441. Megalithic Circles and Star Charts [Journals] [SIS Review]
... surrounding stones. Again, the paving, as well as the material found in the central structure, suggests rituals. The circles date from early in the Ozieri period, around 2300 BC [13]. There are also other indicators of ritual activity associated with circles. In Iran, it was only in the age of Zoroaster that the Persians adopted covered temples, having formerly worshipped in open-air circular structures. According to the Greek traveller, Pausanius, the Greeks may also have done the same thing [14]. In Japan, the building of stone circles began in the Early Jomon stage, but the peak of construction was during the Late Jomon Period [15]. ...

442. Sagan's Folly Part 1 [Journals] [Kronos]
... nothing more than a recent popularized work of Joseph Campbell which can only qualify as a tertiary source. Contrary to the meager few examples offered by Sagan, Velikovsky noted that there were a number of "analogous traditions of four expired ages" in both East and West. He also acknowledged that there were traditions of seven ages (Etruscan, Persian, sacred Hindu and Hebrew writings), ten ages (Chinese), and nine ages (Polynesia and Iceland) as well, while carefully pointing out that the number of years ascribed to various ages differed (pp. 30-33). Nothing was hidden. Yet, the section's opening caveat, quoted above, was deliberately omitted in ...

... more salt-resistant barley. The percentage of wheat in the overall crops was 16.3 percent in 2400 BC, where salinisation was gradually increasing. It dropped sharply to 3.0 percent in 2300 BC, and then decreased to 1.9 percent in 2100 BC [24]. Radiocarbon dating of shell materials from beach deposits on the Persian Gulf coast shows a recent uplift on the western coast of Saudi Arabia, 15 kilometres north of Al Jubail. The time of the uplift is set at about 2300 BC by the dated material [25]. The last item is the crustal warping of Anatolia (Turkey) as indicated by three measured curves of relative sea level rise ...

444. The Erratic Descent of Man [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , 38 and 32 Myr ago, as evidenced by microtektite fields in the Caribbean, but none of these seem precisely associated with extinctions [19,20]. Continental drift was bringing Africa closer to Eurasia, but by 30 Myr ago these continents were still completely separated by the shallow Tethys Sea along the line of the Mediterranean and the Persian Gulf [17,18]. Thick forests covered much of the land on the southern side of this sea. At this time, the Late Oligocene, the common ancestors of Old World monkeys and apes, a diverse group of unspecialised tree-living primates, including Aegyptopithecus, lived in Africa. Aegyptopithecus, the size of a small dog ...

... he was largely self-taught and by the age of 13 he could read books in Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Italian and French. As a child he constructed telescopes and microscopes the better to study the world around him. In his teenage years he taught himself algebra, geometry and the calculus, also more than 14 languages including Arabic and Persian. Reading this is very humbling - makes you realise just how puny your own talents are! At the age of 19 Young attended lectures at Bart's Hospital in London with the intention of becoming a doctor of medicine. There he wrote his first scientific paper, contradicting the then-prevalent view that the whole eyeball changed shape when altering focus. ...

446. Anomalistics - a New Field of Interdisciplinary Studies [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... results from military conquest, population explosion, or literary prestige. As far as is known, however, the Arameans were themselves a relatively minor group of pastoral nomads. At the time of the overthrow of the Assyrian and Babylonian empires, a wellinformed linguistic prognosticator would probably have predicted that their imperial language, Akkadian, would be superseded by Persian or perhaps by Greek but hardly by any of the West Semitic vernaculars. An anomaly of control, finally, is provided by local weather, concerning which we now have a wealth of information but which we can scarcely even forecast, much less manipulate with any assurance of even minimal success. The trouble with this typology, of course ...

448. The Origins of the Latin God Mars [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Old Testament [II Kings 17:30]. The chief god of Kutha, a city near Babylon, Nergal's cult can be traced throughout the wide range of Akkadian influence, from Mari to Babylon to Sumer [16]. The god's cult can be found in the earliest times of Sumer and remained strong even in late Babylonian and Persian times, a period spanning some three thousand years [17]. In the past century a wealth of evidence has come to light regarding the nature of this god. Nergal was first and foremost a god of war. As was the case with the Latin Mars and Greek Ares, the name Nergal was frequently employed as a synonym ...

... first appeared on the stage of history. The legend of the great Flood was not current in historic times among the Egyptians nor among the black races, according to Ignatius Donnelly, but it occurs almost everywhere else. The Assyrians and Babylonians had traditions of a Flood. Abraham migrated from Ur of the Chaldeans, near the head of the Persian Gulf. His grandson, Jacob, with his twelve sons, moved farther westward into Egypt, so that the Egyptians of that period must have heard about the Flood, though they seem to have escaped it. The Egyptians were doubtless indigenous; the ancestors of Abraham arrived in Mesopotamia by boat. The records of the Egyptian priests antedate ...
