171. The Knossos Labyrinth - a new view of the 'Palace of Minos' at Knossos [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... little thought, can do far better. The Cretan goddess, with her naked breasts and flounced skirts, wielding snakes or holding her arms raised to the sky, standing on a mountain and flanked by lions, is no simple Aphrodite but a composite world pillar and avenging Ishtar. Her association with the double axe reminds us of the unknown megalithic goddess, guardian of the tomb, and represented by a monolith often carved with breasts and an axe symbol. The other powerful symbol at Knossos, the bull, will need little further consideration by catastrophists to place it squarely as the bull of heaven. Even its obvious connection with Poseidon as bull of the sea only raises it once ...
172. Easter Island - the mystery solved [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the pre-Incan peoples of Peru are still dismissed as insignificant, but Heyerdahl proves, to my satisfaction at least, that the original settlers of Easter Island came from a culture centred around Tiahuanaco in the Peruvian Andes. Possibly two waves of people settled the island from this direction after wars at home. They brought with them their religion and their megalithic statue culture and were only joined much later by people from Polynesia who functioned more like slaves until they revolted during the period immediately after the first European intrusion upon the island. The mystery is therefore pushed one stage further. Kontiki, a legendary ruler of Tiahuanaco, led his followers to the coast and sailed westwards. On the northern ...
173. The Lost History of Ireland: an enquiry into the pre-Christian History of the Gaels' by Emmet J. Sweeney [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Baal/Venus) in a legend which almost exactly matches the Greek myth of Perseus and Medusa. There were even Irish athletic matches, the Aonach Tailteann corresponding to the Greek Olympiads held, like the Greek ones, in August and apparently founded at a similar time, shortly before the arrival of the Gaels. The building of the great megaliths and stone circles is dated by Sweeney to the 8th and 7th centuries BC (to which centuries he also dates the Pyramids) and he refers to Irish tradition that the circles are beltanies' - dedicated to the Fire of Beal' (help!). Beal corresponds to Baal, Belinos and the Greek Apollo. Not only is ...
174. Moons, Myths and Man [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the eating of castrated pigs appears to imply the consumption of a god. Bellamy's treatment of Genesis Chapter I is extremely good but generally he fails to perceive the beauty of a cycle of recurring disasters (as perceived by Velikovsky and by Clube and Napier) and towards the end of the book he gives quite unbelievable treatments of Atlantis, the megaliths and various other garbled ideas. The book is readily available through the inter-library exchange system (my copy came from a library store in Dorking, Surrey and hardly appeared to have been lent out at all over the past 20 years). Phillip Clapham, April 1993. According to the Independent on Sunday, 4th April 1993, an ...
175. Ancient Astronauts [Books] [de Grazia books]
... aeronautical direction-finding" is contained in them, it is more suited to a Piper Cub plane than a space vehicle. They may have been laid out under instruction from heat-lofted balloons or from look-out points on heights. Theoretical geometricians could also achieve the patterns, and may have ordered them along the lines of meteorite falls. All ancient monuments- megaliths, pyramids, temples- were skyoriented; the Nazca lines may have followed star-lines, also. There remains a possibility that only the theory of Solaria Binaria permits. I mentioned this theory in a talk to the Society for Interdisciplinary Studies in London in 1975 and have since developed the model in collaboration with Professor Earl R. Milton. ...
176. The Obliteration of Human Signs [Books] [de Grazia books]
... time of Stonehenge about 3500 years ago there were a million people in Britain (for they were building other sites as well and carrying on the chores of living), and if we find no sign of them, either we have not searched very well, or there was some catastrophe that erased all signs. The very existence of the megaliths does, however, discount the notion of complete disaster- there were no Washington Scablands barrier-bursting floods, or giant oceanic tsunamis or Biblical overturning of mountains. And of there were a few utensils found, as there have been, and even more remarkable, a few bones (unfortunately yet not found), we should say that certain ...
177. Ishtar, Isis, Baal and the Aten [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... (see letter published on p. 23 of C&CR 1994:1 ). Note that the first mention of the name Ramesses in Egyptian literature (Ramesses I) occurs fairly soon after the collapse of El-Amarna, again requiring that pyramid building activity came after the collapse of El-Amarna (i .e . firmly in the widely recognised megalithic building era), rather than before it. This somewhat provisional analysis clearly pre-supposes at least partial abandonment of the concept of the Egyptian Old, Middle and New' kingdoms, probably also a revision of the archaeological periods currently designated Bronze, Iron etc. '. Both concepts have obviously been useful in their time but I suggest that ...
178. The Selection of the Site (Built Before the Flood) [Books]
... then! There is, for instance, the fortress' of Ollantay-Parubo, in the Urubamba Valley in Peru, impregnable because of its position, being perched upon a tiny plateau of some 13 000 feet above sea-level, in an uninhabitable region of precipices, chasms, and gorges, and indestructible because of its construction, being mostly built of megalithic, smoothly polished blocks of red porphyry. The material must have been brought from a considerable distance in a terrain which even modern transport technicians would shun to tackle-down steep slopes, across swift and turbulent rivers, and up precipitous rock-faces which hardly allow a foothold. But if water-transport across a fiord like arm of a sea is supposed, ...
