241. The Garden, the Fall and the Restoration [Articles]
... around 10.000 BC, then we can hypothesize perhaps that human beings, specifically Cro-Magnon man, instead of somehow evolving towards the state that we find at the beginning of written human history, actually degenerating to that state. This is a statement that comes also from the examination of certain anomalies in so-called prehistory, the finding of various megalithic monuments which could hardly be reproduced with our modern technology today, has caused a great deal of speculation about ancient astronauts, for instance, all these wild theories are brought forward simply because there are so many anomalies to be explained. If there was, as we suppose, a vast cataclysm around 10.000 BC, in which ...
242. Keeper of Genesis by Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of producing the Sphinx existed then in Egypt or anywhere else. However, by a strange twist of logic, he went on to suggest that the Sphinx was the creation of an even earlier civilisation, whose traces are buried where no-one has yet looked. Bauval and Hancock use similar logic to argue that because we cannot easily explain how the megalithic pillars and architraves in the Valley Temple of Khafre next to the Sphinx were put in place with the technology of 2,500 BC, this too must have been erected much earlier and both it and the Sphinx must date from 10,500 BC. The reason for choosing this particular date follows from their belief that the Giza complex ...
243. Early Historic Man -- Catastrophism and Calendars [Articles]
... do lots of things and have thoughts which were not always very far from those we have nowadays. It is accepted generally that prehistoric and early historic man was unable, and I underline unable, to measure the exact length of the solar year of that time. Notwithstanding the fact that on the other hand apparently early historic man had constructed megalithic monuments- Stonehenge amongst others- and that they apparently have constructed them as observatories and could even foresee solar eclipses- as you know, this needs the intervention of higher mathematics. So in one direction they were unable to measure the exact length of the year and on the other hand they were more acquainted than many people nowadays with ...
244. Four Faces of Collective Psychology [Journals] [Horus]
... , something external, has changed. To suggest that a perceptual error was made is to demean our ancestors and to make them out to be far less intelligent and "conditionable" than they must have been.(1 ) We may grant Dr. Griffard his point, but we cannot ignore the controversy here. If primitive calendars and megaliths describe a starry sky that no longer exists, then mankind, in the short period of time he has occupied this earth stood in witness of major, global, cosmic changes and catastrophes which our more traditional scientists are only now beginning to discern and discover. Griffard's Collective Behaviorism leads us precisely to this vision of primitive and ancient monuments ...

246. The Cambridge Conference [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... ,300 BC, caused by an increased tilt of the Earth. John Bimson considered the biblical evidence for catastrophes. Velikovsky's scenario had been founded on the idea of the Exodus taking place at the time of a great catastrophe in the middle of the second millennium BC. Did biblical traditions support this? The implication of the astronomical use of megalithic monuments would indicate that these were built after any major Earth shifting catastrophe and radiocarbon dating led to the conclusion that any such catastrophe took place at the end of the Egyptian Old Kingdom, in line with Mandelkehr's 2,300BC event. The destructions in the Middle Bronze Age were not so widespread as those of the Early period and could ...

... the most common mineral in rocks, is a form of silica, which has been shown to emit red light, changing to blue as it begins to fracture. Another researcher has twice picked up an electromagnetic hum in California about one month before earthquakes and lasting for a month afterwards. It is noteworthy that quartz crystals are often associated with megalithic and other ancient cultural centres in both the New World and the Old. The dowsing force New Scientist 23/30.12.95, pp. 54-55 Two professors, one of physics and one of astronomy, have both conducted detailed experiments into dowsing and have been forced to the conclusion that it is a real phenomenon. We ...
248. Sagan's Folly Part 1 [Journals] [Kronos]
... . 335 in particular. Sagan (p . 13): "I am not as confident as Velikovsky in the computational precision of ancient astronomers." This is a loaded statement that is actually a two-edged sword. In his attempt to discredit Velikovsky's interpretation of past "aberrant calendrical conventions", Sagan brings himself into direct conflict with the megalithic interpretations of Thom and Hawkins, uniformitarian readings of the so-called "Venus Tablets of Ammizaduga", and runs head-on into Egyptological supporters of the so-called "Sothic period" --the very foundation stone of ancient history's chronological edifice. Sagan (p . 14): Sagan commits a non sequitur. After referring to Leach, "an expert on ...

... ."(2 ) I am another precursor on the subject of how archaic men managed to erect immense stone monuments without literally dying of fatigue. While Jaynes suggests (on pp. 426 & 427) that they did it by operating in a schizoid rather than subjectively "conscious" state, I suggested ". .. that the megalith erectors were operating in a manner psychologically more antlike than manlike (as we normally understand that latter term)- in short, that they labored almost exclusively in a state of protracted trance."(3 ) Yet another set of predecessors whom he ignores are Louis Pauwels, Robert Charroux, and Ronald Willis,(4 ) all ...

... (2 ) a book on his position. He has published various articles over the years, primarily in the Los Angeles-based Catastrophism and Ancient History, which has also published pieces by Courville. Courville and Chetwynd both noted the general consensus on the Palestinian stratigraphical record: The Early Bronze Age in Israel was noted for great walled cities, virtually megalithic in their construction. At the end of the Early Bronze Age, these cities and their people were overthrown by invaders from east of the Jordan River, widely assumed to have come from Mesopotamia or from the north, although there is no direct evidence of this. The invaders are assumed to be the Canaanites of the Bible. At ...
