41. Atlantic Wave Heights Increasing [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 113: Sep-Oct 1997 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Atlantic Wave Heights Increasing We have touched on this subject before. (SF#84/279) We now have more precise data. Wave-height measurements at the Seven Stone Light Vessel, anchored in the northeastern Atlantic, show that wave heights have increased 2.4 centimeters/year during the period 1960-1985. This is not a trivial amount. At this rate, waves a century from now would be 2.4 meters (about 8 feet) higher. Many existing coastal structures will be smashed to bits. All this is over and above any effects from rising sea levels. The records from the Seven Stone Light Vessel are corroborated by an analysis of more then 20,000 wave charts of the North Atlantic drawn between 1960 and 1988. It therefore seems clear that something unusual is going on in the North Atlantic. One would suspect increased winds, but velocities measured at Seven Stone have remained constant while wave heights rose. It ...
42. Saturn's Flare-ups [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... and Brendan O'Gheoghan,(14) and proper credit should have been duly given. Even so, it is somewhat peremptory to state, as Eggleton did, that "According to the Bible, Saturn definitely exploded twice" (emphasis mine). For one thing, Saturn, as such, is not even mentioned in the Bible. For another, it is difficult to see how the Bible can be made to assert anything on the strength of missing words. Velikovsky's treatment of these missing words, concerning the light of the seven days,(15) may be a brilliant deduction but it cannot yet be ruled out that these seven days of light were not confused and/or connected with the light of the seven "days" of Creation. Luckily for Eggleton, there is corroborating evidence which implies that Saturn was disrupted more than once but, unless I have misread the texts, the records indicate at least three disruptions and not just two.(16) I mention this here because if ancient man remembers three Saturnian catastrophes, there is a ...
43. Astral Kingship [Aeon Journal $]
... . (60) The relative unimportance of Helios as the Sun in the Greek pantheon is revealed by the interesting story which tells that "when the gods had divided the world, Helios was absent and was forgotten. He complained about this to Zeus and obtained an island which was just beginning to emerge from the waves. He called it Rhodes after the nymph Rhode, whom he loved." (61) The Colossus of Rhodes, the renowned work of the sculptor Chares, was a statue of Helios and one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. (62) Helios was also associated with his son Phaethon who unsuccessfully attempted to drive the flaming chariot of his father until Zeus slew the youth with a thunderbolt, thereby saving the Earth and mankind from further conflagration and ruin. In another variation of the story, Phaethon ultimately became the Morning-Evening Star-- Venus. (63) The various traditions of the world tell of several different ages which came to a violent end. (64) In the rabbinical conception of ages, seven heavens ...
44. Heracles and the Planet Mars [Aeon Journal $]
... this symbolism: "In Mesopotamian beliefs a Central mountain joins heaven and earth; it is the 'Mount of the Lands,' which connects the territories. But the very names of the Babylonian temples and sacred towers bear witness to their assimilation to the Cosmic Mountain: 'Mount of the House', 'Mount of the Mountains of all Lands,' 'Mount of Storms,' 'Link between Heaven and Earth,' and the like. The ziggurat was, properly speaking, a Cosmic Mountain, a symbolic image of the Cosmos; its seven stories represented the seven planetary heavens." (44) Given that Huwawa resides upon the top of the Cedar Mountain-- the dwelling-place of the gods and the throne of Ishtar-- it would seem to follow that he too was some type of god. Indeed, with very few exceptions, Huwawa is generally identified as a god in the texts. (45) Which god then should Huwawa be identified with? Shamash A wealth of evidence suggests that Huwawa was Shamash in monstrous guise. Elsewhere in the Gilgamesh Epic ...
45. On Saturn And The Flood [Kronos $]
... was Horus-Jupiter assuming royal power, leaving Osiris to reign over the kingdom of the dead. My conclusion that, as a result of its interplay with Jupiter, Saturn became a nova,(7) I found confirmed in many ancient sources, in which Saturn is regularly associated with brilliant light; but I was led to this idea first of all by a certain clue contained in the Biblical account of the Deluge. The story as found in the book of Genesis starts with these words: "And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the Flood were upon the earth."(8) It is not explained, after seven days of what? Some words seem to be missing here from our text of the Old Testament. It is clear, however, that Isaiah refers to the same seven days in his description of the messianic age to come, when "the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of the seven ...
