51. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 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 ...

54. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... 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 ...
55. The Obliteration of Human Signs [Books] [de Grazia books]
... 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 ...
56. Book Reviews [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 3 No 3 (Jan 1981) Home | Issue Contents Book Reviews STONEHENGE AND ITS MYSTERIES by Michael Balfour (MacDonald and Jane's, London 1979, £6 .95) "This is the first heavily-illustrated book to explore the extraordinary story of Europe's most famous megalithic monument. It sets out in an original way both the facts and the mysteries of the origins, construction, and purposes of the stones, holes, banks and barrows of Stonehenge (which attracted 815,000 visitors in 1977)." So runs the dust-jacket blurb. "Heavily" illustrated is certainly the "mot juste" here: besides photographs from over one hundred years ...
57. Society News. C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . Question time was lively and even led to a discussion of AD dating modifications. It was plain that Janek's somewhat extreme views on some subjects did not meet with easy acceptance by many in his audience but, as an interdisciplinary exercise, it certainly made us all think. Emmet's original presentation was of his early thoughts on a connection between Stonehenge and King Arthur which have now come to fruition in his recently published book Arthur and Stonehenge, Britain's lost history. More ideas on this theme have been previously printed in C&CR 1999:2 under the title The Sword in the Stone. This second talk went into much detail about the evidence that Arthur was the equivalent of ...
58. Gods of the New Millennium by Alan F. Alford [Journals] [SIS Review]
... by Alan F. Alford (available from Eridu Books, PO Box 107, Walsall, UK, 1996 £24.00) Those who liked Erich von Daniken's Chariots of the Gods? will love this. In an Important Foreword', Alan Alford' promises us explanations of the Nazca lines, Easter Island, the Great Pyramid, Stonehenge, Machu Picchu - and hints that he can demonstrate a scientific basis for millennial fears, predicting that major changes will be directed at the Earth around that time. Gods of the New Millennium follows on from Zecharia Sitchin's The Twelfth Planet and argues that the gods of legend were really travellers from outer space, who brought with them the ...
59. Notes on this issue: Pensee IVR X [Journals] [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 ...
60. Natural Catastrophes During Bronze Age Civilisations [Journals] [Aeon]
... to have raised the subject of catastrophism in the public mind. There were two prejudices that needed to be gotten rid of, he said. The first was the general belief that the ancients were not capable of understanding astronomical matters. He thus ran through a long list of ancient achievements- with a detour that included the Egyptian pyramids, Stonehenge, and Sodom and Gomorrha- by such personages as Hipparchos (via Meton), Gildas, Gervase of Canterbury, Tycho Brahe, Kepler, Halley, Cassini, Biot, up to Luis Alvarez and even Louis Frank, most of whom have been convinced that catastrophic impacts from celestial bodies have periodically bombarded the Earth. One of the ...
