... of the heliacal rising of Venus or Ishtar were carried out by the Babylonians,[1 ] the Mayas,[2 ] and the Incas [3 ] in hemispheres separated by oceans; records were made and kept, some of which are extant. It is well known that the Mayas also observed a Venus calendar, and it is strange that Egyptologists paid no attention to the fact that "the Mayas reckoned the Venus years in groups of five, making 2,920 days equal to 8 years of 365 days".[4 ] Neither did the- students of the calendar of the Mayas draw any conclusion from the Egyptian calendar. The Mayas, more than a ...

... had reached. Britain, the envoys went the king and proffered him the letter which they supposed was an implement of destruction to another, but which really betokened death to themselves. The king dissembled the truth, and entreated them hospitably and kindly. Then Amleth scouted all the splendour of the royal banquet like vulgar viands, and abstaining very strangely, rejected that plenteous feast, refraining from the drink even as from the banquet. All marveled that a youth and a foreigner should disdain the carefully cooked dainties of the royal board and the luxurious banquet provided, as if it were some peasant's relish. So, when the revel broke up, and the king was dismissing his friends ...

... . Thomas, be it noted, had before him none of the evidence to influence him of an antiquarian nature. He arrived at his conclusions solely as a petrographer. The Devil himself haunted these scenes of former fire and dissolution! The Mabinogion relates how Pwyll, Prince of Dyved, when hunting at Narberth Castle met the Fiend himself. Strange hounds, white in colour with scarlet ears, chased off his quarry and were in turn driven off by Pwyll, when a hunts-man, riding an enormous horse, arrived in a fine rage, and was recognized at once by the Prince as the Fiend. Hot words were exchanged, but ultimately the quarrel was adjusted and the two ...

... Mars. However there are doubts. Organic molecules are not common in asteroids and meteorites from any known planet - so could it have become contaminated on Earth? The dating of the fossils' was queried and it was pointed out that the inclusions approached the limit of size capable of containing genetic material, although microorganisms on Earth live in some strange places and some are almost as small, though those which produce magnetite crystals are much larger. Some chemists say the temperature necessary to form the carbonate globules was far too high to allow life. By the end of the year further studies argued against the structures being microfossils. In 1881and 1961claims were made of fossils' in meteorites, ...

... revealed must be disclosed! Bishop Percy (in his preface to Mallet's Northern Antiquities) dilates on "that remarkable air of secrecy and mystery with which the Druids concealed their knowledge from the laity, forbidding that they should ever be committed to writing". When they did set pen to parchment they used the Greek tongue and letters, a strange fact when we consider that the British people were supposed to be mere barbarians, ignorant of the world beyond their shores until the Romans kindly undertook to enslave them. Nevertheless, from early times they also used the Ogham script, a system of strokes above and below the line, the parent, many believe, of all others, ...

... , he neglects the first commandment: "I am the Eternal, thy God," for he commits his crime in the dark and thinks that none sees him, not even the Lord, whose eyes float over all the world, and see good as well as evil. He oversteps the second commandment: "Thou shalt not have strange gods besides Me..., I am a jealous God," who is wroth against faithlessness, whether toward Me, or toward men. He breaks the third commandment: "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord in vain," for he swears he has not committed adultery, but he did so. He ...

... all worthwhile in that scientists now had a firm understanding of the early history of the solar system. But when one compares the expectations contained in publicity releases on the project from the early 1960's with the results contained in post-mortem accounts, nothing is changed. Lunar rocks show unexplainable remanent magnetism; certain localities on the moon are strongly, and strangely, radioactive; previous notions about cosmic abundances of elements are violated at every turn- but all this is neatly tucked away into a system of foregone conclusions, and everyone is happy. There is impressive evidence never alluded to by the Apollo teams that many, and perhaps most, of the moon's craters are not products of random impacts by ...

... and more unstable. In a fit of self-indulgence and lasciviousness he "married" one of his daughters, or - which amounts to the same thing - placed her in his private harem.6 This was scarcely with the blessing of Tiy, the mother of the child; she was a jealous and revengeful woman. And be displayed other strange traits. Amenhotep the Magnificent, given to luxury and overindulgence, was the only pharaoh who had himself portrayed in female clothes. Pharaohs were never represented in civil dress, much less in female attire. Cyril Aldred, in a recent issue of the Bulletin of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (February 1957), reproduced such a sculpture ...

... also a blind berserker and the Norse Hoder, Oedipus and Bellerophon. Nergal, Indra and Thor of the red beard all shake heaven in their fury. The actual combat myth is universal, with a hero defeating a monster or dragon in myth all round the world. Examples from Polynesia and the north coast of America agree in so many strange details that it can hardly be just coincidence. Basically a monster threatens heaven and is killed by the hero, usually by his entering the belly of the monster and inexplicably, for most explanations of myth, emerging bald, as well as enfeebled or sometimes in his death throes. Jonah and the whale is a biblical example. A ...

... the Earth, wherein he postulated that a comet was responsible for the Biblical deluge. Since the days of Whiston there have been numerous authors who have conjectured all manner of physical and non-physical explanations. There are notable books and papers, without doubt, that contain good information, although most by far are replete with heaps of misinformation and equally strange interpretations. Despite our present knowledge we still have a lot to learn about what comets are exactly. One thing we do know now is that they are not "the nearest thing to nothing that can exist and yet be visible." [6 ] Petersen's book, New Insights to Antiquity, might be classed as an example of ...
