71. Velikovsky: Science or Anti-Science? [Pensee]
... reversals. And since the field is bipolar, a reversal must be "sudden." Velikovsky also ignores most of the results of oceanography concerning plate tectonics, the changing magnetic field of the Earth, and the legendary existence of "lost continents," such as Atlantis. The greatest arguments seem to arise over dating methods. It seems very strange that those dates with which Velikovsky agrees are correctly done, while those with which he disagrees are grossly in error. As examples of the latter, one may consider cave formations and Stonehenge. Various cave formations grow at different rates. Accurate dates can be determined by examination of cores or cross-sections. These datings show, as has often been pointed out before, that there were no cataclysmic changes affecting the Earth as a whole at times corresponding to Velikovsky's nearencounters. Formations under the Lincoln Memorial (or many bridges which used lime-based cements) do not in any way contradict this statement. In fact, they support it, since such formations can be dated by the same methods, and reveal the correct dates. ...

... could be said that ancient testimony tends to confirm my statement that the Propolyd comas are formed by electrical discharge of stellar material and therefore shaped by ambient electrical stresses.---- WOODHENGE FIND RIVALS STONE CIRCLES. BY NIGEL HAWKES, SCIENCE EDITOR Builders of the oak tree marvel; Bride eager to dance had devil to pay ARCHAEOLOGISTS have discovered traces of a huge and elaborate wooden temple dating back 5,000 years. Evidence shows that it was once one of the most important ceremonial sites in England, comparable in significance to Stonehenge. Nine concentric rings of oak pillars once stood on the site at Stanton Drew in Somerset, surrounded by an enormous ditch. Each upright would have been up to a metre across and probably stood eight metres above the ground. All that can be seen today is a later stone circle. Such wooden henges are unique to Britain, and this one is twice as large as any of the other seven known. The traces were found by archaeologists from English Heritage while they were carrying out a routine survey, using instruments that ...
75. Cosmic Catastrophes and the Origin of Megalithic Cultures [SIS C&C Review $]
... ask ourselves, therefore, what joy of living or anticipation of death could have led to this type of architecture, we should try at least to determine the correct millennium of their construction. Dating the megalith culture is extremely difficult because there is no written history of those times. There are not even sketchy chronological reports; at most there are myths and legends which cannot be easily attributed to those times and constructions. As far as I can see, there is only one real pointer: incisions of daggers in the sandstones of Stonehenge, which are frequently described as Mycenaean. However this does not really provide an answer since Stonehenge is subdivided into between three and four construction periods which are located far from each other in time. Moreover, there are grave doubts whether the daggers are indeed 'Mycenaean'; the only consensus that exists says that the Wessex Culture (Stonehenge IIIa, IIIb) had trading links with Mycenae. The development stages of Stonehenge are nowadays spread over a full millennium: I: wall and ditch arrangement including Aubrey Holes, dated to -2600 ...
76. Variations on a Theme of Philolaos [Kronos $]
... . Elsewhere, he identifies Aden as Eden, but he does not relate this to the position of the pole. I would point out that these two locations are separated by about ninety degrees. Thus it may be that the sub-Saturnian point was in Aden and that the north pole was at that same time near the southern end of the Davis Strait. The meridian involved would pass through or quite near some very intriguing ancient sites: Eden, Mecca, Sinai, Gizeh, Alexandria, Knossos, Delphi, Dodona, and even Stonehenge. If the Hyperboreans mentioned by the Greeks really were connected with the Stonehenge site, then calling them Hyperboreans or "northerners" would make much more sense, since during the Age of Kronos the Stonehenge site would have been almost straight north from Delphi and Dodona (rather than, as today, more west than north). In all of these cases we are mainly concerned with the sites, and not necessarily with any edifices later built there. But I would not want to exclude the possibility that some structures that are ...
77. Book Reviews [SIS C&C 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 and countless explanatory figures, the book is replete with material ranging from 14th-century manuscripts via books, handbills and engravings of the intervening period down to contributions from Mr Punch, THE TIMES and Lowe. The greater part of the book, in fact, is given over to historical aspects, and as much as an investigation of the monument itself, this compilation is a record of the nation's preoccupation ...
78. THE LATELY TORTURED EARTH: PART I: ATMOSPHERICS: 4.Magnetism and Axial Tilts [Quantavolution Website]
... . Controversy naturally is engendered by any claim that the planets and Earth have shifted their axes in million of years, if not billions. Still, every oriented edifice or monument built since about 2600 years ago (after the last of the catastrophic shifts, as argued by Velikovsky) [31 seem to have remained fixed in relation to the present skies, while those built before then appear to have moved. Certain claims of "fixed" structures warrant study. The most famous is the Great Pyramid in Egypt. Recently, the Stonehenge megalithic "astronomical observatory" has also been widely discussed. The age of the Great Pyramid of Ghiza is in question. It has been ascribed to around 3200 B. C. and to other times. But no one suggests that it was built after 687 B. C. or for that matter after 1450 B. C. that is, after the end of the Middle Bronze Age. The West face of the Great Pyramid, which Stecchini believes was drawn first and is the basic face, is oriented 2'30" ...
79. Skara Brae: A Time Capsule of Catastrophism? [SIS C&C Review $]
... change, was a part of this wider pattern. In future articles Mandelkehr will be developing the evidence for the global event having an astronomical cause. In view of this, some other speculations about the nature of the Skara Brae settlement are worth noting. The idea has often been mooted, notably by MacKie, that the frantic building of vast megalithic structures around the end of the Neolithic period reflects a fear on the part of the builders [14. Whatever their precise function, there seems little doubt that megalithic structures such as Stonehenge and the Ring of Brodgar were, at least in part, intended to monitor the movements of heavenly bodies, whether the Sun, Moon or some other object [15. If the heavens were "inconstant", as catastrophists allow, then we have a ready explanation of why so much effort and expense was incurred to build these huge monuments. The Ring of Brodgar, very close to Skara Brae, is one of the most impressive stone circles in Britain, and is surrounded by a vast circular ditch hewn out of ...
80. Krupp And Velikovsky [Kronos $]
... the archaeological evidence, Jon Patrick's authoritative paper on Temple Wood has shown that this site has no connection with lunar observations at all. Of all the sites that Krupp could have chosen, the one he selected has as much connection with lunar observations as the White House or the Kremlin.(33) To conclude this section on the demise of Thom's megalithic astronomy I quote a most considered opinion, that of Professor Glyn Daniel, on the most "recent state of the art" concerning megalithic science: "The astronomical purpose of Stonehenge and other stone rings was not seriously argued until after World War II, when Gerald S. Hawkins of Boston University proposed in his book Stonehenge Decoded (1966) that the monument was a giant calculator for the prediction of eclipses, both lunar and solar. Five years later Thom, in his book Megalithic Lunar Observatories, postulated that many megalithic monuments served for observation of the movements and phases of the moon. Thom's surveys had already led him to argue for the existence of a megalithic 'yard' measuring 2.72 feet and to ...
