61. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... . How very kind of you, a total stranger, to be concerned enough to take the time and trouble to write to my daughter and me! We do deeply appreciate your thoughtfulness. I would not burden you with a long account of our story. But my husband was a minister of the gospel for thirty-two years before this horrible tragedy came into our lives when someone with a grudge perhaps, or maybe just from jealousy, went to the extent of ? suggesting ? that perhaps our daughter had not died a natural death seven years before. The deliberate deception we were put through by the prosecution, the mental torment, our ignorance of our rights and of the true facts, the threats to my well-being which finally resulted in a false confession by my husband, and his subsequent sentence to life imprisonment this is all a terrible nightmare. Had it not been for our faith in a loving God who somehow works out all things for the good of those who love Him, I am sure we would both have lost our sanity. But for 14 ...
62. Binomial Coefficients, Permutations and Combinations in Elam and Babylon [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... 6) As early as the end of the fourth millennium B.C. proto-Sumerian and proto-Elamite scribes had well developed systems of numbers and measures. They included precursors of our own decimal system. In a cuneiform tablet from Larsa, described in 1855 by Sir Henry Rawlinson, Old Babylonian cuneiform script depicts what may accurately be seen as sexagesimal factoring of squared numbers. (7) Present-day Iraq and Iran are regions of southwest Asia where early forms of writing arose before 3000 B.C., primarily for the purpose of recording numbers and commodities. Seven sites in Iraq have yielded numerous cuneiform tablets and five sites in Iran, Susa (Shushan) in particular, are the sources of a linguistically unrelated script, proto-Elamite, that is about as old as proto-Sumerian. Both scripts relied essentially on identical special notations to represent numbers and measures so that tablets bearing numerical records and accounts are decipherable. (8) Hebrew writers of the Middle Ages were interested in the matter of permutations. This was largely due to the connection between this subject and astrology. Since the planets were supposed ...

64. Sicily, Carthage, and the Fall of Troy [Kronos $]
... It began as early as the Orientalizing period of the eighth and early seventh centuries with the rivalry of Greek and Phoenician settlers in the West, and culminated with Alexander's capture of Tyre in the fourth century, Rome's defeat of Carthage after the exhausting Punic wars of the third, and Carthage's destruction in the second. Carthage had been the focus of a Phoenician presence in the West for many hundreds of years, before it was leveled to the ground by the Romans in 146 B.C. The Roman historian Appian gave a round figure of seven centuries for Carthage's existence, which would imply a date for its founding about the middle of the ninth century. Timaeus, the Greek chronographer, gave the year 814 B.C. as the date of Carthage's founding(1) by Dido or Elissa, who had fled with a group of followers from the hands of her murderous brother Pygmalion, king of Tyre. Josephus(2) dated Dido's flight 155 years after the accession of Hiram, the ally of David and Solomon, that is, in 826 B.C. Another tradition ...
65. Observations of Venus by James I [Horus $]
... an angular distance from the Sun of 90 or more. Yet over the past centuries, Venus' orbit may have deviated from the orbital values we now observe. Let us look at some material that hints of such variations. The "King's Quair" (King's Poem) is a poem that King James I of Scotland may have composed in 1424 while a prisoner in the Tower of London. The gist of the poem James' Venus-induced reverie- will not concern us here. Rather, we shall concentrate on the poem's first seven lines, the prologue to James' reverie: "Heigh in the hevynnis figure circulere The rody sterres twynklyng as the fyre; And in Aquary, Citherea the clere, Rynsid hir tressis like the goldin wyre, That late to fore in fair and fresch atyre Through Capricorn heved hir hornis bright North northward approchit the mydnyght." The first six lines tell us that Venus (Citherea the clere) had passed from the constellation Capricorn into Aquarius. A student of the poem, John Norton-Smith, in order to date its composition ...
66. What Was "Brimstone"? [Kronos $]
... burn while floating on water. With a specific gravity of 2.07, sulfur is simply not credible as a substance which will burn on water. But if not sulfur, what could the Biblical "brimstone" have stood for? We begin our search for the solution to this mystery with an examination of one of the visions of John of Patmos wherein is revealed where the fiery substance came from: "When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. "Then I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them. And another angel came and stood at the altar with a golden censer; and he was given much incense to mingle with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar before the throne; "And the smoke of the incense rose with the prayers of the saints from the hand of the angel before God. "Then the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it on the earth; and there were ...
67. What Do Blind People Dream? [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 133: JAN-FEB 2001 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects What Do Blind People Dream? Those who are born blind or become blind before the age of five do not see in their dreams. Nevertheless, their dreams are just as rich in narrative and detail as in sighted people. If one's sight is lost after the age of seven, dreams will still brim with visual imagery. A grey area exists between five and seven years. Interestingly, those rapid eye movements (REMs) signifying that a dream is in progress do not occur, or occur very weakly, for those born blind or blinded before five. How about congenitally deaf people? It appears that they may dream in sign language! Their dreams are also more colorful than those of people with normal hearing.

68. Victor Clube: Scientific Revelations - the Origins of Catastrophe Myths and Legends [SIS Internet Digest $]
... dust particles which accumulate in the atmosphere and then fall on to the ice following clusters of impact events of the type experienced in Tunguska, Siberia, during 1908. Once a knowledge of this cycle is understood we can see that it corresponds very well with major changes in history including the fall of Sumeria around 2200 BC. I was most fascinated by the manner in which Victor linked this cycle with the calendrical system presented in the Dead Sea Scrolls found in 1947. It revolves around a 364-day year broken up into 52 weeks of seven days, with a leap week every seven years. Victor pointed out that the accuracy of this calendar was remarkable, showing that their knowledge of the solar year was exactly the same as ours. More curiously, the writers of the scrolls claimed that knowledge of their calendrical system had been passed down through countless generations and came originally from Enoch. The question is- from whom did he obtain it? ...
69. Archeometeorology [Science Frontiers Website]
... indicated in the figure. Some of the lesser stars seem to disappear altogether. The visibility effect itself is rather subtle. It is remarkable enough that it was noticed at all by ancient peoples, much more so was their making the obscure connection to future weather. (Orlove, Benjamin S., et al; "Forecasting Andean Rainfall and Crop Yield from the Influence of El Nino on Pleiades Visibility," Nature, 403:68, 2000.) Comment. To the ancients, the Pleiades were known as the "seven sisters," be-cause their eyes registered seven resplendent stars. But today a naked-eye observer counts just six. What happened to the "Lost Pleiad?" Apparently it faded away in historical times. Details in AOF28 in Stars, Galaxies, Cosmos. From Science Frontiers #128, MAR-APR 2000.© 1997 William R.

70. Prime Number [Science Frontiers Website]
... 875, 780, 378, 922, 957, 732, 908, 036, 492, 993, 138, 195, 385, 213, 105, 561, 742, 150, 447, 308, 967, 213, 141, 717, 486, 151 This 97-digit number is a prime, divisible by only 1 and itself. But, add 210 to it, and you get still another prime. Add another 210, and another prime pops up! You can do this six times and gets a series of seven consecutive primes in an arithmetic progression. Neat! And just a tiny bit of order in the distribution of primes. It took H. Dubner and H.L. Nelson about two weeks with seven computers running continuously to come up with this discovery. It seems relevant to mention that these gentlemen are semiretired and retired, respectively. (Peterson, I.; "Progressing to a set of Consecutive Primes," Science News, 148: 167, 1995) Comment. There are other traces of order in the distribution of primes ...
