... from ancient myth and folklore, the artistic record likewise provides compelling evidence that the planets only recently moved on radically different orbits. Consider, for example, the three images depicted in figure two. As I have documented 8, such images are ubiquitous in the prehistoric rock art of every inhabited continent. Hitherto they have been interpreted as drawings of the Sun by virtually all leading authorities on ancient art and religion, this despite the fact that they do not have any obvious resemblance to the current solar orb. Figure two It is ... that the ancient sun-god was depicted in the very same manner by the earliest civilizations in Egypt and Mesopotamia. Figure three, for example, shows an Akkadian seal in which the Shamash disc is represented as an "eye-like" object, as in the first image in figure two. Figure four shows the Shamash disc as an eight-pointed star or wheel. Figure five shows the Shamash disc as an eight-petalled flower. Numerous other variations upon these common themes could be provided, all impossible to reconcile with the appearance of the current solar orb ...

In line 17 she describes it as full of laurel, olive trees, vines, and nightingales. She urges him to sit on the rock (unpolished, virgin rock). At line 36 a stranger enters, and asks Oedipus to leave his seat, for it is holy ground, not to be stepped on.

The word 'sophistes' is employed to mean 'poet', by Euripides, Rhesus 924, and by Pindar, Isthmian V: 28. 'Sophos', skilled in an art, or clever, is used especially of those who understand divine matters, as in The Bacchae, line 186, where Kadmos asks the advice of Teiresias in the matter of dress, dance steps, and thyrsus management. The poet had a rhabdos, staff ...

Was it also significant enough to justify a scientific approach to 'watching out for doomsday' [55? Astronomers expected 'Doomsday Rock', as the one kilometre diameter asteroid '1990 MU' was called, to hit the earth in 1992. Concentration was high after another body of that size had passed just 170,000 kilometres from the earth in January 1991- a 'pretty close shave' ... seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.'

... and also used even more recently against my work. In this itself is a measure of victory. MULHOLLAND Two astronomers confronted me on the panel: Professor J. Derral Mulholland, whose field is celestial mechanics, and Professor Sagan, whose field is planetary atmospheres, rock compositions, and biological conditions. Mulholland said:... the celestial mechanics of Newton and Newcomb are no longer the ultimate measure. The celestial mechanics of 1974 is a living, vital science that admits of non-gravitational effects, of electromagnetic interactions... ... , to Rome, to Israel, to Egypt, and so on, would not have been misled by the simplistic theory that 360-day years were merely convenient approximations. Sagan moves to cave paintings (where he finds only a picture of a supernova) and to ancient art generally and asks: "If the Velikovskian catastrophes occurred, why are there no contemporary graphic records of them?" As a novice in the field, Sagan should perceive that the great majority of ancient contemporary art is dominated by the theme of global catastrophes and ...

... He explained the archaeological significance should 1159 turn out to be correct. Porter, in C&CR 1998:1, reported the advent of micron-particle analysis from ice cores and said this had now showed that the 1628BC Thera date was now ruled out, since volcanic rock samples from Thera did not match the particles in the ice core. If the process yields a positive match for the 1159BC event, a result which could be reported quite soon, this would lower the dates of Late Minoan pottery by Velikovskian proportions, bringing the ... of Egyptian chronology that it was used to date the entire contents of the Late Helladic graves at Mycenae to not later than about 1300BC. Then, at other sites around the Mediterranean, artefacts and everything else that was obviously contemporary with them were awarded Egyptian dates. Art historians and other scholars studying the history of architectural and technological designs and developments saw the obvious and close affinities between supposedly 14-13th century objects and those clearly datable in Greece, Syria and Mesopotamia to a period some 500-700 years later. Then a very real problem arose ...

... Wensinck. (31) To the Hebrews Sinai, Horeb, Ebol, and Gerezim were all conceived as images of a twin-peaked mountain, states Jeremias. (32) In the primeval Tyre (paradise), according to the description of Nonnus, a "double rock" rises from the ocean. In its centre is an olive (the central sun) which automatically emits fire, setting it in a perpetual blaze. (33) The Syrian and Hittite great gods stand equally balanced upon two mountains. (34) In ... though always identified by scholars as the lunar sphere, Sin is never presented as a "half-moon," "three quarters moon" or "full moon." He is simply Udsar "the crescent." And however incongruous the relationship might appear today, Babylonian art continually presents Sin as the lower half of the enclosed sun-cross 48. Various Mesopotamian versions of the sun-in-crescent. Did this relationship of the Sin-crescent to Saturn and his enclosure originate in a haphazard combination of once independent symbols-- or in a fundamental equation? The ...
