81. The Saturn Problem [Journals] [SIS Review]
... ' [22]. Are these descriptions of a brilliant Saturn mere hyperbole, exaggerated wording used by worshippers who were devotees of this particular planet? It seems not. In the driest of astronomical texts from ancient Mesopotamia Saturn is regularly referred to as the planet of the Sun'. As the Assyriologist Morris Jastrow Jr noted in 1910: Strange though it may seem to us, the planet Saturn appears to have been regarded as the sun of night' corresponding to Shamash [the Sun-god] as the sun of the daytime' and the cause of such light as the night furnishes'. [23] A colleague of Jastrow's, Professor J.A . Montgomery, even ...

82. Book Shelf [Journals] [Aeon]
... turn of the century, following his electrical experiments in Colorado Springs, Nikola Tesla proclaimed to the world that messages to and from Earth with the inhabitants of the planet Mars were imminent. In England, Lord Kelvin (William Thomson) was in full agreement with Tesla that Martians were attempting to contact Earth. This was on the basis of strange regular-pulsed, numerical-like signals that were being detected by rudimentary radio reception on both sides of the Atlantic. Curiously, these peculiar signals from space stopped but were detected again by the Naval Observatory in the 1920s. Disappearing a second time, they seemed to resume once more in the 1930s when Karl Jansky, working for Bell Laboratories, constructed ...

... , so Lempi's son sings quite by himself, with a voice loud but hardly musical, indeed, for: On a stump a crane was sitting, On a mound from swamp arising, And his toe-bones he was counting, And his feet he was uplifting, And was terrified extremely At the song of Lemminkainen. Left the crane his strange employment, With his harsh voice screamed in terror, Over Pohjola in terror, And upon his coming thither, When he reached the swamp of Pohja, Screaming still, and screaming harshly, Screaming at his very loudest, Waked in Pohjola the people, And aroused the evil nation. Thus, pursuit begins; impediment after magic impediment ...

84. New Fashions in Catastrophism [Books] [de Grazia books]
... , he allowed many implications to be drawn from geological data pointing to astronomical reorientation of the Earth. And in his conclusion, he made the point forcefully that "The earth repeatedly went through cataclysmic events on a global scale, that the cause of these events was an extraterrestrial agent." He did not deal with electrical phenomena, a strange omission for one who preached an electrified cosmos. (It entered into a supplementary paper that was printed with the book itself.) That much material on electricity could have been considered was shown by William Corliss, who began compiling it during the 1970's; and by V. s friends, especially Ralph Juergens in the 1960's then too ...

... in the days of the Kings, Palestine repeatedly came into contact with Egypt-mostly through being attacked by armies of the pharaohs, campaigns which the pharaohs of the tenth to the sixth centuries usually forgot to mention. 4: T.E . Peet, Egypt and the Old Testament (Liverpool, 1922), p.7 . It is strange that there is no real link between the histories of Egypt and Palestine for a period of many hundreds of years. At least the Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt was an event that should belong to both histories and thus supply a connecting link. We shall therefore try to determine during what period of Egyptian history the Exodus took place ...

... by god would be a blessing and it seems Gildas genuinely believed (and hoped) fire from the heavens was about to fall. Why did he expect fire to fall from the sky? What was happening upstairs to prompt his thoughts of catastrophe? The Confessions [4 ] of St Patrick and the Lives of him [5 ] included strange things - e.g . a dream about Satan falling out of the sky in the form of a great stone which threatened to crush him. The story that St Patrick banished serpents from Ireland has often been ridiculed. Snakes were not part of the fauna. However Patrick did banish (the worship) of serpents (and dragons ...

... wo selbst der Name mit Amelmehl [Greek amylon], Starkemehl, Kraftmehl ubereinstimmt." He even thought of the possibility (although taking this thought for audacious, "gewagt") to derive the family name of Thidrek's clan, i.e ., the name of the Amelunge, from "Amelmehl" We shan't dwell upon the strange information given by Athenaeus (Deipnosophistai 3.1 14f.) about "Achilles, or very fine barley" (cf. Theophr. 8.4-2. Aristoph. Eq. 819: Achilles cake), or on the surname of Ningishzida, namely Zid-zi "Meal of Life" (K . Tallqvist, Akkadische Gotterepitheta, p ...

88. Three Views of Heinsohn's Chronology [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... and the Old-Hittites were true contemporaries whatever the absolute dates eventually assigned to them. Both territories take some 700 years to learn Semitic cuneiform though Old-Akkadian rulers are well acquainted with them and exercise considerable control in these areas adjacent to their empire. When, in the 17th century BC, Semitic cuneiform is adopted in Anatolia and Hyksos Palestine, a strange decision is taken by the language politicians. They decide against the Akkadian lingua franca of their immediate Old-Babylonian predecessors and go for Old-Akkadian - extinct for some 400 years! To this very day nobody knows why such a bizarre decision was taken. Palestine proper yielded only one clearly stratified find of the Hyksos period with a cuneiform inscription. It ...

89. My Kingdom for a Horse ... [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... details. [3 ] Why? I hope here to shed some light on this dark period of history, perhaps the result of a long conspiracy to let it remain so. Archaeologists and Egyptologists are finally doing some important work in this area, and the public is beginning to learn some of the hidden secrets involved. It may be strange for us in the twentieth century to understand how bygone cultures in early civilizations would give up everything- their freedom, for example- for "gods," the trusted four-footed animals we take for granted. According to Josephus [4 ] this most civilized country even built temples to horses and worshiped them, after having turned their sovereignty ...

... 12 Witness to the conversion of Christian churches and cathedrals into mosques by the Moslem, almost solely by the mere addition of a minaret, the chief quarrel thus being merely as to the form of the tower, and both faiths considering a tower indispensable, which is an important consideration in favour of my cosmic theory. To claim all the strange and almost unique ancient Irish church ornamentation as a pure and sudden early Irish Christian eclosion would be counter to all other religious or architectural evolutions. And besides, all the elaborate and sometimes marvellous decorative stone-carving of the Towers and the churches, when peculiar, has no Christianity in it, as an examination of Petrie's own fine drawings makes ...
