41. The Timna Test [Aeon Journal $]
... above proposition underscores a classic academic miscue in defiance of logic. The issue is not whether signs of Israel's greatest King are evident in the region, but how is it possible for there to be no trace of three hundred years of a nation's history where, for so much of that time, the subject region was an integral part of her sovereign territory? Moreover, this territory did not merely serve as a corridor to the Red Sea port of Ezion-Geber, which had been substantially upgraded to accommodate the comings and goings of an Indian Ocean fleet, but also as one leading to the many governed dependencies listed as having dotted the region. Scholarly acceptance of such peculiar dictums is really quite incredible and should have immediately signaled that some of the criteria leading to the accepted conclusion were awry. While Timna does serve as a tour de force of the best in archaeological techniques, it is at the same time just another in a series of regrettable examples of the extent to which such fine work can be devalued through adoption of poor history. This can be stated ...
42. The Flood [The Velikovskian $]
... of the Earth, provided by the presence of whale remains and other marine organisms found in inland regions. If the floods originally flowed north from their equatorial ocean basins and into the Arctic Ocean, then flowed back over the land, they would produce the above-mentioned topography and would generate the burial of Pleistocene fauna hetacombs. However, if such ocean floods flowed into the Arctic, they would carry along an immense amount of detritus. The Arctic Ocean would still retain this load of material and, compared to the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans, would contain greater depths of sediment. This has been proven: "The Arctic [Ocean contains four depressions of oceanic depth which, unlike other oceans, hold large volumes of sediment." (74) (Emphasis added.) Why should only the Arctic Ocean basin be covered by great amounts of sediment if these were produced, by uniformitarian processes, in exactly the same way as in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans? The Arctic Ocean is no older than the other oceans. Only a global, ...
43. An Integrated Model for an Earthwide Event at 2300 BC. Part I: The Archaeological Evidence [SIS C&C Review $]
... a western Asian origin [81, but I have not found evidence to link this with any movements of peoples. The appearance of two distinct Neolithic cultures in north and south India respectively is also identified at this time. There is only one dated site, Burzahom, in the north for the Kashmir culture. Although limited calibrated radiocarbon data places the initial site around 2400 BC in one source, the starting date is defined at about 2300 BC by a second source. The Kashmir culture appears to be a unique culture having no Indian parallels, but having affinities with the Neolithic cultures of northern China and central Asia. It seems to have coexisted with Harappan and with other Chalcolithic cultures in the region. For the southern culture, there are ten sites with much higher quality dating. Utnur Phase IB at about 2300 BC is the earliest dated site for the southern culture. This culture apparently also coexisted with the Harappan culture [82. Europe There are no reports of site destruction around 2300 BC in Europe, although there is extensive evidence of widespread cultural disruptions ...
44. The Cosmic Mountain [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... the primordial foundation of Egyptian and Mesopotamian cosmologies. The Satapatha Brahmana locates the post in the centre of the sacrifice shed (Sadas), itself a symbol of the Cosmos. The participants in the ritual form a circle around the post and touch it with the words, "Here is stability... Here is joy." (89) The cosmic post, Eliade informs us, was the axis of the world. By mystically ascending the celestial pillar the sacrificer attained the cosmic centre and summit. (90) The Indian world pillar, whether considered as a cosmic mountain (Meru) or as a pole or stake reaching from earth to heaven, is that which sustains the central sun. Buddhist iconography reviewed by Coomaraswamy depicts the wheel of the "sun" raised upon a cosmic column called "the pillar of fire." (91) To the solar mythologists the pillar can only be in the east, the direction of sunrise. Yet Coomaraswamy writes: "The wheel is supported by a column, the Axis of the Universe." ...
45. IGNIS E COELO [Mythopedia Website]
... the rebound of the wing making the thunder, while the twinkling of his eyes is the lightning; the large black stones found in the country are the Thunder í s arrows [19. The Natchez Indians of the Lower Mississippi say that after the flood a little bird named CoŁy-oŁy, which is entirely red, brought the fire from heaven [20. The Hurons too acknowledge a spirit of thunder, lightning and rain, who is called Onditachiae and described as partially human and partially turkey cock [21. The Sioux and other Indian tribes of the Mississippi have a tradition that after the great flood the man and woman who alone survived the catastrophe received fire from a little grey bird [22 The motif of the flashing eye is dealt with in an article published in Aeon by Ev Cochrane. Significantly, the North-American Thunder Bird appears to have been more than a marginal divinity: in many mythologies he occupies a central position and plays the role of the Hero. In a tradition from the northwest coast, the Thunder Bird is described as a form of Raven ...
