11. Catastrophism And Planetary History [Journals] [Kronos]
... western European. Some historians attempt to dodge the question by suggesting that "history" does not begin until there are written records and while the Chinese and Mayans claim some credit in this department, again the development of historical knowledge is understood as the struggles and triumphs of western peoples. In surveying the written records little consideration is given to petroglyphs and pictographs of non-western peoples because of the inability of western scholars to decipher them. The added difficulty with non-western, non-literate representations of history is that these people, for the most part, only recorded in pictures those incidents that impressed them and, lacking a chronology, they are virtually useless in attaching them to any recognized time-scale for ...
12. On the Crab Supernova of 1054 [Journals] [Kronos]
... , what appears in Taurus today appeared closer to Gemini in 1054. Thus, we have unambiguous, independent sightings of an extraordinary celestial event from three cultures - Chinese, Japanese and Arabic. It is clear from the contexts that the records of these sightings are indigenous to the exclusion of a diffusionary explanation. With regard to certain pictographs and petroglyphs in the American Southwest, purported to record the Crab Supernova, this is another matter. It is possible that Sagan may have overstated the validity of these drawings which appear at several sites and show the juxtaposition of a crescent object above a star-like object. The orientation of the crescent with respect to the "star" is not uniform ...
13. Celestial fireworks [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... list of symbols under which these apparitions have been described by the myth-makers. The motifs listed underneath the pictures mention some of these, just to give an impression how it all works. The second slideshow intends to give you a general impression how these former prodigies in an ancient sky were reflected in works of traditional art. Many thousands of petroglyphs are recorded, coming from all parts of the world, and a vast majority of them exhibit patterns whose meaning is not obvious and lacks a clear reference in the natural world as we know it today. Yet at the same time they come remarkably close to our reconstruction of the former skies. The idea is that ancient rock art ...
14. Maori Legends about Historical Impact Disaster [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... event that largely destroyed the Moa Hunter Culture. One poem and one dirge exists which relate the destruction of the Moa Hunter culture with the splitting of the horns of the moon which fell to earth causing this mayhem. Rock art exists today which depicts men fleeing from falling chevrons, which have the horns of the chevron split. A further petroglyph exists which shows a man hands upheld in fear looking at a new moon with the lower horn of the moon split. Other motif or logo type petroglyphs exist which support a catastrophe. I will describe one, which depicts a Lizard on a crescent, on a crescent with a split horn. The lizard is the representational form of ...

16. News from the Internet [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... So they tried to be more specific. But that wasn't easy for things' you don't know! The following descriptions were used between 1830 and 1977: Lapidary Art, Ring Cuttings, Sculptured Stones, Circular Carvings, Incised Markings, Ancient Sculpturings of Cups and Concentric Rings, Incised Sculpturings, Cup-marked Stones, Cup-and-ring Carvings, Rock Carvings and Petroglyphs. It was not until 1977 that Ronald B. W. Morris introduced the, now fully accepted, summarizing phrase: "Rock Art" for the abstract open-air rock carvings in Britain as a whole. By doing so, this special rock art category was linked to the great worldwide "Rock Art" tradition. Plasma Physics – ...

... arrangement of the solar system in early times. The upshot of the theory is that a number of drastic and turbulent changes in the solar system a few thousands of years ago spawned the germs of the intellectual heritage of mankind, including all forms of religion. The spectacular events taking place in the sky were recorded on stone in thousands of petroglyphs found all over the world, enacted in thousands of rituals celebrated until the present day, and narrated in thousands of myths. The data presented on this website is divided in various sections: 1. Mythodology' contains most of the dry stuff'. It explains the theoretical background of our views on mythology and offers a new and ...

20. Shattering The Myths Of Darwinism by Richard Milton (Book review) [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... writes that New Zealand lava, which is assigned an antiquity of 465,000 years by the potassium-argon methods, is assigned one of only a thousand years by the radiocarbon method. Yet he further notes that radiocarbon dating frequently conflicts not only with other radiometric methods and with historical records but also with contemporary observation, as when a South African petroglyph painted in 1991 was carbon-dated to about 800 AD. Without using the technical phrase "polystrate fossils," Milton illustrates it by citing forty-foot trees found standing upright in coal seams on several continents. The very existence of such fossils violates consensual chronology, which, if taken at face value, requires us to date the roots of these ...
