... is a highly arid region with little and sporadic rainfall. Therefore, the major elements of erosion available to do damage to limestone are wind and sand. When a layered rock face is weathered by wind-blown sand, its softer layers are more eroded than its hard ones which stick out of the profile, giving the appearance of a stack of ... record. Typical of the outcries reported are these responses: " 'That's ridiculous, ' scoffed Peter Lecovara, assistant curator of the Egyptian Department in Boston's Museum of Fine Arts (Boston Globe, Oct. 23, 1991).

... a common axis of rotation during that primeval period, Saturn remained stationary in the polar skies, "rising" and "setting" upon the same polar mountain. Neolithic rock art, in fact, records just such an image in abundance on every inhabited continent. (99) These images are routinely interpreted as solar in nature despite the ... archaeoastronomy: a revaluation of all values, to paraphrase Nietzsche. The ancient cosmos must needs be reconstructed from the countless bits and pieces of ancient myth, ritual, and art, not unlike a paleontologist would reconstruct a dinosaur from a few teeth and bones. All-important here is the comparative method. Only by comparing traditions from around the world ...

They were known as stoics, whose most famous spokesman caught the temper of rationalism of that time with the following statement: "Life is short, art is long, experience painful, judgment difficult."

135. In Search of the Exodus [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... the text. The mountain of god (Exodus 24)  for example, has analogies with Har Karkom in the Negev Mountains, which contains many examples of rock art and a platform with 12 menhirs corresponding to the 12 pillars of Exodus 24. At the very top of the mountain is a rock formation reminiscent of Exodus 33 ... and yet the occupation remains are dated to early MBI (immediate post-EB). By-passing the heavenly significance of the 12 menhirs and the EB temple on Har Karkom (with biblical antecedents), the information does not imply that we must plump for an EB Exodus. On the contrary, the Negev data may illustrate a fusion of Canaanite and ...

... amounts on the Moon; and this would then yield unusually high ages for samples dated by the potassium-argon method." (126) This is just what occurred when moon rocks were first brought back to Earth. The excess of argon was "unexpected" and made dating "experimentally uncertain." Dates yielded were "embarrassingly high" and ... of Asimov becomes evidence for Velikovsky. That is to say, when Asimov's left hand denies what his right hand is doing, when the unconscious assertion of catastrophe in his art is so powerful while the conscious demolition of it in his science is so feeble, we may legitimately suspect that such self-contradictory behavior comes not from his intellect but from ...

... done it - the handles were perfectly symmetrical, about 50mm wide, and each handle had a hole approximately 3-4mm diameter drilled right through it. Gabbro is a rough igneous rock, aragonite is a hard carbonate and diorite is one of the hardest igneous rocks.

We have no other ancient likeness of the Philistines to compare with; however, if we page through the records of excavations in various countries and photographs of ancient art, we find again the crownlike helmets that we know from the bas-reliefs of Ramses III as the headgear of the Pereset. We find them on the heads of Persian ...
