21. IGNIS E COELO [Mythopedia Website]
... the bird is variously described, sometimes with wings so large that one could cover two men. The concept is interesting because of similar lightning or thunderbirds in other parts of the world. A Zulu informant discussed it as follows: ‘ A man may think it is red; again he sees it is not so, it is green. But if he looks earnestly he may say ‘ No, it is something between the two colors as I am looking at it.’ [8 The Zulu are among the many tribes in southern Africa ... too, Horus defeated the serpentine Set [31. The association between Horus and the colour red was particularly well known. The god bore the epithet Hor-tesher, ‘ the red Horus ’ [32. Harakhte, a form of Horus, has been identified with the planet Mars [33. Other Egyptian bird-gods were Shu, identical with the goose which laid the world egg [34, Thoth, who had the head of an ibis [35, and the Bennu or Phoenix, but the latter is not a thunder bird in ...
22. The Saturn Problem [SIS C&C Review $]
... backwards in travelling' [9. The Hindu name for Mars, Skanda, meaning the 'jumping one' [10, probably had the same origin. This leaping behaviour might explain why Mars is always a youthful deity in ancient myth. The planet is also conspicuously red, a fitting colour for the blood-stained god of war. Similarly, of all the planets Mercury moves the most rapidly, which suits a god who presided over a wide range of areas from travels and communications to the power of phallic erection. Thus many of ... to the outer planets Saturn and Jupiter, needs investigation. A simple mechanism is offered to account for many of the characteristics attributed to Saturn-deities, and a catastrophist speculation offered to explain how the idea of a 'divine succession' of planetary deities may have started. The planet Saturn appears to us as a tiny speck of light in the night sky, one most of us would have great difficulty identifying. Yet this inconspicuous object appears to have once been revered- by ancient civilisations in countries as widely separated as Greece and China- ...
23. More on Jonathan Swift abd the Moons of Mars (Vox Populi) [Kronos $]
... a mere collection of letters-so many A's, so many B's, and so on. Kepler again tried to read the cryptogram and came up with the sentence: "Macula rufa in Jove est gyratur mathem etc." which in translation reads: "There is a red spot in Jupiter which rotates mathematically." The wondrous thing is: how could Kepler have known of the red spot in Jupiter, then not yet discovered? It was discovered by J. D. Cassini in the 1660's, after the time of Kepler and ... Swift's figures are invalidated, except that the Laputan orbital periods do not conform to Kepler's Third Law of planetary motion, which states that the ratio of the square of the orbital period to the cube of its orbital radius is the same for all satellites of a given planet. Suspecting an error in interpretation of the Chinese time scales, McDowell computed the orbital periods using Swift's orbital radii, comparing them with modern values for Phobos. Using McDowell's data in his Table I and Table II we have the following: TABLE I Properties of ...
24. Khima [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... also Proclus ? summary of the system of Philolaos in his In Euclide I. 402. 21: ? Cronos in fact sustains all humid and cold substances, and Ares all the nature of fire.? The other name for Mars in rabbinical Hebrew Maadim signifies ? red ? or ? reddening.? Mars has a reddish color. [These astrological qualities of the two planets are described at length in Ptolemy ? s Tetrabiblos II.9. Cf. R. Klibansky, E. Panofsky, and F. Saxl, Saturn and Melancholy ... Venus did not appear in its seasons. Apparently the other members of the group were planets, too. And actually we could have started by the disclosure that in the rabbinical literature Khima is referred to as Mazal Khima. (7) In Hebrew mazal means ? planet.? Then which planet is Khima? If we can find out which of the planets is Khima, then we may know also to which planet the Talmud assigned the physical cause of the world inundation. As we have seen, the Biblical texts by themselves ...
25. The Poem of Erra [Aeon Journal $]
... , etc. (33) Neither scholar, however, considered the possibility that Erra might bear a relationship to the planet Mars, though Nergal's identification with Mars is well-known. This is hardly to be wondered at as most scholars consider the identification of Nergal with the red planet to be entirely arbitrary in nature, a product of Oriental astrological speculation. It has been our purpose in this series of essays, however, to show that the cult of Nergal cannot be understood apart from his identification with Mars, the planetary aspect of ... the hero. We began our investigation by comparing Heracles, the greatest of Greek heroes, with Gilgamesh, the most famous of Oriental heroes. Evidence gathered from ancient chroniclers, myth, and cult, indicates that Heracles and Gilgamesh were in reality but personifications of the planet Mars, and their mythological careers a commemoration of cataclysms associated with that planet. (1) In the present essay we shall continue this line of investigation by considering the Akkadian Erra, the bellicose hero of the Poem of Erra. One of the most remarkable ...

