31. Saturnists Play Marbles [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... planetary deity is the Morning Star - Mars of the Pawnee in Nebraska. And incidentally, theirs is the only Indian culture of North America I know of that practiced human sacrifice - but not anywhere near on the scale of the Aztecs - and only when Mars rose in the East. Funny thing is that there are polar configuration pictographs and petroglyphs all over the place - circle within a circle within a circle with radiating spokes (the radiant Venus) as well as spirals and crescents, so Saturn was presumably depicted in this, but I don't know of any evidence that the planet itself was worshipped by itself. Ev Adds: Typically the ancient sun-god in American Indian legends is ...
32. SIS Study Group Meeting 16th October 1999 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... dynastic era. Petrie in his History of Egypt had suggested that Egypt was united by a race with strong cultural links with Mesopotamia. These appeared to move into the Delta from the south. They probably arrived by boat on the shore of the Red Sea, and crossed the desert to arrive in middle Egypt. Arthur Weigal first found the petroglyphs depicting high-prowed boats being dragged across the desert around 1908 in the Eastern desert at Wadi Hammamat, and this may have led Petrie to suggest this route. Dynasty I was started by them after their conquest. Rohl disagrees with Petrie and has them arriving over two centuries earlier to start the Nakada II (Gerzean) culture. In Rohl's ...
33. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , by Charles Ginenthal. 1997, $24 95. This is a special edition of The Velikovskian and deals in detail with the evidence that the mammoths were wiped out during a cosmic catastrophe. Picture Writing of the American Indians, by G. Mallery, 1893, $25 00 The copious data in this book deals with inscriptions and petroglyphs from all over the world, invaluable because much of this ancient art has since been damaged or disappeared. Beyond the Warming: The Hazards of Climate Prediction in the Age of Chaos, by A. Milne, 1996, $14 95 A timely book in the era when global warming is all the rage, to remind us that ...
34. The Past Comes Down [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... spite of an alleged distance of 2,500 years, have the appearance of being contiguous to each other; The stelae of Luni (Apennines) belong to the Neolithic as well as to Etruscan times, i.e . to cultures allegedly separated in time by 2,000 years; In the Val Camonica (Italian Alps). petroglyphs have allegedly been cut into the same rocks over a time span of 8,000 years; Platonic polyhedrons have allegedly been made from hard stone in Scotland more than 1,000 years before Plato lived. As a next step, then, Immanuel Velikovsky's discovery had to be incorporated into the developing scenario, which was that the Dark ...
35. Thundergods and Thunderbolts [Journals] [Aeon]
... 145] Jurakan, like the other thundergods described as living at the "heart of heaven," is best understood as a personification of the planet Mars which formerly resided at the Pole, the latter deemed to be the sacred center whence emanated the primeval winds and prototypical lightning.  THE CELESTIAL LADDER AND RELATED FORMS Figure 16 Petroglyphs from India showing pillar with "sun." Figure 17 American Indian pictograph showing Saturnian enclosure on top of serpentine axis.

36. The Saturn Problem [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , as they say, is believing. While more complex than a simple circular halo, the example I saw at Carnac was still relatively simple. For the more elaborate, even fantastic configurations, that solar haloes can suggest to the observer, there are many interesting engravings from Renaissance times [2 ]. Figure 1 Comparison of a typical petroglyph with a simple solar halo Figure 2 Combining a rayed sun with a simple solar halo, resulting is a solar wheel Fig. 3. Renaissance print showing a rayed Sun surrounded by solar halo, as seen at Nürnberg on the 2nd May, 1556 At the conference, and echoing the thoughts from a previously published paper [3 ] ...
37. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... May-June 00, p. 1 Peanuts are New World plants but have been found at two Neolithic sites in eastern China dated at 2400 BC and 4400 BC. In addition, a written Chinese description of such a distinctive plant dates from AD300. A Chinese researcher has found 56 matching sets of engraved characters in both the Americas and China. Petroglyphs in Petroglyph Provincial Park in North America appear to resemble symbols used in northern Europe around 800 BC and one depicts a Viking-like ship similar to one carved in Sweden. The Canadian Arctic has stone towers and standing stones which appear to be neither of Eskimo or Viking origin but are similar to stone structures on northern Scottish islands. A blood ...
38. Spatters And Planetary Iconography [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... come together, difficulties in dating can be resolved. Gods may then appear in different guises. They will become, like Vishnu and Buddha, gods with several incarnations each. So Quetzalcoatl may have appeared very early in time, but you will just have to factor in a number of encores. Figure 80 Figure 80 is my depiction of petroglyphs found in Utah. Their dates of origin are unknown. Spatter-like objects appear in 80a and b. Figure 81 Figure 82 Figure 83 Figure 81 is my rendition of a section taken from a photograph of another undated petroglyph, from New Mexico: a cross encircled by dots. It resembles a spatter.(7 ) Figure 82 is ...
39. Stairway to Heaven [Journals] [Aeon]
... East, Australia, and the tropical rain forests of South America, it is difficult to avoid drawing the conclusion that the respective traditions linking Mars with a celestial staircase reflect common observations of the movements of the red planet. Yet here, too, questions abound. For what could be the objective reference of the celestial staircase? So-called cup-and-ring petroglyphs showing variations of the heavenly ladder as the axis of the Saturnian configuration. (From a rock at Ilkley, Yorkshire, England.) The idea of a celestial staircase, it can be shown, is simply a variation upon the widespread theme of a World Pillar or axis mundi, the latter thought to extend along the polar axis ...
40. Velikovsky's Legacy [Articles]
... thought, and the origins of civilization (language, art, myth, religion, ritual, etc. ). Aside from the abundant mythical testimony, is there any physical evidence for this bizarre scenario? Actually the evidence is quite extensive as, indeed, must be the case if such events actually occurred. Consider the evidence from ancient petroglyphs, for example. It is well-known that prehistoric pictures of the "Sun" grace cave walls and prominent rocks around the world. Many of these petroglyphs-few of which bear much resemblance to the modern solar orb-commonly feature a disc with a central orb(s ) set within its center (See Figure One). The objective basis of ...
