182. Graham Hancock Position Statement [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... the Duat sky-region (through which the Pharaohs believed that their souls would travel after death) as that sky-region appeared at dawn on the spring equinox in the epoch of 10,500 BC. Citing the geological findings of John Anthony West and Robert Schoch, we have argued, and continue to maintain, that the Great Sphinx and its associated megalithic structures may actually have been built in that distant epoch. We have also argued, and continue to maintain, that the three great pyramids in general are likely to be much younger than the Sphinx and that they should probably be assigned to the Fourth Dynasty (rather than to any other period) because of the alignments of the star ...

185. Straka: Science or Anti-Science? [Journals] [Pensee]
... Cycle claimed by Hawkins (Martin, et al.). (More about this may be read in Velikovsky's paper, "Decoding Hawkins' Stonehenge Decoded," in the May, 1972, Pensée. A future issue of Pensée will carry a paper by Dr. Euan MacKie, University of Glasgow, concerning the alignments claimed for various megalithic monuments by Thom and others.) Straka asks how the stones of Stonehenge might remain in their places while the walls of Jericho fell. Stonehenge Today and Yesterday, by Frank Stevens, curator of Salisbury Museum (London, 1936), provides the answer: "At first it may seem difficult to disentangle the chaos of fallen stone ...
186. De Grazian Discography (Reviewed) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... astronomy confirms that though geological mayhem appears to have been the rule throughout the solar system, the physical evidence for recent orbital changes is wholly negative. The Best Buy' in neocatastrophism at the moment remains Clube and Napier's giant comet. The scientific plausibility of this at least allows progress to be made in all our areas of interest, from megalithic astronomy to archaeology and mythology. It even allows Duncan Steel to repeat Velikovsky's proposal that the pyramids were air-raid shelters', without risk of dismissal from his astronomical post! However, much of the work of pioneers of exoterrestrial catastrophe remains valid whichever celestial perpetrator is eventually found guilty. However for the astronomer, this identification may be critical ...

188. Seahenge by Francis Pryor (Book review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... woodland alight in the 5th and again in the 4th millennia. Pryor admits that on the plains of central Europe there was probably a migration of cereal farmers and this practice was eventually introduced into Britain, certainly by the 3rd millennium. He is concerned with NW Europe at the beginning of the Neolithic, when long barrows, causewayed enclosures and megalithic monuments were being constructed. There is plenty of evidence of contact between eastern Britain and the Low Countries, including northern Germany and Denmark, during the 3rd millennium, so it is quite likely these contacts had origins beyond then, providing a route for the introduction of animal husbandry. Boat traffic across the North Sea has probably taken place ...

It will feature Distant Learning Programs, books, videos, audio tapes and television documentaries. More details on page 4. Cambridge Conference List Mass extinctions, small comets and old astronomical megaliths are just a few of the subjects discussed by the CCNet. Catastrophism is not only mainstream, but has hit the silver screen (no pun intended) with the release of "Deep Impact". Electricity in Astronomy Plasma and electricity continue to feature heavily in some of the astronomy discussions in Thoth and the Kronia List, and might ...
190. Avebury: The Biography of a Landscape, by Joshua Pollard and Andrew Reynolds (Book review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... similar to hockey, or hurling, until the Middle Ages; a vestige of celebrations at the site. It is connected to Knapp Hill by a steep ridge of narrow chalk and there are signs of Mesolithic activity on the hill that indicates we are dealing with a very old tradition. In other words, the roots of Irish and British Megalithic culture can go back to the hunter-gatherer stage and are not necessarily the product of Neolithic farmers arriving from elsewhere. Hence, it is best to view all these monuments, from enclosures and barrows to stone-chambered mounds, as a response to something – momentous? Long barrows in the Avebury landscape are found in valley bottoms, on hillsides and ...
