301. The Sacred Circuit [Books]
... In the Scottish Highlands, for instance, the newly-born sun of Summer, the "big sun " 1 is supposed to "dance" and whirl round three times to the right on May Day (Beltane) The sun thus imitates the "dancing Dervishes "who gave the "Great Bear" a lead. In Arizona the Navaho Red Indians dance to stop the sun at the winter solstice, lest it should move too far southward.2 Evidently they had taken over an ancient ceremony of the sun cult. But, as we have seen, they, too, had stellar beliefs, and placed their "whirling logs" in the north of the sky. In Gaelic ...

... world. "Similar emergence [of coast]," according to Daly, "is found along the Atlantic Coast from New York to the Gulf of Mexico; for at least 1,000 miles along the coast of eastern Australia; along the coast of Brazil, southwest Africa, and many islands of the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans." Philip H. Kuenen, of Leyden University, in his Marine Geology, confirmed Daly's claim: "In thirty-odd years following Daly's first paper many further instances have been recorded by a number of investigators the world over, so that this recent shift is now well established."(3 ) As for the time of ...
303. The World Ages, Prologue Ch.2 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... to world catastrophes. "The most ancient of these fragments [katuns or calendar stones of Yucatan] refer, in general, to great catastrophes which, at intervals and repeatedly, convulsed the American continent, and of which all nations of this continent have preserved a more or less distinct memory."(15) Codices of Mexico and Indian authors who composed the annals of their past give a prominent place to the tradition of world catastrophes that decimated humankind and changed the face of the earth. In the chronicles of the Mexican kingdom it is said: "The ancients knew that before the present sky and earth were formed, man was already created and life had manifested itself ...

... their own. Most of these books were burned in the sixteenth century by the Dominican monks. Very few of the ancient manuscripts survived, and these are preserved in the libraries of Paris, the Vatican, the Prado, and Dresden; they are called codici, and their texts have been studied and partly read. However, among the Indians of the days of the conquest and also of the following century there were literary men who had access to the knowledge written in pictographic script by their forefathers.(2 ) In the Mexican Annals of Cuauhtitlan(3 )the history of the empire of Culhuacan and Mexico, written in NahuaIndian in the sixteenth century- it is related ...

... From: The Riddle of Prehistoric Britain by Comyns Beaumont CD Home | Contents Part One: Britain's Great Antiquity Chapter IX The Astronomical Doctrine Of Hermes "Without chronology we should obtain no history even from the most varied literature; the Indians especially give us a most striking proof of this. But a chronology which is well arranged and established must always proceed from astronomy." DR. RICHARD LEPSIUS. HERMES was credited with the invention of astronomy, and, it was said, "mapped out the heavens", which really signified that the seers and sages among the Druids discovered the true movements of the earth, devised the Solar Ecliptic, designed the zodiac of the twelve ...

... , a new sun and a new moon were placed in the sky.(8 ) Caius Julius Solinus writes that "following the deluge which is reported to have occurred in the days of Ogyges, a heavy night spread over the globe." (9 ) In the manuscripts of Avila and Molina, who collected the traditions of the Indians of the New World, it is related that the sun did not appear for five days; a cosmic collision of stars preceded the cataclysm; people and animals tried to escape to mountain caves. "Scarcely had they reached there when the sea, breaking out of bounds following a terrifying shock, began to rise on the Pacific coast ...

... written: "Examining into antiquity, we find that the Emperor Yaou was called Fang-heun.",(18) Yahou was a surname given to him in the time following the flood, apparently inspired by the sound of the earth's groaning. The same sound was heard in those years in the Western Hemisphere or wherever the ancestors of the Indians then lived. They relate that once when the heavens were very close to the earth, all mankind lifted the sky little by little at the repeated shouting "Yahu," which rang all over the world.(19) In Indonesia an oath is accompanied by the invocation of the heavenly bodies. An arrow is shot toward the ...
310. Brains Trust - Chronology and Ancient History [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the colossal Valles Marineris scar on Mars, which has more than 2 million cubic kilometres of material removed. Some of it seems to have crashed back, which explains why Mars is rock strewn wherever spacecraft have landed, but some went into the asteroid belt and some was dumped on Earth. Mars was known as scarface' by North American Indians after it was struck by one of Jupiter's thunderbolts, so the Earth was close enough to receive Martian debris. Consequently geology has to look at a couple of mechanisms that have never before been considered. One is the dumping of material from space at intervals to form global strata. Another one is the creation of radioactive material as a ...