... with Aphrodite by an anonymous Syrian historian; with Kaukabta, 'the female star;' with Balthi, by Isaac of Antioch; and finally with Lucifer, the morning star, by Jerome." [8 The ancient Sumerians knew the planet Venus as Ninsi'ana, "Red lady of heaven." [9 This name is attested in inscriptions of Amar-Suen (conventionally dated to 2046-2038 B.C.) and shortly thereafter in the sacred marriage hymn of Iddin-Dagan (c. 19 74-1954 B.C.). In ancient Persia, Venus was identified ... holds that these particular mythical themes commemorate specific historical events witnessed by ancient man the world over-- namely, spectacular cataclysms associated with the respective planets. The Lady of Heaven A survey of the mythology surrounding Venus reveals a vast set of endlessly recurring themes: the planet as mother goddess; the planet as agent of death and destruction; the planet as "eye" of heaven; the planet as "fire-breathing" dragon; the planet as witch-like hag; the planet as paramour of Mars; and countless others. Comparative analysis ...

... so many A ’ s, so many B ’ s, and so on. Kepler again tried to read the cryptogram and came up with the sentence: “Macula rufa in Jove est gyratur mathem etc.” which in translation reads: “There is a red spot in Jupiter which rotates mathematically.” The wondrous thing is: how could Kepler have known of the red spot in Jupiter, then not yet discovered?

Cassini in the 1660 ’ s, after the time of ... the letters of which the sentences were composed, or, if the author of the cryptogram so wished, the letters were re-assembled to make a different sentence. The second way was chosen by Galileo when he thought he had discovered that Saturn is “a triple” planet, having observed appendices on both sides of Saturn, but not having discerned that they were but a ring around the planet, a discovery reserved for Christian Huygens in 1659, half a century later. Kepler tried to read the cryptogram of letters recombined into a ...
28. Saturn's Revolving Crescent [SIS Internet Digest $]
... happening in the inner solar system to keep me busy. But I will toss in a few facts and ideas for you to think about. Uranus and Neptune seem to form a pair, in size and appearance of their blue atmospheres- believed to be due to red light absorption in methane. They both have oddly offset magnetic fields which may have something to tell us about their different electrical nature. Neptune is the only planet to show changes in brightness of up to 4 percent. Neptune (17.2 Earth masses) is both ... massive and dense than Uranus (14.5 Earth masses). The outermost planet in the solar system, Neptune's orbit is more circular than most machine shops could reproduce. Neptune's major moon, Triton, has the same kinds of electrical furrows and lack of craters as Jupiter's moon, Europa. These two moons also have a bright, pinkish surface. Maybe they are twins? Triton has a little atmosphere, chiefly nitrogen. (Saturn's moon Titan has a largely nitrogen atmosphere as well). Triton orbits Neptune retrogradely, which argues for ...

... impressive. "And see that you make them after the pattern for them, which is being shown to you on the mountain." [16 Yahweh's 'commands were not so easy to execute: "Upon the occasion of the erection of the Tabernacle, God gave red, blue, black and white fire to see and imitate. To the question of how this might be possible, God answered: "I fabricate my glory; you make your own colors..." [17 A legend conveys what must have been ... through the air, "as he flew to the assistance of the people under his tutelage." [1 This tutelary angel was also called Uzza by the Jews [2, strangely, because the name is found among the ancient Arabian people in reference to the planet Venus [3. It is to be identified with Seth, god of the Hyksos and the anti-god of the Egyptians, with Lucifer, and Phaeton-Typhon. Hence the "Egypt" referred to is already the conquered Egypt. Uzza is also Azazel, the devil ...
30. William H. Stiebing, Jr., and Immanuel Velikovsky [The Velikovskian $]
... and repeatedly had close encounters with Earth. If such near-misses had occurred, the orbits of the moons would have been severely disturbed and the probability is that Mars would have lost them to either Venus or Earth, both of which are larger [in mass than the Red Planet. (39) What Stiebing and Mulholland have left out of this discussion is that there is no scenario based on gravitational theory to explain the orbits of Deimos and Phobos. They have, over the years, also failed to explain the evidence that meteorites ... series of such encounters in the same millennium become so high that they make the theory untenable. (3) But the fact of the matter is that it is quite probable that a body on an elliptical orbit between Jupiter and the Earth, once it encounters a planet like Earth, will return to encounter that body again and again. Paolo Maffei, in 1980, described three different comets and their interactions with the planet Jupiter. Although it can be argued that, since Jupiter is a giant among the planets, having much ...
