... should be sought around Scorpius. The more so as lambda ypsilon Scorpii are counted among the Babylonian mashuconstellations, and these twins, lambda ypsilon, play an important role also in the so-called Babylonian Creation Epic, as weapons of Marduk. In any case, Siduri, who must be closely related to Aegir and Ran of the Edda with their strange "Bierstube," as well as to the nun Gertrude, in whose public house the souls spent the first night after death (see above, p. 208, n. 9) takes pity on Gilgamesh in his ragged condition, listens to his tale of woe but advises him to return home and make the best ...

... order of the solar system dates back only to the seventh century B.C .13 By contrast, as presently accepted under the nebular condensation hypothesis of planetary formation, the planets have been in their places with bright shining faces for more than four billion years. Perhaps some are tempted to think that Velikovsky's reconstruction is overdramatic, but the strangeness dissipates as he pursues the trail of evidence. Ancient records indicate there was a time when the sun rose in the west and set in the east,14 when the length of the day, the month, and the year were different from what they are today. For example, the year consisted of 360 days between the fifteenth ...

... , then large amounts of magma would rise and work its way to the surface to form hot spots and also lots of volcanoes. Venus is, of course, covered by tens of thousands of volcanoes. In any case, shutting down volcanism in Venus' early period is not explained, and even if it were to occur for some strange reason, over time, hot spot volcanism would follow thereafter. Volcanism will outgas the internal gases locked in the crust and mantle, and among these gases would be argon-40 and argon-36. But let us accept and examine more closely Morrison's view that Venus' crust froze billions of years ago so that argon-40 could not escape the interior. ...

... period were extincted between 5,000 and 30,000 years ago over the face of the globe. The extinctions occurred from over practically the whole arctic area and down to the southern part of the United States, Europe and Middle Asia, where their close relatives, the mastodon, now-extinct elephants, and modern elephants browsed. It is strange that no human skeletons have yet been found, since we have their drawings of the mammoth. Obviously if the date of each specimen were to be taken seriously, we would have, as one writer argued, a series of local catastrophes. All over the world, he might have added. Nor were the frozen elephants found encased ...

... also; and as to the rest, in the same form Moses had received them, in that they saw them still; but they also saw buds and branches grown out of Aaron's rod, with ripe fruits upon them; they were almonds, the rod having been cut out of that tree. The people were so amazed at this strange sight, that though Moses and Aaron were before under some degree of hatred, they now laid that hatred aside, and began to admire the judgment of God concerning them; so that hereafter they applauded what God had decreed, and permitted Aaron to enjoy the priesthood peaceably. And thus God ordained him priest three several times, and ...

... Canada, but who wrote about Mexico, C.E . Brasseur de Bourbourg [3 ]. He wrote several books on the subject of ancient Mexican beliefs and ancient Mexican history. He also wrote a small book investigating possible connections between Egyptian and Mexican beliefs. When I read Brasseur's books on the ancient history of Mexico I found it strange that he, being a clergyman, did not observe, or did not dare to report that in the Scriptures many pages deal with the very same events he was describing. He reported that cataclysmic events had been found in Mexican lore, events also described by several Spanish historians of the sixteenth century. These were events of great violence ...

... Beaumont CD Home | Contents Part One: Britain's Great Antiquity Chapter VII The Secret Chambers "Read not to contradict and confute, nor to believe and take for granted, but to weigh and consider. . . . Histories make men wise." FRANCIS BACON. WHAT was the relationship between these stone-worshippers and the Egyptians? There are somewhat strange clues which have not received the attention they deserve, one being that archaeology is slowly beginning to recognize that the origins of the land of the Pharaohs must be sought rather in the West than in the East. One interesting indication concerns the Egyptian rock-cut tumuli, with their various compartments, and the dolmen-passage tombs or long-chambered barrows of Britain ...

... the Bible." But in actuality, the book treated the scriptures as "human history, as history on a plane of man and not of God. It seems to this reviewer that the book deals a decisive blow to the idea of divine intervention into human affairs." Maximillian Berners in the Los Angeles Times complained that "this strange volume is not easy to read" and that "it is far too long," but that it "still has an exciting pull to it, and it will become a best seller." Back East, Kenneth B. Roberts took a thoughtful look at the book for the Providence Sunday Journal and concluded that a "persuasive ...

... a great gale at 60 miles an hour prevented liners from entering Queenstown Harbour. A deluge swept the land. The Thames rose 7 feet above normal and flooded a great area, and it was stated that 27 million tons of water were dumped on London alone. Was this a mere coincidence? The earlier period of September 1927 saw some strange occurrences in the Pacific Ocean, including earthquakes, tidal waves, and a blazing island. The dates of some of these visitations were carelessly reported-newspaper correspondents would assist enormously in these investigations if they would give the date and the hour when they can-but the events in question had the merit of being theorised upon by the famous scientist, Sir ...
