381. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... sun is said to be i ulfakreppu , "in wolf-pinch", attacked by wolves from both sides. From England is reported that sun-dogs , sin-dogs , weather-dogs are names for rainbow-like radiant phenomena in the air, and moon-dogs for dense clouds around the moon. Widely dispersed among most European and Asian nations and among many tribes of Negroes and Indians is the faith that solar and lunar eclipses are caused by some monster swallowing the orb, and among Germans, Rumanians, and southern Slavs this beast is a wolf." As for the Sun Boat, I was probably wrong. In my innocence, I thought that the concept was generally accepted. I remember my teacher talking about ...

382. Problems of Orthodoxy... [Journals] [Kronos]
... To challenge [the facts] or even to propose to re-examine them is heresy, and causes acute pain as in ankylosis. "This is a dangerous symptom for any science, because free thinking is the key to scientific progress. The only requirement of science is concordance with facts and, therefore, it is suggested that a re-examination of Indian chronology is urgently called for - particularly in regard to the absolute dates of important events."

... . Lawrence? Northeastern Algonquian-speaking tribe, which included the Micmac. Could these people have been the "native barbarians" with whom, according to Plutarch, ancient Greek seafarers "settled and intermarried"? (Illustration by John Green.) Dr. Silas Rand, a world-renowned lexicographer, spent nearly a lifetime studying the language of the Micmac Indians of Nova Scotia and Maine, of whom he himself was a descendant. One of the striking facts he discovered in compiling a dictionary of the Micmac language was the prevalence of a large number of Greek word-roots. Rand became convinced of "a former connection between the Micmacs and Europeans who spoke either a language like Greek or Greek itself ...

... judges involved in this incident - there were also Asterion and Abraham: ASTERION (transl. of the Sun') also voted for Hera but did not die. ABRAHAM chose as did Haran but he did not die. His name can translate as father of a multitude' and he seems to bear the name form of Brahma, the Indian Sun-God who was father of a multitude'. Brahma's wife was Sri, while Abraham's was Sarai. Sarai was also called Sarah, while Sri was also called Sara-Svati. Brahma's and Sri's first child Shiva came after a 100 year wait while Isaac, the first child of Abraham and Sarai came when Abraham was 100 years old. To ...

Hence there occurs a great destruction of animals which also extends to the life of man." Hopi Indian legends also tell of pole shifts. According to them, Warlow says, the gods who were in charge of the North and South poles were commanded by the Great Spirit "to leave their posts at the north and south ends of the world's axis, where they were stationed to keep the Earth properly rotating. . . .

... summers and crop failures etc. Could an impact have been responsible, somewhere on the earth - large enough to cause crustal displacement and the movement of plates, a sort of shock wave [5 ]? An actual real rise in sea levels, the water content of the oceans, is difficult to accept. The Maldive Islands in the Indian ocean are only 6 or 7 feet above sea level and Hindu temples of the Gupta period (contemporary with Rome) remain visible and above the shoreline. They currently lie in ruins, largely as a result of neglect following the introduction and conversion of the inhabitants to Islam. The Andaman Islands and the Nicobars in the Bay of Bengal ...

And why would it have persisted well into the Christian era? The planet Saturn, encircled with a RING, formed of serpents, ' a plate in Vol. VII of Indian Antiquities by Thomas Maurice (London, 1800). Illustration: D. Rohl] The Gnostics were the great synthesisers of the Christian world when still in its infancy. They incorporated into the faith of their various sects whatever belief was still current in their day. Thus it is not unusual to discover in their writings an amalgamation of ...

Fiery (bright) Loki3 is the personification of the full Moon, while pale Hel is the new (young) Moon. The Wichita Indians of Oklahoma relate that a chieftain's wife got big with child and after a very short time gave birth to four little monsters. They were very similar and yet distinctly different in shape. A wizard declared that their birth portended terrible calamities. The monsters grew bigger and bigger till at last they seemed to fill all the sky. Now ...

... 2 ] While I will not label Thompson's own efforts as mundane, it seems obvious to me that, through no fault of his, he has fallen into a similar trap. It is not that he is guilty of foisting ancient lore on modern astronomy. He himself does not. Nor does he need to. The compilers of the Indian texts on which he bases his study had already done it for him. What he did not seem to recognize is that the sky the ancients described was entirely different from the present one. What I have to say from here on is not really fair to Thompson because he cannot be faulted for not being cognizant with a theory that ...

The dragon, or devil, is called the chief of the ways of God', and the cryptic letters A and Q, beginning and end, refer to it. In Indian mythology we read that the end of age is announced one million years in advance by a deva'. The word deva', which means brightly shining one', is strangely assonant with devil' and divine'; it is more than that: it is cognate. The Biblical evidence, that devil' comes only from the ...
