271. The Valley of Colours [Journals] [SIS Review]
... rock' and discovered three different types of colours. In some cases all three colours were enclosed in the specimens he had retrieved. These were dark brownish red, dark yellow and in some pieces very small traces of white could be seen. (When held beside tubes of paint in one's paint box, the colours were compared roughly to Indian red', Yellow ochre and Flake white'.) The rock-like colours, often very powdery, came off on to one's hands, clothes etc. and one was immediately struck with the use to which these handy' materials might be put -virtually a rock palette' which could be held in one's hand, a brush in the ...
272. The Many Faces Of Venus - The Planet Venus in Ancient Myth and Religion by Ev Cochrane (Book Review). C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... rained fire. Epithets translated as Morning and Evening Star have been variously used to tie in this goddess with the present aspects of the planet Venus as Morning and Evening Star but nothing else from the above descriptions of Inanna/Ishtar can in any way be referring to the present behaviour of this planet. Turning to the lore of North American Indians, Cochrane presents a wealth of evidence that they too were obsessed with the planets and Venus was again described as a beautiful woman and the Evening Star but who was distinguished from the Morning Star, or Mars, whom she married. A slight digression into the war-like attributes of Mars is necessary at this point in order to make clear ...
273. Phallic Worship in the Modern World [Journals] [Aeon]
... trapped on the mountain trail. Braving the fierce elements, most of the pilgrims managed to reach safer locations, but, at least 160 pilgrims lost their lives. 20,000 more were trapped in biting cold at the shrine itself. Several attempts to rescue the pilgrims were all abandoned due to the inclement weather conditions until, finally, Indian army troops had to be summoned to rescue the thousands of men and women that were still stranded along the 46 kilometer snow-laden trail. With the help of the soldiers and some local villagers, most of the pilgrims managed to reach the base camps that were set up at Chandanwari and Pahalgam from where many of them had to be carted ...
274. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... We clearly see this in the fossil remains from consecutive formations invariably being much more closely related to each other, than are the fossils from formations distant from each other in time." However, even at that time there was some evidence against gradualism: for example, three genera of elephants, one including the African elephant, one the Indian elephant and one the mammoth, had been shown to have appeared more or less simultaneously from the ancestral genus Primelephas, and the two surviving species had changed very little from the time of their first appearance to the present day (a time interval now thought to be in excess of four million years). In vain the palaeozoologist Thomas ...
275. Velikovskian Catastrophes in the Revelation of St. John [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... every mountain and island were moved out of their places.[Revelation 6:12-14] Only one sentence I think will need some explanation: "And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together." In Worlds in Collision [1 ] we can read about the impression experienced by various peoples during Velikovskian catastrophes. Mexican Indians speak about a collapsing sky and darkness. The Celts (readers of Asterix albums will remember!) feared the sky would fall upon their heads. The Chinese speak of a collapsing sky and mountains falling down. It is clear that the scenery is the same. When in the future the prophecy of Revelation will begin to be fulfilled ...
276. Vox Popvli [Journals] [Aeon]
... , neither Marinus van der Sluijs nor Josephine Bacon have ever acted as a consultant to AEON. Ed. Day Star Questioned E. J. Bond, from Kingston, Ontario, writes: Ev Cochrane has told us that the planet Venus was known by an epithet translatable as "Day Star" by various ancient nations: Slavs, Crow Indians, Polynesians, Indonesians, Maya, Sumerians. [1 ] This would imply that Venus was seen as a very bright star in the daytime sky. Cochrane quotes the marriage hymn of Iddin-Dagan (Sumerian, early 2nd millennium BCE): "By night she seems (as bright) as the moonlight, in the middle of the ...
277. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... man. Again most of the material is from standard sources, Nature heading the field, closely followed by the American Antiquarian and American Anthropologist, though there is a wider time-span, some late eighteenth century items being included. Starting with fossil footprints and giant skeletons the collection proceeds with cup-marks, petroglyphs, legends of gods and giants, American Indian astronomy, Celtic remains in Jamaica, ancient metallurgy and Noah's Ark, and ends with an extensive section on structural artefacts such as temples, dolmens, menhirs, vitrified forts, henges, pyramids, obelisks and ancient tunnels and mines. Astronomical alignments naturally figure prominently in this section starting with the pioneering work of Lockyer and others and going ...
278. Huitzilopochtli, Part 2 Mars Ch.3 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... was "a great destroyer of towns and killer of people." The epithet "blood-stained stormer of walls" is familiar to us from the Iliad, where it is regularly applied to Mars. "In warfare he [Huitzilopochtli] was like live-fire, greatly feared by his enemies," writes Sahagun.2 In his work on the Indians of America, H. H. Bancroft writes: "Huitzilopochtli had, like Mars and Odin, the spear or a bow in his right hand, and in the left, sometimes a bundle of arrows, sometimes a round white shield. . . . On these weapons depended the welfare of the state, just as on the ...
279. A Fifteenth-Century Exodus [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... - Peru, to be precise. Sitchin uses a document of Fernando Montesinos in his book, Memorias Antiguas Historiales del Peru, who in 1628, probably using material from Father Bias Valera (son of a Spaniard and a native woman), wrote a pretty comprehensive chronological history of the Peruvians. In it Montesinos divided the history of the Indians into three main sections. The first division began, according to his chronology, c. 2400 B.C . This was the first Cusco Kingdom. The second division began approximately in the second century A.D . with the capital at Tampu-Toccu. This lasted till the eleventh century A.D ., where the historical Incas ...
