112. The Relativity Question by Ian McCausland [Journals] [SIS Review]
... publisher and the incredibly incompetent and irrelevant replies from those with distinguished reputations. Several of Dingle's correspondents still withold permission to publish their replies to him. Professor McCausland's book is easy to read and clearly presented, with no mathematics in the text, and presents the central prediction with, possibly, even greater clarity than Dingle himself. Colin Harris Megaliths and Numbers The central tomb and mound of Knowth is surrounded by 15 smaller passage graves. The number 15 may not be significant .. . but on the other hand it might have some kind of hidden meaning. For instance, there were 150 great stones at Avebury, ( = 10 times 15). There were 90 around ...

115. A Failed Excursion to the Caves of Aquitaine [Books] [de Grazia books]
... been done. In one case a 20 X 20 meter area carried an 8 inch band of carbonization; it is explained as the effect of many hearth fires, which I accept. It appears that peat is heavily deposited in Aquitaine. How would this peat relate to Mackie's study of a peat deposit about half a meter deep over a megalith otherwise dated at about 800 B.C .? Neolithic farmsites are found under bogs of peat in Ireland. Over 10 meters of peat formed in the Holocene and is found below the river valley of Eau Claire. Another river running parallel runs on top of a peat bed of the same proportions. La Cluna abri-cave contains a one-meter ...
116. Second SIS Cambridge Conference Report [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... Hoyle & Wickramasinghe, could be substantiated by ground truth in the archaeological, geological, climatological and historical records. Depending on one's chronology and the geographic region under discussion, the Bronze Age started c.3500 BC and continued for two or three thousand years until approximately 1500-500 BC, encompassing not only the main construction phases of Stonehenge and its megalithic counterparts elsewhere, but also the genesis of kingship, priesthood, human and animal sacrifice, the evolution of religious views from polytheism to monotheism and significantly to astronomers a burgeoning interest in the celestial sphere. The heart of the astronomical thesis is that changes in the Earth's near-space astronomical environment, corresponding to the orbital evolution and hierarchical fragmentation of ...
117. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... it was not the eruption of Thera. One possible origin of the Atlantis myth remained, according to Peter James. He suggested that, possibly through the agency of the sea-going Phoenicians or even directly, the Egyptians may have retained some vague recollection of the prehistoric European cultures which were contemporary with their own pre-dynastic period. The distribution of the megalithic monuments and settlements of western Europe and North Africa during the Late Neolithic agrees quite well with the description in Timaeus of the extent of the Atlantean empire. C14 dates have shown that the technology of metal-working was known and practised in Europe before the dynastic period began in Egypt. Moreover, the earliest dates of the massive megalithic structures occur ...
118. The Calendar of Kalasasaya (Built Before the Flood) [Books]
... we can cite an unimpeachable witness of distinct and insistent speech-a Calendar'. Upon the ruin-field of Tiahuanaco, half buried in hardened grey mud, riven but resolute by dint of its mass, there was found the great Gateway which probably led originally to the Sanctissimum of the Sun Temple of Kalasasaya. This pylon is not only a triumph of megalithic architecture, being hewn out of one block of almost glass-hard andesite, about 10 feet high, 122 feet wide, 12 feet thick, and weighing about ten tons,1 it is also a marvel of sculpture, for the upper part of the front of this massive portal is encrusted with stupendously rich and beautifully executed carvings, while ...
119. Pillars of Straw [Journals] [Aeon]
... , or even a totalitarian attempt to employ excess labor? Was it an expression of the masons' own virtuosity- an outlet for their artistic expression in the face of official restriction? Or did it have a forgotten mystical significance?"  Even more astonishing is that, outside of Cuzco, some of these polygonal blocks are megalithic. At Sacsayhuaman, in the hill above Cuzco, one comes across blocks measuring 16 x 151/2 feet, with a thickness of 8 1/2 feet, weighing from 881/2 to 126 tons;  at other places, stones up to 150 tons were used,  and others as heavy ...
120. The Calendar [Journals] [Aeon]
... concept in lieu of the conventional belief in the inaccuracy of the ancient observers and/or recorders? Well, to begin with, one's attention is drawn to a number of temples built around this time which have had their orientation corrected by a small margin of 5 degrees.  Orientations On the west coast of Scotland is a megalithic observatory that has been stated by Euan MacKie to record the solstices by a unique sighting arrangement that allows the viewer the luxury of an exact 90 degrees between the lines of sight.  In a critique of his work, Dwardu Cardona points out that the observatory would work extremely well if it was re-oriented by about 5 degrees ...
