61. The End of a World (Built Before the Flood) [Books]
... overwhelmed Tiahuanaco can be inferred from many evidences. Quantities of carefully worked stone blocks are in different stages of completion. Tools were found near them, embedded in the soil, scattered as if they had been thrown down upon the impulse of an instant. Moulds are lying about for casting the bronze or copper cramps with which some of the megalithic masonry was bound. We find models of the principal buildings, or of parts of them, carefully worked in stone, lying tumbled about on that part of the site of Tiahuanaco which may have been the Office of Works'. Here and there considerable deposits are met with, containing bones of men and animals, fragments of pottery ...
62. Plato's Atlantis and Prehistoric Europe [Articles]
... Now as one possibility, and this may seem like a very long shot, is it possible that the Egyptians had some vague memory of the prehistoric cultures of Europe that did live in predynastic times- in Egyptian terms, 9000 years ago, or in our terms, during the fourth millennium? SLIDE 24 : The distribution of the so-called Megalithic civilisations actually agrees quite well with the description in the Timaeus which says that the Atlantean empire went as far as Italy and as far as North Africa. Although it is not shown on the map, you do find similar remains, pottery and otherwise, to the Megalithic cultures of Europe in North Africa. Radiocarbon dates for the Megalithic ...
63. Fingerprints of the Gods: do ancient relicts point to an advanced civilisation 15,000 years ago? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... changes and what I am intrigued about with this Spider is the focus on the constellation of Orion and the apparent intention to track the precessional movements of the Orion constellation, because we find exactly the same phenomenon in Egypt, as I shall show later. I shall also return to the phenomenon of precession and its connections to global catastrophes. Megalithic architecture Figure 8 The author dwarfed by the giant blocks of Sacsayhuaman. Returning to South America and Peru in particular, I want to draw attention to this phenomenon of megalithic architecture all around the world associated with astronomically aligned buildings. Figure 8 shows Sacsayhuaman near Cuzco - a very earthquake-proof type of design but one that is truly mind-boggling in ...
64. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... ellipses were becoming more circular'. The one further away' is presumably the ring at the roadside before the visitor walks up to the site proper. I remember it as a closed kerb of stones buttressing a mound or cairn, therefore much different in type from the five or six' open rings. I do not believe that the Megalith builders of Britain ever deliberately constructed an ellipse (or any other mathematically sophisticated structure), and I have studied the published claims in some detail. With regard to Machrie Moor, I have quoted below a long footnote from an unpublished paper of mine on the subject of Megalithic Science (with extra explanatory phrases added here in square brackets ...
65. The Pyramid Age, by Emmet J Sweeney (Review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , emphasising their abundant use of iron tools to carve the hard granite .. . '. Chapter 2 reviews the basis for the conventional chronologies and notes they depend almost entirely for their validity upon venerated literary tradition'. He then looks at the whole custom of pyramid building', which is seen as part of a worldwide genre of megalithic structures... ' which includes the ziggurats of Mesopotamia and Stonehenge. These were sacred temples dedicated to the celestial deities, and inspired by awesome natural events occurring early in the first millennium'. In Chapter 5 he looks at the start of the 8th century, which is his date for the arrival of the Assyrians in Egypt ...
66. Society News [Journals] [SIS Review]
... his closing address that perhaps the way forward might include yet more to consider. The main conclusion, I feel sure, was that although we may never agree upon the truth of our past, the search for it is perennially stimulating and long may the basic broadminded tolerance shown by most of those present at this conference last. Jill Abery Megalithic building It is widely recognised there was a megalithic building era, probably around 750BC, when peoples all over the world erected monuments from large pieces of stone. It also looks probable that it was the earth-shaking motions associated with the disturbances described by the Ninsianna tablet record which caused earthquakes and landslips, releasing large quantities of stone for easy ...
67. Horizons [Journals] [SIS Review]
... State College, Glassboro, N.J . 08028, U.S .A . 1 year (4 issues): $15.00; overseas $20.00 (airmail). The third issue of Volume IV was published last spring, and contains two pieces by DR VELIKOVSKY and a discussion by DWARDU CARDONA of two megalithic sites (Kintraw and Ballochroy) examined by our contributor EUAN MACKIE in his papers in Pensée, as well as an extended "Forum" and "Vox Populi" section where writers reply to comments from readers. Regrettably, Cardona's contribution appears to have been written under the impression that MacKie's articles were attempts to discredit Velikovsky, and is ...
68. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... SIS Review. Priority would be given to producing the second issue of Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop and Volume VIII of the Review (which would be mainly devoted to the Society's highly successful tenth anniversary Egyptian tour), with a target date of the end of 1986. Looking ahead, the major event of 1987 would be a tour of Scottish megalithic sites. An excellent and varied programme had been arranged with a great deal of hard work by Peter James, Brian Moore, Sandra Parker and Nick Thorpe. Finally, the Chairman paid tribute to the efforts of all members of Council and both editorial teams, while regretting the loss through resignation of David Rohl. The Treasurer, David ...
69. Gods of the New Millennium by Alan F. Alford [Journals] [SIS Review]
... breakthroughs in human knowledge, from the wheel and the boat to law, mathematics and metallurgy, are all supposed to have taken place first in Sumer, before 2000 BC, is proof that this is where his gods' landed and took charge of humanity's development. Alford believes this provides an explanation for all kinds of things: the massive megalithic stone platform at Baalbek was designed as a landing platform for the rockets of the gods'; the Sinai peninsula was the gods' Space Centre - with Jerusalem as its Mission Control'; the Great Pyramid, with its mysterious internal shafts and passages and finely-fitted stonework, was built as a water fuel cell' to split water into ...
70. The Mapmakers from the ice age [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... to the principle of a stereographic projection centered on the point X (intersection of the meridian of Alexandria and of the tropic of Cancer). From this point, I have traced the circumferences the radiuses of which equal 36, 72 (2x36), 108 (3x36) and 144 (4x36) degrees. We notice that: The megalithic sites of Stonehenge (Great Britain) and of Carnac (France) are situated on the first circle. The ancient Chinese observatory of Gaocheng (area of Luoyang) and the site of Angkor Vat (Cambodia) are situated on the second circle. The remarkable solar observatory of Chaco Canyon (USA, New-Mexico), the Maya cities ...
