... living spirit." Their Adam was Adam the "Red," or the Sun. In Genesis we are told "Male and female created he them." The Mohammedan tradition affirms that the body of Adam was at first a figure of clay that was forty years in drying, and then the Creator endowed it with breath. (Koran ch. lv.) Many are the traditions of a first Adam or that which his name symbolized. The Biblical account of the war in heaven is explained astronomically, when Typhon and Sut, or the Northern constellation of The Bear and the glowing Dog-Star in the south proved false in their time reckoning, causing their own degradation, ...

... orbis terrarum. It will perhaps one day be recognised-for present interpretations are not alone lame but inconsistent-that the Avestan water-stars Tishtrya and Satavaesa were originally polar constellations, or the same or successive polestars, each in turn the navel of the waters ; and perhaps we might join with them the Lord of the "dog-star" in Chapter 53 of Sale's Koran; for it does not appear that there is any special reason for connecting the Cais tribe of Arabs, who worshipped the star in question, with a totemic dog. Even if there were, the dogs at the heaven-bridge connect ' G. Schlegel : tlrauag. Chi., 208. 860 The Night of the Gods. ( ...

... interpretations. "Even in modern times we can observe the widespread use of the magic effect of writing. Here we may mention the phylacteries with sacred writings which the Jews wear during prayer, and the inscrip-tions on the doorposts of Jewish houses which are supposed to protect the inhabitants from harm. The Moham-medans carry amulets with enclosed verses from the Koran. Among Christians we find the custom of fanning a sick person with the leaves of the Bible, or of having him swallow a pellet of paper with a prayer written on it." (1 ) In societies where knowledge of writing is highly restricted, its sacredness and magical character is particularly emphasized. "The ancient Near East ...

... eastern and southern exterior corners of the shrine - the Black Stone and the Yamani Stone. The former is the more famous of the two. Twelve inches in diameter, it is set in a silver plaque cemented to the corner. The shrine is all but completely encased within the kiswah, a tightly encircling curtain of black cloth embroidered with Koranic verses which is renewed each year. The kiswah is slightly drawn up at the bottom to reveal the base of the Kaaba, the door, and the two holy stones. Today, the small building rests within the vast courtyard of the Great or Sacred Mosque, properly called al-Masjid al Haram, an imposing edifice boasting seven minarets. ...

... of Esau: this would place him in the same pre-Exodus period as if he were a son of Issachar. Jewish tradition also places the friends of Job generally as pre-Exodus, having Bildad, Zophar and Elibu as grandsons of Buz the son of Esau. Job figures in Islamic tradition, too. He is mentioned in several suras of the Koran as the servant of Allah who underwent hardship (4 :161; 21:83-4; 38:40-43). Some held that he was a Rumi, an Edomite, living in the time of Lot, Abraham, Jacob or Ephraim, his wife being the daughter of Jacob. (While the Arabic tradition wrongly assumes this to ...

A journalist has written:'... for sheer extravagant implausibility, nothing in theology or metaphysics can hold a candle to the [Big] Bang. Surely, if this description of the cosmic genesis came from the Bible or the Koran rather than the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, it would be treated as a preposterous myth' [1 ] . A few professionals [2 ], like the astronomers Halton Arp, Sir Fred Hoyle and Tom van Flandern, do so treat it. Van Flandern has listed on his website the Top Ten Problems with the Big Bang [ ...

... with disastrous ecological experience. Myth-analysis goes hand in hand with a reconstructed natural history to permit great advances in translating symbols and making sense out of the apparently senseless. This will be true not only of so- called primitive and ancient myth, but also of the great bodies of material summed up in the Bible, the Vedas, the Koran, and other sacred religio-moral- historical works. If one effect of massive collective shock is the suppression of memory, another effect is the partly conscious and vigorous design of methods for ridding humans of the impressions and anxieties bubbling up from the repressed memories. This is commonly accomplished by diversionary, symbolically loaded activity. The study of religious ...
