1. The Location of Punt/Ophir Part I [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... ,[1 ] written from age-old sacred oral tradition by an African witch doctor from the Zulu tribe. Mutwa describes- among many other things- the coming of the very first White colonizers ever seen by the Black people at the Zambezi. In the oral tradition these were called the "Ma-Iti," i.e . "the Strange Ones," which Mutwa thinks was a corruption of a word for "Phoenicians" in use at the time. This is corroborated by Phoenician artifacts found in Southern Africa. As the original complete edition of Indaba, My Children is out of print and difficult to obtain, I will quote from it at length. This is essential ...

... kindred sort], have reference either to the Stars, their configuration, their risings and their settings, etc. And Proctor wrote in his Myths and Marvels of Astronomy that the chief charm of this study does not reside in the wonders revealed to us by the science, but in the lore and legends connected with its history, the strange fancies with which in old times it has been associated, the half-forgotten myths to which it has given birth. Yet these myths, old as the present forms of some of them may be, are but modern and trivial when one goes back into the dim past to their probable fountainhead among the Himalayas and on the Ganges, or ...

Krishna, whose name is black, is painted dark blue; and SriRama, whose skin is green, is called blue. ' 1 shall add several other strange passages from the Rig Veda "By thee Agni, Varuna observant of his duties" [of revolving and Mitra and Aryaman, bountiful divinities, are animated; so that thou hast been born comprehending them all universally in all their functions, and encompassing them all as the rim does the spokes of a wheel: ' (ii, ...

... fable aimed at particular tendencies in current science, philosophy, or religion. It is a thoroughly serious and sincere attempt to present what is to the author's mind the true and final solution of one of the greatest and most fascinating of all problems connected with the history of mankind. That this true solution has not been furnished before is not strange. The suggestion that primitive Eden was at the Arctic Pole seems at first sight the most incredible of all wild and willful paradoxes. And it is only within the lifetime of our own generation that the progress of geological discovery has relieved the hypothesis of fatal antecedent improbability. Moreover, when one considers the enormous variety and breadth of the ...

... men could have been so ignorant both of the land and of the sea, as tis manifest they have been till of late ages? They had very different fancies concerning the figure of the Earth. They knew no land beyond our continent, and that very imperfectly too ; and the Torrid Zone they thought utterly uninhabitable. We think it strange, taking that short date of the World, which we give it, that men should not have made more progress in the knowledge of these things; but how impossible is it then, suppose them to have been from everlasting? They had the same wit and passions that we have, the same motives that we have, can ...

... "Nyo-i hoju", mentioned in the Chinese and Japanese legends. The same story teaches us that children of then and Nagi (Naga women) are "of a watery nature", and cannot stand sunshine or wind, but are happiest when playing in the water.52 So far the Jatakas of COWELL'S edition. It is a strange fact that in all these tales no mention is made of the Naga's nature of god of clouds and rain, although this is the main reason why the Chinese identified him with their dragon. In the legends, translated from the Chinese Tripitaka by CHAVANNES 53, however, so much stress is laid on the rain giving capacity of the ...

... of pottery or arrowhead, one's credulity should not be stretched to the breaking point to recognize that the first chariots in Egypt, as elsewhere, were not used as war vehicles, or that a significant period of time elapsed between the production of the first chariots and their eventual use in warfare. On the other hand, there is something strangely anomalous in the concept that the Hyksos should be credited with the invention of the chariot when they were so completely non-productive in the arts otherwise. Actually, direct evidence that the Hyksos ever used or possessed a single chariot is totally missing. The Hyksos produced no inscriptions of any kind. The entire concept of Hyksos possession of chariots is ...

The Absurdity of Neutron Stars Thoth Vol III, No. 16 Dec 1, 1999 Nowhere is the gravitational paradigm of cosmology shown to exhibit more strangeness than in compact high energy phenomena in deep space. A report in the journal Nature of 15 November proposes that a recently discovered star "is made of an exotic stuff called strange matter', never yet seen on Earth". This seemingly simple model began to show signs of strain many years ago when the first millisecond pulsar was ...

... to congratulate you for this masterpiece'...Erich von Daniken). But not so fast! Robert Temple may not be so learned as de Santillana and von Dechend, but his book is a serious one: well researched, and with an adequate complement of footnotes, appendices, index and bibliography. His starting point is a strange one; an East African tribe (the Dogon) living in the Mali republic not far from Timbuktu. Two French anthropologists, Marcel Griaule and Germaine Dieterlen, spent many years with these people, who eventually came to trust them to the extent of sharing with them the most precious and secret knowledge of their tribe. This knowledge is ...
