182. The 1989 ISIS/SIS Nile Cruise [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... skies, but the luxury of an airconditioned boat and airconditioned transport to and from sites not situated right by the water's edge made the heat a minor inconvenience to those entranced by the magnificence of tombs and temples only viewed previously in two dimensions on the pages of books. In fact, there eventually proved to be more suffering caused by the over-efficient airconditioning in the lounge during afternoon lectures, than there was by the sun outside. The heat did prompt some, however, to question the climate of the region at the time the pyramids were built as it seemed inconceivable that people could have laboured many hours under those conditions. For those with a mind to relax, the setting of the 'Nile Rhapsody' was ideal as it slowly forged its way upstream between palm trees and banana plantations alive with egrets, and maize fields and mudbrick villages where the children rushed to line the banks to whistle and wave at our luxurious passing. Needless to say, however, that that half of the passengers with a background of revised/new chronologies and unorthodox curiosity were soon ...

184. Darkness Over Sinai (Where was Moses when the light went out?) [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... some charcoal to measure the stars in their courses and keep a record of what they found. I am not aware of any professional work of astronomy that tries to piece together the most likely sequence of discovery and observation that took place among the peoples of the middle East on this subject. Obviously relatively stable countries, such as Egypt, had a distinct advantage over weaker states, whose cities were often conquered in warfare and their temples and observatories torn down. In Egypt many useful alignments were included in the design of temples and pyramids, such as cardinal points, the solstices, and equinoxes. The ability to refer back to this kind of permanent record was not possible for nomads unless they had a fixed annual pattern of grazing such as exists in Iran, where summer pastures are in the Zagros Mountains and winter is passed on the plains giving the official keepers of religion repeated access to fixed observation posts. The constant search for fresh grazing means that nomadic pastoralists are constantly making and breaking camp. Even though the Israelites had no flocks or herds during their ...
185. Some observations from Jesse Lasken concerning the 'new chronology' [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... the major evidentiary conflicts which the 'conventional' and 'new' chronologists persist in ignoring (such as Herodotus or Velikovsky's Greek letter problem discussed at the beginning of Peoples of the Sea) and all the little problems, of which there are many besides the two discussed above, is one in which all or the great preponderance of the material now assigned to the 'New Kingdom' and much else besides is placed in a Ptolemaic context. Most of the rest of the material will almost certainly date after c.700 BC, although some of the pyramids (but not necessarily the temples and cemeteries near them) are probably from somewhat before that time. I would like to see the new chronologists act upon the lament at the end of Rohl's comment on page 29 and 'give up the contest'- except that it would be a shame if this were to entail throwing in the towel and conceding the validity of the conventional chronology. I would hope that they would redirect their knowledge and studies to perfecting the even more radical solutions that are being suggested in my work and also ...
186. The Lost History of Ireland: an enquiry into the pre-Christian History of the Gaels' by Emmet J. Sweeney [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... Thus Lugh (whom he equates with Mars) battled with Balor (Baal/Venus) in a legend which almost exactly matches the Greek myth of Perseus and Medusa. There were even Irish athletic matches, the Aonach Tailteann corresponding to the Greek Olympiads held, like the Greek ones, in August and apparently founded at a similar time, shortly before the arrival of the Gaels. The building of the great megaliths and stone circles is dated by Sweeney to the 8th and 7th centuries BC (to which centuries he also dates the Pyramids) and he refers to Irish tradition that the circles are 'beltanies'- dedicated to the 'Fire of Beal' (help!). Beal corresponds to Baal, Belinos and the Greek Apollo. Not only is there Irish tradition to support this identification, but the 6th century BC Greek writer Hecataeus is also quoted in confirmation. The book does not just rely on mythology- language and alphabet are also analysed to demonstrate strong links with the Phoenicians, with a written Irish alphabet predating the Greek adoption of the Cadmean alphabet. ...
187. Bookshelf [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1993 No 2 (Jan 1994) Home¦ Issue Contents Bookshelf Archaeo-astronomy- Venus rules Conversing with the Planets: How Science and Myth Invented the Cosmos, by Anthony Aveni. Times Books, 1992 ($ 21). Aveni started as an astronomer but became drawn to the study of pre-Columbian astronomy via a survey of the astral orientation of the pyramids of ancient Teotihuacan. This latest book is a readable account of what he sees as the ancient search for celestial order seen basically through both Old World and New World examples of ancient obsession with the planets, in particular, Venus. Natural Selection and the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics are Dead The Origins of Order: Self-Organization and Selection in Evolution, by Stuart A. Kauffman. Oxford University Press (£ 75). Kauffman argues that the Darwinian view that natural selection could have produced the complex order in nature is inadequate. The new science of complexity suggests that complex dynamic systems are self organizing and that natural selection only has a small part in the subsequent evolution of ...

189. Enigmatic Stone Forts Of The American Midwest [Science Frontiers Website]
... Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Enigmatic Stone Forts Of The American Midwest From diverse sources, J.D. Singer has drawn together a fascinating compendium of large stone forts and walled structures west of the Alleghenys. From Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, and all across the Midwest come descriptions of stone structures of almost heroic proportions: A wall 5 to 12 feet high and almost a mile long at Fort Hill, Ohio; Two big walls at Fourteen Mile Creek, Indiana; Two massive stone walls or pyramids under Rock Lake, Wisconsin; and many more. Ignorance surrounds these structures. Who built them and when? Some are likely forts, for they are paralleled by ditches. Others seem to have no defensive value. The Moundbuilders may have hand a hand in some. Madoc and his wandering Welshmen are blamed for at least one wall!
