2. Thundergods and Thunderbolts [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon VI:1 (Feb 2001) Home | Issue Contents Thundergods and Thunderbolts Ev Cochrane It is the unanimous view of scholars exploring comparative religion that the peculiar mythical traditions surrounding thunderbolts and lightning originated in primitive man's awe before the thunderstorm. Davidson's opinion may be cited as representing the orthodox position: "To people of an earlier civilization, living in vulnerable houses of wood or in tents and caves, such a sight as this [a major thunderstorm] must have been terrifying indeed. It is not surprising then that thunder is visualized, in lands where storms are frequent, as the manifestation of divine power, and symbolized accordingly throughout the world." [ ...
3. Letopolis: city of the thunderbolt (Report) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2001:2 (Jan 2002) Home | Issue Contents Report Letopolis: city of the thunderbolt Phillip Clapham Velikovsky expressed an interest in the ancient Egyptian cult centre of Letopolis. This was due, I assume, to its connection with thunderbolts - and its sacred animal, the shrewmouse. The early-mid 20th century Egyptologist, W.E . Wainwright, is still regarded as an authority on Letopolis (see Journal of Egyptian Archaeology XVIII:1932, p. 164 for an article on Letopolis that is quoted by Velikovsky in Worlds in Collision and by Bauval in The Orion Mystery). Velikovsky was eager to make a connection between mice and ...

All of the unusual motifs listed below find wide distribution in the ancient world- Motif #1 : Lightning ...
5. Indra's Theft of the Sun-God's Wheel [Journals] [Aeon]
... . (128) Support for this conclusion can be found upon examination of the many bizarre traditions surrounding the various weapons of war-gods throughout the ancient world. A review of the evidence leads to the following conclusion: In whatever form the planet Venus was envisaged by the ancients, whether it be as goddess, star, wheel, eye, thunderbolt, dragon, torch, heart-soul, etc., in that form was it said to have been hurled from heaven. We begin with a brief analysis of Indra's heaven-hurled missile, the vajra. It is our opinion that a satisfactory explanation of this weapon would go a long way towards clarifying the original nature of the Vedic war-god. ...
6. News from the Internet [Journals] [SIS Review]
... petroglyphs (or rock art) often represent a plasma "instability" that Peratt sees in his laboratory, and must have been seen by ancient man in the skies. Peratt's research was inspired by Dave Talbott, author the Saturn Myth, and Wal Thornhill whose articles on The Electric Universe have appeared in SIS publications. Their forthcoming book, Thunderbolts of the Gods, is under preparation, but a draft chapter has appeared on the Internet (Web address below) summarising their work. Due to space limitations, several explanatory panels and many illustrations have been removed.

7. The Sulfur Connection [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. XII No. 3 (Spring 1988) Home | Issue Contents The Sulfur Connection Dwardu Cardona In analyzing the possible cause behind the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah some years back, I discussed those ancient sources which persisted in connecting the odor of sulfur with thunderbolts(1 ) Why thunderbolts were at all considered as possible agents of this destruction was made clear even earlier.(2 ) At that time I excluded all observations from modern times that might have been germane to the analysis because, to tell the truth, I was only aware of one that of Benjamin Franklin's 1749 report to the Royal Society in London. In that report, Franklin listed ...

9. Jove's Thunderbolts. File III (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... From "Stargazers and Gravediggers" © 1983 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Jove's Thunderbolts MY UNDERSTANDING OF THE NATURE of the sun and planets made me assume that these bodies are charged, or that, at least, their atmospheres are strongly ionized. I wished for several years that a check could be made on Jupiter. I took the opportunity of my lecture before the Graduate College Forum of Princeton University on October 14, 1953, and after presenting many reasons for believing that the members of the solar system- the sun, the planets, the satellites, the comets, the meteorites- are not electrically or magnetically neutral, made the following statement: In Jupiter ...

... flowing hair. There is a history of disaster overtaking mortals who saw a god or goddess. The goddess Hera says: "The gods are hard to look upon in their full brightness." [3 ]. The soldiers of Alexander the Great were blinded when they invaded the temple of Demeter at Miletus. Anchises was blinded by a thunderbolt for boasting of his union with Aphrodite. When Hannibal wished to carry off a golden column from Juno's temple at Lacinium, he tested it with a drill and did find it solid gold, but then had a dream in which he was warned that if he removed the column he would lose the sight of his good eye. He ...