46. Child of Saturn (Part IV) [Kronos $]
... found their two great nations: Media (later Persia, now Iran) and India. Whatever the exact nature of the original beliefs of the Aryan race, their cosmogonical faith followed different routes and processes of evolution in the various regions within which they settled. The religious concepts of the indigenous populations, which they either conquered or assimilated, in turn infiltrated their original dogmas. Today there is little extant that can be considered common to the mythologies of the Indo-Aryans, the ancient Medes, and later Persians. Judging by Vedic (Indian) and Avestan (Persian) literature, the Aryans seem to have brought the worship of Indra, Mit(h)ra, Agni, and Soma with them. In the kingdom of the Mitanni, the gods Mit(h)ra, Varuna, Indra, and the Nasatyas were mentioned in an extant treaty. If there were other deities common to these three nations, the mists of time and the later teachings of Zarathustra seem to have buried them. But even when it comes to these few common divinities, ...
47. THE LATELY TORTURED EARTH: PART III: HYDROLOGY: 14.Floods and Tides [Quantavolution Website]
... a gigantic tidal wave that never came. Yet the wave wiped out other villages not far away and raced across the oceans to frighten Indians and Africans. There are parts of the Aegean islands that were scarcely mounted by the towering wall of water that set out with hurricane speed from Thera-Santorini around 1000 B. C. Tides rip, cross, translate, and in other ways convey their force. During the flood of Manu (Saturnian flood, probably about 4000 B. C.) hurricanes and turbulence surrounded the boat of the Indian Noah. The skies are full of motion and the mover's body is itself moving. The atmospheric is raging with currents of wind and electricity. The Earth itself is moving. The celestial actors in the scene are imposing or withdrawing forces. Hence, exoterrestrially induced tides will not behave so simply as tides operate with the regular passage of the Moon or of a single earthquake. They will draw startling geometric figures. No one would have been more amazed than the Jews themselves, to have survived the double-walled water passage into Sinai ...
48. Solar System Studies (Part 2) [Aeon Journal $]
... In a sphere the X, Y and Z radii are the same. In an oblate spheroid the X and Y radii are equal and greater than the Z radius. In a triaxial spheroid the X, Y and Z radii are each different from the others. In a hemisphere centered over Tahiti most of the solid surface is 5 km below the sea level of the Pacific Ocean except for continental fringes and a host of volcanic islands. The opposite hemisphere centered within Sudan contains almost all the continental land area plus the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. The lithosphere in the latter hemisphere is up to 7 km higher than the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, including its deep trenches. The interface between these two hemispheres is the famed volcanic ring of fire which extends in a great circle along the west coasts of the Americas, the Aleutian Islands and down the East coasts of Asia at least to Indonesia. What titanic long-term pull created a lop-sided Earth? The second component of the triaxial shape is simple. Due to the Earth's spin rate (24 hours), ...
49. On the Pendulum Experiment (Vox Popvli) [Kronos $]
... book and in Fate, which has eluded citation by most scientists and journalists, is that the mammoths lacked the oil glands which are essential for adaptation to extreme cold. How could this fact escape notice? While Sanderson asserted the inadequacy of fur and fat, he did not mention the lack of oil glands. In The Path of the Pole, Charles H. Hapgood quotes H. Neuville on the lack of the oil glands.(8) Neuville, a French zoologist and dermatologist, compared the skin of the mammoth and Indian elephant and found them to be identical except for the amount of hair.(9) Neuville was not pursuing catastrophic ends so he attributed the mammoths' extinction to progressive degeneration and lack of adaptation to cold, aggravated by other causes. Now, according to Farrand, I. P. Tolmachoff "wrote a very complete summary of the information available in 1929", upon which Farrand relied for most of his early information.(10) As it turns out, Tolmachoff, for whatever reason, did not cite Neuville ...
50. Earth Tectonics Viewed from Rock Mechanics [SIS C&C Review $]
... and the other at 60 degrees to the left of the direction of the incident fracture. This type of bifurcation is designated BTB. Again, the branches are at 120 degrees from each other in an homogeneous brittle solid driven and accelerated in strength by a uniform stress. Angles between branches can differ from 120 degrees when forces are not being applied uniformly in all directions and/or with inhomogeneities in the solid. BTB's are marked in Figure 1 by C, and Figure 5 shows a BTB in the Grand Canyon near Supai (Indian) Village. When two or more BTB's join together, the pattern is designated CTB. Repeated CTB's produce hexagons in uniform solid fracture. Their size varies inversely as the strength of the driving force. Arrays of hexagonal fractures are often seen in broken glass. Coupled CTB's are marked once in Figure 1 by D. ii). Single Branch (SB) and Coupled Single Branch (CSB) Tensile Fracture In many cases where a BTB might be expected, the result is, instead, a single branch or SB fracture ...
