That the Symplegades theme dates from prehistory is doubtless true. That its presence in the New World as well as the ... is attributable to diffusion is doubtful, however. Such traditions probably originated in response to catastrophic celestial events witnessed by primitive man the world over. Of the dozens of mythological motifs worthy of analysis from the career of Moses, one more will be mentioned here - his horns.

The circumstances of that disappearance, if they were known, would no doubt transform our understanding of American Prehistory. But the Olmecs have left no records save for their strange sculpture, calendrical inscriptions and the ruins of their buildings. Their end is as mysterious as were their ...
