... the ancient world than they are today. This in turn increases the probability that a large fireball (perhaps repeated fireballs) generated at least some of the Exodus-Conquest phenomena. Notes 1. Reade's most recent paper (1993) suggests that the Phaeton incident could be dated to the 15th century BC after all. But his argument also requires that Stonehenge and other megalithic observatories be redated to the 9th-8th centuries BC. Some of these observatories are dated by C14 to the centuries around 2000 BC. While absolute dates supplied by C14 may be questionable, the method does at least help us to arrive at relative datings and approximate synchronisms. Reade's latest proposal therefore creates a major dilemma: do ...

272. The Secret of Baalbek (Concluded) [Journals] [Kronos]
... . The question arises whether they are not the survivals of the original cyclopean structure- that which carried the name Rehob, or Beth-Rehob, and which served as a landmark for the scouts dispatched by Moses in their survey of Canaan, and for the emissaries of the tribe of Dan in their search for the territory in the north. Like Stonehenge in Great Britain, or Tiahuanaco in the Andes, it may have originated in an early time- not necessarily neolithic, since it appears that these stones are subjected to hewing by metal tools. * Editors Note: The three massive slabs imbedded in the Baalbek wall received their combined name of trilithon from historians of Byzantine times, but ...

... believed in their adolescence. Hence, Norman Lockyer's researches were never taken seriously and were often satirised. In the 17th and 18th centuries the situation differed remarkably. Antiquarians, in that age, came principally from the upper classes who considered that, perhaps, an upper class had existed in the remote past which had included the builders of Stonehenge, Avebury and various other monuments. Vere Gordon Childe, the influential 20th century Marxist archaeologist, was quite unable to grasp the idea that people who lived four or five thousand years ago were not very different to people alive today. He jeered at the idea that our backward ancestors could have spent time studying the stars. Phillip Clapham ...

... key subspecies introductions or cultural boundary horizons seems to correspond with an important magnetic reversal or excursion. The Gothenburg event appears to mark the end of the Neanderthals. ' * [see note 1, page 112] Data on the alignments and astronomical significance of stone circles is rather sparse and still somewhat controversial, but Burl (1976) describing Stonehenge, notes a slight change of axis at one point perhaps because the midsummer rising of the Sun had changed a little over the centuries. More important, as in some other later stone circles, there seems to be a greater interest in the midwinter sunset. ' This reversal in direction of interest from the sunrise to the sunset' ...

... understand how a frenzied response might arise in the form of religious temples to propitiate the violent gods and astronomical observatories to anticipate future returns, though we have until now always assumed it was mere calendric or navigational requirements that arbitrarily inspired the growth of astronomy at these times, and mere technology that inspired a new generation to produce the pyramids and Stonehenge. With the passage of time, of course, the encounters would weaken and there would be only fireballs and declining comets to remind one of the former events. But at some stage there might at any time be a further fragmentation and a revival of earlier terror. The scribe would scan the ancient records and attempt to prophesy the ...

... go to the end of the world". When we have learned that the "end of heaven" was the cosmic center, and the place of the cosmic "circle", we have some light to illumine the fact that in all terrestrial augural, or oracular centers, a sacred circle was made an essential property, as at Stonehenge. The races faithfully copied from the original pattern. The ancient custom of applying to these oracular centers for knowledge is interestingly illustrated in the habits of the ancients. We learn how the early superstitions are unconsciously reflected in the old Chronicles where it is related the King Saul, having failed to reach the ear of Jehovah, sought the ...

... following passage deserves disinterment and separate preservation " When these ancient patriarchal temples came to be perverted to idolatry, they consecrated many of them to the Sun, thinking their round form ought to be referred to his disc ; and that these pyramidal stones set in a circle imitated his rays. And had the ancient Greek writers seen our temples of Stonehenge and the rest they would have concluded them dedicated to the Sun, " These temples of ours are always of a round form, yet there are three manifest diversities which I have observed, regarding that threefold figure by which the ancients expressed in writing the great idea of the deity. This figure by Kircher is called ophio-cyclopterygo-morphus. Tis ...

The Untuning of the World, the dissolution of the Cosmos, was to come only with Descartes. It was said earlier concerning the Mayan astronomers that the connections were what counted.
