21. Leonardo da Vinci: Rocks, Fossils, and Time [Kronos $]
... ROCKS AND FOSSILS Wandering through the Alps and the mountains of Tuscany, Leonardo was fascinated by the beauty and detail of the geological and paleontological evidence about him and their far-reaching implications; his own magnificent landscapes attest to his love for physical nature. To Leonardo, the rock strata with their fossils suggested a story considerably different from the interpretations given by most thinkers in antiquity. (Although he was the father of biology and made contributions to taxonomy and embryology, Aristotle himself had held to the eternal fixity of all terrestrial plant and animal ... dogmatic Aristotelian, Ptolemaic, and Medieval conceptions of things. In fact, a new anthropology and cosmology were emerging. At first, the Italian Renaissance saw the restoration of the humanities. There was a revitalised interest in the culture of the Classical World, especially its art, literature and philosophy. The scholars of the Humanist Renaissance believed in the dignity of man and the realisation of human happiness through intelligent inquiry. Detailed descriptions of nature and rigorous experimentation by the brilliant thinkers of the time further established the foundation of the modern world-view ...
22. Our Rock Who Art in Heaven [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:1 (May 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents World Wide Web focus Our Rock Who Art in Heaven www.sinclairpress.com This book compares stories in the Bible with stories in mythology with current information/speculation about comets, meteor showers, and impact events Mythology isn't about precession or morality, and the Bible isn't a history book. In this iconoclastic work, Ms. Brook explores the Bible as mythology- as a history, not of ordinary human events, but of extraordinary celestial events for which astronomers ... have plenty of evidence. That evidence testifies to the arrival of a giant comet in our inner solar system, perhaps as early as 20,000 years ago. As the trapped comet collided with our planet's nearby neighbours and its own offspring, fireballs exploded overhead and meteorites rained repeatedly over the Earth. The people of ancient times could point out their gods and goddesses- they were visible celestial bodies. A short time ago, they besieged this planet. At least one of those gods, the Bible's "Most High," ...

25. Darwinism In Archeology! [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 105: May-Jun 1996 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Darwinism in archeology! Archeologists were initially attracted to Pedra Furada, in northeastern Brazil, by the area's rich and colorful rock art, some of which would not be allowed on the Internet! But it is not the rock art that is controversial about Pedra Furada; it is the 595 pieces of quartz selected by French archeologist N. Guidon. These bits of stone closely resemble humancrafted choppers ... scrapers, and cutting tools. Indeed, if they had been found in more recent deposits, they would have been judged "man-made" by everyone. The trouble is that Guidon has dated them at 50,000 BP- a date mainstream archeologists cannot swallow. Any New World dates earlier than 12,000 BP, maybe 20,000 BP for a few daring souls, have to be erroneous. How are the Pedra Furada chipped stones explained by mainstream archeologists? They are "geofacts, not artifacts. They were created ...
26. Mons Veneris [Aeon Journal $]
... Cochrane During the course of the past several decades, a wealth of evidence has come to light supporting Velikovsky's thesis that the planets have only recently settled into their current orbits. To date, the testimony of the ancients themselves has provided the most telling evidence. Ancient rock art, archaeoastronomical traditions surrounding the respective planets, and mythical traditions associated with the various planetary deities, each offer dramatic proof of this thesis. Critics, however, continue to object that claims as extraordinary as those of Velikovsky and the Saturnists require extraordinary evidence to ... believed. With this catch phrase they dismiss at once all testimony from ancient mythology as being unduly reliant upon interpretation and, hence, ultimately subjective in nature. Evidence from ancient art is similarly dismissed as the product of creative imagination. Archaeoastronomical traditions, if they are admitted into court at all, are deemed inconclusive. It is with these criticisms in mind that I set out to find a source of evidence that is more objective in nature and less susceptible to ad hoc interpretations, whether on the part of the critic or catastrophist ...
27. Psychology and Ancient Astronomical Discovery [Kronos $]
... as cave paintings, relief sculpture, and statuary. The few thousand engraved and carved mobiliary artifacts... from the Upper Paleolithic represent a diverse body of evidence. They document a complex use of manufactured art and symbol.... The decorated caves and rock walls of the period are regional and specialised aspects of the more general, widespread tradition of symbol usage represented by the mobiliary materials.(50) From the early Aurignacian, and extending into later periods of the Stone-Age, the engraved materials show a variety of ... astronomy, there has been little scientific interest in the question until recently. New discoveries in archeology have made it clear that prehistoric cultures were much more complex than formerly believed. One researcher, Alexander Marshack, has conducted an exhaustive re-examinanation of Upper Paleolithic artifacts and cave art His conclusions significantly affect the conventional evaluation of Upper Paleolithic cultures. The period currently is theorised to have begun with the appearance of biologically fully modern humans, around 35,000 years ago. Extending downward to around 10,000 B.C., the sequence of ...
28. Plasma and World Mythology [Thunderbolts Website]
... ’ s prehistoric sky are not confined to images carved or painted on rocks. If ancient artists recorded the life-like configurations of plasma instabilities, we can be sure that the witnesses would also have told stories about the life-like movements and transformations of the instabilities. And if rock art exhibits identical forms around the world, the stories should do the same. Ancient narratives, passed down from prehistoric times, are called “mythology”. At the dawn of recorded history, every culture was centered around a body of such narratives, harking ... to a prior age of celestial wonders. The myths commemorated the activities of gods, goddesses, and cosmic warriors, and in particular the ordeals they faced when serpents, dragons, or other monsters invaded their celestial domain. A comparison of the themes in these myths — the plots, the characters, the details of divine habitations and relationships — reveals two enigmatic forms of parallelism: First, among widely separated cultures the same mythic themes stand out, and these archetypes are all intimately linked to each other. The land of the ...