46. The Rites Of Moloch [Kronos $]
... ordinarily used for 'hell' is Gehinnom, although this is at the same time the name of one of the parts of hell... The Rabbis, of course, knew that Gehinnom originally was the name of the valley near Jerusalem where Moloch had been worshipped in ancient times, and they therefore explained the meaning of this word, as well as its synonym Tofet [the same as Tophet, from its connection with the worship of Moloch."(25) Moloch's Tophet is described in the Midrashim as having consisted of seven compartments.(26) Of this, too, we take special note. VII Immanuel Velikovsky was quite correct when he stated that "The Jewish people did not obtain all of its 'supremacy' in that one day at the Mountain of Lawgiving; this people did not receive the message of monotheism as a gift. It struggled for it.. ." (27) He was not quite correct, however, in his belief that a pure Jewish monotheism emerged in the time of Josiah,(28) for although ...
47. Saturn: In Myth and Religion [Kronos $]
... can determine, the Saturnian deity seems to have been fixed in his place from as far back as humankind can remember. 6. The Ringed Cross At some point in its celestial career, Saturn ensconced itself within a system of rings. These were not the rings which presently encircle the planet. If I read the myths correctly, there was first one ring which later split into three and finally evolved into a sevenfold structure. In his major work, Talbott described only one Saturnian ring or band. He did refer to the seven rings surrounding Saturn in his earlier synopsis but, according to him, these were formed after Saturn's "fall", at the end of the Golden Age.(33) I disagree with Talbott on this point, having come across numerous references which seem to indicate that the seven rings were unfolded in prismatic glory during the greater part of the Golden Age. Because of Earth's rotation, the sunlit portion of these rings were seen to revolve daily around the Saturnian orb. Saturn's own light would actually have illuminated the entire ring ...

... they wear) and among those who do so Midir and Etaín, the "grandparents" of Conaire, are notable. The birds who turn on him in the sea and who are commanded by Nemglan would certainly seem to be large swans. Conaire went on to Tara where he was accepted as king of Ireland, and under his rule a golden age began, with foreign trade, abundance of food for animals and men, gentle weather, and social harmony:...there were in Conaire's reign great bounties, to wit, seven ships in every June of every year arriving at Inver Colptha, and oak-mast [nuts, i.e. acorns up to the knees in every autumn, and plenty of fish in the rivers Bush and Boyne in June of each year, and such abundance of good-will that no one slew another in Erin during his reign. And to every one in Erin his fellow's voice seemed as sweet as the strings of lutes. From mid-spring to mid-autumn no wind disturbed a cow's tail. His reign was neither thunderous nor stormy. Even the ...

... is presumed. It can be demonstrated that the period was beyond 28 years. B. Samson is not counted separately because he was judge during the last 20 years of the Philistine servitude. C. Eli's first year as judge is presumed to be in the same year as the last of the Philistine servitude. The actual years read 38 instead of 39 because his last year is included as the first year of the following 20 years. D. Upon the death of Eli the Ark of the Covenant was removed to Philistia for seven months and, when returned, remained in Kiriath-jearim for 20 years. The end of the 20 years was in the year Saul became king. E. Many Bible versions incorrectly fill in the missing regnal formula for Saul. The existing Massoretic Text is damaged and reads, "Saul was a son of... years when he began to reign, and he reigned... and two years over Israel (1 Samuel 13:1). By a process of elimination plus other Scriptures it can be established that ...
50. The Archangels [Kronos $]
... readers that Gabriel had already been identified with the planet Mars, he did not follow this lead. That he did not was due to his having favored Venus as the agent of destruction concerning which, he informed us, there seems to be "adequate evidence".(10) Let us, temporarily, leave Venus aside. What can be said of Gabriel as the planet Mars? According to Joshua Trachtenberg: "An old tradition, dating back at least to Geonic [or Gaonic times, had it that there are seven archangels, each of whom is associated with a planet "( 11) "The seven archangels, in particular, were believed to play an important part in the universal order through their association with the planets and the constellations."(12) The same author also wrote that there are different versions as to which archangel was associated with which planet. The archangel Gabriel, with whom we are first concerned, was sometimes associated with the Moon, and sometimes with the planet Mars.(13) Origen made Gabriel, ...
