231. Ancient Near Eastern Chronology: To Revise or not to Revise? [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... years or so. This is quite different from earlier views expressed in C&AH several years ago which have proved to be untenable. It is perhaps biblical chronology in relation to conventional alignments that is in need of correction. Global vulcanism has not been detected, and no ash from a great world-wide upheaval, has been discovered, while megalithic monuments remain standing and ancient forests survive in sometimes exposed locations. On that basis it seems to me that the natural phenomena associated with the Exodus from Egypt has perhaps been grafted onto the storyline, (the alternative is to deny it took place). Religio-myth seems to have been attached to an historical event- in much the same ...
232. Geomagnetic Reversals? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... changing places .. . without a substantial disruption of the mechanical momentum of the rotation or revolution of the earth' (W in C, Epilogue'; cf. pt. I, ch. v) suggests a 180 axial tilt - a possibility briefly considered (and not excluded) also by Euan MacKie in his examination of the megalithic evidence (Pensée IVR X, 1974, 16). But, as Michael Reade has pointed out, simple' inversion is not enough: For the heavenly bodies to rise in the west, as recognised by an observer tied to the earth's surface, it seems inescapable that the earth must stop turning and re-start turning in the opposite ...
233. Pot Pourri [Journals] [SIS Review]
... and that remains a very, very big if', we would need to consider the presence in the geographically lost' part of Tunisia, without as yet any archaeological evidence to back it up, of a female-dominated missing link' culture'. The author finds it significant that the westward coastal spread from N. Africa  of megalithic monuments began only after the Black Sea flood. The same can be said for pottery-making and domesticated Asian cereals and animals into Egypt, the Gerzean phase of Egyptian art being the only one showing a Mesopotamian influence. He finds Çatal Hüyük links in the Dorak hoard from near the Sea of Marmara (datable by refs. to Sahura, ...
234. Society News [Journals] [SIS Review]
... and Mesopotamia and the age of human sacrifice. (For evidence see L. Woolley - Royal Cemetery at Ur.) Why did human sacrifice end in Egypt and Mesopotamia at that time? It signifies something. The final catastrophe in Mesopotamia made way for the Akkadians of Sargon the Great - the real Assyrian Empire, Ziggurats, Pyramids, Megaliths. These are celebrations of the removal of the cosmic danger, not tombs. Then there is the Age of the Greek Heroes, at the same time as the conquest of Canaan to the period of the Judges. Disputes were decided by single combat. If we push the Greek Age of Heroes back to 900 BC it makes no ...
235. Some Implications of Saunders' Lunar Hypothesis [Journals] [SIS Review]
... one multiple roll-over of the Earth could underlie the Egyptian priests' tale of four solar reversals, a Hopi legend and the lunar interpretation of stone L19 in ELD. Did the writers of classical myth focus on the more obviously visible solar anomaly, while Hyperboreans, having a lunar observatory but lacking a written language, drew the Moon's motions on megaliths? Be that as it may, the mytho-historical record does not seem to rule out Saunders' lunar hypothesis, and may even lend it some support. Let us now consider what dynamics has to say on the matter. ELD and Rotational Dynamics Although Worlds in Collision implies an association between an east-west reversal and the scenario of a near-collision ...
236. Can Worlds Collide? [Journals] [Kronos]
... conclusion which bears emphasis is his verdict that there remains an as yet inadequately explored loophole: "Orbital stability mathematics: MAYBE." It is on an inspection tour of this loophole that I now invite the reader. You may need to stretch your mind to conceive of a 50-dimensional sponge, but what prize ever came easily? Neolithic and megalithic man saw great regularity in the nightly motions of the stars, which moved in circular arcs around the celestial North pole, but he saw less regularity in the motions of the planets or "wanderers". Did late-bronze-age man witness greater irregularities in the planetary motions than we see? Velikovsky's alleged historical evidence is too extensive to be reviewed ...
237. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... that the text is supposed to suggest Stonehenge, but realising that Stonehenge is circular and not spherical, chooses to translate according to received opinion rather than according to the Greek. In any case, there is no circular in the text, there is no mega in the text and there is no lithic in the text. Any circular, megalithic structure here is conspicuous only for its absence! If Diordoros and Hekataios and certain others were referring to Stonehenge, then of course Stonehenge would already have existed - but that is a very big If'. Furthermore, the tradition would somehow have to have become so hopelessly garbled and distorted that every distinctive feature of Stonehenge was obliterated! ...
238. The Eye Goddess [Journals] [Aeon]
... have a high antiquity in India going back to well into the latter half of the third millennium B.C ."  Marija Gimbutas would trace the European examples back further still: "The west European Eye Goddess of France, Spain, Portugal, and Great Britain is manifested in the stelae, figurines, and amulets of megalithic cultures dating from the 5th to the 3rd millennia B.C ."  That the Inanna-figurines from Tell Brak are analogous to those from prehistoric Europe is generally accepted. Here Gimbutas observed: "Indeed, the resemblance of figurines from the temple of Tel Brak...to stone idols of Spain and Portugal with the ...
239. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... kettle black? Variable Sunshine?source: New Scientist 15.10.81, p. 165 We last reported on the controversial subject of solar size variations in Workshop 3:1 , p. 20. As W. G. Shannon of Edinburgh pointed out, any variations in solar size during historical times has extremely significant implications for megalithic astronomy. The debate continues, and, despite several recent publications on the subject, the matter is far from being resolved. The New Scientist piece tells that the claims made by Dr Jack Eddy have been seriously scrutinised. "Several of the recent papers have shown that the large change found by Eddy is not real, but results ...
240. A Personal Report on, and Irreverent Look at, the World Conference 'Planetary Violence in Human History' Portland, Oregon, January 3-5, 1997 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Kings. He shows problems none of our theories appear to resolve. I do not hold with a culture 10,000 or more years ago that was advanced enough to build ships and a string of supply stations so as to make war with the Greeks from near the South Pole. However, there is plenty of evidence that a sophisticated Megalithic culture existed at the time of the early Greeks; they built Stonehenge, Carnac, Callanish and all the other splendid sites along the Atlantic Coast (and in Europe - there are dolmens even in the Swiss Alps). These people could have had enough practical knowledge of sailing by the stars to move all over the world, feeding ...
