251. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 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 ...
252. Nine Spheres of Venusian Effects [Books] [de Grazia books]
... a critic leaped at it claiming that eclipses of the times before 700 B.C . were known and hence the skies had been orderly for long before then. Over the years he and his supporters put to rest this claim. No such historical record exists; there is no anomaly present. Other critics were discovering in Stonehenge and other megalithic constructions an astronomical orientation that went back to the New Stone Age and is still valid. This is not so. Dr. Euan MacKie wrote about his investigations: "In the 16th or 15th centuries B.C . a second period of crisis began during which the dressed bluestone setting was dismantled, and joints on its stones battered ...

... celestial gods, goddesses, trees, paradises, wars, music, origins of the forms of government e.g ., divine kingship, economics e.g ., feudalism, religion e.g ., global celestially based creation stories of founding heroes and heroines, architecture e.g ., pyramids, ziggurats, mounds, megalithic structures, palaces, temples, rituals e.g ., sacred dance, theatre, clothing, sport, solsticial and equinoxical ceremonies sometimes involving human sacrifice. The descending debris left distinct strata layers and consequential evidence in the ground e.g ., fire, earthquake and flood levels. People fled southward from northern latitudes. When ...
254. A Conversation with Barry Fell [Journals] [Horus]
... has been necessary to save space, eliminate crosstalk, etc. while preserving the mainstream. Editorial comments for clarification have been added. As the conversation began, Dr. Fell cited some recently uncovered evidence supporting his work. It came from a site in Bolivia where there was... Dr. Fell: "a big Sun-gate with megalithic features, and the archaeologists who have investigated there brought up some Phoenician beads. Have you seen those Phoenician beads? Actually they were reported in North America as early as about 1820, I think. A man called Schoolcraft - he made a big report to the American congress, a very good report which was published in an enormous ...
... , one which escaped the fate of other isles in the Flood epoch. This obtains support in the Greek myth that Merops, son of Hyas, assembled the remnants of humanity who like himself were preserved on the island of Cos, one of the Sporades. The solution might lie with the Outer Hebrides, where are relics of the great Megalithic civilisation, tom to pieces by the forces of nature. Another aspect of the Meropes was told by Theopompus. Midas, the wealthy sea king of Phrygia whose touch turned everything into gold, was informed by old Silenus, the crafty prophet and teacher of the god Dionysus, that beyond the Atlantic there lay a great continent larger than ...
256. The Rites Of Moloch [Journals] [Kronos]
... 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 ...
257. Kronos, Minos, and the Celestial Labyrinth [Journals] [Kronos]
... Talbott's The Saturn Myth. In this essay I have concerned myself primarily with identifications.(44) Clearly, however, the labyrinthine surroundings of the Minotaur, Tlaloc, and Huwawa refer to Saturn's once brilliantly-visible ring system, and not to some imaginary process operating upon our present Sun. These labyrinthine gods and monsters, coupled with the labyrinthine megaliths and drawings which can be found all over the globe, form some of the most intriguing and important evidence in favor of the thesis of a once universally dominant Saturn.(45) REFERENCES 1. R. Graves, The Greek Myths, Vol. I (N .Y ., 1960). Since the Minoan myths are ...
258. Petrofabric Analysis: An Unreliable Archaeological Tool [Journals] [Kronos]
... provide the answer, being a very unsophisticated technique patently unable to discriminate between a natural or human genesis for the stone layer. Other evidence must be called for before the hypothesis that the stone layer was created by man can be vindicated. Unfortunately for those who contend that the stone layer was the creation of the "astronomer priesthood" of megalithic times, the available evidence(28) flatly contradicts this contention that the stone layer was man-made.

... and 1500. North of there, slash and burn farming started at least 2000 years ago and the earliest embankments could have been built as early as AD 500. Their function was probably more spiritual defence than physical, as ditches are thought of as a no-go area to keep evil spirits out. Is this also the original function of the megalithic henges? Tropical forests around the world appear to have a far richer civilised history than they have been given credit for, since most important excavation has gone on in drier and more obvious areas such as Egypt and Mesopotamia. Buried heads Science Frontiers No. 123, May-June 99, p. 1 One of the earliest Mexican cultures was ...
260. Graham Hanock: Adjudication [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... , his detailed arguments had not been included in the programme, which had only quoted him as saying of carbon-dating "I'm not required to be encyclopaedic". This had left the false impression that he either knew nothing about carbon-dating or was unaware of research in the field. The BBC said that Mr Hancock's view was that carbon-dating evidence from megalithic sites could be ignored. It would not have helped his case had the programme used those parts of his interview where he had shown an "anti-scientific" and dismissive view of a well-established archaeological tool, whereby monuments could be dated in relation to the organic material within them. "Intellectual fraudster" Mr Hancock said that the programme had ...
