321. Catastrophe and Divine Fires [Books] [de Grazia books]
... upon the very words and acts of Moses, that the Israelites shunned the gods of the sky-the sun and moon, planets, and stars and would not fashion religious images. Although Yahweh is reconciled to the existence of other gods, he is zealous to be first and exclusive with his chosen people, on pain of their destruction ... Apis . Enough sights, apparitions, effects, events, and experiences come with a large-body near-collision to supply readily all the personnel and myths of a full-fledged religion. Yet Moses was not alone in rejecting the absolute identification of a comet as a mainstay of his god. Generally so-called planetary, solar, or lunar religions are ...
322. The Lord Of Light [Journals] [Aeon]
... (89) A problem may exist with Rosenberg's assumption that the Sakaia was in any way connected with Sirius. It is difficult, if not impossible, to see what religious or astronomical role Sirius could play in either the river-bereft country of Persia or the land of Mesopotamia whose riverine overflows were completely unpredictable and independent of regularized astronomical phenomena. ... 1980. Introduction Among other things, Worlds in Collision presented- within the framework of a cosmic catastrophic scenario- a compelling case for a common astral origin of the world's religions. Later authors- notably Cardona, Greenberg, Sizemore, D. Talbott, Cochrane, Maccoby, Tresman, and Newgrosh- have provided additional support for this hypothesis ...
323. The Orion Mystery by Robert Bauval and Adrian Gilbert [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... quite exciting - meteors were worshipped universally and this was apparently very true of Egypt also - but you would not think so if you read conventional and standard books on Egyptian religion. The Phoenix was depicted in art as a grey heron, or a crane, which was not accidental - they were migratory birds and it is clear that the ... my interest in the book was the way in which they saw an important role for meteors in the past, and it became obvious they played a dramatic role in Egyptian religio-myth. Unfortunately, the authors assumed meteors are simply meteors and they possess known and acceptable origins. I had the impression that if Bauval and Gilbert had taken on board ...
324. Saturn's Children [Books] [de Grazia books]
... in Greek myth but everywhere). Humans developing from hominids very much like themselves, employed the most obvious and personally salient analogies. The mountain of sexualized religious myths rose like a new volcano. Saturn the god was identified by the Romans with the planet Saturn. As sun and king of gods, Saturn's names were many ... who had overburdened and oppressed Mother Earth, who had buried her children under the Earth, lost his virile member. The perennial connections among astronomy, geology, sex and religion were reinforced (not only in Greek myth but everywhere). Humans developing from hominids very much like themselves, employed the most obvious and personally salient ...
325. Velikovsky and the Problem of Planetary Identification [Journals] [Aeon]
... book that a Sirius-related event was responsible for great cataclysms during the second millennium B.C . (16) Cultural Evolution and Planetary Identification The evolution and peregrinations of individual religious cults must also be taken into account when investigating the ancient's planetary identifications. It is known, for example, that Marduk replaced Enlil in the religious reforms initiated by ... primarily from Old World traditions. As comparative mythologists we all have a lot to learn from Velikovsky. First with regard to his brilliant insights into the planetary origins of ancient religion; and secondly from his oversights concerning the problems of planetary identifications. Indeed, as Nietzsche once observed, the errors of great men are often more fruitful than the ...
326. The Golden Age and Nova of Super Saturn [Books] [de Grazia books]
... skies opened after the lunar disaster, the new great god, Super Saturn, was visible dimly, through the clouds, to Earth's inhabitants. They had already been "religious" for millennia and might readily once more identify the sky objects with human forms and actions and project their hopes and fears upon the heavenly objects newly visible. Magic ... his fever left his body. The powers that acted in the Heavens were manifested to humans amidst increasing disaster. In terror, self-abasement and pleading, man created a Uranus-Heaven religion and hoped for cosmic tranquility. Unanimously the legends of the world acknowledge the human to be an imperfect creation; some have him created more than once, as for ...
... called him Antiochus the Pious, for the great zeal he had about religion. 3. Accordingly, Hyrcanus took this moderation of his kindly; and when he understood how religious he was towards the Deity, he sent an embassage to him, and desired that he would restore the settlements they received from their forefathers. So he rejected the ... the city, offered swine upon the altar, and sprinkled the temple with the broth of their flesh, in order to violate the laws of the Jews, and the religion they derived from their forefathers; for which reason our nation made war with him, and would never be reconciled to him; but for this Antiochus, all men ...
328. Homo Schizo -- the Catastrophic Evolution of Man [Articles]
... new breed was ready to give birth to a child, I guess everybody feared the death of the mother and consequently the death of the new child, and the first religious activities I would consider some kind of rituals to save the mother, to pray for the survival of the mother, so we wouldn't have a fertility ritual, we ... and Moses. That's the simplest tool. The club represents the major areas of human interest: skill, subsistence, economics, power, safety, authority, sexuality, religion, aesthetics. So that if we knew when the club was first carried, we could say that that was a sound basis for fixing the gestalt of creation in ...
329. Prehistory and Earth Models [Books]
... arrived at the point where an intensive attack must be made upon the area of the biochemical basis of individual differences, the emotional life of individuals and the spirit we call religious cannot be explained by biochemistry. Thus, science is faced with the problem of religion as an act of the whole man toward his environment and the material consequences of ... act. . . . The scientist in his laboratory is not sufficient, nor the believer in his church, nor the philosopher in his study. The quest for a really satisfactory morality, the struggle for social democracy, and the search for scientific truth depend to a great extent upon a spirit which has much in common with religious faith ...
330. Book Review [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... fantasy around his own unjustifiable identifications. In doing so he reveals the sloppiness and shallowness of his thinking, rapidly becoming silly and credulous when he turns to the evidence of religious art. The curious and heavily symbolic glyptic art of Mesopotamian cylinder-seals is a dangerous playground for speculations especially when the author - and presumably most of his readers - know ... by Peter James AT FIRST glance this well-produced and, on the whole, pleasantly written volume offers the promise of being a stimulating and serious attempt to reinterpret ancient Near Eastern religion and human prehistory. Relying on Babylonian and Biblical mythology in the main, and displaying some apparent erudition, Sitchin develops a model for the origins of civilisation that reminds ...
