341. Years Of Ten Months, Part 2 Mars Ch.8 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... The Toradja of the Dutch East Indies compute time in moon-months. Each year, however, a period of two or three months is not brought into the computation at all, and is omitted in time reckoning.13 The Chams of Indo-China have a calendar of only ten months to the year.14 The natives in some islands of the Indian Ocean also observe ten months to the year.15 The aborigines of New Zealand do not count two months in the year. "These two months are not in the calendar: they do not reckon them; nor are they in any way accounted for."16 "Among the Yoruba of South Nigeria the three months- February ...
342. A Hemisphere Travels Southward, Part 2 Mars Ch.7 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... north of 68 about 130 miles within the Arctic Circle.4 "Ipiutak, as the location of this ancient city is called by the present Eskimos, must have been built before the Christian era; two thousand years is thought a conservative estimate of its age. The excavations have yielded beautiful ivory carvings unlike any known Eskimo or other American Indian culture of the northern regions. Fashioned of logs, the strange tombs gave up skeletons which stared up at the excavators with artificial eyeballs carved of ivory and inlaid with jet. . . . Numerous delicately mad e and engraved implements, also found in the graves, resembled some of those produced in North China two or three thousand years ...

344. Moderating the Middle Ages [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Lynn E. Rose [5 ]. ) What of chronologies of other cultures? In asking Did the early Middle Ages exist? ' Niemitz notes a 300 year question in Parsee chronology; similarly Fomenko notes that Sassanid tradition separated Alexander the Great from the Sassanids by 226 years but modern historians have increased this to 557 years. Also, Indian chronology and history are completely dependent upon Roman and Greek and are restructured from these' - he refers us to D. Kosambi's The Culture and Civilization of Ancient India in Historical Outline [6 ]. Fomenko began by listing the qualifications of early Soviet historian N.A . Morozov which stand up well beside those of most western historians ...
345. Flawed Search [Journals] [Kronos]
... a foresight for the southern major standstill moonrise, is inexcusable. Eddy's chapter on North America is the only one in the book where a sensible caution appears. His balanced view of other's work is exemplified by his regard for the archaeology as equally important as the astronomy in the analysis of the Chaco Canyon structures. His own work on the Indian medicine wheels is a model of careful and logical procedure. The same cannot be said of Aveni's chapter on Mesoamerica, where sites a millennium and several hundred miles apart are grouped on the basis of their similar orientation. The use in this chapter of words like "nearly", "close to" and "approximate" when describing ...

... e . when the `full moon' first appeared in the heavens; many myths of that transposition type are known), and fought a great war for the possession of the country. They referred to the mythical country in the east, `Tulan' Zuiva, as `the land of their ancestral gods'. Some North American Indian tribes, for instance the Delawares, call the homeland of their forefathers Tula'. Similarly, also with non-nasalized ending, on our side of the Atlantic we find an echo in the word Thule', which was used by ancient geographers to denote a far-distant, ever elusive island (the original reference was not to Iceland). ...
348. The Garden, the Fall and the Restoration [Articles]
... They lived like gods and knew neither sorrow nor toil, neither were they subject to hatred, they spent their time in leisure, apart from evil. The bounteous Earth bore fruit for them in plenty and without stint." In China, we find the same sort of legends. .. . Then we go on to the Hopi Indians: "The first people, with the pristine wisdom granted them, they understood that the Earth was a living entity like themselves .. . They knew no sickness .. ."

350. Velikovsky & Saturnists & the Gods [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... It is an undeniable fact that Saturn- like Venus and Mars- loomed large in ancient myth and religion. Why this should be the case is the question. Certainly nothing about Saturn's appearance today would warrant it being described as a "sun". And yet this was the very name applied to it by the ancient Babylonians, Greeks, and Indians. Tim, apparently, would have us believe that "the mere fact that Saturn moved at all would have impressed the heck out of them." Right. Saturn, like all the other planets, moved and thus the ancients were inspired to call it- alone among the planets- the "sun" (Helios, Shamash, etc ...
