42. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Jerusalem, March 29, 1976 Dear Dr. Velikovsky, I was very pleased to get your acknowledgment of my contribution to the Festschrift as well as your invitation to write to you. Accepting the later may I ask you the Gretchenfrage? In your section about Stonehenge which first appeared in a ? Rejoinder to Burgstahler and Angino ? (1967) and was reprinted in Pensée of May 1972, mention is made of the ? Slaughter Stone ? (Altar Stone) and its shifting location during the ages, so as to be met by the first ray of the rising sun. In this connex your statement ? the shining forth of the first ray of the sun was the moment ? demands an amplification! My question is: Is it not obvious that the scrupulosity of the observance was not meant for astronomical calculation alone, but also to fix the exact moment for ritual slaughtering? Worlds in Collision quotes from unpublished notes of G. A. Dorsey: ? There seem to have been astronomical beliefs connected with the sacrifices ? (p.?92) ...

An assembly of huge stone slabs found in Egypt's Sahara Desert that date from about 6,500 years to 6,000 years ago has been confirmed by scientists to be the oldest known astronomical alignment of megaliths in the world. Nabta stone circle site in Egypt Known as Nabta, the site consists of a stone circle, a series of flat, tomb-like stone structures and five lines of standing and toppled megaliths. Located west of the Nile River in southern Egypt, Nabta predates Stonehenge and similar prehistoric sites ...

... schema, with the help of the following maps. The first map (below) is a Mercator projection. The second map (below the first map) is built according to the principle of a stereographic projection centered on the point X (intersection of the meridian of Alexandria and of the tropic of Cancer). From this point, I have traced the circumferences the radiuses of which equal 36, 72 (2x36), 108 (3x36) and 144 (4x36) degrees. We notice that: The megalithic sites of Stonehenge (Great Britain) and of Carnac (France) are situated on the first circle. The ancient Chinese observatory of Gaocheng (area of Luoyang) and the site of Angkor Vat (Cambodia) are situated on the second circle. The remarkable solar observatory of Chaco Canyon (USA, New-Mexico), the Maya cities of Uxmal (Mexico), of Tikal (Guatemala) and of Copan (Honduras) and, finally, the Peruvian sites of Nazca and of Machu Picchu are found on the third circle.

46. THE BURNING OF TROY: PART ONE: HISTORICAL DISTURBANCES: CHAPTER EIGHT: THE OBLITERATION OF HUMAN SIGNS [Quantavolution Website]
... , "cosmic" mega-forces interacting as such and with a given biosphere, atmosphere and lithosphere. High-energy forces and chemical outbursts reach toward the extermination of evidence of a biosphere. Low-energy uniform and gradual forces also tend to exterminate such evidence. The truth of the past thus remains for us in the evidence of niches where high-energy forces acted but were not totally destructive-- mountains that were not leveled, elevations by-passed by cross-tides, humans buried swiftly in a clay that quickly hardened, and so on. If at the time of Stonehenge about 3500 years ago there were a million people in Britain (for they were building other sites as well and carrying on the chores of living), and if we find no sign of them, either we have not searched very well, or there was some catastrophe that erased all signs. The very existence of the megaliths does, however, discount the notion of complete disaster-- there were no Washington Scablands barrier-bursting floods, or giant oceanic tsunamis or Biblical overturning of mountains. And of there were a few utensils ...

48. The Reality of Extinctions [Aeon Journal $]
... from about 2500 to 1500 years B. C. This could be loosely termed the megalithic millennium, for it was during this time that the huge monuments of standing stones were set up in north-west Europe. There were several episodes of megalithic activity and, in the resulting patterns of standing stones, we have a record-- possibly the only record-- of a mechanism which will be proposed below as a cause of extinctions. Let us take this one step at a time. The most famous of all megalithic monuments is Stonehenge. But it is not a solitary example; hundreds of stone rings are extant in Britain alone. In addition, there are rows of huge standing stones in Brittany, just as impressive as Stonehenge. The Grand menhir, now broken, was originally 320 tonnes, probably the largest stone ever moved by manpower. Occasionally, a megalithic society had to work without stones and chose to make long broad excavations on the chalk downs in England and Belgium, given the name "cursus." When new, these excavations, which ...
49. Evidence From the Moon, Newgrange and Stonehenge Indicates Lunar Disturbance [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 2000:1 "Proceedings of the SIS Silver Jubilee Event" Home¦ Issue Contents Evidence From the Moon, Newgrange and Stonehenge Indicates Lunar Disturbance by Leonard Saunders Leonard Saunders is a retired general management consultant and 'company doctor'. Throughout his career he has been concerned with multi-disciplinary problem-solving in both physical and intangible respects. He has carried over this skill into extended private research centred upon Stonehenge and its environs. Summary Four features of the moon, the carvings at the Newgrange passage grave, cup and ring marks elsewhere and the Station Stones at Stonehenge have defied detailed explanation. Prompted by the Newgrange carvings a model is presented which accounts for all these conundrums: in historic times the plane of the moon's orbit slowly turned 180-deg about the earth. The sequence of events is identified. Introduction The extended work of Prof. George Eogan (Univ. of Dublin) in the passage grave at Knowth in the Boyne Valley, Ireland, is approaching its culmination. Dr Philip Stooke (Univ. of Western Ontario) has discovered ...

... , moon, and stars and the year god, Tai-sui. The sun and stars take the east, and the moon and Tai-sui the west: the stars are the twenty-eight constellations of the Chinese zodiac, borrowed by the Hindoos soon after the Christian era, and called by them the Naksha-tras, the Tai-sui is' a deification of the sixty-year cycle." [4 We find, then, that the most important temple in China is oriented to the winter solstice. To mention another instance. It has long been known that Stonehenge is oriented to the rising of the sun at the summer solstice. Its amplitude instead of being 26 is 40 N. of E.; with a latitude of 51, the 26 azimuth of Thebes is represented by an amplitude of 40 at Stonehenge. The structure consists of a double circle of stones, with a sort of naos composed of large stones facing a so-called avenue, which is a sunken way between two parallel banks. This avenue stretches away from the naos in the direction of the solstitial sunrise. But this ...
