... fails to recognize the point where his explanations for anomalies represent only wishful thinking. Or a large possibility for self-deception may arise when one convinces himself that his solution is correct because it agrees with one or more other theories which in themselves remain unproven, or which stand on precarious premises, while his final conclusion remains contradicted by the facts. Strange as it may seem, there are several examples in critical areas where it has been reasoned that because each of two theories is contradicted by the same fact, the evidence does not stand against either theory. [Footnote: See R-FJJ, p. 20 for a classical example.] Such situations should provide the clue that both theories ...

... was both a friend and an enemy. He was attracted, influenced, enriched by its wisdom, its poetry, its history : he was challenged and repelled by its religion and (apart from the kindred influence of Stoicism) by its morals. The problem then arose how a Greek-speaking Jew could best maintain his place in two worlds so strangely diverse as those of Zion and Hellas : how he could commend his own faith and practice to the Greeks whose intellectual life he shared, and uphold their authority and prestige over against the cults and traditions of Hellas. In answer to these problems there came into being a considerable literature in which the names of Greek authors were used with ...

... of what happened. The evidence suggests that oral language arose suddenly, not from a previous "mother" or proto-language but from radically new conditions, needs and context, and arose in the context of a crucially dramatic shared experience.- THE ABSURDITY OF NEUTRON STARS By Wal Thornhill 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". In other words, it may be a "strange star". This bizarre suggestion comes out of ...

14. Ra as Saturn [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... phenomenon that is restricted to northern regions and hardly, if ever, seen at the latitude of Egypt. But there is more. The Egyptian Ra was, by the Egyptians themselves, assimilated to the god Atum, and, in fact, this deity is often referred to in Egyptian documents as Atum-Ra. This god bore a specific and strange characteristic. Atum was honored as a sun of night.(22) Now, I ask you, does the Sun shine at night? Students of Egyptian mythology have long grappled with the exact meaning that lies hidden beneath this strange characteristic of Atum. The best that Wallis Budge could offer by way of an explanation was that Atum ...

... his reasons for not advocating the thought. It is found in " Kant's Cosmology," by Hattie ; pp. 229 to 231. In the more than forty years of careful examination of the fossil records I have found an amazing amount of testimony that gives support to this contention; but the most astounding part of this testimony is the strange fact that nothing in the old records has been found logically arrayed against it. There is a natural scheme found prominent in all earth-building that harmonizes and dovetails into the establishment of a law of progression, and succession which nothing short of the decline of rings and the reign of earth-canopies successively can satisfactorily explain. Life-mutation is unquestionably so linked ...

... From: Horus Vol. 2 No. 3 (Fall 1986) Home | Issue Contents The Strange Phenomenon of Solar Prominences Alban Wall We are all familiar with the fact that clouds often assume the shapes of recognizable objects such as ships, people or animals. Though some of them can appear very realistic indeed, most times these ephemeral phantasms depend upon the observer's imagination as to what the cloud resembles; one viewer may see as a ship what another regards as a castle or some other figure. A similar phenomenon occurs when huge clouds of superhot gases, a deep scarlet in color, are ejected high into the sun's atmosphere. Called solar prominences, these gaseous ejecta are ...

... times 24, plus 2 (the flying fish). The solar year of that time must have had just that number of days, for the form of the Calendar does not allow the supposition that it was an arbitrary' year similar to the 304-day year of Romulus, for 20 INTRODUCTION instance. Posnansky was absolutely unable to explain this strange number. He tried to reconcile it with the number of days in our own year, lost himself in fruitless combinations, and got so hopelessly puzzled, that he gave up any further attempt. His ill-success was due to the thought-tool, or theory, which he employed. It was out of date', and therefore absolutely unsuitable ...

... and a powerful king and his son. These are described by Mutwa as tall white men with red beards, flowing blond hair and beards and blue eyes: to the black men these eyes appeared to "shine", and they were unwilling to meet the strangers' gaze. Sailing up the Zambezi, these arrivals, called "the Strange Ones", marched in single file, heavily weaponed and clad in bronze armour, to the kraal of the village headman, Lumbedu, where they offered bronze weapons in exchange for meal. Pictures of these men and even time-eaten bronze swords still exist in the possession of witch-doctors. They had a strange man with them whose skin was ...

... fresh in his mind. His eyes looked with envy on that land and on the wealth accumulated there. Solomon, whose name is a synonym for a wise, even the wisest, man, must be charged with most grievous political errors. In the latter part of his reign the builder of the Temple in Jerusalem became a worshiper of strange gods and a builder of high places to them. It is said that he built on the hills around Jerusalem sanctuaries to foreign deities because of the strange women he loved: ". . .his wives turned away his heart" (I Kings 11:4 ). Solomon planned, through his marriages with the daughter of Pharaoh ...
