211. Anomalistics - a New Field of Interdisciplinary Studies [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... , moreover (as applied to particular taxa), extinction is not merely unexplained but paradoxical, since some groups - of which the best known are the saurischia, or large dinosaurs - seem not merely to have survived but to have flourished immediately before their geologically sudden disappearance.4 A good example of a social science anomaly is the archaic megalithic complex, of which the best known specimen is probably the great stone circle at Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England. In an apparent effort to contain (since they cannot eliminate) the strangeness of this complex, in which both the methods and the motives of construction remain obscure, archeologists have written about it as though it were confined to ...

... Madrid, 1935), p. 12; F. Windels, The Lascaux Cave Paintings (London, 1949), p. 127. 5. This image is taken from M. Devlet, Petroglify Mugur-Sargola (Mockba, 1980), Figure 20, p. 237. Close parallels can be found in E. Twohig, The Megalithic Art of Western Europe (Oxford, 1981), Figures 49 and 217; and E. Anati, Camonica Valley (New York, 1961), p. 95. On the age of these petroglyphs Anati writes: "The most ancient Valley carvings dealing with sun worship belong to the end of the Stone Age, to the ...

... smaller than it was 400 years ago and, analysing measurements from Greenwich Observatory between 1836 and 1953, report that the sun is shrinking at the rate of about 2 arc seconds per century, equivalent to 10Km. each year or more than 1 meter per hour. At this rate it will disappear in 100,000 years. Investigators into megalithic astronomy assume that the size of the solar disc has always remained constant. Will these findings mean that, for example, Dr. Mackie will have to revise his conclusions on megalithic astronomy (e .g . Pensee Winter 1974-5)? W. Shannon, Edinburgh. Biblical Eschatology Dear Sir, Comparing the last sentence of your Editorial ...
214. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... TV, 2000 An attempt to reconstruct the hanging gardens of Babylon built by Sennacherib at Nineveh, as described in the literature, led to the conclusion that giant Archimedes screws were used to lift water and massive bronze casting was required but both were anachronistic. The screw attributed to Archimedes was not invented till 400 years later.

... prints were soon filled with volcanic ash. The prints were made by feet shorter and wider than those of modern humans; but the big toe definitely points forward and is not splayed as in apes. (Anonymous; "Footprints in the Sands of Time", New Scientist, 77:483, 1978). STONE ALIGNMENTS IN AFRICA Megalithic sites are found everywhere; many were apparently used for calendar reckoning. Although numerous megalithic circles and other arrangements are known in Africa, particularly Ethiopia, astronomy does not seem to have been a primary objective of African sites. Now, however, a stone alignment in northwestern Kenya called Namoratunga has been found with unmistakable astronomical overtones. At ...
... doing there on the Marlborough Downs in a country devoid of any rock at all, but with a vast thickness of chalk ? The evident explanation is that these stones were rained down from Heaven and the Druids in a very ancient day recognised the site as holy, made it perhaps the sacred centre of their rule, and erected this vast megalithic temple of round form, which Stukeley believed to be representative of the head of a serpent (Overton Hill), its body (the Avenue) and coil? (Temple), a temple thus to Cronus-Saturn, also Baal, later Satan. Archaeologists dispute about the comparative civilisation of the builders. The work was undoubtedly carried through ...

... that affairs on Earth take place on a detached and solitary ball. On this view the Solar System has wandered through the huge galactic wilderness undisturbed, while life has evolved and continents have drifted in isolation. At the other end of the scale it has been assumed that primitive religions with their attendant sky gods have arisen, and pyramids and megaliths have been built, under a neolithic sky no different from our own. The essence of our thesis is that new [sic]* astronomical discoveries make these isolationist and uniformitarian viewpoints impossible to maintain. Almost without exception, these discoveries are the product of very sophisticated technology and have been made only within the past few years: radio ...
219. Homer in the Baltic [Journals] [Aeon]
... Scandinavian remains dating back to the Bronze Age present a remarkable affinity, as for example the figures engraved on Kivik's tomb in Sweden, to the extent that a 19th century scholar suggested the monument was built by the Phoenicians. Another sign of the Achaean presence in the northern world in a very distant past is a Mycenaean graffito found in the megalithic complex of Stonehenge in southern England. Other remains revealing a Mycenaean influence were found in the same area (" Wessex culture"), which date back to a period preceding the Mycenaean civilization in Greece. A trace of contact is found in the Odyssey, which mentions a market for bronze placed overseas in a foreign country named " ...

... over the peak at night, have been recorded in fairly recently years. The author claims to have discovered similar magnetic anomalies in America, at holy sites of native Americans. Radioactivity is another feature common to holy places. Uranium deposits have been found at American and Australian Aborigine sites. It is claimed that even in France the distribution of megaliths corresponds very well with known uranium deposits. This would be especially pertinent where those same megalithic sites were found to be also located near or on fault lines. Even small tremors may have generated a radioactive response, or some kind of phenomenon associated with the gods. Radiation locked inside rocks has been found at Long Meg in Cumbria and ...
