91. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , is held over to a later issue. Thom Stones Those following the work of Prof. Alexander Thom may like to know of a review article by Prof. R. J. C. Atkinson which appeared recently in the Journal for the History of Astronomy (Vol. VI, 1975, pp. 42-52). Under the title Megalithic Astronomy - a Prehistorian's Comments', he reviews eight papers published in the Journal between 1971 and 1974, describing Thom's findings at several sites including Carnac, Orkney, Islay and Stonehenge. Atkinson accepts Thom's interpretation of the great fallen stone Er Grah at Carnac as being sited to serve as a common foresight for observations of the lunar standstills ...

... the proceedings: Is the radioactive decay "constant" really constant? (Most likely not, according to Dr. John Lynde Anderson.) Could planetary orbits have reversed their order of distance from the Sun in historical times? (Yes, if you are listening to Prof. Robert W. Bass, celestial mechanician.) Do the megalithic monuments in the United Kingdom bespeak catastrophes or uniformitarianism? (More research is needed, says Scotland's Dr. Euan MacKie.) Do the ancient Mesoamerican civilizations and folklore show evidence of Velikovskian catastrophes? (The case is good, claims Dr. William Mullen.) "Catastrophism has in recent years emerged as an interesting and respectable alternative ...

... with the Sun: considering that only 9 sungrazing comets had been observed in the past 300 years this came as a surprise to astronomers. It had always been believed that comets never came close enough to the Sun to be destroyed and clearly there has to be some rethink of the physics of comet-Sun interaction as a result of these findings. Megalithic "Earth Energy"source: New Scientist 21.10.82, pp. 166-9 These days even respectable scientific publications like New Scientist are allowed to go in for "fringe" material, so it should raise no eyebrows to see a report of an investigation into the "earth energy" of megalithic structures. The investigation is ...

... the northernmost position of the setting Moon. A lunar calendar was in use in pre-Roman Britain and therefore changes in the heavens due to wobbles in the rotation, or even in the speed of rotation (explained fully in the book), may underscore the obvious obsession in tracking the Moon that Alexander Thom brought to light from his study of megalithic sites, mainly in Scotland. The puzzling lunar observatories, as he called them, were mostly built shortly after 2300 BC. In China of the same period, two court astronomers arrived at 366 days for the length of the year. Thom claimed that Moon watchers kept track of the extreme positions of moon rise and moon set. ...
96. The Olympian Rulers [Books] [de Grazia books]
... The physical presence of Saturnian cultures, like the Uranian, had been practically obliterated. Huge stone and brick structures were erected in Middle Americas, Mesopotamia Egypt and elsewhere. These coupled a rapidly redeveloped service of astronomy to the frantic needs of absolute rulers and priesthoods for protection against deluges and for electrical roadways to heaven. Tunnels, mazes, megaliths, ziggurats, and pyramids were built. The time was after 5700 B.P .( 3700 B.C .) . Copper was dug, and bronze and brass were made of it, with the help of tin and lead. Euan MacKie's work on megalithic cultures places this immense human effort, that is today exhibited in ...
97. The Goddess of the Stones and the Charged Cosmic Body [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1991 No 2 (Jan 1992) Home | Issue Contents The Goddess of the Stones and the Charged Cosmic Body by Eric Crew The Goddess of the Stones: The Language of the Megaliths, by G.T . Meaden (Souvenir Press, 1991) Archaeological remains appear to relate to striking physical phenomena, giving rise to activities of ancient peoples based on supernatural beliefs. This article examines the merits of two very different hypotheses concerning ubiquitous rock carvings; one based on meteorological processes and the other on an event in astronomy. Both may be applicable; time will tell. An account of the views relating to the astronomical matters, giving ...

... trees and huge logs lying in the sandstones' suggest the denudation of thickly forested' areas. Animals met death and extinction by the elementary forces of nature which also uprooted forests and from Kashmir to Indo-China threw sand over species and genre in mountains thousands of feet high. "In the Andes, at 16o 22' south latitude, a megalithic city was found at an elevation of 12,500 feet, in a region where corn will not ripen. The term megalithic' fits the dead city only in regard to the great size of the stones in its walls, some of which are flattened and joined with precision. It is situated on the Altiplano, the elevated plain ...

... ecologically significant secular climate change since about 7000 B.C . (ibid., p. 74), preferring the view that "major changes an climate have caused the great upheavals in the Near East" (p . 418). 4. For a lucid criticism of the philosophical implications of Renfrew's views, see Euan MacKie's The Megalith Builders (Phaidon, 1977). pp. 133-145. Disagreeing with Renfrew, MacKie stresses the evidence for the diffusion of culture among the megalith building societies of Europe, ascribing the spread of skills (in architecture and astronomy) from Iberia to "a stable caste of professional priests and wise men who settled among, and came to ...

... ago (after the last of the catastrophic shifts, as argued by Velikovsky) seem to have remained fixed in relation to the present skies, while those built before then appear to have moved. Certain claims of "fixed" structures warrant study. The most famous is the Great Pyramid in Egypt. Recently, the Stonehenge megalithic "astronomical observatory" has also been widely discussed. The age of the Great Pyramid of Ghiza is in question. It has been ascribed to around 3200 B.C . and to other times. But no one suggests that it was built after 687 B.C . or for that matter after 1450 B.C . that ...
