41. Saturnists Play Marbles [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... the dove definitely symbolizes Venus. This possibility was first raised by Dave to me in a private conversation. At the time, it rang a familiar chord since I knew Nergal and Apollo were symbolized by ravens. Since that time I have found that virtually every Martian hero was given a raven form, the most obvious example being the American Indian hero Raven. Dwardu Adds: And don't forget the Egyptian Horus. Tia Acheson Asks: Raven was Mars? I thought Raven was the creator, the ruler, the wisest one. Wouldn't that be Saturn? So tell me who was Saturn in the American Indian legends? Dave T Answers: Yes, in later accounts it is ...

42. Sky Woman [Journals] [Aeon]
... with smooth, fair hair." [14] The Star Woman cycle is attested amongst various different tribes native to the Gran Chaco region, including the Apinaye, Chorote, Makka, Mocoví, and Toba among others. Of the Star Woman myth in general, the anthropologist Alfred Métraux wrote: "This tale is very popular with Chaco Indians, and it is generally the first story they tell when asked about their folklore." [15] The Chamacoco narrative finds a close parallel amongst the Chorote. Here, too, a mortal of groteseque appearance formed the object of Venus' affections: "There was a man who was so ugly that no woman wanted him. ...

' It makes a terrible noise; that is why the dragon is usually called the thunder-bird' in myths of the North American Indians. It sends abroad asphyxiating stinks. All that comes of the dragon is bad. Its blood is poison. Out of its teeth spring up armed men. The dragon is a power of evil and of night, the archenemy of good and of light. It causes much destruction; the Earth trembles, the hills are cloven, ...

44. Cuban Prehistory [Journals] [Kronos]
... , and sponsored by KRONOS Other papers from this seminar will be also appearing in the pages of KRONOS.- LMG (Translation from the presentation in Spanish by Jack W. Pockman.) The prehistory of Cuba is shrouded in mystery. Unlike the great cosmological civilizations, of what the first Iberian conquerors and explorers called Tierra Firme, the Indian peoples of Cuba and adjacent islands of the Caribbean left no vast monumental ritual and urban centers, nor did they possess any system of inscriptions such as the Mayan glyphs that still tantalize scholars, ranging from classical archaeology to computational cryptology. Strangely, in view of the proximity of Cuba's westernmost extension to the Yucatan peninsula, there is not ...

... , in disguise, entered Heaven in his mortal body, not having tasted death. Among minor common traits, Warner stresses particularly these: Both journey into the mountains with a devoted band, the number of them is the same in both cases, and both are accompanied by a divine being, for the part of the dog in the Indian legend is indicated in the Iranian as being taken by Surush, the angel of Urmuzd. In both, the leaders pass deathless into Heaven, and in both their mortal comrades perish. One legend therefore must be derived from the other, or else, and this seems to be the better opinion, they must be referred to a ...

... (129) A similar passage is the following: "Loud roared the mighty Hero's bolt of thunder, when he, the Friend of man, burnt up the monster." (130) Like the wheel of Surya, Indra's weapon early on became identified with many a terrestrial wheel. Indeed such symbolism played a prominent role in early Indian ritual. Here Sparreboom observes: The chariot was used during Indra's vrtrahatya (cf. RV VI.18.9 ), his killing Vrtra by means of his vajra. In the explanatory system of the brahmanas, the term vajra is popular in any identification which is made for explaining an act of aggression, but it seems to ...

... whom Arriaga speaks, became Christians, they replaced the name of Son of Thunder, given to one of the twins, by the name of Santiago, having learnt from their Spanish (missionary) teachers that St. James (Santiago) and St. John had been called Sons of Thunder by our Lord, a phrase which these Peruvian Indians seem to have understood, where the great commentators of the Christian Church had missed the meaning . . .

... for this is that the Krttikas was the constellation of the vernal equinox at the time, thereby also placing the date at about 2300 BC [44]. As a connective point, Worthen feels that the ple' in the Pleiades is probably from an Indo-European form meaning first' [45]. The Mahabharata is the greatest of the Indian epics, centering around the events of the Bharata War, involving cosmological conflicts between the gods during which the earth suffered great damage. Although the epic is written in a historical/legendary style, it contains a great deal of mythology. Wikander and Dumezil, leading scholars in this field, have stated their opinions that pre-Vedic as well ...
