... in researching Saturn's mythical history. In this inquiry I followed two simple principles: I would proceed without any prior assumption as to how the sky actually looked in ancient times; and I would not disregard any recurring myth, no matter how preposterous the theme might appear. Ultimately, the question was whether, beneath the surface of all the strange celestial tales that have come down to us, something more than sheer make believe may be at work. To simply ask the question is to begin looking at myth in a different way. I offer in these pages a brief summary of the results, not as an attempt to prove a point (hence, limited footnotes (2 ...

... long time. His observation that the knowledge that the year was 365.242 days in length could only have been known to a small band of dedicated astronomers' flies in the face of how the Mayan Priests controlled the fears of the great unwashed'. Their whole purpose was to keep track of the cycle of days, linking that strange 260 day calendar into whatever annual cycle then existed. Michael denigrates the purpose of Maya calendrics by inferring that the vast majority of Mayans were more concerned with superstitions than with astronomical realities'. I agree that the great unwashed of Maya times were concerned with their process of lucky and unlucky days. It is this point that causes me ...

... vegetation manages to grow, there is water trapped just beneath the surface.- These Nubian sandstone pillars are a feature of the area, they are known traditionally as "Solomon's Pillars".- Acacia trees and camels are quite common, so even though it looks quite dry, it can sustain life.- A closer view of these strange sandstone formations which are really quite impressive. Glueck found these traces of copper mining which consisted of mines themselves and slag piles and on a combined basis of historical probability and the pottery that he found, he dated this activity from the time of Solomon onwards, from the 10th to the 6th century BC. His conviction about the date ...

94. Recent Finds In Geology. Ch.17 Supplement (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... and many others, including Schiaparelli and Simon Newcomb, participated in a long debate on the astronomical and geological possibility of a sudden change in the direction of the terrestrial axis, a debate that was erroneously thought to have been started as a consequence of Worlds in Collision. It was understood that such a change must have taken place unless the strange finds are to be left without explanation. The theory of drifting continents, offered as a substitute, was rejected for many reasons. Jeffreys showed that the mobile force invoked by Wegener is one hundred billion times too small to move the continents. Eddington thought that possibly only the crust, in its entirety, moved, and the axis ...

In this " till " or " hard-pan " are found some strange and characteristic stones. They are boulders, not water worn, not rounded, as by the action of waves, and yet not angular- for every point and projection has been ground off. They are not very large, and they differ in this and other respects from the boulders found in the other portions of the Drift. ...

... heard expressed the other day which could be significant to Biblical research. I was watching a TV programme on UFOs [BBC Television's documentary, Horizon], a subject I regard with the utmost suspicion, and noted one incident that affected a group of American forest workers. They were in the forest when a brilliant ball of light emitting a strange sound was seen nearby. One of the men, about six foot in height, approached the object which, according to his colleagues, sent an electrical discharge at him. They apparently fled and their colleague was not found for five days. When he was eventually found some miles away he related a story about being taken aboard a ...

... also informs us that scientists in 1950 "believed that Venus' temperature .. .might not be very much warmer" than Earth. There is clearly no mention of Rupert Wildt's historically significant work at all by Asimov. Isaac Asimov's books are usually very precise about citing contributions made by members of the scientific community; so it is indeed strange that he did not see fit to even mention Wildt with respect to Venus' temperature. When the high surface temperature of Venus was reported in 1956, Dr. Francis D. Drake, a highly respected scientist, wrote the following in Physics Today, "We would have expected a temperature only slightly greater than that of Earth ( ...

... S. A. Cook discussed the similarities in the names and policies of the two Jehorams: "The coincidence of these traditions may tempt the conjecture that there was only one Jehoram over a single kingdom, and that we have the Judaean and Ephraemite versions." And the "ghost" Jehoram hypothesis has been re-argued more recently by John Strange of Copenhagen, in a paper read at the annual meeting of the Collegium Biblicum in January 1973. Strange believes that "the Deuteronomist deliberately used every ambiguity in his sources and created a ghost' in Israel" (7 ). But neither Strange nor Cook argued that some of Ahab's years and deeds had been attributed to this " ...

... not fit the bill. Astronomers have so far been unable to discover what it is or how far away it is. So they are merely referring to it as "the mystery object." First spotted in a color photograph in the constellation Serpens by George Djorgovski and his team at the California Institute of Technology, it appears as a strangely colored point of light. Turning a large telescope on the object, the team spectrally analyzed its light. A star's spectrum can be used to determine the elements it is composed of, its temperature, and, according to received wisdom, it's speed relative to Earth. The mystery object's spectrum, however, was something of a surprise ...
