152. SIS Conference 2002: Ages still in Chaos [SIS Internet Digest $]
... delivering impressive lectures... and with no notes at all! (at least I did not see him refer to any). His lecture was quite detailed and discussed the possibilities of a unification of three different middle-eastern chronologies. As I remember, these differences could solve a lot of outstanding problems of chronology concerning Pyramid dating, the Exodus period and subsequent. Apparently, a lot of these dates can be meaningfully unified into a common denominator and there was evidence to back up these claims. I think Emmet claimed that the Pyramids for instance, were built around 1000 B.C or slightly later, but definitely not 2500 B.C. as currently accepted by the mainstream establishment. After lunch, a new twist (to me at least), was offered by one, Dr. Eugen Gabowitsch. His lecture was entitled 'AD Ages in Chaos: A Russian point of View'. I found his lecture a little difficult to follow because his idea of misplaced chronology involves placing certain events not just several hundreds of years later than currently accepted (Velikovsky et.al), ...
153. Some Preliminary Remarks About Thera and Atlantis [Kronos $]
... by anyone's standards, what of those numbers? If they are to be divided by 10, would any Egyptian of the 6th century say his civilization was only 800 years old? By the standard chronology Athena would have blessed Egypt with civilization only towards the end of the 18th Dynasty. By the revised chronology that blessing would have fallen during the days of the Hyksos incursion, which, in fact, put a damper on Egyptian civilization. By anyone's chronology this falls centuries after the erection of Egypt's greatest monuments to civilization, the Pyramids and Sphinx. Furthermore, when Herodotus visited Egypt ca. 150 years after Solon, he was told (Book 11.142) that Egypt's first king ruled 341 generations or 11,340 years before the start of the 26th Dynasty (ca. 11,440 years before Solon). Granted that the priests lied to Herodotus, still the Egyptians did tell such tales to the Greeks. The figure 9,000 years fits that pattern better than does 900. The latter number, would, by the new chronology, have to ...
154. Earth Magic: A Review by FRANCIS HITCHING [Kronos $]
... which Velikovsky has dealt in detail are: planetary collisions, reversals of the earth's magnetic polarity, the significance of the 23-l/2 ecliptic angle, intense heating of the stones at Avebury, the collapse of some stones on Salisbury Plain, and piezoelectric effects in quartz, such that pressure and electric charge prove to be mutually interactive. In addition, I cannot help wishing that Hitching had dealt at greater length with two other topics that he mentions only in passing. The first of these is late megalithic structures, ranging from the pyramids of 4th dynasty Egypt to the Great Stone Heads of Easter Island. (Interestingly, although he never delineates a specific Megalithic Period in his text, he implicitly dates it in two graphic figures. In the former of these, he terminates megalithism about 700 B.C. and, in the latter, about 1500 B.C. No catastrophist could fail to note the striking coincidence between these dates and those posited by Velikovsky for Earth's destructive encounters with Mars and Venus, respectively.) The other topic is that of anomalous aerial phenomena, ...

157. Notes on this issue: Pensee IVR X [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 4 No 5: (Winter 1974-75) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered X" Home¦ Issue Contents Notes on this Issue Stonehenge, Woodhenge, and the other megalithic monuments located throughout Britain and elsewhere have spawned more theorizing through the centuries than almost any other relics of the human past (excepting, of course, the pyramids and the Sphinx). In recent years these monuments have been proclaimed observatories; and the astronomical sophistication assigned to their builders borders on the fantastic. Dr. Euan MacKie (p. 5) examines these claims and finds them correct, at least in part; his own fieldwork has provided one of the most impressive pieces of evidence supporting the astronomical interpretation-all of which renders the megalithic monuments crucial for testing both uniformitarian and catastrophic theories. In "Megalithic Astronomy and Catastrophism," MacKie assesses the evidences with admirable lucidity. As a bonus, he grants us a preview of his forthcoming book on Stonehenge. Velikovsky (p. 21) comes forth with another one of those chapters from the unpublished sequels to Ages ...

... man. Again most of the material is from standard sources, Nature heading the field, closely followed by the American Antiquarian and American Anthropologist, though there is a wider time-span, some late eighteenth century items being included. Starting with fossil footprints and giant skeletons the collection proceeds with cup-marks, petroglyphs, legends of gods and giants, American Indian astronomy, Celtic remains in Jamaica, ancient metallurgy and Noah's Ark, and ends with an extensive section on structural artefacts such as temples, dolmens, menhirs, vitrified forts, henges, pyramids, obelisks and ancient tunnels and mines. Astronomical alignments naturally figure prominently in this section starting with the pioneering work of Lockyer and others and going up to C. A. Newham's article on Stonehenge in Nature (1966). (Thom does not appear in this volume). The two volumes of Strange Phenomena (which are not to hand), are uniform with the above and cover curious geophysical events, including giant hailstones ball lightning, falls of fish, luminous portents of earthquakes, the Andes glow et al. ...
159. Megalithic Astronomy [SIS C&C Review $]
... same geographical position as at present. If they were not, the whole relationship between the megalithic alignments and the present celestial latitudes would have been disrupted and it would have been impossible to obtain peaks of declination in the way described. This does not mean that the direction of the pole- that is, its angle in relation to the plane of the Earth's orbit -was the same then as it is now, and there is clear evidence from the sites themselves that it was not. The close orientation of the sides of the pyramids at Gizeh (c. 2600 B.C.) towards the meridian tells the same story: the geographical location of the poles cannot have changed during the last 4.5 thousand years at least. The most important of the megalithic sites for our purpose are those claimed to be solar, since we may be sure that accurate observations of the Sun were essential if an exact calendar was required. The yearly cycle of movements of the Sun is also the most obvious sign of the passing seasons and of the stability of the heavens. The ...

... ; cave drawings in Africa and elsewhere, the Mayan calendar; the Piri Re'is Map: were these puzzling relics created by visitors from other worlds? Dr White is Senior Lecturer in Prehistory at the University of Sydney, and would be the last to claim that this highly readable book is written from a disinterested viewpoint. Examining these mysteries from the past, he provides answers rooted in archaeological orthodoxy. In each case we look at," he writes, "we can show that ancient men were able to carve statues, build pyramids and move mountains... I also demonstrate that ancient maps are not based on satellite photographs (and) that astronauts did not have their portraits painted by primitive man..." This "refreshing call to sanity" (to quote the publishers) limits itself to debunking those extraterrestrial influences supposed to have come in ships. In explaining some of the stranger prehistoric artefacts, Dr mentions that earlier civilisations saw great importance in the state of the skies, but, like most established scientists, seeks not to reason why ...
