... bunches of feathers, the second was a star revolving about the polar star and the third was associated with the evening star [7 ]. It should be clear from these descriptions that the basic religious ideas of the Mandans were closely connected to astral configurations, associations and cosmic events. Summarising their apocalyptic beliefs, which were particularly related to meteoric activity, Maximilian wrote: If the falling stars are numerous, or in a certain direction, it is to them an indication of war, or of a great mortality in the human race' [8 ]. O-Ke-hee-de- the Mandan Evil Spirit. He was "covered in black paint with rings of white clay," representing ...

422. Erratic Events in the Solar System [Journals] [SIS Review]
... pulled round to follow Jupiter in the same orbital direction, but the tail end of the jet could escape and go into retrograde orbit. It is significant that 3 large asteroids travelling in retrograde orbits have recently been discovered [8 ]. Some jet' droplets may lose charge even more rapidly and go into electrically stable orbits as comets, meteors and meteorites. Figure 3. Electrical discharge characteristics a). electrical discharge in a tube of low pressure gas causes striations b). these would be shells, seen as rings, in the case of a cosmic body with an electrical charge which is leaking into the surrounding space c). the symbol on an American dollar bill ...

... ring, according to him, would have been composed of tektites and other litter spewed into space by an erupting volcano on the Moon. (15) (O'Keefe's postulate was later picked up by Clube and Napier but they suppressed all mention of the lunar volcano, thus giving the false impression that O'Keefe's "debris" was generated by heavy meteoric impact.) (16) A year later, in 1981, in an essay heavily burdened with Velikovskian overtones and sensationally illustrated by April Lawton, Lloyd Motz presented a doomsday scenario projected into the far future. In describing the end of the Solar System, Motz predicted that, due to the "tremendous pull of the earth's tidal ...

... which can be used to date them precisely. Thesis III: that human culture as a whole came into being in response to such catastrophes, apart from which no distinctively human form of behavior is to be postulated. It should be noted that all three theses could be developed either along Clube and Napier's lines, by scenarios involving comets and meteor swarms in an otherwise stable solar system, or along the lines of Velikovsky and many after him, by scenarios positing recent instabilities in the behavior of specific planets in a specific sequence. What differentiates each thesis from the preceding is the magnitude of its claim to explanatory power, and hence the number of disciplines it must enlist to establish ...

425. Jupiter -- God of Abraham (Part II) [Journals] [Kronos]
... excited by stupendous electrical storms far superior to those which the planet's atmosphere continues to exhibit to this day, would have generated a tremendous increase in its shed light. This increase in light, which would probably have occurred in a pulsating manner, would have been enough to frighten Chedorlaomer's army even if there were no accompanying earthquake and/or meteor shower of which the legends make no mention (104a) Would not this celestial intervention be considered too much of a coincidence? Not if Abram knew beforehand that it would occur. And if Abram had long been studying Jupiter's antics, he might not only have predicted the time of the disturbance, but might even have timed his clash ...

426. The Catastrophic Finale of the Middle Bronze Age [Books] [de Grazia books]
... the stars (which describes a shifting struggle among the animals of the Zodiac), concludes that this must be considered a metaphor. However, he crosses the bridge to scientific catastrophism in his analysis of the myth of Phaeton. This, he argued, embodies a factual event of the mid-second millennium when "one and the same stream of meteors passed over Africa (in particular, Ethiopia) and the Aegean, producing respectively great fires and violent flood waves." Kugler, it seems, strives to limit the Phaetonic catastrophe as severely as he can, while allowing the grave reality. A number of Soviet, American, and Bulgarian students are delving into the area of the ...

... claim that an impact from space caused the Dark Ages in the British Isles and even on the European continent [60]. The notion of Dark Ages' not only describes a lack of written documents but also the non-existence of archaeological finds. Without having to postulate an asteroid (for which the impact crater appears to be missing) or meteor streams, the thesis of the phantom years also covers the Old World, from Iceland to Indonesia. Palmer also introduces Pope Sylvester II as a witness, thereby creating further problems for himself. He remarks that this pope was the first in Christian Europe to teach the Arabic-Indian system of numbers. In 990 Gerbert d'Aurillac (later Pope Sylvester ...

... Pyramid. We may also note several iron chisels and other tools dated to Dynasty V from Sakkara [2 ], whilst from Dynasty VI we can count a pickaxe from Abusir as well as a collection of broken tools from the same period unearthed at Dahshur [3 ]. Most of these had no significant nickel content and were therefore not meteoric iron but iron smelted from ore. Discoveries such as these so confused specialists that two were moved to pronounce how in Egypt the Iron Age may yet prove to have even preceded the Bronze Age'[4 ]. The arch was in use both in Egypt and Mesopotamia from Early Dynastic times - though like iron, it was apparently ...
