... stakes out a solid, defendable, entirely new position in the debate about life origins and human origins. That position is bolstered by an astonishing array of scientific facts either unmentioned or conspicuously ignored by the two currently entrenched camps. By utilizing such a fact-based format, this book's presentation of Rationalism offers a far more convincing explanation for the origins of life, and particularly of human life, than Darwinism or Creationism ever have-- or ever will.

Roy: The Archaeo Astronomical Work of Alexander Thom. Measurement, cataloguing and interpretive work of Thom. [www.maths.gcal.ac.uk/natoconf/archie.html In ancient times, sacred knowledge of an astronomical and metaphysical nature was retained in the general consciousness of human society in the form of allegorical myth, and there existed a rigorous code of accuracy in repetition and transmission.

... . My thanks go to Emilio Spedicato for providing the talk summaries. Opening address to the participants Nieves Mathews De Madariaga Dear friends, dear friends of Immanuel Velikovsky, dear Emilio. explorer, on Velikovskian lines, of the frontiers of Paradise; dear Shulamit, translator of your father's work for the country of his choice. As an old friend of Velikovsky, who sent him tit-bits of confirmation throughout the last twenty-five years of his life- and queries which he answered to my complete satisfaction (on calendars, on Homer, on Stonehenge) I wish I could hear viva voce all you have to say about the changes in planetary orbits and in the earth's axis after near collisions; about the geological and dendrological evidence of recent catastrophes of extraterrestrial origin; about the electromagnetic forces which play so vital a role in Velikovsky's cosmological scenario, and about the fascinating interplay between the rejection and the recognition of scientific genius. Above all I wish I could hear your arguments and counter-arguments, agreements and disagreements. I shall be with you in spirit, and so will my ...
109. Update on Nabta Stone Circle [SIS Internet Digest $]
... lead by Fred Wendorf, Ph.D., Anthropology Professor at Southern Methodist University, reported in the science journal, Nature, about the oldest known astronomical stone circle on earth. The stone circle is associated with a series of flat, carved stone structures, six lines of standing and toppled megaliths and two buried megalithic sculptures in southern Egypt's Nabta Playa 100 kilometers (62 miles) west of Abu Simbel. Radiocarbon dating indicated the structures were in 4,500 B. C. sedimentary layers, at least a thousand years older than Stonehenge in England. Nabta Playa is rich in prehistoric remains of the early Holocene age when there was rain and a lake, but no skeletal human remains have ever been found. Nabta circle schematic© Thomas G. Brophy Professor Wendorf and his astronomer colleague, Professor J. McKim Malville, reported that. "Five megalithic alignments at Nabta radiate outward from a central collection of megalithic structures. Beneath one structure was a sculptured rock" several feet down in the sand. Their speculation was that the Nabta site was used for astronomical ...
110. Some Additional Comments On Tektites [Kronos $]
... , are questions that might be answered in detail by further investigation. Numerous other peculiarities of tektites are suggestive of origins involving electricity. As just one example, I would point out that some tektites are quite massive, yet they clearly melted almost instantaneously throughout their volumes. They were not heated from the outside. It is claimed that mechanical shock, as from impact, might account for this. But it is known that electrical breakdown could produce such an effect. I would add only that, about 1960, Hawkins (of Stonehenge fame) produced respectable artificial tektites by subjecting Earth materials to a beam of electrons. He, too, may have been closer to the truth of things than he realized. [* !* Image The Moon \cdrom\pubs\journals\kronos\vol0201\045tekt2.htm ...
