91. Krupp And Velikovsky [Journals] [Kronos]
... one he selected has as much connection with lunar observations as the White House or the Kremlin.(33) To conclude this section on the demise of Thom's megalithic astronomy I quote a most considered opinion, that of Professor Glyn Daniel, on the most "recent state of the art" concerning megalithic science: "The astronomical purpose of Stonehenge and other stone rings was not seriously argued until after World War II, when Gerald S. Hawkins of Boston University proposed in his book Stonehenge Decoded (1966) that the monument was a giant calculator for the prediction of eclipses, both lunar and solar. Five years later Thom, in his book Megalithic Lunar Observatories, postulated that ...
... mound itself. Perhaps neither have an antiquity beyond a hundred years; for it is certain that the existing tribes of Indians often buried in the ancient tumuli, and occasionally erected mounds. The interesting fact of stratification finds some singular though not complete parallels in the, tumuli of Great Britain and Western Asia. The barrows in the vicinity of Stonehenge and Abury, in the county of Wiltshire, England, are sometimes stratified with alternate layers of various colored earth, stone drippings, and ashes or other carbonaceous material. The excavation of one of these barrows is described by Stukeley ` We made a large cut on the top from east to west, and after the turf was taken ...

... is an article on Pterosaurs, the bird-like and feathered saurians. Pteranodan is mentioned as having a throat sac rather like that of a Pelican: fossil remains of fish have been found in the fossilised impression of Pterodan's throat sac. Jill Abery comments: "they didn't even have time to die of indigestion!" "STONES, PITS AND STONEHENGE"- NATURE 5/3 /81, p.46-7 This is an account by M. W. Pitts of an excavation in 1979 at Stonehenge when a prehistoric pit was discovered next to the Heelstone (stone no.96). The pit had been dug to take a standing stone: this is now numbered 97 although ...

... have the tools we have nowadays, but he had our intelligence and could do lots of things and have thoughts which were not always very far from those we have nowadays." Rene Gallant's intention, obviously enough, is to demonstrate the above by continuing with references to the achievements of early prehistoric man such as the construction of megaliths like Stonehenge even at a time when there was no writing'. Since the construction of Stonehenge needs the intervention of higher mathematics' it follows that prehistoric man must have been intelligent. Notwithstanding the fact that Rene Gallant has somehow managed to bracket the so-called intelligence of Neolithic man with that of the so-called early historic megalith builders, it may be ...

... present an alternative which could stand against either of the world-views he lambasts. He endorses Velikovskian catastrophism, but his accounts of various Biblical events, generally explained by him through electrical phenomena, are not sufficient to provide a comprehensive alternative in the evolution v. Creationism debate. David Fairbairn 1988 A Guide to Velikovsky's Sources by Bob Forrest published by Stonehenge Viewpoint, 1987 There cannot be many SIS members who have not heard of Bob Forrest by now. His Velikovsky's Sources is a privately published seven volume critique of Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision; a series of articles of his have appeared in the periodical Stonehenge Viewpoint. References to Forrest's work have probably led many to believe that Forrest is a ...
97. The Knossos Labyrinth - a new view of the 'Palace of Minos' at Knossos [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Home | Issue Contents REVIEWS The Knossos Labyrinth - a new view of the Palace of Minos' at Knossos by Rodney Castleden (Routledge, London & New York, 1990) From the title one might be forgiven for dismissing this as yet one more book in a line of iconoclastic pet theories appearing almost perennially on subjects such as Atlantis, Stonehenge, and, in this case, Minoan Crete. This, however, would be a sorry mistake. Rodney Castleden is no raver from the loony fringe, but a serious and careful researcher. His book is a mine of up-to-date information yet makes easy and interesting reading. His assumptions are few, and many of his conclusions are ...
98. The Riddle of the Earth [Books]
... , in regard to the real significance of the linga-lingam principle, is not on a sufficiently high plane to realise its significance. Those who knew and understood the science of these questions were the ancient Aryans, whose pillar-stones, sacred rocks which no chisel might profane, were anointed with oil, and whose altars and temples, like Avebury and Stonehenge, erected for astronomical purposes, were built of such meteoric stones. They knew, they understood, not because they were primordial, but because they had delved farther into the scheme of the Infinite than some of our scientists of the present day. They worshipped Nature in the manner science must discover that Nature manifests itself, the meteor ...
99. Earth Magic: A Review by FRANCIS HITCHING [Journals] [Kronos]
... Anthropology and Linguistics Drew University, Madison, N. J. Arthur Clarke once remarked that "every uncomprehended technology is, in principle, magic." The magic that Francis Hitching treats in this lucidly written and engrossing book is the vanished technology which he believes to have been made possible by the far-flung pre-Christian network of rough-hewn megaliths. Although Stonehenge in southern England is the best known of these megalithic complexes, Hitching does not confine himself to it, nor even to the British Isles or Europe, as a majority of prehistorians have done. Instead, he here gives us the most nearly global survey of megalithism that has appeared since the publication, in 1872, of James Fergusson's ...
100. Celestial Rings [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:3 (Dec 1998) Home | Issue Contents Forum Celestial Rings Roger W. Wescott, from Southbury, Connecticut, writes: AEON deserves an accolade for having published Henry Zemel's paper on celestial rings [1 ] as the lead article in the last issue. Ever since the journal Stonehenge Viewpoint introduced me to the work of the late Isaac Vail, I have thought it likely that most solar planets, including our own, either have, or have had, ring systems. Vail's pioneering work has been undeservedly neglected by most catastrophists, with the notable exception of Milton Zysman whose "mirror dome" concept presupposes a vanished terrestrial ring. [2 ...
