151. Kadmos: The Primeval King [Kronos $]
... the ancient Norse, as fighting wars of chivalry on the road to becoming king of Denmark.(3) Such divinely-inspired history pervades the writings of the earliest historians. Herodotus and Diodorus were notorious in this regard. A perfect example is Diodorus' statement that Helios was the first king to rule over Egypt, Helios being, of course, a god of the Greeks.(4) A fact of great importance, recorded by Hesychius, Diodorus, and others, is that Helios was actually a Greek name for the planet Saturn. Writing of the astronomy of the Chaldeans, Diodorus observed that: "[ The planet named Kronos by the Greeks, which is the most conspicuous and presages more events such as are of greater importance than the others, they call the star of Helios."(5) The celestial identification of Helios raises a crucial point in our study of the primeval kings, for it is well known that many of the celebrated god-kings of the ancient world were identified with planets. To name but a few, this is the ...
152. The Trouble With Aztex [Kronos $]
... . As a colleague of ours recently put it, people like Ellenberger help to keep us on our toes and honest. Not that Ellenberger has accused me of dishonesty; but he did come close to it in relation to Robert Bass and his use of Hills' and Ovenden's work. Somehow I don't think that Ellenberger quite understood Bass' position nor, for that matter, the point I was attempting to make. But all that in its place below. My first "business of the day" concerns the "Child of Saturn" issue and, on this, I cannot really approve Ellenberger's attitude. My "continuing reticence" to "describe" what I mean by "Child of Saturn" is a lame excuse when used to condone the placing of words, which I never uttered, into my mouth. It is even lamer when used to ignore words that I did. My dismay had nothing to do with the speculations of others. What "chagrined" me was that these speculations attributed the ejection of the planet Venus from Saturn to my ...
153. The Kaaba [Kronos $]
... . Without wishing to cast doubt on Lenormant's description of the Venerian dove, we cannot accept the Kaaba as a Venerian shrine, or the Black Stone as a Venerian idol. Within the Kaaba,(20) or, as others would have it, perched upon its roof,(21) stood the figure of the god Hubal, considered the greatest of all Arabian idols.(22) And it is here that the truth begins to emerge for, as Hildegard Lewy pointed out, Hubal was the god of the planet Saturn.(23) This is not to say that Venus, as a dove, was not also worshipped there but it would seem that, in his youth, Venus was not the only planet that Mohammed worshipped. For some now forgotten reason, the cube had been a traditional representation of Saturn from ages past.(24) Even Johannes Kepler, in his Mysterium Cosmographicum, drew on this lore. His Polyhedra, a geometrical fancy meant to depict the correspondence of the relation between planetary orbital radii, represents Saturn's sphere ...
154. Maya Cosmos: A Saturnian Interpretation [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon VI:1 (Feb 2001) Home¦ Issue Contents Maya Cosmos: A Saturnian Interpretation Ken Moss Introduction A common objection to the acceptance of the Saturnian configuration is the mistaken belief that the New World, the Americas, do not have any (or very few) Saturn myths that corroborate those of the Old World. Similarly the Old World ones themselves are often dismissed out of hand with the somehow magical and fatal word "diffusion." [1 Maya Cosmos, a recent book on Mesoamerican cosmology, [2 indirectly speaks to this supposed lack of Saturnian material and one would be hard pressed to argue diffusion. It provides an excellent source of Maya myths which support the well-documented Saturnian scenarios of Dwardu Cardona, David Talbott, and Ev Cochrane. [3 As my title suggests, Maya Cosmos is the primary source for this paper as it brings together recent findings of the late 1980s and early 90s in all the various fields of study in the Maya world. This was an explosive time for the archaeologists, epigraphers, and linguists ...
155. Thoth Vol. IV, No. 1 Jan 15, 2000 [Thoth Website]
... live in this present time, and this time is the domain of right and wrong. It would be wrong to insist on using a slide rule to direct Galileo around Jupiter's moons. Just so, it's wrong for Established Science to refuse to look at Arp's findings of quantized intrinsic redshifts. Just so, it's wrong to overlook Juergen's insights into the electrical nature of the sun. It's wrong to ignore Alfven's admonition that plasmas don't behave the way theoreticians believe and that there are large-scale currents in space. It's wrong to dismiss the Saturn Theory as "merely myth" in blind defiance of the intelligibility in the data. Turning a deaf ear, a blind eye, and a closed mind to this astronomical mass of evidence is intellectually irresponsible. The domain of data has expanded immensely since Established Theories first became established. The early flakes of mysterious data have become an avalanche of anomalies. There are many facts that don't fit Established Theory; there are many facts that contradict Established Theory. Established Theory is increasingly fragmented. It's losing coherence and generality in a proliferation ...
