71. Echo Sounder Outlines Strange Patches Over Underwater Peaks [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 4: July 1978 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Echo Sounder Outlines Strange Patches Over Underwater Peaks February 11, 1977, on the s.s. Remuera, in the South Pacific. (00 24'S, 88 06' W). The echo sounder clearly showed an undulating sea floor with sharp peaks, some 600 fathoms below the ship. The peaks were recorded distincly but above several faint, elongated, flamelike patches were noted. These patches were interpreted as changes in water density due, perhaps, to volcanic or hydrothermal activity. (Howard, K.E.; "Soundings in a Volcanic Area," Marine Observer, 48:20, 1978.)

72. Fingerprints of the Gods by Graham Hancock [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1996:1 Home¦ Issue Contents REVIEWS Fingerprints of the Gods by Graham Hancock (Heinemann, London, 1995) Hancock's book is a fascinating account of his search for explanations for many strange facts. It follows the chronology of his travels, visiting many of the sites of ancient monuments which have puzzled archaeologists and historians. Some readers may be irritated but I found it an exhilarating journey from place to place, showing us the author's thought processes en route. I'm not sure he should publicise his illegal climbing of the pyramid at Giza but the resulting photos taken by his intrepid wife Santha are a spectacular contribution to a beautifully produced book. He starts by quoting directly from Charles Hapgood's book Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings [1, which provides the starting point for Hancock's quest as well as the evidence for the findings that (a) about 11,000 years ago there was an advanced civilisation on earth which was completely swamped, (b) there were some survivors who tried to teach others what they remembered ...

74. Modern Episode Of Offshore Booms [Science Frontiers Website]
... on seismographs suggested an atmospheric phenomenon. The National Enquirer (January 24, 1978) rather predictably linked the booms to UFOs. In the federal government, the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) was assigned the task of tracking down the booms. In March, NRL reported that all of the 183 detonations they investigated were due to supersonic aircraft. That seemed to end the matter-- just as the Condon Report signalled the demise of UFOs!! The booms had an interesting side effect: they triggered urgent requests for the two Strange Phenomena sourcebooks from several universities, think-tanks, and intelligence agencies. There may be more to this than meets the ear. For more information, see Walter Sullivan's articles in the new York Times of January 13 and 19, 1978. The Strange Phenomena sourcebooks are superceded by a series of four geophysics Catalogs. One of these, Earthquakes, Tides, Unidentified Sounds, describes many other mysterious "booms."

Lucas, Ancient Egyptian Materials and Industries (4th ed., rev. by J.R. Harris, London, 1962) and P. Warren, 'The First Minoan Stone Vases', Kretika Chronika 19, 1965, pp. 7-43. John E. Dayton, Teneriffe Editor's note: see also Michael Rowland letter, p. 60. The strange history of Gerrards Cross Gerrards Cross, west of London, is a commuter village and home to city types and BMWs parked in driveways witha strange past. According to the official legend an early saint went on walkabout planting crosses at various places in England. This is a tale that disguises a deliberate act of sanctification of sites associated with devils. In other words, Banbury Cross and Gerrards Cross had pagan shrines which had remained active into the early medieval era. This is not surprising as the Chilterns are marginal land unsuitable for ...
76. Echidna Eccentricities [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 74: Mar-Apr 1991 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Echidna Eccentricities Monotremes: platypus (below); one of two species of echidnas (above) The echidna is one of the monotremes-- an egg-laying mammal. Like its relative, the platypus, it is a strange mixture of mammalian, marsupial, and reptilian characteristics. For example, echidna eggs are soft and leathery, like those of reptiles, but they are brooded in a marsupial-like pouch. The emerging baby echidna has an egg tooth like the birds and reptiles, while the adult has no teeth at all. Rather, it has a narrow snout through which it ingests ants and termites caught on its sticky tongue. In this it resembles the mammalian ant-eaters, which are also toothless but an ocean away from Australia. In fact, the echidna is often called a "spiny anteater" for it has the sharp spines of a hedgehog or porcupine. There are more anatomical peculiarities, but let us focus ...

... became the 'soul' of Osiris and the symbol for the planet Venus- the morning star..." Electrical Catastrophe Effects Dear Sir, I am writing to tell you about a theory I 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 spaceship with strange alien beings, etc., etc. One scientist has been able to offer a perfectly natural Earthly explanation for this. He suggested that, in the time prior to earthquakes ...

... was vouchsafed as a sign to King Hezekiah, Immanuel Velikovsky, who has examined the sources with painstaking care, writes: "The rabbinical sources state in a definite manner that the disturbance in the movement of the sun happened on the evening of the destruction of Sennacherib's army by a devouring blast."(7) In other words, according to the rabbinical sources cited by Velikovsky, the sequence of events was 1) a disturbance in the apparent diurnal orbiting of the sun by ten "ma'alot"; and 2) the strange events of the ensuing night when a mysterious heavenly blast destroyed Sennacherib's army. VI Did something equally unusual occur during the Great Mahabharata War during the night following the slaying of King Jayadratha? Until the day of King Jayadratha's death, the warring sides in the Great Mahabharata War had restricted all their fighting to the daytime: there was no fighting at night. This customary state of affairs changed during the night following Jayadratha's slaying, and did so with avengeance; pandemonium reigned all through that night. What is more, the leading ...
80. Chapter II. The First Glimpses of Egyptian Astronomy [Dawn of Astronomy (Book)] [Books]
... was shown that Egypt, if we consider her monuments, came first in the order of time. I have next to show that in the earliest monuments we have evidences of the existence and utilisation of astronomical knowledge. It is impossible to approach such a subject as the astronomy of the ancient Egyptians without being struck with surprise that any knowledge is available to help us in our inquiries. A century ago, the man to whom we owe more than to all others in this matter; the man who read the riddle of those strange hieroglyphs, which, after having been buried in oblivion for nearly two thousand years, were then again occupying the learned, was not yet born. I refer to Champollion, who was born in 1790 and died in the prime of his manhood and in the midst of his work, in 1832. Again, a century ago the French scientific expedition, planned by the great Napoleon, which collected for the use of all the world facts of importance connected with the sites, the buildings, the inscriptions, and everything which ...
