a Berber tribe of Morocco, may also be mentioned here, though it does not directly refer to the creation of ...

... to the heavens fitted the belief that the genius manifested itself in flame and the Stoic belief that souls passed at death as fire to the heavens. (145) The Latins were not alone in comparing comets to souls of great kings. The fact is that ancient peoples from around the world compared comets to souls. (146) American Indians, for example, compared comets to the souls of the stars. (147) Among the Polynesian Islanders a comet signified the flight of the soul, in addition to the death of a king. (148) Frazer, in his extensive researches into ancient beliefs, found that: "A widespread superstition... associates meteors ...

... Columbus voyage. The presumed speed of diffusion following the Spanish expeditions to the New world was held as evidence of the importance Columbus had on the rest of the world. Likewise, the native fowl known as the turkey was described in 19th-century books as a post-Columbian import even though it was previously known in France as a dindon, or "Indian bird," long before Columbus sailed west. [25] Historians ignored ancient references to horses in Fu-Sang and Vinland (that is, North America) which they regarded as fictitious. Instead, they asserted (simply on the basis of dogma) that it was Columbus who brought the first horses to the New World. Orthodox historians ...
