... The Greek fret pattern especially seems to be one of the earliest that men learnt to draw (figure 21). The svastika, as it is called,4 the cross with lines at right angles to each limb, is found everywhere-in India, Greece, Scotland, Peru as a natural bit of Ornament. The allegorising fancy of the Indians gave it a mystic meaning, and the learned have built I know not what worlds of religious theories on the pre-Christian cross, which is probably a piece of arty decorative work with no original mystic meaning at all.5 Mr. Lang overlooked the fact that the swastika had a meaning in ancient Greece. It was sometimes used to ...

... ." More than that, he also points out that Amazonian traditions "speak of a perpetual day rather than a perpetual night." That traditions of the age of darkness are to be found not only in the eastern hemisphere but also in the western and northern hemispheres, I have already documented elsewhere by citing the beliefs held by the Indians of British Columbia and other North American Indians. [27] (There are, in fact, so many such traditions from the western world that, in the work cited, I did not dare present them all for fear of boring the reader to death.) Myths pertaining to Saturn from Mesoamerica are also known. And there ...

... it not a clear inference that they came there in exactly the same way as the minor examples cited? Do not Etna and Vesuvius, the Peak of Teneriffe, the great cluster of terrible volcanoes in Iceland, Stromboli, Ischia Island, Bandaisan and Fujlyama in Japan, and literally hundreds of other volcanic cones in the Atlantic and Pacific and Indian Oceans, owe their existence to exactly the same cause? It is true that we know of no records of any volcanic mountains created within the historical age to equal Etna or even Stromboll in size, for though it might be said that the creation of Jorullo was a modern example of a considerable erection, when millions of tons of ...

... northern localities and found grapes and wild corn, corn growing wild on the low grounds and vines on the hills. "No snow fell during the winter and their cattle remained out in the hills" (p .258). Now whether this Vinland of the Norwegians between 1000 and 1007 (and from whence they were driven by the Indians) was situated in the region of the St. Lawrence River or in Massachusetts, the fact remains that grapes will not grow within anything like the same latitude to-day. They certainly did grow in Massachusetts because the first English settlers who went towards the present Boston found vines growing wild on the hills and Indian corn on the plains ( ...

... turtle were buried in the circle and an eye-shaped symbol was carved to the east of it. It could have functioned as an astronomical observatory and some believe it could have been made over 2000 years ago by the Maya; Mayan-type stone axes were found at the site. Others think it is only 500 years old and the work of indigenous Indians but nothing like it has been found in Florida before. Stone lines, if not circles, are found all over the western states of America. On the Columbia river in Oregon there is a 30 acre complex of walls, pits, cairns and troughs, including alignments of stacked rocks, the date and function being unknown. In ...

... a little more ornamented, the door about the same height from the ground. There was no tradition concerning them, but the Rajah of Jyenegar considered them holy, and had built a small shelter for the great number of his subjects who annually came to worship there. The early Christians can scarcely have had aught to do with these particular Indian pillar-towers, which are those near Bhagalpur that the Jains still frequent for pilgrimage and worship. Indeed Petrie wrote,64 " I am far from wishing to deny that a remarkabae conformity is to be found between many of the Round Towers, whether Christian or Mahomedan, noticed by travellers, and our Irish towers." On the lower ...

... , but served as the pillar of the sky.(23) In the Japanese Kojiki an arrow launched to the sky "made a hole in the heavens. "( 24) But the arrow launched to heaven, or opening a hole in heaven, has acknowledged parallels in the Middle Eastern legends of the warrior Nimrod and in similar Indian and Chinese tales.(25) And there are no geographical limits to the motif. "He Shoots Arrows at the Heavens" is the literal translation of the Aztec Ilhuicamina.(26) The North American trickster Coyote, in numerous traditions, launches arrows toward heaven, and these become a ladder or pathway to the sky. ...

... , disarray, error and errant. In ancient Greece, an "Areopagite" was a seer of Mars, and in later times that title was maintained but the function changed to become a judge of law. In India, in Indic the word for the planet Mars was and is "Indra." From Indic we get India, Indian Ocean, Indian race, and incidentally from "Vishnu", the Romans got "Venus." Thus the "Indo-Aryan" group of languages which includes many dozen tongues, in this sense, can be dubbed the "Mars- Mars" group of languages. The word for Mars in Sanskrit is approximately "Arya". Thus ...

... The theory of plate tectonics usually presents plate movements as being powered by an outward flow of new ocean floor material welling up in giant convection currents of magma. The plate, and any continental material upon it is therefore being pushed away from a spreading centre. Now, however, scientists studying the magnetic patterns of the ocean floor in the Indian Ocean have decided that about 50 Myrs ago, when India collided with Eurasia producing the Himalayas, the plate on which the subcontinent was situated was being pulled towards Eurasia - not pushed at all. Unperturbed, scientists see this as "providing new insight into the driving mechanism of plate tectonics", but there is no sign that they ...
