51. "Stonehenge Viewpoint?" Biased View (Forum) [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. XI No. 3 (Summer 1986) Home¦ Issue Contents Forum "Stonehenge Viewpoint?" Biased View Dwardu Cardona Reports: In May of 1984, KRONOS received a manuscript from Bob Forrest titled "Reply to Dwardu Cardona's Piece in KRONOS IX:2". Partly because of its length (10 pages of single-spaced type, approximately 8400 words), but mostly because of its rambling contents, KRONOS did not see fit to publish it. As Senior Editor of KRONOS, I wrote to Forrest on May 14 of the same year to let him know of our decision. Part of my letter read: "[ Your manuscript consists of a lot of verbiage which is wasted on a point about which we both agree. Enough is enough... "To my knowledge, Professor Greenberg has no intention of publishing your 'Reply' It is, if nothing else, far too long and rambling." Understanding our "reluctance to publish [his reply in full", Forrest himself then asked if we would be willing ...

... to Evenor's mountain, the central feature of Plato's original lost Atlantis. The forger made a double killing there! Then look at the map of Scandanavia as a whole, imagining it to be separated from Russia by the sea, as it once was. The size and topography fit Plato's description to a T! The iron-rich Gulf of Bothnia is like a gigantic hole punched in it. A triple killing? Aldland of course goes via Adland to Atlant. The -is ending would be added for linguistic correctness Simple! Then there is Stonehenge. There is a peculiar mystifying feature at Stonehenge that no one has ever been able to make head or tail of, apart, I would like to think, from the author of the OERA LINDA BOOK. Never mind that he doesn't once mention Stonehenge; it is another good example of his concealed brilliance. It is the name Friar's Heel which is associated with the Heelstone. I quote from J. E. Wood (SUN, MOON AND STANDING STONES): "It is fairly certain that the Heel Stone was ...

... synodic period of Mars is close to 780 days, one third of which gives 260 days (259.98 to be more exact). The eclipse year is 346.62003 days, and of this period is again 260 days (259.97). Could this be a period, then, relating the apparent motions of the Moon and Mars in an integral number of days? Well... maybe. But it is all too easy to see impressive coincidences where they do not exist. One such example may be found in Fred Hoyle's On Stonehenge, where he touts (after Gerald S. Hawkins) the dubious theory that the sophisticated Stonehenge III monument (the concentric circles and 'horse-shoes' of carefully dressed stone) is a late, degenerate structure. The astronomically more sophisticated device, he claims, comprises a rectangle of four unworked rocks, a massive equally crude outlier, and a huge ring of 56 funerary pits. It is instructive to examine how 'commensurability mania' pervades his argument. Firstly, Hawkins (in Stonehenge Decoded) had suggested that the Aubrey Circle ( ...

... a powerful symbol in the human mass subconscious, it has usually been approached either on the basis of religious faith or of a scientific analysis and denial. In this concise yet significant volume mankind's memories and prophecies of paradise are offered at face value as the most urgent and persistent message of our remote ancestors. Memories and Visions of Paradise is at once a restatement of mankind's earliest utterances, and a revelation of the most powerful collective subconscious drives at work in our modern world.

58. Second SIS Cambridge Conference Report [SIS Internet Digest $]
... of the Society for Interdisciplinary Studies. The purpose- to discuss the near-simultaneous ending of Bronze Age civilizations world-wide, in particular whether the "giant comet" hypothesis, associated principally with the names of Clube& Napier and Hoyle& Wickramasinghe, could be substantiated by ground truth in the archaeological, geological, climatological and historical records. Depending on one's chronology and the geographic region under discussion, the Bronze Age started c.3500 BC and continued for two or three thousand years until approximately 1500-500 BC, encompassing not only the main construction phases of Stonehenge and its megalithic counterparts elsewhere, but also the genesis of kingship, priesthood, human and animal sacrifice, the evolution of religious views from polytheism to monotheism and significantly to astronomers a burgeoning interest in the celestial sphere. The heart of the astronomical thesis is that changes in the Earth's near-space astronomical environment, corresponding to the orbital evolution and hierarchical fragmentation of a giant comet- possibly the progenitor of Encke's comet, have produced surges in the rate of accretion of interplanetary dust and associated episodes of bombardment of larger bodies (diameters 10-100m ...
59. Newly Discovered Woodhenge Rivals Stonehenge [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1997:2 (Feb 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents Newly Discovered Woodhenge Rivals Stonehenge Fri, 14 Nov 1997 11:24:11 -0500 (EST) From: The Times, 11 November 1997 Archaeologists have discovered traces of a huge and elaborate wooden temple dating back 5,000 years. Nine concentric rings of oak pillars once stood on the site at Stanton Drew in Somerset, surrounded by an enormous ditch. All that can be seen today is a later stone circle. Such wooden henges are unique to Britain. Sir Jocelyn Stevens, chairman of English Heritage, said that Britain was apparently the only place in the ancient world here these extraordinary temples were built. ...
60. Notes on this issue: Pensee IVR X [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 4 No 5: (Winter 1974-75) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered X" Home¦ Issue Contents Notes on this Issue Stonehenge, Woodhenge, and the other megalithic monuments located throughout Britain and elsewhere have spawned more theorizing through the centuries than almost any other relics of the human past (excepting, of course, the pyramids and the Sphinx). In recent years these monuments have been proclaimed observatories; and the astronomical sophistication assigned to their builders borders on the fantastic. Dr. Euan MacKie (p. 5) examines these claims and finds them correct, at least in part; his own fieldwork has provided one of the most impressive pieces of evidence supporting the astronomical interpretation-all of which renders the megalithic monuments crucial for testing both uniformitarian and catastrophic theories. In "Megalithic Astronomy and Catastrophism," MacKie assesses the evidences with admirable lucidity. As a bonus, he grants us a preview of his forthcoming book on Stonehenge. Velikovsky (p. 21) comes forth with another one of those chapters from the unpublished sequels to Ages ...