156. Answers To Critics [Kronos $]
... in April of 1978, Robert Bass attempted to help Vaughan and me, by proposing that a "wild motion" of Jupiter could have taken up the excess energy that Vaughan and I had wanted to remove from our sequence of orbits. Bass repeated his proposal in August of 1980 at the KRONOS Seminar in San Jose. (Such a "wild motion" of Jupiter would involve Jupiter's undergoing significant orbital changes due to long-range interactions with neighboring planets, whether inner planets like Venus, Earth, and Mars, or outer planets like Saturn. Both orbital energy and orbital angular momentum would be transferred in such a process.) Actually, Bass had spoken to us privately about this matter at McMaster University in 1974. Vaughan and I had already suggested several other ways to accomplish the removal of energy, however and we did not really need to resort to the "wild motion" option provided by Bass. Whether it is or is not a viable option is, in any case, beyond my technical capacity to judge. What is not beyond my technical capacity ...
157. Sirius and Saturn [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 2000:1 "Proceedings of the SIS Silver Jubilee Event" Home¦ Issue Contents Sirius and Saturn by Lynn E. Rose Lynn F. Rose received both his BA in Ancient History and Classical Languages (majoring in Greek) and his MA in Philosophy from Ohio State University. He received his PhD in Philosophy from the University of Pennsylvania. He taught ancient philosophy for 35 years at the State University of New York at Buffalo, where he is now Emeritus Professor of Philosophy. He has published two books: Aristotle's Syllogistic (1969) and Sun, Moon, and Soth is: A Study of Calendars and Calendar Reforms in Ancient Egypt (1999). He is also the author of numerous articles on Greek philosophy. ancient calendars and archaeoastronomy. Summary A more careful reading of the Canopus Decree enables us to retrocalculate Sothic dates much more precisely than ever before. Middle Kingdom lunar documents fail to fit in the second millennium but they do fit in the 4th century, with the IIII prt 16 heliacal rising of ...
158. Saturn before the Sun [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2002:1 (Sep 2002) Home¦ Issue Contents Saturn before the Sun Dwardu Cardona Editor of journal Aeon Vancouver In which it shall be shown that the characteristics and motions of the so-called "suns" and sun-god of ancient man do not correspond to the motions and characteristics of the Sun. It shall also be shown that, in more than one case, the ancients themselves identified these so-called "suns" and sun gods as the planet Saturn and its divine personifications. It was only later that some of these Saturnian names were transferred to the Sun- and thus the title of my paper. In view of this, it becomes manifest that mythologists, who have long ignored these inconsistencies and identifications, as well as those who have pointed them out in the past, owe us an apology. It then becomes necessary to rewrite just about all of mythology. It will also become obvious that, with perhaps one or two exceptions, these characteristics and motions with which the ancients burdened their various "suns" and so-called ...
159. Scientists support Velikovsky [SIS C&C Review $]
... after the giant planets. (However, he also gave arguments for the view that the terrestrial planets could have been formed before the giant planets were formed). Theoretical work formed by Suvorev (4) led him to suggest that the planets were individually expelled from the sun. Hills (5) has recently suggested that the three outermost planets, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, were displaced into their present orbit by encounters with other planets: this conclusion is a consequence of his analysis of the solar nebula, which indicates that Saturn was initially the outermost planet to form in the nebula. Analysis by Schaeffer and Heymann (6) of meteoric material led them to conclude that at least two destructive collisions have occurred about 600 million years ago and another about 300 million years ago. Collisions of the type described should lead to angular momentum characteristics of the planets that will not necessarily be easily understood. Colombo (7) has observed that, although Mercury, the moon and several satellites of Jupiter and Saturn have odd angular momentums, the behaviours of Venus and ...
