191. Implications for Chronology if Certain 'Historical' Characters are Mythological [Journals] [SIS Review]
... idea has been documented among the Mataco, the Chorote, the Nivalke, and the Tupi, among other tribes. The Nivalke tell of the time when a reed-like ladder descended from the sky: Suddenly, from up there, where the stars come out, a ladder descended. It was made from the same kind of reeds that the Indians used for the shafts of their arrows. Suddenly a ladder made of reeds appeared; it reached from the sky down to the ground' . A Sikuani narrative from the virtually inaccessible recesses along the Orinoco river of Colombia reports that the heavenly ladder resulted from a chain of arrows launched during that primeval period when heaven was ...
192. Child of Saturn (Part III) [Journals] [Kronos]
... ) Consider therefore also the following by D. H. Kelly: " . . . the month Uo was under the patronage of the old black god of the number seven. I have recently argued (Kelly 1972) that this deity is the god of the planet Saturn." (7 ) David Pingree, in his study of Indian astrology, has shown that Saturn was represented as a dark-skinned man in black clothing.(8 ) If this is not enough, note that the Babylonian Ninip (also Ninib and/ or Nirig) was deified as "the black Saturn".(9 ) The above strongly implies that Kali Ma, the Black Mother - and ...
193. On Dragons and Red Dwarves [Journals] [Aeon]
... form in order to gain entrance into the belly of a great dragon. Shortly thereafter, "When the serpent swallowed him, he cut his way out with the obsidian and killed the serpent. He emerged bigger and stronger than before." (42) As a dragon-slaying dwarf, Ez has numerous parallels in the sacred traditions of Pre-Columbian Indians from North and South America. Consider, for example, a fascinating figure from South America known as Mura, the trusty servant of the great god Pura, the primal sun. (43) Described as a red dwarf renowned for his club and giant knife, Mura is said to reside upon the World Mountain at the center of ...
194. On Mars and Pestilence [Journals] [Aeon]
... planet was consistently associated with death, pestilence, and the onset of disease. In Babylonian astronomical texts, for example, the epithet mustabarru mutanu was applied to the planet Mars, translated by Kugler as "he who is swollen with death (pestilence)." (67) Similar ideas are discernible in the New World. The Zinacantecan Indians, for example, heirs to the ancient beliefs of the Maya, continue to believe that the red planet is chiefly responsible for diseases of the eyes. (68) This tradition prompted a leading scholar to identify the Aztec god Xipe- known also as the red Tezcatlipoca- with the planet Mars, the former god being credited in ...

196. "Let There be Light" [Journals] [Kronos]
... then of himself, by the effort of his thought only, he divided the egg in two. "From the two halves he made heaven and earth." (Emphasis added).(68) The above leads us to assume that Brahma was the Hindu name for the planet Saturn and, in fact, Velikovsky thus identifies this Indian deity.(69) It is our contention, however, that this myth of Brahma, as also some others, originally belonged to the repertoire of an earlier god. Thus, Veronica Ions tells us: "At the beginning of each cycle of creation the waters of the cataclysmic flood cover the universe. There are many myths ...

... reign lengths for the same kings but adds a fictitious fourth king to Dynasty 23 with the name Zet', we realise that someone is having us on. Zet' means a riddle' and in numerology 23 also means a riddle'. After lunch, Benny Peiser gave a talk on O-Kee-Pa: Catastrophe Legends and Rituals among the Mandan Indians'. Before starting his main talk Benny remarked that at present in astronomy new comets are being discovered almost daily, some of them almost on collision courses with the Earth. However these are all being discovered by amateur astronomers and not by the exotic Spacewatch' equipment the US developed based on its Star Wars' programme. Scientists are ...
198. The Hunting Or Blitzkrieg Theory [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... archaeologists have always been struck by the abundance of reindeer bones at Cro-Magnon sites. Judging from the bones at the Abri Pataud rockshelter, reindeer provided up to thirty percent of all prey there over a period of more than 10,000 years."27 And what about American bison? This had to have been the main staple of plains Indians very soon after they supposedly wiped out all the other animals. Yet [Kurten concludes] "the bison is still with us."28 According to Pielou,... "Plano people lived after the great wave of extinctions at the end of the Pleistocene. Bison had now become the chief quarry in the Great Plains. ...

... Jehoram and Ahaziah as the defeated kings of Israel and Judah. Jehoram was the son of Ahab and Ahaziah was his ally. They were defeated by Hazael. It seems that the latter was the author of the document, as previously suggested by Bob. Meso-American Ball games. Benny Peiser gave a slide-show about ball games of the ancient Meso-American Indians in Mexico, Guatemala etc. The mythology of the Mexicans includes reference to the first ball games to have been played in heaven between the gods. The losers were sacrificed. The Popol Vuh, the book of the Quiche Indians, dates these to the 3rd world age, a time of catastrophe. They re-enacted the ball games in ...
200. Aphrodite Urania [Journals] [Aeon]
... sweeping away sun and stars," is it not apparent that the imagery of the comet is once more upon us? As repulsive as Kali appears to the Western reader, her cult continues to exert a strange fascination over the people of India. Thus Zimmer describes her as being "today the most cherished and widespread of the personalizations of Indian cult."  Kali's monstrous form, bizarre as it is, can be shown to have striking parallels throughout the ancient world. Consider the example provided by the Chichimec mourning goddess Itzpapalotl, who was commonly represented as a warrior: "Obsidian Knife Butterfly is a wholly Chichimec goddess and her only office was war. She ...
