... very first. It reveals none of the painful steps from primeval beginnings passing through the Palaeolithic, Neolithic, and Bronze Ages to that of Iron. It apparently burst upon the scene in exotic radiance, its perfected civilization accordingly having been described as a miracle. Science cannot admit any such miracle and another explanation must be forthcoming. Observe how strange was this ancient Egyptian civilization. It consisted usually of isolated settlements along the banks of the Nile, principally in theDelta, and spread over considerable and largely separated distances, mainly inhabited by religious communities. Strange in that while these mysterious pioneers settled in the Nile Valley, bordering on Asia and Africa yet partaking of neither, they showed ...

72. Fingerprints of the Gods by Graham Hancock [Journals] [SIS 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 ...

... Phillip Clapham In The Bible Unearthed by Israel Finkelstein and Neil Asher Silberman (see review, p. 56), a great deal of credence is given to literary and textual criticism by scholars such as Van Seters, Thompson, Davies and Lemche. The question of Biblical textual criticism has been merrily bubbling away behind the scenes for years. Strangely, it has rarely overflowed into the consciousness of ordinary people and revisionists have generally dismissed it. They do not question the authenticity of the Bible during the Monarchy: it is considered a reliable historical anchor for their chronologies. SIS was in the forefront of rejecting Velikovsky's relocations of Ramesses II and III, most notably with the Glasgow Chronology ...

... giving more visible effects. Some sort of configuration in the past may have been located at the North Pole. Perhaps it was Saturn and the other planets, or perhaps it was just some sort of magnetic field-type structure. However from time to time right up to the present century, if you look at the Charles Fort material, these strange objects have been entering the Earth's atmosphere. Perhaps even now some UFO phenomena could be explained by them as well. There seems to have been a dampening effect. It seems in the past there was a greater amount of energy available, for whatever reason, and these things have decreased over time. Q2. Velikovsky suggested looking for ...

... I'm afraid that by no stretch of the imagination can I ever agree with Mr Warlow, and though I tend to agree more with Mr Calder, I do still think that to characterise WIC simply as a silly theory' is unjustly demeaning. I do think that WIC is essentially a crank' book, but I have built up a strange admiration for the man who, over the past couple of years, has led me up so many mythological garden paths, blind alleys and assorted gum- tress! Time and again it has struck me what an extraordinary man V must have been to have composed such a theory from such a wide diversity of sources. My job has ...

... a two-fold one: Why was Tiahuanaco built in that region? And why was its site just in that spot? The former question is less difficult to answer than the latter. The present environs of the prehistoric metropolis are disappointing, not to say forbidding. There seems to be practically nothing which might help to explain the flowering of so strangely high a culture in that region. The ruins of the great city are surrounded by a desolate waste with hardly any vegetation except rough grass; where no cereals grow except barley, and even this frequently fails to ripen; wheat is poor; maize is dwarfish and scant, the cobs hardly ever exceeding an inch in length; potatoes ...

[n2 Plato's Republic (Cornford trans.), p. 353.] Eisler understood it as the zodiac, strange to say [n3 Eisler, Weltenmantel und Himmelszelt (1910), pp. 97ff.]. Since those "undergirths" of the trireme did not go around the ship horizontally, but were meant to secure the mast (the 231 "tree" of the ship) which points upwards, we stand, on principle, for ...

(Saul, John M.; "Circular Structures of Large Scale and Great Age on the Earth's Surface", Nature, 271:345-349, 1978). ECHO SOUNDER OUTLINES STRANGE PATCHES OVER UNDERWATER PEAKS February 11, 1977, on the S.S . Remuera, in the South Pacific (000 24'S, 880 06'W). The echo sounder clearly showed an undulating sea floor with sharp peaks, some 600 fathoms below the ship. The peaks were recorded distinctly but above several faint, elongated, flame-like patches ...

... which have affected our view of the world have been cosmetic overlays of a rather baneful philosophy- a philosophic worldview which has been intensifying over at least the last century and a half and is ripe for a revolutionary change. (The one notable exception which may have far-reaching consequences- that of chaos theory- was first proposed under the rubric strange attractor (4 ) in 1963. Chaos theory has the potential to upset the status quo applecart if it's allowed to progress without deceptive interference. More on this later.) Further, most of these changes have been orchestrated in a deft and subtle manner within given paradigms, la science philosopher Thomas Kuhn, sometimes even unwittingly, by ...

And a filiation from Herihor would fit very well with Psusennes I's strange reticence concerning his royal filiation (which is only known by inference from his sister-wife's status, at her burial, as a King's Daughter' [see n. 57 above]): the royalty of Herihor would simply have gone virtually unrecognised in the north (as agrees with negative evidence and the limits of Herihor's kingship even in the ...
