... Vail (1840-1912), an obscure American school teacher, whose writings first described the importance of what are now termed 'hidden halos'. According to his view, much of mythology and legend can be understood in terms of ice crystal halos and the way light is reflected from them so that the appearance of such phenomena as 'dragon's eyes' is seen by ... Workshop II but having said this, it must be admitted that this is where any similarity between the two schools of thought ends. Stonehenge Viewpoint does indeed investigate such items as mythological swords, dragons and angel wings but the interpretation of such phenomena is not a Velikovskian one, but rather one that owes its origins to Isaac N. Vail (1840-1912) ... that similar phenomena as that dealt with by Stonehenge Viewpoint is also studied in the works of Immanuel Velikovsky but with very different results. As is well known to Velikovskians, such myths as the fiery dragon are related to the close approach of cometary bodies to the earth. It is difficult to see how both schools of thought can be correct or at best ...

... title "Queen of Heaven" from Anat, but Anat and Mary in no way resemble each other, and in fact, Anat resembles the Archangel Michael much more closely in mythological terms. The Sword of God Mars is traditionally the warrior planet, and Velikovsky deals with the subject in depth, just as he deals with that planet's connection with rodents, ... I also believe that all other major world religions are a protestantation of this ancient cult which was once the only universal religion. I base this conclusion on the similarities among the myths which are common to all faiths: the Tree of Life, the Rivers, the Supreme God, and the presence in many faiths of a Trinity. Trinity In the Christian ... Jupiter and Venus. It is possible that the moon god Sin was originally Saturn, and that Sin gave its name to God's holy mountain Sinai.

... a snail, its horns are described as like a cow's and there is some lethal quality associated with its tail. Could this be cometary imagery? A few rhymes hint of mythological relics.

It may stem from the early rituals of killing the king, which some mythologists interpret as ensuring vigour in fertility cults but which catastrophists associate with the demise of a Saturn god.

... for the old chestnut of Santorini. There is certainly no hint here to back up the rumour of a Russian expedition supposedly finding evidence of ruins in the Atlantic. The Flood mythology is eventually dismissed as due to local phenomena, which is a lame finish to discussions and maps showing how widespread and similar are the flood myths from around the world. Strangely ... Rezanov follows this immediately with an interesting description of the history of the Mediterranean basin, with its drying up and subsequent catastrophic reflooding about 10Myrs ago. He refers to this as a deluge, though perhaps the translation is a little misleading, but hastens to add that man had not evolved at that stage. As a collection of descriptions of most types of ... ) It must be questionable how much of del Mar's material is relevant to modern historical studies, as he makes it abundantly clear that a great deal of what he cites is mythical or synthetic, having been manipulated by people who were trying to make use of it to advance their own interests (and who did not stop short of re-writing ancient data, ...

She was present for the entire seminar, did three interviews (two before and one after the seminar) with Dave and Wal, and has set up a series on the mythology and the human side of the catastrophes with Dave.
