61. The Atlantis Blueprint [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:2 (Dec 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents World Wide Web focus The Atlantis Blueprint www.flem-ath.com Every summer solstice thousands of pilgrims gather at sacred sites; Stonehenge, the Great Pyramid, Machu Picchu and many others to pay respect to the past, hoping perhaps, to merge in some way with the mysterious power represented by the great megaliths. It seems that a long lost truth lies just beyond our grasp, hidden within the lines and crevices of these massive stones. Many feel certain that we might recapture that elusive past if only we could find the key. In Atlantis Blueprint we will show how these ancient structures are ultimately linked to a vast geographic survey. We have deciphered the code which ties these mysterious sites together as part of an ambitious enterprise undertaken by scientists from Atlantis. Table of Contents Preface: Coins in a fountain- earth dragons- Feng shui- geomancy- cording the Temple- from priest-craft to science- the blueprint- Rand and Colin's collaboration. Chapter One: Hapgood's Secret Quest for Atlantis. ...
62. Monitor [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... A programme of investigation is underway and chaos theory has been invoked but one theory has already come a cropper in the light of data received from a charge monitoring satellite. In the face of such obvious ignorance about electricity in astronomy, it seems astronomers are a little too hasty to dismiss its importance. New theory for Atlantis The Flood from Heaven by Eberhard Zangger, Sidgwick and Jackson 'If my conclusions were correct, Plato's account of Atlantis was in fact a retelling of the story of the Trojan War...'...and Stonehenge Montage (Monash University) Nov.91, pp. 3-5 Dr. Neil Thomas, a retired engineer, goes even further than Professor Thom or Gerald Hawkins in his contention that the pre-Celtic Britons had a knowledge of mathematics and engineering far in advance of anything up to the present day. He reckons they developed a system of symbolic writing predating the Sumerians and established a solar calendar of 16 months and 365 days. Dr. Thomas has had the advantage of being able to interpret the meaning of ancient inscriptions, such as the circles ...

... century items being included. Starting with fossil footprints and giant skeletons the collection proceeds with cup-marks, petroglyphs, legends of gods and giants, American Indian astronomy, Celtic remains in Jamaica, ancient metallurgy and Noah's Ark, and ends with an extensive section on structural artefacts such as temples, dolmens, menhirs, vitrified forts, henges, pyramids, obelisks and ancient tunnels and mines. Astronomical alignments naturally figure prominently in this section starting with the pioneering work of Lockyer and others and going up to C. A. Newham's article on Stonehenge in Nature (1966). (Thom does not appear in this volume). The two volumes of Strange Phenomena (which are not to hand), are uniform with the above and cover curious geophysical events, including giant hailstones ball lightning, falls of fish, luminous portents of earthquakes, the Andes glow et al. Full bibliographical details are given for each item and the sections of each book are classified and thoroughly indexed by author and subject. The books are in ring-binder format to allow further sections to be added ...
65. Ancient Calendars [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... hard: but in any case there is a whole range of concepts required which depend on pre-existent mathematical sophistication; verticality, the plane, the uniqueness of a triangle given two sides and an angle (with exceptions), the definition of a circle in terms of constant radius, the use of construction lines in geometrical proof, etc. The next step is to measure the interval from solstice to solstice, using the stick's shadow. There is certainly evidence of some Neolithic interest in, particularly, the summer solstice, notably at Stonehenge; but the dates of solstices are notoriously difficult to pin down within a day or two. Thus it is that the day on which we celebrate Christmas, 25th December, was the day, in classical times, on which the Sun was seen to move away from the 'solstice' or 'sun stopped' [7. It is pretty obvious that the interest in the solstices was ceremonial rather than calendrical- because the solstices are the worst possible dates to identify in measuring the year. The nearer the Sun is to an ...

... the solstices- that is, by defining the place on the horizon where the position of sunrise and sunset stops moving north (at midsummer) or south (at midwinter) and reverses back towards the equinoctial positions at due east and west. Because the rate of change in the Sun's real position (declination)- not to be confused of course with its daily motion- changes very gradually around the solstices, it is very difficult to pinpoint these accurately. The well known phenomenon of the midsummer sunrise over the Heel Stone at Stonehenge, when seen from the centre of the site, in fact takes place on a number of mornings before and after June 21st, so tiny are the solar movements at that time! Marking the solstice point However, if the alignment is really long- say twenty miles or more -and if the foresight is a clean-cut mountain peak, these difficulties can be resolved. For a midsummer sunset observatory the ideal foresight is a mountain in the north-west with a slightly concave right slope; thus the observer can arrange his position to make ...
67. Gods of the New Millennium by Alan F. Alford [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1999:2 (Feb 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents Gods of the New Millennium 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 secrets of civilisation and the knowledge to build pyramids etc. He identifies in particular the Sumerian gods Enlil and Enki as key players: they came from a tenth planet, 'Nibiru', which has an extremely elliptical 3,600 year orbit, resulting in periodic visits ...

69. The Sword in the Stone [SIS C&C Review $]
... probably the source of natural bronzes in the Middle Bronze Age long before tin was known as a metal. Cornwall therefore has a strong claim to be the home of Mycenaean and Shaft Grave bronze [5, at least on the geological evidence' [6. Astonishingly then, the discovery of bronze seems to have taken place in Britain, launching the Bronze Age revolution. That, for Dayton, seems to be what the geological evidence tells us. The wealth of the Wessex culture, that branch of Beaker culture responsible for raising Stonehenge, speaks eloquently, for Dayton, of the importance of Britain as a supplier of bronze, of raw material and finished artefacts, in the Early Bronze epoch: 'Was Wessex the middleman in the trade in Cornish and Devon coppers and bronzes to Europe, at the same time that trade existed in palstaves between England and northern Portugal and Spain (Clarke, 1952)? Did the discovery of bronze actually take place in Cornwall, from mixed Cornish copper/tin ores which appear in brightly coloured outcrops on the cliffs, together ...
70. Editorial [Horus $]
... confirmed that my friend's grandfather had been enrolled in such a unit after Spring planting. In ancient times, both sides expected the other to attack when Venus appeared as the Evening Star, so we understand if they prepare for battle while Venus is invisible. But we can also expect the training period to be 90 days in light of the 90 days allowed for superior conjunction invisibility in the astronomical records. But even in modern times we have 90-day training periods during the Civil War and World War II. Alban Wall's article "The Stonehenge: What is it?" explains how the Stonehenge was used as a calendar, including the phases of the Moon. This reminded me that not too long ago, our own calendars also included phases of the Moon, and of the old tradition of planting by the Moon. Then it occurred to me that the calendar used by Grandfather's grandfather did not hang on the kitchen wall. Rather, it hung in the evening (or morning) sky. Today we dismiss planting by the Moon as mere superstition. But in ...
