243. Ebla Reconsidered [SIS C&C Review $]
... 1957/8 were in progress and Velikovsky submitted a list of proposals for "Tests and Measurements" related to his theories to the organisers by way of Professor H. H. Hess, then Chairman of Princeton's Geology Department. Item No. 5 of Velikovsky's list proposed the following: An analysis of the magnetic inclination (dip) in the clay of the pottery of the Old and Middle Kingdoms in Egypt may disclose substantial shifts, actually reversals of the magnetic field of the Earth; similar tests could also be performed on various megalithic pottery." [1 Thirty years later, Dr Ken Games of Liverpool University commenced such an analysis of the Egyptian material, and his intriguing results were published recently in New Scientist [2. Dr Games' major finding from the material, which covered a 3,000-year time span, was: Clearly the geomagnetic field in Egypt has varied rapidly and by large amounts. The greatest rate of change, which occurred around the maximum at about 1400 BC, was about 140 nanoteslas/year (0.14 [micro T/ ...
244. A Personal Report on, and Irreverent Look at, the World Conference 'Planetary Violence in Human History' Portland, Oregon, January 3-5, 1997 [SIS C&C Review $]
... altitude 12,000 years ago. Where he gets those 12,000 years, I don't know. Rand Flem-Ath postulates slippage of the Earth's crust and cites Hapgood's Maps of the Ancient Sea 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 out of the ocean. Whether they would have indulged in large-scale warfare, as Plato indicates, is another question. William Mullen: 'Thales: The First Astronomer?' Mullen looked at the ...
245. Monitor [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... By the end of the millennium hard alloys were being made of copper and tin (bronze) and copper with arsenic. Large scale production, however, does not appear to have been undertaken until 900 AD. Smelting was considered an important creative act and probably preceded and followed by solemn rituals. The first set of furnaces at one site were accomanied by the burial of several newborn llamas. Offerings were also made when furnaces were abandoned. New thoughts on Avebury New Scientist 20.4.91, pp. 44-48 and The Independent 22.11.90 The huge megalithic complex at Avebury contains Britain's largest stone circle. Little was recorded of it until the 17th century but since then the activities of antiquarians Aubrey and Stukely have 'shaped our perceptions of Avebury in such a way as to dominate all attempts to understand and reconstruct the complexities of the site.' Recently new evaluation has been done using previously overlooked maps and scientific assays. It seems that ideas of perfect circles and symmetry could be largely wishful thinking. Details of the recent studies have been published under the title Avebury Reconsidered. Columbus' ...
246. Planets in the Bible: I -- The Cosmology of Job [SIS C&C Review $]
... York, 1966) showed that the information contained on a series of portolan maps, widely used by mariners in the Middle Ages, could only have been compiled by a culture which could accurately measure longitude- and hence must have had a transoceanic navigational capability and an awareness of the earth as a sphere and of the heliocentric nature of the solar system. By the "Worlds in Collision" model, the originals of these maps could have been drawn before the Exodus catastrophe. 15. Thus, for example: Alexander Thom: Megalithic Sites in Britain (OUP, 1967); F. X. Kugler: Sternkunde und Sterndienst in Babel (Münster, 1907-35); and the works of Hapgood, Tompkins and Gordon cited above. 16. W in C, II, iii: "Yuddha". 17. Robert K. G.

247. Geomagnetic Reversals? [SIS C&C Review $]
... This is in line with Velikovsky's concept of an 'exchange of the poles'; but the mechanism for accomplishing this has so far remained obscure. Velikovsky's proposal of 'a reversal with east and west 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 direction...' ('Poles Uprooted?' SISR I:1, 1976 18-19)- a conclusion which other investigators have shared (see R. M. Lowery. SISR II: ...
248. Focus [SIS C&C Review $]
... another debate, this time with Professor York of the University of Toronto. This section concludes with Velikovsky's 1966 challenge to the astronomers, "Is Venus' Heat Decreasing?" The book is rounded off with William Mullets "The Centre Holds", in which he surveys the problems and potentialities offered by the Velikovskian synthesis. A comprehensive index is included. The only major criticism of the collection which could be made is that some very important articles are omitted, notably those by Prof. Bass on celestial mechanics, Dr MacKie on megalithic astronomy and Israel Isaacson on archaeological evidence. Stephen Talbott has indicated in correspondence that a further anthology is under consideration, so it is to be hoped that these omissions will be rectified. Rustling in the Undergrowth VELIKOVSKY RECONSIDERED Reviewed So far there have been three reviews of the book, the first long and tendentious in the Times Literary Supplement (25th June), the second short and enthusiastic in New Society (1st July) and the third a somewhat schizophrenic review in the New Scientist (22nd July) The T.L.S. printed ...
249. The Rites Of Moloch [Kronos $]
... similar rite that was ever conducted in honor of Venus. Just as telling is the clue left to us by the Midrashim-that the Tophet, or shrine, of Moloch consisted of seven compartments. These were akin to the "seven circles and seven compartments" of the "house" of the Celtic Ailill.(94) Circular shrines made of open rings, often but not always nested in concentricities of threes and/or sevens, were at one time scattered all over the ancient world. Traces of a great many of these Megalithic structures are still to be seen. They are not new discoveries, but for years they have been misidentified as ancient astronomical observatories. They do incorporate a celestial connection in their design, but it is one in imitation of what was once seen above and not an attempt to pinpoint the astronomical moments of what we see now. What these structures, with but few exceptions, once commemorated is no longer there to be seen. I have many times, in my past papers, treated of the seven primordial rings which once ...
